  1. What temps are you running into? Because it really shouldn't be that bad with the setup you have. Are the filters clean? Are the fins on the CPU cooler filled with dust? There can be a LOT of other reasons why you are running high temperatures.
  2. Sadly as stated above, if you want your SSD mounted on the back of the MB tray, then yes you need to remove the MB and mount them there. Your other options are on the PSU shroud or in the HDD/SSD drive cage.
  3. So I took into account that you wanted White as part of the colors.

I think you will be fine with the stock cooler for the 3600. If you want to be creative, you could tape off and paint the fan shroud white, or some white with pearl in it. If you are feeling like you want to dome some painting, maybe even tape off the heatsinks on the MB and paint some of those white as well. As for the storage choices, the NVME drive, is for reading and writing only. Basically, move the file/photos/video that you are going to be editing, do your work then move it for storage to the HDD. the 512GB SATA drive is for your OS and programs, and the 4TB is your big storage drive. (Not sure if you can use this in a NAS setup down the road or not. You may have to go with an IronWolf or RED drive) The case is white with RGB fans. I put some tasteful other colors as well. (I wish the Lian Li Lancool II Mesh ARGB in white was available, I think that would go with this build, personally. But the P400A in white would be my 2nd choice) I personally don't know which monitor to buy (my education on that area is a bit weak), so I will let you research that along with the other advice given by people here. I have an old 29" Ultrawide 1080p monitor from LG. I like the extra screen width so not everything is on top of each other. As for keyboard and mouse, it really is up to what you like. I am still using a Logitech G110 keyboard! It is like 10 years old I think. Other advice about the list is this: If you are willing to wait until the holiday shopping season, see what the 5000 series AMD CPUs are going to do to the market. And same thing on the video cards. That market is in such a flux right now with new stuff coming out, demand is outweighing the supply, so prices are astronomical. And lastly (sorry for this length) since you are doing the photograph thing, I think 32GB of memory is where you want to be at, and 3200 or 3600Mhz for a Ryzen chip.
  4. I would look for the Budget 4K editing computer, and base your system off of that. I think the system was within your budget. But I agree with @jaslion. I don't understand your monitor choice. I would think you would want 4K if possible. Not a crazy big one, but at least have the resolution for editing.
  5. If you search for the Users Manual for the case, it has a picture of the controller on it. The Manual is written for the RGB and non-RGB versions of the case. I have the non-RGB version. So my fan controller is just for 6 fans. And I can't get to the PDF file for the manual from my work to share here. Apologies. Any other questions about the case?
  6. If you look at this thread. The CPU torture test that GN did on the case lists the temperatures you could see. May I ask, why so many Noctua fans? I realize they are very quiet, and I am sure they move much more air (CFM rating). And you can do what you want with it. Personally, I wouldn't mount a fan in the bottom back, all it is doing is blowing air onto your GPU. (unless your GPU AIO doesn't water cool the GPU's memory??) Just remember, adding more fans doesn't always improve temperature. Also, this case does have the preinstalled fans hooked up to a fan hub (which can have 6 in total hooked up to it.) I hope it goes well for you.
  7. And there lies my problem. Since I weigh 340 LBS, I can't buy just any chair. I bought one gaming chair because it was on sale at Newegg and it could hold my weight, but I forgot cardinal rule of chairs, MEASURE YOURSELF before purchasing a chair!!! Since that debacle, I bought an Akracing MAX chair. Yeah, it's a Polyurethane fabric and in a gaming style, but it fits me well. (surprising my daughter loves it because she can sit with her legs crossed in it.) LOL But we bought an Autonomous Ergochair 2 for our latest one. I have to admit, when I put it together, it had some very nice designs to it. and thank goodness it wasn't made from cheap materials.
