  3. Advice on a new Intel PC build

    Sure thing. With the processor, the i7-7820X was just the best Intel processor that still fit the budget. One step up is the i9-7900X. Significantly more expensive, but 2 more cores. The ASUS PRIME X299 DELUXE mostly because the Thunderbolt which I think is going to be one of those interfaces that's going to be around for a while and will be adopted by next generation external drives, monitors and such. It has USB 3.1 Gen 2, Type-A and Type-C ports, and lots of storage options. Other than that just a solid board all around with lots of upgrade opportunity in case you decide to drop a Quadro or Vega FE GPU in there down the road. Since you requested sound, the board also has a pretty good onboard sound setup. Realtek S1220A chipset, japanese caps, shielding, amp, de-pop circuit, power regulator, etc. Case.... well check the review. Memory you could probably choose something else. Corsair is rock solid stable so I like them but so is Kingston, Samsung, Crucial.
  4. OK so I went to America's Tire since I had one near me interestingly enough in the same plaza as Costco. Ended up with those same Continentals you got and a warranty as well since there was a rebate offer which saved me a couple bucks. Wow!!!! These are amazing and 90,000 mile warranty and cheaper than both Michelin and Bridgestone.
  5. Best buy has the Corsair K65 LUX RGB mechanical keyboard on sale. $79.99, which is $50 off. LInk:
  6. Advice on a new Intel PC build

    You are right about technology moving quicker but I have accepted that 6-7 years with a system was a very good run and I can only hope for 3/4 years before I have to upgrade again. In ref to your recommendations on parts I would agree on them also. I have sourced the items now just looking for a good deal. Before I go can you explain why you recommended this setup with all the many options available... just for my curiosity! Thanks for your help.
  7. So I've got an oil change coming up on the Accord. I believe it uses 5W-20... I usually get the Mobil 1 Fuel Economy 0w-20 jug off Amazon which is like $23-$30 bucks or so usually. Anyone know where to get it cheaper for hopefully the same stuff? Also, filter too? (I get the cheapo purolator ones haha) TIA!
  8. Straightforward. Trying to learn how to set up a RHEL cluster so I need to deploy some VMs. I've used Virtualbox a few years ago before Win 10 for some simple web dev servers, but haven't used it in a while. I know a lot of people like Hyper-V and VMware... well it's VMware. Before I spend time on this, which one is the best/least annoying to use?
  9. Advice on a new Intel PC build

    Limitations I'd say would be hard to say since tech changes so fast. If you're planning to keep the system for 6-7 years, lots of things will change for sure. I'd say the one I could predict now would just be the socket. Intel likes to change things up every year or two with a new socket and your upgrade path will definitely be limited once that happens. With this CPU definitely you want a quad channel memory setup, so 4 DIMMS of DDR4. For a video editing rig, I'd say 32GB (4x8GB) to 64GB (4x16GB). Corsair, Kingston, Crucial, Samsung, G.Skill are all good. Otherwise you'll also need a cooler since Intel's high end stuff doesn't come with one. I'm a fan of the Corsair H100i v2, especially with that 760T, but a lot of options work especially if you're not going to be overclocking.
  10. Advice on a new Intel PC build

    I agree with your response ...So what limitations will there be in the 2066 socket in the future and what about costs of all the other parts to build it? I will not be OC for some time, only graphics and video editing. What sort of setup would you advise with this CPU. I live in Australia so if you live in US costs are different . I would like it to last for the next 6-7 years if poss? And the only reason I say that is the current CPU and motherboard has lasted me that long, P6T Asus and the Intel 960 CPU ...great team and given me no problems only the P6T failed and had to replace 2 times due to bad memory slots which only showed half of Ram, but overall very reliable. Thank you for your input. cistec
  11. Computer Doesn't Turn on When Pressing Power Button

    Thanks for the feedback guys. Let me see if I can get a test PSU to test this. I'll keep you guys posted!
  12. Advice on a new Intel PC build

    AMD Ryzen is also a very good setup, which will cost you far less than an Intel system at the moment. However, AMD Ryzen is still a very new platform and is undergoing some growing pains as the engineers are still figuring out how it actually works. AMD has done a very good job so far at fixing any bugs that have popped up, but it's still not as mature as Intel. If you're OK with possible bugginess and following up on updates, AMD Ryzen will be an excellent choice that will give you the same performance as Intel at 2/3 the price. If you go Intel, at this point I don't recommend the 6th gen i7-6850K, but rather the 7th gen i7-7800X or i7-7820X.
  13. Advice on a new Intel PC build

    Thanks Sam very interesting, what do you think about a AMD RYZEN setup 1700 v Intel i7 700k-6850k very interesting feedback I am receiving saying AMD is the way? is this true?
  14. Advice on a new Intel PC build

    1. Looking at your budget, probably the Intel Core i7-7820X. It's an 8-core/16-thread CPU. 2. Motherboard, you could get the ASUS Prime X299 Deluxe. It has Thunderbolt 3, integrated Wi-Fi and an upgraded sound setup which is nice. Also support for lots of storage including M.2. If you don't really care about Thunderbolt, the MSI PRO X299 is nice as well and a lot cheaper but less I/O options. 3. I'm a bit biased on this one to the Phanteks Enthoo Luxe Tempered. I've reviewed this one personally and it's excellent. Beautiful case. 4. For memory I like the Corsair Vengeance LED. You could probably go with a 64GB kit. For video editing, especially 4K having a lot of memory will help a lot. 5. Also a fast storage subsystem. What kind of SSD are you rocking?

