Yes it's fine, 1050 Ti can run on 350W PSUs.

IMO the Gigabyte is a much better deal if Type-C header isn't needed. Issues with this board: * Non-standard rear PCB makes it incompatible...

AX200 is used in almost every high-end motherboard and laptop now, you're very unlikely to have any issues with it. I use the EDUP kit for...

The problem with mesh cases is that they allow all sorts of noises to pass through directly. HDD wind up, coil and static noises are often...

Simplest solution would be a TLC SATA SSD and USB 3.0 enclosure. This would cost $153+shipping for 1TB....

It's possible but enclosures are not cheap and you'll be restricted to half of its maximum speed, SATA SSDs make more sense for portable...

Hi OP, messaged you on Saturday but haven't heard back yet. I'll probably need a 3 phase setup (or micro-inverters?), panels for N, W and...

B550 Aorus Pro has slightly better VRMs but the Tomahawk has slightly slightly better heatsinks. They have near identical performance. What...

Speeds are similar but Barracuda 120's TBW (endurance) is rated almost twice of MX500.
13/08/2020 - 09:58
Price on the unit has consistently hovered around $140 for many months now. Nevertheless, it's good to see Skycomp and I-Tech offering...

Seasonic CORE Series GM 500W 80+ Gold Semi-Modular Power Supply $119 + Delivery @ Mwave
Good price on a higher-end semi-modular PSU with 7-year warranty. 12V rail is rated for 492W, suitable for 5700 XT or 2070 Super builds.

This one stood out to me as the best deal in the lot, we're finally back to 2019 levels of SSD pricing?...

4x2x50A is a bit stronger than 5x2x(1+2). The ATX Steel Legend is of course better than both, comparable to B550 Aorus Pro.
10/08/2020 - 20:58
B550M Steel Legend has the same VRM setup as X570 Steel Legend, B550 Steel Legend (ATX variation) is better than both. ASRock is still...

This board has a better VRM setup and audio chipset than the B550-A Pro.
10/08/2020 - 17:35
Yep, it's just something to take into consideration if choosing a case with USB-C. There's still rear USB-C so you're not missing out on it...

To use 4x(1+2) as an example, 4 is the number of chokes (in this case phases), 1 is the number of high-side transistors and 2 the number of...

Sorry, front USB-C support. Missed a letter there.
10/08/2020 - 13:03
This board has a 4x(1+2) setup whereas A320MH uses 3x(1+1), so it'll be a fair bit better. You'll still want to make sure there is some...

ASRock B550M Steel Legend Motherboard $219 + Delivery @ Shopping Express
High-end B550 this time at mid-range prices. 4x2x50A VRM setup and large heatsinks makes it suitable for 3950X OC. Comparable to MSI B550M...
10/08/2020 - 12:52
That's an unrelated unit from a different OEM. The GS uses an older platform with slightly worse build quality (which is still fine for the...

A few options you can look into - $60 - Thermaltake H18 $75 - Antec DP301M $90 - Cooler Master NR400 $110 - Metallic Gear Neo Micro $110 -...

Considerably better than Tomahawk / Mortar.
31/07/2020 - 01:22
B450I Gaming Plus AC is a bit of an outlier and it is slightly better than this board. I haven't really taken it into consideration as it's...
31/07/2020 - 01:21
It's bad compared to $250+ B550 motherboards but still blows any B450 board out of the water (including $260 B450 boards). The point to...
30/07/2020 - 14:55
Maybe compared to T Series. Latest E15 has better build quality than my Dell Latitude from work.
29/07/2020 - 01:53
E14 is available for $869 if you have an edu email https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/549085. Build quality is much higher than the latest...

If it's the B350 motherboard from Biostar, audio interference is an issue on those boards. Getting a ground loop noise isolator fixed the...
26/07/2020 - 14:33
Yep, something like the InWin BL647 would work well for an APU build....
