  3. @GoldenCape I do agree with @TheDankKoosh on the 2600 and 1070Ti; that would make for a powerful machine. I built mine a year ago and have a 1700 and 980Ti so your set up would be pretty similar for power, I don't think you would be disappointed especially know that AMD and the board partners have worked out the minor bugs with Ryzen. Good Luck and have fun, selecting the components was one of my favorite parts especially when finding deals like you did with your ram!
  4. I was going to suggest a Samsung like this Samsung CHG70 32-inch Curved Gaming Monitor (144Hz / 1ms) (LC32HG70QQNXZA) but after looking up the prices on on other sites in Australia it looks like the one you selected is a better deal besides it is likely a Samsung panel anyways based on the naming. I don't know much about AOC but I've seen their products advertised and considered buying one before I bought the one linked on sale.
  5. @HAIJD This is a bit more than the two you have listed but check out the Massdrop AKRacing Aero. I have a different model AKRacing Chair that I purchased through Massdrop around a year ago and wish this model had been available at that time (I think they started offering it a couple months ago). The style is similar to the E-Win chair you have linked but the quality and longevity are likely a bit higher on the AKRacing. The AKRacing has a 10 year Frame/5 year Chair/Parts Warranty, though the 10y/3y Warranty on the E-Win is much longer than I would have expected. As for your second choice, wel
  6. @DrThots you would't want to use regular WD-40 because of the materials you're dealing with but yes as long as it is a lubricant designed to work with the type of materials it should work though you may have to reapply after a certain amount of time, like every few months or so. As for the adhesive if the part that is squeaking is not supposed to slide or be removed that may be a better option, just be careful with both options, especially adhesive not to over spray.
  7. The lubricant should make it glide easier which "should" get rid of the squeak
  8. WD-40 and others make PTFE and Silicone based lubricants, I would pick up one that is safe for the type of plastic, metal, or vinyls you are dealing with. P.S. - Some smell awful so if you can purchase in person to "test" it I recommend doing so.
  9. Then if the option @CUDA_Cores suggested doesn't work just select the SSD. If Windows is installed on that drive then it is your boot drive.
  10. @awebos You may want to return it and get the LL Series kit, it looks like that comes with a Lighting Node Pro included. I think they look better and surprisingly it would actually be cheaper to do what you are trying to do. http://www.corsair.com/en-us/ll140-rgb-140mm-dual-light-loop-rgb-led-pwm-fan-2-fan-pack-with-lighting-node-pro
  11. I see what your saying, wow I'm surprised it isn't included in the box. If you look at the link below it appears people are ordering the Lighting Node Pro separately to do what you are talking about. That is a lot of money just to get 2 fans to light up the way you want. $80 for the 2 fan kit plus another $60 for the Lighting Node!!! For 2 fucking fans! http://www.corsair.com/en-us/hd140-rgb-led-high-performance-140mm-pwm-fan-twin-pack-with-controller
  12. Hello @awebos, I'm not certain but I'm pretty sure that the correct nodes are included in the 2 pack 140 mm (or 3 pack for 120 mm) kit. Did you buy 2 individually packaged fans? http://www.corsair.com/en-us/cooling/hd-series-fans
  13. Mine too! I thought it was my connection because along with the audio I was getting horrible resolution as well. Only ONE pixel, I mean REALLY!?!
  14. They are at CES...so... Colton Entertainment Studios? JK
