Intel Setup

Intel i5 10400F

Best value and has significant improvement over i5-9400F with twice the threads.


Most affordable Z series with M.2 wifi Slot. I purchased Intel AX201 card separately.

Samsung 960 EVO 512GB

Initially used for my AMD setup and pricey at the time.

MSI RTX3060Ti Ventus 2X OC 8GB GDDR6

Got the RTX with SRP price in

Corsair Vengeance RGB DDR4 Desktop 2x16GB 3200MHz

Got the Corsair RAM at bargain price in JD.ID.

Seasonic SS-520FL2 Platinum Fanless

Well not many option if you are looking for true silent PSU and Seasonic also a renowned PSU brand and has long warranty.

Silverstone Sugo SG-13

I did some research and Sugo suit my needs for compact ITX case. It's smaller than CM Elite 110 and fits the RTX3060Ti well.

Noctua NH-L9i

I owned the first version of NH-L9i, which has no cutout for better compatibility. I thought I will have issue due this, but turns out it fits with very tiny gap to the board components.
My original fan has stopped working and as you might expect using just the heatsink won't give enough cooling. I then purchased Noctua NF-B9-Redux as replacement. It's thicker, but fits the case just fine.

Delta PFC1212DE 120mm Fan

If you are looking for real cooling fan, look no further than Delta. It's the real deal out there.

Ducky One 2 Midnight TKL Keyboard Red Switch

Bought lightly used one.

A4Tech X7 F4 Mouse

I like A4Tech Mouse, it's budget friendly and has good performance. I had broke one for few years of usage and buy the same type again.

XBOX Wireless Controller

I own both the new USB-C and the MicroUSB one, with the new one has faceted D-pad similar to Elite version.
