  1. I might try this, someday but it does indeed seem a pain in the ass. Probably also a reason why it is so difficult to find pictures from the parts underneath . I found tons of information about coil whine on the net, that's so much more helpful then whatever i found when searching for motherboard capacitors. First off i'll try to localize the sound next time to see if it comes from PSU, mobo or IO shield. thanks a lot all of you!
  2. And now the noise disappeared again. Switched some USB ports but everything is as it was before. No noise It is indeed very annoying but as long as it doesn't harm any hardware i am fine with it. The noise doesn't last very long. I didn't get a chance to listen on the ports but i'll try to localize it next time.
  3. I don't know a lot about electronic parts so i might be very wrong. The board is an Asrock Z370 Extreme4 if that helps, the keyboard is an Ergodox planck EZ . Unfortunately i have nothing at home to make measure it myself. In another forum, someone posted his power draw is 1.5W at 50% backlight. That's little for USB. Yes, the current increases as more LEDs are lit up, it is this little bit of extra power draw that makes the wheezing start. The sound i hear is high pitched, and loud, close to the upper limit of audible noise for my no longer brand new ears. It is not co
  4. my first thought is to buy a digital ampmeter that can be connected between USB devices host and device, to measure the power draw. I don't see any popped capacitors. Some have a housing and these are looking fine, too.
  5. today i finally found the source of a wheezing sound from my PC, which i assume is a capacitor on the motherboard. I have a keyboard with LED backlight connected to a USB 3.1 port of my motherboard. The wheezing sound appears when pressing multiple keys on the board simultaneously. The sound disappears on release, it can be replicated. There are no hardware defects known to me but the audible indicator that something's going terribly wrong. The cause for this damage must not necessarily be the keyboard - other devices have been connected by USB before and it could well
  6. this card has really good reviews, thank you!
  7. he needs it for gaming only. The budget maybe 400$ if that makes sense? I think the parts are pretty low end. Cheaper would be better.
  8. hi, the graphics card of my brother died and he needs replacement. Which card would you recommend for i5-7500? these are the parts he uses: PCPartPicker Part List: https://pt.pcpartpicker.com/list/WPf3k6 CPU: Intel Core i5-7500 3.4 GHz Quad-Core Processor Motherboard: MSI B250M PRO-VDH Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard Memory: Crucial 8 GB (1 x 8 GB) DDR4-2133 Memory Storage: OCZ ARC 100 240 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive Power Supply: FSP Group 500 W 80+ Gold Certified ATX Power Supply Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24D5MT DVD/CD Writer (€15.90 @ Globaldata
  9. thanks. I've seen this one but in that page below it lists compatible products, mine is not listed... what's more is that official vendors do not seem to have the product listed anymore...
  10. hello, I have a Fractal Design Meshify C PC case with a drive cage for 2x 3.5" HDD. Looking at the manufacturer's site there doesn't seem to be any HDD accessories for this particular model. I need at least two more HDD mounts and will probably have to use a Universal Multibracket solution. Ideally I would like to buy a second cage and stack it on top of the other: As shown in this picture the top plate can be removed to make space for a 2nd cage. I could probably turn the top cage by 180° so the top drives are still accessible. Unfortunately th
  11. plus, it's a custom storage not a custom drive. why is portability a convenience? Most convenient solution would be to connect it to the internet with your own cloud storage. Can be accest remotely by phone, tablet, labtop, or in the office.
  12. There's a ton of software available that you can use if you don't want to write a script by yourself. I am using duplicity.
  13. I'm a total beginner, any marketing catchphrases to search for so I can find some examples? Any particular manufacturer to look out for so I can find appropriate keyboards more easily? In regards to convenience features, can I, generally speaking, program it with anything I like? On the technical side, I want to change some keyboard shortcuts system wide. The problem I have is that every application has it's own configuration and I don't want to change settings on each and every location. For example I cannot set cut & paste system wide. I have to change it on every damn progra
  14. hello, I only used cheap keyboards before and am thinking about buying a mechanical keyboard. I've seen some have GUI software to customize keyboard layouts. What are the features and limitations on these customizations? Is it possible to remap keyboard combinations such that you type a combination Ctrl + . and it sends the keys Ctrl + z to the PC? How do multiple layers work, can I use one layout in general and apply a different one automatically every time Ctrl key is pressed? Do keyboard manufacturers usually support Linux? thank you
