  1. fan gör du på linus tech tips? haha kommer ihåg lite men det var länge sen. Kör bara dator just nu, köpte 3 stycken 980 ti's och tre 4k skärmar å la konsol bakom mig

    Har varit här ett tag, la konsol bakom mig ett tag sen också, förresten, var fan fick du dem pengarna ifrån? vann du på triss eller? haha, btw vad heter du på skype?

  2. It's awesome. The first year at least, I've had mine for about 2 years, a bit wear and tear on the cushions (Note. I'm 6"3 and weigh about 180lbs), but it's one of the most comfortable "office" chairs that I have had. And it has a 10 year warranty whihc is a +.

  3. Which is the best mousepad that you would recommend?

    Right now I use the Steelseries qck+ which is quite big for most but I need a bigger one (that's what she said). Why do I need a bigger one? Well I mostly play CS:GO with a low dpi and sens (400dpi and 0.9 in-game sens), so I need as much place as I can.
    So I've been looking at extended pads. 

    The three I'm looking at are:
    HyperX Fury XL: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00TY6A2D6?keywords=hyperx%20fury%20xl&qid=1444726298&ref_=sr_1_1&sr=8-1
    Steelseries Qck XXL: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00YOY4R1G?keywords=steelseries%20qck%20xxl&qid=1444726951&ref_=sr_1_1&sr=8-1
    Glorious XXL Extended: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NOCZTTI?keywords=glorious%20pc%20gaming%20race&qid=1444727138&ref_=sr_1_3&sr=8-3

    Which one is the best one do you reckon? (can't be thicker than 4mm, can't find specs on all thru googling (partly since I'm shit at googling lol)).

    This is what I came up with, enough for streaming and editing and can also be used for gaming in the future if you add a gpu.
  5. The 1s will just plug directly into the audio of your PC, no dongle needed. Other than that, there aren't really any sound differences.


    As far as those headsets, you would get better sound if you got a headphone, and either a modmic or boompro. (but that's in the future, so you should post again when you get to that point.)

    Thank you, going to buy the 1's, and make a new thread when I'm ready to take make the headphone/modmic step.

  6. http://www.amazon.com/Technica-ATHAG1-Closed-Back-Gaming-Headset/dp/B00H95X98O/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1444428248&sr=8-1&keywords=Audio+Technica+headset






    Those are all the ones he was talking about. 


    The Audio Technica AD___X line is very good. If you're looking for closed back, the A___X line is the closed version of those. Avoid the M series. (e.g. M50X, etc.)


    There aren't any noticeable differences between them all, except for that the Cloud 2 has a really shit USB dongle, and a 4 pole connector that makes it harder to plug directly into a PC than the other options. 


    You could try to get your hands of the Philips SHP9500 and a Vmoda BoomPro.

    Thank you for taking your time with the links. So for me it looks like a BD, AT or Sennheiser headset are a bit into the future for me (funds etc etc) but will be a defo buy once I can, but for now I'm leaning towards the Clouds, you said that the 2's had a shit dongle, are the 1's usb dongle better? Will both do just as good or are there any big sound/mic differences between them?

  7. Kingston HyperX Cloud 2, I bought them yesterday and they are amazing! The unique con that I have is the microphone. It is very quiet and you can't boost him through audio panel in windows, however I could bypass that. They are extremelly comfortable and offer multiple accessories. If you are more into gaming I recommend switch the leather cups for the velour pads since they leak more audio and therefore you have more perception around you

    And what are the key differences between the 2's and the 1? How does people like your mic in let's say skype calls? (Important for me since I don't like people with bad mics and don't want to be in the group of those people.) Thank you for your advice, I will take into consideration.

  8. I couldn't agree more. Most gaming headsets have what I consider to be a terrible mic. My standards might be higher than most though, as I rely heavily on my headset for dictation. With that said, I have found Sennheiser to be the best option, at least for me. The mic on the headsets from Audio Technica and Beyerdynamic are also quite good. Unfortunately, the price tag on all three of the options I mentioned is significantly higher than the headsets in the poll.

    Could you link the headsets that you're recommending? As far as I know then, I would need a separate mic aswell.

    This would only be a solution for half a year-a year maybe, and after that period I will upgrade to a good "audiophile" classed pair of headphones aswell as a separate microphone.


    You are aware, I hope, that the Qpad, and both hyperX headphones are literally the same thing...  Any headset you buy will have a potato mic, but all four of the headsets should have mics that are at least passable. What do you currently use for your audio?


    I do know tey're the same thing, but wanted to know if there were any key differences between the 3. As of now I'm limited to a pair of shit headphones and want to buy a headset as soon as I can, but in the future I'm porbably going to get a better pair of studio headphones aswell as a separate microphone.

    Psst Audio Technica or Razer imo.

    Maybe AT, don't really know anything about them, so if you could recommend a model, I would be very happy.And about the razer part I will just stop listening...

  9. So I'm having a hard time settling for a headset for gaming and skype/TS3 and figured that I would turn to you guys.

    So i'm looking at the Qpad qh-90, kingston hyperx cloud 1,  kingston hyperx cloud 2 and logitech g430.
    What I want to know is, how do they feel for long periods of time, how good they sound (I play a lot of cs so footsteps are crucial to hear for me) and how good the mic is (for friends so they don't scream at me for using potato mics).
    The price difference here in Sweden is minimal for me, the only big difference is the hyperx cloud 2 and the rest (what's the difference between 1 and 2 btw?) and that's about 20$ roughly, so not a big deal for me at least.

  10. An unlocked processor on an ROG series mobo leads me to believe you'll be overclocking, and in that case you should typically go for an AiO with a nice beefy radiator so you can get the best possible temps and therefore the best possible clocks. This extra headroom also helps keep the system quiet as the cooler doesn't need to spin the fans up to higher RPMs just to keep up with the heat output.


    If you aren't planning on pushing the chip very hard or at all, the decision really just comes down to aesthetics and personal preference. You certainly don't NEED to spend the extra money, since you can get some very capable air coolers for under $30 these days.

    Been thinking about the corsair h801 (gt thingy version), is it any good? thinking of not getting the h100i since I might need the second fan intake to cool the 390 is a powerhouse.


    look to corsair for aio. look to cooler master for fan cooling (hyper 212 or v8) have fun!

    Max. space for ac is 120mm... so a bit cramped, know any good "flat" ones?
