  1. Used Fostex TH-X00 maybe. TFZ series 5 iems are excellent as well.
  2. Nah. Pioneer headphones other than the Se-Master are mediocre. I would go with something audiophile. Sennheiser HD558 is wayy better.
  3. Darkvoice and Modi Uber is my vote.
  4. I had to RMA my AsRock X99 Board 3 times before I got one that worked. I was tight on cash and the AsRock was $120 cheaper than the ASUS.
  5. I switched my insider level to "fast" so I could get the next update, but I haven't gotten it yet. My pc is 3 builds behind the newest one. I guess I'll just have to wait. I called Microsoft about it, but the rep didn't know what the difference was between Ram and Hard Drives were, so that didn't go anywhere.
  6. Xbox's OS is meant to run on their specific hardware. They use a custom APU. You would also need to find a copy of the OS somewhere (duplicate XBOX HDD?) If you can get a copy of the os, and be able to re-write the code to function on a separate GPU+CPU, and work with all of the drivers (usb, video card, etc...) then there is nothing stopping you. I would recommend going with a AMD APU solution for your CPU, as it is most like what the XBOX uses. It's also probably illegal (software and copyright-wise) but who cares when you're having fun!
  7. Oh okay. This never happened on previous builds, I wonder if it can be solved by an update.
  8. Hi, I'm running Windows 10 Insider Build 14251 (scheduled for an update any time now) and I've been experiencing some serious memory problems. Specs: i7 5820k 16gb Adata Z1 DDR4 AsRock X99M Fatal1ty I'm getting this: And then my PC crashes. Black Screen. Sometimes it recovers, but my video driver has crashed, and my second monitor is blank. It reverts to Windows Basic Video Driver. Most of the time I have to press the reset button. It looks like it has something to do with SWAP memory usage. It's usually pegged a 99% when
  9. Ok, I'll check that out. I wonder why didn't that just come set like that from the beginning?
  10. Alright I'll post this there.
  11. Hi, I'm having some issues with sleep on my PC. I'm running the Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14251, although this has happened for awhile now. Specs: i7 5820k Asrock X99M Killer Fatal1ty 16gb Adata Z1 Problems: My NICs are waking my PC up (confirmed w/ "powercfg -lastwake" command). I go into device manager and uncheck the "Allow this device to wake my PC" box on both NICs and click apply. This works for 4-5 days before it just resets itself and I have to do the whole process again. Also, my PC fans (I also assume HDDs, etc...) are not turning of
  12. Schitt Modi 2 But you need an amp with that. You can't plug headphones into a dac.
  13. Sorry for the double post, but the thing I just can't get over is the price of the 425's. At $279 they are a full $100 ($170 at today's price) more than what I paid for my momentums. Do you think they will have better sound quality over my headphones to justify the $100 price difference. I might also sell my Momentums, they're in perfect condition. Edit: I can find them on ebay for $200(used)-265(new).
  14. True. Depends on what computer he is using though. If he is using a cheap laptop, then he probably would benefit from a DAC/amp combo, the sound card on the laptop won't be as good as the DAC in a combo unit. Also, you can adjust gain on the Fiio, and on gain level 6, the standard volume is pretty quiet on my "easy to drive" Momentums, so he'd be fine. The sound card on his pc will prob. be good enough for 99% of users, so i'd save the $80 and not get one. @SweatyWhiteJedi
