TheronGuard's Completed Build: Theron

jonjonjon 1 Build 0 points 76 months ago

you can think what you want. just cause something isn't a seasonic psu doesn't mean it "trustworthy". if you look at the return rates seasonic is nothing special. and again why dont you show me something that those aren't "trustworthy" instead of just making stuff up.

here is a quote from the review i linked above. so for this particular psu if you go above 60% load you loose less then 5% efficiency. im sure there are psu's that you loose a lot less. 80 Plus starts at 80% and then each tier you go up is another ~3-4%.

Efficiency was very high (up to 85%) when we pulled up to 60% from its labeled capacity (i.e., 378 W). Above that efficiency dropped, but still above the 80% mark. Voltages were always inside the allowed range, the same thing happening with noise and ripple.

yea i was just pointing out that its not a horrible psu. sure you can spend $100+ on a psu that is better but you could say that about every part he picked.

TheronGuard's Completed Build: Theron

jonjonjon 1 Build 2 points 76 months ago

the reviews don't find any issues with the psu and unless you can show me something were they are failing. they seem perfectly reliable. go on a rant about how you should only buy seasonic psu's.

i was obviously referring to the $500 and $1000 cpu's. there is nothing reasonably priced about them. sure you get 2 more cores for another $700. you can get an 8 core amd for $180.

i agree with you somewhat. if they are the same price i would get the blue ram but i dont think its not worth paying $10+ more for a color. its not like he got red ram which would stick out. plus with the video card and cpu cooler in you can barely see any blue anyway.

yea he must download and seed a million torrents.

come on you know anytime someone has a build with a i7 some says "should have gotten an i5". i do find it amusing. like there is no other use for a computer then gaming.

yea those cables are blocking the airflow from the front fan. move the hdd down a slot so there is space between the 2 drives.

callmejon's Completed Build: First budget gaming build

jonjonjon 1 Build 0 points 76 months ago

if you never plan on overclocking then 3470. it always nice to have the option in the future.

fransebe's Completed Build: First Build Was Fun!

jonjonjon 1 Build 1 point 76 months ago

yea i missed that. consider flipping the psu so the fan is down.

make sure you ssd is plugged into the intel sata3 port not the asmedia ports. also if you want your pc to boot even faster disable to asmedia sata3 ports in the bios since your not using them anyway. you only got far cry with the 7950? i thought they came with the 4-in-1 Game Coupon.

edit: now that im looking closer at the picture it looks like the ssd is plugged into the asmedia controller. definitely move it.

bogy1's Completed Build: Productivity PC

jonjonjon 1 Build 1 point 76 months ago

just cause you don't game doesn't mean there is no reason to get a i5 and overclock it.

did you have to update the bios for the P67 extreme4 to recognize the ivy bridge cpu?

callmejon's Completed Build: First budget gaming build

jonjonjon 1 Build -1 points 76 months ago

get yourself a ssd. also if you went to microcenter you probably could have gotten the 3570k + mb combo for a similiar price.

fransebe's Completed Build: First Build Was Fun!

jonjonjon 1 Build 2 points 76 months ago

nice part selection. people will say you should have gotten a 3570k and a 840 pro instead. don't listen to them.

Mandy's Completed Build: T.Green - How fast can I get to Internet Explorer?

jonjonjon 1 Build 1 point 76 months ago

8GB is the sweet spot. i have a laptop with 4GB and i can use all the memory by trying to load too many youtube videos. you could also run into a compatibility issue mixing ram but most likely it wont be an issue.

Mandy's Completed Build: T.Green - How fast can I get to Internet Explorer?

so how fast can you get to IE?

not sure why people downvoted this. she should have gotten 2 sticks so it takes advantage of the duel channel.

SolunaKitty's Completed Build: First Build: ENCOM-786

jonjonjon 1 Build 0 points 76 months ago

yea im looking at completed listings for 680's and people are paying more then newegg is charging. why? with newegg its guaranteed your getting a new item, you have a 30 day return period and no bs with some scam artist. i would need the item to be well below retail price before i would buy from ebay.

SolunaKitty's Completed Build: First Build: ENCOM-786

jonjonjon 1 Build 1 point 76 months ago

yea its ridiculous that you cant do line breaks. it doesn't matter what the back looks like as long as the cover goes on.

SolunaKitty's Completed Build: First Build: ENCOM-786

jonjonjon 1 Build 0 points 76 months ago

nice i would buy that 680 right now if it still active. every time i ever look on ebay i see everything going at or a lot of the time more then retail prices.

benuntu's Completed Build: Budget AMD Gamer

jonjonjon 1 Build 0 points 76 months ago

its hard to be critical of someone without knowing what they paid. i would have only gotten 8GB of ram, dropped the 1TB hdd and got a 3470/3570k. you can always add another hdd but you cant change the cpu.

benuntu's Completed Build: Budget AMD Gamer

jonjonjon 1 Build 1 point 76 months ago

you are better with only 2. its less work for the memory controller.

