I made the transition to a K70 RGB (sold my regular K70 to a friend).

This is glorious.
User avatar #36782 - slenderwolf (4 hours ago) [-]
I want to make the transition to the PC master race. I need a laptop for college and decided to pony out a few more shekels for something that can run some decent games. I know a desktop would be infinitely better, but I'm enlisting soon and by the time I get back everything will need replacing and if my brother had anything to do with it, it will be riddled with viruses.
I had my eye on this,
From the uneducated knowledge of a dirty console peon, the specs look pretty good, I compared them to the requirements for newer games and it looked like it would run most games. I don't need 60 fps or 4k resolution, I'm a console fag. The second I get back from the service I'll hit up my techy buddy and he'll custom build me a gaming rig.
User avatar #36783 to #36782 - sannukas (3 hours ago) [-]
So you have a 700 dollar budget?
User avatar #36784 to #36783 - slenderwolf (3 hours ago) [-]
I do now. I know I could make a gaming rig with about that, but I need a laptop and don't want both until after I get discharged.
User avatar #36788 to #36784 - sannukas (3 hours ago) [-]
www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834232576 this would be even better but it's slightly over 700.
User avatar #36791 to #36788 - slenderwolf (3 hours ago) [-]
Why would this be better? My buddy gave me a quick tech 101 course a while back. This one is an i5 and only has two cores.
User avatar #36792 to #36791 - sannukas (3 hours ago) [-]
It's better in terms of gaming performance. A 950M is much better at running games than 840M. But if you do play processor heavy games you might want to go with something else.
User avatar #36785 to #36784 - sannukas (3 hours ago) [-]
Yeah, i understand.
In terms of gaming performance it should be around the same as the other one.

Right so somehow I done goofed and ended up with a flash drive that's now formatted in RAW Not a clue how since I've not used it for a while. and I have some stuff on there that I would like to take off.

Is there any way/program that will let me access it without having to format?

If any version of linux that can be live booted that supports reading RAW format I could give that a try.

Problem with Webms and mp4s.
They only play when I right click and select play, and the controls don't work with the mouse even when they start playing.
The mouse is working fine, just for some reason won't work with videos on FJ.
This only started about 30 minutes ago.
My OS is Ubuntu 15.04 running Firefox 38.0
Also, for some reason, when this comes into effect, videos have multiple play buttons, a red one and a white one with a shadow over it.
Any help?

#36760 to #36740 - John Cena (16 hours ago) [-]
Thanks for that how well will that play games (i want it to last a while) and could you recommend a 3tb harddrive i have more than two used up on my current one and i want to transfer most stuff
User avatar #36762 to #36760 - kober ONLINE (15 hours ago) [-]
At 1080p, it'll play every game currently released you throw at it at highest possible settings.
The Seagate Barracuda 3TB will suffice for your purposes.

These are pretty good but i bet you could look and find a better deal.

keyboard: cm storm quickfire tk with red leds and red linear switches

mouse: logitech g402

mousepad: Steelseries qck
User avatar #36759 to #36738 - mondominiman (17 hours ago) [-]
The mousepad is just a regular pad. You can probably just use anything and the mouse will pick it up
User avatar #36773 to #36759 - CatHatMan (7 hours ago) [-]
The pad helps keep the skates on the mouse from getting scratched. It also doesn't fall apart in one week like other cheap pads.
User avatar #36774 to #36773 - mondominiman (7 hours ago) [-]
I have some cheap pads that I use, they seem to be working fine. Hell I remember using a printed sheet of paper when I was in need of a mousepad that turned out to work better than some name brand ones.
As for the mouse the G502 is better, looks better and has a cheaper price tag than the 402
#36776 to #36774 - CatHatMan (7 hours ago) [-]
Thats really weird the 402 should be cheaper but If he can get the 502 then that's a fine mouse. I also used paper when I didn't have a mousepad and that old mouse has some pretty sad skates now. Now I use a cool autographed qck+
User avatar #36777 to #36776 - mondominiman (6 hours ago) [-]
I thought so too so I double checked on other websites but nope, the 502 is like 30-40 bucks cheaper. I would never be able to use a signed mouse pad, wouldn't want to ruin it. Unless it was an unrelated one like Danny DeVito's autograph on a Left 4 dead one.
User avatar #36778 to #36777 - CatHatMan (6 hours ago) [-]
it's signed on the part of the pad I don't use and most people don't know who Minh Le is anyway.

