    Wire grill and silicon screws

    Three spaces... I found these on Ali. I don't do it because of aesthetics. Wire grills are less restrictive to airflow and are more silent.

    Wire grill and silicon screws

    Hi, I want to cut out standart 120mm grill in the back of my case and replace it with a wire grill. At the same time, I'd like to use silicon "screws". Are there any silicon screws that can hold a wire grid and a fan together? I found these from Noctua but I'd like to know your experience before...

    Gigabyte Z490 VISION G

    I understand now. They have Z490 Vision D with Thunderbolt, wifi and three M.2 slots, so my comment above is pointless.

    Gigabyte Z490 VISION G

    I wonder how Gigabyte desings their Vision mainboards. The B550 Vision D has AX wifi, two Titan Ridge (Thunderbolt) ports and two Gb LAN ports which makes it special between other B550 boards. OTOH this board has no wifi, no Thunderbolt (just support for add-on cards) and one 2.5Gb LAN which is...

    GIGABYTE B550 VISION D Motherboard Achieves Thunderbolt 3 Certification

    Then I got good news for you. Gigabyte has four new boards on their website: Elite V2, Elite AX V2, Pro V2 and Pro AX (replacement for Elite, Elite AX, Pro and Pro AC) and they all have headers for front USB-C (but only 5Gb/s). See here.

    Sabrent Rocket 1 TB M.2 NVMe SSD

    @robb213 IMO Sabrent is now expanding from US to EU (because I didn't know them a few months ago and review says it was founded in 1998). I have one question: will we see reviews of Kingston KC2500 and Crucial P5? Thanks for reply.

    Hot take: B550 is DOA for enthusiasts. Your thoughts?

    @ Especially when the price of the B550 mid end is about same as that of a x570 Asus TUF motherboard which is a good motherboard and has both PCIe 4.0 M.2, not 1 and the other being PCIe 3.0. Plus it has a good audio chip compared to most of the B550's from what I can tell. Only thing it lacks...

    Gigabyte B550 AORUS Pro

    The other tested board, ASUS ROG STRIX B550-F Gaming (WiFi), behaves the same as this Gigabyte: 1 x M.2_2 socket 3, with M key, type 2242/2260/2280/22110 storage devices support (SATA & PCIE 3.0 x 4 mode)* * Share bandwidth with PCIe3.0 x1_1, PCIe3.0 x1_2, PCIe3.0 x1_3 * When the M.2_2 Socket 3...

    Gigabyte B550 AORUS Pro

    Don't you know if the sibling board Aorus Pro B550 AC (i.e. with WiFi) has bundled external antenna or just those sticks? @ TheLostSwede: From their web: 1 x PCI Express x16 slot (PCIEX4), integrated in the Chipset: Supporting PCIe 3.0 x4 mode * The M2B_SB connector shares bandwidth with the...

    AMD B550 Chipset Motherboards Listed, Available from June 16

    Taichi is $300, it is $20 higher than Aorus Master with 3xPCIe 4.0 slots. And Taichi 570X is in my country for ~$345. I hope they will tweak prices a little.

    GIGABYTE Intros B550 VISION D Motherboard for Creators

    Why it is positioned above Aorus Master? Aorus has 16-phase VRM, 3xPCIe 4.0 M.2 slots, 6xSATA, 2.5GB LAN.

    GIGABYTE AMD B550 Motherboard Pricing Revealed

    @ sutyi I agree that Tomahawk X570 is priced very well but it has worse VRM, has only two M.2 slots and has worse debug options.

    GIGABYTE AMD B550 Motherboard Pricing Revealed

    Well, you don't buy chipset, you buy motherboard. This one is the only B550 with 3x M.2 PCIe 4.0 connected directly to CPU. And 802.11ax wifi. There's no such X570 board for this price.

    The perfect case for airflow + dvd player (5.25")

    IMO there are aesthetic reasons why manufacturers do not combine front mesh and front dust filter. Dust on the filter would be visible through the mesh.
