is that 1150 socket? don't really feel like swapping to a new motherboard yet lol
hmm.. idk if i can wait that long.. this pentium g3258 is holding me back on so many games that i want to play... maybe if i can score a good deal on a i5 4690k used to hold me off til 2017 lol
if i go new gen now, id have to get a new motherboard... i might wait til the next gen release at the end of the year :D
how did you get the cpu overclocked? I am considering getting this cpu for my strict budget and wanting to twitch stream.. that xeon would save me about $70 which i could save towards a gpu upgrade.
My exact feeling when i built my very first pc lol
no prob. The motherboard is all around pretty good.. has enough usb ports for all me needs, overclocks my current cpu nicely. Planning on upgrading my cpu to the i7 4790k around Christmas time!
my boot speeds aren't as good as i think they should be. Takes me about 1 minute to get to desktop. Idk if my hdd is just starting to show its age or not (hdd is about 4-5 yrs old). The motherboard is pretty good.
interested.. sent a pm
Should be able to play games at pretty decent settings considering monitor is 1600x900.
Don't lie, your brother got banned on here and pcpartpicker warned me about him scamming me. 1. He provided a fake tracking number for shipping. 2. when i asked for him to provide picture of receipt from shipping for proof he never would provide it. 3. been 11 days now and still no cpu. So stop calling me a scammer when your brother is the scammer.
OK, I will need to get myself a fan controller and some more fans. I don't mind the noise much, if it ever gets bothersome, i'll just get some Noctua fans
sweet, sending a pm..
oh nice, in seattle! bout 6 hours from me so shipping wouldnt be too bad :D
I am totally interested in that Samsung 840 Evo, but my motherboard doesnt have msata :( are there any type of msata to sata converter things out on the market? If, would it affect the performance at all?
that link does not work, just links it to this forum post. Whats the storage size on that Samsung 840 evo? and how much you lookin to get out of it? I may be interested
what kind of chair is that? looks hella comfy and i want one lol
yup, i think im going the r9 380 route or 390 on black friday or cyber monday if they go on sale
thats what i was thinking as well, last 760 4gb i seen elsewhere was going for between 200-215 shipped
what kind of nvidia geforce 760?
planning on a new gpu, either r9 380 or r9 390 if any go on sale, and a 500gb ssd :D
several different parts? what other stuff you got for sale?
what kind of build could be done that performs better at around 550? xD
hmm, i guess it could come in handy at some point in time when i create my time machine, that would be one of the most crucial things to have to build my time machine.
xD lol.. already have a part of my checks that i automatically put towards retirement stuff
Also.. if wood is ok, would staining the wood with w/e wood stain be safe as well?
I was about to post this same exact response, word for word... thanks for stealing my thunder >_>.. Anyways.. NO F N WAYYYY begins drooling uncontrollably
sweet! thanks :D
hmm.. i will look into these.. seeing some good reviews on the prolimatech even then i've never heard of it til now lol
O.o .. what is some good thermal paste then?
oh xD wasnt aware of that lol, thanks for the heads up
i got arctic silver 5 atm so i would use that, just need thermal pads. I'll be reapplying the thermal and pads if Gigabyte won't help me out
I'll give them a call and see what they say!
yup.. i clean my pc out every 1-2 weeks even if there isnt any dust i make sure its nice and clean
my cpu is the intel pentium g3258 OC'd to 4.6 ghz stable. I looked further into my ram and no problems on the test, but on the motherboard website on compatible ram, it doesn't list what i have. So my ram could be good and my pc crashing due to motherboard not supporting my ram? but ram shouldnt affect video's tho? youtube videos are blacked out with barely visible outlines and i have to reload it 1-3 times until the video works properly
Forgot to mention.. my gpu sags.. could this cause my BSoD's? I can try to get rid of the sag somehow and see if it gets rid of it, but i doubt its doing BSoD cause of the sag or i can be wrong lol
i was lucky and mine reached on my r4 case _^ just got this case about 2 weeks ago and love it.. the r4 blackout w/ window
whats the adapter thing called for your hdd to go into the optical drive? (or link please) I would like to get one for myself
What are the top 290x's on the market? I might just go that route and eventually get a 2nd one down the road
Reason being for this cpu cooler is because i am planning on buying an i7 4790k or i5 4690k in about 1-2 months
I got the cpu and mobo together for $100 w/ shipping included off of reddits hardware swap section
:\ darn.. would be nice if I could RMA but then it would leave me without my pc for how ever long that takes and i need my pc for work and games lol
thats what i'm planning to do :D
i bought the board used off of reddit :\ so idk if id be able to rma it. I got the original packaging for it tho
i think its the slot 2 or 4 that is bad.. i put my ram into slot 1 and 3.. thought i had it in those slots to begin with and after switching i haven't had any problems yet
thanks!.. my gpu, ram, psu, hdd, and optical drive were all from previous builds i had. My cpu and mobo i got off of reddit for 100 w/ shipping included in the price!
switched out my ram from slots 2 and 4 (didnt realize they were in that spot) and put them in 1 and 3 and havent had any issues so far.. So my thought is that slot 2 or 4 is not functioning right.
