Pretty balanced build! I've made a few changes below.

Personally, I wouldn't recommend the 8350k, even though it's unlocked (not a very good value in my opinion). I've changed it to an 8400. An 8100 won't bottleneck the 1050 ti in most situations as well. :)

Kingston has not seen the best track record for performance and reliability the past few years, so I've changed the brand of SSD.

Forum Topic "Possible to upgrade?"

jakeSpot 1 Build 1 point 8 hours ago

Putting the Athlon in modern context with a base level Pentium:

http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/AMD-Athlon-II-X2-250-2013-DRi-vs-Intel-Pentium-G4400/m1064vs3539

I would just scrap it. The processor would be a quite severe bottleneck for a modern GPU (or game). (Also, building a new one's always good fun. Just not for your wallet :P )

Forum Topic "Any suggestions to my new build before I get them?"

jakeSpot 1 Build 1 point 15 hours ago

Pretty balanced build overall! My suggestions below:

I would either downgrade to the 8400, or upgrade to the 8600k if you want to overclock for your processor.

http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i5-8600-vs-Intel-Core-i5-8400/m477251vs3939

I would choose a slightly more reliable SSD at your price point, as well

For your video card, I would suggest going with a 1070ti because GPU prices are still really inflated, and there is not a huge performance difference:

The case I chose has two fans pre-mounted in the front. I've chosen a similar one for the back as well. I also haven't included the monitor in the price. Is this ok?

Do you need an OS included in the price? (I can't find Windows 10 on Amazon)

The RAM, and brand of GPU/PSU is tentative.

Nice! I like the red and black theme. I've changed just a few things down below:

Do you need a mouse or OS, or have you already purchased one? (There's none in your setup.)

GPU prices are still quite inflated, and I don't the close to €70 is worth it for the 1080. I've changed it to a 1070 Ti.

http://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-1080-vs-Nvidia-GTX-1070-Ti/3603vs3943

I've chosen a slightly more affordable case, although the one you got works just fine.

For your wireless card, I've chosen one that's slightly more affordable, but does not follow the color theme.

Hmm, good find.

I have never replaced a part besides the ram and the psu

If I were you, I would just take it to a PC repair shop and have them fix it, if that it a viable option.

Thanks! :D

Yes, the 2600x and x470 mobo combination could definitely be a viable option! However, I was still thinking about going blue at this price point (maybe with an 8600k, like this?) To be frank, from here it's just personal opinion. :-)

I see. Then you have many more options.

Have you looked into using another model/brand of RGB case fan?

Forum Topic "In need of advice for gaming setup"

jakeSpot 1 Build 2 points 3 days ago

To answer your first question, I think all of the parts I listed besides peripherals are not RGB and will not change color. If you'd like an RGB or color-themed build, I'd be more than happy to swap out a few parts in the list; as I didn't have any color scheme in particular while designing this :(

If I recall correctly, Elgato provides software on their website to interface with whatever platform you are streaming on, and should provide you with many video customization options.

EDIT: All their software / utilities are listed here (there aren't many), but should be adequate for decent streaming: https://www.elgato.com/en/gaming/downloads

I have never actually streamed myself, unfortunately, so I don't have any recommendations on third party streaming tools.

jakeSpot 1 Build 1 point 3 days ago

Next time, please consider posting this in Hardware > Other or Troubleshooting. Thanks! :)

Unfortunately, your only choice may be to put it as an intake fan, as it is very rare to be able to control the direction the fan blows in.

To double check that it is that direction, have you tried using a tissue paper and see which way it blows/ sucks near the fan?

Hello, not too shabby for a first build! Could I safely assume you are using this for gaming?

To start off with, have you researched the advantages of this specific mobo? The price seems quite high. I'm going to leave it in the list and assume there is a good reason.

For such a high end build, I would suggest not going so "cheap" on the SSD. I've chosen a more reputable below. Also, unless you are not playing many games, I suggest adding a second HDD for storage.

I would really suggest going with a cheaper case unless you really like the aesthetics.

I've chosen a power supply with slightly more wattage for efficiency and future expandibility.

With such a high-end graphics card, I chose a monitor with a slightly higher refresh rate.

jakeSpot 1 Build 2 points 3 days ago

With your $1.5k setup budget (including peripherals), I would advise against having separate PC's because even a basic streaming PC utilizing a prebuilt can go well above $350, eating into a considerably large chunk of your budget.

occasionally game via my PC,

In a hypothetical two-rig build, you wouldn't even be using the one for gaming that much if you are mostly doing console. In my humble opinion, I would go with one rig for your use case. If you do plan to game intensively on PC in the future, do go for a steaming rig as it hugely frees up your resources for games.

Windows 10 is arguably the standard for PC gaming and streaming nowadays.

Anyways, here is a complete build with a capture card, admittedly a little over budget: However, I strongly recommend you get better peripherals (and a slightly bigger budget).

