    Hi! I'm Djole123. I love computers, even tho I don't have a particularly good one. I love to speak a ton of jokes and have a laugh.

    I live in Serbia, a country that has been shown by Linus a few times, a country in which we love meat (especially the burgers), and a country full of natural habits.

    Some of my milestones:

    First post: Is Windows XP obsolete? (by me, on 6-18-2015)

    500th post: in: Windows 98 installation error "Insufficent memory" (by Comic_Sans_MS, on 1-24-2016)

  1. Summary Microsoft published informtation about Windows 10 consumer edition lifecycles, and the retirement date was set for October 2025, fueling rumors about the next release of Windows. Quotes My thoughts Short news - but very sweet. This could have big implications on the whole Windows as a Service policy. Microsoft did say that Windows 10 is set to be "the last version of Windows", but it seems like, either because of the pressure from OEMs, or the sheer confusion about what Windows 10 is (remember, there are now TWELVE different releases of Windows 10,
  2. With the all new flagship Snapdragon 888 launched, we are expecting many new phones to launch next year, however the first one is set to be announced this year, on December 28th. The Xiaomi Mi 11 is tipped to be visually similar to its predecessor, the Mi 10, however with a camera rearrangement and updated internals it's set to be a proper 2021 flagship. Along with the SoC upgrades, we can also expect a battery and refresh rate bump. As of now, the launch is China-exclusive, however history tells us we can expect a global variant in the co
  3. (It's actually a 40GB drive ) Although you said it has no bad sectors, I personally wouldn't trust a Maxtor hard drive, especially not one that's just about to celebrate its 16th birthday. You could keep it as a collector's item, or perhaps find an IDE to SATA adapter and perhaps use it for less important data.
  4. Try enabling noise suppression in Windows. Go to your Control panel, then type in sound in the search bar, and click on the Sound category. From there, go to the Recording tab, click on your active microphone, and choose Properties. Then, go to Enhancements, and choose Noise supression. If you don't have this tab, install the Realtek Audio drivers (even if you have them), by going to your motheboard's support website and finding the appropriate driver.
  5. Edit: I just now realise the insignificance of the issue. It'll probably only affect like 3% of the Ryzen userbase. I should probably stop reading Wccftech.
  6. A slide from an internal AMD engineering team has surfaced courtesy of Igor's Lab showing that Renoir mobile CPUs may have a PCIe bandwith limit of just 4-8x, leaving a tight spot for GPUs like the RTX 2060S and higher. Although there still is enough headroom for mid tier GPUs, it is still a shame that it's stripped down when compared to desktop and Intel equivalents. Power users may still have to wait for either next gen Ryzens or just settle for an Intel CPU, albeit at a significant cost. Source: https://wccftech.com/amd-renoir-mobility-pcie-3-0-l
  7. So, as you know, Intel is trying to finally get in to the competitive GPU market, and they're going to give it a shot with the Intel Xe GPU platform. Raja Koduri has teased the new GPU as the "baap of all", which gives us hope that this new GPU is going to be a monster in power. But now, we finally get to see the new beast, and it looks just as beastly as we hoped: Being 3696mm^2 in size, we expect the new GPUs to be absolute powerhouses, just like the Xeon Phi chips it will superceed. What do you guys think of this? Source: htt
  8. A good short term option would be to get yourself an AIO water cooler and overclock the 8350 as much as you can. You can also try to OC the GPU. A long term option would be to swap the AM3+ platform and get the AM4 Ryzen MoBo, CPU and DDR4 RAM. Perhaps a Ryzen 3 could do the trick for you.
  9. This is a massive red flag to me. Have you tried swapping the power supplies?
  10. Location, budget? P.S. I honestly think it would be more economically (and in general) viable for you to just buy a gaming laptop and a separate, inexpensive device for Office and web browsing. You wouldn't get any of the performance losses caused by having to feed video back to the internal display, and cheaper machines have chips with such low TDP that it should even last a full working day.
  11. 1. If you're getting the 2700X, why not just get the 3700X for the same money? 2. The motherboard and RAM might be a little too expensive 3. The PSU is a bit overkill 4. Do you really need Windows 10 Pro? Unless you plan on getting more than 128GB of RAM, Windows 10 Home should be just fine.

  12. I'm a bit skeptical on the power supply boggy chose, but other than that it seems fine.
  13. If your bottom tier motherboard states that it supports the given CPU, nothing wrong will happen. Your CPU will work perfectly fine. However, you might lose a lot of advanced features (such as overclocking, SLI/CrossFire etc.). If it doesn't, though, you may run into issues from motherboard not recognising it and not willing to boot to just straight up frying the board because the VRMs can't handle the power needed for it.
  14. Yeah, you can pair them with an Android phone just like any other Bluetooth headset. The next-gen Galaxy Buds look so odd to me, it's like two beans
  15. I have literally the same issue as you to. I cannot use any silicone earbuds. In my testings, honestly, the AirPods non-Pro are the best fit for me. The sound may not be audiophile-grade but they're still pretty decent.
