  1. Here are all the NVME drives sorted by best $/GB: https://nz.pcpartpicker.com/products/internal-hard-drive/#t=0&sort=ppgb&D=1
  2. Wait for next gen Nvidia GPU's, otherwise something like an R3 3300X would be good if all you do is game and allows for more of a GPU spend. If you want to stream or maybe do some multi-core workloads the R5 3600 is great.
  3. Happy to help but you need to actually link you build list link, not the pcpartpicker URL. It will look like this:
  4. That's literally what I use my 2.0 splitter for, RGB controllers haha.
  5. Personally I recommend 500GB-1TB for a main boot drive and if you need more space just get a 1-2TB HDD down the road. Although getting an SSD with DRAM cache is important for a boot drive and those can cost a bit more. That said the 1-2TB range is usually the best $/GB option. For SSD's (assuming USD): https://pcpartpicker.com/products/internal-hard-drive/#t=0&sort=ppgb&page=1 For NVME: https://pcpartpicker.com/products/internal-hard-drive/#t=0&sort=ppgb&D=1 I think the 1TB Crucial P1 is a great option, NVME with DRAM cache. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/pxKcCJ/crucial-p1-1tb-m2-2280-solid-state-drive-ct1000p1ssd8
  6. 110% worth it, also so much more affordable now even just as an OS drive a good 240GB option will not cost much.
  7. USB 2.0 header splitters is the best bet, I use them in 2 of my systems, they work perfectly.
  8. Welcome to the forum! 750W is a lot, what are you specs? 90% of PC's are likely more than fine with a 550-650W PSU, and as long as you get a quality one you are fine. And at 650W you have good options available fore less $$$ as well. Keep in mind there is a PSU shortage ATM so make your purchase quick. Here are good ATX options (assuming USD): https://pcpartpicker.com/product/J7F48d/cooler-master-mwe-gold-650-w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-atx-power-supply-mpy-6501-afaag-us https://pcpartpicker.com/product/v6gzK8/cooler-master-mwe-gold-750-w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-atx-power-supply-mpy-7501-afaag-us https://pcpartpicker.com/product/2HbwrH/corsair-rmx-2018-650w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-atx-power-supply-cp-9020178-na https://pcpartpicker.com/product/jtm323/corsair-rm-2019-850-w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-atx-power-supply-cp-9020196-na I recommend the 650W RMx.
  9. Yeah definitely a bit of an inconvenience for sure. I've had semi weird issues with my XPS in the past when I upgraded the m.2, it was related to Intel storage drivers, and the update kept failing. The ONLY fix was running prompts to end the process, but the final true fix was a complete fresh install of Windows 10 that then allowed for the install of the latest drivers. Other than trying to uninstall and re-install related drivers the only other fix may be a complete fresh install pf Windows unfortunately. Any other fix in my mind would likely be more of a time commitment anyways, just annoying to deal with though. This is why Linus is much better. Kinda amazing how Windows continues to have many issues, although IMO the overall Windows 10 usability and experience has gotten a lot better in the last 2-years, but stuff like this is very frustrating.
  10. But the GPU is up against a shroud regardless. As long as you have two intake fans on the H210 you are fine. No problem!
  11. Yeah the market push is not for inverted cases so there really is not a lot of options.
  12. I liked to watch full build guides while building my first PC's, it's not hard just take your time. If you build on a hard surface the risk of static shock is very low. You can always plug in the PSU (powered off) and touch it now and then to ground yourself.
  13. Not many options but here are the few I found: - Corsair Carbide 600C Inverse ATX Case - RIOTORO CR1080 Mini-ATX Case - Thermaltake Core G3 Gaming Slim ATX Chassis - SilverStone RV04 Full Tower Case
  14. Considering you seem to have RAM and CPU heat issues, what is your case setup?
  15. If the motherboard does not support 3rd gen Ryzen out of the box, then yes it is necessary as you will not be able to boot. Verify with the selling vendor if it is compatible with 3rd gen Ryzen, otherwise you need a 1st or 2nd gen Ryzen processor in order to boot itno bios, and update the bios to the latest version. AMD has a loaner program for a CPU so this can be done, but it is a major hassle and I would just get a motherboard that supports 3rd gen already. MSI B450 'Max' motherboards support 3rd gen out of the box, but I would recommend B550/X570.
  16. If you are looking at GPU's consider waiting for next gen, you could always get a cheaper air cooler to use in the meantime.
  17. Maybe some case modding? Or a larger ITX tower, the Phanteks Evolv ITX is larger.
  18. Yeah I would recommend waiting without question. Yeah high refresh rate IPS is more expensive, I personally won't get anything that isn't IPS though. Next monitor also needs to be HDR600 at the least. Yeah the LG is pretty nice!
  19. No worries, yeah that's to bad. Is the Z63 new? Why not go for a 240mm AIO?
  20. Fair enough! But yeah the Pro M is solid, I liked it a lot, only sold it because it no longer met my needs and I wanted to downsize to a smaller mid-tower, ended up with the Meshify C.
  21. Not sure what could be exactly causing this, but this is why IT loves asking you if you turned it off and back on again. I don't know that I would worry about it.
  22. The F31 suppressor does a good job of suppressing airflow lol (big shock I know), better if you leave the front door open though. I owned that case in the past. ironically the Phanteks Pro M was the case I upgraded to at the time, MUCH better airflow.
