I would like to have either all matching colour cables, or a new side cover for the case, with no window. The G702 has a gaming theme to it. However, there is not much RGB in it currently. So my idea is to just either hide it all (no window side), or get 'proper' cables to make it look nice. LOL 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMikeW admin August 2020 We can help you find a power supply that's both an upgrade and has say black braided sleeves for color uniformity, it's a pretty common feature. You can also buy sleeving separately, but it's a nuisance sometimes to remove the connectors and get everything back together the way it was. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7K All Categories 1K The Blog 33 What's Trending 167 How to & Technical Guides 11 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 16 3D Printers 10 Maker 16 PC Build Guides 96 Reviews & Buying Guides 34 Build Showcase 17 Contests 39 Past Contests 1K The Community 1.8K General Discussion 108 New Members 127 Consumer Tech 42 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 78 Software 4 Audio/Visual 13 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 26 3D Printing 53 Retro Arcade/Gaming 86 All Other Tech 1.3K Store Information and Policy 51 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 113 Your Completed Builds 2.7K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 225 Graphics Cards 172 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 62 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 16 Monitors and Displays 30 Peripherals 10 All Other Parts 22 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

I don't see a price point in your post. The first upgrade I'd probably recommend is your RAM, 16GB is the base for heavy multitasking. Next would be your GPU and CPU. If you're able to use NVENC encoding to put the work on your GPU, I'd recommend upgrading your GPU first. You'll get better gaming performance out of this as well.

I also noticed in some games that there are key bindings to volume up and down (Beam,NG drive has volume up or down as reset for some reason) but I noticed that if I plug in a keyboard that I got with my old pc (it has a volume up and down button on it not brightness) that it works perfectly for volume up and down. Well, my main question is, is there a way to make my volume, and brightness buttons work? I think its windows 11 (that came pre installed on the computer). Is there a way to use my laptops built in keyboard for the volume, or will I have to use another keyboard or do it manually? I personally think its the software or my laptops defective. does anybody have any thoughts on how to fix it/ what the problem is? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Answers Ian admin November 30 Greetings. Which exact model of HP laptop is this for?

I have a total of (18) cat5e runs, but (7) will remain telephone land lines in case we ever sell the house. I am changing (4) of the existing R11 jacks to RJ45 jacks, adding (3) RJ45 that will need a 4/5-port switch to connect clusters of equipment (dish/TV/PS4, desktop/printer/dish/AP, etc.), have (4) future runs for TVs & a WiFi AP when I finish the basement, and may also add a couple more runs for future Ethernet jacks in strategic locations as the need arises. My ISP is being brought to the house via Ubiquiti Power Beam air fiber dish with cat5e to a wireless access point. I also have (14) RG6 runs throughout the house, with only (1) being used to bring the satellite signal to the main TV, then to (3) more WiFi receivers. I would like to know if someone at MC could help me choose the correct components to tie everything together. I will either install a small rack with patch panel, switch, and power supply on the wall next to my electrical panels, or mount a structured media panel and land all the coax, telephone, & data runs depending on the cost. I would like to conceal all the components and make for a clean finished product. I don't necessarily need or want the ability to configure any ports or switches. In fact, I would like it to be as plug & play as possible. Thanks in advance for your help. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSKyleH admin May 2020 edited May 2020 Hello Pat, Thank you for posting your request, I would certainly recommend using a patch panel for starters as this would keep all the cat5 runs together at a central point. One option would be a 24 port panel, https://www.microcenter.com/product/393919/shaxon-24-port-cat5e-rj45-110-patch-panel , which still gives you room to add even more as the need arises. We also have a variety of switches, and based on your description you would want unmanaged switches, these would be the best plug and play options, https://www.microcenter.com/search/search_results.aspx?N=4294966884+4294822108&Ntk=all&sortby=match&myStore=true. You will want at least 24 ports as your main switch, then you can get any number of smaller switches for the different clusters.  Another recommendation I can offer is sticking to the same company or brand, this is commonly referred to as an ecosystem, but since you already using a ubiquiti device, you can make all of your other switches and future APs ubiquiti as well and it will provide you a central management point. Here are some of the ubiquti specific switches we have to offer, https://www.microcenter.com/search/search_results.aspx?N=4294966884+4294816303&Ntk=all&sortby=match&myStore=true.  1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Pat_V ✭ May 2020 Hi TSKyleH, Thank you for taking the time to respond to my post. My understanding is that I will need a gateway or router for the incoming line prior to the first switch. Is this correct? Also, would you recommend a Ubiquiti Cloud Key? Lastly, does Micro Center sell racks? I will need a place to house all this stuff. Thanks again! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin May 2020 Yes, you'll want a router before the first switch, assuming that the modem you're using doesn't have one built in. If it does, a separate router would not be necessary.  The Cloud Key Device is useful because it allows you to run a local instance of the UniFi Controller software as well as remote access. It's not required, but could be useful.  After checking through our inventory, it appears we don't sell the racks themselves, unfortunately.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7K All Categories 1K The Blog 33 What's Trending 167 How to & Technical Guides 11 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 16 3D Printers 10 Maker 16 PC Build Guides 96 Reviews & Buying Guides 34 Build Showcase 17 Contests 39 Past Contests 1K The Community 1.7K General Discussion 106 New Members 127 Consumer Tech 42 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 78 Software 4 Audio/Visual 13 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 26 3D Printing 53 Retro Arcade/Gaming 86 All Other Tech 1.3K Store Information and Policy 51 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 113 Your Completed Builds 2.7K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 225 Graphics Cards 172 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 62 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 16 Monitors and Displays 30 Peripherals 10 All Other Parts 22 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

