  1. Last week I built a PC in the In Win BK644 case. It's missing one of the front I/O covers. This seems like a long shot, but would anyone know where to find this?
  2. I wish that were the case for my school. Microsoft's web apps can be painfully slow.
  3. What do you think my graphics card will be worth in, let's say, January? If I can sell it, I'll upgrade when supply becomes better. https://www.newegg.ca/asus-rtx-2080-super-dual-rtx2080s-o8g-evo/p/N82E16814126354?item=N82E16814126354&source=googleshopping&nm_mc=knc-googleadwordsca-mobile&cm_mmc=knc-googleadwordsca-mobile-_-pla-_-video+card+-+nvidia-_-N82E16814126354&gclid=CjwKCAjw4rf6BRAvEiwAn2Q76nVS4ihAShP0Pw6WT3GI56mkQYLltoFtCh6rP36TAryITynNa4i1vBoC-OwQAvD_BwE
  4. If I don't get it, do I have any other options?
  5. No, the return policy is valid. Does it really sell out that fast? What would my chance be of actually getting one? Also, is there a way to pre-order it?
  6. I bought an RTX 2080 Super, and when the 3080 comes out, I want to return it and buy a 3080. My question is, do stores usually have new cards in stock the day of release? This is my first time looking to buy such a new card, and I don't know how hard it will be to find one. Also, would I have a better chance pre-ordering or buying online? My 2080 Super's return policy ends September 20th, so I want to preferably get one before then.
  7. I currently edit videos with Lightworks and I'm considering switching to the free version of DaVinci resolve 16. If anyone has made a similar switch, what was it like, and would you recommend it?
  8. I have noticed that my Asus Dual Evo RTX 2080 Super does coil whine in games. I haven't ever noticed it before today, though. Is there a possibility that it just started? Could this also be related to the fact that sometimes, when turning it on for the first time in a day, the graphics card doesn't boot properly? (GPU light on the motherboard is on.) The noise is similar to this: EDIT: I have done an hour of research, and I now have different questions. What are the chances of coil whine happening on a graphics card like mine? Should I try returning it and getting a replacement?
  9. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Basically I just have the stuff I most commonly use, and it also serves as a place for me to keep a collection of games next to eachother instead of all over the place on the list.
  10. You don't really need to fully charge it, but it is recommended that you do it once. From what I know, you needed to do it on older-type batteries, but not anymore.
  11. I need to get a good student laptop for cheap. Here are a few features that I'm looking for: Ideally a quad-core Intel Core series processor Upgradable RAM Compatibility with SATA 2.5" drives Good durability Swappable battery That's all. I'm looking to spend about $250 CAD, not including the RAM upgrade or the SSD. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
  12. Is that specific area of the cooler getting good water flow? Perhaps the distilled water or some of the chemicals managed to have some impurities, which ended up in the places that have still water. Edit: maybe try putting the PC on its side so that the stuff can move to an area with more circulation. See if it goes through and flows through the system again, and check if it accumulates again at the same place.
  13. Does it seem like it's a solid-ish blob or just a cluster of loose particles? My first thought is that it's an accumulation of minerals from the water, but since you used distilled water, that may not be true.
