regarding the storage? which 1tb nvme and brand is best for its value in your opinion? hp, crucial, adata, sabrent rocket. i know samsung is top of the list and exp.

If you want I can explain more, but generally speaking SSDs have different types of memory that make up their storage. Each has pros, cons, and a cost of manufacturing. I am personally against using QLC (Quad level cell) NVMe drives for your OS/main boot drive. I prefer recommending TLC (triple level cell) drives.

With that, for 1TB capacities and based on current prices, my recommendations would be Sabrent, Inland, or Team group. See this link here

which is better nvidia or radeon's? 5700 series?

  • 2 months ago
  • 1 point

Raw performance 5700 in the same price class. Ie a 2060 costs the same as 5700 but a 5700 competes more with a 2060 Super.

Driver stability Nvidia.

which would you recommend?

  • 2 months ago
  • 1 point

Because you mentioned you have a 1440p monitor, my heart says RX 5700 XT, but 2070 Super will likely be your best bet. Drivers are a bit more stable and it outperform the 5700 XT a little bit in some games. If you are really trying to max frame rate here at 1440p (144+) go Team Green (Nvidia)

Cooler Master Hyper 212 RGB Black Edition what do you think of this Cooler Master Hyper 212 RGB Black Edition cooler? and for case fans, what are your thoughts on popular Corsair LL120RGB LED (Three Fans With Lighting Node PRO) or the lightning pro?

Let me know, thanks!

  • 2 months ago
  • 1 point

Corsair is premium and therefore ridiculously expensive. Basically good if you want to pay the price.

I am not a CM Hyper 212 black fan. It costs like $35 ish and the Macho SBM can be like $10 more for a lot more cooling capacity. In my original parts list I picked a 5 pack of 120mm RGB fans with the layout being 2x on the front as intake, replacing the 1x on the cooler, and the remaining two on the back and top as exhaust.

Im fairly confident that 5 pack of deepcool fans is the same price or cheaper and a 2 pack of LL fans.

5 pack deep cool + 2 pack of rgb ll?

  • 2 months ago
  • 1 point

Im by no means a RGB expert, I prefer minimal lights myself. You are going to have to control all those lights and organize all those cables. I dont know if the LL 2 pack comes with a controller or not, but if you got both you might have two different control setups

Please put all of your questions here. This thread is a mess.

1) This is a 3700X build. All of them have been 3700X builds.

2) Browsing memes and gaming is fine with a 9700k or a 3700X. Browsing memes, gaming, and streaming is better a 3700X.

Nice list. What do you mean better a? Better on you mean?

  • 2 months ago
  • 1 point

I mean "better with a". A 3700X has 16 threads and 9700k has 8. The 9700k can run them faster but it has the drawbacks we talked about. All this goes to say my vote is 3700X.

Why Trident Z Royal DDR4 3600 CL18, Instead of Trident Z 3600 CL16 ($103) or Trident Z Neo 3600 CL16 ($110) both for less?

  • 2 months ago

iono, so go for CL16? im fairly new this process or finding the optimal parts for builds=/ i apologize =/

  • 2 months ago
  • 1 point

For 3rd gen Ryzen either get

1) A memory kit off of the motherboard QVL on the vendors product support page

2) Buy a kit and manually overclock it

3) By a DDR4 3600 CL16 kit

Just make sure you turn on XMP/DOCP to actually run the ram at that speed

3rd gen ryzen as in cpu? what about intel i7-9700k? oh turn XMP/DOCP, i didnt know about that. Thank you for that or else i would never discover this!

  • 2 months ago

If all you are doing is gaming 9700k is good option. The two drawbacks are its not as good as the 3700X in non gaming tasks and im fairly confident the intel Z390 motherboards will not support the next generation (10th) of processors. With AMD you will at least have the option to upgrade to a 4000 series chip.

I was mostly curious why CL18 for Ryzen when as you pointed out, CL16 is either somewhat to much cheaper.

i dont know wth im doing=/ which one should i go for? can you give me some advice or thoughts on this build i randomly come up with? thx https://pcpartpicker.com/user/yognying59/saved/#view=4vhQqs

Im on board with the CPU, RAM, motherboard, case, mechanical hard drive (HDD), GPU, case, and PSU.

I think you can do better cooling wise unless RGB is life, and I really dont like recommending certain types of SSDs as os/boot drives.

Id suggest one of these SSDs link here
