  1. Hm. Realtek Audio seems normal... A probing question: Does this only occur with that specific set of headphones (I'm assuming the HyperX Cloud Core?), and have you updated the firmware for your HyperX Cloud Core headphones? HyperX Cloud Firmware Update Rev. 0010 (Models: HX-USCCPSS-BK, HX-HSCC-2-BK) from HyperX.

Yes, yes, 'Chew likes her blank keycaps, yada yada yada... WELL, EXCUUUSE ME. This is exciting because I can finally move on to a full set of blank keycaps! Freaking meant to do this two months ago, but... Stupid 2U Shift. Grrr. And legends. Hrnnng... The main thing about legends is more that I don't want to wear them down, and less that I feel like obstinatel
  3. KBDfans Package! - Keycap Sets Yaaasss!!! KAT Alpha + OEM Fog White Keycap Sets BLANK BLANK BLANK BLANK BLAAANKS! For the uninitiated, the two keysets have different physical profiles. And both are advertised as PBT, but the KAT Alpha seems suspiciously smooth to my fingers. Hm... I'm aware that Keyreative sells a set of ABS Blanks. Hoping they haven't pulled a fast one on me. Closer inspection is needed. But first, dinner. KAT vs. OEM vs. Cherry Profiles Courtesy of Keycaps.info. Massive kudos to whomever that made and is hosting
  4. Peanut butter. ...Pee Nut Butt Er. Might as well be poop.
  5. #food-rant What self-respecting chef slathers peanut butter all over plain 腸粉 (cheung fun, or steamed rice noodle roll). Hoison sauce enough lah. Left: Ideal Plain Cheung Fun. Right: やめてください. Best part was it was takeout, so while the perfectly delicious cheung fun was swamped in a disgusting brown, watery pool of peanut-frigging-butter, the Hoison sauce was neatly sealed in a plastic container. A container that was sitting in the middle of the peanut butter bogmarsh. THEY COULD'VE PACKED THE BUTT SAUCE IN A CONTAINER TOO.
  6. Hey there. Warm welcome to the forums! Kailh BOX Jades are solid clicky switches. Custom keeb enthusiasts will vouch for them, myself included: Kailh Box Jade - The Best Clicky Switch to Ever Exist by sowon: Review of the BOX Jades that looks into its physical form, mechanics, and some short comments on its acoustics. Den-Fi's GK64 Update! - Kailh BOX Jades: Sound samples contained in this post, if you're interested. Very satisfying switches. It's keystrokes are feather-light (for me ), the clicks are consistently sharp, and their tactility is equally as crisp.
  7. Hoshī Update - Minor Adjustments Preparing to sell Hoshī's excess, unused parts to a coworker! Specifically, the GIGABYTE B450 AORUS PRO WIFI motherboard and the EVGA DG-75 case. ...Thank the heavens. I've been meaning to pawn off the case for a while, but whomst the heck would want a giant glass hotbox like the DG-75, lol? And, since I want to be a decent human being, I'm selling both parts boxed with 99% of their original accessories. Uh, 99%, because I need the one M.2 screw that came with the GIGABYTE board; my ASUS PRIME X570-PRO was missing it's M.2 screws + stand
  8. Hey there. A lubing station isn't strictly necessary to lube your switches up with. More of a convenience thing. Plenty of others have lubed switches without the station, it's perfectly doable: How I Lube MX-Style Mechanical Keyboard Switches by sowon: Standard method for lubing switches.

  10. Hey there. Going off the assumption that it's the motherboard's audio that's the issue, not the headphones/speakers. Ah, not my area of expertise, but here's a suggestion: Realtek Audio Control? Realtek Audio Control Do ignore the ASUS logo in the top-left corner. I recall my GIGABYTE B450 AORUS PRO WIFI board working with this app/software, and it seems like your Gigabyte GA-AB350M-Gaming 3 relies on Realtek for audio as well? I'd take a look around in the Realtek Audio Control's settings. If there have been changes from the defaul

    On mine the white VGA Check LED sometimes (most of the times) doesn't turn off after boot, which is sooooo annoying. 

    Okie okei, got an update for ya. For my case, all LEDs power off after the PC shuts down. However, I did notice two things that you may or may not find useful?


    Thing One: ASUS Armoury Crate (PRIME X570-PRO Support/Downloads Page)

    The Armory (🇺🇸) Armoury Crate tool has a dedicated "Shutdown Effect" thingymabobbie, which can be toggled on or off:



    ASUS Armoury Crate - Shutdown Effect

    From the hamburger menu, it's under Device > PRIME X570-PRO > Shutdown Effect.

    If toggled on, the motherboard's LEDs remain lit even after the PC has shut down. This seems to affect any RGB that's in effect on the motherboard, not just indicator/debug LEDs. You could attempt to toggle this off, and see whether it makes a difference?


    Thing Two: ASUS UEFI BIOS Utility



    ASUS UEFI BIOS Utility

    There's an "AURA ON/OFF (F4)" option in the BIOS. Setting it to "Stealth Mode" or "Aura Only" might help with switching off the iffy VGA Check LED?

    1. Moonzy


      @FloRolfdo you by any chance have Asus AI suite installed?


      I had an issue where it prevented my computer from fully shutting down, so I had to uninstall it

      Hey there. 

      No I am sorry my issue is actually the other way around. 

      When I turn the PC on it cycles all the debug LEDs so that's VGA, CPU, RAM and then boot. Then for some reason it does it again but then the white VGA LED just stays on and the PC is also on. I then have to restart the pc within windows and then it'll usually turn off during boot. 

      Next cold start it'll stay on again though. 


      It's not that anything malfunctions or smth, it's just annoying as hell because I have a windowed sidepanel and the VGA led is freaking bright in my face lol. 

  12. Yus I have, mm-hmm: Hoshī Update - ASUS PRIME X570-PRO Motherboard. I did notice that its RGBs lit up like a Chrimbus tree when I flipped the power supply switch on, even before powering on the PC. Uncertain whether the indicator/debug LEDs (CPU, DRAM, VGA, Boot Device, etc.) on my board do the same thing after shutdown, though. Uh, I left the PC running overnight to fold proteins, kek. (If I see the same thing happening, will make note of it in an edit to this post.)
  13. Hoshī Update - ASUS PRIME X570-PRO Motherboard Uhhh... The socially-acceptable, practical reason I swapped out my GIGABYTE B450 AORUS PRO for an ASUS PRIME X570-PRO is to make use of the case's USB Type-C front header, which the GIGABYTE B450 doooeeesn't support. The more important reason was the GIGABYTE AORUS MOBO's obnoxious gamer-y aesthetics was getting on my nerves. (Performance-wise, the B450 was perfectly fine for my use case, and the X570 is prooobably overkill for a Ryzen 5 3600X, ahahaha...) Hoshī + GIGABYTE B450 AORUS PRO Motherb
  14. ASUS Prime X570-PRO Motherboard [Da-da-da-daaah!] Open Box purchase, nabbed it off eBay. ASUS Prime X570-PRO Motherboard Seems to be in good visual condition... Must install into Hoshī (PC) later. あああ、面倒くさい、(笑)。 ASUS Prime X570-PRO Motherboard I/O Shield Convenient. Also, me likey.
