Got everything but my graphics card. (it hasn't arrived yet)

It's all in my case and screwed in and yadda yadda. We're just unsure about the wiring, pretty tedious. I was just gonna let my cousin come over and help, since he's already built one.

Hey Technology Board. When I was browsing porn on my Galaxy S5 I accidentally downloaded some porn to my gallery.

I deleted it but I feel like there's still some internal memory or something that I don't know about, maybe something that might restore it or it's simply not completely deleted.

My question is if there is something that could bring that stuff back? Like a recycle bin on a computer?
User avatar #24421 to #24417 - sannukas (4 hours ago) [-]
I don't think it's possible without a root. The file still might be in your download folder tho you should check that too.
User avatar #24422 to #24421 - UNIQUELOL (4 hours ago) [-]
How do I find that folder?
User avatar #24425 to #24422 - sannukas (4 hours ago) [-]
Use any file browser. You should also have a program called downloads pre-installed.
User avatar #24418 to #24417 - wotterpatch (4 hours ago) [-]
Are you afraid someone's going to bring it back or do you want to bring it back?
User avatar #24420 to #24418 - UNIQUELOL (4 hours ago) [-]
I'm afraid someone will somehow turn it up.
User avatar #24423 to #24420 - wotterpatch (4 hours ago) [-]
Then put a lock on your phone. But because it's flash memory, i don't think it's possible to recovered deleted data from it
User avatar #24424 to #24423 - UNIQUELOL (4 hours ago) [-]
Flash data?
User avatar #24426 to #24424 - wotterpatch (4 hours ago) [-]
A traditional, not dated hard drive stores data on a spinning disk. The data is only really erased once it's rewritten over. I'm pretty sure flash just deletes the data outright
User avatar #24427 to #24426 - UNIQUELOL (4 hours ago) [-]

Hey guys, what do you think of these two builds:
Intel I3 4130 3.4Ghz Quad Core
B85M USB3 Motherboard
8GB DDR3 Corsair 1600 RAM
500GB Sata2 HDD
DVD +/- 22x Writer
ATI 7770 1GB Graphics
User avatar #24390 to #24386 - kober ONLINE (10 hours ago) [-]
Pretty sure the i3-4130 is dual core.
User avatar #24392 to #24390 - sannukas (10 hours ago) [-]
It has 2 threads per core so most games and applications think it's quad core. but yeah, 2 physical cores.
User avatar #24395 to #24392 - kober ONLINE (10 hours ago) [-]
Indeed it feature hyperthreading, but I probably wouldn't consider my i7-4930k a duodecuple core CPU given the same means. Vendors listing an i3-4130 as quad core is rather misleading..
User avatar #24389 to #24386 - sannukas (10 hours ago) [-]
The one with HD 7770 is better in terms of gaming performance.
User avatar #24391 to #24389 - kuroyuri (10 hours ago) [-]
Alright, thanks a lot, in terms of gaming though would you add anything to it or change any parts?
User avatar #24393 to #24391 - sannukas (10 hours ago) [-]
Well the video card could use an upgrade because HD 7770 is almost 3 generations old by now and buying it new isn't worth it.
User avatar #24396 to #24393 - kuroyuri (10 hours ago) [-]
Do you think I would be able to add anything else too it, and will it be able to handle a bunch of games, mods and DLC's? Sorry for bothering you.
User avatar #24397 to #24396 - sannukas (10 hours ago) [-]
Well i could say processor, hdd, ram etc.. but that would increase the price.
But i would say that the hard drive could use an space upgrade, 500gb isn't that much in this day and age.
But if you want to play games then that video card definitely needs an upgrade, i have the same graphics card and it's that not great for newer games.
User avatar #24401 to #24397 - kuroyuri (10 hours ago) [-]
I had snagged the specs of a computer building website, they both priced in at around £300. I have £600 to work with and the site I snagged the specs off isn't as popular as others in my area. I'm really new to specs on computers so I have no idea how they work in conjunction to another.
Is there a build that you could recommend me too, by chance?
User avatar #24402 to #24401 - sannukas (10 hours ago) [-]
Do you want to build it yourself or what?
User avatar #24404 to #24402 - kuroyuri (10 hours ago) [-]
Honestly, not entirely too fussed either way.

Hey guys, me again.

Would there be a noticeable difference in performance between these two processorst? pcpartpicker.com/parts/compare/intel-cpu-bx80646i54440%2Cintel-cpu-bx80646i54690/
User avatar #24428 to #24385 - Fgner ONLINE (2 hours ago) [-]
Maybe a 10% difference on things that max-out the CPU.

