Here's a link to Der8auer's test of a bunch of X570 VRMs.

The specific board you asked about is in that video and will show you why you probably don't want to get it compared to a similar board from another company.

The TL;DW for the video is that you generally don't want a VRM temp over 105°C. Between 80°C and 105°C is technically "still fine" as he puts it, but why buy something that performs worse than something else for the same price. The MSI MPG X570 Gaming Edge WiFi is consistently at the bottom of the charts in his tests and I don't believe it was ever below 80°C while many boards were below that.


Boards comparable to the one you were looking at are the following:

  1. Gigabyte X570 Aorus Elite WiFi ~$290 CAD right now from Canada Computers
  2. Asus TUF Gaming X570-Plus (WiFi) ~$255-$260 CAD right now across a few places
  3. ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming 4 WiFi ~$250 CAD from Newegg Canada

    The Elite looks to have 1 CPU, 1 Pump, & 2 case fan headers (4 total)

    The TUF looks to have 1 CPU, 1 Pump, & 3 case fan headers (5 total)

    The Phantom looks to have 1 CPU, 1 Pump, & 3 case fan headers (5 total)

    My recommendation would be to pickup the TUF board as it's got a good price and handles cooling the VRMs better than the phantom. The elite is a good board too, but it is more expensive than the TUF.

    If you need a bunch of fan headers for case fans you'd probably wanna just pickup a fan hub instead as their pretty cheap and make cable management way easier. Instead of running 6 cables to your board and trying to hide them all nicely, you can run maybe 3 cable and have the rest go to the hub and all be invisible behind the motherboard tray.

    A decent fan hub can be had for ~$15 CAD like this one from Deepcool that handles 10 fans with 1 cable to the motherboard. It uses 12V Sata power from your power supply to power the whole thing and also is PWM enabled, so you can control the speed of all 10 fans as if they're just a single fan.
u/Pistol-P · 3 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

Are you pushing on the center of the fan where the bearings are to stop the noise? If so, then mounting it on top will give you the same issue if not worse, as the middle part that I assume you're "pushing back into place" would be facing down when exhausting air out the top, so gravity would be working against you. I guess it would still be worth a shot to try it in a different orientation, but I had that issue on one of the NZXT fans that came with my S340 Elite and it needed a replacement.

If you end up needing a replacement I would recommend checking out the Arctic F12/F14 fans if you just want something cheap and don't need dat RGB. They're better than stock Fractal case fans in both airflow and noise, MUCH better than the Coolermaster RGB fans that came on my AIO and if I remember correctly the NZXT fans I had on my S340 Elite were louder than the Fractals.

I was skeptical at first with the low price, but I had used one of the Arctic GPU coolers before and it was top notch, these were no different. There are definitely better performing fans like the Noctua's, but for a rear exhaust fan I don't think it's necessary to splurge. They make quiet, solid fans, and they're pretty much the cheapest out there.

If you do want to get some RGB bling in your case without breaking the bank I would check out the Deepcool RF120's. They cost a little more and noise levels on the Deepcools are close to the F12's, but they do move a little more air, at 56.5CFM vs 53 CFM with the F12's.

Both of these fans can be bought in packs with 4-pin fan splitters/hubs, and have a noise profile that doesn't "stand out" which is the most important thing IMO. Moving air is always going to make some noise but what you want to avoid is fans that have a strange pitch or a distinct buzzing, clicking, whirring etc that stands out.

u/RAGE_THERAPY · 1 pointr/bapcsalescanada

The Corsair LL fans are great fans, but certainly at a premium. The three-pack for $100 is actually a very good price for these fans that have LEDs both in the inner and outer ring. Only thing to keep in mind is that you'll be buying into the Corsair eco-system and having to use their provided RGB controller.

If you just want a basic RGB fan that plugs into your motherboard and are quiet - the best deal out there are the 5-Pack of RF120 fans from Deep Cool at Amazon for $45 (no tax). These are 4-pin PWM fans with 6 LEDs around the inner ring and just require a 12V RGB 4-pin port on your motherboard. They even come with 2 fan hubs, if your motherboard doesn't have enough fan headers.

u/Walkop · 3 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

[Here's a link to the Amazon listing you mentioned.]
( Much better price. Thanks!

I'd like to note a better deal for $/GB, though: The SX 8200 is pretty much an identical drive for a great price- $150/TB. This is the Amazon listing.

