Aorus KD25F Gaming Monitor – Cheating Stream Snipers Paradise

Hi Guys and welcome to 123, in this video I will show you how to an unboxing and first look at the Aorus KD25F Gaming Monitor.

Check out the KD25F on Amazon here 👉 https://amzn.to/2Pd7K2F

The Aorus KD25F is a 24.5 inch 240hz Gaming monitor with a 0.5ms response time. Its also  Gsync and Free sync compatible. The KD25F retails for around $400 usd and $750 aussie at the time of this video. Other features include LED Fusion lighting, Aim Stablizer and what I consider the best feature of them all OSD SideKick. Lets take a look what you get inside the box.

You get three different power plugs. So it looks to be a Chinese power plug, an Australian New Zealand power plug and a US power plug. Next we have display port 1.2 and a HDMI 2.0 cable. Its nice that you get one of each. In some monitors you will only receive one cable. And last up we have a USB 3.0 cable which powers the USB hub and OSD SideKick software.

A monitor in this price range should come with a really good stand. And the Aorus KD25F monitor doesn’t disappoint with a really solid base to the stand. More about this later in the video. Its looks a bit like a boomerang.

Next up is the arm that connects to the monitor to the base. Taking the monitor out of the box you can see it has a Energy rating of 4 stars and while on the Gigabyte website it says it uses 60 watts on average it uses about 21 watts. Which is actually pretty good for a gaming monitor.

Also in the box you get the installation guide and warranty card.

The Stand

The stand is solid as and the arm and base just slot it together. After this just tighten the screw on the base. On the back of the monitor you have a power plug with an on off switch and a Kensington lock.  You also have a toggle switch to navigate the monitor OSD which is really helpful when navigating the menus. Above that Audio and Microphone jacks. Two HDMI posts, one Display Port port! USB 3 in port and two USB 3 out ports.

On the back of the monitor itself you will find 4 screws which means the monitor has VESA wall mounting support. Helpful if you want to change stands. The stand snaps into place nicely and there is a quality feel to it. There was talk on the internet about the stand being flimsy and wolling allot and it does move when I shake like this. However after testing the monitor for about a week I didn’t find it to be an issue at all.

Once setup the monitor take up about 21 cms of desk space. This means if you have a small desk it like I do. It will sit off the wall about 21 cms. Its not a deal breaker but just something to be aware of.

Rotate the Stand

The stand not only looks great but it allow you to ajust the height. Also the pivot the monitor 90 degrees. Tilts up and down. And it can swivel 20 degrees side to side.

Aorus KD25F Monitor
Wings of excellence design

The stand has the Aorus Wings of Excellence design which looks cool. But in my opinion it lacks functionality. You can change the colour of the LEDS on the back of the Aorus KD25F monitor and the stand however they are very bright and most of the time you wont see them so they are a complete waste of time. If they were brighter you could shine them on a wall behind the monitor like I have done with my LEDs and it would make for an excellent gaming experience. The stand also has a nice built in handle, which is handy if you need to carry it.

Iam going to spend a bit of time going through the OSD SideKick because I think its really cool.

AORUS OSD Side Kick
OSD Side Kick Software – Allows greater control of Monitor settings.

OSD Side Kick – Best Feature !

The OSD sidekick software allows you to control the settings of you monitor with your mouse. You need to plug the USB into your computer for it to work but it has some great features.

The first thing you will notice the Aorus KD25F monitor is really bright, to the point of where its hard to look at. So in the OSD there is a set of seven profiles. Each of these profiles give you different settings such as Brightness, Contrast, Sharpness, Black Equalizer, Colour Vibrance, Low Blue Light and super resolution. This means you can set a really bright profile for gaming and then another low light profile for browsing the internet or working. Then you can bind these profiles to a Hot Key so you can change them on the fly. Here you can see change a few settings within the Aorus profile.

