  1. I understand that wireless connections can't be truly lag free, but when it's less than 50ms lag we're talking about it still is very close. I would love to get that low latency when using my computer while still being able to connect to my phone. Are there any headsets all of you know of that has both bluetooth and 2.4Ghz connectivity?
  2. I have rescently been looking for a wireless headset because I'm so sick of getting cables tangled up in everything. I want a close to lag free headset that I can use for both my pc and my phone (android). As I understand it you most times have to choose either, lag free or connectivity between both devices. Bluetooth headsets can connect to most things, like laptop, phone etc, but also has alot of lag. "Lag free" headsets on the other hand often needs a USB dongle, and therefore not being able to connect to a phone. I have seen some videos on youtube that delays the sound to simulate audio lag and I don't seem to notice the delay when the delay is less than 100ms (which I found surprising since that is equal to about 6 frames at 60Hz). I have tried my friends bluetooth headsets and they have very noticeable lag (300-400ms). The headsets I have looked at are the Steelseries Arctis 7 and Corsair HS70, but both of those need USB dongles. The Steelseries Siberia 840 seems to have both bluetooth and lag free connections, and costs only about 10$ more than the Arctis 7. The addition of the swappable batteries is also very nice. Are there any other headset any of you would recommend in this sort of pricerange (~150$) that offer low latency and good connectivity (i.e. laptops and phones)?
  3. I'm not 100% sure that this is the right place to ask my question, but it is related to my programming. I want to have a 20% chance for something to happen, which I can increment each time it happens. The way I have implemented this into my code is that I use a function to create a random number between 1 and 100 (I don't know how this number is calculated, but it seems random), then check if that random number is smaller than, or equal, to my variabel (20). My question is, would this produce an output that comes through 20% of the time?
  4. Looks like we will be using Autodesk programs, like Maya, and probably some others as well. The spec requirements for the BA in Animation says that 16GB is the minimum and that 32GB really is preferred.
  5. Yes, I am going to use it in school and at home.
  6. I have to bring my laptop to school. I would have built a desktop if that was an option.
  7. The 1060 laptop only ships with 16GB (2x8GB and no empty slots). Upgrading it to 32GB myself would actually cost 330$ USD.
  8. I don't know which programs we are going to use yet.
  9. I have to buy a laptop for my studies. I have been looking at some laptops with 1060s and 1070s. Both laptops have a 7700HQ and 32GB of RAM (Optionally 16GB). I live in Norway and laptops are generally expensive. Laptop with 1060: GTX 1060 6GB, i7-7700HQ, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD, 32GB RAM (2600 NOK/330$ USD less for 16GB version) 32GB version - 16,330 NOK (roughly 2070$ USD) 16GB version - 13,730 NOK (roughly 1740$ USD) Laptop with 1070: GTX 1070 8GB, i7-7700HQ, 512GB SSD, 1TB HDD, 32GB RAM (800 NOK/100$ USD less for 16GB version) 32GB version - 19,790 NOK (roughly 2500$ USD) 16GB version - 18,990 NOK (roughly 2400$ USD) Is the 1070 worth the extra money for animation and rendering? And would I regret buying a laptop with 32GB of RAM instead of going for the cheaper 16GB option?
  10. Sometimes when I turn my pc off with sleep mode, I get a beep error message when I start it again some hours later. It is the same 3 short beeps every time it has happened. I have a Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 motherboard. It says on Gigabytes website that 3 short beeps means "basic memory 64K address check error". Why does this happen and what does it mean? I have 4x4GB DDR3.
  11. This might be in the wrong subforum, but it was the closest I coul find. I don't know much about electronics, so this might be a really stupid question. I know that batteries have a rated voltage, like regular AA batteries are rated at 1.5 volts and li-ion batteries are typically at 3.6-3.7 volts. The battery's voltage drops during use, and a dead AA battery is around 1.2 volts. Let's say that I have a device that requires 1.5 volts to operate, but how does it even work at all? I know this sounds dumb, but I just can't get it, because the battery's voltage drops when it is used, so how can it still work when the voltage is lower?
  12. The Corsair Carbide Quiet 400Q is actually smaller than the Eclipse P400S albeit a little more expensive. I also made a little chart for some of the EATX cases I found that compares the size.
  13. The In-Win is too pricey for me and the Corsair 780T is not sold where I live. This one is also too expensive for me. The Phanteks Eclipse P400S is the smallest I have found so far (46L vs 76L of the HAF X), and it is not as expensive as the others.
  14. The system i currently have is built in the Cooler Master HAF X and it is just too big, and also not very quiet. There are lots of smaller cases than this one, but many of those can't fit the huge EATX motherboard i have. Does anyone know about a smaller case that would still have room for the motherboard? It would be nice if it was quieter too, but it's not a requirement. In hindsight I see that going for an EATX motherboard was a bad idea. Now that I want a smaller case I have to settle with a smaller but still big case. Either that or buy a new motherboard which makes me buy a new CPU which makes me have to buy new RAM. A new CPU, motherboard and RAM can be quite expensive.
  15. I did the same benchmark as before, both 800 Mhz and 400 Mhz in Afterburner. I used the Afterburner hardware monitor this time and it showed me 800 Mhz... both times. It appears that the underclocking did not actually affect the memory speed. I reduced it from 800 MHz down to 400 MHz, but nothing actually happened. That explains why the benchmark showed very similar results.