I always say - get the best thing you can afford (that is overclocked-able). Better quality and will last longer before an upgrade is required.
User avatar #24412 to #24385 - voltkills (9 hours ago) [-]
no probably not
#24383 - anonymous (11 hours ago) [-]
I'm looking to upgrade from my Logitech K120 keyboard. Bought it when I first built my set-up, and think it's time I get a something new.

Budget is $40. I'm one for comfortable keys. Hate chiclet keyboards.

Yeah, saw that article today.
User avatar #24351 - sannukas (12/19/2014) [-]
Is it possible that different torrent programs drastically increase download speeds?
I switched to this program called Tribler and i've been pretty much getting my max download speeds on most of the torrens. With Utorrent and other programs i would be lucky to even get half of my max download speed.
User avatar #24352 to #24351 - istartedthewar ONLINE (12/19/2014) [-]
Even though from what I've read it shouldn't matter, that wasn't the case for me.
Using utorrent/bittorrent was terrible, got awful speeds.

WIth Vuze though I get the max speeds my internet is capable of. Also, I got the same results on my phone with Flud, it's a fantastic app.

I love vuze, even if does hog ram like a motherfucker and tries to download shit you don't want when you install it.
User avatar #24353 to #24352 - sannukas (12/19/2014) [-]
Yeah, that's what i've also read, that's why i asked.
I ran a test with BitTorrent and it maxed out at 3.2mb/s and started dropping after that. Tribler pretty much instantly went up to 11mb/s and stayed around there the whole time.
Using the same torrent file of course.

I'm going to format my PC and i have two questions:
I seperated my important files on D:/,will they get effected?
How long will this process take?
User avatar #24342 to #24339 - sannukas (12/19/2014) [-]
If you format your c drive then they won't be affected.
Formatting it self takes few seconds but re installing windows takes about 30minutes.
User avatar #24343 to #24342 - teratorn (12/19/2014) [-]
I also have another question if you please could answer. I added more disc space than i needed and i want to put it back to C: drive but i cant. Around 70-100 gigs
User avatar #24344 to #24343 - sannukas (12/19/2014) [-]
Wait what?
You made one drive into 2 drives?
User avatar #24346 to #24345 - sannukas (12/19/2014) [-]
Answer my question.
Do you have 2 separate physical drives or 1 physical drive made into 2 "virtual" drives?
User avatar #24347 to #24346 - teratorn (12/19/2014) [-]
2 seperate physical drives.
User avatar #24348 to #24347 - sannukas (12/19/2014) [-]
Then i don't understand how you would take space from one physical drive and add it to another one.
User avatar #24349 to #24348 - teratorn (12/19/2014) [-]
I think i messed up the answer. I'll just tell you what i did.
Computer>manage>Disc management>Shrink (C>Create new simple volume (D
User avatar #24350 to #24349 - sannukas (12/19/2014) [-]
Soooo it's not a physical drive?
Like do you have 2 hard drives in side your computer or not?
If not then formatting would wipe both of them. Unless D created a new partition, then you can select which partition you want to format.

So piratebay.se is still dead. Any other torrent sites any of you guys recommend?
User avatar #24430 to #24308 - Fgner ONLINE (1 hour ago) [-]
Use Kickass torrents. The old bay doesn't have comments or users or anything, the search also sucks. The .cr is apparently a scam or something. Don't trust it.
User avatar #24311 to #24308 - istartedthewar ONLINE (12/19/2014) [-]

