Re: Need help in getting a fan controller

If your motherboard has the type of header you need then all you need is a splitter for the motherboard header and you can control the whole setup via your motherboard's RGB software.

This is a good example of what each one can do:

Re: GPU Dropping to 0% Load causing game freezing

What do you mean? I had the event viewer open. When the game would freeze, there were no new messages for errors or anything. Izidore88 was a spammer, just posting comments to get his thread count up, then would have eventually hit with malware links and what not. User is now banned and posts delet...

I tried sending a PM as well (Seat F-20), but it's just sitting in the outbox for some odd reason.
It sits in the Outbox until the recipient opens it, then it moves to Sent.

Re: Swapping radiators on a corsair AIO

You can do that, I have read about this for about as long as AIOs have been a thing.

Here are a couple of videos (I have not watched them) that cover the subject:

Re: Modem for xFinity

To me it makes no sense to pay for the rental of a modem now that it is $10+ per month. Once the price went up to double digits I started looking and purchased my own. I use this one and couldn't be happier with it: ARRIS SURFboard (32x8) DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem, 1.4 Gbps Max Speed. Certified for Com...

The Fans and The Lighting

I used CaseLabs ( RIP :cry: ) FlexBay Fan/Radiator Mounts for the fans in the front and the rear of the case so they would match and would look like they belong together. The gun metal color matched the mod exactly, and I love the unusual grill pattern they used to use (reminds me of Star Wars). htt...

The Wiring & GPU

I had never made my own wires before but I wanted ALL of this Mod to be made by me this time. So although I was going to need custom wires, I didn't want anything fancy that would look new and not match the time period or rugged look of the mod. I searched online through a ton of different options a...

The Wood Base

I had never built anything out of wood before, so YouTube to the rescue! Watched a few videos on how to make a box, using pocket holes, and multi-layer staining, and I'm off! https://i.postimg.cc/Mp6XYW3k/IMG-7495.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/CK6Z1W43/IMG-7488.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/sgmGFBGD/IMG-7490....
