  1. i'm gonna be cleaning my computer today while i install my new drives and that includes reapplying thermal paste. i didn't want to buy a new bottle of isopropyl so i asked my friend if i could use his. he showed me his bottle of isopropyl is expired? it expired on june 2018 and i was wondering if that stops me from using it to clean the thermal paste safely. it's 92% isopropyl.
  2. its in the spoiler in the post so should i pair my new hdd with an ssd instead of getting more ram? will i notice any improvements while using cc apps with an ssd?
  3. i've been recently getting more into photography and videography while tinkering with after effects and photoshop, but i've noticed that those programs are running a lil bit too slow for me. i've been using the same build since 2014 which shall be listed here i was considering upgrading my storage system as my hard drive has been excruciatingly loud ever since the day i got it but it hasn't caused any trouble in terms of containing media. since the drive is somewhat old and on the "lower" side of the quality spectrum i was wondering if it was possible that my drive could play a contributing factor into why both ae and ps are running slow? would a newer/faster drive help that? since money is a little tight as i transition into college soon, i was conflicted on pairing my new hard drive with an ssd as a boot drive and load prioritized programs on there -- such as ps and ae, or upgrade my ram to 16gb. which of the two options would more directly help me use adobe software more comfortably? i'm located in the us!
  4. I have aa raazer bw ultimaate 2014 and as you can tell my aaa's are chattering aand it's getting really annoying lmfaao. It's been doing it for the past 2 months aand I really think its time to get a new one since its annoying to go back on my essaays anad delete the extra a's. I want a quiet mechanical keyboard aaas I'm getting annoyed with these loud ass razer switches. I'm leaning on the cherry mx red switches. I'm looking for keyboards that are under 75ish USD that haave the following: some sort of backlight (would prefer white or rgb, but if it's colored i don't really mind) nothing SUPER gamer-esque style. i saw the ripjaw km780r keyboard and to me it looks aatrocious. usb passthrough would be god-like RED SWITCHES number pad or at least a numpad through function key or whatever
  5. I get fps stutters but FH3 is so much fun

      What settings do you run it on? I'm a bit sketched out because of my RAM and graphics card lol

      judging from the system in your profile it'll do ok. but the game stutters a lot at 60fps or unlocked, so keep it at 30fps

  7. Has this already happened? I'm interested in the game, but I would really like to try it out first.
  8. so you wouldn't recommend buying a 140mm as an exhaust? i was planning on using the 200mm as intake and itll flow throughout the 140mm as an exhaust
  9. I'm making a build for my friend using the Thermaltake Core v21 which is a micro atx board. I plan on using a 212 evo as his heatsink and buying a 120mm fan (I was thinking of a corsair AF120. any other recommendations for same price or lower?) as an exhaust fan since the case only comes with a 200mm fan in the front. I was wondering if this plan would work or would there be a better way to use it, or would a 140mm work better? IIRC, a 140mm can fit on the rear side as well.
  10. oh crap haha. someone said that they used that instead of the usb dongle. thanks!
  11. Definitely plugged in all the way. Pushed as hard as I can without breaking anything and nothing moved. Also on Realtek when they do the test for the left speaker, I hear it on my right ear. Then when I hear the test for the right side, I also hear it on my right ear, but it sounds farther away I plugged it in through the USB dongle again and the sound is fine.
  12. For a while, I've been using my Clouds 2 through the USB dongle. I've been told it has a much better sound quality if I used the splitter and plugged it in that way. I tried it and I can only hear with my right ear. I tried flipping the splitter and with that, I can hear on the left side but not the right side lol. I restarted my computer but that didn't change anything.
  13. A splitter is included in the hyperx clouds would it be the same quality if i used the splitter included and plug it into my audio and mic passthrough on my keyboard?
  14. What's wrong with it? I've had my Cloud 2's for a while and has been connected through the dongle
