  1. Resolution help please

    I can get 4:3 just fine. Not 1280x960.
  2. Resolution help please

    380x (it was in the post) I just prefer a stretched 4:3 res. CS go is a bizarre game. Always played it, always will.
  3. Resolution help please

    Hey forum, long time no see. I'm having trouble with my resolution in CS go. I'm trying to run 1280x960 stretched, as 768 is too low a res and 1024 is too stretched for my taste. I'm running a 380x with latest drivers. I was not able to run 1280x960 when I was using my BenQ RL2755 regardless of graphics settings or monitor settings. It just didn't show in CS settings. When I switched to a Zowie (BenQ) xl2411z the the option just appeared like that. I went to Lan and when I got back home and set my PC up again the option no long existed and had changed my res to 1280x1024. I've tried every CS setting and launch option and I've fiddled with every monitor and driver setting. I've tried to set a custom res but and refused and said something about my monitor not supporting the resolution. I went to HLTV and a few other places but I got told that my monitor didn't support that resolution. At a loss of what to do. Help would be appriciated <3
  4. Phone to PC Bluetooth not working

    They're for older versions of windows and don't answer my problems, why do you think I'm here?
  5. Phone to PC Bluetooth not working

    I can see threads online of people saying they got it to work. I even did it on my old laptop without a problem.
  6. Phone to PC Bluetooth not working

  7. Phone to PC Bluetooth not working

    So my internet is down and I want to stream audio from my phone to my computer via Bluetooth. When I try to connect on my phone it does nothing. It says it's paired as a phone on the devices dashboard. I think the PC thinks my phone is just for calls and isn't recognising it as an input Bluetooth device. I'll include a couple pictures. Any idea how to get this working? Using a pixel xl running the latest version of Android and windows 10, (Pixel down at bottom, looks as if computer is recognising it as a phone) (What it looks like on my device)
  8. Help me decide

    good for compatibility if you don't want to think about it, probably also fine if it is a cpu only loop. But yes...

  11. Grommets

    since im cutting the hole myself it shouldnt matter much. Cheers
  12. Grommets

    I'm looking for a replacement grommet for the corsair 570x. I'm going to make a new hole at the bottom for GPU cable routing and I'd like it to look more professional.
  13. Help me decide

    I recommend 1 of 3 options: Get the EK S240. It's aluminium, so you CANNOT mix metals and have to be careful when shopping but it should be fine to expand in the future. The quality is not an issue. If you do want to do your GPU as well (I know you said you didn't but may as well let you know that it's there) theres the S240G and if you really want to pinch pennies there is the S120, although the S240 is much better value. There is also the S360 but if you are just cooling a cpu the 240 will do fine. Get the EK L240. Pretty much the same as the S240 but with copper blocks so you dont have to fret about mixing metals. This wont really get you much performance increase from the S240 and it does cost more. Get a monster air cooler like the NHD15. This will do just as good of a job as an AIO or even a small custom loop (more or less) and probably will end up being cheaper and less of a headache. Water cooling is still a good option but I recommend you go for a custom loop in a kit or a air cooler. AIOs are not recommended by me. Some people swear by them but I've has way too many failures and found them to be less than impressive in terms of long term use and maintenance and quality of construction. EDIT: forgot to mention that both custom water cooling kits I mentioned will be fine for hardline but you'll obviously have to replace the fittings. ANOTHER EDIT: forgot to give links.

  14. Cable routing mods (Corsair Crystal 570x)

    cheers. I probably will cut another for the GPU cables. Is it possible to order a match grommet to line the new hole with?
  15. Cable routing mods (Corsair Crystal 570x)

    A routing hole for the IO or the PSU cables?
