    Battlefield 1, 4,5 and other battlefield games. Battlefield 1 is very sensitive to oc systems. If you pass 4 hours single and multiplayers gameplay of bf1, then you should be able to pass any real world app usage. 


    Prime95 small fft for 24 hours max. 12 hours min and 6 hours overnight recommend. 


    Then follow up memtest86




    Then use your computer normally


    Put your computer to sleep overnight than wake up in the morning. I have seen unstable oc systems crash in this situation. 


    Then loop a single raw footage gameplay in handbrake for 2 hours. 



    Thanks,. By looking at youtube benchmarks I found out that Rainbow Six: Siege, Mafia 3 and Dying light also requries a lot of CPU usage. Maybe I will test will some of them, I am not a big fan of battlefield games.

    Why not? It's a defect

    I sent a mail to Steelseries but as far as I read some threads about that problems everybody say that is not for RMA, tha I will hava to live with it??



    I won't solder anything, it is a month old keyboard, I never done anything like that. I sent a mail to Steelseries support to see they advice

    o-ring wouldn't help. If it sounds like the video you linked, it's possible the spring is the wrong size and isn't just pushing the key back up into place, it's too tight so it's literally springing back with more force than necessary.


    See if you're able to buy a single replacement switch and swap it out with the problematic one. Looks like they just pop out similar to cherry's

    It is Steelseries apex 7 keyboard under warranty, not hot swap keyboard. So sound won' t go away, can't RMA it, I must live with that?

  4. On my keyboard with gateron red one letter got some metal resonance sound when typing. Is it possible that this sound will go away? Does that comes under warranty? 


    It sound something like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQ_L3WnAnQk

    from 12 seconds.


    Would it be stupid to buy 1 o ring just for one key? That would help? On aliexpress/ebay I can find only o rings for chery mx but I have gateron switches. Will they fit without problems?

  5. On back of my motherboard I am thinking to use two usb port, every port will have usb extension cable, one extension usb cable is for bluetooth BT 400 (2 meters) and other is for wifi adapter (6 meters). Will this create any problems with power draw, USB port too overloaded? Every device wiill work fine?

  6. I am planning to buy this keyboard but I read this on Tom Hardware review:
    "The Apex 7 offers N-key rollover, so those moments should not have posed any problems. But I noticed that inputs were regularly ignored during frantic moments--which is exactly when gamers expect their keyboards to perform flawlessly. A quick example of a common scenario: grappling into the air as Wrecking Ball, using the WASD keys to reposition, pressing Q to drop a bunch of mines, pressing Ctrl to slam into the opposing team, and then pressing E to activate shields.
    That paragraph might read like a bunch of gobbledygook to people who don’t play Overwatch, but the gist is that I’m doing a bunch of things at once to make sure my mech-piloting hamster doesn’t turn into so much roadkill. Yet I would regularly find that my bombs didn’t drop (so the Q didn’t register) or shields didn’t activate (which means the E didn’t) while using the Apex 7. I didn’t have any problems performing similar maneuvers on the Logitech G Pro after multiple attempts."
    It seems stupid to me to give a big money for keyboard just to have this kind of problems...
  7. bumping this thread, here is the current situation:


    On back of my mobo I have connected wireless usb adapter and it works great (in first post it was connected at front). If I connect USB stick on front panel of my case and start to use usb stick my internet speed becomes very slow. I am still on BIOS 4204 (x470-f strix) and I am using my old windwos (version 1703) installation from my previous mbo. Should I update BIOS and reinstall Windows? Also when updating BIOS I just put it on stick and update through BIOS, as far as I seen there si no bridge BIOS so I can safely update to latest version?


    From other forum I got this answer:

    "Actually it looks to be more of an issue with the base tech itself that USB3 causes massive RF interference on the 2.4 GHZ spectrum. Here's a report: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/docs/io/universal-serial-bus/usb3-frequency-interference-paper.html"


    So no solution? Has anyone here got this problem?

    IOPS are random read/writes. A1 is a speed rating, most important for use in a phone SD card, when you want to put games/applications on it.

    Class 10 is for sequential writes,

    A1 for random read/writes.


    But no, it is in no way a endurance rating.


    will it be okay for using it on andorid box for 720p/1080p movies?

  9. Update: I will after windows reinstall try method that @mariushm recommended me and I will just for any case buy some cheap audio adapter. Is tere a difference between these two adapter on this link:




    What is better for my situation (two with mic and earphone picture on those for two earphones), speakers 2.1 and headphone in Line in?

    You probably won't need to do that.

    Most modern sound cards have auto detection of what you plug in the audio jacks. You can basically plug a jack in any connector and the sound card will auto detect the type (if it's speakers, microphone etc)

    Try plugging your headphones in the Line In or Microphone jacks in the back, the sound card should detect it and just work.

    If not, open the control panel that / application that comes with your sound card and manually set the role of the plug to headphones.

    For example, on my Realtek HD Audio Manager I can double click on the right on the analogue audio plugs and say "this is headphones"




    If this doesn't work, your motherboard has the audio jacks in the back and an AC97/HDAUDIO front panel header.


    You can get some extension cable (anything with 2 x 5 wires) and cut the wires and connect them to your audio cable, the pinout of that header is standardized:





    5 PORT 2R Analog Port 2—right channel (Headphone)
    9 PORT 2L Analog Port 2—left channel (Headphone)
    2 GND Ground

    That's your three wires for the headphones jack.


    Here's example of cable you can buy from ebay : https://www.ebay.com/itm/Internal-Motherboard-AC97-HD-audio-9pin-male-to-female-Extension-Cable-cord-40cm/312083838829?epid=888339804&hash=item48a9a5776d:g:A~IAAOSwgQ9VpOLc


    Cut the connector with the pins.. Get a male-female stereo cable, cut the male connector and connect the wires together.... job done.

    Sorry for my late answer I was on summer vacation.


    My mbo is Asus x470-f strix, I installed new audio driver from Asus website but I don`t see Realtek control panel, I only got Realtek audio console and when I try to open it I got "App can`t be open. There is a problem with realtek console. Contact your system administrator about repairing it or reinstalling it."


    I plug headphones on back panel in Microphone but nothing happens, I only got in Windows playback device option microphone options. My windows is a mess (win 10 1703 version), I will reinstall it soon on newest. So if I got on new windows realtek program options I should plug my headphone to microfone and just set it to headphones in Realtek control panel? That or find audio adapter for Line in? I won t cut any wires (your second method), that seems to complicated to me.

  11. I can buy used Patriot V760 kalih brown but I read that kalih brown are really bad, too much inconsistency and really bad quality control. Is that true? Maybe it is better to wait for some better offer? I am aiming for cherry mx brown because tactile feedback and that they are more silent than blue.

  12. When I want to enter some video file on my HDD (partition D) I got this message:



    The specified path do not exist.

    Check the path and then try again.


    When I click on that file and select properties on locatio it is written this:

    \\?\D:\name of the video


    I tried change the letter of the drive but problem remains. When I copy file to C partition it works?


    I also got problem when I open Viber on my PC I got a message that CD is not in the drive? Then I clikc on cancle option and viber opens.


    I scanned already with Malwarebytes, everything is clean.
