    bellabichon got a reaction from FN_Empty in Graphics Not Running But Integrated Is? Please Help!   
    Open the Nvidia Control Panel (should be an option when you right click anywhere on the desktop), go to Manage 3D Settings, and change your preferred graphics processor to "High-performance NVIDIA Processor". Alternatively, you could also select which GPU to use on a per-program basis (i.e. if you wanted Google Chrome to use the iGPU to save battery life).

    What do you intend to do with other cards in your system? It should work fine, but all the cards would be functioning independently.

    bellabichon got a reaction from MarvintheParrot in 32 inches too big for 1080p?   
    Yep, increasing screen size but keeping resolution the same will definitely make the image look blurrier, because you'll have fewer PPI (Pixels Per Inch). For a 1080p monitor at a desk, the largest I would go is 27". Any bigger and I think you'd find it uncomfortable to use.

    What are your full system specs? Any decent B550 or X570 board should do you fine.

    Gonna need a bit more info here. What GPU and CPU do you have? My best guess would be that your PC is running off of integrated graphics instead of your dedicated GPU.

    Emulation of current-gen consoles (i.e. PS4/5 or Nintendo Switch) is pretty unusable right now, save for a few titles that have had a lot of optimization work done. Your best bet is grabbing a used PS4 from Craigslist.

    bellabichon got a reaction from TheCoder2019 in How SHOULD I start a YouTube Channel?   
    Either way works. Realistically, your first video probably isn't going to get much traction. But creating a channel trailer or something similar is good way to help plan out what you're going to do.
    Definitely. Even if your objective isn't popularity, producing high-quality content isn't easy.
    Daily uploads work best with YouTube's algorithm, but if you're not focused on channel growth then it's up to you.
    No, but it will take some time to learn how to do it well. There are a ton of different solutions, but if you're looking to learn, grab a free 7-day trial of Premiere Pro and go to town for a bit. There are video tutorials online covering basically every question you could possibly have. 
    Again, ten minutes or more will perform best in YouTube's algorithm, but it's ultimately up to you.

    bellabichon reacted to Fasauceome in Unpopular opinion: Rocket Lake Is Fine   
    This is just them catching up to AMD, who has offered ram and CPU overclocking on non-premium chipsets since ryzen dropped. AMD went on to get boards that incorporate features like thunderbold (when that became an open standard) and other premium aspects when board partners started taking them seriously. There was only really a lull in features at first gen.
     
    Intel made some big promises for 11th gen. Ultimately it was wishful thinking, leading to no reason for 10th gen owners to upgrade.
     
    Availability is a strong point in Intel's favor. We will see if this continues after the pandemic's effects pass, though. 
     
    Once again, them playing catch up to AMD. They're new features, but only new to Intel.
     
    Intel used the "fastest gaming CPU ever" line in their previous marketing, clearly having the best gaming performance is super important to them, and if they would have been able to get the crown back, they would have absolutely done so.
     
    Bad, good, the product quality is relative. Relative to 10th gen, the product is actually the same. But expectations exist, and I find it pretty reasonable to decry 11th gen's release because it doesn't bring anything of real value to the table. If anything it muddied the water (m.2 slots inactive when using 10th gen CPUs on 500 series boards, weird memory frequency locks on 400 series boards, uncertainty continuing on 10nm, etc.) and it can be seen as a step backwards in some ways because of the difficulty in marketing.
     
    I don't think Intel is being unfairly judged. AMD keeps moving forwards, intel keeps moving sideways. Will this last forever? Probably not, so people shouldn't latch on to one brand or the other with their loyalty. But criticizing Intel has looked to be pretty par for the course this generation.

    Are there any other tasks that you'll be doing, besides gaming? Also, what would your approximate budget be? I'd probably recommend a 5600X or 10600K.

    I ask because my advice is always to deal locally. Usually easier to make a quick sale, and you have a much lower chance of getting scammed.

    No problem. There's an auction for one on Ebay US starting at $220 right now, but you could probably get a bunch more if you didn't do an auction. What's the local market like in the Chicago area?

    bellabichon got a reaction from Natty Ice in Can a PC be damaged if you unplug PSU   
    It's not best practice, but modern computers are designed to handle random shutdowns like that. You should try to always shut down your PC in Windows, and if you live in a place where power outages are common, you might want to consider a UPS (battery backup for PC).

    What are the full specs of the laptop? That looks like a dying GPU to me, but you should try re-installing GPU drivers (and Windows).

    bellabichon got a reaction from lerodemmy in Can my GPU be water cooled easily?   
    Yes, you would need to take apart the GPU (essentially strip it down to just the PCB, install new thermal paste on the GPU, thermal pads on VRMs and memory chips, etc). After the card has been waterblocked, you'll need a pump, reservoir, radiator, and tubing.
     
    It can be pretty daunting, so if you're not comfortable taking apart a GPU right now, then custom watercooling might not be for you. 
     
    EDIT to answer your other question: Yes, it's definitely possible to just watercool the CPU (and maybe even add your GPU to the loop later). However, it involves many of the same things that watercooling a GPU requires, so I wouldn't recommend it if you're not comfortable.

    That's not super unexpected on that cooler. It's a CyberPower-branded Cooler Master 120mm AIO, which is somewhat underpowered when it comes to cooling the 10700k. What's the current fan configuration in your case? If you don't want to replace the AIO, getting some more airflow going could help with temps.

    Not unless the damage is so catastrophic that it fries a display output gpu-side. But I don't think I've ever heard of that happening.
