  1. So I'm looking to upgrade my motherboard because it has a bum RAM slot and I want to get a z370 board as I'm looking to upgrade my CPU by the end of the summer. I'm unsure whether or not z370 is backwards compatible, any enlightenment would be wonderful. Or if anyone has heard anything about a new Intel chip coming out that I should wait for that'd be cool too. Thanks!
  2. Best ultrawide high refresh rate monitor?

    Whelp I feel silly now, coulda just used pcpartpicker. Thanks though!
  3. So I currently have a regular old 1080p 60Hz 27" monitor and I want to upgrade. I currently don't have space for a dual or triple screen setup so I'm looking for a large ultrawide monitor (27" or bigger) with a high refresh rate and I'd like to have G-sync as well. I don't really care about TN vs IPS or whatever but I do want a low response time as I do a lot of gaming. I'd like to go up to 1440p as well so it can be a proper full upgrade but 1080p is accepted as well just to have options. Anything out there that I should take a look at? Price doesn't really matter right now because I can always save up to whatever is required.
  4. Please explain TunnelBear

    Why is it not necessary in first world countries?
  5. So after hearing Linus promote TunnelBear video after video I decided to check it out and it seems pretty cool but I have some questions. What's the difference between the TunnelBear extension for Chrome and the base TunnelBear program for my entire computer? I assume the extension just protects Chrome while the program covers all data in and out of my PC. What is the usefulness of being able to "tunnel" to other countries? Does that mean I can watch US Netflix from the UK and vice versa? How fast is TunnelBear because I do quite a lot of gaming/streaming etc. and I really don't want my connection to be slowed down. And finally, is TunnelBear really necessary? Oh and is there a way to let TunnelBear know that I came because of Linus' videos? I intend to get an unlimited subscription once my questions and concerns are satiated. Any help, advice or personal experience would be great thanks!
  6. My CPU is not hot enough

    Well you're running liquid cooling so that seems about right
  7. I assume you mean dust in the motherboard socket. I wouldn't try to dust it off with any kind of cloth, compressed air is your best bet and it's pretty easy to get.
  8. Oculus Rift Steam VR issue

    Nvm, just had to restart Steam...........
  9. Oculus Rift Steam VR issue

    So I just got my Rift a few hours ago and have had fun with the Oculus apps but now I want to try SteamVR but it's not recognizing that my Rift is on. I'm getting this error message I've done all the Googling and whatnot. I've tried manually telling SteamVR to use my GTX 1070 through the Nvidia Controller 3D settings. I can't seem to find the program to run SteamVR as admin though. Any help would be great as there are tons of games on Steam that I'd like to get and some I already have that can use VR.
  10. PC speakers with subwoofer

    My current crappy little Bluetooth speaker is making a horrible whining sound so I'm looking for a good set of speakers to use on my desk for my computer. I'd like a subwoofer but as I have quite limited space on the floor (I like plenty of foot room under my desk) or anywhere around me it's not super necessary. I'll be using them for pretty much everything, video streaming (YouTube, Twitch, Netflix etc.) as well as gaming and for general music. I enjoy a more bass filled experience especially with my music. My budget is $50-75 but I won't mind if it's anything less than that. Can anyone recommend a good set? Thanks!
  11. Windows 10 Audio Desync

    Ah so it can happen just by the mobo and GPU being out of sync? Weird but I guess that makes sense. I restarted my computer and it fixed everything. Nothing on my computer is overclocked though so idk why it happened but it did
  12. Windows 10 Audio Desync

    So randomly out of the blue my computer wants to not properly sync audio on most if not all of the things I watch via Chrome like YouTube and Amazon Prime Video. While watching a movie on Prime it takes not even five minutes until the audio is noticeably off from the visuals and it starts to become an old Japanese film. On YouTube it is either completely fine or the audio is off within a minute. I've changed audio sources (doesn't seem to be a problem when playing through my monitor speakers), I've updated flash player and I've looked at updating my Realtek audio crap but Windows can't find any updates and all I get are shady links when I google it. It's only become a problem in the past couple hours which makes it even more weird. I've also ran the generic Windows audio troubleshooting thing and the only thing it fixed was my audio format which I had set to a different frequency in hopes of fixing the problem so yeah problem solved Microsoft, thanks a lot...NOT. Can anybody help with this?
  13. Fractal Design Define R6 fan hub

    The hub takes one 4-pin fan header from your motherboard and splits it into all the headers on the fan hub. For the 4-pin it just pushes along the PWM signal like normal but for the 3-in fans it regulates the voltage to control fan speed. A 4-pin fan plugged into a 3-pin header would work like a 3-pin fan
  14. Nintendo Switch Mini?

    Was the Switch not portable enough already? Why do we even need a mini version of a very small device anyway?
  15. Increasing Ethernet Speed. ISP cap or not?

    If you're already getting two or three times more than what you pay for why is this an issue? If you want faster speeds (which you technically already have) then pay your ISP more. 9/10 you pay for speeds you don't actually get. I'm on a package that advertises 50mb/s download (fastest in my area cause f*** England honestly) and real world speed I maybe get 20-30 or 40mb/s on a really good day.
