  1. I already have a dedicated desktop computer. That being said most of my work these days has to be done while I am on the go. Hence the need for something portable and powerful. I do a lot of work with the Adobe and Autodesk suites and when it comes to games I like playing TF2, LOL, Borderlands, Far Cry, Battlefield, Witcher, etc.
  2. Hello, I am looking for a new laptop and recently I have been looking at Lenovo laptops in particular. I need a laptop that works both as a gaming machine and as a workstation. I like what Lenovo offers as far as their Thinkpad line (design, features, etc.); that being said I don't know how well these devices will stack up as gaming machines. Are there any Lenovo laptops in their Thinkpad line that would be sufficient for gaming (performance comparable to an RTX 2060 or GTX 1070)? Thank You

    Laptop Recommendations

    The budget max is $2000 and a minimum spec of RTX 2060/GTX 1070.
  4. Hello, Does anybody have any recommendations for a current or next gen 15" or 17" gaming laptop that still has a numpad? Thanks

    Intel Wireless Adapter PROBLEM

    Hello, Recently my driver update software updated my wireless network adapter driver to "Intel Wireless-AC 9560 160 MHz," and ever since my internet access through WiFi has been slow, and each time I turn the laptop on it forgets the wireless network. For whatever reason the driver data was removed so I can't roll it back to "Intel Wireless-AC 9560" through the device manager. Does anybody have a clue how to fix this? Windows update and Intel PROset Wireless/Software and Drivers seem to just continually reinstall the (I'm assuming corrupt) "Intel Wireless-AC 9560 160 MHz" driver. I have been trying to find the old driver file or package so I change it back manually but I can't find it anywhere. Any help you can provide would be much appreciated. Thanks A lot

    Looking for ASUS GX531GM

    As opposed to what?
  7. Hello, I'm in the market for a new laptop and I decided on the ASUS Zephyrus S. However I was looking to grab the lower spec version with the GTX 1060 (GX531GM). However, I can't seem to find it anywhere. Has it released yet? Is it temporarily sold out? Any info you have would be appreciated. Thanks

    Good Modem & Router Combination?

    Hello, I have been looking for a new modem and router for my new residence. I am getting Xfinity 150 mbps download. I was thinking of purchasing the NETGEAR CM600 (24x8) DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem and the NETGEAR R6700 Nighthawk AC1750 Dual Band Smart WiFi Router. Are these products going to work well together? Is there going to be any substantial bottleneck anywhere? Will these products last fairly long? I do a lot of gaming on PC and will have people playing on Wifi, will these suffice? Will these be okay as far as ping and latency are concerned (yes, I know it has more to do with the connection rather than the products for ping)? Thanks for your help

    Desktop Stereo Speaker Setup Help

    Hello, I was planning on purchasing a pair of Edifier R980T 4" Active Bookshelf Speakers and plugging them into my FiiO E10K USB DAC. My headphones are plugged into the primary 3.5 mm headphone jack and the speakers would be plugged into the secondary. Is there some way I could add an in-line on/off switch so I could turn them on/off without having to reach around in the back. The reason being is sometimes I want audio coming just through my headphones and not my speakers. Thank You

    MSI Afterburner OSD Not Working

    Update: I tried creating custom profiles in RivaTuner so that it would work with the .exe files for the respective games. Unfortunately it didn't work. I also just updated my graphics driver.
  11. Hello, I am using the MSI Afterburner and RivaTuner combo for my in-game on screen display (OSD). For whatever reason the OSD simply does not work whenever I launch a game directly from Steam like Team Fortress 2 or Torchlight 2. However, games that launch from other applications like Origin or My.com still work. Does anyone know how to fix this? I have attached photos of my MSI Afterburner and RivaTuner settings. Thank You

    Minimize ThrottleStop to Tray

    I am running Windows 10 version 1803 Build 17134. I have another just general ThrottleStop question. I undervolted my laptop enough that not only did it simply stop throttling but also enough so that it also significantly reduced the maximum turbo boost frequency of the cpu. Does the option on the main window "Disable Turbo" do the same thing?

    Minimize ThrottleStop to Tray

    Also it seems to always keep windows from shutting down or restarting. I have to manually exit out of it in order for my laptop to shut down or restart. How do I fix this too?
