    Log [12V] LiGHTPC ...a 5L gaming HTPC...

    Can you please indicate where that information is available on the website for the M2426, it doesn't seem to be documented anywhere, just that it comes with 2 connectors that support PS_On and 5VSB, it doesn't specify if there is any difference between them or if one is merely a duplicate of the...

    What's the issue with leaving the PCIe power plug powered all the time. I've built multiple systems with either the EPS or GPU connected to a constant 12V source and no issues. If the system isn't actively on neither the CPU or GPU will actually pull any power even if there is 12V present on...

    Concept Sans MK II-10.3L 240/280AIO low airflow resistance case

    I think the project might have been canceled. It was initially meant to release over the summer, its been pushed back numerous times. Last semi official statement was that it was meant to be end of August/beginning of September. I ordered 2 (one direct from Taobao - the site states they actually...

    There really is no need for better cooling, it will maintain its max all core boost clock indefinitely under an all core load (CB r20) and is still about 20-30C off from thermal throttling. Maybe the backplate good be tidied up a little, but I feel the current mesh one does a good job of...

    Log Opinions on HTPC Build

    I think it will be quite a few years before mainstream TV and movies go past 4K HDR, the majority of most broadcast TV is still 1080P. Besides even if you have the CPU power to handle 8K (or whatever the future holds) you would still need outputs that can handle that transmission meaning an...

    Need DC-DC PSU Help

    If you aren't running to it's full capacity the heatsink material can be removed. Also on one of my builds I made a little 24 pin extension cable allowing me to move the HDPlex an inch or so when I was tight on mounting space.

    What kind of media are you going to be consuming, seems very overkill for purely web browsing and media consumption.

    Need DC-DC PSU Help

    No more chance of that powerbrick causing a fire than any off brand Chinese made laptop adapter. But if you are really concerned then why not a HDPlex and use any reputable (i.e. Dell, HP, etc) 19V laptop powerbrick.

    Honestly there isn't much I would do differently, maybe get a m.2 to PCIe adapter with a custom cable length and that is about it, not that it makes any difference when it's assembled. It has been great, I have just realized it was overkill for my needs and has gotten very little use. I built...

    Advice ITX Case

    I'm confused, do you need the standard sandwich layout (GPU on left, CPU on right when looking from the front) or do you need the other way around. If so I'd probably suggest the Aklla A4 v2 or Pro (there are integrated watercooled options with room for 280/240mm AIO). If you need the other way...
