So to answer my own question: Yes you can run an NVMe drive through a PCIe card on an AMD 990FX motherboard with only PCIe 2.0.

AND it'll boot Linux!

Does Microsoft even know how to program a good sound driver?

If I dare to have too many programs open at once the sound crackles, pops or just breaks and goes completely silent.

Yet on the same exact hardware running Linux, the drivers are as solid as a rock.

Come on Microsoft!

Can anyone recommend a good NVMe PCIe card that will run as many drives as possible, and as fast as possible on a motherboard using the 990FX chipset with PCIe 2.0?

For almost a decade now I have been powering my pedalboard with a trusty Dunlop DC Brick. However, as my pedalboard has grown and more power hungry pedals have come to the market, this power supply is no longer going to cut it.

It's time to find a new, more powerful power supply with at least 11 outputs.

For my money the 'American Nightmare' Cody Rhodes is one of the best professional wrestlers fighting today.

Every feud, every promo, every match he's involved in he makes them feel big. He makes his matches feel alive.

I feel like he is the modern day equivalent of Bret 'the Hitman' Hart because of how real he makes everything feel when he wrestles.

Pretty good episode of AEW Dynamite, but god damn what a great main event!
Cody Rhodes vs Jungle Boy was a belter of a match!

Since 2010 I've been using Pro Tools as my primary Digital Audio Workstation (or DAW for short), and as good as it has been to me I am finding myself becoming bored with it and wanting to switch to a different DAW.

This is the first in a multi-part journey to finding a new DAW. If you have any suggestions of DAWs I should try, please feel free to comment letting me know!

Yesterday I upgraded my phone from LineageOS 16.0 to LineageOS 17.1.
I think it's a real shame when phone companies lock the bootloader. My phone was stuck on Android 7 with the stock ROM, but because the bootloader was unlocked I was able to upgrade to Android 9 and now to Android 10 (using LineageOS 16.0 and 17.1 respectively).
I'll be honest, it's not perfect. There are some things which I have to work around, but even with that in mind, it allows me to continue to use a perfectly good phone.

I've got to say after using the latest version of Kdenlive for a fortnight now, I am very happy with it.
So far it has fixed all of the issues I was facing with the older versions.
Keep up the great work @kde

There's a new version of Ardour, the professional-grade digital audio workstation. Congratulations to everybody at Ardour for your fantastic version 6 from the KDE Community!

I'm considering changing which DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) I use. Currently I'm on Pro Tools, but I keep getting tempted to try others like Reaper or Ardour.
What do you guys think I should do? Do I stick with Pro Tools? Or do I try something else? and if so, what should I use?

Congratulations to Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins on their pregnancy. What a run Lynch has just had being the best wrestler (male or female) in the company. It looks like The Man is now going to be The Mum
