  1. I don't need to, the lighting is good enough that the color camera can still grab details without the help of the higher res b+w camera. There is no difference.
  2. I think you need cpu-z? Not sure if XTU counts?
  3. You need to have cpu-z in the screenshots m8
  4. It's because when you block the b/w lens it composites nothing with the other image. The one you took with both uncovered looks the same because you have good enough lighting that the single lens can get the details by itself.
  5. I believe you made a good choice. The kit lenses aren't great for much. Primes are good as they are made to be really good at one focal length where a zoom needs to be acceptable at many.

    What's the Deal with the Anti-MSI Circlejerk?

    I have an MSI workstation board with the C236 chipset. For what I paid, it's solid feature-wise and isn't gaudy. Black pcb, one of the vrm heatsinks says "workstation" on it. I haven't had any problems in 2+ years with it.

    How fast is the LTT member's internet connection?

    Here at [Redacted] State University, I get great speeds!

    Intel 4 gen. vs 8 gen.

    If you were to upgrade, you should wait until 9th gen. I believe (I may be wrong) that gen will have in-silicon spectre and meltdown mitigations.
  9. New school, new laptop. Here's my XPS 13 (2018)
  10. That stock heat sink was a pain to get on. I'd rather not do that again. I should unplug something important...
  11. I would, but my brother won't let me try again because "I might break something" I built that computer for him.
  12. No special windows version. It just said it won't work and I can look in the windows app store thing to find something else.
  13. I know I don't have CPU-Z in the screenshot but Windows complained it "wasn't supported" or some other bull. Will task manager suffice? It's an un-overclocked Ryzen 5 1400 in my brother's computer.

    What resolution should i be using?

    You should either scale it up or use the highest resolution image you can find.
