  1. As the title implies, I am looking for either a tablet, or maybe even a touch screen laptop that folds, or has a detachable keyboard that allows me to write on it with some sort of stylus. I do not need the tablet to have any other capabilities really. As I have a desktop computer that I use at home for everything else. I don't mind paying for a nice item, if it's something that is worth the expense and will last. Also, preferably something with Windows 10, because I'm familiar with troubleshooting issues in Windows 10. Thanks!
  2. Holy shit, 24 lanes just on the chipset? So I could use pretty much anything in the smaller slots without dedicating cpu lanes then.? Thanks for the picture by the way. I'll be sure to save that
  3. It may seem off the wall to you, however my logic is something like as follows: Devices within PCIe slots, use PCIe lanes. A system's CPU, and Chipset use lanes of their own. I'm not sure where it's specified what devices are using which slots/lanes. Or even if that's a relevant question. Electrical engineering is nuanced topic
  4. https://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php?name=MB-MAXHEWA&c=CJ&cjevent=bf44dcbff4ba11e8821901c70a24060b# Would the on-board wi-fi solution use PCiE lanes from my CPU or from the chipset? For example: If I were to use the wi-fi ports on the motherboards I/O, will I be losing GPU performance? Another question: If I were to use a network card I would lose performance, because my CPU would be dedicating lanes correct?
  5. I don't think mine has one. Asus i370 gaming I believe it's called. It's the z370 mitx board. It did come with this thing for wi-fi however. Which I thought was a nice touch, even though I use an ethernet cable.
  6. I've never seen that Fan extension card before, that thing seems pretty interesting. Looks like it's only supported on ASUS boards https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboard-Accessory/FAN-EXTENSION-CARD/
  7. That's a good point. Maybe if I intently listened to my PC, or measured it with some sort of device then there would a difference, but there isn't enough of a subjective difference for me to notice. What do you use to measure coolant temps?
  8. I guess based on the fact that the side panel fits back on, and the top two fans don't have much of an impact on airflow; Then the D15's only downfall (which isn't a big one, and also it's moot) would be that it's a bit uncomfortable to install; that may not even be the case either. If I had a do-over, I would likely just go with the D15, however, I don't feel like buying one now is really worth it. Like previously mentioned, it doesn't make much sense to me to buy a new cooler, to see small to no noticeable increase in games. Plus I like the aesthetic, and ease of installation on the smaller coolers, so that too is a plus.
  9. It's also to my understand that TP Link seems to have a pretty solid reputation. Also that is a good point about using the ethernet if you're close to the router anyways. Do you (or anyone else who happens to see this) know whether or not there has been videos on the subject?
  10. Personally, I've never had troubles with the smaller adapters. What sort of issues have you ran into with them?
  11. Thanks for the suggestion; however my solution seems to be cheaper and have a bit better speeds!
  12. My friend and I just recently finished fixing up his computer. Now all he needs is an internet solution. Long story short: he needs Wi-fi, he's not using hardline. Normally whenever I'm in this situation I recommend people just buy a USB dongle like the one linked below. Do you guys have any other preferred method that you use? https://www.amazon.com/Inamax-1200Mbps-Wireless-802-11ac-10-4-10-13/dp/B0773ZPKS2/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1532987391&sr=8-3&keywords=wi-fi+dongle
  13. I guess I would just think that there would be a software, that could force a computer to produce all possible colored pixels within a given amount of time. And then the software could store those values, and compare them to a chart/table that had all of the possible colors of a given spectrum. I'm not sure how a computer couldn't do that actually
  14. I don't plan to overclock. I have overclocked in the past, and although it is an interesting activity to do, it really doesn't impact my performance to a noticeable amount. That was one of the reasons why I was just fine with going with a D9L. I saw one Nano S, and the individual was forced to take out the top fans. I wonder how that would affect thermals? It may not be much, but that's a valid question. It is good to know that you can fit one with the motherboard however. Also in a lot of cases it seems incredibly claustrophobic. I'm unsure that with my case I would even be able to fit the side panel back on. Also, as long as I'm not thermal throttling, and I haven't lost noticeable performance, I don't mind under-clocking a chip bit. I feel as though I'm kind of over chasing the best possible temps, just so I can spend hours on overclocking for gains that translate to practical null in reality. For example: If I spend more money on a better cooler now, I'll be able to throw on a slight overclock, gain no noticeable performance (in games), and possibly have to rearrange all my fans. Just seems like a lot of work and money for not enough of a gain. Don't get me wrong, having cooler temperatures is a nice thing to have, but it seems to be more of a technicality, then a practicality
  15. What sort of electronic device, and do you know why that using software to measure isn't enough? Is the principal to just get a bit more of an accurate understanding, as the hardware tester and software test are both susceptible to inconsistencies and inaccuracies?
