  1. Past hour
  2. Some one earlier said it was all basically BS (like most media articles, they are just jumping on the hype train for clicks), I think the discussion quickly moved on to the research status of health and RF technology.
  3. All the fixes I can think off will 'void the warranty'. If you are truly worried and think something is not okay, RMA it.
  4. I would agree with OP, but not in the scale of 2018. Radeon VIIs seem to do well, you can find a lot of videos about it. I'm less experienced with nvidia, but I guess they can still mine the same coins even more efficiently with Turing now. You can still mine a lot of coins with GPUs. Ethereum is still around and Cuckatoo31 and Grin/Mimblewimble (I love this name) has made its way to the profitable spot also. Ethereum should hit 2.0 soon(ish) and even though it is going to switch to PoS, there will be an in between phase with PoW (GPU mining) and PoS ("mining without compute power" in short). Ethereum 2.0 could drive the price super high, thus making mining super profitable thus causing a small shortage, but because PoS is not using compute power anymore, the shortage will quickly fade away as PoS takes its place and PoW is phased out. Disclaimer: this is not investment advice.
  5. I am having network issues while gaming. I play fortnite, yes I know it’s a bad game, but, I play around 30-60 ping which very reasonable for fortnite but sometimes while playing it feels laggier than my ping shows. For example while playing I may have 30 ping and sometimes it feels super delayed but also sometimes it feels very snappy and minimal delay. So basically I am trying to fix the issue where it feels more delayed than it should be. I do get packet loss sometimes( I also need help with this if anyone could help) but the issue mainly occurs while I get 0% packet loss. Any help is greatly appreciated as I have no clue what to do to fix it. details my pc is only 6 months old. (I7 8700, gtx 1660 ti, 32 GB RAM 3000mhz, I play with a cat8 Ethernet cable (supposedly, that’s what it said when bought it from amazon) my download speed is 20mb/s and upload is 2mb/s, I know my Internet isn’t very fast but if this was the cause of the delay then my ping would show higher than 30-60ms.
  6. This device doesn’t look like it does 5.1 splitting. At least not with the connectors shown. It wants pre-split 5.1 input. As far as 5.1 input it looks Pretty straight forward. RCA is either 2 pin or one pin. In this case it looks like one pin. 5.1 is actually 6 channel, but one isn’t amplified so it’s 0.1 instead of 1. You’ve got the 6 channels sitting there labeled. im assuming this is the back of the second hand 5.1 device. The outputs on the TV are what matter. If the TV does 5.1 splitting you’re golden. If it DOESNT, and only has 2 channel out, more inputs will need to be found on this device, or a different device will need to be found. What needs to be seen is what the outputs on the TV are. They can vary wildly. Only half the required information is here.
  7. The older tn panels msi used are very very good for some reason way better then even the better ips panels in gaming notebooks sure they dont have the best viewing angles but in terms of colors etc they look amazing saw a few of them in a local store especially red looks alot more vibrant then to the ips models next to it ( asus strix 2 laptop was next to it )
  8. maybe if its a tablet but then its still aint gonna be too great
  9. They may not check every switch, either when the switch is manufactured, or when the keyboard is actually being built. Shit happens.
  10. I'm In the works of building a new system and considering the new Nvidia cards are rumored to be coming soon I don't want to buy a 2080 now if it will drop in price shortly (or potentially the new lineup) and just hold on to my 2060? I figured this would be a good place to ask since I don't know if Nvidia has a somewhat predictable rollout/price drop as I haven't been paying attention to this industry for long. For those that may be interested I'm building a r5 3600, msi b450m mortar max, and still trying to figure out what I want to do for ram and open to recommendations since the QVL and a few ram manufacturers have conflicting compatibility(corsair mainly). Thanks in advance for the help
