  1. That is a nice idea! Thanks! I think I'll just have to make sure that I don't shake the drives while they are powered on.
  2. Docks are expensive, can I use this? I believe I can connect a 12V adapter at the back. How many amps? I don't know.
  3. Greetings. I have a pile of HDDs with various storage capacities which I need to check for their contents and health. I found multiple SATA to USB adapters on Amazon however I'm not sure if they will be able to provide the drives with sufficient power. If not, then I'd like to know of an efficient method of testing the drives without connecting them internally. Thanks.
  4. My bad! I'll factor that in. So? 6700 it is? What if I want an i5? Which one should be picked?
  5. Hello, people of the internet! My PC has an i3 6100 on a Gigabyte B150M-DS3H motherboard. Paired with an R9 280x, 16GB RAM and 750W PSU. I want to upgrade the CPU to allow me run CPU intensive games like Cities : Skylines, GTA V, CS:GO, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Obviously, I won't be able to do much overclocking on this motherboard. Keeping all this info in mind, what should I purchase? I can sell my i3 for 100-150$ and I can spend another 100-150$ from my pocket. Your answers and required and appriciated! Thanks!
  6. Okay. Thank you very much! I will let you know if I end up burning something. Fingers crossed.
  7. Alright. But this makes me think, how are regular, built for PC LED strips powered inside a case?
  8. So do you suggest that I go ahead and solder up the wires to the strip and connect them to a molex? What safety precautions should I take?
  9. Wow I left this site for too long. Sorry for that. Its an Antec TP 750.
  10. Can't the strips work individually? What if I want only one strip inside the case since they are so bright? Also, a quick google search revealed that a molex connector carries 36W of power. Will it be OK if I plug it in there or is it a big no no?
  11. The box says DC 12V, there are 2 strips in the box. I'm assuming one strip requires 6V. The shopkeeper tested the lights with a big battery. There were no resistors in sight.
  12. Hi guys, hope you all are having a good day. I have bought a Corsair Carbide Spec-04, it's in the mail currently, and I wanted to attach a strip of 6W Blue LEDs inside. The strip has a set of solder points on each side. So, how do I go about connecting it into the PSU? I have a ton of spare molex, pci-e, sata power and 4 pin things coming off the PSU. I don't understand electronics that well so I figured asking the community is the safer way to go. Thanks!
  13. Arright! I'll be selling my 750Ti then.
