  1. Had that case before. Can confirm it's the speed of the light effect. Each fan has two cables: 1 for RGB controls 1 PWM cable for the power The RGB cables are plugged into a HUB at the back of the case, and the top controller is plugged in the HUB The power cable are plugged in the FAN headers on the motherboard. Speed of the fan is controlled with this cable, so it's the motherboard that handles it.
  2. Inkscape and GIMP for good free alternatives
  3. Yeah I had the same case before. That was what I feared the most when working inside the case. That case is a "build it, then don't touch it". I changed for a Cosmos C700P. The tempered glass side panel is on a hinge and is easily removable, no screws and no chance of it dropping on the floor. I changed for two reasons: lack of space inside and the hassle of the side / front / top panel blocking the airflow inside the case.
  4. I have a i7 7700hq + gtx1060 laptop and it's running games like beat saber, boxVR, work simulator pretty good. Tried American truck simulator and it was running smoothly. My only advise is for you to check which headset the game is compatible with. Wanted to try Dirt 4, not VR compatible. Dirt Rally? Rift only. They are listed on the steam page on the right. VR games are really niche. Made by small developers mostly for a small amount of people. I don't think it's going to die, but the technology isn't there yet. I guess in about 10 years it's going to be awesome or dead hahahahahah My point is: VR is for enthusiast. For me, the selling point was Beat Saber. For you, it could be something else. My only recommendation is: don't buy it unless you tried it. Try it first and see how you like it. there are gaming conventions organized pretty much everywhere now that showcase them. Go try one and then decide if you want to buy one or not.
  5. Some desktop case don't have usb 2.0 anymore. Just bought a cooler master cosmos c700P and it has 4xUSB3.0 and 1xtypeC. My motherboard (asus z270-e) only has one USB 3.0 internal port On a side note, anyone noticed how much less USB intel boards have compared to AMD???
  6. Keeping it on my desk because dust on the floor and RGB glory
  7. Tested home connection vs PIA. I'm in Quebec, Canada connecting to a PIA server in Washington DC. With VPN: without VPN and using same server for speedtest: I am paying for 150down, 50up but I receive 150/150 normally, with some fluctuation ^^. I also want to add that the server picked by Speedtest was chosen automatically during the VPN test and it's 1000km away from my home. For a VPN connection, not that bad I leave it on all the time and completely forget about it, even while gaming.
  8. Yeah I really want to but I lack the money to do so I live near montreal so it's a lot easier for me ^^" There's also Lan ETS montreal so I am able to go to two lan parties per year
  9. World's Fastest Internet - 1.6 TERABITS per Second Is it only me or this video should have been called somehting else? like something something "dreamhack walkthrough". Mainly because they also talk about the rest of the setup there. BTW I'm part of the volunteer crew for Dreamhack montreal and it's always awesome to be a part of an event on this scale
  10. the show has already been filmed. They are editing it completely and will release it once it is done. I remember they mentioned it during a wan show or something....
  11. in the recording devices: But like @Ryan_Vickers said, you will hear yourself back.
  12. Voicemeeter banana can do that for you. Takes multiple input sources and gives you the ability to route them to whichever output you want, AKA discord. You can even control the volume independently https://www.vb-audio.com/Voicemeeter/banana.htm I use this for streaming on twitch, got my games, discord, music and microphone on different input sources so it's easier to control the balance between them. I also have 3 sound outputs (headset, LED audio controller, Speaker) and the two virtual outputs for discord and stream.
  13. you might want to check with the power efficiency of your future power supply. I know it's more expensive but more efficient power supplies will waste less power running your rig. Same thing with bigger power supplies. I tend to buy a power supply twice the wattage of my build because most PSUs will hit peak performance at about half load. They will also most likely stay cool enough to not have the fan turning. According to pcpart picker, with your current build you'd need about 214W (that's without counting drives, fans and other random crap). So with 500W power supply you should be fine. If you can spend the extra money, I'd suggest a 600W to leave some headroom for a more powerfull GPU in the future.
