  1. I'm currently building a new pc with the following specs: Asus X390-PLUS GAMING (WI-FI) Intel i9-9900K TeamGroup 4x8gb DDR4 2400mhz (32gb total) Corsair CX650M ASUS RTX 2060 The following components are tested working in an alternate pc: RTX 2060 Corsair CX650M TeamGroup ram I have tested the pc in the case and outside it, both with and without the gpu plugged in. Currently when the psu is on and plugged into the components, the motherboard rgb lights up as well as the onboard LED on the gpu. When turning the pc on with
  2. Anyone have specific recommendations for a microphone setup? I plan on using it for more or less discord and zoom, basically only vocal My requirements would be: decently robust, decent audio, and low background noise pickup (dynamic mics and similar) I don't mind spending more for quality, but since I'm not recording audio with it I'd prefer a lower cost total price. My current theoretical list is as follows: Mic: XM8500 ~$35 Interface: UM2 or similar ~$50 Arm: ~$15 XLR cable: ~$10 I don't have a lot of experience with XLR microphones, so any input
  3. They are, but applications like blender do not detect a GPU, So I would assume installing the pro drivers would fix that, though it might be some other error
  4. Insert other media Specs: i5 7400 RX 480 4GB Latest Version of Pop! OS I was recently attempting to install amd gpu drivers on a new installation of pop! os when these errors occured. I have created a fresh copy of pop! os and attempted to install again with the same result. Keep in mind I am relatively new to linux so I may have missed obvious troubleshooting steps or even steps to install in the first place. Thanks In advance :)
  5. Granted. Your pot pie wasn't as nasty, but it caused an allergic reaction leading to anaphylactic shock. I wish 3.5" bays could hold two 3.5" drives.
  6. I own both a Pi 3B and Pi 4 4gb with Retropie, both using a decent sd card. Neither of them seem to have a difference in booting, but some load times might be faster on the pi 4. I'm going to guess that its the SD card being slow, but it might not make any difference as the Pi doesn't boot exceptionally fast. But if the boot and loading times are very slow, my guess is that the SD card is holding the Pi back.
  7. For storage you could get one of these: https://www.amazon.com/Seagate-Portable-External-Hard-Drive/dp/B07CRG7BBH/ or similar, but for performance there's not much that will help unless your system is having thermal issues.
  8. Depending on the game, the 1080ti should be able to keep up pretty well. Most games should be able to be ran at at around high settings at 144hz(sometimes medium), although some newer AAA games are horribly optimized, and you'll get lower framerates, but since this monitor supports freesync that shouldn't be an issue. For the majority of games this is a pretty good pairing. Value-Wise, you'd have to figure out if its worth it for you, but since the price is pretty cheap, in my opinion it is.
  9. Banned for perpetuating the societal construct known as a "name"
  10. Specs: RX 480 4GB I5-7400 2x4gb 2666mhz ddr4 Thermaltake something-or-other 600W MSI B250M Bazooka Windows 10 64 Bit Problem: Recently, I was adjusting my GPU fan curve in the Radeon Software, when I decided to change the limits on the GPU. I did not overclock the gpu, but rather set set the vram, clock speed, and power consumption limits to 150% for hopefully a little more performance. When I clicked apply, (At this point the fan curve was already applied) the Display turned black. I have tried multiple cables, gpu output slots, etc, to no avail.
  11. Case wise- I recommend the Phanteks P400A or P300A, as the P400A is the same case you've picked out, but it has a mesh front for a lot better airflow and thermals. Right now though, the P400A is sold out, so a very similar case would be the P300A, but the P400A is better if you can find it.
