You barely have any comments and no completed builds.

Um he is way smarter than you and knows much more than you.

You are talking to one of the smartest guys on PCPP. IIRC, he has the most comments on the site with over 29,000.

BalloonMatrix 1 point 7 hours ago

Do you really need an SSD of that caliber? A cheaper one would be this. Otherwise, looks phenomenal. Good luck building! :D

What do you mean me in China, beware? The RX 480 is a better choice than the GTX 1060.

Forum Topic "Any help which one to build???"

BalloonMatrix 1 point 14 hours ago

The RX 480 4GB outperforms the GTX 1060 3GB.

Don't get Arctic Silver 5. Get the Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut.

Forum Topic "Recommendations for Upgrade of Current Build"

I would recommend this CPU Cooler as it will give you CPU a great overclock.

Why do you want to upgrade?

BalloonMatrix 1 point 20 hours ago

I honestly don't know the difference between the IronWolfs and the Barracudas, but 120mm AIOs aren't good deals. You would be better off with an HSF.

I got a much better CPU Cooler that will give 5.0GHz if you win the silicon lottery. I got less overpriced RAM/16GB. I got less overpriced HDDs.

Forum Topic "Hobby/NAS/OC experiment, should I bother?"

The HDDs are super overpriced.

I chose cheaper but faster RAM. I chose a less overpriced SSD. I chose a better case. I chose a better PSU.

Forum Topic "Is this a good mid-high end gaming build?"

BalloonMatrix 1 point 7 days ago

No.

Forum Topic "Is this a good mid-high end gaming build?"

BalloonMatrix 1 point 7 days ago

I would get the CRYORIG M9i. For the SSD I would get the PNY CS2211 240GB. AMD updates I think the drivers of the RX 480 so the Card now outperforms the GTX 1060.

Forum Topic "Is this a good mid-high end gaming build?"

BalloonMatrix 2 points 7 days ago

The H7 is overkill, he SSD is overpriced, and the RX 480 is better.

Forum Topic "g3950 or g4400?"

BalloonMatrix 2 points 7 days ago

The Pentium G4560.

Forum Topic "My First Gaming Build- Would love to hear your opinions!"

BalloonMatrix 1 point 7 days ago

This SSD is less overpriced and will have similar real world performance. This PSU is better.

Forum Topic "My First Gaming Build- Would love to hear your opinions!"

BalloonMatrix 1 point 7 days ago

The SSD is overpriced, a GTX 1070 is overkill for 1080p 60Hz, and the PSU is mediocre.

Better.

Yeah so you could save money on the Motherboard if you don't want to do a custom loop.

Doesn't the FORMULA come with an EK water block?

Forum Topic "Oh oh... Does my Mobo support displayport i bought a high quality display port and I dont think I can even plug it into my mother board."

BalloonMatrix 1 point 8 days ago

Ok since you haven't got the SSD, change it to the PNY CS2211 240GB. The price on the MX300 changed, so it is more expensive than the PNY, but performs worse.

Forum Topic "Help with shipping from overseas"

BalloonMatrix 1 point 8 days ago

Yes, I don't see why the PSU won't work.

Forum Topic "Oh oh... Does my Mobo support displayport i bought a high quality display port and I dont think I can even plug it into my mother board."

BalloonMatrix 1 point 8 days ago

Why does everything have a custom price except the monitor, SSD, and CPU. Is that because you already got them?
