    Best PSU for the situation in question.

    Had two that would not fasten and hold to the PSU -could slide right out if just pulled slightly -if that is no longer the case with modular I am indeed open to them. Ok. Thought so. Just clarify for me that the bequiet will lock into the PSU and stay latched and not just slide right out -had two modular that were this way long ago but they don't even show up anymore on websites and I am open to modular again. Speaking of which for the life of me according to the bequiet website what is the difference between the Straight Power 11 and the Dark Power 11? Under the specs they look almost identical. Is it the Full Bridge vs the no bridge that is the only main difference? Also what is this: Average life time (h / 25°C) 100.000 ?

    Is there one that is not modular?

    Best PSU for the situation in question.

    It will be a gaming/business/audio & video editing workstation not a server -replacing current GBAV workstation. On 24/7 due to business and the fact that I do edit and game at odd hours. Are we thinking of the same Delta company? That company here in the United States does still deal with construction doesn't it?

    Multi-rail? I think my current PSU is also a multi-rail PSU... If so I can see the point of a multi-rail -for it has been running just like the question asked... I have looked at those PSU's and all seem to be modular. Are there any that are not modular that would fit this category? I have a tendency to get wires mixed upped and or pulled out. The only one I can seem to find is the: RAIDMAX RX-1000AE Is that a good one one or not so much? I feel like the latter more than most. BTW I am in the United States -will fix that shortly.
  5. What is the best PSU that can endure at at least 60% (550W - 750W) constant HEAVY load? 24/7? For over 5 years? That is between 150-250 USD? In this situation are single or multi V -rails better?

    AMD A8 9600 & ROG STRIX X470-F Gaming MB Boot Kit?

    Note the default fans on the GPU will be removed for 120 Noctua's. Again that is not the design air box that I am building out of many fan cards. When mine is done it will not be nearly as constrictive. For a comparison in size look at the ASUS Prime X570-P board and basically make a box from the GPU slot to the bottom of the last PCI slot at the bottom of the board. I am building in a Thor V2 case from Rosewill so plenty of space beyond the board to bring more air into the card fan box. If the small slots are also PCI Express 4.0 then whoops! {bit confusing to have the two different slot sizes referred to as the same thing. PCI E to me is GPU slot and the smaller slots have been PCI 1.0}. Wait I would get 24 GB to run dual channel? How does that compute? I would have to theorize that according to the layout above that would most likely mean the 8 and 16 correlate into dual channel? Didn't think that could occur with the other two there.

    AMD A8 9600 & ROG STRIX X470-F Gaming MB Boot Kit?

    Actually it will obstruct the flow of air since putting an air fan box along side the graphics card: Also one on top and between them to pull air up and out and one 120 mm at the back to push air toward the back panel and out of the computer. This not the model that I am getting though -that model hooks into the PCI 1.0 slot. That is why need a PCI 1.0 above the motherboard for the remote. So basically order of the memory matters little anymore than it used to on other hardware? Could that hypothetically mean that if I got a 4 GB stick and a 8 GB stick and a 16 GB stick and a 32 GB stick it wouldn't matter the order it would still come to 60GB or in a case like that should be prioritized to the higher to lower?

    AMD A8 9600 & ROG STRIX X470-F Gaming MB Boot Kit?

    Yes. Except the TUF has the WIFI and the Elite is missing a PCI 1.0 slot in the place where it is needed -above the first PCI-Express slot. Only the ASUS Prime X570-P has it there -the slot for the PC Remote Control: Except mine plugs into the motherboard in the PCI 1.0 slot. The 3700X has been priced hacked so holding off on getting it for now. Going to get these other parts first. Eliminating the 3600(X) since I am a multi-tasker it is better to get the greater core and threads. I mean for someone who is going to run Star Control Origins, Metro Exodus, Far Cry New Dawn, Adobe Premier, Adobe Audition, and Audacity simultaneously and multiple encodings in all the adobe programs it seems almost a no brainer for a more powerful cpu. Ok so one of the Ram sticks been looking at is single rank which would consist of 8 chips on the stick and the other is dual which means 16 chips on the stick... So is there any harm in running dual rank and single rank sticks if two of each? As to prioritizing Ram by capacity does that mean the higher capacity in slots 1 and 3 and lower in 2 and 4 slot on the motherboard or did I miss something? Since I currently have 24 GB and max it out everyday would it be better for just a 16 GB times two then and leave at 32GB? I am slightly afraid of maxing it out like I do now -or maybe should keep original Idea of doubling current memory to 48 GB... which I only can see as accomplishing with two 16GBs and two 8GB's or with three 16 GB sticks -though I doubt any motherboard would take kindly to three sticks of memory. Maybe should just go all out to 64GB?

