  1. ya for me i started with a 1366 and a i7920 and 6 gig of ram. 2x 150 gb wd velociraptor drives. i got get what gpu i had i no it was fanless if the rings any bells. and me and my dad got in to water cooling so i got his hammy downs gpus with water block's. then i upgraded to a i5 6600k,noctua nh-d15, z170 mb and 16gb ram and got a gigabite g1 winforce 1080 and got a 480 gb ssd for $135 at the time. i later on upgraded the mb to an mark 1 z270 mb only for looks thow. all pics and info is posted in my build log. i normally build a budget pc say $900 ish but this time i when mad with power haha..... only thing laughing is my wallet. that ssd thow once you get one you never go back....
  2. ya we all buy things that we might not need or upgrade even thow have no reason too. over the years me an my dad building computers we had hhd,mb,gpus,psu's, ram, all go bad. my dad right now has an asus 780 gpu with bad ram. he had to down clock it to even play some games with it. gpu cooling it alot better then what it use to be so gpus might not die as much but back then your lucky to get 4 years out of it.
  3. other youtubers for posture uprighthealth grillazenfitness grilla zen fitness stopped posting on youtube and post on facebook and twiter i think. you want your monitor you you not looking up or down just strata at it.
  4. you could but it will cost more then buying a new keyboard....
  5. asus manual looks to me that mb only has 12 rgb and not addressable (argb 5v) witch is what the Anidees RGB LED controller uses. so there an adapter that converts 12v rgb from the mb to argb 5v device but it wont be adressable so all the leds will show the same color.
  6. there was a topic about this a few moths ago and the verdict is its too new so there no adapters, convertors or cable extensions.
  7. thx i get it but my last post talking about how much rgb and the second it got moved i got no post's. i just wanted to talk to people about stuff that all
  8. so dam hard to look at laptops as they only list the cpu ram and hhd size. you have to go out your way to look to see what gpu is in it! pane in the butt. if there marking for gamers there doing a bad job imo
  9. ya i got an caselabs th10 case (the bigest you can get ) and i put 38 cheap fans in there. at the time i cared more about air flow and number of fans that i got a side panel with a vent instead of a window and i got a gpu bracket that you an attach 4 more 120m fans too.... haha ya my friend had a 486 good times good times ya back then your wallet determent how good of pc you had then and the games were way more demanding then today. i grew up with a voodoo 2. good for 3dfx games but lots of games would not run with it.... i guess that just shows how good we have it to day what you money can buy. ya monitors and tvs are getting cheaper and cheaper. i played vr once and loved it but for the cost for games and having space to setup is my problem but in time it will get cheaper.
  10. hmm good point. resolution could be the option to upgrade in the future. also better vr as well. my self i have no idea what my monitor is i think is 60 herz. and i don't really care about how things look so long as its not lagy. so 60 fps is probably were im happy at as well. if there were good looking games that were fun and not full of micro transactions and pay to win then maybe id care a little more.
  11. what do you think about having higher temps for the sake of looks. reason to save money, or just don't care. seems like there lots of people that pick bad air flow cases over looks or just didn't no it was a bad case. the people that complaint that your pc runs 3 degrees hotter should you care ? and why. how long do you want your pc to last? are we at a point were are pc are so powerful that it will be still a good pc10+ years form now and heck may even be a good gaming pc? how long do you go till upgrading? do you build he best pc that money can buy (or makes scene) or do you build a budget build that you upgrade over time or in a few years or build a new pc in a few years. do you think about what you can sell your stuff for a few years form now or 10 years form now or don't care. most pc's can last at least 10 years but will it be even be usable or even care about it in 10 years anyway or do you build your pc to get the temps as low as possible so it will last longer. what i think: as long as the games i play don't lag i don't really care about resolution. and as of late i mostly just watch people play games on youtube then play them myself. if games didn't have micro transactions or pay to win i would care more about playing. i mostly play mindcraft, diablo 2, no man sky, but there are a lot of old games that are good, cheap and fun to play that i have not played like borderlands or skyrim or titans quest haha. maybe your in the same bot and put off building an epic build for gaming and just build for looks and fun like me. Plz Moderators don't move this post for at lest a week. once it gets moved the Discussion stops! this is supposed to be a community Discussion forms! grammar nazi's plz don't post!
