Comment reply on Forum Topic "Most advantageous setup for 1 tb SSD+ 2 tb HDD??"

The boot drive+ mass storage is the easiest and gives very good gains.

Ssd caching gives diminishing returns with larger drives and is usually used with drives smaller than 120gb (which is getting rare)

using striped raid would be interesting, but overall a lot of utilities won't like using drives of different sizes. Software raid is more flexible, but in windows you'd be limited to the built in utility afaik.

Sound quality wise all of the clouds are the same. The difference is in the accesories that come with it

Performance isn't an issue

Note, this is a simple command line utility that does a few specific things. You'll have to do the legwork to get it to do what you want to do (via both batch and bash scripting)

You can use cygwin to install the linux utility rsync in windows, it won't eject the drive when it's finished or start automatically, but you should be able to make a script for that (if you can't, well, then bash is just useless, which is a good possibility)

It makes me sad that you can get a membrane keyboard for as much as a one with genuine cherry switches. Mech has gotten very cheap recently, there are even some in the $31-50 pricerange.

There are very few games that dissagree with an i3, but the ones that do there is very little you can do about it. Because of this I would suggest getting an rx 470 and making some room in the budget for an i5 6500 or something similar. You can turn down the graphics, but you can rarely turn down the game logic.

Blu ray drive? I don't need to read from them, that's what the backups are for :P

The only reason you'd need a blu ray drive for content creation is if you wanted to store old projects on disks, even then you can just use a usb disk drive for that.

If you put the case in first then go to choose a gfx card pcpp will automatically filter out the cards not compatible with your case, though it might be nice to have a manual filter anyway.

The two heatsync fans don't count as either as they do not move air into or out of your case. For positive pressure you need an extra intake fan.

The tab isn't really a big deal, but do make sure that the gfx card is seated well into the slot or it will cause problwms later. Just the screw is fine (the tab just tries to keep the card from becoming unseated)

Specifically, amd cards age better because of amd's driver strategy. amd relies on their cards doing things as spec'd while nvidia tries to squeze extra performance with game specific optimizations.in the next couple of years nvidia will move on to a new architecture and nvidia pascal cards will no longer be getting these updates.amd cards also tend to get better general performance as time goes on due to driver optimizations.

An rx 480 or gtx 1060 is what you need for 1080p ultra, an rx 470 will do well on high

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Subwoofer suggestions!"

  • 35 months ago

You'll occationally hear things about "matching timbre" and such, but in my experience as a speaker builder integration matters more than anything else. The typical crossover point for a subwoofer is 80 or 120hz, this isn't a terribly easy erea to mess up and active subwoofers are very flexible. As for the polk specifically, it gives you everything you need and has good specs for the price.

Note: since your speakers have a dedicated sub out they will likely have an active crossover already set, if this is the case your battle is half won and you can just set the sub's crossover at its highest frequency.

(Assuming.you have extra thermal paste) take off the cpu cooler and take a picture of how it spread on the cpu die, then link that on imgur or such. That way I can see how it was putting pressure on the cpu.

are both the pump and fans plugged into the motherboard?
check to see if your cooler is mounted securely

Why not use the newer lga 1151 platform?
that cpu cooler won't be any better than stock

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Computers and humidity/condensation"

It would take a good bit of water to actually do anything. The moisture forms in places that are cool and thermally conductive, so the first place it condences is the cpu and gpu coolers, then random exposed metal bits, then everywhere else. To actually cause damage you'd have to have enough condensation to get water to form on the metal bits and collect enough to drip to other metal bits. other than that any exposed materials aren't particularly reactive and won't be effected by such a short exposure.

You good, the metal "bars" are called heat pipes and are just part of the cooler (it's no suprise that they were the most effected by the moisture)
