  1. Fiio M3 $60USD. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B018K88OSS/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A2EY5WP9K29AC7&th=1 Fiio makes some other highish end music players. It's smaller than you expect and looks pretty nice. Expect relatively good build quality for this price range. If you just want to make a music play into your headphones then something like Sandisk clip $40 https://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-Player-Screen-MicroSDHC-SDMX24-008G-G46K/dp/B00HCMZ2SE/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1497590307&sr=1-1&keywords=sansa+mp3+player They both have expandable storage. Make sure you check out some reviews and check amazons recommendeds section for alternatives.
  2. The headphones themselves are powered by the adapter. The adapter is battery powered and has a normal headphone output just like you're phone would have.You have to charge the adapter. It has a USB Micro B charge port. You can turn it on and off, play, pause and change volume with the adapter.
  3. $55 Dollars Superlux 668B: https://www.amazon.com/Superlux-HD668B-Dynamic-Semi-Open-Headphones/dp/B003JOETX8/ref=sr_1_1?s=musical-instruments&ie=UTF8&qid=1485563907&sr=8-1&keywords=superlux+668 Mpow Bluetooth adapter: https://www.amazon.com/Mpow-Bluetooth-Receiver-Streambot-Hands-free/dp/B00MJMV0GU/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1485563936&sr=8-3&keywords=mpow The Headphones have an attached short wire that can plug right into the adapter. you can double sided tape or velcro the adapter to the earcup. They are semi open. It's not an eloquent solution, and you may want to change the earpads as they are kinda uncomfortable, but this is the one of the best bang for the buck "bluetooth" headphone you can get. OPTIONAL +$25 HM5 Velour Pads: https://www.amazon.com/Brainwavz-Memory-Replacements-Earpads-Headphones/dp/B00MFDX4YO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1485564291&sr=8-1&keywords=Hm5 Review Video:
  4. I've never tried a projector for gaming, but it could be interesting. The projector looks cool, too.
  5. So I used AIDA64 and it's working properly. I guess the intel program was my problem, but its weird cause this never happened on my 4770k machine. Either way it's working now and not dropping. Thanks for the help!
  6. I use the bios. I also had the physics part of 3Dmark Skydiver looping and saw the same drop happening. Under the gaming load of Civ 5, it didn't drop. I'll try other stress tests too, but I don't think the utility I'm using is the problem, its probably a setting I'm missing.
  7. So I just built a 2700k system and overclocked it to 4.8GHZ. When I go to stress test it, after 1-2 min, the clocks and voltage drop to stock 3.5Ghz. 1) 2) 3) Anyone know what's going on? Thermal throttling is turned off, all c states are disabled, power option is set to high performance, and speed step is off. If you think it's cause the Tcase of 72 C on the 2700k, I had the drop happening when the max temps were only 60C thanks to the low ambient temp in my basement.
  8. Ok I'll try that, thanks!
  9. It's from the top of my sholder to my wrist, not on a sweater.
  10. I was having trouble picking a size for my sweater. The height and width measurements put me in large, but those arm lengths are WAY too long! I'm measuring around 27" from where it indicates to measure sleeve length from, which isn't even as long as X-small. Does anyone know why?
  11. That's a real nice looking board with everything I need, Ill keep it in mind!
