  1. discord has a major outage *again*... how long before the entire internet migrates again?

    1. Twilight


      this one is google's fault though

    2. manikyath


      still, it's an "all eggs in a single basket" fault.

  2. so.. i expected this to be a horrible gimmick, but...



    yup, that's rainmeter skins running on the damn trackpad. it also does youtube, discord, calculator, and so on. you can even play mahjong on your trackpad while camping in fortnite.


    and on top of all that, it's actually a pretty nice trackpad as well.

  3. so.. i came home to my desktop being all mixed up, black wallpaper and everything..


    windows *decided* to update nvidia drivers, breaking them in the process...

  4. center negatives are a rare sight these days (unfortunate because they really are the better choice) but yes, good point.
  5. well.. honestly, if you want to make it easy on yourself, just get a short extension cord. past that, just find a place that sells power supplies and look for a 12 volt power supply that matches or exceeds the 3.3A rating, and has the same plug. i get that stuff off reichelt.de, but i'm sure the UK has better alternatives.
  6. something to note is that both these (unfortunately) decided to use pcie for the wifi, and usb for bluetooth. so it's a "single adapter", but it's two seperate connection points.
  7. i doubt it'd make any impactful change, but i suppose 3x120 would in theory be abe to push more static pressure, but would also be a bit louder.
  8. well, you can hook some synthetic loads to your power supply and see what voltages do.. but if you're suspecting the power supply it may as well be a healthy thing to swap it outright. that said, depending on how hard of a life you've put the fx8320 trough, it could be a cpu instability issue.
  9. in the presuming that it's to replace the build in your signature, drop the SSD to 240GB and salvage the 1TB drive out your old rig for mass storage.
  10. if there's nothing indicating an issue before the reboot, that's a hardware / bios issue.
  11. with some delays because life is bullshit.. front I/O and card reader box is finished. hoping to finish off the case this weeked...
  12. thats some form of software initiating the restart (ps, the "other - unplanned" is a default, it's only ever different when it's filled in on windows server)
  13. literally useless. read what your computer was doing around the time it rebooted. was it a reboot initiated by the system then it's probably windows update. if it was an event 41 then it was a hardware or software issue, possibly a bluescreen (event 1001).
