  1. The B450 Aorus M worked quite well for a 2400G system I built, no overclocking on it though. I just thought 'let's save this 10 USD here, for the same tier board'
  2. Yea that will work good. It's just that you can get an RM850i for 90 GBP less https://www.scan.co.uk/products/850w-corsair-rm850i-series-fully-modular-psu-80plus-gold-certified-135mm-fan-atx But just depends on how much you value the RGB and such.
  3. Ah, I see.. Just chose a relatively cheap board in the tier that would work alright with a Ryzen 5 CPU. I mostly choose the semi-modularity because I suspected the case I chose (which I kinda chose blindly, just some cheap box..) would probably have junk cable management options. Anything to help with that! Although I still find it weird Corsair refreshed the CX-series again, but not CXM. Since I don't know where OP is from it was indeed just something generic to finish up the list: What I meant with that was that it really depends on what OP can generally get where they live. Also it was just to specifically show to get a 2x DIMM set.
  4. I have the 2070 Super XC Gaming, to be clear. Not overclocked with stock fan settings. At the moment I am not at my PC, so can only remote into it and check how it is doing now.. It's currently running F@H, which pushes the CUDA cores 100% (actually closer to 95%), which in my experience is not as intensive as gaming.. So will run a benchmark for that later today. Temperatures (according to HWMonitor and EVGA PrecisionX) are at 69 degrees C (nice..), with ambient temps of around (I would guess) 18-20 degrees C. It's not that loud to me either, but I have noticed tasks like gaming get it to be louder than folding.. The coilwhine is something I don't really notice too much, but I am not happy with it either.. Don't really want to bother with RMA'ing it either It really depends on the price point you could get any GPU I guess. For me the XC Gaming was in a similar price point as blower-style cards. Things like an ASUS Rog, Gigabyte Aorus 3 fan or MSI Gaming X were only available at higher prices.. With my limited perspective, it looks like a good purchase. Of course that is me justifying my spending partially, but also because I don't have other cards to compare it too.
  5. Be sure to get a dual channel kit of memory, not a single DIMM. Couldn't read that from your parts list what you are getting. The VS550 is decent for a build like this, but doesn't leave much room to upgrade the GPU in the future either. That SSD is definitely not worth it in this sort of budget. Something like this would be my suggestion: PCPartPicker Part List CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2600 3.4 GHz 6-Core Processor ($119.99 @ Walmart) Motherboard: Gigabyte B450M DS3H Micro ATX AM4 Motherboard ($72.98 @ Amazon) Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 8 GB (2 x 4 GB) DDR4-3000 Memory ($44.99 @ Amazon) Storage: Intel 660p Series 512 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive ($62.99 @ B&H) Video Card: Sapphire Radeon RX 580 8 GB PULSE Video Card ($179.99 @ Newegg) Case: Thermaltake Versa N21 ATX Mid Tower Case ($44.99 @ Newegg) Power Supply: Corsair CXM 550 W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply ($69.98 @ Amazon) Total: $595.91 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-12-11 05:38 EST-0500 Depends on local pricing too of course..

    What switches you should get is up to you, as everyone has a different preference. I would suggest you try out the different switches in person, in a store for example. As for the HyperX vs. Coolermaster, I would personally take the Coolermaster. I have used the CK550 inthe past (which is like the CK530, but with a numpad) and was quite happy with it. Gateron vs. Cherry MX is a similar deal to me personally. People like to make fun of RGB, but I find it a convenient feature, since I can color each key to whatever I want.
  7. Asus ROG Thor 850W? https://www.asus.com/Graphics-Cards-Accessories/ROG-THOR-850P/ Sure, good PSU. (There is also a bad PSU called Asus ROG Strix, which is why I asked this). You could get a Corsair RM850i for a similar experience too.
  8. As a general rule of thumb, you don't want an entry level PSU for the highest end components on the market.. But it looks like Thermaltake has quite a few models, in different tiers too.. TT is just an abbreviation of Thermaltake, would you happen to have a more precise model number?
  9. May I ask what the issue would be with those EVGA cards? Any issues with them, other than coil whine?
  10. The RTX 2080 is just a slight bit faster than the 2070 Super. (Framerates from 4K benchmarks) Source for fps numbers: https://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/msi-geforce-gtx-1660-ti-gaming-x-review,1.html When I got my videocard, there was a very large price difference, which made me go for the RTX 2070 Super. I got the XC Gaming model, which is pretty good; does have some coil whine though.
  11. Do you have a PSU already? Do you have a specific model number, please? There are very good and very bad PSU's, regardless of wattage and 80+ certification.. A system like this will probably use around 500W at full (overclocked) load. https://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/amd_ryzen_9_3950x_review,7.html https://www.guru3d.com/articles_pages/msi_geforce_rtx_2080_ti_lightning_z_review,8.html I would only really recommend a very good 550W, but would rather suggest a higher wattage model. Something like the RM650X/750X, Be Quiet Straight Power 11 650W, etc. (See the thread posted above for more PSU options)
  12. Looks like a pretty good option: https://www.pcworld.com/article/3405888/addlink-s70-nvme-ssd-review.html Of course depends on the pricing though!
  13. Is it possible the GPU is just boosting to higher speeds with the new paste?
  14. Looking at PCPartPicker, it sadly doesn't seem like there is someone who build a system with that case+cooler+mobo. Only some configurations that are close to yours.. Probably the closest to yours would be this: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/P6GG3C With an MSI X570 board which has a rather large VRM solution to your board choice. This user did not mount the cooler to the top, but sadly did not talk about why... Similar story to this user: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/X9kdnQ Different, but similar board.. Cooler on the front, no reasoning given. This user also mounted it to the front: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/Fyjypg Someone asked why, response: Although that was with a 280mm.. So this might not pose a problem with 240mm? Somewhat normal VRM size, cooler on the top: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/8hhypg (normal RAM size) Reason I mentioned RAM size, is because of this build: https://pcpartpicker.com/b/9LGG3C This user mentioned the cooler did not fit in the top because RAM clearance. Builds I checked: Maybe Nick from Corsair can shed some light, but I am not gonna be able to give a sure yes or no answer to you sadly
