    software for assignable leds

    Hello, I'm planning on adding some ambylight so my setup around my monitors. I've found a good software for the actual ambilight (ambibox in my case) it fits my needs. But I don't want it to always replicate my screen. I'm searching for software that is similar to what you can find on RGB peripherals. where I can choose and costumize the lighting effects and more. Ambibox has a RGB spectrum function but I want options more like on peripherals as I said. Additionally it also would be nice if it'd have somekind of music mode. Ambibox also has one but it is realy bad, I assume because it's not build for that purpose. A dedicated software for that purpose would be better I assume, so let me know if you have one for me
  2. Hello everyone, My specs are: i5 4670k 8gb ram gtx 1060 144hz samsung 1080p monitor I mostly play titanfall 2 and that for a long time now. A few months ago I was getting really close to 144 fps on my pc but now my performance isn't that great anymore. I'm currently getting around 100fps even though I haven't touched the settings at all. my Nvidia drivers right now are version 399.07 is there any recommended version for best performance? If yes how do I get it? I've disabled some of the windows effects in order to get better performance. I might consider overclocking my GPU but that is more of a plan b. It won't give me that much of a performance boost

    SSD dimensions?

    and what size is that?

    SSD dimensions?

    does anyone know if all 2.5-inch SSDs are the same length and width? mine is 10*7 cm
  5. Hello, I want to build my own DIY Ambilight. I plan on using 5m of WS2811 RGB LEDs and an Arduino nano connected to my pc in order to control the lights. I've seen many videos of people explaining how to build one and what software to use. But there are like 3 different (for what I know) applications and I have no idea which is the best for me. 1.screen grabbing. So it changes the lights according to what's on the screen. (It'll run on an old pc so an optimized version would be best 2.I want it to also support audio visualization. This can also be a separate program and it must get the audio from an external mic (the music won't run on the pc). I'd prefer a program that actually separates Lows, Mids and Highs and that I can choose "lighting zones" according to them. (Like shown in this video or this) 3. I am going to put the strips behind my tv and under it (see picture). During Ambilight mode, the strip under the tv will be showing the same as the bottom of the tv ( see picture). I also want the Tv LEDs to show mids and high and under the tv to show Lows. NOTE: If there is no program that supports audio visualization via a mic connected to the pc then its also possible for me to buy a Mic mod for the Arduino nano (For example this one ) But I prefer not to use it because it's more wiring and so on. Bonus question: Are ws2811 leds addressable 1 by 1? I've seen some videos where it looks like they can only be controlled in pairs of 3 (maybe because its 1 IC for 3 leds?)

    PSU for LED strips

    Okay. This means I need the WS2811 LEDs if I'm correct. These use 12v. I've checked and you're right. It's way cheaper. Not only the PSU but also the Strip itself. But if I'm correct there's only one 1 ic unit for 3 pixels and that means that I can change the lights only in pairs of 3? (meaning the transitions won't look that good?). And does it mean that I also need another PSU for the Arduino because it's 5v and the PSU is 12v? or maybe I can power it using the USB cable? Thanks for helping me!

    PSU for LED strips

    Hello, The upcoming question is for people who know a little bit about Power consumption calculation, Addressable LEDs and PSUs. So this is what's going on: I want to build an Ambilight for my living room TV. I've found that the WS2812B LEDs are best suited for my need. I also need this https://goo.gl/99wSJ8 controller for it so far everything is fine. I need about 5 meters of a strip with each meter using 18w. The strip I've found functions at 5v. Here's the listing: https://goo.gl/Yf97jn. It says it uses 18w/meter and needs 5v. My question is what power supply do I need? My calculations are: 18w/m for a 5m strip= 90w Using a 5v connection mean 90w/5v= 18 amperes Giving 20% headroom means 181.2=21.6 ampere the closest power supply I've found on Aliexpress is 20 ampere or 30 amperes. Given the price difference is only 3 dollars I think the 30amps version is the best. The PSU I've found: https://goo.gl/acju3W BUT It sounds SOO much (22 amperes) for just an LED strip. Is my calculation correct? Am I doing any mistake here? NOTE: I've found some old power supply I used for some older LEDs I've used once. It has 12v 3 amperes (see picture). If I'd want to use it I'd need to buy the WS2811 Strip (it uses 12v) but again let's say I need 4 meters. SO: 4m with 18w/m= 72w 72w/12v=6 ampere 61.2 (20% headroom)= 7.2 This is more then twice the amount of the power supply I have and if I understand correctly the WS2811 can only control every 3 diodes separately. Will it still look good? I think I'm kind wrong with everything so please help me.

    Gainward gtx 1060 6gb high temps

    Hello, I've just upgraded my pc fans due to the airflow being low and making my gpu run hot. I added 3 more fans making it 4 in total. I've put the case fans on their maximum speed and the fan curve of my gpu is also really aggressive ( as soon as I start playing a game they start running on 100%) even with all that I get high temps about 75 degrees C average during normal gaming (non synthetic) the game I am playing is paladins . Is that normal with so much cooling? and yes I have checked that the gpu and case fans actually work on 100%. the air coming out of my case isn't hot at all. The gpu un modified. The case I have is the cougar mx330.
  10. Hello, I was using sony vegas pro 15 for some time and I didn't have any problem with it. Today I installed magic bullet looks and even when I don't use it, I have a small watermark on my video (not the big red X) it's a small square and in it is written "Vegas" I couldn't find anything online. I need help because I have a whole project but I can't use it with the watermark. Here is a picture of it:

    Hello, I have a gainward gtx 1060 basic edition (nothing special) can I oc it without voiding the warranty? I am planning on only using msi afterburner and nothing else.
