    Cases with multiple USB 3.0 cables - How to connect them all?

    Thanks! Ya, that would of been absolutely perfect, but like you said, impossible to find. Thanks for sharing! Thanks! It didn't even occur to me that I could step down to USB 2.0 internally with the only sacrifice being speed. This is my only option because I plan to use the one and only USB...

    Cases with multiple USB 3.0 cables - How to connect them all?

    Hello, I have the Lian Li PC 011D XL case which comes with (4) USB 3.0 ports on the front panel requiring two USB 3.0 cables to be connected to motherboard headers. My motherboard only has a single USB 3.0 header port. Does such device exist that would allow me to connect both USB3.0 cables up...

    Final PC decision - RAM

    Nice! That is some fast RAM. Despite using the Unify board, I plan to simply throw them in and enable XMP. I like having the option, but normally don't mess with it unless I have a reason to. How are you liking the Z490-E? The Z490-A was my first choice, but I read too many things about that...

    Final PC decision - RAM

    It is my understanding that the MS Z490 Unify board has a daisy-chain RAM topology making 2 sticks much more ideal than 4. Is that not true though? Would I benefit greater from going 8x4 ? I have also seen some things regarding dual-rank, but don't ever see that listed on the kits I am looking...

    Final PC decision - RAM

    I am down to the last part needed to complete my PC build. I am simply wanting to run my thoughts through you guys to make sure I am not missing anything obvious, or to see if there is a much better option I should be considering. After reading / watching many articles / videos, I do believe...

    Which Z490 for meets my needs?

    Thanks man! That Z490-G mATX from Asus has nothing but high praise. I was seriously considering it but needed (wanted) more M.2 ports. Sounds like either board will do the trick and the VRM should be good. May just come to which is cheaper.

    Which Z490 for meets my needs?

    Hello, I am in the process of purchasing the last few parts for a new build. Like a lot of people, I can't find a 5900x on sale anywhere, so I am going to roll with the 10900k instead. I am one of those people who won't use all the power in most cases, but enjoying building a PC every few...

    Which PSU for a new build?

    Thank you both, great info. Seasonic Prime Plat 1000 would be great, but not seeing it in stock until ~ Feb 2021 Edit: I currently use the Corsair RM850x and before that another Corsair RMx product. Both PSU's were perfect for my needs and I never had issues. Given this, I chose to stay with...

    Which PSU for a new build?

    Hi, I am seeing some PSU recommendations for a new build. I will be using an RTX 3090 with a 10900K CPU in this build. Most online calcs / review state that an 850w PSU should be enough, but I rather throw a 1000w at it to be safe and avoid potential issues. With prices all over the chart now...

    Corsair K70 LUX RGB Vs. G.Skill KM780

    Thanks! I agree, the two things holding me back from the G.Skill are the way it looks compared to the K70, and the volume roller. I prefer the smooth roll and surface of the volume roller on the K70 along with the sleep looks. On the other hand, the G.Skill is ~$20 cheaper, has audio connections...

    Corsair K70 LUX RGB Vs. G.Skill KM780

    Hello, I need help finalizing on a keyboard decision between the Corsair K70 RGB LUX and the G.Skill KM780. Does one really beat the other? Has Corsair fixed the QUE software so that it is now manageable? I like the Mic/Headphone inclusion on the G.Skill, but like the Media controls better on...

    Which pair of sticks are the better choice?

    Thanks for the advice. I am looking at F4-3200C16D-16GTZ Reviews also all said XMP worked fine and no mention of people having to up the power to them to get it to work. Thanks. I think those may be the ones I go with.

    Which pair of sticks are the better choice?

    Hello, I am working on a new 6700k build and both of the below set of sticks are on my motherboards supported list. Which are better? Timing vs Hz? G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series DDR4 3200 Model F4-3200C16D-16GVK Timing 16-16-16-36 G.SKILL TridentZ Series DDR4 3000 Model F4-3000C15D-16GTZ Timing...
