Arctic P12 PWM PST Fan

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.

They say Noctua has the best casing fans and hence it is expensive. It cost about US$29.90 (S$42) each.

G.Skill Trident Z Neo Series 32GB RAM

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.

Asus ROG Strix RX VEGA56 OC Edition 8GB

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.

MSI N460GTX Cylone 768D5

After much hesitation, finally got a new graphics card to replace mine old Leadtek PX9800GX2 1GB DDR3 which gives me BSOD EVERY SINGLE TIME I run any 3D games. This problem occurred just after a year! RMA once, but the problem came back to my RMAed set once my warranty is over! If I just use it normally (Programming/Internet/Work), it will work fine. But these task does not do justice to my Core 2 Quad with 8GB of RAM!

I thought that I am getting an iMac soon and will not need a graphics card, but after thinking for a few weeks, I think that is still a long way! I am guessing the iMac will be refreshed with a new design in September 2011 and that is the time I am going to get it!.

I was invited to Intel exclusive blogger event on Monday, 7th June 2010, at Starhub center which is where the Intel office is. My first impression of the office is that they got tall cubicles!

We are introduced to the latest Intel technology, SSD, Wireless Display, Project “Tangent Bay”, Light Peak, Super Thin Laptops, and Intel’s App Store!
