  1. Recently did a massive PC upgrade, switching from my FX-6300 to a Ryzen 5 3600, and switching my boot drive from hard drive to m.2 ssd. I repeatedly got into issues reinstalling large games/apps on my now secondary hard drive, running into multiple disk write errors installing games on both Steam and the Windows Store. Doing my best to troubleshoot, I opened Windows' de-fragmenting tool and found a bunch of gibberish volumes. This was made extra confusing considering that those volumes don't appear appear in my disk management tool. Any help deleting these volumes would be greatly appreciated, as well as suggestions as to make my secondary hard drive more stable.
  2. Apex for me runs on a GTX 950 and FX 6300 runs at 720p@60 for me. Although there is this distressing bug that cuts my framerate by 10 FPS every time I restart in the middle of a race.
  3. 372.54 are the new "stable" drivers for Nvdia graphics cards. When you search for Windows 10 Nvdia drivers 372.54 is the only version that pops up.
  4. I just installed the new 372.54 drivers for my GTX 950 through the beta GeForce Experience, and it seems it to break both Overwatch and Minecraft upon opening. When I open Overwatch I just get hanged on a black screen for way too long, and Minecraft crashes upon opening with an error referring to old graphics drivers (Does the file below help?). If no one can help me with fixing my computer, I at least hope I can find a link to the previous driver. 2016-08-16-7.log.gz
  5. Since browsers are becoming more and more powerful, I'd believe that the companies that make them would want to prepare for the future. But seeing how the 32-Bit version is listed as the base version, I might see how I could've made the mistake earlier. Oh well, might as well make the upgrade now.
  6. Well, looking back at the task manager even Firefox is 32-Bit. I'm pretty sure that many use cases will require more than 4 GiB of RAM with any browser.
  7. Most of the applications I run are 32-Bit on my PC, despite it being 64-Bit.
  8. While I've been looking in the task manger to kill unhealthy applications, it's always pained to see a majority of applications run 32-Bit, especially the Nvidia back-end drivers. Just by looking at the task manager, current tasks like Nvidia Backend, Nvidia Network Service, all Apple applications, and 1Password run 32-Bit. The motherboard on my PC is terribly old, but Live Update 6 says I have the latest software installed besides Google things. And before I go, the part-list: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Rqqc3C
  9. Recently I've been incredibly annoyed with how I've been purchasing parts for my new build, as I've had to repurporse an extra hard drive and have now been wondering how to also use a 120 mm fan I shouldn't I got. As I learned in my previous post, the exhaust fan not included in my Xion XON-310_BK should be either 80 or 90 mm. I already purchased the exhaust fan though (A Cooler Master SickleFlow 69.7 CFM) so I wondered if it's even remotely safe to duck tape the fan on the grill so I won't have to return it. If this is safe, than it would also be good to know if I should edit any fan settings.
  10. I just started on my new PC build, but before I got started I would obviously want to get the case fans out of the way. Only one intake fan comes uninstalled, so I put that in at the front grill. While I'm waiting for my only exhaust fan, I need an idea of where to place the fan. The case doesn't come with a manual (Nor does there seem to be one on the Internet) so the only hope is the Internet. The case looks like this, and my current build is this: PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor ($102.33 @ Amazon) Thermal Compound: Cooler Master HTK-002 0.01g Thermal Paste ($2.89 @ OutletPC) Motherboard: MSI 760GMA-P34(FX) Micro ATX AM3+ Motherboard ($46.98 @ Newegg) Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($34.99 @ Newegg) Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($45.89 @ OutletPC) Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 950 2GB Superclocked+ ACX 2.0 Video Card ($147.99 @ NCIX US) Case: Xion XON-310_BK MicroATX Mid Tower Case ($26.99 @ Newegg) Power Supply: XFX XT 500W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply ($36.98 @ Newegg) Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 Home Full - USB (32/64-bit) ($104.99 @ SuperBiiz) Case Fan: Cooler Master SickleFlow 69.7 CFM 120mm Fan ($6.99 @ Directron) Monitor: AOC G2260VWQ6 75Hz 21.5" Monitor ($149.99 @ Best Buy) Keyboard: Cooler Master CM Storm Devastator Gaming Bundle Wired Gaming Keyboard w/Optical Mouse ($24.99 @ Newegg) Other: Xbox 360 Wired Controller ($28.06) Total: $760.06 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2016-03-24 08:51 EDT-0400
  11. Okay, after looking around all day, here's the build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/tcCr23 NOTE: Additional components such as OS and monitor weren't included in the budget, but it'd obviously be great to keep a budgeted focus in mind.
  12. So, I've been waiting forever to get approval for a PC build, and now I'm wondering how to streamline this build I found on PCPartPicker. Key things I wanted to go over included; Overclockabilty of the Intel Pentium G3258, and if it's ready for more CPU-intensive games such as XCOM And any other graphics card besides the GTX 950 2GB I was also wondering if I could get a 512GB hard drive, as I'm not expecting this to be my primary computer. And finally, it would also be incredibly helpful to link towards PC building tips/help guides, I'm really hoping to get this build ready!
