  3. This may be a dumb question, I've been trying to OC my Ryzen 5 1600. Even a voltage increase to 1.29 V for 3.7 GHz has bought my idle temps to the upper 40's Celsius. It's also brought my Cenibench temps to the upper 70s to 80 Celcius--Way too high for me to be comfortable. I'm using the Wraith Spire. Thank you all for even taking the time to read this.
  4. There's no way an 8th gen i3 is "beating the crap out of" your 7th gen i7. It's probably a faster storage.

    TL: NEW Intel... "Musclebooks"!?

    You have got to be joking y'all did this crap again! That's it I'm not subscribing to LTT anymore and I'm never buying your dang floatplane subscription. You used to be better than this now your just a giant shill for your own company. I really hope people see the crap your pulling and either drop floatplane or don't subscribe in the first place!

  7. This is really the best I could do while including a monitor. The CPU is quite good, and a little tuning makes it even better. The GPU is really the stand out part of this build, the Vega 64 is very fast and should do well at 1440p with the monitor I incuded. The monitor is very large, IPS, and Freesync, which makes it great value for only $230.

    RX 590 crashing my system?! pls help

    Update: I removed the card from my system and I was still having the -1% GPU usage issue, so I thought it might be something with the iGPU. After allocating it more dedicated RAM in the bios (2gb) I haven't had the -1% thing as of yet. The reason seems to be that the vega 11 graphics processor on the 2400g sucks 400 mb idle. Stupid me. I have reinstalled the RX 590 and I'll start up a few games and see if it crashes. Wish me luck!
  9. I have little experience with Ryzen but I’m partially against older processors. My friend has a cheaper laptop with an 8th Gen i3 and it beats the crap out of my laptop with a 7th Gen i7 in menial tasks. I don’t know how good last generation Ryzen processor but I’m very dispositioned against older processors.

  11. You could leave everything in the packaging until everything arrives. Then, a damp cloth or paper towel would be just fine to go over the packaging before you open everything up. This. If you are not careful, you will get charged $200 just for building fees, and end up with a power supply that takes a dump in a year. My suggestion is to use PCPartPicker, and start with a monitor you can live with. Go backwards from there - get a quality power supply and motherboard, then start worrying about the rest of the parts. I would highly recommend Ryzen for your price point, especially now with all of the parts hitting sale. AMD is launching a new CPU in June, and everyone is clearing old stock.

    Okay, since you're being stubborn, how about this: I've already done the mod in the past, I have a Dremel and Internet access, so nothing is past me.

    PowerPoint Video Thoughts - Techquickie

    Slides are kept short and concise for student to use their initiative to build upon and listen to the lecturer. More detail on a slide is not good. I'd expect 4-5 bullet points at most per slide, and around 30 slides for a 50 minute lecture. You should not study off slides, but off your notes. Bringing slides separately to lectures/classes whether on your laptop or printed out is essential. You should never copy off lecture slides in a lecture to take notes. When making your notes after the lecture , a combination of the slides / lecture notes and some diagrams of the text. Generally I'd expect students to know what is taught in lectures, that can be exclusive of what is on the slides for a full mark. It will be in the text, but will always be in the lecture. Powerpoints that are not lectures and are mainly images are slideshows.

    New Build. Stuttering problems

    Memory is fine as far as I am aware. Plugged into A2,B2 like suggested, system shows 32gb active. All other games seem to work perfectly fine.
  16. It's really quite difficult to mess a PC build up extremely badly. Certain parts are very sensitive, but others like CPU and RAM are extremely durable. I've once carried around a very old Pentium D for a day in my pocket, and it still worked the same after. Well here's what I'd recommend. This first build offers the best gaming performance now, with an i5 and Vega 64.

  17. If you need a monitor included in the $1000 budget, only option is Ryzen. Also had to swap in a GTX1660 Ti, but it performs about the same a RTX2060 anyway, just without the ray-tracing stuff. If Ryzen is the way to go, do you want to wait for Ryzen 3rd gen? Because you might get an even better deal when people start upgrading and getting rid of their Ryzen 1st/2nd gen CPUs PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: AMD - Ryzen 5 2600 3.4 GHz 6-Core Processor ($164.89 @ OutletPC) Motherboard: ASRock - B450 Pro4 ATX AM4 Motherboard ($69.89 @ OutletPC) Memory: Corsair - Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3000 Memory ($78.99 @ Newegg) Storage: Crucial - MX500 250 GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive ($49.95 @ Amazon) Storage: Western Digital - Caviar Blue 1 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($41.99 @ Newegg Business) Video Card: Gigabyte - GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6 GB WINDFORCE OC Video Card ($289.99 @ Amazon) Case: Phanteks - Eclipse P300 Tempered Glass (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case ($55.98 @ Newegg) Power Supply: Corsair - RMx (2018) 550 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($63.98 @ Newegg) Monitor: Asus - VG245H 24.0" 1920x1080 75 Hz Monitor ($189.19 @ Amazon) Total: $1004.85 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-04-24 21:31 EDT-0400

