  1. My new network card came recently!

    It uses the Intel AX200NGW network card. It got warm during testing, so I slapped a heatsink on  it:

    For  some reason though, I haven't noticed any improvement in network performance even after installing the correct drivers. My PC is around ten feet away from an Google Wifi cluster router,  and our house uses a Gigabit ethernet connection. What could be causing this problem? Tagging @Windows7ge on this.

  5. I strongly recommend Spigen phone cases. I've had them for my (now dead) Mate 9 and  my current Pixel 3 XL. They're pretty  slim and don't add a lot of thickness to the phone, and they're some of the best cases I've witnessed at surviving impacts. I cannot tell you how many times I've dropped my phone, only to have that case save it.

      I've had a Spigen case for my past 2 phones (Galaxy S6 and S8), and they're the best cases I've ever used. Very slim and comfortable to hold, but still very protective. And they look great too!

      I'ma have to try them out, my $90 slim otterbox disintegrated in six months

    BTW--the keyboard was sticky, and the inside was...also sticky. I wore gloves  on that one.

  8. Found this video--they basically put a Slotket in an original Xbox and slapped a 1.4 GHz Tuatlin  processor in it, as well as soldering on more memory:

      is it actually faster ( more fps ) or just theoretically more powerfull?

      @Drama LamaApparently, it doesn't help much in Xbox games, but the extra CPU power  and memory is needed for things like 720p video playback.

      anything for the xbox 360 that's similair? 

      went to play a game of forza on my old 360 and it kept crashing, idk what it's from, I cleared cache, changed hdd, installed updates, so I'm assuming the chip overheated at some point and just can't handle launching games anymore.
