    The new site is essentially a modern piece of bloatware junk.

    To be honest, since the 'upgrade' i find myself using these forums less. The watched list is gone, all the images under text, etc, makes everything unreadable, and the drop-down on the left doesn't have each sub-forum listed to make it easier to navigate, but hey, what do i know...

    More G-unique BTO PSUs are now available(direct order)

    wirPL, If you do a search on eBay for a 'HP EliteOne Power Supply', you should be able to find a 160-200w power brick that is similar (if not the same) as the one in the photo.

    Powering 3 monitors with one brick?

    As stated, I'm sure you could find one that is rated higher. Maybe something like the following (it is however its a 4 way splitter for CCTV)...

    Powering 3 monitors with one brick?

    How about something like https://smile.amazon.co.uk/Andoer%C2%AE-Multi-interface-Connecting-Effects-Adapter/dp/B014HB4TS6/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1548266630&sr=8-3&keywords=pedal+power+cable+splitter? This one is rated for 9-18v, but i'm sure ive seen ones that are rated higher.

    Mini-Splash, about a Gallon water cooled SFF gaming PC

    Just a quick idea, couldn't you cut the 5 power wires on the riser cable and add some diodes to them? If done properly, the current would only flow in one direction (from the board to the card).

    Concept External “deskmate” radiator with integrated reservoir

    What your describing reminds me of the Alphacool Eiswand 360 https://www.aquatuning.co.uk/water-cooling/kits-systems-and-aios/external-kits/21360/alphacool-eiswand-360-cpu-black?c=2637, Just not as big.

    Announcement Lazer3D Launches the HT5 - and a Giveaway!

    I would have to say my favorite would be the HT5 for a HTPC and the LZ7 for a mini pc.

    Prototyping Project Orthrus - Smallest SLI mATX case (V2)

    @LukeD Guessing this case uses Li-Heat B-Type cables? I'm assuming (looking at other photos in this thread) there's not enough space at the bottom for people to use 2no D-type (or similar) cables?

    Extra tiny Dell video card - 4GB 940MX and MX150

    Looking at PCie specifications its likely to not be 8X as that would need a total of 98 pins (typically 49 pins per side of the card). Its possible that its a 4x PCIe with shared grounds or MiniPCI express (52-pin) with the +12v power on the second tab... Defiantly looks interesting.

    [SFF Network] Geeek A30 Case Review - Flat Pack Awesomeness?

    @Reldey, I checked last night no there is no space for a rad at the top. The supplied 25mm fans fit with minimal clearance (maybe 5-10mm) for the riser cable above the motherboard.

    [SFF Network] Geeek A30 Case Review - Flat Pack Awesomeness?

    @confusis Lol, tell me about it, my fingers still ache just thinking about it... i did have the idea of cutting a thing strip of aluminium and screwing it to the other side of the standoffs, just not got around to doing it yet. Good write up btw, if i hadn't have already bought the case already...
