Have you looked into trying something like the Arctic accelero iii? It's an aftermarket GPU cooler that will perform better than any AIB...

Thanks so much for a very detailed response! Mine was a team group set and iirc thaiphoon listed it as micron-something, so (unless...

What were the original timings at 2666? Mine was from techfast as well, started at 2666CL19 but didn't seem to boot at 3200CL19. Also what...

Thanks for the insight!

Genuinely curious- are other PSUs actually usually audible? I've only ever used a corsair cx450 (ATX) and it runs silent with the system...

Ohhh interesting, thanks for the info.
05/07/2020 - 20:18
What went wrong with it?
05/07/2020 - 17:59
Not as good for boot drive, better as a secondary.

Great deal! Got them for about $30 from Aliexpress and have been really happy with them. Convenience and portability is the biggest draw...

Thanks for the reply. Guess I'll have another look. Goodluck for exams mate.

Not exactly. 2012 had upgradable HDD + RAM, 2018/2020 is RAM only. SSD is soldered.
27/06/2020 - 12:06
That sounds pretty great! Wifi is out of my control so I have zero expertise lol.
26/06/2020 - 21:27
:S Used that one for a while lol, just recently upgraded to a dual band one with BT. Not sure I could really notice the difference with how...
26/06/2020 - 21:17
That wouldn't even work on this exact model (B450M-A pro) unless it was a 1-slot GPU. Most M-ATX mobos have (just) enough space for a...
26/06/2020 - 21:13
No it doesn't, but you can very easily add something like this:...
26/06/2020 - 21:09
Yep exactly :| It makes sense how it is but its a shame it turned out like this because B550 is overkill for a lot of users and just ends...
26/06/2020 - 21:07
Be aware that the B450M-A Pro is a different size (smaller) than this one. So this X470 won't fit in the same cases as the B-450M, or the...
26/06/2020 - 21:05
Thanks for the info! Was hoping to save some money on a B450m board by going with Gigabyte over the Mortar Max, but their online rep said...

Is there a list of which mobo brands/models are committed to updating 400 series boards for Zen 3? Haven't been able to find anything...
26/06/2020 - 20:45
That would explain it then, I am a student. Fwiw Swinburne's one is available for all students so another option out there for anyone...

Hey man, I'm at Monash as well and was looking around for the education Win10 license but didn't see it free for us. Where/how did you get...

Good model at a good price. Review: https://youtu.be/lLHP_ubnjfQ

Could throw in the "latest design keyboard" part as well while you're at it. No idea what ACL says about this though.
22/06/2020 - 22:40
Good on you mate, definitely an easy mistake to make if you just look at the listing.
22/06/2020 - 22:36
Beware people, this is the 2019 base model (2 ports, 1 internal fan, old keyboard). 1.4 GHz processor, as well as the model number on the...

IPS is considered the best for most uses.
22/06/2020 - 21:12
This mobo is for intel 10th gen so it isn't compatible with the same CPUs as the B450. If you're looking for a new CPU and motherboard,...
14/06/2020 - 21:10
Have seen some concerns about AM4 nearing the end of its life, so buying into B550 + Zen 3 might not provide the same upgrade longevity as...
11/06/2020 - 21:45
B550 is supposed to launch in about a week I think, so probably worth holding out to at least see what else is out there. Are we expecting...
11/06/2020 - 21:41
That's interesting. QCY has a pretty big range of buds in this price range so I guess some of them must have the direct connection.
