    The problem is if you're scanning A3 size paper you'll need a wide format scanner which is isn't compact or cheap.  If you don't mind buying used I'd look for something like a Mustek A3 2400S.

    johnny5c got a reaction from BiotechBen in I can feel slight electricity from my pc case screws, what could be the cause?   
    Does your 3-prong to 2-prong adapter have a tab with a hole on the 2-prong end?  If it does it's possible to ground it through the outlet cover plate screw.  In the US most older homes with 2-prong outlets have grounded metal boxes that uses the BX cable's metal conduit to establish a ground back to the breaker/fuse panel.

    johnny5c got a reaction from NZgamer in Help with Optiplex 9010 SFF PSU.   
    Actually I can verify that it will work just fine with the 240w stock PSU, I have a Optiplex with a i7 3770 at work and been running a low profile MSI 1050 Ti for a couple years now.

    johnny5c got a reaction from alex75871 in HDMI patch cable incompatibility?   
    I just ran into the same problem when I upgraded my parent's projector, they built their house with a home theater in 2005 when HDMI 1.2 was the standard.  I replaced the original Sony 1080p projector with a new 4K model and the exact same issue happened, regular HD worked fine but the second you enabled HDR it went blank.  I have a new temporary 2.0 cable running from the A/V rack to the projector and everything works but going to have to replace the in-wall run sometime this winter.

    Our local Sheriff and his partner do a weekly live stream using a iPhone facing out the front of their patrol car.  They're currently using a basic phone mount with window suction cups and the footage gets a little choppy especially during high speed chases.  A group of us local business owners are chipping in to upgrade their phone and at the same time I'm trying to find a better mounting solution like a powered gimble or other shock suppressing mount.  Thanks in advance for any help.

    johnny5c reacted to dilpickle in Weird Front Panel USB Connectors   
    Uh no. These have to be wired the right way. They are carrying voltage and data to the USB ports.
     
    @lexusgamer05 those are 2 separate USB ports. Notice how they are labeled with 1 and 2. All of the pictures show the same thing they are just named slightly differently. Don't worry about the colors. The pin labeled VCC is the 5V. Then you have a positive and a negative and a ground. The left side of the connector is where you would plug all the 1 pins and the right side for all the 2 pins.
     
    This is actually a little easier than my first case with front panel where all 8 pins were completely separate...

    Hardware wise you're good but do you really need a 3080, what monitor do you have?

    For that length I would go with a 14AWG over the 18AWG power cable you linked,

    You're welcome.  I have one in my Silverstone HTPC case and it and it's about the best one under 120mm, just make sure it will clear your RAM.

    Shure 215, I have a pair and would recommend them for your budget.  Add a pair of their triple flange sleeves if you want more isolation.

    johnny5c got a reaction from nootnoot1277 in How to calculate PSU load?   
    I had a XP 2800 and a Radeon 9250 in mine and the included 220 watt PSU was stable but ran hot and only lasted a few months.  I upgraded to a 300 watt unit and it ran 24/7 for years as a DVR with a WinTV card.

    johnny5c got a reaction from nootnoot1277 in How to calculate PSU load?   
    I had almost a identical setup with a Shuttle bare bones for my first HTPC and you're probably pretty close on your calculation but because the Flex ATX PSUs have such horrible cooling I would go with a 300 watt unit.

    johnny5c got a reaction from Minorika in what intstruments can i plug into a scarlet solo?   
    Basically anything.  The switch for that input has two settings, use "Instrument" for un-powered sources like a guitar and the "Line" setting for stuff like keyboards and drum machines.

    johnny5c reacted to SkyHound0202 in Can you put this ram in other computers?   
    No. They are Registered Memory kit that are intended to be used on a specific vendor's system.

    johnny5c reacted to Jarsky in Can you put this ram in other computers?   
    Registered memory doesnt mean it can only be used on that Vendor, but it has an extra buffer chip which means it can only be used on a board that has ECC RDIMM support. 
     
    Things you need to be careful about when looking at server memory:
    - Is it Registered (RDIMM), does your board support RDIMM
    - Is it ECC, does your board support ECC
    - What is the Ranking of the memory e.g 1R, 2R, 4R and does your motherboard support that ranking
     
     
    Most server & workstation motherboards support ECC, very few consumer motherboards do. 
    Most high end servers support RDIMM (Reg), workstation & consumer motherboards basically dont. 
    Most servers support up to 2R or 4R memory, generally consumer boards support 1R or 2R...but you typically cant mix them otherwise multi channel won't work. 
     
    Always consult the manual for the board to see what it supports.

    Your 5700 XT has 5v addressable LEDs while the headers on your motherboard only support 12v standard LEDs so unfortunately it won't work.

    I've been using that one for years and it works fine.  
     
    The one he linked is a active adapter, the wii's multi AV connector has both +5V and +12V pins so it's powered by the console.