    Been doing a bunch of research even finally finding buildzoid's (-I think that is right) X570 motherboard reviews. Who said that of cheaper motherboards of the X570 motherboard line that the ASUS Prime X570-P was probably the best in far as VRM construction. Doubt that means it will cool the best but looks like metal over the usual plastic I have seen elsewhere so that is plus I guess. So settling on that board and the Ryzen 7 3700X for the build -if price subsides otherwise sticking with the Ryzen 5 3600X. This way can avoid the the AMD A8 in the first place and having no trouble BIOS issues. WIFI conflicts with this: SilverStone Tek 2.4G Wireless Power Remote with Power/Reset Function and Audio Feedback ES02-PCIE Computer turns on/off/on/off when WIFI is enabled or disabled. The reason I went back to my ASUS M5A97 R2.0 board. Going back to my earlier statement on ram... I should explain: In my current machine -the FX8370 I use 4 ram sticks: two 16GB and two 8GB sticks. It seems quite stable and performs well on this system. So was planning that for the Ryzen build as well... yet being with the whole new hardware design that Ryzen is with memory (or at least their interaction) would that actually decrease performance and should go either 4 16 GB Sticks or 4 8GB sticks or is two by two alright? One other question the Ram sticks that I linked before match in everything except size and one says its Dual Rank and the other says Single Rank -is that the chips on the ram stick are on one side and the other has them on both or is it their data rate -don't see the info on the site page pretaining to it or is it something else? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07MR1HWXT/ https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07MNJP6RW

    AMD A8 9600 & ROG STRIX X470-F Gaming MB Boot Kit?

    Except the X570 boards would not need the AMD A8 9600 to use as boot kit and could go straight to the 3600X...or is that wrong? Not to mention if the majority of the MSI boards are identical or close to similar as far as the actual motherboard hardware then that X570 board being cheaper than the X470 boards is a positive -even the Carbon? To be clear none of these have Wifi? Definitely trying to avoid Wifi. Also with them being the same... that means they all follow the daisy chain with the RAM? I intend to run 2x16 and 2x8 ram sticks in dual channel mode. So maybe I need to avoid this D.C... -Or should I actually be looking for boards that have the D.C.? https://www.amazon.com/Ballistix-16GBx2-PC4-25600-288-Pin-Memory/dp/B07M5RKH5Z/ref=sr_1_20?keywords=DDR4+32GB+(2+x+16GB)&qid=1564255832&s=gateway&sr=8-20 https://www.amazon.com/Ballistix-PC4-24000-288-Pin-Gaming-Memory/dp/B07MNJTHF1/ref=sr_1_fkmr2_1?keywords=Crucial%2BBallistix%2BSport%2BLT%2B3200%2BMHz%2BDDR4%2BDRAM%2BDesktop%2BGaming%2BMemory%2BKit%2B32GB%2B(16GBx2)&qid=1564255940&s=gateway&sr=8-1-fkmr2&th=1

    Or is it actually better to get the MSI X570-A PRO (160 USD) instead of the ROG STRIX X470-F (220) USD Gaming and avoid this scenario in the first place?

    So the Vengeance is not good at same price point? Do those heat spreaders really dissipate the heat that is produced efficiently? As to what I said about the Kingston: https://www.newegg.com/p/0RN-001J-00D09?Description=HX436C17PB3K2%2f32&cm_re=HX436C17PB3K2%2f32-_-0RN-001J-00D09-_-Product Yeah no way can afford that. My bad too about the Kingston -their issues were related to RGB Ram... Is the 3600 absolutely necessary? 3200 is easier to find.

    AMD A8 9600 & ROG STRIX X470-F Gaming MB Boot Kit?

    Everything seems to always have pros and cons. I remember the days of the non-mouse BIOS. I am an Enter and arrow key quick hitter that is why prefer mouse... That 3600-3866 is that for default or overclock? Was planning on: https://www.newegg.com/g-skill-32gb-288-pin-ddr4-sdram/p/N82E16820232752 Would there be better? Usually use Kingston but heard bad things about them with Ryzen has that been remedied?

    AMD A8 9600 & ROG STRIX X470-F Gaming MB Boot Kit?

    I do have a question: Does X470 BIOS's support mouse control? All BIOS video I have watched do not show it -though It is not that big a deal. Though I digress... After looking at the BIOS of each of the three brands I am almost to the point of switching to the MSI board -since the new BIOS update for the ASUS boards is causing problems with memory or cpu or both and the GIGA has that WI-FI -something that I do not need.

    Ok. Do you mean these two versus the Strix? https://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare?CompareItemList=13-119-099%2C13-144-178%2C13-145-058 If so I will look at the BIOS's... Good to know definitely going for that cooler then.
