  1. Hi, I'm playing World of Dragon Nest windowed to 1600x900. I want to be able to play with max or high settings at stable 50-60fps. Is that possible? My specs: i7-8700, 16GB DDR4-3000MHz, RX 5700 XT 8GB I am trying Bluestacks and Nox Emulator. I've read that it's better to have a 2nd dedicated GPU. I have a spare GT 1030 2GB that I'm letting someone borrowed for the meantime. Will using that make significant difference? What should I do to be able to play at stable 50-60fps? Thanks a lot.
  2. Hi, I hope someone can help me troubleshoot the issue. My PC freezes for about 3-10 seconds randomly. Sometimes when I'm watching youtube, or watching some local videos, or launching a game. (I haven't tried playing a full game yet). Here's a video I took when I try to launch Euro Truck Simulator: https://drive.google.com/file/d/123890L_Dev_KhMMekF4roXUV9K0En04V/view My specs: i7-8700, Asrock Z390 Steel Legend, RX 5700 XT Nitro+, Seasonic Focus+ Gold 750W I recently changed hardware from: i7-8700, Asrock Z370M Pro4, GTX 1070 EXOC-SNPR, Seasonic Focus+ Gold 750W I dont know if this has any relation to what's happening but my old hardware had problems with the GPU and Motherboard which is why I changed them. Here's the thread for the issue of the old hardware: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/1126446-i7-8700-pc-wont-work-without-dedicated-gpu/ I also have a Seasonic SS-520FL 80+ Platinum 520W PSU and I did use this and the Focus+ alternately to see if it's the PSU causing the issue but it's not. I also checked the PCI Express Link State Power Management under Advanced Power Setting to make sure it's set to OFF. Then set the power setting to "High Performance" Please help me troubleshoot the issue.
  3. Is getting the RX 5700 XT Sapphire Nitro+ worth getting over Gigabyte OC for $32 additional price? I can say I cant go wrong with any but I just wanna know if the additional cost is worth it.
  4. I forgot to mention that I checked that on the BIOS after it booted just to make sure, also I did reset the BIOS when troubleshooting.
  5. Hi, my PC has been okay for almost a year and one day it just gives me no signal / black screen on the monitor. i7-8700, Asrock Z370M Pro-4, GTX 1070, Seasonic Focus+ Gold 750W, 16GB DDR4 Did the troubleshooting, removed all components except the motherboard, processor, and RAM. Same issue. Cleared CMOS / BIOS, same issue. Tried to reseat the RAM, tried 1 RAM, tried the 2nd RAM alone, same issue. Tried another PSU (Seasonic Platinum) from a different PC, still same issue Now I'm just left with the RAM, Motherboard and processor to test right? With that probably it's the RAM or Motherboard. I did test the RAM on a different PC and it works fine, so it should probably the motherboard that's faulty. Now I need a PC ASAP since I have work to do so I took one PC from my icafe, specs: i5-4670, Gigabyte H81M, GT 1030, 8GB DDR3 I removed the PSU and GPU and replaced it with my Seasonic and GTX 1070 respectively. And it doesnt work, with the same issue. Now my board doesnt have HDMI so I cant run the iGPU of this i5-4670 PC so I plugged in the GT 1030, to my surprise it worked. Now I have this crazy idea of trying the 1030 to my i7-8700 PC. And it also worked! I am puzzled, maybe it's my GPU that's broken, but why wont my i7-8700 PC work with the iGPU? Is it because the Motherboard it also faulty? So both my GPU and Motherboard got problems? How and why did it happen? Both of them are plugged in to an APC UPS with voltage regulator & surge protector. EDIT: I forgot to mention that I checked BIOS if there's something affecting the iGPU to not boot, none. Also I did reset the BIOS on the troubleshooting steps.
  6. I did that too. The WiFi card has 2 wires connected to them, one wire is taped on the SSD (which is taped to HDD before but I upgraded it to SSD a year ago) then the other is taped on the battery. Maybe the one taped to HDD before boosts its signal because the HDD is metal? But it's weird because when we open our mobile hotspot the laptop has no issues connecting.
  7. I recently sold my laptop to my good friend, Lenovo Y50-70 Touch, i7 4th Gen with GTX 860M and Windows 10. I never had issues with the wifi because the router is just really close to where I use the laptop. Now my friend is having wifi issues at their house as intermittent even when near the router, we uninstalled and reinstalled every version of the drivers but still same issue. We noticed that if we connected the wifi to our mobile data hotspot, the connection is smooth. So first thought is that maybe there's something wrong with the router, but every other device connects to the router without issues, also we used a USB Wifi Adapter on the laptop and had no issues connecting with the router. There must be something going on with the specific connection of the laptop and router.. I hope someone here could help us pin point the problem. One solution we both agreed is for me to just provide a USB Wifi Adapter for him to use, but I wanna know what's causing the problem. I feel bad selling something that has issues to a good friend of mine. Thank you for responding.
  8. Yes, since the button to set it to default is already grayed out. Also it works on discord and twitch.
  9. I have BM800 connected to Behringer U-Phoria UM2. It's working well before, I do discord and also push to talk with my games such as Apex Legends, CS:GO and Overwatch. But after I changed the position of my Mic, it doesnt work with games anymore. It does work when I try to record on twitch and also when I check the audio settings in Windows. It seems to work too with Discord but it no longer works in-game. When I try to activate push to talk, it doesnt show my icon saying anything also when I just leave mic open w/o push to talk still no avail. What happened? I hope someone could help me. Thank you!!

