    [SOLVED] Need to enable QuickSync/Export on i8700K + RX 580 + FCPX

    Hi everyone. I recently completed my new build but I can't export h.264 video in Final Cut Pro 10.4 with the igpu disabled.

    Intel Quick Sync????

    I use FCPX a lot and I just came across a post talking about Intel Quick Sync and how it helps with rendering times. How do you check if that is enabled? And how do you enable it if it is disabled? I have a i7-4790K with 4600HD integrated gpu + MSI GTX 960 + GA-Z97N-WIFI and I'm on El Capitan

    Wifi/Bluetooth Card for GA-H170M-D3H???

    Hi, I'm not sure what wifi/bluetooth card to get for the m-ATX Gigabyte GA-H170M-D3H motherboard. I was originally going to get this M.2 card https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00X6J4NBY/?tag=tonymacx86com-20 because I was going to get the m-ITX mobo GA-H170N-WIFI which has the wifi/bluetooth card in...

    H170 mobo with K processor?

    Would an H170 motherboard work with a K processor (that would NOT be overclocked). And vice versa, would a Z170 motherboard work stably with a non-K processor? I'm trying to decide which motherboard to buy. Thinking on possible future uses/upgrades so I want to buy parts that are somewhat...

    Disable internal graphics card?

    Hi, this might be a really dumb question but I wanted to know if there were any potential advantages/drawbacks to disabling the internal graphics HD 4600 that comes with my i7-4790k.

    GTX 960 graphics cards???

    I'm in need of a "blower-style" graphics card because of the cooling methods for my case (this type of card blows all the air out the exhaust in the slots). I don't really need a super powerful graphics card but the cheapest one I could find in the buyer's guide was the EVGA GTX 970. That is a...
