  1. you want to be wary of condensation, but as long as you manage that you should be good
  2. the one that linus uses from time to time is the guts of an old ac. but is going to be cheaper, less complex and more reliable to just set up individual waterloops and just install an aircondition inthe room.
  3. what you can do to help thermals is get a nice and high quality thermal paste and cut some slots in he plastic of the underside clamshell before putting it on a ventilated stand. Did that to my buddies laptop and shaved like 8 degrees or so off. but thats about it
  4. use quotes when answering, so ppl get a notification. the problem is not the cpu or the powerdelivery, it is the anemic cooler that is supposed to diccipate 45 watts f heat with probably two long heatpipes and a heatsink the size of three potatochips, and the fan is a practical joke. according to intel the 8750h has a Tjunction of 100°C. This is the maximum temp the chip can run at before it will shut off to prevent damage. So when your chip is pegged at 95° or smth it is trying its hardest not to blow up, the temp curve is set very aggresive but hp probably thinks it will last at least until their warranty is over. This is a typical problem of modern laptop manufacturers trying to tick all the boxes and chasing the specsheet. Apple did it aswell. Everyone just wants more cores aand higher clocks in their laptops without stopping to think if they can actually cool the darn thing.
  5. what are temps at idle? but most likely it is just gonna run this hot. thats what happens when you stick a 8750h and a 1070 in a 15'" laptop, no amount of undervolting is gonna get you an adequate cooling solution in that formfactor. Your best bet probably is either takking a dremel to the underside of the plastic clamshell and stick it on one of those ventilated stands or sell it and get somethin less crammed or smth thicc. Or you know, get a desktop and slap a nh12 on that bad boi.
  6. the king of ghettorigs approves. Question tho: how accurate is your temp-probe and can you calibrate for specific holding temps?
  7. thx, i will look into them
  8. I've been out of the loop on mesh wifi systems for the longest time, but I am looking to finally outfit my house with a good wifi setup. I've been lookin at diferent options but i am having trouble differentiating real specs from marketing bs. Can yall give me some pointers on what to look out for. I need to span four floors and the bottom two are super crowded on 2.4ghz. Ive got cat5e running to every floor. Also I need the network to be able to handle at least 4 clients simultaneously.
  9. I personally run dt990 pros, modmic4 into a cheap behringer mixer. Works like a charm. For listening to music on the go I use Plantronics backbeat pro 2. Those have nice anc and sound very good for the price. I would recommend getting a decent pair of headphones and adding a mic after the fact, since there is no single headset that has good microphone
  10. i recommmend a desktop aswell, its gonna be hard to find a laptop with that kind of power for 1800usd for example, the zbook 15 g6 runs over 3000usd
  11. look in here :https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_S.M.A.R.T._tools ive use crystaldiskinfo in the past areyou sure that it is ur ssd making that noise? they dont have any moving parts
  12. i guess you cant captcha them all . . . . XD also it si kinda sad that you probably have to filter pm's now, please let us control the amount of filtering at least
