  1. It appears to be driver issues, however after contacting HyperX about it (and after some debugging) they said it was probably due to windows. Having reset windows and not being able to fix it, I'm currently waiting for Microsoft to respond and have them take a look at the issue. However, many people seem to have a similar problem and aren't able to fix it, so I'm putting my money (quite literary) on buying a new headset/headphones (or at least I am looking for alternatives).
  2. I have had my HyperX cloud's for almost 2 years and I really loved them. However as of lately I am experiencing full PC crashes with them. This is why I am considering to buy a new headset/headphones. Like I said I really liked them, so I would ideally get something similar. Requirements are: Equal/close to equal sound quality Some form of volume control on the headset/cable Either a very long cable (around 2.5m) or wireless. Either 3.5 or USB would be fine, however I liked the usb with soundcard/3.5mm jack HyperX went with. Not from hyperX (to make sure I don't get the same problems) Microphone isn't required, I am thinking of buying a separate mic. Two notes with this though: If it has a mic, I would like to have a mute switch. If it doesn't have a mic I would lower my budget to 60-70 euro ish to get a mic. Bullets in bold are a necessity Price would preferably be around 80-90 or 60-70 euro (Europe) if it doesn't have a mic. I do not care for 7.1 surround, nor for a good mic. Even if it has a mic, I might upgrade later down the road to a dedicated one so it just has to work decently without absolutely deafening my friends, but that is about it. Active noise cancelling would be nice, but I understand that for the budget it would be hard to find.
  3. I have a PC that is places such that any cable's running from it's I/O are very visible. To combat this, I would like to use an USB-hub to hook up my peripherals and other wires. My peripherals and additional wires include: Mouse (Logitech g502 hero) keyboard (some odd cheap keyboard) Wireless receiver (from the steam controller) this one is optional, but I prefer to use this as it allows easy switching between laptop and PC Headset (Hyperx cloud II) VR headset (Oculus Rift S) not plugged in all the time* Occasional random usb device (never really more than one) LAN cable *Note that the Oculus also requires a display port. What would be the best USB-hub configuration? So how I see it I would group my mouse, keyboard, LAN cable and headset together. The wireless receiver I could leave on my PC and it (obviously) doesn't have any wire, so I could hide it behind another cable. This USB-hub (with Lan input) I could leave out of sight and stick to my desk with some tape. Then I could run a second USB-hub with a display port input to the front of my desk which I could use to easily plug and unplug my VR headset, plus the cable would be more easily managed when playing VR. The USB ports on this hub could also be used when not playing VR to hook up any USB devices that I'm not feeling like plugging into my front I/O. However, does this work? I'm pretty sure the USB-hub behind my desk would be fine, but is it even possible to hook a VR headset up to a USB port instead of plugging it directly into my GPU? What would you consider to be the optimal setup? Again, I'm planning on using as little wires as possible on the back of my PC, ideally with a hub behind my desk to plug in all cables that don't need to be switched regularly and some form of hub on the front of my desk to plug in my VR headset without having to dance with cables behind my PC.
  4. So this might not be entirely correctly placed, but since I assume it would require some code, this was the best place to put this. I recently got a USB flash drive I want to use as a backup for personal files (photo's, documents etc.) and also to have a standard place to put larger files I don't want on low storage devices (mainly movies). To organise this a bit more, I would like to have custom folder icons for all sorts of folders. I figured out I could change the usb drive icon by putting the icon as ''anyname.ico'' and autorun.inf file with the code [Autorun] Icon=anyname.ico Label=USB-drive in the root of the drive. This works fine on all devices. However, I would like to do something similair to other folders on the drive (and subfolders). How can I do this so it would work for all PCs. I'm running Windows 10 (home)
  5. I tried vertical mounting my GPU (case got brackets and PCIE extension cable with it) but it didn't look that great at first glance. I swapped it out because I had to swap my GPU out quite a few times and it was just easier that way. Might try it again do now the build is finished, just to give it another change.
