  1. The memory could be your problem: Memory Types DDR4-1866/2133, DDR3L-1333/1600 @ 1.35V The 6700 only supports upto DDR3 1600 - you have 1866 So you should probably just down clock your ram to 1600
  2. What speed is your memory? You say its DDR3 Is it low power? the 6700 only supports low power DDR3 RAM https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/88196/intel-core-i7-6700-processor-8m-cache-up-to-4-00-ghz.html Switch to DDR4
  3. Where are you looking??? Use PCPartPicker https://www.umart.com.au/ADATA-XPG-512GB-SX8200-Pro-M-2-NVMe-SSD_48561G.html?utm_source=au.pcpartpicker.com&utm_medium=Website&utm_content=&utm_campaign=commissionfactory&cfclick=e8bb8dd6523c4cc482aa221a33d1de3c SX8200 Pro is $115 in UMART 3500 read/3000 writes is quicker than the 970 evo - 3400 read / 2300 write Get the SX8200 it's a no brainer
  4. Can you tell me how Z390 is superior to x299 for gaming? Z390 limits PCIe lanes That's really about the only difference I can think of so why would he limit himself????
  5. OMG so much wrong with this.....where to begin..... Firstly is this from PCSPECIALIST as it sure looks like it??? Why the Z390 platform why not X299? 2x2080s why? Why not 1x2080ti? Why not 1x6TB HDD why 1x4TB and 1x2TB?????? Why 128GB M2 SATA based SSD? Why not at least a 256GB Samsung 970 evo NVMe drive? If you go with the 970 evo.......no need for 32GB Intel Optane (stupid idea anyway - completely pointless....) PSU probably slightly OP but meh go for it if you can afford it....
  6. Where are you and how much budget do you have? Have you considered an RX 570? They are way better than the 1050 Ti's and can be had for around the same price... https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-1050-Ti-vs-AMD-RX-570/3649vs3924
  7. Cooler Master GM750W which I've had since 2015 and have not had any problems with - until I installed my new GPU...
  8. Recently upgraded from a 290x to a sapphire pulse vega 56 GPU PC now randomly restarting - can be anywhere from 10 mins to 2 hours GPU temps low to mid 60 degrees under load Tried DDU to uninstall and reinstall latest drivers from AMD and hasn't made any difference. Specs in sig I suspect my PSU so have ordered one of these https://www.cclonline.com/product/260930/220-G3-1000-X3/Power-Supplies/EVGA-SuperNOVA-1000-G3-Power-Supply-1000W-/PSU1616/ Thoughts?
  9. Anyone know where I can find some replacement cables for my Lightning node pro? I'm in the UK Please don't say make one yourself I've looked everywhere These cables should only be a few quid a pop Closest I've found for the 9 pin USB motherboard header to mini usb B port: https://www.moddiy.com/products/USB-Internal-9%252dPin-to-Mini%252dUSB-Adapter-Cable-%2860cm%29.html I've not even come close to finding the 3 pin female to 3 pin female connector which must include something they refer to as "anti reverse" which are basically clips so they don't come out and click in place Pic of what I mean: Anyone got any spares they wish to sell? Thanks
  10. Good find that man! Yep it's hard to find decent cases in the UK that match up to what I'm looking for and within about a £50-80 budget. I've been looking for a good few weeks now and kept coming back to the kolink and the cit but I've just added your suggestion to my shortlist so cheers. BTW if you can think of any that aren't available in the UK let me know and I'll consider shipping it over from Newegg or somewhere...
  11. Yes I'm very picky, yes I know someone has recently asked this question: No none of the below suggested cases tickle my fancy Surely there are a few more out there? Phanteks Enthoo Pro M TG Fractal Design Define R6 Coolermaster MC500 be quiet! Pure Base 600 (not great airflow though) Thermaltake Core X31 ______________________________________________ Here's two I found that I kinda like.... Any more like these?

  12. Hi all, I need a basic laptop with a backlit keyboard because I use my laptop mostly at night when people in the house are asleep and I can't turn the lights on in the house so I'd like to have a laptop with a backlit keyboard but I'm having a hard time finding a cheap one... I don't need anything too amazing specs wise... but an i3 with a 1080p screen would be a good start and 14 - 15.6 inch 13 inch is too small 17 inch is too big and it needs to be quite light weight. Budget £400-£500 UK
  13. Hmm looks like just the kind of thing I'm after, my only question is does it simply sync data to an app? I just don't want to be in the position that I'm in now when my phone eventually does another update, or I have to factory reset, or if I change my phone to something else, I will lose all the tracked data? Ideally I need an account to upload the data to so its saved online permanently, unless I delete my account obviously.
  14. Hello I'm looking for either a smartwatch or some kind of wearable that will track my walks/jogs/runs distance travelled calories burnt number of steps taken etc etc but the most important thing to me is being able to upload the data to the web IE NOT to an app. The main reason for this is every time my phone does a software update the app loses its data or doesn't work properly until its uninstalled then reinstalled and I lose months of tracked data with no way to back it up. I've tried loads of apps LG, Huawei, Samsung. My phone (Axon 7) has a built in step tracker but it just displays the steps for the day and doesn't log them anywhere, so thats why I installed the tracking apps but Ive had issues with all of them. I need a dedicate device to track my steps and an online account of some sort to upload the data to so I can view it at my leisure.
  15. https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/72xKd6 Any issues with this? She doesn't need anything fancy. Any recommendations/modifications? Max £400 budget PS I've already got an SSD hence no storage needed...
  16. £600 on a GPU? Damn. Add another £200 and that's the total cost of my rig.
  17. Ask your self if you might want to have 2 GPUs in the future combined with an M.2 drive? I think you'll be fine if you want to do that on z170 but I made a mistake by going with z97 and now I'm limited to 1 GPU and my NVMe drive as z97 only has 16 total lanes. I should have gone with x99...
  18. Well if you believe this site: http://hwbench.com/vgas/radeon-rx-480-vs-geforce-gtx-780 The 480 is 28% better than the 780 so its up to you really.
  19. Looks like your in luck http://www.displayspecifications.com/en/comparison/6361388
  20. Depends how close you plan on sitting, but I've got a 24 inch 4k monitor paired with a 290x and it does quite well - as long as your not silly with your quality settings IE disable FSAA and hairworks etc etc. You should be fine as long as the TV is HDMI 2.0 to enable 60hz
  21. Check svchost.exe isn't misbehaving - We've had a lot of problems with high disk usage at my work and it was because on windows updates...
  22. Another 2GB RAM and an SSD and a rx 460 or something like that and you might be able to stretch another 2-3 years out of it.
