  1. I dropped a pencil lead under the left shift key of my XPS 15 (9550) . Unfortunately I did not realize how delicate the plastic clips were under the key and ended up breaking them trying to remove the lead. Where can I get replacement keycaps/clips? Would a site like this work? I'm unsure what hinge type I will need.

    Recommend a Surge Protector

    Well do you have any recommendations for surge protectors? I'm looking for something with a sufficient joule rating and CAT6 protection.

    Recommend a Surge Protector

    A UPS is much more expensive than a surge protector. Are there any benefits over a surge protector besides not having the PC shut off if power is interrupted?

    Recommend a Surge Protector

    I guess its technically a peripheral... I'm looking for surge protector recommendations that offer enough protection for a gaming PC with a 9900K & 2080.

    psu with high quality cables

    Thats a shame there isn't a PSU with good cables. Are extensions really that bad? They seem like a cheap decent looking option.

    Silent Base 801
  7. I'm looking for a 650w PSU to use in my dark/RGB build. I'm looking for a PSU with high quality cables because I'd rather not drop an additional $100 on cablemod ones. For example the cables on the RMX white are individually braided while on the RMX black they are braided in groups with plastic ends. I am looking for a PSU with cables similar to the RMX white, but in black.

    Help reccomend me a case

    Think I'm going to settle with the be quiet! 801 black. Thanks for the suggestions anyway.
  9. Recently Zeus sent a thunderbolt directly into my power-supply strong enough to fry most of the components in my desktop so I'm rebuilding from scratch. I decided I wanted to do a black/RGB build and that it was time to turn RTX ON (Sorry team Red). However I'm having trouble finding a card that fits the style of my build. Beauty is subjective. While some people love their "gamer angles", I prefer a cleaner, modern appearance. I would have loved to use a founders edition card in my build, but unfortunately they don't make those in "dark". Is it really that hard guys? So, being a long term EVGA loyalist I checked out their RTX lineup first... and oh Lord... I'm not exactly sure what the design team was thinking when they decided to use the most gaudy looking transparent plastic on all of their RTX cards, but at least the thousands of E's on the fan blades will improve airflow, right? Thats gonna be a hard pass from me. After reviewing the available RTX cards my runner up choice was the ASUS TURBO edition: Relativity discrete looking, nice Subtle RGB lighting, very nice No back-plate... I can buy one Has poor thermal performance, loud and reviews indicating numerous issues, nice... wait a sec Anyway I'm stumped, I can't find a card that completes my sense of style and I don't want to buy from a brand like PNY or ZOTAC so I haven't looked at options from them. But hey, maybe I'm still missing something. I'm open to suggestions if anyone knows of some clean looking cards.

    Help reccomend me a case

    Necroing the thread, I appreciate the recommendations but I'm just not satisfied with what I'm finding. If I were to describe what I'm looking for it would be a case that looks almost exactly like the Corsair Carbide 678C but with glass on the front that shows the fans (Also that case is way overpriced, what the heck!). Here is my WIP parts list if it helps, I think I'm going to settle on black/RGB. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/b4Kqvn

    Help reccomend me a case

    Thats definitely a step in the right direction, but the white and aluminum parts being different colors really bothers me. Its not a deal breaker but I would have preferred if the case was more like the H700 with the power supply located on the bottom covered by a shroud, making the PC taller and less wide.
  12. I'm looking for a case to start a new build around the rtx founders edition cards design. I'm looking for a case that: Is ATX or smaller Has an open look with lots of windows, clearly showing the internals Has the ability to install the graphics card vertically Complements the clean, modern look of the rtx founders edition card (No gamer angles) Isn't heavy or boxy looking Isn't almost as wide as it is tall Isn't seriously expensive I serious dig the style of Thermaltake Core P3 Curve, however the lack of top and rear paneling and off-center position of the feet is a deal breaker for me. If this case had metal panels covering the top, bottom and side this would be my ideal choice and definitely represents the style of case I am looking for. Unfortunately unlike the Core P5 there is no option for the Core P3 to come with side panels. I had considered the Core P5 but ultimately decided it was too big for what I need and way too expensive to be a good choice.
  13. Well, my PC just crashed and my 980ti smells like a dumpster fire. After giving it a chance to cool down, I tried to reboot but my PC wouldn't post with the card inserted. I'm going to take it into my local store for repairs but I'm looking at the possibility that I will have to purchase a new GPU so I'm looking for people's opinions on what cards I should consider. I was pretty satisfied with the performance of my 980ti and I'm not looking to spend a fortune as I already had to replace some other broken hardware recently. This is my current build for reference. Thanks.
  14. I am looking for a USB Type-C hub to get for Christmas for my brother. I am having difficulty finding one with all of the features he would need. Does anyone know a good USB-C hub that includes HDMI 4k@60hz, an Ethernet port, USB 3.0 and a SD card port? Thanks! Edit: Yes, this is for use with a Thunderbolt 3 port
