I put my x4 RAM in ASUS H110M-R, it works. I think it would work in your MB, too.

Re: Is it a UDIMM 1Rx8/2Rx8/1Rx16 memory module?

Look at the picture of your RAM. The label says 16G X16. I believe this RAM is 1Rx16. Should work in your MB. My 4GB RAM has 4GX4 on the label. The product specifications say nothing about organization. Seems to me ADATA produces RAM with different organization, same product code. They have been tel...

Re: How to lower brightness in Linux to eliminate whining?

It seems you WANT to adjust the backlight. You can't. The monitor does not have the hardware for that. The directory sys/class/backlight is empty because Linux has found nothing it could put in there. Even if you could, you would get the same whine.

Re: Most Silent HDD I can buy in 2019, even small ones

A HDD for intensive writes. Suspending in springs or rubber strips helps. I use a quite old WDC WD3200AAKS and don't hear it when idle. Almost any HDD would do (not older than this), but the first one you try might be noisy. Two HDDs is a thing to avoid. Two can be much louder than one. Or SSD, if y...

Re: TVHeadend build - PSU fan as air mover for CPU

I'm hoping they line up, at least a little bit I achieved perfect line up by putting a 9cm fan in the right place in the PSU (instead of the 12cm fan). I use i3 and IGP (to keep power draw low). 35W CPUs are bad if they cost more. A 95W CPU will spend most of it's life drawing less than 35W; some w...

Re: TVHeadend build - PSU fan as air mover for CPU

Yes to both questions. The downside - if you put in much effort eliminating all the gaps, it's hard to change components afterwards.
Don't be so sure about 35W.

Re: Fan ticking?

PWM fans tend to tick (except at 100%). Shit fans? Yes. Perhaps PWM is the shit... Those 5 mins I don't understand either.

The controller is in the fan. All the ticking is in the fan.

This implies hitting 4 miles away would be somehow a better connection, without current inside the Earth from there to here.

Millimeters separation isolates about 1000V. Can your PSU survive 1000V? I don't think so.

Waves and spikes are not synonyms.
"That created AC" is not spikes. More like a square wave. The pulses have certain duration.

So no more radio waves. Good. PFC circuit converts the mains voltage to some 380V DC. Typical half-bridge converter converts this voltage to plus minus 190V pulses. You call them spikes? You call this dirty? I don't. This is intentional. Any conditioning done on a power cord is completely undone. Ar...
