    The Fastest Xbox of All Time

    I tried to get that board to work but it didn't work out. Instead I made a custom board that is basically just a switch soldered to a prototype board and placed behind the power button. Lighting is done with a small section of an RGB strip.

    The ULTIMATE Powerhouse Sleeper PC

    Margaret, oh Margaret. Potentially the build that caused the most stress ever, taking over a month to complete due to every step having loads of strange complications. But in the end.. oh she's a beauty.

    The Fastest Xbox of All Time

    Our board had one USB 2 and a USB 3 header, so we used a USB 3 internal header and a USB 2 internal header. Both were a bit too wide so some material was removed on the belt sander and then hot glued into place (like the really good hot glue though haha)

    Nvme vs sata ssd

    M.2 can have performance decrease due to heat, but even then it will still be faster than a SATA drive. Basically if you can afford the NVME drive then get that one, it's waaaay faster than sata.

    Should be more than enough

    Maybe just try installing direct X manually? I don't know what step its failing on so hard to say.

    I'm guessing it's some sort of a hardware problem then, I really don't know. Seems really weird that even a fresh install didn't fix it.

    Monitor panel and resolution

    If you can do 1440P then do it, with a 1080Ti you can still get v solid frames

    Nope, but it can rule out a lot of potential problems. Reinstalling Windows is kind of a pain, so checking things out in Event Viewer is probably a good first step. Also just make a new USB drive using the Media Creation Tool so you don't need to update everything.

    Yeah that's 100% fine

    I have no clue, maybe use Event Viewer to try and figure out what is happening when it crashes.

    best (gaming/business) chair under 220€ international

    Recommending a chair is hard because everyone is most comfortable in something slightly different. Just make sure whatever it is has lots of adjustment, i.e. back angle, seat angle, tilt stiffness, arm rests vertical and horizontal, adjustable lumbar support is a bonus. In the office Maxnomic is the most popular, my personal favorite is the Vertagear SL4000 but almost everyone else I know hates it haha

    Maybe run a couple stress tests to make sure it isn't anything hardware related. Probably just some weird software thing though so a reinstall of Windows isn't a bad idea.

    Will This Waterblock Fit my GPU?

    If I had to guess it'll be fine, but just email Alphacool to confirm.

    What are the specs of your system? Are temps okay, the CPU could be overheating and causing your computer to shut down. Reinstalling Windows also could be a good idea.

    The Fastest Xbox of All Time

    The 5mm holes are for a 3/16" rivet, giving you a bit of room to mess up the bends. The green is mounting for the GPU, also 5mm but I made it slotted since I wasn't 100% on the placement. The GPU is upside down and isn't over the motherboard, the large circle is for a fan. That's super weird about the original, I'll try uploading it again. EDIT: I also added a eDrawings file so hopefully that doesn't get all messed up.

    So I made a super bad drawing, not sure everything you need is on it but should be close.

    The Fastest Xbox of All Time

    Maybe try eDrawings, I'm pretty sure it will let you get what you want. If that doesn't work then I'll create a drawing with the dimensions.

    Sorry, Razer.. I’m not switching

    For over a year the Blade Stealth has been in my backpack, but the 2019 model won't be taking it's place. Buy Razer Blade Stealth On Amazon: http://geni.us/SVwg On Newegg: http://geni.us/ExAwfN

    Sorry, Razer.. I’m not switching

    Spec wise it's a good value, but the build quality is very far from the competition. To me their most interesting laptop is the X1, and they haven't changed that since we last looked at it.

    why does the LTT forum have Google and Amazon trackers on it?

    I don't actually know but I'm guessing it's the Amazon Ad at the very bottom of the page.
