The PC Gaming Thread Phase II, The Masters of Gaming. No console peasants


So I did a CPU/mobo swap and now Windows won’t authenticate my Pro key, but won’t let me rollback to Home (says the license is for Home but reinstalling doesn’t give me that option via DL or USB). Guess I gotta find an iso or go key shopping again

Edit: Was able to activate the Home digital license tied to my MS account after reinstalling and skipping the key process. I guess I just thought the product key I was using was tied to that license. Oh well.


Call Microsoft and get it manually activated.


We started to finally get a US supplier of Factal designs Defied R6 parts.

Ordered some matching HDD drive sleds and their USB C upgrade panel


Do they also have Define R5 parts on the US store?


I found mine on Amazon


So I double check, they have a EU, German base store .
Amazon started to carry parts for the R6

What you need for the R5?


mainly the side panels. I would have bought them from the EU store, but that EU to USD conversion makes me die inside :frowning:


I did find this


left panel is there, I still need a right panel; which they don’t have.


Best I can do

All really shit prices too


Humble giving a free game…
