    Anyone have wireless bluetooth earbuds they like?

    There are some very reasonably priced bluetooth 5.0 earbuds on Amazon.ca for less than $100. These are the type that come with a charging case and they get around 15h of playback (claimed). I know we generally frown upon wireless headphones/headsets for the PC environment or very good audio...

    Corsair LL fans and iCue issues

    My new fans and the iCue software have been giving me issues. I'll set up my lighting scheme, all the fans are lit and as I want them. Then on a seemingly random boot sometime later one of the fans stays dark, usually the same fan. I initially thought I must have a bad fan. But sometimes...

    Android 10 rolling out to Pixel devices

    I haven't honestly been paying much attention to Android 10 (or Pixel 4 yet for that matter) but apparently it started rolling out to Pixel devices 3 September. Not on my Pixel 2 yet. Anyone have it? Seems like a lot of new features: Android 10 - Google site New gesture navigation, again...

    New EKWB pressure/leak tester

    There are other options out there but EKWB finally has one. Looks like a nice tool to have if you change or build loops a lot... you know who you are... :p https://amp.tweaktown.com/?url=https://www.tweaktown.com/news/66867/ek-releases-leak-tester-keeps-hardware-dry/index.html

    Rebel Galaxy Outlaw - Releasing 13 Aug 2019

    I don't think we have a thread on this Rebel Galaxy Outlaw. Searched, didn't find one. I have been watching the development bits and pieces of Rebel Galaxy Outlaw and have been very interested in it. Looks like a good bit of single player space sim fun without a focus on grind (so they say). I...

    Good Canadian-based Qt training?

    Google provided me a few options that I've reached out to, but wondered, have any of you taken what you would consider good formal training for Qt programming/development from a Canadian provider or at least offered at a Canadian location? Bit of a shot-in-the-dark here but you folks have had...

    Just wondering if someone might have a Chromecast Audio they'd like to sell. Some on ebay but they are from the UK or US and seem a bit pricey.

    First "photograph" of a black hole released

    This is neat stuff. The linked CBC article doesn't really go into enough detail, for example what exactly was "photographed", but I'm sure there are more detailed articles out there. CBC.ca article link Only thing I noticed is there isn't any sign of Maximilian anywhere in the photo! :biggrin:

    Windows 10 update patch KB4482887 negatively impacts gaming

    I usually depend on Mr. Friendly to handle these posts, but it's the weekend so I'm helping :biggrin: Seriously...?? I am really starting to get to the point of turning off Windows 10 updates, at least non-security ones anyway. Another issue with performance and Windows 10 updates. The fact...

    8700K - Fluctuating core speeds at idle when OC'ed?

    This question is part overclocking, part troubleshooting, but I thought a little more the latter so asking it here. I've been playing around with the new 8700K, and allowed ASUS AI Suite 3 to do an automatic overclock. Took it to 4.9 GHz without any tweaking by me. But I do need to check what...

    Completed Meshify C, 8700K - my journey to a custom loop

    I completed the new build this weekend... Did not go as planned and I haven't even made it to the custom loop part yet! :haha: Going to use this thread to document the process of upgrading from my 4790K parts with the cooling I was using, through to the custom loop build in the end... I hope...

    Meshify C custom loop considerations

    So, an initially straightforward question here about cleaning out my AIO has resulted in me dreaming about creating my first custom loop... again :whistle: I'd really like to use a Meshify C for the build. I realize it is tight, but I like the case and I would like to go to a smaller ATX case...

    Cleaning out and flushing a Swiftech AIO - this right?

    I am coming up on the 3 year mark for my Swiftech AIO. The docs recommend flushing, cleaning, and replacing the fluid at this point. Having never done that before, just wondering if there is anything specific I should do. Is it as simple as - dust out the rad; - take the main pieces apart...

    Sanity check: Switch from 34" 1440p ultrawide to 32" 4K?

    So, this is purely a post looking for opinions. I have an Acer Predator X34. Most days I love it. But every once in a while I feel like perhaps the Acer Predator XB321HK, 32" 4K display would have been the better choice. Why? I would keep G-Sync, but give up 100Hz for 60Hz. I'm not a...

    Trouble port forwarding in Bell Home Hub 3000?

    I have been trying to set up port forwarding for a mumble/murmur server and I can't seem to get it to work on the subject modem router. I have tried with and without a DDNS and I have tried forwarding to the Linux box where I want it to live but also to my Win10 PC just as a test. Rules appear...

    Intel 9000 series reveal: initial comments?

    I'm sure there's a HWC review already in the works for when NDA is lifted, a video is already up I believe on YouTube, but I just wondered what folks were thinking now that the chips have officially been revealed. I don't think there are any surprises given the leaks we have already discussed...

    Kingdom Come Deliverance

    Well, we don't appear to have a thread for this one based on a search, so I'll start one! Picked it up finally on the current sale. Only played about an hour so far and some of that was faffing around with graphics settings to get it running at a reasonable fps because wowy this game is...
