  1. https://glitched.africa/news/epic-games-store-spying/ was the issue I was referring to and since it wasn't denied that the code was intrusive and just explained that it was Tim's fault is basically just them putting out a fire in my eyes and don't fully trust it yet. There's also the matter of people that have been banned for simply either using VPN software or just having it open but de-activated while in fortnite. Not really keen on being forced to not use a VPN.
  2. with all the issues with Epic games I do not want them to stick around, I don't feel like I can trust them and do not want them to one day own some sort of exclusive that I really want.
  3. Welp, I set up steam big picture (for couch gaming) as well as Kodi to launch through Big picture so that I can be in bed and play games or watch movies / series / channels all with one controller so I have my controller connected at all times as well as my KB & mouse. aside from those I sometimes plug in a few extra controllers for games that support single pc co-op / vs
  4. does the windows store think you're on mobile? coz wtf is that at the bottom right of the screen???
  5. have you disassembled the entire thing and put it back together? including removing the cpu from its socket? if that doesn't work you most likely shorted your board.
  6. League is simpler to play than dota since with Dota you can kill your own minions to deny the enemy the kill and a bunch of other tactical things where you need precise ping to ever compete. I like League a lot more because it isn't as bad with high ping as Dota and I prefer the simpler play style. don't get me wrong it's not "easier to be the best at it" it's just less annoying and sometimes unfair to higher ping players kind of gameplay.
  7. I had a 29" ultrawide 2560 x 1080 Monitor and loved it more than this 4k thing I have now, I only lost it because of poor handling on our way to a major LAN about 200 km from where I live. a friend of mine put his monitor on top of mine and it damaged the LCD. got this 4k screen for free and selling it wouldn't give me enough money in South Africa to replace the 29" I agree that 27" Screens are horrible at 1080p but 29" Screens do not have the height of 27" screens so the DPI is quite a load better.
  8. it's fine, it's just two "backplates" touching. it's not like either of them have direct contact with one another, only with the metal plating around them.
  9. yep, I also seldom have isopropyl alcohol with me, so I just clean it off with a cloth or paper towel until it's clean as I can get it.
  10. well 280 bucks here in RSA costs a lot more than just that. I'm not american. I just do the basic encoding etc. on my SSD and send them over to my harddrives after my daily work is finished so it's no real inconvenience.
  11. solid build bro. Upgrade the GPU when you start noticing your gaming experience deteriorates. Get a 4TB HDD once and don't look back. I thought 2 TB would be enough for me when I bought my first one back in 2010.. I'm at 6 already and still need storage. (bare in mind I do a lot of editing etc. Still a 2 TB is filled with games.)
  12. It'll be a great update, however even a 2060 would be fine if you have the cash for a 2070 it is great
  13. can you borrow a PSU from anyone just to test it out? if it is the PSU your problem should disappear then right? I have a PSU I've been using almost non stop since 2012 / 2011 maybe can't recall. and mine is a much crappier brand than Corsair. But if dust was a lot and the PSU was sitting idle. it might have made a capacitor too hot and it popped. easy to replace for someone like me, not something I'd recommend to someone inexperienced with PSU's & soldering though. Best bet is to try and borrow a PSU from someone. if the problem persists it's likely the Motherboard. One thing I'd recommend doing before going through all this trouble in the first place is just reseating the CPU cooler since it might not make good enough contact with the CPU and that is throttling the CPU and eventually shutting it down.
