  1. Okay, thanks. Completely hypothetically, can I duct tape or other adhesive/patch (not solder) it so much a replacement isn't necessary? Can I use half a roll and call it a day, or would the glue gunk it all up?
  2. Got a 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix with a leaky hardline Power Steering tube. Repair is gonna cost $3-400 depending on the shop, since they're just replacing the tube. Since it's just a pinhole leak (for now), can I put some sort of adhesive around the line temporarily (temporary is relative) to fix the leak? As of now, a fluid refill gets me about 10 minutes of power steering until I have to dump another $2 of liquid in there. Can I duct tape it enough to drive it 30 miles to a really nice and cheap garage? Does power steering liquid eat through duct tape? Inb4 duct tape on pressurized parts warning. It already leaks, whats extra tape gonna do to harm it?
  3. I just assembled a Ryzen system and the POST and boot time is incredibly slow. More often than not, a CMOS reset is necessary to get to Windows. Once it's at the desktop it's incredibly fast. I know for a fact that the BIOS version is out of date. Obligatory specs: AMD Ryzen 7 1700 MSI X370 SLI PLUS R9 270 (lol) 2x8GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 3000 (underclocked at 2133 since it's unstable past that) EVGA 500B The BIOS version is E7A33AMS.300, build date 03/09/2017 (9th of March, 2017 for our international friends). Is a BIOS update all I really need to get it more stable? I can't use Game Boost or overclock my RAM past 2133 "optimised defaults" or it won't POST. Thanks!
  4. I'm looking for an OTG cable to charge my phone instead of the device. The device is battery powered, so the cable only needs to transmit information, and I'd like to charge my phone at the same time. I'm setting up a VR station using a cell phone, which is hooked up to a controller. Since it'll be used for several hours, I'd like to have the phone charging during some of it so I don't have to pause to charge it back up, however every OTG splitter I've ever found only charges the slave device and not the host (the phone). Is there a way to charge your phone (and) instead of the external device? I've found some YouTube tutorials for janky DIY methods that I really do not want to use. Anything is appreciated.
  5. I use Family Sharing because my brother doesn't have a PC and I do. Since we live together, we're the perfect choice for Family Sharing. If you have a friend with his/her own PC and library and you play together, it is NOT recommended to use Family Sharing.
  6. All you can do with Steam when it comes to game sharing is the Family Sharing plan, which is very restrictive. When you both enable Family Sharing (Steam Family Sharing Article), your libraries are "shared" and only accessible to one person at a time. If you share your 1000 games with your friend who has 5 games, you can each only play any of the 1005 games when the other is not playing. It's so there aren't large accounts with many games that people can buy access to. TL;DR you cannot move steam game keys.
  7. You can register your card any time within the Warranty as long as you still have the box and serial number. The serial number may be on a sticker on the card itself or on a piece of documentation inside the box. I actually don't know for sure because I never registered my GPU either.
  8. It could be your GPU acting funky, swap it out for one of your girlfriend's R7 360 and see if the same artifacting happens. If so, try to RMA the card under the warranty.
  9. Galactic Civilizations III is one of my favorite games if you like 4X strategy-based games. It's very similar to the Civilization series, but made by different people. Not related to Civ AE.
  10. Oldschool Runescape is pretty fun, but it's the game that defined grind. Careful getting in there, as it's hard to escape.
  11. Our phones can connect to cellular antennas easily enough from quite a distance. Even if the nearest tower is 30km away, you'll still get signal. I believe modern phones can do that, but many routers don't have the range due to being consumer grade or being poor quality (or both!).
  12. Linus, we all know what needs to come next. All-in-one towers. All-in-one monitors. All-in-one desks. I hope you get needs to happen. All-in-one gaming chair.
  13. I'd recommend seeing if you can snipe a good modular or semi-modular PSU. I have that exact PSU and there are so many wires cable management will be damn near impossible. Otherwise that's a solid looking build, assuming you have an OS.
  14. I was rewatching the moving vlogs from when the team moved into the warehouse and saw that they used a Google Sketchup model to lay out where everything goes so they could set it up easily. Is it possible to find this and take myself on a virtual tour?
