  1. Past hour
  2. Well you are working because you have to watch the ads.
  3. Last I checked Microsoft Rewards you earn $9~ a month and it’s less intrusive.
  4. What kind of budget do you have, peripherals like monitors/keyboard/mouse needed?
  5. If you get the CPU in quickly after removing it and the MB from the box, and also quickly install thermal paste and your cooler, you'll be fine. If you're worried just blow off the dust in the case after you've completed the build. Make sure you get a good dust-resistant case and blow the thing out every month or two. Dust takes a long time to settle and there isn't enough time for dust to settle and damage ports like your PCIe and SATA by the time you've finished your complete build.
  6. specs are fine so far, but you need something else, say a cooler, mobo, PSU, case and maybe case fans to get it working. Also it's quite vague. I might swap the CPU to Ryzen 5 2600 instead to put money somewhere else, since VR headsets usually top at 90fps Build it yourself. Money spent on getting someone else to build it could have gone towards better hardware (say a bigger capacity SSD)

    One my friend wants to buy one ssd in 1 TB which to buy?

    Samsung's software is good (i have both a mx500 and a 860 evo myself), but i haven't seen or tried crucial's software for it, so i can't tell you on that part

    Case with a crazy number of internal 3.5 inch HDD bays

    I saw "Internal 3.5" Drive Bays" section shows "8 (2 included)". What does this mean?

    I was just thinking I could message the guys who were involved in the folding month as I have tutor forum names on the spreadsheet...

    "Audiophile" Gaming headphones?

    My favorite headphone for gaming right now is AKG K7XX with Dekoni Fenestrated Sheepskin pads. It's very open and the sound stage seems much wider than my Sennheiser 6XX headphones which I prefer for music. Positional audio seems to work better. I play a lot of Battlefield, and Dice's headphone surround mix works beautifully on them. Dekoni pads seem to help a bit, also super comfy. Also rather unexpensive at $200, and $80 for the pads.

    Need to wipe an iPhone 8 for legitimate reasons

    The best option is to see if the company can wipe it through their Remote Management software through Apple. Otherwise, there is no way to wipe the phone without triggering an iCloud lock (unless of course the phone has iCloud off or Find My iPhone off), which cannot be undone unless you are willing to potentially scam yourself on the Tor black market with some shady deals. @jake9000's method is also a good idea.

    Yep, for the Team's first year, it did really well. Lets hope this year the team can aim to do better. I still hope to some day see the Chimp Challenge come back (big annual F@H event), but to get all the tech forums back on board be a challenge in itself.

    "Audiophile" Gaming headphones?

    Good headphones, ARE good for games. I don't know who told you they aren't good for gaming... I use AKG Q701s for gaming.

    Need to wipe an iPhone 8 for legitimate reasons

    If this is company owned and you can produce the proof of purchase, Apple will unlock it. I've done this a few times with company devices. Otherwise, the only way Apple will process an activation lock issue is to help the original owner get signed in to their icloud account.
  15. mATX there's the Fractal 304 ATX there's the Phanteks Enthoo Pro M but really you could just check for yourself in PCPP

    2 in 1 needed, with stylus pen

    But it has the Wacom...keyboard? Tablet? Whatever, you know what I'm talking about... It also runs Windows, and you can probably get Linux on it. If I did a lot of drawing on the go, I'd probably get one myself.

    One my friend wants to buy one ssd in 1 TB which to buy?

    some people say that samsung is better from crucial because samsuing offers easier to clone to coming from hdd via Samsung Migration Tool is likely one of the reasons why they are preferred over Crucial SSDs.

    Best cooling for a Core 2 Quad CPU Q9550

    Yes, but it's even more of a pain than usual to install on 775. If you want period authenticity, serious badass points and the most painful cooler installation process ever, check this bad boy out: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIABW97E36952&ignorebbr=1&source=region&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleMKP-PC&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleMKP-PC-_-pla-Zalman+Direct-_-CPU+Cooling-_-9SIABW97E36952&gclid=Cj0KCQjwkoDmBRCcARIsAG3xzl_zlkzSIPm49YVh4q34SiuKMVj3y3IC5KXJm8E6Hz91y2TdWMOd3NsaAkU8EALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds

    O my, that be a high goal to aim for. SETI.Germany, USA, and China tend to be the three big hitters in the event. Though, I seen some of the smaller teams manage to knock one or two of them off the top three spots in some of the disciplines for the event. Was a major fan fair when OCN took 1st place in the GPU one. Was not easy, I was part of that team back then and the amount of folks we had to get together to do that was nuts (had one chap running around into ever GPU thread and game thread asking for help in the GPU part of the event).
