    Vibrations could be causing something else loose in the case to vibrate. Could be bad fan. Could be off balanced. Could be something getting caught in the fan. Could be that you weren't able to screw it in with all mounting screws and it's vibrating against the case (why not? can you post a picture of how it's mounted). Could just be that it's a bloody loud fan.

    The EVGA G3 850W is a very loud unit. 30-50dBa. Cybernetics EVGA G3 850W Sample 1 Cybernetics EVGA G3 850W Sample 2 Tom's Hardware EVGA G3 850W Review.

  4. This is the iBuyPower system as close as I could get it. Case is different since their case is custom iBuyPower branded, but everything else is the same. Looks like the AIO is a Corsair H60 (older one), but for some reason it has different red fans on it? Maybe Corsair sells the AIO without fans to SIs at a cheaper price? Checking the website the mouse and keyboard that come with it cost $9 and $14 respectively, so just added similarly priced ones from PCPP.

It's not horrible value considering it's mostly going to be bought by people who have no idea what they're doing and wouldn't consider building it themselves anyway... But as a surprise to no-one it's still cheaper to build it yourself. For me so far I'm going to say the iBuypower is in the lead, at least in terms of value. Component choice makes sense for the most part and the 9600K + GTX 1070 is a good pairing. Nothing that I would be offended by, though if it were me I would use a better SSD (860 evo, MX500, WD Blue), and DDR4 3000MHz memory (not sure what frequency was used, but the other systems had 2400MHz so I assumed that), which in total would add maybe an extra $25 to the cost of the system, but those are more minor nitpicks when it comes to prebuilt systems, and not something most people would be concerned by. That Origin PC with an i5 8400 + 1050Ti that was over the budget of $1500, costing $1575 is another matter.... Clearly the cost went in to the poster, mouse pad, T-shirt, stickers, game codes, etc; because it definitely did not go in to the cost of the system. This is easily the worst value system of the lot. Could save over $500 by building it yourself, probably even over $600 if you went mATX instead of ITX as the case and motherboard are quite expensive (as is usual for ITX stuff). Even though their phone sales support in the first episode was pretty good, I think Origin is going to walk away from this as the clear loser (excluding CyberPower). They have the worst performing parts of the systems, they were over budget, and they're charging over $1500 for a system that should be under $1000 (and at that point you would be better off with an $800 Ryzen 2600 system)... The Origin PC is a rip off.

    Seems like some things are quite overpriced there. Just put the prices of them in to googles currency converter and the TX550M and Be Quiet Pure Power 10 400W works out to be about $110 USD. If there any any other stores you can buy from locally maybe check what units they have available and see if they have better prices? "but that VS450 is not a terrible PSU"? I think you might have started to write "is not a good PSU" then changed the sentence to "Is a terrible PSU" mid way through...?

    I think all RX 580s come with at least 1 8pin connectors... They're a 180-200W card.

    450 watt powerSupply ?

    Yeah, that's going to be tight. I was going to recommend either the Be Quiet Pure Power 10 400W or the Corsair TX550M, or maybe even the Cougar GX-F 650W (don't know a lot about this unit)... However unfortunately they're almost double your budget... The best unit I can see anywhere near your budget would be the CoolerMaster MWE 650W for 250AED. You don't need 650W, but it looks they don't have any lower wattage MWE units. If anyone else wants to have a look through and see what else they can find... https://uae.souq.com/ae-en/power-supply/power-supplies-83/thermaltake|corsair|cooler-master|silverstone|antec|cougar|evga|be-quiet/a-t-7/s/?sortby=cp_asc&section=2&page=1 It really is just Thermaltake Litepower, EVGA N1, and orange label Corsair VS units at that price point though...

    Alright, I'll have a quick look to see what else might be available for you... What's your budget? By the way, the VS450 listed on the souq.com website is different to the one you linked on the corsair website. The one on the Souq.com website with the orange label is a much older design and you shouldn't buy it.

    ... Why does that matter?

    Looks like they're buying in the UK; they linked to the UK website for the VS450... Should be about 45 pounds in the UK for a CX450M.

    450W is more than enough. If anything, the PCPP list will be overestimating how much you need, though it tends to be more accurate than other wattage calculators I've seen. I would get a better unit though, like the CX450M.
  12. Yeah, frequency is misleading. There's been a lot of architectural improvements and IPC (Instructions Per Clock) improvements in the 10 years since the AMD Phenom X4 965. Also the Ryzen 2600 supports SMT (Simultaneous Multi Threading) so it's 6 cores / 12 threads. Support for things such as faster DDR4 memory as well. It's also a lot more power efficient and will be easier to cool. The AMD Phenom ii X4 965 will score about 300 points in Cinebench. The Ryzen 5 2600 will score about 1300 points in Cinebench. (according to the random youtube videos I just looked at running the tests with each CPU) Blown out of proportion, though there is a grain of truth to it... PSUs have efficiency curves and they are often least efficient below 20% load, and most efficient somewhere between 30-70%, though it varies depending on the individual unit. Efficiency for your CoolerMaster SilentPro 1000 Watt (Bronze): http://www.coolermaster.com/powersupply/power-supplies-by-series/silent-pro-m1000/ http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&amp;op=Story2&amp;reid=166 Your PSU has about 84% efficiency at 20% load (200W) according to CoolerMasters website and JonnyGuru reviews. 81.3% efficiency at 10% load (100W). For 80+ Bronze rating, a PSU only needs 82% efficiency at 20% load (115V). So at 100W it might only a difference of <1% efficiency between your specific 1000W 80+ Bronze unit and another 500W 80+ Bronze unit. Realistically 1% efficiency isn't going to make a difference to your power bill. ... Regardless of this you should still replace the PSU when you build the new system anyway, as it's quite old and won't be designed for modern hardware.

    Upgrade Advice

    1060 is only 120W, so again you really only going to be drawing less than 250W. Could just grab a CX450M for 45 pounds. The Pure Power 10s from Be Quiet are good as well. Looks to be 10 pounds cheaper than the Corsair TX550M/TX650M which is showing 75 pounds on Amazon for me. Much better fan and noise on the Be Quiet Pure Power 10 CM500 PSUs as well. Do you have the EVGA B 600W, EVGA BR 600W, EVGA BQ 600W, or EVGA W1 600W?
