  1. Here's the drive all disassembled. When I took it apart the Micro USB connector end was broken off from the USB A end of the drive. It looks like if the exposed brown color is part of the actual flash chip, it very well could be a gonner.
  2. With all the playing around with the drive I've done it has yet to show up in Disk Management.
  3. A while ago I dropped my laptop off my bed while my Corsair Flash Voyager Go was in one of the USB ports. Unfortunately, when I picked up my laptop off the ground I noticed that the laptop basically landed directly on the flash drive after a three foot drop. On top of that, when I disconnected and then reinserted the flash drive to see if it was ok, nothing happened. I tried plugging it into my phone using the micro USB end, and still nothing. After some fiddling around I discovered that while Windows Explorer wasn't recognizing the drive, if I had it plugged in in just the right position I could at least get Windows to trigger the "device connected" noise, and Device Manager also recognizes the name of the device in the Disk Drives dropdown. However, that's where my luck has ended, as the Device Manager properties tab for the drive shows nothing in the Volumes tab of the disk properties. Has anyone ever experienced a USB drive behaving like this after hard impact, or know anything at all about getting Windows to see an actual volume with files when the drive is connected?
  4. See I was wondering if purchasing an aftermarket replacement cable without the memory wire style cable guides would help alleviate this problem possibly as well. Even though I don't think that I'm allergic to any kind of rubber or silicone, I was hoping that a braided fabric styled cable might help. However, right now I think the skin might be healing or getting better at least since when I woke up this morning the bumpy skin felt a lot harder and less sensitive to the touch.
  5. I just got a pair of brand new Audio Technica ATH-IM50s from Amazon on Friday and I love them. They're my first pair of actually decent earbuds (coming from my daily driver JVC HAFX32B Marshmallow earbuds) and I'm really happy that now I can enjoy high quality audio outside of sitting at my desk with my ATH-M40Xs. However, I have noticed a very interesting issue with them: the backside of my ears seem to be having some kind of allergic reaction with the cables. So I want to find out from you guys if this is not uncommon for new IEM users, especially since this is my first experience with earbuds/in ears that route the cable over the top and back of the ear. Also, I would not say that I am at all prone to having allergic reactions due to contacting something. So what do you guys think? Is this normal because the skin around my ears is adjusting to the friction from the memory wire on the IEMs, or is there some other reason like an actual allergic reaction? Thanks
  6. Looks like you might be right. Found this on Lenovo's driver page for the 900:
  7. From my experience, I've been able to install a new ssd using a stock windows copy and the windows key transferred just fine. From what I've seen the key has some sort of tie in to the bios or root files or something like that, so it automatically activates when you install a new windows copy even on a new drive.
  8. My sister bought a refurb Yoga 900 off Ebay and she kinda wants to factory reset it so that she can go through the full set up process and make sure everything is to her liking and all that. Now, I suggested having her make a Windows USB drive with Microsoft's Media Creation Tool, and from there booting off of it and installing an oem Microsoft version of Windows sans all the Lenovo junk and everything. My only concern with this approach is concerning the special Yoga functions when you change the laptop orientation. So basically does anybody know if a stock Windows install would still let it do the screen rotation and keyboard disabling when you flip the orientation or if there's a way to install the drivers for that off of Lenovo's website, or if I should just have her do a factory reset from within the current installation of Windows and not have her worry about using a USB drive to reinstall a new copy of Win?
  9. -Solved- Deleted the app from the phone and reinstalled using OpenGapps. For some reason that worked when reinstalling from the play store and apks didn't. Might have something to do with the app being a system app vs being a standalone download app.
  10. Just yesterday google fit started acting up on my watch. I use the standard digital google fit watch face as my standard face and while I was working out yesterday suddenly I received a popup on my watch that android wear was not responding, and so I pressed stop. When it returned to the watch face, I noticed that instead of showing the correct activity time and type, instead the ring had been replaced with a completed circle identical to the color of normally the biking activity and the activity time instead of showing the correct activity time just reflected the current clock time showed on the watch face. I tried uninstalling the app from my phone, and after reinstalling the app to my phone the app won'y reinstall onto my watch, even after two factory resets. Has anybody else experienced anything this bizarre/know what I can do to fix this? Thanks!
  11. G710+ has an orange accent and comes with browns. G710 has a blue accent and blue switches.
  12. Custom watercooling is a bit more tricky without a reservoir, but especially if your rad has multiple ports you theoretically should be able to top it up using one of those ports. It just makes bleeding your loop a lot harder since you have much less excess fluid to deal with when trying to get your loop completely saturated with fluid so the pump doesn't run dry.
  13. That Intel 750 SSD uses the NVME protocol, so it wouldn't use SATA space but it would use PCIE lanes. That could be a problem if you are running more than one graphics cards and the CPU you are using doesn't support much more than 16 or so lanes.
  14. Theoretically you should be safe no matter what you plug into. USB is fairly smart about now allowing more amperage than the device can take, but I could see how something like a cheap USB lighter wouldn't have the proper resistors or whatever to comply with the USB spec for safety. Especially since you are trying to charge a simple lighter it really shouldn't matter whether you charge off of a .5 or 1 amp port since the lighter won't be slurping power away like a phone would because it isn't in an always on mode like a phone. Newer phones usually can't do .5 amps simply because they are using more power by the phone being on and running the display than they are are taking in from the power brick.
  15. Basically the most noticeable difference is the price. The 6800K is going to be faster because it's newer and clocked a bit higher, but for all intents and purposes it will be a stone's throw away as far as the performance you will get from the one verses the other.
