    AM4 Thin ITX motherboards, They do exist!

    Asrock's support team doesnt always make the most sense, but I do have a small bit of information, idk if it will help or not, as most of it is repeated information, but for anyone else this may also help. I had emailed them, and the conversation went as follows: 7/4/2019, Me: Hello, I was...

    Bought RX 560 for $45 after shipping. also bought power button board for $15. I will probably cut parts out of 2mm thick acrylic with a saw because i dont have 3d printer... I mean sure, I could get an ender 3 or something... but idk. Relatively, a piece of acrylic and a handsaw would be so much...

    This project is postponed for the next few months due to a few reasons: 1. The prices of pretty much every cryptocurrency took a huge plunge. 2. I'm switching my [email protected] power to a team of a youtuber whose discord server I moderate where I won't be able to earn any crypto. In fact, I might...

    After reviewing gpus briefly, i realized that i had a few more options than i previously considered. My requirements were as follows: must have <130W power draw must be roughly equivalent to RX 460 performance, or close to GTX 1050 or RX 560 performance after an overclock under 130W power draw...

    forgot to mention i got the ssd. slotted in to my adapter board fine. A lot of the other adapters and stuff have really long estimated arrival times, and me being the clueless person I am, just realized its because of coronavirus.

    I used all the rest of the gift card on some cheap 60mm Chinese fans, that are 3 pin so I don't have to peg then 100% all the time. I also got a potentiometer type thingy to control it because id rather not have it running 100% all the time. Also on the gpu side of things, I'm going to at least...

    Bigger update: at the best of times, the crypto trade i had set went through. I now have 115 nano(XRB), and literally right at this moment it is at its highest price this month. i had been debating whether to wait or not, but whatever. 115*1.18= ~$135

    update: I was able to get this from a broken laptop. For free. These things are pretty expensive, and I might be able to get another for 8GB total. This will significantly reduce the time and money to make this into a working system. EDIT: idk why but maybe the photo is broken...
