Doing a bunch of shit so the processor's a lil bit hot
I usually play altis life on asylum #4, but occasionally play Exile on chernarus on [GG]'s server, thats all really. I tried breaking point but they start you with jack shit, not even a map so i said fuck it and uninstalled after wandering for an hour and then getting shot as soon as I found a town lol
GPUs are temporary but I'll probably just put the stock Quadro FX 4600 in it anyway.
bios update disabled my xmp profile havent been on pc to set it back to 3000mhz (ripjaws V)
I picked up a 480 for $30 just because housefire. Keeps my feet warmer then my 670s.
Why don't the z97 boards have a restart button and clear cmos switches? My Ud3h z87 board did and i miss them
>gpu fan off under 60 celcius
>cpu clocked to 4.5ghz at 1.390v (DH-15 so temps are fine)
should i upgrade to windows 10?
been more idle so temps settled down
are you me...
I had a few blue screens at any higher than 4.4 for me, rare as at 4.5, like one every 2 weeks but it started to piss me off so I clocked it back, now it's stable as ever, 390x or 390?
I play exile on GG chernarus too ain't that some shit. Do you play wasteland or Dayz SA too?
Are you for real? 7.8 with a 4.7GHz 4690K & 16GB 1866MHz CAS9 RAM? lol
Anyway also GTX 950, MSI Z97I Gaming AC, more SSDs than you can shake a stick at (thanks eSata) and other boring stuff
you have 16 gigs of ram so why not
just make sure to turn off quick boot (it doesn't help ssds and it causes issues with dual booting)
also install windows in uefi mode.
It's much much nicer
>Are you for real
7.9 on the CPU has been a wild goose chase for many, many years now. It's also arbitrary on the most basic level.
I think my DDR3 was running at 23-24MHz CAS10 but most likely 21.
memory leaks out the ass
pic is of my desktop sitting there with not much open
Overclocked my CPU and RAM a bit just for funsies.
Built this mid 2015 for exactly 1k Euro. I was unsure of choosing a MB, didn't have any noticeable problems with it for the time though.
Did I choose anything bad?
I'm going to get a 144hz monitor some time soon.
It's pretty low spec but meh, planning on getting more RAM because I can't even run fucking black ops without lag spikes
Just installed more ram and cleaned out my heat sink and fan
Wasteland is good for squad fighting like exile. Dayz standalone is a buggy mess but great for memes. Also shitty first build spec.
make way plebians
>all these fights over AMD vs NVIDIA when you can just use both
Just lapped my cpu and dropped 2C idle on top of the 5C drop from the delid last week. Load temps dropped a total of ~10C since I last ran it stock
Im just getting started. Can anyone recommend what i should upgrade next?
I know the feel anon.
I might sell my rig buy cheap ass parts for a new shitty one I can read the news and do work on then use the cash on a road bike and stop playing video games and wasting away
>For video games and that's about it
you don't need hyperthreading then. get the i5-6600k and buy an NVMe M.2 SSD with the leftover money. i would also avoid WD at the moment.
looks good otherwise.
Other than what the other anon said about the 6600k, only weird thing I see is your selection of SSDs. Why two SATA drives from different brands?
I'd recommend getting an M.2 drive for your OS and most commonly used games/programs, and a 1TB SSD for everything else.
I haven't built a computer in several several years and had to have some anons from here help with picking out parts. I ran outta 1tb space last time fairly quickly, and I use only certain games on the ssd to load faster.
not the anon you're replying to but I've asked in a few threads with little to no response..
Are m.2 ssd worth buying now or wait till they become more mainstream, the speeds seem not far off an ssd running on sata 3 anyway..
once you go M.2 you never go back.
it's not as much of a performance increase like sata ssd was to hdd, but you get used to the insane speeds very quickly. i have an 840 evo on my laptop and an sm951 on my desktop, the 840 seems painfully slow to me now.
the sm951 was twice as expensive and is 4 times as fast. you decide if that's worth it for you
Well, it's roughly 4X the speed for 2X the price. In terms of basic math they're a great deal, however the question is how much you're going to notice or care about the extra speed.
Oh ok, the fact that you used pcpartpicker made me think these were all components you were planning on buying, not mixture of new and current.
I can get it to as high as 4.75Ghz but it needs like 1.5v and reaches 80c under load. I kept it where it is as the temps are a lot more manageable. My CPU cooler isnt that great and to be honest there is no noticeable performance difference between 3.9 and 4.7Ghz on most games.
Its a 390, non X.
And I'd just like to follow up by saying that I've been using a 512GB 950 Pro as my system drive for about a month now (I'm >>52537886) and it is amazing. I would highly recommend it, unless you're on a budget and your main concern is just getting enough storage space.
I know I'll eventually get one, that's why I made sure the mobo I got had the option, just price/performance seems a little off right now, ssd has been steadily dropping and has had a few upgrades since it become the norm.
I'd hate to buy the m.2 and have the price half or newer model be a lot faster.... but I guess that's always gonna happen
I went x, was pretty silly really, my mate got a 390, $150 cheaper, pretty much identical performance
I'm thinking of saving up for the titan X, 4k gaming on a 970 is not that great.
Whoops, you fell for the Backblaze meme and now they've changed their mind. Better toss out those WD drives you bought. :^)
Anybody know how to prevent speccy from loading the network section? In debug mode it's easy, but how do I make it permanent? Reading the debug txt didn't help, i also tried with settings in a .ini but i can't figure it out.
I got it for free.
The only purpose of having this PC is the fact it's a desktop computer (the only one I own) and because it has an LTO3 SAS streamer.
I'm using it for archiving old stuff from client pc/servers.
here's my ThinkPad x230. I'm using it with 21:9 ultrawide monitor connected to the minidock. Next week I'm gonna get a 660Ti eGPU.
A little hot since I just finished playing my personal computer audio visual video games
I've got a question? Should I upgrade to a FX-8320 or FX-8350 and how would that improve my fps on CPU intensive games like CS:GO? Now I know 8350 is just a faster 8320, but over clocking the 8320 sounds spooky so I'd rather just pay more like an idiot.
>tfw Canadian $ in the shitter.
>no freesync 1440p 'till summer at this point.
Im the one with 2 zotac 980ti's, but i've been memed to. They were advertised as two-slot cards, but in reality they are 2,5. So now the top card is blowing its fans at full speed sucking air through a pitiful half centimeter with its nose in the hot ass of the other.
Will try to rig something with a pcie extender to alleviate that, because right now i wont dare overclocking them past the factory 1253 MHz overclock.
I'll pay more attention to the actual size next time i'm upgrading, because right now it's a bit of a housefire even if it performs well and doesnt thermal throttle... Still way too hot for my taste.
Since I'm running three I don't get ANY room between the cards and it's been pretty hot and a bit loud so far, but I haven't felt the need to overclock yet...
I'll probably switch to water cooling once I upgrade my CPU/MBO but I don't think that's going to be very soon.
>Using non free windows programs to show off your wicked sick gaymen machines
>tfw Speccy doesn't report AMD temps properly
Is there anything that actually does? That said, my thermal margin (whatever that is) now sits a good 20 degrees C cooler with this Hyper TX3 versus the piece of shit aluminum stock cooler.
The motherboard is a bit of a housefire with that nvidia chipset, other than that it still runs stronk in its 7th year of life.
I have room to oc even more, but I decided to level out at 4.7