  11. It's not a fantasy build... It's my PC.
  12. Hello everyone, today, i am faced in front of a very difficult problem. EDIT 1 PC SPECS : Motherboard: ASUS Prime Z-390A Processor : Intel I5 9600K @3.70GHz RAM: HyperX 2x 8 gigs DDR4 @3200 MHZ Current GPU : MSI GTX 970 OC Bootdrive : Kingston SSD 250 gigs Running games on similar spec'd SSD. You see, i've received a new case recently and all i've done today is to transfer all of my current components to the new case. But, with a twist, i've also done a CMOS battery clear to reset my BIOS due to not being able to ever access it for some reason The behavior was as follows : - Pressing power button turns on the PC as usual, but no peripherals or monitor would respond until windows boots up. - Trying to access the bios by going through windows troubleshooting stays in a blackscreen until the PC is resetted only to behavior the same way as described above. - Trying to use a bootable USB drive does the same behavior. This behavior was fixed after a CMOS battery clear. Do know, however, that i changed TWO settings in the bios before booting : I have changed my HyperX DDR4 memory's clock to it's advertised 3200MHz I have changed my bios's delay to 5 seconds. HOWEVER after a couple of minutes running google chrome and watching a random video, my PC completly froze and not responded until a reset. After this random freeze happened, the behavior mentionned above re-surfaced. i have decided to ignore this behavior until i have noticed multiple freezes AND game crashes while playing World Of Warships with my friend and decided to REDO a CMOS battery clear. And this is where i am stuck right now, my PC would never boot up after this clear and here's the current behavior : Pressing the power button turns on the PC, all fans spinning, all hard drives spinning, GPU fans spinning, motherboard flashes OK. HOWEVER i do not have any peripherals NOR monitor turning on. Having a windows bootable drive does not wake up the system. Trying to reset the PC with a short circuit to the CLRTC jumpers DOES make the motherboard restart multiples times but always ending up in the same result. So right now i am at an impasse. Could anyone competent please help me and guide me through making this computer start up again? I am extremely desperate.
  13. Okay then, it's a fantasy build. Which isn't real. Another word for not real is.... fake.
  14. Ik it is the spring because when I slowly tap down, you hear the metal creaking like you would if you press down on a spring mattress. Also, it is only occurring on the A key and nothing else. Is the spring perhaps not straight so it is bending which is causing it to rub against the side of the switch holder?
  15. A pcpartpicker list helps a ton
  16. What on earth is this thread about?! I live in Switzerland. Our government has not blocked the implementation of 5g or even seriously discussed doing so. Since the financial times article is behind a paywall, I can't even access it to get a better look at wtf wrote it, and who he thinks he's quoting, but it's simply nonsense. (Among other things, the BAFU just presents reports. It can't make anyone place a moratorium on anything. And while 2-3 of our 26 cantons have placed moratoriums on 5g development, they most definitely do not make federal policy!) I wish I could give you guys a link to disprove the claims, but since no one here has heard anything about any such initiative, there's nothing there. All I can just say that I'm Swiss, I follow the news, and I even asked my daughter and her boyfriend, both Masters students at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, to please check. The claims made in the article quoted are false.
  17. 10/10 on the FakeScale.
  18. The 9900K doesn't come with a stock cooler so an aftermarket one is needed.
  19. It's still nothing, and no reason exists to be concerned about it.
  20. CPU: Ryzen Threadripper 3970X Motherboard: Asus rog strix TRX40-E RAM: 8x16GB Corsair Vengeance RBG pro ddr4 3200MHz GPU: pny quadro RTX 6000 Case: Deepcool New Ark 90 Midi tower Hard Drive 1: 10 TB HDD Seagate Hard drive 2: 250 GB SSD Hard Drive 3: 3TB SSD Power Supply: Corsair AX 1000
  21. I have a regular problems with my home WiFi. My first thoughts are that the problem lies with the Router. To begin with my Broadband is fine for UK standards, its Plusnet fire Optic, 40Mbps Down and 30Mbps Up. But my problem is that it sometimes loses connection, the actual signal icon still appears in my task bar as connected but with no internet, it will stop working for less than a minute before it starts again, it will do this between every 30 minutes to every 5 minutes. There are often 4-5 people connected don multiple devices. I use the router that was provided with my Broadband, Will replacing this fix the problem? Cheers
  22. For the 9900K, it doesn't come with a stock cooler so you will need an aftermarket one. The 3700x comes with the Wraith Prism and the Prism will handle the CPU on base clocks and some moderate overclocking. I'd put the money for the cooler into something else.
  23. I looked on the Getac company site. There are newer versions that still comply with those requirements and then some, including radiation and extreme heat. Dell and CAT also have rugged tablets that comply with those standards. Sometimes, local law enforcement agencies will also auction devices like these off. Linux is the umbrella program to describe dozens of individual programs. It depends on which one you want to run. I personally enjoy running Mint and SailfishOS, but whichever one you choose is based on your use case. I do a lot in gaming, privacy regulation, and I'm associated with federal law enforcement, so I use distros that are fully supported with regular updates and provide a high amount of customization and security.
