    ASROCK B450 Gaming ATX/AC missaligned shield on MX500 chasis

    Yes. I posted this thread today. I had to upgrade the kernel to be able to use the graphics component of the processor. Otherways it used software rendering.

    ASROCK B450 Gaming ac/itx with 2200GE on MX500 chassis

    I think I have this finally working with Linux Mint. Initially had problems with the display and had to use nomodeset to boot. I ended upgrading the BIOS to 3.20 and then used ukuu to upgrade kernel to 5.1. It has taken me a while because things have changed quite a bit since I last...

    ASROCK B450 Gaming ATX/AC missaligned shield on MX500 chasis

    I finally had the time to reset the motherboard in place. I think the problem were the grounding tabs on the HDMI and display port. One way or another now it is aligned. Thank you again.

    ASROCK B450 Gaming ATX/AC missaligned shield on MX500 chasis

    Yes, ITX/AC. I will give it a try. Some of the holes work (marginally). Hopefully your tip will solve this problem. In the mean time, I have run into problems installing Linux Mint on this mobo with a 2200GE and it does not seem to get along with the graphics hardware. I have upgraded...

    ASROCK B450 Gaming ATX/AC missaligned shield on MX500 chasis

    The shield holes are too low and some of the connectors become unusable. I will post a picture when I have a chance. Has anyone experienced something like that ?

    USB3 20-pin cables not good for small form factor

    I have been looking for the equivalent cable for a 20-pin to 8-pin USB2 and they don't seem to exist in female to female ends.

    USB3 20-pin cables not good for small form factor

    I am building a system with 2x USB3 ports in the front and have found the 20/20 cable to be a pain in terms of bulkiness and lack of flexibility. At least, they should be made with silicone insulation to make them more flexible. Also, the latching of the connectors is also a pain...

    Realan K3

    I see, it is pretty limited, although the holes are nice size. I am about to do a build on a MX500 case, small holes all over...

    So you went from the stock cooler heat sink with the Titan fan, back to the stock fan without spacers? Is it better because the fan top is so close to the case top that the air cannot recirculate? Or was it that the TITAN does not give enough flow?

    Recomendation for PCIe adapter for M.2 NVMe

    I need one of these. I know there are plenty out there, but it seems that some are crap and some rather pricey. Any one with experience? What brand/model and or link?

    B450i Mini itx Motherboards

    IIRC you are running the MSI. Why did you chose the adapter over the under M.2? Easy of access ? I may end using both with NVME. I am leaning toward the ASROCK because of the USB support. Waiting for 2200GE.

    B450i Mini itx Motherboards

    Are you running an APU? Am I wrong saying that the second M.2 is disabled when a Raven is installed? If the ASUS can run a 2400G and have both M.2 NVMEs active, then I may change my mind about the build I am entertaining.
