  1. Don't know if this is okay with the forum rules but aI think it could be a cool opportunity. I saw someone on Facebook Marketplace selling an NVIDIA Jetson TK1 DevKit with shipping available and thought it was worth sharing. I think it'd be cool if LGM bought it and maybe did a video on it. Here's a link to the listing: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/317920952935077/ to be honest, I didn't know what it was at first so I decided to do a little digging. Apparently you can actually get them (if you're a developer) for $192 USD directly from the NVIDIA site: https://developer.nvidia.com/embedded/buy/jetson-devkit I've been doing a little reading on them and it looks like it could be pretty cool and informational. Even if they decide not to jump on it, I think it's still worth sharing here. If LGM passes on it and one of you guys to pick it up, definitely let us know (or at least me) I'd love to hear from you!
  2. I'm a big fan on the XBox One controller and I'm thrilled that Windows 10 has compatibility built-in. However, I'm not a big fan of cables. I've looked up wireless adapters for it but I'm also not a big fan of plugging a USB dongle to my computer for it. I was wondering if there is something that gives the same functionality of a USB dongle but maybe something that fits into a mobo expansion slot or something like PCI-E or M.2 or if I'm just being too picky? Wasn't sure how to flair this post. Kinda "peripherals" but it's also kinda "motherboards" or something?
  3. So I have an extremely specific minute question when it comes to RAM. I'm building a computer using the MSI B150 Mortar motherboard. Under the "compatibility" section for this mobo's website, I was looking up memory. Link to the website here The RAM in question is the Kingston Fury RAM. I was going to get two 8GB sticks for 16GB of it. Inspecting the NewEgg specs for this RAM, the Model # is HX421C14FB2K2/16. The B150 Mortar's compatibility does not include the HX421C14FB2K2/16. HOWEVER it does allow for lHX421C14FB2K4/32, lHX421C14FB2K8/64, and lHX421C14FB2K4/16 If you ctrl+f "lHX421C14FB2K", you'll notice that they are all nearly the same model but with different last 4 characters. The last 4 characters are the "number of sticks"/"resulting amount of RAM". (example, 2 sticks of 8GB is 16GB so it'll be 2/16) (example, 4 sticks of 8GB is 32GB so it'll be 4/32) Being said, considering the compatibility section of the B150 Mortar says you can have that stick in "4 sticks of 8GB" and "4 sticks of 4GB", is it possible to run "2 sticks of 8GB"?
  4. Sorry for getting to this pretty late. How does the Xeon 1230 V5 compare to the i5 6500 as far as gaming goes?
  5. There is no antennae ports on the back. Although, if I need to have antennae, I would probably mount them in the little water cooling area next to the PSU probably through the aforementioned holes. I would really rather not have a couple of antennae sticking out of the front of the case grossly -- especially not with this case. "if it mentions using M.2 for wifi in the manual it may have these" have what? Built-in antennae on the mobo?
  6. I am new to the whole M.2 thing. I only just learned that it can be used for Wi-Fi. When I was looking at the specs for the B150M Mortar, under Wi-Fi, it says that you can connect using M.2. I searched online for M.2 Wi-Fi cards and found many. Some places where I look say that I need antennae, however. The instructions for the mobo aren't exactly helpful and haven't found anything helpful online either. I have used mobos in the past that don't have this issue, why is this the case with this one? Do you need antennae for an M.2 Wi-Fi card such as the Intel 7260NGW for this mobo? If so, is there another M.2 Wi-Fi card that I can use that does NOT require antennae? If no, is there a similar mobo I can use that negates this problem? If you're curios about the rest of the build (I'm making it for a friend), you can check it out here: https://www.reddit.com/r/buildapc/comments/4q98hk/building_a_microatx_gamingrendering_pc_for_a/
  7. What are your thoughts on the SeaSonic M12II 520 Bronze? https://pcpartpicker.com/mr/newegg/TgW9TW
  8. I was looking at the Xeon 1232 as well. Decided to go for the Skylake because it was cheaper and the LGA 1151 socket type in case he wants to upgrade to an i7 or something in the future. I felt the same thing about the 6500 but in the end, he felt okay swinging the extra $20 on the 6600. The CPU decision was definitely more his choice than mine, which I guess is fine since it's his build and the CPU choice is still pretty high end. I'll admit I'm not the most educated on power supplies. Why is this PSU a poor choice? What would you recommend instead?
  9. I'm building a PC for a friend. He's living with his parents and jumps between houses a lot and as they live far away from one another, he'd like to take his PC with him. He seems insistent on having a desktop instead of a laptop. He plans on doing gaming but also does video editing. I have this build in mind for him but I was wondering if there is anything I'm overlooking as far as compatibility or any recommendations. Thank you! CPU : Intel Core i5 6600 https://pcpartpicker.com/mr/newegg/m9Gj4D CPU Cooler : Cooler Master Hyper 212X https://pcpartpicker.com/mr/newegg/KzfmP6 Mobo : MSI B150M Mortar https://pcpartpicker.com/mr/newegg/kGcMnQ RAM : Kingston HyperX Fury https://pcpartpicker.com/mr/newegg/xhM323 Boot SSD : Samsung 850 EVO-Series 120GB https://pcpartpicker.com/mr/newegg/9Q7CmG Secondary HDD : Seagate Barracuda 2TB https://pcpartpicker.com/mr/newegg/KyCwrH Graphics Card : Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 https://pcpartpicker.com/mr/ncixus/ZntWGX (As a caveat, I'm going to throw my old GTX 560 in there for free in the meantime though since he's looking to save some money right now to afford the 1070 later and when there are cheaper non-founder's editions on sale) Case : Xigmatek Aquila https://pcpartpicker.com/mr/amazon/r9sKHx PSU : Thermaltake TR2 500W https://pcpartpicker.com/mr/newegg/bb3RsY Other : Azurewave WiFi + Bluetooth 4.0 M.2 card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA9H43VT8137&cm_re=M.2_Wi-Fi_module-_-9SIA9H43VT8137-_-Product The reason I went for the Micro-ATX motherboard was because I wanted something small so he can throw it with him in his car and take it with him easily. Plus the PCIE sockets are apparently very strong which helps when he wants to transport the rig. That was also the main reason behind the case which is durable and has handles. Another great thing about the case is that the mobo is horizontally mounted which means that a full sized CPU Cooler can fit -- which is handy considering the Skylakes can run pretty hot. While I could have gone for a lower end CPU, he plans on doing a lot of video editing in Adobe Premier and capturing with his Elgato 60fps. I thought that it would ease the workload by a lot. The M.2 card at the bottom is for WiFi and Bluetooth which the mobo doesn't come with be default. I know people tend to dislike the PSU choice but it's a leftover 500w that I got brand new and I barely used before I had to upgrade to a higher wattage -- I'm giving it to him for free. Altogether, I was thinking that this is a pretty cheap build (minus the GTX 1070) and something that would be perfect for my friend considering his computing needs and living situation. If I overlooked anything or have any recommendations, please let me know. Thank you!
  10. I worked as a QA Tester hired through Volt. A few months ago, they were having a "yard sale" at our studio and giving away some of the old gaming computers.
  11. I have an 970 in my system now. I do intend to upgrade to a 980 TI eventually though. The ultimate goal is to SLI two of them. Right now, this is what I own and what I have the money for.
  12. I've had a gaming PC from when I worked at Activision for a while. I've steadily upgraded it over time. But now I'm getting ready to build my own computer. I've done some research and I think all these parts are compatible but would like some help from those who are more experienced than I am. I have a few questions. Are these parts compatible? Will my PSU have enough Watts? Am I missing anything crucial?
