  1. Yeah if I ended up going the sound bar route I was thinking something like the Yamaha YAS-209 https://www.amazon.com/Yamaha-YAS-209-Wireless-Subwoofer-Bluetooth/dp/B07T5GGR8L since I think that is the most it makes sense to spend on a 2.1 sound bar; I've had a $700 one that just sounded ok, certainly not worth $700. The reason I mentioned the stereo setup as an alternative was that I was hoping stereo receivers might not be as much of a pain as AVRs like you mentioned (if anyone can speak to this please let me know). I also don't really have an advantage with an AV setup since I will likely
  2. Hey guys, I'm looking at getting a new TV setup and I'm curious what you guys run for audio. I hate to say it but my first reaction is to just get a soundbar because I haven't had great experiences with AV receivers for tv's in the past. I find they don't always work seamlessly with TV's and inputs from cable boxes, they often don't turn on with the TV correctly, or get all messed up when changing between audio sources. At the same time, I would appreciate the sound upgrade from using a decent stereo setup over a soundbar, and I'm interested what you all have to say and what your recommendat
  3. Yeah its possible you accidently loosened something while you were cleaning.
  4. Thanks for the input, I haven't had much luck finding people who have tried both and sadly there isn't a store near me that carries them so I can't try them myself. Could I ask what you preferred about the aeron? just generally more comfortable?
  5. I was looking at that as well since many say it is extremely comfortable, but I've also heard the build quality is not as good as Herman Miller which is why I was leaning towards them.
  6. I'm looking at getting a new desk chair, budget is not a concern as it is something I will get a lot of use out of. I have been trying to decided between the Herman Miller Aeron and the Embody - has anyone sat in both?
  7. The meshify C is definitely a better choice for cooling, as far as cases go its pretty decent and will cool just fine. However, the other case I would say is generally below average for cooling. I would definitely recommend the meshify out of the two.
  8. Sounds exactly like what you are describing, it is a fan that has too much play and is clipping the grate.
  9. It won't adversely affect your monitor but I don't see an advantage to under-clocking your monitor's refresh rate. You might as well leave it at 165hz and if you don't get that many frames there is no issue with that.
  10. Out of curiosity what makes you say that? From past generations? Benchmarks for the 3000 series cards show that the tuf coolers are on par with competitors.
  11. Do you just want to do it for fun? Its definitely not worth trying to mod
  12. That's true, but most games have a setting where you could set the max framerate to your monitors refresh rate. This would be more ideal because you don't want your framerate jumping all over the place, it makes the game feel not smooth and its not a good experience. In short, a 1650 super certainly isn't overkill for todays games if that's what you are asking.
  13. Haha not to be rude, but I'm guessing your're new to computers? There's no advantage to staying under your monitors refresh rate. In fact in a perfect world you would never want your framerate to drop under your monitor's refresh rate.
  14. Looks pretty good, there's a chance it might not work but I doubt it would destroy your cpu.
  15. Sounds like you had a short. Some manufactures use a different pinout for cables, definitely don't use the power supply with the corsair cables.
