  1. Wouldn't pay more than $300.
  2. It doesn't go that way mate. Yeah, at stock speed, there wont be much of a difference. Consider a cpu. As we overclock it high, the power draw increases and the heat output also increases significantly. And this is not a constant graph. Now, coming back to ryzen, turn on PBO and run those power consumption tests again, you'll understand the difference.
  3. I guess you are mixing up TDP and power consumption. Technically speaking, tdp is not exactly the power consumption. The thermal design power (TDP), sometimes called thermal design point, is the maximum amount of heat generated by a computer chip or component (often a CPU, GPU or system on a chip) that the cooling system in a computer is designed to dissipate under any workload.
  4. That meshify c is an excellent case. My wife has got one and it looks too good.
  5. Get your a x5670/5680 from AliExpress/eBay. They go for around $20 and $30 a pop respectively with free international shipping. OC them and you'll be fine. Just update your bios to the latest version available.
  6. I'll recommend something like this instead... PCPartPicker Part List CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1600 3.2 GHz 6-Core Processor ($85.00) Ryzen 5 1600 AF varient is available on Amazon for $85.

  9. Gigabyte gaming oc model is better and quiter than the asrock model for just $20 more.
  10. I personally owned a RM psu, though it has good reviews, it has pretty bad build quality. The fan on that unit is terrible. Also, don't always go blindly with the tier lists. For eg. 1 year ago the evga g3 used to be in tier A, slowly down the line it made its way to tier D. Similar story is with the focus plus units. Mwe used to be in tier A as well. Now its in tier B+.
  11. If its fine for a 2080ti, then it should be fine with a 2060 super.
  12. Clone to HDD to the SSD. You can use Acronis data migration software. https://www.acronis.com/en-in/personal/true-image-features/data-migration/
  13. I replaced the heatsink that came with the mobo, and kept the ssd heatsink untouched.
  14. I would redirect you to this post in the forum. Hopefully it helps.
  15. Any references for that claim? I guess a phison e12 a80 should be better than the 660p.
