    Apple Announces M1 Ultra CPU, Mac Studio and Studio Display

    Does AppleCare Cover SSD's? So for example, If I got a Mac Studio & wrote/deleted tons of files over the span of 2 years & after 24 months the SSD dies/was no longer good, would Apple still replace the Mac Studio? Or would they consider it "normal wear/tear" like a car's brake pads & not cover it?

    Western Digital 2TB WD Blue PC Hard Drive for $49.99

    Seems like the 4GB drive at $72.99 would be more useful & a better deal: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B087QTVCHH/?tag=tonymacx86com-20 double the capacity, 50% more cost :mrgreen:

    Yeston & Visiontek LP RX 560 4GB Graphics Card now available

    No way would i consider paying $240 for an RX560, even if it had a DP. Don't care where the market is at with pricing. Luckily, I have a GTX 1650 to tide me over until AMD releases Ryzen 5000 desktop APU's. That will be my next "video card" purchase. I don't do as much gaming as I used to, so...

    New Apple Silicon Macs for 2021: Redesigned iMac and a Mac Pro mini

    I'm done with Hackintoshing, ever since Apple announced the M1 Macs. It's a platform that's slowly dying. It may not be apparent today, but it's moving in that direction, and It's a direction I don't intend to move in. Whether that's 6 months or 2 years from now. I currently have a custom built...

    New HP IPS 24" Monitor with DP for $109.99 at Amazon

    The monitor is great - really like it. Screen seems a bit more sharper than the ASUS 27" I had, which had a .31mm dot pitch & VA panel as opposed to this HP which has .27mm IPS panel. There a little light bleed on the bottom right side of the panel but nothin major. I also like the controls on...

    New HP IPS 24" Monitor with DP for $109.99 at Amazon

    Thanks trs96! :clap: I went ahead & jumped on 1. If I like it, which I think I should (I've had HP monitors in the Past) I might get another 1 & then sell my 27" 144Hz ASUS. Then would stick both on a dual desk mount. I don't game alot, so 75Hz is the bare minimum I would accept on a monitor...

    Inateck M.2 PCIe SSD Adapter for NVME SSDs

    Thanks, but looks like the one supports only 1 NVMe & 1 SATA. Looking for a card that supports 2 NVMe.

    Inateck M.2 PCIe SSD Adapter for NVME SSDs

    Does anyone know if there is a card like this that supports 2 M.2 NVMe drives, preferably PCIe x16 or x8 electrical interface, low profile? I've looked over Amazon & NewEgg but haven't been able to fond anything. Asus seems to have something for about $50 but It's high profile & has a fan...

    Apple Previews macOS 11.0 Big Sur - Available Fall 2020

    I've gone to Linux, mostly Pop OS! or Mint. It may not be as easy to use as macOS but I can run more games on Linux, especially, Windows games easier on it, since Catalina Killed 32 bit support. I'll reconsider hackintoshing again if that becomes possible on ARM-compatible hardware. I'm assuming...

    Apple Previews macOS 11.0 Big Sur - Available Fall 2020

    It will be interesting to see how cheap/expensive the first ARM based Mac will be - Mac Mini? I think this is the beginning of the end of Intel Hackintoshes. It's possible the future will bring ARM-based Hackintoshes???

    It'll be interesting to see how macOS compatible those Intel 2.6GbE NICs will be.

    Gigabyte Z390 M Gaming build with working NVRAM

    So if you have a Gigabyte motherboard, and you have a CFG lock/unlock option in your UEFI/BIOS, do you still have to go through the MSR unlock procedure?

    $55 mATX Case with Hinged Glass Side Panel - The DLM21 by Darkflash

    Really well, except had a hard time connecting the 8-pin & 4-pin ATX power cables to the motherboard, along with a fan connector on the top rear corner of my Gigabyte Z390 M Gaming mobo. Not really the fault of the case. There is plenty of space to route those cables, however the Scythe Mugen 5...

    $55 mATX Case with Hinged Glass Side Panel - The DLM21 by Darkflash

    I'll actually building my Hack today, as soon as I go to Micro Center, install Win10 to test, then install Catalina, I'll report back in a couple of days. I'm debating getting 6 120mm Arctic Cooling F12 Fluid Dynamic Bearing PWM Case Fans with the white fan blades. MC has them for $9 each...

    $55 mATX Case with Hinged Glass Side Panel - The DLM21 by Darkflash

    Just got the case today. Ordered off Amazon. Morons sent me Black instead of White. I definitely did order White. Oh, well. I'll keep it. Luckily for them I'm partial to black too. Goes with the rest of my cases. If they had sent me any other color, it would definitely be going back. Otherwise...

    Yes, it was, but the NZXT H210 was even worse.

    $55 mATX Case with Hinged Glass Side Panel - The DLM21 by Darkflash

    I was going to go for a white Inwin 301 in my upcoming build that I'll be doing in about a week, having had one of those before, which I think has good build quality, but it was kind of a pain to work with - the SSD area was really cramped for inserting cables & compared to the 301, the DLM21...

    $55 mATX Case with Hinged Glass Side Panel - The DLM21 by Darkflash

    Amen to that! Thanks trs96 - I will be picking up the DLM21 Mesh in White in a few minutes. Great price. I have a "thing" for white cases (I used to be all about black cases but that's gotten old), especially Micro ATX, which is my fav form factor. I actually like Mini ITX for the size, but 1...

    [Success] Squirrelzone's Z370-A II - i5 9600k - Radeon 5700 build

    squirrelzone, are there any Z390 motherboards that have native NVRAM? Is there any way to tell looking online at the manufacturer specs? What's the benefit of native vs. non-native? Thanks!
