    Rog 1070 Temps Help?

    I wouldn’t worry it, you are still well within the safe temperature threshold.

    Fan Orientation. Help Needed.

    A general rule of thumb is to have more intakes than outputs (though just barely more). This is to create positive air preasure in the case (air preasure in the case is higher then outside of the case) which repels dust entering through unvilltered openings of the case. I don't know where your side fans are located, but perhaps move one of them to the front for intake. Bring air in through the bottom and front and out through the top and back.

    Horrible Performance When Gaming On Laptop

    Make sure in the Radeon control panel under the switchable graphics tab you have saints row (or whatever other games) set to maximum quality. Restart the laptop.

    Horrible Performance When Gaming On Laptop

    What kind of performance are you getting? you can try going into the AMD control panel and manually setting which GPU to use for any given application.

    Is anti-aliasing needed at higher resolutions?

    It is mostly personal preference. I personally dont notice any jagged edges and i play with AA off. (I play on 1080p 144hz)
  6. What is the monitor/ how old is it? Your monitor may be dead/ dying and producing the green lines. You should also try reinstalling the GPU drivers. Uninstall using DDU and reinstall from Nvidia's website. If neither the monitor nor the drivers account for the issue, your motherboard is the most likely bet if the problems persist on integrated graphics.
  7. your CMOS battery may be dead, try replacing that. Also, not much point unplugging the PC from the wall everynight, when shutdown your PC will use a pretty negligible amount of power.
  8. No, that is a workstation grade GPU and it is not designed to run games (though it can, just not well). Your are better off investing in another GPU (something like the gtx 1060) and then you could use your quadro to encode stream with. What are the rest of your specs?

    Unable to set refresh rate

    Actually... I seemed to have fixed it. I simply uninstalled the monitor from device manager and rebooted and now it works... which is weird because i did that several times before posting this to no avail
  10. I clean installed windows yesterday, but i am having an issue getting my display (benq xl2720z) to correctly run at 144 hz. Previously, i went to nvidia control panel, set resolution, then the refresh rate dropdown would have an option for 144hz. It does not however. I then created a custom resolution, manually set the refresh rate to be 144hz, but the custom resolution doesnt apear to be saving. I am unable to select 144hz as an option from within games, so i assume that somehow the monitor isnt being recognized as 144hz. I manually installed the drivers from benqs website, and gpu drivers are up to date. Rest of my system specs are in my Sig. Thanks for any help!
  11. Not entirely sure what to title this, so pardon the vague title. Basically, i had an issue with my iphone where audio from headphones would be mixed with frequent static "pops", making it very annoying to listen to. The headphones worked fine on other devices. I assumed that the issue was most likely due to gunk buildup in the audio jack, so i decided to use a syringe to spray some Isopropyl alcohol inside of the jack (not my brightest idea). I did this, hoping that the jack would be mostly waterproof, but turns out that a decent amount of the alcohol penetrated into the phone. The original issue was resolved, but now the bottom quarter of my screen around the headphone jack is discolored due to alcohol being behind the screen. My question is this: should i take apart the phone and let it dry, or will it dry on its own? I would rather not take apart my phone if i can avoid it.

    Using a gaming headset with a dual jack on a case with seperate jacks

    Simply use a 4 pole 3.5mm to 3 pole 3.5mm adapter. Edit- there are tons of them, here's one that should work

    PC black screening from turning on Fan in same roo

    This sounds like a house wiring issue. While turning on a power heavy device can effect the power in the rest of the room (ie when I turn a powersaw on the lights dim briefly) it shouldn't effect a pc enough to cause it to crash.

    Help with wifi/ethernet connection!

    I'm not quite understanding what you are asking... you are comparing two different things. 2.4/5ghz refers to the wave frequency of the wifi waves. Power line Ethernet does not use wifi. Also, keep in mind that the speeds you are describing are theoretical. Actual speeds will be lower.
