    FS: NIB Asus x570 and ASRock B550 MBs ; MSI GTX-1080

    Hi. Is the x370 Taichi still available? If so, does it come with backplate and original packaging? Any problems with the BIOS v6.61, specifically, do all the parts still work correctly (Sata ports, M2's, usb, PCIE slots, etc)? If all is good, I'll take it.

    Storage oriented case?

    I've been using the Fractal Design Arc Midi for a number of years with 10 drives for storage. The cooling is perfect with updated fans. I think I saw Arc Midi R2's (updated version) for about $85.00 on eBay.

    Stop Calling Everything A "Hack"

    To the linguistically challenged of the world: To the Internet media- not everything needs to be described as "hacked". Try using a dictionary of synonyms. To the Valley Girl wannabes and hipsters of the world- try NOT using the word "like" in every sentence you speak, you dimwits. Try using...

    Has anyone actually damaged components by cleaning dust with an air compressor?

    I've used my air compressor to clean my computer for a couple decades. I don't just use the air straight out of the tank though. I have an inline filter for oil, water and foreign particles, and I don't use more than 40psi@18" or more distance. In other words, I just use common sense.

    New Build - Strange Behaviour

    Sounds like you know what you're doing and have tested appropriately. I bought a Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H awhile back that would do the same thing. No rhyme or reason, just did. I've got 2 other of those boards that I bought and have had no problem with them at all. I guess what I'm saying is...

    Fractal Design

    I put in to get a new USB external ports part for my Arc Midi this last Friday evening. By Monday morning Fractal had issued me a free replacement part without question or cost. Very pleasant emails and quick response to my needs. To me, Fractal Design represents all that other companies...

    Gigabyte Z77 Mobo Sata ports not working, help

    The Sata ports are as follows: Ports 0-5 are the Intel ports with 5 being the M2/Sata port. Ports 6-9 are Marvell ports with 6-7 on one Marvell controller and 8-9 on the other Marvell controller (There are 2 separate Marvell controllers onboard). Port 9 is the eSata port on the backplane. -Did...

    Gigabyte Z77 Mobo Sata ports not working, help

    Good info above from the others. I have the same MB and have no problems. I've read of problems running optical drives on the Marvell ports from others. Also, if you are using the Marvell drivers, uninstall them and use the generic MS/Windows drivers loaded at initial install. I tried the...

    High Res 360 Degree View of SR-71 'Blackbird' Cockpit

    I was with the 9th SRW for five years in the early 70's at Beale. I was an R&R specialist on the SR-71. Traveled the world working on it. At that time, nothing else compared to it. Miserable to work on, but watching it take off and fly was amazing. It set many speed records that have never...

    noob question.... how do I remove tubing from rad?

    Those were fairly popular long ago. I think Asetek used them in some of their kits. Simply unscrew the nut and pull the tubing off. If the nut doesn't come off fairly easy, use some lubricant on it and let it stand overnight, then try to take it off. Good luck

    FCC Demands States Get Out of the Way of Municipal Broadband

    First, if the FCC wasn't aware of this situation before the recent media attention, they need to pull their heads out of whoever's money bag they are in. Next, this is typical of government. After media attention, make noise as though they are just finding out about this, show indignation as...

    Buying new 4TB hard drive. couple of questions

    Ditto on Jeffman's response. Just to clarify, if you plug it into your eSATA port, you'll also need to supply power to the HD. You can't just use the eSATA alone as it won't supply enough power to run the drive.

    Any good HDD deals?

    OK. So open it up gently, take it out of the case and use it as internal drive. I do it all the time. It's the same drive as what you get here: just cheaper. And if it breaks, put it back in the case and warranty it. If...

    SATA connectors vs channels?

    I'm assuming you're talking about the MB in your sig. If so, you have 8 Sata ports on board, 6 by Intel and 2 by Asmedia. As far as I know, there should only be 1 channel per port. As far as changing ports, each time you change drives on ports, each drive is registered on that particular port...

    Would you trust a HD after this kind of shipping?

    That is really bad packaging. What was the seller thinking..... I too quit buying HD's from Newegg at least 6 years ago because of their pathetic packaging, but worse was their attitude on RMAing the bad drives. Well, I found a really great deal on 2 HD's from them lately, and was surprised...

    h100i water cooler-- installed wrong?

    I have the same MB, CPU and cooler. Make sure that you are using the correct parts for the cooler hold down. The backplate is notched to miss 2 screws on the CPU backplate. Are you using all 4 studs that screw into backplate the same length? I don't use any of the supplied washers in the...