How much do you think I could get out of this build?
Radeon HD 6870
AsRock 870 Extreme3 mobo
Phenom X4 965 BE
Gigabyte Triton
Seasonic 620W PSU
4 GBs DDR3 Ram

I built in 2011 so all the parts are pretty dated but it's still a pretty good pc for average use and some mid tier games. I built another one last year so I don't really use that one anymore and it's just gathering dust now in the closet. I figure I can sell it for some extra cash. My problem is I always try to at least break even with shit I sell and I know no one will pay that much these days so how much can I get for it now? What do you guys think
User avatar #36723 to #36722 - sannukas (07/03/2015) [-]
GPU - 50-70 bucks
HDD - 20?
Mobo - 30-40
CPU - 60-70
CASE - 10-20
PSU - 30?
RAM - 15
User avatar #36724 to #36723 - mondominiman (07/03/2015) [-]
Trying to sell it all together. Does 3-400 sound reasonable? Shit cost me like 600 w/o taxes when I first built it.
User avatar #36727 to #36724 - sannukas (07/03/2015) [-]
You can always try. If you throw enough buzzwords at it you could probably even sell it at 500.

#36713 - sniffythebird (07/03/2015) [-]
Quick question to any fellow multi monitor users:
Does your GPU stay at 3D clock speeds while on the desktop?

I've noticed mine stay at 1190mhz core (stock speed w/out GPU boost + factory OC) on the desktop. It could have happened after I swapped out one of my 1080p monitors for the new 4K monitor, which might be what's driving them higher.

Temps used to stay in the 25-30C range earlier, although it's summer and ambient temps are slightly higher now.
#36714 to #36713 - kober ONLINE (07/03/2015) [-]
Nope. I'm willing to imagine the 1440p and 2160p monitor would contribute, though.
#36715 to #36714 - sniffythebird (07/03/2015) [-]
Most likely. Speccy does show 500-something mhz, but from what I remember MSI AB has always shown correct clock speeds unless I install a new driver or enable/disable SLI while it's open (then all the numbers and readings are glitched out).

My room is kinda getting hotter than it should lately. 18C outside today and 22C in my room. Window is open too.

I have very low tolerance for heat
User avatar #36720 to #36715 - mondominiman (07/03/2015) [-]
Where the hell do you live that you consider 22C hot? Here that's considered a perfectly cool day, these days it's around 40+. Record high for these days honestly
User avatar #36721 to #36720 - sniffythebird (07/03/2015) [-]
20-ish isn't unusual in the summer, but I just can't stand it very well.

Cold on the other hand is no issue for me.
User avatar #36716 to #36715 - kober ONLINE (07/03/2015) [-]
Been anywhere between 27 C to 37 C where I'm from. A lil toasty. Fortunately, AC is a thing.
#36717 to #36716 - sniffythebird (07/03/2015) [-]
Shit, I'd melt at anything over 35C.

I'm sitting in a small, poorly ventilated room with this machine and I bet the monitors are outputting some heat too. If it gets as hot as last summer it'll be interesting to see how it goes if I game at full GPU load for a few hours.

