Junior1210's Completed Build: Power Brick

Fleuger99 1 Build 1 point 1 month ago

Totally agree! I also exclusively use SeaSonic Gold for my various builds PSU but I like to double what my actual need is so as not to over work the PSU.

I tried several things and only thing that works is dropping my refresh rate from 144 to 100 in the NVIDIA Control Panel app.

I've not had any issues with them, I've ordered some components from there for two builds. On the other hand, I've started to detest Newegg. The cut costs on their shipping, they are using base bones (for free shipping) FedEx which transports one's order most of the way but then hands it off to USPS to deliver to your mail box. This approach adds a week to delivery which is pathetic.

I'm in Austin TX and they shipped something from Cali and it took 12 days. No more Newegg for me.

I have the NVIDIA Founders Edition RTX 2080 and I'm seeing same temps as you running BF5 so nothing to worry about.

Yeah, using DP 1.2 cable. No, I'll try that tonight when I get home. Thanks for the suggestion.

Thanks appreciate it! I built a gaming machine last year and used a 1TB Samsung 970 Pro M.2 drive and that required special drivers from Samsung so assumed this would be the same.

Nice all-around build. Great cable management for first build.

I'm building my father a computer and just bought the ADATA - XPG SX8200 Pro 512 GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive you used, even on Adata's site I see nothing about drivers for download. How/where did you get your drivers from?

Got it, thanks for the response.

Nice build, super clean. Looking to build my father a basic machine for internet surfing, email etc. I have several components which I'll use and was planning on buying this same case. I don't see any mention of a hard drive/SSD. Where did you mount it?

Nice build specs!! I have a Samsung - 970 Pro 1 TB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive without a heat sink and it never goes above 60, even when gaming. I'd say your issue is airflow.

Also, I just bought a RTX 2080 and the suggested minimum PSU is 650 for the RTX 2080. You might want to invest in a good one which will also cover you for future demand. I bought myself a SeaSonic - FOCUS Plus Gold 850 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply which I got for only $102.

Good luck getting the issue resolved.

Thanks! Yes, slowly making changes here and there although out of cash right now as needed to spend some money on my Saab convertible.

Maybe mid-year next year will invest on a 2080 GPU then this machine should be done.

Roger that. Thanks again.

Thanks for the info. I installed and ran CPU-Z and its telling me it's Coffee Lake. The other application I saw Kaby Lake on was the Driver Easy app which provides similar info. It is odd that it picked up Kaby Lake.

Fleuger99 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

Congrats on your first build! I'd recommend you take some time and work now on cable management as even small improvements have a big impact.

You might want to look for a cheap case that is a little nicer as it will also have a big impact on improving the visual aspect of your build. I was able to find a great case at a great price when I built my first build back in March. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/vYp323/cougar-mx330-atx-mid-tower-case-mx330

Great build while maintaining a low budget target. The result looks great and most importantly it serves your needs perfectly. Nice job!

Fleuger99 1 Build 2 points 7 months ago

Congrats, nice build! I did the same thing as you, built my first machine in Mar this year and started out with 'humble' components and in the last four months I've upgraded CPU, GPU, got a 1TB M.2 SSD and a Noctua CPU cooler.

That is the fun of ever evolving rigs but it hurts the wallet a bit :)

Around 70c is fine, that is within normal operating temps. You need to be concerned anything north of high 80's. I once read from NVIDIA that anything nearing 100c is excessive to prevent damage to the hardware.

Fleuger99 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

Nice build. In March I built my first machine and like yourself the cable management wasn't great. About two months after completion I went through and redid about 70% of the cables and it came out 100% better. Give it a try and you'll be glad you did.

The last pic was before I redid my cable management.

Forum Topic "Screen Going Black Only During Gaming"

Fleuger99 submitter 1 Build 1 point 7 months ago

Update: I've been running an older Dell machine (using HDMI) and my newly built machine (using DP) through a monitor splitter to a monitor using the same mouse and keyboard. I've been wondering if this could be the source of my issues and I just bought a 27" 144mhz monitor from Dell.

