  1. I've found the Scythe Fuma 2. Is it good? @boggy77 @Downkey
  2. I'm from Argentina and I don't have a budget (I don't wanna cheap out in the cooler of an expensive CPU). Nevertheless, if there are good more affordable air coolers, better. I don't wanna expend more just because is for a certain brand while there could be other more affordable but efficient coolers out there.
  3. I don't care about the looks because I have all in a Corsair Carbide 275Q. It does not have a window and it's "quiet". Nevertheless, If there are not really good affordable options, I'll pay for the good and expensive ones. It won't be wise to buy an expensive cpu and cheap out on the cooler. Thanks.
  4. Hello, everybody! I'm upgrading from a Ryzen 5 2600X (with the stock Wraith Spire Cooler) in an Asus X470 Crosshair VII Hero Wi-Fi to a Ryzen 9 5900X. I know almost nothing about coolers but I just don't like/feel comfortable with a liquid cooler. Therefore, could you recommend some good air cooler that will not interfere with ram slot or something like that (currently I have 2x16gb sticks) but that will be good enough to cool it. I've seen some like the Arctic Freeze 34 Duo and some others like that. I'll like to avoid the biggest and more expensive ones (Dark Pro 4, f
  5. Thanks a lot for the tips. I'm gonna start the upgrade in february/march, because of the lack of stock of Zen 3 and high prices of Zen 2. Nevertheless, I think I'm gonna stick with your advice of jumping straight to Zen 3. About the ram, I'm really not sure if I'll need more than 64gb. I'm not doing anything with fluids (for the moment) and that is usually what needs more ram in Ansys (as far as I can tell). With structural analysis, I hope I won't need that. So, if there are not really good benefits going 2x32gb over 4x16gb, I think I'll just buy another pair of sticks
  6. Hello! As the title sugest, I want to upgrade in the mid future (4-8 months) because of the limitations I have in the main softwares I use for work. I do primarily engineering simulations and analysis with Ansys, and secondly CAD. My personal rig is: CPU: Ryzen 5 2600x Cooler: Stock Wraith Spire 95W (copper core) Motherboard: Asus X470 Crosshair VII Hero (Wi-Fi) RAM: G.Skill Trident Z Neo 32GB (2x16gb) 3600MHz CL16-19-19-39 GPU: Colorful RTX 2060 Storage: 250GB Samsung SSD 860 EVO, 1TB Western Digital Blue SSD, 2TB Western Digital Blue
  7. Hi! I have the Gigabyte G750H PSU in my rig (Ryzen 2600x, Colorful RTX 2060 and 2 SSDs + 1HDD) since July 2019 and everything works just fine. I know it's not the same, but is the older model that new one is replacing. It's also 750W +80 Gold. Never had any kind of crashes, BSOD or shutdows. For the time being, I can only say it works just fine. Good luck.
  8. I'll look for them. Thanks!
  9. Hello! As title suggests, I want to buy a new keyboard but I need it to be silent. I really don't want RGB so if it's all black, only has a white light or it's possible to turn the RGB off, I'll be glad. I've seen the Corsair Strafe MX Silent (it's a little bit expensive, I think) and the Cougar Vantar (could find it in my country yet). Any suggestions for a reasonable price would be appreciated. Thanks all!
  10. Ok, I'll try to convince him to get at least one of those boards. Thanks a lot!
  11. I'll try to fin a better SSD but I'm not sure he will be willing to pay for it. Maybe, as you said, one of 500GB with a HDD. He needs the new pc soon and the are not many options in an affordable range. Just to give you all examples of why we are used to buy something cheap instead of good: WD Green 1TB SSD cost $125 WD Green 120GB SSD cost $30 Crucial MX500 1TB SSD cost $210 Crucial MX500 500GB SSD cost $135 WD Blue 1TB HDD cost $55 Gigabyte B450M DS3H cost $88 MSI B450 Bazooka cost $160 GTX 1660 Super SC Ultra cost $350 Ryzen 5 260
  12. Sorry, it is the B450M version, I chose the B350 by mistake. Here is the partpicker fixed.

  13. Hi, everyone! As title suggest, I'm gonna build a new pc for my cousin next week. This is what I can gather for a reasonable price (in Argentina every computer park cost roughly twice as in USA, so we can't just upgrade a component if it's not vital) and just wanted to ask you if you think it's a good, compatible build. He should be able to upgrad it in the future, if he wants. He will use it manly for gaming and light autocad, lumion (this software requirements if what I used for reference when I made the build), render, and stuff like that (he is an architect). He, at
  14. Thanks for the fast and simple reply. Then it doesn't matter which I choose. Last question, then. Is it a decent ram? Or should I save a bit more and get someting better?
  15. Hi, everyone! I'm trying to buy 2x16gb ram sticks and I have to decide between two options: Corsair Vengeance Rgb Pro (2x16gb) 3200Mhz Corsair Dominator Platinum Rgb (2x16gb) 3200Mhz I choose this two because they are the cheapest 2x16gb kit with at least 3200Mhz. Both cost the same and seems to have the same timings with D.O.C.P. enabled (16-18-18-36) which is acceptable but not great. Which should I get and why? Could I be able to tighten up some timings better with one than another? Should I just buy anyone and let D.O.C.P. as it is? My mo
