Quite frankly nothing you have said appears to have any credibility, so if you are quite done wasting my time with these petty criticisms, perhaps I can get back to posting build lists, unless there is something else of "such importance" you wish to complain about.

It is not Linus's tier list. It was made by a random forum user. It just so happens to be on the LTT forums. If I could erase one thing off the internet it would be that due to all of the confusion it causes. It is not a source for how good or bad a unit is.

The protections aren't perfect on it but they do work. It is a great PSU. I wouldn't get it over a Focus Plus, RMx, RM, etc but now isn't the time to be picky. You would to have to pay double if not more to get one of those units. Don't go pressing your luck. Also Evga has nothing better than it, Evga has stopped making any high end PSU's.

M.2 is a just a form factor of SSD's. NVME is a protocol. Apples to oranges. What you really meant is SATA and yes although its not really noticeable when it comes to load and boot times (since the bottleneck is often elsewhere) but if you can get a superior product for the same price why past it up even if it won't really make a large difference.

Is $1500 the max you can do? PSU prices are stupidly high right now.

PSU is out of stock at Bestbuy. $225 on Amazon with it arriving between July and August.

Not gonna remove the RGB! But I would suggest a different case since that has a pretty closed off front which will hurt airflow. I would recommend the Phanteks Eclipse P400A Digital. It has better airflow, 3 RGB fans, and costs about the same (when it is in stock on Newegg at least).

I haven't checked SSD prices in a while but you should be able to get a NVME drive for about the same price.

What is this build for?

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Liquid Vs. Air Cooling, Which is Better Now Days?"

  • 1 day ago

You have it backwards. $40 HSF's will out perform a $60+ AIO (which will likely be 120MM). Cheap 120MM AIO's just lack the surface area to compete with high end ~$40-$50 HSF's. It is only once you start getting into 240MM AIO's that there is a performance advantage and often cheap 240MM's will usually just match high end HSF's. You gotta spend ~$100 for good results from one.

How much of a pain is liquid cooling though?

None assuming you mean AIO.

Do you need to replace the liquid or maintian it in some way?

No.

Does the computer as a whole produce less heat?

No, the same amount of heat will be dissipated into the air. Hell a AIO may even make the room hotter if it performs better since it will be transferring heat better.

How much noise do these usually make?

Depends on the AIO but usually more than a decent HSF due the addition of a pump.

Not a terrorist and the aren't always police ain't innocent or professional here, that is the entire reason of the protests going on right now. Antifa is a ideology/movement. It lacks any structure or organization. It is literally impossible for it to be a terrorist group. I can claim to be antifa, you can, anyone can.

The police are acting pretty fascist right now. Arresting people for freedom of speech, beating people on the ground, etc without any consequences. It feels as if they have to kill someone for something to happen to them criminally and even then they may get off without any consequences.

Should they shoot innocent people? Kill people? Arrest people for using their 1st amendments right? Beat people on the ground? Blindly following orders is no excuse for that. If you are told to do something wrong you don't do it. Simple as that.

The president is adding fuel on the fire by the gallon though calling people who are protesting against the fascist terrorists and suggesting to out right shooting the looters by the government. Our leader is paying no attention to the cause of these protests, it is amazing he is this tone deaf.

Efficiency and that is it and ironically efficiency is pretty meaningless outside of extremes.

The B5 has no reviews out for it, its quality and performance is unknown. Getting it would be quite a poor choice.

It is a systemic failure in accountability. Who watches the watchmen? The police police themselves which is a joke. Sure there are some people who don't need to be told not shoot at protesters but they can do it because there are absolutely zero consequences for doing so. What needs to happen something similar to UCMJ for the police.

Also you should get what you pay for, police in major cities are paid well but do police brutality just as good as police in smaller cities who are paid less. The police in my city are paid decently but are doing a fine job at police brutality and had the balls to put up a thin blue line flag.

You are going to pay out of the *** for the motherboard and PSU right now. If anyone lists anything comparable for significantly less it is probably out of stock and they didn't check.

If you have to spend only 2K you could wait until prices go back to normal for the PSU and motherboard. That should put it right at the $2000 mark.

Nothing besides being able to buy one or two things more off the dollar menu a year. Despite manufacturer making it a big deal efficiency is really meaningless when it comes to saving money. It is like only a 5% difference on a ~300W build which is only a ~15W difference under full load.

Well that one is $225 and will get to you some time late july early august...Also while its not awful I wouldn't call it a great PSU. $100 isn't going to get you a high end PSU anymore.

https://pcpartpicker.com/product/bkp323/seasonic-focus-plus-gold-550w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-atx-power-supply-ssr-550fx

$180 seems to be a good deal for this as crazy as it sounds.

If you want more than 550W you will need to spend $250.

No it lacks any reviews and is group regulated on top of it. It is what I would call quite a poor choice in PSU.

Before you say it, no reviews? Consumers can not review PSU's. They are one of the very few parts that consumer input is generally worthless on since there is no easy way to test it unlike a CPU, GPU, case, etc. Consumers just can't simply review a PSU since it requires opening it up and taking it apart, extensive knowledge about electrical engineering and PSU's, and having expensive equipment to test performance. The first two are doable but the 3rd is what really stops people. Most people don't even own a simple oscilloscope much less everything a place like Tom's uses. Its why most sites and channels either half *** PSU reviews at best or don't do them at all. The reviews that matter are professional reviews from sites like Tomshardware, Techpowerup, Jonnyguru, etc.

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/why-99-percent-of-power-supply-reviews-are-wrong/

This is more geared towards websites but it applies to consumer reviews too.

This is everything Tomshardware does to review a PSU.

As someone who unfortunately did trolling in his early teenager years I can say what he wants is a reaction and by reacting to him you are just encouraging him to continue on with his antics. As hard as it may be just downvote him and move on, you are wasting your breath and encouraging him by replying to him.

How does seat belt get worn out within 12K miles?

It is going to cost thousands to get a proper paint job.

As for the scratch itself I'm not autobody expert but I would say somewhere around $500 with it likely being on the higher side.

You are pretty screwed when it comes to insurance due to the speeding ticket and two accidents in just one year. You are going to be seen as high risk by every provider. Don't bother with the monitoring devices. Even if you drive like a grandma it will classify you as high risk, it collects your data to make them money, and I'm not exactly sure how it would work if you were in another car or something.
