  • Biography
    Started with computers at the age of 6. An Atari 800XL with tapedeck. Then a C128, Amiga 500, Amiga 1200 (which I still own and care for, moved from the keyboard to a tower, 2 CPUs 1 FPU, 1 MMU, FastSCSI II, 2 CD Drives, 3 Harddrives, 10 megs ram). Then later switched to PC and windows/linux. Build my own firewall/router on linux and used it until it hardware died. Found a wife that was handy with computers as well, and who joined me in my online gaming hobby. We both were an awesome duo, but then 15. April of 2016 she died of a heart attack. Now I'm a solo camper again missing her very much. Else I still like to create computer builds for me/her, friends regarding budget and what it's used for to get most bang for the buck invested. Most times the systems I configure outperform more expensive ones. I like to use midrange hardware like GTX X60 versions, and on the intel side the I5, and then mostly using things, one generation old. Why that you may ask, if there isn't a change in the cpu socket type in the next one or two generations, you can easily upgrade. And to be honest, from the I5 3570k to the new I5 6600k the performance gain is measurable, but do you really feel it in the daily use?

    So that's for now =)

    PC Lag When Downloading

    that is normal behavior... you could try to use QOS if your router offer that and prioritise cs-go traffic... Many years ago, while 100 mbit was the shizz top speed in our student network I tried to explain the ip traffic like a stream of water... Have a hose with 99% of your availble waterflow shoot out the water, then attach another hose which puts out the left over 1% ... then try to make one stream with those two hoses... you'll see the lower stream will bounce off... On TCP/IP traffic the behavior is likewise... when you run a download that saturates your connection to for example 80% you see all other web traffic becoming sluggish, dns requests when surfing, initial loading of the webpages etc...

    PC Lag When Downloading

    the throughput... the big download is disturbing the cs-go game stream...

    One graphics 2 different motherboard.

    If both motherboards support the thunderbolt gfx card thingi like some laptops do, (they need a thunderbolt port) you could get an external gfx card pcie enclosure and just move the plug from one machine to the other... before. But then I think you should have at least onboard/cpu gfx to be able to install etc the external gpu.

    What does gas/petrol cost where you're located?

    95 Octane is the "low class fuel" around here ... the Super Plus would be 98 Octane...
  5. You want a Big Tower? Fractal Design Define XL R2 perhaps?

    Mic relaying headphone activity instead of mic input.

    without hands on I sadly can't tell you more.

    Query regarding copy speed of ssd

    That is the theoretical best case scenario. That also depends on the speed of your SATA controller on the Motherboard. It is a little like the internet providers with their "Speeds up to 100 mbit!" and you only get 20 but theoretically could get 100 mbit with the connection if it wasn't overbooked, or car spec sheets about their gas/mile usage ... I hate to tell you that. Just wanted to make a comparison for speed Here are two screenshots from a copy I made on my system... one is from one SSD to another (a MX500 500 gb to an older more used MX300 with 250 gb) the other form the 500 gb ssd onto itself. rest of the hardware specs below in the signature There you can see a big decrease in speed as soon as the cache is full...

    Query regarding copy speed of ssd

    at first it will write to a write cache, that is as fast as it gets, afterwards when that gets full you only have the raw real write speed of the ssd. Another thing, as SSDs fill up they get slower iirc it starts with a big decrease at around 80% and you are using the same drive from and to. so you got read IO and write IO, so no full write speed because of the read the same time on the same "disk" ... As for crystal disk mark, it tests the speed with different file/block sizes, (size of the data chunks to be read/written) and tells you the throughput in each sceanrio.

    SATA Connector laptop motherboard ?

    Ask the manufacturer support Best way to get the current piece you need or an answer like "don'T bother with 2 M.2 occupied the sata is turned off" (yes some devices do this)
  10. most everything fractal design

    Mic relaying headphone activity instead of mic input.

    in the sound settings change the input to the correct device. either in windows settings or for example if realtek audio in those.

    Are refurbed monitors worth it ?

    Refurbished is a little like the lottery... you may get the golden ticket and will have lots of worth for your spend bucks, or you'll grab into the toilet and get only grief. If you want to go for refubished, make sure it is a known seller and you get a warranty. For example here we have Alternate as seller that gives you a one year warranty on refurbished products they sell...

    Possible bottleneck

    A pity you can't get the EKL Alpenfoehn Gotthart anymore, alse I would have suggested that top blower for your system instead of the dark rock

    Possible bottleneck

    Like my current old build... I5 3750k at above 4 ghz and currently a 1060 still chews through all I throw at it.
  15. Anghammarad

    Possible bottleneck

    Either it will bottleneck the bottleneck so hard that the bottleneck gets bottlenecked, or it will work just fine. It depends on how you use it... But IMHO as long as you go above 4 ghz with the I5 you shouldn't have much issues... but yes the cpu will bottleneck the gfx card due to it being at near 2080 level of performance. But even an I7 or I9 will bottleneck... so personally when building a new rig I too would go for an I5 but not a 2070, only a 2060 if... ok I only run 1080p so that will be enough.
