Currently have a gen 1 Google mesh wifi, and really do love it. It provides good coverage for my 3600 sq foot house (2 floors).
But my kids are getting to that age where we will begin having "the talk' and I want to get ahead of any curious google searches. Any recommendations? Or is there some...
Moving into a new office in 2 weeks (actually getting the office they promised me 6 months ago when I started), and I'm looking for a nice bookshelf speaker system that can:
- Have an Aux input form my computer
- Have bluetoooth
- Have a remote control
- Have reasonable sound at low volume
That sucks. This was simply the easiest way to extract BTC from NiceHash and exchange to some other currency.
Not sure who to blame though. NH hasn't always been a great industry member, and they are laying ALL the blame on...
Need some help finding a monitor for my father.
He wants a larger screen for photo editing. 32" or larger, with reasonably good color reproduction. He's a pretty good photographer with decent hardware (Sony A77 II). However, he doesn't want to spend more than around $500-$600.
He IS an...
My 660ti in my HTPC is acting wonky and is on it's way out via obselescence anyway.
Being a lame 1080p gamer, I WAS looKing at the RTX2060 (to replace a GTX 970 in my main rig, to be sent to the HTPC), but the [H] review and craptastic RTing performance gave me some pause.
Then these leaks...
Upgrading from my GTX 970 to (likely) an RTX 2060. However, I am torn between the standard size cards and the mid size ones. For example:
I have an Intel 7600k on an Asus Strix Z270i GAMING and THIS ram.
The last time I overclocked was my old 2500k, which was pretty much set it and forget it, and a solid OC was attainable with essentially no effort. I have not kept up with the meaning of all the settings in the Z270 chipset bios...
I thought it was just my old phone, but after upgrading, the issues persist. And hard to describe.
Say I'm typing along and I insert a typo. Example:
"I love to visir this site."
On other sites, I can tap the misspelled word, and get suggestions. Like this:
However, when I tap the correct...
I have a new house. TV mounted over the fireplace (wife mandated). I have a mount that pulls the TV out and down over the fireplace so it's not so high. BUT, what do I do about my center channel? I have a Polk CS10.
Other speakers are:
R/L: Boston Acoustics CR-8
Rear: Polk bookshelves
Just closed on the new house today, and I got to really explore. The good news is that the house is pre-wired for ethernet (huzzah!). The ethernet (and coax) all come into this neat little patch panel in the laundry room:
That's a netgear 8 port switch there at the bottom, which appears to...
I just picked up a SteelSeries Stratus XL gamepad in Windows 10, but having a devil of a time. In theory, you are supposed to:
Put batteries in
install Steelseries Engine in Windows
Power on controller
Connect to bluetooth
May have to power off the device and power it back on.
I'm on my second Nighthawk x6, and may need a third unless someone can convince me it's not the hardware:
Wired connections work, and the wireless connections show as working, but they barely get any throughput any more. Some devices show a wireless connection, but no internet.
So, when you are reading a post containing a quoted previous post, there is a little up arrow that will send you to the quoted post.
On my phone, desktop and laptop (all Chrome, newest version) clicking does nothing.
It looks like I am no longer going to be able to do a home-brew local networked backup solution on a PC-PC basis after the death of CrashPlan. Simple NAS systems like a simple networked drive is not going to work because of the volume of data I'm moving and a desire for a little more power.
Pretty simple, I have been using an og 150gb WD Velociraptor (https://m.newegg.com/products/N82E16822136011?nm_mc=KNC-GoogleKWLess&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleKWLess-_-DSA-_-CategoryPages-_-NA&gclid=CjwKCAjwk4vMBRAgEiwA4ftLs-LKiNOwOVeqpRbJJMzeq9uBaaRptoeQMYneq69204JKw5VtNWJ_SxoCkSEQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds)...
So I need a new case for my home server. It's a basic computer with a bunch of HDDs and software driving the duties under Win10 (Plex for media serving and CrashPlan for automated local backups).
What I need:
- not expensive
- room for 5 full size HDDs and 1 SSD
- don't care about visuals and...
Some forums and webpages are now including a little floating icon in one corner of the page that follows you down as you scroll. It's sole purpose is to take you back to the top of the page. For the [F]forums, at least, this would be nice.
ANyone else getting it? Launched tonight, but a rolling launch, so keep your eyes out for it.

My HTPC has a Gigabyte H87N-WIFI motherboard, Windows 10, 8gb ram and running off an SSD with the onboard AC wireles adapter, and something is happening with the networking.
EVERY time I boot up, it's fine, but after about 5 minutes, the internet connection no longer functions. When I hit the...
So, you have a single scene to show in two slightly different ways in the headset to give a stereoscopic effect.
Does the scene have to be rendered twice? Or, is it rendered once, and the game inserts two "cameras," one for each image?
Do different setting have to be applied more than once...
Quick request: There's no link to hardocp.com at the top anymore. [H]Forums are normally my [H]ome page, and then I head over to the main page for news and reviews.
Cold we get the link to Hardocp.com back?
Excellent! The link is back. Thanks!
Thanks, and congrats on what has been, so far, a...

I have a Win10 PC working as a Plex server and Crashplan backup location. It doesn't need internet access (other than periodic updates). Is there any easy way to keep that computer on the network but disable/toggle internet access?

So, in the cooler reviews done at [H], there are charts that cover dollar per degree comparisons. That is, a number that equals the number of degrees cooled better than stock coolers, divided by the cost of the cooler.
I think a dollar per fps would be a good follow up metric, and an easy...
For those of us with rewards points lying around, this is a solid deal.
Also, remember that Best Buy covers the...
