All to correctly power my 32Ω DT880s which I bought by mistake
My Galaxy S5's charging port broke, so I cut the charger in half, cut out the data cables and stripped back the rubber coating on the + and - cables. Everytime I need to charge it I take the + and - wires and put them in my phone between the battery and the battery contacts.
Charges normally but when the wires short a jarring noise comes out of the speaker and i'm afraid to go to sleep/leave the house when it charges. Also, no notifications while charging kinda sucks. I really need to figure out what a new USB port costs.
>>52373131 buy a battery charger and another battery and just swap them periodically. That's what I did before I got my new phone, still do it with my new one because swapping battery is faster than waiting on it to charge
>>52372926 I'd post pics if I was at home, but I stacked some wood on my desk to put my laptop on and put an Intel fan underneath to keep it cool. Could just get a cheap cooler pad but fuck it, that Intel fan blows more air than those cheap coolers anyways and it's pretty silent.
Stopped now but when I used my Xbox one: It only had audio over hdmi or optical Used computer monitor with no speakers Only had computer speakers with normal 3.5mm jack Xbox optical out - > digital to analog converter box - > It's rca out so another converter to make it 3.5mm then yet another to make it female instead of male so I could plug speakers in
Ended up costing like 70 bux at RadioShack so I could have just bought compatible speakers but I'm stubborn I guedd
I actually sort of nigrigged hardware and software in my gaymen laptop. Short greentext >dog pees on my $3000 gaymen laptop while I'm sleeping and laptop is on >wake up 3 hours later to its apparent death >left it drying during the night and it worked again except leds were dead and so the keyboard and touchpad >gpu fan no longer spins if it's not in constant use So what I did was obviously plug an external keyboard and mouse, but the GPU problem was more serious; my solution was to make the X server use it when the graphical interface is running instead of the integrated Intel card. It makes the battery go away like a fucker but at least it werks and doesn't overheats.
I had a bunch of friends with broken iphone 3gs and put them together. Used that phone for years. When I traded it in to best buy to get half off my next phone, they said it was the cleanest one they've seen in awhile. I used the best looking parts...
>>52377359 None My PSU is only 250W, so even if I throw away the fan nothing would happen, but I added a regulator just so that I can control it if the temp rises too much. It's winter right now so temperatures are low as it is, but I might have to rev up the fan speed in summer
>>52373131 I admire your moxie, but for real, if you take your time, the charge port isn't too bad to fix. It's cheap to buy, as are the tools. Just set aside like an hour and read the iFixit guide. No wukkas.

I bought a mic stand but the threading adaptor thing was a little fucking loose so I just taped the shit out of the places where they attach with regular electrical tape and they now screw in snugly If you take it off, the tape is all stripped and fucked though so it's like a one time thing which kinda sucks if you need to remove it or bump it or something

>>52378079 It's connected to a UPS anyway, if it fucks up the UPS will just blow a fuse
I initially tried to run it without the fan, reasoning that the older more powerful adapter for the 360 fat didn't need one. And then the 360 turned off when i had a 400 note streak going on One and i was just getting into my zone and when i touched the PSU it was so hot the plastic case was malleable.
So, yeah. My extremely old custom made USB fan (used for many things in the past, like keeping a PS3 fat from overheating) gains another use. Fucking love this thing.
>>52373020 >running some shit nvidia cards back in the day >the fan dies on one of the cards >no experience with this shit so give it to a friend who says he does this shit all the time and will fix it for free >gives it back to me with a fucking AMD fan in it >the fan blades are angled the opposite direction than they should be with how the radiator was built >didn't even fucking work
>>52373131 Reparing an s5 is Cancer you will most likely break the screen since it is glued so hard. I would not repair anything on that phone which needs the screen to be removed unless you plan to replace it.
My switch. I got it for $8 at a used PC store, pretty good for a gigabit managed switch. The stock fans were 40mm which has a really shitty airflow to annoyance ratio, and they're 5v so that limits my options for replacing them. So I just took the top case off and put a big fan over it. Runs pretty much silent since it's a 12v fan running on 5v.
The switch itself is really weird. The switch chips are Vitesse-made, and the firmware is Vitesse branded. The hardware also supports 2x5Gbit stacking ports. But the switch itself is rebranded by Ruby networks, and the stacking ports aren't actually accessible from the outside. The strange part? The firmware had other switches configured in the stack when I got it.
Not tech but my cars lower control arms are held together by polyurethane(liquid nails)and the steering wheel is not aligned up. I drive 400miles a week to LA every weekend and i give people rides for gas $$.
The breaker switches on my house keep getting flipped and i got tired of going out and flipping it back during the night so i attached a rubber band that flips the breakers back on anytime they are triggered.

