Now, that would be interesting.

That moment when your case is worth way more than the actual pc...

That's a retro PC right there, probably time for a cheap upgrade. I bet even building a modern Celeron based system would be a massive boost over what you already have...

Yes and yes.

The holy bricks where for airflow, and they where just laying around.

Probably a lot... but I just used what I had laying around, so it was free.

It actually runs rather cool because of all the directional airflow.

"Windowed"

I was thinking about doing that some day. The problem is that it would be hard to make it structurally sound, and if I want it to be tower, finding a way to mount everything. If I want it to lie flat like a 4u server chassis however, that would be a bit easier.

I wish that I could have made the chassis much cleaner and more consistent colors... but you got to work with what you have...

Yes. Yes it can. With 8 chunk render distance, optifine optimizations, and fancy graphics, Its getting around 60fps when doing simple things and not moving around, and 20-25 when blowing stuff up and flying really fast.

This was originally my "Will it work" pc, and is now is a random secondary PC. If I were to upgrade the GPU, it would get hindered a bit by the CPU, and I would need to find a card true single slot cooler.

So in short, I don't think I will upgrade this computer any time soon.

I was afraid to manage the cables until I was sure the PC would work, and in case I needed to adjust anything... Also I don't have very many zip ties or velcro straps.

Its a GT 330 alright, check the last photo for details.

TBH, its the CPU that can't handel high 1440p+ youtube videos, as it is pegged at 100% when attempting playback.

The CPU came bundled with the Motherboard for $25, so depending on how you swing it, I did spend more on the fans than I did on the CPU...

Make sure that your monitor is connected to the video ports on your graphics card and not the video ports on your motherboard.

If the display is connected to your mobo, the PC is probably using your cpus terrible integrated graphics, and if you plug the display into your video card, the PC will use your high performance Nvidia Graphics.

Were you doing any overclocking?
Have you tried to reset the Bios on your motherboard?
What were you using the PC for before this issue happened?

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Zotac GTX 750Ti or GT 1030"

  • 32 months ago

I would not recommend buying the GT 1030, because it is about 80% slower than a 1050 for $10-20 cheaper. if you are really in a pinch, getting a used 750 ti would be the better option.

Don't buy the 1030 if you can avoid it.

If you can, choose a case that has alot of direct airflow for the GPUs, and download MSI afterburner, and crank the GPU fans to 70-100%, if you can deal with the crazy noise output. Your other option would be to lower the power limit of the cards with MSI afterburner. You can also carefully remove the backplate for the cards to open up some more airflow.

I would think that people that can pay $600+ on a cpu, can pay for beefy watercooling to oc their cpus... But if the cpus have a higher tdp, it might be because of the much higher core count than on the regular 4 core i7s.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Intel Core i9"

Seems legit... If intel were to release a core i9, it would confuse the intel product stack, confusing the i5-i7 lineup... But, it would sort of make sense for them to release the i7 extremes as their own product line but under a different brand than the core iX series...

I suppose the only recommendation is you could have installed the cpu cooler the other way up so that the cable could travel a shorter distance, and you could bunch up the bright cable, or put a bit of black heatshrink on it...

But apart from super nitpicking, this is a amazing office PC, and could easily be converted into a lan rig with the addition of a GTX 1050(ti). With Nvidia's amazing idle power savings (running the gpu at and vram at 202 MHz and 404 MHz Respectively) the system's idle power consumption would not be impacted all that much, or you could simply install the GPU when you need it and remove it when you don't.

But I'm assuming that you probably won't bother with office LAN gaming...

I have a 650W psu and my system only pulls 270W...

I thought that it would pull lot more power...
