  1. First off, I'm not sure this is the correct forum. My apologies if it is not. The facts (long story short): My elderly parents are in Dallas. I am in Salt Lake City at the moment. My parents have Roku on both of their smart TV's I sometimes have YouTube videos I want them to see (which I know they will appreciate). Currently, this involves calling them on the phone, and waiting for them to use the remote to type in a partial title, then have them find the proper video (often requiring I send them a picture of of the thumbnail on whatsapp). Is there any way that I can send a video directly to their YouTube app where it will just play? Somewhat like casting to a local Chromecast? Any insight will be appreciated. Thanks
  2. Same. I noticed in the pop up it does not list advanced access in the OG plan. I really hope this is a bug and they didn’t just remove that for long time supporters.
  3. I'm currently running a 2700X on a ASUS ROG Strix X470-F. I want to swap this out with a 3700X. My understanding is that this board can run a 3700X, just without support for PCI gen4. Is this correct, or should I wait until a new board can be acquired as well? Thanks!
  4. I went ahead and grabbed a Matebook last night. Specifically because it's not the 2019. Current one is on discount, and the new one doesn't have much I need. So far so good.
  5. Do you have one? I'm a bit worried about support. I've heard from a little birdie that if you purchase through MS they will run interference for you on support stuff.
  6. No need for NIC. Primarily always will be on wifi (my desktops are on 10gbit but for a laptop, wifi is fine).
  7. Budget really isn't an issue, although I don't want to be overpaying just because. Max weight would be about 3lb/1.4kg I'd like to get at least six or more hours on normal usage (not videos or gaming). The sRGB matching is not going to be a huge deal, although (ofc) I don't want something completely horrible. Not going to be doing much content authoring on this thing. Obviously the more upgradable the better, but these days you're lucky if you get to replace the storage.
  8. Thanks for the response. The Surface Laptop seems so overpriced for what it offers. Not even Thunderbolt.
  9. I currently have a Dell XPS 15. I chose it because I wanted something with good build quality, and a discreet GPU. I have no issue with the device at all, except the weight. I primarily do server side coding, and need to transfer to a lighter device. My primary concerns are quality of keyboard and 16 gig of ram (as I want to be able to run Linux dist in VM) and 15"ish screen. I am looking for recommendations. Currently I've been exploring: Surface Pro 6 LG Gram ThinkPad X1 Carbon Any advice you have will be appreciated. Thanks
  10. LOL yeah. To be fair, it's intended for mounting radiators on the external surface of your case, which I suppose in a bit more "niche" than how I'm using it. But yeah, chunk of cash for just a piece of metal.
  11. Thanks again. This worked great! (see attachment)
  12. @For Science! This is exactly what I need. Thank you so much!
  13. Greetings, I have this issue and I've looked around trying to find a solution/product. I have not been successful. I have a space in my case for a 360mm radiator, but I only have/need a 240mm. I want to cover the whole space with fans, which I have. But one of these looks "off" because it's not at the same level as the fans on the radiator. Is there some kind of faux 120mm radiator, or even a riser made for this kind of situation? Thanks
  14. I'm going to be doing my first rigid loop soon. I want to practice heating/bending PETG, so I'm looking for the cheapest tubing I can order, which will still bend like the good stuff. I just don't want to waste money on high quality tubing that I'm just going to screw up while learning. Suggestions?

    PG348Q or X34P?

    I'm looking to purchase a 1440p/Ultrawide/IPS/G-sync/High(ish) refresh monitor. Currently I'm looking at the Asus PG348Q and the Acer X34P. I am bias toward the PG348Q as Asus is a brand I've had more positive experience with, but the X34 has a stated refresh rate of 120hz (over the 100hz of the PG348Q). I've never gamed at more than 75hz, so I'm not sure how important 100hz vs 120hz is. Also, I have no experience with either of these displays, so I don't know if either of them have known issues. I'm looking for recommendations on this. Which of these panels would you choose, or do you know another display which fits my needs that you would suggest instead? Thanks!
