    does a 60$ Headphone worth it ?

    Superlux HD668B can be found on amazon for <40 USD. Great analytical sound with a decently wide soundstage. Open back headphones are great for gaming and listening to music too.

    Headphone Recomendations Needed

    Hey Guys, I listen to music a lot and I want to upgrade from some standard Phillips earbuds to some nice cans. I listen to Progressive Metal bands like The Contortionist, CHON and The Helix Nebula. Occasionally I listen to heavier Djent bands like Periphery, Animals as Leaders and Volumes. Lastly I like to indulge in some Metalcore like Dead by April, Escape the Fate and The Fall of Troy. I want an over-ear headphone with nice sound isolation and not too much sound bleed so I can listen to music loud on the bus and so that I can hear music over the sound of my drums. They need to sound great without an amp (will be powered by my smartphone). Right now I'm looking at the Audio Technica ATH M50X's as they are known to sound great with any genre of music. Price range is $200-250 NZD. The M50X's are $230~. Any recomendations for over-ear headphones that sound great listening to Progressive Metal without an amp and are good for travel (buses), please leave the below =) Thanks!
  3. Hey guys, This is my second PC build, just asking for people's opinions before I order the parts. Budget is $1850~ New Zealand Dollars for the parts themselves (no OS needed), a backlit mechanical keyboard, and a 1080P IPS monitor. Using PriceSpy, an equivalent of PCPartPicker with more options. Prerequisites: - Quiet (will be on 24/7 because it will double as a home server) - Low power consumption (see above) - Capable of playing "Triple A" titles at 1080P at medium to high settings - Portable (need to move around the house sometimes). Silverstone SG13 is pretty much locked in. - Large HDD for home server + SSD for boot and programs Games I want to play are Metro: Last Light Redux, Far Cry 4 and GTA V. I will also use NDS, PS2 and GBA emulators a lot with resolutions turned up. What I have at the moment: http://pricespy.co.nz/list.php?l=165567&view=m - Comes to $1850 when shipping is considered. Please give your opinions on what I should change, if anything. I will use PCPartPicker to check compatibility of parts but I'm using PriceSpy for pricing because it takes into account more online stores in NZ. Thanks ^.^
  4. Hi guys, I have a stock NZXT fan at the back of of my source 210 elite case exhausting air. Whenever I turn the PC on it makes a rattling/vibrating noise. I don't know what the problem is because I use rubber mounts which are supposed to stop vibrations. Whats odd is that after I'm logged in an everything is all loaded and stuff the rattling/vibration stops and its back to normal fan operation. It there any way I can stop this from happening because it is very loud and annoying :c Thanks
  5. Looking at this motherboard for mATX build http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/H97M%20Pro4/ In the spec's it says "multi-speed control" for fans and temperature sensing n stuff like that. I wanna know if i can manually dial in an rpm for a fan to spin at. My fans will be plugged into the motherboard headers not the power supply so I should have voltage control but I want to make sure because I love having all fan mounts used but also like a silent system so if I could chuck em all at around 900 rpm that would be sick. Thanks ^.^

    DirectX 12 CPU Usage?

    Not entirely sure what is happening with DX12's release. Is it using the CPU more or less? Don't know whether to spend more on CPU and downgrade GPU or other way around. Does it have a distinguishable performance increase with more CPU threads? Somebody halp D: Thanks ^.^

    mATX 2xSLI wifi?

    Don't bother sli'ing, go with single GTX 980. Especially in a compact case you do NOT want to be adding more heat.

    Cheap build suggestions.

    Grab an A10 7850 APU and overclock it a bit. You don't need 200+ fps because you will be limited by your monitor refresh rate and well.... your eyes. The APU will max out all of those games 60+ fps @ 1080p. 2133mhz RAM is pretty cheap too, pair that with the APU and you are sorted.

    Cheap 1080p 23+in. monitors

    AOC i2367FH http://www.amazon.com/AOC-i2367Fh-23-Inch-Frameless-LED-Lit/dp/B009V8F700/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1430527370&sr=8-1&keywords=aoc+ips It's 1080p and IPS. Pretty low response time and has a matte finish (non glossy).
  10. Hackintosh worth it?

    Why do consoles have lower FOV?

    Requires more graphical horsepower, of which the consoles lack.

    Dark Rock LP - Release Date?

    Going to build a new rig in the Silverstone Raven RVZ02 which should be out by July. Would go with the Noctua NH L9i but even though it's silent and has great performance I can't handle the colour scheme. Does anyone know if the BQ Shadow Rock LP will be out by July? If not I might go for the Noctua cooler and chuck a better looking fan on it... Any suggestions for replacement PWM 92mm fans? Preferably quiet and look nice.

    How loud will my PC be?

    Building a new gaming PC in the Silverstone Raven RVZ01. Stock fan(s) - Silverstone 120mm Slim @ 18dB Additional Fan - Nanoxia Deep Silence 120mm PWM @ 16.9 dB CPU Cooler - Cooling the Intel Core i5 4690S, Noctua LH-L9i @ 14.8 dB (with L.N.A) GPU - Asus GTX 750 Ti Strix OC @ 0dB HDD - Western Digital Green 4TB @ 28dB PSU - Silverstone ST45SF-G @ 18dB Of course, the system is only as quiet as the most noisy component in the PC. Therefore, my PC should be 28dB at max load. Is this silent or close to it? Can anyone with a PC around 30 dB explain how loud this would sound about 40cm away from me on my desk? Thanks ^.^
