  1. All air coolers form reputable manufactures are going to be just as reliable as competitors, pretty well the only thing that might fail is maybe the fan one day. D15 vs the Ninja 5 / Neptwin with a 5600x will not give you any real performance gains, maybe a few degrees C of difference at most. From what I can tell the D14 is slightly taller than the D15. So I would avoid it.
  2. No problem, also for the 5600x I would go for one of the other two coolers I mentioned, they are not far off the D15S and they cost a lot less (depending on region).
  3. The D15 will not fit as it is 165mm tall, the D15S will at 160mm, also keep in mind you can move the fan up and down a tiny bit. The max height at which you can fit in the P400 is 160mm. Other large air coolers I can recommend that will fit are the Scythe Ninja 5 and DeepCool Neptwin. In the future you can use https://pcpartpicker.com/list/ it has a compatibility filter and if you select hardware you already own it will only show what is compatible.
  4. Without any info to back that up there is no value to that information. Unless someone can provide concrete evidence, than that is a different story, but in this case, it is not. Sounds like this person is just conveying their own personal bias and opinion, not actually providing sound advice or info. Corsair and Seasonic have both made Good PSU's and Bad PSU's, I personally would not rate one better than the other, it comes down to the specific units you are comparing. And in this instance the Corsair TXm is better.
  5. I have encountered short case fan wires in the past as well. Lazy oversight by the manufacturer. Either route the cable differently or get a fan extension or splitter.
  6. A Tier A PSU is better than Tier B. Thus making the decision pretty straight forward. The TXm it is a well made PSU with good warranty. Seems like an unfound bias, what have you heard that makes SeaSonic better?
  7. I did say "assuming USD", as in your location is in the US. You need to specify location next time...
  8. They are on Amazon for $65. https://pcpartpicker.com/mr/amazon/zFVD4D And yes, they are RGB.
  9. Assuming USD: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/zFVD4D/deepcool-rf120m-565-cfm-120-mm-fans-5-pack-rf120m I have used these fans before, great value for the price and they perform well.
  10. Have you monitored utilization while running these programs? You could be using up all 16GB of RAM.
  11. https://pcpartpicker.com/products/cpu-cooler/#W=0&Y=8200000&sort=price&c=33 Any of the DeepCool options would be super solid! The GAMMAXX is perfectly adequate for a 5600x. If you want to OC though I would look to consider the Neptwin.
  12. Seems within reason, if you clip, lube, and use the included stab foam stickers that would help for sure.
  13. For the price, and rating. These are great value, and decent enough units: https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/Rxprxr/seasonic-s12iii-650-w-80-bronze-certified-atx-power-supply-ssr-650gb3 https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/R2mxFT/corsair-power-supply-cp9020103na Although the outright best option for the money would be: https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/product/2HbwrH/corsair-rmx-2018-650w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-atx-power-supply-cp-9020178-na However if $110 is a stretch the other 2 options will suffice. That said it could be seen as an investment if you have
  14. What are your system specs? CPU, GPU, mobo? EDIT: thought you were OP, we should get specs as a lower wattage PSU could work fine, and allows for a potentially better quality unit to be bought.
