  1. Personally I'd just change the case to something with more airflow and a nice window and get a good sticker with the FX logo to show off I'll always have a sweet spot for those FX series, can't help it.
  2. Go to Windows device manager > display adapters and right-click the Intel integrated graphics and click disable. That should force it to run on the Nvidia alone, then run the benchmark again. There should be a setting in Nvidia control panel somewhere to always use full performance (1650 card).
  3. What is Novabench? Never heard of it. Try Heaven/Valley/Superposition benchmark presets and look up the scores online. I think the benchmark didn't enable your gpu but instead ran on Intel integrated graphics.
  4. Did you try running a furmark or cinebench? Probably they will only spin above a certain temperature. 60°C is perfectly fine.
  5. JayzTwoCents has a video to address the power draw of EVGA cards. He tested an EVGA and MSI card and the EVGA would draw more than 100% power when set to 100% in software. When he set the EVGA card to 50%, it would draw around 75% power. The MSI card followed the percentages for power draw like it should. Try setting your power draw to maybe 60% and see how much watts it draws. Temperatures are also fine, I don't think you need to worry about those. On idle, is the fan turning on? For games, the TDP is not that much important, it's more the actual gpu usage and frequency.
  6. Are you talking about cpu or gpu? What temperatures are you seeing? What games are you playing? What is the idle temperature? Have you tried a stress test yet? (furmark/cinebench/...) We're missing a lot of information
  7. Yes, prices are going up again, however, you don't need to spend a fortune to get a good pc. If you want Windows 11 support, you could always turn towards the second hand market and find a Ryzen 2000 series or Intel 8000 series processor. If you're not going to overclock, you don't need to spend a lot on a board either. Second hand gpu's are still going for too much, so you'll have to decide for your own if that's worth it.
  8. No this will not work if you are outside your network. If you want your websites to be available outside your network you could always use a dynamic DNS service and port forwarding on your router. For example noip.org. You could advertise your website as dj_bacon1.noip.org and it would be forwarded to and dj_bacon2.noip.org to forward to That way you don't have to run your own DNS service inside your network but just a service to automatically update your public IP. You have to make sure the correct ports are forwarded on your modem/router and if it's pub
  9. Yes it is. You could run a DNS service on one or both of the servers and have your routers DHCP point to those DNS servers. Then if you get a DNS request for www.website2.com the DNS server will know the IP address as and return that website. An other option, though static, is to edit the hosts file on each pc in your network. https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/27350/beginner-geek-how-to-edit-your-hosts-file/
  10. If DRAM lights are on on the motherboard, remove your RAM and put in 1 stick only. If it works, turn it off and plug in the second one. If it doesn't work after the second, a BIOS reset was done by changing capacity. If it doesn't work, one of your sticks could be faulty.
  11. It's working as intended. If turbo annoys you, disable it in BIOS or edit your Windows power plan to set cpu at 99% of maximum frequency and minimum 0%. It's not being stressed on idle so it will turbo and not use much power. Once you stress the cpu, it will lower the clocks and stay within power limits.
  12. What is your exact model? Vostro 3578 is a family of models but there are different configurations available which indicate the exact type of model.
  13. Have you opened the laptop yet? You should also be able to find the exact specs in a datasheet on the Dell website for your model.
  14. You could try booting a live Linux USB (like Ubuntu) and when you click shutdown, see if it happens again. I've seen this once in the past where it would give a BSOD with no blue error code right after clicking shutdown and it would restart. You could also try BlueScreenView to see if there are any issues. Mine was related to a network driver.
  15. I'd definitely go with the 140W 3070 if it's graphical power you're after. If you can afford it however, you already mention the portability of the Asus is better since it's thinner. I also doubt it's going to use a huge power brick if it's only up to 100W for the gpu alone.