I know coming across a current gen GPU from Nvidia/AMD can be a bit problematic, but the extremely high pricing listed for AMD cards from Micro Center is concerning. I see some of these cards priced here, folks can pay similar prices (sometimes just under or just over) for scalped cards on ebay. When Nvidia equivalent GPUs are in stock, they tend to be 10-20% cheaper in cost, compared to AMD. Why would anyone want to drop $1000 or more for a 6700XT? The 3070Ti variants are selling for the same price as the 6700XT cards. Who would seriously want to spend this kind of money on an AMD card? When are the prices going to drop for the AMD cards to actually make them relevant in the option to purchase them? I've seen my local Micro Center store sitting on the same 6900XT cards and 6700XT cards for the past 2 weeks or more since I started paying attention. No one wants to drop that kind of money on them when Nvidia cards are going for so much less. Are you guys getting taken over the barrel on the pricing from AIB manufacturers when it comes to AMD cards? Or are you guys just trying to ride the scalper pricing train? I could have easily stopped into my local store and purchased an AMD card if they were priced better. I would have been okay with a $500-550 for a 6700XT, not the $1k they're going for. Instead I opted to pick up a RTX 3060 and it only cost me about $400 after taxes. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments CindyH ✭ July 21 edited July 21 I can't speak for AMD, but if you see prices for Nvidia cards higher than MSRP at M.C. you need to report that to the vendor of the cards. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook DreadPirateRoberts ✭ July 21 I've always known MC to be very competitive with pricing. Specifically beating out competitors in CPU and GPU pricing. I'm sure that if they are listing these parts at a certain price, it is due to cost or pricing requirements from partners. It doesn't make sense in short or long run for them to list these GPUs so much higher unless they are required to do so. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook GoatForHire Irvine, TX ✭ July 22 edited July 22 I highly doubt Micro Center sets the price just so they can have the cards sit on the shelf to look pretty One quick Google search for 6700 XT brings me to a Best Buy or other retailer page with these cards listed at the exact same price, or more, or maybe $10 less dependent on model and brand. I don't think Mr. Microcenter woke up one day to wave a magic wand and make the price higher, lol 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7K All Categories 1K The Blog 33 What's Trending 167 How to & Technical Guides 11 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 16 3D Printers 10 Maker 16 PC Build Guides 96 Reviews & Buying Guides 34 Build Showcase 17 Contests 39 Past Contests 1K The Community 1.8K General Discussion 108 New Members 127 Consumer Tech 42 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 78 Software 4 Audio/Visual 13 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 26 3D Printing 53 Retro Arcade/Gaming 86 All Other Tech 1.3K Store Information and Policy 51 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 113 Your Completed Builds 2.7K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 225 Graphics Cards 172 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 62 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 16 Monitors and Displays 30 Peripherals 10 All Other Parts 22 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

