    Phanteks Announces Three New Products at CES 2020 - Eclipse P300A Case, D120 Distribution Plate, and Evolv Sound Mini Speakers

    Just bought a regular P300, it runs pretty cool @ stock anyway. It has a lot of little annoyances though. I don't like the non-standard front panel, would rather it go to the motherboard. I'd prefer it have some 2.5" inserts for the 3.5 bays instead of a behind the motherboard mount. The...

    Why does my Wireless NIC have a USB header?

    Sure, it's a gift though so it might not go in for a while.

    Why does my Wireless NIC have a USB header?

    Ah, since I won't be using that I can leave it unplugged I suppose.

    Why does my Wireless NIC have a USB header?

    https://www.asus.com/us/Networking/PCE-AC55BT-B1/overview/ I bought that^ Didn't notice it before I bought it, but it connects internally to a motherboard USB header for some reason.... Anyone know why? It has no manual just a guide that says plug all the things in.

    It was still pretty common to put 98 on that type of system, my first P4 system had 98 even. Though I'd bet a good chunk of those systems were upgraded to XP at some point.

    LACP vs 10GbE Questions

    Yes, assuming you don't hit a bottleneck somewhere else. There's some overhead in addition to not getting a larger maximum throughput, you won't get 1+1+ speeds for every link you add. But you'll get more provided you have separate sessions as in your example. I tested it on a Cisco switch...

    Are old manuals interesting? I dunno but these are the ones I have laying around. Wish I had the DUAL VSTA board, but I built that one for someone else.

    What happened to aftermarket GPU coolers?

    I had basically the same effect with the Arctic Mono Plus on my RX 480. 15 to 20c drop. Came with a bunch of RAM and VRM heatsinks too. Good deal. Though I ended up chopping off the VRM portion of the factory heatsink and kept that.
