Brilliant job with the case! I know what i am doing with my own Meshify now...
you know your computer is overkill...
when half your photos are of your case's back area!
idk quite how to post a pic at this particular moment but i can say that the cpu cores all together went up and down around 50% (also max temps are like: cpu -40c gpu -50c)
also, one thing i noticed is that no matter where i put the graphics in-game, the lag spikes didn't get much better on minimum graphics when compared to max graphics
i do actually use an air compressor on my computer often, kinda enjoy doing it
temps on gpu when i was playing was ~50c
cpu never goes much higher than 30c, that noctua d-14 is insane
kinda thinking that there may be something off with my system, would ram speeds have anything to do with it? because my ram has been running at 1333 (what is it, mhz? ghz?) instead of 1866 like they were advertised, maybe its my mobo idk i think i'll try out some random bits of ram to see if it improves
the part i find most pleasing about this build is that, while being absolutely GORGEOUS, is not a decked-out crazy i7-6700k sli 1080ti setup, just a nice casual build that again, looks gorgeous
goes to show what a bit of imagination can do to anything
love it! may the upvotes be with you!
hey, is that passmark test of the entire computer or the cpu alone? just wondering cause my little amd fx 4350 got 5549 when my entire build gets more like 3000 or below
oh and i like it much, +1 of course
and if i could've gone back and redone my build i would've gotten a pentium like that, wasnt as educated on pc stuff back then
hey dude, no gaming while driving
looks good too, :P
i originally had a 430w psu that was cutting it way to close so when upgrading i decided to go with one that would pose no issues on the wattage front for about forever
looking back i suppose it was a bit overboard but i still have no regrets with it
i try to record with obs studio too with this build (https://pcpartpicker.com/list/fZy2NN) and yea, its laggy, not even when recording just having it up.
its probably just too hard to run on only four cores without any multithreading, personally im planning to upgrade to something better (like a ryzen 7) when i can afford it
besides maybe lowering resolution and framerate by a ton idk what could be done
beautiful cable management
from what i can tell, pcpartpicker lists no incompatibilities, so i think it would be a safe bet to think they are...
there should be two plugs (at least in newer motherboards) one 24-pin and one 8/4-pin plugs, and they both must be plugged in
(extra tidbit, the 24-pin powers the motherboard and the 8/4-pin powers the cpu)
also, if your power supply has a 4-pin and your motherboard has an 8-pin slot then just plug it in where it fits...
i had an r9 380 and experienced numerous issues linked to it, and from some research it seems that the drivers for 280/390 (ish) are defective
(this may help? https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/4epk1o/force_amd_fix_their_drivers_for_r9_380_users/)
i got a dual 550ti setup now and its just about as good frame rate-wise but NO more issues involving freezes and such
cable management at its finest
nothing is wrong, the card probably just doesn't get hot enough while idling to require the fans to run on full blast. they should kick in when under stress though
your mobo and video card should come with a cd with their drivers on it, so dont worry too much about it
i have practically the same build, but an amd fx 4350 instead
personally i think a solid state would be good, same with the rx, but most importantly the processor, i would do the same with mine if i upgraded.
keep in mind, as log as it does what you need it to do, then dont spend a bunch of money on upgrading it, unless of course you have money to burn or something XD
nice choice for a cooler! its pretty great isnt it? (although, it does throw off a color theme pretty bad! XD maybe with after-stock fans?)
its telling you that there's something wrong with the boot drive or it's connection, make sure it's plugged in properly
can you get to the BIOS?
it could be a number of things (drivers, wifi adapter, modem)
does it connect to other networks?
well, as long as there is some thermal paste on there, you should be fine.
70c isnt that bad (although my fx 4350 sits at 30c idle with noctua d14) its when it gets over 100c that you have something to worry about
one guy had the same issue and it turned out he didnt plug it in XD did YOU plug it in? XD
if you did its most likely the power supply or its connection to the motherboard/wall socket
which component is getting that hot? for a gpu thats not too horrible, just be sure it stays below 100c
i see you have a liquid cooler for your cpu though, if that's whats getting so hot it may be because of the thermal compound or something
did you update your board's chipset? PcPartPicker says it isnt compatible, and overclocking with an outdated chipset doesnt seem like a good idea
i would tell you how to update it but, well, i dont really know how XD
all newer motherboards have a 24pin plug for power, the extra 4/8 pin plug is just for more power to the cpu (like overclocking).
before i got a new PSU, i only had the 1 4pin plug in the 8pin cpu power slot and it worked fine, just dont majorly overclock
otherwords, 8pin cpu power plug in the 8pin slot is best, but it will work with a 4pin plug instead. (it might even work without anything plugged in)
so no lights come on at all before/ after you press the power button? even the little one on the motherboard?
Lol, thanks guys
Presently, yes. But in the future? Who knows? This may become an everyday sight! XD
True, but we don't have any spare SSDs handy XD and since it won't be used much, I'm not too worried about it
you have 2 coolers.. XD is there any specific reason for that?
Does it literally power off on its own? Or does it freeze first causing you to have to manually shut it down by holding the power button?
replacing the psu is what worked for me
so the PC looses connection to the monitor and locks up? that happened to me and i replaced my PSU.
Well, the temps seem fine, no need to worry, and wow! You have the same gpu I do! (But mines the 2gb model) Isn't it cool? XD
Anyways, the temps on my gpu do get up pretty high, like 60-70c and about 40c idle, so you really should be fine. If you just really want lower temps and don't mind some extra noise, you could get MSI Afterburner to manually speed up the fans
It's great to see someone using that awesome in-win h tower!
Make sure everything is plugged in I guess
there arent really any websites for reliable benchmarking anything besides internet speed, to get and accurate rating, you'll probably have to install something.
ive used passmark performance test a LOT, any i really like it, it has tests for CPU, 2d graphics, 3d graphics (up to direct x 11), RAM, HHD/SSD, everything, and a 30-day free trial, which is all you need for running a full benchmark once or twice.
heres a link to it (http://www.passmark.com/products/pt.htm)
I had a problem somewhat like that, reinstalling/updating the graphics drivers fixed it for me
Are they both EXACTLY the same? Same speed/same storage?
maybe one from another pc just to test it or one from a friend that you could borrow? i just took the plunge mostly because my wattage was to low anyways
400w should be fine, (I had 430) but it could also be that the psu is on its way out, that's why if you have another one or one from a friend you could test to make sure
probably the PSU, i had the same issue and replacing the PSU fixed it
your current one could be either too low on wattage or on it's way out,
if you have another one you could borrow, you should use it and see if it actually is the problem. either way, a higher wattage PSU wouldn't be all that bad as 400w doesn't leave much room for upgrades.
yea that XD, i couldnt get it into the post so i just said where to find it
does the monitor stay on?
besides admiring my computer, i throw random old pc parts my family has in the garage together in attempt to make one that works (with no avail.. for now)
well, i really have no experience with file server software and stuff like that, but by searching "setting up a file server" and it seems that a program called FreeNAS is recommended a lot.
i think it's free (hence the name) but im not entirely sure, or do i know anything about it, so be sure to do some research yourself first
you have to do a hard shutdown? (if not is there an error message/what does it say?)
will the screen freeze as well or will it go into "power saving mode"?
+1 for not only being a great pc, but for being featur-able too, i really need to do something awesome to mine
