    DVA got a reaction from CriissO in How should I go about cooling a i7 9700k?   
    Look at Noctuas, NZXT Kraken, Corsair H115i or Corsair H150.
    The budget helps, but the case name and sizes would help also. Being able to set up a 240mm/280mm/360mm radiator...etc...
    For air cooling you should be fine with a Dark Rock Pro4 or a Noctua NH-D15

    DVA got a reaction from obialoonyekachi in Mobile gaming for daughter.   
    Hey guys! I would like some suggestions for mobile gaming for my daughter. For the most part she just plays Pokemon GO on it. She's 7. I would also like it to be mobile because I know she doesn't always want to listen to my music, so letting her have some freedom of choice is good. 
     
    (before anyone leaves negative feedback for letting a child get a tablet, I limit her on her usage and when I say time's up, time is up)
     
    I'm thinking of setting my price cap at $300 and hoping for it to last the next two years or so. 
    Used/refurbished is an option and older generation suggestions should last for the next two years or so. 
     
    Thanks for any help

    I didn't like the lesser CPU and DIY case. DIY cases, while cheap as hell, also feel cheap and most are heat traps. NO bueno. I do think OP should buy his GPU on Prime Day or something, the 570 does seem like a solid option if low budget is his thing.

    OP's build is actually better despite the $50 increase. I'd stick with his to be honest. 
     
    @NewBuilder01 The only thing I would suggest is spending an extra 30 bucks for a total of 16 gigs rather than 8. It goes a long way in terms of multi-tasking. Even minuscule things such as surfing the web, trust me.

    i say too: Take the iPad. even if it's 350-380 or something (due to LTE connectivity. Only the LTE iPad comes wth GPS included. Wifi model has no GPS).
    (In the next weeks, a new iPad 2019 could come out, there have been rumors already. And apple certified them already)
     
    It is worth it.
     
    Literaly EVERY singel Android Option that's cheaper than the iPad 2018, it will have significantly lower performance, and will be outdated very soon.
    iPad is easier to use, much better optimized, way more and better Apps (that actually look and work good on a Tablet, and aren't just "blown up smartphone Apps".
    And yea, much longer updates, much longer "useable", more stable performance over the years.
     
    And that even before considering it getting the very very interesting iPadOS in 2-3 months.
     
    base iPad does have a better Value overall than every Android tablet, sadly

    Thanks guys! Seems like a pretty open and shut case. I was thinking exactly that, the 3600. I just didn't want to add any bias but it seems that it's the obvious choice here! Thanks fellas!

    I agree, the Ryzen 5 3600 is a great CPU for this price range, and then you can use the remaining $100 for other things like possibly a better GPU or faster memory if he is not into memory overclocking.

    Take the iPad
     
    As much as I dislike Apple, their entry iPad is admittedly good value. Most affordable (and I mean actually affordable) Android tablets have garbage specs. Most importantly, the Android ecosystem is rife with shady apps left unchecked. Even well known apps try to harvest and datamine off your device, and hurl ads at the user. Apple does a better job curating their app store and has far superior measures to protect the user's privacy.
     
    Your child's safety and privacy is important to protect. iPad is the safest choice to go with and you are fortunate it is priced well for you. Just keep in mind you don't want your children getting too comfortable and take Apple devices for granted. Apple's grand scheme is to entrap users in its 'ecosystem' which has been designed to be extremely punishing if the user wants to exit with all his data intact. Once grown up (especially for children in current and future generations) your child should know her way around all the pitfalls of less secure systems.

    Definitely the iPad, it'll last longer and they're much easier to use (considering she is 7 I am assuming that is a factor). If you want something smaller I'd recommend an iPhone 6/6s plus, 7 plus for longer lifespan if budget permits. 5.5 inch screen might be more manageable than a 9.7 and its still a phone so it has extra utility

    How old is she? A tablet gets to be a real PITA to carry around after a while. It's why I stopped using them.
    If she's fine with a larger phone, maybe consider just picking up a Mi Max 3. They're quite cheap, should have enough screen space, and if you check the bands should have the internet connectivity covered as well.

    DVA got a reaction from Paul Rudd in MSI 1070ti for $359.99 - Amazon (US)   
    In case anyone needs this, here's a MSI 1070ti going for a mere $359.99. You won't really find this price anymore so if you need it, jump on it. It's performance is very comparable to a 2070 which retails for $459 +

    well at least there honest. If I were you I would try to get a better card from them for the same price and if it comes in and doesn't work you can always say it does not match what is described in the add an get a full refund plus shipping.

    DVA got a reaction from mrchow19910319 in Phone suggestions. $650 USD cap   
    Thanks for the great info! What are your thought on getting the 8 plus, used? I find Apple OS to be very safe and stable so a reformat / wipe before official use would be done. I have never owned Apple but I have used a few from friends and family. Seems great to me, my only gripe is the "Apple tax" on their new products.

    iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus gets my recommendation. Stellar camera with 10x optically assisted zoom (Plus model only) stereo speakers, IP67, and wireless/quick charging. 
     
    The iPhone 8 Plus will receive at minimum 4 more years of iOS updates and the A11 Bionic still tops benchmarks. The 3GB of RAM (8 Plus only) is also managed to be more effective than 6GB on equivalent Android devices. 
     
    iPhone 8: $599 new
    iPhone 8 Plus: $699 new
     
    I would look to see what you can find refurbished and used. A refurbished iPhone 7 Plus would be good too.
