  1. Outside of fixing it properly internally (again, by soldering a wire from the headphone jack to a good ground point on the board or chassis) there isn't much you can do.
  2. Those temps seem normal and aren't anything to worry about. Also, please leave text colour on default. It's really hard to see on night theme.
  3. I don't think DirectX would cause this. What games? Can you try reinstalling Windows and/or GPU drivers?
  4. You could solder one end of a wire to the rear IO, then have an eye loop on the other end that you put a case screw through. What case and mobo do you have?
  5. I mostly know Logitech mice so I might be wrong, but iirc the Sabre is similar to the M65, and the Nightsword is an updated M65, or at least has a similar shape. https://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Nightsword-Performance-Tunable-Backlit/dp/B07QX9C9WH/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=corsair+m65&qid=1606679048&sr=8-1 The Ironclaw also seems to be a similar size, shape, and price.
  6. Are you buying a new rig? What is your budget? Minecraft servers basically only care about single core performance, so just get 16GB of RAM, at least a terabyte of storage, and the CPU with the fastest single core performance you can fit in your budget.
  7. You can also use 2x3x3mm rectangular LEDs (or something like that) but you might have to sand one edge depending on what keycaps you use.
  8. 3mm flangeless LEDs. No idea about colour, gonna have to search for that yourself.
  9. I would at least consider a SFF one, but if you can't even do that, Thinkpad P17.
  10. Is this a legitimate request or just a shitpost? If you actually want a system, what is your budget, and what are you going to be doing with it? If you don't care about portability, why not get a desktop?
  11. RAM can die overtime. It is extremely uncommon for a motherboard to degrade overtime, and I've never heard of that causing the problem you're experiencing. Do you have a kit of two sticks of identical RAM you can test with?
  12. There is likely an incompatability between the RAM sticks. I'm not jumping to a conclusion. You literally came to it yourself, then threw it to the side and claimed the motherboard is broken.
  13. Singleplayer is decent, Online is trash.
  14. Where did you hear this? It's bullshit lol. All of this as well as your OS/program crashes indicate faulty RAM. I'm honestly not sure how you came to the conclusion that it was the motherboard.
