spawn01's Completed Build: Antec that finally Breathes!

Picture #8 is a major oof, that stick of RAM slightly leaning to one side. Made me shiver. But this is a sick build, super love it.

SchizoTool's Completed Build: Small & Simple Rig

thefowles1 3 points 8 months ago

This build showed up in my Google news feed, oddly enough. But I'm glad it did. I did something similar for my girl a couple years ago, so you have my respect. Nice build, and nice deals on prices, too!

I'd love if motherboards would list the # of certain connectors, such as 4-pin fan connectors. It gets tedious having to go to amazon or Newegg to find that information for each individual motherboard.

looks awesome! curious, though; does the 1000W plat PSU provide any extra benefit over something like an 750w or 850w gold? the wattage requirement shows to only be about less than 550, so to me it seems like way too much overkill

icusmiling's Completed Build: Blue Empire

The case has a controller? That's a surprising but convincing argument...

I notice you have a few fans in use (looks like 1 in & 1 out + 2x120 for AIO), but the mobo only has 2 I/O for chassis fans + the AIO connector. Do you use more than the 2 chassis fans?

ETA: this is a gorgeous build, well deserving of the feature! Grats!

Subhutai's Completed Build: Fractal R6 / Noctua - Silent & Reliable Under Desk (shut up and do your job)

thefowles1 1 point 10 months ago

As someone who has had his eye on Noctua fans for future builds, tell me something: are they truly silent, or at least the quietest fans money can buy? I've never met anyone with a negative opinion about their performance or noise.

Also, if I may ask, this seems like a quite-high performing rig. How good is the I/O with the selected motherboard? It seems to me like that's a fairly mid-level mobo compared to ones intended for high-performance machines, but that could be my inexperience talking.

NeXTechNews's Completed Build: Custom Built Wooden NAS Case

thefowles1 2 points 10 months ago

I'm in love with the tiny little screen!! I gotta ask, being fairly unfamiliar with NAS aside from the fact that it's used as storage over a network, what is the purpose of the SSD?

WizardlyMoney's Completed Build: Second Personal Build

thefowles1 1 point 11 months ago

Two questions: 1) What game pad is that on the left of your keyboard? 2) Using different brands of RGB mouse/keyboard/gamepad, do they all sync together or are they controlled separately?

Holy cow, thanks for that link. Good to know it isn't broken, but yikes.

That’s some mighty fine cable management for a no-liquid first build. +1

Wow, that’s crazy impressive. Thanks for the reply.

Newegg page for the CPU states the supported memory is only DDR4-2666, but the RAM you ordered is far higher than that. Does that mean the RAM will need to be underclocked to work with it? Genuine question, as I’m still learning how compatibility works.
