Bought a 2TB hdd on amazon that came today. Did not realize however that I also needed to buy cables to hook it up. Apparently those came with the motherboard not sure where those cables went. Can anyone tell me what cables I need to buy to hook this up? Thanks :D. Jun 2, 2020 at 3:04 PM

        Sorry for the late reply lol. I have the Coolermaster Masterbox Q300L case, it has no hard drive bay, but the way mine is set up has room for a drive in the two areas I marked in an above comment. Bought a mounting bracket the other day and will be here later today (i think) so we will see.

      Already used up half the storage on my 500GB SSD... 3 of the games I downloaded I was just trying so can be deleted at a later date, but I have a feeling I will eventually need more storage. Fans come tomorrow according to newegg but will probably wait to install on a day im off.

        I’ve had that problem... I just got another 1TB SSD for $100 from Best Buy, and I keep large files on that SSD now.

        I recommend, if you'll need a lot more storage and don't feel like spending a lot on an SSD, to get a HDD as well. :)

      I'll see if the display port cable fixes my monitor issues in a few hours. Now I have a headset issue... I bought a cable splitter for headsets so I could plug into the green and pink in back of pc, and sound works but no mic still... wondering if I should just...

        I have the SteelSeries arctis 7. They work great. They are wireless for both audio and microphone. Just plug the receiver into a USB port and you're good to go.

        Thanks for the recommendation, I will go with their 10 footer since the 6.6fl is out of stock atm. I need atleast 6ft :p. Hopefully this fixes my issues because 40mins ago when I was still on my computer I wanted to put a fist through my desk I was getting super mad xD

        It could be that your HDMI cable is just somehow wonky. Replacing it with another HDMI cable could also work - there's nothing magical about displayport (apart from it being very expensive :P). :)

        Tried 2 different $10 cables and then bought a $20 cable thinking it would work. The display port cable came today, and so far it is working good. Although, the 20$ hdmi cable worked for about a week with no issue either so fingers crossed this time.

      The airflow in my room sucks so my computer runs a bit hotter than it should. The one stock fan that came with the case isn't enough so I am gonna have to buy 1 or 2 more fans and figure out how to install them.

        The placement looks fine to me, and you said you removed the stock cooler? did you mean the stock fans?

        yes, my wording was wrong. The case came with 1 stock fan installed in the rear. I took it out and put in one of the better fans I purchased.

        ah, and to answer your question about adding more fans in, you can download a temperature program to see how hot you PC is getting like 'Speccy' and if it's getting super hot under load then add more fans in, but if not then I wouldn't bother with it.

        I haven't watched Berserk yet because everyone has said how... bad it is (the manga is great they say, but the anime adaptation wasn't as good as it could have been). I just started a slice of life anime called Usagi Drop and its pretty good so far.

        people may be referring to the 2016 which I heard was really bad whereas I am watching the 1997 Berserk which is really good so far! and I've never heard of that I might give it a try :P

      Finished watching "I want to eat your pancreas" and I loved it. Definitely a tear jerker, but I fully recommend it.

      Final PC related question- I finally got my new computer all set up but when I use it the monitor occasionally goes black for like 8 seconds then goes back on. I know the monitor works fine because I have my xbox hooked up to it no issue. Do I need some other kind of display...

      Kaguya-sama is off to a great start for season 2. If you have not seen season 1 and are a fan of anime you should watch it... it is hilarious!

      Trying to find a new desk on Amazon since I am moving in 2 weeks. Needs to fit my 28 inch (iirc) monitor, my Xbox one, and new computer. Looking to spend less than $150 (not alot I know). Anyone have any suggestions? :P

        For the life of me, I can not find the model I have. I don't know if you were looking for an L-Shaped desk, but I got one and fell in love it with.

        There is a desk on Ikea that has a section that pulls out. It's called "Malm" and let me tell you, it was super fun to put together. Should be big enough to fit what you have, and I love it because it's durable and gives me a lot of space.

        Fruits Basket was my first anime (the original, not the recent remake). I was so happy that they decided to remake it, but that will never beat the feeling of seeing it for the first time with the old style <3

      Try Kami no Tou. It's based off a Webtoon and is really good. It's with the new season.

        It would probably work better if it'd appear even less often.