I'd like to play my games in HDR (when possible) but noticed that (at least out of the box) the screen looks grayish and washed out when set to HDR mode in Windows 10. I've tinkered with NVIDIA control settings and got it somewhat decent, but it is still not great. My current settings are :  Brightness: Brightness 50 % Contrast 87% Gamma  1.10 Digital Vibrance  70% Hue  0 degrees   I've read that Windows 10 HDR settings still don't work well and may want to consider going back to SDR. Can anyone give me tips to make the screen look the best it can be?   Thank you,   Jeroen 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTonyV admin July 2020 What refresh rate are you currently running on the monitor? If you've "overclocked" it through the on-screen menu up to 144Hz, apparently that prevents you from using HDR and G-sync on this display. Also, the on-screen menu has an HDR setting you can enable or disable, have you checked that? It should be under the picture menu.  1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Jeroen North Bergen, NJ ✭ July 2020 Thank you for replying. I actually don't have the 144Hz function enabled. As you said, it prevents G-Sync and HDR. So now I am running at 3840*2160 (native) at 120Hz. I have turned on the HDR function on the monitor and also in Windows display setting. By default, it looked grayish and washed out a bit. I read about changing the NVIDIA control panel settings. (running a RTX 2080 Super). I've been tinkering with the settings above, but even though the screen is vibrant, the dark colors are not dark at all. I guess I've never really changed the default settings in Nvidia before as my previous monitors didn't really require it.  I know it's in the eye of the beholder, but what would you recommend that the settings should be in overall? Should I go to 144Hz and disregard HDR and G-Sync? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMichaelB admin July 2020 Jeroen said: Thank you for replying.

Should I go to 144Hz and disregard HDR and G-Sync? These are all great questions. As you mentioned, this can be pretty subjective. Normally I would recommend looking at RTINGS for their settings with this panel, but it doesn't appear they've reviewed this model as of yet. That said, they do have their calibration guide available to help you calibrate with their downloaded patterns: https://www.rtings.com/monitor/learn/how-to-calibrate-your-monitor-settings.  Also keep in mind that when you tweak your settings, your ambient lighting will impact your viewing experience. A screen calibrated in a dark room will look dramatically different than a screen calibrated in a bright room and vice versa. I use an OLED TV for gaming, and I ended up calibrating multiple profiles, one for a dark room and one for a bright room, as the difference between the two can be staggering depending on the scene you are viewing. As for why your colors are washed out when enabling HDR, this is unfortunately a normal side effect of HDR. When you enable HDR, non-HDR content (SDR, standard sRGB, etc) are going to look washed out in comparison. It's only recommended to enable HDR when you are preparing to consume HDR content. More information on this can be found in the following resources: https://www.asus.com/support/FAQ/1041845/, https://www.dell.com/support/article/en-us/sln308136/colors-are-faded-and-washed-out-when-high-dynamic-range-is-enabled-in-windows-10?lang=en, and https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4040263/windows-10-hdr-advanced-color-settings#:~:text=Make%20sure%20your%20display%20or%20TV%20has%20HDR%20turned%20on.&text=Go%20to%20Settings%20%3E%20System%20%3E%20Display,if%20your%20display%20supports%20HDR10.. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Jeroen North Bergen, NJ ✭ July 2020 Thank you TSMichaelB That makes sense, even though it sounds ridiculous on Microsoft's end.  You'd figure that they'd find a solution for that.  I will keep HDR turned off in Windows unless I will view HDR content.

