    weird problem

    Based of what I was able to find about Ocean of Games it seems to be a pretty sketchy site to download pirated games and typically viruses. I'd try leaving that uninstalled and acquire your games legally, and see if your issue persists.

    weird problem

    I agree.

    ...what is this?

    Looks like it's probably either some weird small form factor PSU, or some kind of supplementary PSU you could add to your rig if your main PSU couldn't power four GTX 280's or something like that.

    Hi! I'm looking for a gaming laptop cooling pad!

    Yeah I'm using it right now. The built in fans are not super great, but add some 120mm fans and a power supply and you can get a lot of cooling out of it. A less hacky way to boost the cooling output is to also just buy some 80mm or 120mm usb powered fans. I've used this cooler with some usb fans from AC Infinity and it was pretty effective.

    GTX 970 for PhysX? Too much?

    Probably sell it or use it for another build, there really aren't even that many games that use PhysX now a days anyways.
  7. Well those are both ITX cases and it looks like your board is mATX, so you're not off to a good start.

    Tempratures did not improve after upgrading CPU cooler

    You may be more limited by case airflow than your CPU cooler then.

    I have free electricity... What to mine?

    Your parents are going to catch on pretty quickly that you're just running your mining rig over night.

    CPU cant boot past 5.1GHz?

    No, you probably just reached the limit of your chip

    Laptop water cooling

    So you're saying just set the laptop on top of an aluminum box that's full of water?

    how do i set my 144hz monitor to display 144hz?

    No probably not.

    how do i set my 144hz monitor to display 144hz?

    Go down to PC settings instead of HD and Ultra HD. Choose 1080, and then you can set it to 144hz.
