    Recs for 64gb 2x32gb RGB ddr4 ram for ITX?

    Probably the same as any other board, unless the height of the sticks could pose an issue. I've had good luck with G.Skill recently. They have plenty of RBG options.

    NCASE m1 Water Cooled Build

    Yeah, I had to order from 8 different places to source all the parts for the loop. Mod My Mods has pre orders up for the Watercool blocks, so I was able to get in on the first shipment of those. They've also been really helpful and responsive over email. I asked about backplates for the...

    I Bought a RTX 3080 Today! It won't buy the card for you, but can open a browser window as soon as it's available.

    NCASE m1 Water Cooled Build

    I discovered Titan Rig when I got too frustrated with Performance PC's website to use them anymore. Now it looks like Performance PC's site is improved, so maybe I'll go there in the future.

    NCASE m1 Water Cooled Build

    &^%$ing Titan Rig took my money for the TX240 radiator, waited two days, then cancelled the order. Seems like they were trying to sell items at a huge markup on eBay that they don't even have. Last time I order from them. Got one on the way from Despite costing $40+ to ship, it's...

    Looking for some good, small, MATX options.

    I agree. Didn't realize this until today, but the v6 version of the NCASE can accommodate some mATX boards.

    What is the Best Cost No Option Small Form Factor Case for a Silent and Small WC Gaming Powerhouse (3090, etc)

    I'm still really happy with my m1 v4. If I was forced to get a new case, I think the T1 would be next in line.

    Woot: 3D Printer SainSmart Ender 3 Pro - $180 and Creality CR-10 V2 $390.

    That looks like a pretty sweet deal. Never had a 3D printer but the idea has been bouncing around in my head for a few years now. Are there any environmental concerns with these things? By that I mean air quality impact. I think I'd set it up in a closet off my bedroom, but not if I'd be...

    NCASE m1 Water Cooled Build

    I might entertain the idea of putting it on a small side-table, but never the floor! Down amongst the power strips and riff raff? I think not.

    NCASE m1 Water Cooled Build

    Whenever I build a computer for a friend, unless they have a strong preference, I always try to steer them toward a larger case so it's easier for me :ROFLMAO: For my own build though, really like the small form factor allowing me to have a small footprint PC on my desk. And when it's your own...

    Official NVIDIA Ampere In-Stock Thread

    Seems to vary. The first one or two drops after launch showed up between 11am - 1pm PST. Last week on Friday they dropped them at 8AM PST.

    NCASE m1 Water Cooled Build

    I got lucky and have an EVGA 3080 XC3 on the way, and I think in a month or two I might take the plunge and water cool my m1. A lot of good info on Optimus Tech's YouTube channel. Much of my build is based on what has been shown to work in his videos. So far I've come up with the following...

    The [H] RTX 3080 owners thread.

    Lucky me, a coworker snagged an EVGA XC3 Ultra he's letting me have at cost. Would have slightly preferred a FE but I'm just happy to get a card. A perk of the EVGA is more waterblock options compared to the FE.

    NCASE M1: a crowdfunded Mini-ITX case (updates in first post)

    Lucky me, a coworker snagged an EVGA 3080 XC Ultra he's letting me have at cost. Looks like I'll need to swap out my 25mm bottom fans for 15mm ones, but it should fit. If I had my druthers I'd have got the FE, but one perk of the EVGA is better waterblock options.
