  1. To begin with, i have changed from a Zen 2 based CPU to last gen's architecture, which that was the R7 2700 (as suggested above me). You do lose that Zen 2 improvements in IPC, ram speed and stuff but at that 60 AUD delta between the R7 2700 and the R5 3600, i guess it's ok to shave it down. Which brings down here PCPartPicker Part List CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 2700 3.2 GHz 8-Core Processor ($232.10 @ Newegg Australia) Motherboard: ASRock B450M Steel Legend Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard ($124.00 @ Shopping Express) Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory ($101.20 @ Newegg Australia) Storage: Crucial MX500 500 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($79.00 @ Shopping Express) Video Card: Sapphire Radeon RX 5700 8 GB PULSE Video Card ($595.10 @ Newegg Australia) Case: In Win 301 MicroATX Mini Tower Case ($80.00 @ Austin Computers) Power Supply: Thermaltake Toughpower Grand RGB 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply ($89.00 @ Shopping Express) Wireless Network Adapter: TP-Link Archer T4E PCIe x1 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi Adapter ($42.30 @ Device Deal) Total: $1342.70 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-12-03 04:14 AEDT+1100
  2. Any ideas leading this to be a flagship killer that we've wanted or just another "OnePlus"? (Realme Global CEO, Sky Li)



  3. to this community Hello. To start this I live in Asia, to be more specific I am Indonesian. As you've known this market is crowded with these chinese brands. They're aggressive with many phone releases and doesn't innovate that much as they try to combine what's on the shelf then plays on software and price. So I am here to bring you my temporary thoughts on this Chinese phone, its a Realme 5 Pro. Got this second handed, $170 USD converted, physically brand new just been rarely used. Because it was announced August this year anyway and probably begun selling in October. Also since Realme is on India and Europe I will try not to be biased as if Realme is only here. On paper this phone does get you far, running a Snapdragon 712, 4/128 (UFS 2.1) Memory config, 6.3 inch dew-drop 1080p 60hz IPS display, 4035 mAh with 20W charger in box. And a total anti deal-breaker it has a USB 2.0 type-C port with the 3.5mm jack on the phone. Yes, these things are the reason I picked it over anything at this price. On software, Android 9 out of the box with Color OS 6 which is quite near stock for me and you can take a look here Performance is smooth overall without lags or breaks that's meaningful. Gaming is stomped with ease as it's a SD 712. And I meant ease on CODM and those other big multiplayer games, this is truly a beast in games. On the feature set, this iteration of Color OS does bring you features that ease things like long screenshot, usual 3 finger screenshot, raise to wake up, stock screen recorder and for bloatware it breaks down to 5 unerasable, usefuln't apps as you can guess from the image above. The gripes are the settings, it's quite hard to get what you want (moving from Stock android without going to "Search". I haven't got to the camera before and GSMArena is the way to go for the results of it, click here Looking at the spec, it's a 4 camera setup with a main 48MP Sony IMX 586 sensor @ f/1.8, 8MP Ultrawide @ f/2.2, two 2MP units one for depth and one for macro. As in GSMArena the camera setup reliable with short processing overall, the front camera can grab face details at the "honest and clear" level and can turn off beautification entirely. Portraits are able to diminish object from background in the "Great" just a tick behind "Amazing" level with the recap from the website "Ultrawide and Macro needs software work". What I can say for the battery, is it charges from 15% to 92% with the in box charger in 1 hour 12 minutes and I am not a usage tracker but there's the data in my phone. 9 hours 44 minutes of usage with screen on time of 4 hours 17 minutes in this day of posting. And I was able to get through the day to afternoon comfortably. I would categorize this lightly used though, with internet browsing being the main usage. So that's what I have for now, and Realme on it's credit is approaching a stock android experience with out of stock features and that each phone is going to get 2 years of support from them, so there will be many to be covered. Thanks community
  4. I have been looking at phones recently and one of the most interesting thing i want to know, does phones fully break the charge when they are full? For example i looked Realme 5s has "Overcharge Protection" labeled in the website overview, and i am very assured flagships have this thing and they didn't even advertise this. From there I was researching it until now, and i need your help to answer... Thanks peple
  5. Oh by "not good" you meant is the mileage you get when its configurable at 800W? And charging it would be frequent? ok i get the point but do you think it will last a year or more before i search out for a battery replacement?
  6. Hey may i ask how did you deal the taxes when you get the FX 504? Im indonesian as well and im looking to buy things from amazon and gearbest (just thought Shopee was a ripoff of gearbest)
  7. oh hi fellow indonesian i live and originated there My guess is i would pick those prebuilts with sandybridge i5 since it comes at Rp 2.400.000 (at least in East Java that i found). The one i found has a 240GB SSD and no discrete graphics
  8. is it not good at long term use? if it has short lifespans i could look up for the battery replacements. I havent found the ones from the kit maker yet soo.. custom way to do it?
  9. If youre looking to spend as little as possible then go for the 2070 super as its sufficient for high refresh rate 1440p gaming (+120fps) for the 2080s i would pick the EVGA one since even the lowest tier evga gpus are reliable
  10. Ah nice, im guessing that is DIY ebike kit? also how much battery life did you get with your usage? just found out my local brand sells this $350 kit consists of the battery too (22.2v 6Ah, Chinese Grade "A") So, on paper will you recommend this? up to 45km of mileage (mhm dependant on bike spec)
  11. this is it chief, probably gunna import it hehe i mean i could find a better bike than what i have now and making that as a hobby to work on, or just swap a better frame and wheels
  12. So what if i use the slower kits? like the ones claimed at 35km/h? also theres a local brand here (i say reputable) at indonesia thats selling a 350W kit claiming 40km/h for $250 USD do you think that the bike i posted will handle it?
  13. Thanks for the quick reply So its a MTB with Alumunium 6061 (forgot how "inch" big it is) Im ok with how much it is going to cost and what about those ebike kits? are they a quick solution to this? downloadfile-2.bin
  14. Hello people At the time of curiousity i was interested into bicycles, then found out that normal bikes can be an e-bike. And now im having a real case scenario that i could benefit from e-bikes. I have a bike that i rarely use and i want it converted to an e-bike. first of all its for going to school. so i need take or give 60km/h because its a 6km trip. other than that i haven't decided to make the e-bike kit my self or buy the built ones. So i need help to make an e-bike kit myself, i have a difficulty understanding the concept So what parts do i need and i want experience from you who have done it or fiddle around with it Thanks
  15. its gonna be a regular 2006 manual or matic (paddle shifts FTW) FD, and im planning to bodykit with the one in the image. A silver mugen RR concept i guess my plan is im gonna find a centered single pipe then route it to those fake "tips" so they actually do something. hopefully this car (manual, silver) is what im getting, hopefully in 2 years someone will sell a fd like this again
