    Noise is mostly going to be based on the fans you chuck in it and the fan curve if you get any case with decent airflow.
    Bling is subjective :P
    Yeah that and the O11 Dynamic top my list.

    Man I definitely wish I had gone with something like that instead of my Phanteks P400...

    I'm looking to upgrade my PC's RAM from 8GB to 16GB and the recommended builds suggest Crucial Ballistix Sport 2666Mhz 2x8GB. Would there be any disadvantages if I bought two cheaper sticks, like for instance 2xTranscend 8GB Desktop DDR4 2666Mhz ? Am I going to run into any issues with performance or reliability?
    I'm installing them on an ASUS Prime B250M-Plus if that matters.

    Shouldn't have any problems. Obviously I can't guarantee no issues, but that is my guess.

    thinking about buying a new PC in the next few months, for gaming and drawing. This is about the budget I'm willing to spend. Any issues?

    I'd swap

    9700k for 3800x
    z390 for x470/x570
    RAM for DDR4 3600 kit
    PSU for 650w model

    That ^^

    Though i'd probably say B450 if needing to keep budget down, otherwise X570.

    I can't find any mention of "3800x" on the CPU page. Also isn't a larger PSU better for future proofing or are you trying to save me money?

    650W will be oodles, power requirements don't tend to go up as processes get smaller and require less power for more performance. Even with the fastest GPU, you'll have headroom. 750W isn't going to be a bad thing, just not required. 3800X is listed on partpicker, it's just a slightly faster 3700X, both will be solid choices. I wouldn't pay too much more for a 3800X over a 3700X, it's only clock speeds that vary slightly, same core configuration. Probably no noticeable difference.

    ah I see, it only lets you search while you have compatible parts picked (start with motherboard first)

    Could drop PSU to this: https://www.pbtech.co.nz/product/PSU...y--5-year-limi
    GPU to this: https://www.pbtech.co.nz/product/VGA...B-GDDR6-Graphi

    That would save you about $130

    May want to check reviews for GPU, i'm sure it's fine. Depends what resolution and refresh rate you game at too. 1080P 60hz for example will be better suited to a 2070 Super (or potentially lower) for example. More info would help.
