    Question about laptop charger

    The higher amperage isn't a problem as the laptop will only take what it requires. Just make sure that you get a good quality adapter and not a no-name brand unit.

    Any way to fix this mouse?

    Open it up and inspect the switch, most likely you will need to get a replacement omron switch and desolder the old one to remove it.
  3. Isopropyl as long as you aren't constantly exposing the plastics and rubbers to it won't be a problem, 99% isopropyl will be ideal. A good bath and adijation for a few mins should do it, you will want to let dry it for at least a few hours. For the contacts I'm talking about the keys themselves and not the cables as those or other small SMD electronics that can't be access are what may see corrosion.
  4. I usually recommend to bath it in alcohol for it to displace as much water as possible, since it's a laptop keyboard most times you won't be able to take it apart much further to try and scrub off the contacts or pads as those may have potential corrosion from minerals in the water.

    EK-CryoFuel Solid Concentrate

    For the solid lineup they are not compatible with aluminum based loops, only the transparent cryofuel products. https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-cryofuel-solid-cloud-white-concentrate-250-ml#ow_alert_box
  7. Looks like that controller has two ports for LED strips, if it is the 4 pin variant then regular analog RGB base strips with the correct connector should be able to interface with that unit. -Moved to Modding Section-

    Digital Rgb to usb

    That's not possible what you require is a controller that can interface between your USB and the 3 pin addressable LED strips. There are premade systems such as Corsair's Lighting node pro which has software control.

    Tempered Glass

    It varies usually I would say 1/8" or ideally up to 3/16" would be a good option. Just remember once tempered holes can't be drill or dimensions changed so you got to make sure everything it needs gets done before the tempering process.

    Corsair AF 120 Quite Edition

    How do you plan to mount the 120mm to a 140mm rad you will need an adapter plate, as for the AF series it will work on a radiator but it will be less effective than a pressure optimized fan. The difference won't be extremely large but definitely measurable.

  12. The only viable space I see is right in front where the motherboard is and that would require you to cut up the case to install a dual slot PCI-E bracket to house a vertical mount. https://www.mountainmods.com/product_info.php?products_id=754&osCsid=uoudpelju1l1e88lus07tr8v63 https://mnpctech.com/case-mods-gaming-pc-liquid-modding-custom-computer-mnpctech-overclock-cooling-fan-grills/mnpctech-small-vertical-video-card-gpu-mounting-bracket-black-requires-cutting.html -Moved to Modding Section-

    external psu

    For those kinds of motherboard they usually accept a range of 12-19V so you can use regular laptop power supplies, similar with the HD plex unit which goes all the way up to 16-24V, Pico unit looks to only accept 12V. For the power brick you will want to get something that is good quality and not a no name brand unit, something from Meanwell, Delta, FSP, will all be good things to look for. I'd personally recommend the HD plex if you want to use regular ATX connection motherboards.

    Can't find a cable

    Unless they've purposely simplified the software and programming of it for addressable lights they are capable of being individually lite and controlled independently of each other. A good example is NAXT hue and Corsair Lighting node which allows for single LED control. I'd contact Gigabyte to see if that was something they omitted or is possible with their software.

    Check the manual, gigabyte does provide some general details like this: @1:00
