I built my first rig, bought an i5 4690 (non K) and a Hyper 212 EVO, right now I have one fan on it blowing air towards the back (exhaust) of the case. My temperatures reach 60C on max load which is well under the limit for the CPU but cooler is better and I recently bought a fan controller and already have more than enough spare 120 mm fans hanging around so I want to make use of my new toys.

What I'm wondering is seeing as how I have to manually control the fan myself (with the controller), what speed should I set the "pull" fan so that it doesn't encumber the fan already pushing? I can't imagine it would be good to have a second fan on there that doesn't spin fast enough and ends up stopping air from being pushed out.

Why are people so bothered by applications with "botnet" features? (Using the current /g/ definition of the term, not the actual one.)

I can understand if your privacy was being violated or if it hindered your experience in some way, but for example I saw people losing their shit about some Nintendo patent to use some distributed cloud computing scheme to make games run faster on a gaming console, as if this was some heinous crime. Where's the sense in that? Something I'm missing here, or is it just people trying too hard to apply memes every chance they get?

Sounds like it's forcing the whole system to wait on the I/O with your CD drive. Maybe some developer did this intentionally as some kind of security measure or something, I don't know. Try using a different app to play the CD if you can, might make a difference.

hi, /g/, the other day, the mouse that came with the living room computer died after a good 7 years of service. So I bought an ots mouse, thinking that there would be no problems left after that. However, now it won't work either. I've tried the mouse on other computers with no issue, and am now just cycling through resets by manually updating drivers through the device manager. Annoyingly enough, my logitech g700s works perfectly fine on the living room pc, but it's the only mouse I have for myself.

I'm using windows 10 on a very old lenovo tower.

not even going to look at your shit but just know this - for laptop chargers, the amperage has to be equal to or greater than the recommended value, and the voltage has to be exactly the same, even half a volt off runs the risk of fucking your battery or motherboard
>>
>>52239075
I might beef the cpu up a bit, not too sure, but the gpu is definitely fine
>>
>>52238989

Yes, basically it goes like this:

Voltage x Amperage = Wattage

Available Wattage > Required Wattage = Good to go

Available Wattage < Required Wattage = Won't power up, can fuck up older batts.

Line Voltage =! Required Voltage = SHIT GETS FUCKED UP

I think 4170s are going cheap-ish just now so see if you can bump it up to that for a little extra clock speed. The difference from 3.4 to 3.7 isn't huge though.

It doesn't matter if you torrent it or do via DDL. It's important that the file's legit and you can achieve that by comparing the checksum of the iso with the one on MS's page.

I'm not even going to throw an autistic fit over this.

Build, you can upgrade later. If you're planning to upgrade though you might want to get a beefier PSU. 550Ws shouldn't be that far away and will run a long way if you're not overclocking.

Also, why are you wasting $20 on a cooler for an i3? intel's stock is not *that* noisy and you definitely don't need extra cooling solutions for that CPU.

Most CPUs come with a stock cooler, save yourself the $20.

Do you plan to use that optical drive? you can drop it and spend the $35 you just saved on a better PSU that, with a little luck, will last you many builds.

I was playing with gparted and bcd editing in windows just to learn how it works and ran into a problem. Heres what I did.

-Installed W7 64 bits on a clean disk, then resized the main partition.
-Installed W7 32 bits on some of the remaining adjacent space.
-From the 64bit and first OS I installed EasyBCD, moved the boot manager and bcd list from both OSes to the current main partition C: and marked it as active, making it the new system partition, after this I deleted the remaining and now useless System Reserved 100mb partition.
-I rebooted and both OSes booted fine.
-I booted ubuntu from a live usb and with gparted resized the partition next to the initial free space containing the 64 bit OS and both OSes boot files so it occupied the free space before it.

Now, I tried booting again and for some reason the 32 bit OS installed on the unedited and now 2nd partition booted fine but the first 64 bit one with the edited partition wont boot.

My question is how comes the 2nd OS loads fine but the first doesnt? Boot files are where they should be and the mbr record appears to be pointing to the correct place seeing as I can boot the 2nd OS, just not the first.

I could just try running a startup repair and get it working but id like some insight on why that happened. I read many pages about the windows boot process and there shouldnt be a reason for one os booting but not the other, if both crapped Id think its a corrupt mbr but it seems it isnt. Or is it that windows has some sort of hash/check of its current partition and refuses to work by simply modifying it?

I was doing some casual benchmarking a few minutes ago when, after about half an hour of computing, I started to smell a thin yet distinctive smell of something burning.

I recently bought a brand new Radeon R9 290 (an upgrade from a dinky GTX 650 ti) and I'm getting these weird vertical/horizontal lines on random occasions, but only when I've either been gaming or watching youtube, strangely enough. The audio will either continue to play or stutter, but It's basically forcing me to hard restart (except for one time I had a youtube video playing, the screen appeared, I think I hit backspace on my keyboard and suddenly it started working again once the browser's page refereshed.

