  1. Yeah im aware. My 1TB SX8200 pro is bought to limit cables and because I got a killer deal on it. Besides that I've been a lover of the MX500 SSD's and used them In all builds I've done for friends. It's only now that I've been given the 660p that I'm looking at it thinking if it's worth using my 2nd m.2 slot for a boot device, use it for my OBS for my stream and maybe a program or two. Or plug it in my laptop Prior to getting it I was going to buy either a MX500 or 860 Evo. Both being Sata 3 none m.2. I'm just here to see what people think, as I've never used a m
  2. Yeah in my case atleast it's free. I would have gone with a 860 Evo as it is plenty snappy for my needs. However I'm kinda at the "why spend money when I have this" debate with myself
  3. True, however my other m.2 I'd rather spend on my game library than on my OS. My thing is either I buy a new MX500 250gb (fair priced here in Taiwan) or I use this. If not I'll most likely use it for my OBS, some games and maybe programs like CCleaner. however I fear that might be a lot of writing which will in turn make it last a shorter time.
  4. So I won't see much in the way of a faster boot, which honestly I don't mind. Been using a A400 sata 3 ssd as a boot device for years. However now that he has given this drive to me, I got curious. People does seem to hate on it pretty bad. Even that it won't live very long with the write tolerance, however I don't imagine that just having a OS and browser installed on it will do much in the way of writes thanks for the advice. Think I'll just save some money on the build and use it as a boot drive
  5. Thing is I don't want to overspend on my boot drive. I only boot my system once per day so I'm not looking for a alternative. I got this ssd for free and want to know what people think about it. How does it fair as a boot device. Is it fast, reliable for that task or am I better of just dumping it in my laptop?
  6. Hi there! So kinda a noob question I guess? I recently received a present from a close friend of mine, as it was my birthday recently. He heard I'm building a new system and dumped a Intel 660p 512gb on me. Now I already got a SX8200 pro 1TB for my games and I'm not sure what to use this one for? I realised I might be able to save some money if I used that as my boot drive instead of investing in a 500gb MX500. However I've been looking online for advice and it seems a lot of people find this to be a bad M.2 nvme ssd? So I want to ask you guys, does anyone k
  7. Thanks a lot mate think it will be the air cooler and the fans. One static pressure to give the cpu cooler direct air and 2 F120 to fill the case with air so my gpu won't die You've been a great help sir~
  8. I will keep both the stock fans for exhaust. Might aswell you know. So you think the P120 for static pressure is better for intake? Don't care much if they match but was thinking maybe having the top intake fan as a p120 would make a more focused stream of air for the CPU cooler. Then 2 F120 for airflow so I can fill up the case with more fresh air.
  9. Alright! Thanks a lot. Guess that does it then. Max out intake fans and a air cooler. Thanks dude. Also one last thing. You think it would be better using a static pressure fan in the top intake slot instead of a airflow? So that one fan can concentrate air straight to the CPU cooler. Then the other two leave them as normal Airflow? Any opinions on that? Or just go full 3 120 airflow?
  10. Yeah I saw this too. But is the ryzen 9 3900x IHS not larger than that of the 9900k? From memory the 34 duo would not cover the whole IHS. Would that not make it less effective?
  11. I was not aware that the 3900x had some problems if you just leave it on stock settings? Anything you can explain further? The Arctic is about half the price of the Dark Rock 4 and ofcourse even cheaper than the Pro. And still a fair Chuck cheaper (35-40%) cheaper than the scythe ninja 5. Also the ninja is pretty thicc boi So you think the 34 duo would be a better/fine option? The Arctic duo is about 40usd here. (Keep in mind it's Denmark so.... Everything costs more. Hence why I did not mention any prices xD)
  12. So I'm sitting here and getting ready to switch out my old i7-6700, and basically my whole old system. I'm going to get into streaming and all the parts of my system has been picked out... Except ofcourse cooling. Now here is what I got so far. MSI x570 tomahawk: Ryzen 9 3900x: Cooler Master Masterbox NR600: comes with 2 stock 120mm fans Crucial Ballistix 2*16 3600mhz ddr4 CL16: MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X (my old card) Fsp HydroG 750w 80+ gold: These are the part but I can't for the life of me make up my damn mind f
  13. I see people saying that the gpu can get in the way of the small fan on the board. Do you judge this to be a issue? I have a MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X. Not the longest card ever. But I'd like the room to upgrade in the near future.
  14. So I'm at the point where I wish to upgrade my old rig. I've decided on a ryzen 7 3700x as my CPU and a Gigabyte x570 aorus elite. But I keep reading online that this board has problems running ram at their marketed speeds. I want to pair the board and cpu with HyperX fury ddr4 8*2GB 3200mhz ram (got a really good deal on them) and was wondering if this is still the case with this board? People have mentioned that the XMP profiles don't really work and that they will down clock them to the regular 2133mhz. Is there need for concern? And would the Asus Tuf x570 be better? They are the same
  15. He is quite busy atm. What if it does not boot?
