  1. Yep ryzen 5000 smashes intel across the board however with current supply issues pricing and availability is a bit of a mess.
  2. The 10400f is also a non overclockable cpu and has some of the lowest clocks of the 10th gen i5's so it really wont have better if at all gaming performance when compared to the 3600. As others have said go ryzen, IMO intel is only worth it if your main priority is gaming, you go for a k series processor and you overclock to 5ghz+.
  3. An extension like the one you linked is probably your best bet unless you can find another way to route the cable.
  4. Technically ram speed will speed up things slightly but in reality it won't be noticeable. As for speed vs timings it really depends on the situation ryzen does like faster memory but if that comes at the cost of loose timings issues could arise. Basically faster speeds and tighter timings are better but if one comes at the expense of another it might not be. Personally when I went from 2400mhz to 3000mhz (similar timings) I didn't see much of a difference except in game where I had less fps drops in cpu bound scenarios (zen+ cpu).
  5. There is nothing wrong with your cpu. The 65W TDP (thermal design power) does not indicate how much power the cpu will actually use, rather its a rating used to determine cooling requirements. The actual cpu power usage is dependent on many factors such as silicon quality, workload, boost state etc. Also note that AMD and Intel rate TDP differently so they really cant be compared.
  6. Most case have vented pcie slot covers anyway so I doubt it will make much of a difference.
  7. The cooler master mm710/711 and logitech G-Pro would also be good choices in that price range.
  8. I would not recommend the pro x unless you are certain you only need basic apps and will be doing light tasks. Unfortunately you probably won't be able to easily get manufacturer direct support but you should be able to get support through the retailer you purchase the device from.
  9. I would say it is reasonable to get a device now considering the importance of reliability for a student, although only you can answer the question of whether it is worth it for you.. Considering that your main priority is pen support I would be looking at a surface, as for which one it depends on pricing in your country.
  10. Would probably be a good idea. Your best bet would be to discuss what you are trying to do with a reputable electrician and see what they recommend.
  11. If the voltage tolerances on the new 12V spec are anything like the old spec (+-5%) it is highly unlikely that a motherboard would to deal with the voltage range of a battery. I mean it may work but the voltages would be out of spec so there is no guarantee, as the components are designed for precise voltages.
  12. Honestly I would spend the extra to get a quality unit with good support and warranty considering that valuable electronics would be running off it, I would be more concerned why the lights dim when the AC turns on.
  13. I would say the thermal pad you used was probably too thick, so the heatsink wasn't making even contact on the cpu hence the inconsistent core temps (additional thermal paste on one side of the cpu is a good indicator of this) .
  14. Mobile chips can be pretty sensitive with thermal paste application as they have no IHS. As for the thermal pad on the VRM's I would say that is up to you, but seeing as you typically only hit VRM throttling with extended loads you probably won't see much of a real world difference unless you use your laptop for heavy extended tasks such as video rendering.
