    Loving the be quiet case on its side. That's pretty awesome looking.

    There are nice little internal hubs to buy nowadays too. Very cheap so I would have one of them handy regardless.

    You're better with the Link version anyway. I think you can upgrade it to the LCD version if you want too, which gives you the best of both worlds.

    PCSPECIALIST PC for Music Production. Tips welcome (I'm not an expert)

    First crack at it below. Case is a beauty. The 5000D airflow would be a fine alternative though if you fancied the more traditional shape. Define is also a good option for silence. I don't think you need the power of the 7900 but it's a great chip for productivity with a good single thread...

    No need to go it alone, we'll help suggest some specs where we can. Only the 14900KS part of the build was new, the rest of the platform was very dated. It's a complete minefield though so I can completely sympathise :) We're all volunteers here so we just want to make sure you get the best...

    You most definitely want to cancel that order. We've been running DDR5 for years now, DDR4 is completely obsolete other than the most basic of systems or strictest of budgets. This is such a healthy budget for a top end audio rig. Cancel and do it right, you'll even save some pennies in the...

    Strangely, no issue in the white configurator with the H150i and X670e. You can't get the 6500X case in white yet though.

    I think it's a mistake in all honesty. Any BIOS incompatibility would affect all the Corsair range. Even at that, the BIOS has no impact on how the cooler operates, only the fan information would interact with the BIOS, which is standardised and common across all coolers. The only possible...

    No further forward as yet then.

    PCSPECIALIST New gaming / work PC

    Oh, something that I meant to mention but forgot.... the PSU. It would be worth considering putting some of the savings to the 1200w PSU option. It's an ATX3.0 model and covers any transient spikes. The 1000W RMx should handle everything the 4080 can throw but the 1200w would handle it...

    PCSPECIALIST New gaming / work PC

    For your uses it's worthwhile, you can't ever have too much cooling.... the only limitation is budget. With the Corsair range there isn't a worthwhile price difference from the H100 - H150 range so it's worthwhile opting for the H150 for the aesthetic. It will look stunning inside the 5000X...

    PCSPECIALIST Lockdown - What's Worth a Watch?

    Oh no, that doesn't look good at all. He does look left side dependent, hopefully something temporary. Good on him for getting out there regardless. Found this: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-13498961/martin-lawrence-health-rumors-smith.html

    PCSPECIALIST Lockdown - What's Worth a Watch?

    Hearing really good things about the latest Bad Boys flick. Not seen it yet but going to be running through the other 3 prior to viewing, catch back up on it. Not sure if it's shill reviews or what but literally everything I've seen is positive with the cinematography mentioned regularly.

    PCSPECIALIST For a price of £1200 is this good and are they gonna work well with each other

    Keep in mind that when using the link you'll often see outliers from previous quotes kept in place. One that shows up for me many times the second/3rd drive is occupied where the clicked on link only has one. It's just a gremlin with the system that I've noted over the years. It's a pain but...
