Hadi Yahya Lab Hardware Choice

Behind the Hadi Yahya Lab, there is hardware that handles all the lab demands. Nov 2020 I do a tech refresh on my lab. There are few changes on the Processor, Motherboard, and RAM. The rest hardware still remains the same.

Here the Nov 2020 Hardware List:

  1. Processor – Intel Core i7 10700K
  2. Processor Cooler – Noctua NH-U12A
  3. Motherboard – ASUS TUF B460M-PLUS
