  1. Yeah I'd just go pre-built, especially if you have never built before. Troubleshooting your own PC for why it won't boot is one thing, but troubleshooting 5 office PC's that employees need to do their job with zero experience is a whole other thing. One thing I'd suggest trying first, maybe try replacing the hard drives in one of the current PC's with an SSD. SSDs can really breathe new life into old hardware, especially if the current hard drives are 10+ years old. You could do 5 PC's for less than $200 easily, and then add some RAM. Also could be more hassle than it's worth. One thing to look out for... if these PC's are really that old make sure any old software is A) Compatible with a newer OS and B) Is compatible with newer hardware.
  2. Shut it down Unplug it from power Open it up Remove the CMOS battery and let it sit for a few minutes Put the CMOS battery back in Should be good to go. If it didn't reset then pull the battery again and let it sit overnight.
  3. I have the same exact GPU. 75c is perfectly normal, and you shouldn't be worrying about it unless it hits 85-90+. Mine sits just shy of 80c during games and it is silent. The FTW3 is EVGA's top of the line model and they definitely do not make it with the hopes of consumers killing it. Put your fans on the standard or silent profile and let it be, Precision X doesn't need to be open, they will kick on when needed.
  4. Kershaw Skyline Stonewash Kershaw Leek Blackwash Kershaw Lonerock fixed blade w/ gut hook (Not really a "pocket" knife) I've been carrying my Skyline daily for 5 or 6 years. Never had an issue with anyone over it, but 2/3 people carry a knife of some kind where I live. Just know when to leave it in the car if going somewhere that might have security.
  5. I've heard good things about the Arctic coolers. They're not the prettiest but they seem to cool very well. Not sure what one you'll need for your card. Link
  6. Sounds like it's just held in with plastic pins/tabs and you just have to rip it off. https://community.thermaltake.com/index.php?/topic/53128-the-tower-900/
  7. Why do you think that the fan is dying?
  8. Everything looks fine. You're going to want to grab an SSD for a boot drive though.
  9. If you're fine with spending the money, I'd just grab a NH-D15 or a Dark Rock Pro 4. Sure, they're super overkill but you'll likely never have to buy another cooler again. When you upgrade in a few years you will be able to bring your cooler with you. However, if you plan on moving to a SFF case in the future you may want to look at other options.
  10. MSI, PNY, ASUS, ZOTAC, EVGA, and GIGABYTE all make blower variants of both 10 and 20 series cards
  11. And a headphone jack. (In reference to note 10)
  12. Non-anti glare (glossy): Pros: - Looks sharper & more premium IMO Cons: - Shows fingerprints and smudges much easier - Glare of lights and sunlight, would be frustrating in an office or school environment - Forced to look at yourself and contemplate why you are wasting your life away during loading screens for games and videos.
  13. You could probably get $150 for the 2600k build. They are very strong overclockers. Source: Just paid $120(including shipping) for a 2600k and mobo. No Ram.
  14. If you have negative air pressure with no top fan the filter will minimize any dust from being brought in through that opening. Also it just stops dust from getting in through the top when the computer isn't in use or while dusting off the top of the case.
  15. I have a PiHole set up in a VM on my home server using DietPi. PiHole works perfect for every device on my network, wired or wireless, except my s8+. When setting my DNS I just receive a "This network may not have internet access" error, and I cannot connect to any websites. I have tried changing my DNS through the Android settings and with an app. Neither seem to work. Does anyone know why this may be happening? I am fairly knowledgeable with networking but I can't seem to figure this one out. This seems to be a common issue with no fixes: https://discourse.pi-hole.net/t/pi-hole-works-everywhere-except-android-phones/3428/95 https://www.reddit.com/r/pihole/comments/8o4iu1/samsung_s8_cant_connect_to_internet_when_using/
