    I got a macbook air for school in 2012, built my own pc in 2015, installed Linux Mint on my pc in 2017 and I'm working on a website for school that uses firebase and react :)
    About a month later and I no longer use Linux mint, windows Linux subsystem works with my favorite terminals and vscode, so no need for the Linux desktop anymore, since windows is more convenient for everything that doesn't involve the terminal or file system.

  1. Pretty good solution, but for smaller screens the grid could be improved to 1fr auto 1fr so the middle div isn't always as large as the outer 2 divs
  2. If you leave task manager open while gaming (with the cpu tab set to logical cores, by right clicking on the graph) and look at it afterwards, is your gpu maxed out while gaming? Could you post a screenshot of task manager with like the screenshot below?
  3. yeah, the massive 3 fan gpu cooler is right over that little heatsink (tbh the heatsink and fan shoulda been better quality), but 2 NF-A14s are coming to fix the problem
  4. HWMonitor shows southbridge temperatures, they were creeping up about 2c per minute in furmark

    Aarden is toch de term die meestal gebruikt word, zou daar voor gaan
  6. I just wanted to say that we figured it out whilst I was writing this but I didn't wanna throw this post away so other people in the future could benefit from our findings: the included fans in the meshify C only go up to 1200 rpm and we had to max them out all the time to get acceptable southbridge (chipset) temperatures, they were going up steadily while running furmark, gonna order him a noctua NF-A14 to fix the problem and get him some more airflow
  7. Hey, it's been a while since I posted here I built my friend's new gaming rig, the specs are as follows: Ryzen 7 3700x Asrock X570 Pro4 MSI RTX 3080 Ventux 3X 10G OC Fractal Design Meshify C Dark TG Noctua NH-U12S chromax.black Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x8 GB DDR4 3600mhz Corsair RM850x (2018) Samsung 970 EVO 1TB The problem is is that it keeps shutting down under in heavy loads, if we turn on furmark for the gpu and cinebench for the cpu its under a minute until it shuts down. In most games it's fine but in PUBG & other gpu bound titles (

    yoooo tijdje geleden dat ik hier aanwezig was
  9. I'd wait til you have all the money and spend it all at once, you never know when new hardware comes to market
  10. I'd wait for the new AMD Ryzen 3000 series which should be about the same price but with 2 more cores than before (probably will be announced at computex, end of may)
  11. Blender doesn't have support yet but it seems like maya is getting support soon: I'd wait for the release before buying a new gpu (we don't know how much better an rtx gpu is vs a normal gpu, this could just be a gpu thing)
  12. pro tip if the tv you're looking at has a thicker chin than top bezel, mount the top 2 tv's upside down to cut down on the bezel
  13. For the one that works/looks most like windows I'd get Linux Mint, but be warned that you'll probably have lower fps and maybe games that don't work natively on linux at all (you'll need to install additional programs to get these running)
  14. @Den15 Nice, Linux is great, you don't have to worry about getting the crappy version of docker then As for monitors I'd not recommend anything under 1440p, 1080p is really limiting from my experience (laptop for school) and it's always a relief coming home to 2x4k monitors