Next up we have the Gamma setting which you can change as well as the colour temperature. However, the one I want to talk about most if the Overdrive setting. The Overdrive setting controls the response time of your monitor, which is very important for RTS and First Person shooter games. You have three settings Quality, Balanced and Speed. Quality is over drive turn off and it’s the slowest setting. It has an average Gray to Gray of 5.5 ms and no overshoot. The Balanced setting has a faster response time of 3.1 ms Gray to Gray and still no overshoot so this is a great setting to use for that balance between speed and quality. Speed mode is the fastest with an average of 1.5 ms gray to gray. However you will start to see some overshoot errors and ghosting with this mode.

Ok so the next setting is Aim Stabilizer, this reduced the motion blur in fast moving games. However you cant use this feature with the FreeSync function enabled. And to be honest I couldn’t see any difference with this on.

FreeSync and G Sync

Turning on the FreeSync option will turn FreeSync or G Sync on depending on if you have AMD or NVidia graphics card. When this option is turned on it eliminates screen lag and tearing whilc playing games.

The Cross Hair option is borderline cheating. Turning this on will allow you to paint anything in the middle of the screen. So if I click on the edit button and paint a crosshair or anything else this gives an advantage over other players for sure. I was surprised how easy it was to make good Crosshairs.

PIP and PBP. This setting allows you to create a picture inside your picture or make two pictures beside each other. Lets take a look. As you can see here I now have my laptop and monitor computer screen side by side. Now the settings is picture in picture and I can change the size and the location of the picture. You can also swap your pictures around and bring the small picture to the front and large picture to the back.

Cheating Possible with the Aorus KD25F Monitor

I racked my brain thinking how this technology could be used and then it hit me. If you are a stream sniper you could use this to follow someone’s stream at play your own game. Then I realised you could watch a team mates stream and you might be able to see what enemy players are. It would be delayed slightly but still helpful!!! Again great from cheating. J

Dashboard is pretty cool. Lets say you want to keep an eye on the temperature of your CPU or GPU you can do it through the dashboard. It makes a little display which you can make it see through so it doesn’t get in the way. It’s a nice feature. Just turn off what you don’t need. For me the CPU and GPU temps were pretty helpful.

Cancel Noise

You can turn the LED indicator on and off on the monitor. Not a big deal, but I also wanted to show you that there is a mic pin hole just above it which works with the noise cancelling feature.

There is also a noise cancelling feature which people on the internet said it would be good for when you take your computer to a lan party. But I was thinking it would probably be best for those of us who intend on getting on discord with loud clacky keys. Hopefully this feature would filter out allot of that background noise.

Here is some footage of the Crosshairs in action! I will be selling the 123 crosshair on my website. Just kidding J And here is the default crosshair. Its pretty good.

Media PC Build – The Witcher

The Witcher 3 PC Build.

If you did not know already, The Witcher is Netflix series, which is due to be released on the 20th of December. Before that, it was a series of books written by Andrzej Sapkowski. In 2015, The Witcher 3 game was released and it won numerous Game of the year awards. This was one game that I felt like I missed out on playing, so when I found out that the Witcher 3 supports XBOX controller on the PC. I decided to build a media pc complete with an XBOX controller.

In this build, I repurpose an OLD HP Z800 which featured in a Cryptocurrency CPU build I did. And I will be reusing an RX 570 card which I used in the Kraken mining rig build. I will put a link to that video as well.

All right let get started.

If we take, a look at the specs needed to run the Witcher in the z800 we have 12 GB of ram and duel Xeon X5660s which is more than enough and adding the rx570 should give us a great result for a media pc build.

Media PC Build
AMD RX 570 GPU install.

First up let’s remove the Nvidia Quadro 4000 card. Remove the 6 pin power plug first. You might have noticed I did not use the GPU clip, which unlocks the card from the motherboard. That is because I’ve modified the clip and when I say modified I really mean I broke it. I did this because I found the clip annoying when adding and removing cards.

