  1. Hi, Linux noob here, could really use with a hand. So TL:DR intro: Built a new pc, Ryzen 9 5900x (by some miracle i found one), b550 Gigabyte Aorus elite board, a gtx970 (to be replaced w/ 3080); ran a hackintosh build for the past half-decade before this, can't stand W10 but im resorting to it for now, need Linux operational. I installed Elementary OS, but it doesn't detect the Ethernet connection so it didn't download a lot of essential stuff. I downloaded the realtek network drivers onto a usb but needed to run the 'make' command which is unavailable as it didn't install 'build essen
  2. As far as I know PhysX deals mostly with 3D engines and simulations, wouldn't have guessed it would affect premiere at all, but regardless I did it anyways and issue remains..
  3. Can confirm all these are enabled, first thing I checked.
  4. Grasping at straws here as I can't figure out why on earth Premiere Pro can't even scrub through a 1080p timeline on an i9 9900k, 1080ti, 32gb ram machine. I usually work with MacOS, not used to W10 on a technical level, this is a new machine we got for the office (no IT department yet so I'm stuck trying to figure this out). If anyone has any tips and/or solutions to try, please do speak up.
  5. We haven’t overclocked yet, it’s running stock. I just installed all the drivers from the Gigabyte website and that’s it. How would I go about updating the BIOS and chipset? I didn’t think I’d need to considering the whole OS was reset anyways.
  6. So, we upgraded our rig yesterday from a i7 5820k with an ASUS X99-A motherboard to a i9 9900k with a Gigabyte Z390 board. Hardware wise everything went smoothly. Now on the the software bit, aka Windows acting up. After the upgrade, we reset Windows to remove the drivers and any remaining junk from the previous components. We installed all the drivers needed, re-activated windows (surprisingly without hassle) and went on our merry way, everything was working fine and the machine was stable. Now this morning I’m sitting here sorting through files moving stuff from one drive to another. Ya know
  7. Right so I run a dual boot set up of macOS Sierra and Windows 8.1 using Clover as the bootloader. Specs are as follows: So ever since I created this setup I've always had some minor issues with windows (ironic considering MacOS gave me 0 issues other than no sound at first). I've managed to fix these little things here and there but there's one thing that to this day still annoys the shit out of me. For some reason Windows is ALWAYS an hour behind. I've tried it synced to the internet servers, I've tried to set it manually, I've even tried to manually set it two hours ahead but n
  8. They're great monitors but I'm looking for something wireless. Im not discarding monitors but I'm not necessarily looking for them either as I don't intend to do any professional sound editing with them. Appreciate the help though
  9. Also, those Sony look hella clean
  10. No best buy in the UK sadly, but yeah ill do some store browsing before making a decision for sure. Thanks for the suggestion btw, really appreciate it!
  11. Minimalistic, discrete, that sort of style. Something I can use indoors, outdoors and at the gym. Not really a fan of gaming headsets, they go way too overboard with the whole "gamer look". Yeah I've always thought that myself about Beats in general but apparently the reviews say the sound is much more balanced, hence me even considering them. What Sony ones do you suggest then?
  12. Mac OS (hackintosh) for work and chill and Windows 8.1 for gaming on my desktop. I used W7 then laptop died so switched to Mac, W8 was a complete mess at the time so yeah. W10 is still a buggy mess when I tried it so I decided to stick with 8.1 on my desktop and skin it to look like 7. Not the best but fuck it, rarely game these days anyway. So TL;DR Laptop - Mac OS, Desktop - Mac OS & W8.1
  13. I'm looking for wireless headphones, preferably on-ear ones, with good quality sound and battery. I want to use them for desktop work/music and media consumption, walking around and that fit snuggly enough for when I workout. I've googled some lists and all that BS but I much prefer a personal opinion. I've looked into the Beats Solo 3 Wireless since they've got very good reviews as far as sound is concerned (which surprised me tbh, wasn't expecting that from Beats) and fit perfectly into what I'm looking for, however the price/value is a bit shite (although the W1 chip to pair with the iPhone
  14. I do actually think it would be a cool combo, LMG has this sort of "test technology to its current limits" sort of vibe lately so Adam could fit in one of those projects.
  15. Here's an update on the situation: I noticed a hib(something).sys occupying like 13gb of ssd space, researched on it and turns out its the hibernate/fast boot function of Windows that could be disabled so I disabled it and, somehow, it fixed the problem. Go figure I guess.
