GPU Fan Mods: Worth it?
Hey SFFPC! I'm beginning my journey into the porta-PC world with project Quark.
My biggest question for this project is: Would it be smart to mod my card with some Noctua slim fans instead of leaving the stock cooler? At some point later down the line I would like to put an HDPLEX AC-DC in the box to have a brickless build. I fear that the shroud on the card may have a small ridge that makes it too tight to fit. If I can get a slimmer profile on the card, I would like to very much.
I have no experience in part modding besides removing and reinstalling a GPU shroud for heatsink and fan cleaning. If I can buy a third party heatsink to make the process easier/less potentially damaging to my wallet, I can go that extra mile.
I plan to stuff it all in a Skyreach 4 Mini. The card I plan to get is the Zotac RTX 2070 Super Mini.
All advice is very appreciated!

That GPU is now 1 generation behind and you can find RTX 2070’s that perform better for as low as $500.

Plus going forward it will be less and less capable with newer games.

So that price is very good but here is another option:

It’s more expensive, but they are pretty much the same. I went on b and h and the first card was still in stock so I would go for the first one if you can.

Check out amazon, they have a ZOTAC GAMING 2070 super for about $500

While they would be decent upgrades, you'd be mostly looking at B stock and refurbs for those cards now. Zotac just had a refurbed 1080 for < $300.
With your budget you might consider looking at the "mini" versions of this gen's cards like https://www.amazon.com/ZOTAC-GeForce-Graphics-IceStorm-Zt-T20710E-10M/dp/B07XSPWMP9

If you can do $500 you should be able to pick up an RTX 2070 super. https://www.amazon.com/ZOTAC-GeForce-Graphics-IceStorm-Zt-T20710E-10M/dp/B07XSPWMP9/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=2070+super&qid=1588166941&sprefix=2070+super&sr=8-3
I think you'd be happiest long term with that. Gaming performance is on par or slightly better than the 1080ti and being new you'd get a full warranty.

I just got this off of Amazon. It might be a little spendier than you're looking for.

It's back in stock on June 15th. You should get one of the first cards from the batch if you preorder.

Good advice, although I already ordered something from Amazon, although it seems inline with the prices on nvidia's site and appears to be founders edition.

This seems like the best build, but just know that a lot of people are still having driver issues with the 5700 XT. The only way it seems to work is if you boot into safe mode, run DDU, then install the new drivers for every single driver update.
If I were you, I'd go for a 2060 Super, or if the budget allows, a 2070 Super.
For example, I have the same version of this card, just a non Super and it's fantastic: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07XSPWMP9/ref=cm_sw_r_em_apa_i_UPKuEb36WYK77
If you went 2060 Super, you might see a very, very slight decrease in performance compared to the 5700 XT, but you'll just be able to install it and know it works. Also, if you wanted to record or stream in the future, you can take advantage of the NVENC encoder on the card.
Lastly, you could take advantage of CUDA for Blender, as well as Optix with Ray Tracing : https://docs.blender.org/manual/en/latest/render/cycles/gpu_rendering.html
It's up to you though. If you want to gamble with drivers for a few more fps, then that's all you.

So you are saying AMD Ryzen 5 3600 over i5-9600k?
Is this benchmark any accurate? https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i5-9600K-vs-AMD-Ryzen-5-3600/4031vs4040
Also I meant to say Zotac 2070 Super Mini as opposed to the regular 2070. This card: https://www.amazon.com/ZOTAC-GeForce-Graphics-IceStorm-Zt-T20710E-10M/dp/B07XSPWMP9/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=2070+zotac+super&qid=1584032403&sr=8-1

I considered what you say, and for sure agree that a 2070 would be the better option for me, I've found this one ( https://www.amazon.com/ZOTAC-GeForce-Graphics-IceStorm-Zt-T20710E-10M/dp/B07XSPWMP9/ref=sr_1_1?crid=1J78ZSROMW8Y7&dchild=1&keywords=rtx%2B2070%2Bsuper%2Bcompact&qid=1592346653&sprefix=compact%2B2070%2Bsuper%2Caps%2C186&sr=8-1&th=1 ) which is compact, and it would fit for sure. So to replace my PSU, what would you recommend? do i buy a 600 watt? or is that too much. and is that going to be too big to fit in the case? any help would be great, and thanks for your other response too, saved me 200 dollars lol.

