    Philips SHP9500 Headphones (Ships) @ Amazon 59.99

    I've got these headphones. They are comfortable, never an issue wearing them for hours. Don't have really anything to compare them to besides some cheap ass earbuds I used to wear, but they sound pretty good to me! Picked up another set just to have as backups lol.

    Internet speed much slower through router

    No QoS. Never ever used it on his old router, nor my router. His new router is brand new off the shelf. All three have exact same problem. I have not directly checked that, however I cannot imagine that's the issue. If I run speed test w/ the router and get the slow speeds, then...

    Internet speed much slower through router

    My next suggestion will be a re install of windows. All up to my father though, he might just say fuck it and leave it alone. I hope he lets me do it because it is going to bother the hell out of me if I don't fix it.

    Internet speed much slower through router

    Yep, already did that. Post #11. My pc with either his modem/routers or mine work just fine. Whatever is wrong IMO lies within HIS pc.

    Internet speed much slower through router

    I guess I spoke too soon. Decided to do the driver updates today. I went over there, ran dell update (yes they have a dell). That found a bios update, realtek ethernet adapter update, and 2 others. After those were installed and pc rebooted, I ran speedtest..... 19/6 Wired and wireless...

    Internet speed much slower through router

    I actually think that is the modem I was looking at to replace their current 6141, and while I personally have an Asus router and it has been great for me. If they do decide to go with the separate modem and router, they'll likely just keep the nighthawk router they already bought. I'll keep...

    Internet speed much slower through router

    So, the situation magically fixed itself. Sort of... I went back over there today and started getting ip addresses, modem signal strength numbers, etc. Did that for a while with their modem and both of their routers. Then I decided to run a speed test. 75 down 6 up on WiFi or wired through...

    Internet speed much slower through router

    I didn't really have time to do much with the internet todayay other than hook up their television. One thing that I did notice real quick is that if I go modem--->PC, and ask google my ip, I get an ipv6 address, when I use the router and ask google, I get ipv4 address. I am hopefully going to...

    Internet speed much slower through router

    0 splitters at the moment. Cable comes off the tap outside, through a hole in the side of the house and directly to the cable modem. However, tomorrow or the next day, I will be hooking up their comcast tv boxes for a trial period to see if they would like to switch from directv. At this time...

    Internet speed much slower through router

    I bought their modem and my modem at the same time, which was about 3 years ago. Before that we were both renting from comcast. At home I get 230 down 12 up, that is wired from modem to router to pc. I don't use wireless on my pc so I don't know. My cell phone gets 50 down, 12 up on 2.4ghz...

    Internet speed much slower through router

    Drivers have NOT been updated, tried multiple cables (including ones from the current setup at my house getting 240down 12 up), currently cable comes right from the tap on the outside of the house, into the house, directly into the modem. The modem, router, and pc are all within 5 feet of each...

    Internet speed much slower through router

    I'm trying to troubleshoot a problem at my parents house with their internet speeds. If I hook the cable modem directly to the pc, they get 100Mbps down and 6 or 11 up (I can't remember honestly). If I introduce a router into the mix, their speeds drop to 30Mbps down and 6 up. This is using...

    Pc crashing/re-booting, no blue screen.

    Thanks man! My best guess is that it was an intermittent issue with my old GPU. I did windows/driver/bios updates, XMP on/off and the crash persisted. Literally the ONLY other thing I did, and I don't see how it could have any bearing on my problem, was delete my logitech mouse software. I...

    Well, I'm a little scared to even bring it up but I think It's fixed. No crashes or other issues to report, XMP has been back on since Saturday as well.

    Pc crashing/re-booting, no blue screen.

    So I haven't had any issues since my last posting about it on the 5th, which I find weird. However my RMA arrived from EVGA (they sent me a 2070 which is nice) and I installed that last night. I'm going to carry on as normal for a week with this thing, then I'll put the ram back up to 3200 and...

    Pc crashing/re-booting, no blue screen.

    GPU is being RMA'd by EVGA. I'll get that swapped out and see if it fixes anything. If I'm still having the issues, then I'll move on to OCCT test and swapping in a different cable.

    Pc crashing/re-booting, no blue screen.

    So tonight, I had two more weird things happen. First, I was on youtube and twitch, my screen went black for a couple seconds, then came back and both areas where video would be playing were green. They fixed themselves with a reload of the page. Next, I was playing pubg and alt--tabbed to...

