    I think you have to meet the requirements set in the rules for that sub-forum. https://hardforum.com/threads/fsft-rules-read-before-posting-or-commenting.1891705/ I guess they are a little stricter about who can post there.

    Upgrade An OEM PC With A GTX 1050 Ti

    This finally showed up on Newegg, I'm not seeing it anywhere else yet: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=14-137-081 It's priced at $155, which seems reasonable, given that it's the only card in this class.

    AMD Radeon RX 460 Official Specification Information @ [H]

    So what happened to this: The little ~50W GPU that could supposedly match the GTX 950 at 86W total system power: Instead we get a GPU that match the 950.... at about the same power. I thought the whole purpose was to be as energy efficient as possible and comfortably fit into the <75W...

    3 Polaris GPUs Unveiled

    470 on the left, 460 on the right. The 460 looks like it's begging for a low-profile version.

    New Samsung 4k for everyone.

    Has anyone bit on this? How is Ebay for TV's in general? That's $200 less that what Amazon is offering ($150 less than a week ago...).

    Surface Pro 4

    I'm getting the m3 too. I'm coming from a Surface Pro 2, the original one not the slightly upgraded version. Based on some very quick indirect comparisons (i5 4200 vs i5 5200, i5 5200 vs Broadwell m3, Broadwell m3 vs what Intel says about Skylake m3...) I'm guessing I'll get more or less...

    Surface Pro 4

    Yeah I think I was seeing the student discount. But on the plus side, getting a student discount applied is really easy, just select a school on the education site. I called them up and got them to change my existing order, so that works too.

    Surface Pro 4

    It looks like there is a sale on the Microsoft Store right now on SP4 and the Book (Columbus Day maybe?); it's about $100 off (and up, based on specs) on the SP4, not too bad. If I'm reading their pre-order policy right it sounds like anyone ordering before the sale will get charged the sale price.

    Skylake lower SKU's availability?

    Amazon has the i5 6500, I picked one up a few weeks ago. I saw a few other non-K CPUs there, but I'm not so sure about i3's or any of the low power i5's.

    Lone Industries L2: Dual slot version of L1 anyone?

    I got my white case today, it would have been Wednesday, but the post office came just a little too early... Everything works great. The white coating looks really nice. That little bit of extra vertical and horizontal space makes it a lot easier to squeeze everything in. The top fans are a...

    upgrade question regarding a gtx 750 ti vs gtx 760

    I think that's just at retail, you can still order from the Galaxy store.

    Lone Industries L2: Dual slot version of L1 anyone?

    My backplates are the same as the337's, and it looks like most of those pictured in this thread are too.

    Lone Industries L2: Dual slot version of L1 anyone?

    Even if you only have one back plate you can just use the screw to hold the un-notched side in place. It's not a heavy card so it doesn't take much.

    Lone Industries L2: Dual slot version of L1 anyone?

    As far as I know it's a firmware limitation. Afterburner won't let me set it below 40% (with the hardware control, and low-level access boxes ticked), but maybe there's some other way to get around that.

    Lone Industries L2: Dual slot version of L1 anyone?

    The cooler seems very good so far. The temps never get too high (around 60C) and the fan rarely needs to speed up. I'm running it outside of the case though, it's still in a fairly closed off space, but things might change when it's put inside of a real case. The only problem I have is the...

    Lone Industries L2: Dual slot version of L1 anyone?

    Yeah, that should really be interesting. As long as heat isn't a problem I would imagine flipping the drive bracket around (with the open side facing the front) and attaching it to the PSU to the back would work. Using a GTX 750ti with an i5 was making me nervous, so I switched to an i3, but...

    Lone Industries L2: Dual slot version of L1 anyone?

    My order of preference is 1, 3, 2, 4. With 1 and 3, the narrow slots, being much preferred over 2 and 4. But I agree, I think any of them would work ok.

    Lone Industries L2: Dual slot version of L1 anyone?

    The cutouts above the I/O board look great. And I'm with Saint and Luftij about the slightly wider holes for the side panel. I like how the cutouts on the top and bottom look, but for some reason the slightly smaller holes look better on the side panel (and are probably better for the integrity...

    Lone Industries L2: Dual slot version of L1 anyone?

    All options are for white or black? I think I prefer the original glossy white. I like the unevenness in the texture of it.
  20. D

    Lone Industries L2: Dual slot version of L1 anyone?

    Sounds good to me. I like the gloss, the only way I can really notice that slight unevenness is to shine a light directly on it, so I don't think that's much of an issue.

