    How many fans are needed?

    One of the local stores just announced they'll be recieving some MSI 3X 3060 cards in a couple of weeks. I think I'll try to see if I can't snatch a couple of those, as the 3060 seems to be the best bang for your buck right now, if you can get one from a store that is. I like the option with...

    How many fans are needed?

    So I'm in the process of buying a new PC (Parts being difficult to get and all), and I want to buy some case fans. In this search I've come across several questions that I've had difficulties finding an answer to. So I turn to you guys, who have always been super helpful in the past. I'll be...

    Advice on new PC speakers

    Haven't checked here for a while, and I had no idea this thread had gotten so many new replies. Thank you everyone for all your suggestions. Unfortunately we didn't see a lot of them until after we already bought. We went with the Edifier R1700BT. Managed to find them for around 150$ USD (In...

    Advice on new PC speakers

    Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately they're a tad out of our pricerange here in Denmark :) We do not have an amplifier, no. It was something my wife looked into, because she came to the conclusion that if we got some better speakers not intended for PC, we'd need one. I fear though that...

    Advice on new PC speakers

    Hello everyone, Me and the wife are looking for a new pair of PC speakers, and could use some advice. First off, this is what we're considering: My wife has her eyes set on the Edifier R1280T. She's had bookshelf speakers before, and really liked it. I'm considering either the Logitech Z333...

    New build, need input/advice (Long ish post)

    Revised build. Both the SSD and the PSU really just represents whatever I can get when I'm buying the PC, and are not really final choices. The motherboard was a difficult choice for me. There seem to be tons of choices that all does quite fine and everything I need. I decided just to go for...

    New build, need input/advice (Long ish post)

    So I'm still not sold entirely on the Ryzen 7 3700X. Again, I have limited knowledg, so I might just not be seeing it. But comparing the two, it seems like a limited upgrade considering it's just shy of double the price. My systems usually last at least 5 years, and I'll be expecting the same of...

    New build, need input/advice (Long ish post)

    Thanks for your reply. I actually did watch the video in the link before you posted it, as I did want to find out which would be better for me. I'm unfortunately not super into all the tech stuff on this level, so it's still difficult for me to understand the actual differences. I think for me...

    New build, need input/advice (Long ish post)

    Thanks for the suggestions. The CPU you suggested is quite a bit more expensive then the one I chose. Almost 3 times I think where I'm from. Why do you suggest this one? The PC will be used for gaming primarily. For the GPU, not knowing what those things are, how long would the wait be you...

    New build, need input/advice (Long ish post)

    Hello everyone, Me and the wife need a couple of new PC's. To that end, I've been researching what components is hot right now. Before we pull any triggers though, I wanted some advice and input on the parts I've chosen, and the system as a whole. I've come up with this list. (PCpartpicker)...

    Where do you guys keep up on new tech?

    Hey everyone. I'm looking into buying a couple of new PC's for me and the wife. And instead of just outright asking for builds in here, I wanted to do some research myself first, maybe even put together a couple of builds before asking for advice and input. So my question is where do you guys...

    PC crashes after exiting specific game

    Just for anyone that cares. I tried with a new PSU and it ran without any problems for about a week. I then assumed it is either my old PSU or a cable from the PSU that was at fault. I put in my old one, and changed what I could. Luckily I have a modular (I think it's called) PSU, and it came...

    PC crashes after exiting specific game

    Thanks for the replies fellas. I borrowed a PSU from work, and will try and change it out on wednesday and see if it changes anything. I have not changed anything in the PC, so I'm almost certain it's failing hardware. If it still crashes with this new PSU, I can only assume it's the...

    PC crashes after exiting specific game

    So, it took a while to test it because the crashes happen randomly, but I've now tried ports 2, 3 and 4 in my motherboard, with a single stick of 8GB RAM. I tried with both my sticks (One after the other), and it doesn't matter which stick or port, my PC still crashes. I don't have access to the...

    Customizable desk options?

    I looked at IKEA's website as well, and found the BEKANT model to look quite nice. Reasonable price and size. We'll have to go look in the store and hope that it's on display somewhere so we can touch it, and find out what surface we like best :)

    Customizable desk options?

    I'll probably end up going the custom route. Purely because the option I'm after might not exist here in Europe, and price. I hadn't considered asking around for someone to help me make it though, I'll keep that in mind. Thanks! :)

    Customizable desk options?

    Thanks for the replies. Yes, gaming is the wrong word to use, hence it was in quotation marks. Customizable is a better word. It's easy enough for me to find a desk that's height adjustable. However that's not quite the only thing I'm looking for.

    Need some guidance in streaming 4k movies

    Never too late to the party. I appreciate your comment. I'm glad to know there's a real chance the Shield will solve my issues. I'll definitely check out the thing with PLEX beforehand though, thanks for the suggestion.

    Customizable desk options?

    Hello, I've been hunting for a new desk, and I would honestly like something that's a bit minded towards "gaming", in the sense I'd like some in build cable management, somewhere to put my tower for instance, and/or other gimmicks. I stumpled upon the EvoDesk. Now while expensive, it's...

