    I'd imagine a bean bag to be quite hot in summer. That said, it is a good idea. I want one.
    I recently finished my system. I call it the StealthRay.

    Are all your case fans PWM (4-pin)? If so, SpeedFan would be a good place to start... Otherwise, try getting a hardware fan controller...

    DigitalHermit reacted to thibauldz in Ghetto M-ATX to ATX Mod   
    So i got a Full ATX motherboard form a friend of mine but i have a M-ATX case. I am planning on doing a G5 mod until i can get my hand on one of those i make a few tweaks to my old case.  
    I know this might not be good for the parts, its temporary and kinda for fun. 

    The UGLY cheapass case. back from when I got it as a prebuild. 

    Im cutting away a part of the bottom since the new mobo will be taller

    Had to remove a foot. doesn't matter because all feet are going to be 'replaced'

    Safety First


    So I've cut the hole still need to file it a bit.

    The four new 'feet'  each about 8 cm long



    while mounting the 3th foot I noticed it would interfere with the motherboard.

    So I tried this, But that didn't work either....
    Then I found this. 

    If I cut away one side ill have a 90* aluminum piece.
    And it ended up looking like this (still had to remove the old solution)


    The finished product without hardware. 
    And with Hardware. (sorry for the utterly poor quality) 



    Oh god.......
    Sorry for the sometimes poor quality, My dslr is broken. 
    Hope you liked it. And again dont hate i know its not the proper way : constructive criticism only plz

    Using another PC, download the latest bios from the Asus website. Put it on a usb drive (refer to your manual to see the supported formatting). Go into the bios and there should be some options for loading the new bios from the usb drive. Refer to your manual for more specific steps.

    How much more raw power would an XBox One or a PS4 need to output 60fps? What about 1080p? See how well "next-gen" console gaming performance stacks up against a beastly PC graphics card, the... the GTX 480?...

    imo, get a better cooler, some good thermal paste, and make sure not to overdo the thermal paste or anything. Seemingly small things like that could potentially cause things like this.

    DigitalHermit reacted to MG2R in README: How to respond to a no POST or no power up situation   
    REMINDER: this thread is not to ask questions about your PC. Please create a NEW thread if you still have issues after going through this thread.
    So, you've put together your brand new, shining rig. You plug in the power cord and push the button. Nothing happens. What now? The answer depends on what is happening:
    The machine doesn't do anything. No beeps, LEDs or spinning fans.
    Check if your power cable is firmly plugged in on both ends (you would be surprised how many issues this resolves) Check if the power supply (PSU) has a button to cut the power to the machine. Check if this button is in the position denoted with ON or I Check if EVERY power cable is plugged in securely, reseat if necessary. Check if the power button is installed correctly (consult your motherboard manual) Try shorting out the pins you connect the power button to manually. If this powers on your system, you have a faulty power button. Check with a device of which you know that it works if the power outlet you're using is actually providing power. If this hasn't solved the problem, check if your PSU isn't dead. To do this, you can follow these steps:
    Unplug your power cord and/or flip the switch on the back of the PSU in the position denoted with OFF or 0 Unplug every connector coming from your PSU (this is very important) Using a bent paperclip, short out the green wire on the 24 pin header with any of the black wires, like so. If you have a PSU that shuts down its fan under low load, or a PSU that is fanless, connect something small like a hard drive to it. Plug in your power cord and/or flip the switch on the back of the PSU in the position denoted with ON or I If the PSU does NOT power on (the fan/hard drive you connected should start spinning) after following these steps, your PSU is in all likelyhood defective. Request an RMA.
    If the PSU DOES power on, then the problem is most likely your motherboard.
    The machine does power up, but my screen remains black (no POST).
    Make sure your BIOS version is compatible with the CPU generation you're trying to run in your motherboard, you can consult the manual or the manufacturer's website about this. Check if EVERY power cable is connected. Auxiliary power connectors included. Make sure the cable coming from your monitor is attached securely to the graphics card. Also make sure it is securely attached to the monitor itself. Make sure your PSU is powerful enough to power your complete system. Make sure your monitor works by testing it on a different computer. If you have both a dedicated GPU and an iGPU, try your monitor on both the outputs on the graphics cards as well as on the motherboard. Make sure all connectors and cables are plugged in securely, reseat if necessary. Make sure your RAM, CPU and GPU are plugged in securely, reseat if necessary. If the motherboard you're using has debug LEDs, check the error code and consult the motherboard manual to see what it means. If you have a debug speaker connected to the motherboard, note the beep sequence and consult the motherboard manual or this thread to see what it means. Try clearing your CMOS. Try booting your computer with only a motherboard, CPU and one stick of RAM attached (if you don't have an iGPU, plug in your GPU as well ;) ). Make sure your GPU works (if you have a dedicated one), try it in another computer. Make sure your RAM works, try it another computer. Make sure the RAM is compatible with your CPU and your motherboard.  
    If the PC still doesn't POST after this, create a new thread and, as explained here, post IN FULL DETAIL about your problem. Make sure you include the following:
    System configuration Troubleshooting steps you already did Any additional information that may be relevant.  
    Lastly, if you find any mistakes/grammatical errors, inaccuracies or missing steps in this post, please do post them in a comment so I can fix it.
    PS: @TheXDS has posted how you can do some more in depth checking of the internal circuitry of you PSU. The only thing you need is a multimeter or potentiometer (if you're oldschool :D).

    DigitalHermit reacted to SeanBond in Tropical Air Cooling   
    Ah my bad, I thought the question was for buiding a cool system. As far as keeping an existing system cool the only real thing you can do is change the location of where the pc sits and how fast your fan speeds are. Something else a little more extreme is buying high quality thermal paste and replacing the existing paste you have on your cpu and gpu but that might not help much.
