You Can Now Earn Stars By Watching RapidTech On Facebook

I've been streaming for a good while on Twitch. I love gaming. I've been playing video games since I was a kid. I love the tech and the community. Now, I'm bringing streaming to the RapidTech Facebook page: 

With your support through the years RapidTech is now a member of the Level Up Program. This gives me access to more features and now I can accept Stars during stream.

Stars are a form of currency that can be purchased and donated during a live stream. However, you don't have to purchase Stars unless you want to. You can also earn them by going to a live stream and watching. You may be given stars without having to purchase them while watching and supporting your favorite streamer. 

Any Stars that are donated will go towards expenses for Free Tune Up Saturday where I'll give free computer tune ups on the third Saturday of every month. Details still need to be ironed out. So, look out for a future post for more details about Free Tune Up Saturdays.

But, it's not all about Stars, gaming, and computer service when I stream. My main goal while streaming is to reach out and chat. Come by and say hi. Tell me how your day is going. That's what I love about streaming.

If you don't want to purchase Stars but still want to help, I got you. The RapidTech Patreon page is live and updated. Starting at only $2 a month you can support the Facebook Live Stream and RapidTech Podcast. You'll also find great pledge tiers where I offer unlimited computer service for a low monthly pledge. Go to the RapidTech Patreon page for more info:

Custom Rebuild/Upgrade for CTM Productions

I was contacted by Carlos of CTM Productions recently for a custom PC build. He emailed me the specs of his current PC and the hardware requirements for the software he uses. Being honest, I responded back that he doesn't need a full build. It was the built-in video that was bottle necking the whole computer. A few upgrades would get him up and going. He already had a strong motherboard that could take more high performance parts.

Editing and producing 4K video is the main purpose of the PC. So, an 8 core CPU, a high performance video card, and a stronger power supply would do the trick. After some consulting on parts and pricing, parts were ordered. The project took a few hours as soon as the parts were in. The end result is a quiet, powerful computer that runs smooth. The Gigabyte video card installed is capable of 8K video in the future.

Upgrading this PC was fun. His files and programs were undisturbed since a Windows re-installation wasn't necessary. 

If you are interested in a custom PC build or hardware upgrade, contact me. I'm always happy to answer your questions and provide the best one on one customer service experience.