    Need some guidance in streaming 4k movies

    Thanks all for your replies. I've been out of commision for a couple of weeks so I haven't really been able to keep up with a lot of things. Yeah, I came to the same conclussion about transcoding being the problem. Which is why I've been looking into getting some sort of streaming box. With...

    Need some guidance in streaming 4k movies

    Thanks for the input! Unfortunately, I only have standard harddrives in my NAS. I have 2x6TB drives plus 1x3TB. I'd have to sell my soul to be able to afford that kind of space as SSD's.

    Need some guidance in streaming 4k movies

    Okay, so I tried plugging in the ethernet cable directly to the TV. For some reason, PLEX still buffers, although much much less then before. It's still unwatchable, but it's better. I tried watching 10-20 minutes of a movie directly from the NAS, I saw it buffering for a few seconds once during...

    Need some guidance in streaming 4k movies

    I'm a big fan of simplicity myself. I work with computer repairs, but I'm by no means a tech guy when it comes to networks, bitrate, formats and what have you. I will look into the Nvidia shield thing if everything else fails. Not knowing what it is, is it something like the Steamlink I have...

    Need some guidance in streaming 4k movies

    Thanks for your reply! I have a QNAP TS-451A, and the PLEX server app is installed and running on it. I found a list somewhere at some point when I was Googling all this, and it stated quite clearly that this NAS can't transcode 4k movies. Again, due to lacking knowledge I wondered if, as you...

    Need some guidance in streaming 4k movies

    First off, I'm not sure this is in the forum, or if it belongs in "General Software", please feel free to move it if so, and apologies in advance. I recently bought a couple of harddrives for my NAS, after a very long time not really having any space to store movies or other files on. Thinking...

    PC crashes after exiting specific game

    I tried changing it. My PC had problems starting up, and when it did I got an error message saying the overclocking settings has failed. I tried twice with the same result. For now, I've left it on "Auto" which is something like 328 or something like that. My next step will be to try and change...

    PC crashes after exiting specific game

    I honestly don't know if it's a QVL list, but I found this one. I clicked on "Memory by Skylake", since my CPU is a Skylake. My apologies if you asked for this earlier, I missed it if that's the case. Thanks for the explenation! So those numbers are pulled from some predetermined XMP profiles...

    PC crashes after exiting specific game

    Thanks for the suggestion. How come you assume those would be the most stable settings? And why 1.35v? I don't know if there's a simple answer to that question.

    PC crashes after exiting specific game

    I don't know if any of this info will be helpful to you, and I apologize for it being a bit of a long post due to images: The first 2 pictures shows my settings (After I changed them to what you see in the last picture). The 3rd picture shows something I'm not quite sure will be usable to me...

    PC crashes after exiting specific game

    Thanks, I'll try. Would it make sense to try and switch the RAM to other ports first? Right now they're in slot 2 & 4, but I could switch them to slot 1 & 3. I didn't try the EXACT numbers. Problem is I don't see any timings on MSI's website. I see this: The part number I searched for, is...

    PC crashes after exiting specific game

    Okay, my PC is still crashing. Here's what I've done so far. I saw in my BIOS setup that everything was set to Auto. I changed some of the settings. First I tried these settings: 2400MHz (Up from Auto 2133, to see if it was just acting weird because it wasn't running at maximum). 1.25V (Up from...

    PC crashes after exiting specific game

    Thanks for your replies! I don't mind learning my way through it, I always like gaining new knowledge. Thanks for the suggestion of cpu-z, I was wanting something to monitor it. I did have some questions before I start fiddling though, which I hope maybe you can clarify. The information I'm...

    PC crashes after exiting specific game

    Memory problems was exactly was I thought was the problem as well. In any case, what you said seemed very technical to me, and I don't really have any knowledge about RAM at all. I found a compatibility list of what they had tested their motherboard with, and I searched the list for my RAM (I...

    PC crashes after exiting specific game

    It's the same as everything else in the PC, just over 3 years old, so it should really still be fine. I'll try the clean install, see if it helps any, thanks! Edit: In all honesty, I've been considering trying out Linux for a while now, maybe this is the time to do it if the video driver...

    PC crashes after exiting specific game

    Hello! I have a problem with my PC freezing and crashing 5-10 seconds after I quit Grim Dawn. It doesn't happen every time, and it's not purely Grim Dawn. I can't remember right now which games, but I've had this issue with maybe 1-2 other games as well. Phantom Doctrine maybe, but I'm not...

    New mail server or Outlook?

    We use office 2016/365. I read a bit about the distribution list, it sounds like it could be an option. Would it be able to show everyone in such a group if 1 person has answered an email? It works like this: We have a general email address where people can contact our firm. We have a guy...

    New mail server or Outlook?

Our requirement is mainly that if person A opens an email and answers it, then person B on another PC can see that the email in question has been answered, possibly even...

    Need insight on wireless speakers

    Hello! So I've had my speakers for the good part of 15 years I'm thinking. It's a 5.1 system, but I've always only used it as 2.1 due to not really having the best place for a 5.1 setup. Wires running across the floor isn't really amazing. I'm moving soon, so my plan is to get a better gaming...