    Hearing like Shroud

    Video 1 of 2 seems like most of the sound are coming from behind Video 2 of 2 seems like most of the sound are coming in front, though some sound seems to be behind due to the passing bullets going behind. Am I right? Btw, thank you for confirming that surround audio reveals more directions, that is my question by asking stuff about vertical and horizontal. It's like using surround software makes my audio shitty but at the same time improves audiolocation, which if playing games is advantageous. Still, I feel like I'm better at audiolocating with Stereo but maybe I just got used to it, I'll give Sonic or Atmos a chance and try them with some games.

    Hearing like Shroud

    Hi, I was wondering if my audio set-up is already decent or if I need a major upgrade to hear game sounds like shroud. I got an Audio Technica ATH-AD700X Open Back Headphones connected to Behringer U-Phoria UM2 USB Audio Interface. I think I'm getting a good audio location but watching streamers play makes me wonder how they seem like having a spider sense with audio. Maybe my set-up is good enough but my ears are just bad, I just need a confirmation if that's the case. Also I've watched from one of Linus' videos that it's mostly software driven to improve audio location. I tried Overwatch with 3 settings. First just using the default (stereo), second using Windows Sonic, third using Dolby that comes within the Overwatch Audio settings. I found out that for my ears I think just the default (stereo) seems better. But when I try to research everyone says Dolby should be better. Maybe stereo is good with horizontal sound tracking while the other Spatial Sound software like Sonic & Dolby is better with more directional sounds including vertical? Or maybe again, I really just have a bad pair of ears. Hehe. I dont know for sure, I hope someone can enlighten me.
  12. Thanks for the time, I think I got my answer now. I searched for Windows Movie Maker alternative and got VSDC. Or if you want an open source one you can check Shotcut. Thanks again.
  13. But I dont think it's easy to use for moms like some other software that is specifically designed for those stuff I mentioned.
  14. Hi, my mom wants to create an audio-video presentation composed of pictures, music and texts. Any program (paid or free) that I can use? I heard movie maker does all of those. I hope I can get suggestions that is easy for moms to use. Thank you!!
  15. Is there a way for me to create a macro to switch playback devices instantly with just using Corsair iCue software? Or is the iCue software only limited to doing recorded keystrokes macro? I am aware there are a lot of other programs that I can download but I was hoping to utilize the macro software of the keyboard.. I hope someone could help me. Thank you!
