    Kind of an off topic question but what is the clock that you use under your monitors?
  2. Yeah it seems like Actual Multiple Monitors would have the feature I'm looking for but quite a few other features I don't really need. I appreciate the suggestion though!
  3. Hey there, I've got two monitors setup in extended mode and I'd like to have a slideshow on my primary monitor, and a separate slideshow on my secondary monitor. So a folder of images for each display that they can cycle through. This doesn't appear to be an option in Windows that I can see. At the moment I get a very strange "leap-frog" like selection on the slideshow as shown below (Red is primary monitor, green is second. Numbers are what is shown each cycle): Does anyone know of a way to do this either in Windows or if there are any good 3rd-party applications to do this? Thanks!
  4. Oh cheers mate, I'll look into that
  5. I figured as much, but to clarify what I'm implying is not a laptop, but to dump a PC in a basement or something, and then run a thunderbolt cable up to the room and just have a dongle there where I can interact with the PC.
  6. Lets say that my setup has GPU X, and my motherboard has Thunderbolt 3 support. If I use an HDMI adapter from that thunderbolt port, will the GPU be used as the device powering graphics? I would just test this myself but I don't have the setup I just mentioned.
  7. Thanks for the suggestions, I'll probably give the duct insulation a try, I think I have some lying around the house actually
  8. I've seen that Be Quiet has sound dampening foam in their cases, and I would like to get what they use, or at least something similar for my case, but they don't seem to sell it. Anyone got any recommendations?
  9. You were close actually, the sense pin on the fan was frayed, so I soldered it back up and it seems alright for now. We'll see how it goes.
  10. I have an interesting issue in which my GPU fan speeds never come back down once they are at a certain percentage. For example if the GPU turns the fans to 45% they will never go below that until the next restart. Basically if I am playing a game and then exit it, my GPU will remain at 100% fan speed on the desktop at like 20 degrees Celsius. If I manually adjust the speed in MSI Afterburner, the speed will not come down either. Only a restart solves the issue By using a complete graphics driver uninstaller, the fans revert to their proper state without a restart once the driver is uninstalled. After reinstalling the driver the problem persists. What I'm using: Zotac GTX970 mini Gigabyte GA-Z97N-WIFI motherboard
  11. Hey, I'm in an interesting situation where I would like to have one monitor (secondary) display a screensaver and the other one (primary) just turn off after a period of time. Does anyone know of a way or third party app which can let me do this? Yes, you're probably thinking, who uses a screensaver these days? But at the moment I do have a need for this specific situation.
  12. So I've got a Dell Inspiron 15 7000 gaming, and I'm trying to use a headset with it however when I plug it in, it still uses the built in laptop microphone. I've tried: I've tried reinstalling drivers Switching between drivers (Windows Default and Realtek HD Audio) The windows default works the best, it actually switches between audio outputs consistently, however the input device is stuck on the built in laptop mic. Any suggestions? Is there some Dell software crap that I'm missing, it is a clean install of Windows?
  13. Yep those seem about right, plus that is the symbol. I should have realized this, since I have taken the thing apart and the ribbon connecting to that port says "RJ45"
  14. Interesting, but this has 12 pins, I thought firewire 400 looked more like this:
