Describe your problem. List any error messages and symptoms. Be descriptive. I have a MasterLiquid Maker 92 AIO cooler (which, I've checked, is correctly installed) which I thought would be a nice upgrade over the stock cooler. Unfortunately, for some reason the temps are worse than the stock cooler, which would stay at ~50C on idle. I have also confirmed that there's no malware, bitcoin mining, etc going on in task manager. List anything you've done in attempt to diagnose or fix the problem. See above. Post relevant photos of build/parts here. 1 2 3 4 5 Provide any additional details you wish below. Sometimes it spikes up to 80C.
So I'm working on my first build buying parts one at a time and I'm finally to the video card. This is where I figure out that I literally can't find a 580 in stock anywhere. As I understand, bitcoin miners have been buying all of them up. So here's my build, could you guys recommend me a card, or is this 570 4gb I found at my local best buy decent?

Hello Redditors! I was referred here by a floor mate of mine, she said, 'Reddit is the place to go if you ever need ANYTHING.' She made sure to emphasis the anything part. I recently bought a complete desktop off of a fellow on Craigslist. (The guy I bought it off of is in the United States Army, and he had to literally sell it quick while he was in town. He was being shipped off to California, and was just going to throw it away if he didn't sell it.) He was asking $75.00 for the complete setup, which I thought was decent. I emailed him an offer of $50.00, knowing his hardware was a little dated. After approximately 12 days of going back and forth, I finally was able to meet this guy and complete the exchange. He gave me a monitor, tower, router, mouse, keyboard all for $40.00; he shaved $10.00 off for it being Christmas and all when we met. Here is a little more detail about each of the individual items. The Monitor - It's an eMachines monitor, running 1366x768 with a 60Hz refresh. Great condition. The Tower - It's an eMachines ET1331G-05w Model. This tower is different though, it has 2 HDDs (750GB and 200GB) and a discrete graphics card! (ATI Radeon HD 5450, to be exact.) It's running Windows 7, and I haven't used it for anything besides general web browsing and light BitCoin mining. The Router - It was a brand spanking new NETGEAR N900 Wireless Dual Band USB Adapter, and it works great! (I was looking in stores, and it was $60.00 or so brand new!) The Keyboard - I believe it to be the stock eMachines keyboard, nothing special. It has the Volume controller at top, with a sleep button on the right. The Mouse - It's just a Microsoft optical mouse from what I can tell about it. So, for a grand total of $40, I don't believe I did that bad for what I got. Allow me to get back on track with why I posted here... My friend told me that I'd be able to get help here with building a more up-to-date computer. She explained how it's cheaper and I'd get a better computer for my dollar. I saw that there was this part of Reddit -> /buildapcforme - I don't want someone else to build my computer for me. So, instead of going that route, I am going to propose a build and get some feedback on it. I plan on making this the central-hub for just about everything.... Gaming, Movies, Music, Work, etc... I run Photoshop, NetBeans, Eclipse, and so much more! Here is the AMD Build: PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

I feel more comfortable with AMD, because it's all I have ever used. I also like the idea of EyeFinity. TL/DR -> What are your thoughts Reddit? Does my AMD Build look good? Does the Intel build look good? Current Score AMD - 1 Intel - 2
[Build Complete] BitFenix Prodigy APU/HD7970 based Litecoin miner/HTPC/Home file server built from (mostly) spare parts
Please note that the only parts I had to buy were the Prodigy case, ITX motherboard, Seagate HDD, the 230mm Fan and the optical drive. Also the prices don't reflect what I/others paid. Also I live in Australia; however the AU partpicker was missing some items. PICTURES PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks

Other notes are that I would strongly advise AGAINST using this motherboard, I had to RMA my first one. The replacement was supposed to be revision 2.0 however is 1.0. This is why I purchased the 230mm fan (in hopes of avoiding another fire!) I didn't end up using the SSD as its just an HTPC/miner. It mines roughly 690Khash/s on the 7970; and around 110Khash/s on the APU (mining with Scrypt for Litecoin, not SHA-256 for bitcoin) 7970 hovers around 68-74 Celsius with room temps between 23-28C. No thermostat on VRM's unfortunately. I feel confident this build is complete, no parts to add. I use Filezilla server as a file server as I can access this from anywhere in the world The A10 is at stock speeds as I don't want to push the VRMs on the motherboard and risk another fire. This gives more than enough power for blu-ray decoding, and other HTPC duties. Very happy with this build. If anyone has any questions or comments I'd be glad to hear the feedback. Thanks
Hey guys, I'm gonna use this build for gaming and given the shortage of parts in Bulgaria (and the prices - which are quite the bummer for me) I've chosen these parts for my build. Currently I have a 1680x1050 monitor (think that's 780p) and hoping to upgrade but I don't think that will be any soon. I've already purchased R9 290 second hand for a cheap price - was used as a BitCoin miner. I'm planning to overclock in the future so I'll replace the stock cooler of the CPU with Evo 212 (in future, no money atm). That's why I'm getting the k version of 4690. Here's the build - any thougths? Edit: I think the PSU is a lil overkill, but can't grab the 750W version (being bought out pre-e-e-e-ty fast here) PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
/gaming knows computers right? I already have one 5870 and I demand more power. Since everyone says 5870's are great for bitcoin mining, store stocks are pretty low -.- I currently have a bid on ebay for a 1-month old one and I'm winning. But now I regret it (can't cancel bids) since I saw this http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=56341&vpn=900338&manufacture=VISIONTEK (this brand is pretty cheap). And no, I can't afford a 6990.
Hi all, I am looking to build my first computer and would love to get your expert input. For the sake of putting all the information out there, I copied my post from Tom's Hardware, so it's a bit lengthy. Approximate Purchase Date: ASAP. Budget Range: Around 1500 USD. System Usage from Most to Least Important: 1a. research/data work/programming (python, MATLAB, etc.), 1b. trading (possibly algorithm-based but not like high-frequency), and 2. general use. Are you buying a monitor: No. I have 4 Dell 2007FP monitors that I would like to use w/ this system. Do you need to buy OS: Yes. Preferred Website(s) for Parts: No preference. Location: Cambridge, MA. Parts Preferences: No preference. Overclocking: No (maybe out of curiosity in the future). SLI or Crossfire: No (maybe out of curiosity in the future). Your Monitor Resolution: 1600x1200. I have a few specific questions:
Is there a need for an aftermarket CPU cooler, or will the stock device be sufficient (given that I won’t be overclocking)?
My impression is that the motherboard doesn’t have wireless capabilities (correct me if I’m wrong). If so, what wireless adapter should I get?
Windows 7 or Windows 8? I know that there is a lot of debate about this. If it doesn’t really matter for my purposes, then I plan to go with Windows 8 for the simple reason that it seems more future-proof (by definition).
Graphics card. I realize that it may be too much for what I plan to do esp. since I don’t game much, but I do need to be able to support the 4 Dell 2007FP monitors. Last night I also realized that I could just use the card to mine bitcoins/litecoins most of the time, which is why I made a last minute switch from the GTX 670, which apparently is bad at mining. In light of these comments, do you think the card is appropriate?
