    MiSTer FPGA - Retro Console Hardware

    Got the stuff I ordered. The switches are...bigger than expected. Guess that happens when you don't even look at the specs. XD The mean well didn't come with an AC cable...hadn't considered that. XD The 5-way DC splitter works, the fans work (loud, as expected), phono plug looks good, gpio...

    Microsoft enables Linux GUI applications in Windows 10 .... TF?

    Why not? Sure would make testing Edge Linux easier if you could build and run it on Windows. :p

    Help installing hardtubing

    I haven't used petg or acrylic, so I could be wrong, but I think they will have some movement normally (just because of how smooth the surface is). If you're worried, you could build a loop temporarily outside of the case and fill it with water, run it for a while and see if it leaks. Just make...

    Help installing hardtubing

    You have same brand fittings and tube? Tubes can vary in dimensions (ID and OD) between brands, enough to cause fitment issues.

    MiSTer FPGA - Retro Console Hardware

    It's a couple mm off, so I can only use two screws in the diagonal with it slightly ascew, or two on one of the long sides (which I don't like). And it's not close to matching a single set of 2.5" drive holes, it just happens to work in this case due to the design of the bracket, the way they...

    They work in reverse too, right? Generate a bunch of heat, and it puts out electricity? Free energy!

    Best Way to Move a Rack

    Yeah, put them in boxes/crates or on a small pallet, and strap'em down. Make sure whoever moves them has someone helping so they don't get dropped.

    Mechanical pencils with long tips work well, as long as the pin isn't too big for your pen(cil).

    Are those (un)intentional solder bridges just south of that connector, or is that something else I see?

    Got my ML-10 in. Plus side, Looks like I can mount the DE10-nano on the HDD bracket (hanging upside down in the case), although I lose the top (120/140mm) fan in the short case config if I do...wasn't planning to use one anyway. Otoh, there's really not much room for much else. Planning to put...

    If it makes the room that hot, then I think the heatsink and tim were doing their job properly. Ambient was just too hot.

    If you replaced ALL the dead parts, all at once, then it might work. But the GPU itself may be dead. Is probably dead, in fact.

    Inductors are little antennas which induce a current when electromagnetic waves are present (as in a microwave), or emit electromagnetic waves when current is passed through them.
