    HUGE! shootout to @Damascus who helped immensely with guidance and advice.
    The way the @CableMod 8-pins sit over the GPU tube was last minute improve when I was eyeball measuring to run it way lower. Saved a fitting this way and think it looks a lot better than what I had planned just kind of hiding the tube behind the GPU.

    Prize: LeaningTech LTC K61 MX Brown Switches - Bought forever ago. Used for like 8 mins. Hated not having dedicated arrow keys and disliked brown switches. (G, H, and L caps only removed to show switches). No MicroUSB cable or box will be included.
     
    Eligibility Requirements: Human (or programed to display human-like behaviors).
     
    Rules:
    Member for at least 30 days, content count of at least 50.
    Posting more than 1 reply will disqualify you. Even if you hide it.
    Do not edit your comment. This makes it difficult to tell who read the rules correctly the first time and you will be DQ'd.
    Must be willing to endure all the notifications that go with entering.
    Staff can enter for someone else if you're willing to take the notification bullet.
    Users outside of North America can enter for someone else if you're willing to take the notification bullet.
     
    How to enter:
     
    Just post 1 comment of any kind on this status (literally posting "1 comment of any kind" is not a rule, even though I understand why you could think I would be that evil.)
     
    Giveaway will be closed Thursday whenever you see it get locked.
     
    Keyboard will be shipped to my winner at my expense. North America only since it isn't worth shipping overseas.

    Used the Zealios for about 20 pages of a proposal. I thought the tactile bump would be enough to satisfy my need for feedback when typing really, really fast, but sadly it does not. I found myself looking down occasionally when I was not audibly certain of a key press. I do like the feel of Zealios, but cannot use them when I need to get serious. This was expected though, so they are  in my secondary keyboard which I use in my lab. I have a more casual pace there so it's much less impactful.
     

     
    They will be staying though. So that says a lot. 👌

    Not that i'm gonna do anything with it for the moment, but I have one now. My bitmoji is the closest I have to my face on the internet at this time (ignoring my LinkedIn profile).
     
    I don't understand people who frequently use social media as a vehicle for consumption. It seems like such a shallow and narrow way of viewing life.

    Good news though is that the computer is pretty much done minus one of my H100i v2's being defective. After I replace that everything will be ready to go.

    First off, I wish to thank @Droidbot for giving me the information, and in general, pointing me in the right direction.
    After some more research, I am no longer interested in ever purchasing Schiit products ever again.
     
    They are a company that actively attacks those who have constructive criticism, while also demonizing those who have objective measurements showing the flaws in their hardware.
     
    I will never knowingly support a company that does that.
    JDS labs Element line looks interesting, so that might be my next upgrade.
     
    Also, this is the exact problem that i'm having.
    I just tested, it's persistent between devices.  Same error.
    Honestly my focusrite scarlet solo is a surprisingly good DAC/AMP.
    Also only 100 buckazoids.
     
    I tried to at least temporarily revive the Modi to do an A B test, but that's not going to happen.
    But if memory is recalled correctly, the DAC was about the same quality as the Schiit, but the AMP was a bit weaker (it can only really reach about 90% of Schiit's low gain).
     
    Either way, I think that i'm going to save up for the element.
    Now for the email that I sent to Schiit.  Well, I do love to troll.
     
    Also, because I can, @MyInnerFred, ever find a solution?
