My computer is not switched on 24/7. Last Saturday, when I turn on my
new computer, it causes my Main Circuit Breaker (MCB) to trip. This is the first time I encountered a trip in MCB. Typically, it is the Circuit Breaker inside my house that will be tripped.
Sadly, after that happened, I can no longer switch on my computer. I suspect my Power Supply Unit (PSU) is fried.

Thanks to the
Peak Design Facebook User Group, I came to know that B&H Photo Video had a 24-hour sale on 25th February 2020 for the Peak Design Everyday Sling (5L) at their Deal Zone section. Only the Black and Ash colors are available.
It was an open box deal, which means it is like new with an open box. When I received it, it looks brand new too me, and I can’t tell the difference.

I finally bought a new windows desktop computer after my
Intel Core 2 Quad Q9450 Desktop spoiled two years ago.
The age gap between them is 12 years. Between 2008 and 2020, a lot of things have changed for the better.

Razer Core X Chroma comes with a 0.5m Thunderbolt 3 cable. There is nothing wrong with the length, but the build quality of the cable is questionable.
I tested it with three MacBook Pros and all three experience frequent disconnections from the eGPU. It can be as frequent as once every 30 minutes. It is extremely irritating. Upon Googling, it seems to be a
common problem. Apple Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) Cable (0.8m) – Box Front

Lian Li TU150 doesn’t come with any dust filter at the bottom. As the bottom fan is responsible for the intake of air, it will be dusty.
Benjamin recommended me to get the

For casing, I am looking at
Lian Li TU150 in black. It is a mini-ITX chassis that supports four 120mm fans — two at the bottom, one in front, and one at the back.
Noctua has the best casing fans and hence it is expensive. It cost about US$29.90 (S$42) each. Arctic P12 PWM PST Fan – Box Front
