  1. Unfortunately, I am going more for the degree of aesthetics. Do you not recommend soldering the connectors because soldering itself is more difficult?
  2. I'm unable to run Apex at 144fps consistently even with an i5-9600k, 8GB DDR4 at 2400MHZ and with a 1060 3GB. While the GPU you'd be choosing might help out your PC, your other hardware is likely to hold back a lot of the available performance the newer GPU's could offer.
  3. Have you tried booting the GPU from another PC? The GPU could be the issue regardless of how new it is. I've had to return multiple GPU's over the years because of DOA.
  4. Is there a budget reason why you are going for some older hardware? I'd recommend saving more or buying lower end priced current generation parts that way you can at least have the ability to more openly upgrade over the next few years.
  5. Would the glue and say a heat shrink tubing work similarly or am I thinking about it the wrong way?
  6. I've never a made a USB-C cable before, but I'm looking forward to the challenge. There are plenty of different tips for soldering irons and diameters of solder that could make it easier given some patience.
  7. Looks perfect, could the quality be lesser though based on the price or is that price for the male and female connectors in that state generally the same?
  8. I know, I'm looking to challenge myself a little.
  9. Recently I have really gotten into building custom keyboards. I have begin to think that the next step is to make my own braided cable. Anyone have brands or methods they'd recommend for buying semi bulk USB-C cable?
  10. In short, I have a EVGA SuperNova G2 550w(80+ GOLD) that I'd like to pair with a new 5700 XT GPU. Right now I have a i5 - 9600k(not overclocked) w/ a 1060 3GB which wattage wise seems to be fine. I saw that the 5700 XT recommends a 600w PSU but I know that can sometimes differ with other hardware being used as well quality of PSU. Would I run into issues with that PSU and GPU config? Should heat also be a concern of mine regarding the 5700 XT? Proposed system specs: Intel i5 - 9600k(not overclocked but on turbo) Corsair H60 AIO 32GB Corsair DDR4, 3000Mhz(not overclocked) Samsung 970 EVO M.2, 1TB & GIGABYTE Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB, Triple fans
  11. Also once you choos a particular architecture to develop from, it's a lot harder to spread out to other architectures. Be it x86 to arm or vice versa. Rules always makes things more difficult for dev

  13. If it turns out to have as much capability as they hope, it could be a game changer for both the commercial and consumer market I think
  14. I didn't know that they were already that far along in development ? Got a link for a dev board?
  15. There has been a lot of talk about the limitations of x86 or ARM as a format. RISC-V supposedly wants to make a more universally accepted architecture with the implementations of an open license. Thoughts? ---------------- I'm just now hearing about RISC-V ? This is the vid that got me interested but you know how the internet works, take it like a grain of salt

  17. The lower the rpm could make your system more hot as you increase your workload. You could get some rubber fan fasteners too instead of using screws to avoid a rattle when keeping your fans in place.
  18. Asus ZenBooks are pretty fairly priced. They have a lot of storage space, dedicated graphics cards, and a ton of RAM. You may have to check in on the quality of the display though.
  19. Do you have another system that you could test the PSU in?
  20. Have you tried just restarting your PC?
