    Extrenal vs Internal Soundcard?

    I have a pair of DT 990’s and I wanna pair them with a sound card but not sure if I should go for an external solution or internal. My father in law might be able to fix me a good external sound card, but would I be better off getting an internal one meant for gaming since that’s mostly what I’ll use the DT’s with?
  2. I've been looking around on forums for an answer to this: is soundcards dead for music and gaming? Have motherboards and headsets gotten so good that you dont need a PCIe soundcard or similar anymore? Or is it still good/an upgrade if you want better gaming audio, etc? Say: using a DT990 headset. No surround so or anything, would it be necessary?
  3. I'm currently using the HyperX cloud 2 with its USB soundcard. I'm considering getting the ASUS Strix Raid Pro Sound Card and eventually getting the Beyerdynamics 990 to pair it up with later, but my question is: Is it and upgrade pairing that soundcard with my HyperX headset? Is it an upgrade at all going to the Beyer's and the Asus sound card?
  4. My CPU is running at these temps while I'm gaming (added image). I'm streaming too, so I know it takes some tall on the CPU too, but 91 degrees C? I've never overclocked it and I'm running a Cooler Master ML240L cooler on it, which should be really good. My brother uses this cooler and he says he's reached a min.temp of 15C, so, yeah...

    What Hardware Can go with Windows XP?

    Never heard of that? Is there any guides for that? I do have a Pentium 6th Gen CPU that I could use then.
  6. I planning on build a PC for my dad who turn 80 soon. He's still going strong and uses his computer quite a lot. Very easy/low load software for Work, and facebook is a what he uses it for the most, but the computer he has atm is REALLY slow. Though my family once tried giving him a laptop with WIN10, he hated it, and went back to Windwos XP cause that's what he's familiar with. I'm planning on transferring he's hardrives over to the new system so he doesnt loose his programs and files, but I have no idea what components that would be compatible with Windows XP. Again, there's no need for an insane GPU, but a good CPU and RAM would help him out a lot.

    HyperX 7.1 Dongle or Razer Surround w/Cloud II?

    Never heard of. What is it?
  8. I just bought a Blue Yeti and I figured that I wanted to plug my Cloud 2's straight into the Yeti and use it to control my Mic audio + being able to adjust my PC volume straight from the mic. My Question now tho is: Would I be better of in games switching over to my HyperX Dongle for surround sound, or should I try out the Razer Surround Software so I can stay connected to the Yeti? Any thoughts, experience or opinions out there?

    PC doesn’t post. RAM compatibility?

    The PC now shuts off the red ligth and all the fans go full speed, but no posting when trying to start it up. Havent installed windows or anything on the SSD or HDD yet.
  10. I’m building my first pc from scratch, and everything went well until I tried to see if it posts. Machine started up and I was hopefull, but then this red light lighths up. The “cpu” light lightend up a quick sec then switched. I tried with my 8GB stick Corsair Vengance LPX DDR4 2400mhz, which I know works cause I use it daily on another PC w/ i7-7700k, Z270-A mb, GTX1060, but nothing.The motherboard on this pc is a MSI B150 Mortar arctic (link). https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/B150M-MORTAR-ARCTIC.html my RAM was set to XMP in my original system. Can that have caused anything? if it is my RAM, how do I know if any RAM/ what kind of RAM is compatible?
  11. I have some braided extension cables for PSU and I'm wondering if I can use them alone and not as extensions directly to my PSU? What would be the consequenses?

    HyperX Cloud 2 vs. Cloud Mix??

    So after the release of the Cloud Mix headset I've been wondering whats the better for Gaming? I like the thought of a headset for multi use, especially if it's better than Cloud 2. What does people think? Any comparisson articles that I don't know of?
  13. My thoughts too, but when BIOS is set to default, it says 20%, from the image above, I have activated XMP for my RAM sticks from 2133 to 2400, and set the CPU fan to "manual" setting
  14. Title says it all i guess. This shows when starting up the PC. The number seem to change after adjusting settings in BIOS.
