Well you need a pci-e 16x and the ability to split it.
I know Z97 boards can support bifurcation,gotta ask if this one does.
But you are planning to run a GPU too, right? So you'll need a motherboard with a PLX chip, and a PLX chip that supports x4x4 bifurcation at that. It's not impossible (the Z97X Gaming GT you posted above supports x8+x8 from its PLX at least), but that's the kind of use that is a complete crapshoot whether it will work or not, depending on the chip in question and how it's configured. Good luck, I suppose, though I don't quite see the utility. The perceived difference in game loading speeds from dual NVMe SSDs in RAID to quad SSDs will be pretty much zero anyhow. Sure, it'll benchmark faster, but is that worth the hassle? Given that RAID doesn't improve IOPS whatsoever (and often has a negative effect instead) I'd much rather go for two large drives than four smaller ones.

I needed a second charger for my laptop. Unfortunately, the official one costs $65 from Eluktronics' website.

I did some research and found that certain MSI laptops use chargers with the same voltage and connector size as my laptop, so I ended up getting this one for $49...




...and it works perfectly. The original charger was 150W, this one is 180W. I figure Delta is a reputable brand, so I shouldn't have any problems with it.

If you have a Clevo laptop with a mid-range dGPU, here's a charger you can get.

I can confirm that IOPS do improve with 4 NVME drives in RAID 0 vs 2 in RAID 0.

Ahh, brings back memories of when I really got into PC gaming. Back in November 2015, I got the one without the second DVI port for my HP DC5800 tower so I could play Fallout 4. Was a nice quiet card.

So just made an impulse buy (and therefore the decision to finally switch sides again - go AMD). Its the MSI Prestige X570 Creation. Got a really good deal on a open box from a German E-tailer.
The chipset cooler seems quite substantial and the fan can be replaced really easily. Hope it will serve me well. Now just waiting for the 3950x to release, so i can finally decide if i should get it or the 3900x and save some money. (Also noticed that the fan on the expander card is the same as the one on the chipset, so the replacement is already at hand...lol)

Btw: Am selling my current setup, if someone is interested (X99 Taichi + 5960x + 32gb Corsair Vengeance 3200 cl16). Am willing to send it EU wide.

Benchmark Scores bench...mark? i do leave mark on bench sometime, to remember which one is the most comfortable. :o
ah... sh!t here we go again ... it's the time of the year my phone carrier send me offer for Smartphone renewal ...

oh well, since a friend with a iDevice has some issues with Apple and wish to switch to Android .... i might also sell him the Pocophone F1 for cheap ....

let's see what's the latest fad for the genre ... mhhh
1. no notch, Pinhole camera or popup selfie cam (preferably not the later although the screen real estate would be better)
2. aluminum frame with glass front and back with a nano effect on the back as a bonus ....
3. 48mp on the rear cam (3D cam is a bonus ... )
4. flagship SOC and features midrange price
5. with some quirk... aka: uh? no micro SD slot? oh well, as long as it's more than 64gb ... it should be fine
6. brand fidelity? oh well ... that "Trump" it all ... (pun intended)

so, in Honor of my Huawei Mediapad M5 (pun intended) which will be the heavy app and media(pad) oriented device with her 64gb+256gb (but a notch under SOC) i took...

a Honor View 20 in black 6gb/128gb
IMG_20191030_121239.jpgIMG_20191030_121249.jpg
now i am 100% sure that the Mediapad camera is just for show ... urgh ...

but using a torchlight ... can manage to catch the famous Aurora nano effect on the back (when not in the silicone hull bundled with )
IMG_20191030_122629.jpgIMG_20191030_122642.jpgIMG_20191030_122600.jpg

the majority of the review i saw about are in the 4.5/5 rating ... and i know why ... now

impressive specs for a price of around 400chf
  • 4000mAh (typical) battery
  • Super Charge: 55% in 30 mins (and my Aukey QC3.0 charger works just fine with it ... along the "El Cheapo" 3eur cable )
  • Kirin 980 (well it's on par with the Snap845 that the F1 had ... no complaint, actually it's deemed to be 37% faster and 32% more power efficient... NO COMPLAINT!)
  • 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM


