    You can adapt it from normal SATA. As far as I can see on Asus's specs for that board, they only say it works in PCIe mode, not SATA mode. @airdeano has one, so maybe he can confirm. I may be reading it wrong.
  2. Oshino Shinobu


    Asus's site says it only operates in PCIe mode and not SATA in the M.2 slot. "1 x M.2 Socket 3, , with M Key, type 2260/2280 storage devices support (PCIE mode)"
  3. Oshino Shinobu


    No, they use different communication protocols. You can adapt normal SATA into M.2 SATA, but NVMe/PCIe based M.2 can't be adapted to SATA M.2 as far as I know. If you don't already have the drive, I'd suggest either buying the normal 2.5" 860 EVO SATA drive or buying an NVMe drive.
  4. Oshino Shinobu


    No, it won't. The Z97-A's M.2 port only supports M Key PCIe/NVMe SSDs. The 860 EVO is SATA
  5. Picked up the new car today. So nice, massive upgrade from my little 1.2l. 


    Does spin its wheels quite a bit when it's wet though.

      Same. I think it's probably BMW's best body style. Have plans for a few modification, but I'll wait till I've had it for a while before starting,.

    DVI-D to Display Port doesn't work with 144hz

    "Supports Deep Color, 10.8 Gbps bandwidth and resolutions up to 1080p at 60 Hz" You need an active adaptor for 144Hz

    How to install Windows

    I very rarely see anyone ask how to install Windows. It's easier to just link to an article that is already written, like this one https://www.howtogeek.com/197559/how-to-install-windows-10-on-your-pc/

    Port Forwarding

    Most will not need to port forward to play games, but you would likely need to in order to host game servers. For things like IP cameras, there's often better options than port forwarding to the cameras. In my case, I have port forwarding setup to my server, which runs a VPN which can be connected to, from which you can then view the IP cameras remotely. The security risks really change depending on what ports are forwarded. Some ports are commonly forwarded for services, so they'll be attacked more often. If you have the option to choose a port that something is forwarded on, choose a high, random port that isn't used for a common service or type of traffic. Still, for playing games, you shouldn't need to port forward.
  9. Yep. You don't have to declare it either. Just to clarity, the limit is per item. So a £300 CPU and a £300 motherboard would not be subject to import duties, even though the combined value is over £390. EDIT: It's worth giving HMRC a call if you have any questions though, just to be certain.
  10. You have an allowance of £390 for a single good when bringing it in from a country outside the EU. Anything over that, you have to pay duties on the full cost of the item. Customs charge is 2.5% up to £630. Over that, it depends on the item. You may have to pay import VAT, which is the standard rate for the UK (20%) EDIT: Also, you need to declare items over the £390 allowance. If you don't they can be seized.

    why do company's not sell older things brand new?

    Because people aren't buying it in mass. It costs a hell of a lot more to build things in small quantity as you have to maintain a production line that has little output and next to no profit.

    Will I Need a New PSU?

    Not great, but not terrible either. If you have some budget to spare for a PSU upgrade, I would advise doing so, but it will run fine on that.

    Show me your phone's homescreen!

    I'm not much of a mobile gamer, so don't really have any installed. Only one I have is Runescape, but I'll pretty much only play that on my tablet if I'm going to play it away from my PC.

    Will I Need a New PSU?

    It will use less power than the 8350, and DDR4 should use less than the DDR3, so you'll be fine, provided the PSU is decent quality
