    Looking for Bluetooth Numpad with Standard Layout

    oh, I would love the top one except the extra home/del/ins keys. The second one has the BS where the - key is. Thanks for the input though, much appreciated! :)

    Looking for Bluetooth Numpad with Standard Layout

    I bought a TKL for gaming and love it. But when I work from home, I still very much want a numpad. So I've been looking for a numpad that is EXACTLY like someone chopped the numpad off a normal 100% keyboard like this: I basically want this but made into a separate keypad. Bluetooth is...

    All Sold

    As much as I like people doing nice things like giving free bumps, I also dislike when people post things like "it can run games at 1440@100fps just fine". What games? What settings? Without stating those things, it's a pretty useless statement. Your definition of "just fine" is very different...

    [Microsoft store] American Pool (Free till July 8)

    How is a billiards game that has in app purchases worth $85? I don't have much experience with the MS store, but this screams shady to me that all of a sudden it's "Free".

    Stadia exclusives to have features “not possible” on home hardware

    Anybody else think that Stadia is another project to teach their AI? That this was the idea all along and some marketing genius then said, "let's hide this as a gaming platform instead!"

    Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC has issues (duh)

    So you EXPECT a AAA game that is a year late to launch WITH issues? Oh man, what has this world come to?

    Ad block for phone on local network?

    Check out adguard I got a premium (lifetime) license when it was on sale so I can't be sure how well the free version functions, but I heard the free one is still pretty good.

    is 1080 decent for 1440P 144hz?

    I don't understand how any of you are answering his question without first asking the most important one. "What games are you planning on playing?"

    Do we still need spinning drives?

    I have a mobo that supports 3 NVMe's and they are all full. I love not having to deal with SATA and power cables. I have a Crystal 570x case and it looks clean as hell thanks to that. It does limit storage space though so I have to manage game installs. But this is pretty much how I keep...

    what are some top notch screen saver, such as 3D Aquarium for PC?

    This Is Probably the Movie Version of Sonic the Hedgehog

    My guess us they probably had an actor in a mocap suit and making a more true to video game version of Sonic did not map well to the suit.

    Is Core Performance Boost OS dependent? Server 2016 here with 2700x and it is locked for me

    Thanks for the reply. Someone else in another thread said that the 16GB modules are dual sided and that's tougher in general (not just on Ryzen boards), to get them run at faster rates.

    Motherboard wont stay turned off?

    Yup, my experience is the same, a short somewhere. Also, I don't know much about that mobo and CPU, but is that Pentium overclocked? Are the mobo settings at default? Also in my experience, pumped up voltages can keep a mobo from shutting down correctly.

    Is Core Performance Boost OS dependent? Server 2016 here with 2700x and it is locked for me

    Trust me, I've tried everything. I am 99% sure it is the usage of all 4 slots. For my sticks, I can get 2x8GB working fine at 32000 MHz, I just can't get 4x8GB . I've tried using all 4 sticks in all combinations in 2x8GB just in case one was bad, but they all worked. In my research, getting...

    Is Core Performance Boost OS dependent? Server 2016 here with 2700x and it is locked for me

    TL;DR - Core Performance Boost is disabled and I cannot get it enabled. Have tried changing all BIOS settings I can think of. Is it because I am running Server 2016? I've checked my BIOS settings over and over, I have ensured EVERYTHING is set correctly. I have a 2700x on Server 2016 since...

    CBS Offers "Star Trek: Discovery" Season 2 Premiere for Free on YouTube

    I found that you can enjoy a show or movie a lot more if you watch it without a super bullheaded nostalgic fanboy glasses on. That doesn't mean that you'll automatically start enjoying every new reboot or prequel ever made. But it at least gives you a chance to enjoy them more. But if you...

    Added two extra RAM sticks, frequencies go WAY down (XMP crashes)

    I had 2 sticks of G Skill F4-3200C14D-16GVK (3200MHZ CAS 14 2x8 GB) on a MSI Gaming Carbon Pro with a 2700x. If I used XMP I could not get them to run at 3200, only at 2933. Using the Ryzen DRAM Calculator I was finally able to get them to run at 3200. I needed more RAM since I started...

    Here Is the Samsung C32JG53 32" Curved Gaming Monitor

    I have been wondering recently if manufacturers are making large screens with low res at a really low price point in order to get a consumer hooked on a large screen size. So when the consumer realizes "OMG this looks like ass" they then spend more on a same size panel but higher res. Like a...

    Lan and Wifi at same time

    Basically what you are talking about is called bonding. A few conditions would have to exist for this type of bonding to be of any benefit. 1) Your PC would have to have a slower connection to your gateway than your Internet speed. i.e. You're paying for 500mbit/second internet (WAN) and for...

    Dealing with users who avoid screensaver/lock screen?

    We used to "Hoff" people who didn't lock their PCs. Not sure if it was this exact picture, but we used one similiar to it and put it as their background and lockscreen and move all of their desktop icons off screen.
