  1. i7-3770 on a Biostar TZ77B board with 4x4GB of DDR3, GTX970 on the main board. 1 TB WD Blue and a 120GB Kingston SSD. It hits a about 75C on the CPU and I've seen 80C on the GPU. The computer is in a hot room and I think it needs a lot of airflow.
  2. Hi all, I have a Rosewill Challenger case, I know not the best but it's what I've got. I'm looking to upgrade the fans in it to some nicer ones that can help keep the system a bit cooler. As I run the computer in a hot room, and I can't really move the computer. My motherboard only has 1 PWM header on it for the CPU Fan. It also has 2 SYS_FAN 3 pin headers located near the rear and front of the case. I can run a 120mm intake, and a 120mm exhaust fan. With a 140 mm top fan and another 120mm fan on my Cryorig H7. The case also supports 2 120 or 140 mm fans on the side panel, which I do plan to occupy. I've drawn this graphic in MS Paint to kind of illustrate what I think is a good setup. My next question is on fan control, how should I control these fans? Ideally I'd like to have it all automated. RGB isn't a factor in this. I have settled on a corsair ML120 for the CPU fan.
  3. I'd rather run the 140mm off of Molex as I already have molex fans in the case. I guess that's what'll do as the 140mm should be quieter at full tilt than the other ones. I'll just turn up my speakers.
  4. Looking at changing out my case fans for some new Corsairs. CPU would be using the 4 pin PWM header on the board with a Corsair ML120 Pro. While the front puller fan would be a 3 pin using the SYS_FAN1 header which is 3 pin, which would be using a Corsair AF120. Those are fine, my question is can I use a splitter on the SYS_FAN2 header to run a 120mm AF120 and a 140mm AF140. They have different maximum RPMs with the AF140 topping out at 1200 RPM, while the AF120 tops out at 1500 RPM. The amperage for the fans are .23A and .40A respectively. Can I just use a fan splitter for 3 pin fans off of the header? Thanks.
  5. Article 13 is exactly the same as the loss net neutrality just under the guise of copyright protection. https://www.gizmodo.com.au/2018/06/the-founding-fathers-of-the-internet-plead-with-eu-to-squash-its-bad-copyright-bill/ Look, yeah. The US has stripped the regulations. BUT, I have yet to see everything spiral into what people have been claiming. The companies know that right now it is politically untenable to put fast lanes in. That might change in the future but the amount of fear mongering in this thread is ridiculous. A second Civil War? Give me a break.
  6. Not a Nintendo Switch. I'm looking for a switch that can let me use one tower to run two very different sets of peripherals. I have a racing simulator setup with 3 screens on it. I want to be able to switch from that setup to a desktop setup on the fly. i.e: I finish playing a round of Asetto Corsa and I need to do actual work on my PC. So I want to be able to use a monitor on a desk with a keyboard and mouse and not have to worry about that monitor being like a fourth screen in the AMD eyefinity display group. Is there any sort of like HDMI/DVI switch I can use or something?
  7. Are, are you serious. The US being in a civil war is news to me. Calm down. Like, seriously. First off, yes. Net Neutrality is beaten by the FCC. But to call it dead is hilarious. Washington State just passed a Net Neutrality law. Second. If you think the US is destroyed you should check out this thing in Europe called Article 13. Maybe, just maybe you need to take break from the media.
  8. New Roadkill! These are often cut from rolls of the stuff to size, so that's why you'll see repeated buildings.
  9. Make sure the car is running, when the printer is on (standby mode or printing) otherwise that battery will be flat within a couple of hours.
  10. Wait, wait, so um, you got a warning that told you would be banned if you promoted a product again and then you turned around and started posting vulgar stuff? I'm not surprised you got yourself banned.
  11. I actually own an E46 330Ci (the C stands for coupe) and you seriously want the manual. The automatics in the E46 were weak, and have habit of failing and loosing reverse. Look up E46 cog of death for more info. If you're interested in the E46 go to a E46 forum like E46fanatics and start asking questions, there are guys on there who are very knowledgeable on the subject. Pic related: My E46
  12. How about the Lenovo Y series, like the Y900/700/500? http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/ideapad/y900-series/y900-17/ The sound out of these is supposed to be amazing.
  13. Thanks for the tip, a friend recommended the AIO but I found the Cooler Mastery Hyper 212 for less and it seems to have better reviews. I actually already did have an SSD in there already, an ADATA Premier 120 GB drive. I also picked the EVGA SC line instead of the Founder's Edition, also for less. I mentioned AutoCAD, but it actually looks like SW is going to be much more prevalent since I have a job in the Machine Shop here and I need SW more. Maybe I can find a cheap Quadro or Firepro card for sale around here.

  14. Hi all, This isn't my first rodeo building my own PC, I've done it a couple times before, but this is definitely a time when I think that I could use some advice. Currently, I'm studying engineering and we need SolidWorks as well as AutoCAD. My current laptop (A Lenovo Y700) is OK at running SolidWorks but, it has issues with crashing due the 960M that it's equipped with. So I'm looking at building a new ATX size PC, with enough power to run SolidWorks and be able to play DOOM. My preferred budget would be about $1000 USD, but I can go up to $1300 but it would be much more difficult to swing that price. I'm more partial to an Intel/Nvidia set up, but I could be convinced to get a Radeon card but I'm firm with the Intel aspect. I came up with a build on PCParts Picker but, I figured you fine people would know a bit more balanced build.
