    MSI Radeon RX 560 4GT LP OC 4GB Low Profile @ $125 ($110 after rebate)

    FYI, there's a single slot, half height GTX 1050 Ti. I have one. Only has HDMI though. https://www.gearbest.com/graphics-video-cards/pp_1261865.html Equivalent to Quadro P1000 (minus the 4 display ports). As of this writing, late January 2019, you are 'limited' to 10.13.6, and a few hoops to...

    We look forward to your "translated for mortals" addendum in the guide (on page 1?). Oh. Happy New Year from Sydney, Australia.

    Best Single Slot Low Profile GPU for a Kaby Lake Sierra build?

    For anyone following this thread, have found an 'easier' way to get the single slot, 1/2 height gtx 1050ti. https://www.gearbest.com/graphics-video-cards/pp_1261865.html Still not cheap. On the windows side, my son get 1080p/60fps in Fortnite for extended sessions.

    Fatal bug possibly with RX 580 and the big game Fortnite

    Why don't you use a small (say 128gb, or bigger) SSD and play it in Windows?

    Its tangential - there is no 'mechanism' on TMX86 for direct communication. And, knowing how you like to use as many OOB (Out of the box, for those unfamiliar with the term) items as possible, it seemed a logical extension of your build ethos. Until... You sent me that tear down with the USI...

    Be honest. When you saw the 2018 MBP, did you think "Ooh, there will be a bluetooth 5 Wifi Card to go into my NGFF(M.2) Key A/E Adapter soon". :-)

    Apple Reveals macOS 10.14 Mojave at WWDC - Available Fall 2018

    Apple seem to have gone "all in" on Thunderbolt III. That alone should dispel rumours of Arm on desktop? :think:

    pastrychef's Asus ROG Strix Z370-G Gaming (WI-FI AC) build w/ i9-9900K + AMD Vega 56

    Well thats both counter intuitive and reassuring :thumbup: Which CUDA "formula" - os + nvidia drivers + kexts - did you use, if I may ask? I'm committed to the 'hard' work of NVidia - yet to buy my gpu, very close now. Premiere/AE/Media encoder performance is paramount. (Stop looking at me...

    MONSTER RIG HELP!!!!

    Have you looked at KGP's "How to build iMac pro"? https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/how-to-build-your-own-imac-pro-successful-build-extended-guide.229353/ You'd probably want to extrude that to the Asus WS-X299-SAGE board, with its plx chips. This will NOT be an easy build. You'll...

    Pastry chef, Your guide has inspired me, and have pulled the trigger on a silicon lottery 8700k. Pricing on CPU in Oz, it was worth is for the the peace of mind, and I don't have to muck about with delidding process. (An additional cost, and risk). System will be used for "content creation" and...

    pastrychef's testing machine - HP Elite 8300 SFF - i7-3770 - GT 630

    Agreed: I'm in same boat with DDR3. You also get M.2. Which is very nice. Recap: In Australia for an "i7" pre-build $300 to $400 AUD (basically halve that for USD*) will get you an SFF Ivy Bridge to Haswell, your Dell Optiplex, HP Elite Desk, Lenovo et al. $500 AUD to $600 AUD will get you a...

    Haswell also seems to have better CPU power management routines compared to Ivy Bridge (i.e., Intel 4th and 3rd gen), on real Macs. At home I have an ridiculously "maxed out" 27" i7 Ivy Bridge iMac, RAID 0 SSD etc, and a bog standard i5 Haswell with platter drives! The i5 has less sleep/wake...
