    Fried Mobo or PSU?

PC turned back on with no issues, but now problem with 3 out of 7 USB ports are not functioning, seems to provide enough power to light up the mouse but no function. Onboard...

    Console headsets...wtf.

    I don't play console so I'm not familiar with the equipment. I purchased a Turtle Beach Elite Pro as a Christmas gift for a family member...after looking at some reviews I started noticing people mentioning amp/mix-amp. Never knew headsets for consoles are amped up now a days. Will the Turtle...

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

    Is the power button red now instead of blue? If so, I want to switch! I hate blue LEDs. Only like white or red.

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

    Just looked at my 980 Ti Hybrid to see how much room I have left. The 1070 Hybrid is 0.688" wider than the 980 Ti Hybrid, based on my physical measurements, it should fit but the tubing will pretty much pressed against the graphics card. With that much pressure, the side of the case might not...

    Just use the H100 as intake. I'm doing that with my H75 and GPU Hybrid cooler. No exhaust fans, passive positive pressure.

    I think for some reason the WD Red drives have different mounting holes. Trying to figure it out.

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

    It's at the very rear with the sata/power port facing the front. The front is screwed in but the rear is just resting on the rubber dampener. This is a WD Red 8TB drive.

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

    Whoo, just finished assembling my build. Quite a tight fit to fit both Corsair H75 (with both fans push/pull) and EVGA Hybrid cooler. Ran into one small issue, I mounted a 3.5" HDD to the bottom, but was only able to screw it down with two screws. Doesn't seem very secure if I were to transport...

    +1. I went from 16gb 3000mhz to 32gb 2400mhz and didn't notice a speed difference. Nice to have a little bit more headroom with the 32gb.

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

    Sounds like you have it figured out. Just FYI, the fan on my SF600 rarely even has to run, even then, the Corsair H75 fan is louder than it.

    450w may not be sufficient if you're using a 1080 and 5820k. Just with my 980 Ti and 6700k, on full load it ranges from 350-400w.

    Borderland 2...Co-op?

    So after looking on reviews for online multiplayer co-op games, Borderland 2 was highly recommended. Feel like I wasted my $10 since there is literally nobody playing online. Wtf.

    Desk mount recommendation

    Well my desk is only 23" deep. I want the option to push it back when doing production work or pull it forward when gaming.

    Desk mount recommendation

    Picked up a 40" 4K to use as a monitor. Looking to get it to sit as low and far back as possible using a 200 x 200 VESA desk mount. It weights ~19 lbs. Any recommendations? Way too many options out there. Prefer to keep it under $100.

    2015 Samsung 4k TV as a Monitor Set Up Guide

    I was planning on that, but external gpu still isn't fully and officially supported by Intel or Apple. I just went ahead and built a mini itx system instead. Tried to setup up as a hackintosh, but no support for 60hz via HDMI 2.0 from OSX.

    Which Monoprice model is that? Any pictures of the back? Looking for one that will sit the monitor as far back as possible.

    2015 Samsung 4k TV as a Monitor Set Up Guide

    Just returned the 48JU7500 I bought on demo...way too big and surprisingly I didn't care for the curved screen. Picked up the UN40JU7100, loving it so far even though it is only running at 30hz with my retina macbook pro.

    2015 Samsung 4k TV as a Monitor Set Up Guide

    Well my choices were either demo 48JU7500 for $875, new 40JU7500 for $1300, or new 40JU7100 for $725. I wished the 2016 KU-series were actual upgrades instead of stripped down.

    M-Audio AV 40 - replace parts > NEXT?

    See if you can listen to a pair of JBL LSR305, it'll be a 2.0 setup unless you buy a sub on the side. The LSR305 has great mids, IMO, does not need a sub. Depending on the quality of your soundcard, you may need a DAC due to interference.

    2015 Samsung 4k TV as a Monitor Set Up Guide

    Actually brought home a UN48JU7500 today that was on demo, ended up being too big for my use, going to return it for a UN40JU7100. For some reason I didn't care for the curved screen either.

    2016 Curved 4K Monitor

    Unfortunately it looks like Samsung downgraded the 2016 KU lineup compared to the 2015 JU lineup. Prices reflect that. It's really annoying as I'm trying to find the 40" JU7500, cheapest available is $1300 shipped. There are still plenty of 48" JU7500 and it's available as low at $850. The 40"...

    2015 Samsung 4k TV as a Monitor Set Up Guide

    Since the JU7500 is being discontinued. What's the next best curved set in the 40-43" range? Hate to drop $1300 on last years model. If I could find a deal on it for less than $1k then I wouldn't really care.
  35. E

    2015 Samsung 4k TV as a Monitor Set Up Guide

    +1. Been looking at this KU7500. How does it compare to the JU7500? It is priced very well.

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

    Sigh. In a dilemma between the silver or black color. My color theme seems like it is black/white. I really like the silver but I'm thinking it will clash with the theme.

    Help me choose a mechanical keyboard?

    I had a Filco Tenkeyless Cherry MX Blue in the past...ended up selling it and I so regret it. Picked up a Corsair K70 Cherry MX Red...I do not like the Red. Going to be ordering the Corsair K65 Tenkeyless Cherry MX Blue soon.

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

    Thanks! From what I understand, the H75 comes with two fans for push/pull setup. Were you able to fit both fans?

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

    Finishing up on ordering the parts for my build...just need to decide on cpu cooler and fan arrangement. Hoping to get a positive pressure build to help keep dust out. I chose the EVGA 980 Ti Hybrid which is a semi-AIO single radiator cooler. This will definitely be exhaust. I am considering...

    Computer Speaker Selection?

    LSR305 + Schitt Modi DAC. Without the DAC you'll have terrible interference noise. Another choice is the Emotiva 5s, but I have yet to hear them in person and they're a little bit more expensive.
