    Prototype Lazer3D ST8 - Slim Tower Case

    How strict is the new 105mm cpu cooler height? Because that's only 5mm away from the 110mm height of the NH D9L which would allow for taller ram and better cooling on boards like the ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming-ITX/TB3 which can't fit the lower profile coolers due to the chipset heatsink.

    I was looking for a small 12V AC-DC unit and I found this interesting Meanwell unit on Mouser which is very slim with dimensions of 119*38*18mm. However it appears to be a part of some larger configurable power supply unit and I haven't been able to find out if it is usable as a standalone...

    (Need Advice) Ryzen 3800X/3900X/3950X

    If you are already fine with the 8 cores of the 3800X then you should probably just get the 3700X and possibly try to overclock. You could also probably buy the 3800X and undervolt, but why not save $70 and buy the 65 watt part in the first place?

    Chipset-less Mini-Itx Ryzen 3rd Gen Motherboard

    Interesting idea about a motherboard with no chipset from Buildzoid

    The new site is essentially a modern piece of bloatware junk.

    I think that the 'old' forum was miles ahead of most other similar forums and the change in software was unnecessary. Currently I see no improvements in the core post system and the only new features that I've seen have been the discord integration and the ability to make tables (which is pretty...

    Phone thread

    I recently switched to a Sony Xperia XZ Premium from and Iphone 6 and it is so much faster and smoother to use, although I am still getting used to the Android Oreo. I really like it and the display is awesome, if overkill. I'm hopeful that I'll get the fingerprint reader to work, but I'm still...

    Completed Custom_MOD MINI

    I ran the MSI RX560 over a (good) riser and performance was significantly decreased. It was struggling to run Minecraft at 480p 30 FPS. I plugged it in to the PCIe slot and it managed 1080p 60 FPS flawlessly.
