    What fans/CPU cooler, and PSU, should I get for my z490-a / i7-10700 build?

    I recently bought an Asus Prime Z490-a mb and an i7-10700K cpu, 32mb of Crucial Ballistics ram. I intend on getting an RX 5700 XT gpu when the prices are a bit more rational (ideally Sapphire, but maybe MSI or Gigabyte). If prices remain high for a while I may opt for a 5600/5500/580... time...

    PSU question/help

    I'm working on my first Powermac G5 hackintosh project and I'm trying to figure out how can I install a silent PSU in the least invasive way (not cutting [too much?] the top tray or using the native psu case). I'm planning on using an Asus ROG MAXIMUS XI HERO with an M.2 SSD and a Radeon VII...

    Freezes / Sluggishness after GPU swap

    Hey guys, my 980Ti died a couple weeks ago and so I got a Sapphire Radeon VII as a replacement. The card works perfectly under Windows (one random crash so far). I've reinstalled the macOS-partition, did a clean install, and went for the latest 10.14.5 beta 3 to get Radeon VII support. For some...

    Best/Quietest PSU's?

    Hi guys, My PSU recently starting making a loud buzzing noise, and apparently this is common with Corsair - however all of the suggested PSU's on this site are of course manufactured by Corsair. I'd understandably now like to stay away from Corsair, and won't go anywhere near any of their...

    Power Supplies

    Hey Everyone, just wondering... the buyer's guide only recommends corsair power supplies, while I could've maybe saved a few bucks going with EVGA or another brand, I went with the Corsair CS series 650w since that series was recommended on this site. Would say an EVGA bronze (50-60$ cheaper)...

    I need a cheap PSU.

    I need a better PSU for a Gigabyte GTX 1060 Mini 6GB. I currently have the AL-8360BTX 350W. My current PSU doesn't have a 6-pin connector, and is not powerful enough to run the card anyway. I am looking for a 600W PSU (or is that overkill?) that is around the same size as the original ( 5.5" x...

    Help with G5 Case Mod i7-7700K

    PCI-e power adapted to power other things?

    I've done some searching, but all I find are ways of adapting other things to provide PCI-e power to graphics cards when the PSI doesn't have dedicated lines for this. I'm building a Hackintosh that won't need any graphics card because it's doing my home automation, iTunes, Plex and file...

    Can I use RM750x instead of recommended RM650x

    Hi there, Just like I stated in my previous post, I am just following the build stuff for customac pro. I am not a hardware guy so I don't know the significance of PSU especially in that build. In the list only one PSU is listed which is the Corsair 650x. I am thinking the higher voltage is just...