Connectivity
Wi-Fi 2.4G: 802.11 b/g/n,MIMO + TAS
5G: 802.11 a/n/ac
Bluetooth BT5.0
USB3.1 GEN 1(Note:The standard data cable inbox is USB2.0)that's the icing on the cake! it's actually USB 3.1 Gen 1 compatible ... while most other are 2.0 (the cable is not an issue )
Dual-frequency GPS
Galileo (E1 + E5a dual band)
QZSS (L1 + L5 dual band)
NFC (ah! i got what was lacking in the F1, back... )

Shiny thing syndrome struck again yesterday when I got my hands on a GoPro Hero 5 Black. Used, one careful owner with accessories and kit bag.
I'd done a lot of research into GoPros and knew that I wanted 4k and the app connectivity. It's in mint condition and I paid a fair price, so I'm looking forward to some bike riding adventures in 4k, once I bite the bullet and buy a quality 64Gb SD card.
In fact, I'd bought a copycat action cam in the UK last year, but really the output was dire. This thing, on the other hand, is more sophisticated than I could ever have imagined and is a marvel of engineering.

Shiny thing syndrome struck again yesterday when I got my hands on a GoPro Hero 5 Black. Used, one careful owner with accessories and kit bag.
I'd done a lot of research into GoPros and knew that I wanted 4k and the app connectivity. It's in mint condition and I paid a fair price, so I'm looking forward to some bike riding adventures in 4k, once I bite the bullet and buy a quality 64Gb SD card.
In fact, I'd bought a copycat action cam in the UK last year, but really the output was dire. This thing, on the other hand, is more sophisticated than I could ever have imagined and is a marvel of engineering.

ah ... i have a Hero 7 White, tho common sense tell me i should have opted for a Hero 5 Black .. :D
well i still have my AEE S71T+ aside, for now, it seems since i don't want 4K, furthermore 4K15, the H7W will do fine

good catch :)

ahahahaha i noticed another thing i love on the View 20 ... it has what my previous previous previous phone had (a Honor 8 which is still alive and kicking in the hand of one of my colleague ) ... A IR BLASTER! meaning it can act like a universal remote :D

Well another week another purchase. I was looking at 2TB NVME drives (I want to upgrade my boot from 512GB). I even created a post about the Intel 660P series. I wanted to make sure that it was something that I would not regret. I looked at the 2TB 660P for $279.99 but (I am pretty sure I put it in the same 660P thread) the Adata SX8200 Pro 2TB (So new there are no reviews) was $295. I recently made some good profit on a PC sale so this will be my reward to myself. It should be arriving on Friday

The Adata SX8200 Pro will be running circles around the 660p. Good choice. Its one of the fastest PCi-e 3.0 NVme drives!

i bought a 256gb Evo Plus for my tablet ... quite good cards indeed

for the H7W i have a Sandisk Extreme (32gb for now ) UHS Class 3 and video class 30 (V30) which is a tad under the Evo Plus: R160mb/s/W60mb/s opposed to R100mb/s/W90mb/s for the Samsung although since the H7W do 1440p at max .... i doubt 60mb/s write would be a bottleneck

mhhh what would be my next move .... new mobo cpu ram and gpu ... or wait will december since i already did quite a lot of compulsive buying lately ... :laugh:

The 256Gb would cost me an arm and a leg down here, unfortunately.

i got lucky :oops: 16chf (about the same in usd) instead of 74chf (i can't still figure out how it got lowered to that price ... if not for a internal listing error )
although even 74chf would be cheap... an equivalent from any other brands are more like around 90-95chf like the Sandisk High Endurance model
