    YES! -- Lian Li TU150X M-ITX case with no window

    I was very dissapointed when the first TU150 cases all came with a silly window. Finally a serious portable M-ITX gamer case with a handle on top.

    The state of 2.5 inch SSDs -- Am I the only one that thinks the new TLC drives SUCK?

    Just bought a couple of Mushkin "RAW" drives. Using one to backup a macbook air in a USB3 case. It's down to 5MB per second! Everything is fine until the cache fills up. Once it does, spinning disks are faster on sustained writes. Anyone still selling MLC drives? I used to buy Mushkin...

    Anyone using ROM P4.00 with ASRock Fatal1ty Z370 Gaming-ITX/ac?

    I am considerin a CPU upgrade on one of the family computers and it requires the P4.00 ROM. I know there have been some issues with Gigabyte ROMs lately. Can anyone provide feedback on the P4.00 ROM? I think the Z390 seems to use the same ROM versions if not the same actual ROM.

    2TB Samsung 960 PRO vs 2TB HP EX950

    I paid $1600 for the 960 PRO 2 years ago. They still cost $1200 today. I paid $280 for the HP EX950 last week. The HP is clearly the best value in a desktop drive. The Samsung 960 PRO uses less power and would be better suited for a laptop. The 2TB drive with the lowest power requirements...

    What do you do when you've built a hackintosh sufficiently powerful enough to last the next 10 years?

    My 12 core Mac Pro Classic has lasted 10 years and is still more than sufficient. It will likely be a great computer until it dies and can't be repaired. My best Hackintosh to date is an X299 with the 18 core i9-7980xe. I needed that power in my last job. I don't for-see needed that much...

    Gigabyte Z370XP SLI -- I just put a hackintosh together using this motherboard. Seeking comments from other owners.

    I bought this Motherboard refurbished from NewEgg on July 10th for just under $100. Scavenged the parts out of my ASRock Z370 ITX to test it out. Booted into MacOS the first time I started it with NO BIOS changes. I don't even know what version of BIOS it has yet. Anyone else using this...

    600mbps USB WIFI (AC) dongles based on the RealTek 0xc811 chipset

    I bought 2 different brands of these. Both promised to work with 10.14. Only one had functioning drivers and I will reward them for delivering what they promised. Mojave does warn that these may become incompatible with later versions of the OS (what else is new?). The GOOD dongle to buy is...

    Anyone try to put a Samsung 960 Pro NVMe Drive in their 2013-2015 MacBook Pro?

    I own a (very expensive) 2TB Samsung 960 Pro M.2 drive. My 2015 15" MacBook Pro has a new 1TB Apple SSD. I'm thinking about putting the 1TB Apple SSD into my 2009/2010 MacPro tower (OWC PCI card) and putting the 2TB 960 Pro into the MacBook Pro using one of those adapters I see on Amazon...

    Beware of defective BCM* wifi/bt "Apple" cards

    I don't care where a card comes from. It can be a knockoff or OEM non-apple card. It just has to work. Neither of the last 2 worked. One was a BCM94360CS2 and one was a BCM943224PCIEBT2. The BCM94360CS2 had a physically broken connector. Used Mint Linux to verify if they work just to get...

    Bad wifi apple to M.2 adapters (BCM94360CS2 BCM943224PCIEBT2 BCM94331CD BCM94360CD Module Card to NGFF(M.2) Key A/E Adapter)

    Just a quick heads up, I've bought a number of Apple wifi cards and these apple to M.2 A/E slot adapters. Lately, I have been having issues. Some didn't do wifi, some didn't do bluetooth, the last one does nothing. They are all being installed on ASRock Z370 Gaming ITX motherboards (with...

    Good GPU -- $150 PowerColor RED DRAGON Radeon RX 570 DirectX 12 AXRX 570 8GBD5-3DHD/OC

    It's not a Vega, but initial testing with Valley shows it to perform better than my MSI RX580 and it is quiet. I bought this on black Friday for $150 from NewEgg. Finally getting a chance to test it out on a Z370 ASRock based system with Mojave installed. Reminder: Anything less than a Vega...

    Using a $13 Arctic Alpine 12 passive heatsink on an i3-8100 processor

    The i3-8100 is a 65w processor. The Alpine 12 is rated for a maximum of 47 watts but it's designed to run passively. I'll be cooling it with a 120mm fan. This will be interesting. I'll update this thread in a few days when I get it together and run some tests.

    Feedback needed for the i3-8350k processor

    I've noticed several people have used the i3-8350k processor in their builds. I am hoping Those that have will enter a few comments here. I am wondering if it "feels" like an older 4-core i7 or i5. I'd also like to know how far people have been able to overclock it since it has no...