I bet if I closed the window, fired up Folding@Home on full load for a day, I could get the room temp up in the high 30's.
User avatar #36697 - sannukas (07/03/2015) [-]
Thinking about ovening my old laptop that probably has a failed gpu.
How stupid is this idea?
User avatar #36706 to #36697 - kober ONLINE (07/03/2015) [-]
Are you going to oven the entire laptop? That would likely break it further.
If you intend to just bake the GPU/motherboard/etc. then you may have some success.
User avatar #36707 to #36706 - sannukas (07/03/2015) [-]
Yeah, motherboard. GPU seems to be soldered to it so i have no other choice.
I mean it's already dead and hasn't been booted up since 2009 so i have nothing to lose.
User avatar #36708 to #36707 - kober ONLINE (07/03/2015) [-]
Not an uncommon practice. I'd say go for it.
I've baked an 8600 GT once and got another few years' worth of life out of it.
Some people argue that the solder will produce toxic fumes when heated, but it's rather unlikely and has no actual evidence to suggest it would.
User avatar #36711 to #36708 - sannukas (07/03/2015) [-]
I wish i could get this fucking laptop open. Removed all the screws that i can and i still can't open it. It's like it's clued together.
User avatar #36709 to #36708 - CatHatMan (07/03/2015) [-]
See Kober knows about dat 8600m gt life. I only wish that was the reason my a1226 doesn't work.

Geforce go 7400
User avatar #36705 to #36701 - CatHatMan (07/03/2015) [-]
haven't heard of those failing. But the oven method was pretty popular for the 8600m gt which was so notorious for failing that apple even did free repairs for a while.

User avatar #36744 to #36686 - ytrellworld ONLINE (23 hours ago) [-]
The GIF is 7MB, waaaaaaaay past the 2MB limit. They don't play if it's above 2MB, so I can't comprehend how it works.
User avatar #36745 to #36744 - CatHatMan (23 hours ago) [-]
Probably an update. It's kind of stupid that they wouldn't support gifs over 2mb in the first place.
User avatar #36756 to #36745 - ytrellworld ONLINE (21 hours ago) [-]
It's not an update. There was no announcement.

And even when I try uploading a GIF over 2MB it doesn't work.
User avatar #36689 to #36686 - pokemonstheshiz (07/03/2015) [-]
last I knew, tumblr's limit on gifs is 1mb (ours is 10 I think)
which is why tumblr has all those shitty 1 second gifs for an entire sentence, they can't make a bigger one

They increased their limit if i remember correctly. They also allow videos now i think.

Hey guys I was having a little bit of an issue when I record CSGO. I havent changed my settings in Bandicam at all and it records other games just fine. I get the same framerate I normally would. In CSGO I get 180-250 FPS unlocked but when I record it drops to 90 and is not as smooth as I'd like it to be. What can I d to fix this? If there is any.
User avatar #36670 to #36643 - sannukas (07/03/2015) [-]
Why not use your graphics cards recorder? Both AMD and Nvidia have their own recording software that has a minimal performance hit.

Shadowplay also unless you have a 4k monitor i don't suggest playing csgo at 4k because it will blur everything

yea I've got 3 but 1 is on an AMD card. I'll have to deal with fullscreen for some time. It's only with CSGO that I really "need" this

it actually wasnt bad I did pretty well but imma just stick to what I normally play at cause the cursor was so small. I like it so far its just I press the button to record and nothing

My Sparkle PSU is dying, so I bought this.
How'd I do?
User avatar #36641 to #36634 - CatHatMan (07/03/2015) [-]
But what are you powering it with?
User avatar #36766 to #36641 - smokekusheveryday (11 hours ago) [-]
I have the same PSU and i bought just because why the fuck not.... i mean dual video cards i figured why not the extra beastly power besides gives me more power should i choose to upgrade my videocards

Kober your builds are fucking sexy i just needed to get that off my chest
you have some glorious cable management
User avatar #36770 to #36767 - kober ONLINE (10 hours ago) [-]
Cheers. I try.
As sniffythebird can attest to, cable management in the PC-V7 (or working with it in general) isn't the easiest thing.

Had lots of occasions where I had to take out a bunch of screws, to remove a plate, to reach a certain area of the case.

But the end result is always better than most other cases.
User avatar #36688 to #36687 - CatHatMan (07/03/2015) [-]
I can't even take a decent picture of mine. because the lights make the camera on the htc m8 lose its fucking shit.
User avatar #36690 to #36688 - kober ONLINE (07/03/2015) [-]
I guess it's a good thing I have a DSLR sitting around, then.
User avatar #36691 to #36690 - CatHatMan (07/03/2015) [-]
I'm not smart enough to benefit buying a nice camera so I am condemned to a life of bad pictures.

