    Off Topic Faster OS for my celeron netbook

    The ripple doesn't bother me, because dynamo mini does smooth that as a bonus to stepping down the voltages. Plus I'm going to return it after a week, it's way too big. The issue I mentioned was that sometimes it needs to be unplugged then replugged to wall again after a shutdown. I caught...

    IWILL ZMAXDP Power Supply Replacement

    nForce! brings back many memories.. Have to say though, it's really clean. Must've been filthy before, job well done. Do you have a use planned for an XP machine though? If I'm in your shoes I'd just go for Linux for anything, really.

    Off Topic Faster OS for my celeron netbook

    He might be talking about the pcb color scheme. Something is indeed off about white pcb with black overtones /s. Update: FWIW, this supply is rather unreliable - consistently need to be power cycled once in a while, twice already today. It's not really an IT grade supply (1% ripple that's...

    Yesterday I finally got free time to do the migration to ssd... there's good news and bad news though... Bad news first - my plan was just to connect the hdd from the laptop to my main, which is an S4M-C with Hdplex 160W internal brick, then clone it to my spare 850 evo. All I did was unplug...

    Concept Help with power delivery [STX+GPU]

    Read the diagram. It's the plug. Your add2psu is the header/socket. Anyway - just look at wire color.

    HDPlex 400W AC-DC Adapter

    It was fine for me, I mean - no circuit on that side so it should be. And modern pcbs (on the gpu side) are coated. I was just cautious if I'd made straight brackets the edges could be sharp enough to scratch them

    Announcement Welcome to SFF.Network. We're just getting started.

    Love the font, I'm (always) on mobile (android), this is much more modern and easy on the eyes. Not entirely sold on red on black scheme, since this particular red has an aggresive tone to it, compared to the old calmer blue. Like, I feel that there must be some other, less violent shade of...

    Off Topic How to reduce monitor brightness in Win10

    I personally think it is a combination of flat (metro) design and poorly thought color scheme that is the root of this issue. They ought to take a page out of ubuntu UI these days..

    Off Topic How to reduce monitor brightness in Win10

    Yea I think you need less not more light... I see what you did there ^^ Anywho... try enabling dark mode. Explorer won't be affected by this setting however, so you can try manually install build 1809 to get dark explorer. I've done this, while I like it, the contrast is low so it's not super...
