  1. What's the best (most powerful) gpu I could put in my pc with an i5-6600k? I usually run my games at 3440x1440p Thanks for the help

    Sennheiser PXC 550 or HD-1??

    Sennheiser PXC 550 or HD-1??

    I am going to get a pair of wireless over ear headphones and I've narrowed down to either the pxc 550's or the hd-1's. Which one is better? I know the hd-1's are more expensive, but the pxc 550's are newer. My main concerns are sound quality, comfort, and noise cancelling, in that order. What do you guys think?
  4. I've been wanting to build a super simple NAS to basically work like a usb drive (for transferring files quickly between say a desktop and laptop). Are there any (relatively inexpensive) mini-itx motherboards (like lga 771 for instance) for xeons? I have a plan for a NAS already but it has an e-atx board, which is just way too big for me. I'm trying to stay in the older generations to save money, but I don't mind spending ~$80 for a motherboard + cpu combo (the build I had in mind had dual xeons and the mobo for $50). Thanks for any help!

    Good IEM's for $250

    You got me wondering now, since I have a pair that I bought used, if they're legit or fake. Is there any way to tell? They sound great so it doesn't really matter to me, but still, you made me curious.

    Quick update: just checked eBay to see if they still had the ie80's used, and there weren't any under $100, but there is a brand new pair for $220 on there.

    I personally love the sennheiser ie80's, and a used pair of them cost me like $80 on eBay. Headphones that originally ran for $350, and they're on eBay used in very nice condition (I had to buy a new cable for mine but that was like $8) for around $100. If you don't want to go that route Sennheiser in general has the sound signature your looking for from my experience. Check out the iem list in the headphone sub-forum to see what they suggest for your price point.

    Do Gaming Mice have any attitude?

    My best guess is that everyone grew up using a standard mouse, and not many people are willing to change. It's a good concept that can never really be implemented sadly, but it is what it is I guess. Kinda like ergonomic keyboards vs standard keyboards. People choose what is made and what isn't based on purchasing decisions.

    You should try to look into the used xeon market, as you can get an 8 core @ 3Ghz for like $20 and a board for like $30. Linus made a video on it a while back if your interested.

    Leave computer on or shut it down?

    If you are only using the system in 2 - 3 day intervals, it would probably help to turn it off, especially if you are running an overclock on your cpu or gpu. But if you use it every day, you might want to experiment putting the system into sleep mode to see if that turns off the fans and pump. That way the system wouldn't shut down, and the fans and pump could still be off when your not using it. Also, if your computer has it, a hibernation is another form of sleep that is closer to fully turning off the system, but still doesn't completely turn it off and might be better for your use case.
  11. Are there any NAS operating systems to create a NAS for just home network access with anywhere from 4+ tb of storage. Free NAS is out of the running because of how much ram it needs (8gb base + 1 gb per 1tb of storage), and unraid won't work either simply because it's too expensive and is far too complex for my needs. Would the windows baked in "nas" functionality work for my use case, connecting a Mac or PC, or even phone if possible, to it to either stream of copy media off of it? Thanks for any help!

    Can you identify this card??

    If I had to guess I'd say the amd r9 280x, but I can't tell for sure. I'm almost positive it's an amd r9 2xx or 3xx card.
  13. The problem I'm having has to do with bluetooth headphones connected to my phone. When I play a video or music, the audio is synced with some headphones, but not with others. To make it even more confusing, when I use the same headphones using bluetooth on my laptop, it works just fine. For example, my jaybird x3's and generic bluetooth earpiece are out of sync on my phone, while my Bose qc30's are fine on my phone, and the jaybird's and earpiece work just fine on my laptop, as do the qc30's. What could be causing this audio sync issue? I've tried rebooting the phone, updating it, etc. and nothing has worked. Thanks for any help!

    2017 iMac (Radeon 580) vs. Custom PC (+Monitor)

    It comes down to which operating system you need for certain programs (i.e. final cut pro x only runs on macOS) If that doesn't matter, I would go with the PC, just because you will have some upgradability in the long run (and PC's are awesomer)
  15. What's the best low power cpu for use in a custom nas? I'm looking at old xeon's and server hardware, so used stuff is fine. I'm also trying to keep costs as low as possible. I have been able to find old xeon quad cores at 3 GHz for like $10 a chip but nothing low power enough for my needs. Since I probably won't even be running windows on it, dual cores are the minimum I want to have and clock speed doesn't have to be anything high, but should be good enough that it's not a bottleneck in any way. Any suggestions?
