  1. That obviously depends on the software you're using, though I reckon cropping the larger image to the exact size of the smaller one should do the trick.
  2. Did you shoot one photo through the viewfinder, and the other using live view? Go into your camera's settings and make sure the aspect ratio is set to 3:2 (I'm guessing it's set to 16:9 right now).

  4. Note: It's important to note that I wouldn't really consider this as being a review, per se. I'm not well enough versed when it comes to the world of audio to be able to provide a detailed analysis of things like frequency response, imaging, etc. and to directly compare them to other products on the market. This is more about my impressions and what I think of these headphones just as a regular user, so if you're okay with that, let's proceed. The HE400se is HIFIMAN's latest addition to their planar magnetic headphone lineup, and also their most affordable, coming in at $149. I man
  5. 450W is plenty for your i5 and 1660Ti, it's just that the CV450 is a very mediocre PSU. Ideally I'd get something a little higher quality, like Corsair's CX and CX-F models. In the meantime however, your PSU should be able to power your components without problems, if I had to guess. If something was to go wrong however, the CV450 should have all the necessary protections in place to prevent any damage from occurring to your components.
  6. FC660C owner here - there's a very slight "click" sound on the down arrow key on my board, if I press it specifically in the top right. It's not quite as high-pitched as what you're experiencing, however. Other than that, none of the keys exhibit this "clicking" sound.
  7. Well, if we're talking strictly gaming, the 5600X will do pretty much the exact same thing as the 5900X... and similarly the 6900XT will be about as fast as a 6800XT/3080, unless you've got both GPUs running side by side and you're constantly staring at the FPS counters. Then again, if you just plan on playing Minecraft at 1080p, you might not need neither a 5600X nor a 3080/6800XT. Therefore, if you could tell us what games you plan on playing and at what resolution/settings, as well as what other components you plan on using, it would be very helpful.
  8. can we please make above-ape-level intelligence a requirement for joining the forum, thanks

  9. The H510 is really poor in terms of airflow, mainly because of its very restrictive front panel. Depending on what other components you are using however (particularly the GPU), it shouldn't be that big of a problem. If all you want is something quiet for your CPU, then the Dark Rock 4 should be a great option and alternative to the NH-U12S.
  10. I mean, the U12A is the stronger performer cooling-wise, but even something like an U9S would work perfectly fine. We're talking about a ~60-70W chip here, it really doesn't put out that much heat. So either would work fine. I'd just make sure that you get a case that has good airflow, instead of focusing strictly on getting the biggest heatsink possible for the your 3600. There are also cheaper alternatives you could go with, other than Noctua's offerings, like Arctic's Freezer 34 and be quiet's Pure Rock 2 (and sometimes even be quiet's Dark Rock coolers can be had f
  11. I'd go for the 3600 CL16 kit, unless the 4000 one is somehow cheaper. 4000 CL17 isn't really that much better than 3600 CL16 in terms of latency, and your CPU most likely won't be able to hit 2000MHz on the FCLK, which would drop performance drastically or would require you to downclock the RAM.
  12. Well, there are several factors that come into play. I'd say that for gaming, under ideal conditions, a 10600K and maybe even a 10400 would be faster than a 3600. In this case however, since the i5 would be limited to 2666MHz memory, I'd say it's at best in the same ballpark as a 3600. If you do end up going with a B460 board, then the 10400F would also be a decent choice. In fact, it really shouldn't be too far off a 10600K in the real world. How are the AMD alternatives priced for you locally, compared to Intel? As in B450/A520 chipset motherboards, and the Ry
  13. B460 boards don't natively support Rocket Lake-S CPUs, so you would have to go with the 10600K, between the two. Ideally I'd get a Z490/B560 board which allows higher memory speeds (you'll be limited to 2666MHz with the 10600K on B460), or just go with something like a Ryzen 3600 and a cheap A520/B450/B550 board, but if you already own that motherboard and can't return/sell it, the 10600K should work fine depending on what you plan on doing.