    Lone Industries L2: Dual slot version of L1 anyone?

    Sounds reasonable, there's already room for SATA cables on the backside, and thinner power cables should fit fine.

    Lone Industries L2: Dual slot version of L1 anyone?

    I think 3 is probably the best option too. I'm guessing that more than two drives in this case is fairly uncommon, though the option for more would certainly be nice.

    Lone Industries L2: Dual slot version of L1 anyone?

    At the time of posting Galaxy has the GTX 750 ti Slim back in stock. Just picked one up, sounds like it will be perfect for the L2.

    Lone Industries L2: Dual slot version of L1 anyone?

    With all of the other components? An SFX PSU is about 65mm high, so even if you could cram one in above the motherboard there would only be about 35mm of space below it to squeeze in the standoffs, MB, and everything else.

    Lone Industries L2: Dual slot version of L1 anyone?

    I prefer the white color. I like aluminum too, but it probably wouldn't make a big difference in the end. I'm fine with paying more to get it sooner.

    Any interest in PicoPSU based Mini-ITX case?

    That's what I was thinking. It seems these review sites are incapable of taking pictures that might actually be helpful, or maybe measuring the card themselves. Hopefully that's the case, as a 3-slot low-profile card would be a terrible idea.

    Any interest in PicoPSU based Mini-ITX case?

    Looking nice, my guess is the size difference wouldn't be easily noticeable unless it's sitting right next to the L1.

    Any interest in PicoPSU based Mini-ITX case?

    Now that's just being defeatist. Though this is, admittedly, not the best solution, but it does work fairly well with a single slot card. That flexPSU is interesting. What's the noise level like? And how long are the cables? It looks like it doesn't have a PCIe power cable, but maybe...

    Any interest in PicoPSU based Mini-ITX case?

    I kind of like that cutout over the mounting tab. I use it to route a SATA cable out to an external drive, but you could also squeeze an internal USB cable out of there if you need more connections. It's not too noticeable unless you're looking at it from directly behind anyway. Also, is there...

    Any interest in PicoPSU based Mini-ITX case?

    Yeah, that's how most low-profile video cards work, at least most that I've seen, although not the HD7750. There is product page up now, well sort-of, it has pictures but seems to be describing one of the full height versions. And it looks like there is a low profile 750, too...

    Any interest in PicoPSU based Mini-ITX case?

    Now I really want a double slot version of this case. Galaxy has a low profile 750 ti with a double height cooler coming out, should be interesting. http://www.guru3d.com/news_story/galaxy_geforce_gtx_750_series_lineup_has_a_low_profile_card.html

    Any interest in PicoPSU based Mini-ITX case?

    I'm definitely in for one at that price. I really like the white, but I'd take black too.

    Any interest in PicoPSU based Mini-ITX case?

    It looks like that might fit in already. It would probably prevent you from installing a drive with the standard bracket, but with so much space in the front you might be able to find another way to squeeze at least one drive in.

    Any interest in PicoPSU based Mini-ITX case?

    I would like to see a two-slot version too, but for now there isn't much to take advantage of it. The 7750 is still about as good as you can get in low-profile. I guess there are some two-slot 650s, but those are in the same range as the 7750. Hopefully the 750 will change that, but we'll...

    Info on Maxwell?

    Really? That to me is the most promising aspect of these new, lower-end cards. Sub 75W GPUs means we might see some low-profile versions of these cards. Something that might finally replace the 7750 in this area, if they can make it single slot.

    Smallest-ever miniITX case with a full-height expansion slot

    It looks like the 7750 might still be the best option here. And that's available in a low-profile version and doesn't require any extra power cables.

    most powerful GPU that doesn't require external power

    I think the 7750 is it. Nothing that AMD released last fall really fits as an upgrade to the 7750, their options are either weaker (and use more power, the r7 250), or use way more power. I don't think nVidia has anything, maybe the 650, but I don't think that's really any more powerful.

    DAN A4-SFX: The smallest gaming case in the world

    I'm wondering if it's possible (or desirable) to more completely separate the GPU from the rest of the case. I'm thinking of a thin aluminum (or maybe some other material) sheet with appropriate cutouts. That would keep air from the two compartments from mixing and maybe help a little with...

    DAN A4-SFX: The smallest gaming case in the world

    Is it possible to get black USB 3 ports? That would really ensure that they don't stand out. The only non-blue ones I've seen are the ones on Macs and the black port on the Surface Pro, but I assume those parts aren't sourced through regular channels. I like the case a lot though. It's an...
