  • 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. Parts means mechanical failure. Anything broken because of build quality issues etc. Not when you loose or break something.
  2. We have https://linustechtips.com/main/forum/83-hobby-electronics/ You can post that kind of things there.
  3. There's Github link at bottom of Mortis' post. I'll need to check which pw I use here. But after last security issue, I did plan to use it only here or on sites which don't matter.
  4. Poweramp. Its paid app, but worth it. I went through 15+ apps when searching for something equivalent to Foobar on Android. Poweramp is close enough.
  5. Community market is protected against scammers. Steam requires you to spend $5 or more on Store + have 2fa active.
  6. Steam gift cards are sold in stores. Now, I don't know how many places in India have those. But you can buy one like any prepaid thing. Then you redeem the gift card in Steam and use the money as you like.
  7. 1) I'm not sure. Possibly yes. 2) When you buy in Steam, game is connected to your account. No key, no disc. Some games allow viewing CDKEY for external features. When you select to buy as gift, it doesn't show key either. From like Amazon it depends whether its sold as digital or DVD.
  8. Children, please. When i had post count like yours, we were still using vBulletin.
  9. 3pins can be controlled. I have 3x3pins, all controlled with Speedfan. It depends on mobo if there is voltage control option. Some are betters than others.
  10. I'm not sure about rpms. But Sysfan on that board isn't PWM header. Its normal Gigabyte style 4pin with 3pin functionality. Rpm might have just bug. Maybe reset CMOS and try again? Also, update to latest BIOS. I know from personal experience that fan control isn't priority for Gigabyte when they code BIOS.
  11. It's also cheaper to buy German made electronics imported to Japan than it is to buy German made electronics imported to Finland. The in-ears I bought were 15e cheaper there. Europe and European Union are two different things. There are many European countries which aren't part of EU. Namely Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, Norway and now UK. If its easier to think, EU is to Europe what USA is to North America.
  12. Have you tried them one-by-one and in different slots? Try clearing CMOS too. If they are PCIe cards, test them in slots which you know are working (like the one GPU uses).
  13. ^^ Pretty sure those are only ones up for grabs still. Others are for priviledged or paying customers only.
  14. GPUs. SSDs imo only when you need more space. I'm still running 120gb drive from 2013 without any issues. Hard drives also because of space.
  15. Its based on Wraith cooler. Here's some (somewhat accurate) specs: Source: http://informaticacero.com/exclusivo-estos-los-disipadores-las-cajas-presentacion-amd-ryzen-7-1800x-1700x-1700/ Also some info in english: http://www.guru3d.com/news-story/amd-ryzen-stock-cooling-solutions-photos.html
