    Graphics card better all the sudden?

    Yeah It's probably just the GPU not sitting right on the PCIe slot, especially since the motherboard is a cheap Chinese "X79" board paired with a $30 Xeon lol

    I just thought it was a slow low-end card that I only payed 100 bucks for.

    Graphics card better all the sudden?

    So I built a system with an RX 570 and it was struggling to run the dumbest games like Roblox and Insurgency, then my friend gave me his GTX 1080 because he was waiting for the rest of his PC to ship. So I popped in it and it worked great! But a few days later I had to give it back to him and put in my old RX 570 back into my system, but this time it was running better than it has ever before! Definitely not as fast as the GTX 1080 but it ran Roblox and Insurgency like a champ! Keep in mind I ran DDU and installed the latest GPU drivers on all 3 graphics card swaps. The RX 570 has been on the same driver version since I built it. So what happened?

    Which AliExpress X79 motherboard should I get?

    Reputable brands are expensive as hell. I've had two Chinese X79 boards and they worked fine for me, but I don't have those right now lol. For a Ryzen 3 2200G, 16GB DDR4-3000, and a B450 board would be around $250 while an E5-4620 V2, 16GB ECC DDR3-1333 ECC, and the HUANAN board would be around $185. Keep in mind the Xeon build has 8 cores, 16 threads @ 3GHz stock and Quad channel memory. Also this is kind of a temporary PC as I'll be moving in like 5 months.

    Which AliExpress X79 motherboard should I get?

    I'm pretty convinced that at least the HUANAN boards would be just fine from this video:
  6. I'm trying to get some cheap parts to make a decent workstation/gaming PC. My budget is ~$500 but I'd like to spend as low as possible. I've found these two motherboards on AliExpress, this Vakind one and this HUANAN board. There aren't any good reviews on the Vakind one so I'm pretty hesitant about it, but it is cheaper. The HUANAN seems to be a pretty good option from Tech YES City (youtube channel). I'm going to try to pair this with a 6-8 core Xeon with decent clock speeds, I'm eyeing out on the E5-2680, 2670, 4620 V2, 2640, and 1650, so if any of those are good or bad please let me know. A few of my requirements that I'm not sure the Vakind board has is ECC Quad Channel RAM support and legit M.2 support, preferably has NVMe support too. I'm also curious on overclocking, I do plan on putting a fan on the VRM heatsinks and I'm pretty sure flashing the BIOS will only get you from 3.9GHz to 4.2, with the risk of bricking it so I'll probably not do that. I just want to know if I can set the multiplier on any of the CPU's I mentioned to 3.9GHz. So yeah, please help me because there's very little information about some of these parts.

    Trying to use the HTC Vive Wireless Adapter on a Laptop...

    Maybe because it's only through a USB 3.1 port? But GPU mining riser cards still use USB 3 but they actually get that native PCIe port.
  8. So I noticed that the Vive wireless adapter requires you to use a PCIe 1x wireless card thing, which can only be plugged into a desktop PC. I think that this is dumb because there's a lot of VR players that play on laptops and I don't want to use the crappy TPCast version. But, you can probably use an external GPU enclosure and pop in that wireless card into there through Thunderbolt 3, but those enclosures are like $200 which is more than half the price of the freaking wireless adapter you already got. So I want to see if there are any ghetto versions out there. I'm thinking about doing this: Plugging in a Type C 3.1 (because thunderbolt 3 to M.2 adapters are crazy expensive) to the laptop like this one. Then using a M.2 to PCIe 4x adapter when you take off the M.2 plastic enclosure thing like this. I'm thinking that it could work considering USB 3 GPU risers work for mining and sometimes gaming as shown in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J_chC1-gylg But, the thing that lacks is a PCIe port on a Laptop, which the only way to do that legitimately with 4 PCIe lanes is through Thunderbolt 3, but this Vive wireless card is only 1x (idk if it requires 4 lanes or not). Any other suggestions or do I have to get the expensive Thunderbolt 3 stuff?

    Nickel blocks with copper radiator?

    So would a full copper watercooling kit but just adding a nickel gpu waterblock be fine?

    Nickel blocks with copper radiator?

    Something like this? https://www.amazon.com/XSPC-Performance-Premix-Coolant-Green/dp/B00AXW07TE Isn't this the same as anti-corrosion coolants?
  11. The only RX Vega waterblocks that are on the market are made out of nickel, I know mixing metals is bad in general but I wonder if just having the the radiators be copper and everything else being nickel would be okay? Please help... Also if you can find copper Vega waterblocks or nickel radiators, say so please!

    Best 144hz deal?

    If you downgrade the settings, maybe you'd hit that 120FPS+ mark.

    Best 144hz deal?

    A GTX 1060 can totally play E-Sports title's like CSGO over 144 FPS

    Wireless Earbuds for Oneplus 6T?

    It's a bit more expensive and they still have a wire, but it still looks pretty compelling.

    Wireless Earbuds for Oneplus 6T?

    I'm about to get a Oneplus 6T and I've been looking for wireless earbuds on Amazon. I found these two that are pretty compelling: https://www.amazon.com/Wireless-Kissral-Bluetooth-Headphones-Case-Black/dp/B07HKYGBT8/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1542690656&sr=8-2-spons&keywords=wireless+earbuds&psc=1#customerReviews https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07JJL4HSN/ref=psdc_172541_t1_B07HKYGBT8#customerReviews Which one do you think is better for the price/battery life? Do you have any other suggestions?
