    Velcade reacted to LinusTech in LTTstore, no stock for over a month   
    See, you might THINK allowing pre-orders or stock reservation would improve the customer experience, but imagine how angry the OP would be if we actually had his/her money. See the problem?
     
    Reservations wouldn't necessarily require taking their money, but they're also extremely vulnerable to spam, so there's really no point. I might as well just send out a tweet and ask who wants to buy it.
     
    We could put an ETA, but honestly I'd rather not commit. It's far better to say nothing official (WAN Show estimates are more like "between us girls") and have it arrive eventually and say "yay they're here" than to have an ETA and have a thousand people email you that day asking why the hell they're not here. 
     
    We had no way of knowing how many units we'd sell. Now we have some idea. So that's good, but we're still learning. We've had a web shop for only a couple years, and it's been a key part of our business for only a year. There's a steep learning curve.
     
    Thanks for your feedback though 🙂

    You don't just die.  The hospital has to take care of you, then they'll write it off.

    Hate to say this but
     
    You die, usually (or just live with whatever happens to you). People who are impoverished have to try their hardest to not get sick. They won't call ambulances when they're in danger because they won't recover financially from the bill.

    Not sure what country you live in but grab one of these, for your outlet type, and confirm your outlets are wired properly. 
     
    If they are it could be a psu issue.

    Yes what you're looking for is the dots to display (from left to right) red red nothing
     
    If the outlet is grounded properly it would lead to a PSU issue.

    Velcade reacted to extra8 in Optiplex 7010/9010 Front I/O panel pinout   
    This thread describes the issues with installing an Optiplex 7010/9010 motherboard into a 3rd party ATX case. There is another thread for the Optiplex 7010 power switch and power LED pinout.
    Optiplex 7010 power switch
     
    I have observed if the front I/O cable is detached from the motherboard, there is an 'Alert! Front I/O Cable failure.' error message when booting up the PC. The F1 key must be pressed to continue.  I thought I would investigate what causes this and other 'Alert!' messages.
     
    The Optiplex 7010 and 9010 (I have both) appear to use virtually the same motherboard in the mini tower (MT) variant.  The key difference is 9010 has BIOS support RAID.  The Precision T1650 looks very similar and also supports ECC RAM - it is also offered with Xeon e3-1200v2 family of processors, the fastest being the i3-1290v2.   The fastest Dell certified processor for the 7010/9010 is the i7-3770.  However, the e3-1230 v2 Xeon processor is apparently known to work in the 7010 too according to one Youtube video posted back in 2015.
     
    The Front I/O socket on the motherboard is smaller than normal. It appears the pins have a 2mm pitch instead of the typical 0.1" (2.54mm) pitch too.  
     
     
    Update (30 Oct 2018):  I've since discovered a post on reddit created by 'BlastingKap' two months earlier, who had also examined the Front I/O pinout on an Optiplex 7010:
    https://www.reddit.com/r/buildapc/comments/98y8x2/optiplex_7010_9010_motherboard_transplanting/
     
    Update (28 Apr 2019):  I also came across this youtube video
    https://youtu.be/Bz6s4wB-MDM
     

     





     
    Note the presence of a 1k resistor to limit the current through the LED.

     
    The front USB3 sockets are served by a separate cable which plugs into blue coloured USB header socket on the motherboard. 
     

     
    The pinout for the microphone and heaphone have a non-standard layout.  The HDD LED requires an extra 1k resistor.   The USB2 pinout seems to have a standard layout but a normal 0.1" pitch USB2 header plug won't fit onto the 2mm pitch pins.
     

     
    It wouldn't surprise me if the Optiplex 7020/9020 and Precision T1700 uses the same pinout for the Front I/O connector.  The key features of the 7020/9020/T1700 are the use of Intel 4th gen Haswell processors.  The MT/DT motherboards have an 8 pin power connector, and a 24 pin ATX to 8 pin adapter is required when planning to use a third party ATX PSU.
     
    The Optiplex 7010/9010 runs Windows 10 just fine.  I have encountered some USB3 and HDMI issues.  Fortunately, there are some fixes for them. 
     
    The 7010/9010 can run macOS High Sierra or Mojave when using a processor with Intel HD4000 graphics, otherwise specific graphics card such as a low cost GT710 is required for any other processor.  A mac/macbook is required to create the USB bootable installation media for macOS.

    That one is really good. Also his Edgar Allan Poe is pretty good, too. I just love the layers to the verses and how jam-packed with tidbits of info but also pop culture at the same time. I couldn't pick a favorite if I tried...

    And all that silliness with the Fluke was entirely unnecessary.  Good product placement though, but a complete waste of time.  Fiber is far more durable and tough than what was shown. ;-)

    If the liquid metal is between the die and the heat sink you do not need to reapply it if you haven't taken the CPU out of the socket.  Intel socket does a good job of holding the heat sink on the die.
     
    Clean the paste off your heat sink top and apply new when changing coolers.