The weird part is, I've played only 10 minutes before it happened, or sometimes I manage several hours straight.

I tested my memory, just bought a new 750w PSU, and I even tried rolling back my display drivers.

Anyone have any ideas? I'm stumped and I only know just enough to be clueless when shit hits the fan.

Yea, I figured. It's probably my RAM then, I've been having a bit of trouble with that. I had to turn the paging file off to avoid a bluescreen and the crash only ever occurs when I'm playing Dota 2 which puts my RAM at like 3.6 gb / 4 gb with no paging file
I'm also fairly sure it isn't overheating, it might have been before when it peaked at 82c but I fixed things so it now only peaks at 75c

also, it's not like it just restarts: it crashes completely, as if it got power cut, and then starts back up

Hey /sqt/ need some programming advice.

I'm porting my anime manager to Emacs. The thing is, Emacs doesn't seem to have any good SQLite bindings. The main problem with this means no prepared statements, meaning I need to do string sanitizing by hand. I'm trying to figure out the right approach to this.

1. Pipe input directly to SQLite subprocess. Need to sanitize strings by hand.
2. Use a foreign function interface to call SQLite's C bindings. Adds two extra dependencies and potentially unstable and unfun FFI play.
3. Outsource everything outright to a Python server process. The Emacs part basically becomes a super thin client that proxies input and output to/from the server process. Needs the server program as an extra dependency.

I got my first dmca for a porn of all things (torrent, public tracker). Not a warning from my isp about p2p but an actual warning because of a dmca by the porn group or their contacted lawyers or whatever.

How do they know? Do they join the seed pool and just issue dmca to anyone they find in there?

What should I do to protect myself now that they've warned me?

For the future I'll just stick to private trackers because now I just feel paranoid
>>
>>52243911
technically you can't trademark porn, you're fine. There's nothing they are going to do. If you need to, just change your ISP.
And in order to know YOU did that, a lawyer actually goes in, downloads it from said torrent site, finds your IP and sends it to who ever. In bit torrent or whatever, it shows everyone there, so he takes them all down and sends them to whatever ISP. legally, they can't prove anything from your IP address. Once you delete the torrent, they can't prove you didn't own a copy of it at some point. That is why you can get away with downloading DVDs from kickass. you're in the clear essentially anon.

Is connecting a front panel USB with a converter of some sort possible/worth it? My 500R's USB doesn't seem to fit in my Z97's slot, and I assume it's due to either too many or not enough pins and I clearly can't tell.

Thanks for the reply! If they can't trademark it, why do they bother sending dmca at all? Seems like a waste. Anyway, I guess just delete the torrent file and be more careful of the trackers I use is all I can do now?
>>
>>52243823
What's the reason you want to do all of that? Can't you just leave it as is?

And, maybe you could find a library someone already made to sanitize in this use. Did you check git already?

So on your mobo there are 19 pins sticking out like in the pic and your front panel cable has 20 female ends, right? Can't you just plug in it? There's nothing physically stopping you right? Or does it not work when plugged it?
Your case is modern one, it should have the appropriate USB3.0 front panel cable to plug in.

It's much too wide, but the adapter noted on your link seems like it'll do the trick. Thanks so much.

>Your friend doesn't care and you know it.

Actually he plays CS:GO and is currently using something called the "blackweb mouse". After the new update he dropped to the lowest rank, and felt way discouraged for even playing and was considering selling all his skins and quitting. He says his budget is 100 dollars or less, but he said he has his eyes on the g300s, so I wanted to get him a mouse with a perfect sensor at that price (30 USD).

And, this "friend" is not me. I have a Deathadder. I heard the g100s was discontinued, but it's still 22 dollars or something and I told him he could go for that, but I wanted to confirm whether or not the mouse he wanted had a perfect sensor. Also, I know shit about sensors, so thanks for the reply, and info. Cheers.

They aren't as bad as /hpg/ will tell you, but they are overpriced; only get them if they're on sale.
Also, unless your really care about the colour of the logo you can't see while wearing them, get Classic instead of Chroma. Literally the exact same product but with a blue light.

So my new computers motherboard only has one port for a case fan, but the case I've got has one built in 120mm and spaces for two extra 120mm fans. I've found a 4 port hub for cheap but after talking to my slightly more tech-literate brother he's worried about drawing power for 3 fans through the one port. Will it be an issue? Or can I go ahead with buying it? The fans I'm looking at are Venturi HF-12s.

Is there a totally standard keyboard that /g/ recommends? I know the Logitech K120 is heavily recommend, but I want a keyboard without any keys being warped. Like a mechanical keyboard, but membrane. Need it for muh games. All standard-sized keys.

pic related. compared a lenovo keyboard to the k120, but the lenovo keyboard costs 40 CAD on amazon so it's not worth it to me. I just wanted to know the /g/ standard, though, so price isn't actually relevant.

You could try
