  1. What I did was dust off my old disc reader/writer/player/whatever you wanna call it and install windows 7 from that, this makes it unnecessary to 'mod' the w7 installation, this will be rather problematic on a laptop though. Also yes w7 works perfectly fine on newer hardware, currently running 7700K which is "not compatible with windows 7" - Which it is They do however 'lock' your windows update so you can't update. You can bypass this by just installing a small program called wufuc, which will make you able to update w7 again.
  2. My friend had a similar issue, PSU issue too, he bought a new since the old one he had was of questionable quality anyway.
  3. Find whatever kind of switch you like the most and just buy whatever fits your budget, the switches are the same it's only the casing and lighting that's different in that price range
  4. Microsoft doesn't want you to use anything newer than gen 6 without forcing you to be on windows 10, a pain in the ass when it makes no difference for them, other than the money they lose on tracking and advertising. What I did was I used a good old sata cd/dvd drive and an old 2009 installation cd I have laying around. This is the easy way to do it on a desktop, but you probably won't be able to do it like this, since there's probably no external sata connector. Instead what you have to do is download the preload USB drivers from ASUS' website, and install/insert the drivers into the Windows 7 installation file, then rufus it to the USB stick. BTW when you are on Windows 7, you will notice that they won't let you update because 'the hardware is not supported' (THE UPDATES THEY RELEASE FOR WINDOWS 10 AND 7 ARE IDENTICAL!!!). So you have to do some good ol' digging for a software called wufuc, which basically unblocks the updates and lets you update. Microsoft just really want to be hated, it feels (to me) like they do and push the users into all sorts of bullshit for no particular reason, I would understand why if there was a major hardware change between the new generations and the old, or if the kernel was completely rewritten, but at its core, 7 and 10 is the same, but with updated slower 'layers' of software and drivers on top.
  5. People who go all out tend to use Bitspower fittings, they come at a hefty price tag though. They look amazing, I think they do at least. Singularity Computers sell unique stuff too, very premium stuff.
  6. I've got the 710+ and I love it, it's just getting a bit outdated: Only static white led options, though I like it clean so not a negative thing for me, and an unstylish orange edge around the macro-keys), I have no issues at all with it, though some people complain about not being able to find replacement keys, because they break the ones shipped on it. Had it for 4 years now and the only thing I have really done with it is that I have removed the o-ring on the QWERASD-buttons. When it finally decides to die on me or I have used up some of the buttons, I will probably get Cherry browns again, I love browns.
  7. Logitech G710+ as his everyday keyboard, but I would think he uses many different, considering he has to review them.
  8. It might not help a whole lot, but it would help a bit, I did something a little bit like it back when I had 770 SLI, it helped a little bit, what about a static optimized fan right next to the cards? it won't look good, but help with moving away the hot air
  9. A cheaper alternative (if you have the tools and skills) would maybe be to mod the case have more airflow in the front and an extra fan mount in the top, put the radiator up top and some good 140mm fans in the front to really move some air.
  10. FINALLY got myself a new pair of good headphones for use on the go. Figured I'd start of with them, since I the ones I had broke (asshat accidentally hit them and they fell off the table and broke, usable if I buy a 2k glue). I decided on the Sennheiser PXC550's (between them and the Sony MDR1000), since they were about 100$ off in my country, and they were within what I wanted to spend on bluetooth headphones, and I gotta say, they are really nice, they're my first 'quality'/audiophile (not really audiophile, but I am gonna call them that). Everything about them so far just seems like it's top quality, even the packaging. 

    About sound, out of the box (no burn in) they are quite boring to listen to (without effects selected), but with the right setup, they're good, when ANC is enabled it would seem like they turn a bit more bassy, something you can adjust in the Captune app. Personally I listen to them without changing anything in the equalizer, but did fiddle with the fx's, basically the movie preset, but with less bass.

    So far positives:
    Everything so far has been running smoothly, no hiccups, turn on and are ready to go fast too.
    Am well satisfied with the sound quality for closed-back BT headphones

    So far negatives:
    When wearing them for a longer period, -because of the ANC, the earpads seem to be kinda tight (to the point where they're nearly air-proof), so I can actually feel the pressure pressing in my eardrums, kinda like you're diving. So far I've just been readjusting them every now and then to balance out the pressure, anybody reckon poking a tiny hole in the earpads would be enough to balance out the pressure, or does it have to be like that for the ANC to actually do anything effectively.
    Because of the touch panel on the side, you easily leave fingerprint visible for everyone to look at.
    Would've like a manual power button instead of the 'automatic' when you flip the right cup.

    Next on the list on my path into the audiophile world is: 
    Stationary headphones (where I'm considering the HD599's)
    Entrance Dac/Amp

    Well it's gonna be while before that's gonna happen, since I've got some paint jobs to pay for soon :) 

    Thank you that one guy who actually took your time to read my bullcrap, :) much appreciated ;) 

  11. No I mean't that the speakers themselves wouldn't really be worth it to invest money on, well that's my personal opinion, It'd* be alright if he can find some cheap optical to analog* adapter, but I wouldn't bet on it.
  12. I still wouldn't since the price of an adapter/receiver isn't gonna be worth it for the sound quality you're gonna end up with. If you want to you can do it of course,
  13. If that's the case I'd use the in-built TV speakers, since I'm pretty damn positive it's gonna give you better sound than those and it wouldn't be worth it to buy any adapters or receivers if you don't get any better speakers with it.
  14. Then a cheap receiver/adapter is the only solution, but what the f are the speakers you're using since it's only got a jack connector?
