  1. Yeah, 2 years is definitely enough to kill a battery, Most Li-ion batteries have a common life cycle of 400 - 600 cycles (Full charge/discharge) and then they start to lose capacity. Most modern chargers aren't designed to handle the full power load of a laptop without a battery (Unless it has desktop grade components). I would recommend; New Battery - Full capacity and the ability to supply the laptop with the current it requires. Windows and Linux support generating a report on current battery capacity vs design spec(Search "How to check laptop battery health/capacity"). New Charger - Non-original chargers are common for falling short on the amperes which can affect performance (CPU/GPU Utilisation and Charging speed.). Other things to try would be checking your power plan options and cooling. Dust build up can result in thermal throttling and reduced performance. Best of luck fixing your problem any questions just ask.
  2. Asus X99 Deluxe II - PEICE OF $hi%

    Yeah, finding a good motherboard manufacturer these days is difficult. My original MSI X79-GD65 8D blew up, did windows update restarted and the VRM area of the board had blown caps and MOSFETs everywhere. Called MSI sent it off got a replacement and that replacement isn't 100% onboard SATA controller dies randomly about twice a week. (PCIe SATA controllers ftw) Been looking at buying an old X79 board but the prices are through the roof (£700 for an Asus X79 WTF?!). Going to buy a generic intel board and put that platform in my home server and then my next build will be on the Ryzen platform. Either going to ASRock or Gigabyte next build.
  3. Just download the dedicated Virtualbox image from the kali website...
  4. Good Free 8k Video Player?

    I would recommend K-Light Codec pack! Would help out a bunch. Use either Media Player Classic (included and configured with K-Lite) or any media player of your choice. Other things to keep in mind, make sure that hardware acceleration is enabled in the settings of your media player. VLC does also support GPU acceleration if you were wondering.
  5. Can a Pentium run a plex server?

    You need to remember that Direct Play by Plex does not require transcoding (Most common for Smart TV's and Mobile Devices). My dual core server idles at 2% usage when streaming Planet Earth II @ 4K to my PC. You should look into if you are going to use Direct Play. More Info on Direct Play: Direct Play and Direct Stream
  6. Modded SLI! A budget builders last resort?

    This is the thing I hate with people these days, no one really wants to get into modding or tweaking their gear. People just except if it doesn't work or isn't supported then it stays like that, no one will go out of their way to try and fix something or mod something too work. Of course modding SLI is going to have difficulties but it makes me happy that at least people are trying to get things to work or having fun with modding PC parts.
  7. Modded SLI! A budget builders last resort?

    Without a doubt due to it not being natively support but if you got two cards that worked without many problems it would be amazing for a budget builder. Really tempted in buying some old cards and trying this out...
  8. Modded SLI! A budget builders last resort?

    This forum :facepalm: I'm talking about MODDED SLI
  9. Modded SLI! A budget builders last resort?

    Nope I'm talking about SLI
  10. So i came across a page saying you can use different cards in SLI and i was wondering has anyone in this forum done it ? I'm very curious on what will happen and if Slick or Linus would ever do on a video about it (with a massive disclaimer of course) Different SLI [AUTO] - SLI for different cards Someone Inform me if this would be worth it with a GTX 780 Ti and GTX 780. If in all I would like to here some opinions on the subject. Personally i think its pretty cool that this is thing that the community have made and could really help for budget builders want to SLI
  11. Why are movies and music videos always in 24-30 fps?

    Probably because there is no need for it, maybe you will find the odd small artist doing it with a unique music video but really they are just left at 24 or 29.97 fps because their just streamed on MTV or a music channel. Most likely due to the extra storage used would not be needed.
  12. Is my GPU dying ?

    Issue Fixed 05/08/16 Used device manager and disabled and re-enabled my GPU (FPS restored to norm) EDIT Turns out my 650 Ti was running in PCIe x1.1 according to GPU-Z Disabling and Enabling allowed a x3.0 connection
  13. Is my GPU dying ?

    I hope its not my PSU and I doubt it will be but i will investigate this with my other gpu and see what happens thanks for the response. My GPU stays in the high 50s and low 60's on BF3 on a summers day so I doubt heat is an issue. 1. Thank you, fixed 2.I will look into the problem by swapping my GPU
  14. Is my GPU dying ?

    When I'm playing games randomly my fps drops into the 10-20 range, sometimes this can happen often other times not at all. But the FPS is restored if i boost my GPU voltage up. i am wondering what the error my be...
  15. AMD Polaris Giveaway

    This is my slim chance of getting an upgrade for BF1 Currently running a GTX 650 Ti on my X79 setup due to my 680 dying last year. This 650 makes me cry when on BF3 / Bf4 ;(
