  1. I bought my current laptop a whole decade ago. HP Pavilion dv6t with a 2nd gen i7-2720qm and 8GB of ram for a whopping $1180. A few years back I slapped an ssd in it and I still use it today, but it's in that stage of life where the mobo doesn't recognize batteries so it's tethered to an AC adapter and blah blah blah. Anyway, I'm starting grad school this fall and need a new laptop. I enjoy the longevity I got out of my current model and am looking for the same this time around. My budget is around the 1200 range again. I'm not looking for a powerhouse (no gaming or video work) but w
  2. Due to too much pain, I am in the market for an ergonomic keyboard for work. The catch: it cannot require dedicated software to run. It must be 100% plug and play. Recommendations? I’ve heard good things about the Microsoft Sculpt.
  3. Wow yes this is a great LMGTFY... I've already looked there. I posted this thread in case there might be any outliers someone may know of that aren't listed on PC Fart Licker.
  4. As the title says, I'm looking for a 1080p, 23" display. I do not care about color accuracy, refresh rate (60Hz is plenty for me) or response time. My only requirements are as follows: 1. 23" 2. 1080p 3. HDMI or DP in. 4. IPS 5. VESA mounting. The cheapest option will likely win the honor of being displays number 4 and 5 for my setup. PS: If necessary, I am willing to delve into the used market, but I'd prefer the two at least be matching.

    PAPER 3080?!

    Sneaky almost got me. <link removed by moderation>
  6. Hey Sanvator! I'm so sorry you're dealing with this. Can we get a full spec list for this PC? Also, do your motherboard show you any post codes?
  7. This is precisely why I'm thinking of adding a second one that will simply play the "coin" sound from Super Mario World.
  8. Since my PC lays sideways in my rack I thought I’d add a new power button. I used stepping bits to get the hole to the perfect size to screw in the button’s shaft and wired it up to a spare set of power sw and power led wires I had laying around. Looks great and had a very satisfying click.
  9. If you modify it to have HS5s instead it HS7s, and swap the interface for something with optical in, you’ll save money and get a good result still. Or dump the sub and get HS8s and you’ll lower your cost significantly.
  10. FTFY. And no. Just the plastic shrouds. The hardware itself is fine.
  11. Uhhhhh…. you might want to go back and read my post and then edit your response. No, I absolutely did not put whole components in the oven. I swear, some of you aren't that bright (says the one who put plastic in the oven).
  12. Long story short I need the shroud for an Asus X99-Pro. Does anybody happen to have one of these old boards they'd be willing to part with? Or even part out? I literally just need that plastic shroud. Bounty: $30 USD plus shipping.
  13. To at least closely match the chipset heatsink above it. Any recommendations? Also looking around myself.
  14. Update: I’m doing the thing
