Voltlog #251 – InTheMail

Welcome to a new InTheMail, the series that will touch both your passion for electronics and your bank account at the same time. We’re going to start with this pocket multimeter, it’s the MUSTOOL MT77, let’s get it out of the box. As you can see quite a small form factor, the multimeter is very thin and has this large screen to body ratio, let’s see if they included the batteries and yes the meter turns on, it runs on two CR2032 batteries but it seems they are included. 

Voltlog #199 – New Editing PC With AMD Ryzen 7 2700

Welcome to a new Voltlog, this one is probably the last one on 2018. I would like to start by thanking you for being here with me, accepting the mistakes I often make in my videos but let’s face it, having a completely correct story is no fun, there would be nothing to discuss at the end.

I finally managed to upgrade the Voltlog editing machine. I previously used a dell laptop which had an Intel i5-3340M, it had plenty of ram, an SSD but editing was quite slow, roughly 3 times the length of the output video.

So at the end of this year I decided to build a new editing machine, I immediately found out the best price/performance ratio is with the AMD Ryzen processors.

I had a budget of $700 and I am quite happy with what I got in the end for the money. I started with a Ryzen 2 2700 processor, this is an 8 core processor, 3.2GHz, pretty fast. Not as fast as the 2700x but I had a budget restriction so I settled for the 2700. For the motherboard I went with the MSI B450 Tomahawk, for ram memory I got a Micron 16GB DDR4 PC2400 stick, for storage I went with Samsung Evo 860 1TB SATA SSD and for power supply and case nothing fancy, just something that was available on my local distributor.
