    Can Sennheiser HD 4.40BT be used to play games on PC

    Yeah the microphone input is not used when the aux cable is plugged in. What you COULD do, however, is get one of these... https://www.amazon.ca/Geekria-Replacement-Skullcandy-Headphones-Microphone/dp/B06Y4XNK8L/ref=asc_df_B06Y4XNK8L/?tag=googleshopc0c-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=292991875355&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=16687005210314004045&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9001313&hvtargid=pla-466860114891&psc=1 then get one of these https://www.gearbest.com/headphone-accessories/pp_1065964.html?wid=1433363&currency=CAD&vip=4453483&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIq8y5hbmD4AIVYh6tBh3LqgA2EAQYASABEgJfvfD_BwE and plug both ends into their respective ports on the computer. Or just use bluetooth. But bluetooth does have a tiny bit of audio lag.
  2. Really? You're going to think it's a faulty motherboard before you even have everything plugged in correctly???? Seriously, buy an adapter. They're 5 bucks. In 2 days it'll be there... bam done.Or go to your local computer store, they probably have one.

    Downloaded a virus or something of the sort.

    Ok, I was going to be nice. "Saving" youtube videos is piracy.

    Downloaded a virus or something of the sort.

    You may want to delete that second part because it's technically piracy and the mods will lock the thread.
  5. I've been holding things for a long time, pretty sure I know how to hold things.

    Downloaded a virus or something of the sort.

    You could try resetting to a previous restore state. What.... exactly were you downloading? I'm interested. Seriously.
  7. Disagree. I personally find it hard to hold "high screen to body ratio" phones without accidentally hitting the touch screen with my fingers/thumb over the edge of the phone. I literally WANT bezels.
  8. Buy an adapter. https://www.amazon.ca/StarTech-com-EPS48ADAP-6-Inch-4-Pin-Adapter/dp/B002O21XHQ
  9. Your motherboard's manual says nothing about allowing you to use a 4 pin instead of an 8 pin. I'd get an adapter or a new PSU.
  10. No. It's a false marketing technique to get people to "want" new phones. I'd be perfectly happy with an iPhone 5s/5c/6 with updated hardware

    Softwares for checking performance

    What kind of performance? Graphics performance? CPU performance? Overall Performance? If you're checking for gaming: -Unigine Heaven or Valley or Superposition -3d Mark Time Spy etc. If you're checking for CPU only: Cinebench Userbenchmark Passmark If you just want to know temps and fan speeds and general info: CPU-z GPU-z HwInfo If you want a combination of GPU overclocking + stats MSI Afterburner

    will lowering my fan rpms allow a higher overclock?

    Short answer: No. Long answer: Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo. The fan bullcrap was just marketing stuff. Why not just use a fan curve.... like sane people do....

    First pc build. OS possibilities?

    Depends. New intel processors don't support windows 7 and likely won't boot. You're definitely going to want to do a fresh install anyway.

    Good budget wireless headphones

    https://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-RS-160-Wireless-Headphones/dp/B002SOU2Y0?keywords=RS+160&qid=1547702436&sr=8-1&ref=sr_1_1 Or any of the newer derivatives. I bought these a really long time ago and they still work great. They use AAA batteries which were perfect for me because I have a nice battery charger, but you can also just plug them in (they provide a y splitter cord) and they'll charge themselves. They came with eneloops when I bought them. They're RF, not bluetooth (good for audio latency), however if you use a 2.4 GHz wireless network you may want to keep the router away. Mine work fine 20 feet away through a wall, despite the router being directly next to the transmitter. Fun note: You can use these in COMPLETE wireless mode because the transmitter can be powered by batteries. So nothing would be plugged into the wall. They're not for tiny heads, however. They fit relatively loosely, although I do have a smaller head. I think they did this for comfort. When I first bought them, I could do pushups with them on and they wouldn't come off, now that they're a bit older and looser (probably because of how I hung them off the side of my desk) they'll fall off if I try to do pushups with them on. My hat size is 7 1/8 so there's your measurement. They're not super bass heavy like tons of headphones are today, and I really like that. Plus... they're sennheiser. You really can't go wrong. They were close to $200 when I bought them. The link above said $109 when I clicked on it. EDIT: Even the newer updated version falls within your price range. Looks like they fit much tighter as well, and come with a stand. https://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-RS-165-Wireless-Headphone/dp/B00SLVAVAY/ref=dp_ob_title_ce Their battery life estimates aren't wrong either. Mine would generally work for 2 days if I had a gaming marathon all weekend, or all week if I just gamed after work. I think I bought mine...4-5 years ago? Maybe 6? And I only JUST replaced the earpads last year. I definitely enjoyed these headphones and I would consider them a definite good purchase. I generally use them now when I want to listen to music while cleaning.

    Clickbait titles and thumbnails

    You have circular reasoning here. You say that LTT generally has "very well produced and informative videos", so therefore you'll still watch a video with a clickbait title, but then you say you won't watch the video if they title it honestly. The "very well produced and informative" reason was why you clicked on the clickbait title.... why would it not be the reason you'd click on a non-clickbait title. If you like the way linus reviews things, shouldn't you be clicking on ALL of the videos, regardless of title?
