    An SSD is about the only significant upgrade you can make with that budget. You can probably find something on amazon in the range of 1Tb.
    Crucial P2 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive seems within your budget.

    Maybe a cooler if you are stuck with intel's poor excuse for a cooler to gain a little performance but the NVME SSD is a much better choice.

    I have always used a tool bag and a tool tray. Tool bags are really cheap. Tool boxes suck. I buy small plastic food boxes to hold little things and that is better than the trays that come in tool boxes.. My tool bag I put somewhere safe like a lockable closet somewhere on site and i put what i need into the tray. I also use a tool bag for my fishing gear.

    Amazon basic thing is quite useful (would fit most of your smaller things like SSD/HDD, cables, etc.): https://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-Universal-Organizer-Electronics-Accessories/dp/B002VPE1QG
    for screws: depending on how many you need and which size they are: falcon tubes or smaller centrifuge tubes (for both you can buy boxes)

    I would suggest a backpack for numerous tools and equipment like the ones you use. 
     
    However, I would suggest getting a Pro Tech Toolkit (or a Manta Driver Kit) as it'll be more compact than many individual screwdrivers.

    I use a couple of these at work:

    The pockets and segmented compartments allow you to nearly store most items.
     
    not sure if that bag is available where you are, but you should be able to find something similar

    Sorry if this is necroposting, but just get an Ifixit pro toolkit. 75 dollars for everything you could possibly need, plus a good folding pouch case.

    Hey group! I hope everyone is doing fine.

    I've been working data and software for 20+ years but with lockdown and @home work, I've been doing way more on the side home support than usual. 
     find myself in need of advice on how to lug all my stuff.

    I carry an iFixit analog kit, some usb thumb drives, a heat gun, some plastic sleeve box, spare SDD and HDD, an enclosure, screwdrivers, pliers, box cutter knife, thermal compound, some cables (Power plug, Sata, USB, a patchcord and crossover, Display port, HDMI) a magnetic screw tray, a bag of zip ties and a bag of screws.

    I put all this in a grocery fabric tote bag. The back is quite full and the tools are getting banged up, bags have opened and I lost some M.2 screws.

    So my questions:
    Do I carry too much? I could probably ditch the heat gun and sleeve but I like having it around. for phone work.
    If you have a similar cargo, what do you use to lug it around?

    This might work for your smaller tools and some of the accessories:
    If I were you, I'd definitely look into a bit of a larger bag with separate compartment too, so things don't just bang around in one bag.
     
    You should carry around what you need. If you think you carry around too much, try making two separate bags. 
    One with things you always use and then the rest. You might be able to leave bag #2 behind and only take it (or part of it) if you know you need it.
     
    This might give some inspiration too:

    Quickstrike got a reaction from DJ46 in i5 4460 Question   
    In my experience, you'll get more value if you sell the RAM/Mobo/Cpu in a combo
    150-200$ US for all 3 would be top dollar in Canada.
    I personally wouldn't buy a 10 years old CPU without a motherboard. Finding the Mobo would undo any possible economies of buying a used CPU.

    Read this
    https://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/IDE_master/slave#:~:text=Slave is one of two main settings for a hard disk.&text=If you have a single,the second%2C or secondary drive.

    And get a USB key instead of using that garbage.

    Have you tried using the ram sticks in another pc maybe? Just to make sure the ram slots on the MoBo or the CPU aren't the problem?

    Pointless to ask now. Come back when you're ready to build. Parts, pricing, etc will all have changed by then.

    The rads are all listed, they're all EK's SE, CE or PE series.  There's 2x480mm rads on the loop for the 10980xe and 2 x Radeon VII's.  The 2nd loop has the 240mm and 420mm radiator for the 3950x and RTX 3090.
     
    Fittings are all Bitspower 16mm OD with 16/12mm PETG tubing.
     
    As for cooling product, the only thing I use is type II deionized water with an antimicrobial additive.  I've had too many issues over the years from running "fancy" coolants.

    Wow...
    So many fans, have you tried to make it hover?

    Quickstrike got a reaction from Jason 57 in Where could I put fans in this case?   
    I just saw your other post... (Will a 3070 fit in a tx 606 super case?)

    For the love of god, don't try to put a 3070 in that case... It's an office computer case, it's not made for gaming parts, no matter how many fans you put in there. Your card is going to fry itself in months.

    you can get a nice Phanteks P300 mesh or a Cooler Master NR 600 for not more that what that case is worth and those cases have airflow and enough space for your GPU.

    Quickstrike got a reaction from Mark Kaine in Question about Macrium backups   
    I used Macrium a few times on a mechanical hard drive . 
    It wont backup what's loaded in ram, only on the disk you are imaging. If your file has a temporary file on disk, yes it will back that up, otherwise it won't.

    You can verify the integrity your image if you are worried once the backup is over.

    Good build, prices are really high right now, that CPU is normally $100-$120 USD. Don't go lower on that PSU, its great + you can upgrade with it. I would wait a few months or go with the Ryzen 5 2600 for $20 for a lot more performance.

    Quickstrike reacted to Fasauceome in I have a Ryzen 5 3600 with an EVGA 700 watt 80 plus Bronze PSU. Would it be just enough for a RTX 3080 on stock? Thanks in advance!   
    I really don't trust any of the EVGA bronze units to handle the transient power spikes of the 30 series.