Install the GPU RX 570

Let’s remove the Sapphire RX 570 from the Kraken mining rig by removing the 8 pin power cable. As well as removing the PCIE connector from the bottom. The Sapphire RX 570 cards are great for mining and gaming and heres why. They have a dual bios switch, which means you can have one bios for Mining and one bios for Gaming. So I just switch the bios switch over and start gaming with it. I do not have to flash the bios or anything messy like that.

As you can see she’s a bit dirty, so let’s give her a quick clean up before we move her into the case.

Alright let’s add the GPU to the case. Pretty straight forward. Just add the card in the same spot we removed the Quadro 4000 card from.

The Z800 only comes with 6 pin power connectors. So we need to add a 6 pin to 8 pin power connector. You can get these cheap online.

Make it power efficient as possible.

I am going to remove the SATA hard drives and replace them with a faster SSD. You could keep these in if you wanted extra storage for games or movies, but I do not need it and they will just waste power being plugged in.

The SSD I am going with is a Kingston brand and I could slot it into the same spot as the SATA hard drive, however it will not have any support there so I am going to gerry rig it inside the case.

Add in a new SATA cable and give it some power. And then I just find a spot to wedge it in the drive bay area and it’s good to go. Plug the SSD into the motherboard on bay 0. Remove the power from the DVD drive since I am not going to be using that.

Close the case and hopefully we are done on the inside of the build. Next up plug in power keyboard and mouse into the media pc build.

Install Windows 10

To install Windows 10 I’ve got an installer copy on this Seagate USB hard drive. Newer USBs do not seem to detect properly on this older computer. Do not forget our HDMI cable for our monitor. To boot into bios or boot menu. On your keyboard you might have tap F2 Delete or in this case of the Z800 you press F9. Once you are in the boot menu select the USB device. Then go ahead and install Windows. When windows finishes installing remove your USB hard drive.

Check that your RX 570 card is correctly installed. This is important if they were used for Cryptocurrency as they will show up with a yellow exclamation mark next to them and your game will be slow or not even load. Make sure your driver date is on the money as you can see here mine is recent so we are good to go. This next addition is what will really make the build shine. We are going to add in the XBOX controller. The Beauty of the XBOX controller is when family or friends come over to your house and they are a bit bored, you throw them an XBOX controller and they are instantly entertained.

XBOX Controller working?

All right plug in your XBOX USB and let it detect in Windows. Go ahead and pair your controller it, the USB should flash when successful.

The Witcher build going live!

Ok so I have connected the Z800 to my LG TV and I’ve got my XBOX controller ready to go for the media pc build. But I feel like there is something missing. I still feel like there is something missing. How about LEDS? That is better!

Cool, let’s fix up the TV settings. On the LG TV I have this button called Q menu and it allows me to choose a few different TV options such as Gaming and Cinema. What I noticed is the picture on Cinema was far superior to Gaming. Because I am not playing the game competitively, I am just going for the best picture and man it really made a difference. Take a look.

I decided to leave it on Cinema. A quick check to see how many frames the RX 570 is giving me and as you can see here, it is a solid 60 frames. Its a great result. I tested this on my 120 hertz monitor. I set the game to unlimited so I am sure it is higher than this but maybe it is a limitation of the TV.

Let check out some gameplay!

10 iPhone settings that you should turn off straight away

10 iPhone settings that you don’t need. Time to turn them off.

Hi guys and welcome to 123, this video I will show you ten iPhone settings that you should turn off straight away. Ok guys these settings I am about to show you will do two things save battery life and save you mobile data. So let us get started.

iPhone Analytics

  1. The first one you should turn off is iPhone analytics. IPhone Analytics sends data to Apple and could be a privacy issue as well. They use these analytics to see how you use your phone so they can improve their services. It also drains your battery life. So to turn it off go into Settings > Privacy > Analytics. Just toggle the button at the top. If you have an Apple watch, it will also turn off the analytics for your Apple watch. Again, this will give you more battery life on your Apple watch as well.

iCloud Analytics

  1. In addition, while you are in there turn off iCloud analytics, which is the same thing as iPhone Analytics accept for iCloud.
  2. Turn off Improve Siri & Dictation. This setting allows Apple to store and review the Audio from your Siri interactions. For me no thanks I want to keep that private.

