With only a few minor missteps to mar an otherwise perfect execution the Arctic Liquid Freezer II 360 is sure to satisfy not only the overclocking ‘performance is everything’ crowd but also the buyer looking for a great value.

Thanks to its M.2 2280 form-factor the A55 series also appears to be tailor made for NUC’s, older laptops, and similar small form-factor devices.

Arctic Z1 Gen 3 Review

The Z1 was a simple install and setup and works very nicely, the hub is simple but sleek and in all reality, Arctic did a great job.

    I hope everyone enjoyed their Canada Day, and that the weather is treating you well wherever you are at. The site has gone so quiet....
  3. Earlier
  4. Same internal drive is back (should still be a 10TB BarraCuda Pro ST10000DM0004 inside) as the Seagate Backup Plus at $230.19 + taxes until July 2, 2020 https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/seagate-backup-plus-10tb-desktop-external-hard-drive-stel10000400-black/12315363
  5. Just an update. My son purchased this monitor to compliment the computer he built. We know this is not an "A" list monitor but he does not want to (me as well) spend twice as much on the best ones. I will say that when he plays DCS, the 1070ti that is in there now struggles at 3440x1440. He purchased a 1070 from John and it arrived the other day. We will have to install it and see how it does. DCS is a money hole IMO! Free to play but costs a lot to run!
  6. They need to do back into the computer they came from. My son was super excited to get it built and so I borrowed the PSU and GPU from another computer. Once the 1070 and PSU come from John then we will be able to officially finish the build.
  7. Looking good! Whats was he plan for the temporary parts?
  8. It is dark in his room but here it is. It consists of: ASRock B450M PRO4 R5 3600 32GB of Gskill Ripjawz 3600mhz CL16 NZXT H510i Corsair A50 WD SN750 1TB Black EVGA 1000W (Temporarily borrowed from another computer) 1070ti Black (Temporarily borrowed from another computer) 2X Fractal 140mm front intake fans My son and I assembled his grad gift computer and he likes it a lot. A special thank you to John for helping me find the parts needed to complete this build!
  9. Seems like great choices. Sn750 is even better...just costs more.
  10. Thanks for the feedback Bond007! How would the 1TB SN750 compare? That is the one we ordered. I did not read your post till after we ordered. We got the SN750 for 199.99 so it was not too much more money It is sad to hear that B550 will cost more. I agree, I wanted to wait but he would like his puter now hahaha. Concerning RAM we went with this. I know it is not Sammy b die but it will have to do. Also it was on sale. He is considering a monitor, thinking about these two: MSI 34" 3440x1440 100hz LG 32" 2560x1440 144hz What do you think??
  11. Seems like a great parts list. A quality PSU and a used rx580 or gtx 1070, and you are set. Lots of parts have been steadily increasing in cost. Make sure to get 3200-3600mhz ram. For the motherboard I would personally wait to see how b550 motherboards are cost wise after release (so close now). But otherwise the b450 of your choice is fine. For the SSD, the best bang for buck (IMO) is the sn550. I would try to squeeze a 1TB in if you can, since it should be enough to not have to deal with a secondary drive unless there is mass storage, or all games left installed. They are also generally the lowest cost/GB.
  12. Thank you! That would be a great help!! It does seem that right now is a hard time to build. I am seeing B450 boards going out of stock, specifically the ASROCK B450M PRO4. It is my go to mobo it seems. Also B550 around the corner but will be more $. Intel 10600K would be my choice for gaming but it together with Z490 are crazy expensive!! Lastly it seems to me that NVME 1TB and 500GB SSDs are going up in price? Not good.
  13. PSU and GPU's you say we got you fam Also specs above look great
  14. Ok I am back. This thread is now shifting to: "What to get my son for his graduation?" FYI for his 18th bday we ending up getting him a three piece set of suit cases. He really likes his DCS. He is interested in building his own computer. That is right up my ally and so my wife and I are thinking of helping him buy some parts. So far he is thinking: R5 3600 32GB ram (DCS is a ram hog) B450 mobo Fractal Meshify C 500GB SSD video card?? so expensive PSU?? also super costly Do you guys have any other ideas besides some (not all) money/parts for a computer?
