  1. First PC was..... 2014? Yeah, has to be. I was 13. Specs (may not be exact, that system is LONG gone now. My memory of 13 year old me is vague. i7-920 Sabertooth X58 Motherboard 8GB DDR3 GTS 450 I have no idea what the PSU was, it was junk Case was okay at best, but it had VU meters in the front panel and I really miss it, no idea what the model was. Blue LED's, VU meters and another gauge that was temperature(?) on the front door, it was an ATX Midtower. If anybody can help me figure out what case it was I would be eternally grateful.
  2. Ive not used one for an overly long period of time, but I used a Surface 3 (non-pro) for a little while and never had issue with the type cover, though I can certainly understand where people are coming from.
  3. Of course this is all opinion, but I am going to disagree. I actually quite enjoy it, but you need a good touchscreen tablet, which the surface book is. With all that said, I would only consider a surface book with the performance base (dGPU). Why not a surface pro? Do you need a 'real' laptop? As in, are you ever going to actually use it on your lap?
  4. I had a system like that. My RAM reseating process went as such: Pull all RAM Clear CMOS Put back in all RAM Remove half of RAM Swap the half I left in for the half I removed Tried the 'incorrect' slots (B slots, not A) Tried one stick of the second half Tried the other stick Tried one stick of the first half Only at this point did it boot, and I never tried putting in the other 3 sticks. I didn't care because what I am doing with that system isnt memory intensive, it is a file hosting server that idles most of its life, so 2GB is fine. For memory stress tests, Prime 95 Large FFT's.
  5. For coffee lake I feel comfortable up until 1.45, but this is hotly up for debate. Really depends on what you can cool, but my 8600k is at 1.4v to get 5GHz all core (mind you that is a 6c/6t part as compared to your 8c/16t part)
  6. With LTT cracking 9 million subscribers and hastily on its way to 10 million, I'm wondering how long we have all been here! So, below link the first LTT video you remember watching that got you hooked on the channel. I'll start.
  7. @Corsair @Corsair Nick Ive seen both of these active recently.
  8. Ehhh... Depends. I eat out pretty often some weeks but not others. Bad week for eating out is ~$50 on food for me, good week is $10 or $20.
  9. Ahhh, I see. A be quiet! Dark Base Pro 900 will suit you very nicely.
  10. Thats a bit harsh, but I agree AMD has a leg up on Intel in some areas.
  11. Depends on where you are, I don't know the NZ market. Usually though? no.
  12. Ah. 9/10 chance a bad display ribbon cable. There is no GPU to fail on that model, as it is baked in to the CPU. The display ribbon cable is very fragile on that model.
  13. What model? That would help us greatly.
  14. That is a very overkill system, though theres nothing wrong with that! Only thing missing is a 1KW PSU! I do take issue with that case, however. RGB is cool, but your components will also no doubt run pretty toasty. Perhaps a meshify S2 with some sexy ARGB fans are in order? I caution against Razer peripherals, as they have an overall poor rep. If you want a full size keyboard, the Ducky One comes to mind immediately as a high quality keyboard with Cherry switches. You could also delete the extra 4TB HDD, as one 6TB drive will be enough. I have a lot of very large games and cannot begin to fill my 4TB JBOD array, nor can I fill up my 8TB networked drive with full system images of every machine I maintain other than my Macbook Air, as well as direct rips of BluRay disks.
  15. It looks to be ATX complaint in size, but with non-standard power, meaning that PSU will be needed unless there is an adapter available.
  16. Best bet will be DVI to DP or HDMI.
  17. All credit goes to TronicsFix, he uses them in all his videos. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfOrKQtC1tDfGf_fFVb8pYw
  18. Just now. Knocked my Logitech G903 on to the ground, and one of the modular buttons fell off. Cannot find it ?
  19. Uni student here. Get the thinnest and lightest laptop you can find with the performance you need. I currently have a last-gen Macbook Air and am very happy with it (though I will be upgrading to a 15" MBP eventually.) Anyways, your back will thank you for getting a very light laptop. I used to carry an XPS M1730... Though not the heaviest laptop I have ever had, 11 pounds is nothing to scoff at... EDIT: Of those 3 laptops, LG Gram for sure.
  20. Their fault was not saying the Surface having the best keyboard, the fault was pushing an opinion as fact without prefacing it with an "eye-emm-oh". I personally quite like Microsofts keyboards, but I am also part of the minority who like Apple's Butterfly switch so shrug.
  21. Something like this would suit you far better. I have heard nothing but fantastic things of it.
  22. Few corrections. Im not sure where he has those clocks from, don't take them with much more than a grain of salt. Your card may be able to do better than this, or may not be able to overclock at all. Power setting does help performance in 2 days. One, a higher power target may allow the card to clock higher on its own (I have never messed with the 900 series, but I know Pascal and Turing do this). Also, simply cranking the power and voltage settings have literally 0 negative side affects. Lastly, the 970 is getting a little long in the tooth. Any plans to upgrade soon? You're missing out on quite a bit in power efficiency if literally nothing else.
  23. Kind of a tight budget, but are you OS specific? You can sneak in a last gen 2014 or 2015 Macbook Air that will suit you quite well, I use mine for Windows virtualization, GIMP, and DaVinci Resolve, it holds up quite well.
  24. Neither Kalories nor Calories have a calculation, but 220LBS is 15.7 Stone, my apologies.
