That's a consumer's perspective - it ain't broke until it's broke - and there's nothing wrong with it.

I'm a software engineer and I.T. veteran. I don't like hoping problems don't manifest.

Corsair: custom front ports for Obsidian 250d?

I have another unusual request.

I have already removed the front audio ports, and I'd like to replace the front USB ports.

Gaming keyboards for coding?

I figure I'm probably going to get an emphatic "nope" but it's worth a shot.

Is there a gaming keyboard that's also really good for coding? Ideally with a relatively subdued appearance, and...

That's a very high precision cut that couldn't possibly be done by hand.

It looks like one heck of a deal actually. I'm excited to get my hands on it.

Assuming there isn't a bad batch floating around in some Amazon affiliate's warehouse.

Running an AX????i in silent mode?

I'm reading that the AXi disables the fan below 30% at one source, and below 40% at another source. Which is it, please?

And, would there be anything wrong with actually planning to run that way?...

AX series pricing, etc?

Why would Amazon be charging $21 more for the AX760i than for the 860i? Yes, I said that right, the higher wattage unit is $21 cheaper.

ML 120 PRO stiffness

Just received my pair of ML120 PRO fans. They're going on a radiator.

When I turn them by hand, they feel pretty stiff. Not locked up, but if it was a brake, I'd think I'd set the shoes too tight....

Corsair, PLEASE, make us a 200mm fan.

Given a 200mm hole in the case, such as in my Obsidian 250d, putting anything smaller than a 200mm fan in it just seems silly.

Yet, the best 200mm fan on the market is a 3-pin on a sleeve bearing....
