  1. I have one of these and I have no complaints. I don't use it a ton but when I need it, it works great. I've used it for my Oculus Rift and sensors as well as for USB 3.0 external drive file transfers on my old X58 system and my AMD A78 system. They also make a version with an internal USB header instead of the extra 2 USB ports. The only thing I'm not in love with is it using SATA for power, but it works fine. EDIT: Not sure if this is what you meant. If you don't mean this, disregard.
  2. You can use checkra1n to jailbreak it. I'm not sure of the exact process though so I'd advise searching for a guide of some sort. As for downgrading, I believe you can't.
  3. Your GPU is dual-slot and the PCIe 1x slot on your board is one slot under your PCIe x16 slot, so a PCIe WiFi card isn't going to fit. You'll have to go USB.
  4. Does anyone have recommendations as far as sleeved PSU extensions go? I'd consider going with custom cables but no one makes them for my PSU. I don't know whether I can trust the random brands on Amazon or not given I'm powering hardware that consumes a lot of power (mostly concerned about my GPU.)

      Personally I havent ventured down this path due to pinouts (and me not understanding them enough to look up how to understand them to look and see if pinned the same).  I tried sleeving...NOT for me, I dont have the dexterity in my nimbly bimbly fingers nor the time.  Maybe someone on this forum could take on side work that is trustworthy?  Or a bunch of research (my thoughts)

  5. The slot is physically X16 but is wired as X8, so you cannot get any more than X8 bandwidth out of it.
  6. I've done this with an 8400GS, didn't have a Dremel though so I hacked at the connector with a pair of side cutters and filed it the rest of the way. Works fine even though that was a dangerous way of doing it. How much is the bandwidth gimped by doing that to it? Theoretically it shouldn't be too bad if that card is PCIe 3.0 compatible, right? Whoops saw where you said it.
  7. Nexus Mods is probably the biggest site out there for game mods, so it's definitely legit in that regard.
  8. Looks like it belongs on a USB 2.0 front panel header. Either of the two 9 pin connectors underneath the bottom PCIe slot's locking tab by the looks of it, the connector is keyed so it fits only one way. They are marked 9 in this diagram.

      oop, no longer riding around in that ps4 '89 volvo 240

      We running Gentoo now boys, It's a lot nicer ui-wise (and I know that I could just change the desktop environment under normal circumstances, but the arch image for ps4 just won't take it because of a bunch of dependencies that brick the image if I get rid of them for altenatives) I tried setting up a Fedora 30 image but I can't get the drivers working and it won't run properly, so Gentoo it is.

  10. The GMMK is a keyboard that is either pre-built or barebones made by PC Gaming Race. If you want something plug and play though, that's totally fair. It's a great keyboard as far as reviews indicate though enthusiasts will probably disagree. If you go that route, there are two versions. MX Speed switches are similar to Cherry MX Reds but with a higher actuation point. There is an optical-mechanical version too which on average should be more reliable/durable to prolonged use than the Cherry MX Speed variant.
  11. Most people prefer linear switches for gaming from what I've seen but go for whatever you prefer. At that budget, I'd suggest building your own but that's nearly impossible on Amazon because a lot of the parts are niche. I like this choice personally. I have a GMMK Compact with Kailh Box Jade switches (kind of similar to MX Blue/Green) and Razer PBT Doubleshot keycaps and I really enjoy it so far. Amazon doesn't have the barebones models except for the Compact, so everything else they have is fully built. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01D8YNJH0/ If you like the 60% class layou
  12. If anyone has a Vega 56 they're interested in selling, I'm interested in buying.

      I too love having no eardrums.

      What are eardrums?

      I'm going to 3D print a bracket to run an Asetek cooler on the card and I may try to make a duct to use the reference blower fan for VRM cooling.

  13. console pleb /s As much as I'm full into PC at this point, the Xbox Series S does look pretty compelling given the price/performance. Maybe if Forza and other Xbox titles I'm interested in were still exclusive, I'd bother. I tried just for shits to preorder the PS5, but Best Buy was a complete mess of a site and I never saw the preorder button.

    It's still crazy to me that George made the transition from internet edgelord memester to legit musician.
