  1. Or press the off button. Maybe check the monitor settings via it’s OSD, maybe it has something built in?
  2. That was a legitimate question, the person didn’t know why and they found out by asking.
  3. You could mess around in the bios to ensure any energy saving features are enabled and performance enhancing ones are disabled, if there are any.
  4. Apple is fine but the world needs Rossmann and alike to keep them on their toes. Repairability is great but waterproofing, durability and stability are better. No need to fix something if it doesn’t easily break. In the end go with what works for you and not based on one persons opinion.
  5. Great! That is the best thing you can do other than selling your existing sticks and buying new kits of 4 sticks or two larger capacity sticks. All three ways are equally valid and generally work. Kits are always the best way but failing that two additional matching sticks is the next best thing.
  6. You won’t know for sure until you buy the sticks, if they are matching then this increases your chances greatly but it isn’t possible to predict it.
  7. Put them back in 2 and 4 until the new RAM arrives then put the new (hopefully matching) RAM in 1 and 3.
  8. I have the 2s, which are brilliant BTW, only missing a few pointless features of the 3s. I would never consider them for gaming, as mine are stereo and my Corsair headphones do a way better job, it is just as you described above. My gaming headphones are worn, fraying and the wireless battery has stopped working. But the sound is still perfect. My advice use the Sony for music or to give quiet in noisy places. Get a proper set of gaming headphones for gaming if you have to replace yours, otherwise keep on going with your gaming ones if they work.
  9. It is probably a bit of both, the PC is older now so “run in” and I am also engaged in what I am doing and not hearing coil whine as I am not “sensitive” to it anymore with these parts. I still hear odd noises every now and then but generally I am used to how it sounds and comfortable with it.
  10. Also you get used to it over time. I had major issues with coil whine when I first built my rig. My rig is knocking on 2.5 years old and I have not noticed issues for a very long time.
  11. If you can afford it then why not? Will it be the best FPS per $ spent? No it won't but you will probably get the most FPS you can with the CPU, just those last few will be very expensive. I have the 8600 and the most powerful card I would personally pair with it is a 5700. It can handle a 5700XT but the 4-10 extra frames would be a bit expensive for my tastes...
  12. I pretty much completely avoid AAA titles. I’m replaying Monkey Island games, something I do every 3-5 years, long enough and enough games to forget how to do some puzzles but enough to flow through the story quickly and enjoyably. I also play Broken Sword, Runaway and a few other series in the same way. My RX580 is powerful enough to get plenty out of Skyrim, which I also binge when I have a weekend for it. Im too old and slow it seems for Online multiplayer games, I would rather be playing my old games.
