    help Floatplane

    Can log in to floatplane but wants me to subscribe money was taken on 29/4/18 shows on PayPal. Can log in but shows no subscriptions I have to log in through let forum sign in. Floatplane forum bit bit seem to have disappeared on here I’m don’t use forums very often so I could just be being a plank.
  3. Two questions I’m afraid, having issues with the laptop. Has a Nvidia 780m took heat sink off and there is a plastic gasket on gpu leaving a small square in the middle all existing thermal paste is where the gasket is and not a lot on the gpu what does the gasket do and do I neeed it. Also think I’m getting low voltage on the USB as it won’t run the RGB on the steel series apex 150. Works fine on desktop. Asalways any help is appreciated.

    2gamers 1 machine or 2 separate rigs

    These are way dearer in the UK almost enough to warrant flights, to the USA well an excuse for a holiday the cpu and video card alone are over £884 $1232
  6. Well want some advice want to build a rig for my son and I myself have got back in to pc gaming having used a Mac for 6 years so a new rig is needed. we will play in different rooms but seeing some of Lott videos is it better to do 1 rig or 2 will the costs be lower for 1 rig I’m guessing yes’s but need higher end components . Probably looking at 3-4K including screens and I set of peripherals. Some requirements: needs to be Nvidia using game stream to shield. i prefer steel series peripherals as got used them as one of the only s ones that I could control the feb on Mac. Rgb not essential would like to do one blue /black or white and the other red / black or white.

    30 foot setup!

    Or a Nvidia shield is a cool option with added usability.
