  1. I recently picked up Beyerdynamics MMX 300 (2nd gen) headset and so far I'm pretty happy with it. Although my mainboard is said to have a decent dac/amp (ESS 9023P) I'm still not sure whether I'm missing out on sound quality on a 300€ headset. So should I get an external DAC/amp combo like the FiiO e10k olympus 2 or is it just not worth it?
  2. I can suggest looking at this wiki since it has all the information regards emulation of consoles (even including the PS4). Here is the site of the wiki about the current standpoint of PS4 emulation.
  3. After getting an external HDD for backing up my PC I went for windows' recovery partition creator. After doing some research I found out that this might not be the best option to backup my whole main drive. Is windows' backup utility fine for a simple backup or should I go for an external program? I definetly want to backup all of my main drive and not specific user-defined files and/or paths.
  4. Basically it is impossible for me to add my gmail account to my Outlook app on my PC because everytime I try to add it and enter my password I get the error "something went wrong". Adding other emails isn't a problem at all - every email I add expect gmail seems to work fine. The most common fix is to enable third-party access on my google account; which I did andit still doesen't work. I've also followed numerous other online tutorials (like applying advanced settings) but it just does not work. On the other hand, adding gmail to my mobile outlook app works just fine. Is there anything I can try?
  5. Let's say both ports support power delivery
  6. Since ECC has got one more chip to "correct", power draw should be slightly higher than non-ECC RAM; but on the other hand server-grade hardware is always made to be as power efficient as possible... What I can say for sure is that in order to save power I'd recommend placing your project into a cold room to avoid high fan speeds and the resulting power draw/noise.
  7. USB is getting more powerful with every iteration, allowing for more power and data to be transfered than ever before. With USB 3.1 (gen 2) it's become possible to draw up to 100 W of power. Out of curiousity I wanted to ask whether it would be possible to overload my power supply by draining too much power via my two USB 3.1 ports on my mainboard. My PSU has a maximum of 750 W and normally I estimate to draw about 500-600 W.
  8. My problem seems to be very common but although there are lots of posts (even on this forum!) I wasn't able to fix it. Basically what happens is that every time I restart/shut down my computer asus aura forgets all the settings. This is especially annoying due to the fact that the standard setting in aura is to have the RGB LED's lit up even after a shutdown (who even thought that this was a good idea?!). So far my approach has been to turn off my power supply every time I shut my PC down but it's painful because I have to crawl under my desk. Some users online suggest turning off fast boot in windows but that also didn't work out for me, neither did updating my BIOS to the newest version nor downloading the newest version of aura from the asus website. How do I get my mainboard to deactivate the LED's after a shutdown? Do I have to deactivate them completely from the BIOS or is there a solution to the software problem? P.S.:I downloaded the newest version of aura from my mainboard's (maximus IX formula) website since that's the only working version; the slightly newer one from the aura website crashes on opening.
  9. I was actually just interested but thanks for all the detailed responses (I don't own a HiFi-Setup which would benefit from high quality sound files)
  10. MP3 reduces music file size by removing certain frequencies from raw music formats like wav. Since MP3 uses a lossy compression algorithm, some data is lost which slightly reduces the quality of the music. Enough theory;I'm asking myself how it's possible for (online) converters to make huge (100 MB) .wav files out of a few megabytes of mp3 since mp3 removes the frequencies? Does the converter simply guess what has been removed or is the extra size added to the file just bulk which doesen't make the music as good as it was before compression?
  11. Whenever I get a new message from Discord (on the computer installed) I click on it in hope of automatically opening the Discord app. But as you may already know or have experienced yourself, Discord won't open. Is there a setting inside the Discord application to enable opening of the program as soon as you click on a notification?
  12. Time for an Update: With some precise fine-tuning inside the advanced settings under the "monitor" tab, I was able to achieve more or less what I originally wanted. The fans now ramp up slower and my PC stays more silent even with higher CPU utilisation. It's still ideal-as many of you pointed out asus definetly needs to get their shit together-but its a beginning. Another thing I'll definetly get when I'll build my next PC with that many fans is a fan controller because it was a pain in the ass to get all fans which are all connected to the mainboard configured more or less equally.
  13. Most of my fans are 3 pin (the ones that came with my case) and some I bought extra (3x to be clear) use a 4-pin connector
