    Suggest me a new mouse.

    I just de-soldered the original Chinese 50M click Omron switches in my Corsair M65 elite and replaced them with some Omron switches made in Japan. So far so good! The double click issue is completely gone so far. Plus the actuation of the "click" is crisper and requires slightly more...

    Suggest me a new mouse.

    I’ve gone through 3 Corsair M65 Pros, and now have a 5 month old M65 Elite doing the same thing (registering double clicks on a single click); all within the last 4 years. The only reason I keep going back to them is because I like the button layout. I used Razer mice prior to the Corsair M65...

    Strange display issue since building new PC

    Excellent call Zepher! It was an application I use that was causing the blackout issue. Happened to be a mouse cursor app I use for games like D3 called YoloMouse.

    Strange display issue since building new PC

    Alrighty, cables have been swapped. Now I play the waiting game... Thanks for the assistance thus far. Trying to keep the little bit of sanity I have left in check.

    Strange display issue since building new PC

    I tried swapping at the GPU a while back, but I'll give it a try on the monitor side like you suggested. The weird java app issue doesn't matter which screen it's on, it does the same thing...

    Strange display issue since building new PC

    Not really sure where I should start this thread, so starting it here... I recently built a new PC a hair over 1 month ago.

    Tripp-Lite Smart1500lcdt Standby Power

    Not that I’m aware of... reason being is even though the UPS is “off”, the onboard charger continues to float the batteries.

    What mode for this wifi setup ? and what device...

    You can use two routers that support DDWRT and set up a wireless bridge between them as one option.. And yes, do yourself a favor and get rid of that wireless G router.

    Super slow SMB and slow NFS but iperf is ok

    You don't have a MTU mismatch somewhere in the middle do you? Something like sending 9216 byte MTU and in the middle of your network somewhere, it's set to 9000, and the receiving end is 9216...

    Super slow SMB and slow NFS but iperf is ok

    Set your window in iperf to something larger. Guessing you're using the stock window size which I believe is 64k. Add option: -w 256000 to see if that shows any different throughput amount. You can also add some parallel streams: -P 5 would allow for 5 simultaneous streams. With -P 5, you...

    Super slow SMB and slow NFS but iperf is ok

    Are you using jumbo frames? If so, try using 1500 byte frames to see if that resolves anything. I had a weird issue on my NAS where 9000 byte frames were severely throttling my network throughout, even though all devices were set to jumbo frames and supported 9k frames...

    Diablo 3 Discussion Thread

    I've been debating on playing this season or not. Played just enough last season to finish a good chunk of the journey and then stopped. Getting burned out on D3... Granted, I wouldn't mind seeing if I can go past GR105 solo. Did that a couple seasons back...

    Diablo 3 Discussion Thread

    Arachyrs I found to be pretty easy to solo. Helltooth was much easier to have someone in there with you that doesn't do anything at all until you've completed the first 2 objectives. Then they go around and mop things up with you in another direction to clear all mobs before the timer ends. If...

    If anyone needs a power level or demon hunter gear on softcore this season, let me know. I'm usually on after 6pm MST for a while and wouldn't mind helping someone out. I'm to the point now where I have a ridiculous amount of forgotten souls due to nothing being upgrades anymore unless it's...

    Made a little more progress last night. Hit top 46 on softcore season demon hunter. Did a 103 in 13:50. What sucks is that I only had a speed and channeling pylon... I can't stand fishing for the perfect GR, and it seems ever time I do something over GR100, I get either crap for elites and...

    Did a solo GR100 in a little over 11 and a half minutes yesterday afternoon. Guess it's time to start pushing 101+... I'm playing on softcore this season. On T13, you can work around that second impale issue if you use: Companion: Bat Vengeance: Seethe Cube armor slot: Visage of Gunes...

    I decided to jump back in a play. Been playing DH this season again and am pushing some solid DPS playing shadow/impale... So far, I've completed a GR99 successfully with enough time to spare where I feel I should be able to push a 100 without too many issues.

    i5-6600K issue?

    I've been building PCs since the late 90's, and this is the first bad CPU I've had. I can't recall the amount of bad motherboards, RAM and hard drives I've had in that time frame though...

    i5-6600K issue?

    I figured I'd throw a quick update in... The CPU was bad. Going to RMA it and he's going to build a second computer now with the rma'd CPU and the new motherboard. Thanks for the extra ideas.

    i5-6600K issue?

    All looked good physically on the CPU. Called my friend up and he wanted me to just order a new CPU regardless. Guess I'll find out on Wednesday if it was that or not...

    i5-6600K issue?

    Definitely not a temp issue I'd imagine as well. When the PC does get into CMOS, the pump shows a working RPM, the fans are spinning on the radiator, and the temps according to CMOS before it locks up are around 23C.

    i5-6600K issue?

    A friend had me build a PC for him over a year ago and recently asked me to look at it because it won't boot up. I found that the computer will hard lock even in CMOS assuming it will even make it that far. Sometimes when turning the PC on, the lights on the motherboard will light up but and...

    Yes, however that was for season 6. Season 7 still will utilize the same stash tab at the top assuming you completed the S6 journey far enough to unlock the new tab. If you have completed the S6 journey to unlock the tab and complete the S7 journey far enough, you'll unlock another stash tab...

    Internet Issues

    Another place you'll want to run a ping on besides your routers IP and Google's DNS is your public IP gateway. That is the first hop on your ISP's network your connection will hit after it leaves your routers WAN port facing the ISP. See if you get packet loss to that at the same time you lose...
