How is that HDD, I just bought a 2.5 1Tb Firecuda SSHD and id like to know how those perform in comparison. Mine takes like 9 seconds to boot on UEFI, other programs and installs are pretty snappy too.
How is Gemini Lake doing?
Run Userbench so we can get some data on the site.
Im in love with the monitor stand.
Did this motherboard come with the bios factory updated for Kabylake?
How are your temperatures? The coolers of choice; not that they wont be capable of keeping the CPU and GPU under their limits, but... they'r pretty bad options.
Edit: NVM about the CPU cooler, but what about the GPU?
He is planning on changing the processor later. Probably.
Oh whoops, sorry didn't know that.
Well two different ways of achieving the same, but yours is more elegant and leaves you the ports on the back.
If you want USB 3 on the front you could use this passthrough cable: https://www.amazon.com/SIENOC-Header-Adapter-20Pin-Motherboard/dp/B018XFSVG8/ref=sr_1_16?ie=UTF8&qid=1487049738&sr=8-16&keywords=usb+3+to++pin
How's that SATA controller? Do you recommend it? Nice server BTW.
Why did staff delete tons of comments?
If you don't care about noise, just grab a SanAce 120 and snap into the cheapest tower cooler you find xD
Quiet? ACX 980Ti? u wot m8?
Well I still don't get the "I want an overclocked i5 because its more expensive" thing but meh. Does your dad know about hardware? Maybe though the processor would have an effect on performance...
I wanted to buy dead graphics cards to bake them lol.
I was just planing on getting a used 690, so 10/10 for the 690, but why not a tower cooler? like dude, ITX doesn't mean low profile lol.
Sorry to say the GPU is probably worse than the integrated graphics. But you probably got it for the VGA.
48/31 GG WP
Dual Poseidons bruh, DUAL.... BRUUUHHHH.
Nice PC for the office but, Im sorry to say, but the difference between the integrated graphics and the GPU you bought is minimal.
Why dont you set the CPU cooler in pull and have the power supply suck air directly from it.
Wow, this is a great idea, better than my ultra small MITX idea for use with any TV you found on your way. Cause you aint finding any TVs in an meterological expedition or whatever.
Thinking about it I would like to build one of this but in an aluminium case with the IO panel in the inside instead.
Also I was thinking on a way to mount an external radiator so you could splash/dirtProof the electronics and close the case with the system still running.
Another good idea is a LiPo/LiFePo4 based battery pack wired to a 12/24V PSU.
Then you could go crazy by adding rollable solar panels for recharging the system wherever you are.
Looks like a noctua fan on that TFX power supply, nice addition.
Nice PC review. Its funny my writing abilities logic is the same.
Looks like a nice PC I could build for someone who want to feel free to do anything in it with little money.
Would actually consider it for a friend who wants to build a PC on 250-290 USD plus Power supply I have. But instead I will probably give him my video card (Nvidia Zotac 630 synergy) and pair it with a Pentium G3258.
