  1. Can the cord hangers be used on the underside of a desk or will that change in orientation cause them to pop open?
  2. Are there any good tutorials out there on how to set up and use a TS451 (or similar NAS). Mine simply sits on my desk and I'm sure I'm not getting the most out of it simply because I don't have a clue. Everything I've searched on thus far is either way off topic or not a similar enough model for me to gain anything out of it. Things I'd like to learn about: 1) Setting it up in RAID0, and then later RAID5 as I get HDD's 2) Making it available for use throughout my home (easiest way of accessing it via my media center, via my wife's laptop...etc) 3) A General tutorial - I was expecting to be able to treat it as just another drive through my PC, but so far I've been having to go through the web interface for everything....??
  3. I just had a realization the other day that I no longer used vendor drivers when I re-installed windows 10. Not 100% but the only drivers I had to install were Soundblasfer for my sound card, AmBx for my gaming lights, - and even Nvidias driver somehow was getting installed when I would re-install the OS. I even run a RAID0 for my boot drive and never had to install Intel IRST drivers at installation time. just curious if other people noticed the same?
  4. hopefully this helps - a sata power connector is the power cable that would go from your PSU to your HDD or SSD power port. See 9:49 for a quick shot as to what he's plugging in
  5. Which Noctua fans do you preferr?
  6. Straight up ease of use. Gaming == no care at all about losing data.
  7. As impulsive as I can be I've now come to find myself with 3 m.2 SSD's - one 960 EVO and two 850 EVO's (all 500GB). My board can only support 2 m.2 slots. I'd like to RAID0 the 850's (as it's just for gaming anyways). I'm having trouble searching for a good reliable add-in card for this. Any suggestions please?
  8. When you build a new system do you automatically buy aftermarket fans? What for? (case cooling or CPU cooling?) Which fans are your "go-to" ones and why?
  9. If you've ever wanted any kind of insight into what it means to have a mental disease then watch A Beautiful Mind. I'm going to spoil the ending here so watch and come back if you want...
  10. This is, in part, my question. If you take something like a 2600K which has a base of 3.8 and OC it to 4.5. I'm wondering how much of an improvement on load times would you see. Here we are talking about roughly a 20% improvement on clock speeds alone. So when we throw in 3930 , 4790 ...etc and the increases in instructions per clock they have I wonder the impact. I think LTT did a video a couple years ago that even RAMDisk had almost 0 impact as well on load times.
  11. Does anyone have any recent sources which would illustrate the impact of different SSDs vs the impact if different CPUs on game load times? I recently saw a video showing a 960pro (m.2) having almost no impact over a standard SATA6 SSD. Would love to see the impact of a few recent CPU's and maybe even OC'ed vs Stock speeds....
  12. Hello, Next year might be the school year where my child begins to come home by themselves. As such I'm beginning to look into electronic door locks and cameras. There doesn't seem to be much in the ways of reviews on the internet so I thought I would check here to see if anyone has first hand experience with these products. Any information to get me started would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  13. The speed difference between spinning rust and an SSD is well worth the small premium in price. Time is money and SSDs save so much time
  14. Ok, after a LOT of pain and suffering I have no idea what was wrong. The situation resolved itself when I did the following: Turned the PC off with the TV still on. Normally I ensure my U3011 is set to primary and turn the TV off first to ensure my the layout of me desktop icons don't get messed up. So there you have it. No idea why but that was it!
  15. Any thoughts? I'm unsure if it's the TV although maybe an issue with the HDMI2.0 port? TV works fine in all other ways. Is there a way to test anything?
  16. Are you watching Twitch on chrome? as a pop-out it has a major impact. Unsure off the top of my head of the impact while in a chrome tab
  17. Yes, that's the one I used and my issues seem to have been resolved.
  18. You have an out of date driver - I can't remember the name of the tool (Slim Drivers maybe) but five me a couple hours and I'll get back to you with the name - it scans your drivers and let's you know which ones to update
  19. I have a 4K TV as part of my computer set up and this morning I booted up and the wallpaper was both askew of center and distinctly green. It is part of a multi-monitor setup where the other 2 monitors are Dell 3011 attached by DisplayPort and DVI. 4K is connected via HDMI2.0 port If I select any resolution + refresh rate which exceeds HDMI1.0 bandwidth, this is what it looks like Not only is it green but even the destktop wallpaper is skewed to one side. Looking at the taskbar icons they look a bit distorted too. However if I drop it back down it looks normal. I have been running this TV at 4096x2160 @60Hz since I got my 980Ti about 3 weeks ago without any issues. Is this a cable problem? No configuration changed (that I know of) between yesterday (working ok) and today.
  20. I've just received confirmation from Acer that we are looking at an October time frame. " late September" is what they specifically said so that will translate into Oct if they ship good quality panels. If they ship in sept I would be wary of the first batch.
  21. I think you should try to get a hold of an OMNI for a review
  22. swallowing my pride to ask this but how do I use a NAS. I have 3 mismatched HDDs in my PC that always cause me issue when I fresh install my OS, so I thought if I got a NAS I wouldn't have to deal with them anymore. However I don't have a clue how to use a NAS.... Does something like this require an OS to be installed - http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/MX54199 How does it appear on the network? Does it matter that my 3 drives are all completely different? (1TB, 2TB and 3TB drives) Is this something that just stays on 24/7? Is it pretty quiet? Thanks!
  23. Looking for a new mouse and always open to trying new things!
  24. Hey guys, I'm looking for your opinions on the best wireless keyboards and mice as far as responsiveness/connectivity are concerned. Keyboard: Currently I have a Logitech K800 and while it's a decent keyboard the input lag is incredible. Very noticeable even as I'm sitting here typing this. Defintely a great keyboard just for mutlimedia use but almost completely useless for any kind of gaming. Mouse: I am using a R.A.T. 9 and it's very good - however I have no idea what surface or mouse mat I should be using with this thing. Sometimes it's great, sometimes it's bad enough to make me wonder if the battery is dead/dying. The other consideration is how it fits my hand. I use the RAT7 at my desk and I love it even though the quality is not as high as you should expect. I have large hands and LOVE the pinky flare on the side of the mouse. Although this is for "couch" gaming I will be about 5' away from the screen and 4' from the PC. Why am I not using wired? Cable and peripheral management - where to be able to put stuff away, easy of use, getting everything out and set up. I dunno, by the end of this I might get a hospital bed table and a second set of wired gear (because the desk gear has the wires routed behind the desk and zip-tied off. Let me know if you couch game what the set up looks like and what you're using. Cheers
