  1. Hey guys, this is kind of a stupid question and most likely not solvable. I've got a Logitech G900 on 1000 DPI and I'm used to it and I'm not willing to change it up. Today I bought an ergonomic (slightly tilted) mouse that is capable of 800 or 1600 DPI. Is there any way to change the input speed for the second mouse so it matches the 1000DPI of my G900 (at least in software)? My weird plan is to switch to the ergonomic mouse on the desktop (starting to feel some wrist problems and I wanna prevent anything worse) and G900 when gaming. Pls Help = )
  2. I'm sorry for the spam I'm too dumb for multi quotes. That sounds like the best idea. Thanks and have a nice one
  3. I've looked into Suunto but it's not for me. I don't like the look of the small display in the 3. 5 is not my look at all and 7 and 9 are too expensive. But I liked the simplicity and and price of the 3.
  4. I would like to be able to pay with the watch and Samsung Pay is still not enabled in Germany. Having an always on display and the ability to pay is pretty much my requirement. ~ 2 day battery life would be a nice extra, tho. (weird to say that when a normal watch lasts a year...) I don't know which phone I'm getting, yet but I'm kinda annoyed by the brands. I don't really like Samsung anymore and Huawei is a big nono for the next one. Got my P30 Pro like 2 weeks before the China drama. That's why i thought I'd just get the newest Pixel generation.
  5. Which Fossil watch? I've looked into the 5th Gen but the reviews are really mixed. Many report bad battery life and I'm hesitant to buy a Watch that survives a day with a good battery. Don't wanna experience a 2 year old one.
  6. You're missing a link i guess. I don't know which fans you are referring to with "these fans." But the AIO and the GPU are on the quieter side compared to reference cooler designs. The Corsair RM series is unnoticeable and one HDD should not be a problem. However, it is hugely dependent on your settings. Are you overclocking? If yes, how much? Do you use silent profiles and accept higher temps or do you wanna rock 60°C max? Let's put it like this. Your setup, depending on your four fans, could be really quiet.
  7. My Samsung Gear S3 is on it's last legs, I have to restart it multiple times a day because the screen goes beserk mode and only shows flickering white and the battery isn't up to par anymore. I am currentily using an Huawei P30 Pro and I'm planning to get a Pixel in my next contract period. What (Wear OS) Smartwatch would you recommend?
  8. Well, the die hat LM on it before I changed it to Kryonaut because I thought it's time to replace it but the old LM looked perfectly fine and I did not smear a pea sized ball on the die but i covered it. I don't think the heat transfer from die to cooler is the problem, because it can go to 27°C w/o load. It spins with 2500 RPM (Chassis 4 in the video), can the block still be gummed up?
  9. Kryonaut is the non LQ thermal compound and I applied plenty and checked the contact on both sides of the IHS. The voltage maxes out at 1.296, which is not that high and it still reaches 100° in a matter of seconds on 4.3GHz. I'm gonna swap the SilentLoop out for a Noctua U12S and see if that changes things. Thanks for the tips, tho ?
  10. Few days ago my CPU started to behave weirdly, the temperature is pretty much perfectly bound to the wattage. There is no heat buffer of any kind. Use the CPU and it jumps into thermal throttling in 2 seconds, release the load and it's back to 50°. I replaced Intels TIM and thermal paste with Kryonaut. Double checked the spread of the goop and set my bios back to defaults. Fans and pump running normally. Still no change. I use a (now cleaned) SilentLoop 360 to cool the CPU and it gets fresh air from outside the case. Here's a clip of the action after my applied "fixes" with stock CPU s
  11. I don't know, that's hella weird.
  12. My bad, i just looked at the picture of the case and it looked really wide. Spec sheet says CPU cooler ≤155mm, though, and Noctua quotes a height of 165mm. And don't understand me wrong, if you get 3600MHz instead of 3000 at the time you buy for 10 bucks difference, go for it. But in my experience it's not as stable/working as you expect. My Corsair Vengeance Low Profile 3000MHz did not run stable at that speed and I hat to turn it down to 2900 (With 8700K and Maximus Hero X board).
  13. Heavily dependent on the position of the fan. Static pressure fans are usefull with radiators or thick air filters. If they are not in that situation you should try returning them and install the AF120 or some Noctuas. Most modern Mainboards are able to control 3pin fans over DC voltage control in the BIOS. And depending on your case, you could go for 140mm fans as well, they run way quieter at the same cf/m
  14. If 1 TB is enough for the near future and you only play singleplayer games, I would take the Samsung and rip through loading screens with nearly double the read speed and tripple IOPS. The speed is not relevant for multiplayer games, though. There is always someone with a HDD or normal SSD you are waiting for. If you see yourself needing more than a TB, go for the Intel.
  15. No. ICue s*cks balls. I gave up on it after it crashed literally any time i changed any setting. It saved the change but it crashed and when it ran it used 2 to 3% of my I7 8700K for no apparent reason. Btw, 17 fps means each frame is on screen for more than 50ms, I am quiete sure you would not notice the difference between 500Hz and 1000Hz. If you want to controll your RGB and have your 17fps, use 500Hz pulling rate for your mouse. Ps: I switched from 1000Hz to 500Hz a few weeks ago, to get roughly an hour more out of my Logitech G900 wireless mouse and I can't feel any difference, eve
