    AJAZZ Introduces AC067 Cheese-themed 65% Mechanical Keyboard

    The article says the case is CNC-machined and then anodised. I would not think it makes any sense to produce new injection moulds for a limited run meme product like this.

    Fantech MAXFIT67 RGB Mechanical Hotswap Keyboard

    Indeed, I bought into the very first run of TADA68 from Originative (original plastic injection moulded casing, cheap feeling and rattly plate-mount stabs, slightly dodgy firmware and re-mapping that requires using a random website to generate a .bin). The board itself was a bit of a paradox...

    Fantech MAXFIT67 RGB Mechanical Hotswap Keyboard

    Counterpoint, 65% is big enough and I don't have to move my hands off the home position just to get to the Function F1-F12 keys while still having dedicated arrows (in fact, 60% is big enough for most people, but standalone arrows seems to be a desirable feature). I also disagree with the bit...

    1st Player SFX 750 W Platinum

    Not just the quality of the fan, that fan speed/response curve looks horrific. What even is the point of a low power passive mode if you're not gonna ramp the fan gracefully?

    Samsung Reportedly Raising Prices for Its SSD Lineup in Early 2022, Amidst Lower Market Pricing

    My mistake, with all the SSD OEMs getting caught switching components around recently, it's difficult to remember which one was busted for what components.

    Samsung Reportedly Raising Prices for Its SSD Lineup in Early 2022, Amidst Lower Market Pricing

    No. He meant the Sn570, not SN750. The SN570 is a recent release (mid-2021) that was meant to be a replacement to the SN550 which was caught in the TLC-QLC scandal. Specs and performance are somewhat similar to the 'old' TLC SN550 before they did the bait and switch to QLC

    Asus Rampage 6 Encore Motherboard with the Intel 10980xe wont detect my onboard 2 tb western Digital m.2 drives

    What you mean is that your M.2 is 'B+M' keyed. And no you don't need any additional adapters. The Startech adapter I linked should work out of the box. The additional pins in the second 'slot' in the M.2 fingers are simply not used. More information on M.2 connector keying here...

    Asus Rampage 6 Encore Motherboard with the Intel 10980xe wont detect my onboard 2 tb western Digital m.2 drives

    Something like this should work: https://www.amazon.co.uk/StarTech-com-2-5in-SATA-Adapter-Converter/dp/B00ITJ7U20/

    Asus Rampage 6 Encore Motherboard with the Intel 10980xe wont detect my onboard 2 tb western Digital m.2 drives

    Like I said, if they're SATA mode drives, then the only slot they will work in is the top slot (closest to your CPU).

    Asus Rampage 6 Encore Motherboard with the Intel 10980xe wont detect my onboard 2 tb western Digital m.2 drives

    I think you just managed to answer your own question with your most recent post. You said SATA drives, indicating that at least one (possibly all) of your WD M.2 drives are SATA mode devices. Were you aware that only one of the M.2 slots on your motherboard supports SATA mode? I recommend you...

    ASUS GeForce RTX 3070 Noctua OC

    I understand the argument for using standardised fan mounts (notice the last sentence of my previous comment where I said I'd like standard fan firm factors), I'm not purposefully misrepresenting anything. I just don't see the point of paying extra for the brand, just having common form factors...

    ASUS GeForce RTX 3070 Noctua OC

    I understand your point, but I think I should also point out that Arctic, Corsair, Be Quiet etc... don't necessarily make their own fans, they're manufactured by a handful of OEMs like Delta, Sanyo Denki, Nidec, Sunon etc... The original assumptions that you're basing your comment on is that...

    ASUS GeForce RTX 3070 Noctua OC

    It's just two little bits of double sided tape... I don't think it's gonna affect servicability in any way, shape or form.

    Quick Look: Jelly Key Retro TV + Dragons of Eden Artisan Keycaps

    I guess the answer is the same as the reason people put fancy rims on their cars or superfluous unicorn barf RGB all over their PC, because they think it looks nice. As for these, I agree, the quality and designs are really nice, but you'd need a themed build to properly appreciate them. For me...

    Kingston XS2000 2 TB

    I would be interested to see if you can work some sort of thermal assessment into your future testing (e.g temperature graph of the controller and NAND packages under long duration workload like the full drive fill). IIRC, these fast SSDs wrapped into a USB stick form factors don't always pay...
