corsair rm650x vs rm650i

i read that beside the different fan control options the two have different bearings. "X has rifle bearing fan, i has better fluid bearing fan". some say that the "i" with the fluid bearing will work more quietly and last longer. does anyone have some opinion/experience with it? then i read this: ht...

Re: Intel's Z390 chipset

if anyone have some remarks he is welcome to write it. I recently put together a very very similar outfit (STRIX H370 with an 8500, but same RAM, PS, Case, etc). I do think you will want to plan for at least one additional fan for the top-front position in the Define C. In mine I moved both include...

Re: Intel's Z390 chipset

this is what i got today from ASUS after asking them about the differences between rog strix h370-f gaming and TUF H370-PRO GAMING (WI-FI). "Both Motherboards will work based on the fact that you will not be overclocking. The TUF Series Motherboards are built for longevity with the backing of a 5 ye...

Re: Intel's Z390 chipset

from what i read it's kind of the opposite. for several reasons the b360 is a bit lower mobo chip then the h370. in addition, i checked all of the b 360 from asus, gigabyte and msi and none of them doesn't have the whole package i'm looking for. again , i'll have to choose between an integrated wifi...

Re: Intel's Z390 chipset

yes, i understood it from the example CA_Steve gave.

i read in some article that single core working alone is a rare thing in regular usage of a pc.
it says there that even a browser with several tabs open, and an antivirus running in background will cause at list 2 cores working.
is it so?

Re: Intel's Z390 chipset

Turbo doesn't rely on overclocking or overclockable (Z) motherboards. It's a built in feature that automatically sets a core or cores at higher than base frequency as needed by the task being run while staying within the designed power and thermal limits. For example, the i5-8400's base clock is 2....

excuse me for my ignorance but i still don't understand the difference between turbo mode and overclocking. i'll specify. if i'm buying a mobo like h370, that don't have the option for overclocking, and use a cpu with spec. like: base frequency of 3.2 mhz or 3.7, and max turbo freq. of 4.6-4.7, will...

Re: noktua nh-d15s vs nh-u14s

interesting and a bit worrying.
i'm not planning to remove the front cover of the case.
think i don't need it for more airflow.
i'm working now with a totally closed antec p-182, although i have on it an upper fan which i'm not sure i'll add to the fractal design.

Re: poor asus website support

i understand and agree, but still , beside ram which is sufficient, looks to me that other components are very not updated.

the reason you choose the F version is because it's more gaming features?

how is the bios fan speed control? is it convenient to use ?

Re: suggestions for prebuilt desktop

You need Z370 to use the higher RAM speeds as Abula stated. In your other thread, you mentioned no overclocking. Therefore just stick with Intel's native 2666 @ 1.2v on H370. yes, now i know it. the main question was : " there are memory kits in the list that work with 1.35 v and others with 1.2v. ...
