  1. Okay but that wasn't really the topic. I was just asking if these HP motherboards use industry-standard connectors and are compatible with the power supplies on the market. Trying to upgrade a friend's PC.
  2. So a friend of mine is wondering if his HP Pre-Built can be upgraded but from what I can tell, the PSU is only 180w so a power supply upgrade is necessary. Even putting a 1050 (The card has to be pretty short due to the odd placing of the power connectors on the MOBO) in there would make CPU+GPU draw already 140W+. I've seen a couple of good deals on some PSUs on OfferUp, mostly some EVGA 80+ White PSUs, which are great for low-power systems. The only thing that I can see as a problem is if the power connectors on the HP motherboard aren't standard ones because HP has a reputation on using non-standard connectors on some of their hardware. The specific series of HP Pre-Built is the HP Pavilion 570 with a motherboard like this one: https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c05408562 Has anyone had experience with the Pavilion 570 series on when it comes to upgrading PSUs. Any insight would be great. Thank you.
  3. No. No more pictures. Yeah. Could be. There is a little product number sticker under the fan maybe I can look into that.
  4. So I was scrolling through OfferUp looking for a GPU that could be used as an upgrade for a prebuilt system and saw a post for a GTX 1050 that I can potentially snatch for a cheap price. But it said ASUS GTX 1050 and it has ASUS branding but I wasn't sure if it was a 1050. Seller added no description so I just wanna make sure this card is a 1050. It looks very bare and like an OEM model. Has anyone ever seen this particular ASUS GTX 1050?
  5. I'm saying that what if I wanted to do a clean install of Windows 10. You know, going to settings and doing the reinstall Windows 10. If I did that, would it wipe the drive of the storage and would I be able to reinstall fully activated onto an SSD.
  6. So I'm just planning a new build for a friend that can do light gaming for only $100. He doesn't need new parts just a decent pc. So my idea is to get a decent, cheap used pre-built PC (with Windows 10 activated already installed) that I can upgrade with a graphics card and maybe upgrade the PSU for cheap. I also want to maybe get a cheap $10 used SSD but my question is when re-installing Windows, would I lose the licensing or activation when wiping the HDD and reinstalling the OS on the SSD?
  7. So I'm starting to do PC and PC parts flipping. I'm planning to do another flip with a pre-built PC upgraded with a graphics card. Just a hypothetical situation. If I can get a PC with no storage so I could get my own, which storage should I choose? A used 128GB SSD for $15 or a used 500GB-750GB HDD for only $5. I'm thinking SSD for the storage but I also need to take into account that most old systems with 2nd gen Intel CPUs (which are the easiest to get) only support up to 300mb/s speeds and the storage is low if I'm trying to list the PC as a gaming PC. Which one would be the best option?
  8. I know this statement sounds kinda weird to state but I feel like I am the only one who prefers the look of Graphics Cards without a backplate and just have the bare black PCB? I mean I get the fact that backplates can at times give a little cooling to a few PCB components and a bit more rigidity but I just wanted to see if anyone shares my point of view. Anyone else on the forums that likes no backplate GPUs?
  9. So I have another potential PC Build customer that is looking for a PC to run his Minecraft Server. He didn't necessarily tell me how many players he plans to have on this server or what exact kind of server he is running but all I know is that he wants a PC to run it. I am gonna assume it is some sort of dedicated server so I estimate he will probably have, let's say 15 players on the server at the most. What kind of hardware will I need for this build. Since this is Minecraft, I assume the recommended requirements are pretty low but I also want to have the hardware be a little bit better than those recommended specs and be able to run other games or programs if needed. I was thinking a Quad-Core with decent amount of RAM. Anyone have any more specific suggestions? Thanks.
  10. I haven't tried to push my CPU too far but I from what I can see it can hit 4.1 stable and maybe 4.2 but I have been running 4.0Ghz to keep temps in check. At idle with no programs, the CPU was running at near 40 Degrees which is the main part that is alarming and at load it runs about 65-70 (Cinebench). The stock voltage is 1.137v. I have been using an ARCTIC FREEZER 33 Esports EDITION Cooler that I got from a family member but the fan clips are kind of broken and the heatsink is scratched. The AIO kind of is an aesthetic upgrade as well as the cooler didn't fit my color scheme and the paint scratches looked wack
  11. Ryzen 5 2600 overclocking The reviews are mostly just about a whole different product line and I am pretty sure this lineup is improving upon the previous product lines but yeah I see what you mean. I have also considered purchasing a beefier air cooler.
  12. So I really am limited to $50 for a CPU Cooler and I want to upgrade. Is this Enermax AIO a good deal for the money or should I move on to something else. I hear 120mm AIOs aren't worth it but I just want to get some confirmation of this fact with the forum members. The stated 320W+ TDP measurement makes this cooler looks pretty good but can't be too sure. By the way, the reviews are mostly for the Liqtech TR4. https://www.amazon.com/Enermax-LIQMAX-Performance-Liquid-ELC-LMR120S-BS/dp/B00QWZIN9W/ref=sr_1_1?crid=2FJQXH8ASBALP&keywords=enermax+liqmax+ii+120s&qid=1563383954&s=gateway&sprefix=Enermax+Liqmax+%2Caps%2C198&sr=8-1
  13. I'll just give this AIO as an example. https://www.amazon.com/Enermax-LIQMAX-Performance-Liquid-ELC-LMR120S-BS/dp/B00QWZIN9W/ref=sr_1_1?crid=2N42GR740R3O&keywords=enermax+liqmax+ii+120s&qid=1563317859&s=gateway&sprefix=enermax+liqmax%2Caps%2C207&sr=8-1
  14. So I have been thinking of upgrading to an AIO after making some money but I need to check compatibility with my other components. So assuming the AIO I get has two fans with a splitter to use one header and one cable for the pump, which headers should I use? My motherboard has two system fan headers and one cpu fan header. I plan to use the two fans with one of the system fan headers and the pump with the cpu fan header. Is this setup going to work properly or do I have to setup my fans and pump a different way. Thanks for any insight.
