Senzelian got a reaction from Techstorm970 in I'm still mad… but buy it anyway - RTX 3060 Review
I'm so f*cked if my GTX 1080 dies.

Apparently you can try to stream the audio from your PC to your phone using Soundwire
But to be honest I suggest you simply buy a USB bluetooth dongle. They are quite cheap.

But are you surprised that people trust Apple (or any other company for that matter)? I hope not.
It doesn't matter who f*cks you; we're all being f*cked, but we should be aware of how hard we're being f*cked and from time to time decide to be f*cked by someone else.
Senzelian got a reaction from thechinchinsong in SSUPD Meshlicious
SSUPD the makers of ... uh... nothing? ,which is a collaboration of FormD and LianLi, released a new and quite interesting small form factor case for pre-order.
With only 14.6 liters in size it's one of the smallest ITX cases, but is still quite a bit larger than the Louqe Ghost S1 and the DanCase.
The differentiating factor between these cases and the Meshlicious is, as the name suggests, that it offers all sidepanels to be made out of mesh.
Rough translation: "It offers up to two 140mm fan mounts in the front of the case. Additionally you can mount a 280mm radiator, even if a long graphics card is in place."
Rough translation: "The case can currently only be pre-ordered on Newegg for $119 for the base-model. A version with a PCI-e 4.0 riser cable can be had for $180."
Something that bothered me about my Ghost S1, is that the mesh barely leaves room for the components to breath.
One concern is noise tho.

(Note: I wrote this article quite quickly at work. Hopefully this is fine. I was simply quite excited about this one, so I had to share it quickly!)

To note: this case has been in development since August, and review samples have bene around since December. SSUPD is a collaboration between Lain Li and FormD (who made the Sidearm T1)

It would work if you set the BIOS so that the computer wakes after powerloss.
But power cycling a PSU that often isnt the best for them! Nor for your electricty-net.
Personally i wouldve gone with the simple cable, if anything is wrong its easy to identify.
Also if the cable has to much resistance, you could always just hook up a relay on the PC side and run 12V trough the cable. Which in my experience for low-powered switching stuff can run like 100meter on ethernet cable before its gonna act weird... (Maybe even more i've not tried)

I have used starpup button. I have a 50cm cable with a button at the other and. So when i press the button the pc starts up.
Also i have seen remote pc starters that work with USB 3.
SilverStone ES02 works with 9 pin USB
your remote controller works with PCI slot

Hmmm, wake on lan can actually turn on a pc from standby, so as long as you didn't turn off the PSU it would still work, I've done so with many computers.
Otherwise, wire up an esp8266 + transistor into the mobo's power pins and have it wifi enabled.

I use PiKVM for my home lab, extremely slick project-- it's a remote management IPMI type platform you can build for around $90 all-in.
It has instructions for ATX power control using a breadboard, but I haven't bothered as I leave my servers powered all the time.

The long ass cable idea is probably the best.
Wouldn't be a problem to source the wiring - I can get that from work. Or maybe I'll use a Cat.3 cable, just to make it look nice. Then I would also have two additional wires for the LED. Yeah I think that sounds good...
Edit: lol, if I use Cat.3 I could patch it into my existing patchpanel. Wouldn't even need to run a wire since I have an additional RJ45 keystone jack open here. 😶
Or maybe the stick? The stick is very tempting!
Senzelian reacted to IanCutress in Linus was right.
Just to add this in, as it wasn't included in the video.
AMD's ECC for Ryzen is not POR (plan of record), which means it isn't post validated. A system can very well say it's running ECC, and it'll show in the options that ECC is running, but that doesn't actually tell you if ECC is enabled. The only way to truly see if it's enabled is to force a bit-flip and see if it catches it.
I responded to Torvalds' thread on RWT with this info at the time.
Secondary, DDR5 has ECC per chip, not per module. It's quite a different and important distinction designed mostly for the memory cell reliability than correcting errors. Most DDR5 for consumers will be non-ECC, and ECC variants of DDR5 still require that 9th chip to enable true SECDED support.

backing the "really long wire" idea, if you're capable of sourcing a long wire, a button, and a header, and then to make the 4 related solder joints.
there is no 'practical' limit to the length of the cable going to your power button (and power LED for that matter).
i'm probably way overengineering this, but i'd probably just 3D print a pcie slot cover with space for a pin header, make a splitter cable for the front header (you know, so that the case's features still work as well), and then just run a long ass cable from that header to the desk, and mount a fancy backlit power button there.
me being me, i'd add in the vareous power rails, probably front audio as well, and maybe some gimmicks like RGB...
