  1. ¹ Nope. Any actual router suggestions that aren't ceiling mounted?
  2. My family hates that idea. The women think it'll look AWFUL. Theres no convincing them. Anything else?
  3. I live in a house of about 2500 square feet. It's two floors. We own a Netgear router that I thought would be good enough for the whple house, but the upstairs end rooms have no signal. I think our walls are either really thick, or are made of something that resists the signals. Would buying a router that's designed for a larger space help this situation? If so, can anyone recommend a good router? We currently pay for 200mb/s bandwidth, and have 4 in our household. Sometimes 5.
  4. I'm a photographer. Instead of building a separate DAS or NAS, it would be cool to keep all my photos, originals and edited on my pc. If anything were to fail, I'd be able to recover them right?
  5. I built a computer recently, but it only has a 1tb 2.5" ssd. I was thinking maybe I'll buy three 3tb hard drives and run it in raid 5... maybe even use a pcie raid controller? I don't know if it's a good or bad idea or even if it's possible, so someone tell me more about this. My specs are: CPU: Ryzen 5 2600x GPU: RX 580 RAM: Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO 16GB 3200mz MOBO: MSI B450 Gaming Pro Carbon Storage: Adata SU655 960gb PSU: Bitfenix Formula Gold 650 Watt
  6. Probably $150 USD but I could be convinced to lgive a little more if it were a REALLY good case.
  7. I was thinking of putting it on my desk with my 25 inch monitor on top of it. Hopefully, a Ryzen 7 3700x and RX 580. I don't care about the exact motherboard form factor it is. By reasonably priced, I meant that there are some pretty freaking expensive cases that don't really have a reason for being that expensive.
  8. I'd like to build a small PC in a case that is relatively thin and sits horizontally. I don't care about the motherboard size, ITX or MATX. I'd like for it to fit a full size GPU, or at least one of those mini Zotac ones. I would like for it to be a reasonable price too. Any good suggestions?
  9. Yes. I need to have an incredibly flat surface, such as a small pane of glass, and several sheets of sandpaper. Starting with a lower grit like 500 or so, I remove the top, nickel-plated layer of my CPU heat spreader. Then I move to a finer and finer grit until I reach 3000-5000 depending on how polished I want it to be. Wet sanding can also be done, which apparently helps in achieving a slightly smoother surface. Did I get everything right?
  10. The explanation was actually pretty good, thanks for the effort. I will definitely try these things before ever considering lapping. Thanks again.
  11. I was pretty sure everything would be fine, I'm just way too paranoid about breaking things. I want to buy one of the new Ryzen 7 CPUs, and want to try some experiments on the CPU I'm giving up, a Ryzen 5 2600X. The cooler I have is a Corsair H150i Pro RGB.
  12. If I were to lap my cpu IHS and the surface of the cooler I have, when putting everything back together, wouldn't the tightness of the cooler against the processor be lessened because the surfaces have been worn down? Or would turning the screws tighter fix that?
  13. If I bought like a B150 or B250 motherboard for it, would that be decent for anything good?
  14. I still have the motherboard, but it's like the lowest of low quality boards... Literally one SATA port, and it has one slot for a maximum of 8 gigabytes of SO-DIMM memory.
