I Thank you for the input. a I can not recreate your filter. How have you managed to do such a great list. As for my filter, I recommend looking at professional reviews such as ones done by jonnyguru or TPU before purchase of any psu.

As for the nvidia driver issue, I have seen fps drops in my gtx 760 once 960 came and same can be seen with 750ti performance upon release of 950. Look at some reviews at gamegpu.ru to start this journey of understanding if you seek the truth.

thermal camera benching at that scale has very little application and its more of a novelty thing in my opinion. most of the data could have been collected by othr means. the thermal camera is fairly useful for checking cooling performance of a gpu cooler or mobo chips. for example you can see where the mobo cant dissipate its heat. or compare various gpu brands (e.g. msi vs asus) coolers by capturing thermal reading for vrm's, mem-chips and other voltage circuitry components. removing the back plate and fan shroud should help with getting data althu it still wouldn't be easy.

you can play minecraft + many good games on mid and sometimes hi settings w 1080 res on an A10 APU with a corresponding crossfire GPU if you are not planing on gaming in UHD. the crossfire GPU with 6800k for example is Radeon HD6670.

AX series are based on Seasonic=crazy coil whine. Get the RM650 for no(or at least much less) coil whine. asus mobos are usually less likely to have coil whine. there are better configs for using ssd. 1) you can raid 0 two 120GB ssd and have a get hhd for media use.

get a 1866 ram minimum. with a tight and close to 9 timing. personally i would get kingston or patriot. next get a psu in 600w range and ditch the hhd not the ssd. FYI the PRO is their top of the line model. evo is in between 840 and 840 pro. The evo gets its boost from software(not ideal).

if you going for mild oc then 212 evo should be sufficient. pair that with a nice thermal paste like mx-4 if u want the 3-5% exta cooling and make sure u have air circulation in the case.
