Getting my PC Component Parts in Malayisa

0

It’s been a great week for me where I decided to build my new video editing PC Desktop.

At first everything seems so smooth where

  • The Intel CPU Broadwell-E processor price drop early June 2017 due to ryzen launch and i9 coming soon

  • Cooler corsair h100i v2 seems plenty of stock
  • Gigabyte GA-X99-Designare EX price drop due to announcement of discontinue
  • Got the wrong color for the RAM and repainted White because lazy to go to trough the process of changing the color and waiting
  • Power supply out of stock for superflower but replace with evga 650w
  • SSD hardisk just not hard to get
  • Graphic Card is the hardest part to get is – see more why

Overall is a hassle to buy part by part to get the best price from different sources and ending up saving 20% from their official selling price felt worth it.

I found that in Malaysia we may not get what we want from only a store. If we have a buying list, we may need to change to other optional choices or purchase every parts from different seller

So i decided to get all the parts from all different seller staring with the important component:

techworldit.com

  • Processor – Intel i7-6850k
  • Motherboard – GA-X99-Designare EX CF

  • RAM – G.Skill 2x8GB 3200Mhz
  • SSD – Samsung 850 EVo 250GB

I sent my list to the seller and he only manage to get the stock above because they only have authorized re-seller from the supplier. The experience was quite smooth where it took 2 working days to get my stock ready to collect my self. Their store may be empty but they have quite a service i may say.

Lelong.com.my (cwchoo85)

  • Power Supply – EVGA 650 G3
  • Cooler – Corsair H100i v2
  • Case – Fractal Design Define R5 (White)

Well they have the cheapest price in Lelong platform but there is some good and bad about this store:

Pros:

  • Cheapest Price in Lelong
  • Good respond before buying
  • delivery time as expected 2-3 Working days

Cons:

  • No respond after payment Made
  • No Store and unable to contact them if they decided to RUN ( but decided to give it a try because they have made a quite transaction in the past) and Netpay available

Lelong.com.my (lingloong)

  • (GPU) Graphic Card – Galax GTX 1060 exoc

I didn’t make online purchase but call to check for stock availability and was a suprise that they still have Graphic Card available and their store is quite pro in my opinion where they also do servicing and upgrade even for water-cooler.

Graphic Card Shortage in Malaysia 

1

After planing to built my own PC for video editing and everything went smooth but until issue happen when I’m looking for a graphic card to complete my build.

Was looking the choices I have in Malaysia market and my top choices was

  • Asus
  • Gigabyte
  • Zotac

But it seems everyone is giving me the same “REASON”

  • “Bitcoin Miner is buying all the GPU”
  • “BitCoin Miner lah, Now Graphic Card Shortage”

so i asked: When the graphic card will restocked?

Answer:

  • October 2017
  • Don’t Know yet

“Argh………. Screw You BitCoin Miners”

At the end I found a store that still have stock with Galax GTX 1060 exoc stock in the market

So I drove 1 hour all the way the store and get it just to complete my hardware and hopefully in the weekend I can complete my build.

After Waiting a while from Kickstarted during 2016, with pledge as low as £35 (eta RM 196.09) early Bird price. With estimation Retail selling price for £80 (eta RM448.2)

Having trouble choosing the Mr.Right Antivirus for yourself?

Well we are facing the same thing also, as a long research and comparison antivirus in the market we manage to filter down to 2 Antivirus which is best available in Malaysia distribution.

Well you may search in Google and ending up back to this two product but we must always give them a fair shots between apple to apple product.

 Bit Defender Total Security 2017Panda Antivirus Pro 2017
Package1 User 1 Year1 User 1 Year
Price from Main SiteRM 109RM 129
Online Discount
RM 79RM 80

*Price May Change last updated May 2017

Conclusion:

We decided to use Bitdefender Total Security 2017 over Panda Antivirus Pro.

Well we think both product meet our needs of protection but when you wanted to purchase multi-user package Bitdefender have the best price.

Some reason from our opinion:-

  • We think that the price for Panda is fluctuate price in Malaysia when we compare every online site that sell the same products, where we believe they are not well maintain by the distributor in Malaysia and afraid of the support they may provide to the end user.
  • Bitdefender price also fluctuated but it seems it have been control where the different is not much, so we believe they know what they are doing.
  • We went to few computer store in Klang Valley and ask for recommendation of antivirus but majority they don’t recommend both of the product because (maybe profit margin is to LOW)
  • Those who recommended Bitdefender over Panda is because of the review floating around the internet and shows satisfying customer
