  1. Anne Pro2, turn off the lights. That's as close as you'll get for $150 Get it with the Box Browns, they're usually pretty silent. No media keys though. Maybe a Keychron K2 PBT if you can deal with the layout?

    ground loops could help - that's worth a stab too. but I think it's a misconfiguration - usually these things shouldn't have a hum unless they're manufactured incorrectly.

    A decent audio interface or dedicated DAC - something like a Behringer UMC202HD or UMC22 (cheaper option, but may have some more noise) would clean that output up quite well, along with giving you an ADC for use with mics and stuff. But you might want to take a stab at changing the settings in the ASUS Audio panel relating to impedance to see if the issue goes away - could be set too high or too low.
  4. from backdoor to backdoor. privacy is dead. if you want to be safe from government spying destroy all electronics with a hammer and live a nomadic life in the forest.
  5. Didn't mention -- anything decent on ITX? It's a touch exxy but considering the gigabyte b550i the board's real cheap -- that's the only time for me that it'd make sense. board's $140AUD for .. what's really an 8x50a stage vrm with mediocre onboard audio and great memoc. i'm coming from a ddr3 platform so i'm buying the whole thing from scratch. budget is soft cap of around 750AUD (cpu/mem/mobo/psu), hard cap of 1k.
  6. Awful support/BIOS/build quality/reliability, my current board has been an absolute disasterfire in everything so I'd just like anything *but* MSI
  7. Not MSI again, fuck that shit. Anything else kinda ok?
  8. Ayo. Basically -- 3600 + B550-something-with-decent-VRMs, or 9600KF + EVGA Z370 (I can BIOS update this, dw) Micro (or maybe a 9700KF if I can fit it in the budget). 9600KF comes in at $100 cheaper than the 3600 combo (based on pricing with the Steel Legend, but I'm open to other recommendations for boards) My workloads are: - Gaming (CSGO, Valorant competitively, Forza H4 and COD MW on the side) - Photo editing (Minor edits with Lightroom and some Photoshop, nothing intensive) - Occasional video editing with Resolve, usually H264 1080p but some H265 4k60 The only thing that really scares me is the 6threads on the 9600KF and how that'll age with time - I was burnt hard by the 4670K in games and I don't want that to happen again, so I'm shying towards more threads/cores. Thanks for your responses / thoughts.
  9. Yep, they're $500AUD headphones. (350USD roughly). Definitely a winning situation.
  10. Not a purchase, but a pickup. Bose QuietComfort 35 IIs. I live across from a construction site and after drilling under my window at midnight, they gave me these babies as a "PR gift". Nice bribe, but I'm still not happy about the construction

  12. Users are probably used to consumer devices like iPads where everything is on one screen. ... it is on one part of the screen (the fucking start menu), but they just don't learn.
  13. Lucky's gonna get a little bit warmer with the GPU running full tilt.
