    Hello fellow gurus!
    Black Friday is upon us, so a thread where to discuss what deals are found should help us all.
    I want a deal on this TV TCL 55P607 -best 4k TV on a budget.
    Any HDD starting from 3 TB or more..or any SSD.Storage is never enough for me, the benefit of having tons of pictures and countless backups.
    Wish some Raven Ridge ITX boards...
    Well, what deals you know or what do you gurus want for this Black Friday?

    Well as Black Firday is not that much of a thing here (Austria), the only shop that features it are steam, and amazon.
    Basically I'm thinking about grabbing a PCIe SSD for the kicks of it, and maybe upgrade to a rapid switch mechanical keyboard (as well as getting a backup copy of my Logitech502).

    Black friday exists here in aus but not the same degree.

    I guess you could say it came early for me as I bought a samsung 960 pro 2TB which arrived toda and corsair rgb 4x8 32gb 3600c18 ram kit which should arrive next week.

    I need a new case with tempered glass (like the Dark Base 700), preferably white.
    And perhaps also a 500-750GB SSD to replace the smaller ones I have.

    An excuse to spend money?
    I’d get a nice pair of headphones. HD660s would be nice.

    Thinking of getting another Ti for rendering, friend have one for sale and thinking getting this card, another friend have 6950x for sale but these two parts are used which I shouldn't classify as "Black Friday"

    Other parts, I'm very happy what have right now, bought recently Caselabs M8 with pedestal and running 4*360mm radiators and this should be enough for time being

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    I've put the thread in the general hardware section because I didn't really know where to put it.Now, the BlackFriday isn't limited to only hardware parts...

    I’m looking for some more SSD space. I got 2 1TB 850 Evos last Black Friday for $250 a piece and I’m expecting them to be even cheaper this year since their base price has dropped. Also hoping the Beats X Bluetooth headphones go on sale. My current pair of I can’t even remember what brand are trash and I need a good pair for my iPhone 8. I was thinking about getting a 1080ti on sale but think I’m just going to wait for 1180/2080 since they’ll likely be more comfortably in 4K range.

    Last year was a good Black Friday for me. I built my computer and must have saved a good $500 total on all the parts I bought.

    Consider V-moda crossfade wireless as an alternative.

    Going to future proof my PC by replacing my Geforce 1060 with a 1070 TI hopefully sometime this week or next Monday's deal. Will replace my i7 6700k for the 8700k early next year with tax return.

    Found the FSP CMT510 case for just 80€.
    Seems to have everything but isn't reviewed anywhere.
    Anyone knows anything about it?

    Hi there

    You can check this quick review



    Personally I wouldn't choose this case, there are few cases for money which you can choose or get

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    50% off Krugerrands :D

    I actually found some for sale on Amazon once, they turned out not legit.
    Bummer.

    Hi.

    I did see that video and he praised most things except the airflow so I finally just got a Corsair Crystal 570X with two extra fans for 160€.

    Hi there

    Problem with these cases which do have Tempered glass is airflow and due this I'm not very fond on them or I would choose them,have look on few reviews of the cases which do have front glass panel etc and you will see what I mean...For such price i would go with Phanteks Pro M TG as this case do offer proper front to back airflow etc
    You will see how you get on there and good luck

    Thanks,Jura
