  1. So I ordered my tickets for LTX because I've been wanting to go ever since it started but an internship I am doing interferes with it and as much as I would love to go to LTX, my career is more important. I ordered the LTX Merch pack and two day pass to the event. I still would like the merch pack but I can't go so I'm not sure if it could be mailed to me? I live in the US. Either way. Just wanted to post this here as I could get more opinions.

    Calculating Networking Gear Power Consumption and Pull

    Thank you that's really helpful. I am planning on using the PoE injectors though with the recent price hikes I might look at getting a 5 pack and a PoE switch.
  3. So, I’m setting up a new home network for my parents and at first I was just gonna use Google WiFi (as much as it creeped me out) and I was gonna use power line Ethernet to get Ethernet to a couple of desktops. Well, since then two things have to come to the forefront. Firstly, they have a home security system that I was told ran over WiFi but what I later realized is that is has its own network and it’s causing interference issues with the rest of the WiFi in the House. So anything Mesh is out of the question. Secondly, I did some testing and the power inside their home is just way too old to be reliable for Powerline Ethernet. So...... I found the Ubiquiti networking gear an extremely interesting package. Specifically their Unifi gear. I need this network to have full coverage of 3 separate areas of the house so 3 access points are necessary and one of them has to have an Ethernet passthrough for a desktop in the back bedroom. Most like the AC Pro. I slowly realized that the best option would be to go full Unifi with the switch, router, and access points. But now, I’m worried about powering it. I’m pretty sure it should be fine. But I’m a little worried. I’m not great with this kind of stuff but I’m trying to get better. So far the plan is to use all this gear: 24 port Unifi Switch (non-PoE) - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LZBLO0U/ref=ox_sc_act_title_9?smid=A3SQ9YFE6CSCS0&psc=1 USG - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00LV8YZLK/ref=ox_sc_act_title_8?smid=AANSFONOCR8T3&psc=1 4* 48V .5A PoE injectors - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HXT8MNI/ref=ox_sc_act_title_4?smid=A3LGJ9ZB5RSN9T&psc=1 And this case that has some fans in it - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01FKOW4LS/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=A3FG64J8IOS59V&psc=1 So that’s all the main stuff pulling power. Those 4 injectors will be going into 3 access points and a Unifi Cloud Key. I also need a power strip/surge protector for all this. I was thinking about this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00077INZU/ref=ox_sc_act_title_3?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1 I’m not sure if the 20A would be better. P.S. I want to know all the thought and calculations behind your answer so I can learn. Thank you!!!!
  4. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XT6WQCJ/ref=ox_sc_act_title_4?smid=A2YLYLTN75J8LR&psc=1 This is the monitor I am looking at. I actually have a Gsync monitor already. I am looking into an HDR monitor and Gsync HDR monitors are either absurdly expensive or non-existent. I really do love nvidia (I already have my GTX 1070 Strix), but one thing that I am getting totally sick of is Nvidia's proprietary hardware with Gsync. Also, with the Xbox One X and apparently maybe even the PS4 Pro supporting Freesync I don't see how Gsync HDR especially as it stands now is worth it over a nice Freesync monitor. I will admit, I'm pissed about Vega being totally mediocre.
  5. My power bill is actually extremely low. even if my PC ran at 1000W I'd barely see the difference since I have so many other things in the house that take up more electricity (I have a lot of receivers and amps for powering speakers)
  6. I want to but Vega's so absurdly expensive. You can't get an Vega 64 for less than $650.

    Dragon LAN compared to Intel LAN?

    I have a bad history with LAN connectors that aren't Intel, does anyone have experience with it? https://www.amazon.com/BIOSTAR-X370-Motherboard-Model-X370GTN/dp/B071YW7LBG/ref=sr_1_13?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1512925228&sr=1-13&keywords=am4+mini+itx

    4-pin CPU cord for Mobo?

    Ok, it might be a tight fit but that'll work. I've had that with weird GPUs that have a 6+8 pin before.
  9. I need a blower style card for a mini-itx build. I was gonna try and get something current generation but Vega was a total disappointment. I want an AMD card because freesync HDR monitors are such a better price than Gsync ones. Sadly even looking last gen AMD doesn't have much for people with mini-itx builds. I think I might just go with a used 980ti. I have a GTX 1070 Strix (the best after market 1070 :-} fight me) which I use for my regular rig for VR and such but I really need something to bring with me places and I'm not into laptops at all. So to clear it up, get a GTX 980ti and deal with choppy frame rates, spend too much on Vega, cut my losses by downgrading to an RX 580 or even lower, and basically just find something to survive since Vega seems ****ing amazing but our Nvidia overlords are keeping it from us as long as they can.
  10. I'm working on a mini-itx build with Ryzen and I am confused about what kind of CPU power cable I need for this board: https://www.amazon.com/BIOSTAR-X370-Motherboard-Model-X370GTN/dp/B071YW7LBG/ref=sr_1_13?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1512925228&sr=1-13&keywords=am4+mini+itx I've never had a board that didn't use at least a 4-pin CPU connector before. If I've using a modular power supply do I need anything special to make this work? Any suggestions? I can link the pcpartpicker list if need be.
  11. I recently switched my 4690K in my system out for my 5820K. I have the same OS, same drives, same everything. What I have noticed are a bunch of major slowdowns that would happen at random. Also added in a few more PCIe expansion cards bit only 2 more than I had before and the jump from 16 PCIe lanes to 28 should allow that. What I have been experiencing are major slow downs just using the OS. Randomly my mouse will freeze up here and there. I also am having a lot, a lot more screen tearing in games. I also have been getting low frame rates in games that I use to play on both CPUs just fine! I used to play MGS5 fine using my 5820K and my GTX770 but now I'm having issues with the same specs but a GTX1070. There should be now issues. I'm debating reinstalling drivers for everything or even just formatting my system and starting over. I just has been acting weird. No malware that I can see. No virus. Nothing. I also have been getting a weird issues where games think my monitor is 1080p when it's a 1440p monitor. I also have had major issues that it will display games, programs, anything on my other monitor which is an old 900p monitor. It's very weird. Any suggestions? I thought it could be attributed to the lower single core performance of my CPU but that couldn't be the cause of all of this.
  12. I was trying to bootcamp windows onto my MacBook and it kept failing due to this error. It kept happening so I eventually gave up. Bootcamp had automatically deleted the partition for windows when I started it up the next time but the last time it failed. Now I keep seeing this: As you can see. It thinks the drive is bigger than 1TB and it won't let me resize the partition even to it's original size. Help? I've done first aid on each partition, ran multiple checks, even tried to revert to a TimeMachine backup of the drive. Still didn't work.

    A Good 4k Camera in 2017?

    I like the A6300 though a good lens is expensive. Good suggestion. I may pick one up. Though the price of the G7 is enticing. Might try and save for the Sony because it seems better overall and is smaller to boot.

    A Good 4k Camera in 2017?

    I currently have a Nikon D3300. Though a lens would make things better its really that the tracking is pretty bad. I tried tracking and unless I literally stood perfectly still it kept stuttering.
  15. I have been wanting to upgrade my camera for a while. A long while. But I've been annoyed because it feels like you have to pay out the arse to get anything better than 1080p video. I have been looking into either getting a current gen camera or a refurbished/used last gen camera. I've though about refurbished BlackMagic Cinema cameras but because I'll be recording by myself I kind of like those flip out screens on the Canon DSLRs. Any suggestion for a really good 4K camera around $1000? I want some good color range. Just generally I want crisp, beautiful video to edit with.
