    Laputacake reacted to The Flying Sloth in Adding a passive subwoofer to stereo amp   
    Yes it's possible though you wouldn't have direct volume controls on the speaker vs subwoofer ratio, what you're missing isn't your class A amp it's the lack of detail in those $10 class D single board amps.

    Personally, I'd split the input signal, send it through the TPA for sub and class A for stereo, best of both worlds.

    I'd check out the season focus series as well. 650w should be optimal for reaching peak efficiency i think maths is hard.

    I manged to install windows 10 on the 500gb SSD.
     
    They way I did it:
    I downloaded the oldest windows 10 version I could find.
    Did some tinkering with the MBR (Master Boot Record).
    Started a custom windows 10 installtion (waited for at least 2 hours for it to reach to screen where I could pick which drive I wanted to install it on). 
    Installation gave an error 2 times.
    The third time it did install correctly and is now working a 100%.
    I only have to do the updates for the last 2 years with MediaCreationTool.exe (from the Microsoft website)
     
    Thanks for all your help yesterday, really appreciated your commitment helping me ❤️

    Stop using diskpart. Just wipe them completly as if they're new. Don't even format them and try to get to windows setup and go on custom and windows will do all that.

    No boot device because it has no windows installed. In windows setups does the drive appear?

    You said you were using PS so assumed you were able to use windows with another drive. If it doesn't show in the bios its either not installed correctly or DOA

    The extra voltage that DDR3 needs reducing the lifespan of the cpu(memory controller).
     
    Correct skylake had a flaw that allowed you to overclock the BLCK. Kaby lake you cannot.

    Why not just wait? Or just use an old used system that won't devalue much.

    I'd say the opposite aha. Nothing wrong with it the D3H is just a bit better.

    Laputacake got a reaction from XR6 in Decent Z68 Motherboard   
    I'd go with the D3H

    The UD3 is probably the best of the bunch. For suggestions? The best would probably be a z77 board.
     
    The absolute best are the ASUS Maximus V EXTREME or the GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UP7

    I have a monitor that does the same when switched off, also an LG panel and it's fine in use and I've never been bothered by it so personally I'd go for it

    I wouldn't use any sort of calculator like that. It will depend on the game and with that sort of CPU you needn't worry about anything.

    I also dislike mecha anime.
    Gurren Lagann proved to be entertaining enough to make me forget the mecha.
    So yes, it is good.
