ASRock Fatal1ty X99X Killer, The Thriller With The Killer

Testing & Methodology

Before we began testing the ASRock Fatal1ty X99X Killer the test system was formatted, and Windows 8.1 x64 was installed. When the Windows installation was complete, we fully updated the OS, and installed the drivers necessary for our components. Auto-Updating and Windows Defender were then disabled and we installed all of our benchmarking software, performed a disk clean-up, cleared any prefetch and temp data, and ran the tests. Each test was ran 3 times  then we averaged the three runs and report that average here. If any one run was to far out of range we toss the errant score and run the test again.

Cooler Master Pi Case 40

The Raspberry Pi is now 8 years old and one of the most popular one-card computers out there. The main reasons are low price and the ability to expand the Pi in all sorts of ways making it the perfect mini-computer for all sorts of projects. In my case I’ve been looking into building both a PiHole-computer (filter ads etc) and several OctoPi-servers to use with my 3D-printers.
