  1. This is almost definitely caused by Avira. You can find of a near identical icon pack used in their software. If I had to had to guess, I'd say this is probably caused by either AviraPhantomVPN, AntiVirWebService, or AviraUpdaterService.
  2. What are your specs? What BSOD error are you encountering?
  3. Linus discussed this on the WAN show, timestamp is linked below:
  4. Gotcha, completely missed your objective on my first read through. Consider taking a look at this offering from Monoprice. It's quite short and pricey, but it'll get the job done. Make sure to quote or mention (@PorkishPig) or I will not be notified of your reply.
  5. They exist, but generally are not very long (~1-3ft), and are quite expensive. Instead, I'd consider taking a look at active HDMI cables, such as this 25ft cable from Cable Matters.
  6. In your particular case, upgrading your motherboard is entirely unrealistic unless you're replacing the entire system. Your best bet is upgrading your memory with the anticipation of moving it to a new system later down the line.
  7. You can't upgrade your motherboard without upgrading your power supply as well. Why do you feel that you need to upgrade the motherboard?
  8. Speed improvements could be negligible, depends on connection strength between the nodes when configured for wireless operation. Latency would definitely improve. Yes, that configuration will work. As long as a child nodes share the same subnet as the parent, Google WiFi will automatically reconfigure the nodes once connected via Ethernet.
  9. They're as quiet as any other scissor switch keyboard, and the keyboard is popular enough for third party manufacturers to make wrist rests for it. What is classified as "silent" is a bit subjective. It could very well be an improvement considering the baseline is an old Logitech membrane.
  10. Most of the decent keyboard options I can think of exceed your budget, but I'll list them anyways. If you'll be using the keyboard for gaming along with productivity, I'd suggest taking a look at a keyboard with MX Silent Red/Black key switches, or just add o-rings to any mechanical keyboard. If the keyboard will be used purely for productivity, take a look at the Logitech MX Keys, Dell KM717, or even Apple's Magic Keyboard.
  11. I'm not entirely sure what this means. POST errors will not cause Windows to boot into safe mode. It is normal for TUF boards to cycle through every Q-LED indicator light before booting.
  12. Quite literally. I listed a bunch of used i5-3570s on eBay for $35/piece a few years ago. One of these system builders ended up buying all of them in bulk. One of their configurations was a i5-3570, 1060 3GB, 128GB SSD, 1TB HDD, 16GB 1333Mhz for $800. This was back in the good ol' days when a 1060 was $140.
  13. I watch quite a few movies, so my favorite changes often. These are my current favorites: Whiplash Limitless Fight Club The Social Network The only movie that's remained in my top ten list for more than a year is The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.
  14. Make sure to quote or mention (@PorkishPig) or I won't get notified that you replied. Might just be a bug with the TUF B550-PLUS. I encountered a similar issue with my TUF X570-PLUS up until version 2802 (10/23/2020). If your system is stable, I wouldn't bother downgrading to resolve it.
  15. Your best bet to grab a 3070 FE from Best Buy during one of their drops. They normally drop on Tuesdays (most commonly), Thursdays, or Fridays every two weeks from 11AM-1PM EST. I've gotten both a 3070 FE (1/5, 11:45AM) and 3080 FE (2/9, 11:15AM) from Best Buy. There are Discord servers to notify you when a drop happens.
