  1. I recently upgraded from windows 7 to window 10 but I've encountered a pretty annoying issue: 3D applications become limited to 60 FPS if I mirror any of my displays to my 4K TV. How does Windows 10 handle displays compared to Windows 7 and is there a way to get my monitor to run 3D applications at a unlocked framerate? I think the main issue is that this cases a framerate cap but I don't have a underlying knowledge on how to remove the cap in this situation. There's gotta be some kind of windows 10 setting that causes this issue. I've disabled the frame caps and Vsync in Nvidia control panel and Nvidia inspector and can verify that if I set all displays to to either "extend desktop" or disabled, the frame cap disappeared. But when anything is mirrored this 60FPS cap returns. My monitors maintain their refresh rates (in windows settings) If I disable mirroring the frame cap goes away Monitor setup: Where: 1 is a 144Hz 1080p monitor (main) 2 & 3 are 60 Hz 1080p monitors, generic 4 is a 4K 60Hz Smart TV My setup: GTX 1070 GPU i7 4790K 4.0 Ghz 32 GB RAM 4 displays (including 1 TV for couch games) If there's any more information that I could provide to help let me know, I need suggestions though! thanks
  2. What is the best articulating monitor arm? I will be using them for a triple monitor setup soon. Requirements: Desk mounted Move up and down and at least adjustable side to side Tilting The current one I am looking at is this: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07BBHJK86/ref=sspa_dk_detail_4?pd_rd_i=B07BBHJK86&pd_rd_wg=MFa0C&pd_rd_r=27T3MR5V7SVW5ZHHRSR4&pd_rd_w=6qShC&th=1 It seems like a good choice but its review are limited, I'd like to make sure what I do buy is going to be good in the long-run.
  3. Never Google should be able to choose what it wants to have, if it stops too much, Youtube will die.
  4. Basically, PragerU, a non-profit conservative organization is suing Google for their content being blocked by Youtube in its "Restricted Mode," Citing that it infringes on their freedom of speech from the 1st US amendment. Their videos are also demonetized though to a extent I do not know. The demonetization could simply be missed revenue by having it not show up for the lost viewership. I think this is relevant because Internet censorship is something we should all be extremely interested in and if its happening, should respond to appropriately.

  5. I imagine you would be able to get a basic computer for about the same price as a Network hub... It sounds to me that the ability for people to (even if crippled) still work while the main computer is offline would be a good thing to have.
  6. You should consider more than just College in your laptop purchase: Do you game? Is this your only PC? Can I upgrade my laptop without voiding the warranty? Can I upgrade its RAM and internal HDD easily? And lastly, the most important part: Do you even need a laptop for what you are doing? I have friends who do not have a laptop and do fine in community colleges. Laptops are not necessarily a requirement, but it depends on what you do. I am in Computer Engineering and would die without a laptop that is capable of gaming, (GTX 960M) my friend going to a community college is going into the automotive industry and still shares his desktop PC with his parents! Edit: As far as recommendation goes, AVOID any Chromebook. What you will be using must be able to use Microsoft Word, I've personally had instances in which Google Docs failed to catch a dumb mistake (like a sentence fragment) while Word caught that same one. That said, its not perfect either. (one could go for Linux, but Windows is a lot more stress free.)
  7. As a side note for North American Users, Look at Newegg! Cheapest prices: GTX 1070: $490 GTX 1080: $510 Pretty crazy, maybe Miners are picking up the 1070s instead of RX Vega now. I bought my 1070 on launch day for $450 seems weird prices are still so high.
  8. Me too, how are you getting a 1080 for the price of a 1070? Hands down, Get the 1080.
  9. You can get cooler temps, say CS:GO uses 20% at 1400Mhz, could it use 80% at 800Mhz while also running cooler. That said, its pointless to underclock unless you like causing hardship for yourself Check your temps, best thing you can do here is cut out some holes in both your case, and the desk if possible.
  10. I'll probably feel that way with my i7 4790K & 1070 today, but I found the Q6600 (at stock speeds) to be way too slow, and got pretty toasty on my Zalman at 3.2Ghz. a GTX 660 could bottleneck the stock chip.
  11. Alchohol or (If you have a very long time to dry,) water. I'd recommend Isoprobyl-Alchohol as its good vs. sticky stuff.
  12. I don't know much about the euro market, I think that you may want something at least as powerful as the GT 620, if you already have the PC though, try the IGPU. It may already be sufficient.(if there is one)
  13. If you only want to play these two games, you will probably only need a dual-core without hyperthreading. The GPU is absolute overkill, but I didn't want to go to the 750 ti for $10 less.

  14. Get a new set of genetics. <--Most permanent way Consider getting a towel to wipe your hands on, or cooling your room down.
  15. I suppose just any mouse will do. Really! Personally, I use the Logitech M570, but thats a trackball. Does pretty well in gaming. It'd just be your best bet if you want a solid mouse for many years.
  16. My ASUS Strix GTX 1070 reaches 2050 in its OC mode, I don't know if this is comparable or not. Similar temps.
  17. Or the IDE PCI adapter since we probably lack the super fast IDE standard on the motherboard!
  18. Like mentioned, please try new audio drivers. It could just be static, I've had audio drivers resolve the static sounds albeit constant hissing for static on both speakers. an RMA for a motherboard sounds really painful to me. no doubt to you too!
  19. That would be the most likely time for a problem to arise, the first month. Problems usually come in the first month OR after many, many years. I'd recommend trying a soundcard, then sticking up with either a refund or an RMA to hopefully get a good MOBO.
  20. This may seem very stupid, but try wearing the headphones backwards, Solved! No more buzzing in the right ear! More seriously: Do you have an analog or USB headphone set? Try another pair to test.
  21. Considering you are up in the price range, consider going up to the Sandisk Ultra 2 480GB going for $103. I've had mine for a year and its pretty nice, only issue you might have is that its not the fastest around, but its still very fast as an SSD. imo a better deal than a $70ish 240GB.
  22. What I think you have to do is this: (I might be wrong though, so google about it!) uninstall your GPU and take it out install intel iGPU drivers so that it runs nicely Reinstall the GPU and its drivers results?? I have not tried this personally, just heard about such a thing.
  23. I'm going to go out of strictly cooling: Which would you rather look at? A beautiful heatsink or a beautiful lack of one? That is really what it comes down to, Air and Water both perform about the same (for closed loops/AIOs) with Air being the quieter and more reliable of the two (reliability in terms of longevity, perhaps leaks but especially put in favor toward Air due to a lack of pump.) If you are looking for a great Cooler for a pretty good price look at the $40-60 range, these will allow you to get very nice heatsinks without risking high temperatures. The range also destroys AIOs at the pricepoint, here are some models to look for: Cryorig H5 Ultimate (R1 if its in the price point) $47 H5, R1 is $70, too expensive. Thermalright Macho Rev. B $55 Dark Rock Pro (expensive, $65) All of these should be able to give you a good OC and good temperatures, be sure to check reviews. If you want a cheap one, the Cryorig H7 is also a good choice.
  24. You need to try these games with your current setup as is. It should be able to do Overwatch but I don't know anything about Call of Duty. The key would be to find out if the current setup is not sufficient.
  25. Air Cooling beyond the stock cooler will be more than sufficient.
