    Hello there! ^^

    My name is Dmitriy and I'm 21 and really interested by technology in general.
    This is more than anything computer hardware, awesome gadgets and useful software.

    At the moment I'm in college in Ghent, Belgium.

  1. This answer might be a bit late, but I have this problem as well. I tried a few things and it turns out that for me it had to do with the fact that the Windows scheduler is horrible and wants everything to run on core 0. Setting the affinity of your OBS to NOT use core 0 and maybe even core 1 will probably fix your frame drops in OBS.
  2. VPNFilter malware - Cisco's Talos finds new network gear vulnerability Cisco's Talos Intelligence group shares their findings about a new multi-stage malware they found on network devices in a blogpost. The post summarises the different stages of the malware, manner of infection, malware activity, and how to protect your devices (if possible) against the threat. The below information can also be found on the blogpost itself: https://blog.talosintelligence.com/2018/05/VPNFilter.html Brief Technical Rundown Stage 1 Stage 2 St
  3. The GPU uses the PCI-e cable listed on the datasheet you listed. Most PSUs will have at least 2 of these connectors. ^^
  4. Yes, they won't fall out if you hold the screwdriver with the head downward. ^^
  5. So if you switched everything up, do the parts that you used to swap in work as a standalone PC? If not it might be bad power in your house? But that seems unlikely unless the wiring is really iffy in you building.
  6. I think he means the DNS server your PC connects to to resolve the site you're trying to reach. I personally use the Google DNS server ( & for ipV4) for both ipv4 and 6. I have no idea how to find the best DNS server for you specifically.
  7. Indeed, since you're playing with the part that delivers power to all the other parts in your system it's better to leave it some breathing space. Also, if you're not sure about what PSU to choose, here's a PSU tier list. Maybe go even a little bit higher than 500W.
  8. I think most use Stereo, and some people prefer to enable HRTF and others don't. I personally use stereo with the feature enabled. It completely depends on what you're used to and how you hear everything around you. You shouldn't use certain settings because someone else uses them. It's the same with playing your game 4:3 stretched because you're used to that. I tried that but it's nothing for me. Just try some things and see what's best for you.
  9. I'm only in my first year of electronics in college so take what I say with a few grains of salt. As far as I'm aware running less voltage trough your LEDs won't damage them, only a higher voltage would be a problem. And if the resistor does get hot, you can replace it with 2 2K resistors in parallel to spread the load. I've been told this is being done in quite a few circuits.
  10. Check if you have mini dumps enabled and check the BSOD log file with BlueScreenView. It will help you narrowing down the cause.
  11. Going by your title, (Laptop VS Desktop) The desktop will be cheaper using the same parts. So is it worth it? Depends on if you think it's worth it. Do you want a laptop because you will be gaming on the go? Because if you only plan on gaming at home there's no real reason to buy a laptop. In terms of upgradability, as far as I'm aware you wont be able to switch out the CPU/GPU except maybe if the GPU is on an MXM module, and even then, I don't know if that will make it possible to upgrade. And as for Volta, I wouldn't hold my breath. There's no information about when the consumer
  12. Yes, they would also be compatible with hardware from years ago.
  13. Oh sorry, I saw the nr 6 3 times and assumed they were all Vega 56 cards. True, that's quite weird.
  14. No, if anything the dust would go deeper into the heatsink. But I expect the fans to not have enough power to move the dust that's stuck in there. I would suggest using a compressor or a can of compressed air and blow the dust out in the opposite direction the fans blow air into the card.
