Need some tech support boys: SOMETIMES when i turn on my pc i get a beep AFTER the post beep which has a different tone to it, and then one of my fans starts to give out strange sounds (like its working really hard or something is fucked) anyway then i just tap the back of my pc and everything goes back to normal, the fan noise stops.
WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT SECOND BEEP AFTER THE POST BEEP?

Okay, she's been a little moody lately because I've been using my tablet to browse the web lately.
But at the end of the day, I only fap with my PC so she knows shes the most important device in my life.
>>
>>52288095
I need something portable these days anon and I'd rather have a single powerful device containing everything than two separate ones
>>
>>52288336
There's nothing wrong or hard with managing two devices anon.

Good. I built a 4690k machine in a Define R5 last May. Running Antergos with a GTX 960 and she's ready for Pascal and 4k later this year
>>
My PC caught fire. So it dead. RIP.

New build is coming together slowly. Have my board, RAM, PSU, and case. Drives will be here soon.

I've been using my girlfriend's 2013 MBP. It's sluggish even with the i5 and 8GB, the HDD is slow, she has too much shit on it, and she forgot her keychain password and it asks for the password every ten minutes. Help me.
>>
My computer doesn't afraid of anything.
>>
it's okay. have an FX-6350 with a 4GB GTX 670. waiting for Zen and Polaris before I make my next build. Might buy a Polaris card earlier though, if Zen is shit at least I can make an Intel build with a Polaris card
>>
I suppose it could be better but I'm well satisfied with it. 5820k, 16gb DDR4, GTX 980.

Considering purchasing a second 980 or building a super cheap mini A8 desktop.
>>
Expensive. Trying to build a mid-range rig though after 7 years of not having one.

If anyone has pointers for an $800 build, let me know.

Hard Mode: PC parts here cost 15%-20% more than the in the US
>>
>>52291028
>Considering purchasing a second 980
I think you mean buying a fleshlight and setting the rest aside for Pascal
>>
>>52291208
Oh hey that's a good idea. But I have a GF who likes to touch my peen so maybe I'll just set aside money for an sli setup
>>
>>52291028

>implying you always get x2 performance from SLI

Don't waste the money, just build your mini PC
>>
It's pretty cold, like 13C. Fuck this room.

I recently found out my computer is homosexual.
It doesn't know I know and I'm not sure what to do.

>>52288765
How did it catch fire?
>>
>>52291654
It's not about having two processors, its about having double the VRAM AND two processors.

she's not that well at the moment.

Suggest me a graphics card so I can play fallout4 on ultra and star citizen on high when it comes out.
>>
>>52292710

gt 710
>>
Built a PC using parts for the first time. Such a gratifying experience.
All I need is a GPU and I'm good to go.
>>
>>52292710
Byou the time star citizen comes out everything out now will look like gt 8800s
>>
>>
Main rig is starting to show it's age and can't play F4, GTA4, etc at anything but the lowest settings.

Moving cross country in about 6 months, going to throw it on eBay and just take my Thinkpad
>>
>>52286752
the fans in my rig are dying right now
they make horrible noise
but it could be worse
>>
Custom, thanks
>>
>>52291696
Did you remove it's floppy drive?
>>
>>52286752
My desktop is dead! ;_;

The only good thing is that it is some kind of cooling issue that made the BIOS just say no.

My budget is 10 000 SEK. Can anyone suggest a good gaming rig for me, please? It only has to run Fallout 4 good on 1920*1080.

Also, what is the best socket, please?

>>52295439
Does that really work? Doesn't it interfere with the CPU and VGA fans, causing stress on them?

>>52295576
Do you use to clean your computer with pressurized air?
>>
>>52286752
Motherboard shorted last week. Waiting for my replacement. Upgraded to the MSI z97 krait ski edition
>>
>>52295817
I'm using it because gpu fan got broken. The only downside is the cold air coming from below that freeze me.
>>
>>52295963
I see.

And has anyone managed to water cool the GPU/VGA?
>>
mine's in the mail

>>52286752
I always think somethings wrong with my Pc, even tho it has Decent parts and is just a couple of months old.
>>
>>52288701
I'd love a case that looks like a jerry can.
>>
>>52297432
probably just your autism

>>52297693
Eh could be
>>
My computer is doing well, thanks. I think it could do with some more fans, because the GPU tends to get hotter than I'm comfortable with. How's yours?

I'm about to build a PC for the first time. I bought some used components for a good price, they'll be waiting for me when I get back from holiday.

i5 4690k
16GB 2400 MHz HyperX Savage RAM
Asus VII Impact mini-ITX motherboard
EVGA Hadron Air

All for 4000 NOK.

I'm just hoping that buying used components is a safe bet, and that the PSU in the Hadron is of good quality.
Next I'll need a GPU and a cooler for the 4690k. I think I'll buy those used as well.
>>
>>52295411

Shit.

My last care was a geforce 6600. Have been living inside laptops/mobile/ps3/ps4 since.

What if I bought a gtx980ti now, and another one for crossfire when star citizen comes out?
>>
Broken since I got back from vacations
I suspect sabotage.
>>
>>52298579
>gtx980ti
>crossfire
You sure about that?

He's okayish, my old m5a78l-le and phenom x4 965 BE clocked to 4.2 (since day 1) is slowly dying, I can still play all games i want at high settings tho, it's been some rough years on him, when he dies I'll pick up an i5.

Just upgraded my monitor for the first time in over 5 years. Moving from a Dell U2211 to a Dell U3415w is a pretty huge upgrade.

I figure in another 5 years I'll probably upgrade to some OLED monitor as prices come down.
>>
Not great, it's like a 5 year old gaming rig that I build for $550, so it really can't run a whole lot these days and the video card get uncomfortably hot just watching movies with mpv.

I don't think I want to build another desktop, so I'm just slowly saving money and looking into high end laptops like he Dell XPS 15 or 15 inch Retina Macbook Pro. I'm sort of hoping if I wait long enough Apple will refresh their offering and actually offer a tier with a gaming capable graphics card. I don't even need much, just to be able to play Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2, and World of Warcraft.
