A pre-built might be easier, but I'm also looking to build it with him. He's always been interested and he helped me out a couple of times when I was building my gaming PC. Thanks!

Still as thorough as ever :)

Thanks, vagabond. I'll definitelly look into the Ryzen and making the HDD and SSD a hybrid. I know he won't care what gets saved where. As far as the case, for his needs, the default fans it comes with should be good, right?

You're right! I'll look into it, thanks!

Right around the price of the current part list :)

Thanks for replying!

I haven't even built it yet :) I put it off for a year, but I'm finally getting around to it. Just wanted to know if there's anything better for the purpose of the machine :)

The Scythe definitely wins on clearance.

I made a new thread as the focus kind of shifted and my budget went up.

Feel free to join that one if you have more suggestions :)

Forum Topic "Need Decent Air Cooler to Carry Me For a Few Weeks"

montiago submitter 1 Build 1 point 15 months ago

Got it. I read through my motherboard's manual and it looks like I can use 2 and 4 if necessary.

Considering the fact that I have Corsair Dominator Platinum RAM (55mm), I think it's safe to say I might not be able to use the first RAM slot. I'll compare the Scythe and the Thermalright.

Thanks a ton :)

Forum Topic "Need Decent Air Cooler to Carry Me For a Few Weeks"

montiago submitter 1 Build 1 point 15 months ago

So I just got a bonus (was waiting until payday to rake in the cooler). I can definitely go higher. At that point, is an air cooler with it, or should I go for another liquid baby and pray it doesn't fail on me again?

I can go max $120, but below $100 would be nice :)

And just as I asked someone else in the thread, if I get an air cooler that screws with my first RAM slot, is it a bad thing for me to use channels 2 and 4 when channels 1 and 3 are available?

Forum Topic "Need Decent Air Cooler to Carry Me For a Few Weeks"

montiago submitter 1 Build 1 point 15 months ago

Ooh, yeah I see the issues with the clearance. Correct me if I'm wrong, but is it wrong to start on channels 2 and 4 for RAM sticks if 1 and 3 are available?

Forum Topic "Need Decent Air Cooler to Carry Me For a Few Weeks"

montiago submitter 1 Build 1 point 15 months ago

If that's the one I get, sure! I just got a bonus at work, so I might go a little higher. Not sure yet.

Forum Topic "Need Decent Air Cooler to Carry Me For a Few Weeks"

montiago submitter 1 Build 1 point 15 months ago

Yeah, that's what I was thinking for, then. The Mugen is cheaper too, so i'll pop with it. I appreciate the help, my man

Forum Topic "Need Decent Air Cooler to Carry Me For a Few Weeks"

montiago submitter 1 Build 1 point 15 months ago

The regular h100i or the v2?

Forum Topic "Need Decent Air Cooler to Carry Me For a Few Weeks"

montiago submitter 1 Build 1 point 15 months ago

Yup, you're right about the RAM clearance. I was looking at the Phanteks PH-TC12DX_BK, but I doubt I'd have the clearance on the tall Dominators.

Mugen 5 it is :)

Forum Topic "Anyone play Ghost Recon Online or Ghost Recon Phantoms before Ubisoft shut it down?"

montiago submitter 1 Build 1 point 17 months ago

Nope it's a boots on the ground WW1 game. No devices or whatever.

Assaults run SMGs and shotguns as well as anti tank stuff (AT mines, rocket gun, grenade, etc.) Medics run Semi Automatic Rifles and medic stuff (syringe for reviving dead enemies, and health packs) Supports run LMGs and ammo refills, as well as mortars. Scouts run Sniper Rifles only and stuff like Spot Flares (similar to scan. You should a flare and the radius it covers highlights enemies on the map) and tripwire bombs.

Of course, you have special stuff like tanks, artillery trucks, and bomber planes, but you also have some special classes that you can only get in game. Look up the trench raider, sentry, and flame trooper on YouTube to get what I mean.

Forum Topic "Anyone play Ghost Recon Online or Ghost Recon Phantoms before Ubisoft shut it down?"

montiago submitter 1 Build 1 point 17 months ago

200% agree.

Forum Topic "Anyone play Ghost Recon Online or Ghost Recon Phantoms before Ubisoft shut it down?"

montiago submitter 1 Build 1 point 17 months ago

While the micro-transaction model was crap, I'd say that one could honestly be up there with the top with just good gameplay and skill. Sure having a gun that can one shot an enemy is good, buuut if you know how to play smart, time your moves and attacks, it's easy pz

Forum Topic "Anyone play Ghost Recon Online or Ghost Recon Phantoms before Ubisoft shut it down?"

montiago submitter 1 Build 1 point 17 months ago

Mechanics-wise, it's pretty similar. You have to take bullet physics into mind with BF1, though (ie. leading your shot in the direction your enemy is running to actually time a shot, but it's not that hard once you get the feel), but I get to slide in BF1 and that's all I could ask for hahahaha. It's definitely more casual than BF4, but I'd say it's a pretty nice transition.

Honestly, rook, there's no other game like it. It was too unique. For shooters, I mainly play Battlefield 1 now, but I still reminisce on GRP. It will forever be missed. Hopefully they reboot it and not put it in ******* Ubisoft Singapore haha

Hey, man! Thanks a lot for your input. Could my mixer serve as an amplifier/equalizer for a set of bookshelf speakers?

Forum Topic "Anyone play Ghost Recon Online or Ghost Recon Phantoms before Ubisoft shut it down?"

montiago submitter 1 Build 1 point 17 months ago

Oh, hell yeah man. Everything you just said. The game was very well done. None like it before and possibly none like it ever.

I've got some recorded videos on my Youtube channel (see my profile) if you wanna relive some nostalgia haha.

But that gave was definitely one of a kind. And if you had a fireteam that knew what they were doing, you could execute great pushes and just totally dominate the other team. I definitely understood the p2w aspect, but me and my buddies dispelled that. We rolled into public games with standard gear and weapons and just mowed any and everyone down.
