Works great! Minor issue where the power LED stays on even when the machine is off but it's not a big deal.

Macbook pro 2013
Intel i7 CPU
16gb ram
256gb SSD
Retina Display ( Beautiful ).
Nice old style apple keyboard. ( the main reason I purchased this old design )

It's less expensive than a Mac mini and I can't stand for Win-10.
MacOS utilizes and manages the computer hardware resources very good.
SSD replacements are inexpensive and easy to replace.

Lots of FREE apps from Apple store
MS Office
iWork suite
photo editors
iMovie
Garage band
Microsoft remote desktop
etc....

But why not another iPad? It's supposed to be great for everything!

That's it. Going on the ol' ignore list. I'm not here to read ads. :blah:

Anyway I finally ordered a Ryzen 9 3900x today. Twice the cores/threads of my current Ivy-E 4930K, plus a very healthy IPC boost. I was going to wait for the Ice Lake desktop chips to land before making a decision but it's looking more and more like that won't happen until 2021. Man, that 10nm stuff is really giving Intel some trouble eh?

Yes, My trusty iPad is my everyday go to computer. But if I need to do anything else I can use my MacBook Pro and I can triple boot MacOS(UNIX)/Windows/Linux in my MacBook Pro. You can’t do that legally on a PC.

PCs already run the better OS by default so no need to triple boot.

Just got a LaCie 2big hard drive enclosure, it has FireWire (1x 400 and 2x 800, theorically I could use this enclosure as a transfer bridge for my iMac G3, since it has FW400, so I don't have to deal with abysmal USB 1.1 :dead:), USB 2.0 and eSata (I do not have any computers with eSata, duh!)

Of course, it came without drives (well that was expected, even empty this thing is by no means light! 3kg when empty!), and to make the matters worse : it has special screws to hold the drives in the trays :dead:², I tried with multiple screws, but they wouldn't fit or would straight up prevent the tray from sliding in. So I had to steal the screws from my APM USB3 enclosure :dead:³

Paid 15 euros for it, it came with the PSU, but without the data cables (could not find FireWire cables in my stash o'junk)... I only had two 500GB spinning rusts on hand so 1TB RAID it is for now.

I can't attach a pic as I'm currently on mobile.

It's an unholy union of the worst aspects of both.

9$ US out the door.


I found some unofficial XP drivers, anyone have any experience running this card on XP?

Creative has it on their site.

Also that Silverstone looks more like ATX...

Can you show me where, everything I found is Vista + only and I also found a bunch of threads lamenting how creative wasnt supporting this on XP, but I'd love to find some official drivers.

By looking at number of rear brackets, I can't believe it's "only" a mini ITX...

Thanks for the attempted help but that package doesn't support the X-Fi Titanium HD according to the notes:

Bought 3 new 80mm case fans for my main desktop so that the airflow circulates and that the CPU and GPU won't get a lot of strain. Temperatures are nominal for both of them, so I'll start playing a game to see if the temperatures rise or not.

SpeedFan current chart
GPU: 47C
Temp1 (CPU): 43C
HD0 (SSD 480GB): 32C
HD1 (SSHD 1TB): 27C
HD2 (HDD 1TB): 27C

The SSHD and HDD have a fan blowing towards them (cool air going in), the bottom of the case has air blowing in cool, the side of the case has cool air blowing through, and the rear of the case has 2 fans that are blowing out the warm/hot air.
