  1. Yeah, case looks very very similar to the Cougar QBX, looks like they just updates some things on it.
  2. I noticed with mine it only works properly if I have my laptop off, then plug in the eGPU, then turn the laptop on. Sometimes I even had to disable the built in MX150 to get it working properly as well. Although I barely use this setup anymore as the Aorus gaming boxes seem to be so finicky that it's almost always a bad experience.
  3. I did get OpenVPN working in an AWS instance, however I never used it for anything really. Typically now if we have a customer that needs remote access through a VPN we use Contemporary Control's Remote VPN service.
  4. Teamviewer is alright, but might eventually ask you for money. I think you can do remote access with Parsec as well, that might be an option?
  5. I mean, can you afford to be out $25 bucks if it ends up being really dead? If so, then yeah buy it. If it's going to ruin your whole day / month to spend $25 on something that is broken, then don't do it.
  6. Check it out dudes, managed to snag a hard top for my 92 Miata, and for a "decent" price as well. Probably doubled the value of the car. But, shes come a long way since when I bought it back in April or March!
  7. Okay I fixed it I'm just a moron. The plug from the Magsafe connector to the logic board was plugged 90% of the way in, which I guess is enough for the computer to run off the power brick, but that last 10% gets you battery charging.
  8. Yes it's the genuine iFixIt battery, which says that it's like, an actual apple made battery on it I'm pretty sure Maybe I was just doing it wrong? When I hold those keys it immediately turns on when I release the power button, is it supposed to do that?
  9. Alright so I just replaced the battery in my girlfriends MBP using the iFixIt kit. Everything went well and the battery worked, however now it's not charging? The first time I noticed it wasn't charging I realized I forgot to replug in the connector under the logic board by the magsafe port so I took it apart again and plugged it back in. I had her discharge the battery like iFixIt says to, then we plugged it in. No light on the charger at all, and the charging indicator in OSX just said it was running off the power adapter. I tried doing the SMC reset by doing the shif
  10. Alright first update after getting back from vacation: Threw in some old parts I had, an ITX Z77 motherboard, a Xeon 1231v3, 16GB RAM, and a 512GB SSD along with my old GTX 970. Unfortunately it only came with 1 of the 2 orange LED fans that work with the special LED controller at the back of the case. Going to have to find a 200mm fan that will fit this side panel as well, which I'm sure will be fun! I remember having a red LED Cooler Master 200mm fan in there back in college, I'll probably look for one of those to keep with the theme of the build. First mo
  11. I don't remember having too many dust issues with it in the past, but I don't think I was as concerned with dust back then as I might be these days. I do think the mesh side panel should make a return on modern cases though
  12. Hey guys, after what ended up being literal years of searching, I was finally able to find someone near by selling an NZXT Vulcan case. Personally I have a bit of a soft spot for this case as it's the one I took too and from my college dorm most of the time I was there. I foolishly sold that PC while I was in college and always regretted it after since I thought this was such a cool case. First post is just the case, however I hope to get a nice build going in here and maybe so some people how cool a case like this can be.
