Yeah that too.  I looked into it a little more, the Pro seems like the more ideal one.  It's smaller and more subtle/normal looking, has a higher 1080p resolution and 5GHz Wifi compatible, and it can only be hardwired, which seems like the best way to use it in the first place if you're replacing another doorbell.  Only $50 more too

I have a .mkv video that plays but has no audio. I downloaded the CCCP codecs and it didn't help. What do I do?

You can probably get a nice discount on a Galaxy Note 8 next year. Their combustible phones apparently wiped out 30% of their profits next quarter.

I ordered a bunch of parts for a new computer I'm building. Only thing I'm unhappy with is the monitor I had to buy. I need 144hz and wanted the BenQ 24', but it was out of stock everywhere so I had to settle for the Asus competitor. Same specs, and surprisingly the Asus actually seems to have better reviews. Was 50$ cheaper, too. Oh well.

My last Asus survived over a half a decade of grueling use. It's in storage pending repairs, and I don't expect much difficulty in swapping capacitors. I have high expectations for the 27" one adorning my desk now. No warbles, weird glows, or dead pixels. Not an IPS, but still way more color accurate than other "gaming" panels I've used.
tazz.

My mobo with an i7 930 finally died this week after 7 years.

Built an i5 7600K build to replace it with.
everything i write is a ramble and should not be taken seriously.... seriously.

In case you guys are interested, this is what I went with:

- Intel Core i7-7700 3.6GHz Quad-Core Processor
- MSI Z170-A PRO ATX LGA1151 Motherboard
- Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2133 Memory
- Kingston HyperX Fury 240GB 2.5" Solid State Drive
- EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 8GB SC GAMING ACX 3.0 Black Edition Video Card
- Cooler Master Storm Enforcer ATX Mid Tower Case
- EVGA 500W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply
- Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler

I won't be overclocking, so the 'K' model of the CPU wasn't necessary. Only part I think I should have not gone cheap on is the CPU cooler. I'll see what the temps are and reassess.

i hear EVGA PSU's are not that good thesedays so you might want to future proof that.

otherwise looks good. very similar to what i've been looking at in an idle moment.

I did have a friend mention I might want to beef up the PSU. The nice thing about moving away from a pre-built in a very tight case or a laptop (like I have now) is that I can swap out parts as needed. If the PSU shows signs of potentially failing or just isn't cutting it on the daily, I'll swap it out immediately. Same goes for the CPU cooler.

I forgot to mention that I took a huge risk on the keyboard and went with a non-standard mechanical.

It's got something they're calling "Mecha-Membrane" keys to get the better of both worlds to give a soft touch and a tactile click at the same time.

A buddy ordered one and says it's great. My father is purchasing it for me as a birthday gift so I figured 'fuck it, let's go for broke'. In the worst case i'll drag my ass to a store and buy a proper mechanical.

I love how some people who complain about how the rainbow was "hijacked" by gays just can't get over the association themselves.

Pocshy's PSU should be fine with just the components listed. Could probably even get away with a 400W.

When did I say anything about it being hijacked?

uuuuum PSUs don't really 'show signs of failing'. they don't cough and splutter. a PSU failure happens once, it happens suddenly, and it takes out all of your shit. if you're lucky you'll get a high-pitched whine coming from one of the high-voltage rails for a while. but the last time my PSU destroyed a system, it was a case of pressing the power button and then discovering it had shorted the entire system.

and sorry, but you fucked up on that keyboard. razer make horrible peripherals, such junk. and why would you want something with dumb lights like that? what are you, a 13-year-old gam0r dude? 'mechs-membrane' also sounds shit. mechanical already caters to soft touch and tactile click: look into cherry mx browns. mechanical keyboards really are not 'tough' to type on. if you wanted a really nice hybrid, i'd recommend a topre keyboard from japan. they are amazing. again, i cannot emphasise enough: that razer thing is a piece of shit. better to take the $20–30 of the money that razer spent on fucking gay pride lights and put it towards a keyboard that focuses on shit that matters.

take it from someone who takes typing very seriously and is sad enough to care about things like keyboards. you fucked up on that choice. don't be duped by the 'mecha-membrane' nonsense. that's their way of saying "we cut costs on the production and gave it a trademark name so you still overpay for it".

was referring more to its bronze-rating and the fact its made by EVGA, a company whose PSUs are notorious for failure and issues, rather than its capacity.

would rather get a gold-rated modular PSU if i were going to spend that amount of moolah on a system. i've had a PSU brick an entire system once before – you really feel like an idiot for not spending that extra $50 when a power spike destroys a mobo and CPU.

Do you know what bronze and gold even mean? It is an efficiency rating. EVGA has been pretty solid for years. When was the last time you bought one? I know Corsair is still better, but EVGA isn't in the shits at all.

And I knew the keyboard is potentially not going to suit my preferences. I wanted to give it a try at the price point. I even said I would buy a mechanical if needed.

Thanks though?

yeah, poindexter, but less efficient PSUs thus waste more energy as heat dissipation and wear out faster / are less reliable.

not to mention that the rating certificates normally scale with price-quality points in PSU builds. better components all round.

if you're building a gaming pc that is going to be drawing high-loads a lot of the time, why would you want an inefficient PSU?

i don't understand this philosophy of 'try something half-shit so i can buy the real shit in 3 months time'. where's that razer keyboard going to end up, looking pretty on a landfill? get a decent mech keyboard. it's a good investment just like a good monitor is, and will probably outlast your current build. just on a taste level, why do you want a keyboard crammed with disco lights? u some sort of fag?

I've never heard anybody make the argument that the lower efficiency PSUs are more likely to fail. Nobody. All of my friends have said that EVGA is fine, so I'm not sure where this comes from. Get burned once 7 years ago? Odd.

And the "philosophy" of 'try something half-shit' is called taking a risk on something cheaper but potentially just as likable. Strange that you can go from arguing about the prevalence of cocaine use and its relative low-risk of addition to saying I am an idiot for trying out something that might be just fine. Orders of magnitude less risky, I'd say. But I'm the fool.

Nice.

how are you taking it so personally that you just bought a shit keyboard. spend thirty dollars more and don't get the children's toy.

also that cocaine comparison is tortuous and just doesn't work at all.

oh and about the evga stuff, there's two issues that we're conflating. with regards to the rating stuff, yes it's an efficiency certificate, but a lower-rated PSU will generate more heat which will wear out the capacitors faster, heat up the ambient temp of your case, and normally the noise levels of the case fans, too. not to mention the fact that, depending on your energy costs and what sort of loads you will run it at, you could probably pay for the difference between the bronze->gold PSU taken over a year or two of inefficient energy consumption in your power bill.

the thing about EVGA is that, at least when i was into building PCs, their PSUs came near the bottom of the charts for voltage regulation, ripple, etc. again, you may say i'm being salty because i had a PSU fail on an old computer (not an EVGA PSU, fyi), but my point is that it's the sort of thing that only ever has to fail once and then all of your beautiful build is bricked. why go for the most inefficient and arguably one of the poorest constructed options when the difference is ultimately $40 bucks? again, don't give me some hackneyed analogies about cocaine use. i only buy that pure fish scale, hombre.