    New Build. Stuttering problems

    Unfortunately I do not have a monitor at the moment. I spent quite a lot on the build and figured it would be fine on the TV for a month or whatever till I got a monitor. Also don’t have another GPU because this is my first build. I am leaning towards it being a settings/user error issue. 1. I am using the un-activated Windows 10, some videos said this is fine and only prevented you from doing personalization (themes, background etc). But a note about “activate windows to personalize device” appears in both the display and sound settings. 2. This is essentially my first time using Windows. I used ‘95 and XP growing up. But have had a Mac for the past 15 years. So it might just be a settings issue I don’t understand. When starting the PC sometimes it is zoomed, other times everything is tiny. I can’t seems to get the settings to stay consistent. One time the game sound works perfectl’y (routed via hdmi to tv and then optical to the stereo) other times nothing, no matter which way I try it (PC-HDMI-TV-Optical-Stereo or PC-optical-stereo). Can’t seem to get the mic from the headset to work (dual cabled 1mic 1audio). Tried the front case ports, tried the mobo ports, tried BT Apple AirPods, etc. So, honestly I think it is probably on my end, but it’s incredibly frustrating and makes me not want to use this brand new system I paid a ton for and stressed my ass off to build...

    Whats better for VR frames, 1080ti or 2080?

    i use a 1080ti and it works very well with 1.5X supersampling on oculus rift in just about everything...and many games can even run at 2.0X with 90FPS...and i would assume the 2080 would do equally well...but the 1080ti has more VRAM and when you render at those extremely high resolutions is coming useful...also the HP reverb 4K 90hz headset is just around the corner and many racing fans like me will sell second hand rift and vive...which work amazing with project cars 2 for example. I would lean toward the cheaper card that you can get your hands on that has decent cooling and call it a day honestly.

    What phone should I get?

    So I just came back from a local grocery store with a mobile booth in it, I asked there last week if they do activations for Freedom & how much, they said yes it would be $10+tax for the sim card, no activation fee so $11.30 total, went there tonight & found out/was told the Grand Prime was locked to Virgin so I would have to call Virgin to get it unlocked & even if I get it unlocked that because it's a old phone it might not even work on Freedom, I told my sister in law when I came home & she said age shouldn't matter as long as the phone works it should work, he just said that to try to get me to upgrade because they don't make money unless they sell phones,which he offered me 1 of 2 phones on a plan with Freedom, either a Motorola Moto E5 Play or a Samsung Galaxy A8 for $50/month ($10 more than what I'm paying now, $20 more than the plan I was planning on getting) for the phone with a plan with unlimited minutes, texts & 5GB of data: https://shop.freedommobile.ca/devices/Samsung/Galaxy_A8?sku=887276251219&planSku=Freedom Big Gig %2B Talk 5GB https://shop.freedommobile.ca/devices/Motorola/Moto_E5_Play?sku=723755125940&planSku=Freedom LTE%2B3G 9.5GB Promo I told him I'd think about it (though I may just wait until I get paid the $250 I'm owed & get something else?)

    CTF has me stumped

    Hey guys, I'm doing one of those CTF events just for fun and I'm stuck on one of the problems or whatever you want to call them. The only hint given is attached below, but after doing all the work to make it up to this point I don't want to give up. Does anyone have any ideas/recommendations? The website had me do quite a bit running around before I made it to that page, so if you think you need the websites I went to previously to get there I'll give them to you. Thanks!

    Power supply fits but...

    So my moms bf custom built it around 2011-12 and two years ago he gave it too me to like use and play games it has an AMD Radeon HD 6990 and a AMD Radeon 6970 and the reason I called it a bottom thing was because I was rushing on something and I forgot my bad I just got into pc and I want to learn more and fix this one up the pc started boot looping around a year or so ago and I haven’t touched it since except take it apart and look at everything I figured it was the power supply because it was kinda old stuff but I got a RM850x power supply fully modular and what it had before was a TX850 the problem was my friend who is really good with computers told me to take certain things off and turn the pc off and see if it functions better so I did that each step and it would always bootloop so I just took it apart and waited on my moms bf to be off work so we could work on it if there’s more you wanna know tell me exactly what you want to know because I’m kinda bad at this stuff but I really enjoy pc more then anything I love working on stuff so I thought a pc was a smart choice
  26. If the iPhone is connected to an iCloud account then there's no way of getting it back, you format it by going into DFU mode and connecting it to Itunes, but if it has an iCloud account connected to it, it will ask for that iCloud account even after you format, which makes the phone completely useless You can try Jake's idea though
