Decided to finally replace the dead ear speaker on my S7 edge, and I was successful :) However I hated getting the back cover off and I miss having easily removable back covers.

For some reason my USB network dongle appears in the "Safely remove hardware and Eject media" list: i.imgur.com/zbnhycm.png Anyway to remove it?

One of my front fans sounds like it won't last much longer, however a regular sized fan won't fit, as they are proprietary 20mm thick fans with tiny screw holes, so I guess if the fan fails I'd be left with a single 120mm intake. I cannot find any fans that'll fit.

Finally got a second Monitor which I've orientated vertically next to my main one.

I seem to have Google Chrome dark mode enabled now for some reason. Well not going to complain.

Well one of my case fans started to make a loud grinding noise, RIP. Luckily I had a spare lying around.

After nearly every windows Update I have to uninstall and reinstall my network drivers in order for the 5GHz to work.

I had to do some DIY in my PC case today. Basically in the front of the my case there are these foam-like dust filters, and recently they were starting to get pulled into the fans, creating a lot of noise. So to fix it I had to use some staples in order to secure the filters in place so they wouldn't interfere with the fans. imgur.com/Fep0xBO At least it works, but now my case has some staples on the front :c

I have a network driver problem, every time I update my Wifi Adapters driver, it stops working. I can still see all the wifi networks but connecting to them doesn't work. If I roll back the driver it works again, however recently Windows keeps updating the driver each time I boot up, causing the wifi to fail again. Any ideas on what's going on?

I hit a new low temp for my CPU today, 22C on one of the cores. That's what happens when you leave your window open on a very windy day.

I've noticed something about my GPU, the listed boost clock is only 1797MHz, yet while MSIafterburner when playing demanding games, it reports to clock speed went up to 1937MHz, and I haven't done any overclocking :P

Gaming PC build GeForce GTX 1070 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition, Core i7-4790 4-Core 3.6GHz, 16GB performance review

According to the top 1000 recommended requirements for PC games a PC with a Core i7-4790 4-Core 3.6GHz processor, a GeForce GTX 1070 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition graphics card and 16GB RAM is better performing than 675 games from that list. The main hardware in this PC puts the Core i7-4790 4-Core 3.6GHz as a bottleneck component. If this was upgraded then the system could increase the number of games it could run to 930 at recommended requirement.

Lets see how this PC performs with a popular game like Cyberpunk 2077. In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 1070 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 69 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Cyberpunk 2077 then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 138 FPS or the Medium returning 109 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 73 FPS and then Ultra gets 52 FPS.

2nd most popular game: Assassins Creed: Valhalla - In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 1070 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 47 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Assassins Creed: Valhalla then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 71 FPS or the Medium returning 61 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 52 FPS and then Ultra gets 36 FPS.

3rd most popular game: Genshin Impact - In summary, 1440p resolution shows itself to be the optimum performance vs visuals for the GeForce GTX 1070 MSI Gaming X 8GB Edition. While it can certainly get a strong 1080p Ultra of 69 FPS, if you want to move up to 1440p on Genshin Impact then we can see 1440p Low setting getting 138 FPS or the Medium returning 109 FPS. Change graphics settings up to High for 73 FPS and then Ultra gets 52 FPS.
