    The SFX PSU's keep on coming: FSP set to launch 500W and 600W 'Dagger' line

    FSP is the OEM for the SX550. I'm not sure if SilverStone uses them on the ATX side of things.

    Chimera Industries Cerberus: The 18L, mATX, USA-made enclosure

    That'd work I guess. But the 4-pin peripheral (it's not technically Molex) only has one 12V line so a dual "Molex" to 4-pin would be better. That's another option, it's just a matter of rearranging the pins for the 4-pin CPU or that plus doubling a ground for 8-pin EPS. That's still planned...

    SilverStone SX650-G and SX500-G SFX PSU

    We won't know until someone tests it.

    Any hopes for single-slot vega card?

    Well, he mentioned the ATI buyout and that was even earlier :p

    GIGABYTE AB350N-Gaming WIFI

    You can hit "Shift + F10" while in the installer to open a command prompt then use the Diskpart clean command to clear all partitions, MFT, bootloader, etc. https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/52129-disk-clean-clean-all-diskpart-command.html clean /all does a secure wipe but that's...

    Any hopes for single-slot vega card?

    Only the last few generations. The Radeon HD 5870 was a big leap forward in GPU perf/watt and Nvidia's very late response to it was a card that had the running joke of being able to fry an egg on: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=gtx+480+fry+egg

    Chimera Industries Cerberus: The 18L, mATX, USA-made enclosure

    That extra 4-pin connector on the SX800-LTI is for voltage sensing on the 24-pin, it is not 4-pin CPU power.

    Going Threadripper, anyone else? (strategies)

    I think DX12 gets way more credit than it's due, because using DX12 for a game does not magically mean it'll have amazing multi-GPU support. It'll still require the developers to spend time making sure the game takes advantage of the hardware and they've historically been bad at it even when...

    NCase M1 Mining Project

    Basically PCIe lane is bandwidth and gen is speed. It looks to be USB 3.0 wiring which should ideally be capable of about 2.0 x1 transfer rates, so 3.0 is probably out of the question since PCIe is very sensitive to EMI.

    Vega still supports CrossFire, it's just that AMD seems to be considering reducing the resources they devote to XFire development.

    Hmm, I guess even if the Delock could do 3.0 the USB cable probably can't sustain it and will drop the connection to 2.0 anyway. That length of riser is tricky for a quality one for gaming, probably a good question for the riser thread.

    A single EPS connector is fine as long as the OC isn't completely maxed out.

    PCI-E Bifurcation

    What's the mechanism for that? The motherboard will negotiate with the video card to allow full power on a x16 link but I'm not aware of any way for the motherboard to know to limit power with a x16 riser.

    I'd be curious if it actually can work at PCIe 3.0 since it doesn't look that different than the BPlus adapter.
