    Your only option would have probably been to return the ram to Amazon and order from corsair, have you tried calling them? i recently purchased a PSU from them and they sent out a k70 keyboard after they setup the whole return/exchange process i told them to just cancel the PSU and refund my money, about 20 minutes later they called back and said keep the keyboard and they refunded my money(which was told to me by members in this forum stating this is what they usually do), all they asked was i take pictures of the keyboard from all sides and it was mine to keep.


    from my understanding they do this a lot, much more than other vendors out there, if you buy it directly from them they make all the profit, when they sell through amazon some of that price goes to amazon and cuts into their profit margin, its partially greed. but most of the time its just how business works these days. thats why its always good to check prices on various sites before purchase. unfortunately pcpartpicker cant cover all sites but it would be good if it did 

  3. most 4.0 dongles come with A2DP i use one to connect with all my headsets 



    i bought this cheap dongle on sale for $3USD and i works for all my wireless headsets(bludio tubine, aukey, skullcandy) as well as controllers, it doesn't say it supports A2DP but that profile has been around for ages so i doubt any manufacturer wouldn't have that in the dongle



    and it was plug and play with windows 10 thankfully , because it didnt say it was even compatible with 10, but for $3 i just decided to buy it.

    which one do you have? I haven't heard of this option 

    you can start here as the prices run from $30-$150



    this is one that i have but bought via aliexpress for $60, the 2gb vs 1g makes a difference as well as the 16gb vs 8gb but i also have the lower end $30 version that works ok for what it is.



    and i also bought one of these just for kicks, it's ok but windows is limited and the screen was unresponsive after upgrade to win 10(forced) took a long time of searching to get it back to stock,

    I know, I am an idiot.  I wanted to install something, read every line of the installer, blocked like 20 programs, and it still let this crap slip.  For those of you who dont know,  this is a supper toxic program you literally can't un install through windows.  It blocks every website that has information on how to uninstall it.  Malwarebytes hasn't caught it and adwcleaner is running now.  Does anyone know where this is installed so I can delete it or something?

    have you tried using a live cd and booting from that to run the antivirus or hirens boot cd to run an AV program?

    Hey there everyone, my name is ArashiG, and this is my first time here actually.


    I was wondering if I could use some help with a future pc build. 


    Here's the build: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/thelonelypandaz/saved/#view=TmV9TW


    The current price for this whole build is $1,546.70, and that's WAY too much. I want a pc that's at least under $1,000, if possible. 


    If you guys can, leave a pc part or build that can be good for gaming, at least 300 fps, and can run those high-spec games (GTA V for example). 


    Thanks! ~Arashi

    you could save $100 since there is no point to water cool your cpu with a non-k, almost $400 for a 970 is a bit too much

    for that price you could get a pre-build like this 



    r9 390's are going for less than $300 on sale with 8gb vram so i would go for that instead

    We would just buy a used PC, however we decided it would be best to just buy the parts over time instead of buying an entire PC all at once. Due to financial reasons.

    gotcha, too bad you dont live out here in hawaii i got some older pc parts i keep telling myself to sell but im too lazy to test them. 

    try watching this site for deals


    and get this chrome extension, you can set the prices you are looking for and it will email you if it gets to that price or lower on amazon since you are going to piece meal the pc, might help save a few dollars.

    Hi LTT!


    My son was recently doing some monkey business around youtube, where my account is signed in and now instead of my name i see a weird nickname. I went to settings, changed the name, saw that my youtube name has changed, but when someone receives an e-mail from me, they see the nickname instead of my name. What did i do wrong ?

    did you clear the nickname in your google?



  9. im not sure on the newer phones but there is a program the will actually reset the counter so you can send it in for warranty, it's on skipsoft.net, when i first starting flashing phones it was one of my main tools for rooting, flashing roms, installing twrp etc. he used to always be on xda developers. you could try and research into his all in one software, i stopped buying samsung cause i just couldnt afford it anymore so idk if the triangle away function works on the newer phones


  10. i wouldn't mind getting the omni either, but it will be ridiculous to ship here. I have so much crap in my house i will probably be sitting down and playing because i have heard people say hanging the cord from the ceiling is not an option, idk why but until mine arrives i wont know for sure. all i need is for some of my fool friends tripping over the cord and wrecking my headset and pc, im sure there will be some instances like with what happened with the wii and its controller. as for now the rift will have to be my choice 

  11. cpu+mb+ram should get you a min of $250 i think, considering this cpu will typically sell for about $200 upwards to $260, you could probably get more. on ebay it usually comes down to who is looking for the part at the time

    the gpu maybe $60-$80

    system as a whole is hard to say, i think it would not be more than what you were to sell for the parts especially since pc prices have come down. i doubt you could get much for the psu but who knows, selling on ebay would probably not be worth the shipping costs.



