    svmlegacy got a reaction from IAmAndre in Original Xbox will not play games   
    XBOX's are getting up in age... if you have a model with one of the weaker drives, the laser may be wearing out. A stop gap is to adjust the laser bias, but that is only a bandaid.

    it depends on what you do really
    if you play the same game forever, then it'll be good forever
     
    personally still using an RX460 to play games occasionally on my secondary PC

    svmlegacy reacted to Theguywhobea in NZXT Vulcan, FINALLY   
    Hey guys, after what ended up being literal years of searching, I was finally able to find someone near by selling an NZXT Vulcan case. Personally I have a bit of a soft spot for this case as it's the one I took too and from my college dorm most of the time I was there. I foolishly sold that PC while I was in college and always regretted it after since I thought this was such a cool case.
     
    First post is just the case, however I hope to get a nice build going in here and maybe so some people how cool a case like this can be.

    Shunt mods trick the GPU into thinking it's drawing less power than it actually is.
    You can still drop the core clock or voltage if you want to lower power usage.

    Right, the bad part is I've run myself all these damn platforms also. Not really for daily, but for overclocking.
    I did find a validation actually I can link here.

    I sadly have no socket 754 hardware.  Have OCed it plenty though. Even one of the fast chips

    I'm coming at you live right now with a Socket 754 mobile machine. It was used for the 90nm chips, the generation before. In this case, a Turion 64 ML-30.

    svmlegacy reacted to Exigeous in Radiator - Top or Front???   
    Thanks for the links/videos - I think the answer here is to do my own tests and get some actual data. I'm just about to do a build with a 360mm radiator so I'll just do all 4 placements and report back with the actual data to see what's best. I would have never even considered top mount intake and while I've tested front intake vs. top exhaust (and front intake was 8-10C cooler on my last build) I'll add top intake next to see, as data is what I'm really looking for.

    Natural air convection will always be overcome with even the lowest fan speed setting, regardless of which direction you move the fan. There is no true difference in pushing heat up, down, left, right, front or back. This has already been tested

    These are good servers. I've got a bunch of them running infrastructure for work.
     
    I'm really tempted to grab one of the spares and see if I can get something working in one. there's no way to make these quiet though.

    should be fine as is, especially with a 660ti
    a 3770k is slightly better but again, not worth the upgrade unless it's super cheap

    svmlegacy got a reaction from Radium_Angel in (Long Shot) Mobo ID please?   
    The 3570K isn't a bad CPU. If you really need the extra power, You'll want the 3770 (if cheap), 3770K or 1270 V2/1275 V2. No real point in any other CPU as an upgrade.

    Nothing stops you from yeeting a GPU in there and gaming with it, but keep in mind that PCIe Power is going to be hard to get, and the fans will likely ramp to 100% when it's on, all the time.

    Not all of them are. Many with extreme edition twins are unlocked.
    For example: Xeon W3690 vs i7 EE 990X, the Xeon is reportedly unlocked.

    svmlegacy got a reaction from TofuHaroto in LLC Question   
    Higher mode gives more LLC. Watch your measured core voltages to deterine what's right for you. Too high LLC is really harsh on the chip during startups.

    svmlegacy reacted to TofuHaroto in Ryzen 3900x high temperatures HELP   
    your temps are more then fine, the jayz2cent video that says it idles at high voltages and that's why is hot, is wrong. these are high voltages and low current, and you may end up with higher voltage under load, clear the cmos and re set that under volt, nothing wrong with your cpu.

    don't appear to be having the issue anymore with stock speeds, had to shut the psu off to move it, seems good. would this indicate that docp is the issue and i would have to set it's speeds and timing manually? @svmlegacythanks in advance.

    You definitely don't need a Ryzen 9 for gaming, even with "future-proof" intentions. Stick to the R7.
