  1. https://dynaquestpc.com/collections/power-supply This is the selection I have. I live in the Philippines so I can't reliably provide budget as prices here are pretty different. But for reference, I'd maybe spend around P3,500 at max (the be quiet! U9 is at P2,800)
  2. The (cheap) Palit card I'm looking at is recommended at 450 watts according to the specsheet, so it should be fine per your advice Sadly no :^(( but I've been using low-end laptops my entire life and I figured nvidia wouldn't be releasing anything I can afford anytime soon
  3. be quiet! System Power U9, should fit well since I'm targeting a cheap midrange build (unless my judgment is wrong lmao)
  4. Title, basically. Would a 500W PSU be enough for an overclocked 1660 super and overclocked Ryzen 5 3600? Of course, the ability to upgrade would be a bit compromised, but I figure by the time I'd want to upgrade I'd just build an entirely new rig and pass it down to my younger sister.
  5. Looking at it because it's black with no lighting basically. However I do very much like red and will gladly choose the original version if there are any compromises. You make a good point about clock speeds, though. Have only been able to find two videos on it. Temps seem good though. But I really wanna see a tear-down.
  6. Aside from no dual bios and no quick connect fans, is it completely identical to its red counterpart? The red Pulse has a great cooler design and I'm not sure if the black edition compromises any of that to be cheaper.
  7. I figured as much. But the Frostflow X is pretty much priced the same as the good air coolers from where I'm from, so I might as well take it!
  8. Hey all! Have been eyeing the ID-COOLING FrostFlow X 240 and want to know if it's good or not. I'm building my first system with a R3 3300X, which isn't really a hot processor, but I do plan to overclock it to it's limits and I live in a very warm tropical country (28 to 34 degrees daily ambient temperature). Would the FrostFlow X do the job or would I get more mileage with a higher-end AIO or maybe even an equivalent air cooler (e.g. Cooler Master Hyper 212, DeepCool Gammaxx GT, Noctua NH-U9B; all of which are similarly priced to the FrostFlow X)? Thanks!
  9. I'm only really going with a R3 3300X and a 1660 Super, but I live in a tropical country where ambient temps are regularly between 28 and 35 degrees C and can even reach up to 38 degrees C on the hottest of days. Will probably also explore overclocking (might be a bad idea given ambient temps), so I want to give my PC it's best chance to be cool.
  10. Well, dang. Might have to sacrifice a front dust filter for better thermals then :^(((( more regular dusting and cleaning for better performance seems to be a good deal though
  11. Can't say I'm surprised since it only has an array of pinholes for air intake. Still curious if an array of lines are better than an array of pinholes.
  12. Hey all! I'm curious as to how cases with side air vents perform with thermals. I don't expect them to perform as well as full-mesh fronted cases, but I feel as if cases such as the Phanteks P300, NZXT H510, or the Tecware Nexus M are toasters. Would like to be proven wrong though!
  13. haven't bought it yet but there's a review showing readings from CPU-Z and GPU-Z that it is in fact getting detected as an RTX 2060 Super
  14. Aside from install convenience and space-saving, are there any other meaningful differences between a M.2 SATA SSD and a 2.5" SATA SSD? The Samsung 860 EVO comes in both forms and I'm curious if one is "better" than the other.
  15. Budget (including currency): around $860 Country: Philippines Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Ableton Live 10, Photoshop, Premiere Pro, 1080p gaming (high to ultra settings within the ball park of 75 fps) I'm trying to create a versatile, but non-expensive, rig for both gaming and content creation and have been debating if I should emphasize the CPU or the GPU. I've been window shopping and I've come across two combos: AMD Ryzen 5 2600 + GeForce GTX 1660 Super AMD Ryzen 5 3600 + GeForce GTX 1650 Super Both combinations cost the s