I'd like to note this technical info from AnandTech. These two drives use the same controller and similar NAND. They're effectively the same drive, just the SX8200 is much denser for your money.

u/about_face · 2 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

Unless you care about the white fan blades, the P12 version with black blades seem to be better at moving air and quieter. Note that these aren't PWM so they'll run at max speed unless your motherboard supports changing fan speeds via voltage. Arctic fans are great value.

edit: In my opinion you should by the PWM pack, which has fans that can be daisy-chained:

BF will indeed be your best bet indeed since a most of those monitors are models that have been on the market for a couple of years.

This one is a classic pick for a budget 144hz 1440p monitor and often go even lower with Dell promos :

It's a TN panel tho, so it might not be the best depending on the taste of your friend. On that note, I suggest he reads up a bit on the different panel type and try to choose one that fits its needs, therefore limting your potential choices.

As a rule of thumb, TN has better response time, IPS has better colors and VA is a kind of a happy middle of the two but with some problems regarding ghosting in dark scenes (also the only ones that can be curved if I recall right). Keep in mind it's still dependent on the panel the monitor uses, but this gives you a rough idea. Pricewise it's like this TN < VA < IPS

If he's ready to extend his budget, this one would one of the best pick available and might see some discount on BF even tho it's a new model (it has already been discounted in the last couple of weeks for some reason) :

With a $450ish budget I bought an AOC Agon AG271QX. Nowadays not a great value for a 27" 144Hz 1ms TN but I'm pretty happy with it, not sure what the prices are like on these. Might be worth looking out for the 144Hz 1ms IPS panels. LG's recent launch is currently sitting at $699 on Amazon.

u/RedditScourge · 0 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

I'll have to test my Pro's for those things like Harmonic distortion, I have never noticed anything wrong with them.
Maybe I just haven't used a good headset, who knows.

Speaking of good headsets, would this one be a good choice?

Or do you have any recommendations for headphones /headset that are wired and have a similar 'feel' to the Pros (in that it's comfortable and doesn't let outside noise interfere?)

u/ramZn2 · 3 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

This is the most popular one, YMMV on exact overclock, but Id wager that on most Zen2 CPUs and motherboards, this kit could clock 3600CL16 with better subtimings than the MFR kit, but that might depend on DDR4 overclocking skills.

The posted MFR kit is a better idea if you want a painless 3600CL16 for Ryzen without having to manually tweak.

u/grantpalin · 4 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

Any personal experiences with BenQ monitors? I'm looking at the GW2765HT (27", 60Hz, 2560x1440). The BenQ ticks a number of boxes for me, and has good reviews. It's available on for $450 with prime shipping (which I have). Similarly priced at NCIX and Newegg.

My build has a Strix 970 GPU, Xeon 1231 CPU, 16GB RAM, Windows 10. The build is overall fine, I'd just like to move from dual 1920x1080s to a single larger display.

I'd be okay spending around $500 on a bigger and better monitor. With that in mind, does the BenQ look like a good option, or is there a similar alternative I should look at? Or should I be able to pony up more $?

I don't play FPS or competitive games. I do play Starcraft 2, Civ 5, Heroes of Might & Magic 5/6, and other assorted games from Steam and GoG. Would like to try Witcher which I read can be heavy. Outside gaming, I use PhpStorm, Visual Studio, Photoshop/Lightroom, and the typical browser, Office, email, Youtube etc.

Digging deeper into reviews on the BenQ reveals repeat issues with the displayport and display quality. Mybe that's not as great an option as I though. Been taking a look at the ASUS PB278Q which seems comparable, but also seems to have fewer issues in reviews.

u/Lamella · 1 pointr/bapcsalescanada

I've been thinking about getting the BenQ GW2765HT, which is on sale for about 380 now on Amazon, but now I'm wondering if this is a better deal. The BenQ seems to be one of the best 27" IPS monitors in this price range, and even though it's 1440p I still wonder if it's a better choice.

u/korinus161 · 12 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

It was back up, don't know for how long. posted link but it has changed price again already, so removed it. posting here

Managed to place an order before it changed again Store page listed fulfilled by amazon, so no 3rd party shenanigans.

The one I have currently is the BenQ RL2455HM. Lots of people say it's very good and i'd have to agree with them as well. Also its only around 180-200ish dollars.

u/shibaIz · 14 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

Should I buy these or the Crucial Ballistix Sport LT AES kit to pair with a r5 3600? I know this is $30 cheaper but I heard the crucial kit can be overclocked to 3733mhz cl17 or 3600 cl16 which are supposedly the optimal configurations for ryzen 3000. Does the performance gains of the crucial kit justify the $30 price increase?

u/Sundere · 2 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

At this price range, keep an eye out on Acer h257hu, Dell u2515h, and QNIX qx2710.

