    Asus hidden cable alliance

    Seems easier to just move the 8 pin connectors down to the bottom of the GPU. Almost all of them are longer than a motherboard is wide, so it hangs over and it has a gap because of motherboard height and stand offs just hide the connector there and be done with it. Just about every case would...

    Do they make 3.5" solid state drives?

    Doesn't make any sense for a capacity so small. I was always hoping for a 3.5" with 100TB or so, but the market would be small for it and they keep shrinking these down so fast that they don't need it. I'm sure we will se 16TB M2 drives soon.

    Best Buy new remodeled stores

    The only reason to go to a Best Buy is location and being able to walk out with something instead of waiting for shipping. With them closing stores they are not as convenient. With many items out of stock, there is no longer have a reason to shop there.

    AMD Ryzen 8000 "Granite Ridge" Zen 5 Processor to Max Out at 16 Cores [Rumor]

    Modern cooler for i7 4790

    What HDD for photo storage... a NAS drive? Enterprise drive? 5400rpm drive?

    For me when disk size went up so much, beyond 8tb in a desktop the indexing time of the drive was the issue. Better to get those large drives out to a NAS in RAID. Start up and searches get very slow with big drives local.

    Best UPS for 850 watt power supply?

    Don't buy a new one. Look for one with dead batteries for next to nothing and replace the dead batteries with lithium batteries. They will last years longer and you can get more run time out of the same size battery.
