Well then, you can't go wrong with all the good exclusives. The eShop also has plenty of deals on a consistent basis

Also I would like to mention they used a dual-fan PNY card, and the white version of the case.

I think they should study a little more before they make the video again. I mean, who puts the cpu in the motherboard AFTER the motherboard is already installed?

Go Meshify C, and keep the cabinet open. And then drill holes in the back of the cabinet for more airflow.

In my opinion, it would only do so if overclockable, and it isn't, so the use case will honestly depend on the performance of the iGPU in regular tasks and lighter games like Dota

Well, memory can be overclocked anyways. If you can get 2933 at least on the C10 stuff, it should give a tangible improvement, otherwise just return it and get the C15 RAM.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Suggested RAM!?"

  • 18 months ago
  • 2 points

8GB should be fine unless you have stuff like Discord or Youtube in the background. If that is the case go 16GB. Also for Ryzen you want at least 2666mhz on the RAM, a CAS of 15 also helps if possible

You should probably go with a good air cooler, like the NH-D15 (if it fits), or the Hyper 212 Evo if you want to save some money.

ok this is cool, I have to admit. It would probably get outperformed by an AMD FX 8XXX based system, but it's so cool nonetheless

There is one more solution. Use the USB-C monitor with the Ryzen 5 APU, you'll lose a little cpu performance, but the PC will become more efficient.

It's from a reputable brand, is more than enough, and it has 80+ bronze. And I used the parametric filter because PSUs go on sale all the time.

You probably want to upgrade the CPU to an i5 8400. It would remove potential CPU bottlenecks, as well as outperform the i7 3770 or any quad core i7 thanks to its two extra cores

It would work just fine, as a monitor is a monitor. The fact that it is portable shouldn't affect compatibility

an AMD FX 8 core wouldn't be a bad idea if you can get decent cooling and a power supply for cheap. If you are willing to pay a little more, ASrock has a board with USB C, but most boards available new right now should be enough, or higher end used boards if you can get them for cheap
