Local computer store had crap for thermal paste. Just ordered some mx-4 off eBay. Hopefully it doesnít take too long, so I can do the cpu swap. Havenít used mx-4 before, but it seems well liked and reviewed.

Damn nice finds, still hunting for a 2500-2700 1155 right now for my son,

Also photobucket has gone to money grubbing hell so I recommend switching to imgur for your images :)

keep us posted

Will do. I didnít realise photobucket was useless now...I will switch when I get a chance. If only you werenít on the other side of the world it would be worth it to grab one of these PCs just the the 2600. Some of the ones with scrapped up cases have gone for $50.

Everything Hardware / Upgrading old faithful and another random PC

Hey everyone.

I just bought 2 more random HP SFF PCs (I bought one last year that I am using as a TV box with an i5 2400 and 4gb ram). The local auction site here has been clearing out mass quantities of them from a hospital that closed. Never hard drives in them.

One is an i7 2600 with 8gb ram that I got for $70+15%auction fee ($80.50total). I recently grabbed a 120gb WD green SSD for $59 all in during black friday sales that will be going in this PC. Between this PC and my current TV box (mentioned above), I will keep one and give one to my grandparents when I get back to Canada.

The other is an i7 3770 and 8gb ram purchased for $90 ($103.50 after auction fee). This one I am robbing of parts. The 3770 is going in my main desktop to replace my 3570k (ivy bridge non-k can be overclocked by 4 multipliers, so it isn't going to affect freq from how I am running the 3570k). And the 2x4gb ram was just put in my desktop to bring me up to 16gb total.

One frustration I am having is that ram timings aren't playing the game. Even if I set timings in the bios it isn't forcing them...non JEDEC and not what I set. No idea what is happening. Anyone had this issue before. Either way I will keep the ram installed, since it is still running near what I want and it is doubling the capacity.

Now I just need to buy some thermal paste soon to get the CPU swapped.

Good times.



Ram that was pulled



Edit:
Forgot to put a pic of the 3770 awaiting transplant.

Good if the games hold value to whoever is buying. They are trying to clear them out now that the 8700k is out with its extra cores.

Concur with it being an Xbox controller...that said I still find xbox360 controllers to be the best in hand.

Very interesting. A soundproof room would be great. Out of curiousity where do the resonating chambers go? I know exactly what they do, but haven't heard of them in house before.

Real Hardware Reviews / Re: Ryzen 3: Budget or Bust
« on: September 13, 2017, 04:04:37 AM »
Thanks for the review. Ryzen is a breath of fresh air to get competition in the CPU world. If I did anything demanding with productivity etc, it would be at the top of my list. As is I would have no issues recommending it or using it...pricing on the day I buy would likely be the biggest factor.

Thanks for the review. Seems like a great card, but I think $30 is too much of a premium on a low-mid range card. This puts it too close to 1060 3gb pricing. That said real world street pricing is what really matters.

Depends on what you want to mine, But as stated above 1060/1070s are a good start. a 1000W PSU would power a 5 GTX 1070 rig np, or a 6 gtx 1060 rig.

I don't doubt a 1000w powering 5 1070s, but I don't think I would run more than 4 personally.
