    I'm not saying you need a 750W.  I linked you to a 750W review because there is no review of the 650W, but if you read the review, you can get the gist as to why the TX-M is a very good PSU.

    The justification to get an Intel i9 10920x was two-fold: 1. Keeping a decently high single-core performance, and 2. PCI-E expandability while staying under $600 for a CPU. With legs to stretch after moving from 16 to 48 PCI-E lanes, I decided to venture into high-speed storage. The main benefit is being able to assign tasks to groups of CPU cores/threads on the same data set and not lose random I/O performance. My PCI-E expansion consists of the following cards:
    2x EVGA 2080's with liquid cooling (Absolutely necessary for cramming PCI-E cards)
    2x Asus Hyper M.2 x16 PCIe 3.0 x4 Expansion Card V2s
    5x SKHynix Gold P31 500Gb M.2 drives
    1x Asus 10Gbe Network card
     
    When all 4 16x slots are filled, each PCI-E slot only run at 8x. For GPU's, this is fine, but for PCI-E SSDs, this meant that I could only place 2 cards per slot, meaning that I had to get 2 of the Asus Hyper cards. Both GPUs are fine to run at 8x PCI-E gen3 for all of my tasks, which include machine learning, graphic design, and some light gaming. Behind the cards, on the motherboard, I have the 5th PCI-E drive acting as a boot drive. One thing that may make some people upset is that I did not use hardware RAID 0 on the 4 cards, but in Crystal Disk Mark, I get a theoretical 14.2GB/s, real-world 12.5GB/s, so I don't feel like I'm losing performance using a Windows storage pool instead. Going with software also helps not have to backup the array in the case of a BIOS update or losing the drive data if my BIOS gets corrupted. It's easy to import the foreign drive to a new computer and start using it. And just to be clear, the 2TB "RAID 0" storage pool is not a boot drive. It is mainly used for storing large games, (Assassin's Creed, GTA V), and hosting datasets for processing.

    The 10Gbe card actually runs off of chipset lanes, but keep in mind that the PCH has a throughput of 3.6GB/s, while a 10Gb card only operates up to 1.25GB/s, so there's no fear of bottlenecking there. Do I feel like I'm missing out on PCI-E Gen 4 performance? No. No applications I've seen or used are written to read and write data that fast. This was mostly an experiment and proof of concept, but I'm happy with the results. The bits do go brrrr.

    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. Agree
    DailyProcrastinator reacted to jonnyGURU in TX650M vs. Seasonic Core GM   
    The TX650M is a much better PSU than the Core.   The Core is an entry level product.
     
    Seasonic, and Corsair for that matter, makes a wide range of products.  You can't make blanket statements like "this brand is better than that brand".

    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?

    DailyProcrastinator reacted to RAS_3885 in Case Fan Wire Too Short or Error By Me?   
    Looks like a pretty standard fan cable length. Because motherboards have a wide variety of fan header locations the cable isn't always long enough.
     
    You need to either use an extension cable to reach an open header, or use a splitter to attach two fans to a closer header.

    Not the fanciest looking setup here by far, but That's pretty much the whole point. Finally got Hold of a keyboard that matches my Dimension 2400 Sleeper, and moved the whole setup to a room with actual walls instead of the unfinished basement. Gave me a chance to do a pretty good job cable managing everything for once, too(Just don't look behind the desk.)

    So here's my two. The bottom one is a G Pro with Romer-G tactiles that ended up getting some pretty good blue LED failure after about 6 months. Currently use it for my XP rig whenever I use it with the backlight set to red and saved to memory.
     
    The top one is my current daily driver which is a G Pro X with tactiles (the RMA replacement for the first board), and now it's slowly starting to develop blue LED failure as well (currently just a slight red tinge on the S key, just like how it started on the first one). Kinda hoping by running this hot pink (which uses the blue as fully as possible) I can coax some more LEDs to fail to get yet another replacement.

    Yes I know it's a dusty mess and the cable management is non existent. I have a new case on the way for this and plan on cleaning/repasting everything when that arrives. And I plan on using this NZXT case for a retro build I've been planning for a while with a GTX 760. I will post that here as well when it's ready.
