    Bought myself a Montech Flyer!! Edit: Review Inside

    Nice looking case! Nice find! Based on zooming in on the pics it does indeed look like the PCI covers have screws. I could be wrong, but that's what it looks like. IMHO. Good Luck with the build.

    Best online shops for GPU's?

    Do any of you guys still use At least for shopping and comparisons? I used to use that all the time when I was building rigs for people. I know it's still around though. Nevermind, I just checked it out, and it seems very outdated. Deals can still be found there, but it...

    Having odd Bitlocker Recovery key issues after upgrading GPU.

    Yeah, the case is a bit older, although I bought it new as a deal from Newegg. It's the Thermaltake Element G v2. It only has USB 2.0 on the front panel. I've added a slimline BlueRay/DVDRW/Burner installed into a 5.25" enclosure that lets me mount the drive normally. It brings my USB 3.0 to the...

    Having odd Bitlocker Recovery key issues after upgrading GPU.

    I wanted to upgrade the Video card in the AMD Ryzen 2700X system in my sig. I purchased a MSI GTX 2060 from Vuduz (Thanks Vuduz!) After installation, Win 10 Pro 64-bit is requesting my Bitlocker Recovery key. (Which I have, of course!) Now for the problem. No matter what I do or try, Bitlocker...

    That's what I'm not certain of. If it's a reference design or not. I'm not there to look at it, and I don't recall the exact EVGA model.

    Dany man, I have an EVGA 980Ti back at home in NJ. I'm currently down in FL. I'm not certain if an EVGA 980Ti meets your requirements. Let me know either way. If it does, I probably can't send it until I'm back in NJ for Thanksgiving day. Also let me know what you're offering for it, as I...

    Windows 10 1903 won't sleep when closing the laptop

    Pendragon1, while it might not be in this case, Malware can most definitely cause this type of behavior. Silver

    What do you do with your old SSDs?

    Since I haven't seen anyone else post about this, here's my take. I usually wipe them, and then install them into an external USB or eSATA enclosure for use transferring files, testing alternative OSes, and just general file portability. I had an external SSD before that become a regular thing...

    Stefan83, DTS has nothing whatsoever to do with playing movies from USB drives. You can simply buy any android media box and play any movies from USB connected to the android box, then to TV via HDMI. The more you know. Silver

    Anyone here collect classic/vintage PC games?

    Surprised we're not seeing more Wing Commander boxes in the pics here. I cut my teeth on that entire series. The Matrix game was a fun time too. I have a ton of old stuff boxed up in my basement.

    CCX Overclocking Tool for AMD CPUs Updated With New Features

    Today an overclocking utility for AMD Ryzen CPUs called "Work Tool" has been updated with new features. The tool enables per-CCX overclocking, which is said to enable additional overclocking performance if one CCX is more capable than the other, so the whole CPU doesn't have to run at the speed...

    New Build Inquiry

    If I might be so bold as to make suggestions for a base system, and then you can enlighten us with what you are looking to do with it and we tweak and change accordingly. I'd suggest going with an AMD Ryzen CPU. Depending on your needs and budget, 2nd generation Ryzen CPUs and compatible...

    Will this fit...

    PS; You could also ditch the optical drive, and upgrade his boot drive to a 256GB or better SATA SSD. That would help it boot and run a bit faster. You could then use the existing hard drive for Data only. Good Luck! Silver

    Will this fit...

    IDreaml, Check out this page that lists low power, low profile graphics cards. Since you are already replacing the power supply, I'd think that you can probably make a a GTX1650 work. That will work perfectly for 1080P gaming, or pretty much anything you can throw at it at that resolution. I...

    Kindle to PDF/Word/other converter

    Not a converter, but I swear by Moon Plus Reader on Android for reading any and all formats. The free version is great, but if you wait until he runs a sale, you can upgrade to the "Pro" version for a buck or 3. I receive nothing for endorsing this. Just an awesome underrated product that...
