    Failed coldboot with 7+ SSD/HDDs

    A few years ago I put together a cheap-as-hell Ryzen 1200/Gigabyte AX370 Gaming rig, basically for fileserver and whoever-happens-to-need-it kiosk use. It retained its old case's 750w (or similar) Seasonic PSU which I still have confidence in after much testing, including stress testing fully...

    5820k - X99X - bugged XMP - need help with manual DRAM timings!

    I have an i7-5820k @ 4.2, Asrock X99X Killer, and a 32GB G.Skill 2800 MHz kit. It's rock solid with no BCLK/PCIE OC, cache at 3.3. For years now, I've had the RAM set to JEDEC #1 profile (2133 MHz, 15-15-15-35, 1.2v) and while I know it doesn't matter terribly with this particular chipset, I'd...

    Budget file server build - AM4 board?

    I need to replace my old Q9550 rig. It's been running 24/7/365.25 since 2009 and has become unstable--multiple mysterious restarts per week. I replaced the PSU and tried different GPUs, and also remounted the CPU to ensure there wasn't a hot spot on the spreader thanks to old TIM. I've also...

    Do properly shielded cases still exist? I need one!

    Long ago, it was safe to assume the entirety of a case would be shielded (skeleton and shell). At some point, I stopped thinking about it, and only now did it dawn on me that my plastic and anodized aluminum case is only shielded on the back, bottom panel, and the mainboard tray. This does me no...

    ASRock: Back I/O and front panel speaker outs the same quality?

    I'm drafting a build based around an ASRock X99 board. I'm having a hard time figuring out if the front panel I/O would benefit from the headphone amp of the Purity Sound 2 chip. I would think when the front panel jack is engaged, the rear would be bypassed, but apparently this isn't the...

    Replaced switches in my Razer Imperator, not working

    The left mouse switch in my 2-year-old Imperator was failing, so I ordered a pair of identical OMRON D2FC-F-7N to replace it. I was instead sent a pair of D2F-J01F which is touted on eBay as a "D2FC-F-7N upgrade". I don't know why I expected to actually get what I ordered when I ordered from...

    GTX 460/570/580 - simultaneous audio and 4:4:4 chroma from HDMI port?

    Hello, I currently have an AMD 5850. It's the first time I've used a non-nvidia card since my Voodoo 3. I regret jumping ship :/ My setup requires I output HDMI audio and Full RGB or YCC 4:4:4 video to my receiver and then pass it along to my 4:4:4 display. With my 5850, I can only output...
