    HDD Vibration

    It's quite possibly a normal operation sound, then. No problem!

    HDD Vibration

    Could you record the noise it is making? Hard drives do make noise under normal operation, it's just a "click" that worries me.

    Do i need a power supply with higher wattage

    650w will be plenty. EVGA gold is quite good.

    HDD Vibration

    Your drive sounds like it's dying. Replace it or at least back up anything you care about.

    Please Help with Streamlabs problem

    but for what service?

    Please Help with Streamlabs problem

    Well what do you have your streaming server set as?

    Raid 0 NVME

    RAID 0 improves both. I think RAID 1 *might* be able to speed up reads as well but it's meant to protect data, not speed up its access.

    144 hz problem... Rtx cards...

    No it's definitely DVI-D. There are no analog pins, though you are right that DVI-I would not work on an RTX 2080 (DVI-D only)

    So win10 unactivated???

    But you should use linux for a server anyway.

    144 hz problem... Rtx cards...

    Are you sure it's actually dual link? It says 1080p max and dual link DVI can do 1440p 60.

    144 hz problem... Rtx cards...

    That's only single link DVI. There shouldn't be a gap in the middle between the two blocks of pins.

    Finally doing 2FA... Which provider?

    I have yet to adopt a proper password manager but I imagine it's best to use separate providers. That way, even if some catastrophic failure leaks your data, it's either passwords or 2FA codes, not both. I started using Authy though and it's great. Easy to use and with cloud backup.

    What happens to extra pixels of photos

    High resolutions mean the analog image is better represented by digital pixels. Remember, light isn't limited to square pixels, so the more pixels you have, the more data is preserved. Those very high resolution images are then digitally downscaled for viewing on screens that may be only 1080p, which looks far better than viewing an image of a resolution that matches the screen.
  14. I've been intending to setup two factor authentication for a while now, and with a recent potentially phishing scare (it turned to be legit but for a few minutes I thought my mom had given out her paypal password to a phishing website) ,it brought password security to my mind again. I'm currently leaning toward Authy for its ease of use when switching devices but Google Authenticator is another option. Then there are lastpass and microsoft authenticator to think about. I honestly can't decide which solution to go with.

    Why can I not play 4k/60 videos?

    He said he has a 7th gen i5 which is certainly new enough.