  8. I think it looks great! Nice and bright. And some good solid performance for the long haul.
  9. I just bought an ErgoChair 2 for my wife. It will fit my heavy self. But she finds it very nice.
  10. Got a bicycle??? If you have a need, I am sure you can find a means. Then call or physically dig through the trash. There is pride in finding things other people don't want. Heck, what about Craigslist? See what people want taken away. Then see what it takes to get that picked up. If you can't fit it in multiple trips in a wagon or on a bike, then ask for someone to drive you to pick it up. There is ALWAYS a way. You just need/want it bad enough.
  11. If that is the case, hit up a lanfill or e-recycler. See if they will let you have something from 2012.
  12. I feel you. I literally just upgraded (2 months ago) from my desktop that I built in 2008. I had 2 Radeon R7777's running in Crossfire and it wasn't enough anymore.
  13. @Mr.Fox81 der Youtuber Here is a link to an article about the different types of RAM. https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/difference-between-ddr-and-sdram/ That should help your understanding.
  14. I am really surprised you can't find something newer at a thrift shop or the landfill. This makes me think, I shouldn't throw out my PC from 2008 then.
  15. Notice how this RAM has 2 notches in it? Now look at the RAM slots on your 2002 MB. Does it have 2 notches or 1? (It should have 1 from 2002, which means it is DDR) Therefore; there is no adapter, that I know of. Are you having issues trying to find RAM for your 2002 MB??
  16. @Xolin Also, besides the sanding. Make sure to get a self-etching primer. It will get a better grip on the plastic.
  17. Well it is currently gloss. So up to you if you switch it to Matte. Heck, why not go for a whole new color????
  18. So according to the Asus website your laptop can come with an M.2 drive. - 128GB SSD (M.2 2280) - 256GB SSD (M.2 2280) So if you find a M.2 2280 drive you should be fine. I would hope you could put in a bigger size then what is listed. But laptops are not my main bread an butter. Hopefully you get some better information, than what I provide. But from what I understand, yes most M.2 ( at least the ones that will take NVME, can also take SATA III drives as well) drives will just run at the speed of the drive. And the spec sheet will list what types of M.2 drives your motherboard can handle. ( I believe)
  19. You could always make it a different color. I just made my own desk, and I couldn't really fit an Alex desk in my spot. (And it was more expensive.) I did a blue wood stain.
  20. Thanks!! I'll look up the Poxo!! I was looking at gaming phones, but I just don't think I could do that. If I want to game, I have a PC for that.
  21. With their rules, I can just leave my phone in my car. If I want to bring it into the Controlled Industrial Area, I'll remove the camera. Their position, if I am important enough to have a phone, then by GOSH the government will provide me with one.
  22. YEP I KNEW I FORGOT something. NO, absolutely NO iPhone.
  23. I don't really like the risk of pulling them out myself! LOL I don't have an iFIXit kit!! I was only charged $40 for the removal and epoxy job last time. (3 years ago now?)
  24. So I am currently rocking a LG K20 Plus. I am running out of room in the 32GB of internal storage they give, thanks to more and more apps not allowing me to move them to my MicroSD card. I have always had a phone with external storage ability, but I see that going by the wayside these days. I would like to move up to a phone that has 64GB or 128GB of internal storage (especially if I can't mount an SD card.) I mainly use my phone for watching videos and ordering food and drinks. If I could, I would use my son's LG Stylo 5 that we got for school (I like the screen resolution), but quickly replaced because it didn't have enough internal space. My work doesn't allow me to have a camera phone, so the camera(s) will be physically removed and expoxyed over the holes. So I REALLY don't care if the phone has a good camera or not! And I don't know how much more they will charge me for removing 4 cameras, let alone 2. I have T-mobile as my carrier in the US. Hopefully I will be able to get an Otterbox case for it. I work on Navy ships so I need a case that can take a hit. I would like to keep my cost under $800USD, but I would prefer under $500USD if possible. So far the only thing I could find was a Google Pixel 4A. And I really am not considering an iPhone. Any suggestions and recommendations would be GREATLY appreciated.