Forum Topic "H440 HDD mount in other location"

jakeSpot 1 Build 1 point 3 days ago

Maybe a physical compatibility issue? Which probably cannot be fixed without some power tools (usually)

Your case manual should list all mounting spots for 3.5" drives. I suggest you check it. It can also easily be found online.

Forum Topic "Hdd rattling"

jakeSpot 1 Build 1 point 3 days ago

About your second error, I think it's the MSI driver tools giving you an error. Have you replaced a part in the PC and no longer need the drivers for it?

Hmm... The plastic material should not be causing very bad rattling.

Here is a dampening screw , but I'm not sure it will work with your case:

Forum Topic "Hdd rattling"

jakeSpot 1 Build 1 point 4 days ago

I think you already have the problem pinpointed. Nice work. Could you describe what material the drive bay is, and how it is attached to the HDD?

Honestly, now your best bet would be to add some padding / dampening material (that won't stifle the hard drive) or purchase a higher quality aftermarket drive holders compatible with your case.

Forum Topic "Budget Dedicated Streaming PC"

jakeSpot 1 Build 1 point 6 days ago

At your budget, your best bet is to buy a basic refurbished prebuilt and add in a capture card, unfortunately.

You can find many refurbished ones that fit your needs by doing a quick search on amazon.

Forum Topic "Cheap NAS Build"

jakeSpot 1 Build 1 point 6 days ago

Do you have a budget or a location(country where you are purchasing parts)? A genernal size for your NAS?

Anyway, here is a build that should work as a NAS: I haven't included a physical RAID controller or OS. Don't use the case PSU.

Forum Topic "The smallest budget"

jakeSpot 1 Build 1 point 6 days ago

I would really go with faster RAM if he really wants to build this system (a little over budget admittedly), but I wouldn't recommend the build anyway (crappy PSU, no SSD, etc.). Something like this:

Nice! Pretty balanced build. Did you go for the G4600 instead of the G4560 because of product availability? I think the G4560 is much cheaper with not much of a performance difference.

2.0 x 3mm (CM2x3-3.3), although I think it might differ in laptops (unlikely). Usually hardware stores will have a very big selections of screws and you should be able to find.

Or buy something online (Amazon) like this:

Forum Topic "Best gaming PC for $800-$900? (ETS2 at 60 FPS)"

jakeSpot 1 Build 1 point 7 days ago

I'm glad to say you won't have to do any overclocking at all! (As in no XMP, no CPU OC, no GPU OC) :D Just remeber to install drivers for your 1060 using the geforce website and you should be able to reach 1080p 60fps no problem.

I'm assuming that EST2 shouldn't require a really fancy gaming mouse/keyboard with preset keys, etc. To stay under budget, I grabbed you a combo without a membrane (non-mech) keyboard, but you can switch it out for any set you like.

Nice build! Love the RGB.

Quick question - Why did you go for the 8600 instead of the unlocked k version?

Forum Topic "Best gaming PC for $800-$900? (ETS2 at 60 FPS)"

jakeSpot 1 Build 1 point 7 days ago

Sure! Here's a build that's around your budget. Do you need peripherals in the price?

It shouldn't be too difficult to build.

Another question- Would you like to hit 1080p 60fps or a higher resolution? This build should be able to do 1080p 60fps with most settings on max.

best buy told me they can’t help me unless I pay more for a plan which I’m not doing.

I this point I don't think anything is gonna happen with Best Buy unless you ask for a refund.

I might be worth a try, though :-)

Forum Topic "Blue screen on new pc"

Huh.... good find.

It just might be a bad mobo as well. I would suggest returning the prebuilt at this point if it's too hard to diagnose.

No problem! Glad I could be of help.

Forum Topic "Blue screen on new pc"

jakeSpot 1 Build 1 point 9 days ago

Good question. I'd actually run it on Microsoft drivers for a week (if you can survive that long with decreased driver performance.)

If the problem keeps happening, I'd be suspecting a bad/cheap PSU depending on whether the prebuilt is of "crappy quality" or not.

But if ms drivers are fine, I would try installing an older version of the 1060 driver or contacting NVidia support. I'd also look for a second opinion.

The next time please post this in the "create a part list for me" to gain better visibility and relevance.

To better help you with a build, can you describe what peripherals you need in the price, or if you need an operating system?

A general purpose for the build will also help.

Thanks!! :-)

Forum Topic "Blue screen on new pc"

jakeSpot 1 Build 1 point 10 days ago

From your description, there is already power going into the GPU, so it shouldn't be a hardware issue.

The 6+2 power pin is an extra cable that allows you to plug in additional graphics cards and should not be in use right now, as you described.

For the first step in troubleshooting, I would suggest completely uninstalling the geforce drivers and seeing if the Microsoft-provided drivers crash as well.
