Okay, first get the .iso file, then open a terminal.

Type
sudo su

it will ask you for your pasword, once you type it in anything run from the terminal will have administrative wrights

Type
lsblk

This will show you how each storage device is recognised by the system. You are looking for the line that shows your flash drive (storage devices should be sd<letter> and each partition should be labeled as sd<letter><number>) we're going to call the flash drive "sdx"

Now you need to find the iso from the terminal,

type
ls
To show the folders in the current directioy,

type
cd <folder name>
To go into that folder,

Type
cd ..
To go up one folder
We're foing to call the iso "filename.iso"

warning, if you do this next part wrong it's possible to destroy any data on the computer

Once you find the file and the flash drive name run
dd if=filename.iso of=/dev/sdx
This will copy the iso bit for bit to the flash drive.

If you put it on a list pcpp will give you an estimate, this is already padded so feel free to be close to it (unless you're overclocking, then pad it some more

Oops, almost forgot about you. http://pcpartpicker.com/list/PFhnQV tbis is a bit more cost effective, i used a non-overclocking motherboard and lower wattage psu and only 8gb of less fancy ram. I tried not to mess with aestetics. Assuming 8gb of ram is enough (it usually is) and that overclocking won't be missed there is no performance loss.

As far as price/performance goes, not usually. But many people like to just because they can.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Cheaper components but same performance."

It allows you to run your components faster than what they are designed for, but you have to have components that are built for it along with some extra juce available from the power supply

Sacrificing the ability to overclock your cpu would lower the price substantially, in a sec I'll draw up a list for it.

sometimes video cards have support for only a certain numper of passive adaptors, some of which are used on the card itself to give different video outputs.

Try using an active adaptor or using monitors that use the native ports

The best way is to use a combination of torture tests and more conservative tests (like a benchmark) but really just about any load is acceptable as long as you state how you tested

Comment reply on Forum Topic "How do *YOU* measure CPU Load temperature?"

I run prime95 until the temprature stabilizes. Some people say that it isn't useful to know how something performs under torture test loads, but if the temps are fine with prime95 you know that you will never have overheating problems unless something is very wrong.

as long as you don't put a ton of stress on it there shouldn't be any problems.

Note that in the grid of pins there should be one missing which corresponds to a blocked hole on the plug.

Well, it has one real advantage over the one I linked, it has a 3x3 antenna array vs a 2x2 on the one I linked. The point is kind of moot because that ap only has a 2x2 array.

The one I linked uses the intel 7260 chipset which is one of the fastest around. If you ask me, expensive wifi cards are a bit of a scam.

Well, the router and ap will try not to step on each other's toes, but it would be reccomended to see if you can turn wifi off on the router (I have also seen people put rf sheilding over their wifi router if they cannot deactivate the wifi network in settings)

If they are both broadcasting it will not effect range, but it could effect speed (which could be fixed with a touch of know-how) (doing the rf sheilding would be simpler though)

Comment reply on Forum Topic "extender vs access point for internet"

  • 45 months ago

As far as hardware recommendations, there is no consumer grade "wifi router" that is faster and more reliable than an enterprise grade access point. It may be a bit more than you wanted to spend, but this thing will probrably be obsolete before you start having trouble with it. It will handily deliver the full internet speed to your computer and connect all of your wifi connected stuff too.

And this uses one of the best wifi cards intel makes and is well priced.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "extender vs access point for internet"

Hmm, interesting situation. My suggestion would be to use a wireless ap that has a 2.4 and 5ghz band and connecting the normal devices to 2.4ghz and your desktop to the 5ghz.

The logic behind this is that wifi is a "polite" standard, which means the ap talks to each device in turn. This means that the more devices that are connected the slower it gets. It also has to wait for other aps that are in range to talk to their devices, so you can't just throw more hardware at it. If you have a 2.4ghz and 5ghz band, the two bands can safely ignore each other as there can be no crosstalk. The 5ghz band is theoretically faster, but has a shorter range. Connecting everything else to the 2.4ghz network gives the expected results of wifi, kinda pokey but usually good enough. Then the computer connected to the 5ghz band has open range and no competition for bandwidth.

If you're going to use the accessories, definately. Some of the things are just handy to have around.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Difference between HyperX Cloud Is and Cloud IIs"

  • 45 months ago

The accessories that differ are, alternative velor pads, a control box, a 2m extension, a trs x2 to trrs adapter, the travel bag, and an airplane adapter.

Velor pads- these are included as an alternative to the stock leather pads, they are made from a breathable fabric that will keep your ears from getting hot, but at the sacrifice of some of the low end sound and some sound leakage.

The control box- it has inline volume control and a mic mute

2m extension cable- pretty self explanitory

Trs x2 to trrs adapter- it changes the seperate mic and headphone plugs common to desktops to the single plug with both mic and headphones like is found on phones or ultrabooks.

Travel bag- once again, self explanitory

Airplane adaptor- airplanes use weird plugs for audio for no particular reason (i think its ts x2), this is an adaptor for that.

Well, the point of an access point is to broadcast a wifi network and to connected the divices to the network it is plugged into. It wouldn't "extend" the wifi network so much as make an entirely new one.

will provide more details later
