    Windows XP in 2019

    Still people are using windows xp. Microsoft also has declared officially that they are not supporting it anymore. Buy still sites are providing the download links and update. Windows XP ISO 32-bit ISO.

  4. Hiya!

    mouse pad play area slippery

    Optical wont track very well on hard surface especially glossy/transparent.
  5. I currently have a Ryzen 5 1600 (overclocked to 4.1GHz), and I was just wondering if an RTX2070 would bottleneck my CPU when I play at 1080p

    Open Air case options

    So I have a Define R6 and its a great case but I really like the looks of open air and am thinking of going that direction when I switch to the new Ryzen chip (which I plan on as long as the rumours are close to reality). So far it seems like the front runner is the Thermaltake Core P5, I need enough room for a decent size rad as I want to do hardline cooling on it and want a 420 mm rad because I am gonna cool the cpu and gpu. The p3 is a little small. It will be sitting on a desk and not mounted to the wall. Are there any suggestions of others I should look at or is the Thermaltake the best bet? Budget isnt really relevant here, all though Im not spending 600 on a case.

    Experiences with non-techies

    1. My school spent much money on buying teachers Macbook Pros...The only applications teachers use are MS Office Products, and Chrome. Also a teacher calling an Acer Alpha 12 a Surface Pro. Me: Why don't you just buy some XPS laptops or something? IT: They aren't good enough. Me: dafuq 2. We have a max of 20 Windows laptops/desktops in the school. 10 Acer Alpha 12's, 10 Surface Pros, and a grand total of 2 desktops...both for librarian/actually knowledgable IT person use... The rest are Macs or standard-issue Acer R11 Chromebooks...*Scream*

    Hissing/Static When Playing Music

    This, or check the "default format" setting for both the "game" and "chat" settings for the headset in device properties on the Windows side. Most steelseries headsets maintain two channels, for audio and for communications respectively, and occasionally the driver just scrambles things on first connection, and you end up with what Windows calls "Telephone Quality" for one channel, while the other is perfectly fine.

    Windows XP disk partition errors

    I would suggest you to download a new setup may be you have setup file corrupted. Windows XP ISO Download.
  10. Next they will start posting things on your behalf! *we noticed you didn't update everyone on your visit to grandma in the hospital, nor let anyone know that she was in the hospital, let alone why.. so we went ahead and announced all the traumatic health struggles in your family and posted all the pictures from your phone that you weren't going to publicize.*
  11. Can someone tell me if there are VRM differences between these two motherboards? I believed I have heard buildzoid said Asus Rog strix x370 was a 6+2 power phase, would like to know what the x470 is. Someone in a x470 motherboard review said the motherboard didn't have a VRM sensor which is hard to believe because the x370 has one

    Show off your old and retro computer parts

    That is a very nice case, very nice. The CPU cooler leaves a bit to be desired but is probably fine if it's not overclocked, but the Core2 is so easy to overclock it's like...you just have to. Except probably not with that board, I see zero VRM cooling so pushing more power through the CPU could certainly cause long term damage to the board. Something like a Nvidia Nforce 780sli or 680sli based board would be the cream of the crop for OC'ing a Core2 series CPU A 980 would be seriously underutilized by that computer, a 550ti is probably fine. I guess the main issue would be the older driver support for modern games, but if you're only playing older titles it'll be a non issue, that CPU is a little skimpy these days anyway.

    Smoking Barrels - LTT's Unnofficial Gun Club!

    Hey if that's what works! I'm not here to tell anyone how to carry, and a little gun is leaps ahead of no gun. Given my druthers, I'd owb carry a big dumb "compact" 9 at all times if I could get away with it. All that being said, we just gotta remember that objectively, there are better and worse choices. In a perfect world we'd all have 10mm's open carried in a comfy drop legs, and 5.56's or 7.62's strapped to our backs.
  15. This is somewhat of a crude visualization, but it works: And here's images of the "S-fold" mechanism again: source: https://patentscope.wipo.int/search/en/detail.jsf?docId=US234731558&tab=DRAWINGS&maxRec=1000 If would also be pretty great if the detachable keyboard "base" had these qualities: compact & foldable less than 3.5lbs (1.6kg) 2x-3x battery life (56-80Wh) tactile keyboard as good as ones on the LG Grams, Surface Book 2, X1 Carbon, and high-end HP laptops discreet GPU (up to RTX 2060, GTX 1660ti, or Intel Xe) Thoughts?

    CPU usage

    If it's idling that high then you should clean install windows, not upgrade the CPU.

    CPU usage

    Yer good Unless you feel like you need an upgrade

    CPU usage

    My CPU (i3 6100) typically idles between 10% and 20% usage. Is that normal or higher than usual? Is it time for an upgrade?

    Rigid tubing inserts

    I just started to do my rigid bending and I got a rigid insert that matches the inner diameter of the tube but I feel like the tube slides in too easy and when I look at it there is I’d say about a 2mm gap in the insert. I’m using a semi hollow insert also. Would I get a snugger fit with the solid insert that I ordered from the same company?

    Smoking Barrels - LTT's Unnofficial Gun Club!

    My LCP is my main carry. In the winter I'll sometimes carry my CPX-2. But I'm usually carrying the LCP. Easier for me to conceal
  22. So, bit of an odd question and a long story, but here's the question: can the EK FC-1080ti block fit on a founders 1070ti? The routing looks like it covers the same parts, and the layouts of the card also look very similar as well, but their site is claiming it doesn't support it despite the similarities.

    Thoughts/opinions on this build list?

    For gaming only, NVMe is useless. Also, swapped out the PSU for a slightly better one.

    Man builds PC out of pasta

    What happens when the heat cooks the lasagna? Dinner time?
  25. @Broyojo it should fit in that case - that is actually one we have tested and other people have used as well. Can you email Matt@CableMod.com some photos of your installation? Pic for reference of it in the DB700: https://builds.gg/builds/orange-base-17068

    Make ANY PC Into a Hackintosh!

    IMHO as a long time Mac OS user the time and effort of building this not worth it if you’re going to use it for work, and in the future you may have many headaches updating it. If you build a pc put Linux or windows in it, if you need to work with Mac OS buy a Mac. If you want to experiment it’s fine.
