  1. it should be if you dont overclock much. And make sure that the case has at least one intake and at least one outlet fan so that the chipset, ram, m.2 ssd, vram as well as your graphics card get enough air flow to cool down.
  2. Let me explain. Mini itx motherboards have only 2 memory slots and no pci expansion card support (only graphics card) and you've to keep that in mind while planning your usage as well as upgrade facilities. Again there's a limited room for overclocking due to limited air flow. And heating of chipset, vrm and m.2 ssd are a concern in very small itx cases like dan case sfx but shouldn't be an issue in a fairly large itx chassis like nzxt H210. Personally if i had to bulid a ryzen 9 system inside the nzxt H210, I'd have selected the noctua NH-U12A for cpu cooling. Because the case has option only to mount single fan 120mm radiator and i think that's not enough to cool down the 3950x with watercooling. Without overclocking, the NH-U12A should keep the cpu under 80°C at full load while with a single fan aio liquid cooler, it can go above 90°C. And I'd put 2 noctua NF fans for air flow in the chassis, one in the front as intake and one in the back as outlet. And I'd select a motherboard that comes with heatsink to sit over the m.2 ssd.
  3. he should spend 20$ more and buy the msi b450 tomahawk max. That's the most popular and one of the best midrange amd board. he can put a ryzen 7 in it if he wants in the future.
  4. I'd choose gigabyte b450M DS3H. The price is equivalent to 70 usd in my region (similar to those A320 mobo) and pretty much everyone buy it for low budget amd build. It's got 4 dRAM slots compared to 2 in those A320 mobo, leaving you more memory upgrade path. Moreover, with amd cpu /apu, you might be interested in slight overclocking to get a bit better performance which you cannot do with A320 boards.
  5. i heard that adobe software are optimized for intel whereas ryzen 7 handles 3d workload better due to high logical core count. As i want both type of software run as smooth as possible within budget, the dilemma of choosing the appropriate cpu occurred.
  6. current pc has 7th gen i7 and gtx 970 with 16 gigs of ram. Wanna double the ram, upgrade cpu and buy a compatible motherboard. pc will be used for content creation using adobe after effect and premier pro as well as plenty of 3D stuff using autodesk maya. need help for selecting the cpu that will run the above mentioned apps the best. left with only 2 options within budget. i7 9700k or r7 3700x?

    bottleneck

    For a 1080p 144Hz monitor, the 5700xt will give you the best performance. The rtx 2060 and 5600xt will perform similar and will give a bit lower performance than the 5700xt. Considering almost all monitors support freesync, buying a 5700xt is the best option for you. But if you are on a budget, choose rtx 2060 or 5600xt based on these considerations >>>> Consideration 1 (FPS-refresh rate Sync): Go for the rtx 2060 if the monitor supports G-sync or adaptive sync. And if it supports only freesync, buy the 5600xt. Stuttering and screen tearing will be solved. Consideration 2 (Driver and optimization): Going with a Nvidia card is always a good choice due to occasion driver issues with AMD cards. If you monitor has G-sync or adaptive sync, buy rtx 2060 without any second thought and get rid of both screen stuttering and driver issue. But using Nvidia card with a monitor without G-sync or adaptive sync support might introduce occasional screen tearing while showing no driver issue. Consideration 3 (Game based decision): Just watch YouTube videos on which card runs the games that you play the most better. Then buy that card..simple. The performance you'll get with rtx 2060/ 5600xt/ 5700xt with ryzen 3700x will be almost the same if you had a ryzen 3600 instead. The extra cpu power of 3700x won't come useful to you during gaming. To match the ryzen 3700x, you could've gone for a very powerful gpu but you cannot do that either because of the limitations of your existing monitor. I don't know whether or not you'll use your pc for game streaming or content creation or for using 3D CAD software. If you don't do any of them, buying the 3700x instead of 3600 has been a bad investment.

    bottleneck

    The thing is, with very high refresh rate and UHD resolution, even the 2080ti can bottleneck the 3700x which means the gpu will reach 100% utilization state when the cpu is still at for example 50%. So, the graphics card buying decision totally depends on your monitor properties. If the display resolution is 1080p and refresh rate is below 75Hz, then the 1660 super won't bottleneck any cpu. The extra cores will come useful if you decide to stream while gaming. But if your screen resolution above 1440p and/or refresh rate is 120Hz or more, then you should buy a gtx 2070 or better to avoid bottleneck. The bottleneck calculator considers that you have the best possible display (like 4k and 240Hz) and then calculates bottleneck to ensure near 100% utilization on both cpu and gpu simultaneously.
  9. Bought this system back in 2010. The motherboard and harddisk died so i had to to change them. But this thing runs on win7 perfectly still today and i use it rarely to play games from 5 years ago like fifa 15, nfs the run, COD MW3 etc....just to remember how those days were. I've got a 9th gen core i5 pc as my main rig but i decided to keep that old friend. specs: - core 2 duo E8400 - 2+2 GB DDR3 1333 MHz RAM from Team - Esonic G41 mobo (Bought after the Asus G41 mobo died) - Gigabyte Radeon HD 6670 graphics card - Valuetop 450 watt psu (overkill !) - 120 GB 2.5 inch SSD (bought after the HDD died) - A DVD rom that still works! There's also a fully working Samsung 18.5 inch monitor of 1366x768 resolution connected to it.
  10. I use an Asus vivobook s530 laptop that has a usb C (3.1) port. According to the vendor's guide it supports only general data transfer, no charging, no thunderbolt. My phone (oneplus 7 pro) doesn't have any 3.5mm audio port so I'm using a dongle. I'm planning to buy a usb C headphone to get rid of the dongle but i also want to use the headphone with my laptop, by utilizing the usb C port. But I'm not sure whether or not it will work. For now I've tried connecting the headphone (with the dongle attached) to the usb C port of my laptop but windows couldn't detect it. The headphone works fine when i directly (without the dongle) connect it to the 3.5mm port of my laptop. So, should i buy a usb C headphone? i want it to work on both devices (phone and laptop).

  12. thanks. Learnt something new. BTW, another option just popped up. it's the transcend 220S for $6 more. is that a better option or similar compared to my current choice?
  13. we chose the corsair force mp510 and the PNY CS3030. My friend is gonna buy one of them as the price is exactly the same in my region (about $60). Both comes with the same phison E12 controller and TLC nand but don't have any dedicated dram cache according to my online research. I don't know which one is better amongst these two.
