Ok, since /wsr/ seems to be a dead board I'll ask here then.

I just bought a R9 380.

My onboard audio was working just fine until I plugged my new monitor with the HDMI cable. Now it doesn't work even without my monitor conected (I have two, the other one is through DVI-I). Windows is detecting my headset, it shows that it is responding to sounds, but the sound itself isn't outputting.

please, send help.

Need some help, so I finished my build, everything works but I quickly found I was getting consistant, like every 30 seconds, fps drops. And I mean significant drops, like 12 FPS.

This is an ITX build using 6600K, 3000mhz DDR4 16GB, 970GTX, 450W SFX PSU and a Gigabyte Gaming 5 1151 board.

So I open afterburner, crank up the power limit percentage to 110% and seems to be fine now. Thermals are fine, like 76C GPU 45C CPU before and after.

Does this mean I should have sprung for a 650W PSU? Will this become an issue down the line?

Only takes up one slot on the PSU as opposed to the two normal 6+2 connectors take up

So further testing, upping the power limit didnt actually help, so I decided maybe it IS the PSU entirely. Before going full drastic and disassembling the build, I tried using the PCI power cables from my last atx build. Works flawlessly. So I guess faulty cables or maybe I bent them too far?

Hey, I'm the guy with the crazy spec request from the thread from this morning.

Well, there IS the i7-6900K, but I wasn't aware that i7 doesn't have 8-core MOBILE processors.

>Yes, it's fucking retarded. What you should do is get a regular desktop that you can remote into, and then a nice lightweight laptop to carry around.
Well, remoting is not the point. Carrying the power is the point.
It's not just having the power available, it's having the power THERE (especially when travelling and the internet is shit)

>I had a great portable computer setup for you, but it's only 6 core, and it's ugly Intel so it's probably "tuned for Windows"
Oh well
Well, 8-THREAD COULD work. On the other hand:

>... Or, alternatively, realize that these minimum requirements of yours are utterly retarded, and go with a mobile workstation like the Lenovo P50 or P70.
Looked at this. The P70 would actually be a good option. It almost covers what I was hoping for, and I suppose I could always partition the drives, anyway for multi-boot
It also says I could change the optical drive for an extra hard drive. That's not bad. I CAN always get a USB optical drive.

The only thing I'm concerned about for this is the cores and frequency of the "6th Gen Xeon Mobile Processor".
3GHz is necessary, but I can OC the processor. If it's like 2.5 or something with OC to like 3.1-3.2, that's fine.

64GB RAM would work fine. That's more than the minimum

It seems like it'd work, and it's a HELL of a lot cheaper than I was anticipating at only about $1800. I was looking for something between $3-10K
>At least I hadn't even begun to anticipate that I could get one for under $3K
So, that's a major plus. Although, if there's one more in line with my original specs for maybe $5-7K, that'd be fantastic.
$5-7K was kinda my original estimate for a machine like this

Help me fellow fat/g/uys, I'm looking for a new case for my pc upgrade, basically what I want is something clean looking, with good sound dampening, atx form factor, and at least one 5.25 inch bay.
The cases I'm currently looking at are the define r5/r4 the silent base 600 or possibly enthoo pro m.
Primarily I'm looking to upgrade because my current case a gx500 has a tendency to pick up vibrations and work like a sound box on a string instrument making the whole thing loud as hell.
Considering that, the silent base one might be best, but are there any reasons not to pick it and go for something else?

What kind of gpu to cpu price ratio should I be looking to spend for a mid level gaming pc?
2:1? 3:1? 1:1?

>> No.56646750

Depends on if you are going for optimal price performance ratio today or if you want a processor that you can continue to use for longer. Say a skylake i3 you could easily go 2:1 or even 3:1 on your gpu:cpu cost ratio, but with a 6600k you could likely use that could again for another 2 gpu upgrade cycles (or maybe more if cpu tech continues to devlop at a crawl) in which case it's a much closer ratio. The former has better cost ratio today, but the later may end up cheaper in the long run.

I was using both the front jack panel and wireless receivers for both mouse and keyboard: using the jacks in the back panel while moving the wireless receivers in the front reduced the noise, but it's still here, so I'm looking for some ways to eliminate this.

Actually the motherboard has the audio processor on top of the psu and also it's under the graphic card.

That probably isn't an ideal setup. Also, yeah, USB ports near the audio jack can produce noise. If I have my USB mouse connected to the port next to my headphone jack on my laptop I get some irritating static as well. Electrical isolation is key to all of this. I know there are some meshes out there that can act as a sort of faraday cage, which is what you want for your audio, so see if there's a way you can shield your mobo.

