  1. I've done MBP board repair's over the years, so I'm comfortable with fixing the Green Light issues, or whatever other issues arise He's actually one of the people I watched to learn a bit more on MBP repair, and who guided me to buy all of my soldering tools. on top of that I've taken soldering classes. The MBP also comes with a 3 Yr warranty, I'm currently in the works of finding out what that will all cover. I mainly want this one for the 4770HQ lol
  2. Well long story short, my GS63 got smashed in a car accident, the person at fault's insurance reimbursed me what they feel it was worth which leaves me with $1000 bucks to get a new daily carry machine. I've already got 2 P52's one with a Xeon and 128GB RAM so I don't need anything to powerful. Just portable with decent battery life. I loved my 13" Mid-2012 MBP, it had an i7 and 16GB RAM, but I had to sell it for some pretty stupid reasons. I'm looking at getting a Mid 2015 Retina MBP, it currently has 16GB RAM, i7, and a 256GB SSD. I have a spare 1TB SSD for this gen of MBP laying around I would be installing if I purchased it. What are your opinions, is it still a good buy or should i look at other machines. Thanks
  3. What are the specs on the machine, fresh install or upgrade?

    i need some help

    For something cheap and good a 1070 would handle all of that with ease.

    i need some help

    Personally I would just leave it stock until you do extensive research on overclocking, that can easily destroy a nice rig like that. What kind of budget are you working with ? That would make choosing a GPU easier, what are you all planning on running on it, games / applications.

    i need some help

    32GB RAM is more than enough in most cases, maybe just a GPU upgrade? Still a good CPU.

    Looking for 7.1 headset

    I've personally never really heard of a good 7.1 headset, what are the benefits? They are so close to your ears are you even going to experience the full benefit, or even notice if they are 7.1?

    SATA drives not showing up in Windows 10

    Are they new drives or previously formatted? Could be a limitation by the file system type.
  11. It scares me how my people think they are safe behind their VPN when the company is based under the jurisdiction of Five Eyes, Nine Eyes & 14-Eyes, which honestly defeats the purpose of using one..Although that kinda depends on your threat level. with that being said if the companies falls under the jurisdiction they can be forced to provide logs, and they don't even have to inform you.


    Scary stuff.

      I thought the point was being able to show you're somewhere else. Essentially just tricking your ISP.

      This isn't a Blackphone or something.

      like I said it depends on your threat level, and what your using your VPN for., in my opinion that's not really the main point of a VPN. Maybe for more basic users or just general users. But there are hundreds upon thousands, if not millions of people who use it for tons of other reasons.

    best vpn service for to buy;;

    I'm with you on #1, been using ExpressVPN for 5 years now and haven't had a single issue. I recently moved from DD-WRT on my WRT3200ACM to their firmware, which honestly seems like a complete package minus the ability to boost the antenna to 70dBm which was just my preferred strength so it's not a killer by any means. ExpressVPN is out of the jurisdiction of Five Eyes, Nine Eyes & 14-Eyes, which isn't the case for NordVPN, IPVanish, TunnelBear, VyprVPN....the list goes on and all of those do fall under the jurisdiction of Five Eyes, Nine Eyes & 14-Eyes. Not only could companies under their jurisdiction be demanded to provide customer logs, they don't have to tell you about it!!

    LG G4 speed up tips?

    @Chronified If you follow the guide step by step you shouldn't have a single issue I've never bricked a single phone, lost data so just be sure to make external backups With that being said, I guess I wasn't paying attention as I didn't notice it was the Canadian variant. Those had a bootloader work around at one point but has since been closed and offer's no support so I woulodn't advise that route. The next option could be rooting the device, which would allow you to use tons of tools that would improve performance. That would depend on what version of Android you are running though, or obtaining stock firmware files reverting the phone to pre-marshmallow.

    asus n551j laptop gpu issue

    Could be a bad GPU, have you tried manually downloading the current driver from Nvidia? Strictly install the DRIVER only and see if the outcome changes. You can replace some GPU's although you will need to disassemble to find out. I've both changed and upgraded the GPU on my 8570w
