@mikemcn: Yeah ever since they pushed the larger update that changed the UI a little bit it's been sort of janky. Hopefully they get that stuff ironed out soon.

@stevland: I had an issue with this last week where when I downloaded the podcast it turned into it being 24 hours long, and all weird noises. Happened again this week, so I unsubbed from the podcast and resubbed and it is working fine so far.

Edit: I'm on the iOS app.

I manually added the beta app, and the videos now play normally, but I'm getting audio issues - sounds like the mics are blowing out/warbling. It's happened on every video I've tried, but very noticeable on Beast In The East. I tested the most recent VRodeo on the GB roku app and it had the issue, whereas the youtube app on roku had no problems.

Anybody else having this issue?

@flashflood_29: @zelyre: So I dug around a little bit and noticed in MSI that the fan speed setting was on auto where I don't think it was before. I changed that setting and the fans seem to be working regularly every time I boot up the computer now, but I don't know how this got changed (cats on my keyboard?). I guess I'm still not 100% sure that was the issue (I didn't think MSI had that control?), but I didn't see any issues anywhere else. The last change I made to the computer were installing these fans.

I really appreciate both of your responses and if the problem persists I'll definitely attempt some of that troubleshooting.

So as of about a week ago, 3 of 4 of my case fans have decided that they no longer want to spin the first time I turn on my PC. Initially, the fans spin about half of a rotation before they shut off. Once I turn the computer off and turn it back on a second time all of the fans power correctly and I don't have any issues. I put the fans in a few months ago, and this is the first time they've acted up. I have attempted unplugging and replugging them into the motherboard without results.

Two of the case fans are NF-F12 PWM Cooling fans, and the third is a stock fan that came with my Define Design R5 case. The rest of my specs (if this helps at all) are as follows:

  • Corsair RM 650W Power Supply
  • Gigabyte G1 Gaming GA-Z170X Gaming 5 Motherboard
  • Intel Core I5 6600k 3.5ghz CPU
  • Cooler Master Hyper 212 CPU Cooler
  • G.Skill Ram (x2 8gb)
  • GTX 1070 ASUS Graphics Card

This is my first ever PC build and I'm not the most knowledgeable, so any help would be greatly appreciated!

@sloppydetective: I know exactly what you mean and was in the same boat. I ended up having my engineer friend help me build one in July, and found out that it really isn't quite as difficult as I previously thought. Granted, building the PC was mostly me watching him do it and asking a lot of questions, but if I had to do it on my own I definitely could have it just would have taken about three times as long with a lot more manual reading. I've learned quite a bit of just general PC maintinence from basically nothing before (I even installed extra fans myself!) and haven't had a ton of issues troubleshooting game settings.

I decided to take the plunge due to the scorpio/neo rumors and decided I didn't want to upgrade so soon again and wanted to aim for longevity. Play Anywhere was also a huge factor in that decision. I'd say go for it, especially if you've got someone to help you out, because it really isn't quite as daunting as it seems (I know everyone says that).

@artisanbreads: Yeah, you're definitely right I didn't really think about that I should probably change it. It was originally this, which when contained in the box the space isn't quite as noticeable but I ended up liking it without the box better

Got bored today so I figured I'd open up Illustrator and make a simple logo. It's nothing special but I really just wanted to crack open a tall, cold bottle of MURDER:

What does everybody think? I have ideas for a couple of variations that I may get around to later also.

Just recently started playing, and I noticed that the top and bottom portions of the screen are being cut off of my screen. For example, the top portion of the health and experience bars are not visible on screen, and during the tutorial the text that pops up on the bottom of the screen was also cut off.

Anybody else have this issue or any idea how to fix it?