Significant Locations

  • Next up turn off Significant Locations. Significant location tracks everywhere you go this also means it uses your GPS everywhere you go. This allows Apple to deliver targeted advertising to your phone.  To turn this off go to Settings > Privacy> Location services > you can toggle it off at the top. Otherwise if you want to see where you have been go to System Services > Significant Locations. You can turn it off in here plus see where you have been and clear history.
iPhone settings
System Services – Turn off services that you are not using.

System Services

  • Turn off everything in System services that are unnecessary. Turn off everything apart from Emergency calls and SOS, find my iPhone and share my location if you use that feature. If suddenly, something does not work come back in here and double check. Otherwise, turn them off. It will save you battery life and data.
  • While you are in there turn off everything in Product improvement. This allows Apple to use your location to improve maps. Just turn it off.

Limit Ad Tracking

  • Next, up you want turn on Limit Ad Tracking. This is one where the naming might be confusing. If you do not have this on then you are being tracked when you go to websites so that advertisers can advertise to you.  Turn this on under Privacy and Advertising. If you want to see information that is being used by Apple, tap the View Ad Information menu. Hit the Reset Advertising Identifier button and then toggle Limit Ad Tracking on.

Email accounts

  • Set your email accounts to fetch instead of Push. What this does is it only goes and gets your email when you open your email to look. Rather than wasting battery, life constantly checking for new email. You can also select how often you want to fetch your mail. Every 15 minutes might be suitable. Just remember the longer you leave this the better your battery life will be.
  • Turn off background app refresh. You can find this under iPhone Settings, General. This allows apps to download data in the background even where you are not using them. Turn these off for anything you are not using.
  • Raise to wake. Turn off save battery life. What this does is when your iPhone screen is blank it turns on when you raise it.

Forgotten Passcode on iPad?

Ok guys so have completely forgotten your passcode and you need to remove it from your device. How painful it can be to have Forgotten Passcode on iPad, iPhone or iPod? Apple recommends two ways to remove your passcode. However, this will erase any data on your iPad, iPhone or iPod so I recommend trying to remember you passcode first. Because If you have backed up your device via iCloud or iTunes then you will be able to restore your data and settings after restoring your device.

Check iCloud first

Alright the first way to remove the passcode is if you have added your iPad, iPhone or iPod to iCloud backup and find my iPhone. Once you are on the iCloud.com page login with your Apple ID.

And then click on find iPhone. Click on All devices at the top and you should see your iPad, iPhone or iPod that you want to restore. If you don’t see your device there then you will have to fast forward the video to the second option of restoring your device.

Forgotten Passcode on iPad
Erase your device with iCloud if you have it added to iCloud.

Here I have my iPhone 11 Pro and I will click Erase iPhone. This will restore your iPad, iPhone or IPod back to factory defaults. But remember that this will also erase any data on the device so be sure you want to do this. Next up enter your Apple ID and password and enter your secret questions. On the Erase iPhone menu click Next and then Done. And you will a message that states your erase has started.

Setup your device as new

Ok go a head now and start setting up your device again from scratch. Your passcode will be gone now. If your get activation lock you can enter your Apple ID or click the remove from account button in iCloud then go back on your device and the activation lock won’t come up once you have removed the account from iCloud. If you cant get past activation lock. You will need to take your device to Apple with proof of purchase. Follow the prompts to setup your iPad, iPhone or iPod. Your Passcode is now gone.

And there you have it you have removed you passcode.

If you haven’t Added your iPad, iPhone or iPod to iCloud then you will need to restore your device via iTunes. So you will need a computer with iTunes.

