  1. I have an older PC with the linked PSU that just burned out (bridged the power button pins to test, it does a pulse and shuts down just like when it's plugged in). I'm looking to replace it quickly with another modular or semi-modular one so I don't have to replug cables, and I wanted to confirm that Antec hasn't changed the pinout on their modular PSU's since this one was made before driving out and getting one so I can just slide a new one in, plug the PSU ends in, and boot it up. https://www.newegg.com/p/N82E16817103940 (Antec Neo Power 500)
  2. Thanks! I saw a lot of people suggesting it between here and PCPP, so I figured there was something wrong with it that I didn't know about. IMO OCing isn't a great idea at this price point because for the $20 extra you could almost just buy a better chip, and there's cooling to take into account, etc. I combined parts from a lot of suggestions (thanks for the 1050ti, btw, I didn't think I could fit one in the build) to come up with this build: PCPartPicker part list: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/Q4yN4C Price breakdown by merchant: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/Q4yN4C/by_merchant
  3. Thanks! I didn't actually find that one, though I had a good laugh at "mechanical feeling."
  4. No need to OC, I don't think it's really missing any essential features, saves $20. I haven't really looked at parts since skylake was new, so I don't know the new stuff too well, does the A320 chipset have some problem?
  5. A friend wanted to build a PC for CS:GO, Overwatch, and maybe some light video/audio editing. I went with the zen chap for the last two, adn because a GPU upgrade down the line is a lot easier than a CPU. The rx 460 because it can easily run OW and CS:GO at 60+ FPS (like 200 in CS because that is one easy game to run). The total budget was $650 including a monitor. A 250gb SSD because it's really only going to have a few programs and not too many large files. Fast RAM because it's pretty much the same price as slower stuff and Zen likes it, a good PSU, and cheapest of the cheap motherboard/cas
  6. So, uh, I didn't think of this. It's a year and a half later, but it helped someone at least. I'm surprised I remembered my password for LTT forums.
  7. Unless the laptop is made to be upgraded with a backlit keyboard (never seen one) it's not happening.
  8. If more people buy red then more red will be produced and price will drop b/c economies of scale, but I doubt that's the reason. I think it's more along the lines of the answer above me:
  9. Hah like I'd buy that! Seems too fake. Real SSNs are more like 123-45-6789
  10. Hey, I'd rather have the SSN. Can I have your SSN?
  11. I think some manufacturers use that symbol for always on (unless all USB ports do that and I'm dumb) so you can close it and keep charging.
  12. I doubt it. Seems to be software if none of the USB ports you have are working.
  13. Try the keyboard in another computer. If it works it's your computer, if it doesn't it's the keyboard.
  14. SSDs actually have a limited number of writes they can take, but it goes well into petabytes for even small ones (this was tested by tech report writing to them 24/7 for well over a year, maybe two, after which they could still read from them) so unless you're using it for something really intense you're fine. I've seen HDDs that are well over a decade old and still working, so unless you're looking to use them in some insanely edge case the answer to both is long enough.
