  1. Oh, that's perfect. I'll pick up one of those sometime soon. Thank you! It's tempting but I just spent all my money on this GPU. I am getting a job soon so can I take you up on that in a few weeks or so?
  2. I'll give it a try. Thanks for the suggestion. Alright, if all else fail I'll resort to this.
  3. I can give it a try in a bit, best not to try it while it's already on.
  4. So I just got a GTX 770 for my computer. I really like it but it blocks the sata ports on my motherboard. I can work around it with a right angled sata cable but I only have one (although I can probably get another) and my motherboard has the sata ports arranged in a way that using another one will block off other sata ports and I'll be limited to around 2. (If you want to see what I mean, this is the motherboard I have https://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/mb/introduction.php?S_ID=312) Any way I can work around this? I only need two drives but I would like the option to use more.
  5. I'm not sure what I did but it booted. It works now.
  6. I built a PC with used parts off ebay, and I'm trying to install windows 10 on it. When I boot off the usb, it gets stuck at the windows logo. I have done a lot of research and have yet to find a solution to this. Anyone know how to fix it? My Specs: Core 2 Quad Q6600 biostar gf7100p-m7s 2x2GB 800mhz ddr2 memory EVGA GTX 770 SC
  7. So that pin was not bent, there was debris in the socket (which I did get out). Removing it did not fix it though. One of the other pins might be bent a bit but, I couldn't find any. Thanks though for pointing that out, I might have missed it otherwise. Anything else I can try?
  8. Looks okay to me, compare your results online (using the button of course) with benchmarks of similarly specced computers and if it's close, it's fine.
  9. It's just the angle. I checked, pin looks okay. I'll double check when I get home though
  10. So I have a motherboard I got off a friend and it's not working. I'm not sure what model it is but it has an LGA 775 socket (I'll attach a photo of it). When I got it, the clear CMOS jumper was bridged and the CMOS battery was upside down. After fixing those, I got fans to spin but it won't post. I've tried both a Core 2 Quad Q6600 and a Pentium E5300 and both give me the same result. I can't find the speaker jumper so I can't hear post codes. I want this board to work because the other one I have for my Q6600 behaves weirdly with dual channel memory. What else can I try?
  11. Yeah, I was definitely overreacting. Good to know that GPUs are much different from cpus in terms of safe temperatures
  12. Yeah, apparently those cards could run pretty hot. Wonder if the reason for that crappy cooler is because it didn’t need it much.
  13. Did some extra research and looks like the safe temperature for graphics cards is a bit higher than cpus. Looks like I’m stressing over nothing. Still though, thanks guys for the help edit: for anyone wondering, the maximum safe temperature for these cards is 122 degrees Celsius. I am not sure how accurate that is but I’ll link where I got my information. https://forums.evga.com/m/tm.aspx?m=608323&p=1
  14. If they’re that durable then I’ll attempt an overclock if I can get the temperatures low enough.
  15. Alright, I’ll look for a new one if it doesn’t survive the stress test. Thanks for your help.
  16. I’m just looking at options. If it’s for a really low price, it might be worth it. I don’t expect it to be though.
  17. Know of a place where I could buy a better cooler for it?
  18. Okay, I will definitely do that when I get home. Might also be a good idea to run a stress test to see the temperatures under load. Thanks for your help and thank you too @Thermosman
  19. So I scraped my dad’s old pc for parts and built a computer. I set up arch Linux on it and decided to use Nvidia’s proprietary drivers with the 8400 GS that was in there as they’re supposed to perform better than the nouveau ones. However, when I checked the thermal settings in the nvidia settings, I noticed it was running between 70 and 80 degrees Celsius. I shut down, let it sit for a few hours and started it back up and opened the nvidia settings again. It was still running at the same temperatures. Anyone know what’s going on and how I can fix these temperatures?