    The Microsoft Office Removal Tool is a tool released by Microsoft to easily and completely uninstall Microsoft Office.
  16. Hi Guys Looking for advice on a new Intel PC build and recommendations from the experts. I am not a gamer just a Graphics user Photoshop, Drone user 4k, Adobe apps, but if I can can combine both Graphics and gaming I have no problem but Graphics is my main use. Its not my full time job but a hobby so a good solid future upgrade path would help. Budget is flexible but around $1500-2000 but looking for the best bang for my money, I dont mind shopping around for the best prices once I know what parts are required. I have built 2 PCs in the past using Asus P6T with intel CPU 960 i7 ..(still using it great but its 6 years old and parts are rare so nows the time to upgrade) 1) Intel CPU with heat sink if required (OC?) - 1151 or 2011-3 ? so many choices in the i7 range 7700K or 6850K or other? 2) Mobo , would like a really flexible Ram up-gradable mobo with sound and on board graphics to acces the CPU core power, have a older PCIe 2gb graphics card which I can use if compatible? 3) Case ( i am using the Corsair 760T full tower presently and it is great so I would get another one if poss) 4) Ram ? other parts forgot to include. PC PARTS NOT NEEDED -ALREADY HAVE 5) Storage SSD m.2 /HDD already have) monitor -already have 7) PSU - already have Thanks to all that chip in. cistec

  18. Safe to Delete Windows10Upgrade Folder?

    Oh that's just from the Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant. You can uninstall that from the Windows Add/Remove Programs. Just find the Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant, click on it then click the uninstall button.
  19. Computer Doesn't Turn on When Pressing Power Button

    Agreed with ftw. It's probably a dead PSU. If you left it plugged in, it could've been a surge or it just died on its own. Those Dell PSUs, especially the older units were notoriously bad for being super cheap.
  20. Computer Doesn't Turn on When Pressing Power Button

    Hmmmm.... sounds like you might have a dead PSU or maybe a dead motherboard. Probably a dead PSU. Is there any way you can get your hands on a spare unit or one for testing?
  21. Hi technical experts of CPCR, I have an old Dell Inspiron desktop that I haven't used for a while and I recently tried to move it to the TV to set it up as a TV computer for watching Netflix. After I plugged it all in and pressed the power button, the PC doesn't turn on. I believe it worked the last time I left it, but it's not turning on anymore. Does anybody know any easy fix that I should try or is something more serious wrong with it?
  22. I was poking around my C drive earlier and saw this folder, Windows10Upgrade. Anyone knows if it's safe to delete this? It's only eating up like 20MB, but I like to have a clean system. :)

  24. Why is my computer running slow?

    Hey Sam, I installed Malwarebytes and it found a couple things. Hopefully that was it. The system doesn't feel much faster though. Any other suggestions before I go in for a full reset? I'd like to avoid that if possible.
  25. ARRIS SB6183 vs SB6190 vs SB8200

    Awesome, thanks for the suggestions! My area is an old Time Warner Cable area so I've only got up to 300Mbps max. Will go with the SB6183. Thanks!
  26. ARRIS SB6183 vs SB6190 vs SB8200

    I'll throw in a vote for the SB6183. I'm on Spectrum as well and I get a solid 100Mbps. Actually, slightly higher than that usually, somewhere like 110Mbps.
  27. ARRIS SB6183 vs SB6190 vs SB8200

    I think it depends on what tier of internet you're planning to purchase. If you have Gigabit in your area, then you may want to go with the ARRIS SB8200. If you only have a maximum of 300MBPS, you can opt for the SB6183. I don't think there's any reason to purchase the SB6190 or the SB6141 at the moment.
  28. Why is my computer running slow?

    Well that's a loaded question. First thing I'd suggest is to download Malwarebytes. There may be a chance you've been infected with something and it's causing the slowdown. If that's not the case, have you tried doing a clean install of Windows? Generally, if you just upgrade Windows, it leaves behind a lot of junk that will slow down your computer. The easy way to do this right now is back up everything on your PC and go to Start --> Search for "Reset this PC". Then follow the process to do this. This will completely reset your system and it should speed things up by a lot. If it doesn't help, you may want to look into upgrading your PC. Something like a SSD if you haven't installed one already will give you a good boost of performance.
