The images in the current listing on PcPartPicker are the outdated pictures of the cooler, using the old logos and such (especially the first picture, still having the really old white Arctic logo)
What I mean is replace all of these outdated images on the PcPartPicker listing of the part, aka remove them, and replace them using the new and updated images in the Amazon part link
$400 - $500
u rite wtf
Google is your friend
As long as you set the bitrate to 5000 - 8000 (depending on your internet upload speed) and the encoder to NVENC in OBS, you should be fine for streaming at 60fps 720/1080p
Cereal first, you can put more cereal into the bowl than if you went with milk first
yes, just be sure you have a graphics card installed since neither the Ryzen 3 1200 nor the Ryzen 5 3600 have integrated graphics
Depends who I was friends with for longer
You're asking less than $100 bucks and at least 1050 performance with new cards, beggars can't be choosers here at this price and performance demand bracket lol
This is a good system
If you need a cheaper case, the Rosewill FBM-X2 will work, and it's a very compact mATX case too
Alright looks like Ryzen 3 is gonna be kinda outta the question until (or if) 7nm Ryzen 3 comes out
or the 12nm refresh is cheap
Soooooooo, Ryzen 3 is releasing on July 7th too on the 7nm process? Or no
btw Zen 2 is releasing in July 7th, but not Ryzen 3. It's Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7 to start with.
For GTA V, try alt-tabbing, open up task manager, go to "details", right click "gtav.exe" and set the priority to "high"
It may fix the issue you're having on that game
One. It's a 20" Dell E2011H, 1600x900 monitor, which I OC'd to 75hz. I also have the soundbar attached to it
Zen2 is supported on B450 and X470, while only select few B350 and X370 may support Zen2, while A320 doesn't support Zen2
Um I'm going to assume you got a high end X470 because you're planning to upgrade to Zen2, sooo
I'd get some 16gb 2666mhz RAM for 15 bucks more
I'd get an EVGA G2 550w since it's a better PSU, you don't need a 750w lol
If you get a new case, aim for one with great airflow, like for something with a front mesh
Arctic F12 PWM if u wanna save money, still quiet
Try to get an i7 2600 if possible! If not, then what ImperiousBattlestar is good too.
Also don't forget that Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge (3xxx) are compatible on the same board if you update the bios. So if you're up for that, I'd recommend doing that
What I'd do:
reminder that userbenchmark is an insanely unreliable and bad website for basing performance metrics and comparisons off of.
No. The rubber outside of the wires will melt at roughly 250 degrees C, over two times the limit at which your PC will force shut down.
The brown color doesn't affect the performance of the cooler. If you don't like the color, you can get one of those 92mm gray Noctua fans, or pretty much any other 92mm PWM fan to replace it with. Just note changing the fan will result in possibly louder noise and worse temps if the fan you chose is bad
good as **** build
if OP needs WiFi: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FW6T36Y/
You will be fine without an optical drive, especially since you're installing Linux via USB drive.
After a quick google search, here are two USB WiFi dongles that'll work fine with Linux
Since it looks like you won't be dual booting on the machine, it'll be as easy as installing Windows
Apple tax. They're only charging that high because of the brand, which they know people will pay for no matter how stupid.
These are the changes I'd make
PCPartPicker Part List
They're not out yet for actual sale, so they can't be added yet.
Neither, both are overpriced and weak for what you're paying for.
The drawbacks of modern PSU's using ribbon-style cables. It sucks. Don't think I've found a ribbon-style cable PSU that has normal straight plugs.
Reminder for OP: both of these coolers, when mounted on AM4, will have the fan facing the top/bottom of the case, instead of the usual front/back

Both yours and his are way a bit much for an i5 9400f still. Great coolers, but a bad pair with a i5 9400f
Your build looks fine. You don't need an aftermarket cooler, but if you want to for the aesthetic and less noise, I'd just get this. Good cooler, yet won't be a waste of money. Good stock cooler replacement. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/3jTmP6/arctic-cooling-cpu-cooler-ucacoap11301bua01
For an i5 9400f on an H310 motherboard, either one is a huge waste of money.
Only if he wants a cooler for the aesthetic, I'd recommend this one, since it's cheap yet a great cooler, as an Intel stock replacement. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/3jTmP6/arctic-cooling-cpu-cooler-ucacoap11301bua01
That looks fine too
Yup, good set, and cheezmeister is right
I would also get a cheap torx screwdriver for the rare occasion if you gotta deal with an OEM system (a size T-15 specifically)
I'd just get a magnetic phillips head screwdriver, a long one at that, and two sizes, normal and small
You can turn it into a keychain / use as a paperweight / turn it into a hand warmer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bw2p-Dmn48U / recycle it for money probably / figure out how to extract the hold
or just throw away
Higher rated yet over spending and under spending in areas, isn't a good idea on a budget yo
30+ dollars going to a case, which isn't even that good in the first place (terrible airflow, choked at the front)
I'd honestly go with my build over the other two since I planned in some great upgradeability in-case you ever need to. Plus, best GPU out of the recommended bunch, two monitors, and the case does not choke the airflow as much as the NZXT S340 does. Only things I have noticed that I don't have in the list, are computer speakers (I don't know if you have any), and no Windows license. If you need those two things (You can use Windows without a license, just it has a watermark and restricts some things) then you can respond saying so.
Good build but, he's still going to be paying 1000 dollars, and will have to wait about a business quarter to get his MIR money back. And for 1000 dollars, having a 70 dollar case and RX 570 is very strange. SSD can be cheaper too (Like the TEAM L5 Lite 3D)
This is a better list I would go with, edited off of this guy's list. Better GPU, PSU, mouse, motherboard (better VRM cooling), and went with a good 2.5" SSD instead to save a bit of budget