SolunaKitty's Completed Build: First Build: ENCOM-786

jonjonjon 1 Build 0 points 76 months ago

i was wondering about the OP. the price tracker doesn't show it going under $400 until the past couple days.

SolunaKitty's Completed Build: First Build: ENCOM-786

jonjonjon 1 Build 0 points 76 months ago

where did you get the 670 for that price?

jonjonjon 1 Build 1 point 76 months ago

he got it at microcenter. in order to get the motherboard combo deal you need to buy a 3225 or 3570k.

SolunaKitty's Completed Build: First Build: ENCOM-786

jonjonjon 1 Build -1 points 76 months ago

he could have gotten the regular 2GB but at that resolution 4GB isn't completely unnecessary. considering he got it for $322.60 which is cheaper then a lot of 660ti's it doesn't really matter.

DomTheBomb13's Completed Build: First Build: Luminous Butterfly

jonjonjon 1 Build 0 points 76 months ago

yea. if you didn't want to get an intel cpu i would have dropped 8GB of ram and gotten a 8350.

Coolaidstyle's Completed Build: Budget Black Friday Build for a Friend: $650

jonjonjon 1 Build 0 points 76 months ago

i was always under the impression you wanted the fan down so the psu takes in cool air from outside and then exhausts it out the back.

Coolaidstyle's Completed Build: Budget Black Friday Build for a Friend: $650

jonjonjon 1 Build 0 points 76 months ago

yea that was a ridiculous price. now they are selling the 2500k for $160. you could have gotten a 3570k for $190 with the mb combo z77a-g41 for $25.

jonjonjon 1 Build 0 points 76 months ago

i wasn't necessarily referring to you. i have yet to see anything that as of right now shows the 660ti is limited by the memory. maybe it will in the a couple years. maybe in a couple years we are all using integrated graphics. who knows.

on a side note newegg has had a couple nice sales on 660ti from $240-250 after MIR.

jonjonjon 1 Build 0 points 76 months ago

im far from a ocz fan but even corsair just buys psu's from other oem's. you really need to look at individual models instead of saying get this brand over that brand.

yea that cable is the first thing i noticed. this is like the standard black friday/cyber monday build.

iasookia's Completed Build: Gaming Rig - 2012

jonjonjon 1 Build 0 points 76 months ago

i would probably get a 7950 over a 660ti but the 660ti as of now isn't crippled by the memory bandwidth. maybe in 2 years it will be but by then you will need a new card anyway. the techpowerup.com benchmark you linked shows the 660ti neck and neck to the more expensive 7950 even with its memory advantage. you can always try to spin a debate about different cards by looking at benchmarks that use different games and resolutions.

now the real question is how does a $80 case that's missing basic cable management options get a 5 star overall rating from 940 people on newegg. am i missing something?

if your not using the marvell sata3 ports on the extreme4 disable them. my pc post and boot 5+ seconds faster with them disabled.

jonjonjon 1 Build 0 points 76 months ago

what is wrong with a 7870 for $230? the 7970 is $350+. unless you see how he can knock $120 off his build price to afford the 7970 your comment is useless. why stop at at only one 7970?

adam360x's Completed Build: The Green Devil

jonjonjon 1 Build -1 points 76 months ago

whats the advantage of it? just to make the install easier? it seems like once all the cables are plugged in the motherboard wouldn't be able to move anyway.

JackkZillaa's Completed Build: First Build - £1100 Gaming PC

jonjonjon 1 Build 0 points 76 months ago

you do realize that ocz doesn't make the psu's. they buy them from OEM's. each model could be made by a different manufacture. sure ocz has had some bad psu's but making blanket statements like all ocz psu's are bad doesn't make sense.

adam360x's Completed Build: The Green Devil

jonjonjon 1 Build 1 point 76 months ago

looking at pictures of the case i don't think you can route cables behind the motherboard. it looks like the back of the case with the stand offs can completely fold down. not sure why you want that other then for the initial install.

adam360x's Completed Build: The Green Devil

jonjonjon 1 Build 0 points 76 months ago

why limit yourself over $5? you can get the 3570k for $215 right now and the 3550 is $210. maybe there was more of a difference at the time. personally i would have gotten the 3570k for $215 and the ASRock Z75 Pro3 for $70. if you were looking to save money you should have gotten the 3470 for $185. there is no reason to spend $150+ on a motherboard unless you have a 2k+ budget.

get a ssd. if you are thinking about positive or negative pressure read the articles below they are interesting even if most of the stuff is pretty basic.
