    Fractal Design Define R6 TG vs Phanteks P600S TG

    I think I actually like the minimalist aesthetics of the R6 better, but I feel like the space is better used in the P600S and the mesh that the P600S uses is superior. The P600S is also about $20 cheaper... I can't believe the USB c-type Define R6 (non TG edition) is still going for nearly...

    Fractal Design Define R6 TG vs Phanteks P600S TG

    So does that mean for the price and for what you get, that the P600S is the better option when compared directly to the R6? I can't see to find any direct comparisons.

    Fractal Design Define R6 TG vs Phanteks P600S TG

    I am pretty comfortable with the price- it's actually $150, but I am still comfortable with it. I just wanted to make sure before I pulled the trigger. I actually think that I can get better temps in the P600S than the R6.

    Fractal Design Define R6 TG vs Phanteks P600S TG

    I am revisiting this yet again... honestly I am leading towards the P600S now. I can't find the grey Define R6 (USB Blackout) anywhere under $169.99, but I can get the P600S from Phanteks (in grey) for $140 and they said they would customize it for me and get rid of the TG panel. I can put 3...

    Will this work for airflow and cooling?

    So I actually think I am going to be moving away from this setup- I am going to try my chances with air cooling. The setup will still be in my Fractal Design Define R6, but there will be some differences. I really like the Aerocool DS fans, but the Achilles heel of these fans are that they are...

    Will this work for airflow and cooling?

    You can fit the Kraken X62 in the top... you could even fit a Kraken X72 in the top or a Be Quiet Silent Loop 360mm. I am not sure if you are familiar with Fractal Design's Define R6, but the case isn't very restrictive in terms of airflow. In fact, it actually has very good airflow (and...

    Will this work for airflow and cooling?

    I know that my question was based on unreleased hardware (which has been pointed out a few times), but let's just base this on Zen+ since we can assume that Zen 2 will have similar thermals and needs. So my case is Fractal Design R6- for my listed computer components would two 140mm fans in the...

    Will this work for airflow and cooling?

    Just trying to keep my system cool while also maintaining a certain level of sound.

    Will this work for airflow and cooling?

    I am actually thinking about putting the NZXT Kraken X62 in the front (intake) and then having one of my Aerocool DS 140mm in the rear for exhaust... would this work?

    Will this work for airflow and cooling?

    So later this year I will be upgrading to the Zen 2, I will be using the successor to the MSI B450 (maybe it's B550?) Pro Carbon AC and the successor to the Ryzen 5 2600X. Besides these upgrades, my system components will be the same as they are now. I also have a Sound Blaster ZxR which is not...

    Three Kingdoms: Total War- System Specifications Revealed

    Game looks awesome, but too bad it isn't optimized. Those specs for 60+ FPS at 1080p are a joke...

    Samsung 960 EVO NVMe M.2 vs Samsung 860 EVO

    $20 more? How do you figure that? A Samsung 970 Evo NVME 1TB drive is $247.99 on Amazon. A Samsung 860 Evo is $147.990 that is a hundred dollar difference. The Samsung 970 Evo NVME 2TB variant (according to the Tom's Hardware review) has the best performance... the drive is $547.99 on Amazon...

    Samsung 960 EVO NVMe M.2 vs Samsung 860 EVO

    I just don't think we are there with NVME yet. I spent a lot of money on my NVME which I use as a boot drive, but it wasn't a significant improvement over my Evo SSD. Regular SSDs are still plenty fast and as long as NVME drives are expensive I am going to keep recommending standard SSDs.

    No AMD Radeon "Navi" Before October: Report

    I don't care if Navi isn't a challenger to the RTX 2080ti, I just want a solid card that offers better performance than Vega 64, with less TDP. I don't think that that is a lot to ask...

    Would you Buy RGB Fans?

    Most people who have everything decked out in RGB are probably single- no wife or girlfriend would ever allow that. Within a month of my girlfriend moving in, she asked if I could do something about all of those bright lights coming from my PC (as well as fan noise). True story. RGB and bright...

    Thermalright Le Grand Macho RT and aftermarket fans?

    I actually like this idea... so I guess what I could do is have 2 140mm fans pulling in from the front panel. My GPU will be pushing the heat up and then I will have my Grand Macho RT pull air from the outside... I guess the question is, what do I do with my rear 140mm fan? Also I should have...

    Thermalright Le Grand Macho RT and aftermarket fans?

    Well doesn't the Define 6 have pretty good airflow? The the two 140mm Aerocool DS fans should be pulling in a lot of cool air.

    Thermalright Le Grand Macho RT and aftermarket fans?

    Would such a setup cause a lot of noise? Reason I got a Define 6 was to limit noise.

    Thermalright Le Grand Macho RT and aftermarket fans?

    What case is that? That looks very small. I am going to be working in a Define R6. Anyways, I think I am just going to get the TY-140 (its the same as the TY-147B, but in black). I don't know if I will have room in my case to put a second TY-140 on my Grand Macho, but if I do, will that make...

    They are mostly black and that is what I am going for.

    Thermalright Le Grand Macho RT and aftermarket fans?

    I currently have this beast of a cooler and its hands down one of the best air coolers you can buy. Can you replace the stock fan with something else? I was thinking about replacing it with another fan model (more for aesthetic purposes because I am going for a mostly black w/ red accents...

    Fractal Design Define R6 TG vs Phanteks P600S TG

    So I was picking up an online order from my local Walmart and I they have a new PC gaming section- I couldn't believe my eyes: the Phanteks P600S was on display along with a bunch of Corsair, Logitech and Razer gaming gear. When did Walmart start doing this? I told the sales associate that I was...

    AMD May Offer Some Insights on Upcoming Ryzen 3000 Series at GDC 2019

    You are correct. I think the 16GB to start would be better than and then upgrade to 32GB eventually.
