First timer building a water cooled rigid tubing rig here. Doing CPU/GPU.

I'm stuck on the plumbing of the rig, and planning exactly what I need to order:

>How do I plan a loop out properly?

>How do I know exactly what fittings to order?

>What is the best tubing ID/OD size?

>How will I know exactly how many fittings to order?

>How do I get light blue or purple fluid?

>Is UV fluid worth the hassle? Can I get it in light blue or purple?

Read the instructions and you'll be fine.

Basically this.

If you don't know what you're doing, buy liquid cooling kits that include all the necessary parts of the appropriate sizes to secure the system in place.

Once you get comfortable seeing how it all works and fits together then you can move onto advanced topics like one large radiator with tubing looped between all the parts in the system.

You can use EKWB loop planner tool, it will tell you exact amount of fittings you need, and all other parts. Very simple yet effective tool for first timers to help avoid missing parts.

im looking to get a new lap top in like a week and a half from now, nothing crazy just tf2 and robo craft but anyone at work i ask for imput is constently trying to get me to by some like 500 alien ware right after i clearly say im on a 300 budget would you guys recomend?

im hoping to stay under $300 and get at least enough power to run tf2 and some other simple low power multiplayer games

Anonymous 17/03/03(Fri)13:12 No. 22449 ID: d7b757


I'd pick something with a core CPU rather than a celeron or pentium, if you're going with intel. AMD's APUs are also worth a look as they used to have good graphics performance (I haven't checked in a while)

(acer isn't exactly a great brand I'd recommend, but I'm just giving an example)
then you check the graphics are intel hd graphics 520 and google for tf2 performance
or check on youtube

you may have to shop around and look at features. (do you need touch? screen size etc)

Anonymous 17/03/03(Fri)22:05 No. 22450 ID: 1d7577

If you're looking for a basic laptop for work and general usage get an Intel CPU.
If you're looking for a basic "gaming" laptop get an AMD-APU.

AMD's APUs are great if you're on a budget, I built my current desktop using A10-7700k and it's run everything I've thrown at it (in 720p with mid-high settings). If you're building a desktop with one it'll be more expensive if you shell out for a discreet graphics card in the future but at least you can game while you saving for one; personally, I spotted an R7-250 for $30 and cross-fired it with my APU for a noticeable improvement over the APU alone. The big thing to note with APUs is RAM speed is crucial, the difference between 1600 and 2133 is a good 15-20fps.

Intel laptops will generally have better CPUs and weaker GPUs than AMD laptops.

However most tasks are being offloaded to GPU now and CPUs reached the "fast enough" stage around the time of Core2. As a result unless you're doing something really CPU intensive like compressing video you're unlikely to notice the weaker CPU, while you will notice the GPU being slower in just about everything else. Even Windows/Linux offloads functions to the GPU.

The problem is $300 is just too low for anything except an Intel Atom or Celeron, with a bottom of the barrel barely functional crippled GPU. There's a lot of Chromebooks down that low, but you probably won't want to live with ChromeOS on hardware that's basically the same (Atom or Celeron).

If you're willing to go refurbished there are some better options, although some of them are rather long in the tooth...

If you need a better understanding of any laptop with minimal information like that one, just punch its model number into Google, someone will list better information on it.

This is some OLD shit so most of you probably wont be able to help. I have recently modded my Nintendo Wii with Homebrew, and noticed some people have custom Wii Menus. I looked up some tutorials, and got the .csm file and the channel installed on homebrew. I did everything right, at least I think I did, but when I load MyMenu it gives me a blank screen. Wii mote freezes, so you have to power off the console via unplugging. I have re-done this 3 times, blank screen every time. I have the 4.3u menu version. Please help, my wii menu looks plain and naked compared to others.

I'm not sure how active they still are, but GBATemp.net used to have a ton of information on Wii softmodding, including pretty much anything and everything you'd want to do with Homebrew. I'm showing a lot of posts in the past week, maybe search through their forums for a file someone else has posted or, if that turns up empty, ask a question. They know a hell of a lot more about what you want to do than I do. I just wanted my Wii to load games off USB...

