  5. I just wrapped up my first hard lined liquid cooled build. I've been following this community for a while and thought this would be a fun first post!

    Hello, Guys, I am from Toronto, New to this forum.
  7. First PC Build Help

    The build mostly looks fine. The only change I would make is to either go to 16GB RAM using 2x8GB sticks or go with 2x4GB sticks for 8GB. The Core i7-7700K uses dual channel memory so you'll lose half of your memory bandwidth using a single stick. As for AMD vs Intel, ideally you'll want an Intel system as they have higher IPC performance which is important for gaming. However, as most games are GPU limited rather than CPU limited, I'd recommend picking up that 2x8GB or 2x4GB kit of memory over an Intel platform if you're limited on funds. Hope that helps!

  10. First PC Build Help

    Here is the parts list I have going so far: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/cD4XxY Looking for a gaming rig, would like to get at least 120Hz, 144Hz if possible. Budget is $1300-$1500. Thanks for any help! Is going to a Ryzen 5 1600 a good idea, since it's considerably cheaper?
  11. First build advice

    Hey Yaminos, Congrats on your first build! As for your questions... 1. What components did you purchase? If it's something with integrated video, then yes. If no, then you'll likely need to wait for the GPU. 2. Nope you just need the Windows 10 USB or DVD and that should be it. If you want to be super prepared, go ahead and head over to the motherboard vendor's website and download the latest drivers for your motherboard. Since you have a graphics card as well, go ahead and head over to either AMD or Nvidia's site to download the latest drivers there as well.
  12. Need opinions on different cases :(

    That Mr. NUC case is way out in left field. That's actually a mini-pc that's not going to fit any components other than the ones that are already installed. As far as the Corsair 270R vs NZXT S340, these are going to be fairly similar cases with similar features. What components are you specifically planning to put in there? For most builds, I'd recommend just picking the one that you think looks better or the one that's on discount at the moment.
  13. Pc desk case

    Well, you'll have to drill out the holes that you'll need to put in the standoffs to mount the motherboard. There's two ways to do this. If you want to be precise, you can download the ATX specifications, measure out the locations the holes need to go and drill it out. The other way is to just put the motherboard on the coffee table you plan to install it and just use a very thin pencil or something and mark the location of the holes. Then drill them out, put the standoffs and screw in the board. The rest of the pieces you can probably figure out. I'd probably just use a bracket for the power supply. The graphics expansion cards you may want to devise some sort of bracket solution or something so they don't move. atx-specification.PDF
  14. Pc desk case

    I’m looking to build a coffee table case. What all would I have to do to it in order to install all the hardware? Like cutting out and drilling holes and if I have to put anything on the wood so I can mount everything?

  16. affordable 4K video editing PC

    the price matters, but it must be able to edit those 4k masterpieces, so hit me up with your affordable and good quality ideas
  17. Hi guys, so a friend of mine asked me to build a pc for him with which he can edit the videos he makes with his new 4K camera... So, I need your help with it, because even though I built myself a gaming pc, I am not sure about what to put into an affordable 4k video editing pc. He planeed paying about 1000$ for it, but I told him that it won't be enough if he needs it for 4K editing, and now he is kindda freaked out by the prices. Thanks in advance :)
  18. I have been looking around the site for mid tower cases that I might consider for my first build. Here they are; Corsair - 270R https://pcpartpicker.com/product/PZX2FT/corsair-270r-atx-mid-tower-case-cc-9011105-ww Mr.NUC-V6-BTJ1900V3U http://www.minicase.net/Mr.NUC-barebone-celeron-j1900-V3U.html NZXT - S340 (Black) https://pcpartpicker.com/product/ms6BD3/nzxt-case-cas340wb1 Can you perhaps give me the pros and cons for these cases? and which one would be the best in terms of design, airflow, durability, and price?
  19. 120mm Case Fan Recommendation?

    If you want something as quiet as Noctua or BeQuiet, AFAIK nothing with a green LED exists. What kind of motherboard are you using? Depending on if your motherboard supports RGB lighting, my best recommendation is to get a Silverstone FG121 or similar. Mounts directly with the fan and just provides light so you can use your favorite Noctua or BeQuiet fans. If your motherboard doesn't support it, you can get a control box, but your case may not be big enough to support that. https://www.amazon.com/SilverStone-Technology-Mystic-BIOSTAR-FG121/dp/B06XGS6V7J/
  20. Hey, I am using realan case E-D3.It has a fan inside but I want to change a new one. Can anyone recommend either: a) A really good, really quiet 120mm case fan with a green LED, or b) A standalone green LED that I can put in front of something like a Noctua fan that doesn't require an additional power plug. Thanks!
  21. Review on first custom PC please

    Hey Mike, I'm not able to see the image. Mind copy and pasting the specs?
  22. I want a gaming pc for around 650 pounds which can run large games like GTA5 well(at 1080P) and I have made this build. Can someone please give advice on it and say any changes which will improve it without changing the price drastically? Thanks. It is currently about £650(
  23. Hey Rom, The build looks good to me. I think you could however save some money by downgrading to a much smaller power supply. If you plan on making huge upgrades, a 650w PSU would do. Otherwise, even a 550w would be fine in this instance. The GTX 1050 Ti is very power efficient. Also, if the price is similar, I'd go with the Samsung 850 EVO. Samsung's 3D TLC NAND is far better than WD/SanDisk's.
  24. Hi, This is my first forum topic, so please help me out here. I do a lot of graphics work, Adobe Suite, Coral, etc. I also do video editing.

  25. You mean the BIOS splash screen? That can be changed, but it largely depends on if your motherboard maker lets you do it. I know some Intel, ASUS, Gigabyte etc. motherboards that let you do it and they usually let you upload that through the BIOS or a windows utility. If your motherboard maker doesn't build this functionality, it needs to be modified through the motherboard firmware file. I think that will be a lot more difficult and you could potentially brick your system by doing it. https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/boards-and-kits/desktop-boards/000006606.html https://www.asus.com/support/FAQ/1012430/
  26. I have always loved to customize everything I own, and my PC is no exception with a boat load of customizations including, *wallpapers *icons *GUI-themes *cursurs *custom sounds *logon screens *boot screens *custom start menus *rainmeter *Stardock(object dock, desk scapes, fences, window fx, ect.) Yes I am a Custom-JUNKIE, and as far as I can see the only thing left to customize is my "post" screen. I was unable to find anything to help me do so on google, So I came here to ask the comunity... Can it be done? I would like to customize my post screen(before bootscreen) with custom text in a custom colour,and if possible change\remove the "american megatrends" logo in the top right corner. Is this even possible\legal thanks in advance.
