    I don't want to speak for AddRAM but....

    I believe he was just pointing out that if you did consider a new PSU that the prices were decent on the ones mentioned......

    Your current 850 should prove more than sufficient for you build but if it is getting old you might want to consider a new one......IMHO the PSU is the most important component in any build......without pure clean regulated power your other components will leave the scene earlier than they should.......
    The PSU will be brand new, it's on order now. It is the 850 G3, seeing it's brand new I don't see the point in sending it back for another 150 watts and maybe a slightly higher efficiency rating is worth it at the moment....I am eager to get going

    A problem using USB 3.0 ports on many computers is there is no support for them in the BIOS [maybe in some of the very newest] until the Operating System is up and running. No problem with booting to a USB 2.0 Thumb drive but some need to retain the FAT32 formatting when creating such a drive. I've done them using the choice in Media Creation Tool, both 64-bit and 32-bit. Latest I did a couple of days ago was Version 1607 Build 14393.442, didn't take long to update to 14393.693.
    I have quite a few 3.0 drives laying around but to be honest I'm not too sure if I have a 2.0. I can pick one up just as easily but any harm in using a 3.0 drive but just plugging it into the native 2.0 ports on my mobo?

    If you never intend to get a 2nd card then an 850 will be fine, the reason I said to go with the 850 P2 is because it`s only $10 more.

    I have a 1000 P2 and a 1200 P2, not one problem from either PSU.

    The G3 has a 10 year warranty, so you should be fine.

    Everything has been delivered save some new thermal compound (not that important as I have a ton of it left over from older builds) and my extensions cables which aren't imperative but they'll allow me to hide my cable better....I can put with it for a few days.

    I believe all I have left to do is backup a small portion of data on old PC and create a bootable UEFI USB drive. I have a Win10 DVD do you all recommend MCT or Rufus when creating a bootable UEFI USB drive? Also, I have a spare 16GB 3.0 USB that is empty, can I use that and put it in a 2.0 port? I heard somebody talking about mobos not having native 3.0 drives out of box.

    EDIT: Also, I wanted to upload a photo but the upload tool would say it's uploading something but nothing would come over. Will try again later.

    Had to pick up a H100i, couldn't seem to get H115i to fit properly for me with my components. I'm okay with this, actually like the smaller radiator.
    Got her up and running. Since I am using an open shroud GPU I mounted the radiator to the front of the case. I replaced the fans that came with the case with the one's provided by the H100i...I know oft times the fans that come with these AIOs aren't great so should I look at different fans? I will try to get a picture to show you how it is mounted just to be sure I did it properly. Idle temps are hovering around 45C, so far so good.

    Installing onto the NVMe SSD was fairly easy. I had been suggested to set it up in RAID 0 in case I ever intend to get a 2nd one but couldn't seem to get it to work. Can these drives work with Intel's RT? It is definitely in AHCI at least, as are my 850 Pro and 1.5TB WD Black (waiting on my 5TB).

    Still waiting on my extensions cables so I can do cleaning but so far it looks really sharp...I still can't seem to get photos to upload but I can share yall a OneDrive link.

    Anything in particular I need to do with the NVMe SSD to optimize it for Win10?

    I use these 2 types for space reasons, and have them hooked straight to 12 volt, they`re both very quiet.

    Air Series SP140 LED Red High Static Pressure 140mm Fan Twin Pack

    Thermaltake - Global - Luna 14 Slim LED White - CL-F036-PL14WT-A

    The stock fans that come with a Corsair cooler are terribly loud.

    When you post a reply choose Go Advanced and there`s a small paperclip icon at the top, just click that to add your picture/s

    Thanks for sharing those links. I know how to upload photos, the upload tool says it's uploading my photo and then nothing happens. I've tried both dragging and dropping the file and browsing for it, neither works. When I hit done it asks me to upload a photo when it appears I had already done so.

    I changed it from the default way to upload pics to this view, much easier. Brink showed me how to do it.
