    Build help for 3D art

    That's going to be pretty tough with a Z170 board. I'm not really familiar with the programs so I won't be able to put the best build together, but I'm pretty sure that anything with the Z170 will exceed your price limit.

    Is this build good enough for my needs??

    Looks fine, but could you send a PCPartPicker list? It seems a bit short of $1000, but that may just be my not knowing what prices are right now.
  3. Looks fine. I wouldn't necessarily say that liquid coolers are any easier to install than air coolers though (sometimes they can be more difficult). As for a monitor recommendation I would say the Dell S2716DG (1440p 144hz G-Sync). It sometimes has some banding issues, but it's a steal compared to similarly speced monitors. Not sure about availability in Europe however.

    So are you suggesting I switch for a RX570? Bit lost. Also... 1070 and 1440p144hz user here

    He's switched to 2x8 GB. Thanks for the tip about cutting to an RX570 if I need to.

    $600 PC Build

    @Bleed_4_Me @Taf the Ghost Thanks. I was on the fence about that one. I think I'll try to push for 2x8GB. Everything else looks good?

    $600 PC Build

    Building a $600 PC for one of my friends. I think this list is pretty solid, but I thought it would be good to run it by a forum. Some notes: He has a 500GB HDD from his old Alienware, so I'm just adding the 128GB SSD. Wanted for him to have a good case, so splurging a bit on the Phanteks. Not doing mail in rebates. Thanks in advance.

  8. So... after some in depth searching on the internet, I haven't found a single fitness tracker/smartwatch that fits what I want, so I'm appealing to the masses. Making this simple: Requirements: Waterproof (for swimming) At least basic swimming tracking, ideally lap/time tracking Tracking for other activities such as weight training/general gym stuff/hiking Google Fit sync Heart rate monitor decently small under $150, the cheaper the better but it needs to work well (still let me know if it's under $200, but that's the limit) That's it. GPS or a screen would be nice as well but that's really optional. The closest I've come is the Fitbit Flex 2, but that doesn't have Google Fit support. Thanks in advance.

    Random DC from Wifi

    @ZacoAttaco @Netivity Problem seems to be resolved by switching wifi from ac to n. Don't know why it worked, but it did.

    Random DC from Wifi

    I've uninstalled the antivirus completely. I have my DNS set to Google Public DNS. I still haven't run into it yet. I think I'm going to give it one more day.

    Okay so I changed my wifi thingy from ac to n, haven't crashed for 4 hours. Hoping...

    Random DC from Wifi

    I'm going to try 2 and 4. I don't really want to mess with the Windows registry if I don't have to. Usually after changing things it can take up to 2 hours to run into the problem, so I'll get back to you in a bit.

    Random DC from Wifi

    @ZacoAttaco @Netivity Update: I found the problem... sorta. When I crash, the error is a DNS error (1014) in Event Viewer. Any ideas? Windows has a support page for it but it doesn't have Windows 10 listed as one of the systems it affects. Could just be old, but... https://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/3336.event-id-1014-microsoft-windows-dns-client.aspx?PageIndex=2

    @ZacoAttaco @Netivity It hasn't happened yet today, I've been using my desktop for about an hour... so maybe it is something to do with thermals.
