    Best Clip on Microphone?

    Hi all! I just have a question about a microphone. So basically, I am creating a trailer for a VR game that I am making for a school project and I plan on conducting interviews for the trailer (then putting them in the trailer). I'm looking for a budget clip-on microphone to record the audio while I conduct the interviews. I plan on using my Nikon D5500 camera to visually record the interview, and Adobe Audition to edit and clean up the audio. I don't have any experience when it comes to these microphones, so I thought I'd ask! I was looking at these: https://www.amazon.com/Professional-Omnidirectional-Microphone-Smartphones-Cancelling/dp/B073QP48RV/ref=sr_1_4?keywords=clip%2Bon%2Bmicrophone&qid=1555083082&s=musical-instruments&sr=1-4&th=1 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B075JHG28K/ref=sspa_dk_detail_9?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B075JHG28K&pd_rd_w=5zdSj&pf_rd_p=80559f3c-f83b-49c1-8a72-40f936e9df7a&pd_rd_wg=YqGuE&pf_rd_r=92229W939GCZ4170ZZVV&pd_rd_r=18363cc0-5d38-11e9-b1c8-45093f8a9dce https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07KYQ9SCF/ref=psdc_196575011_t1_B01N9O7KWY Thanks guys!

    Upgrading to a 9900K?

    Would this be too much? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00L7UZMAK/?tag=isgpunerd-20

    Upgrading to a 9900K?

    I always thought that water cooling would be better vs air cooling. I know it usually depends on the situation though, but would an air cooler keep it from reaching 85C?

    Upgrading to a 9900K?

    What would be a good cooler for a 7700K? Right now I have a Corsair h00v2. I would do my own watercooling, but right now, I just don't have the time, so I've been using AIO's.

    Upgrading to a 9900K?

    When I first open my scene, I see my CPU spike up to around 85C for a couple of minutes, then it starts to drop back down to mid 70's-60's once its done loading. The scene itself runs fine, it's just that my CPU gets toasty. I'm doing a VR project, and my 7700K has been able to handle the entire scenes up till the very last bits. The computers at my college have Xeons and I have been using those to finish the tail end of the scenes, but it's just annoying to transfer these big files back and forth.
  6. Hi all, So lately I've been doing some hefty projects in Unity, so my question is do you think I should upgrade my 7700K to a 9900K? Or should I upgrade my water cooling? My CPU tends to get toasty with these big projects. My current specs: Core i7 7700K GTX 1080 32 gigs DDR4 Thanks! Steve
  7. Hi all, I just have a quick question about my i7. So I have an AIO Corsair H100 V2, and some of these temperatures are making me nervous. I do know that the Kaby Lake series tends to run a bit hot, but I just want to make sure that these are safe temperatures. Right now, I have Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, XD, Mozilla Firefox and Windows Explorer open and these are my temps (Linked in picture). Sometimes when I am using Unity, my CPU ramps up pretty hot, mid 80's I'd say, and to be fair, the project I'm working on is pretty hefty. Are these safe temperatures? Should I think about upgrading my cooler? Thanks!! Steve

    Looking for an NVMe PCIe USB Reader

    Thanks guys!! Your right, it is pretty pricey. I'll probably just end up putting it in my PC and selecting the right boot drive.

    Looking for an NVMe PCIe USB Reader

    My only concern with that is it has Windows 10 on it and I don't want it to try to boot from the NVME, but I'm assuming I can change the boot sequence if need be?

    Hmmm do I risk this to get a 1080ti?

    That picture is from Amazon, I say the Ebay listing is a scam:
  11. Hi all, Recently my laptop died and I took it apart to get the SSD and RAM etc.. out of the laptop. I'm in need of an NVMe PCIe Reader, but can't seem to find one. Here is what mine looks like: https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-MZVLW256HEHP-PM961-256GB-Internal/dp/B06VYJMLS8 I currently purchased this reader, to only realize that the reader's pins are on the wrong side: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XC4381L/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Does anybody have any suggestions on where to buy a USB reader for this??? Cheers! Steve

    Fan connection help

    Microphone not working

    This is just my experience from a Blue Yeti, but I just plugged in my Yeti and setup the microphone according to the program I was using. I do believe you need realtek audio by default (I could be wrong though). I would make sure the program or game microphone settings are setup correctly. I know Discord can be a little funky (for me at least) when it comes to microphone settings.

    GPU Upgrading tips?

    In my experiences I do the following: - Check to see if your PSU has enough wattage to run the Vega 56 - Uninstall current AMD R9 380 drivers - Physically install the Vega Graphics card - Boot and reinstall graphics drivers for Vega 56 Link to Newegg Power Supply Calculator to ensure your power supply can handle the new Vega graphics card: https://images10.newegg.com/BizIntell/tool/psucalc/index.html?name=Power-Supply-Wattage-Calculator

    Weird Smell PC

    Is that something I should be concerned about? Because I can feel the hot air coming out of the side of the card, mainly towards the back of the card, not so much the front. Also I've been running a game for roughly an hour and the temperature is sitting at 74 C
