    Should I be buying a LSI card off eBay ?

    Very few cards are getting shipped locally or from UK/US..
    Most of them are being shipped from China or Hong Kong. I wonder why is that ?

    it's because most of them are fakes - but they work like the real ones - just never paid licensing fees i guess.

    That said, it's where i get most of mine.

    RIP.

    After the usual sobbing/burial rituals, what are the plans ?
    HP Gen8, Gen10+, or something else ?

    Dayum.

    My N40L has recently been giving me increased grief as well (although the modded bios with the extra HDD has always been a bit unstable, it became acutely worse, I assume its a power issue).

    Replacing mine with an itx am4 build.
