    Going to tokyo in two weeks, any cool PC hardware places to visit?

    During the socket 7/462/939/AM2 era in Akihabara you could find soooooo much used PC stuff since the new items were very expensive. I did buy a couple of mobos that were not found in the states but the used market was just on a next level. Now, not so much. The Otaku Manga craze really changed...

    In Akihibara Yodabashi Camera is a good place to buy new stuff for PC's, and if you take your passport with you ask about buying items "tax free". It's a bit of a process but not difficult to do as they have staff that do speak english that can help. There are other places as well that sell PC...

    AMD X570 ITX Motherboards

    I watched a Japaenese review of the Asrock X570 phantom Gaming and it seems that Asrock is still not doing ITX boards right, as they have allot of SMD parts in the keep out area on top and on bottom, especially around the mounting holes on the back of the mobo. I had this same issue with a FM2+...

    28 core ITX from ASRock Rack EPC621D4I-2M

    Yes, the cable in the shift (the old one, it seems there is a new one out for the case) is not the best. Once you fold it over to a shape it has to stay that way, as I found out the hard way. O

    28 core ITX from ASRock Rack EPC621D4I-2M

    I can comfirm that PCIe 4.0 and a riser cable will not work (current non 4.0 cables). I have the evolv shift and the riser cable will not run 4.0 period. I have to force the slot to run at 3.0 to use my PC. O
