Ugh, a random Chinese manufacturer that made my USB hub that I have on my front panel forgot to take off the film that protects metal parts during CNC milling, and it was ungrounded to my case this whole time. And I wondered why my PC would shock me and reboot once in a while. Even after taking the film off, the USB slots aren't grounded to the case, so I had to solder on a wire from one of the ports to the metal. Yes, they forgot to ground the screws. I almost killed my SSD for this shit.

I've just managed to enable freesync with the latest Mesa 19.0 and Linux 5.0-rc1, and Holy shit, great work, Mesa devs and AMD, this is amazing. Even on my 75Hz monitor.

Tbh the 7 at 1080p would be amazing with a freesync 244 hz screen
