    VIA EPIA 800 missing S-Video

    Any chance I could put it back in? I imagine it'd need an IC or two, and some resistors/caps that were also left out, but I'm not certain on that. Will have pics later on. The S-Vid connector itself is under the parallel port, at least one through-hole (the others are either pads or filled...

    486 Repair (or, my Ni/MH is leaking!)

    So I recently found again the Packard Bell my dad let me play with as a kid, and he let me have it. Concerned with the condition of the board (as it had already been losing the BIOS date/time and config when I was a kid), I opened it up, only to find this: Well, that and a lot of dust, a...

    Latest Fx Android Beta Hiding Soft Buttons

    The latest Firefox Beta for Android seems to be hiding the soft buttons (back, home, etc) as well as the notification bar when browsing [H]. I hadn't noticed this on an earlier version, but I thought maybe xenforo got updated and that (anti-)feature was added, and perhaps it was just...

    USB-C Cable Arcing on Disconnect

    I have an Anker USB-C cable which is hooked up to my PC for charging/data transfer. I noticed that when I disconnect it, it arcs inside the cable's connector end several times (about 5 on average, in quick bursts). Is this normal/expected behavior?

    AMD InWin 301 Custom Loop

    This one could take a while, just due to the difficulty. Going to be stuffing an mATX motherboard and a 280mm res into the InWin 301, hopefully without any permanant modification to the case. So far, I've stripped out everything I can without cutting or drilling, including the front panel...

    Asus AM4 commercial (CSM) Boards

    Anybody have one? I'm curious about the extra features they have, especially ECC support (I assume unbuffered, but regardless...). Are there any particularly useful features which set them apart from their non-CSM boards? They aren't much more expensive, so I figure the hardware is basically...

    SFF Platform Reviews?

    Are there any websites/blogs posting reviews of itx systems? Looking for power-consumption specifically (AMD APU itx system power, for example), but I would be interested in reviews focused on other things as well (board layout, chipsets, etc). I'm aware of buildzoid, but can't watch his videos...

    Any new boards in the pipes?

    Are there new boards coming down the pipes, or should I just bite the bullet? Really don't want to spend almost $200 on a b350/450, especially if 550 is around the corner. Lookin to do a sff build, but seems like everything is sold out or sold by a third party for 130%. Even the matx boards are...

    Bclk, Cache Speed, L2 >= L1? (Ryzen)

    After updating to latest bios, I was trying different OC settings, and while testing for mem stability I saw this: L1 Cache: 58.67GB/s L2 Cache: 58.98GB/s Now, I know it was probably a fluke/error in the speed detection, but is it even possible for the L2 cache to be faster than the L1 cache...

    Get'em while they're hot! ;) Prices from $51 to $67-ish. Edit: ordered mine on the 3rd, still no shipping notification (as of 3/8/17), so they must be going through a bit of volume. When I ordered my EK-Revo pump top a while back, it shipped out the next day.

    EK Revo D5 Pump Tops/Reservoirs

    Car LED Halos for Case Fans?

    So, I'm kinda disappointed in the lack of good static-pressure fans with LEDs, and I'm not convinced an LED strip placed around/behind my fans would look as good as integrated LEDs, nor would I like to drill holes in my fans. o_O So I was browsing around, saw these, and thought, "hmm, I...