Wonder if there is an easier way. I will check out the RTINGS site you provided. Thanks again for your input. You're very welcome. I wouldn't recommend buying a color calibration tool unless you do work that requires extreme color accuracy. For the most part, you should be fine to eyeball it using the sample images available on RTINGS. As for the HDR issue with Windows, I agree entirely. I would imagine they could build a Windows theme around HDR content, and have it enable the moment you enable the HDR settings. This would force the desktop and settings to utilize HDR. The only issue with this idea is that there are still integrated Windows applications that wouldn't support HDR, and those would still look washed out in their individual application windows, but that would still be a far better compromise than the current solution. Hopefully we see better HDR support going forward, as I would like to utilize it more often on my OLED display as well. For gaming, it really is great technology. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook DarthMadMatt ✭ January 2 edited January 3 This is the only thread I could find discussing settings for this monitor so I hope people are still looking. I've been playing with the settings on this monitor for months second guessing myself. As it is for most the time I owned the monito I wasn't using HDR correctly. I too thought things were way too washed out. When I called Acer support they told me the monitor had its own algorithm and not to enable HDR in windows or console or it would double interpret. When you put the HDR setting on the monitor only it is slightly brighter and sharper than SDR (and SDR is supposed to be phenomenal on this monitor) so I believed him. It never set right with me though, HDR is supposed to be different enough. After I got my LG CX I realized I was lied to. Well long story later I ended up enabling HDR and fine tuning my calibrations. I had been playing with brightness and contrast independent but not at the same time. It wasn't until I set mine to B=37 C=87-100 G=.87-1.0 DV=.5 that I was like OK that looks about right!. I used some test patterns and games and what not to get where I was. I came across this thread seeing if I could find further tweaks. I got the brightness from test patterns, but there is the occasional game that needs me to set it higher (45-50 Witcher 3). If I go over 87 contrast it starts to black crush a little too much but sometimes it kills washed out blacks. The gamma I am going to tinker with now as I lowered mine to kill washed out blacks, but I see raising it makes things pop a little more and the is more details in the dark areas. DV I thought anything over 50% looked fake before, but I will check it out. Hope everyone is enjoying their monitors as I am. It is pretty nice when you get it set right and NO BURN IN! LOL Just have to sit back a bit or it burns the eyeballs. Share more comments please. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook DarthMadMatt ✭ January 2 edited January 3  Just to follow up, after playing with it a little more I am floating around: B=45-47 C=95-97 G=1.03-1.05 DV=57-64 I like the Pop the DV adds. The gamma kind of offsets the brightness reduction (I did for some washed out blacks). It seems my eyes change from day to day as to what looks right but this seems to look decent to me right now LOL! I tried it in a few games and checked SDR as well and they seemed pretty usable with some tweaks within games. Witcher 3 needed contrast cut back to low 50s to look good, so I don't know how often that sort of thin will come in to play. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Jeroen North Bergen, NJ ✭ January 5 Hey DarthMadMatt, You're right, I couldn't find anything on the net on this monitor. It's like people would like to forget about this thing lol. Thanks for responding though. I have tried your settings stated above. They seem to look better than what I had. To tell you the truth, I gave up on HDR with this monitor. There is so much hassle to get this monitor to look respectable. I tried with the settings above (HDR enabled in Windows) but it still was giving that washy look. With HDR disabled in Windows (but enabled on the monitor itself, HDR-1000), it actually doesn't look half bad. I will keep these settings until more refined.  Now to see if I should go to 144Hz (and giving up G-sync/freesync) or to stay on 120Hz with both options on. Thanks for sharing 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook DarthMadMatt ✭ January 12 edited January 28 I like the 120hz with everything. I'm glad for your original post as its got me messing around more with the monitor and liking the results. So now I'm trying to lock-in some settings and forget it lol. I now have set the monitor on HDR and set to auto not HDR 1000. Also with Windows HDR enabled the monitor's brightness locks at 100 but when HDR mode is not enabled in windows I have it set at 70. I am trying to keep things as constant as possible so B=50 C=(75-80 for SDR or 95-100 in windows HDR mode)  G=.91-.92 DV=73. So the only thing I am changing right now is the contrast depending on if it is actual HDR content or not. The rest I set in game.  Good luck and thanks for the thread(s)! 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook BrutalBipedal ✭ January 24 Hi all, I have the exact issue with the washed out black colours on the CG7.

Sometimes the settings in the system or in the monitor will override the settings of the game. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook DarthMadMatt ✭ January 29 edited January 31 You have to have HDR mode on auto or on on the monitor for HDR to be an option in most games. Something is just not quite right with the HDR on this monitor. Some things look pretty good but a lot of things look washed out and fuzzy when things are set correctly. I think some of this has to do with the state of HDR in general, but also to do with only 8bit color and the lack of ability to adjust HDR settings on this monitor (there is a gamma or white point problem). My PS5 didn't look near as good on this monitor as it does on my OLED (which is why I started searching for other peoples settings). Like the OP, I am starting to say screw fiddling with HDR. You have to adjust every time game specific. I am setting it to HDR AUTO on the monitor and leaving it at the Nvidia settings I posted earlier (B=50, C=75-80 65 for Witcher 3, G=.91-.92,DV=72-73). Some games need tweaking of the contrast setting, but thats all I have been changing. Also with the monitor set to auto and HDR off in Windows you can do as you mentioned and turn HDR on in games that support it (very few), but you have to adjust the contrast and everything anyway so you may as well just enable HDR in Windows when you intend to use it (whats one more click?).  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin January 29 Glad to have your input here @DarthMadMatt.

Trust me, it took a while for me to get that 60fps does not necessarily mean smooth, crisp graphics. If you get a lot of smearing, ghosting etc, do what I have done and set the monitor at 1440p. At least for games. The smoothness trumps any extra detail you see when standing still. I have been using it as 1440p only for desktop as well and its nice not having to scale anything. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook MadDarthMatt ✭ May 3 Want to see something cool?

