  1. I have an OEM GTX 760 that has a cooler about the size of an intel stock CPU cooler. If I try to overclock it at all it hits 85 C in about 30 seconds. ;__;. ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つAMENO༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ also... "gibe nao pls."
  2. I don't think you understand. There was a physical button above the keyboard that indicated on as blue and off and orange. And was labeled as the WIFI toggle.
  3. What you have now for the GPU is probably fine. Pretty much anything below the 80-85 degree mark at max load is ok for a GPU. I like to keep it under 80 . Also, the lower RPM your fans are, the quieter, so why not. I strapped a CPU cooler onto my GPU because the one it had was really loud .
  4. A bottleneck won't damage your hardware, provided that you have adequate CPU cooling. The only issue that could arise would really be that the high CPU load would cause unpleasant temps with something like a stock cooler. Also, yeah that would probably explain the thermals
  5. Ah I see. This does seem like a bottleneck. I noticed your CPU is only a dual core, which can be an issue with some modern games. Also, even if it's not pinned at 100%, the CPU is still working pretty hard. When I play BF4, my CPU only gets up to about 40% load. That being said, I do have a very powerful CPU relative to my GPU.
  6. I'm not saying that there isn't a bottleneck. That is pretty apparent. However, I am saying that he could have other issues than a bottleneck. If his GPU is only at 60% load and reaching 75 degrees celsius, he may have some thermal issues, especially since his card's cooler is fairly beefy for a 960.
  7. Hmm. This does seem like a bottleneck case. Only 80fps seems quite low for a 960 at 768p. I personally have a GTX 760 and average at about 80 at 1080p (of course this could depend on what settings you play at.) Is it at all possible that this card is thermal throttling?
  8. whoah hold up! Let's get all the info before we start making conlusions!
  9. Ah! Yes my friend! This is what we would like to refer to as a "bottleneck" (as much as I hate that term and think it is WIDELY overused). First of all, what kind of cooler is on your 960, because 75 degrees celsius seems pretty hot for only 60% load. Second, how are you observing this? What program are you using? Are you seeing this on a second monitor or when you tab out of the game?
  10. I once spent like 30 minutes trying to explain to my grandma the difference between a computer and a monitor. She thought that the "white box" was the hard drive, and that it stored all of the data and that the "screen" (monitor) did the rest. She still, TO THIS DAY, calls the PC the hard drive and the monitor the computer. Also, one time a friend wouldn't stop bothering me about how his WIFI stopped working on his laptop, so I finally caved and said I'd take a look at it. I opened the laptop to see that the guy had pressed the WIFI disable (toggle) button is his keyboard, and that's why it wouldn't work.
  11. The parts list goes as follows: CPU Intel Core i7-3770 (3.4 GHz) Motherboard Asus P8B75M-LXPlus (LGA 1155, mATX, B75) RAM16GB G-Skill Ripjaws X (DDR3 1600 MHz) GPU Asus GTX 760 3GB OC'ed to 1014 MHz Case NZXT Source 210 Windowed Storage Samsung 840 EVO 250GB, Some 1TB 7200 RPM Drive (either WD or Seagate). PSU Corsair CX500 (500 watts) Cooling Raijintek Triton 140-blue (the new model, not the one that leaks everywhere) As you can see, the parts list is all over the board, and this build really doesn't make much sense. Much of this is due to upgrades that I made later down the line (For example, I received the water cooler as a Christmas gift). Since these parts don't really make sense together, I figured it would be hard to sell as a whole package. I have a few questions about this subject, however: (repeat) What is a rough estimate of how much I could expect to get for these parts? Do you think it would be better to part the system out and sell each component individually? Is it even worth selling the whole system and starting fresh, or should I just upgrade? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  12. Technology intensifies.

  13. I really like the Aria headset, especially for the look.
