    How long till we see new X370 releases?

    I wasn't paying attention to the MB release times for the Z270, it seems like they had all of these boards out a month or two after release. So when do you think we'll start seeing the next iteration of X370 boards with better prices? I'd like to get something similar to the ASUS TUF series...

    Sub Amp issue

    Hello all, I've been working on this for hours, no idea how I messed this up or why it isn't working. I've been involved with a DIY sub project for a few weeks, mainly due to the long shipping time to get my UM18 out here. I'm doing a wire test before I put everything into the box I built...

    Bookshelf pair recommendations $50'ish

    Been looking for a cheap pair, non powered for a little project, may be moved to my PC later. Had my eye on the $40 pair of Daytons at parts express. Anyone have a recommendation for a better pair? Going to hook them up to a small amp either my 10 watt or 20 watt. Thanks!

    Power Amp question

    First off my Amp right now can supply 80 watts RMS per channel just fine, I figured I'm usually pushing mid 40's with no distortion. But now I have a pair of Klipsch RP-280F's coming in, which are very efficient and with my current room will have no issue being powered with what I have. But I...

    Avoton platform upgrade

    Did Intel plan to refresh or upgrade the Avoton platform? I want to upgrade my plex machine and the Avoton offers some great flexibility without killing the bank. I'm not opposed to getting a Xeon D platform but that is much more expensive.

    Upgrading NAS/Plex/DB server

    My server is running many services for me, none of which are super demanding except for Plex (which almost never sees 2 steams let alone 3). I've been thinking of upgrading but I've been finicky mainly because I'm worried I'll spend more than I need to getting this thing ready for the future...

    Dolphin browser HD v11

    AT&T New family plan

    Later today I'm switching over to the new two line plan, or at least plan to anyways. While the plan was kind of expensive ($180 for two lines) but the service has been impeccable over here in Hawaii, minus the north shore and now I can save $50/mo. The four line (still cheaper) is so...

    I3-2310 + GT555M

    I had a thread earlier asking about a laptop under $500, but I was given a little bit more room to work with so now I'm no longer looking at barebones gaming with a laptop. I have heard people were dissapointed with how the GT540M performed and the GT555M was a really good sweet spot with out...

    460GTX WHDI - who likes this?
