    Alan Wake Remastered Interview with d3t and Remedy Entertainment

    You aren't missing much. IMO overall I think the original on PC looks better than the remaster because the devs did a poor job of implementing the new lighting when they carried the game over to a newer engine. The game is also very buggy and poorly optimized. And I hope everyone who bought...

    Alan Wake Remastered Interview with d3t and Remedy Entertainment

    I tried the game out briefly but quickly refunded it. This is one of the worst remasters produced right along side the Silent Hill HD collection. I have an RTX 3090 and even at 4k with DLSS the game drops below 60 fps. During those drops my GPU usage is less than 40% This game runs worse than...

    Mounting a motherboard into wood?

    The velcro is pretty strong. I've held up speakers with velcro for many months with no issue. I will check for any audio noise issues. I am currently using an old Asus Xonar DG sound card.

    Mounting a motherboard into wood?

    Well I am using sticky velcro under the PCB feet for the time being. Any way to ground them while still have them on velcro. As long as I am not ripping the velcro and putting it back on constantly or rubbing it against stuff it shouldn't generate any static build up.

    Mounting a motherboard into wood?

    Never heard of that. Usually I hear the power supply handles it just fine.

    Mounting a motherboard into wood?

    The PSU grounds the motherboard from the 24 pin power. And it in turn is grounded from the 3 prong power cable that connects to the surge protector.

    Mounting a motherboard into wood?

    I might do something like that. For now I just bought some pcb feet then used some strong stick velcro on the bottom feet and stuck them to the case. I will check HDD temps and if they are bad then I will move it. Not a lot of room to work with. I got a surge protector which also allows for my...

    Mounting a motherboard into wood?

    Do you know what size I should get? I forget what is used for motherboards.

    Mounting a motherboard into wood?

    I am not sure I can fit the tray with everything else in the back. Also I can't raise the motherboard too high or the CPU heatsink won't have enough room. Just take a look at my previous pick to get an idea.

    Mounting a motherboard into wood?

    It's an old Antec Earthwatts 500watt 80 plus PSU.

    Mounting a motherboard into wood?

    I don't have a lot of space in the case. Here is a picture of the back. Once the monitor was added in there was not a lot of room for height.

    Mounting a motherboard into wood?

    I am finishing up my Bartop Arcade and I have all my parts but I want to know the best way to install my motherboard. I've seen people just use some bolts with lots of nuts to raise the motherboard up. Can I do this without drilling completely through the wooden bottom? The wood is 3/4 inch...
