General Discussion / Re: Installing a ssd in xbox one x
« on: 07:17 AM - 07/09/19 »
Hey if anybone has done this could u please tell me 1 what ssd should i get 2 is it worth soing (for pubg) 3 internal vs external . Cheers

1) I have the Samsung T5 https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-T5-Portable-SSD-MU-PA500B/dp/B073GZBT36/ref=sxin_2_ac_d_pm?keywords=samsung+ssd+t5&pd_rd_i=B073GZBT36&pd_rd_r=8f74b81e-01a5-44ab-a88a-9155b2e055c5&pd_rd_w=gwIb0&pd_rd_wg=06Mel&pf_rd_p=64aaff2e-3b89-4fee-a107-2469ecbc5733&pf_rd_r=DBGYDZBMPGJPW7BQX2TC&qid=1562677817&s=gateway. It was beyond worthwhile for games like Destiny 2 and the Division 2. I often find myself annoyed that the location loaded too quick and I didn't have time for snack or bathroom break. I can sometimes get away with switching weapons mid match in Destiny 2 because the weapon screen loads twice as fast. Heck, farming the Managerie has been much more enjoyable because I could load my chalice so quickly.

2) As mentioned above in pvp lobbies (in which the beginning of the game is defined by the slowest load time out of the group) the SSHD won't make much difference here.

3) Also second the external route. If your OCD and despise clutter you might opt the internal route, but if you don't mind the 3.5" x 4" rectangle than save yourself the time and frustration and opt for external.

General Discussion / Re: Corsair K70 LUX on Xim APEX
« on: 09:01 AM - 06/24/19 »
Hey everyone,

Im using the corsair k70 lux on the xim apex and it's working perfectly. The only problem is I can't get my keys to light up. It's fully functional but there is just no lighting. Can anyone help me out with this? I've tried everything and nothings working.

Thank you!

In my opinion, the problem is rather that you do not have sufficient power to the keyboard. XIM apex has an adapter port by which it can distribute further power. Unfortunately, I don't have the specs of the adapter you would need, but if you keep searching on here you will be able to find it.

The fact that the keyboard does not display any light should indicate that isn't able to draw enough power. Even with a device without on-board memory, default lighting patterns are typically displayed.

XIM Link / Re: Function keys to toggle scripts
« on: 06:41 AM - 06/10/19 »
Quick question. Never used/ran scripts before.

Are you able to set the F keys to make (or set?) the scripts to do different things?

Say for instance F1 as a default, F2 for when driving etc.

I'm not quite clear on what exactly you would like to do, but if I am understanding your question then the answer would be yes. I'd need more details if you wanted some help doing it.

I don't see myself ever using this device, however i'm curious as to some of the potential applications. I bet there might be some compatibility hurdles to clear though.                                                                                                                                                      https://www.amazon.com/Steelplay-Drive-Toshiba-DDRET101-Vault-Bundle/dp/B01LXR35VN/ref=pd_bxgy_63_img_2/130-4354354-3902728?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B01LXR35VN&pd_rd_r=0c973ee1-885f-11e9-8b74-75f209b90584&pd_rd_w=sLE3D&pd_rd_wg=Zm7mb&pf_rd_p=a2006322-0bc0-4db9-a08e-d168c18ce6f0&pf_rd_r=56F5S044MD4DKDWWEVAJ&psc=1&refRID=56F5S044MD4DKDWWEVAJ

General Discussion / Re: Gateron Optical Silver Switch?
« on: 06:08 AM - 05/24/19 »
Is this what you’re looking for?


Potentially. The seller does not give enough information. Thanks! I checked epath earlier in the day and they only had Blue, Brown, and Red in stock. 

General Discussion / Gateron Optical Silver Switch?
« on: 11:51 AM - 05/23/19 »
Anybody know of a place that you can purchase Gateron Optical Silver Switches? I have a Gateron Hot-Swap board that I would like to replace some switches on, but I cannot find them anywhere online.

They need to return to Black Ops 1 and 2 level Zombies. Every year after BO2 zombies got more and more complicated.

Hi guys I am very new to this community, I don't want to over complicate anything with any "dpi talk" or lingo I will not understand, I want to take it one step at a time lol I literally am a total noob.

What I would like help with today is Button Layout !!!

I am a long time console gamer (Xbox) I would even go as far to say I am way above average when I comes to FPS games CoD, D2, Apex etc.....however I have recently purchased a Xim Apex and would like take my gaming to the next level.