This monitor is DEFINITELY for the enthusiast. There are many ways to make it look decent. My latest SDR settings are the closest to looking correct : Monitor HDR 1000 mode, NO HDR mode in windows NVIDIA set to B50 C77 G1.0 DV50 Monitor Brightness 100 OR NO HDR mode in windows NVIDIA set to B50 C77 G1.0 DV50 (note NOT reference mode) Monitor USER mode (can save as different modes later) Monitor Brightness 100 (or to taste) Monitor Contrast 50 Monitor Black Boost 5 Monitor Color Normal to taste Monitor Gamma 2.2 NOTE: Sometimes Nvidia color profile switches to windows default and you have to check Override to desktop reference, then uncheck it, then apply to get the colors to go back right. Anyway good luck to all! Hopefully my next post about a monitor will be about a slightly smaller OLED (though the 43" has grown on me) 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7K All Categories 1K The Blog 33 What's Trending 167 How to & Technical Guides 11 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 16 3D Printers 10 Maker 16 PC Build Guides 96 Reviews & Buying Guides 34 Build Showcase 17 Contests 39 Past Contests 1K The Community 1.8K General Discussion 108 New Members 127 Consumer Tech 42 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 78 Software 4 Audio/Visual 13 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 26 3D Printing 53 Retro Arcade/Gaming 86 All Other Tech 1.3K Store Information and Policy 51 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 113 Your Completed Builds 2.7K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 225 Graphics Cards 172 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 62 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 16 Monitors and Displays 30 Peripherals 10 All Other Parts 22 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

I had ordered a pre-built off amazon but with everything going on the company was unable to supply but im taking that as a blessing because i was on the fence of just building my own PC and this just confirms it. So what i need help with is pretty much what to buy, ive only ever used laptops so this will be a huge upgrade for myself. what i ordered off amazon is...  Ryzen 5 3600 3.6GHz, GTX 1650 4G, 500GB SSD, 8GB DDR4 3000MHz, RGB Fans, Windows 10 Home 64-bit, 802.11AC Wi-Fi i want to upgrade that ryzen 5 to a ryzen 7 and more memory. i am a complete noob at this so if anyone likes to use the PC builder and point my in the right direction that would be great. im going to be searching more things on this forums and looking on the internet in general but i thought id try my luck on posting this and seeing if i strike gold. Thanks in advance. Also my budget is 1500$ more or less, it think thats a good starting point for my first build. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Tknewl25 ✭ May 2020 so im looking and it seems to be that the ryzen 5 3600 might just be what i need and upgrading that right now can be just over kill 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSPhillipT admin May 2020 Hello @Tknewl25, welcome to the Micro Center Community! I was about to say that a R7 3700X might be a bit over kill, but this depends on how you answer a few questions.  Are we including monitor and peripherals to the budget?  If you already have a monitor or are planning on getting one, what resolution is it?  1080P?  1440P?  Lastly, what are you mainly doing on your computer?  If gaming, what games do you plan on playing?  Are you looking to stream/content create as well?  When it comes to a computer build, it helps to figure out what you want to do with your build before building it.   0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Tknewl25 ✭ May 2020 so the budget just consists of the pc itself, i have a keyboard,mouse,speakers and 2 monitors ready to go. The monitor is a sceptre 30" 21:9 Curved Gaming Monitor 2560 x 1080p Resolution and then i also have a 24" sceptre same 1080p that i will be duel monitoring. The games i will be playing are Ark, escape from tarkov, GTA5, Valorant, and will probably dabble with any MMO's i come across, also be playing OSRS in the background but you can play that on a phone from the 90s lol. i dont see myself streaming but i would not mind creating some content for my group of friends so nothing too big but id like a decent amount of memory to not have to worry about saving too many things, so yeah large memory, good graphics so i can see everything nice and smooth and beautiful, and can handle multitasking, running two different things on each screen.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSPhillipT admin May 2020 Gotcha, all the games you listed aren't super demanding besides GTA5 at certain parts. Mad respect to the OSRS!  Was a big RS head back in the day, always played around the idea of doing it all over again... just feels weird starting new since I was maxed (but it was RS3 lol).  Here is a quick build I made using some of the parts listed above and getting it around $1,000 If you are looking at the $1,500 budget, you can consider doing some upgrades, however I think as is and the games you are playing I don't think you would benefit from them.  I upgraded the RAM that you were originally getting to 16GB, and the SSD that you have is the best M.2 SSD you can get in my opinion.  I also upgraded the graphics card to a 1660 Super.  You definitely have room to upgrade, but I wouldn't go any higher than a 2060 Super unless you start doing 1440p Gaming.   I did not include any RGB Fans as they can get a bit annoying for a first time builder since they can use a second cable to manage the RGB and sometimes even include RGB Hubs/Controllers.  Can be a big headache for cable management on a first time build.  If you are willing to do it however, I recommend doing the Corsair LL120 as they are my favorite RGB Fans.  With iCue, you have crazy control with the lighting effects.  Just make sure all the fans have the proper orientation if you do go with the LL120s.   I would also consider adding a 2TB Hard Drive as just back up storage and a good way to not clog up the storage on your SSD.   0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Tknewl25 ✭ May 2020 Mr TSPhillipT you are an amazing person thank you so much, i am going to follow this build exactly and add the 2TB. as of right now my unit is actually activated til the 31st so june 1st is when il be doing the building of the pc thank you again and if you ever come over to play OSRS again let me kno i can definitely repay you for all the help you giving me 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7K All Categories 1K The Blog 33 What's Trending 167 How to & Technical Guides 11 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 16 3D Printers 10 Maker 16 PC Build Guides 96 Reviews & Buying Guides 34 Build Showcase 17 Contests 39 Past Contests 1K The Community 1.8K General Discussion 108 New Members 127 Consumer Tech 42 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 78 Software 4 Audio/Visual 13 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 26 3D Printing 53 Retro Arcade/Gaming 86 All Other Tech 1.3K Store Information and Policy 51 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 113 Your Completed Builds 2.7K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 225 Graphics Cards 172 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 62 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 16 Monitors and Displays 30 Peripherals 10 All Other Parts 22 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

