  1. This Tron Suit is a Disney TRON licensed costume that I have attached LED's to. Currently, sequences are generated with jinx, but I plan on testing with xLights software as well. The following video is a test of the LED's on the front of the suit. This test allowed me to fine-tune the delay between state updates sent to the lights. This setup demos the music visualization capability of the suit using an Arduino uno microcontroller and 98 ws2812b neopixel LED's to display light sequences developed with jinx . I have two esp32 variations and one Raspberry Pi 4 coming so that I can test alternative methods of driving the LED's. I'm wondering if anyone has any input on software and hardware variations and tweaks that would allow for smoother animations (more FPS). I still have some head-room, I think, so I could push the current system a little harder, but any suggestions are welcomed!

  2. If it helps, I pulled the buzzer on mine, and now I listen for the relay click to know the UPS is active. If you have the UPS on anything sensitive to power failure (like work/school computers or critical equipment) then you should leave the buzzer since it will indicate the battery is failing before the failure leaves you... powerless I am only using my UPSs for my network equipment and home theater so it's better for me to not have the alarm since none of those devices are super critical (as far as data loss is concerned).
  3. @EighjanIncorrect, as you can see, it is very possible. @GNkyriosCan you post a photo of your Radeon settings?
  4. This isn't OP's problem, it's that both are running at 60, if I understand correctly
  5. Yeah, but doesn't OP want one to run at 144 and the other to run at 60?
  6. Yes, but OP said it doesn't matter if both are connected to the same graphics solution or not. Do you mean between the HDMI port on the mobo and the HDMI on the graphics card?
  7. I created this silly thing: LTT Stealth Hoodie skin on Human Fall Flat.


  8. Extended display. There's your problem Oops, was thinking duplicated display. Nvm.
  9. Ah, well maybe Steam has initiated measures to combat higher usage during the pandemic?
  10. As far as the ping is concerned, first, know that speedtest.net should only be considered a relative measure, and has been known to over-report Internet speeds, and, much like a benchmark, is rather synthetic, and may not always give an accurate picture of your Internet's reliability. Also, your ping should not generally be affected by simultaneous downloads, as far as I know, so I would agree with you that something is amiss there. If there is any equipment in your home that is managed (switch/router), it may be prioritizing other traffic over your gaming traffic. It also can't hurt to ask your ISP to run some tests.
  11. As far as your download speed, that is typical for downloads. Steam (and others) aren't going to let users pull a sustained load of 500 Mbps, so your DL speed is throttled. I get about the same DL speed as you. Your ingest speed will also depend on the weakest link in the chain, so if your storage and CPU are slow, you can't store and uncompress fast enough to download at higher speeds.

  13. Sorry for the delayed reply! I'm assuming you're talking about the Power button, Reset, HDD activity LED, etc when you say front panel. If you were talking about the lighting, disregard this post and let me know what part exactly you mean. The front panel connectors are usually in the lower right-hand corner of your motherboard. Check the manual for the layout of the connections if it isn't written directly on the motherboard. If you have the individual connectors for HDD activity, Pwr button, etc, note that the polarity of buttons shouldn't matter, so as long as you connect them to 2 pins labelled for the right button you should be fine. LEDs are different, but if you plug them in the wrong direction, you can always unplug and put them in the right way without damage.
