I can't see the image (firewalls suck, man) but in a pinch good double-sided tape can generally be used to hold down hard drives.

Yeah the H60s will mount fine. you can see on their page that they are compatible with LGA 2011. However, if there is some unforseen problem, zip ties work too ;)

i mean if your desoldering skills are excellent and you have the ability to resolder in a new bga chip then you would probably replace the cpu

not really- a google search is all it takes.

Here's a great option from MechanicalKeyboards themselves

(the switches themselves are not RGB, due to the fact that cherry does not make RGB greens, but the lighing around the outside is RGB and looks great)

I would NOT get blues due to their light actuation force which could lead to even more missed keypresses, but would get Cherry greens due to their heavier actuation force and tactile feedback similar to blues.

no, I wouldnt do that. What's more likely is that there would be a screw stuck behind the mobo tray or somewhere similar causing a short.

The bent CPU pin may not be perfectly fixed still. Also, if you're sure it is, check that the RAM is properly seated (take it out and put it back in). Apart from that, just check for potential short circuits anywhere.

buy a new one for sure. It's TWO DOLLARS. you'd probably spend more on the solder you'd use trying to fix it.

You need fast internet to be able to do this effectively. If you don't have your mac on ethernet, then it's likely not going to be fast enough. Even if it is, many people do not have internet fast enough to use it.

  • 26 months ago
  • 1 point

League (of legends, not rocket) does often have a thing which caps at 60fps in windows 10. This might be fixed eventually. Also, 50fps in PUBG is not unusual from what I've seen. It's a pretty detailed game, a lot of shadows, etc. , and puts a high load on a lot of systems (for an easier to run version if you want higher FPS, try fortnite [not sponsored])

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Really high temps"

As long as it's not thermal throttling, I would say it's not actually a problem, especially if your fan curve is set to a "Silent" or a low rpm mode.

Also- Stress tests model a higher stress than even high level games do, and temps there are not representative of in-game temps.

Hate to correct you but that's not a cherry mx keyboard. It's advertised as cherry mx style and says that it uses gateron/outemu switches

I believe that that case actually comes with a fan hub on the back, and even if it doesn't you could pick one up for a few dollars. You could use a y-splitter but i believe that doesn't allow the fans to operate separately.

listen to where the source of the sound is. If its coming from the motherboards, probably somewhere near the cpu socket, its the motherboard.