But, even as they become a household idea, there are still many questions that people continue to ask about 3D printers, including which model they should purchase, what is needed to properly 3D print, and how much money should be set aside in order to print. So today, we’re going to shed some light on 3D printers and go over which 3D printers are the best fit for your needs.   What are 3D Printers? 3D printing is the process of making three-dimensional solid objects from a digital file. Just like how traditional printers take digital text files and print them onto a piece of paper, 3D printers take files of 3D models and print them out as 3D objects. The creation of a 3D printed object is done by means of what is called an additive process, or laying down successive layers of material until the object is created. Each of these layers can be seen as a thinly sliced cross-section of the object.   Different Types of 3D Printers While there are many different types of 3D printers, only a few are commonly used by everyday consumers. We’ll take a look at the most common ones so you can understand the difference between each type of printer, and which one is the best fit for you. FDM filament printers: The most popular 3D printers on the market are those that use FDM (fused deposition modeling) technology. FDM printers gained much of their popularity thanks to lower costs and ease of accessibility, and have the simplest functionality. They operate using thermoplastic filament, melting down the plastic and printing it through a metal nozzle onto a printing bed layer by layer. These printers also generally use non-toxic filament and typically have open printing beds. Because of their simplicity in how they function and affordable price, this is probably the best option for private users who are new to 3D printing.   SLA resin printers: Resin printers use SLA (or Stereolithography) technology, which is the oldest of all 3D printing technologies. Even though they were the first 3D printers created, they still remain one of the best to this day. Unlike FDM filament printers, SLA resin printers use a photopolymer resin tank and a UV laser beam; the laser forms the part, which grows on the printer’s platform. Resin printers are arguably better than other 3D printers thanks to their ability to print highly detailed objects, making them perfect for creating prototypes, figurines, or complex and small parts. The downside of resin printers is that they give off a very strong smell and everything printed with them must be washed and cured.   DLP resin printers: Another resin printer, DLP stands for Digital Light Processing, which works slightly differently than SLA tech. DLP printers use all of the same materials as regular SLA printers, but also feature an ultraviolet light source projector, and have a more streamlined process of curing resin. DLP resin printers are also cheaper than SLA printers, making them a better choice for private users.   SLS printers: SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) printers again work very similarly to SLA printers, with a printer laser instead used to sinter materials together, instead of melting them. SLS printers also use polymer powder instead of traditional filament. These printers are most commonly used to create industrial products for places such as laboratories, research centers, teaching centers, and more. These printers are generally only used by larger companies, with very few models available for private users.   What Do You Need To Use a 3D Printer? Printer Filament: On the basest level, to use a 3D printer all that is needed is a power source for the unit, and printer filament. Filaments used in 3D printing are thermoplastics, which are plastic materials that can be shaped and molded, and solidify when cooled. Unlike other plastics, they melt instead of burn when heated. There are dozens of different types of filaments, and the type that you will need depends on the 3D printer that you have. Be sure to figure out which type of filament is compatible with your 3D printer before making your purchase -- filaments can also range in price quite a bit, and different types of filaments can be used to make different sorts of objects. If you're looking for more information about 3D printer filament, be sure to check out our Filament Guide!   Download or Create 3D Models: Actually printing, however, requires something to print. You will need to either acquire 3D models online or make them yourself. 3D models are created using 3D modeling software, which is commonly referred to as CAD (computer-aided design) software. Blender, ZBrush, and Autodesk Fusion 360 are some of the more popular 3D modeling software out there. Any of them will do if you're looking to design your own print designs. However, if you're new to the 3D printing space and worried about designing your own models, you're in luck. There are multiple sites with a wide variety of already-created 3D models ready for downloading and printing. Thingiverse, MyMiniFactory, Cults3D, and CGTrader are some of the most popular sites that you should check out.   Slicing Software: After you have your 3D model downloaded, you’ll then need to prepare it for printing in another software, which will translate the model into machine instructions. This is known as slicing software, also known as slicers. Once your 3D model is loaded into a slicer, it will virtually “slice” the model into individual layers. The result is a new file that consists of G-code, which is the language of 3D printers. These files contain important information, including the correct printing speed and temperature, layer height, thickness, and much more.   