  • Biography
    I'm geology student trying to get masters done in near future. I've been playing around computers since 2002 when we got new machine to replace old P2. My knowledge comes from reading tech magazines and from personal experience. Currently not able to game as much as previously. Daily games are Hearthstone (PC) and Heroes: Charge (Android)

  1. Has this been a thing throughout content or some certain videos?
  2. Do you have option to use DVD or burn to one? That would be what I'd try next. At this point it's hard for me to provide accurate help since I can't see physical system.
  3. @nicklmg I know there's some. Like known tech companies go priority spots and rest after that. But they have dropped several sponsors due viewers commenting on bad quality of product or service. Like Five-Four Club and Hotspot Shield. When has Dollar Shave Club last been on any advertising spot?
  4. Or borrow sisters/mom's/girlfriends/wife's hair dryer.
  5. Depends personal preference and nothing more. I have mine at ~400-500rpm on low load. They will go up to 1200rpm on full load, which I've set to be max because of noise. There is no good or bad or best fpm setting. All depends on what you are looking for. Less noise means lower rpm. Better performance means higher rpm.
  6. ^ Agreed on above. LGA115x and LGA775 are physically different size.
  7. This would be better directed to Twitch support.
  8. They don't really do anything. At most they close some background windows processes. You can achieve much more by manually turning different things off. But with those specs you aren't going to see any effects.
  9. Just making sure. You are using latest version and have tried to reinstall with profiles/settings deleted already? I just tested it with reinstalling latest version and had no issues. The survey dialog has Do not show this again box to tick.
  10. Is this after Windows installed some updates? Have you tried safe mode? Have you tried to repair login? Have you tried to repair installation? If yes, you might need to recovery.
  11. Should be fine. You will find out by testing. Be ready to drop fps down to 30 if you upload can't keep up.
  12. That sentence contradicts itself. Retail and OEM are opposites. You cannot have retail OEM. What you mean is that some OEMs are sold to system builders by retailers. Doesn't make them retail version.
  13. It will be enough for 720p30fps. I think you may need closer to 2700-3200 to get good quality with 60fps. Maybe even 3500. How it impacts your gaming depends on what encoder you are using and which games.
  14. Do you want to keep any of current files? Installer is pretty self-explanatory and there's many guides with pics around the web. Basic steps would be Boot into USB. Follow steps on screen. Only point where you need to make decision is when selecting correct drive for installing. There comes two options. Either format drive and remove EVERYTHING on it. Or install on top of current Windows. Latter will ask if you want files to be saved or not. If you select Yes, they will be moved to folder named Windows.old where you can get them later.
  15. I guess. Only ever had one EVGA product and its still working (2008-). Though we handle RMAs through retailers here.