    Pc crashing/re-booting, no blue screen.

    Yea, that's next on the list after I see how the rma on gpu goes. Not sure what evga is gonna say if I try to rma the power supply after the gpu, but I'll give it a whirl if the gpu doesn't fix it.

    Pc crashing/re-booting, no blue screen.

    Evga g3 750 watt, bought new when I built the system (last September) I put in a support ticket w/ evga for my video card to see if I can RMA it. The only clue I've gotten is the damn VGA light being lit on my mobo sometimes when the whole thing crashes/re-boots. But it's been suggested that...

    Pc crashing/re-booting, no blue screen.

    ill probably just stick to standard speed. Is there anyway that the ram itself could still be the issue, or is it more likely that The cpu memory controller or motherboard is to blame?

    Pc crashing/re-booting, no blue screen.

    Crashed again just a minute ago. Guess all I can do is leave XMP off. Worried that since the ram passed memtest, that the memory controller on the cpu is weak/dying :(

    Pc crashing/re-booting, no blue screen.

    Put ram back on XMP this morning. Something to note, the new bios does seem to operate a little bit different from the bios I was running before. When I first build this system, I couldn't use XMP. Instead I had to enter the ram voltage/timing manually because enabling XMP made the system do...

    Haven't gotten a crash since the bios update on Friday. Hoping that has fixed it! Going to give it a few more days and take the ram back up to 3200. Thank everyone for the suggestions and help!

    Pc crashing/re-booting, no blue screen.

    Roger! Got the bios updated. On Asus 2102 now. Have not reverted to an earlier nvidia driver yet. Going to see if this crashes. When/if it does, I'll roll back the nvidia driver. Only updated bios a handful of times before, damn thats a scary process! Used the bios flashback port on the...

    Pc crashing/re-booting, no blue screen.

    Shortly after I read pendragon1 latest reply, I downloaded latest bios and dug out a flash drive. I formatted the drive and the second it finished, the system crashed lol. Exact same thing as the first crash I had last week except there was no buzzzzzz/audio stutter because I was not watching...

    Pc crashing/re-booting, no blue screen.

    I get it man, it is funny to me that I see soooooooo many times people get suggested to re-install windows to try and fix things, I remember that I had my last pc since like 2011 or 2012 up until I built this one last year, and I never once re-installed windows to fix something. Except when my...

    Pc crashing/re-booting, no blue screen.

    Just got home and checked pc. Memtest completed with 0 errors. Also when it hung on memtest earlier today, there were no errors at that time. The whole thing was just frozen. I am using a evga gtx 1070 ftw. I had been using the same driver for quite some time up until last friday when I had...

    Pc crashing/re-booting, no blue screen.

    Yea, maybe. Curious to see if memtest is still running now after I restarted it and left for work. I can put ram back to stock and see what happens. Gonna be a bit bummed if the sticks are going bad since I paid for the 3200 MHz kit. if that is the issue, wonder if the sticks are covered at...

    Pc crashing/re-booting, no blue screen.

    Don't think it is overheating. P95 newest version that I ran this morning small fft (avx on) got up to 75* large fft ran overnight stayed below 70* iirc. Every time I've checked temps while gaming I am in mid 60's. Gpu gets to mid/high 60's while benching/gaming. No Overclocks at all. Ram...

    Pc crashing/re-booting, no blue screen.

    Power supply is EVGA supernova g3 750. Ran unigine heaven for about 35-40 minutes last night, no crashing, gpu temp got up to 66* (gets up to 68* gaming but I assume the added heat from the cpu being dumped into the case causes that) Ran prime95 newest version large FFT for 5 and a half hours...

    Just had another crash. Was gaming this time. No motherboard code, no windows message. Audio bzzzzzz, black screen pc restart. One of the guys I game w/ said it sounds like a bad gpu, because he had the same issues in the past... That is also what the asus tech said above regarding the...

    Yes there is a new bios update. Event viewer shows 1 critical error in the last 24 hours. Event id 41 kernal-power. General description tab for that says "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost...

    Pc crashing/re-booting, no blue screen.

    In the past 7 days, my pc has randomly crashed twice. Both times I was just watching a stream on twitch, the pc froze, audio gave a loud bzzzzzzzzzz and the screen went black. The first time, the screen stayed black, no audio from speakers, mouse and k/b lights dead, but motherboard showed...
