    Windows 10 Fall Creators Update- October 17th

    sorry, but that did not work out either. ( it did not even get past the "update is being prepared" stage) seems like i need to try a clean install. i'm really angry at microsoft right now. ( wish win7 or 8 would work for kaby lake processors, so i could downgrade)

    Mid sized case for quiet air cooling. advice needed.

    Thanks for the suggestions so far. the silencio 352 sure is tempting at the price. I'm considering the fractal design define mini as well. an old AT case which i modded to somewhat BTX back in 2005. Very thick aluminium panels which i lined with noise absorbing mats. I use 3 Sharkoon silent...

    after reading a lot of reviews i'm looking at two choices which could not be more different price and performance wise. 1) make a compromise regarding the display and buy a reasonably priced Acer Travelmate X349 g2 m 53u2 ( and maybe put the savings into repairing the old Samsung to use as...

    Hdplex 250w Hi-Fi PSU, any experience ?

    well, back then i used a pico psu ( the version with the wide input range) in combination with a FSP 19V brick for my dedicated music pc. In the end i never upgraded to the hd-plex unit. replaced it with a auralic aries mini this year. So the dedicated music pc is not in my signature anymore.

    120w Amp for 100w speakers?
