  1. Recreational marijuana use is like everything - fine in limits. It's been proven in multiple studies that one bottle of beer (average lager/ale with average calories) is physically better on the body than one gram of marijuana. I've personally never tried it, as I live in California and I'd get fired immediately if my employer found out, but as long as it's used in MODERATION and by the appropriate age group, it's fine. For the record, I grew up in New Jersey, where there's tons of parties and high school klunkheads everywhere who just polluted their brain cells going
  2. Hey, So I recently purchased an Xbox One, and set it up in my 'game room'. However, the game room has incredibly shitty internet. My PC is in there and has great internet only because it has a fifty-foot Ethernet cable that runs from it directly to the router. I'm not sure why the internet is so bad, however my Xbox cannot even connect to Live, and this has made it quite irritating for me and my friends when we play. Is there a way to boost speeds without having to buy another fifty-foot Ethernet cable? I can't move my router into the game room, because it's shared betw
  3. Because practically every Android is superior to every Windows Phone....ever. Especially the one you referenced.
  4. You need an LGA 1151 motherboard to work with that CPU. For you, I'd just recommend something simple like an H110M.
  5. Old CPU Last-gen RAM series XFX is a good company, but I would recommend an EVGA PSU The 212 evo is an oooohhh-kayyyy CPU cooler. If you want a '4K build', I'd go for something....uh....liquidy. Other than that, looks pretty good.
  6. What I personally would do, is wait for the new Apple Watch to come out, and then buy the original. Why? The price will drop exceedingly, and personally I can't justify spending $600 on a smartwatch that will have maybe 20% more features than the original one, which will most likely hover around $200-300 (from 3rd-party vendors obviously, not from Apple itself). It's your call though, if I had to choose one, it'd be the original.
  7. All compression fittings are usually universal...there may be a few exceptions out there but I'm not sure which. Compression fittings use a screw system from behind - you put the nut over the tube before you attach it, hook the tube onto the fitting itself, and then tighten the nut over the tube so that the tube is in between the nut and fitting.
  8. Try to avoid OCZ or Samsung's 850 Pro. Both are incredibly overpriced. Personally, I'd look into a Crucial MX2 or MX1, or maybe a BX series.
  9. Looks pretty good. However, if this is a first-time build, then don't go for watercooling in my opinion. Even if it's AIO, I"d still start with air cooling. Other than that, it looks good. I'm assuming there's going to be some kind of algorithm processing/rendering going on as you have a 6700K correct?
  10. By 'common consumer' you mean what exactly....? I'm going to assume you mean like....regular things? Browsing, and photo managing? Maybe some light gaming? In that case, I'd recommend this one.
  11. Beat the shit out of your brother. Just kidding, any technical hardware damage around the earphones themselves? Have you tried checking for damage/cracks/etc.? If you find nothing, then I suspect it may be a bad cable, which seems to be a common problem with the headphone users I've experienced.
  12. Drivers? It can't be a hardware issue if it only happens for certain things or not others.... Most likely a software glitch on Razer's part, however I'd take a look at ALL of your windows drivers and such just to be safe. Cheers.
