  1. HP Reverb available for preorder on Amazon. Go git it! PoleCat Out
  2. Sliding inside corner brackets that tighten at whatever height along the vertical travel you like. Check the first photo. The longer piece of extrusion has the brackets slid loosely into place before attaching the shorter platform support piece. Photo 5 shows the inside corner brackets installed and tightened into place from below. Two of these inside corners are more then enough to support the weight of the Cougar but I am using 4 of them just to be extra sure.
  3. At almost 300USD for a pair for Monster Tech table mounts for HOTAS Cougar and Warthog Throttle and Stick I decided to make my own (with some variations in design) to save some money. Here is my project in a few pictures. My parts after fabrication and before assembly. The assembled platform from several views. And finally, attached for it's intended purpose......... Out
  4. Good stuff mate. Hope to see you hanging about.... Out
  5. I am very skeptical of this information. I use the Logitech gaming software (currently version 8.81.15). I have been using this software on all of my computers and updating it regularly for a long time. Three different machines all using Asus Z170-A. No issues, no BSOD's.You will find a lot of inaccurate information about hardware out there. Often it is driven by people who are misdiagnosing the issues they are experiencing. Happens all the time. You will not find an excellent piece of hardware out there that is not subject to this type of misinformation. Don't let it dissuade you. Take it fro
  6. Nice card Aleks. Enjoy it! Funny post Mav, looks like me when I was that age. Got to check with my Mom and ask her how the heck that pic of me got out there.... Out
  7. That system will be "the balls" with a few exceptions. Please read on......... To help alleviate your concerns I am currently using the Z170-A in three separate systems, Two gaming/business and one DAW (Digital Audio Workstation). I am modestly overclocking them and they are all rock solid stable. The CPU I am using in all of them is the 6700k but the i5 6600k that was suggested should be just fine as well. The boards are not wafer thin and they seem every bit as beefy as the previous generation Asus boards I was using (Z97-Pro). Keep the X-fi and use Daniel Ks drivers they work great under Wi
  8. This thread is now pinned and featured in our forums. I read the article this afternoon with Janet. Great stuff. I am in process of setting up a slider on the front page to show your interview off and link to it from our home page. I will try to finish it quickly if work allows. I recommend everyone read this article and learn about the man, the myth, the legend that is our very own "Maverick". The embodiment of his namesake and a killer elite! Well done buddy! Out
  9. Happy Birthday to one of my closest friends and our other fearless leader Manawar! Have a great birthday Ed! See you soon! ~Paul
  10. Ok here are the UEFI settings needed for the ASUS Z170-A and NVMe RAID0 for boot. I am using the latest release from Asus Which is UEFI/BIOS Version 1101. Once these settings were configured I used the WINDOWS 7 USB/DVD DOWNLOAD TOOL ([URL="https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/windows-usb-dvd-download-tool"]https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/windows-usb-dvd-download-tool[/URL]) to create a Windows 10 x64 bootable USB flash drive from my Windows 10 x64 ISO file. (Any UEFI boot disk should work). At this point I rebooted the machine and entered the UEFI/BIOS. In the boot section
  11. Here are the benchmarks I just took of my RAID0 NVMe boot partition. I am collecting the UEFI settings and will provide a step by step as to how I got this working very soon. Out
