  1. Just awful... idk why I tortured myself with this. If he said "CPU Brain" one more time...........................

    The whole ghost nuc premise is completely cursed.

    Ugh.... poor value, poor "upgrade path" since if it bombs, it'll likely be the only one.... "next unit of computing" launching in two months using a year+ old CPU....

    I cannot say enough negative things about this lol....

      I think they just mean they were allowed to have in in house because Intel knows they have no idea how to extract any info that might make them look bad.

      Everyone else only got to fondle it under supervision.

  2. Needed a longer sad boy (IEC-320-C19) cable for my AX1600i.

      why is the cable different?

    2. Den-Fi

      Den-Fi

      IEC-320-C19 is rated for higher current, so that is my assumption as to why.

      seems more disappointed than sad 🤔

  3. The questions are what are you using now? Is it holding you back from doing something? How quickly do you need to resolve that if that's the case? Something better is always on the horizon. Just kind of matter what your needs are right now and how quickly you need them met.
  4. Alright, I feel better now.

      @Lurick How was your experience with dual loops? Any reason not to do it?

    4. Lurick

      Lurick

      Dual loops are great for the most part, the only downside is extra expenses for double everything but you can run the fans much slower/quieter

  5. WHYYYYY. I JUST WANT A NEW CASE.

    JUST RELEASE THE CASES FROM CES ALREADY.

    I DON'T WANNA USE THE O11 XL....

      @TVwazhere It's a little on the large size, so I'd be too tempted to put a 2nd system in it to fill the space. Which sounds like too much work.  Either way I just want an E-ATX mesh case.

      @TVwazhere What do you think the odds are that I can order the 719 now, then swap the front when the II Pro comes out?

    4. TVwazhere

      TVwazhere

      I would say odds are pretty good but I'm not 100% sure. The cases with the same frame have had swapable panels in the past (P400 series, theoretically the P300 series will do this too) so the likely-hood is actually pretty good. I would expect the Pro II to release in March/April based on the Announce/Release cycle of the P400A, but we will see.

  6. Yay! I can tax my GPU & CPU at the same time again (overclocked)!

    Not to mention not having any worries when I add the 2nd 2080 Ti.

  7. Yikes.... $2300 for a 1900X, 16GB 2933, 250GB NVMe, RX550, and a 1300 watt PSU.

    https://system76.com/desktops/thelio-major-r1/configure

     

    $900 for a 2200G, 8GB 3200, 120GB SATA SSD, no dGPU, and a 450 watt PSU.

    https://system76.com/desktops/thelio-r1/configure

     

    Watched a couple of videos on the custom case design... but man that pricing is rough. I wonder if they move a decent number of these at this pricing.

    Even the pricing on their re-branded Intel NUCs is violent.

     

    Perhaps they have the greatest customer support on earth and need to charge this much to keep it up... but ummm. Ouch.

    They look nice though.

      Yeah. I get that, I guess I just don't have enough info on what made them do that in the first place. Was the interest there?

      Just basically thinking out loud.

       

      I mean in every hobby I'm in, low volume stuff is expensive, but great lengths were gone through to make sure there was a market.

      Who knows, maybe they sell a ton and I'm way off base.

      Some interest in boutique Linux machines exists, there are people who either need or really want to use Linux but can't bother figuring out potential driver issues and kernel bugs on their machines - System76 is one of the few companies that will guarantee compatibility and support for Linux on all their machines and actually offers some really powerful computers. It's kind of like Apple, where people are willing to pay more (sometimes a lot more) for the sake of having it "just work" (even though that's not always actually the case and Apple definitely has all the production power they need to shave down those costs significantly).

    4. Den-Fi

      Den-Fi

      Ah, there we go. That's what I was looking for.

      The boutique hardware angle isn't enough to justify it, but that kind of system level support is invaluable if that's the case.

      That's what should be plastered all over the front page. The deep software integration to back up the hardware pricing. Instead it's the smallest possible square on the bottom of the page.

  8. As monstrous as this PSU is, the power switch is entirely too small.... sigh.

    Guess I'm spoiled by the one on the HX1200i.

      There is a satisfying feeling when a larger switch gets flipped

    3. Spotty

      Spotty

      We all know you need a big switch so you can easily turn it on with the 10ft pole you use to avoid touching things that don't have ASUS ROG branding.

    4. Den-Fi

      Den-Fi

      I'm actually not super fond of ROG branding lol.

      But it's better than the gaudy gears on my Taichi board.

  9. I'm assuming you have Trident-Z RAM? If so, that uses Aura for lighting control. http://www.gskill.us/forum/forum/product-discussion/ddr4/trident-z-rgb/161217-trident-z-rgb-software-clean-uninstall-guide-for-v1-06-68

      @Den-Fi plugging your M.2 SSD into SATA power will limit you to 12 volts per second.

  13. The DIMM.2 module is strictly to make it easier to install M.2 drives. It has nothing to do with RAM.
  14. Task manager isn't an accurate way to keep track of clock speed. Something like HWInfo would be better suited.
  15. All signs point to you needing HEDT. Even on HEDT it's a pain in the butt to get working, so I couldn't imagine trying to overcome all the X570 headaches. The Aorus Xtreme is XL-ATX, not EATX. I don't see that support listed on the Tower 900, so that might be why it's being flagged. Might block something important.
