Having CPU heat and fan speed issues.

>pic looks very much like what I have

GFX crapped out and ordered a new one along with some heat sink compound. I'm waiting for the new stuff and the GFX card to come in the mail so I thought I'd do spring cleaning. I'm using the last of my TM30 heat sink compound and applied that to my processor after cleaning it thoroughly and the heat sink.

Now, when i turn the comp on, it maxes out the fan speed and then shuts off, over and over.

Then, the core temps seem to be around 39 - 47 C as I type this out and nothing else going on. That seems high to me considering I was usually at ~31 with general internet browsing and no streaming.

That's it boys.
I'm sick of box modeling characters.
Pic related is my first sculpt from some YanSculpts tutorials a while back.
I've obscured how flawed it it with some dark lighting.

What are some good things to sculpt to practice. I feel like starting with humans may not be the best? Are there some other organic forms that you feel are better for grasping sculpting fundamentals? Is banging out human anatomy the way to go?

That's definitely a possibility. When moving towards more artistic areas of CG there does seem to be a natural talent cap. However I'm sure with enough practice anyone can get to a reasonable level of competency.

Computer problem. Need input.

Computer was acting up last week and crashed on me with graphics failures. Thought it was graphics card. Updated and continued on my way and today it crashed and corrupted my boot drive. That's a new one for me.

Reinstalled Windows 10 and re-installed my editing software. Decided to test things out. Now that things have cooled down and were up to date, I started up a game that caused the crash and hard drive errors. Crashed again. But this time I restarted before computer could go full retard.

Turned comp off, pulled the GFX card, and started up no problem but with the obvious "you don't have a graphics card" aesthetic.

Ok, it must be the card... But wait... There's more.

After ordering a new card and fucking with some settings, i started to see hesitations. Well, duh, I have no GPU to share the load. But it started to show the same signs as card failure. So I started the same game but reset all the graphics to default. Immediately shit started flickering. Not the light show and sparkles that you get with the GPU, but like 1/4 of the screen going all diagonal and flickering black.

Question: I know the mobo isn't capable of handling extreme graphics, and even on the lowest settings, it can still get rough. But would it flicker or just skip frames as though laggy? I don't have another comp to toss the card in to try it out, so how do I know it isn't mobo, memory, or CPU problems, and the GFX is just fine?

I can't start the computer with the GFX card in. It says the boot drive can't be read when I do. So to me, that's a card issue, but my old experience with mobo gaming is just laggy as hell crap graphics. Not flickering and corrupted visuals.

>> No.673150

How do I know my graphics card is the culprit of a major catastrophe and not the CPU, memory, or mobo?

>> No.673151

Try doing something basic like chrome with no graphics card and see if it fucks up again. If it does, it's probably the motherboard

>> No.673153

Chrome seems to work fine. I figured the game was an extreme, but in my past experiences, games just ran like ass, not full on glitchy.

>> No.673160

It would depend... If you actually have graphics integrated into your mobo then it is time for an upgrade. APUs (CPUs with integrated graphics chips) replaced mobo graphics like two decade ago. The only modern mobos with graphics chips are server boards and those chips struggle with even the most basic desktops; nevermind windows 10... Or gaming.

If you were actually referring to the integrated graphics of your CPU then you might need a new CPU. If the integrated graphics chip blew up then chances are there is some serious damage to the CPU as a whole... That said, CPUs are rare the original failure point. They are very, very robustly build pieces of hardware. If they break its usually because something else broke them and if something else broke them then something else is broken.

Now, if your CPU's integrated graphics is working fine for workloads that it is designed to handle then you might be safe... CPU integrated graphics use system ram. The weird flickering you experienced while trying to play your game might... MIGHT be caused by paging. If you have very little system ram and you try to load a lot of textures (like what happens while your playing a game) you're computer will start writing information in your ram to the computers harddrive. This is to free up system ram for active programs. However, if you push this feature too far it can swap vital information into the page file. This can result in very, very weird behavior.

Many programs running their graphics on a GPU will also use system ram if you cap out your GPU's graphics ram (this feature isn't universal though, some programs just crash). From what I understand, many 3D programs use this feature for obvious reasons (4k textures chew through graphics ram like warm butter). You may have even pushed your gpu to the point where it ate all your system ram as well; resulting in a vital bit of system memory being paged and crashing your computer.


>> No.673161

Nevermind, I really can't comment any more without knowing more about your exact hardware...

