    Billy_Mays got a reaction from HeyLittleBitty in 500gb WD external HDD not recognized   
    It might be because windows doesn’t recognize the storage type. Did you check disk management? Sometimes a hard drive won’t show up in windows because it’s not initialized for windows.

    Billy_Mays got a reaction from Gozaru in SSD: SATA to USB cable   
    I don’t know Mac that well, but I don’t think that is possible. It isn’t possible in Windows or it’s slow, and it would be limited to either the USB 2.0 speeds or 3.0 speeds.

    Billy_Mays got a reaction from Eric06 in Is an RX 580 worth it?   
    230 is pretty low or it’s common price nowadays, check what model and what it was used for. And is it a 4gb of 8gb? What games do you play?

    Cheers  hope it's its worth it!
     
    Spent the day working on a new idea, still not sure if i'll go with this style of panel or maybe change it to a clear one to work better with the Tail design.   Anyways this was just a test with some scrap 2mm white to see if the custom jig will work. Very happy with the first results and i'm sure i can clean it up better and straighter with a few more tries.     The Jig's up! I had thought of setting up for some vacuum forming... but for a one off idea that i may not use.... it wasn't worth the time.         The end result of the Jig is to make this!   A fully moulded internal panel.         The making of the jig was pretty simple and ive use threaded rod to allow me to adjust height and even angle if need be.   Ruff cut on the saw then edges routed clean and straight. Then bolted to a  base. With a centre threaded rod for alignment and tension.                     A small press plate is made. Small as all i want to be seen inside the case is the CPU water block. The Heart of Disco Scorp.   As can be seen everything is set so the cpu will be dead centre of the case.         Threaded bar allows for more of less height adjustmeant         The make a panel some plex is centre hole drilled and laid onto the top of the jig. For the first test this is just a scrap piece.             Next an outer ring is clamped to hold the plex and stop it distorting while worked.   Heat can be applied using a hot air gun.         Once softened the the centre press plate can be slid on and adjusted down using a nut on the threaded rod,     I found the best way was to heat tension heat tension you can feel when to stop and add heat again.             when at the desired height/depth allow to cool and remove the nut and press plate.        \               Pretty perfect fit for a first go,         As you can see once fully sealed this will create a full rear chamber to duct air thru the working part of the case.    Hopefully be sexy and functional..... and Disco!       Still playing with lighting ideas

    Generated by PCPartPicker 2017-11-07 21:32 EST-0500     GPU is much better, CPU is maybe slightly worse, but overclockable, cheaper, and still not a bottleneck.  next upgrade when you have the money would most likely be another 8GB of RAM
