    Herman Miller 29% Off Logitech Embody, 20% off other chairs, Free Shipping

    Sat on an Aeron for about 12 years at work.. they're awesome. The only downside about mesh seating surface is that it wears holes in your pants. When it expands and contracts when sitting/standing/shifting in the seat, as it acts like little scissors or a cheese grater on your pants. The...

    How come none of the mechanical keyboard last more than 3 year, what happens to 50M keystroke guarantee?

    I don't have a website. You can get round keycaps if you want. There are tens of thousands of options for keycaps on custom keyboards.

    I have been building custom mechanical keyboards for the past 10 years. They all still work fine, apart from the worn ABS keycaps on some.

    It's all about personal preferences when building a keyboard. You can choose the parts you want. As for warranty, who knows, maybe ask the sellers.

    Best is subjective. But by wooden, do you mean just the case/chassis of it? I built one last year of that style. I'll share my specs with you: - GH60 Wood Case (Walnut color) - Melgeek MJ64 PCB - MKzealots MJ64 Anodized Black keyboard plate - Durock V2 Stabilizers - Outemu Silent Gray switches -...

    Nvidia 4090 meltdown maybe an answer

    It's not user error, or we would have seen melting connectors over and over again with the same people historically using ATX, EPS, PCIe 6/8-pin, etc connectors. Poor design and/or build quality plain and simple. We see the same thing with the chinesium knockoffs of 4-pin molex, sata power...

    The Post Your Old/Retro Builds Thread

    Yes, it is a Power PC 5200B CPU, as in Motorola/IBM/Apple type processor of the era. The PCI slot does include the AGP riser. Not 100% sure how it works as I haven't looked into the design used, but it works lol.

    scsi hard drive 50 pin needed

    Does it need to be a full mechanical spinning disk? I gave up on those after trying to buy 6 or 7 different ones for my Amiga 2000.. the most reliable one I found lasted for about a month before it died. Settled for a 68-pin with a 50-pin adapter since they're less than $20 on Ebay and much more...

    The Post Your Old/Retro Builds Thread

    Nice.. That reminds me I need to get my crossfire build up and running. I have a Sapphire Pure PC-A9RD580 with two X1950XTX's in storage that need to be unboxed. I've never done a crossfire build before.