  12. i have seen a lot of mods like this before on youtube because i have 3 xbox360 that all rrod'd, i started on one but it ended up being too much of a pain to do. you could try it but to put that cpu/mb combo with a cx series is super sketchy, i was planning to do it with a APU/mini-itx build and actually got it almost done the part i didnt like was the cable management and how it looked with the power suppy outside i even tried a mini psu or a 1u that my friend had and it didn't work out. 


    If you feel like trying it out then go for it, though idk about trying to do a gaming pc in that small case, the x360 was famous for the rrod for a reason. if you decide on an htpc that might be a better choice.

    here last test

    could be your video driver, your r9 is better than my gtx 960, amd has put out some glitchy drivers lately, if you are getting good fps on your games i wouldn't put too much merit into the test, it should report the card as a r9 290 rather than as a r9 200, also if you do a search on the forum someone had a 390x and failed

    i am planning to buy one anyway even though my specs don't meet the "minimum" requirement and if i have to upgrade i will do it at that time. i dont care what the test says. What i dont agree with is that from what i have been reading some games will actually scan your card to see if you meet the specs and actually won't let you run then which to me is full BS and way to sell more hardware. My opinion

    Looking to buy a 980 Ti for my new gaming pc.

    Probably going with an EVGA 980 Ti ACX 2.0 with backplate ($650)

    I was going to buy on Newegg then noticed its about $50 tax.

    I checked on Amazon and it's the same thing so I googled it.

    And there's a $640 one from B&H with free shipping no tax.

    Is this store legit?


    i have bought a few things from b&h, so they are legit, have you checked jet.com. you get 15% off if its your first order, and they had a msi980ti for $585 before the discount(which is maxed at $30 unfortunately) and the evga one is $659 before the discount. unfortunately they dont ship to hawaii which i found out when i was going to buy a r9 390x for $305, but maybe they might ship to where you are and as far as i know they are legit with a lot of reviews, good and bad on google

    Can you build a pc that install Android operation and make it as a TV box?


    - Insert 'but why?' meme - because i want a little bit more performance for playing android game on 4k tv "


    If you can install it , how the driver work? do you even need a driver? for network and sound drive on the mobo?


    Do the android operation utilize the desktop cpu well enough? like cpu threads


    how about the driver for the IGPU do we need it? and i don't think we need a separate gpu to run 4k android game if the igpu are good enough.


    Thanks for reading , Giving info sauce to help my research

    why not just run bluestacks or any other android emulator, or just buy an android tv box for about $50-$80, or like the other poster said remix OS

    as far as the gpu i doubt you need much some of these boxes can dual boot windows and they are running low end specs

    i have 2 low end machines one is an a8-6500 with a gtx750ti, and a i5-2500 with a gts 450 eventually i want to piece together a emulation/vr gaming rig, doubt i'll ever get there but never hurts to dream(and beg , lol) ,my current system is not any better but its a piece meal used parts system so for the price im satisfied with it. but whoever wins this will be pretty stoked.

    here my


    CPU: i53450

    GPU: HIS R9 290 current 1000Mhz/1300

    RAM: 8Gb Kingstone

    Score: What the just 0.1


    my answer is Whats Wrong with my System, am i doing wrong , first install steam vr and get this score :o im shock :( 


    actually, i guess your shock is from the fact it scored so low, since it said your gpu needed to be upgraded, and your card actually meets the minumum requirements for vr.



    previously my other system was a i5-2500, gtx 960, 4x2gb , so in terms of specs is much lower but i had no drop frames and was at the upper part of capable, there was something in you system that must have been running in the background e.g antivirus, etc. check your task manager and make sure nothing is in the background when you do the test.


    hard to believe a r9 290 would score that low, there must be something going on in the background

    How is Thermaltake with rebates? Because that Toughpower 750w is a straight-up ridiculour deal.

    i personally don't like rebates, since some companies claim they never got it, but i usually go online and do online processing first then mail in the requirements after. this would be the online site for the rebate




    i just wish newegg would do follow ups especially since these are newegg specific deals, but my friend said they just say the buyer has to contact the vendor when there were problems with his rebates.
