  1. I bought a Chakram. I'll report back when I have a bit of experience with it.
  2. Can't find a single mouse on their website.
  3. I'll look into Realforce's selection. I think I've heard of them on the keyboard side.
  4. All that aside, no real data on the noise level of the different switch options.
  5. Yea, I just watched that review. Seems like a step in the right direction except for the absurd joystick.
  6. There are less loud mice out there I'm sure.
  7. How confortable are you with wiring your own cables ? You could make your own if you have some patience and parts (including resistor).
  8. Hello, I'm looking for a recommendation for a silent gaming mouse. Here are the main things I'm looking for with importance rating (1-5 least to most important). Wireless : 5 (2,4 GHz preferred) Battery life : 3 Low noise for main switches : 5 2 left side programmable buttons : 4 Other programmable buttons : 1 On-board memory : 3 (isn't that a standard with anything that's not dirt cheap ?) Sensor quality : 4 Ambidextrous design : 3 RGB Lighting : 2 Customizable weight : 2 Budget : 2 Ideal weight : around 110 g Usual DPI setting : 1800 Preferred hand : Right-handed I currently use a G903 Chaos Spectrum and have been through 3 of them in the past. They are good but the QC is lack-luster and they don't age very well. They are prone to clicker issues. It's also way too loud and I want a more silent alternative (main focus of my research here). Thanks for the recommendations
  9. Hello, I have the Gigabyte 2070 Super Gaming OC (https://www.gigabyte.com/Graphics-Card/GV-N207SGAMING-OC-8GC#kf) and I'm experiencing the infamous fan problem. The fans go from very low RPM (or is it 0, I'm not quite sure) to 100% as soon as some load is applied and stay at 100% until the system is rebooted. I have tried : 1. Forcing a specific fan speed or fan curve in Aorus engine and MSI Afterburner. Automatic fan curve results in the problem above, while enabling manual mode will automatically put fans at 100%. Fan RPM readings show in GPU-Z, MSI Afterburner or Aorus Engine show 0%. 2. Opening the card, inspecting the two connectors and redoing GPU thermal paste and VRAM thermal pads. The pads were degrading, while still doing their job and there was way too much thermal paste. There were two connectors, one 3 pin and the other 4 pin. Both seem undamaged. No impact on the problem. 3. Uninstalling NVidia drivers completely using a removal tool and reinstalling latest drivers. The only impact is that now, MSI Afterburner shows the correct theoretical fan RPM that the manual mode pushes while the fans still spin at 100%. GPU-Z also shows a reading, different (lower) from MSI's. I now want to try and flash my GPU's BIOS with another version, ideally latest. Searching online, I found that I should proceed in this manner. 1. Using GPU-Z, note current BIOS version. 2. Download compatible BIOS (using the correct version linked to specific VRAM manufacturer ex: F1-9, F10-19, F20-29) 3. Using NVFlash (https://www.techpowerup.com/download/nvidia-nvflash/), backup current BIOS then flash new one. 4. Reinstall NVidia GPU drivers 5. Restart The only problem is finding a proper BIOS for my card. There are none to download on any page from Gigabyte's different 2070 Super versions. Also, on techpowerup's page (https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/?architecture=NVIDIA&manufacturer=Gigabyte&model=RTX+2070+Super&interface=&memType=&memSize=&since=), there is only one 2070 Super BIOS for Gigabyte and it's not for my specific model. Can someone point me towards another repository of GPU BIOS for my card ? Is my reasoning correct here ? Any help is welcome. Thanks
  10. They have confirmed the switches are common cathode. So no go. I ordered them but it's a long lead time as they come from China. I'll open a new thread with the details of the mod project.
  11. Just wanted to drop by and say how beautiful of a job you did on that panel. You are now officially a pro.
  12. Thanks, this is exactly what I'm looking for. There's even a choice of both polarities for all the color configurations. Very neat seller.
  13. I found a cheaper option, just some lack of information on the distributor's page. Overall it's a cheap option even considering it's coming from UK. I'll call them tonight to validate they are common anode. I'll keep the thread posted. https://www.switchelectronics.co.uk/switches/push-button-switches/vandal-resistant-switches/rgb-illuminated-vandal-resistant-switches
  14. So.... this Schurter switch is good for my application ?
