Thank you - much appreciated!
It's pretty silent - I believe it's set to default, medium flow. It was a little loud during the leak test because it was pushing everything through the loop for the first time. Flow seems good, granted I haven't seen temps on the GPU during load, but CPU by itself looks fine. Gonna nag my friend to try gaming on this...
I threw some 1080p videos its way, seems to be fine - didn't test with 4K. Oh yeah, I nuke all Windows 10 apps with PowerShell, as well as OneDrive and the like. Telemetry may get reactivated during updates, which is why PiHole is there on my home network. :)
Welp, damn, had no idea - thanks for the pointer! Ah well, it's on its way.
I had a friend who once printed out a 12 layer PCB for fun, I agree, it's fascinating how many things small chips have. I do prefer ATX boards just because you can pack more power into them because why not?
Oh woop! Glad she's enjoying it - hopefully my dad will like it.
Heh, whoops - guess this is what I get for publishing this so late and tired :P Forgot the more important component - the PSU. It's a picoPSU, specifically Mini-Box picoPSU-160-XT and the power brick I used for it can be found here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007XVE11S/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
The annoying thing here is that those D-barrels aren't standardized too well, so make sure the plugs match.
Sorry about the late reply! I didn't have any issues - the IO shield/panel fit quite nicely. Maybe try seeing if you have any screw supports that weren't removed? Honestly tilting the board IO side first to click it in place and then lowering it onto the screw mounts is what does it.
Love the all-black color scheme! As the cool kids would say, it's on fleek. :D
I'd love to see them - thanks for that!
Hey ya! So, I already had that. Funny enough, when I hit "Apply", the settings just reset. What worked for me was going into Power Options, changing what the power buttons do and disabling "fast bootup". No I have no LEDs when the desktop is turned off - yay :P
Yeah see I did the BIOS thing already :P I will be testing the AURA suggestion from the other comment tonight to see if it works.
I have to see if I have that much clearance in the back - thanks for the link!
AMD has their own variants, though. Granted, not as severe or as many though.
Thank you kindly! :D
I have 6 users on there, so I kind of needed the extra kick :)
With subtitles being burned in - it's just fine. No lagging or anything (I guess unless I skip forward/back too much, but that's to be expected). For resolutions less than 4K, Plex actually throttles the transcoding because the CPU is working faster than required. :)
Looks like eBay has some....for absurdly high prices :P
You're very welcome! Ah see, I feel like I'm limited if I'm building specifically for a Hackintosh since not everything is supported. I have a MacBook Pro for work and it.....I am not a fan :P
It's nice to see that Hackintoshes are still around! I like the wall-mounted monitor and the frontal fan view. It's rather....lit...I'll see myself out.
Good job! :D
Thanks for this! I do want to stick with nVidia though - drivers are more stable than Radeon, from what I have heard and read (and past experience).