So in a couple of months I'm moving out and building a PC.
Hows this?
Any ideas for improvement?
I plan on putting my OS on the SSD so I can boot faster.
User avatar #24336 to #24335 - lazaman (12/19/2014) [-]
I dun't like mx blue tho..
Ill ditch the keyboard and go with my own, but i like that monitor.
If I want to hook that up what type of cable should I use?
Because I don't think hdmi will output to 144hz
User avatar #24338 to #24336 - kober ONLINE (12/19/2014) [-]
Go with this one instead, then: pcpartpicker.com/part/corsair-keyboard-ch9000069na
Also, it comes with dual-link DVI, which is what you'd use to achieve 144Hz.
User avatar #24357 to #24338 - lazaman (12/19/2014) [-]
But its like 30 bucks more than the other one that I was gonna get.
Does this have any benefits to it?
User avatar #24359 to #24357 - kober ONLINE (12/19/2014) [-]
Corsair's mechanical keyboards lead the market for mechanical keyboards, with good reason. They're amongst the highest quality keyboards available (alongside Das), including software and internal hardware wise. It's also LED lit, but I suppose that's relative to your own tastes (although it does make night visibility significantly higher if you're not entirely confident with the location of some keys).
User avatar #24360 to #24359 - lazaman (12/19/2014) [-]
Ill replace the keyboard and my RAM.
But everything else isn't what I'm going for.
The i5 doesn't even have hyperthreading.
pcpartpicker.com/p/j3JbGX
I chose new ram, this stuff clocks 2400, but I will need to downclock it a bit, still cheaper than most other stuff.
Also you never answered my question.
What kind of cable do I need to output to 1080p ad 144hz.
User avatar #24361 to #24360 - kober ONLINE (12/19/2014) [-]
I suppose if the system is intended for hosting servers, rendering, or animation, you can benefit from the extra RAM and hyperthreading, otherwise it's silly in a gaming/media system, which my suggested was finely tuned towards. Nonetheless, I don't really know your intention with the system, but 90% of users don't have any professional application with their systems, so you can't really blame me for assuming.
Also, you shouldn't spend extra for higher frequency RAM; it provides no noticeable performance difference and tends to only provide a marginally better benchmark. $9.56/GB is pretty expensive for DDR3, as-well.
Allow me to quote myself from >>#24338: Also, it comes with dual-link DVI, which is what you'd use to achieve 144Hz.
User avatar #24362 to #24361 - lazaman (12/20/2014) [-]
Thanks.
Ill take your machine into consideration.
I know that higher clocked RAM makes almost no difference, and over 1866 you see no real benifits.
But 1866 is the better than 1600, so I want to get something like that.
this 2400 is cheaper than most 1866 so I figured I would spring for it.

Also, I know it's stupid, but I am going for a color scheme.
User avatar #24363 to #24362 - kober ONLINE (12/20/2014) [-]
Consider these: pcpartpicker.com/part/gskill-memory-f31866c10d16gsr or pcpartpicker.com/part/gskill-memory-f314900cl10d16gbxl
Color schemes aren't stupid at all! There's a reason why in my suggestion everything was black & red, since I figured that was the color scheme you were going for.
User avatar #24364 to #24363 - lazaman (12/20/2014) [-]
Considered.
I noticed that you suggested a twin frozr by msi.
Do you own one?
I keep reading about how it crashes, or the fans stop working.
User avatar #24365 to #24364 - kober ONLINE (12/20/2014) [-]
There is one in my household, yes, that has no such problems. sniffythebird also owns two of the 980 Twin Frozrs. If my memory serves correctly, the fans turn off at low load/temperatures because at that point there's little purpose for them to be on.
User avatar #24367 to #24365 - lazaman (12/20/2014) [-]
well I will certanly take it into consideration.
I have to choose between the frozr or the strix.
Both have attractive features and cost the exact same/
User avatar #24376 to #24367 - sniffythebird (21 hours ago) [-]
Both coolers are about as good temperature wise. I've heard the strix might be a bit queter, but MSI's 980's can OC pretty high (I got over 1500mhz core in some games without increasing voltage and zero artifacts). And with both cards overclocked and at full load, temps were only 65-77C and I couldn't hear any fan noise.

But in general STRIX and TF5 are both really good. I'd just go with whichever is available or the cheapest.
User avatar #24368 to #24367 - kober ONLINE (12/20/2014) [-]
Whilst I prefer ASUS to every other manufacturer 99% of the time, their STRIX 970 card lacks the performance and overclockability of its competitors, sadly.
User avatar #24310 to #24304 - reginleaf (12/19/2014) [-]
You won't need the thermal paste. The h100i comes with shin-etsu on it, which is really good quality as it is. I also got the H100i. Go online and look at the mounting instructions for it using rubber washers since it tends to come loose even if you install it properly.

I believe samsung ssds are supposed to be better quality. But this is pretty minor.

Other than that looks ok to me.
User avatar #24315 to #24310 - lazaman (12/19/2014) [-]
I'll check out some Samsung ssd's I guess.
I read only though that ssds don't really fail that easily.
pcpartpicker.com/part/samsung-internal-hard-drive-mz7te250bw hows this?
Its 27 dollars more, but its samsung and 10gb more.

Also I'm buying the thermal paste so in the future if I need to change it out I can.
I read that thermal paste shouldn't ever need to be changed, but its always better to be prepared.

also here is and updated one.
I swapped the evga gcard for an msi twin frozr, which I hear is better than the acx 2

and putting this in it -

and effectively making the best 450 dollar pc cost/performance ratio in a small form factor computer.

