Regarding moisture, you guys can use small Silica 250GM. Bags for it. Absorbs moist and salty air, one bag lasts approx 2.5 years. My friend showed this to me, he lives in Mumbai and has kept two 500gm. Packets in empty corner.

You guys may use 100gm ones if space is less. Just make sure it does not block fan, and is placed on bottom or taped to the roof properly.

I tried silica bags but didn't worked.
But those silica bags were not new, some from new shoes box, medicine box etc etc. 2.5 years, I didn't checked that.
I will purchase new one this time.
Thank you.

i3 12100 back in stock at ₹11999

Please suggest motherboard with for i3 12100 around 5-6k.
Existing component list is given in 1st post.

Is this price will go down in 2-3 weeks? As product stock increases or market settles.
ASUS Prime H610M-E D4 Intel H610 (LGA 1700) Mic-ATX Motherboard
This seems good, has 2 M.2 slots as well. But in a way, any H610 mobo with 2x RAM slots & 1x M.2 slot will do, See what you can get for cheapest.

Can't predict if prices will fall soon, but usually it does with time.
 
Any new suggestions.
Or I should wait more for Intel 13th gen or upcoming AMD if any?
Nothing new will be at 15k for CPU + mobo. The i3 12100 + H610M at ~17k is still the best bet. It will likely be 2-3k lower in price if i3 13100 launches in Jan, which is rumoured to be just a higher clocked 12100.

Forget anything from AMD. Older R5 4650G + B450 will continue to be their cheap option.

What will your PC be used for? If its just for simple gaming and everyday usage, a simple i3 10100(F) + H510 will work, for under 15k. Sure, you'll get better performance with the i3 12100, but unless you're a hardcore gamer or run some extremely demanding title, you will not much of a difference between both.

From the AMD side, you can get the Ryzen 5 5500 (performance on par with i3 12100) and a B450, but the 5500 lacks an iGPU (which doesn't matter much since you have a dGPU).
