    HairlessMonkeyBoy reacted to Electronics Wizardy in New Build Follow up for question for Davinchi resolve   
    Id stay away from the qlc drives here due to poor endurance. If you use one drive for projects, and one for boot+cache/proxies/optimized media, you don't want qlc here.
     
    Do you care about color? If you do, Id get a seperate display for the viewer, and a blackmagic card for driving that display.

    It's a relatively small increase in price to get a much faster drive. So in my opinion it is well worth the cost.

    There are also NVME drives that are cheaper than the MX500, which would still be faster. The Rocket Q is quite good though for the marginal increase in cost.

    CoolerMaster is well aware that many coolers are 165mm tall. They specifically chose 166mm as the max clearance to include 165mm tall coolers.

    Unless you are a heavy overclocker, you won't have benefit from that motherboard.
    Put your money elsewhere like getting 32gb memory or having 5900x.

    Changes:
    - Added the PSU from the old post
    - Changed the motherboard to one with Wi-Fi included
    - Added the cooler HairlessMonkeyBoy mentioned

    I might be able to save some money on RAM by checking what's cheaper when I buy the parts for the build but besides that this seems pretty solid

    i5k is not worth it imo. Boards are expensive and overclocking room is not there. I would go for i7 10700/11700 for that budget or just a 5600x.

    The 11400/F performs very similar to the 5600x (around 10-20 fps margine) for almost half the cost really. I'd definitely go with the 11400 over the 5600x for your budget. I believe pcpartpicker has a Netherlands region. I'll compile a list: (Feel free to add in a cooler of your choice)

    HairlessMonkeyBoy got a reaction from 17030644 in Molex to 4 pin   
    There is no 4-pin power connector that can be plugged into a GPU. You seem to be confusing the 4-pin or 8-pin EPS connector which is for the CPU, and the 6-pin or 8-pin PCIe connector which is for the GPU. These are not equivalent, and cannot be used interchangeably.
     
    Generally speaking, if the PSU does not come with the connectors you need, then it is not suitable for your build.

    HairlessMonkeyBoy reacted to penguino in SSD TIER LIST   
    It is. Also I'd downgrade all QLC drives to Tier C at most - they leverage their parameters on caches as QLC chips are very slow and with questionable longevity.
     
    ADATA S50 Lite is a very mediocre "high-end" drive - it slows down significantly as cache runs out and it overheats very quickly which is very problematic as it already comes with a heatsink which is difficult to remove. Those are singnificant drawbacks.
     
    Crucial MP510, PNY CS3030 and Partiot VPN100 also have new versions with Phison E12s controller.
     
    With Crucial it's a serious downgrade, for 480GB version TBW went down from 800 to 360 and random read IOPS rating went down from 360k to 120k IOPS. New version is called Corsair MP510b - beware!
     
    Lastly I'd love to see a very important info added at the very beginning of the thread - that manufacturers quite often switch some components in the new production runs of their product, usually the changes are for the worse. If a drive shows up in this list more than once youcan be pretty much certain that if you're going to buy one new you'll end up with the "updated" variant.
     
    Samsung 980 Pro is also 600TBW. It's a standard for 1TB drive.
    Kingston A2000. It deserves a honorable mention among budget drives as it has a proper DRAM.

    Video Games kept me at home, saving money and out from crowded money spending areas like bars.  I just drank at home instead, played video games and paid off my house and vehicles in 5 years.  I still play video games but have kids now and only play rarely, but no, video games do not cause violence.  I cause violence if I choose to be violent.

    HairlessMonkeyBoy reacted to LAwLz in why are video games good for you   
    He is also going about this completely the wrong way. When you do a report you shouldn't do "I want to prove this, now let's look for evidence that supports it".
    You should ask "do video games cause violence" and then look for evidence, and see what conclusion the evidence brings you to. 
    You shouldn't have predefined conclusions, especially when that predefined conclusion seems based on wishful thinking rather than evidence. If you had evidence to support the idea that video games don't cause violence, then you wouldn't be here asking for evidence to begin with.
     
     
    That's not to say video games cause violence. Just that OP assumes they don't without actually knowing.

    Because having GPU shortages is not bad enough, lets hoard HDD's too. This whole mining is literal cancer for the entire computer industry.
     
    It's especially annoying because with gaming, it's pretty predictable and companies churn out just the right capacities of products. With mining, today they can sell in millions of units and literally over night, whole thing can become worthless and they wouldn't sell a single unit. So no one goes all out to satisfy the demand.
     
    It's also hilarious from ecological standpoint. Everyone bitching to us about cars and appliances to be as efficient as possible yet mining, one of the most inefficinet things known to mankind, the stupid mining, no one bothers with or regulates. And saying it's the same as if it was used for gaming, it's not. What gamer runs anything 24/7 ? Even most gamery gamers would spend what, 8 hours a day max? It's just not comparable in consumption.

    HairlessMonkeyBoy reacted to Sarra in Radiation from computers and Monitors   
    'Harmful' radiation is generally considered to be Ionizing radiation. Ionizing Radiation is going to be Gamma Rays, Beta and Alpha particles.
     
    Ionizing radiation generally requires a Source, a Source being a radioactive substance. The most common Source in your every day life is probably Radium, which you will find (in trace amounts) in every smoke detector you will encounter.
     
    Most, if not all, computer components are not going to contain any kind of radioactive components, and electricity itself is really really hard to 'convert' into, say, Gamma rays, so no. Your computer isn't going to emit anything that is harmful to you, on a cellular level.
     
    As far as 'not harmful' radiation, yes, your computer emits a LOT of 'not harmful' radiation. The light from your monitor, RGB light strips, and the heat that it pumps out the back of the case (or top, or front, or bottom), is all radiation. That said, unless you have like a billion RGB strips, or you've got a Marijuana plant grow powered off your PSU with like eleventybillion UV lights, you aren't going to get Face Cancer or Leg Cancer from sitting in front of your PC.
