  1. At the moment I have my Corsair H100i V2 at the front of my case blowing hot air in to the case and for the most part it is fine but last summer my GPUs were thermal throttling. The main reason I located the radiator at the front was because the PC sits under my desk and I was concerned that it would blow hot air at me if I put the radiator at the top as an exhaust. Is it worth moving the radiator to the top and using it as an exhaust and if so do you think the hot air coming out would be an issue especially on hot days?
  2. Ahh that makes a lot of sense, thanks for clearing that up!
  3. When I download through the Microsoft store (say Forza updates) I get around 60-70mbps whereas on steam and chrome I barely ever go above 7mbps. Why is this the case?

    1 Graphics Card 2 PCs

    Correct me if I am wrong but the best way to do it would be to get an external thunderbolt 3 GPU enclosure and then just plug the thunderbolt 3 into what ever device you need to use, granted you may need to get a thunderbolt 3 card for your PC
  5. Get open hardware monitor and check the temperatures as it happens. Best case would be that something needs new thermal paste

    Super low fps in cs go.

    As suggested, you should clean the cooler and re-apply thermal compound as those temps are not normal and will damage your CPU in the long term. If you have the spare cash maybe upgrade the cooler and get a hyper 212 evo as that cooler worked well on an overclocked i7 4790k so should have no problem with your CPU.
  7. Are you using a fan hub by chance? I had a thermaltake fan hub and the fans stayed at max rpm so I had to swap it for splitters. Not really sure what else you can try if this isn't the case.
  8. I have an Acer Predator XB271HU and the audio through the speakers is as you would expect but when I plug my headphones into the built in 3.5mm audio jack there is a constant white noise (like static) in the background, even if there is no audio or video input. Is there a way to reduce this?

    Power Watch 2 vs Gear S3

    I currently have a Samsung Gear S3 Frontier and it is a great watch and all but it is the worst at tracking my cycling. I have read a lot about the new Matrix Power Watch 2 and it seems really compelling and appears to be more geared towards exercise unlike the Samsung Gear. I really like my Samsung from an ascetic point of view but other than that is is pretty crap when you compare it to an Apple Watch or other high end smart watches. What would you go for if you had the choice, Samsung Gear/Galaxy watch or the Matrix PowerWatch 2?
  10. Alright thanks. It is still under warranty so I will do that if it comes to it
  11. Over the weekend I started up my PC and it was stuck on the bios screen for a while and I turned it off as I could tell something was off. I then attempted to boot again and it said there was no boot drive. I still have windows on my 2TB HDD so I booted from that and I could access my files so I was able to back everything up and I attempted to repair the bootloader on the SSD through CMD but it did not work. I have since formatted the drive and reinstalled Windows but what caused this to happen? Should I RMA my SSD or was it a one time thing?
  12. I noticed a lot of storage was being use up so I decided to investigate and well, this is what I saw...

    With the corsair RGB fans you need the included RGB hub which then connects to the Lighting Node Pro.

    What do I need for Corsair RGB fans?

    I have the HD fans (basically the same) and I have them connected to the fan hub and have that connected to the lighting node pro which is then connected to a USB2 header. It is a nightmare for cable management but the end result is stunning. Also the corsair LED strips are really good. If you need more info DM me as it is a bit confusing at first.

    Right side of monitor is more blue

    Probably, it is only really noticeable on white pages such as word documents but in games and other things there is not visible so I will probably leave it.