  12. things to come. i decided to add argb under my case and got better casters, this mofo gona be heavy.....i might add an out side argb hook up too in case i want to add argb to my desk. i order for rubber grommets to clean up my holes i made for the 120mm fans on the bottom as the cables will go under that case. i thought about adding plexy or some plastic to hide all the mb rubber grommets and all the holes i made trying different set ups.... so ill have to look at what's local for plexie galss or something and see what it cost. well im at it i might get a peace clear and add another window to the other side and i thought about making my own heat shield mb but i already got a mb that has it so it be for another pc or the asus mb. i still want the mark 1 z170 mb thow as i really like the 40mm fan on the north bridge for some reason. i thought about getting a custom 40mm argb fan gill made but i have not asked the guy yet if he can do it an what it cost. if not then ill have to get an 40mm fan adapter to like 120mm fan will look weird but w/e that my thing haha. (oh looks like the guys not selling on ebay anymore... hmm) another thing is getting an 25mm thick clear 40mm fan and add an argb strip around it. that's how corsair argb ram cooler works just 2 50mm clear fans with an argb strip around them and a housing around that. i don't have a 3d printer so i cant make a housing so it will probably be geto. also got some u channel to clean up my cut in the front.
  13. hmm dint no that cheap diy stuff dint work with aura. i do remember reading on forms about it thow
  14. one controller to control the strips on the outside and one on the inside (im guessing your mb) but they wont be synced up. if you want them to be then your option is to run a cable out side the case.
  15. there's no usb argb controller that works with aura. your options is to use 2 different controllers or run a cable out side. there is one controller that dose have an outside usb but i don't recommend it. and is not aura. asus dose have an argb controller but its expensive and i don't no much about it.
  16. i ended up buying this off ebay. 60led/m black pcb 4mm 3535 so we will see.
  17. i don't own corsair strips so i don't no. most strips every 3 leds you can cut. there will be a mark on there that will show vd-g : vd+g
  18. ya i love the asus sabortooth bordes one day ill have a collection of them. my dad he the one with the heat shield bur he took it off. it is a scam but hey i just like it. i thoght about making my own heat shield out of plexy or something might still do that as the mb that have it are still like $150+ hmm and i thought 3 years was too long...on my build. ya i did raid once my dad set up a 2 150 wd gb velociraptors and he did an overclock on the 920 form 2.66 to 4.0 and worked for a bit but then it failed and when that happens you cant get your data off of it so anything that was not saved on my storage drive was lost so no raid for me haha im in the same bot as you with windows 10 i hate it. and i built a new build around the idea. 2 pc in 1 case one windows 7 and other windows 10 for gaming only. i did buy a used laptop that has Windows 10 on it and m.2. and windows 7 wont install on a m.2 so.....im forced to use windows 10 on it.... i did disable as much as i could be time will tell it it stays that way. i keep my updates off and i have no problems so w/e if i get hacked i get hacked. i should keep all my storage off line thow.
  19. ya...there no way in hell i can soldering them haha. ya sometimes you can find some cool stuff on aliexpress that you cant find in ebay, ammazon. like i found some 2.5mm rgb leds... i was going to add 5mm rgb leds form my g1/4 stops but it be hard to control them with corsair controller. there is one convertor but its also costly. i did buy some WS2812B 5mm leds but i don't no.
  20. hmm looks like 2020 is the new thing and when its new its expensive....that should mean that 144/m leds should be cheaper now...
  21. are you saying 3535 smd argb strips don't work with an argb controller? like the corsair controller. my ek gpu water block is non rgb so i want to add some.
  22. so im looking for some thin argb strips and looks like the smallest is 4mm width with 3535 smd. i looking to add to a gpu block and other water blocks. looks like there 144led/m but with a width of 8mm (as it looks like the chip on the side) there 60led/m 4mm width black pcb non water proof 60led/m 4mm width silacone tube if you added argb strip to your water block what size did you use?
