    SirWendall reacted to shutterrart in New Builder, asking for Advice   
    Hi, I am attempting to build my first computer.  I have been a mac user for years but am switching my whole photographer workflow over to windows.  I have limited knowledge on hardware, what I know if from youtube videos.  I have put together a build check ( https://pcpartpicker.com/list/GWwgqk ) which says the components should work together.  My big question is whether it is too much, just right, or not enough?  My workflow consists of running Lightroom, Photoshop and other Adobe CC programs, Nik Software, Macphun (which prob isn't on a pc, idk) and on1 software.  I am planning on getting into Video Editing but I know nothing about what programs to use let alone what they will require yet.  Any helpful advice is most welcome, thank you!

    That PC is going to be more than perfect for a number of years after building.
     
    With PC building, getting a PC that is either not enough or just right results in a bigger investment. As I say, spend more now to save later.
     
    If you need any tips on building, feel free to ask. I've built a few myself, and know the ins and outs of building.
     
    Hope this helps!

    I'd get a GTX 1080 off eBay. You can get them Open Box or Like New for less. Last I seen them they were at $530 to $600

    FX-6300 or i3-6100, unless you can wait for RyZen?

    If you just want a cheap fix, you can usually disable the CPU fan error in the BIOS settings.

    Guys I was retarded enough to buy 32 gb of ram in 4 sticks of 8 Gigs for an asus z270 motherboard. What do I do now, other than killing myself?

    SirWendall reacted to DoggyDogger in Q6600 will not boot with 2x4GB memory   
    Well, I just found out that the 2GB 1333Mhz stick underclocks itself to 1067Mhz... The motherboard works fine with the other cpu (e3400) it originally came with. That cpu did accept the 8GB 1333mhz in both slots...

    SirWendall reacted to Coombzy in How to download windows 10 onto a usb, and then onto a PC   
    I'm not entirely sure how this can be done easily on a mac, Microsoft themselves have a tool for downloading Windows 10 to USB but you need a Windows machine as its an EXE file. https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/software-download/windows10

    SirWendall reacted to RadiatingLight in 980ti @ 3440*1440   
    Why would you not directly support Nvidia again? just wondering.
     
    AMD is IMO the better company, and it's really awesome that they open-source their technologies, but NVidia makes good cards with solid performance.

    SirWendall reacted to kelvinhall05 in Working on a mini build!   
    Well if you picked the 1050 ti for the price, I would wait until an RX 470 goes on sale (you can buy one for around $150 with a MIR).

    I think I've pushed it as far as it'll go now
    If I push the core past +120MHz it downclocks my boost. Even though I'm watercooling I hit 1532HMZ (boosted) but if I OC higher the boosted MHz goes down. My memory is too touchy to play with.

    @Enderman In my case, the PSU was fine. I had it in my personal rig until Christmas and then swapped to an EVGA 750w.

    What about the motherboard itself? Does it support your specific RAM? Did you check the list for it?

    SirWendall reacted to eduard in i7 6700k OC advice   
    @Gonio If I set the multiplier to 47 with current voltage, it crashes when I start Cinebench.  Am thinking this particular one is not a good overclocker from what I've read.

    SirWendall reacted to ItsTheDuckAgain in 7700K or 7700K   
    I would buy the 7700K rather than the 7700K. The formentioned one will do much more squirrels per second compared to the rather slow 5.1 rural based MP4 streaming the other 7700K provides. With that being said, buying a wet towel and some lettuce might be a good idea when it comes to pricing of those CPU based hamsters.

    Been a fan of LinusTechTips for about a year now and I finally Decided to Share My PC Build, BUT It is all about what I got working
     
    First specs:
    Dell Optiplex 360
    750GB HDD
    4GB DDR2 Ram
    XFX R7 240(I know it sucks but I like it and it was all I could afford for gaming ;-;)
    Here is is...
     
    XEON X5450 - This mod converts LGA771 to LGA775, and the Optiplex I used worked with A02-A07 bios versions no custom Bios needed
     
    look up on ebay or amazon 771 to 775 sticker then follow YT vid
    You will have to cut the tabs that prevent you from installing the wrong CPU in the socket off
     
    WARNING: I will not be responsible if u bend a pin, I do not recommend this but I took my hand to fix my Pins and what do u know, It worked(btw my motherboard could have been dead)

    Part it out and sell the parts for the prices they sell on ebay for. Just what I would do to maximize the cash for a new build.
