  1. I've been having a really strange issue as of lately: basically any time that I go to access random things on Windows, whether it be just accessing my downloads folder, uploading a file to Chrome, or searching something through my Start menu, everything is insanely slow to load. I have Windows installed onto my NVMe SSD so I'm not exactly sure why things are so sluggish, but say I click on my Downloads folder shortcut, my CPU usage for Windows Explorer will just spike to like 40% and once everything is loaded properly, the CPU usage goes back to normal. If I even right click on something in my downloads folder, it spikes back up to 40% and takes like 30 seconds to load. And for searching on my Start menu, the search result takes like 20 seconds instead of like 3 seconds like it was before and my Cortana CPU usage spikes. And when I'm in Chrome trying to upload a file to say Google Drive, the actual box that pops up for me to upload my file takes like a minute to pop up and my Google Chrome starts using like 40% CPU. Everything has been working fine for months now, this issue only started like a week ago. CPU: i7-9700k GPU: ASUS ROG 1070 Mobo: ASUS Prime Z390-A Drives: Crucial P1 1TB NVMe (boot drive), Samsung 860 EVO 500GB, 2TB Seagate ST2000DM001
  2. Hello. I'm having this issue today where I'm only able to access certain things on my computer. For example, I can load Facebook, Google, and some other random webpages but stuff like Twitch, Discord, and Spotify state they have no connection. My exact error in Chrome when I access a page I can't is "DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN". Yesterday I was on this computer perfectly fine and I have not tweaked any settings whatsoever, just woke up and it wasn't working anymore. My network drivers are up to date as well and rebooted my PC a few times, even used a different WiFi adapter with no success. I also googled the problem and saw people were manually switching their DNS to Google's DNS or OpenDNS through their network settings and that didn't work for me either. OS: Windows 10 64bit CPU: i7-9700k GPU: ASUS ROG 1070 16GB of RAM Mobo: ASUS Prime Z390-A
  3. Hey everyone. I'm currently in the market for my first pair of actual dedicated headphones. I've been using a gaming headset for the past ~6 or so years now but I'm ready to make a change. I'm looking in the 200 or less range for a pair of open-back headphones and I plan on pairing it with a ModMic USB. I do not have a amp/dac to pair the headphones with but I do plan on getting some in the long run. I've been pretty used to headphones with a heavy emphasis on low end and I've only used closed back headphones, so I'm ideally looking for an open-back pair with a more balanced sound but still has a bit of emphasis on bass. I've been looking at the Beyerdynamic DT 990 PRO's, the Massdrop Sennheiser HD 6XX's (slighlty higher than $200), and the Audio-Technica ATH AD500X's but I don't know anyone who personally owns / uses these. I'd love some advice, thank you!
  4. Hey everyone, I'm currently looking for a TKL keyboard with a detachable cable and RGB lighting. The Masterkeys Pro S and the Logitech G Pro look like very good keyboards that fit what I'm looking for, but I was curious if anyone has any comments or other suggestions for other keyboards similar to these. If anyone owns either of these keyboards and would like to give me their thoughts on it, that would be much appreciated as well.
  5. Hi, at the moment I'm running an Intel i5-3550 on a Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3H motherboard. I'm running 2x4GB sticks of Ballistix Sport RAM and I'm trying to fill the next two slots with RAM but my Cryorig H7 prevents me from filling the fourth slot. Will it be able to work with 2x4GB sticks and a 8GB stick in the third slot?
  6. Hi everyone. I've been on the hunt for a good keyboard that has: RGB per key backlighting A detachable cable 10 key numpad removed A wrist rest I can't really seem to find a good keyboard that fits all of these standards, with the new Logitech G Pro coming pretty close, but not quite. Help?
  7. Hello, I've been looking for a new case for awhile now and tempered glass looks like a pretty appealing market to get on. I've been looking at various tempered glass models and I was just wondering if anyone has suggestions for a relatively budget temp glass case. I saw the Phanteks recently released the P400 with tempered glass for $79.99 which is pretty appealing, since it has good space, PSU shroud, cable management, included LED lighting. But on the other hand, there's also the S340 Elite which is also nice. The only reason I haven't bought the P400 yet is because there hasn't been many reviews of it. Any suggestions are appreciated though, thanks.
  8. I've been getting thermal throttled a bit in my games, causing a lot of dropped frames. I just have a 120mm rear fan that came in my case and I'm not able to install fans in the front.
  9. Hey there, still pretty new to the forums so I hope I posted this to the right category. I recently got a ASUS GTX 1070 to add to my rig, consisting of a i5-3550 and 8GB of RAM. Before adding the 1070, I had a 750 and my CPU temps were in the mid 30's on idle and high 50's under load. After adding the 1070, my idle CPU temps are high 30's to low 40's and high 50's to mid 60's under load. I'm assuming this is because the 1070 is a much beefier card, producing more heat, but I just wanted to ask just in case. Should I consider upgrading my CPU fan? I'm currently using an Alpine 11 for a CPU cooler, and I plan on upgrading to a Cryorig H7 or a Hyper 212 Evo. Would this upgrade lower my CPU temps back to what they used to be, if not better? I feel pretty uncomfortable seeing my CPU in the mid 60's while just playing games. Thanks again.
  10. Okay, thanks guys. I plan on running Heaven and I'll see if I can also do Cinebench. Thanks again guys!
  11. Hello, this is my first ever post on the LTT forums. Sorry if I posted this in the wrong sub-forum, but this seemed like the only one that relatively fit my question. I plan on buying a used ASUS GeForce GTX 1070 ROG in my area and I was just wondering if there were any sort of precautions I should look out for when going to pick it up. He will have the card running on his computer to show me that it's working, but what should I visually inspect on the card and what should I test on his computer? The information that he's given me is that the card has been used since July 31st, he mostly played WoW and The Witcher on it, and besides that, not much else. Just as a note, I've never bought used hardware and this will be a first time for me so any words of advice would be appreciated.