The Best 3D Printer for You So now that you know a bit more about 3D printers, it’s time to ask the question: what 3D printer is best for you? Well, that entirely depends on your budget, and what you’re trying to achieve with a 3D printer. Here are some of the best 3D printers currently on the market, sorted from lower-end to high-end units.   Best Budget 3D Printer - Creality LD-002R ($199) Creality LD-002R The Simple Creality LD-002R is one of the most affordable 3D printers out there, costing just under $200. There’s a lot to love about this resin printer, from its compact form factor to its easy-to-operate simplicity and incredibly consistent prints.  The only real downsides to this printer are its touchscreen interface, which has reportedly been a bit unresponsive at times, as well as the product’s manual, which really doesn’t help the user out a whole lot. Thankfully, the 3D printing community is incredibly helpful and has plenty of resources online to help get you printing. Even with these two small caveats, the Simple Creality LD-002R is fantastic and is strongly recommended for anybody looking to get into 3D printing on a budget.   Best Mid-Range 3D Printer - Creality Ender 6 ($569) Creality Ender-6 The Creality Ender 6 is a fantastic mid-range option for 3D printing enthusiasts. Featuring a large open bed with walls covering all sides of it and a door for access to the inside, this 3D printer is one of the most secure of all open-bedded printers. This printer has absolutely fantastic build quality and feels incredibly sturdy, and results in some amazing 3D prints. It’s noteworthy just how large this 3D printer is as well, allowing for prints that go beyond the small-scale options other printers may limit you to. At just $569, the Creality Ender 6 is a great deal, and perfect for those looking to print large objects with FDM filament. Best Luxury 3D Printer - Snapmaker 2.0 Modular 3-in-1 ($1,799) Snapmaker 2.0 Modular 3-in-1 The Snapmaker 2.0 is an incredible 3D printer, acting also as a laser cutter and CNC machine in a 3-in-1 package. Judging it solely as a 3D printer, this machine has excellent print quality, has great and easy-to-understand software, and is overall designed excellently. The printer is made entirely out of machined metal, with the build quality greater than most competing models. The printer is also very easy to assemble, with the instructions being incredibly straightforward and simple. Perhaps the only real downside of this printer is its noise levels: at times, it can be quite loud.  Though this printer is quite expensive, its incredibly high level of quality makes it worth it -- and the fact that you are getting a laser cutter and CNC machine in this package as well makes it feel even more worthwhile. Simply put, if you can afford this printer and will use all of its features, then it’s more than worth the purchase.   Our Recommendation - Lulzbot Mini 2 ($1,499) Lulzbot Mini 2 The Lulzbot Mini 2 is our go-to 3D printer recommendation for many reasons: it’s incredibly reliable and easy to use, has top-notch printing quality, and is very user-friendly. It has a very simple and straightforward design, making it easy to use for even those new to the world of 3D printing. The Lulzbot Mini 2 improves on the Lulzbot Mini 1, with faster motors, a slightly larger print bed, and an improved printhead that can handle more flexible materials. The printer also prints fast and quietly on a compact print bed, all of which are solid plusses.   If you’re looking for a 3D printer that offers you great quality printing with lots of options for filament with a quiet and fast print, then the Lulzbot Mini 2 is one of the best options you can find. But with that said, it comes at a cost: $1,499 is a steep price, and only those looking for the added benefits of paying more should invest in this. But at the end of the day, it’s hard to get a better 3D printer that delivers as well as this one.   And there you have it -- four of some of the best 3D printers currently on the market, for every type of budget. Whether you’ve got a huge budget or only have a few hundred dollars available to spend, you should have no trouble with affording a 3D printer! In 2021, owning a 3D printer is more affordable and realistic than ever and we’re sure you’ll find something to scratch that 3D printing itch. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7K All Categories 1K The Blog 33 What's Trending 167 How to & Technical Guides 11 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 16 3D Printers 10 Maker 16 PC Build Guides 96 Reviews & Buying Guides 34 Build Showcase 17 Contests 39 Past Contests 1K The Community 1.8K General Discussion 108 New Members 127 Consumer Tech 42 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 78 Software 4 Audio/Visual 13 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 26 3D Printing 53 Retro Arcade/Gaming 86 All Other Tech 1.3K Store Information and Policy 51 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 113 Your Completed Builds 2.7K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 225 Graphics Cards 172 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 62 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 16 Monitors and Displays 30 Peripherals 10 All Other Parts 22 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

