  1. Between the AOC and Gigabyte, yes, it appears the Gigabyte is better and cheaper.
  2. Is this something that started happening recently? What I noticed is that CPU-Z shows the multiplier as "x 22 (8-22)". It appears for some reason, something is telling the CPU to max out at that speed. Usually the multiplier can be set in the BIOS.
  3. @Percept1onn Here are the links for rtings, a well regarded review website for displays. https://www.rtings.com/monitor/reviews/aoc/cq27g2 https://www.rtings.com/monitor/reviews/gigabyte/g27q If this is your budget and you're upgrading from a low end monitor, they will both be a really big and noticeable upgrade. For gaming, 3D modelling, and typical computer usage, these monitors will serve you fine. Just look for features that appeal to you, and double check that the panel quality is good as well.
  4. What have you looked at? Do you have a budget? What is your budget? What is available for purchase in your area, generally speaking? These are the ones that meet your requirements from brands I know of: Synology DS420+ QNAP TR-004 Drobo 5N2
  5. Form follows function. Do you want it to look pretty or work well? You can have both, but you'll pay for it monetarily. Choice is yours at the end of the day.
  6. Understandable. Generally, we are all restricted to what is available to purchase (unless you live in large markets) more than our personal budget or needs. The video is great to get an idea of what to look for in terms of usability and quirks.
  7. If you're going to have to take apart the monitor anyways to replace the panel, you'll have an easier time finding the panel with the make and model which you can get by taking apart the monitor. Anyways, like @jaslion said, it's a $200 monitor. It'll probably cost an unreasonable amount for a replacement panel.
  8. You are correct. Fulla 2 does not have a microphone input. Here's a video that includes the EPOS GSX 300, as well as a bunch of other common products.
  9. It has a microphone and headphone jack. https://www.schiit.com/products/fulla-1
  10. What is available to you? How much is the Creative G5 for you? Because if $100USD is expensive, then you're not really going to get anything decent. Most decent DACs are around $70-100USD. If you need to save money, you just need a DAC and not an amp. An amp isn't necessary for the Sennheiser Game One's.
  11. Why do PCIe lanes have nothing to do with NVMe devices? Does the technology not use the PCIe bus? How is that applicable anecdotal evidence for this specific scenario?
  12. If it's hard to come by new, you'll have to consider that. Sometimes, you make your purchase decision based on what is available. Why are you not a fan of VA panels? Each panel type has their pros and cons, but they also vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. (A really good VA panel can be better than a bad TN or IPS panel, and vice versa) Each certification is separate from each other. Having one certification does not automatically mean it is for something else. The website looks like it only states it is G-Sync Compatible. Here are the G-Sync levels: https://
  13. Use something metallic, like a screwdriver or key, and short the pins on the motherboard for the power switch. If shorting it works, then your case's power switch/cable is the problem. Also check if the cables for the power switch are on properly, positive to positive and ground to ground.
  14. Is it just your AIO, mouse, keyboard, and USB headphones turning off? You can try using artificial software to create a high power draw on both the CPU and GPU. Prime95 for the CPU and Furmark for the GPU.
  15. What is your budget? Generally, you either pick fast refresh rate or high fidelity. If you want both, it's still a compromise and you would have to pay a premium for it. A simple search would have answered your question: https://www.amd.com/en/technologies/free-sync & https://www.techspot.com/article/1630-freesync-2-explained/
