  2. For the PSU, ryte? Because diagnostics could be a problem since the other PC I have is a 2006 calculator...
  3. Just happened again, YAY! IS THIS THE PART WHERE I BURN DOWN MY HOUSE AND RUN TO ALASKA? Just the reboot this time, though - no cord wiggling
  4. From Wikipedia. If you don't live in any of these states then you're probably fine with ordering one from ebay
  5. So. I was just browsing the web and listening to WMP without any heavy if any at all tasks in the background when my PC just shut down as if there was a power outage, except it wasn't one because I have a TV running in the same room with me right now. As "shut down" I mean sudden power loss and blank screen rather than the nice and warm Windows' shutdown. 2s after that it just booted up again as if it had randomly decided to just spook me by restarting. So motherboard splash shows up, Windows loads and just at the moment when the Windows' logon screen is supposed to show it shuts down again. This time it doesn't boot up again by itself, in fact, it doesn't boot up at all - even when pressing the power button. I flipped the PSU's power switch to off and then again to on and wiggled the PSU cord, then the PC could be booted up and all went smooth and now I'm writing this. I built this whole PC fresh ~5 months ago. I have a Corsair RM650 PSU, i5-4670k non-OCed (it's a waste, I know), MSI Z97-G45, WD 1TB blue, 2xCrucial Tracers 4GB @ 1886 MHz (at which they're also rated). I think those are the parts that matter here, and it probably isn't an overheat because, as I said, I was on minimal load and the PC was on for only 2h. I also have 4x140mm and 2x120mm Corsair fans rigged in a balanced configuration, though I'm living on my stock CPU cooler. This is probably pointless but I just want to diagnose early if there's a problem. So, is there one? Or is just a phase?
  6. Nope, 'twas just a glitch in the Matrix. No idea why my free RAM is uncontrollably fluctuating between 200MB and 450MB.
  7. So I just created another profile/user account on my new Asus Transformer Pad TF103C (Android 4.4.2) and after setting it up (profiles, accounts etc. - not more apps or kitten pics) I noticed my free RAM had gone down from ~400MB to ~250MB caps. I'm not really sure if that's the cause so I came here... My hypothesis was that both accounts run the same/more apps separately and that's what's eating away at my performance, just wanted to check with people who (hopefully) know what they're talking about
  8. Thanks! Looks like I got it working following the video!
  9. Hi! So I recently built my first rig with the MSI R9 280 GPU. Also, some time ago while adventuring on le interwebz I think I came across someone trying to get physx on their AMD GPU. Most people suggested the slideshow-like CPU powered physx, but someone mentioned using a dedicated nvidia card just for the physx effects while the AMD was doing the rest of the work. Now, I've realized that my old PC is just gathering dust as I'm not getting another monitor and set of peripherals any time soon. The old rig has an Asus GT 440 DirectCU (http://www.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/ENGT440_DC_SLDI1GD3/) gpu and I'm wondering if I could just throw it into my new rig (MSI Z97-G45 mobo, 2xPCIe 3.0 slots at 8x/8x when used in CFX/SLI). So can anyone here walk me trough the process of setting that up? I'm pretty sure it's not as simple as just putting the card in the second 16x slot, installing drivers and enabling physx in the game (or is it? )... TL;DR How to make an nVidia GPU work with physx while a more powerful AMD card does the rest simultaneously?
  10. Just watched the 1m subscriber video and was like "Linus media community wot m8?". That means this is my first post Anyway, I found your channel this June. I was researching a PC case I was looking at. I was there just for the info. Some time later I was researching a CM PSU. So I ran into your channel again. Since I was bored, I just clicked your channel and decided to maybe find some other options for a PSU. Well, I found a lot more than that So I just subscribed, in case I needed some more info in the future. Seeing all those sexy GPU and MoBo thumbnails on my sub-list eventually got me intrigued enough to just watch the videos because I could. I was pretty surprised to realize that most reviews were sponsored and (unlike some other channels) you were professional and honest about the product. If it's awesome, you say it's awesome - if it sucks balls, you say it sucks balls. Now your videos help me keep up with all the new tech releases (along with Netlinked from NCIX). They're in-depth and yet straight-to-the-point with some comfortable puns where applicable. Okay, enough story time. If the giveaway is worldwide, I'm in!
