  1. So today I joined the mechanical keyboard community by building my own. Gotta say it was a fun project after I figured out how to assemble it. Had some trouble fitting the metal plate to the PCB and also the stabilizers were a bit of a hassle, but I think we're good now. So this is an aluminum brown case which is nice and sturdy and under the hood there are Kailh Box Pink switches which so far I like a lot. The keycaps are offbrand but maybe in the future i'll change them and also mod it in the future. For now I'm excited to learn all the ins and outs of the functions since it's a sixty percen
  2. So here it is, in full working order. Kailh Box Pink switches with some random keycaps. Gotta say I love the look. Low profile with that sturdy aluminum brown coffee case.
  3. There we go, weird that I couldn't find any other of the GK61XS that mounted this way. Feel a bit like an idiot that I didn't figure it out sooner. Thanks for the advice.
  4. Hello everyone. I've decided to get into mechanical keyboards and I wanted to try and build by own 60%. So i bought this kit: Aluminium Case Cnc Plaat Pcb GK61 GK61x GK61xs Rgb Hot Swap Onafhankelijke Driver Tyce C Ansi Mechanische Toetsenbord Diy kit|Keyboards| - AliExpress It seems like all of the other GK61XS kits, however when I tried to assemble it, it seems like the metal plate that should mount onto the PCB is missing some holes. They're covered up by metal but the underside has the stems for the screws. Screws also come with it. although they do seem a bit on th
  5. Samsung 980 1TB - Coolblue - Voor 23.59u, morgen in huis Here you go, it's Dutch though. Also it might be a good investment for the future, in a few years i'll need to upgrade and I can use the full speed of it, if by then it does make some difference...
  6. Hello everyone, I'm in need of additional storage space and I'm considering an NVME because I already have 2 regular SSD's in my case and it's getting a bit crowded with cables and whatnot. There was a local offering of a Samsung 980 (120 euro's) which seems like a good deal. Of course I know that NVME in real life is not that much faster than M.2 SSD for regular tasks, but since it's almost the same price as for example a WD Blue SATA SSD M.2 I might as well take that one. According to the techsheet on the MOBO's website (Z97 MPOWER MAX AC) it should fit the key, but I have some a
  7. Hello everyone, I'm looking to get into my first mechanical keyboard, but i can't decide really. The Ducky Mecha Mini seems like a great choice with good build quality (cast aluminum, good keycaps etc.), but it's not hot swappable. I'd really like an hot swappable aluminum board, because I can't solder so if I'd ever want to change switches it'd be impossible. Just the idea of being stuck on one switch kinda sucks to me. The GMMK Pro is a bit too expensive for me but i found the GK61XS aluminum kit, anyone has any experience with that? Cheers
  8. I'm about to buy my first mech keyboard but I can't really choose (as so many) what switch I want. I just went to the store to try a bunch of different ones. Didn't like red (too soft), didn't like blue (too loud), didn't like brown (middle ground but a bit too much like red). They only had some other membrane (the Razer Ornata V2) and weirdly enough I like that one the most. But they were out of stock and he told me it wasn't that good with input or something. Does anyone know what switch would come closest to the Ornata V2? Guy in the store told me he liked green the most, but th
  9. We got it, one of the RAM wasn't seated correctly. Goddamn i feel like such a noob sometimes
  10. 1. Tried either (GPU and motherboard HDMI) 2. I5 3570K (worked fine till we messed this up) 3. Motherboard asus b75m-plus
  11. Yes I re-plugged it too, don't think the system would turn on without it
  12. so me and my brother decided to give the pc a cleanup. Removed the stock Intel cooler, cleaned up with isoprop, applied new thermal paste and put the cooler back on. Didn't remove the cpu from the socket. But now there's no signal anymore. Tried different ports, cables and monitors. all the fans turn on and everything. Any suggestions?
  13. I asked them and they don't think so. Can't imagine any channel that has these blocks either. They have weird color changes in the middle of the screen as well. Shouldn't this be warranty?
  14. So I've done the pixel refresher, that didn't solve it.
  15. So my grandparents gave me a call that their tv was acting weird. Something with colors and "blocks". It seems at the bottom of the screen there are some things (see pic) like it's burned in like plasma tv. But it's a LG OLED. Anyone knows what this is?
  16. Rx 580 Sapphire + Special Edition. I run 1080P 144 Hz. Bought a 50,- cooler from a local store. So not crappy but also not top notch probably. I haven't done the benchtest 8 hours yet. But in my own experience benchmarks don't mean the world, because sometimes I would run one for a longer period of time, only to have it crashed in-game within 10 minutes.
  17. Hey guys, I've got an I7 4790K which runs 4,7 Ghz on air at about 1.27Vcore. Just got a fresh delid so thermals are very low (70 degrees when gaming after a couple hours). I just got into overclocking so learning a lot, but I was wondering whether getting a liquid cooler might be a smart thing to overclock it further (maybe to 5 Ghz or beyond?). Would a relatively small increase in Mhz get some extra FPS in games like Warzone ( I know it's GPU bound, but was just wondering if that would help). Right now I can't get good temps at 4,8 Ghz on air so hence the question. I
  18. I don't have a band, but I do regularly ground myself
  19. All looking fine. I think it's electrical because all three drives snapped at once.
  20. A photo of the PSU connectors is not really possible right now. But since I'm using those cables right now I'm assuming they should be fine. A picture of the SSD's, sure if you really want. But there's really nothing to see.
  21. All looking fine as far as my knowledge goes for these things.
  22. Nah if they wouldn't just "click" I wouldn't have tried to push them in.
