    Motherboard msi B550I Gaming Edge Wifi

    I had 8 tabs open. 4 online retailers and 4 local shops. I refreshed the tabs 3 times a day since June 16 and feel lucky i managed to get the one i have since it went back to 'out of stock' right after ordering.

    Not sure if this is the case here but, sometimes they can't ship motherboards internationally due to differing wi-fi band allocations/restrictions. [edit] I also ordered mine but don't expect to replace my b360 Intel board until the 4000's go on sale. Normally i would have held off and...

    Keep in mind that using unapproved or modified cooler mounting hardware on an AMD CPU voids the warranty.

    Thanks for Thanks for clarifying. I was wondering why some coolers did not fit. Coolers which use the standard AMD back plate should work. I wonder how accurate the PCPartPicker compatibility list is?

    In stock at Newegg Canada but they bumped the shipping from $8 to $20 since it ships from USA.

    Previous estimate timed out 2 days ago. Were quickly closing in on a month of me checking in 3 times a day.

    Motherboard Best VRM on B550I?

    M.2, remove two screws and it's gone. Not sure if it frees up a fan header.

    Motherboard Best VRM on B550I?

    Would something like this work on the MSI board? https://www.ebay.ca/itm/1x-PC-ATX-Computer-Case-Power-On-Supply-Reset-Switch-Connector-Cable/271398922840?hash=item3f30a2ea58:g:Q5sAAOxyTMhSB6MM I could route it so the switch is mounted behind the back panel.

    Motherboard ASUS B550I-Strix

    Found the manufacturer. Now to track one down at a reasonable price. https://www.delock.com/produkt/63998/merkmale.html Should also consider fitment on the second M.2 slot. Wish the connector was flat so i could use a back mounted m.2 slot.

    Motherboard ASUS B550I-Strix

    Is there a version of that with a NVMe connector? I found this USB 3 version but can't seem to find one with the USB 3.2 Gen 2 front panel header.

    Buying cheap Windows 10 licence key

    Not sure if legal or scam or even moral, but i can confirm the $2.00 ebay licenses have been working for me without issue for years. I have been doing volunteer work for Microsoft for over a decade so that's how i justify my decision to go the cheap route. If i asked nicely they would likely...

    Those single use fabric bags are very useful. I have two from EVGA which are now attached to my mic tripod boom stand as handy pouches for my Xbox controller and Sennheiser headphones.

    GPU Suggestions for cheapest 4k 120Hz GPU? (No gaming)

    Any Intel CPU with Intel UHD Graphics 630, like a Pentium Gold G5600 or an i3 8100, can run a 4K HDR TV without a video card. (the UHD part is important, regular Graphics 630s are much weaker) You just have to make absolutely sure the motherboard's "Onboard Video Chipset" spec features this...

    Enclosure ASROCK B450 Gaming ATX/AC missaligned shield on MX500 chasis

    If you mean the ITX/AC have just built one but it's packed away until i obtain a Ryzen 5 3600X so i can't take a picture. Mine was the same, the connector holes were mis-aligned, but i found there was a small bit of metal between the USB holes which was catching on the motherboard's USB port...
