    [SUCCESS] Gigabyte Designare Z390 (Thunderbolt 3) + i7-9700K + AMD RX 580

    @CaseySJ I pulled the RX 6900XT from my hackintosh and switched to the iGPU. Not great, but it works. Any suggestions on Bios settings for reasonable performance? Here's the 6900, now water cooled, in my new rig! Waiting for the new 1200W power supply to arrive. Getting closer to completion...

    @CaseySJ Are there any known pitfalls switching from an AMD GPU to the Intel iGPU? I planned to use HackinDROM to update my EFI. I need to pull my 6900XT for my new rig, but want to keep my current Hackintosh running. Thanks in advance.

    Gigabyte B550 Vision D (Thunderbolt 3) + AMD Ryzen 7 3700X + AMD RX 5600 XT

    I haven't been able to fire it up yet since I'm still waiting for parts of the cooling loop. Corsair has been shipping items direct from China, so my 3-way splitter, drain valve, and 45 degree fittings are stuck in Customs somewhere. I'm also waiting for the blue coolant to arrive next week. Big...

    Gigabyte B550 Vision D (Thunderbolt 3) + AMD Ryzen 7 3700X + AMD RX 5600 XT

    @CaseySJ Thought you might be interested in the status X570 of my build. I'm having some issues sourcing all the parts for the cooling loop, but the main components are finally in the case. My 6900 XT and power supply will be last pieces to go in since they are coming out of my current...

    Hey @Inqnuam, I used the 2.0 Beta this morning to update to OC0.7.3 and everything worked perfectly. Thanks to you and @CaseySJ!

    The motherboard arrived on Tuesday while I was traveling. My first impression it that it's a BEAST. No joke; it easily ways 5+ lbs. Unfortunately, my new Corsair 7000D Airflow also arrived Tuesday but was severely damaged. I returned it to Best Buy, and promptly ordered a white 5000D Airflow...

    Does anyone know how to get OC0.7.2 to default to a specific volume? I've tried a few options but none seem to stick. :banghead:

    If you do go that route let me know if you're going to Hackintosh. I'm still on the fence.

    Luckily, I was able to snag the ROG CROSSHAIR VIII EXTREME on pre-order from NewEgg yesterday during the livestream. I haven't decided if it'll be a Hackintosh yet, but I plan to fully kit it out. I've already got a 5950X and 128GB of 3600MHz memory in route. Now I just need to config & order an...

    @Sapricot I too was a bit weary of the Ubiquiti issues at the outset, so I built a custom Untangle NG Firewall HomePro running on Qotom 4 LAN Mini PC with 16GB of RAM and 250GB SSD. I hung the Ubiquiti PoE switch and access points off it and all-in-all it was AWESOME! I had complete control...

    Thanks @CaseySJ, I'm humbled by the "award"?! :lol: After 30 years of working, living, & breathing technology, I still embody the saying "Go big or go home". Albeit, from my military days it was "Do it right the first time, or do it again".

    Yes, I have a (ahem) few of them (38)!?! :eek: Wemo, Koogeek, Eufy, and Tuya. I've got them segmented off on a dedicated separate VLAN called IoT. My IoT VLAN can access the internet but not my home network, and my home LAN has direct access my IoT VLAN via a dedicated routing. Again...

    2020 wreaked havoc on our home network & Internet as all 8 of us (me, wife, & 6 kids) were pounding away on our 300Mbps Spectrum connection. Five of the kids home schooling locally, to Kentucky, and Krakow, as well as my work day connection to Vienna, Austria. Things were not good. I upgrade to...

    Made a couple of adjustments to my rig for better temps. I moved my NZXT Kraken X73 to the top of my o11-D case with the fans exhausting, and added 2 sets of 3 LianLi SL120 UNI fans as intakes idling at 980rpm. Now my CPU hovers between 35° and 38° C Package temp with all my normal (work) apps...

    Now don't say never, as there is a thin butterfly conspiracy theory of a possibility. Here's how it goes: Nvidia bought ARM -> Apple now has to pay Nvidia to license ARM -> Nvidia pressures Apple to support GeForce cards or pay a higher license cost -> Apple agrees and supports Nvidia cards...
