  1. Hello, First some context. I have a desk with a blue yeti on an arm above it. My headphones are directly plugged into the yeti, due to this, I can both hear my computer audio, and monitor the sound of the mic with no latency. My issue is however that I now have my headphone wire hanging form the yeti above my setup. What I would like it some way to have the headphone cables not hanging down from my microphone in front of my screens. What I was thinking was either 'buy an extension cable' and just plug that into the mic and route it behind my screens. The issue I've had with that though, is that there was a lot of noise that wasn't there before on the headphones, (maybe a crappy cable). What I would like to know is. - Is this possible in the way I want? - What would be the kind of cable I am looking for? Thanks for the help in advance. edit: The audio monitor output from the blue yeti mic is a 3.5mm jack.
  2. then i'd probably personally go for the GTX 1660 or GTX1660 TI You could take a look at amd's offering, im however not really well versed in AMD Gpu's
  3. id say either a GTX 1660ti or a RTX 2060 depending on your budget and need for real time ray tracing
  4. I personally use the old version of the H100i on an i7-6700k. It runs like a champ even while overclocked and under full load, my temps don't go above the 70 C I'd say the H100i is going to perform with no problems, even while overclocked.
  5. Yes it's possible by disconnecting drives. I would only recommend this if windows is booting in BIOS mode though. One small addition, if windows does not immediately show up in your grub menu on boot. You might need to boot into Ubuntu first and run the following command "sudo update-grub" This should add windows as a menuentry to grub. I windows boots in UEFI mode I would suggest the following: I pressume you want to use your entire new ssd for linux. When installing Ubuntu (with all drives connected) you will be given the choice of installation type. Here you should pick "Something else" this indicates you want to define your partitions yourself. After that you'll be greeted by a window where you can browse your drives and create partitions. Here you can also find a dropdown that sais "device for bootloader installation", in this dropdown you can either select your windows drive or your new drive. - If you choose to select your windows drive, the installer will install (without touching the windows bootloader) the grub bootloader to the efi partition on your windows drive. this is the way I usually do things and has as consecuence that all bootloaders are in the same place. This however has as downside, might your windows drive ever fail. you will also lose the bootloader for linux and will have to restore it (you don't lose any data, but the process of reinstalling a bootloader isn't a fun one) - If you choose to select your new drive, the installer wil create a new EFI partition on your new drive and install the grub bootloader onto that. This has in my opinion the undesired effect of bootloaders being all over the place. this might be a good choice if either, you want some more redundancy in case your windows drive fails, you don't trust the installer near your windows bootloader or you simply just prefer this way. On to creating the actual partitions, you can decide for yourself what you would like, however ill give you a simple example: Swap partition with the size of your ram And a ext4 partition with mount point / that fills out the rest of the drive. When you press next, the installer will ask you to confirm your changes so you can double check. and if you accept you should be good to go. After this process you should go into your uefi and select ubuntu as your prefered uefi bootloader. Hopefully this awnsers your question. If you have any more questions feel free to contact me.
  6. You can connect to the D and F drives no problem once you've installed linux. You don't have to do anything during install, you can simply mount them once you've entered linux. About installing a dual boot, I need some more information. What distro are you planning to install? Is your windows drive MBR or GTP formatted? (you can find a guide on how to check here)
  7. Hello, A friend of mine has got a new pc. The problem however is that it randomly reboots after some time. The time between reboots is random. Specs: Apu: Ryzen 5 2400g Ram: G. Skill DDR4 Ripjaws V 2 x 16GB 3200 hz Mb: AsRock AB350M Pro4 Ssd: Samsung 960 Evo 250gb Psu: Corsair VS450 Things I've tried: Updating drivers. Updating bios. Checking the motherboard for loose connections. The pc does not give an error message when it reboots. It just seems like it loses power and reboots. The reboots occur randomly, but once they've started they occur more frequently. The max cpu temp under stress is 55 degrees celcius. It does not matter what programs are running. However load does seem to make it occur more quickly. Im at a loss, I've tried everything i could think of. Could someone please help me? Solution: well, this has been quite the ride. After returning both the motherboard and cpu to the vendor for a replacement, they maked the CPU as faulty and replaced it. After this the problems persisted however. Turned out the motherboard was faulty aswell. All problems are now solved after replacing both the CPU and MB. Thanks to everyone who replied.
  8. I seem to have found the problem. My LAN driver uses the Killer control center. This prioritized my internet browser(where I ran the speedtest) very low. Giving my browser a higher priority in the killer control center fixed my connection speed. Thanks for the help.
  9. All tests with the ethernet were done with wifi disabled.
  10. You could try booting from an linux live usb (I usually prefer ubuntu) and if it gets detected there reformat is as ntfs or just remove the formatting for you to see if you can format it from windows afterwards.
  11. Hey everyone, I've got a pretty weird problem, and hopefully someone can help me with it. My upload speed is very slow over ethernet on my laptop. When I'm on ethernet I get upload speeds of 0.8 mbps while I should be getting 4mbps+. Things I've tested. On my desktop I get 5mbps over the ethernet cable. (so no problems there) I switched ethernet cables with my desktop (no difference, so cable is not the problem) I tried different ethernet port on the router (no difference, so port is not the problem) Use vpn on laptop with wifi disabled (i get 4mbps, so it seems a software issue on the side of the laptop) Update lan drivers (no difference) Does anyone know what the problem could be? I seem to have found the problem. My LAN driver uses the Killer control center. This prioritized my internet browser(where I ran the speedtest) very low. Giving my browser a higher priority in the killer control center fixed my connection speed. Thanks for the help.
  12. Probably wol(wake-on-lan) is turned on like others said. If you want to test this. - disconnect desktop from network. - turn on laptop - if desktop still turns on call an exorcist
  13. You can install multiple versions. You however have, if i remember correctly to uncheck a box with 'uninstall previous versions' I Usually use IntilliJ IDEA which has an option per project for which sdk to use.
  14. For my job we have flexible work spaces. This means I usually have a different work space every day. On these workspaces there are monitors with the majority vga connections. Now the problem is that my work laptop doesn't have such a connection. So I bought a mini displayport to vga adapter. However when I plug it in nothing happens. Of course I first thought the adapter was broken. So I tested it with another laptop (different brand, model) but with that it does work(on the same monitor.). My next conclusion was that the displayport on the laptop must be broken. So to test this I took a regular displayport cable and connected it to one of the rare monitors that support it in the office. And it worked. However im at a loss now. Does anyone have an idea as to what is going wrong? Id love some feedback. (I have tried reinstalling the graphics drivers)
