    :ROFLMAO: :blackalien: Yeah... no need for RGB, but I don't mind black everything since my case is white and black. I just canceled the Master and ordered the UNIFY. I'll probably order that black cooler too. You know. I once drove from Mountain View, Californa with a buddy (he lives in...

    Ok... So the Gigabyte X570 Aorus Master is back-ordered until Feb 06, but the unity board is in stock. Should I just switch?

    Is there any different between the two other than $10 and the look?

    That's a great reply from Noctura. I may go with that cooler as well even though AMD recommends water cooling. Not sure if I'll get myself in trouble.

    I ended up going with the Aourus Master. My first build is up and running will transition my stuff today. The only issue I have is that the stock cooler fan seems to be making more noise than expected so I'll have to make sure that's the cause of the whine I hear. Can't handle noise; I always...

    Hey all. Still waiting for my Tomahawk motherboard from BHPhotoVideo. Thank you everyone for your help, I really appreciate. Also I just took the plunge for system number 2. This will be mostly for my DAW workstation and encoding etc. I purchased the Ryzen 9 3950X and all I need now is...

    Does anyone think that 550 80+ power supply is not enough? Just read that my video card needs 450w.

    Not to sound too obtuse, but we're taking about the B450 Tomahawk and not the Max x470, right?

    That MAX is $114 right now and the Asus is $149. I don't see PCIe 4.0 in the near future for me. I've been pretty happy with the performance from SATA SSD's. I'm gathering none of these boards will be compatible with Zen 3? So I figure whatever I get should be adaqueate for the next few years...

    Is that as comparable to the Asus Prime X570-P board? I don't need overkill, but just enough of an upgrade to notice.

    Not much to say to be honest. Mostly wanted a new machine because my other one is getting long in the tooth. I have been overseas for the past few years and not working in IT sector at all. Started taking some courses to update my knowledge and learn some new things. Will continue taking classes...

    Thanks. So the changes I've made were to the cooler and motherboard. I'll consider the SSD's. The cost difference is nominal. Monitors I'm consider due to being on sale. LG UltraGear 34GK950G-B 34" Dell Alienware AW3418DW 34" Any other suggestions?

    Ok.. I'm with you on some of what you say and some I can't figure out. When you refer to U14s, I'm not sure what that is, I'm old so please understand. I figured out your monitor, but I will look for something with freesync since I have an AMD graphics card, but probably wont matter much since I...

    Hello all! I haven't built a PC in quite a while (not including servers or RPi). My last build was an Intel 2600K and that computer is still chugging along. However I feel the need to upgrade. This is the first of two I'll builds, the other will be DAW focused, and is my daily driver which will...
