    Prebuilt got a reaction from Jason 57 in Logitech G Pro Wireless Headset wont work   
    GHUB is know to have issues. I cannot connect my G502 nor my G512. Maybe try changing the audio settings on your PC. You should be able use your headset without a software.

    when i build my rig i got 4 fans to try out
    PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price Case Fan NoiseBlocker ELoop B 58.1 CFM 120 mm Fan $27.65 @ Amazon Case Fan Noctua F12 industrialPPC-3000 PWM 109.89 CFM 120 mm Fan $25.95 @ Amazon Case Fan Noctua F12 PWM chromax.black.swap 54.97 CFM 120 mm Fan $22.90 @ Amazon Case Fan Noctua A12x25 PWM 60.1 CFM 120 mm Fan     Prices include shipping, taxes, rebates, and discounts     Total $76.50   Generated by PCPartPicker 2021-01-30 20:43 EST-0500    
    they all work pretty well, the a12x25 has the best mounting system though
    the noiseblocker is not that much less expensive but it looks the best and the mount system on it seems good too im thinking of filling up the rest of the case with these (white color lian li o11 xl )
    the industrial i use for exhaust on the back of the case when things ramp up i can hear this fan but it has alot of cfm.
    the cromax works i guess but i would get the original or noise blocker over this. ama wait until that new white color noctua comes out though that's probably gonna be the best.
    look into the noiseblocker though its probably not as quality built as the original noctua but it looks sweet and has good cfm to noise ratio. i would say still good enough quality. cant beat the noctua mounting system though

    The Arctic fans are about 85-90% as good as the Noctuas, and significantly cheaper. You can get a 5 pack for about $40USD. If you're looking for a comparable CPU cooler, the Scythe Fuma 2 is a touch over 1/2 the price of the Noctuas, and again, about 90% of the performance.

    Noctua is good but at this point you pay a lot extra just for the brand and warranty + service. 
    If you want a good cheap cooler then just grab the Arctic Freezer 34 eSports. They are very simmilar to the Noctua NH-U12A for 3x less and the Arctic fans are actually great.
    IDK where you live, but in my country you can have this cooler for about $35 with tax included. I had both the NH-U12A, Freezer 34 eSports and now I run the Liquid Freezer II 360 AIO from Arctic. The fan noise is roughly the same as Noctua, the sound signature is a bit different but not annoyin in any way, its more a low hum than a high pitch noise.

    Prebuilt got a reaction from ProBottler in Low Profile: Gateron Brown vs Gateron Blue?   
    With browns the tactile feel is more subtle, more like a light bump. With blue switches, the tactile feel is thicker, more like a click.

    Rocket lake should help normalize prices and availability, so I’d wait.

    Prebuilt reacted to porina in Should I wait for Rocket Lake or just get Zen 3 now?   
    If Zen 3 does what you want, and you can find it at a reasonable price, go for it. Rocket Lake is likely going to be around similar performance, so unless you have a good reason to prefer one over the other, doesn't matter much either way.

    Eh, tough choice! but if you decide to get a 3000 Series from Nvidia or a 6000 series from AMD, please please PLEASE do not get an overpriced one from ebay / amazon etc, do not feed the scalpers market.

    Dont forget,even the quiet keyboards you find,you can put the rubber ring around key caps to make it even more quiet.
    My buddy has a razer black widow with green switches,and that shit is loud.He bought pack of those rubber things for couple of euros on amazon,and it made a lot of difference

    1440p 144 hz all the way. Forget 1080p. 1080p & many FPS only if you're pro player or playing competitive in big leagues and need the extra FPS and quality is not important.

    240Hz is for the most serious of gamers, people who really want to have the competitive edge.
    For enjoying the games you play, 1440p makes a lot more of a difference than 240Hz.

    Prebuilt got a reaction from WereCat in DDR5 RAM: Should I upgrade my PC now with RDNA 2 or RTX 3000 series and Ryzen 5000 series or wait a bit longer?   
    Well I think I may upgrade around November to December then. If there it's going to take a year or two and if it doesn't really benefit me personally then I may upgrade during that time.
    Thx for all your opinions.

    Prebuilt reacted to Eigenvektor in DDR5 RAM: Should I upgrade my PC now with RDNA 2 or RTX 3000 series and Ryzen 5000 series or wait a bit longer?   
    You probably won't see DDR5 in the desktop market until AM5 and Zen 4 are released, which means you'd be waiting at least another year or more. And if DDR4 is an indication, the first release of DDR5 will probably be slower than high end DDR4, which means you'll be waiting some more for frequency to go up.
    If you don't need something right now, by all means, wait. Just keep in mind that "something new" is always on the horizon. By the time DDR5 arrives, you'll be waiting for PCIe 5.0 or even 6.0. And once those arrive you'll be waiting for Zen 5 and RTX 5000 series (or whatever it'll be called).

    Yep, and almost nothing the typical home user runs right now would even benefit from it. Sure, there'd be some benchmark gains, but in practical terms, it'd be an invisible and expensive upgrade.

    Prebuilt reacted to jj9987 in NVIDIA Trade-In Program: Can I trade in my RTX 2060 for a new RTX 3000?   
    Nvidia does not have any trade-up programs. I know EVGA has one, if you purchased EVGA card and within 90 days a newer product comes out, then you can step-up.
