    Work Laptop

    Hi Guys Been asked some advice from a family member about a new laptop. Budget approx £600. Main functions will be Flight Radar, a quite heavy database program (ADU), family member is a plane spotter. A bit of music and general youtube viewing, emails all the usual things. I'm thinking a decent CPU but not sure on laptop tech as much as desktop, limited as my knowledge on that is. Current laptop is 9 years old so pretty much anything is an improvement

    Thread for Linus Tech Tips Video Suggestions

    The tech within professional high end security cameras has come along way In the last 5 years. I think you could easily make a bit of a series just on various CCTV products. NVRs, PoE, bandwith limitations, PoC, high end Analytical systems. In fact I’d really love to see you take apart a Davantis analytical server and hear your thoughts on its hardware and software capabilities.

    Compatible coolers

    Yes that done the trick! Thanks for the tip. Was a bit nerve racking removing the bracket on the back but I managed to not destroy the motherboard. Unlike the graphics card that I broke. I removed the fan and heatsink to de-dust it and it stopped working! Thank fully it was only a chep one. Got a new one on (cheap 2GB one) prime and the machine is spot on - sound wise now

    I didn’t think to check the back of the board I’ll check when I get home later cheers for the tip!

    Compatible coolers

    I have the following motherboard https://support.hp.com/gb-en/document/c04293944 and wanted to change the cooler so i purchased a Pure Rock Slim which says it fits an FM2+ Socket but it doesnt seem to fit on this board. IIts an AMD Processor and doesnt seem to have the surrounding part for the locking mechanism to clip onto. It seems like the intel bracket the cooler comes with lines up nicely with the holes but they arent screws so I couldnt get the cooler fitted in anyway. Am i missing something or can someone recommend a compatible cooler. TIA

    Sounds like pretty solid advice there. Ill check those prices in a couple weeks as you suggest. Cheers for all the advice!

    Ok reading up on bottle necks makes me think I'm better of selling the 1050ti and sticking with the existing GPU, I think it was an radeon 8570D something and using the 1050ti to fund the basic upgrades

    The cpu seems to run super hot 80-90C when doing barely anything so the new cooler should be a big improvement on running noise. The original fan is super loud. Getting the new psu for the PCIe connectors and may do as you suggest and leave the SSD. Looking at the chart I can't find the specific cpu in there but assuming it falls in the 6000 series AMD A8 6500 so think some minor bottlenecking is acceptable. Not looking to run AAA games at high quality. Think it will be mostly used for homework for the kids and maybe The Sims. Maybe upgrade wasn't the best term. Streamlining the current system and allowing use of a redundent part from my main build.

    Changing the motherboard seems unnecessary TBH. Not trying to make a great gaming pc. Mainly just looking to spend as minimal as possible to get a better pc for family member and utilise the redundant 1050Ti thinking new cpu cooler-pure rock slim £30 new 500w PSU - £25 as old one is only 180w and doesn’t have PCIe power. then maybe change to a 120 SSD for £25 think those is 3 three things alone will be such an improvement im learning loads about pc parts from this endeavour and am much less apprehensive about playing around with systems now.

    No the 1080ti is going in my gaming rig, Maximus X and i7-8700K. But im giving the 1050ti to my sister which is the rig im looking to do some budget upgrades on.

    HI So Im upgrading my new gaming rig to a 1080ti very soon and am giving my old 1050ti to my sister who I gave my old pc to. This got me thinking along with the video below that MAYBE i should upgrade some more components and see what I can do with the system. So the system is Motherboard= 2B17 (P0) CPU = AMD A8-6500 GPU =AMD Radeon HD 8570D (Being upgraded to a 1050ti HDD = 1TB So a big thing with this system is the fans are SO LOUD!!! Using Speccy I can see that the CPU is running between 65C and 70C Idle and when doing pretty much anything jumps to 85-90C. So i suspect I need to install some better form of cooling and put some new thermal paste on it. Both things ive not done before but am quite excited to try. What other upgrades do people think I should get? Is the CPU fine as is? Id like to achieve similar results to the below video.

    Would the founders edition 1080ti be a better purchase then the ones youve linked? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-1080-Ti-11GB-GDDR5X-Founders-Edition/264369076284?epid=24004633263&hash=item3d8d9ff83c:g:G-YAAOSwIsddCr~t There seems to be so many 1080ti options out there 3 fans, 2 fans etc etc

    GPU advice

    Not looking at that at the moment. Did have a play with MSI Afterburner but put it back to defaults. Not touched the CPU stuff. Im not to confident with that stuff yet so will be doiing a lot more research over time and will eventually do some minor overclocking.

    GPU advice

    Just thinking leave the existing 1050Ti in the system to drive the second monitor for youtube/excel/word etc. But if theres no benefit then I will just give it to my sister and upgrade hers to the 1050ti
