  1. Why did this need another thread/discussion started?
  2. https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/products/power-supply/#t=10&B=100&sort=wattage&page=1 SFX units that have an 8-pin (4+4) CPU power connector; that page can be further filtered to fit other criteria you need to meet - in case you need to swap your unit out for a more appropriate on, if you feel it will give additional peace of mind.
  3. https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/products/compare/9tNv6h,DPrYcf/ Asus claims 1000nits (cd/m²) vs 400 for the LG LG claims HDR600, however... but it shouldn't be assumed that 1000cd/m² means HDR1000. Both are IPS panels, so colour integrity 'should' be the same... EDIT: What tasks would either panel be required to perform?
  4. When you go through the 'installation' start-up of Windows (10...?), do you notice any existing partitions on the drive you want to use? While a fresh install will delete these, it doesn't hurt to delete existing partitions before you ask Windows to install itself... esp. as you have said that no major data is going to be lost.
  5. Does the case you're using require you to have an SFX (small form factor, for the smaller generation of PC cases) power supply...?
  6. Back on topic; if both are easily available (ideally from the same store) go for best value for money. The same 'board 'should' (BIOS update dependant) support both CPU's... the only 'spanner/wrench' in the works is the (highly likely) prospect of AM5 putting in an appearance in the next 12mths. Once it does, anything AM4 based will start getting the 'out-of-date' "tax" added to it - along with the dwindling supply that's associated with it - so unexpected failures may get costly...
  7. Sticking with what you have until code requires you to change to a part that needs more cores ends up trapping you in an obsolescence loop... where you find that by the time you 'have to swap' you end up with a bigger budget to find to buy more parts to assist the upgrade. When the 9900K came out nothing mainstream 'needed' 8-cores but '5.3GHz' was nice to have (even if 7-cores were wasted). Maybe what we need is a generation of low core count/high IPC CPU's... rather than vice versa...
  8. I don't get the thinking that you 'need to have a workload that can use 8-cores' to justify having one, yet awards & plaudits were heaped on the likes of the i9-9900K for being (of its' time) best-in-class, while being an 8-core CPU that was ungodly expensive for its' time. Why can't someone have an 8-core CPU 'because they can afford one'...? /hijack. EDIT: Not much outside of productivity 'needs' eight or more cores, so should users outside those fields be 'restricted' to four cores or less...??
  9. What motherboard are you wanting to connect the Unifans to?
  10. Easiest answer, there - for me - would be "what genres do I like & what's available?". Add to that; are you an existing XBox user that upgraded or a total (platform) beginner?
  11. The no. on each model refers to the size, in centimeters; aside from that I would hazard a guess as F = Airflow optimised & P = Pressure optimised.
  12. Mix & match motherboard & graphics card is normal; only issues would be if either component is DOA which means take/send it back... The Gigabyte board isn't bad, so to speak... do you 'need' wi-fi or will you be using a cabled connection, for example? Also; unless your case has a Type-C front USB, the 3.2 Gen. 2 header is wasted.
  13. What are the exact models of the B350 & X570 'boards you're using? What make/model is the drive?
  14. Looking at the front of the case, take off the RH side panel; there are SSD attachment points 'behind the motherboard'. ... those; you attach the drive(s) before you put the motherboard in. EDIT: By behind the motherboard, I mean on the other side of the panel the motherboard attaches to.
  15. Dunno if this is any help... EDIT: FTR - retailers will always recommend you what they have in stock (even if it's actually worse), to get your money NOW, rather than later.