>>52377934 Good to see some extrapsubros out and about
I'm running two PSUs on my desktop and I have a HTPC built out of hard rubbish that uses my desktop's speakers over pulseaudio and kodi with a shared MySQL db and drives mounted over sshfs because I'm lazy
>>52379836 Also the HTPC is using two usbs for its boot disk and home partition, I also use steam in home streaming from my vidya pc to play games on my TV, but for some reason my controller disconnects immediately when plugged in to a linux box (only linux problem I've had in 4 years of gentoo and arch on everything) but works fine on wangblows so I run the controller across the room with a couple usb extension cables
Also I use this nigger rigged VR, not daily but it's still pretty disgusting and cringe worthy
>>52380755 Some magnetic field does inevitably slip outside the housing, but it's not powerful enough to damage a HDD. (If fans emitted enough EMI to kill a HDD at 3 feet, then they would've also destroyed all floppy disks in a 50 feet radius)
I have a bent AC adapter and a dead battery on my laptop, I had to tape the adapter in one exact position for the shit to even start. One slight bump and the whole lelptop goes off. Sometimes it dies even while I'm typing vigorously. Wonder how much my SSD suffers from all of this.
>>52380051 ... I just wanted to look cool on /g/, it doesn't actually work... yet
The cable connecting the screen to the controller board was a bit dodgy but I've ordered another one. The tracking works alright though and the screen did seem to look ok. The tracker works well though, it's a spark fun pro micro with a MPU6050 6DOF, I even got it outputting as mouse output so I can play pretty much any game with it, I just use VIREIO to split the output for each eye and I'm good
I plan to purchase a STFM32f4 discovery board because someone has written firmware for that that makes it register as a DK1

>>52373072 Without getting the fan more air tight against the case, its probably better as intake. Plus those fans are designed to just push air as an intake, i doubt that fan has worthwhile suction from behind relative to its size. (For sucking air out)
I find now that my temps are much better with mostly intakes and one exaust (rear), even both top slots were changed to intake recently (inb4 heat rises, i know this) and temps dropped significantly. I think the positive pressure is better, but have dust filters.
>>52372926 I work in a research and development lab, and I feel like pretty much everything is nigrigged. From our prototypes to our hardware to our network configuration.
I was telling a sysadmin friend of mine about something my team nigrigged onto the network, and he didn't believe me because no sane sysadmin would let his users do that. Turns out we don't even have one.
>>52380755 >>52380730 >>52380816 Actually, those kinds of fans are more than enough to slowly start to affect the hard drive over time, when it's at 2 feet or closer.
That, or most of my clients have been lying about how close their fans are to the drives and have actually had it right next to the damned things.
Regardless, as long as you keep the back-end of the fans a reasonable distance from drives, you should be fine. I'd personally feel a little better putting the fan at least 6 more inches away from the case than >>52373020 has placed, the amount of air going in should still be enough.
Only had 2 monitors, one was vga only, the other had vga/dvi. Had my tower, 360, and stb hooked up. Fucking dumbass cable tech told me I wouldn't be able to use the stb with a monitor.
HDMI to dvi to vga for the stb. Then the rca audio to 3.5 headphone jack to the microphone jack on the back of the tower. 360 had to buy the vga adapter which also had rca audio so another 3.5 adapter to the front mic input. Then got the mic inputs to play through shitty USb speakers.
Tower always had a dedicated monitor and the xbox/cable shared one.
