    Probably mentioned this at some point but a mATX build would be gr8.
     
    Keep using the DRP4 and have a GPU or two. Probs Zen 2 on the CPU side since there's only one good X99 mATX board (GL getting it for a decent price too).

    I had a dream I bought the Exact Great Wall Unit from the Wal-Mart PC (in some ways I think I did with the Gray Label CX550M) Nothing exciting happened, I was just holding it and examining the outside of the box. My dreams arent intricate enough to see the internals since I really dont know what they look like (I've seen pictures but that doesn't translate to knowledge)

    Throwback to when I thought 4x 30" 1600p Gateway XHD3000 monitors was a good idea. (2008)
     

    @flibberdipper I was looking for other photos of that keyboard and google photos is scary good at finding things.
     
    These things ran so hot that they killed themselves. RMA'd them each twice, then Acer bought Gateway and gave me a full refund of each one. $1799/ea even though the 2nd set was only $899 in a fire sale. So I made a bunch off of these in the long run.

    One of the things that has eluded me about USB Type C was its retention system. On Micro B it's easy to see; those little bumps on the top of the cable's connector are it (they go into divots in the device's end). But in Type C I couldn't see anything. So I chalked it up to either friction or those six metal bits on the end of the cable's connector.
     
    It turns out it doesn't look like either. I found an exploded diagram of the cable's connector (image from https://www.tweaktown.com/news/50182/wary-cheap-usb-type-cables-fry-hardware/index.html)

     
    And I noticed there two claw looking arms colored dark teal. That looks like a retention system. So after digging around some more, I came to this website: https://www.appliancedesign.com/articles/94953-next-generation-connectors. They have a diagram of the assembly of the cable side's connector and sure enough, there are two claw type arms on either side of the connector. And those six metal bits may or may not be metal, but they look more for structural support than for retention.

     
    So what about the device end?

     
    There's two flanges out on the tab that has all the pins. And to verify this was really a thing, I poked at my phone's Type C port with a staple and managed to hook onto the flange.  So there you go, USB Type C's retention system.
     
    (also I'm not sure if this was even discussed in the places where I first heard about the connector)
