  1. SteelSeries QcK size medium standard thickness is the one I have used for years. Allows mouse to glide easy and is soft for your wrist.
  2. GPU?? or are you wanting to use integrated graphics? You can get a 1050ti for $150-200.
  3. PCPartPicker Part List Type Item Price CPU AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor $169.50 @ Amazon CPU Cooler be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 50.5 CFM CPU Cooler $86.46 @ B&H Motherboard MSI B450 TOMAHAWK MAX ATX AM4 Motherboard $114.99 @ B&H Memory Corsair Vengeance LPX 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory $76.98 @ Amazon
  4. I was doing Fold@Home the other day and my CPU was floating around 80-90 C so I would say 41C is a bit odd. Depends if the game is more CPU or GPU intensive.
  5. When installing RAM, always check the motherboard manual as it will tell you which slots to install your RAM into. I think on my motherboard it was the 2nd and 4th slot or something like that. Also go into BIOS and enable XMP profile.
  6. In the future you can use PC part picker, It will identify any issues surrounding compatability and possible BIOS updates that may be required. Its also good for pricing.
  7. Thats odd, I have a h150 and mine is silent no matter the load. Have you tried altering the speed in ICUE, is it possible you've changed a setting in the BIOS?? The only other suggestion would be to check if the cables are seated properly.
  8. Stock will do, I always have some Thermal Grizzly lying about and like to change it but there shouldn't be much difference. Just make sure you put the right amount on but not too much.
  9. In the past few weeks I've noticed that sometimes my PC will slow down, when checking task manager I noticed that some things were casing my CPU to use 100% of its power. The culprits are; Antimalware Service Executable, System interupts and Microsoft Compatability Telemetry. These all cause my cpu to ramp up to 100% for roughly 5 mins before dying down. Windows defender doesn't detect any malware or viruses, I've only downloaded off of legitimate websites with the lock symbol in the top. It never used to happen in the past 2 years of owning. I am on windows 10 Pro version 1909.
  10. For some reason I thought I had a 7700K but just noticed I actually have a 8700K Then I would say that a 9th gen is probably more suited for a 2080, i have a feeling there's probably less chance of a bottleneck, I mean at the end of the day its your decision and I probably would also upgrade if I had a 2080.
  11. Do you absolutely need the upgrade from a 8700K? I have a 7700K and it's more than capable of running AAA games and Folding@Home. What graphics card do you have also?
  12. I know that on the s10 there is a white dot in the same place that blinks when making a call, apparently it is something to do with the proximity sensor. To me it looks too big to be a dead pixel.
  13. Does anyone have any suggestions for a docking station that has USB's and a SD card reader that has quite a long cable.
  14. Which iPad do you have, also do you have the latest version of iTunes on your computer???
  15. This is a weird one I have my PC plugged into a power surge protected power strip. I also have a tower fan plugged into the same power strip. I have noticed when I turn my fan on/off it turns my keyboard light on/off. Can someone please explain how this happens? and how to prevent it?
  16. I have a Phillips BT50 Portable Speaker that I use as my PC's speaker, it has a mode which allows it to be plugged in via a 3.5mm jack. I also use a usb 2.0 to micro usb cable to power the speaker. My issue is when I download something on my HDD or move my mouse, I can hear the sound through my speaker. When I turn it off there is no noise. Can someone explain why????
  17. Yeah, that seems like a good one to go for.
  18. My task manager says my PC uses around 3.3GB when there is nothing running except windows 10 Pro, and I'm the only user and it says I use 595MB. However when I use chrome my usage goes upto 5.5GB and I use upto 1.6GB.
  19. May I ask what refresh rate you're after? and I'm guessing you want something with a low response time.
  20. Are you looking for a Ryzen or Intel chipset? Also do you want Radeon or GeForce GPU?
  21. Yeah, that PSU looks great plus its a 80+ Platinum so the efficiency is like 90% at 20%, 50% and 100% load
  22. I would get something like a Corsair or EVGA power supply with a rating of 80+ Gold or above. A PSU with a rating of 80+ is the lowest when it comes to efficiency and 80+ Titanium is the highest efficiency. If you have a price range I can make some suggestions for you, are we talking less than $100 or up to $200?
  23. If you use the battery pack with the Xbox controller you can use the USB cable to connect it to PC
