  1. Hey guys, I just ordered the Silverstone arm11sc to mount my Dell 2417DG 23.8" monitor. I just want to confirm that I won't run into any issues mounting this before following through with the order. I know my monitor supports 100 x 100 VESA mounts, and the arm11sc seems to have holes for 75 x 75 along with 100 x 100... I just want to make sure that this mount would be ok. I just realized that the arm11sc seems to be a little old and I want to make sure that my more modern monitor won't have any compatibility issues. Anyone have any other suggestions regarding VESA mounts for my mon
  2. So I unplugged the coax cable from the g1100 and I lost internet connection....
  3. What's the easiest way to tell whether my g1100 is connected to the ONT either by ethernet or coax? Because im sitting next to the g1100 right now and there's indeed a coax cable plugged into that port on the router.... as for ethernet cables, I have 3 plugged into the router.... one for my computer, one for my xbox, and the third is for a tv downstairs. I'm sorry now I'm just ultra confused
  4. So I think I was reading that I need to connect the nighthawk with the g1100 because the g1100 is connected to the OTN via coax. If so, should I follow the steps found on this website? https://www.dslreports.com/forum/r31057540-Networking-HOW-TO-Bridge-G1100-So-your-Router-becomes-Primary
  5. So I'm reading a lot of stuff online and its making me really confused. I thought setting up this AC2300 was going to be as simple as plugging in the ethernet cable to my modem and logging into the router settings and voila all done.... apparently that's not the case. So I have a Verizon Quantum Gateway G1100. Do I just need to plug the ethernet cable into the port labeled "internet" on the nighthawk, and the other end of the ethernet cable into the "WAN" port on the g1100? Then proceed with using the setup genie for the nighthawk? I'm also confused because I'm reading
  6. Also take a look at this thread. They explain what that that 4 pin male connector is for.
  7. Hey guys! I know it's a bit late, but I actually had the same issue when I first built my PC a year ago! You guys need to connect the cable that runs along the front panel to your PSU via a SATA Male Connector to PSU in order to get the front panel RGB strip to work The power button LED is indeed linked to the front panel connector found on your motherboard as you mentioned so make sure that those are all placed appropriately. You can look up tutorials online. My motherboard came with a g-connector which made things a bit easier. And Listere, I'm pretty sure
  8. Hey man! I appreciate the help. I forgot I posted this thread obviously as this wasposted a year ago when I built my PC. So long story short, I went about 2 months just believing that I had a DoA tower. Then one weekend morning, I mustered up enough energy to open up my tower and take out the power supply (as noted in that first thread you shared, the OPer states that the tower is pretty small making it a pain to get into the power supply unit and dealing with all the cable management stuff, hence why i didnt bother for a few months) I did some investigation and I tried plugging that cable att
  9. I'm getting the AC2300 Nighthawk tomorrow and I'm kind of confused where I'll be plugging the ethernet cable that comes with it. So I understand I'm plugging the yellow cable that comes with it into the port that's clearly labeled "internet" on the nighthawk, but where do I plug the other end to? Do I plug it into the LAN or WAN port on my Verizon Modem/Router? I have the FIOS-G1100. After getting everything set up, I should proceed to transfer my wired cables from the LAN ports in the G1100 and plug them into the LAN ports of the Nighthawk correct? Does it matter? just Genuinely c
  10. Mhhhhm. That definitely was my gut feeling based on the abundance of reviews I’ve watched on the pc37x/pc38x. I think the virtuosos are really elegant looking headsets and I guess it’s a plus being able to switch from wireless to wired, but I feel like there’s inevitably going to be some type of tradeoff with them particularly in the performance department which is my highest priority. Thank you so much for helping me feel even more confidant than I already was with the pc37x!
  11. awesome, thank you so much for the input! I’m going with my gut feeling as I placed my order in for the pc37x last night. I’ve just watched too many reviews over the past two months of people claiming that the pc37x and pc38x are the best gaming headsets you could possibly get with limited complaints. Although it seems that wireless headsets have made significant strives over the past decade, i still dont trust them entirely and i feel like theres inevitably going to be some tradeoff. As for the gift card, I ended up using it on the Creative pebble plus 2.1 speaker and subwoofer c
  12. do you think the creative pebble plus solution would be significantly better than using the built in audio on my second monitor? as mentioned, i’m using an Acer H213H which is like a 10 year old monitor. I know people say built in speakers on monitors typically aren’t that good, but i mean I don’t think these are teeeeerrible. Although, I would like an audio solution that went just a bit louder than these built in speakers and with a little more clarity
  13. Awesome. Thank you guys so much for the input, that was actually extremely helpful. As for the Logitech Z313s, they do look compelling as they are coming from a big name company, my only thing is it seems that they wont ship for a week or two off of amazon and i’m slightly impatient if i’m being honest haha. Thus, the creative pebble plus did grab my attention as they could be shipped to me in two days. my only concern is the quality as i’m unsure of how reputable of a source they are coming from since i’ve never heard of the company. Nonetheless, you both have been ext
  14. So I got a $50 gift card for Amazon for Christmas and I think I want to use it to finally get some speakers for my computer as I’ve been switching to the built in speakers on my second monitor when I’m just watching videos or twitch or something. (My second monitor is a Acer H213H, I know old af but gets the job done). Can anyone recommend me a solid speaker solution that will definitely be an upgrade from using my second monitor’s built in speakers? Will it definitely be worth the $50? I know I want to use the gift card on something to upgrade my pc set up, I just don’t know what.
