Mike2015 2 Builds 2 points 1 day ago

Great build. Lot of power in that case. I built in the red version of this case, but not the "Plus" version (I don't have the top fan). I ended up reversing the back fan so the back fan is intake on my build and then the PSU fan would be the exhaust. Will be interested to see what your temperatures are. Are you overclocking the CPU yet?

P.S. Great video!

I'm not sure how good Samsung is at updating their phones, but with the Pixel you are pretty much guaranteed to get the operating system updated for probably at least two years. I have a Nexus 5X (also a Google phone from a couple of years ago) and I get security and system updates about every other month.

Mike2015 2 Builds 2 points 22 days ago

First you need an internet service provider (i.e. Comcast, ATT, etc). Then you would either buy or rent a cable or DSL modem from them. Then you would buy or rent a wifi router and the wifi router is what will give you the wifi that your computer needs to connect to the internet (if your computer will be close to the cable modem then you can plug the computer directly into the cable modem or wifi router with an ethernet cable (so you wouldn't actually using the "wifi" in this case). If you just have the one computer that you need to connect to the internet and the computer will be close to the modem then you don't need a router.

NeXTechNews's Completed Build: DIY All-In-One

Mike2015 2 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

Love the build.................but I'm not liking that you lose VESA mounting ability. A build like this would be great with this mount, but without the VESA mounting ability, you can't use it.

And it looks like it would be a little hard to get to any USB ports. Could you possible mount the computer to one side on the back of the monitor and then that would open up the VESA mounts and also make some of the USB ports towards the back edge of the screen more accessible?

kwokhei's Completed Build: Beauty and a Beast (NCASE M1)

Mike2015 2 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

You were able to fit a micro ATX motherboard into that case? The NCASE specs state that it can only hold a mini-ITX or mini-DTX. The 4th picture does look like the GPU is slanted just a bit, but other than that, great job on fitting all of that in the case.

Is there a particular reason that you went with an micro ATX motherboard instead of a mini-ITX with built in wifi?

I agree, for gaming an i5 would be more than adequate. There are better processors than the i7-7700K (like the 10 core i7-6950X or some of the 22 or 24 core Xeons), but they really aren't considered "consumer" processors.

Here is another comparison between the two processes and the Pentium comes out 118% times better.

Forum Topic "Need a build for my family"

Mike2015 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

The Intel Pentium rates better than the Athlon, see comparison here. Also, with the Intel based system, you would have an upgradable computer. You could replace the processor down the road with an i7-7700, which is currently Intel's top of the line consumer desktop processor. Even though the Athlon has twice the cores, the Pentium scores almost twice as good as the Athlon.

Totally agree with regard to the RAM. He is only getting the benefit of dual channel the way that he currently has them (instead of quad channel). Page 30 of the manual shows to place a stick in each of the outside slots (on both sides of the CPU) then moving in on both sides skip the next slot and then place the next two.

BeerzGod's Completed Build: Purple K

Mike2015 2 Builds 2 points 1 month ago

Very nice build. +1. Just one criticism, why did you go with a gtx 950 over a gtx 1050 or gtx 1050ti? The gtx 1050 goes for less than $150 and is rated just a bit better than the gtx 950.

In your parts review of the CPU, I think you mean 4 physical cores, not "logical" cores.

Mike2015's Completed Build: Wife's Red PC

Mike2015 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

The case is a little tight to work in and you have to make sure all of your parts fit, but other than that, it is a nice case.

One note, the PSU that I used does work, but the extension wire that plugs into the PSU and extends to the back of the case wasn't really meant for the PSU and I used. The plug on the PSU was facing the wrong direction and I had to really bend the plug quite a bit in order to plug it in.

Forum Topic "Weird issue with computer not turning on sometimes."

Mike2015 submitter 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Well, originally the 1st thing that I RMA'd was the PSU which didn't fix the issue. Yes, the replacement PSU was the exact same model. I don't really have a way to swap in another PSU.

I didn't know that unplugging the PSU for a day or so would allow the computer to boot until I accidentally came across that resolution after the last motherboard was in. A friend of mine did test the PSU with one of those PSU testers and everything tested fine, but the issue is obviously in intermittent issue, and the PSU may have just been working fine that day.

Thanks for your response. So your suggesting to replace the PSU but with a different model/make than the one that I currently have, correct?

On Thermaltake's website it states that the max CPU cooler height for your case is 140 mm, but the H7 has a height of 145 mm. It might still fit the case but you would be taking a chance in that it might be too tall. You could either go with the Cryorig M9i/a or the Noctua NH-U9s. The Noctua is slightly better than the Cryorig M9i/a but you probably don't like the brown fans. You can buy white or black vibration pads.

khmergod's Completed Build: The Blue Bomber

Mike2015 2 Builds 1 point 2 months ago

Nice!! I just built using the same case (red without a window) and same mobo. I replaced and turned the back fan around to be intake. I didn't do any testing but I did see some reviews that did and turning the back fan around did help a bit. Since the PSU would be exhausting, it make sense to have the rear as intake. I see you used a SFX PSU, it looks like it made working in the case just a bit easier. You've got my +1 for sure.

P.S. How did you get that mobo for so cheap?

I'm not completely following what you are saying. You have the right parts to overclock, no need to buy a new CPU or GPU, but when you do overclock you might want to swap out the CPU cooler for one that can handle overclocking.

Unless I am mistaken, I think the rear fan is set to intake. I looked at the little arrows in the plastic shroud and I'm pretty sure that it was pointing into the case.
