I've never owned an AsRock product before, but I have a B660M Steel Legend arriving today for a new rig I'm building (first one in over a decade, /gasp).
So I figured I'd download all the drivers I'm going to be installing, but I find their descriptions on the download/support page to be quite...
I'm about to do exactly the same mods as you've done, in my 932. I just can't justify spending $100 on a new case for my upgrade, when all I really need it for is the front USB 3.2 ports...
Kudos to you for re-using. I'm gonna do the same.
Unfortunately, I'm having trouble finding a 5.25" USB...
I'm in the market for a 28-32" 4K monitor and was just curious if it would be wise to wait until Black Friday season to see if any of the monitors I'm eyeballing will get a discount.
Are there particular brands that tend to run BF/CM sales? I'm currently looking at specific models of GIgabyte...
I'm about to do exactly this to mod my 11 year old HAF 932 to fit my new 6900XT (333mm).
Can you link me to the front panel dock you're referring to? I'd love to ass something like this to mine as well.
Thanks, that's pretty much how I was taking the "recommended Watts" too. It's like the expiration date on your milk.
I think I'm going to pick a quality 850W off this list: https://cultists.network/140/psu-tier-list/
I've seen multiple completed builds on PCPP, of people running 750/850W PSU's with similar CPU's and a 6900XT, so I really don't think 1000W is needed. I will compare pricing to see if I think the extra cost of a 1000W is worth it.
Ok, so here is my new rig: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/NorseKnight/saved/VprLcf
Although, I think I might have to return the 650W PSU and get something with more juice.....the PCPP build says the system will draw 511W, but the ASRock website recommends 900 for the GPU itself, lol.
I'm sorry but I find your advice to be terrible.
Paying up for a 1000+ watt PSU when my system will draw maybe 550 at any given time is just a flat waste of money.
So is buying a "better" CPU because it has more cores. Cores are for multi-threading. I'm not using my PC for compiling code, or...
Yeah I'm still trying to add the keyboard to my cart and it won't let me.
Only have the option to "Auto-Notify".
I have the mouse in cart, just need the keyboard so I can mash the checkout button...

Damn I'm too slow, it's dead.
Was gonna order one for my new rig I'm building this fall. Mostly waiting for black friday/cyber monday deals. But I'll grab parts between now and then if it's a good deal.
