It did work right out of the box for me, but you never know which bios version your board will have. So it is always smart to update them asap. Good luck!
You are correct. I think I look at star ratings different than you. I use star ratings for how the overall performance of that hard drive. Not the performance of that hard drive compared to others in its class. Does that make sense? I am using it completely wrong but that is how i use it.
I just thought that was common knowledge i guess
Load times on applications are effected.
Because it is not near my highest expectations for a spindle drive
The aftermarket cooler was a gift to him from me. I just wanted to make sure everything would stay cool. Also the PSU has already been replaced. I cant remember which one we upgraded to though. I think it was a corsair 400w semi modular. also given as a gift.
great build! i would go with the vg248qe if i were you. Then just downsample you 4k or 2k res. the refresh rate and response time as well as the gsync makes the difference.
You should leave it. I like MOB better anyway lol
"MOB" lol MOBO
I would go for the asus VG248QE
I own this monitor and it is stunning!
Has a Great Refresh rate and response time. Also works well with down sampling fro you 2k and 4k needs.
Great Build very clean. +1 Happy hunting
Dude I cant see this one either! Did your room mate steal this one too? Nice cables and cooling supplies btw. Neat monitor too
Hey aren't you supposed to take pictures of your computer? All i see is part of a monitor a keyboard and a nice desk.
Great build guy! Love the cable management, how are the temps? Great build
I got it because he will most likely never upgrade this thing, due to lack of knowledge of such things. With this in mind i wanted to get him something to last a while. I will need to help him when it comes time to get some more storage however. along with the 250 hdd he will also be receiving a 160 hdd and a 128 ssd. So with his level of gaming this will last him quite a while. thanks for the comment.
lol nvm I thought the title of this build was referencing a youtube series called baman and piderman.
Great build BTW very clean looking.
Remember this is a budget build and my buddy wanted better components over looks. I do not think you would want to do LEDs in this though because there is no side panel. Of course if this was my build I would have taken my dremel to this case and modded the crap out of it. thanks for the comment
Simple, I applied about three water drops size amounts directly on the center of the CPU and then placed the cooler on it. I will have to get back to you on actual temps, I took it apart so my buddy could have the experience of putting it together.
The temps will be acceptable though I know that for sure. I had the 6100 CPU with a stock cooler and was able to get it to 4.2Ghz. So I expect similar to better results with this 120mm cooler. hope this helps.
What happens when you eat all the potatoes?
I can always count on you tiny to point out the obvious flaws that are so easily missed. thank you so much for your insight and infinite wisdom.
Of course ;)
Thanks man. Yeah I know the PSU is not a looker but I need to stay in budget. I chose this budget one because I have used this same PSU for over 4 years with no issues in a previous build. So this should get my m8 off the ground at least.
Yeah I think my buddy will be okay with stock speeds. Plus the cooling in this system is below average I would say.
Had to take advantage of that out door over cast lighting. makes it harder to see the bad quality of my camera :P
thanks for the comment ;)
