Custom PC - - FEEDBACK -

Dun­can_Lloyd Can’t seem to find an RX 580 for sale any­where, is there a sup­ply short­age? #sold­out

Ben: There most cer­tainly is a sup­ply short­age, as I ad­dress in my col­umn on p8 this month. The whole world’s stock seems to be have been bought up by cryp­tocur­rency min­ers.

well­ran­dom Just got the new @Cus­tom­PC­Mag & it looks like I’ll se­ri­ously have to re­con­sider my next CPU up­grade. I was look­ing at a Kaby Lake Core i7 but I’d be in­ter­ested to know if read­ers pay any at­ten­tion to the pre-built desk­top ‘sys­tems.’ Surely they build their own? Just me?

Ben: It de­pends on the per­son, re­ally. I didn’t build my very first PCs in the old days; I had pre-built ones, and then learned the ropes by up­grad­ing them and then fi­nally build­ing my own one. Not ev­ery­one, in­clud­ing en­thu­si­asts, has the time, pa­tience and ex­per­tise to build a PC from scratch, and buy­ing a pre-built one gets you a war­ranty if any­thing goes wrong, and some­times a guar­an­teed overclock too.

KevH123 Gotta put my @Cus­tom­PC­Mag Ryzen 7 PC build on hold be­cause the liq­uid cooler doesn’t have the AM4 bracket. Don’t think they men­tioned that.

Ben: I see that you and Antony have worked all this out on Twit­ter now, but for the ben­e­fit of any­one else reading the mag­a­zine, we’d like to clar­ify that the ARC­TIC Liq­uid Freezer 120 doesn’t come with an AM4 adap­tor in the box, but you can get one sent to you by send­ing a copy of your in­voice to ARC­TIC at cs@sup­port.arc­tic.ac
