Tenda Nova MW3 Mesh WiFi System Review and Setup Guide

One of the most overlooked aspect of a home office workspace is the quality of the internet coverage across all corners of the space, I know because for the longest time we’ve been using just the default modem-router of our chosen ISP.

So today, we’re taking a look at a budget mesh WiFi system in the form of the Tenda Nova MW3. MY EARLY BREAKDOWN Pros: Affordable, Easy to set…

How to Replace Case Fans LED – No RGB!

I recently did a side project on my YouTube Channel and I figured, why not share that here on my blog as well for some of you that might have missed it.

Ryzen 5 2600X Build with Nvidia 9500GT – ShopzadaPH PC Build 2018

Do you think pairing an old Nvidia 9500GT with a brand new AMD Ryzen 5 2600x is a good idea? Yeah, I don’t think so as well.

These are some of the questions that lingered in my mind when I was planning for this build. I don’t have a ton of budget and I…

How to Recycle your Old Netbook Hard Drive

Netbooks were very popular back when it started in 2007 before powerful smartphones, tablets and Chromebooks became a thing.

The netbook era started to crumble and fall apart, and the emergence of more convenient and more powerful mobile devices didn’t help its cause. Fast forward to today, many of…

My New YouTube Setup – Late 2017 – Shopzadaph.com

But for my purpose now…
