  1. SO a bit of backstory. My parents have had this laptop for about 7 years now and while system itself is still good the HDD is showing its age. The computer they use currently has windows 8.1 installed on it as that's what came with it from the factory. No here's my problem. i recently bought a 250GB SSD to replace their HDD and im trying to find the best way of installing windows 10 on it but have it be activated. I was thinking that i could just upgrade their 8.1 to 10, link it to a Microsoft account and then install windows 10 fresh on the SSD and log in with said Microsoft account. My worry
  2. So...in my experience this has led to linux switching to using the gpu for everything which has led to even worse battery life then what i had on the integrated gpu. It would basically make the computer unusable unless i had the power cord on me since it would only like an hour and a half on battery. with the integrated gpu i was getting better battery (Somewhere in the neighborhood of like 3 - 3.5 hours) but still nothing compared to what i get on windows.
  3. So, for a while ive been contemplating going back to Linux on my Razer Blade Early 2016 (GTX 970m). The only thing holding me back is that the last time i Installed Linux on my laptop it worked, however i was having terrible battery issues. The only thing that i can see being the reason why is the GPU which even if your not using it still sucks power from the system. this led to a experience so bad that i decided to go back to windows 10 once again, and like magic my battery troubles were fixed. I was wondering if anyone who knows Linux better than me would be able to help me find some sort of
  4. Another option besides this is to take out the CMOS battery (the circle battery on the MB) and put it back in. It dose the same thing but i find it easier.
  5. So my long time fave's, Audio Technica's ATH-M50x headphones have broke beyond repair and i am in the market for a new set of headphones. while i love the M50x's i want to branch out into other brands. my budget stands at around $250 and i'm looking for something that is wireless (APT-x is preferable) has good sound quality (around the level of the M50x, but not too picky on the flatness of the sound) and battery life and is at least as portable as my M50x's. I have no brand preference, right now i'm just trying to get general suggestions. P.S. Velour ear pads are preferred but no
  6. I thought z370 was the only chipset that is currently compatible with intel 8th gen.
  7. To clarify im only looking to upgrade my cpu, ram, motherboard and cooler. I Have a great graphics card that i dont plan on upgrading at this time. if i had to put a hard budget it would have to be at around $700 USD
  8. i dont really have any intention of overclocking. so do i really need a k chip?
  9. So my current CPU is a FX8350. Im looking to buy a new CPU motherboard and ram since those are the oldest components in my system. I do play games but i also do light productivity work. Im wondering what would be the best route for me to g right now seeing as how i haven't kept up with the CPU game. Essentially would it be better to go with Ryzen or Intel at this point?
  10. I'm thinking that's what it is as well. im looking into a new power supplies right now.
  11. So recently my PC has been shutting down under semi-heavy to heavy loads for example today i was playing Cities: Skylines and listening to spotify and it shutdown on its own. My PC isn't exactly the newest machine but i have tried to keep it as up to date as possible. My Specs, along with the year it was installed, are as follows: CPU: AMD FX 8350 (No OC) (2013) Cooler: Cryorig H7 (2017) GPU: ASUS GTX 970 STRIX (2015) Mobo: ASUS M5A990FX (2015) PSU: Corsair CX 500 (2013) RAM: Mushkin Blackline 12GB DDR3 (2013) Storage: Intel 128GB SSD (2015)
  12. I wanted to go Intel cause there really hasn't been much action on the AMD side of things and i want all the new features Intel processors have.
  13. im sticking with the gtx 970 as i just got it. Also what about DDR4? Is it worth the money to upgrade to that? And what about a processor?
