    Really interested by server stuff, would consider myself a budget enthusiast considering I'm at least still on the X99 Chipset with an nvme boot drive and a gtx 1080, would like to be able to move from using intel rapid storage technology to a real raid card with more drives as well as getting a xeon and some ECC ram. Other than that I really like space and the UFC.
  • Biography
    Got into computers around late 2015-early 2016. Had been wanting to build a pc as some of my friends had and it looked cool. I had been working in computer sales at Best Buy and eventually just got all the parts I needed. Since then I have found a new love for computers and I am currently working towards a degree in electrical engineering, I am also minoring in nuclear engineering and math.

  1. Yeah I am heavily considering just turning it into a dedicated macro board as right now I use the six macro keys on it for work a lot and having more would be pretty chill
  2. Cherry MX Browns, out of all the key switches I have tried so far they seem to be the best balance between noise and feel. I did not opt for any o-ring dampeners on it but I may try them out in the future
  3. Well I finally did it, I ordered a custom keyboard from none other than WASDkeyboards. This is the design I made I went with the classic font and the classic media keys with symbols and the old windows logo. I wanted it to have a retro feel but with a semi modern color scheme. I went with the subtle purple as I typically set all the rgb lights on my pc to purple as well as my mouse. I went through several designs were I went too hard on trying to make the keyboard seem functional and they all just looked too busy and not very clean. I found this was a good balance as the modifiers stand out just enough to make them easy to differentiate but not so much it distracts. Can't wait to see this thing in person. Not sure what I will do with my current keyboard tho (K95 platinum)
  4. I would still check for driver or bios updates. It is the easiest thing to try and doesn't take much time, I have seen that fix so many weird issues that it is definitely worth a shot
  5. I would check for any driver updates or bios updates for the motherboard
  6. This is true but if I sell it that isn't really my problem anymore. I know the person who I got the 2017 model from so I could get it from them if needed, and if whoever buys my 2018 asks for proof of purchase in the future I will provide it for them, otherwise not really my problem anymore
  7. I mean that has been true of every butterfly switch they have made, ever since the 2015 macbook and the 2016 macbook pros up until the 2019 macbook pros. The good thing is apple offers free keyboard repair on any device with butterfly switches as long as it is within 4 years of the purchase date
  8. Awesome build! if you are anything like me this will lead to more builds in the future and a newfound love for tech. It's always awesome to see people build their first pc and hear they had a good time
  9. It couldn't hurt, my guess it depends on how much voltage is being pushed through those chips and how much airflow is naturally going over them. If you could do some temperature tests without the heatsinks and the temps aren't outrageous you are probably fine
  10. What a cool small form factor build. Very interesting case and power supply
  11. I always go for the better safe than sorry approach, I have transported computers with tower coolers like the hyper 212 evo and not had any issues, however I went maybe 15 miles at most with them. It would probably be fine but personally I would remove it if you are traveling a longer distance
  12. I don't really need all the features or specs on my 2018 model and I would end up with more money if I sell it. I mostly use my laptop for work and school and if I need more powerful hardware for something I have my desktop. I also like the smaller size and better portability of the 13in, I think it meets my needs and wants better
  13. They ended up getting an ipad pro to replace it and had no desire to repair it or use it again. Worked out well for everyone, they got money for something that to them was just a paper weight, I got a new laptop at a great price, and we prevented some e-waste. Now I want to sell my 15in 2018 macbook pro since I really don't need it, hopefully that goes well
  14. So I recently purchased a base model 2017 13 in macbook pro from a friend for $325 since it had a broken LCD. I bought a new display on ebay for about $315 and after about an hour and a half following an ifixit guide I have a working macbook pro. Best part is that they had hardly used it before it broke, none of the liquid indicators have been tripped, everything passed in apples MRI diagnostic, and the battery has only 47 charge cycles. Things practically brand new and it only cost me $640 plus some time, they had the charger and everything too. Very pleased with my "new" laptop and just figured I would share with you guys
