    Ways to retrieve an NCIX Invoice

    I am afraid you may be out of luck. Unless you buy one of NCIX's old servers. https://www.tweaktown.com/news/63283/ncix-servers-sold-craigslist-15-years-user-data/index.html
  2. LTT official vpn is PIA and I have had great experiences with it over the last few years.
  3. Windows probably won't be happy and you will have to call or contact microsoft about getting a new key if having a registered version of windows is important to you otherwise it shouldn't casue too much of an issue.

    Osu dead or something else

    This is why people always say to get a legitimate brand power supply, not a no-brand one. If you are lucky, then replacing the power supply with a new one will likely solve your problem. If you aren't lucky and something else was damaged by the power supply you could end up needing to replace your motherboard, or even more of the components. If the power supply has a fan or any leds on it that's an easy way to see if it's entirely dead, but you would likely need to jumper it for those to turn on, so you might want to ask a non color blind friend to help you out, or just count the pins. PC part picker is showing about 580 W with 2 1080 cards, so your's is probably a bit less, but you should probably be looking for a 650 W plus power supply, just to have a safe margin.

    This AM4 Motherboard any good? (FreeNAS)

    Looks fine to me as long as you don't want more than 6 drives. The only other thing to keep in mind would be to make sure the 10gbit LAN card has drivers for linux that will work with FreeNAS

    CPU Trends Poll

    I might be a bit biased as an AMD shareholder.

    DIY Lithium Battery - What could go wrong??

    The thumbnail is still showing up wrong for me. Even on the LTT website.

    The thumbnail is showing up weird for some reason now @nicklmg
  9. Ok just watched the video myself and the bottom line is NO you can't really use it with a windows machine.
  10. The bottom line is that I don't believe that AMD cpus support thunderbolt 3 as thunderbolt is a standard created by intel. Also you may find this video somewhat relevant to your question.

    Thermal Paste and Cheap case fans

    What case and yeah probably 2x 120 be quiet fans aren't too expensive I think. Noctua is of course the best.

    Will the cooler fit?

    120 mm is going to be better than a stock cooler. I guess I don't really understand what you want.

    Will the cooler fit?

    the stock cooler will cool it just fine if you don't overclock that is what it is designed to do.