>> No.56651397

Depends which of those builds you're taking about

If it's the first one ("more expensive") I'd opt for a smaller SSD & put the extra $ towards a better PSU. Also you don't really need an aftermarket CPU cooler unless you're going to overclock.

A larger case would be easier to work with, especially for a first-timer, unless you specifically want a smaller form factor

Don't forget the cost of a monitor, kb/m, os, etc. (unless you already have those)

SSD is not worth it for that budget.
Western Digital WD10EZEX Caviar Blue and Seagate ST1000DM003 Barracude are both 1TB drives for less than that 120GB SSD, and they're 7200prm so the speed difference won't be as big. You'll get a lot more storage for your money, and you could use the savings to get 2x4GB RAM sticks instead of 1x8.

Electromagnetic audio interference from the motherboard has been a fact of life for decades, in all honesty mobo-based audio is intrinsically stupid and prone to issues.
And an external DAC that matches you mobo frequency/bitrate should be $20, an external DAC that has better quality and possibly inputs or preamps should be $100
DACs for $200 or more are memes
The point is get an external, get the synthesis away from your motherboard and it will fix the problem

Reposting here because didn't get a response in /sqt/.

I have 4 Hard drives in my server. 2 x 2TB (one from seagate, one HGST) and 2x4TB. (Both Toshiba X300's). In speccy and CrystalDisk the drives Toshiba Drives are showing up as "warning" although both show green in regards to all the specs of the drive. A bit of Googling has shown that this is probably due to the Sector Reallocation count. (360 on one drive, 240 on the other). Both Toshiba drives have around 200 days of up time since purchase with countless terabytes of data written to them.

Should I be worried? The count hasn't increased at all and I was told an ever increasing reallocation count is signs of a dying drive. Was also reading that large capacity drives usually have more reallocated sectors and a higher accepted threshold for them. This somewhat appears to be the case because both my 2TB drives have somewhere in the neighborhood of 20+ reallocated sectors.

The 7970 ghz edition (i.e. r9 280X) would do well at both 1080p and 1440p although you'd have to set the AA down as well as shadows if you're looking to maintain 60 FPS @ 1440p.

I personally play on a 32" 2560x1440 from Samsung. 60HZ. Best of both worlds. More pixel count than 1080p so I can have windows side by side without feeling like they're squished, and the pixel count isn't TOO much higher (like 4k is) that I need a crazy GPU to drive it. I'd say 60hz 1440p 27" > 144hz 1080p 24". Unless you play nothing but racing games that is.

As for upgrades, I'd sit on your GPU as AMD stuff is only getting stronger with the new DX12 games coming out. You might want to consider more RAM. 32GB kits of RAM are dirt cheap now (2x8GB kit being $50). Maybe also look around for an i7-3770k to replace your 3570k. While the i5 2500k/3570k are still strong chips, newer games are actually starting to take advantage of moar coars. I get better FPS/less FPS drop in GTA 5 with my 6700k @ 4.2ghz/980ti than my buddy with his i5-2500k @ 4.8ghz/gtx 1070.

I'm interested in building a PC and while I have somewhat of an idea of what to do, I have no idea how much I should be spending before it becomes too much for what I need. Looking at Logical Increments, I'm just thinking of making the Entry/Modest build. Yes? No?

Not exactly true, but GCN1 doesn't receive the most benefit.

You can probably do all that on a chromebook

If anything, graphics card could use an upgrade. A 1070 will allow you to max almost anything at 1080p, with the exception of DE:MD. (Stupid performance loss on Ultra for almost no visual gain, High or Very High is just fine.) The 1070 really is a waste at 1080p 60Hz though.

Save for a good monitor (Freesync or Gsync, possibly HDR) and by that time the 490 will be out and the 1070 will have come down in price

I think I'm thinking way too hard about this.

What type of fans, airflow or static pressure, do I get for a front intake with a solid front like the Define S? What type of fan should go in the back? Are these propeller-style fans actually pieces of crap that can't even penetrate dust filters? Do I get 120mm or 140mm for better airflow/static pressure?

Even integrated GPU's support multi-monitor setups, although most motherboards don't probably have that many connectors.

But if you dont have multi-monitor setup right now then you dont need to worry about it. If the need arises then you can install a graphics card later on. You might have more money or different need then.
