  • Biography
    I'm geology student trying to get masters done in near future. I've been playing around computers since 2002 when we got new machine to replace old P2. My knowledge comes from reading tech magazines and from personal experience. Currently not able to game as much as previously. Daily games are Hearthstone (PC) and Heroes: Charge (Android)

  1. Under stress testing that 60-80C? Its pretty close to what I would call limit. And are your volts auto or manual?
  2. Do you have some database for these or just google every time? I researched several RAM heights when I was upgrading (and then went for cooler with no issues with RAM). But those heights are really hard to find for the most parts.
  3. Jumping over needless jibber-jabber. There are countless ways to set differences and similarities between the three major OS bases. Here's yet another and then I say my own opinion from using both Windows and Linux (Ubuntu). Windows is messy at core and you have to buy every major update (until Win10-ish). Its the only one you can buy and use on machine of your liking. Linux is name for core which is updated as single object. All flavors are completion of software and addons to core to make them almost different from each other, called distributions or distros. Linux is free and can also be used on machine of your liking. Mac OS is like Windows but it has been continuously updated for past years. Its part of hardware integration and you can't get it separately. Like with consoles, this has advantages like making it work smoothly with given hardware, even when hardware is seen underpowered compared to what free markets have. Main advantage Windows (still) has over Linux is software and games. While many already have Linux versions, there are still too much money involved to keep game developers and professional software makers happy with Windows and Mac OS. Two main advantes of Linux are free nature of it and less heavy on hardware. If you aren't so much into games, or don't mind bit tricky process to get games and software working, Linux is best choice.
  4. Probably not. You can select closest sensor. But AFAIK only software that allows GPU based curves is Speedfan. CAM and Link might too, but i don't have hardware to test and don't know anyone to verify.
  5. LMG uses Google Sheets. Excel is as good option. Or if you want to go more advanced, any database solution will do.
  6. Go to startup processes and disable Java Updater from there. Btw, next time more descriptive title and pic from task manager will help.
  7. For some reason low end first person sounds like first Doom or Wold 3D. Or even Duke Nukem 3D. Though if you are aiming for more like Legend of Grimrock (also indie game with sub 10-person dev team), that might work much better.
  8. He's right, it's technically not illegal in sense that there's no criminal charge for breaking contract. Valve has right to terminate account and ban user/s from their services. But at the moment thats about all they can do.
  9. I was remembering it being somewhat same with Fury and Savage RAM. But wasn't sure.
  10. No import fees either? And if not, you pay that back with $16 shipping fee.
  11. Try disconnecting everything but RAM and CPU. If you don't get anything, verify that PSU is working (unplug from PC and try starting it by itself). If PSU works, sadly only ways to check CPU and mobo is to test them with known to work CPU/mobo. If your mobo has LED for error codes, those would tell if RAM or CPU has issues. Just from not starting I would check PSU first.
  12. Ballistix Sport is low-ish profile RAM. It will fit under the fan.
  13. Case supports pretty much all air coolers. Check compatibility with your RAM too.
  14. Seeing that case if more for showcasing than actual use (even testbenches use targeted fans), I don't see much options for adding cooling. You can ghetto mount fans to blow over VRM heatspreaders, but that won't look pretty.
  15. Large table and good light.
