  1. It just came in the mail yesterday so I think I'm just going to return it. Wasn't too concerned with USB mics after i've had a CAD U37 for years. Guess I wasn't ready to upgrade after all.
  2. Hello lads, I recently picked up an Audia-Technica AT2020 USB+ on eBay and first impressions have been less then stellar. The mic sounds the way it should when I am literally a centimeter away but backup to about 3 inches and I'm barely audible. This happens in Windows 10 and Kubuntu, I don't have a Windows 7 ISO to test, It sounds the same playing back in windows/Linux and from the built in monitor itself (tested with AKG earbuds and Senheiser HD4.40's) The last thing I want to do is return it, but I'm genuinely at a loss. I've even tried plugging the mic directly into a phone charger and listening to the monitor that way. nothing. Any help would be greatly appreciated! demo of what's happening: mictest.wav
  3. Considering I just upgraded to it from a 750ti last January, I think I'm going to keep it for a while 750ti aged like fine wine, I don't think I could ever part ways with mine.
  4. that's the problem now is it's almost impossible to work in, I've spent days trying to fit a Quadro 400 in as a display adapter and virtualizing Windows with the RX580, but for the life of me cannot get everything plugged in. I guess I'm just trying to justify dropping the $150 on something that doesn't exactly age like the rest of the machine. TL;DR: I have no room
  5. So this is an interesting question that I never thought I'd ask myself, About 5 years ago I was gifted an NZXT S340 Elite for my birthday. Beautiful case only shattered the window once really dressing up my turd of a Pentium 4 G2020/750ti build. But I've graduated, got an actual job, and proper ATX board with an RX580 Strix and enough storage to justify a separate Freenas server, Have I outgrown my case? Would the LianLi O11 dynamic be a reasonable upgrade from here? (I promise it looks better in person, S8 Camera is not doing any favors here. Also a slightly outdated pic, Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro and Zen 1 do not play nicely with each other. they constantly disconnect and freeze requiring a restart to fix)
  6. You can find USB microphones under $50 all day, I personally daily drive a CAD U37. It's a bit expensive on Amazon now, But goes on sale all the time. I picked mine up for $35, been rock solid for a few years now.
  7. Sounds to me like a board failure, I would suggest contacting Gigabyte about that since it's only a year old, Either that or trying a different board if you have a friend on Ryzen as well. (Thank you AMD for backwards compatibility!!)
  8. Honestly, Since I can still access Gravity, I think I'm just going to back it up and re-install. This poor pi routinely racks up over 100 days of uptime. Best use of a pi ever.
  9. Neat that i'm on a different screen, But still not helpful when I can't change the password. Since when did raspbian stop booting to a command line? I'm confident i've never changed this either, Still default pi & raspberry
  10. Before you go throwing money at the problem, Try using another mic in the same port first, soundcards in 2020 are a hard sell.
  11. Before you click off immediately, Try hearing me out. Obviously I've been all over the internet trying to find a solution to this, But I seam to having the opposite of everyone else. Started my night off with deciding I should update my PiHole server, no problem right? SSH into the thing and can't remember my password. So I just grabbed an HDMI cable to reset it... But for the life of me can't figure out why I can't get to the terminal?? It's like it's getting stuck booting, But the PiHole API still works just fine.(See pics). I can get into the web interface just fine, But why in gods name can't I get into the physical terminal? I've tried rebooting it with and without my PADD display, Did the same thing. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
  12. This is the first time i've needed to use it. If it runs in a browser then i'll just use Sandboxie. And in all honesty i'm most likely going to use a Live CD, Figured I should make a thread since I can't find anything online that discusses this:
  13. Hello friends, I think it goes without saying Zoom is one of the most sketchiest conference programs being used today, And as I have a job interview this Friday, I would like to get it running in a VM first. I've tried pushing my camera both with the Virtualbox extension pack and as a standard USB device, neither work on Windows or Linux (Not pictured because my PC BSOD when I kill the VM but I also tried Manjaro), Camera is a C920 Pro, Works fine on my base system, Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
  14. Looks like no sliding server rails was a blessing in disguise, my unit barely fits in my rack. Didn't even think to measure it first. Either way, glad it worked out in the end.
  15. Well I tried to be fancy and go with proper sliding rails, But my wallet is telling me generic bottom supporting rails are the way to go. I get that this isn't consumer grade hardware, But why the fricc are 4 2.5 foot long strips of metal going for over $100 used. I swear this whole industry is nothing but a proprietary cash grab.
