    Lian Li cases

    Sam, good to see you're still on the forum . . . I took some time away from upgrading my system and was using my 3930k based system for something like 4-5 years, which was previously unheard of for me when you and I were going through cases like underwear! The Evolv Tempered Glass is a really...

    It may be time, my Klipsch Promedia 5.1 sub has issues for the 5th time...

    LOL awesome story. I still have my Pro Media 5.1's . . . kind of. Much like the OP, I had the sub blow out twice and after the second time, I gave up on them and got some Logitech Z-5500's. The PM's sat in the garage unused for awhile but then I ended up connecting the PM's speakers to my...

    Lian Li cases

    I was a huge Lian Li fan and had many of their cases through the years. It was hard to beat their build quality in previous years but I feel like they've been stagnant and haven't kept up with the times. They would release a bunch of new models every year but a lot of them looked alike and...

    Work involved switching from Rampage V Extreme to Rampage V Edition 10?

    I probably can't explain it any better than one of these two links so I'll just link you to them here: Microsoft tweaks activation rules for the Windows 10 Anniversary Update | ZDNet...

    Work involved switching from Rampage V Extreme to Rampage V Edition 10?

    Thanks for replies, I meant to update this thread. Turns out, it was a piece of cake with the 1607 build on Windows 10. Once you update to 1607, you can sign in with your MS account and it associates the key/acct with the system. After I did that, I swapped out the Rampage V Extreme for the...

    Samsung 850 Pro 1TB SSD only shows 22.4GB capacity???

    The replacement drive works as it should and shows the proper 1TB capacity. The seller is going to return the other drive to Amazon for a refund. It all worked out in the end.

    Work involved switching from Rampage V Extreme to Rampage V Edition 10?

    Hello [H]: I've recently upgraded my system to the specs listed in my signature below (edit: previously was using an Asus Rampage V Extreme X99 board). Got upgraded to Windows 10 prior to the 7/29 deadline for the free upgrade and everything is running perfectly smoothly. I have the...

    Samsung 850 Pro 1TB SSD only shows 22.4GB capacity???

    Wanted to give you guys an update on this. I was all ready set to send the drive back to Samsung for an RMA (they thought maybe the controller was bad) - then the seller got back to me stating that he was out of state on business travel. He said that he wasn't aware of this issue, wouldn't...

    Samsung 850 Pro 1TB SSD only shows 22.4GB capacity???

    Thanks - that was helpful and worth a shot but after following procedure, same results. Already have an RMA set up with Samsung and drive will be going out to them on Monday. We'll see what they find. Thanks all for the replies.

    Samsung 850 Pro 1TB SSD only shows 22.4GB capacity???

    There looks to be two little pentalobe (aka Apple) screws on the back, one of which is exposed and the other covered by the Samsung label. I can easily unscrew the exposed screw but the other looks to be fully covered by the original sticker and untampered with. If the guy did do a swapperoo...

    Samsung 850 Pro 1TB SSD only shows 22.4GB capacity???

    Samsung Magician shows the same thing; it recognizes that it's a Samsung SSD but capacity is still 22.4GB. There are no firmware updates for anything newer than the 840 SSD's on the Samsung site. Secure erase isn't supported on Windows 8 and beyond so I'd have to do a bootable CD/USB stick to...

    Samsung 850 Pro 1TB SSD only shows 22.4GB capacity???

    Hey [H]: I picked up a couple of slightly used Samsung 850 Pro 1TB SSD's recently and one of them only shows a capacity of 22.4GB. The other drive works fine and show the correct capacity - but no matter what I do with the 2nd drive, it only shows up as a 22.4GB drive! I've checked it under...

    Where to go from 3930K @ 4.5GHz?

    Ugh, this is what I was afraid I'd hear ;) I'll have the GTX 980Ti, new SSD's, and H115i later this week. I might just upgrade those components now and hold out for another cycle. RAM can always go back to Amazon as needed. I did find a good deal on a Asus Rampage V Extreme and 5930k combo ...

