    Budget 51-70k Should I wait for B450 motherboards?

    I was looking forward to building a new computer this month and had almost finalized a build with a Ryzen 5 2600, a Gigabyte B350 motherboard, G.Skill 8GB 3000 Mhz RAM and a GTX 1060. However I'm having some last minute doubts on whether I should wait for B450 motherboards. Some models were...

    PC Peripherals Need an ergonomic chair

    I think it's best to get one with a bottom cushion and a netted back, which provides sufficient airflow. Also make sure that the cushion is thin so that it doesn't absorb much heat, but is still comfortable.

    Reliance Jio Rollout

    I'm experiencing direct download throttling. YouTube, browsing and even Netflix work perfectly fine, but direct downloads are super slow. The problem persists even with a VPN like TunnelBear. Not sure how they're recognizing the data through the VPN.

    Anyone got Windows 10 Anniversary Update yet?

    I think that is a huge exaggeration. I can't think of any rational reason for why you would think so poorly of macOS. It seems to me that macOS is just as powerful as Windows or Linux. If you do all your work online, the operating system you choose makes little to no difference, and Mac fits...

    CPU/Mobo Need a new motherboard

    Fan controllers are large and clunky and decent ones come close to 5k. I figured that I could get a good motherboard for close to the same price. And correct me if I'm wrong, but the automatic fan control would, I believe, be better on a new motherboard than the stock one, hence negating the...

    CPU/Mobo Need a new motherboard

    Six years ago I bought a Dell Studio XPS 7100 desktop PC. Although I regret not having built one myself, the old computer still serves me to this day for basic gaming, browsing and work. However the stock motherboard has pretty much no control over the fan speeds (no control from BIOS or any...

    Audio Audiophile earphones under 5k

    Thanks. But I already got the Soundmagic E80. It ended up being a VERY good choice. Amazing sound in a small package.

    Audio Audiophile earphones under 5k

    I've come down to the following choices. Soundmagic E80 Audio Technica ATH-CKX9 Other alternatives like the Ostry KC06A and the Hifiman RE-00 don't seem to be easily available in India. I'm almost finalized on the Soundmagic E80. However I would prefer the AT pair because of the earhook...

    VFM computer desk chair

    I'm looking for a standard computer desk chair -- the kind which is black in color and has a netted back. Something you'd find in a Bangalore startup office. I know there are a lot of options out there and some of them are crazy, unreasonably expensive. What are some of the more VFM options?

    Audio What earphone to buy in the 5k range?

    I'm not sure about the audio technica ones, but the Bose ones were very comfortable. I could have them on and watch a two hour movie and not feel even the slightest bit of discomfort.

    Audio What earphone to buy in the 5k range?

    I'm also looking for earphones in the same range. I've been using Bose in-ear headphones for a couple of years. I got it for free from some credit card points. Despite the normal hate against Bose and their general overpricedness and low quality, these headphones were really good and I loved...

    Video Should I buy a 4K TV right now?

    OK guys reviving this old thread. Finally getting around to buying that new TV, and have narrowed down to two models: Sony KDL-55W950B Sony KDL-55W800C Overall I'm leaning towards the 950B because of the apparent better picture quality and the lack of Android (which I don't need). The price...

    Identify This Mystery Rock Song

    I found this really awesome rock song on my hard drive. The filename says "Oasis - Layla" but it's obviously a different song with different lyrics. It isn't even recognized on SoundHound. https://www.dropbox.com/s/px087h0yv10l8ug/Oasis%20-%20Layla.mp3?dl=0 What song could it be?

    Monitors Dell U2410 Color Problem

    Thanks guys. I set it to sRGB mode and after tweaking some settings in AMD CCC it's pretty good now. Never knew about the factory mode. Will try it out.

    Monitors Dell U2410 Color Problem

    All right fellow U2410 owners, can you do a little experiment for me? I've always stuck to sRGB color preset mode despite the dull colors, because it always had minimal eyestrain on me. Then I recently switched to Game mode and Multimedia mode, I was startled at the super-saturated colors on...
