  1. As far as the CPU goes... with a noctua u14s for example you'll have a really hard time finding a water cooled solution that makes less noise, as the noctua really makes none at all. Water beats air when you're also cooling the GPU. Air is silent when the system is idle, water can be silent even when the system is under max load. Blower style air coolers stand no chance here... and even 3-slot coolers on the Asus matrix cards can be heard when under load.
  2. Blower in that scenario You generally don't want anything else in a small case.
  3. If it's heat and it only takes 5 seconds the cooler must have come off or something, shouldn't die in only 5 seconds otherwise. More like faulty vRAM, if it's the video card that's causing the problem. It sure sounds like it would be the card as that's the most recently added component, but you never know. First thing would really be to try with a different video card before troubleshooting anything else.
  4. As a rule of thumb you need 128bit per gig when running game-type applications. So a 3 GB card should have a 384 bit bus. This is why 4 GB cards with 256bit bus have got a hard time using much more than their normal 2 GB in games. It's also why the 6 GB Titan won't make use of 6 GB in games, it will hover around 3 GB. Question is if BF4 will make use of 3 GB of memory at 1920x1080. I've got no idea. Most games don't, but they did put 3 GB in the recommended specs. Usually 3 GB and the 384bit bus starts to shine in resolutions above 1080p.... or in heavily texture modded games.
  5. Using the front audio jacks? If so try plugging directly into the soundcard instead. Check so you don't have any other cables or other devices nearby that might cause interference. I recently experienced static coming from my logitech speakers used with my docked macbook pro. Turned out that an AC adapter had ended up too too close to the speaker cables, probably while cleaning. Moving the cables a few inches solved that problem. I've experienced similar issues in the past a few times.
  6. If you want to fix any problems with the pagefile (it can get corrupted) simply turn the pagefile off in Windows > reboot the machine > turn the pagefile back on > reboot the machine again.
  7. When waiting use the in-game wait feature.... get the simple mod "no boring wait/sleep menu" or whatever the exact name is, makes it a bit easier to wait for more than 24 in-game hours.
  8. Problem is that it can be so many different things. All from corrupted save file to various issues with mods.... or even a bugged quest. If it's mod related infinite loading screens are usually caused by graphical mods, such as heavy textures or LOD mods/tweaks. Lighting mods can also cause problems, especially with indoor locations. I've personally had the unofficial patch cause this problem for me in Whiterun once. If you're stuck you can also try using the COC command to warp somewhere else. Warping around can clear some buffer issues with areas, so that the area that didn't work is fine the next time you get there. Can go to the developers room for example, "coc qasmoke". Then coc back to somewhere else later. Another method that can solve this issue if it's caused by some corrupted cache, bugged NPC or whatever is to wait in game for 31 days so that everything gets reset (spawns, loot, general game scripts etc). Combo method is coc to the developers room, wait there until all of skyrim has reset, then coc back.
  9. Always take everything down to stock speeds when troubleshooting. Your overclocks can pass every stress test there is but still cause bluescreens for whatever reason. So just take things down to stock speeds until you've resolved the issue and can say for certain that it has nothing to do with your overclock. I had that boot error myself (same motherboard and cpu as you), out of the blue after a reboot. Had a broken boot sector and locked windows drive. It happened day 2 with my new build, not happened again since and I still don't know why it happened.
  10. Working in gloves is a pain the in the ass. Just use a wrist band.... placed around your ankle. When placed on your wrist it just gets in the way.
  11. Well then you just won't benefit from the vram and wider memory bus of the 7970 as much, it makes a lot more difference when gaming in higher resolutions. With a heavily texture modded Skyrim you'll probably still get more from the 7970 at 1200p though.
  12. If you're not playing above 1080p then it doesn't really matter. If you're playing in 1440p/1600p then get the 7970 Edit: on default overclock the Matrix is pretty much dead silent, might be worth keeping in mind.
  13. Had an Antec 1200. Current PC sits inside of a Lian Li PC-V2120X. I like the black monolith look, it's noise dampened and it has got wheels for moving it around.
  14. They pulled similar marketing rambling prior to the release of the PS3 and Xbox 360. Sure it can render something in 4k, but it won't be anything that looks good.
  15. The memory size is the mass of water trying to get through the tunnel. The bus is the width of the tunnel. The memory clock is the speed of the flow... or could call it water pressure I guess.
