  1. Hello everyone - I am currently using a VERY makeshift system to play my games in a portable manner. Recently my Xbox controller died a death so I've been having to use my JoyCons when streaming my games to my linux laptop using the service Rainway. The problem I am having is that even though my JoyCons are recognised as an input device the 360 controller that is emulated by Rainway moves the buttons in the wrong order, meaning playing games that have any complicated button combos is near impossible. I was wondering if there was a way that I could emulate my Joycons as a 360 controller locally so that any inputs register correctly when used. I have seen Xboxdrv but it doesn't seem to work, I think its because my JoyCons are wireless! Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks! :)
  2. Around about a year, it was provided by my ISP when it was fitted. I can sign into the router but I *believe* I can't updae the firmware as it is locked by my ISP. I've tried changing the band but the problem persists.

    Headphones arrived today, I'm very happy with it. Thanks very much for the help!
  4. Hello eveyone was wondering if you would be able to help me? I'm having this weird issue with my router whee it will make the 5G band unavailable about 5 minutes after starting a download. It stops every device from being able to access it for about 15 minutes then becomes available again. This then repeats until I reset the router; which will then see it work for a couple of days then go back to doing it again. Any ideas of how I could fix this? Thanks!

    I did see those ones but was confused as they didn't mention the Ohms on them, I presumed for the price they were the 32ohms but couldn't find any others on Amazon.

    Thank you thats a great help! So just to confirm if I buy these alongside this I should be pretty much sorted? I looked at the 250 ohm versions because I've seen a few places say the difference between then and 600 would be minimal at this level, is this right? I don't mind going for the 600 if they would be much better! Cheers again

    Ok! so after a full day of research I have decided to go for the 990's - now I know you mentioned that if I get higher than 250 ohm's I will need an AMP & DAC, I realise these will likely put me over budget so I was hoping you would be able to ELI5 me how much difference this would make. Would the difference be easy to distinguish, or for a non-audiophile like me would i probably not be able to tell the difference anyway and the standard version would be enough for the money saved? Many thanks for the help everyone!

    Thank you will check these out - do Massdrop ship to the UK? Wow few to do research on there, actually the second time I've had the DT990's suggested, are there any in the list you favour more than the others? Cheers will keep an eye out! They do look good.
  11. (Original title I know) Hello everyone was hoping you would be able to help me! I am looking for a new headset to use for gaming and general TV/movie watching. I have had a pair of Turtle Beach X12s for the past 3 years and they have finally given up the ghost so I have decided to invest in an upgraded pair for the future. I would like to preface this by saying that I am not an audiophile at all, the first time I got my X12's the sound on them absolutely blew my mind and they were only £30 from my local shop, so I dont really know what i'm looking for, I just want something that overall provides a better sound than just a normal pair of headphones, and actually feels like I am getting value for my money. My budget is £150(which Google tells me is around $190) but I would be willing to stretch to around £200 for a really good pair. I am a bit of a rare case in the fact that I don't play games online, so a microphone is really not a need for me, most of the games I play are offline games such as RPGS and Action games and watch the occasional film and Netflix series, but I probably lean about 80% gaming so this is more important for me. The problems I am having is seperating between a gaming headset and just a normal pair of headphones, I've seen multiple sources that say you can probably get a much better sound for the same price using a pair of normal headphones due to "gaming" headsets being filled with unneeded things and the microphone, I have been looking at these two pairs Steel Series Acrtis 7 and these Sennheiser HD 598SR but any reccomendations would be more than welcome. I would also if possible would like for the headphones to be wireless but I do realise that this may not be possible in my price point and I would prefer better sound than wireless capabilities. Thank you in advance! TLDR; Headset for gaming, Between £150 - £200, Don't use microphone so normal headphones are fine, Wireless if possible - but not a higher priority than sound.
  12. Hello guys, just an update looking for some advice. Got my RAM to finally work at 3333Mhz with my CPU at 3.9Ghz. Got my CPU at 1.35 volts and my RAM at 1.38. Managed to pass every benchmark (OCCT for 3 hours normal, 2 hours on Linpack, Maxmimum on 50 cycles of intel burn test, 8 hours of real bench and had no errors at all in any benchmarks i've been doing, as well as about 40 minutes playing Battlefield 1) except Prime 95 that fails with a rounding error after about 3 hours. Im running a blend test which I think is more likely to be the ram that fails? I was considering either doing a Memtest or upping my RAM volts to 1.4 and trying again. Was wondering if this was needed or if it is likely that it could be a false positive - my RAM is still not running to it's actual speed, and the CPU overclock(and my temps are very stable) No idea what to do next.
  13. Thank you for the help everyone! doen't look like I am going to get 3466 working so I am giving 3400 a go, just going to work my way back and see what I can get working best.
  14. As far an im aware IBT uses RAM very heavily - especially in the higher stress tests! Although I'm happy to be corrected if I am wrong. I am 99.9 percent sure my CPU overclock is ok - it's passed all the IBT tests on it's own as well as a few hours in Prime and OCCT(trying to be safe - ha) Only fails once I apply the change in RAM settings. Although I will give one of those pieces of software a try to see if they show any problems!
  15. Already have SOC at 1.1 and DRAM at 1.42 - didn't know how safe it would be to go over that/would it be worth it for the performance.
