    Create shortcut to printer preferences Win10

    Cheers, I'm already aware of these. Was looking for a solution for going straight into the printer preferences menu. Thank you though, Ryan
  2. Hey, I am doing some work for a less technically able client and going through Win10 menus to access printer preferences is hard for them to learn/remember. I was wondering if I could create a shortcut/script to open it upon a single click. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Ryan

    Large Home Network Upgrade Help/Guidance

    I'm running cabled to get the best performance. I have UK FTTC so about 30Mbps.
  4. In my current household live 5 occupants (including myself), with a vast amount of devices connected to the network via both cabled and wireless. Each occupant has a desktop computer (cabled), a laptop, smartphone, and tablet. Alongside multiple Smart TVs, NASs and a CCTV security system that syncs data to the cloud. Subsequently, this causes a substantial amount of traffic at any given time. My issue is that when I attempt to play an online game my ping fluctuates greatly making it almost unplayable, allowing me to only play when nobody else is there. I currently have a Netgear 24 port switch looking after cameras and desktops as well as a router with both 5GHz and 2.5GHz bands acting as an access point for the wireless connections (the fibre input line is badly positioned). We are also using the ISP issued router, which I'm thinking may be the source of the problem. I'm trying to find a way to improve my network so that I can play without issues whilst others can still continue to carry out their tasks with little to no notice of a change. Any help would be greatly appreciated, Ryan
  5. I've been looking at this C4 and it looks amazing and is basically exactly what I want. Any ideas whether it's even going to be made? Can only see posts from late 2017...
  6. Ah, I remember now. I've looked at this before but it's extortionate and out of stock. Does anyone know of any cases that are similar? I own the Node 202 but want something shorter and wider than will let me watercool.
  7. Edit: Dan 4. I've looked at this before but it's extortionate and out of stock. Does anyone know of any cases that are similar? I own the Node 202 but want something shorter and wider than will let me watercool. Can anyone tell me what the cases are here? Especially the one marked in red. Cheers
  8. Hey, I'm trying to host a database on my server and wish for a web interface to display the database as well as allow editing to the database. I also wish to be able to query the database through API requests. I've seen certain CMS's that allow for this sort of functionality but not for databases and I'm trying to refrain from writing the majority of the web interface myself. The end goal is to be able to edit the database through both the web interface and through an app using an API. Cheers, Ryan
  9. Hey, I'm trying to find a user-friendly web interface that would allow me to create and edit a database as well as being able to query the database through an API request. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Ryan
  10. Hey, My current Surface Pro is too large for the university lecture desks (due to the tablet stand) and therefore I am planning on selling it to my father and purchasing a laptop. I have a decent gaming rig in my room and don't want to spend a fortune on a laptop but I need one for my course. I was thinking of getting an older Thinkpad and possibly installing an SSD. I don't really want to spend over £500 altogether, any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Ryan
  11. Hey, As the title states, I am looking for a CPU Cooler that will fit into my Node 202 and be able to handle an i7-8700K. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Ryan

    M.2 upgrade suggestions

    Hey, I currently have a Samsung 850 Evo 500GB, I have the chance to switch it for a Crucial MX500 500GB M.2. I'm finding conflicting reviews on performance, is it worth the switch? Samsung 850 Evo 500GB - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-inch-Solid-State-Drive/dp/B00P73B1E4 Crucial MX500 500GB M.2 - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Crucial-MX500-CT500MX500SSD4-Internal-2280SS/dp/B077SQ8J1V/ref=sr_1_11?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1536178892&sr=1-11&keywords=ssd%2B500&th=1
  13. Don't suppose you can offer me any cheaper alternatives?
  14. Hey, I'm heading off to university and wish to move my current rig towards a Mini-ITX form factor. I have found all my components bar my motherboard, I wish to use an i7-8700K which has an LGA1151 socket. As I'm purchasing the overclockable processor I wanted a motherboard that would aid me in this and utilise my 3200mhz RAM. I'm struggling to find a board and any help would be greatly appreciated, Ryth
  15. Hey, I want to build a Mini-ITX for university this year, I'm trying to find a case that allows me to have a full-size GPU and a proper water cooled CPU cooler. I am also trying to avoid any large boxy cases. Any help would be greatly appreciated, Cheers, Ryth
