Forum Topic "Does Apple suck?"

powerpc platform

The test I linked was run on OS X El Capitan, which require more or less recent hardware.

As for the nanny

Well, you can buy a refurbished MBA for less than $400, or run a hackintosh if you prefer.

Forum Topic "Does Apple suck?"

jakeSpot 1 Build 4 points 2 days ago

Well, it really depends on what we're talking about here. In most situations, such as gaming, for an office job, etc.etc Windows really "out features" and "outperforms" Mac.

But if we're talking about high-end music/video production environments, lots of buyers are pushed to Mac. For example, DaVinci Resolve and other software is shown to have better performance (export/render times, playback responsiveness, etc) on similarly priced Windows hardware.

Also, for your nanny who just needs to browse the interwebs once in a while (and fall for a popup ad sometimes as well), MacOS just eliminates a few factors from the ground up that are security flaws on Windows. I understand that Mac's are not malware-free, though.

The physical panel in the monitor is only 1920 by 1080 pixels in dimension.

You cannot play at 1440 pixels due to the physical nature of the number of pixels in a 1080p monitor, unfortunately.

So sorry, I've been so busy this week :'O

You don't have to supersample anything to get the monitor running at 144Hz. Just set the monitor refresh rate to 144Hz on you shiny new rig with a 1080p monitor and it will run at that rate.

Forum Topic "My computer heats up and I don’t know what to do"

jakeSpot 1 Build 1 point 3 days ago

To clarify, is it the CPU? Or something on the motherboard (which I doubt, unfortunately)?

You can use your motherboard's BIOS to set up a custom fan curve if it's actually the CPU.

Eh, the prices are probably going to drop a bit when the 20 series come out, so I wouldn't mind waiting if the rumor they're coming out within this month is true.

Also, here's a compiled list of 1440p144Hz 27" monitors:

Cool! To clarify, you want an NVMe drive because they are fast? (They most commonly come in the m.2 key M form factor). I know this won't be very relevant, but here's a build $70 above your budget

  • Ryzen build; extra cores will help you with video encode/decode for streaming and editing performance in general
  • comes with a decent cooler
  • 8gb RAM, fast clock speed and low CAS
  • you have lots of storage, so I only included an NVMe SSD
  • 1060 3gb

Forum Topic "Got a new psu, still having random resets :("

jakeSpot 1 Build 1 point 8 days ago

Is there any dust in your system?

Also, as a wild chance, can you check these aspects of your hardware:

  • Your CPU or any other component is not overheating before the crash
  • Your CPU socket does not have bent pins (will require some effort to check)
  • Reseating the RAM, using one stick only
  • Any loose connections, whether it's CPU/mobo/GPU power to data cables

Forum Topic "Got a new psu, still having random resets :("

jakeSpot 1 Build 1 point 8 days ago

Huh, just sounds like a run of the mill power loss; probably not related to software.

You could try updating your BIOS, but I don't know how much it'll help.

For editing software, I use LightWorks. Feature filled even in the free version, relatively quick learning curve.

Forum Topic "Got a new psu, still having random resets :("

jakeSpot 1 Build 1 point 8 days ago

Hmm.. shouldn't be a problem at all, given the unlikely chance of a PSU double failure.

The next step I would try would be to check your system log after a crash to see if it's software related.

Forum Topic "New PC Build Boot Problems(HELP)"

Are all cables and the GPU plugged in firmly? Reseat your RAM as well.

To clarify, you have to clear the CMOS every morning now, or has it only happened once?

With an OS, here is a $400 gaming build: At this price point, I would seriously think about going with a prebuilt and throwing in a GPU.

If you already have a saved part list on PCPP, I would just look at that. Even the most accurate PSU calculators you can find online are within ~40W of the PCPP one.

Are you selling those components seperately? Do you know the part number of the Patriot RAM?

What's your total power draw, from a power supply calculator? Anywhere near 650w?

As a last resort, I would try updating the BIOS to see if that fixes anything.

Huh. Is anything touching the mobo that might make it short out? Cables, screws, etc.

Forum Topic "Literally know basically nothing about pc's and their parts and my awful attempt on making one"

jakeSpot 1 Build 1 point 8 days ago

Not too bad! Here are my thoughts:

  • Ryzen 5 2600 is a better choice with a 1080 (doesn't matter much, really)
  • Unless you are overclocking, the Ryzen stock cooler does a dandy job
  • Cheaper mobo
  • Faster clocked memory (you may want to consider 2x4gb instead of 2x8gb because of inflated RAM prices right now)
  • added an SSD, to store OS and commonly used programs on
  • better case
  • A 27" monitor is too big for 1080p, will show pixelation
  • full version of Windows (transferrable to your next mobo)

Does this also happen if you are not booted in the OS, but just doing nothing in the BIOS?

Forum Topic "My computer heats up and I don’t know what to do"

jakeSpot 1 Build 1 point 8 days ago

Try to use other temperature monitoring software that will give you more decisive names for temperature sensors. I personally like the UI of NZXT CAM.

I wouldn't trust speedfan as other users are also reporting an insanely high temp2 and temp3 with that software.

Give that a try a report back what specific components are reaching that temperature at idle.

Forum Topic "First build PC boot problem"

jakeSpot 1 Build 1 point 8 days ago

Have you tried with one stick of RAM only? Is that model of RAM on the motherboard manufacturer's official compatibility list?

(While you try that, remove all uneccesary PCI-e components such as your GPU and see if it will stay on)
