Will post cleaned up pics once Windows Update will allow me to take the thing off the workbench into decent lighting…lol
Is there a relatively inexpensive USB 3.1 card with the 20 pin header? That’s what I need it most for (the case only has 3.0 ports on the front, mobo has no 20 pin header)
And I would love to do thunderbolt but I don’t currently own anything thunderbolt, so unless a TB card is pretty cheap I will probably wait on that. This motherboard has 5 PCIe slots so I can always toss in another card later, especially since I will probably condense things down to one good GPU down the road and free up a PCIe slot.
Yeah, the ugly cord is my test bench cord, I got a whole box of those from the same recycle pile these machines came out of so I use them in places where I give zero craps about aesthetic. The heatsinks…I could replace them but temps are fine so I’d sooner spend money on the GPU or something more tangible lol but yeah it bothers me too
