    Matching PSU with UPS

    I read the sticky thread from 2016 about how PFCs in power supplies can be incompatible with APC's regular range (which are Rs. 10k, 15k types). APC also has confirmed the same. However, there seems to be varying opinions on what is ideal. Spending 40-50k on UPS is not ideal. :) PFC is good for...

    Asus Vs. MSI Vs. Gigabyte Customer service in India?

    Maybe this question has been asked before, but I was unable to find anything, and maybe the latest situation could be different. Of the three, who offers better quality and service in India, specifically, Bangalore? I've heard tales of Gigabyte's ATX board not fitting into the standard case...

    Budget 41-50k Upgrade suggestion

    Budget 41-50k Upgrade suggestion

    In most PCs, GPUs share the highest cost percentage. Wish you had studied a bit about bottlenecks. Your CPU is way too powerful for your 1050ti. In fact, for your CPU to be not bottlenecked, you need something like a 1070ti or even 1080. Check: thebottlenecker.com Especially, if you intend to...

    Your assumption that water cooling might be better is not true. In fact, there are many tests demonstrations (that are available online) that shows that some air coolers are better. Noctua D-15 SE AM4, Cryorig models, and bequiet dark pro are all supposed to perform as good as AIOs or better and...