(3`s) Top3k, 300M PPD, 3k WU.  Just something to help keep the fire lit & noticing the 3`s commonality, 3 goals with 3s.  For my first setup, it was to reach 5M/5days. I`m uping my July Hat Trick goal... my new goal (incentive gimmick) is the 2-by-4s, Top 2k, 400M,4kWUs. The current 2k threshold is  2,000 Foxbrix Curecoin 438,506,183, which is moving up ~1M pts/day, so by July31 it`ll take ~447M pts. 3 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook ryau ✭✭✭✭✭ July 2020 My stalled CPU WUs have cleared themselves out now, so I guess the server came back online. @cine_chris - good luck with your new goal! 4 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook cine_chris Powder Springs, GA ✭✭✭ July 2020 edited July 2020 This is just a signature block test...

It's already been stated in many of the reports that the computer aid that has been dedicated to the research has rapidly increased the speed of the research and trials. Also take a look at some of the other reasearch that FAH is assisting with as well, I'm sure it some of the other research items have made some type of a impact on some in the group. I know for myself that I plan on having some systems continue after the covid research has completed. I made that choice a while ago after finding out some things that effected some family and friends also after talking to some of their doctors as well where it was mentioned about the research that continues. So for me I'll have something brewing here no stop for sure, not saying eveyone else needs to by any means its a choice myself and family have made. 3 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook kmiller922 Glenside, Pa ✭✭✭ July 2020 A Special Note For All New Folders: Make sure you get your passkey setup for max points per work unit.

After punching that into my spreadsheet, it showed 5.31 days. I`d need to add 1/2M PPD to my current output to reach that goal. Last night I cobbled together a GTX750 + 2ea GTX1050Ti on a Supermicro X9SCM-F, that should do it. One glitch, but it`s currently pumping out 472k PPD... close enough, I hope.  The  GPU drawer is empty. The spreadsheet shows 5.07days, it`ll be close. 3 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook ChrisHarshman ✭✭ July 2020 cine_chris said: ...Last night I cobbled together a GTX750 + 2ea GTX1050Ti on a Supermicro X9SCM-F, that should do it.

Now if the IRS would allow the additional power draw to be classed as a charitable contribution, that could help keep people folding. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook cine_chris Powder Springs, GA ✭✭✭ July 2020 ChrisHarshman said: Good luck to you, I hope you make it!  Even if that one 1050 has a label on it that say "BAD"  I didn`t expect anyone to notice that. The card showed a fault while folding, so I pulled it out and tagged it. However, it turned out to be the mobo, but he still got the name.  Now, if the other 1050Ti fails he`ll be `really BAD`.    The replacement mobo was only a single slot, and Mr BAD was displaced by a more desirable 1660Ti, thus he got to live in the drawer.  But, the story didn`t end there (con`t above). 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook teamtempest ✭ July 2020 ryau said: kmiller922 said: Just some food for everyones thoughts.

If your power company lets you make comparisons over time, and you showed consistent excess use (and cost) from the time you started folding, that might be enough. Would it count as a "contribution in kind"? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook ryau ✭✭✭✭✭ July 2020 teamtempest said: That would be nice, but how to prove it?
