  1. BitWit does this on his channel fairly often. went as far as a couple dollar frog mouse from like a dollar store vs logitech gaming gear
  2. Canadian winter overclocking challenge "Who needs sub ambient when ambient is sub-zero?" Air cooled PC, outside with Noctua industrial fans vs liquid cooled or AIO system to see how far below zero the computers can run before locking up.
  3. so you assumed "logo" meant "fan spec" some people are so rabid about proving others wrong they just can't see correct information in front of them lol
  4. on the specific fan they are using (the BeQuiet SW3) the logo is on the impellor which is the intake for the fan. If we are talking junk fans from random companies like you are showing they can be different
  5. exhaust side has no logo, same as your rear fan. I'd place it in the rearmost top spot so you won't rob airflow from your cpu cooler
  6. using something like Android Studio https://developer.android.com/studio/run/emulator will let you specify hardware of the device so they can't look into your PC hardware but it all depends on how the survey app is programmed and what step it is looking for your IP. If it is looking at the "sent from" ip address then it doesn't matter that you are running an emulator and also explains how it can deny you access by using a list of known VPN ip addresses. The other option for the app is a device ID search which can send a bulk data set back of things like the hardware IDs, location data, IP addr
  7. it is significantly more conductive, it's even more conductive than humans
  8. rubber raft would help add resistance between the water and the power source so path of least resistance in theory does track. The most likely case is the salt water is a better conductor than humans or sharks so the power will flow through the water to ground and the shark dies because it is the conductor between the water and power source.
  9. You really need to clarify your questions, long winded with little information isn't going to be helpful solving your problem. What it sounds like is you have a 1080p screen, were running 1440p Nvidia dynamic super resolution (dsr) and the icons looked alright but now that you have gone to 4k dsr everything is blurry and the spacing is all off. Windows cares about your resolution because it hass text smoothing, anti aliasing for icons and controls window sizing and scaling of programs. By using Nvidia DSR you are screwing with the way all of that is being displayed. T
  10. what motherboard and bios are you running? some bios-es (bios-i?) have a separate section for selecting the harddrive to show in the "boot device selection" HDD slot.
  11. is this the BIOS fan control screen you are using? the bottom left has the control system for your fan headers. set it manually to PWM for 4 pin and your Nexus hub, voltage for the 3pin fans regardless of if the 3pin fans are plugged into 4 pin headers the motherboard will switch modes to the one you manually set. Typically this happens when set to auto but some fans don't read correctly. from #1 symptom the 3pin fans are set to pwm and the fan control curve starts too low to get the motor to turn so it twitches and never starts. for #2 the so
  12. neither one is going to have great airflow. The first one has the angled strip of mesh on the left of the front which lets air into the case, the second one has just taken that mesh and moved it in front of the front middle fan. Both cases have a bit of an airgap between the mesh and the fans so all the front fans will have air to move but they are far from a full mesh panel coming into the case. If the case comes with all the fans in your other image I would lose the bottom 2 fans as they really won't do anything for the system except look nice lighting up the GPU, have the front
  13. "budget" is a tough term to understand when you have a 3070 and 10900k. What is your actual spending limit? for me I'd be looking at a trio of https://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-Monitor-Response-FreeSync-G27Q-SA/dp/B08CS3X1R9/ref=sr_1_11?dchild=1&keywords=27in+1440p&qid=1611454313&s=pc&sr=1-11 high refresh when you want it and 1440p, a 3070 shouldn't have any issues running these. But for around the same price (like $100 more) I'd prefer https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Double-49-Inch-Monitor-LC49RG90SSNXZA/dp/B07L9HCJ2V/ref=pd_sbs_2?pd_rd_w=AIkPe&p
  14. there are power filtering surge protectors which will prevent the popping and noise from other devices on the circuit you are using for the speakers. They start around $250 so it's often cheaper to go with a small UPS which should also isolate the devices plugged in for other things on the same circuit. Depending on how the UPS is designed it will act as a standard surge protector when power is coming from the wall, when the power fails it will switch to battery power and the battery supplies power to the outlets on the UPS. This is true for most cheap UPSs under $100 and won't solve you
