where you maybe watching 1080p gameplay of battlefield 4? Also overclocking your CPU could help with GPU performance.
Your fans on your GPU turn off sometimes because they do not get hot enough, as it uses less power when it doesnt need as much cooling. If thats the case when gaming, i recommend overlocking the GPU as well since it isnt taking much of a hit!
I guess I will try my luck with buying it. I saw a lot of reviews mention keys sticking for the blues but I really like it and that's the only place I can find it for that price
Oh shi I guess I wasnt looking hard enough. Thanks for the link though!
Those Temps are about half of what mine were when running prime95. Skylake runs a bit hot so those are great. You can go up to 80-90° on prime95 and that's about where you should stop going any higher. As for the gpu, unless you want to play newer games with tons of eye candy, you don't need one. If it works good for you now then stay. When it falls behind a bit then you can get one if you want!
No real reason to upgrade your cpu or gpu yet! The CPU performs almost as well as the 6700K and unless you are doing hardcore editing and rendering whatnot, you wont notice that much. The GPU would only be worth the upgrade if you absolutely need the best of the best. Lets face it, the 1070 is great as it is, but it wont be able to handle 4K like the 1080 can. Its up to you on that one
Very nice features, might have to invest in one!
Thank you! I love it :)
what kind of desk is that
alright, so since the free upgrade of windows 10 ends july 29th and i wont come back from vacation until july 30th I wont be able to get the upgrade, which I guess is fine. How would I uninstall windows 10 off my hard drive if I reset it
ahhh ok that makes sense. so i should just clone it?
Oh, well I used a retail version of windows 8.1 and used the free windows 10 activation, does that make any difference?
Hmm, So I couldn't call them up and try or would it just be worth fresh installing WIndows 8.1
so i wouldnt be able to clone my hard drive and have a legal copy of windows 10?
They look very similar to these: http://pcpartpicker.com/product/fhW9TW/corsair-case-fan-co9050016wled
But I am not so sure. I like them too.
Oh nice. I will do that then considering I already have another copy of windows. Thanks so much:)
Ok so if I took the HDD out and put in the ssd, I could install Windows on the ssd and put the HDD back in..but what would hapeen to the copy of Windows on the HDD already?
oh really? I'll have to look at that one, RGB lights are nice
yeah I was looking into that one as well, but if I decided to go for it, I would wait for it to go on sale and think about it.
yeah i just saw that board had bad reviews but i guess it is just opinionated.
the placement of the sata ports wouldnt have been an issue for me, but i prefer quality over features, and many reviewers had bad experience with theirs. I might just stick with the Krait 3x then since I do like the color
Yeah was thinking about the 212 evo but I've decided to buy the cryorig h7 to fit my white/black color scheme :)
Cool. Was going to upgrade most my parts soon. Especially the case and get an aftermarket cpu cooler. +1 on the build
walk me through your list and order of upgrades! Im really interested to see what you upgraded and when you did :)
i think u could have gotten a cheaper SSD then gotten a GTX 1070 but thats just me
I guess I will have to reinstall then. Thanks for the support!
Oh ok, Because I have a Windows 8.1 disc sitting somewhere safe. So I couldnt just reuse that one?
how do i run a memtest exactly?
i have a gpu. To be exact its the GTX 760 4GB version
if it is bad i can easily change it
alright ill check
i have 4 ram slots, should i switch to the other two slots and if that doesnt work, try your idea?
its 64 bit
and my ram is in slots 2 and 4 does that have anything to do with it
i bet that graphics card was a bish to put in
oh i see now. Thanks i will definitely be needing this!
what is a partition if u dont mind me asking?
yeah those are the only two options I have at this moment, I guess I will have to figure out how to move windows over to an SSD
I will try this after I understand what this means lol. Im not the best with the software of the computer so I will have to do a little googling to understand what this msconfig and elevated command prompt mean. Thanks for the response!
Alright I guess it will be worth to spend the money on an SSD, thanks for the help!
Oh really? Well it looks really nice. Great build
I absolutely love the color you chose for your setup. The parts look perfect together and my god that keyboard is nice! Did you get it from Massdrop?
Also, I would like to tell you that your backstory is really emotional and I am sorry for what you went through in order to build this masterpiece, hopefully you are okay and will enjoy it to its fullest :)
i love this
how's the 380 handle gaming wise? Your parts are very even and you future proofed your build for a few years even. +1
Can i just ask, in picture six, where did u find an extension cord that long? i neeeeed it
That NZXT logo on the water cooler looks sexy!
Also, those are some funky looking speakers (i think they are speakers) you have there
I once ran into a race
One question, how did you take that second shot?
Its all fun and games until you run out of mouse room :)
it only goes up to 60MHz so i dont know why it is doing it
hmmm seems like everything is up to date
