    How to do maintenance on headphones

    I have two pairs of sennehiser headphones that both make creaking sounds from the hinges (the sound comes even if i dont play anything). does anyone know of a good source for figuring out how to safely disassemble headphones so I can oil these hinges or if anyone knows of another way to solve this issue. Honestly I am surprised to find that more people do not have this issue.

    headset creaking?

    Creaking. it sounds like it comes from where the cushioned cups meet the headphones, although I could be wrong

    headset creaking?

    So I have started to notice that my sennheiser 6xx and pc37x both creak pretty bad. small movements from moving my head slightly or talking causes them to creak. It doesnt bother me too much but the noise is actually getting picked up by the mic on the pc37x. I am trying to find a way to fix it. only thing I saw was to take out the earcups and blast em with canned air,which I did but didn't work. Does anyone know of a way to prevent the creaking or maybe suggest headset/headphones that wont creak?

    ROCCAT - VULCAN 120 ?

    I currently use the logitech G170+ keyboard which I like, but it gets dirty easily and the only way to really clean it is to remove all of the keycaps. So I was kind of looking for a new keyboard and I heard about the vulcan 120 which has the totally exposed switches for easy cleaning. Does anyone have any thoughts on the roccat keyboard or any other keyboards with the same style of exposed switches?

    looking for a 27inch monitor

    Thanks for the info, didn't realize I was being stingy at $500. That monitor looks promising but I might just wait and save up some more for something like the ASUS ROG PG279Q from your list (thanks for that by the way, very interesting). I usually try to stay away from the bargain items because from my experience I get burned from them (got a cheaper motherboard for my PC and quickly realized I needed more IO than what was given, and then the monitor pixels going after 2 years of use just sitting on a desk). And yeah I think IPS will be the way to go for me, but I appreciate the TN suggestion.

    looking for a 27inch monitor

    Like the title suggests I am looking for a new monitor for gaming. Looking for 27inches, 1440p (not against 4k monitors just something that I am willing to give up since high refresh rate 4k gaming is a long ways away for me), high refresh rate (doesn't need to be crazy high, just above 100), and color is really important as well (so probably IPS). Budget would ideally be around $350- $400 but I can go up to $500 (In USA). Feel free to post other slightly more expensive monitors because I usually wait for a sale anyway. If it matters I currently have a gtx 1070 and intel 6700k and my monitor is an Acer GN246HL. Thanks in advance for the suggestions. Reason why I am upgrading: dead pixels.
  8. replacing all the guts of a laptop seems like a bit much for me. replaced the thermal paste on my laptops once and ended up breaking one.
  9. That hp looks interesting, but I don't see how that dell is worth another $1000. thanks for the suggestion.
  10. Started going back to school for programming and looking for a laptop. Probably going to pick up something with: i7 cpu 16gb ram 256gb SSD I don't think I will need any kind of dedicated GPU for my school work, weight isn't much of an issue, and I won't need it until the fall so having to wait for it isn't a con either. Usually I would hop onto massdrop for something like this however they pretty much exclusively sell gaming laptops which are a little more than what I am looking for. Are there any other places where I can get a discount on laptops like massdrop? Trying to keep it around $1000

    Graphics card fan seed oscillation.

    but wouldnt that increase the amount of time between turning the fan on and off? my problem is that it happens too frequently.
  13. I use MSI afterburner to OC my GPU a bit, but my fan for my graphics card revs up and then goes back down about once a second. I dunno how to fix pls help. included is my fan graph thing.

    Major fps drops

    just making sure that you uninstalled your nvidia drivers before downloading the 980 ones (after you took the 1080ti out). I know that updates can sometimes mess up your cards and switching cards out completely porbably has a chance to do the same thing. this is also the simplest thing to check so why why not.
