  1. Well...I mean if it still lasts 5 mins or something (i.e. basically dead but not completely) then may as well keep it so if you accidentally unplug it, it won't auto turn off However if its completely dead then may as well just unplug it.
  2. Just wanted to say how your build got 'featured' by EK on facebook! Nonetheless, looks very clean! ...Actually maybe too clean...
  3. What PSU do you have? Can you try reinstalling your graphics drivers?
  4. Happy Birthday Linus!


    Ermmm...I guess there isn't going to be a giant thread like last year congratulating your birthday :P 

    1. Tech_Dreamer


      Ooh nice , haven't payed attention to it. Happy Birthday.

  5. ...

      But its white/silver...Meh need...


      Also, funny story, my 3 year old 2013 BW is still working completely fine so... :P 

    3. PCGuy_5960


      Their older products were better :P

      True true...cherry blues FTW! 


      Oh wait, cherry greens are better...ah well...

  6. So...does that mean that you've tried installing windows to see whether the drive is there or not? I had an issue with my X99-S motherboard where 3 out of 5 SSDs that were connected would not get detected in BIOS but were detected by windows so...
  7. Generally solder melts at 190C~ so... Try the 15W soldering iron that I accidentally bought...couldn't even melt 0.2mm solder!
  8. Yep, that would be perfect And yes, you could just buy an OEM key for windows 10 and it will work perfectly fine. Well generally for businesses, its not the best idea due to support and what not but I guess it depends on the business whether its a good idea or not.
  9. In a way I'd say the i3 would probably be a little overkill... I guess the problem is the Pentiums in those machines are 6.5 Watt TDP parts meaning the're just really overclocked tablet chips (which is also highlighted by the fact that they're braswell chips, not Haswell/Skylake/Kabylake). This means that overall, the pentiums are about half as quick as the i3 when all cores/threads are utilised but are 1/4 the speed during single core operations which is typically what desktop/basic productivity work involves. (source:[]=2784&cmp[]=2924 ) I guess, what you really want is a machine with what all older pentium/celeron would have been, an i3 without hyperthreading and lower clocks (and some instructions/cache missing). In other words, if possible, try and find a machine with Intel Celeron/Pentiums that are Gxxx (such as the celeron G3930) as they will be cheaper than the i3 but will be around 50% more powerful than that Pentium Jxxx CPU overall and 2.25~ times more powerful in single core tasks. Is the HP website being in INR not a big enough clue?
  10. Those PC really aren't great but I suspect you guys are probably on quite a tight budget so I guess it will do the trick? I mean it will do word and browsing fine however I can see it possibly struggling on larger excel documents, especially those ones with lots of calculations. Anyway, how much would a monitor cost? I guess just go with whatever is the cheapest as they are basically identical in specs... I guess if you'd like the desks to be less cluttered then an AIO would probably be more ideal however if easy maintenance and upgradablilty (both in terms of changing the machines to fixing/upgrading the current machines) is important, the tower would probably be the better option. Hope this is somewhat helpful
  11. Wouldn't the 8100 be more likely? I mean there are no FX chips named '8350K' however there is a FX chip named '8100'... AMD Finewine™ technologies on CPUs?
  12. To be fair, it was 13-14 months ago, where ETH was considerably different so that may have contributed to it
  13. They were, well reference boards/cards with 'custom' cooling, h75 on one and the accelero on the other
  14. Ah, get your point now and well you've answered your own question already... Cinebench is a benchmark that shows the raw horse power of a certain part, it was never design to show how something would perform in a real life scenario (to a certain point) so...
  15. When I did mine, I got mine hashing at 34 You do know that the 290X now matches if not out right beats the 780ti right? Ofc the 780 will be left in the dust, very very far back...
