    Looking for a high end ATX case.

    Also, for anyone coming from an older case (not last 5 years,) like I was, and is concerned about these newer cases being junk because of lower price, don’t worry, they are solid.

    Looking for a high end ATX case.

    So update, I went ahead and built in the Evolv X. Loved the looks of the case, and figured I’d brute force any perceived airflow inadequacies. This was my first Phanteks case, and I was actually pleasantly surprised with how solid the case is. Aside from the goofy plastic cable hiders, there...

    Looking for a high end ATX case.

    Well you may have just made my decision then. The mesh cases seem to be all the rage right now, but my big fear is that they'd be cheapish feeling. You have confirmed that concern for me, thanks!

    Looking for a high end ATX case.

    Let’s say I change cooler to an AIO or just a different cooler, is there a case that would more so fit what I’m looking for?

    Looking for a high end ATX case.

    So is there truly nothing in larger cases that approaches M1 build quality? I’m glad you mentioned the 500A because it is another one I have really been mulling over, I just like the look of the Evolv so much more.

    Looking for a high end ATX case.

    Unfortunately my M1 build was a couple builds ago, and I no longer have the PSU. I have been unimpressed by the build quality of my previous 2 cases (Cooler Master/Corsair,) and I was hoping to just find something closer to that near perfectness of the M1 in a larger form factor. I was sort of...

    Looking for a high end ATX case.

    The last case with fantastic quality I built in was the NCase M1, and I'd love to do another build in one, but I'm not really wanting to go super tiny this time around. So basically, what ATX cases are in the same ballpark build quality-wise as the M1. I'll be running everything on air unless...

    Is 10gb VRAM really enough for 1440p?

    Dang, my nearest micro center is 6hrs away, but I’d kill for a reference 3080 right now. Give me a month, and I’ll be willing to wait for 40xx/30xxti though.

    Kimera Industries Cerberus: The 18L, mATX, USA-made enclosure

    heck if they just offered custom handle colors it would be pretty awesome

    Kimera Industries Cerberus: The 18L, mATX, USA-made enclosure

    I think the mockup blue case is pretty sick looking TBH. Also could go for a red case with black handle or vice versa.

    Kimera Industries Cerberus: The 18L, mATX, USA-made enclosure

    Just finished building my M1, and holy crap was that difficult. Is this case going to be a little easier to work in? I love the M1, but the pictures don't do it justice on how tiny it actually is.

    Kimera Industries Cerberus: The 18L, mATX, USA-made enclosure

    So my M1 came in today, and I can't wait to do the build, but this is the build I am really looking forward to. I can't wait to back this.

    I bought all static pressure fans, should I have at least one airflow for an exhaust? The ones I bought are the corsair sp 120s.

    Anyone Else Left Steam and Moved to GOG ?

    This, I have never seen steam take up much resources at all, I'm talking in the sub 5% range.

    Anyone Else Left Steam and Moved to GOG ?

    Why would I leave Steam? Steam is perfect for what it does. I don't see a reason to pick one or the other because they are two separate platforms dealing with two separate audiences. I have been a GOG user for a LONG time, and have every classic game I could want on there, heck I even...

    Microsoft: There Is Familiarity In Windows 10

    For me it wasn't the absence of a start menu that ruined Windows 8, but the way that programs made for W8 ran almost in a completely separate instance. No task bars was pretty terrible on those programs as well.

    EVGA GTX 980 - $236.54 for Price Matching ONLY

    I did it when the ad was still searchable. If it shows up on a website, and you can pull it up in-person on a computer, then I say it's no big deal. The thing my conscience couldn't do would be to take the saved PDF version of a webpage in that has disappeared from the internet, and try to price...

    White House Unveils ConnectHome For Low-Income Households

    It sure did. I live right smack in the middle of it, was raised on a cotton farm that my great grandparents bought prior to the dustbowl. As far as comparing the great depression and dustbowl to what I argued, it doesn't match up. There were no places to go back then, only false opportunity...

    Have you guys emailed support? I would think you should have it by now. Hopefully if order got misplaced they ordered some extras for stateside that they could ship to you.

    White House Unveils ConnectHome For Low-Income Households

    How about we get broadband to rural America at reasonable prices before we start handing out the cheap internet free to the low income? I pay 100 a month for 3mb, and it ain't changing anytime soon. The people this benefits can typically get ~10-20mb for less than half what I pay for 3.

    Online Cheating Site Hacked

    I wish they'd just hack it and release it, but by playing the blackmail card they throw out any semblence of doing something for the good of the world. I'm sure there are plenty of very wealthy people on this list that would be willing to pay big money to suppress it though.