    Where to go from 3930K @ 4.5GHz?

    Hello [H]: It's been a long time since I've been active here and I know this topic's probably been brought up many times before, but... I used to upgrade my system every year, sometimes a couple of times a year but have been on the 3930K based system in my sig for what seems like forever now...

    Anyone seen a FT02B-WRI (Red/Black, Limited Edition), lately?

    I have a Limited Edition FT02 Red sitting in a box in my garage. Absolutely love the case - but recently moved to a Corsair 540 for shits and giggles. Not sure what I want to do with the trusty FT02 yet.

    Moving from FT02 Red to Corsair 540 Orange

    Thank you. The chair is a Herman Miller Embody. I have a bad back from years of golf and that chair was some of the best money I've ever spent - can sit in it for hours without any discomfort.

    Moving from FT02 Red to Corsair 540 Orange

    Hey Fellow [H]'ers: Haven't posted in awhile because I haven't done much with my computer recently. Used to upgrade almost every component in my system regularly but have been too busy with work and kids to play around much with my computer. The FT02 Limited Edition Red case shown below...

    Dell Dell UP3214Q 32" UltraSharp HD LED Monitor $2600

    Always been an early adopter on most stuff . . . But my three 3008wfp's cost me about $2600 total so I'll just stick with them for a little while longer.

    Dell Refurb U3014 from Dell for $655.90 after Coupon

    Hmmm, my three 3008wfp's have served me really well these last few years. What differences/improvements would I see going to the u3014?

    i7 4770k - $279.99, Combo Deal @ Microcenter

    No, that would be some sort insane deal we'd have to create a whole new sub-forum for since it would way beyond hot.

    Maybe not Threadworthy, but still a Great Deal. Come Inside.

    Wow, both this thread and poster flamed out in glorious fashion! What a train wreck. As someone who likes to handpick "nice" components/specs for my own build, I can see the value in sometimes buying something that may not make sense to others but is just simply something I want (the EVGA Red...

    My Experience w/ XFX DD Black Ed. vs. ASUS DirectCUII 7970's

    LOL - I typically do this with most of my upgrades mainly because once the dust settles, I know that I got the best item(s) for my taste and usage. I don't have stupid money to waste so the key is to always buy as low as you can, do your experimenting and flip the unwanted pieces as quickly as...

    My Experience w/ XFX DD Black Ed. vs. ASUS DirectCUII 7970's

    Valid point . . . I'm comparing the DCII to the XFX DD BE, which does considerably better at stock settings. And it's a 12.5% OC - pretty mild relatively speaking. My next step was to up the voltage on the DCII card but hadn't gotten around to it having spent too much time swapping stuff...

    ASUS 7970 DirectCU II available now

    I have some complaints with the DCII cards too . . . could've/should've posted my experience here in this thread but created a thread of its own here as it also involves a comparison with the XFX Dual Dissipation Black Edition 7970's: http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1683300

    My Experience w/ XFX DD Black Ed. vs. ASUS DirectCUII 7970's

    This is going to be a long post so feel free to skip it if you get bored easily . . . the TLDR summary: BizLink adapters are the devil, XFX DD Black Ed. 7970 is pretty sweet and Asus DirectCU II's are disappointing! Up until a couple of months ago I have 2x MSI 6970 Lightnings in my FT02 Red...

    Post your "rate my cables" here

    Yes, the bottom HDD cage can be removed but I don't really feel the need to. The GPU support bar is kind of braced on the botom part by that cage so not having it there kind of makes it a little more flimsy. Plus they do provide a PSU extender bracket which finishes out the look so that it's...

    Post your "rate my cables" here

    Yeah, it's somewhat unfortunate that the PSU has to stick out like that but at least they included the PSU extender/cover with this case and that you don't have to pay extra for it. With the standard AX1200 cables, I could push the PSU almost all the way in but with the MDPC-X sleeved cables...
