  1. Hello guys, so I'm a university student and I'm using a lenovo y50-70. I'm facing somewhat of an issue daily, and that is the duration of the battery. I'm currently pulling at max 2hours and 15 mins on 1/4th of max brightness power saving mode and reduced voltage on the CPU. The original capacity of the battery is 54Wh and right now it's down to 36Wh. So of course i'm looking to replace it. The specs are Nominal 7.4V 7400mAh, and I'm looking for a higher capacity one but haven't been able to find one so far. Any information is helpful ! :) Thank you for your attention

    Lenovo Y50-70 Higher Capacity battery

    Alright mate if there's no other way I guess i'll stick to that plan :(. I kinda wished I could find a battery with the same output specs but with a higher capacity that would fit into the chassis Thank you for your answer

    Graphics card not displaying.

    Hello guys, so this morning I woke up turned on my computer and the screen didnt display anything. I have my graphics card, a R9 280 connected via HDMI to my Monitor. I switched the HDMI from my graphics card to the motherboards connector and I restarted the computer, went into the Bios to check if the motherboard recognized a graphics card on its PCIE and it didnt. The motherboard is an Asrock z77 extreme 4. My graphics card supports dual bios so i tried switching but nothing happened. I tried switching PCIE slots but the card still isnt recognized. Thanks for taking the time to read, your help is appreciated.

    The card is running but its not being recognized, it doesnt display anything and the motherboard doesnt see it on either of its PCIE slots.

    Is there a way to be sure? Appart from testing the card into another computer?
  9. Hello guys, there is a cheap deal for 8 gb or 2400 mhz ram, and i do wonder if i'll be able to get those speeds with my currents setup. ( i5 3470 + asrock z77 exterme 4)
  10. Thank you very much !
  11. So the only thing that affects the speed is the mobo and the memory controller on the cpu?

    i5 3470 + evo 212

    Hello guys, i recently bought a evo 212 cpu cooler and installed in on my i5 3470. With the stock cpu cooler undermax load, during cpu stress test i was reaching 60 degrees celcius. Now i've set the multiplier a bit higher to 39 and temps still reach 61-62 degrees is that normal, if not how to fix it?

    Okay thank you very much for your help, it was very appreciated. @Johannes_Lazor

    Okay thanks i'll try it as soon as i can. Shall i add another fan to have push and pull on the cpu cooler? @Johannes_Lazor

    i5 3470 + evo 212

    Well i use the mobos suite to control the fan speed and even when it runs at 1600 rpm which is the max i think for the stock fan of the Evo 212 it reaches the temps i said. I didn't use both pastes together. Shall i reinstall the cpu cooler and switch pastes?

    @Johannes_Lazor Did i do it correctly ?

    i5 3470 + evo 212

    I've already tried that, it doesn't change, cpu is idling at 32 degrees, i have 2 200 mm fans pulling air out of the top, 1 140 mm intake in the front and 1 120mm exhaust at the back, shall i change anything? The case is the Phantom 530 @Johannes_Lazor Sorry didn't know about the tagging system

    i5 3470 + evo 212

    No i didn't use the whole tube, i checked some sites and it said it was enough for 4 times, i've got plenty of it. Edit: i also happen to have some artic silver V shall i use that one instead or not?

    i5 3470 + evo 212

    I used the puddle in the middle method, well hmm hard to describe how much but i think it was enough

    i5 3470 + evo 212

    We used the same paste that came with the cpu cooler.
  21. Alexmograine

    i5 3470 + evo 212

    Well i just expected a bigger changes into the temps...
  22. Alexmograine

    i5 3470 + evo 212

    Ye i understand that, thing is i have plenty airflow going through the case,i've changed the case added more fans since i replaced the cpu cooler. When it was running the stock one the temps were 60-65. A friend of mine has a smaller case with less fans, same cpu cooler but on an i7 3770 and under load he only reaches 42 degrees. Any idea?

  24. Hello there, i'm about to upgrade my GPU and was hesitating. I wanted to buy something around 200 euros, got sights on a r9 280 from sapphire at 183 euros and a gtx 960 gigabyte at 200 euros. Was wondering which one would be the best, and if or maybe was it better to wait on the upcoming 3xx series.
  25. Alexmograine

    Buy an r9 280/ Gtx 960 or wait for the upcomming 3xx ?
