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

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

Comment reply on Forum Topic "How to connect power supply to MSI Motherboard"

  • 31 months ago

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

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

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

  • 39 months ago

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

Comment reply on Forum Topic "I have a 4Pin on PSU and a 8PIN on Motherboard"

  • 41 months ago
  • 1 point

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)

  • 43 months ago

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

  • 43 months ago

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)

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

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Freezing/Restarting problems - NEED HELP"

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

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Freezing/Restarting problems - NEED HELP"

  • 44 months ago

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.

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"?
