If you are doing renovations in Singapore, most electricians will default to MK Electric by Honeywell for switches and sockets. They are value for money, but they could look better.
So if you want to change them, it has to be from your pocket, and they will not give you a discount for using your switches and sockets.
I posted about Synology DDR4 RAM last June, and at that time, there were only five types of Synology DDR4 RAM available, out of which only there is only one ECC SO-DIMM which is the D4ECSO-2666-16G.
With the launch of the Synology 21 series, Synology added two more ECC SO-DIMM to their range of Synology DDR4 RAM. There are the D4ES01-4G and D4ES01-8G.
QNAP TS-453D comes with only 4GB of RAM, and if you are going to do RAM intensive tasks like using Containers or Virtual Machines, you will definitely need to upgrade the RAM.
I bought the Crucial 8GB DDR4 2666 MT/s (PC4-21300) SODIMM 260-Pin Memory (CT8G4SFRA266) from Amazon.sg during Black Friday as they are having a sale. I got it for S$31.08 with free shipping to Singapore as my total order is over S$60 and I am an Amazon.sg Prime member.
Synology DDR4 RAM has been available in the market for a few years now and it is mainly targeted at businesses.
But with the release of the Synology DiskStation DS20 Plus series for consumers, you can finally get the DDR4 RAM to go along with your new shiny DS920+, DS720+, DS420+, or DS220+.
The 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 DEMCiflex Dust Filter ST30 Double 120mm from Amazon.
For casing, I am looking at Lian Li TU150 in black. It is a mini-ITX chassis that supports four 120mm fans â two at the bottom, one in front, and one at the back.
They say Noctua has the best casing fans and hence it is expensive. It cost about US$29.90 (S$42) each.
Benjamin recommended me to go with AMD instead of Intel. So I will be getting the AMD Ryzen R-3700X.
For RAM, Benjamin recommended the G.Skill Trident Z Neo Series 32GB. It is a PC4-28800, 3,600 MHz, 288 pins RAM with a CAS Latency of CL16 (16-19-19-39) at 1.35V.
Razer announces the Razer Core X Chroma on the 16th April 2019. It is a minor upgrade from the Razer Core X which retails for S$449.90 in Singapore and it is frequently out of stock.
Razer Core X Chroma retails for S$599, making it S$150 more expensive than the Razer Core X.
Thanks to Melvin for the heads up. I managed to get quite a good deal for the Asus ROG Strix RX VEGA56 OC Edition 8GB (ROG-STRIX-RXVEGA56-O8G-GAMING) on Lazada.
I got it for S$499 which is a massive discount from the usual price of S$1,179. At first, I was wondering whether it is a fake since the discount seems absurd.
In case you missed my Synology DDR3 RAM post, I will be upgrading my DS216+ to DS918+ in the coming weeks.
DS918+ is Synology’s flagship 4-bay NAS for prosumers. It supports up to two M.2 NVMe SSDs for fast system cache creation.
