  1. I would like to try to avoid that, windows HATES linux and I have a feeling that it would completely wipe both the boot and data partition. (Seeing that the partitions do not show up in disk management)
  2. I recently replaced my dvd drive with a drive. My current configuration has windows installed on a 500gb ssd and linux mint 18.3 on a 1tb hard drive. I have already successfully dual booted the two operating systems. What I am trying to do now is partition the 1tb linux drive (with preferably an ntfs file system) and share that partition between both operating systems for general data storage. I already partitioned the drive in linux with gparted with an ntfs file system, but the new ntfs partition does not show up in windows. I have attached a screenshot from disk management in windows. If anyone can help me with a solution I would really appreciate it. I am used to windows and just started to get into linux.
  3. Thanks for the help, will make it like this. (It has been a long while since I worked with transistors and remember very little)
  4. Yup polarity doesn't matter. It can go either way.
  5. Thanks for the advice, do you mean like this? (I will only be using 3 LED modules)
  6. I picked up a 12V 60mA 3xLED module (picture included). I want to use this with an Arduino nano that will generate a PWM signal with a duty cycle determined by the value of a potentiometer. I simulated the circuit that I plan on using with the results close enough to the required specifications (Tested with a signal generator and a lab power supply set to 12V and the LED module works as expected). What I would like to know, before I blow up my power supply, is if it would be safe to power this circuit from a Molex connector with the 12V going to the circuit and 5V to the Arduino for power. Are there any other precautions that I should take? This is to illuminate my rear IO panel in the dark but I also want to be able to adjust the brightness. Linus posted a video quite a while back, but there is no way using his configuration to dim the LEDs.
  7. I bought the H2100 headset. The range is not as far as I expected, but I think it is just because it is an old brick house. The sound is fantastic and it is incredibly comfortable. The only real downside is the slight hissing sound, but this is present in all wireless headset. Overall I am very happy with it and would give it a solid 4.5/5
  8. Unfortunately there isn't a wireless edition, at least not in my country
  9. Thanks for the help, will definitely take into account
  10. Yes, I am looking at either that one or the void wireless, they cost roughly the same
  11. I am looking to buy a wireless headset. First off I live in South Africa and pricing is just a mess here. I have a budget of around R 1500 (R1500 is roughly 100 USD) but can go up to R 1900. The top tech store here is wootware (http://www.wootware.co.za/computer-hardware/speakers-headsets-mics?dir=asc&order=price) and rebeltech (https://www.rebeltech.co.za/83-headsets?id_category=83&n=100). It seems that I am limited to two options, the corsair void wireless and the corsair h2100. I am interested in a pair of wireless headphones due to the fact that when I work I often spend long hours in front of the computer, occasionally moving away from it to look at class notes. I do this often enough that my current headphone's cable is starting to annoy me. I have seen several reviews for each pair online, but can't seem to find anything that compares the two. I have heard from some users that the h2100 has a bad sound quality while others said that it is fantastic. For the void wireless, some users say that it is uncomfortable when wearing the headset for a couple of hours (something that I will definitely do). Could someone maybe please recommend which of these performs best in terms of comfort, sound quality and battery life? (I don't mind disabling or particularly care about RGB)
  12. Thats computers for you. Sometimes it is just luck of the draw.
  13. I would check all of the power connections to the board, it is possible that when you were working in the case a power connection to the motherboard (such as for the cpu) came undone. Otherwise reseat the cpu and cooler.
  14. I don't think you gave enough information.
