    Private Internet Access VPN, no problems at all to max out a 900/900 connection for torrents.

    Is this peak idiocy in case designs?

    It was also available in silver. I remember someone had it re-anodized in red back in the day.

    Is this peak idiocy in case designs?

    I don't think anyone had 300mm GPUs in mind 16 years ago when these cases were released. Still with a push something around 290-295mm could fit without removing the drive cage.

    I still use the PC-777b aka "Snail Case" as my daily driver.

    The custom/unique case thread.

    Not easy to do mitre joints with a CNC which I guess what is used here.

    HAF 932 stuffing the maximum amount of HDDs in it

    I use two of these in my LianLi PC-777: I swapped the 80mm fans for Noctua so they are quiet now.

    Interesting indeed, what are the plans for cable management and such?

    Do people actually upgrade just the CPU and keep using existing motherboard?

    Earlier this week I was planning on upgrading my E5-1650 v3 to an E5-2687W v4. Well I killed the motherboard when trying to upgrade the BIOS to add support for the v4 CPU's. So now I get to upgrade CPU, motherboard and RAM to a 5900X based setup instead. But in general I normally upgrade so...

    Use a razor blade and then Go Gone. I have had my bottle since 2009 and I have yet to come across any sticker glue that it can't remove. That includes 30 year old price tags under ornaments.

    Forum performance

    Forum performance

    I'm on a 900/900 connection and it feels like dialup. The rest of the forum is fast, just not the hosted images.

    Forum performance

    I have noticed over the past week that images hosted on the forum have become extremely slow to load. We are talking 15 minutes for one page of the funny images thread to load (if at all). Do we need to hire more hamsters to turn the wheels?

    Robotics Kit? (Science project with kid)

    See if you can find something over at Lynxmotion within your budget. They have been in the business for over 20 years as I bought a kit there back in 1998. LEGO Mindstorm is another solid suggestion, but not that cheap either.
