    DC step down converter - charger?

    Oh yeah, I'm not going to wire it directly to battery, I was thinking of wiring it trough the ignition(turns on in acc position). Since this isn't a very high current stuff, I though of using fuse tap(to lazy to pull the fuse box and add a terminal in empty spot ) Ok, so it looks like my idea works, thanks
  2. So I was thinking of adding usb charging ports to my car and I don't really want to buy expensive car chargers to chop them up. Cheap ones don't make sense as they usually can't even supply 2.1A. I was thinking of maybe just getting 12-5v DC step down converter and just basically soldering USB ports with wires to it so I can basically have multiple outlets around the car with only 1 source. I was thinking of something likes this - https://www.ebay.com/itm/12V-24V-To-5V-10A-50W-Car-Step-Down-Power-Supply-Buck-Converter-Module-66/283348479243?hash=item41f8e2ad0b:g:zpgAAOSwRGhcRrNe:rk:4:pf:1&frcectupt=true Anyone has any reasons not to do this? I don't care about QC as my phone doesn't really benefit from it.

    Help bricked mi a2

    Umm....Wrong - when I was installing MIUI on my A2, the usb cable moved and lost connection thus bricking the phone. I could not even enter fastboot or recovery. The way to fix this is open up the phone and use the test points to enter EDL or whatever was that download mode called. That way I successfully brought my phone back to life
  4. Well, it seems like EU is trying to take over the control of the internet - at least in EU. This is disastrous to say the least. It seems similar to what China is doing by squeezing the outsiders out and government having control over all info there is on the net. And of course in my local news sites there wasn't even a mention about this - surprise surprise. Basically China v2. https://edri.org/eu-member-states-agree-on-monitoring-filtering-of-internet-uploads/ https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20180525/10072939912/forget-gdpr-eus-new-copyright-proposal-will-be-complete-utter-disaster-internet.shtml https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20180531/00285739946/eu-parliament-members-play-hardball-terrible-copyright-policies-article-highlighting-sketchy-tactics-magically-disappears.shtml https://eutoday.net/news/business-economy/2018/bitter-row-over-copyright-law-intensifies-ahead-of-key-parliamentary-vote https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/google-news-to-close-down-in-spain-9917032.html https://www.reuters.com/article/us-eu-copyright/eu-states-agree-rules-to-make-search-engines-pay-for-news-idUSKCN1IQ2NS

    HDD power saving?

    Well, the PSU fan is still loud but the HDD introduces some vibrations which are annoying

    HDD power saving?

    Ahh, I don't mind that. I have set up that I only need 1 active HDD and others can just power off because I don't need them all the time. So it looks I'm good then.

    HDD power saving?

    Currently I have the windows configured to turn off HDDs after 10mins not to save power(lol, AMD system here ) but it just makes the system much quieter. Can that have a negative effect on the HDD and its lifespan?

    CPU performing way worse than it should

    When GPU and CPU are under stress it does throttle the CPU a little, but it doesnt when only the CPU is under load and I was testing only CPU when I was benchmarking it so thermals wont be a problem...
  10. Ok, so my friend got Lenovo Y700-15ACZ (AMD 8800P, r7m 385x) and the CPU is 2x slower in benchmarks than his old laptop(i5 5200u, 940m) although it should be ~20% faster according to benchmarks. The GPU performs like it should about 2.5x better. However games run much worse than before. At idle the CPU shows like 30% load although nothing in task manager details tab shows up using that much.... Any ideas? Im sure it has to do something with the windows. PS. Windows is fully updated, running on the fall creators build. It felt like this out of the box before I even updated it.

    Suggestions for router?

    Not sure, but it is cheapo shitty ones that ISPs provide(150mbit wireless with 100mbit wan :D) It restarts quite often when using YT on wireless devices.

    Suggestions for router?

    Hey, I'm finally upgrading my network but I'm not sure what to get exatcly. I'm currently using a pretty shitty solution consisting of 2 tp link cheapo routers. I have 3 wired devices and like 5 wifi devices. The must-have is a good gigabit LAN thats actually can achieve those speeds. Currently I'm looking at MikroTik Hex router and 2 seperate APs because I can't really cover the whole house with only 1 AP or it would be in a very inconvenient place with wires coming to it(ugly). Also there would be a switch in the middle because the 2nd AP would sit in my room... What do you think? Any suggestions?
