  1. I'm thinking something like Wacom's Intuos would work well. People typically use it for art, but I figure I could just as easily use it for what I want to use it for
  2. Hello all, I'm looking to add some sort of touch screen display to my PC. It has to be able to be used with a stylus. I'm planning on using the surface to produce mathematical proofs, so I need to be able to write on them some sort of precision and comfort. I was originally considering buying an entire new device for this, but I figured that it would be cheaper to just add one to my dekstop PC. Any suggestions?
  3. As the title implies, I am looking for either a tablet, or maybe even a touch screen laptop that folds, or has a detachable keyboard that allows me to write on it with some sort of stylus. I do not need the tablet to have any other capabilities really. As I have a desktop computer that I use at home for everything else. I don't mind paying for a nice item, if it's something that is worth the expense and will last. Also, preferably something with Windows 10, because I'm familiar with troubleshooting issues in Windows 10. Thanks!
  4. Holy shit, 24 lanes just on the chipset? So I could use pretty much anything in the smaller slots without dedicating cpu lanes then.? Thanks for the picture by the way. I'll be sure to save that
  5. It may seem off the wall to you, however my logic is something like as follows: Devices within PCIe slots, use PCIe lanes. A system's CPU, and Chipset use lanes of their own. I'm not sure where it's specified what devices are using which slots/lanes. Or even if that's a relevant question. Electrical engineering is nuanced topic
  6. https://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php?name=MB-MAXHEWA&c=CJ&cjevent=bf44dcbff4ba11e8821901c70a24060b# Would the on-board wi-fi solution use PCiE lanes from my CPU or from the chipset? For example: If I were to use the wi-fi ports on the motherboards I/O, will I be losing GPU performance? Another question: If I were to use a network card I would lose performance, because my CPU would be dedicating lanes correct?
  7. I don't think mine has one. Asus i370 gaming I believe it's called. It's the z370 mitx board. It did come with this thing for wi-fi however. Which I thought was a nice touch, even though I use an ethernet cable.
  8. I've never seen that Fan extension card before, that thing seems pretty interesting. Looks like it's only supported on ASUS boards https://www.asus.com/us/Motherboard-Accessory/FAN-EXTENSION-CARD/
  9. That's a good point. Maybe if I intently listened to my PC, or measured it with some sort of device then there would a difference, but there isn't enough of a subjective difference for me to notice. What do you use to measure coolant temps?
  10. I guess based on the fact that the side panel fits back on, and the top two fans don't have much of an impact on airflow; Then the D15's only downfall (which isn't a big one, and also it's moot) would be that it's a bit uncomfortable to install; that may not even be the case either. If I had a do-over, I would likely just go with the D15, however, I don't feel like buying one now is really worth it. Like previously mentioned, it doesn't make much sense to me to buy a new cooler, to see small to no noticeable increase in games. Plus I like the aesthetic, and ease of installation on the small
  11. It's also to my understand that TP Link seems to have a pretty solid reputation. Also that is a good point about using the ethernet if you're close to the router anyways. Do you (or anyone else who happens to see this) know whether or not there has been videos on the subject?
  12. Personally, I've never had troubles with the smaller adapters. What sort of issues have you ran into with them?
  13. Thanks for the suggestion; however my solution seems to be cheaper and have a bit better speeds!
  14. My friend and I just recently finished fixing up his computer. Now all he needs is an internet solution. Long story short: he needs Wi-fi, he's not using hardline. Normally whenever I'm in this situation I recommend people just buy a USB dongle like the one linked below. Do you guys have any other preferred method that you use? https://www.amazon.com/Inamax-1200Mbps-Wireless-802-11ac-10-4-10-13/dp/B0773ZPKS2/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1532987391&sr=8-3&keywords=wi-fi+dongle
  15. I guess I would just think that there would be a software, that could force a computer to produce all possible colored pixels within a given amount of time. And then the software could store those values, and compare them to a chart/table that had all of the possible colors of a given spectrum. I'm not sure how a computer couldn't do that actually
