    KenjiUmino reacted to Princess Luna in Noctua NH-D15 - cold heatsink?   
    50Cº on stressing is a desirable temperature every thing seems to be functioning well, the heatsink being cold is a god signal if it was hot that'd mean the CPU was on 100Cº and then you'd have an actual issue.

    oh shit ... so miners added harddrives to their list now. ok ... i guess that means no harddrives for gamers in 2018.

    yeah - you don't see a lot of interesting colors on cars over here. some colored cars here and there but the most popular car colors are black, white and silver-ish.

    yeah ... and when the gamers are gone and the mining bubble finally imploded they have no one left to sell to and it will be then that they realize what they have done.

    KenjiUmino got a reaction from NowThatsDamp in Kinda a shits and giggles type thing   
    then why don't you do it? there's no excuse not to start right now. any smartphone that isn't a full-on potato can do good enough video to get started. editing software can be had for free (i use shotcut because it is free and multiplatform and all that). some cheap lights may be a good idea.
     
    it's your ideas that matter most. the equippment comes second.

    except when the power strip you are using can't even handle 10A - then the breaker will not trip but you might smell something burning after a while. totally happened to me once.

    KenjiUmino reacted to Paul Vreeland in How to remote control to PCs over LAN without using RDP   
    VNC is a popular Go-to app, but beware of the security implications of running unencrypted VNC.  There are ways to encrypt VNC.
     
    RDP is much better on supported OS due to native UI handling, it feels snappier.

    KenjiUmino got a reaction from Crunchy Dragon in Cheap 650 ?   
    game what? last years games at lowest settings? 40€ is not that bad for this card but don't expect much. even a GT 1030 is running circles around it.

    KenjiUmino got a reaction from Crunchy Dragon in 771 xeon does not boot OS   
    771 was a server socket - so it might be hard to find non-xeon CPUs for it.
     
    the only 771 CPU mentioned on wikipedia that is not a xeon is the Core 2 Extreme QX9775.
     
    i'd say that is a myth. why exactly should they not? i have not noticed a difference - that is - if it's at the same architecture and clock speed

    KenjiUmino got a reaction from Ryan_Vickers in Recommend me Speaker and Headphone for Sound BlasterX AE-5   
    32bit by 384hz - that is the resolution of the DAC and 122db is the dynamic range
     
    i say you will need some pretty high end speakers and golden ears to hear a difference between this and a similar quality 24bit 192kHz soundcard.
     
    there are other facrots that are way more important than bits and kilohertz to make a soundcard sound good or bad - distortion and noise ratio for example.

    KenjiUmino reacted to GilmourD in XLR mic issue   
    By "plugged into my MOBO directly" you mean into the microphone in on your integrated sound?

    Yeah... No.
     
    XLR microphones are balanced low-impedance devices. The microphone in on the board is expecting an unbalanced high-impedance signal. Hence your noise and volume issues.
     
    If you want to use an XLR mic you need an audio interface with microphone preamps. There's lots of them out there that connect to USB, Firewire, and Thunderbolt. The USB ones are relatively inexpensive compared to the other interface types and, honestly, it would take a whole lot of simultaneous channel inputs to saturate even USB 2.0 with audio.
     
    The one I use for all my audio recording (guitar, bass, and vocals for music as well as for my radio show) is the Behringer U-Phoria UMC404HD. It has four XLR inputs. I have a feeling that might be overkill for you, though. I also have the UMC202HD for my on-the-run setup.
     
    Search for UMC202HD using the LTT Amazon link (wherever the heck that thread is) and you'll find it for $59.99. Or you can buy it straight from Behringer, too, off their website, or Adorama, or a whole bunch of other sites.

    also a classic: an update that sits at 35% all night and has not gained a single % when you come back to it next morning. but don't even THINK of pushing that reset button.

    i wish. ever seen this happen in an endless loop ? do updates, fail, restart, revert updates, restart, do updates, fail, restart, revert updates, restart...
     
    my ratio is that i had more trouble with windows upates (among other things) than i had with linux package dependencies.
     
    programs from the built in software manager or default repositories always installed right away without trouble.

    KenjiUmino got a reaction from paddy-stone in Internet not working anywhere near rated speed?   
    did you run a speedtest? downloading games depends on a lot of factors. it could be a bandwidth limit from the download server, busy download servers and whatnot.
     
    also keep in mind that download clients may show megaBYTES per second instead of megaBITS per second (5 megabytes = 40 megabits)
     
    steam can be switched between one and the other

    eithter way - i kinda like it. colored cases in general ... it is not done that often ... bitfenix and lian li are pretty much the only case manufacturers coming to my mind when i think about colored cases.
     
    would be amazing if we could get monitors with colored bezels and keyboards , mice, speakers and everything in matching colors to go with it. also ... i want mainboards with colored PCIe and RAM slots back. (i know black & red is still a thing but what about green, orange, blue .....)