Win2K on a LAN Anonymous 17/01/13(Fri)19:02 No. 22430 ID: 1ddc06 [Reply]

I have to retype this because of an error :(

I have made a Win2K virtual machine to run as a retro PC game host on a LAN... because it's half the size of XP, that's why!

Okay, I created a shared folder called "test share", but when I try to access it from other machines (XP and 7) the folder is visible but I get the "x is not accessible, you might not have permissions etc" error. I have enabled the Guest account in Advanced User Management, and there are no firewalls involved, but I can't seem to recall what else involved here because it's been so fucking long since I last did this! And this is the point where I need /halp/.

Anonymous 17/01/14(Sat)00:26 No. 22431 ID: 1ddc06

Op here... nvm, I found it.

Turns out that I had to add Guest to the permissions list directly, even after enabling it. I seem to recall that it was supposed to do that automatically (which may or may not be a wise idea), but doing this one folder at a time could easily become an annoyance, albeit an annoyance that I'm willing to handle.

Anonymous 17/01/14(Sat)01:03 No. 22432 ID: a870df

Turn off simple file sharing, which makes you use usernames & passwords to connect to shares. So long as the account you login with on each system uses the same name & password you won't have to bother with typing anything. Otherwise you type the name & password and you're in.

7 also needs to be switched back to 40/56-bit encryption vs. 128-bit. You'll also want to disable homegroup but since you have XP hopefully you've already done that.

Also XP and 7 need to be at least Pro, the Home versions can only network with other home versions. 2000 and earlier only had "pro" networking, Home was an abortion created for XP.

Anonymous 17/01/14(Sat)01:07 No. 22433 ID: a870df

There's two sets of permissions, the share permissions, which control who can access the share, and the file permissions, which control who can access the files. If you had added guest to the share permissions you would need to still add guest to the file permissions, otherwise it would be able to connect but not actually read any files.

As far as file permissions go you can enable inheritable permissions on child objects, which means you set the permissions on test share, then set all the items in test share to inheritable, and they all use the same permissions set in one spot (test share).

replacing speaker with 1/4" jack chrissychris 16/12/20(Tue)01:04 No. 22414 ID: cc91cb [Reply]

File 148219224012.jpg - (110.29KB , 1000x1000 , 148217815616.jpg )

Alrighty, I am looking for some help.

For the sake of experimentation and fun, I'd like to replace the speaker of a shitty kids toy (very similar to the one in the pic) with a 1/4" audio jack so it can play through a larger amp, possibly even through guitar effect pedals.

I've already tried this twice. Taken apart the toy, soldered in a 1/4" jack, and plugged it in. Both times I ended up with a reallyyyy spotty and quiet sound. At first I thought it may be a bad soldering job, but now I feel like it could be due to the low power of the toy, it takes 3 AA batteries.

So what's the deal here? Any ideas what could be wrong?

Lol stupid question. I got this. Thanks!

Anonymous 16/12/21(Wed)23:42 No. 22420 ID: 5a53ee

I figured it probably had a voltage difference, not really amperage. Measure it with a multimeter, if it's less than .3V or more than 2V then you need to adjust the voltage to match the line level input you're using.

You can see a simple circuit for connecting a speaker level output, used by PAs and other amps, to line level input here:

But ultimately since you're talking about a nonstandard speaker output you need to measure the output to figure out what its putting out so you can adapt it to the line input standard.

Anonymous 17/01/04(Wed)03:14 No. 22428 ID: 1187da

Can you make the device to produce a constant tone so you can take multimeter readings?

If so, then please provide the voltage across the internal speaker and its current on maximum volume. Use true RMS setting for these measurements. You may substitute the current reading if the speaker has its ohms marked, then you may report that instead.

Also, are you planning to interface this with a guitar preamp? In that case the output impedance should be matched to that of a pick-up, rather than line level.