5700XT should be slightly worse, but 100$ less in some places 5700xt, 2070S. I would go amd, not only for the price/performace, but also because on linux, theres a similar situation to the driver issues, but nvidia has the bad drivers, and amd's are close to perfect. in both circumstanses, problems are very rare, but please, dont pay 100$ more for some alleged driver issues

I'm gonna be honest with u that this laptop does not exist.
I know that all my recommendations are egpu's but in this case it the best option.
Look for a laptop with thunderbolt 3, and an egpu.
Here is one I found for you, it is in USD however:
Dell XPS 15 : 1700
And the eGPU to go with it
Razer Core X Enclosure - 300
RTX 2070 Super - 500
With the left over 500-700 you can get a decent monitor, keyboard, mouse, and headset. I used to have this set up before I built my PC. I would use the XPS while walking around and doing work, and plug into the monitor and everything else with one cable since the EGPU has USB ports. And if you want, you can bring the egpu with you anywhere.

you can definitely do with a better monitor with a bigger budget

Your first problem was expecting reasonable prices from eBay.

Ok, then the components that I have mentioned are within your budget. All combined totals to $1840. I haven't included a cabinet. Get whichever you find appealing. If you also need a monitor, keyboard and mouse then you can go for these components instead :- Ram Motherboard Gpu Psu Game storage Monitor . CPU , cpu cooler and primary drive are the same that I shared previously.

I received this system yesterday and wanted to update the group on what I received. First of all, it was packed well in a cardboard box with fitted styrofoam inside. There was an inflated shipping bag on the interior of the case as was expected. The GPU and RAM were all seated correctly. I just had to remove the plastic protecting the tempered glass in the front and side and plug everything in.
What I received: the GPU, from what I call tell, is a Zotac RTX 2070 Super Mini. The motherboard is an Asrock B450m/ac. The SSD is a PNY CS900 500gb SSD. The power supply is a Gamdias Kratos M1-550b with RGB. The RAM was 16GB of HP DDR4-3200 16-18-18-38. Finally, the case appears to be the Gamdias Talos E1.
SkyTech also included their RGB keyboard and mouse. The mouse feels a little tacky, but the keyboard is great. In fact, I think I prefer the feel of it to my Corsair K55, though it does not have macro keys like the Corsair. The case has removable magnetic filters on the bottom below the power supply and on top.
No issues getting things up and running, updating Windows, activating XMP to get the RAM at 3200, updating NVIDIA drivers, etc. My test game last night was The Outer Worlds. I went with the NVIDIA control panel’s recommendations for the settings and most were at Very High. With those settings, the game looked beautiful and I was between 90-120fps on my 27” 1440p 144hz AOC monitor. (My previous build had a GTX 1650 and could barely break 60fps with Low settings.)
Wiring on the inside is neat. They used zip ties to gather together all the wires on the back side of the chassis. The excess for all the wires is tucked away in one of the slots of the HDD/SSD cage. You could add a drive to one of the slots of the cage but you’ll have to pull out the wires tucked away. The case is fairly quiet, even when gaming.
The only two shortcomings that I’ve discovered thus far: first, the power cord is pretty short. I had to use another power cord that I had on hand. Second, no USB C. Plenty of USB 3.0, but no C.
All in all, I am pretty happy with the performance and how it looks with the three RGB fans. I have a couple builds under my belt, but I purchased this because the price was so competitive ($1049, no tax, free shipping) and I am not disappointed. I was surprised by the RGB power supply, keyboard and mouse. The mouse is thus far the only component I don’t really enjoy. RGB RAM might be nice too, but I’m happy with the speed of it so I don’t think I’ll replace it. I’ll add a 1 or 2TB M.2 2280 SSD sometime in the future, but other than that I may just leave everything stock for the time being.
I hope this was useful. If you’d like to see some pics, you can access them here.
