    Logitech G703. Lies well in the hand, excellent wireless (used by many pro players).

    Have you set the control mode to voltage rather than PWM?

    Never met him, don't know him personally.
     
    From what I've seen of him on videos, he seems like a fun guy to have around. Could just be a facade he's putting for the camera, but then again, if he was a dbag, you'd think his employees would've left long ago.

    toasty6776 got a reaction from .Apex. in What should I upgrade first?   
    It would be helpful to know, what exactly your budget is. But right off the bat, I can tell you that the best thing you can do is getting an SSD. A 120GB (or Go since I suspect you're French) would be enough. Just keep your HDD but install Windows and all your programs onto the SSD. Your system will feel A LOT snappier and you can see from there if you feel the need to upgrade any other hardware.

    Shouldn't be a problem since you're just telling Windows to shut down when you're pressing the power button (as long as you're not holding it down). Thereby all applications can be closed gracefully and you shouldn't run into any issues.

    If they are similar in price, get the 980 Ti. It will perform about the same as a 1070.

    I don't know that specific model but generally speaking, TP-Link makes quite good networking equipment so you should be alright there.

    My NAS has 5 WD Red 3TB HDDs + 1 SanDisk SSD Plus 120GB as a Cache.
    I use unRAID single parity for redundancy and I don't really have a backup solution for the machine as I have nowhere to put those 12TB of backed up files.

    That might actually be an issue. Don't make it more than finger tight. If you have to put real effort into turning the screws, you might be overdoing it. Too firm mounting pressure can result in the system not posting (and if you're unlucky can cause permanent damage to your chip)

    toasty6776 got a reaction from sowon in additional ssd question   
    Depends. M.2's are easier to install but are usually a tiny bit more expensive than their 2.5" counterparts (assuming both are SATA drives)
    M.2 doesn't change the way the SSD behaves, so yes. M.2 is just the connector as opposed to SATA which is used for basically every consumer 2.5" SSD.

    toasty6776 got a reaction from CableMod in Do Good Orange Cables Exist?   
    Depends on what you find reasonably priced but I do quite like cablemod. They have both full cable sets and extensions and if you want you can customise the colours on the individual wires (that can get quite expensive though).

    toasty6776 got a reaction from The_Vaccine in DisplayPort over USB-C?   
    According to this, there is no distinction between USB versions in terms of there DP capabilities. Based on that I would assume that every DP over USB-C port supports DP 1.2 (i.e. 4k60).

    toasty6776 got a reaction from TheONLYHamster in i5-4690k + GTX 1080   
    To answer you question directly: NO you don't NEED to upgrade. I run a 6600k and recently got the chance to upgrade from a 1070 to a 1080 and I'm REALLY happy with it. However, I do notice some CPU bottlenecking when playing CPU intensive games like Ghost Recon: Wildlands, which doesn't mean that I have an unpleasant gaming experience, I just do notice it. Basically it boils down to: You don't have to upgrade but you would definitely benefit from upgrading to an i7 or Ryzen 7 CPU.

    and a new mobo  
    The GPU has more impact on the frame rate at higher resolutions. Bottlenecking is basically like two runners (CPU and GPU) who are tied together with a rope. At lower resolutions, both runners can run freely but the CPU is slower than the GPU so the GPU gets held back (bottlenecked). Increasing the resolution basically changes the surface the GPU runs on. The higher the resolution, the harder the GPU needs to work to go forward (CPU still runs on normal ground) resulting in effectively the CPU being bottlenecked by the GPU (THIS IS WHAT YOU WANT).
    I hope this makes understanding bottlenecking a bit easier.

    This is NOT what I was trying to say! A 6600(k) is basically equivalent to a 4690k and I would not recommend upgrading to it! If you want to upgrade your CPU, get a 7700k or maybe check out Ryzen 7.

    toasty6776 got a reaction from Thomas_Steam in Will my Asus Z170A motherboard have good enough onboard sound for the Game Zero?   
    I would say not quite. I own a Maximus VIII Ranger (so the same sound engine as the Z170A, if I'm not terribly mistaken) and a Game Zero and I'm rather satisfied with it. I am however not as blown away by the overall sound, as I expected to be. I think it sounds just a little bit more tinny, when compared to my beyer-dynamic dt 901 (which I have connected to a headphone amp). This is only noticeable however, when going from my other headphones directly to the headset.
    In short: I think the Game Zero would definitely benefit from a discrete amp but it's still a great headset (especially in terms of comfort) when driven off the motherboard.
