  1. Hi everyone, I have 6 LL120 fans. I have all 6 RGB headers connected to the lighting node and a Thermaltake Commander FP. Now the problem is that random individual LED's flicker on and off at random times. First I thought it was a faulty fan but since it happens to all fans I doubt they are all faulty since. Sometimes 2-3 fans just completely turn of the lights for a second. Even the lighting on the cpu block of my H100i keeps changing color or flickering. The only things that are behaving like they should are my RAM (Vengeance RGB Pro) and 1 fan (it's connected to slot 1 of the lighting node). Also, iCue doesn't seem to be able to properly drive or connect the rgb lighting of the fans. For instance, when I want to edit the fan colours, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. If I want to disable all fan rgb lights it still keeps 1 or 2 led's burning. So I basicly have no real controle over the lighting. I've tried installing the older iCue software but that didn't help. Anyone have an idea of what I could do to solve this problem or the best way to troubleshoot this. The only other lighting software I have is Asus Auro for my graphics card and motherboard but those are both set to a static color and the software isn't running at the moment. Regards
  2. Okay thanks. When I hover over the battery icon it says "Best performance", the slider is all the way to the right. But even loading an explorer window isn't as snappy as you would expect. It always takes a split second to load.
  3. But it can't be that I'm supposed to have slow performance and a cpu that doesn't clock higher than +- 1.2 Ghz on battery? It pretty much makes any real work sluggish and downright uncomfortable.
  4. Hi everyone, I currently have a Dell Inspiron 7590 with an Intel i7 9750H, 16 GB single channel, 512 GB ssd. Now when I have it plugged in with the charger it gives the performance one could expect from those specs. But when using it on battery it's slow in response and far from snappy. It keeps the cpu anywhere between 800 Mhz and 1.4 Ghz. I know that the cpu runs at lower speed when on battery, but it won't even boost up when under heavy load (such as running multiple vm's). Even opening explorer windows isn't snappy when using the laptop on battery power. Battery life is all good and well, but I would rather have the performance and have it boost higher than having a slow laptop that can run on battery for half an hour longer. The power plan in the control pannel is set to "balanced", and when I hover it over the battery icon in the task bar it says "high performance". Is there any setting I should adjust to have it boost higher on battery to get good performance?
  5. Hi everyone, I have 6 fans in my case: 4 x LL 120 2 x ML 120 (that came with my H100) I have all 6 RGB headers connected to the lighting node and connected the fans as following: 2 LL fans are connected to my H100 and the other 4 fans (2 x LL and 2 x ML) are connected to a Thermaltake Commander FP. Now the problem is that random individual LED's flicker on and off at random times. First I thought it was a faulty fan but since it happens to all fans I doubt they are all faulty since. Sometimes 2-3 fans just completely turn of the lights for a second. Also, iCue doesn't seem to be able to properly drive or connect the rgb lighting of the fans. For instance, when I want to edit the fan colours, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. If I want to disable all fan rgb lights it still keeps 1 or 2 led's burning. So I basicly have no real controle over the lighting. I've tried installing the older iCue software but that didn't help. Anyone have an idea of what I could do to solve this problem? I think the Lighting Node itself is defect. Regards
  6. I don’t really use the webcame anyway, but the nosecam placement bothers me in some way. I’m from belgium, I’ve got a budget of arround 1500€ (1700$) but it can stretch. The one I have now weighs just above 3 lbs but I don’t mind if it’s a bit heavier. Battery life should be at least a couple of hours (arround 6 sounds like an nice number).
  7. Hi everyone, due to a change in interests I am looking for a new laptop to replace my current MacBook pro 2016 touchbar. Use I recently started new studies and will be performing the following tasks: - programming in java, c#, python, php using programs such as Visual Studio, Intelij, Pycharm,... - run VM’s, sometimes 2 or 3 at a time - I use photoshop once in a blue moon or so - everyday tasks, office, browsing Why I’m switching I am tired of the keyboard and poor touchpad drivers under bootcamp. Although the build quality and screen overall is great I find myself often times anoyed. Also the small hdd space is givong me headaches. And bootcamp can only use the dedicated gpu which causes the laptop to heat up and drain battery. looking for a 15” (or possibly 17”) to help me with this. I am planning on getting a new desktop when the Ryzen 3000 cpu’s are released. In the mean time I’ll hook the laptop up to al external keyboard an monitor when I’m at home. I don’t really mind if the laptop is a few 100 grams heavier, I always travel with car. But I am looking to avoid large gaming laptops. I like the way lenovo laptops type, especially the ideapad. But most laptops only come with an i7 8550u. And I don’t know how it will compare to the 6700hq I have now. The XPS 15 also looks promising but too bad about the webcam placement (although I never use it) and the reported throtteling. But I don’t know how much the throttle would be an issue for me as I am not looking to export video’s and I will not game on this laptop. I am mostly wondering how the 8550u would do performance wise. In benchmarks the 6700hq usually wins but I don’t find benchmarks such as gaming and synthetics comparable with my usecase. I hope I have given enough info and hope to be able to find the perfect laptop for my needs. kind regards
