Ik hoping to sell it fast. Looking to upgrade to the new x99 platform and don't need as big or powerful as a system as i have now. Also looking to invest in the apple watch and see if all the hype was worth it. Good deal to anyone looking to build a higher tier gaming/editing rig.

There may have been an id number on the microcenter sticker but the plastic case the ram came in has already been thrown away. I'm not too concerned with it. It's worked flawlessly thus far and was instantly recognized in the bios.

Currently the os and other important applications are stored on the ssd. However, in the next few days we will be adding a hard drive for extra storage as well as backups. In the future more hdd will be added for increased storage and backup and will be configured in a raid setup.

I'm not sure of its name brand ballistix by crucial or not. It came in a clear plastic case with no paper tags and the heat sinks are very small and don't have much writing on them. If I end up finding exactly what they are I'll update the build list.

Yea, but a lot of people will quickly look at the build list without reading the description and think "it doesn't need all this for an offoce build, -1 waste of money". So as to avoid that, I mentioned it plenty of times in the description for most to ignore. Thanks for reading it though :)

80 degrees is prime 95 pushing every thread to 100% load. Use above "idle" keeps temps below 50 degrees normally.

If got 2 sapphire r9 280x dual x cards im looking to sell. Paid well over $300 each, would sell for $300-$350 for the pair. Looking for a quick sale as i need the money. And if interested, i have kraken g10 coolers for both with corsair h75 water coolers i could throw in for an extra $100 total. So that would be 2 r9 280x's, 2 kraken g10's in red, and 2 corsair h75's for $400-$450 shipped.

It's kind of a rough question. Usually the lower priced amd chips are great for budget builds since they have better integrated graphics than Intel. But since your buying a dedicated graphics card, that becomes obsolete and beyond that, Intel really has the market cornered. Only problem is the price. Because of your budget, the 6300 will be a better option than a dual core Intel or an i3, but an i5 would deffinately be the better choice if your budget permitted.

The only things I would probably change or have put myself are a different water cooler (the h105/h110 if sticking with corsair), Asus x99 motherboard (Asus usually has better qc than asrock, mostly personal preference), corsair case (again personal preference, phanteks is good though), and a slightly higher wattage psu for future upgrades and over clocking.

It will run those games flawlessly on high settings. Just a note though, I haven't done any research into it, but I would make sure the majority of those games support sli. I'm almost positive bf4 does and far cry should, gta 5 might not be optimized well when it launches however.

Ill be honest, i have never really looked into this but from what i can imagine, it would be rather impossible. As far as i know, there is no third party maker for cellphone parts so the only parts you would be able to get are those from samsung, apple, HTC, etc. But then you would just be making one of their phones and not a custom one. HTC phone parts are not going to fit into a samsung nor an apple and vise versa. If someone has done this or knows a way to do so (other than making all the parts yourself) correct me.

It depends what your multitasking with. I never said 16 threads is good for light multitasking, i never even said i would for sure help. I clearly said "they may be a beneficial option for you". And "Again varies per user" and i even made sure i said "But for simply gaming, they are way overkill."

No, dropping down to ddr3 from ddr4 is not worth it. You will see the difference between ddr4 and drr3, not so much between dual channel and quad channel of at all. If all you can get is 4x4gb ddr4, stick with that. 16gb is plenty for most uses anyways.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Is 750w too much for a build estimated to only be 400~?"

  • 61 months ago
  • 1 point

Overclocking, adding more fans, adding another gpu, and adding more memory will all increase the wattage. So if you plan on upgrading and adding more to this build over time, a slightly higher than estimated wattage could be useful. In general i like to be around 100w above estimated. What i do is add more parts to my build list i think i might upgrade to later to see what the estimated wattage is.

The above mentioned for gaming only would be overkill, but for multitasking while gaming, they may be a beneficial option for you. Say you play games, while streaming, with a few webpages open, and maybe doing some light editing all at the same time. Again varies per user. But for simply gaming, they are way overkill.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "4x4gb or 2x8gb?"

  • 61 months ago

Some cpus only support dual channel while others quad channel. So 4x4 would run as two different sets of memory (in a dual channel setup) making 2x8 better. However, in quad, 4x4 is better. Actual noticeable differences may not be enough. So factor that into your build as well as the total ram slots you have. If you only have four slots and you want to upgrade later, you can always get 2x8 and get another set later. But if you have 4x4, its not as easy.

Wait...your looking for a motherboard simply because of the I/O shield that will be facing the back wall unseen and covered by the usb cables and input/ouput cables...??? God damn paint it or something. Or make it fit. Or make sure your case is compatible with the motherboard. I/O shields are made in "one size fits all" for their respective types (ATX, EATX, Mini ITX, Etc) and should fit. Make sure your installing it properly.

Remove the power cord from the psu and take it out of the case. Try to examine inside where the fan is to see if their is any interference. If you cant see anything, find something like a thin flat screwdriver and slowly rotate the fan manually and see if their is any resistance. You can also very carefully shake the psu to see if their are any loose objects inside.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "MSI Afterburner not detecting MSI 980 GPU?"

  • 61 months ago
  • 1 point

As it can be a common problem, have you checked to make sure you have the most up to date NON beta drivers for the 980? Also are you using the current version of afterburner? An older version could definitely cause an issue like this. I would recommend uninstalling and re installing afterburner. I havent looked at your build, but if you have integrated graphics (intel hd 4000 or similar) enable it, uninstall all drivers for the 980, and re install. Then disable the integrated again (do not uninstall the integrated). If you attempt this, make sure you ENABLE the integrated graphics, if their disabled and you uninstall the 980 drivers, it will complicate things.

Similar to pcnoobbuilder123's build below, however with some changes. I upgraded the monitor to a 144hz 1080p 1ms response time. Even at 1080p, 144hz monitors are amazing, you will never want to use 60hz monitors again. Also a couple other changes but nothing to major.

It is possible that the integrated graphics may not be able to handle it. However its unlikely as usually it will just down grade the game quality to run it. There are 2 things i can think of that may be causing this. Either a bad/corrupted driver or for some reason, the integrated graphics are disabled for that game.

To figure out exactly the issue, we need a little more info. 1- does it do this for other games besides WoW? 2- does it work for a little while then cut out?
