  1. Latency build up over time

    Are you sure you're measuring your latency in microseconds and not milliseconds? What are you using to measure the latency? What have you done to troubleshoot the high latency? What sort of internet setup do you have? Are you connected to your router/modem via ethernet or Wifi? Have you tried www.speedtest.net to measure your latency along with your download and upload speeds? If your latency is 80 microseconds, that is pretty fast. Just need a little more information if possible. Microsecond - Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsecond A microsecond is an SI unit of time equal to one millionth (0.000001 or 10−6 or 1/1,000,000) of a second. Its symbol is μs. One microsecond is to one second as one second is to 11.574 days. A microsecond is equal to 1000 nanoseconds or 1/1,000 milliseconds. Millisecond - Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Millisecond A millisecond (from milli- and second; symbol: ms) is a thousandth (0.001 or 10−3 or 1/1000) of a second. 10 milliseconds (a hundredth of a second) are called a centisecond. 100 milliseconds (one tenth of a second) are called a decisecond.
  2. Help!

    I had the same thing with my iPhone 7. I fixed the problem by ditching the iPhone and getting a Samsung Galaxy S8+.
  3. How to move Windows to a new SSD

    The best thing that you can do is backup your data files such as documents, pics, etc., and make yourself a bootable usb with the windows Media Creation Tool. Make the tool before you migrate your OS to the new drive. Use the tool to create your bootable SSD and all will be fine. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/15088/windows-create-installation-media
  4. Is my PSU or my MoBo?

    Mean power, or root mean square (RMS) powerhandling, refers to how much continuous power the speaker can handle. ... For example, a speaker with a 30W RMS rating but a peak rating of 60W means that speaker can comfortably run with 30 watts of continuous power, with occasional bursts of up to 60W. https://www.google.com/search?q=peak+power+vs+rms&rlz=1C1CHBF_enUS765US765&oq=peak+power+&aqs=chrome.4.69i57j0l5.5320j0j8&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
  5. Is my PSU or my MoBo?

    since i know people here on Tom's Hardware are pretty serious. First off, this is not Tom's Hardware, but back to the PSU problem. You say that your PSU is rated for 500 watts. That rating is 500 watts peak., not RMS. The RMS rating of that psu is actually around 350 watts. As such, I believe that you are trying to get your PSU to put out more power on a continuing basis than it is rated for. You might want to seriously consider obtaining a newer, higher rated PSU, something around 650 RMS should be more than enough for your system.
  6. Is this Windows 10 activation video BS?

    Doing that is along the way of committing hari-kari if you know what I mean. DON'T DO IT.....
  7. "So I used my PC for a year now and recently it's been starting to lie at me about the RAM being used up" Don't ya just hate it when they do that.
  8. Event ID 157; disk "#" surprise remove

    I'm curious, why do you need 12 drives? Here is what I found using google: These errors are most often caused when something disrupts the system’s communication with a disk, such as a SAN fabric error or a SCSI bus problem. The errors can also be caused by a disk that fails, or when a user unplugs a disk while the system is running. An administrator that sees these errors needs to verify the heath of the disk subsystem. https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/ntdebugging/2013/12/27/event-id-157-disk-has-been-surprise-removed/
  9. The only thing that using one out of two fans will do is reduce the amount of cooling ability the cooler will have. There is a reason there are two fans on the average cooler. But no matter what cooler you get, it will NOT reduce the amount of allergens in the environment. By disabling fans, the only thing you do is ruin the cooling ability of the cooler. Doesn't matter if it a liquid cooler or an air cooler.
  10. I'm confused, you say that you want a liquid cooler because you can't have a lot of dust and sand in your room because of allergies. That's fine, but whether or not you use a liquid cooler or a cpu fan/heatsink assembly won't reduce the amount of dust or sand in your room. The amount of allergens in your room will have nothing to do with what type of cooler you use. If you want to reduce the amount of allergens in your room, then wipe your feet when coming in from outdoors.
