  1. As long as they are High Pressure fans, it should not matter much (unless you use fans that have a very poor design and build quality). But why would you buy that case? Is it just for the looks? Because you could get a much better case in the same budget.
  2. Oh man, I'd love a pair of headphones that can multiply computers. I'd be so rich xD In all seriousness, though, you should check out: https://www.soundguys.com/shure-aonic-50-review-30744/ https://www.soundguys.com/phiaton-900-legacy-headphones-review-42620/ https://www.soundguys.com/jabra-elite-85h-review-23477/ All of these have multipoint that works well.
  3. Alcohol based cleaning products for TVs tend to work really well for removing soft drinks...
  4. The cheapest *best* CPU cooler would be the Scythe Fuma 2 (in my humble opinion), and even that exceeds the price of a Hyper 212 by about 20 USD. https://www.amazon.com/Original-Design-Towers-Cooler-SCFM-2000/dp/B07QMK5R45 If you want an air cooler, go for the Cryorig R1 (either version is fine), Bequiet DarkRock Pro 4 (it works just fine in my system), or, you know, the still KING Noctua NH-D15 (Black, because it looks good). If you want to go with an AIO, there are plenty of options out there. If you want to keep your temps in check without trading off performanc
  5. Might not be a good idea, though, depending on what you currently have. PSUs can generate electrical noise, and depending on your motherboard, voltage regulator or Surge protectors (if you use those), Amplifier, Audio Interface, MIDI controllers, etc. the noise might leek into the finished product. I know it's very rare for this to happen, but if you do not have a good PSU, the chances of this happening increases. If your current PSU is well made, with good enough components, that will not be a problem, but it's worth looking into it.
  6. Funnier things is, if you Google the Brand they mentioned (Technow Computer Group), the first result is "TechNow Computer Training and Internet Security Training". I just find that incredibly funny :))
  7. Neither, but I'm a bit biased (I hate the sound profile of all Sennheiser headphones, I just can't stand it). I would recommend Audio-Technica ATH-SR50BT. They sound great (better than the ones you mentioned, for sure), are very comfortable, and look better. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07MC1G7TY/ref=asc_df_B07MFMGX191617501600000/?tag=pjuk-amazon.co.uk-21&creative=22374&creativeASIN=B07MFMGX19&linkCode=df0&smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&th=1
  8. Another update, if anyone is interested: The Motherboard died, it was burnt apparently. And guess what, it cannot be swapped out, as Lenovo does not have any Legion 7 motherboards in stock. Apparently this is a very common problem, so anyone interested in a Legion 7, please keep this in mind.
  9. Is your CPU throttling? Check your temps and clocks while gaming, see what's going on there...
  10. no worries. Sorry this happened, it sucks. Good news, CPUs have normal prices. At least it's not your GPU lol
  11. Yup, the CPU looks toast. Even if all the pins make contact, you will most definitely have stability issues (at least). I can see an indentation on the right side of the CPU as well (in your last pic), and that does not look right. I don't know exactly how this could have happened, other than the waterblock being mounted way too tight.
  12. The corner being cracked like that is definitely not normal. Also, the CPU PCB itself seems to be bent. What cooler are you using, and how much force did you use during mounting? Seems like you screwed it in way too hard, my man.
  13. I would suggest doing this on your router, rather than on your PC. Or, you know, use Windows Defender (or any other AV you use).
  14. There are phono preamps that have headphone amps/dacs built in. I know it's not the same, but it's a whole lot easier. If you can fit it into your budget, go for the Meze Empyrean. You will NOT regret it.
  15. There isn't much difference between the Solo and the 2i2, except for the extra Input. My use case is kinda different than what most people use it for, so I needed the 2i2 (I use the 2i2 for a Guitar, but most of the time I use it as an interface between my turntable and my Speakers when listening to vinyl). However, I have heard mixed opinions, as some of my friends swear that the 2i2 is better for Headphones than the Solo, and that the Mic Preamp is better. I tried both, they seemed the same lol.