Recovery Mode

You will need to put your device into recovery mode and here’s how to do it for the different models. So for my iPhone 11 I just hold down the side button and plug it into my computer. Once done correctly you should see the restore screen.

But on your computer you iTunes should come up with a restore option. Click Restore and then Restore and update. Click next on software update.

In the top right hand corner of iTunes you should see the software start to download the new iOS for your iPad, iPhone or iPod. If you are using Mac OS Catalina the process is the same.  Click on Go and then computer.  Find your iPad, iPhone or iPod. Click ok and then hit restore. Again click restore and update. Click Next and Agree and your software will start to download.

Slow Internet?

If you are on a slow internet connection, your device might restart itself and you will have to put it back in Restore mode again. So once the download has finished it will extract and start to restore your iPad, iPhone or iPod.

You should now see a message that your device has been restored. However your device will restart itself and your passcode will be gone. Just go ahead and setup your device again. Congratulations you now have removed your passcode.

Gaming PC Setup – Turn Off Turbo Boost to Fix Lag

Turning off Turbo Boost can fix lag in Games.

Hi Guys and welcome to 123, in this video I will show you how to turn off Turbo Boost in the bios.Ok guys about 2 years ago I made a video on how I fixed CPU Game Lag by turning off Turbo boost on a laptop with software. And you can find that video here.

A few of you guys are still having issues, mostly on laptops where your CPU heats up and it start to throttle down to stop itself from over heating.

What you can do is turn off Turbo Boost and this will reduce heat of your CPU, stop the CPU from throtling back and then this should stop your Game from lagging.
On my ASUS laptop the software helped me and allot, but some users couldnt use the software because their CPU wasnt supported. This video should help resolve that issue. Lets get started.

CPU Check – turn off turbo boost

Ok so the first thing to do is check your CPU. We can do this by right clicking the Taskbar and going to Task manager. Once in there if you click on More Details and click the performance tab.
Click and highlight CPU and take note of your CPU speed and base speed. As you can see my base speed is 3.6GHz and my actual speed is 4.00GHz. This means I am getting Turbo Boosted from 3.6GHz to 4GHz. So turning this off should drop my speed back to 3.6GHz.

Check CPU - turn off turbo boost
Check your CPU performance first so you can check the bios change.

I know what you are thinking, hey but wont that reduce the computer speed. Kind of yes, but it will reduce heat and may fix your lag. Plus you can turn this back on at anytime. Before I show you how to turn it off, let start up your game that you are having problems with and check what your CPU is doing. In my case its PUBG.

Alright start your game up and press Alt Tab to show your Task Manager and you should see some more activity on your CPU now. For me you can see that it doesnt really go past halfway and actually most of the work is being done by the NVidia GPU which is sitting on 98%. This is a good sign that Turning off Turbo Boost shouldnt effect the game play.

Enter Bios

Ok Restart your PC and tap your bios key to get into bios. For my ASUS mother board the bios button is Delete. However on different brands it could be Escape, F1 or F2 or something different. On some motherboards its F10 if you cant work it out check the manufactures website.

Once you are in your bios it should look something like this. You will need to find your CPU menu. For me its in advanced mode.
Click the Advanced tab and then click the CPU Configuration menu.

Scroll down to and find CPU power management control. You can see that Turbo Mode is Enabled. Just set this to disabled and press F10 to save changes. These steps should be simular for other brands of motherboards.

Test your settings change

Awesome you have made it this far restart windows and go back into Task Manager. Excellent you can see that the CPU speed has dropped down from 4GHz to 3.4GHz. This means that the bios change worked. Start your game back up and test and see if you are still getting the throttling game lag. If this doesnt help you can just go back into the bios and turn Speed boost back on.

Also guys don’t forget to check out my other Gaming PC Setup videos like Nvidia Control Panel. And do me a favor hit the Subscribe button and smash the bell icon.
