Any good?

Recommended Posts

Asus boards are only good on the high end, other ones suck.

 

I prefer larger capacity SATA SSDs than smaller capacity NVMe SSDs. Their response time is the same so as a boot drive they feel the same. It's only in heavy read write situations that they feel different, but few people actually do that frequently enough to justify the disadvantage in capacity.

 

Masterbox Lite has horrible airflow with its closed off front.

 

I urge people to have at least 4 case fans in their desktops, most cases dont have this many so its up to the user to buy more.

Get a B450 Tomahawk instead. You could get a 500GB SSD instead of 970 EVO like Jurrunio said, you wont notice a difference in real life every day PC use and you'll have more faster storage. I would also try to get a better PSU..Refer to this PSU Tier List. If that's the best you can afford, then it'll do. A would rather get a better 550w unit than that 650w, which will be fine for you system
