  1. With Gift Cards actually what happens is there is a time limit to spend them. Expiration date on the card means nothing. If you do not spend it within the timeline specified in the terms and conditions fine print, the money is then considered abandoned and it goes to the state government.
  2. <-- Thread Locked --> Only way will be to contact the owner of the iCloud account.
  3. If you can stretch your budget a bit, this would absolutely be worth it, I just got one myself and its a game changer.. like seriously a massive game changer... https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B08W152M1Q?psc=1&ref=ppx_yo2_dt_b_product_details If not, then something like one of these 2 would be great options as well. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B08MPS69S5/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 https://smile.amazon.com/NOUHAUS-Ergo3D-Ergonomic-Office-Chair/dp/B07L4ZQMDX/ref=sr_1_8?dchild=1&keywords=newhaus&qid=163190599

      Very nice!!! The way I see it, its a worthy investment though. I spend probably 80-90% of my day awake at my desk either working or doing other stuff, so having the king of chairs is a worth while investment for long term comfort. 

      Oh yeah definitely. Also avoiding back problems later on is a nice bonus.

      yeah they are bank, I think my dad bought one a few months back.
      my work went you can pick out a 300$ chair we aren't spending 500$+ per employee all over again

  5. Looking at the picture you provided, the Type C port is used to power the PC, so you won't be able to use that for the adapter, you will need a Type A connector as @mariushm mentioned. This would be a good option for that: https://smile.amazon.com/Anker-Ethernet-PowerExpand-Aluminum-Compatible/dp/B08CB1QNLT/ref=sr_1_8?crid=2ZIV10UWA87JL&dchild=1&keywords=usb+3+ethernet+adapter&qid=1631869836&sprefix=USB+3+Ethernet%2Caps%2C210&sr=8-8
  6. Anker is a good brand, but I'm a little worried as it doesn't list that I can find if its 3.X or 2.0 for its USB connection.
  7. It gets its power from the USB port itself. Also, can you post a link to it instead of a picture so we can check out the product page?
  8. Remember that with single fan tower coolers, you could always flip the fan and have it as pull instead of push as well. However, I do know the Fuma 2 has a cult like following and is an extremely popular dual tower budget cooler.
  9. Get a USB C ethernet adapter as long as the USB C is 3.0 or greater.. still some 2.0 C connectors out there.
  10. Scythe Fuma 2 would be a great option IMO. 137mm Wide, 155mm tall and has an offset that should prevent conflict with the RAM slots as it uses a 15mm slim fan there and a standard 25mm in the center. Images taken from the Tweaktown Review of the cooler found here: https://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/9223/scythe-fuma-2-cpu-cooler-review/index.html
  11. The top 2. Leave only the top one directly above your CPU cooler. Remove the other 2 in the top.
  12. Yep, remove those 2 forwards, they're hurting more than helping.
  13. Yea, the 3 140mm intake is more than enough then the rear and 1 top mounted directly above the CPU cooler is good. The 2 forward top mounted are sucking fresh air out before it ever has a chance.
