Is it possible to replace this with a WiFi 6 AX model? What are your recommendations?  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSMikeW admin July 2020 Unfortunately, it won't. This is due compatibility between the port and the card. You'll notice on the Asrock site it states in that section, "Supports CNVio1 WiFi module(Intel® Wireless-AC 9560/9462/9461) only.".  The WIFI 6 AX200 module is CNVio2. They're not compatible. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Chirp ✭ July 2020 I was afraid of this. Looks like I have to make another run and by a WiFi 6 AX3000 PCIe WiFi Card.

Locate your Windows 10 packaging. Within the packaging of the DVD or USB, you will find a multi-colored sticker that may say 'Windows 10 Home/Pro' (dependent on what was purchased). Some of the key will be covered for security reasons. The full key will need to be revealed. On this sticker, gently scratch off the grey/silver Microsoft portion with a coin to reveal the full product key. 2. To activate this key on your Windows 10 system, right click on the Start button, typically found at the lower left corner of the screen and from the list of options, click on Settings. 3. From the Windows Settings page, from the list of categories, click on the Update & Security option. 4. Select Activation on the menu on the left side of Settings. 5. Click on Change Product Key on the Activation window. 6.  On the Enter a Product Key window, type in the key from the product key sticker. Entering dashes will be done automatically so do not include those after each set of letters and numbers. You should have a total of 25 characters. If you have less than that, double check that you scratched off all the silver material. 7.  Click Next to complete activation and you're all set! © Vanilla Foundation Theme 2021 Powered By Vanilla Community Article Why is my game taking so long to load in with 120 frames and 10 ping? — Micro Center Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker {$smarty.capture.menu} Activity Categories Discussions Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker Home › General Discussion Why is my game taking so long to load in with 120 frames and 10 ping? JustinBernardi ✭ May 2020 in General Discussion I recently bought a asus gtx 1660 super 06g Phoenix and a 500 watt power supply. I have an amd fx(tm) 4300 quad core processor at 3.80 ghz and 8 gigs of ram. Would like to figure out how to fix this issue. Do I need a new processor? Motherboard? Fans?  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Answers TSMikeW admin May 2020 Loading would be mainly effected by your drive performance. Do you have an SSD? Also with that GPU the FX-4300 is going to be showing it's age. The CPU will bottleneck the GPU to some extent. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook BubbleMax MN ✭ May 2020 @JustinBernardi could I ask what game you are trying to load into. Some games are both RAM memory hungry and frequency hungry. From what I'm seeing though its more likely the former is your problem. Often times if the frequency is high enough it can sometimes  "vibrate" I guess might be the word through its fps problems. But the loading process might be looking for more ram in total to use to load in faster. An SSD or M.2 can supplement this bottlenecking, but ultimately the RAM to a degree is sort of a lubricant for the CPU. Often times a little more than you need with RAM is better than being just enough. (Kinda the same principal of choosing a Power Supply; the idea of wanting to have more power than you might need rather than just enough.)  Though as a disclaimer you don't need to go crazy with a ram upgrade if you buy new ram. 16GB's right now is the sweet spot that is suggested cause most systems don't go too much over 12 to 14 GB's of ram even when mirroring and or streaming. Min specs of games are not good guidelines!!! (Unless your budget goal is all low graphics and fps settings.) You want a balanced gaming PC setup NOT too much and not too little. With ram its not really talked about much but there are four states RAM memory is often in. There is "used" which as it sounds like the ram in use. Theres the "2nd state cashed and this somewhat bleeds into the third state standby" this middle state is a big "what if" state. Its basically ram that might be used temporarily to load in big CPU tasks. But then will return to their standby phase. This is where I think a lot of budget builds sometimes don't know about. And then of course the last 4th state "unused/not in use memory"  Its really the 2nd and 3rd state "of standby and cached" that can both end up temporarily hogging rather than eating ram. Basically its a large portion of RAM devoted to the CPU saying "I might need all this ram so just in case I'm going to devote this larger than needed portion to loading  in all the important critical computing. " This insures things load in properly however it potentially comes at the cost of then CPU is focused if this bottlenecks on its one task if the standby and cashed states fill up the memory. Leaving the PC unable to make other requests. Or it might force your game to halt opening and wait for the other application to finish what its doing.  Lastly it could be that you have a lot of background process going on such as windows update tends to take overall priority as in literally pull the cpu's focus and can potentially also rev up the memory. When installing or downloading. Both of these can massively hinder gaming performance.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Sign In or Register to comment. Howdy, Stranger!

Some of these words we know as they are now apart of our daily technical lives when using our computers, but other words we may not fully be aware of what they mean and what they are used for when it comes to Computer Networking. Below are some common networking terms and meaning. IP Address = The unique network address that identifies a computer or a device on the internet or a network. Example: Your router's IP address is 192.168.1.0 and your Dell Computer that is connected to your router wirelessly, has an IP address of 192.168.1.3. The next device or computer that is connected to your router may have an IP address of 192.168.1.11.  Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) = A network server that assigns IP addresses to computers and devices that are on the internet or a network. Example: Your router will have a DHCP server feature that will enable it to assign IP addresses to each computer and device that is connected to it (Router). Domain Name System (DNS) = A system or service that translates and transforms domain names into a IP Addresses. Example: Microcenter's website is "Microcenter.com". Microcenter.com is the domain name for that website. But behind the domain name the website sites on a web server that is on a network. DHCP (see above for the meaning) assigns an IP address (see above) of 10.10.10.10 to the web server for Microcenter.com. DNS allows your computer to identify the IP address for domain names such as Microcenter.com or CNN.com. All websites have an IP Address for the server the website sits on even though the name (domain) is only seen.  Local Area Network (LAN) = It identifies the collection of multiple devices and computers connected together in a physical location as a network for a home or small business. Example: Your router will connect your computer, smart TV, smart cell phone, etc., all together in a network locally in your home and location. Wide Area Network (WAN) = It connects multiple computers and devices over a wide spread area such as cities, states and countries. LAN's are connected or linked together to make up WAN's. Example: The internet is a WAN. To see the Microcenter.com website from your computer at home, different LAN's have to be connected or linked over the internet to enable the website to show up on someone's computer, wherever they are located. © Vanilla Foundation Theme 2021 Powered By Vanilla
