    Do All Gigabyte Brix Iterations Accept a 2.5" Drive?

    Gigabyte made a few different Brix systems using the exact case and form-factor as seen below. I have seen some of them mentioned as having a 2.5" drive bracket on the underside of the upper part of the case. However, in Gigabyte's documentation for many of the models that use this version of...

    Cheap 43"-50" TVs with Matte/Anti-Glare?

    No high refresh rate needed. It's a multi-use monitor (would need 4:4:4). Seems like a matte VA display between 43"-50" would kill. So many nice, reasonable, high res. TVs, such a shame they all seem to be glossy.

    Smallest Case for 250w On-board Psu; 2 HDDs; No GPU?

    I thought "on-board psu" meant no external power brick, but that might be my mistake. I meant with no external power brick

    Smallest Case for 250w On-board Psu; (2) 2.5" HDDs; No GPU?

    Asked in SFF, & it seems no options exist under ~7L. Am I missing anything out there? I'm not wanting an external power brick.

    Smallest Case for 250w On-board Psu; 2 HDDs; No GPU?

    I need a 250w supply (not sure what else to specify), and 2x 2.5" HDDs. Can anyone recommend something smaller than the (sold out) Geeek A20 (A10 is n.l.a.) that fits my requirements? THANKS

    Smallest Case for 250w On-board Psu; 2 HDDs; No GPU?

    Looking for a small air-cooled solution for a system without discrete graphics. I see there are some ~7L options with on-board PSU (no external power brick), that can fit big GPUs. What's the smallest case I can use to fit my specific requirements? edit: m.2 drives will not be an option. Thanks

    Aftermarket VA Display for Thinkpad?

    I really prefer VA displays for my purposes. I have an older, 11.6" Thinkpad and I'm wondering if there might be a compatible VA display out there I could install. Any pointers (no pun intended)? Thanks

    Budget 250-500 gig SSD Recommendation Needed (not M.2)

    Last time I was in the market, I know the Evo drives had issues with significant performance degradation (while the drive was being raved about elsewhere). Is that still an issue? What are people (in the know) recommending in this category? Looking to spend under $145.

    Good Rec on a Non-Wireless Small Printer/Scanner

    I would prefer a non-wireless setup for certain reasons. Does anyone happen to have a good recommendation? It's a little tough to weed through all the wireless out there now, but looking for a more compact setup that can scan multiple pages and take on small print jobs. TIA

    CM Elite 130 - 3.5" + Front Radiator Support?

    I'm considering using this case with a 120mm radiator, however, I realize the front 3.5" drive mount may need to be given up for water-cooled. Can someone please inform me how much clearance is available for fan(s)/radiator in the front of the case before the 3.5" front location must be given...

    Dell XPS 13 - Mandatory Glossy on i7 Model?

    Looks like it will be a Latitude 5270 for me then. i7 is worth having a little extra heft for my purposes.

    Dell XPS 13 - Mandatory Glossy on i7 Model?

    I thought I found my dream laptop for a minute, but it seems they are only offering up to i5 in their matte, non-touch display this year! Dangit! Is it possible there will be more processor options for this year's model? I believe it was only released fairly recently.

    Samsung Magician 4.5: No More Optimization Scheduler?

    I didn't realize that. Well, considering how many 7 users there are (including myself), and will be for several years, a working scheduler would still be useful for many.

    Samsung Magician 4.5: No More Optimization Scheduler?

    It never worked for me either (in previous versions). C'mon SAMSUNG! Not all of your SSD customers care to perform maintenance manually!

    Samsung Magician 4.5: No More Optimization Scheduler?

    It seems they did away with this feature at some point (I know it was there last year), right? If so, I just can't figure out why they would do that.

    Confused About Stock Over Provisioning on 840 Drives

    I read Samsung's article here: https://www.samsung.com/global/business/semiconductor/minisite/SSD/global/html/about/whitepaper05.html "Users with large SSDs (250GB+) will likely not use all of the available space on their drives as long as they are not storing large amounts of photos...

    Browser Workaround for Youtube Failure to Pre-load?

    Maybe those with very fast connections don't notice the issue, but a quick search on the web reveals that the new scheme is causing many users a lot of frustration. Also, having to go through another site like keepvid ruins the seamless experience that helped make youtube so popular.

    Browser Workaround for Youtube Failure to Pre-load?

    I'm on Firefox, but it seems a lot of browsers are having issues with this and I'm sure most of you have experienced it. Pause a video and it will no longer load in its entirety. The closest thing to a fix is to change to "I have a slow connection..." in settings-->playback. Then...

    [YourNewCase] SUGO ... 5! GO!

    Aside from liquid cooled, what is the best GPU fan design for this case? Wouldn't blower-type be good since more of the heat exits the rear of the case right away?

    Analog or DAC?

    I have a z68 itx MB with a Realtek ALC892 audio chipset. I'm currently running my 2 channel amp via a 3.5mm to rca cable, and I'm wondering if I could gain any quality by instead using a DAC such as the FiiO D3.
