  1. I had the idea a bit ago, unfortunately with COVID, shipping has been slow. In short, I have two new fans I want to use to replace my AIO with. The NF14 3000RPM Noctua. By default, the two fans on the radiator connect to the AIO via a splitter cable, however, these new fans are rated for 0.55A each, which I'm sure is way more than the original fans push out. So I'm weary of having those fans connected. How do I set this up to where I can utilize the new fans on the radiator, as well as whatever control NZXT cam would need? Edit: I just ran t
  2. Now that you mention the K6, I swear that could have been the system I had as my first computer before the AMD 1GHz days. I don't remember the exact model, but it was somewhere below 500Mhz. Then i upgraded to a 800MHz AMD, and then the 1GHz AMD came out and that was the "oh my god I need it" chip. I've never had Intel; for some reason as a kid, our family always stuck with AMD because my cousin was a big computer guy and that's just what he chose. I know I had a duron for a bit, which may have been the 800MHz one. But the K6 rings a ton of bells. Literally had like a 40MB ha
  3. Sadly no hah. My machine back then was a custom built AMD Athlon 1GHz, and a Voodoo 5 5500 AGP. I had a machine before that, but hell, I was knee-high to a grasshopper then, don't remember what it was. But the AMD one was in my teen days of Unreal Tournament. That machine just kept going and going.
  4. Yeah, After the switch to the x570 and it not working, I went back and tried it in the x470. A no-go in there too. So something happened to it after the migration at that first attempt to access it. lol. Man those Zip drives were an amazing thing back then. Everyone and their mother used one for something. Seems like hardware lasted forever then. Damn I feel old. hah
  5. So in short; I'm just going through a checklist in my brain. Had a Crucial MX500 m.2 for roughly a year that I was using in a MSI Gaming Plus x470. Worked fine. It was a drive that had probably 5TBW because it had a few games on it that always stayed the same. I decided to upgrade that machine to an x570 so I can get both machines prepped for Ryzen 4th CPUs. I popped the drive back in, and when I got into Windows, I saw the drive sitting here in the list of drive letters, all looked fine, and I just left it be for the day. The next day, I was going to wipe it, but first
  6. Friend called today, had me come over. His computer would randomly shut off and the LED light would blink on the tower. Happened at random, sometimes after 20 mins of being on, sometimes 30. In order to get it to turn back on, you had to turn off the PSU in the back / dc the power cable, plug it back in, and it would start. Took the PSU apart and the fan on it was completely gone (nano fan, which I've also never heard of). Even with force, the blades barely spin, so a bad bearing. I replaced the fan with a new one I had extra, and it's on for the moment. I'm not complet

    USB Madness

    Yeah, I use the 3.2 Type A ports. The type c one I'm referring to is a YubiKey 5 USB-C U2F. It came with thunderbolt and USB-C for that particular device, so I was just going to extend the port from the back of the case and utilize that. The board also supports a USB-C at the front, but my particular case doesn't have USB C, so I'd have to buy a PCI slot card to hook into that port on the MB and it would still put the port on the back of the case. The only other solution is to buy a USB C to USB A adapter that plugs onto the end of the YubiKey USB C port and convert it that way. Bu

    USB Madness

    Thanks. The SD slots and stuff are fine. I just figured it would be easy to find one if it didn't have all the other bells and whistles. And the USB C it comes with is a data port correct? The ones I've seen that do get included appear to be for charging only, and don't support data (usb drive, etc). And for the short cable, I assume I can just buy a USB C extension cable. It appears all I need for it to be comfortable is about 1 foot / 30 cm. Tower sits on my desk to my right.
  9. Wasn't sure where to post this... it deals with USB ports in general, but I've spent 3 days now trying to find the right thing, and my brain is about to explode. Here's a summary of what I need so I don't write paragraphs I have a USB 3.2 Type C port in the back of my computer I want a device (powered hub, etc), where I can plug into that port, but the hud itself would give me one working USB Type C port back on the hub. Don't really need them split, but it would be a bonus. But I also want a USB hub to give me a few USB ports on my desk. USB 3.0 Type A is fine.
  10. So, before this motherboard; I had an MSI x470 which had no USB-C ports as far as I can remember; or I just didn't bother with them. My x570 godlike has apparently 2. One at the rear, and one for the front of the case. However, my case does not have a USB-C port, just USB 3.0. The question is. Since I have "support" for a USB 3.2 on the front. Is their a device I can purchase to run a cable from that front port connector, and plug it into.. say.. a hub? And the 2nd question; is their any type of HUB out there which will allow me to connect it into that USB 3.2 port in the
  11. Is a good landing. lol. Thanks for the help though. Looks like just replacing the case with one I'll actually enjoy is the best solution. Just too many modifications to this case, and not enough space.
  12. Yeah, I would have tried to find alternative solutions for the glass, but like I said, I realized how "functional" the case was when I had to do that little project, which meant taking off a piece of metal that was 2 inches wide and roughly 10 inches tall. Luckily I made it look good after the sanding, but I really want a case that just has more room. After I put the GPU in, and then my NVMe extender card, there's really no room left at the bottom and cable management just looks horrible. So having spare room at the bottom with a new case will be nice. Plus the case is ready to mo
  13. Yeah. I just like how clean they are. Unfortunately when I bought the one I'm using now, I didn't realize how closed off the front was. I had to remove the front glass to give airflow. Had I paid more attention, that would have been a deal breaker, but carelessness. This one is at least a full tower, and supports my E-ATX, so I won't have to break out my tools just to get it to fit. And I'll actually have hard drive bays I can utilize. Luckily I only have 1 HDD that is sitting at the bottom, but it would have been nice to actually use it, instead of removing it to fit the PSU.
  14. Yes, that case is confusing. Imagine how I felt and why I had to modify it so much. The first night I had it, I had to modify it to get the PSU in (it was a standard PSU size). I had to remove the hard drive mounting tray otherwise the PSU wouldn't fit. I was actually thinking over what my dislikes are in the case, and I'm poking around at the moment for an upgrade next month, and this one caught my eye. Even has the 2 slot side mounting for a GPU: https://www.amazon.com/Anidees-Crystal-Tempered-Support-Radiator/dp/B07NW42KN9/ref=sr_1_90?crid=3HQ78YTEK7X97&dchild=1&
  15. Ah sorry. Stats for PC are in my footer. The case I use is: https://www.amazon.com/darkFlash-Mid-Tower-Computer-Tempered-Pre-Installed/dp/B07F1YSB9M/ref=sr_1_45?dchild=1&keywords=Deepcool+case&qid=1595040612&sr=8-45 I've debated the case though. It was nice on paper, but I feel it's too cramped. Not to mention, when I bought my mobo, it was E-ATX, and this particular case had a indentation shortly after the motherboard was to go inside, which made putting an E-ATX in it a pain. So I decided to use a dremel, and modify the case to open up that part of th