My setup:

Main game Destiny2

- Xbox one X
- Xim Apex
- Razer Tartarus V2
- SteelSeries 110

I am having a lot of trouble deciding where to map my keys too....like where should I have crouch, sprint, tactical etc.  I know its not going to feel right for a long time and will weeks for fluidity to take hold but the only buttons I have set my mind on is on the scroll wheel for sprint or is there a better way to do this?? I literally have no idea so anyone with a similar setup to me please some tips would be amazing.

First and foremost go through the YouTube tutorials. Then go here https://community.xim.tech/index.php?topic=56658.msg626940#msg626940.

I play D2 exculsively. It is important to know that it will take time for you to fine tune your settings. Settings are different for everyone. It will take a while for you to get used to your keybinds. You'll even have to play around with your keybinds for a while. Stick with it and you won't regret it.

XIM Link / Re: Mic Passthrough with XIM Link
« on: 01:51 PM - 05/06/19 »
Yes this works. It's not XIM LINK transferring your microphone through. It is your computer sending the audio signal to your xbox controller and then to your XBOX.

What I do:

(after plugging in and installing my usb microphone)

Run a 3.5 mm (male to male) aux chord from my computer directly to the controller. You will need a CTIA splitter. Here is what I use https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B071DMCZQF/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1. It is important that you get a splitter with 3 bands on the male port.  2 stereo audio and the 3rd is for the microphone.

Plug the male end into you xbox controller. The aux chord coming from your pc will plug into the pink female port marked "mic" and the headset will plug into the green female port marked "Headphones".

You will have to make sure and set the microphone to the default microphone device in the sound settings. Also you want to make sure that sound playback is set to speakers. This means that any noise coming from the computer will be played over your pc speakers and because you have the aux signal out running to your XBOX you will have the microphone sound sent to your XBOX.

There is one other important point to make. You may need to get a ground noise loop isolator like this https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B019393MV2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1. You would need to install this between the aux chord coming from the pc and the CTIA splitter. Without this device I had a buzzing feedback that made the microphone unusable.

Xbox is a pain in the butt, because they do not allow for USB microphones. In this case you're basically using your PC to route the audio into the only mode XBOX natively allows it to be received - the 3.5mm input.

Let me know if this helps or if you need any specific clarification on the setup.

I forgot to update this thread. The ground loop Isolator worked like a champ  8)

Just a queston out of curiosity, the guys who have a pc and console, do you have to unplug everytime your K+M from one to plug into the other one?

Not if you use XIM Link

Hardware Compatbility / Re: K&M Recommendations
« on: 06:44 AM - 05/02/19 »
Looking into getting a new xim apex soon and was also going to be getting a new K&M with it. Was wandering if anyone has any recommendations for ones that will be guaranteed to work with it and be 60$ or less in cost. Mostly play FPS/TPS shooters not sure if that will aid or help with mouse recommendations but wanted to toss it out there. Thanks to all who take time to read and reply.

$60.00 will be a tight budget but you can pull it off. The mouse is the most important part. If you have a keyboard laying around that will work with your XIM, you're better off just using that until you can get a better keyboard.

Mouse advice : Logitech G502, G203, G403.

Keyboard advice: Playstation Nav. If you live in the US and/or have a local gamestop then see if they have any in stock. They cost a wopping $1.99 and work with PS or XBOX One. https://www.gamestop.com/PickUpAtStore/78145/0/900010

The nav will help you adjust to the XIM, by allowing you to use an analog input i.e. joystick, as your mode of movement. However if you're already familiar with keyboarding than this doesn't necessarily ring true.

Hardware Compatbility / Re: Razer Tartarus Upgrade.
« on: 06:27 AM - 05/02/19 »
Been using Razer Tartarus V2 for 2 yrs now, want to upgrade to a mechanical keyboards..
What benefits and is it a must to upgrade to mechanical?

Not a must, but it is certainly an upgrade. Research switch types before you buy a mechanical keyboard. There are dozens and finding the right one for you will maximize your use out of the board. You could upgrade straight to the Orbweaver, since you've already been using it's younger brother. Orbweaver comes in Razer Green (Cherry MX Blue Equivalent) or Razer Orange (Cherry MX Brown Equilvalent). I would advise taking a trip to Best Buy, or some place similar, so you can test out the different switch types. Cherry MX Speed Sillver are by far my favorite switch.

Good luck.


Looks purple Fox!

It was complete happenstance that all chroma was purple at the moment I snapped the photo! All devices are set to cycle spectrum colors  ;D (minus the macro keys, Space, F9-F12, and qweasd keys).


My setup as of now. It's very basic but I'm about to do some upgrading. I thought this would be a perfect time to post since everything is about to change.