  15. Thanks appreciate the kind words, I think we will try our best to do 1 a week older hardware video with the mix of new gear. The older hardware videos get great hits and amazing ROI. I really want to do a FM2+ vs 2020 video soon as well as that above laptop
  16. this is one other way for you to finance your channel ? I really liked the latest budget pc build, the one with the Phenom 2!
  17. Over the years we have been asked countless times for recommendations on making a ‘homebrew’ or ‘DIY’ Network Attached Storage system. For many this was because they were dissatisfied with the ‘performance’ NAS-appliances such as those offered by Qnap, ASUStor, or Synology had to offer. For others it was the asking prices those appliances demand. For others still is was their lack of easy expandability – as you cannot (easily) stick a 5th hard drive in a 4bay NAS appliance. Others still were simply because enthusiasts like to tinker and did not want to buy a pre-packaged, pre-built system… after they had built dozens and dozens of computer systems. The reasons for wanting to make your own NAS really do vary. One common theme though is the ease and sheer luxury of having a secondary backup to push all your data to that is not ‘on the cloud’… and ask anyone involved with the Fappening or countless other data breaches about how secure cloud storage really is. In this article we are going to go over a sample build. Along the way we will go over typical alternatives and solutions that we did not opt for. As we discuss in this article, it is not the be all and end all. No two scenarios will be the same. You may disagree with our personal opinions. These opinions are shaped by our experience, our requirements and since we do have access to a lot of parts ‘for free’ some of our component selections may not be optimal for you. Nothing used in our guide though would be parts we would not recommend to others. As such this article will come with a somewhat limited list of alternatives. As we go through the build we will give you our reasoning why we picked A over B or C, and when B or C may be more optimal for you. We will only talk about serious options. Their benefits and their negatives. Be it software, hardware… or even configuration of the NAS. We will do our level best to show you what questions you should be asking yourself and what would be right for you before you pull the trigger and order any part. At worst you can consider this a good introduction guide on building a NAS that is easily expandable, and upgradable, using parts we would recommend to you if we were talking in person. It will not be the cheapest but with tweaking to better fit your budget and needs is a good safe place to start. So while some may find our selection… odd, we hope you at least find it worthy of reading. Enjoy, and please feel free to comment in the forum. We will always do our best to give you an honest assessment and honest answer to any question(s) you may have. Read the Full Review
  18. Today I am comparing the new HyperX Pudding...Key Caps to the old PBT as well as enjoying my custom HyperX Pudding. A fine keycap with some aggressive font and light transfer, HyperX did a great job with their Pudding Keycaps. HyperX Double Shot PBT Keycaps, Only $24.99, 2 year warranty as well as oil-resistant. They do work with 99%(excluding the spacebar) of mechanical keyboards, making your old keyboard look new and/or adding a great look for any led mechanical keyboard. Watch the video to know more and as always thanks for the views and have an awesome day.

  19. The 4x SSDs are in RAID 0? Phanteks P400S TGE. The red color comes from an AM3+ GIGABYTE motherboard with NVME support and red LED audio separation line while the blue comes from the cooler, a DEEPCOOL GAMMAXX 400 with blue LED. One of the best looking cases I ever had !
  20. Awesome looking rig, thanks for sharing with us and welcome to the forum

  22. Just voted for steam and it went in. Only let me pick one.
  23. Try and vote again just checking if I remove multiple choice it works better
  24. Thanks for the heads up trying to fix that now, rarely use the poll built into the forum haha
  25. @Soullessone21 FYI the vote lets you tick multiple boxes, but it looks like only one goes through. I ticked steam and amazon, but only amazon shows in the results.