H257hu is g257hu's big brother with a much better stand and often goes on sale at Staples for $350 where you can usually find a $20 dollar off coupon from or emails promos.

The Dell uses the same panel as the 257hu's and allows VESA mounting. It is sold directly from Dell which sometimes have student discounts and larger rebates from ebates.

The QNIX is a 27" monitor shipped from Korea through eBay that can be overclocked a bit over 60hz. The price varies and is fairly cheap at times.

I'm not familiar with other models, I think the BenQs are pretty good and I can find them at $386 from Amazon.

Edit: I wouldn't trust the $320 from this greened shop seller with 20 ratings, pick amazon.

u/zeohi · 4 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

Looking to sell these - used them for basic gaming for a few months and they work fine, just want to upgrade to 144hz gsync. What price do you guys think wouldn't be ridiculous? I'm hoping something like $275 each. Am I reaching?

u/redmosquitoe · 1 pointr/bapcsalescanada

I've been looking at this one for a bit it seems like a pretty good deal but I'm pretty new to all of this

u/Billeur · 3 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

>All black case fans

On the cheap side, Arctic P12/P14 (10-12$ or 5 for like 35-40$) can do the trick. Otherwise, Fractal Design has good ones in the GP-12/14, (20$) and HF/HP series (closer to 30) are quite nice.

>Any alternatives? Anywhere else I can buy them? Anyone know why the price increase, are they just not going to be selling them anymore and that's just the last stock?

Considering they're in Germany, I'd guess their situation is the same as Cryorig: trade war has affected their ability to sell in North America, and so their products are harder to come by.

E: Amazon seems to have one SilentWings 140 in Warehouse deals for 21-ish $

Any thoughts on this router? Thinking of buying 2 of them. 1 for my 2 bedroom condo and 1 for my small store. Seems to have good reviews and good value for the specs? This one seems to be an extra $18 but I did read it has 512MB flash storage and 128mb ram? So the A10 does not have it? I am somewhat confused. I'd rather get a decent router than save the $20 obviously. Any suggestions?

u/RCShelto · 2 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

I think the normal price for this (Amazon etc.) is more like $430, if you have prime or perfer Amazon that's an option as well. So really it's $50 off.
I've been looking for a reasonably priced 1440p 27" without paying the premium for 144Hz, and it looks like this is the one I will land on.

never personally heard them but based on appearance and specs, as well as reviews, they'll be significantly better than those Klipsch speakers

personally, if I had $100, I'd get Micca MB42s and a Lepy amp

my current setup I purchased used and have had zero issues, so I'd say check Kijiji if you're willing to take a 'risk'

I'm looking for a new monitor(s). I have a budget of $400 + tax.

Games: Witcher 3 / Heroes of the Storm / Occasional single player FPS (Doom/Wolfenstein)

Computer: i7 + 1060

*I don't need games to be on max settings

My first thought is buying the BenQ GW2765HT (27", 1440, IPS, 4ms) from Amazon. Will the 4ms response time bother me?

My second thought is buying something like two BenQ GL2460HM (24", 1080, TN, 2ms)

Thoughts or suggestions? I'm open to other brands as well, not just BenQ.

In adding more ram, the most important detail is your current ram. You want them to be as close a match in performance as possible. If the cas latency, and timings line up, you'd likely be okay. But no guarantee. Compatibility it usually tested in matched sets.

Probably this Pixio PX7 is about as cheap as it gets (you pay somewhat more for IPS vs TN), there's other brands like LG which have IPS, 1440p, 144hz, 27" but cost more too.

EDIT: I think this ASUS monitor is on par with the Pixio and ASUS is the better brand.

You should choose the e-die micron that is found in the Ballistix sport LT, which can easily do 3733mhz CL16 - the absolute performance sweet spot for Ryzen 3xxx, according to AMD themselves.

u/Genie-Make_a_wish · 0 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

u/BlueSwordM · 3 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

No, keep the 850 in your PC, and put in this drive instead:

Better performance and way better durability, so would take this over the A400.

Also, if you have an NVME slot, I would just get a good NVME drive if possible over an 860 Evo/Pro.

Considering you already have an 850 Evo/Pro in your main PC, that means if you don't want additional storage, I would move the 850 to the console, and get yourself a 1-2TB SDD for your main drive. Preferably an NVME SSD for higher sustained performance and lower latencies overall.
