  1. Am I Being Hacked?

    From this I assume you don't actually own a licensed copy of windows. Are you sure your "friend", or whoever/where ever he got it from isn't the culprit? I would suggest purchasing a licensed copy, and doing a fresh install.
  2. If the CPU is the Brain..

    But cables aren't connected to the CPU (if the cpu is the brain). They are connected to the motherboard. Actually the entire computer is the brain, and the case is the skull. All the different parts of a computer can be associated with how a brain works. GPU processes optical info, audio card processes aural info, storage = long term memory, ram = short term memory, etc., etc.
  3. If the CPU is the Brain..

    I would call the motherboard the central nervous system. It delivers the information from all the other body parts to the brain.
  4. PUBG to introduce 3 new vehicles.

    Back to the OP topic. I'm looking forward to the VW van. Nice big slow moving target. PS.....I think this probably belongs in "PC Games".
  5. Good 1080p or cheaper 4K TV

    I currently don't own a tv, and I don't have much money these days, so I'd have to go cheap.
  6. Would you put stickers on your case?

    I've found they don't improve the function of my pc, so.....no. I also throw away all the posters that now seem to be included with components. Unfortunately a lot of things, including the graphics in UI's, seem to be geared toward 14 year old boys these days.
  7. RCA to AUX Cable please help!

    Take a look at this, it's pretty simple: http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Make-a-RCA-to-35mm-Cable/
  8. Soldering Heat Pipes Together?

    You must get the metal hot, or the solder won't bond to it. I've never soldered a heat pipe, but I have built coolers with lots of fins, and modified pc boards. I used "soldering heatsinks" that are designed to draw the heat away to protect other circuitry and/or components. You might try that method.They're a lot cheaper, better, and easier to find now than when I used to play around with such things. I think you're better off just clamping them with some type of bracket that provides plenty of surface contact. That's typically how it's done by manufacturers. I'm sure they would spot weld, or robotically solder them if it was a viable solution, as that would be much cheaper for them to do. If you're going to try it, make sure you're wearing protective gear, like eye protection.
  9. Complete audio newbie now stepping up a bit

    That depends on what you are doing. Are you doing a lot of music recording/mixing?
  10. audio help!!!!

    Get a PCI soundcard instead of one that takes up a PCIE slot. EDIT: Sorry, didn't realize you already said you don't want to do that because you like your integrated audio. Enjoy the static then.
  11. If you're going to "cut off" friends because they are female, and you're now in a relationship, I don't think you're much of a friend to begin with. I'm friends with women I've known since I was a little kid. I'm also still good friends with several women I once had relationships with, which ended, but we have remained good friends. You shouldn't turn your back on friends because of their gender. Not if they're true friends. Sounds to me like you're having issues with trust, self-confidence, and jealousy. If you force her to abandon her friends, you will drive her away. If you don't trust her, you shouldn't be with her in the first place. If she's going to cheat, she will do it regardless of whether that person is a "friend", or if she just met them yesterday. Good luck.
  12. I'm jumping into the Sony headphone ecosystem!

    That custom taped look is very sexy! Personally I'm fond of Duct tape, which is now available in a variety of colors. I had to vote for "none of the above", sorry.
  13. Thinking about a Blu-Ray drive. Worried about HDCP

    I have a Blu-ray drive on one of my desktops, and my laptop (both running win 10). I use Leawo Blu-ray player software (which is free), and have had no problems playing movies. I use 5KPlayer (also free) for regular DVD movies.
  14. I have the cloud 2's. Worst headphones (except they have a good mic) of the 6 pairs I own. They have a small soundstage, and everything sounds like it's coming through a metal pipe. Get the AT headphones, they beat the Hyper X's hands down. Look at the reviews on audio sites, not gaming sites. I'm not sure who told nubajj they were audiophile headsets, but they had no idea what they were talking about. You won't even find them listed on true audiophile sites. Google "audiophile forums" and you'll find some sites that will explain what I'm talking about.
  15. does the CPU have integrated gpu?

    The motherboard you linked states that it has integrated graphics. It's listed under the "video" section.
