    MOUSE ALTERNATIVE FOR ESSENTIAL TREMOR

    Thanks all, some great ideas, some bit pricey for surprise present to help him out. I think as suggested i will try 1 of the big tech stores and see if i can get an idea by using things like track ball or touchscreen monitor which would be the easiest to handle.

    WIndows 10 Troubleshooting Akasa usb-c front panel

    Thanks Darren, if they send me another out i`ll keep hold of it, but think i`ll just leave this one in as long as the port works, rather plug cable in a certain way then take it back out and fit another.

    ryzen 2700x new build temp issues

    Thanks Darren do you think 38 to 40 c is a normal idle temp for the 2700x, I'm seeing some people say there's is more like 35c Only just finished it and it's 10 at night, tomorrow I'll explore more settings and core speeds, perhaps have to try some better thermal paste

    Hi all, Looking for some advice on which base for my system, the 2700x & 8700k seem fairly close in terms of performance, but significantly different in terms of price. After using Intel only for over a decade, I am some what reluctant to try AMD again after so long without using any of...

    Failed pump in aio cooler

    I ended up going with the cooler master TX3 EVO 3, it has good reviews with decent performance but does not needed mounted under motherboard. Maybe slightly under the 212 in performance but balanced with price and hassle to fit, it`s a reasonable trade off

    Failed pump in aio cooler

    The only sound is the fans, there is no sound or feel of the coolant flowing. Unfortunately I can`t RMA it must be at least couple years old by now, never was massively impressed by water loop anyway much more hassle for very little gain. Just have to look for a good air cooler, anyone...