  6. What RGB strips would you recommend?
  7. Hello, I'm pleased to show off my new PC (and first PC I build from scratch. I would like to thank this forum in general (and the people on it) that helped me with all the trouble I've had with it. The specs of the build are: Ryzen 5 3600 CPU GTX 1070 (Aero) GPU Gigabyte Aorus B450 I Pro Wi-fi Motherboard G.skill Trident Z 2x8gb 3600mhz RAM Be Quiet! Pure Power 11 600 watt PSU Thermaltake core P1 case Crusial 512GB 2.5 sata SSD Samsung 500GB 970 evo M.2 SSD One last question I would like to ask: what would you do to improve the look of this PC? I don't mean obvious things like taking of the sticker from the tempered glass (sorry about that) or tidying the cables, but more creative/orginal ideas.
  8. I actually figured out the problem, which was slightly more obvious then I expected. I was badly informed on my motherboard's compatibility with Ryzen 3rd gen. I thought it meant that it was compatible straight out of the box, BIOS updated and all, but it wasn't. I borrowed my brothers 1st gen Ryzen CPU, updated the BIOS to an update that did support 3rd gen Ryzen et voilla, it works!
  9. Its plugged into the GPU. I used DisplayPort to VGA and HDMI to HDMI.
  10. Hello, today I tried building my new PC but sadly it doesn't boot into the BIOS Lights on the GPU and RAM are on, CPU cooler spins, and all cables seem to be plugged in. However, whenever I turn the PC on, I just get nothing. Specs: Gigabyte B450 I Aorus Pro Wi-Fi AMD Ryzen 3600 Samsung 970 EVO plus 500gb G skill Trident Z RGB DDR4 3600mhz (2x8gb) Be quiet pure power 11 600W CM GTX 1070 (Aero) Hope someone can help!
  11. So as the title suggests, for my first year of university I decided to get a Surface Go. I'm worried I might run out of battery (and can use some additional power anyway) so I want to buy a decent powerbank, as I currently only have a simple 20.000 mah powerbank that does do the trick for charging mobile devices reasonably well, but I need something beefier to power the Surface. I need about 10.000-20.000 mah, around 45W power and it will have to charge via usb-c. Preferably it would also double as a USB hub (would only need like 2 usb-a ports). Small size and low weight would be nice too. Cables don't need to be included (or fixed) but I won't complain if they are. Don't really have a budget, but of course, I would prefer it to be cheap(er). P.S. Sorry if this is in the wrong topic, couldn't really figure out where it belonged.
  12. About 8 hours. From the Netherlands. Like I said, the budget is not that ridged and should be interpreted quite loosely. I never bought a 2 in 1 so I don't know exactly what I would get at <given price point>. if you say I should spend around 700 euro that's fine too. The 500 euro budget I just put there to ensure that no-one would recommend me devices over 1000 euros. The range of 10-13 inch is just what I experienced to be comfortable to have when I don't have lots of room, but 14 inch is fine as long as it compensates by checking other boxes.
  13. Yeah, her I am with the 100th thread about uni laptops, I'm sorry. Lots of students appear to have similar problems, don't they ;). Anyway, I currently have a good gaming laptop (1060, I7-7700hq and 8gb RAM) and soon also desktop (Ryzen 3600, 1070, 16gb RAM) so performance (at least for games) isn't really a concern. I'm looking for a 2 in 1 (so touchscreen and removable keyboard/keyboard that can be flipped around to turn it in a tablet) with the following requirements: Needs to be quick and versatile, so decent boot times Needs to run programs like office (Word Excel etc.), web browsing, video streaming (YouTube, Netflix and alike at 1080p), perhaps some light games if I'm feeling like it (not a main concern, so not super important) It needs to be reasonable small and portable, willing to sacrifice gaming ability for example for lighter 2 in 1's. Screen size should be between 10-13 inch (this is quite important) and weight should be 'reasonable when carrying in a bag all day' Battery should last a day worth of the stated uses (not 24h, just a normal uni day) In terms of storage: ssd either 128gb or 256 would work fine, don't need a hdd. Supports a pen/comes with one Should run full windows I don't really have a ridged budget, I would be willing to spend more on something that checks all or most of the boxes. However, around 500 euro's (living in Europe) would be the target.