A couple suggestions though;
>don't.... DON'T plug your new graphics card into your computer until you know it isn't a hardware failure issue. It could very well fry the card and you're money will by lost; warranties don't cover damaged caused by the user's faulty hardware.
>if you have very limited resources on your computer try using a lighter OS. Ubuntu or Linux Mint are fairly easy to use, and they are a fraction of the resource hog that Windows 10 is. There are even ultra light options, but those take a lot of set up to use for anything other then graphical server management.
>if paging is the issue you'll want to buy a couple sticks of higher capacity ram. A lot of vidya games now will gobble up more than 8 gigs when running on an APU... Just buy some used ram off ebay, if money is an issue. Ram can break, but it is nearly as robust as your processor. Most people sell their ram on ebay because they just don't want it sitting in a drawer somewhere; not because its broken.

Alright /3/, let's try something for a change...


It's pretty simple: every day, we'll have a simple theme. Hand in an image of a model related to that theme in whatever renderer or engine of your choosing.... pic related. Feel free to be as direct or as abstract as you want when tackling said theme.

>How much effort should I put on it?

I am not your dad and you can do whatever you want in terms of workload. I urge you not to spend more than an hour or two on it (I did the OP image in like fifteen minutes and even that felt like too long). The point isn't to prepare the perfect portfolio piece that'll get you hired at Blizzard - it's to get your fingers stretching and those brain juices flowing.

>Can I critique whatever garbage people post here?

Yeah, but get ready to be called out and told to put your money where your mouth is. Again, I am not your dad and I can't stop you. On this board especially, I couldn't stop you even if I were.

>Can I ask questions here?
There is a questions thread. If you're curious about someone's render, quote the post and keep it short.

>Those themes are too simple and suck dick. Why isn't it X/Y/Z instead?

Let's try to keep it simple for a few days and see what happens. If the thread gains some traction and doesn't die on a shallow grave like most /3/ threads, maybe we could do a strawpoll with a few options instead.

The theme for tonight is chair. Have at it!

That looks really good in a lot of parts, by the way. The wood grain is maybe a bit weird and really popping off to me, but the glass looks great and the stuffing on the chairs is good too, the little fold details really help to sell it. I don't know if you used a high focal length on that camera, which makes this perspective look a little funky, but overall I think it looks quite good.

>> No.673159

Looks pretty professional to me, the carpets look great, you nailed the materials on that, the sofa, bed, pillows and curtains. The lighting seems quite neutral and natural, which gives the whole scene a nice, serene mood.

Some stuff looks off, you forgot to soften the edges on that brick that's holding the lamp thing. I also couldn't help but to notice that the roof above the bed seems more polished than the walls... not sure if intentional or not. The whole little sofa assembly front and center just feels off. The materials seem extreme, the stuffing looks far too aged and worn out, the cup looks like it's made out of chrome instead of ceramic, and the plate looks extremely flat.

It's still a really nice scene in other places, and I like all the cloth simulations you've done.

I'm giving up on skp, as easy as it is to make awesome hardsurface stuff the future for it is dismal and Trimble has no interest in moving into the future and accepting UVs.

I'm going to learn blender now. 2.8 seems as good a spot as any.

As I understand it, blender has many open source plugins similar to skp. Are there any must have architectual ones?

Last year if I had to swap, blender wasn't even on my radar. I had tried it before a few years ago. It was such a mess before 2.8 but now things actually seem to make sense.

I did look into modo but it's not good enough for architecture. It doesn't have a good alternative way to skp layout where as blender does.

Please understand that architecture =/= archvis. You may be able to sell a client an idea with a beautiful wacky design but good luck getting it built if it wasn't designed correctly from the ground up.

My post had nothing to do with the low cost of tools, but more about your artistic and technical proficiency to execute ALL the steps of the pipeline in a proper, high quality manner.

Even great 3D generalists aren't truly "do it all" artists; some people and tasks are more technical, while others are more artistic. For instance, you wouldn't expect a great lighting/rendering artist to be as skillful in rigging/skinning, for obvious reasons.

The "know it all, good at everything" candidates often have the shittiest resumes out there, because they're over confident that they can do everything.. when it fact they can barely make one thing past a pajeet beginner level.

And that's good because that's how you get better. Make a bunch of crappy models and analyze on what you can do next time or watch a tutorial related to what you are struggling with- if you can't pinpoint on what to work on, you can always post your stuff on polycount or here (don't use reddit because its the biggest hugbox in the world).
Fun is very important in getting gud, build a habit/discipline of making sure you are having at least a bit of fun. There will be times where you want to kill yourself because making good art is difficult and you'll have trouble of feeling that 'fun' again; so be sure to analyze your insights on how and why you feel fun. You don't have to be a genius or write an essay, writing 1 line of note is better than nothing.
