    Sound Mixer

    You would pretty much have to get a multiple output soundcard, map each program to one output each, feed that into a regular mixer, and then feed that signal back into your headphones / speakers post mix. It can theoretically be done but we're talking a lot of money in getting the hardware needed, plus Windows is really shit when it comes to using separate outputs. I know that some programs (media players mostly) allow you to choose what output to use but it's a huge hassle. There are also programs like Virtual Audio Cable that can split up the audio and map to separate outputs.
  2. Normally you'd change your DPI so everything in Windows would be the same when you change the resolution, but in CS:GO the resolution and sensitivity have no correlation. For CS: Keep your DPI the same and you'll play the same. If you decide to change your DPI in order to make Windows feel the same, you can use this equation to get the same sens in CS: DPI * ingame sens = actual DPI if your sens was 1. example: 800 DPI * 1.7 ingame = 1360. then if you change your sens to for example 600, just do this: 1360 / 600 and you'll get the sens you ne

    Do i need an Amp?

    This was a fun read. OP: As long as your headphones get loud enough, there's no need to get an amp. The DT990s (yes even the 250 ohm) are fairly efficient / sensitive headphones and an amp won't make it sound any better unless your current setup is 15 year old onboard audio. Only reason you'd ever need an amp is to make stuff LOUDER. Which is what an amp does.
  4. 595's had a more prominent mid and high range. 598's have less highs and mids, also making the bass stand out a bit more, but they are still far away from something like a pair of M50's or even the HyperX Clouds in terms of bass. OP: I am sure a set of 598s (that you mentioned) will do you GREAT for gaming. They have a really open and wide soundstage, a very user-friendly, laid back sound with decent bass (no basshead headphone tho) However, keep in mind that they are open, so they do not isolate outside sound at all, and your sound (if you're blasting your ears to oblivion) will
  5. everything is user replacable if you can source the parts and use a soldering iron and / or hot glue gun
  6. in one way, yes. they all have hyperthreaded cores. 2 of them. http://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/processors/corei3/sb/IntelCorei3ComparisonChart10.pdf
  7. the toms hardware slides posted in this thread earlier showed that power draw in torture tests were like.. one or two watts under rated TDP. EDIT: in this document, Intel have gotten details from AMD about it.. apparently. screencap:
  8. http://www.overclock3d.net/articles/cpu_mainboard/amd_s_zen_will_have_a_greater_than_40_ipc_improvement/1 Yeah this is what I found.
  9. I did realize that Intel uses torture testing for that, but source for AMDs TDP testing?
  10. http://hothardware.com/news/cern-engineer-leaks-amd-zen-architecture-details-claiming-40-percent-increase-in-ipc-up-to-32-cores Sure it's not AMD-confirmed, but I believe it. At least it's not WCCF. Off topic: I can't use multi-quote for some reason so bear with me.
  11. Alright I will agree, after reading a bit on a document Intel published on TDP. Strange how the 6600K is nearly 20 watts under rated TDP in a torture test though.
  12. You're the only person saying a 6 core + hyperthreading Zen will compete with a 4 core no hyperthreading i5. You're being quite negative about the future of AMD. It's in our best interest, all of us, that AMD actually does well with the Zen series. Don't dismiss them just yet. It's basically their last effort, let's all just hope they don't die. Don't assume they'll kick Intels ass either, just hope they don't die.
  13. Notice how the 6700K is above Intels rated TDP on maximum load, 6600K is under, and AMDs offerings are also under their rated TDP?
  14. Keep in mind that AMD and Intel rate their TDPs in a different way. Intel use a common use case, while AMD is more like.. 100% AIDA64 type thing.
  15. That's why I also mentioned " and they manage to keep clocks at a decent level,"
  16. IF we look at the numbers we have been presented with before (40% more IPC than Excavator), which means the IPC ends up about the Haswell area, and they manage to keep clocks at a decent level, that's a way too low price. a 6 core Zen cpu would outperform an i5, and mainstream i7s with hyperthreading in multithreaded applications, and would be 10-15% behind in single threaded applications, possibly bringing overall performance to about the same level. Should then be priced just a bit lower than a 6700K, in my opinion, and what seems a lot like his opinion as well.
  17. Not sure what you're not understanding. What he's saying is: AMD need to price it according to their performance relative to Intels CPUs. They can't really afford to undercut Intel as they don't have a whole lotta money, while Intel does.
  18. Yeah I did that when I saw that I couldn't just download the ISO. All is well now, Windows 10 has been installed. Thank you!
  19. Looks like the option to just download an ISO straight off MS' site is gone, but the Media Creation Tool thing is currently downloading it for the upgrade through that. Hopefully this one works. I would look you in the eye and thank you but looking at endermen isn't a good idea for noobs like me.
  20. I reinstalled Windows 7 yesterday (as it was the only option I had in terms of what I had lying around on a USB drive), and after some updating issues (which got solved with a Microsoft FixIt thing that I can link if necessary), and then hours of updating, I got the GWX app again. As I actually quite enjoyed using Windows 10 on both my laptop and desktop, I hit upgrade. Then something close to a minute passed, and all that happened was: GWX closed, and Windows Update opened. I've been googling almost all day trying to figure it out, but it
  21. It seems I have solved it by disabling power saving features such as the C6, AMD Cool n Quiet, and some protection thing that "keeps your system from having sudden issues". Seems stable right now. I'll watch a couple episodes of Hunter x Hunter, if nothing happens I'll mark this as solved in an hour.