Last night I unboxed my older monitor and completely separated the two systems, each having their own monitor and this seems to have fixed my issue as I gamed last night on my new machine and never had any blacking out. Hopefully this issue is resolved.

Hi bulgudu,

My case didn't come with an LED strip, it is after-market. Mine is not connected to the MB at all. I have it powered via PS and it's got magnets that hold the LED strips in place via the metal case.

Mine came with a remote to change the LED colours, the receiver for that I mounted near the front of my case so it would work well.

Fleuger99 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

Right there with you, I'd love an M5 but its beyond my budget for a car. Honestly, older BMW's start costing some serious cash to keep going. I only keep mine five or six years then trade them in.

I love my X5 diesel, great performance and gets 24mpg city and on a recent 1560 mile trip I was getting 33mpg highway, those are real numbers (miles / gallons) not the computer. Great mpg for a vehicle that size doing 80Mph.

Which Lexus do you have?

Fleuger99 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

I'm just messing with you. Personally not a fan, most are too luxury focused, I prefer more sportiness, with perhaps exception of the GS.

I drive an X5 diesel and had a few other BMW's and Audis.

Great rig!! Lots of cooling capability and the whole package looks cool. Only negative thing to say, great taste in computers but bad taste in cars ;)

I have an Intel - Core i3-8100 3.6GHz Quad-Core Processor for sale. Only been using it for six months with Noctua air cooler. I also have the following for sale if you're interested then ping me:

SeaSonic - 520W 80+ Bronze Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply MSI - GeForce GTX 1050 2GB Video Card

The above two items were only used for two months when I upgraded my GPU and PSU to cope with new GPU. All in original packaging. Thanks.

Fleuger99 submitter 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

Honestly, only reason was it didn't have WiFi and could use more USB 3 ports. Apart from that it has been flawless and works great.

The BIOS works flawlessly and is easy to configure/change as needed. I highly recommend the MB for this price point.

Great job on your first build. It looks super clean and all great hardware. What are the temps your CPU is running under load?

Beefqueen's Completed Build: Crystal [B]epsi

Fleuger99 1 Build 2 points 8 months ago

I just found this online regaring CPU temp ranges:

Intel CPU Temps - Kaby Lake Idle Temp Normal Temp Max Temp

Core i3-7350K* 25 to 33°C 45 to 60°C 100°C

Core i5-7600K* 25 to 35°C 45 to 65°C 100°C

Core i7-7700K* 25 to 35°C 50 to 70°C 100°C

Fleuger99 1 Build 2 points 8 months ago

I don't believe so. I think as long as any CPU/GPU is under 80 you're fine and you never want to go into 90's.

Fleuger99 1 Build 1 point 8 months ago

Thanks, appreciate it. I'm running the D9L on my Gen 8 i3 and it never exceeds 52 and its at 32 at idle.

I was wondering if the D9L would work for the new CPU or if I'd have to go water cooling. I've never done water cooling before and read some are not much better than a good air cooler.

Beefqueen's Completed Build: Crystal [B]epsi

Fleuger99 1 Build 2 points 8 months ago

Awesome, thanks for letting me know. I'm currently running a Gen 8 i3 CPU and it never goes over 52 under load gaming. Idle it is at 32.

Nice build!! What temps does your CPU run with the air-cooler? I'm planning on upgrading to your CPU and currently I'm running a Noctua - NH-D9L as my cooler so was wondering if it would suffice.

Thanks, appreciate the comment. The last pic I have posted was how it looked after building it and with the 2GB GPU. I started seeing how good other's cable management was and realized how poor mine was. I unplugged just about everything and redid all the cables hiding them better. It isn't great looking though on the back end but no one sees that :)

Fleuger99 1 Build 1 point 10 months ago

Invest $20 in Driver Easy software. It scans your entire system and lets you know there are updated drivers for anything that uses drivers. It then installs them for you, first making a restore point in the event anything goes wrong.

I've been using it now for about six months and its awesome!
