  1. ^ that sounds very expensive. is it possible to just get the most basic cables that are short and relatively thin
  2. Finger-friendly screws (makes upgrades/repairs less hellish) Abolish the optical drive (with exception for a small niche) Make more Mac Pro sized Mini ITX cases Make Micro ATX builds that actually small Narrow vertical tower cases which have small footprint but more room. Modular power supply shrouds (ventilation > looks) More support for SFX power supplies (i.e. mounting bracket w/ grill) Include a wireless charging pad in higher-end cases USB-C ports on the front panel. Modular build-it-yourself case-building kits.
  3. let's say someone wanted to make a build that's overall silent and energy efficient most of the time, but maybe they wanted to do some intense gaming 10% of the time

  5. Cheap G Sync moniotrs?

    i highly doubt it. typically, in marketing, the manufacturer sells to the retailer for double what they paid to make it and then the retailer sells the item for double what they paid the manufacturer for it. i highly doubt an $800 monitor is able to afford retail service, manufacturing, shipping, the monitor itself and a $250 g-sync module.
  6. but all of those suggestions add bulk to the case, meaning there's more hair to straighten
  7. Coffee Lake Build Plan

    1. maybe a 2-3 fps from 2400 to 3200. 2666 Mhz is plenty for an intel, but as I said, if you can OC its a nonissue >3000 isnt needed for intel 2/3. good points
  8. Case Mini ITX so less fans and less cable length is needed. Fans Don't make the mistake I did and get a 6" long splitter. HDMI Cable 2 ft long. Would love the day when (good) wireless display adapters come out. Storage M2 SSD. An external HDD. No SATA cables whatsoever. Power Supply Fully modular. Quality thin and short-length cables exist? What is the best length for MITX power supply cables? Is it possible to get a 24-pin cable that doesn't look like a snake. Video Card PCIE cables are unfortunately attached all the way at the near-end of the card. Any way to fix this? EVGA Powerlink adapter? RGB Lighting Is there a way to do with without using a SATA cable? Is it possible to power a small strip from a USB port? Peripherals I love my 2007 Apple Wireless Keyboard. I use a $10 wireless logitech mouse; should I upgrade for gaming? Are there wireless webcams on the cheap?
  9. Coffee Lake Build Plan

    1) might make 1% difference. memory is OCable anyway. 2) cables suck 3) yeah, 650 w might be cutting it close. at 700+, it will probably run its fans less
  10. Coffee Lake Build Plan

    Looks great. You may be better off with a premium air cooler than a cheap liquid cooler. Check on the power supply's decibel rating before buying. Throw in a Be Quiet Pure Wings 2 140mm case fan (Great investment for $10)

    you dont want to see the back lol
  12. Rate My Cable Management :)

    a lot better than mine
  13. i ordered it. my god is it a piece of f----g shit
  14. Thoughts on build?

    except an optimal cpu choice and optimal rest-of-the-build choice are not mutually exclusive
  15. Thoughts on build?

    the majority of people are better suited with a ryzen 3. if he's editing 4k videos or playing games at >60 fps, definitely go with ryzen 3. but it's still not advisible to pay $100 more, twice as much, in a mid-range build, for a CPU if there's not even a task which the guy does that taxes the ryzen 3
