    are these temps normal

    Just make sure they don't going above 90 or 95. Your temps are completely normal. 80 might be a bit high for a cpu if you ever see that temp, but it's still fine if it gets that hot

    NAS or Not

    To add onto the comment above, make sure you are discerning the difference between a network switch and a network hub if you decide to look into that. Hubs might seem like another word for the same thing, but in reality they can only support one signal at a time which could mean slowdowns if your NAS is uploading/downloading while you are trying to use the internet. Just something to keep in mind
  3. I see. Guess we'll just have to deal with it. Thanks for the reply
  4. I helped build a PC (special thanks to everyone on this thread, you all played a role) that has a few RGB components including the RAM, GPU, and Logitech mouse and keyboard. The problem is that they each have their own RGB control systems and we have to have them all running for the colors to work. This is far from ideal. Is there any way we can set everything up on a much more streamlined system? Components below: T-Force Nighthawk RAM EVGA 2070 Logitech mouse and keyboard POSSIBLY Corsair fans, which would mean a hub for those parts.
  5. Alright, I'll let him know Thanks for the help everyone
  6. Cooler Master V650 semi-modular. According to the tier list it's pretty decent
  7. Ah, forgot about Zen 2. Should have also mentioned that he doesn't want to mess with overclocking. With that being said, would you still recommend going with the non X variant?
  8. As the title states, he wants to keep the price range as close to $1000 as possible. One thing to keep in mind is that I already have a power supply, so that part won't be needed in the list. Only thing I might be particularly concerned about is the cpu and graphics card combo, but according to a benchmark I found they should be able to stay above 60 fps at 1440p.

    Lol this post really looks like it was made by a bot

    I think i was hacked?

    Have you used any remote desktop software recently such as TeamViewer? While technically not impossible, I find it pretty much entirely unreasonable that someone from the internet has hacked into your computer and given themselves access just to mess with you like that. 100% chance this is just your friends trolling you or something. But that's just my opinion

    I think i was hacked?

    well first I would make sure your siblings/friends weren't trolling you with a remote desktop or just an extra bluetooth keyboard

    Predicting FPS

    Usually if you have modern or somewhat modern hardware you can google how the game will perform on your processor and video card.

    Please go back to 16:9 (Poll added)

    TBH I also hate how modern smart phones aren't always 16:9. That aspect ratio is a standard for a reason. Even if there is a reason for 18:9 to be a thing, it feels kind of like Apple removing the headphone jack for the sake of "moving forward" when the rest of the world still revolves around its use (but of course, not near as bad). I've gotten used to it though.
  14. I have the Hyperx Cloud II and I'm considering buying a more high quality microphone than the one that comes with the headset. The only problem is that I can't seem to find any that are designed to plug directly into the headset itself. I'm not looking for a mic that sits on my desk or one that attaches externally (like the ModMic for example) I would rather be able to just plug it into the existing mic slot on the headset. Does anyone have any recommendations or keywords I can use for better search results? Thanks
  15. Mobo quality isn't really important. He's most likely not gonna touch most of that stuff anyway. I was thinking of sticking with the Ryzen 5 2600x since it's cheap and works well enough. Only issue I'm running into now is that PCPP is telling me that some mobos might need a bios update with specific processors and that's not something he's gonna want to deal with. Any way to know for sure which motherboards will work with R5 right out of the box?
