  1. Hello, My current audio setup includes a Schiit Stack (Magni 2 + Modi 2) and the Sennheiser HD 598's. I noticed recently if I leave my PC idle for a long time, or have it in sleep mode for a while, that the audio will sound higher pitched than it should. The only solution I have found is either restarting my PC or turning off and on the amp. Does anyone else have this problem or know why it happens? Cheers guys.
  2. Hi guys, I'm looking into upgrading my audio setup. I've just bought a pair of Sennheiser HD 598s, along with a Schiit stack, which is awesome, but I need help when it comes to the microphone setup. I've bought an Audio Technica AT2020 XLR mic, along with a Behringer Q502 mixer and a RODE PSA1 arm. Nothing has arrived yet, so I'm unaware of how they need to be set up. Basically my question is this: Is there any other accessory I need to buy for my microphone setup? I'm new to the whole stand alone mic game, and need a hand. Thanks guys!
  3. Yes you can. The brand does not matter, since they usually only differ in aesthetics and possibly clock speed. Although, it might be visually unappealing, so try to find the same card if aesthetics bother you.
  4. Well there's a few things to consider: 1. The 1080 TI hasn't been released or announced yet, so it's hard to know what to expect, or what will be recommended when we don't even know the specs or price. Obviously any spec's we have now are just speculations. Also, it could be many months until the 1080 TI is released, so if you're looking for an upgrade in the near future, your best bet would be to go for the Titan XP if you have the budget, or the 1080 otherwise. 2. Much like the 980 TI and the original Titan X, there is a chance that the 1080 TI will be inferior to the Titan XP (this is just my own speculation, but I doubt they would make it better, since "Titan" is supposed to be the best in their GeForce lineup). If you're willing to wait until its release, the 1080 TI will likely be in between the 1080 and the Titan XP in terms of both price and performance. 3. Considering the Titan XP can't even get 144 FPS at 1440p in some AAA games, I wouldn't expect 1080 TI to "overkill" 1440p 144Hz gaming. It all depends on your definition of overkill, too. Titan XP absolutely destroys the 144 FPS mark on many popular games, like LoL and CS:GO, but doesn't quite manage it on games such as GTA V and Witcher 3. Hope I helped!
  5. No it isn't. RAM is cheap enough to justify the small extra cost. Makes it easier if any programs you may run in the future benefit from a lot of memory.
  6. Hey guys, As the title says, I'm looking for a good, high capacity battery bank. I currently have a 6000mAh one, I need one that other people can use simultaneously. I found this one on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00I7MZEAY/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&linkCode=sl1&tag=digitren08-in-cont-20&linkId=5b984cf3375dbae0fbccd28504c06ec0 It is 20,500mAh , so the capacity seems pretty good, but I was just seeing if anyone has had any experiences with this particular one, or if anyone can recommend any others. Thanks!
  7. I'm still using my old RAM at the moment, (2x8GB, Dual Channel, 1600mhz) and XMP is locked onto "Disabled". I guess it doesn't support XMP. I've got a few things coming in the mail for my PC, so when they arrive, I'll swap it out then.
  8. Okay, that seemed to fix quite a few of the problems. The only problem left is the boot time is still slower than what it was. Could be something to do with the SSD, but I'm not too sure. At least most of the important problems are fixed now, thanks
  9. Already tried that, sadly didn't make a difference. I also tried switching back to my old RAM, which is Avexir 16GB 1600mhz, and that made no difference either.
  10. Hello, Basically, the problem I am having is that I have had quite a few incidents where I get an error message telling me that there was a failure during the boot. Coincidentally, this started happening a few days after installing new RAM. I have since swapped the RAM back to what I previously had, but it made no difference (yes the RAM was installed correctly). There are also more problems when it does actually boot. It takes longer than usual (booting off an SSD) to boot up and sign in, and it feels a bit laggy overall when I opening things like task manager, as well as when clicking the icon to change the wifi connection. Also, when in the BIOS settings, the cursor is really laggy, Rather than moving fluidly, it skips. I've never had an issue like this before. Does anyone know what the potential problem could be?
  11. I believe this was the problem. I forgot to enable it when I installed the memory. I've just enabled it and my PC seems to be performing as good as it was before. Thanks for your help!
  12. No, I bought them at the same time. Corsair just offers their Vengeance series of ram with different heat sink colours to better match set ups I guess. EDIT: Also, the part code/part name only varies by the last letter. For the RAM with the black heat sink, it is 16GBX3M2A1866C9, and for the blue heat sink, it is 16GBX3M2A1866C9B
  13. On some occasions, it was very slow when logging into my user profile, which usually takes like 1 second, but it took about 20. It also feels slightly more sluggish when opening folders, windows, etc.
