  1. I just bought five Arctic p12 pwm fans that can daisy chain together. How many are safe to run together at the same time off a single fan header? Is there a difference between a daisy chain and a splitter? I have a Asus x570 tuf gaming motherboard
  2. Thanks this is great. I told them I'd build them a $500 computer so going under budget is perfect.
  3. Budget (including currency): 500 usd Country: Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Netflix, chrome, YouTube Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 5 3400G 3.7 GHz Quad-Core Processor $149.00 @ Amazon Motherboard Gigabyte B450M DS3H Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard $72.99 @ Best Buy Memory GeIL EVO POTENZA 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3000 Memory $63.99 @ Newegg Storage Pioneer 512 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive $69.98 @ Amazon Case Cooler Master MasterBox Q300L MicroATX Mini Tower Case $81.98 @ Amazon Power Supply Corsair VS 450 W 80+ Certified ATX Power Supply Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total $437.94 Generated by PCPartPicker 2020-05-23 14:00 EDT-0400 Tell me your thoughts, my parents need a fast PC to replace their 8 year old HP.Also going to pair it with a 20$ wifi card Would it be more cost effective to buy something off the shelf. I'll add an SSD if they fill up the nvme drive but I don't really see that happening, they don't download much media. Also would a 3100x and a $50 display card(think a 1030) ultimately be a better performer?
  4. Hey so Im planning on building a $1k system with a 2060 KO Ultra and I own a q70r. Do you think it would be worth it to switch to a rx5600 xt just for Freesync even though the RTX has more feature that I want. I've never used a VRR TV or monitor so I don't know. Maybe Nvidia will add Freesync support over HDMI?
  5. I'm pretty sure they drop June 16th. "That out of the way, B550 is the actually new one that’s interesting. The AMD B550 chipset release date is June 16, with most manufacturer motherboards shipping by July. Outside of chipset choice, the biggest consideration would be VRM quality, PCIe generation usage, and BIOS quality, but that’s a different topic."
  6. Okay makes sense. This is my first build starting from scratch so I want to make sure I'm not making dumb mistakes. How quickly do you think the new boards will sell out on launch day? I've haven't paid attention to product launches in the past.
  7. Oh thanks for the tip on the case, I just assumed I could get the TUF in mATX. And I already bought a WD black since it was on sale for $70 last week and I knew they would go fast at that price. Tbh I don't even know what makes the black more expensive haha
  8. Budget (including currency): $1000 Country: USA Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Rtx Minecraft, Apex, RDR2 Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 5 3600X 3.8 GHz 6-Core Processor $204.99 @ B&H Memory G.Skill Ripjaws V 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3600 Memory $84.99 @ Amazon Storage Western Digital Blue 500 GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive $69.99 @ Newegg Storage Seagate Barracuda Compute 2 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive $59.99 @ Other World Computing Video Card EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 6 GB KO ULTRA GAMING Video Card $315.00 Case Cooler Master MasterBox Q300L MicroATX Mini Tower Case $57.98 @ Newegg Power Supply Corsair CV 550 W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply $65.99 @ Newegg Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts Total $858.93 Generated by PCPartPicker 2020-05-11 15:38 EDT-0400 This seems pretty decent, especially with an Amazon prime membership. Will pick up a b550 when they drop, probably an Asus TUF wifi since the coolermaster has a TUF scheme as well (AeStHeTiCs). That'll put me right at 1k usd with room to expand if I want. Recommendations are welcome.
  9. Thanks that's definitely what I'll go with then
  10. Yes but the non X has been sold out and I want to take advantage of my microcenters memorial day sale.
  11. Ok I wasn't sure about the motherboard, but it's the one bundled Here which seems like an ok deal if I can find it in stock. There's also this one Here but I don't really understand what I'm missing out on for $100. I definitely want the x570 for upgradeability in a few years. Thanks for the video that should help a lot.
  12. Budget (including currency): ~1100 usd Country: USA Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: APEX, RTX Minecraft, some light streaming and editing Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): Here's what I've decided on for now. I've got a microcenter by my place so I think I'll go buy the ryzen 5 and Mobo bundle and pick out a case while I'm there. I've got the meat and potatoes chosen, I just need your best opinions on the rest of the build.
