    A quick change M.2 device

    Reference the photo of my WD_BLACK SN750, a high performance 500 GB NVMe SSD. This version comes with the heat sink shown. I needed this device to be relocated to where I can change it out without a lot of work. So I made up a mounting plate and used a M.2 M-key cable adapter by Sintech...

    Last-Best ... Another scratch build

    Last-Best To set the stage I am sharing two photos of my “office/lab/machine shop”. I am very pleased with this work space. Anyway I have started a slow roll case project as an outlet for my need to be creative. The ITX Motherboard is an ASUS ROG STRIX B360-I Gaming with an Intel...

    neilhart's scratch build SFF case project - My Way # 21

    I am starting another Mini-ITX scratch build case. This is a keep busy project and I am going to use the Asus Z170I Pro Gaming system that I built last year. I am a big fan of the DAN case A4-SFX V3 and the LOUQE Ghost S1 case. I have one of each of those cases on order and may see them in...

    Upgrade MB with Mini PCI Express to BCM94360CS2 - OOB type support.

    I was looking for a WiFi/BT solution for my older hacks that do not have M.2 WiFi sockets. For example my Mini-iTX tower with an GA Z97N WiFi no longer had a WiFi radio (as I had moved it off to another project sometime in the past). These older machines have Mini PCI Express WiFi sockets and...

    neilhart's first Kaby Lake scratch build case project

    I have decided to scratch build a Kaby Lake system in the mini-itx form factor. I had wanted to use a S4 Mini case from Josh Sniffen (NFC Systems) but I learned that one will not be available in the short term, thus the scratch build. I will come back and do that project when the case is in my...

    RF Cables for m.2 WiFi/BT cards... very small

    The current crop of radio cards for the m.2 interface are very small. Much smaller the the 1/2 Mini-PCIe cards. I am dealing with the BCM94352Z WiFi/BT card for the m.2 socket. I needed RF Cables for my G4 Cube project and found that this card requires cables with the "MHF4" connector. Here is...

    X58 Sierra - Common Shutdown Problem

    Just installed Sierra on my GA-EX58—UD3R and is now as one of three boot options along side Yosemite and El Capitan. The outstanding problem is that shutdown leaves the fans running. This is common problem across the three OS installations. After a good number of searches, I find that this...

    First Hackintosh build

    Well VGA is not supported by Apple. You may find that it works but your are on your own if does not work or has issues. And your motherboard is UEFI however I would update the BIOS as there are 16 versions going back to 2012. You could install OS X without your GPU installed and then add it...

    Need help with parts to hackintosh

    Sean you do not need a GPU for a hackintosh build. The GTX 780 is an older OS X compatible GPU. It is a top performer (see PassMark rating), and 3+ years old… meaning it draws more power then the newer versions. The CPU is another story. The Broadwell low power i7 5775C with Intel...

    Skylake issue with GTX 650 TI

    For what it’s worth I have encountered an GPU card incompatibility with a Zotac GTX 650 TI card that won’t boot into El Capitan on either of my two Skylake systems. This was with El Capitan 10.11.2 and Clover v3320 and v3330. And to be fair, the systems boot and can be addressed via Screen...