  15. Hey everyone. So long story short, I was planning on getting Sennhesier x Drop’s PC38x gaming headsets for Christmas but found out that I would have to wait until mid February to be able to get them because of the high demand. So I was planning on just settling with the PC37x since it seems like most people say the difference between the two is only really noticeable when it comes to music, which i dont really care about since i’m mostly interested in having clean and precise gaming audio for FPSs. Now my friend is trying to convince me to look into the Corsair Virtuoso SE that’s o
  16. I'm indeed in the US. Wow, I never looked into this one, but this looks like an awesome headset. I would love a sennheiser x massdrop headset as they've been on my radar for months now, but slightly out of my price range considering I already spent a lot more on my PC build than I had originally planned. That being said, I'm also thinking about waiting a few more weeks to expand my price range a little and get a higher quality headset such as these. Great recommendation thank you! Two questions... could you explain to me what open back means exactly and would I have to
  17. I'm sorry, I should've specified I'm looking for a gaming headset, that being something with a microphone. That's my fault and I knew someone was gonna get tripped up on that only after I posted this thread. I appreciate your help though, those do look like some pretty solid headphones no doubt.
  18. So recently I've noticed my Sades SA926T have a horrible mic bleed whenever I use them on PC. Kinda bummed out because I don't experience any of the following issues when I use them on console. The microphone is simply just picking up on every little sound as it's picking up noises across my house. They also are picking up on gameplay audio all the time now that I am on PC, and the microphone is constantly picking up on peoples voices and my friends can claim they can hear people talking to me while I'm playing a different game. I'm kind of annoyed having to constantly play around with volumes
  19. I'm starting to think I have a faulty tower, as I've reached the conclusion that there is no reason for the front panel RGB strip to not light up if the RGB circle around the power button seems to be working fine. Oh well, like I said, I feel like too much RGB and colors looks tacky anyways
  20. Hello everyone, So I sort of have a non issue on my hands. So I recently just completed my first PC build, and everything seems to be running better than I expected for everything to come out. My issue is that I can get the ring around my power button to light up with RGB, but I can't get the front panel RGB strip to light up. I think I have everything plugged into the motherboard correctly now, as I just rearranged the Power LED cables and that got the Power button RGB issue solved, but that leaves a power LED slot open on my G Connector which I suspect indicates that I need to pl
  21. Hello everyone! I'm planning on getting the Gigabyte Z390 Aorus Pro Wifi ATX LGA1151 motherboard. I already have the Intel i7 8700k CPU and I plan on using the NH-D15 CPU cooler. Can anyone make me a recommendation for what type of RAM to use? I plan on using 2 x 8gb sticks in my build. I'm just confused on how frequency/timings/CAS latency works and how these impact the efficiency of memory. I want to use my PC for mostly gaming (games like Rust, Battlefield, Squad, Escape from Tarkov) while also having a PC that can help use other programs related to conducting research and pulli
  22. awesome. Thank you so much for your input! I think what you’re telling me makes a lot of sense and I think i’m going to switch to your build. And my bad, i usually manually write “purchased” when posting the PCPP link, but it wasn’t initially allowing me when I first posted it. But, I just went into PCPP right now and figured out how to mark something as purchased in their website, so thank you for letting me know about that!
  23. All good no worries. And what do you think about the NF-P14s and the NF-P12 I used in my last response? And I probably should've mentioned that I already bought the CPU and case... I got the CPU for $290, and the case was $90. Hmmm you seem to be the second person that thinks that this case has limited ventilation and I don't blame you, I'm just hoping my hardware doesn't get too hot in there, hence why I'm trying to compensate with the NH-D15. As for the memory change, I think I'm definitely going to go with the ones you've suggested. Everyone keeps saying that Evo 970 storage is overpriced,
