    Speaker Making High Frequency Sound

    After looking up your motherboard (MSI Z77 Mpower listed on your profile), it's very likely at fault. (the motherboard's onboard audio circuity doesn't seem to be isolated from the rest of the motherboard, which can cause what SSL described. But to eliminate the speaker from the speaker from the issue, you could just try plugging it into another device and attempting to reproduce the same effect. Buying and using either a usb or pcie soundcard should eliminate the issue. (I'd recommend testing the speaker with other equipment, e.g. phone or other pc, before buying a soundcard and I'd also recommend usinga pcie soundcard)

    this means eco mode is on, right?

    Yes, but it did confused me as well.

    Speaker Making High Frequency Sound

    It's probably the speakers. But, if this doesn't happen when plugged into another another 3.5 mm jack on another device, then it's probably your motherboard's build in audio circuity.

    should i upgrade my case?

    You'll need a new case for most gaming gpus.

    I'm building a gaming pc need help

    The restrictions for your gpu are usually the wattage of your power supply and physical restraints in your case. Another one would the power of your cpu as a low power cpu could bottle neck your game performance.

    MSI 1070 or Strix 1080?

    The 1080 can also be seen as being more future proof then the 1070.

    Should I delete previous versions of windows

    Really depends on whether you plan on going back to an older os or not. (I'd just get rid of any older versions if I didn't plan on going back)

    From a person who only uses an ipad. The most, and probably only interesting thing, in my opinion, was the new imac pro (mainly because of the inclusion of a xeon and high end spec) . Apples also late to the party with quite alot of their new products (such as the homepod, vr, external graphics and making multitasking on ipads better). The new watch faces were mostly awful looking or pretty useless. The new ios control panel looks awful. The "files" application is a weird but welcome move for ios. The way that external graphics (through thunderbolt) seemed to be locked down to only an apple selected gpu in an apple dock was to be expected. The fact that they're starting to support vr seemed like they were telling you to either go buy a high end end mac or buy their external gpu. And the rest didn't gain my attention or memory.

    MSI 1070 or Strix 1080?

    If you can afford it, go for the Strix 1080.

    graphics cards in laptops

    It's the full desktop version, nvidia seems to have retired their mobile range of processors.

    Will this fit?

    Ram height on the bottom, it will work.

    .MSI Z170-A Pro, Socket-1151

    Nope, they just don't review many motherboards.

    New Keyboard and Mouse

    There is an audible click and it honestly feels a lot like a mechanical keyboard.

    I can't take out my motherboard.

    or it could be something worse. "crackling sound" is a bit vague to come up with an answer
  15. Faster_Speeding

    I can't take out my motherboard.

    That cracking sound isn't a good sign at all.
