    News New small (GaN) 300W power brick

    More, it's actually two chargers in a single plastic case with a single AC input but otherwise it's two fully independent USB C chargers. Also, backing any Kickstarter -- even a Navitas GaNFast charger -- during covid is, pardon my French, monumentally stupid. Wait unti it hits the market, if...

    News New small (GaN) 300W power brick

    I found something that suspiciously looks like the brick in question with a delivery time approx. 3–8 weeks and it only costs 670 EUR, a basement bargain. The price precluded me from enquiring further.

    Do you think there will be enough airflow? :) Also note the highly sophisticated temporary / boot (not sure yet) video card placement secured with a twist tie :) (note the photo does not run power to the riser -- it doesn't work that way but I am st00pid and forgot, also my BIOS only supports...

    If the 3300X is a taste of things to come then we are doomed. It's easier to buy powdered real unicorn horn than that thing. I gave up and bought a 3700X :D

    Log Lenovo M720Q Tiny router/firewall build with aftermarket 4 port NIC

    Wow, very nice! You might want to link to the card because the screw holes lining up like that is insanely lucky. I do not think there's any standard where the "baffle" is supposed to screw in.

    One big step ahead which worth a post in itself: the PCI6EPS428 indeed works! You can see the latest image in the album the 6 pin fits correctly and once the Remote pin is connected to ground the indicator LED goes green (this is visible in the photo) and I was able to measure 12V on the right...
