  1. I cooled my r7 3800x for the first 2 months of having it with a hyper 212 evo but found that it ran close to 90 degrees so switched to a darkrock pro 4 It will cope - think it is the same TDP as the Wraith RGB (stock cooler for the 3800x) but the larger fan does not need to run as fast and in theory should be more quiet.
  2. I use Chrome on my laptop and phone (Ram isn't an issue cause its pretty much all I use for those devices and they're both a bit overpowered) however I have Firefox as a secondary on both devices. On my desktop rig I use firefox because I don't need it to sync with work or school and I have no use for chrome extensions past the essentials that are on Firefox anyway, I enjoy the enhanced customisability of firefox and the nature of the rig is that it is in a public room and is not always attended to by myself so I have an internal password on it for sensitive information such as emails or
  3. I posted about this recently but the feedback did not work. I have a 1TB nvme drive as my windows boot drive (C). I used the Seagate disc copy tool to copy over the disc from my old C drive which was a 240GB ssd and now my 1TB drive only gives me access to a 225GB partition with a 708.5GB "Healthy (Recovery Partition). How can I extend my primary partition to the full drive? The extend the partition button does not come up for the primary partition and no options come up for the reserved 700GB.
  4. sounds like you need to overhaul your cooling, even a hyper 212 evo will do a decent job with an i5 4590, when you say add, did you also wipe off the old stuff? If you want to keep the cpu and it is perfectly ok then pick yourself up a rtx 3070 (you may also need a new power supply) That leaves some money for a high refresh rate monitor. You're better off waiting for Gen3 Ryzen which is due very soon CPU-wise but an i5 4590 is not a slouch and I wouldn't be overly worried about it as long as you figure out the cooling.
  5. I know its not quite the filling the ethernet requirements but the Ubiquiti Dream Machine Pro https://store.ui.com/collections/unifi-network-routing-switching/products/udm-pro. It has SPF+ WAN and LAN ports along with an 8 port gigabit ethernet switch. Its resonably well priced but I don't know what region you're in so I can't quote. Pair it with a 10 gig ethernet switch that also has at least one SFP+ port you've found youself a pretty decent option and I'd guess for less than most alternatives with similar features. Cat7 has more bandwidth than Cat6a and it all depends on the EMI of the
  6. I play flight sim usually and when I'm not its Hoi4 or cities skylines. so not a great disadvantage
  7. I got an Air Duster Blower and it doesn't quite manage my laptop quite as well but I am cleaning out computer's on a commericial level so the savings are fantastic. Also not wearing gloves and not worrying about it running out and ordering a replacment crete is a pretty good bonus too. It has tripped a few fuses tho (It's 850W).
  8. I have an old (but good) set of Desktop speakers but whenever I plug them into the back of my motherboard (Aorus X570 Elite) the audio is always crackling, however if I plug into front pannel audio they work just fine. Thats an ugly and annoying solution though, any ideas why this is happenning. It's worth mentioning that this also happened on my old motherboard (B350m Asus Prime). Also this is 3.5mm not optical or HDMI.
  9. Can't go wrong with Audio Technica M50x
  10. If you like the AT M50x (I have the same ones and I love them) then why not just go with the wireless ones. They're not especially expensive. That being said I have a pair of Audiotechnicka wireless earbuds (ATH-CKS5TW) and upon doing a firmware upgrade they have become faulty so I don't know if that translates over to the M50xBT though. You may also find quite a few Bose QC 35 IIs being flipped as those are currently being given away with the Pixel 5 and Pixel 4a 5G so it might be worth picking a set of those up for a lower price - I have tried them and they completely outclass my PXC 55
  11. Currently I have a Dell XPS 13 and I have discovered that I do not need the entire battery even with my reltiavely heavy use (I ususally have about 50 tabs of chrome open along with any number of word documents, zoom, etc). Dell does have a propriety power management tool but is there a more openly avaliable alternative? Currently I am experimenting with a schelduled smart plug being used for a chromebook that is used as a desktop replacment in a docking station 90% of the time. This is in an effort to make the devices last a bit longer since it is the batteries that usually die first in my ex
  12. I would have thought so but when I tried to do this last weekend I could not use that setting within windows disc managment. I will retry this weekend to see if I overlooked any aspect of it though.
