    My XPS 13 is 4K, but I ended up running 1080p because of scaling issues...

    I thought the solution would be, "upgrade to a 4k monitor" :haha:

    It's pretty awesome!

    I can play with it tethered to the PC or completely wireless.

    It's the Thronmax MDrill One Pro (Thronmax MDrill One Pro Review). Much cheaper compared to a Blue Yeti.

    Time to add more RAM to my old i7-7700K.

    Won't POST when paired with existing RAMs. I thought it was a timing issue. I have existing Ballastix Sport LT 2400 which were discontinued.

    Ran these alone, PC will POST but getting graphic glitches and BSODs.

    One of the stick is faulty.

    My luck with electronics is bad these days.

    Corsiar LPX definitely have better built quality compared to the discontinued Crucial Ballastix Sport LT (heat sink isn't flush with chips and PCB breakoff points aren't clean requiring some force or some sanding)[​IMG]

    I got a new router / firewall

    It's a mini PC from Protectli - FW4B

    It has a quad core Celeron 1.6GHz (J3160), 8GB DDR3L, a 120GB Kingston UV500 SSD and 4 port Intel Gigabit NIC.

    It's running Coreboot (open source BIOS), and OPNsense - a FreeBSD based open source firewall and routing software.



    I was looking to upgrade my Netgear router and saw how expensive the Nighthawks were. I had been wanting a bit more control on the security side but also something that can handle the routing requirements of a household full of devices and when Comcast comes to fix my line, gigabit internet.

    I have a firewall that drops packets based off a list from Spamhaus, and have set up a IDP / IDS setup based off of Suricata that both takes a daily refreshed list of trackers and blacklists (from abuse.ch for the latter).

    I'll probably setup a AV service that will scan incoming traffic too (for email attachments) since parents tend to click on things)

    Next up will be a WiFi 6 mesh AP set up of some sort (project for July)

    I have the same series, but it was individual packed 8GB 3200MHz model. 2 of them work well for me.