The "auto" option exists for people like yourself.
#36696 to #36694 - CatHatMan (07/03/2015) [-]
well the camera on my m8 just doesn't ever want to focus on shit. on this rare ocassion it let me take an okay picture of a spiderbro I found in the bathroom.

Not bad
EVGA PSUs are bae

I own an 850 G2 and won a 1050GS
User avatar #36638 to #36637 - kober ONLINE (07/03/2015) [-]
10 yr warranty, 85% 5 star reviews on newegg, 4% failure rate as opposed to 55% 5 star reviews and 10% failure rate on the Corsair HX1000i...
I think I made the right decision
User avatar #36639 to #36638 - wotterpatch (07/03/2015) [-]
No question about it.

EVGA PSUs are solid OEM units but with the highest end components EVGA can source.
And they're still cheaper than corsair units of lesser OEM and component quality

I've committed to water cooling

wish me luck

Make sure everything is airtight or else your entire PC will be destroyed
User avatar #36719 to #36718 - wotterpatch (07/03/2015) [-]
not if you leak test properly ;)

Hopefully it shouldnt come to that though

Good Luck Starfox 64

what parts are you going to put in the loop?
User avatar #36635 to #36633 - wotterpatch (07/03/2015) [-]
It's gonna be CPU only at first, until i can either A) Get a cheap 290x lightning block or B) upgrade my GPU and get a block for it immediatley
User avatar #36640 to #36635 - CatHatMan (07/03/2015) [-]
Well that sounds nice. My case is not very liquid friendly but a custom liquid cooling loop is on my computer bucket list.
MY friend has kind of a cool one here
User avatar #36642 to #36640 - wotterpatch (07/03/2015) [-]
Holy mother of overkill radiators
A single CPU and single GPU probably don't need a 360x360 lol
#36644 to #36642 - CatHatMan (07/03/2015) [-]
well I think he planned on adding stuff to it but he hasn't needed anything more than his single 670 #justcounterstrikethings

Don't forget any o-rings on your fittings.
User avatar #36636 to #36632 - wotterpatch (07/03/2015) [-]
They're barrow fittings, they have the O-ring on them to begin with.

If you don't know what barrow is, they're just unbranded bitspower for 1/10th the price
User avatar #36629 to #36628 - dafuqisdisshit (07/02/2015) [-]
good luck with that. I cant wait till I'm able to.

Getting problems with my computer and am not sure what is going on. It keeps crashing things like chrome and tells me my driver stopped responding and restarted. Sometrimes the screen acts up and random squares of colors appear. Videos and gifs get checkerboarded.... and eventually cause it to bluescreen with a watchdog violation. I know my nvidia driver and all my stuff are compatible with windows 8 yes I use windows 8, fuck you I like it as I bought it together and it worked fine up until now. It is obviously a problem with the video card or nvidia but I am unsure as of how to fix it or even what to google to look for it.
User avatar #36630 to #36627 - dafuqisdisshit (07/02/2015) [-]
it's prolly an issue with your graphics card. I havent had an issue so far with Nvidia drivers and win 8. Check it up with the manufacturer and see if you have a warranty on it and send it in.
User avatar #36645 to #36630 - snipys ONLINE (07/03/2015) [-]
I just tried pushing it in a bit more and making sure the wires are all hooked up fine. seems to be better so far.
User avatar #36648 to #36645 - dafuqisdisshit (07/03/2015) [-]
that would be a problem. the card not being plugged in all the way. It's good that it all worked out.

somthings really wrong with my windows but ive got no idea what the fuck is going on, often when i close or minimze somthing the animation starts but gets stuck, then im left with pic related, slightly blurred windows i cant interact with, close, move or do anything to, they stay for like 5 mins then go away, what the hell. cant wait for windows 10 now.
