Top tips for new builds

PC GAMER (UK) - - HARDWARE -

1 Use an SSD

SSDs use a frac­tion of the power of a tra­di­tional hard drive, and they bring bet­ter per­for­mance, too.

2 get a Smart Mobo

Some moth­er­boards, like MSI’s ECO line, al­low you to dis­able un­used fea­tures to save power.

3 Spend more on a PS U

Spend a lit­tle more on a power sup­ply unit and you can reach up to 90% ef­fi­ciency.

4 Try Fewer fans

Fans eat up power and gen­er­ate noise – use as few of them as you can get away with.
