  1. Funny, I just built my build last night and one of the psrts I had to give up on was the cpu cooler third party. The brackets that came with deep cool were not correct length to screw into the msi motherboard cpu socket holes. So I had to put the amd one on instead and contacted deep cool about it.
  2. Thank you! I decided to go with deepcool of those four, as it’s the only one that would arrive before Saturday!
  3. I’m planning on using photoshop for school and gaming on the weekends playing steam games like tomb raider.

Pretty open to having some “fun” with RGB and price around 50 dollars or so. Thanks!
  4. Wha do you think? For a 4K photoshop and gaming monitor does it hold its ground?
  5. https://evedevices.com saw this ad on Facebook (I know) and wanted to know from you guys if this was a legit company to invest in?
  6. Anyone recommend or know of a good keyboard keycap sampler?
  7. If so, I’ll cancel the first order so I can save money and time keyboard, mouse, speakers and case fans are what I have left to go!
  8. The PSU will be delayed so i ordered a second one https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B07WQYM74W?tag=pcpapi-20&linkCode=ogi&th=1&psc=1 This should come within the next week. Is this one still ok for my specs? 3600, 5700xt
  9. What are your thoughts on the LG 27UL500-W? It’s a lot cheaper while only missing the adjustable stand.
  10. https://www.apple.com/us-hed/shop/product/HMUA2VC/A/lg-ultrafine-4k-display While twice the price as some of the recommended monitors, i do wonder if this is a good option since i do plan on connecting my MacBook to it, while using it for adobe photoshop work on my pc.
  11. I have struggled to find the right motherboard for my build. I have 2000 budget and will be using it for college, photoshop work as a photography major. I have a 5 3600 and 2700xt with 32 gb ram. I want a motherboard that is B550, preferably comes with WiFi. My case only has usb 3.0 and 2.0 on the front (with audio too), so no usb c front headers are required. I plan to have 4 fans. MSI MPG B550 Gaming Edge WiFi Gaming This is what i bought. I plan to also have a blue ray disk drive, a few hard drives down the road, and currently will use a nvme to run windows for photoshop and a SATA ssd for Linux gaming. Is this going to work out for me? Or did i make a poor choice?
  12. G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800) Desktop Memory Model F4-3600C16D-32GVKC I ordered this after reviewing YouTube reviews and recommendations for higher builds. Photography student building pc, adobe photoshop use and steam gaming. 3600 and 5700xt i want 32 GB ram minimum. I have a 2000 dollar budget, so about 100-200 for ram. Any suggestions?
  13. I am fine with wired or wireless. I did some measurements using the forum’s guide and my results were Length: 12.19 cm Width: 6.86 cm I definitely liked https://pcpartpicker.com/product/xgrcCJ/razer-deathadder-elite-wired-optical-mouse-rz01-02010100-r3u1 when I tried it at Best Buy pre-COVID. They had a 50 dollar keyboard that was comfortable too. I am currently using my magic keyboard for the iPad Pro and i love it... so maybe something similar? I also loved the 2015 MacBook Pro keyboard, before they switched to the butterfly ones.
  14. I think it’s interesting how of all hardware for a PC, the PSU has been the hardest for me to dissect, from interpreting biases to determining true value and quality. I have a 3600 and 5700xt The PSU I announced i bought won’t arrive for another week and a half, so I’m very much still open for other suggestions.
  15. I ended up with several options and chose Seasonic Focus GX-550, 550W 80+ Gold due to when it would ship, as all of them had different shipping dates. I hope i made a good choice... the other choices i had in my cart were Seasonic Focus GX-650 Cooler Master MPY-7501-AFAAG-US MWE 750 Gold Full Modular, 80+ Gold Certified 750W Power Supply, 5 Year Warranty be quiet! Straight Power 11 550W, BN617, Fully Modular, 80 Plus Gold, Power Supply
