  1. Yeah, after I set the top as an exhaust, my system cool way better. Anyway, as of writing, I got a deal of ThermalTake Pure Plus 12 set, comes with 3 fans and 1 controller. I fixed 2 at the front (have to remove 1 of the stock fan) and 1 at the top (the most front), all configure as intakes, while retaining one of the stock fan and 2 Sickle Flow position at CPU area as exhaust. Now my system temperature is just slightly above room temperature. Time for stress test and see how far it can go. Wish me luck.
  2. Well, It's a bit strange, but my graphic card vent it's exhaust upwards where the CPU is, and this makes the CPU couldn't cool down as all the warm air trap in that area. I try using the top as intake, but that doesn't help much as the hot air from the GPU will counter the airflow, and the hot air will spread in the case, making all the temps getting a warm 60 degrees C readings. I will need a blower at my rear exhaust if that's the case. Oh, I should mention that my GPU is Gigabyte RX Vega 64 with dual fan. To my surprise, the fan operates that it sucks the air into the heatsink and vent it out at the centre.

  3. I see. Anyway, I have tested out with 2 units, and the heat can be extracted from the casing. Not really ideal, but I guess it gets the job done for now. I have to place them at the top of the case as exhaust. I haven't stress test the system, but when I game, the system is cooler than before. Also, I have to adjust fan speed for my CPU and GPU. My CPU fan runs at full speed, while my GPU runs at a certain speed depending on the temperature (higher than the original config). It's a bit noisy, but I don't mind since I'm wearing a headphone all the time. Well, I'll be looking at much better cooling solution, but guess it'll have to wait for next month until my pays arrive. Just a small thought: If I can get a fan something like my VGA card, that'll be nice, as it can run over 3000rpm. I wonder if there's this thing called blower for PC case fan. Then again, I guess the motherboard couldn't support it as the max current is 2A only.
  4. I think you can get Asus pro ws ace. It's design for workstation workload in mind, so it is quite good. It only has SATA, but it does feature U2 port (although I'm not sure how to utilised it) The Strix-F are design more towards for gaming, so there's a lot of blings included. The only difference between Strix E and Strix F is that Strix E has an additional 2.5Gbps ethernet port. Also, Strix E has more USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10Gbps) ports. You can check the comparison in this link: https://www.asus.com/Product-Compare/?products=tmz1guzoa1gytvbl,SHyFHDycuUrka0tY,xlQ4iKfiVURLAgq3&b=0 Other than that, I think you might be interested in Gigabyte X570 Aorus Pro WiFi. It keeps the RGB to a minimum, Has a good visual appeal (at least for me) with black board and light grey wordings. It doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles, but it's not a bad board. It has 6 SATA ports. You can check this link: https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/X570-AORUS-PRO-WIFI-rev-10#kf
  5. I spotted Cooler Master Sickle Flow (I think) 120mm single colour LED selling for RM29 per piece. Good deal?
  6. Hmm... Well, most motherboard offers share PCIe lanes with NVMe these days (from the chipsets). Oh, do you mean you want to convert the NVMe slot that links to the CPU into PCIe slot? Hmm... It's hard to find one. I don't think any manufacturer offering one at all as far as I can remember.
  7. Currently, no budget was set, as I'm flat out. But if I have, maybe around USD 11 (RM50).
  8. I tried Blender, and it's a bit difficult for me. But I guess I can try. Any good tutorials?
  9. Hi, I'm looking for software that I can do 3D modelling. I don't mind paying a little as long as it can do 3D modelling. Okay, here's the criteria: - Easy to learn, easy to do modelling - Something like Google SketchUp - Able to model people, animals and biological creatures as well My system specs: - AMD Ryzen 3600 - Gigabyte AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB Thanks in advance.
  10. Hmm, Well, if you like, defraggler from piriform is a nice software for defragmenting HDD. As for anti-virus, try to get a more reputable one, such as McAfee or Norton. Also, if you go to the websites frequently, get the internet security suite or something similar like that. If you want an anti-virus that doesn't need intervention, I think you can give Sophos a try.
  11. Okay. I'll think about it. I see. Thanks for the info. Yeah, I try to find those fans, I don't mind the noise, but they are quite rare in my area. Most 120mm casing fans sold over here only spins at 1000-1200 rpm.
  12. Definitely 2600, as it is more recent, faster, more efficient, and still can get a good support. Either way, make sure your motherboard supports whatever CPU you are about to install. It looks like this motherboard supports both options.
  13. Well, I guess the only way (probably) is to change the CPU. Other than that, inspect your motherboard for dust, dirt or foreign objects that might causes some components to short circuit, or change your motherboard altogether.
  14. This is normal as some address space are reserved for other uses such as I/O and IRQ. Not to worry, though.
