    Case fan setup

    When I did research for my case, I found the fan on the top of the case at the very back made more of a difference for CPU (AND GPU) temps than the bottom intake fan did.

    My first build

    It looks pretty clean. I'd just fix the cable management a bit lol.
  4. I ran my 8700K at stock speeds with the stock cooler from my i5 4690K for a few days before my AIO arrived. Wasn't the most quiet setup, but it worked. Cryorig C7 is great, or grab the H7 if you want a little more silence and better cooling. https://amzn.to/2UuPjXF
  5. Hi All, So got some new pieces this past black friday and been having a nightmare trying to get to get this to work last 10 days. I managed to put it together, get it to post and even get it to the bios screen, but when i try to install win10... it just freezes at the blue logo. I don't even get those spinning circles. I have taken apart and put back this setup multiple times to reseat, check for bent pins and stuff, and the same problem just keeps happening. Just the motherboard and cpu is new. All other pieces came from my previous build, working. Can anyone advise what the issue could be? Thanks.

    OP PC's and how they are NOT a scam.

    I would expect them to be able to figure it out.. I'm 35. I remember setting FSB with jumpers, boot orders on IDE drives with jumpers, etc. I mean the screen straight up says to plug in the PCI-E power cable to the graphics card, pull out phone, okay google, how do I plug in a PCI-E cable to a graphics card. I mean come on..

    Fake Chinese SD Card Scam!

    Remember when Norton wasn't a virus? Yeah.... the good ol' days. My old Mac OS 9 disk includes norton stock. How funny is that? Like freaking OS 9 would be targeted for viruses.

    Any games about which you feel nostalgic?

    The i5-8600k or the i5-8600

    Again, depends if you can get an overclocking board which IMO is well worth the cost.

    My rtx 2080 ti is not running like it should.

    I got a 1440p, 144hz monitor and an 8700k with msi z390 ace on the way. I'm gonna see if this fixes my issue.
  12. Ive got a b250 board and cant afford to/dont want to switch it out. Ive got a good deal on one currently anyways so it works out.
  13. Very stylish, I've got a white themed build going on so I think it will look nice.

    The i5-8600k or the i5-8600

    Then what should I do finally. Get the k or the non k?

    Can i run a VM?

    1. the gen of CPU doesn't support VT technology, you can still do it but it will be slow as fuck 2. some modern virtualization software like hyper-v won't run since a 64-bit Processor with Second Level Address Translation (SLAT) is required as it helps with the virtualization and SLAT didn't appear in CPU's until AMD's Opteron processors and Intel's Nehalem micro architecture with a Core i7, Core i5, Core i3 or Xeon processor that has SLAT in it... look here for a lift of software that supports it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_Level_Address_Translation#Support_in_software (VmwareESX is basically a server version of VMWare's virtualization software, so it counts) plus i don't recommend a dual core for anything modern, especially virtualization... if your motherboard supports the Core 2 Quad processors they are a good upgrade if you can't afford a new motherboard, they don't have SLAT but they will be able to handle the task better then the Core 2 Duo, but if you can try and get a more modern CPU like a 4th gen Intel processor (or a Ryzen, they can be cheap for what they have) or higher as anything older isn't worth putting in the effort...

    OP PC's and how they are NOT a scam.

    massive mark up by a company who is legally required to make its best effort to make money because it is a for profit corporation, is completely rational. Whats apples mark up on the iphone again?
  17. That's the complete opposite in the UK. You'd be paying 193 brexit money/327 CAD for the black/silver, and this time I did get the right price for the RAM.

    Case fan setup

    Hi I have a fractal design define xl r2 It comes with 3 140mm fans. I have put 2 at the front for intake, one at the rear for exhaust. Would it be a good idea to take a spare 120mm as bottom intake? I am air cooling a 8700k and 1070 Thanks for your advice

    New setup, back on the forum

    Very clean looking
  20. If I may ask, why that particular CPU? It's obsolete in several ways for the price.
  21. Anything but stock will do. Ranging from the L9i to the AR06, that C7 should be just fine, and stylish at that.
  22. i'm going to buy an i7 7700 and am planning on getting another cooler. I want a low profile cooler as I'm not a fan of the tower coolers and am not interested in water cooling. I want to get the Cryorig C7 but I dont know if that will be enough cuz im not sure how hot these usually run. What's reccomended? Are there any better options

    The i5-8600k or the i5-8600

    Woops, looks like I read the wrong section. It's been a long day.
  24. Depends what you're after really. RAM is kinda expensive but everything else is sort of middle ground really. If it's a Haswell i7 build or an AM4 Ryzen 5 build you'll still end up paying £800 at least for a good computer. That's 1,350 CAD.

    PC suddenly shuts down

    I bow to your vitriol.
