    I don't think a mousepad would have that effect and you certainly shouldn't be looking for any kind of medical advice online, especially on this forum.
    It's likely all in your head.

    Well then you shouldn't have a problem, I don't think. I'm not an expert, though.

    bungusboy81 got a reaction from Mel0nMan in Monitor wont go to sleep, when I hit sleep in the power section of the start menu it just sends me back to the lock screen   
    Seems like shutting down the computer and then turning it back on (not restarting) fixed it. Classic. Does that mean it was a background app?

    bungusboy81 got a reaction from Mel0nMan in How did I ever play on 60fps?   
    It's a 1080p 144hz 24" panel, so yeah, pretty similar. I have an nvidia card though so I use gsync with it.

    bungusboy81 got a reaction from Slayerking92 in Is there a way to check if I have a free m.2 slot without having to open my case?   
    I have a prebuilt that I'm looking to upgrade the storage of from a random ass laptop 256GB SSD with read/write speeds on par with HDDs to an actually competent 1TB SSD and I was wanting to know if there was a way to check if I have an open m.2 or pcie slot to install my SSD into without having to open the case because I don't have an anti static thing yet and I don't wanna fuck anything in my computer up. Do I have to open it up to check?

    bungusboy81 reacted to BigGamerLegend in Thinking of upgrading RAM, but I don't know much about memory. Some help?   
    1. You probably don't really need to upgrade, but mileage varies. If you notice in task manager that ram is being highly utilized, maybe upgrade, but 12 gigs is pretty solid.
    2. As far as upgrades are concerned, that power supply is a little on the low end for wattage, and doesn't give you a lot of headroom in the future for upgrades.
    3. As far as ram installation is concerned, it's fairly hard to go wrong. Avoid static, as you have mentioned, and make sure it's running in dual channel. That gives you the best performance. It varies by board, but if you have 4 slots on your motherboard, start by slotting the first stick in the slot furthest from the CPU, and alternate empty slots, so in this case [CPU] [empty] [stick] [empty] [stick]
    4. Your hardware isn't super power hungry, so on sheer wattage alone, you should be straddling the line. However, 380 watts is definitely on the low end, and prebuilts do not have a great track record of having great psus. I'd say to upgrade if you plan on changing parts. 80+ platinum by the way refers to how power efficient the power supply is at getting power from the wall to the components, 80+ platinum is on pretty much the highest end of the scale. Swapping psu isnt always fun, but I dont see a way around it if there is an upgrade planned. 
    5. Be careful but firm with the parts. They're not crazy fragile but you obviously dont want to be stupid with them. Check the manual with stuff. Before you make changes, do some research, watch a tutorial. Avoid static prone environments where possible.

    bungusboy81 got a reaction from DSD27 in What is GPU hotspot temperature?   
    I recently got a new PC and I downloaded HWiNFO, and one of the tabs in the sensors says "GPU hotspot temperature." What is that?
    Thank you in advance!

    bungusboy81 reacted to Seban in Can running a computer at full load for a long time decrease the lifespan?   
    Alright so first of all, those games definitely don't max out your GPU nor CPU. 
    Second of all, even if they were maxed out, it wouldn't decrease its lifespan unless the temperature is at like a constant 85c.
     
    So you're fine.

    Well you can't really tell the lifespan of pc parts, some will brake sooner than other.
    everything under 100c is considered okay.

    bungusboy81 reacted to minibois in Difference between integrated GPUs and dedicated GPUs?   
    The fact that one is built into a CPU, while the other is a large piece of equipment with its own components (most notably its own memory, while an integrated GPU shares the system memory).
    More components (like the memory), larger (so can output more heat) and more
    Worse != unusable
     
    90% of normal consumers do not need a dedicated GPU, so why get a better thing that won't improve your experience?

    bungusboy81 reacted to Brok3n But who cares? in Difference between integrated GPUs and dedicated GPUs?   
    TL;DR: Igpus share space, cooling, and power with a CPU. They an only get so large, so hot, and can only draw so much power. Igpus are commonly used in builds that don't require more powerful dedicated GPUs, such as pcs used for spreadsheets, Microsoft office, or just general use. 

    Integrated GPUs are embedded inside the cpu die. Many office builds where people aren't gaming will utilize Igpus as a cheap way to get video output. Basically they're usually used for people who don't need, don't want, or can't afford dedicated graphics. Dedicated graphics cards are usually (The design is inherently better, but if you're comparing a 20 y/o dedicated gpu to integrated graphics from say, an 11900k, it's just not the same) better because there's a lot more space for the GPU- the die/chip can be larger, the cooler, power delivery, ram, ect. all can be far larger than in a cpu. GPUs can also pump out a lot of heat. An Igpu is already sharing space- and cooling- with the rest of the CPU. Giving it it's own space and cooler can let the chip run unconstrained.