User avatar #24298 to #24266 - sannukas (12/19/2014) [-]
Why are you building this computer? That Pentium J isn't going to run any games and if you want a media pc then you should go with an APU.
User avatar #24277 to #24266 - reginleaf (12/19/2014) [-]
That computer's mobo doesn't have a pcie slot according to one of the reviews. Also can't say I recommend buying anything dell. And that processor looks weak.

You can build your own small form factor pc. HTPC cases are pretty damn small.

This is kind an alternative to reginleafs build.
His is good, but I put an amd cpu in this, so it has more cores and a slightly higher clock.
you will save like 10 bucks on this build to.
But if you like the case reginleaf chose, I would go with his, or put his case on this build.
User avatar #24288 to #24286 - reginleaf (12/19/2014) [-]
Don't use this. An A10 is an apu, it has a video card on board. The 750ti won't even be compatible.
User avatar #24291 to #24288 - lazaman (12/19/2014) [-]
Are you certain?
I wasn't aware of this.
I just checked, they will work, they just won't crossfire/sli.

But they're redundant. It will only use one gpu. And the A10 cpu is really bad value without its onboard r7.

How is it a poor value?
I'm a bit novice on CPU stuff.
Can you explain?

He's trying to say that if you're going with an AMD APU build then you should go with a graphics card that can run crossifre with it's APU.

Yeah I get it.
User avatar #24294 to #24293 - reginleaf (12/19/2014) [-]
You're paying for both an onboard video card and the processor itself, then using only the processor. How could that ever be good value?

An AMD FX series processor would perform better in every aspect (cpu-wise) for the same or less. The whole point of the A-series is the onboard video card to cut costs on a video card.
User avatar #24296 to #24294 - lazaman (12/19/2014) [-]
Oh I see you're point.
Yeah you're right.
But if I were buying the build, I would still go with the EVGA card instead of the MSI, just because of the 20 price difference.
User avatar #24301 to #24296 - reginleaf (12/19/2014) [-]
Or at least not the one I used.
User avatar #24300 to #24296 - reginleaf (12/19/2014) [-]
You used a non-htpc case though. That card wouldn't fit in an htpc.
User avatar #24307 to #24300 - lazaman (12/19/2014) [-]
I thought PC part picker filters that shit.
So you can't pick components that won't fit in eachother.

Or does it not have a case filter.
User avatar #24309 to #24307 - reginleaf (12/19/2014) [-]
It's cause you used a micro-atx case in your build and not an htpc. The htpc I picked out only has one compatible 750ti

I can try to build you something.
Give me a couple minutes.
500 bucks is probably what I can do for you minimum.
Im gonna use pcpart picker to compile all the parts.
Give me a minute.

What's your budget?
User avatar #24279 to #24278 - reginleaf (12/19/2014) [-]
Not at all. Building your own tends to be cheaper than buying one with equivalent parts. The misconception comes from the fact that a lot of builds you see online are top of the line enthusiast builds, or at least use much better components.
User avatar #24281 to #24279 - colegaleener ONLINE (12/19/2014) [-]
well, thats the thing too, I would build my own if I had like 1200 bucks because you could build a beast but at 450-500 there's not much you can do, and I won't get anything less powerful than a 750ti. that's the worst place to cheap out imo.
User avatar #24340 to #24282 - colegaleener ONLINE (12/19/2014) [-]
thats actually way cheaper than anything I could configure, and my sister's boyfriend works for a company with free windows 8 keys

That's a good build, but you can ditch the intel cpu and grab an amd and get more cores, plus a higher clock.
Remember, on low end builds, AMD > intel
But on high end intel is better.
User avatar #24287 to #24285 - reginleaf (12/19/2014) [-]
Not really. The amd builds win out with apus, but that assumes you're not getting a video card. I could try playing with it and going for an a10 7850k. Higher clocks only mean something between processors with similar designs. Plus intels tend to run cooler. More cores givesu 0 benefit for gaming since games only take advantage of a thread. Maybe 2.
User avatar #24289 to #24287 - lazaman (12/19/2014) [-]
True, but for most other applications the extra cores will help.
User avatar #24290 to #24289 - reginleaf (12/19/2014) [-]
Actually the build oyu linked has the same number of threading application as the i3, since the i3 has hyperthreading while the a10 only has 4 cores.
User avatar #24284 to #24282 - reginleaf (12/19/2014) [-]
This guy has 4 more gigabytes of ram than the dell (the dell had 4, modern games recommend 8, and some have a minimum requirement of 6) and a much better processor, while keeping the smallest form factor.
