Camaxide's Completed Build: 4K Home Theatre Gaming Setup

Mike2015 2 Builds 4 points 2 days ago

Nothing is "free", somewhere somebody is paying for it. The library is only "free" because of your tax dollars support it.

What about the your country's/state's cost to put you through grades 1-12 and any college costs that you incurred. You certainly couldn't build a computer without the proper education.

Justice was served, very quickly. He did everybody a favor. Instead of him going through the courts systems wasting many thousands and thousands of taxpayer's dollars and him getting the death penalty in 10 years (and taxpayers supporting him all those 10 years), he got the death penalty immediately.

Forum Topic "Question for you people"

Mike2015 2 Builds 1 point 19 days ago

I'm not a doctor, but I doubt, when you do start to eat the right amount of calories, that your body would catch up to where it should be once you get to around 18 years old. You lost a certain amount of growth years and you probably are not getting those back unless you get on some type of growth hormone.

Forum Topic "Question for you people"

Mike2015 2 Builds 1 point 20 days ago

Your probably asking this question on the wrong website, but I'll bite and give my 2 cents worth. I would say that if you are currently undersized for a 13 year old then I doubt your body will "catch up" on it's own without help from some type of growth hormone.

Well, I think it all depends on if the batteries are in parallel or series. If the batters are in parallel, then it is adding longer batter life, but if the batteries are in series, then it is providing more voltage. Parallel is if all the + are together and all the - are together, series are if the + of one batter goes to the - of the next battery.

Your part list does not match the build. Your motherboard, RAM and video card do not match. Given that you only have one picture this might be a fake build.

Forum Topic "Pc restarts when on the windows loading screen, please help!"

Mike2015 2 Builds 1 point 24 days ago

Huh....So you had another hard drive with windows installed and it still would not boot with that hard drive?

A bad PSU will cause a computer to do funny things. Given that the computer does go into the Bios, I would think that that would eliminate any issues with the motherboard, RAM or CPU.

Forum Topic "Pc restarts when on the windows loading screen, please help!"

Mike2015 2 Builds 1 point 25 days ago

The Bios isn't going to tell you what the issue is, all I meant was if you can get into the Bios and move around in the Bios, most likely you do not have a hardware issue and it could be a software issue. Try starting windows in safe mode.

Keep in mind that if you do eventually re-install Windows, you will lose anything saved on the hard drive unless you make copies of it first.

Forum Topic "Pc restarts when on the windows loading screen, please help!"

Mike2015 2 Builds 1 point 25 days ago

Before getting to the windows start screen, see if you can get into the Bios. That should tell you if it is Windows or a hardware issue. Bad cable management won't kill a computer.

I agree, they need more Iris Pro chips for LGA1151 socket. Like the i5-5675C and i7-5775C that they had for the LGA1150 socket.

Ah, okay. So you weren't sure if the "K" chip would run too hot at stock speed.

Forum Topic "[BUILD LOG]: Jipster's Little Lian-Li Mini ITX Adventure - "Ahhh... where do the fans go?!""

Mike2015 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

I may be completely off the mark here, but isn't the TDP of the i5-6500 only lower because of the lower clock? Once you overclock the i5-6500 the Intel stated TDP is out the window. If you got the i5-6500 to 4.2 GHz and you had an i5-6600K to 4.2 GHz wouldn't the TDP be the same.

I may be completely wrong here.

It is how it sounds. Can you link me to something that backs you up. Every web page that I pulled up confirms what I have said.

Forum Topic "Five Cheap Ways Too Improve Your PC"

Mike2015 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

But when you read "SSD" it is read as "ess ess dee" so since the word begins with a vowel sound, you use "an".

I tried to do an internet search and find something that backs up what you are saying but could not find anything. So I guess we can agree to disagree.

Forum Topic "Five Cheap Ways Too Improve Your PC"

Mike2015 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Not what this article states to do.

Forum Topic "Five Cheap Ways Too Improve Your PC"

Mike2015 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

You us "an" before words that start with a vowel sound, so when you say the word "S" it sounds like "ess", which would dictate using "an" in front of SSD. But it you spell out SSD, then you would use "a" Solid State Drive.

Forum Topic "Insane coincidences"

Mike2015 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Well, the only thing I can come up with is this. Back in the day before cell phones, when there were only pay phones and pagers. I just happened to be driving around one Saturday afternoon when I got a page (all it displays is a telephone number), so I pulled into the closest convenient store (to get to a pay phone) to call the number back and my friend who had just paged me was at the same convenient store waiting by the pay phones for me to call her back. We hadn't talked at all that day nor had we made any prior plans to meet up anywhere. It was just pure coincidence. And we both lived on opposite sides of town and we were both no where near where we lived.

The M.2 drive wasn't really bought for it's price to performance, but rather I just wanted to get some experience with an M.2 drive and also to help with the cable management buy eliminating 2 cables from the case.

Mike2015 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

Love the case. I've see a few builds on PCPP with that case. I've been thinking about getting that case myself. Did you get the case from the kickstarter page or from a dealer (if a dealer, what dealer)?

P.S. The Dan case is on PCPP here so you don't need to have it as a "custom" part.

I have the Google Nexus 5X and am very happy with it. It is a little over a year old now, but Google supports it (pushes updated) for a full two years. B&H has a new one for $289.99 here.

Or if you want something a little bigger, there is the Google Nexus 6P.

Forum Topic "Customizing my PC"

Mike2015 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

I had a slightly different problem but somewhat close where my computer would not come on at all or it would come on and go right back off (fans and lights would come on briefly). It ended up being the PSU. I don't necessary think that it is your PSU, but can you get you hands on another PSU just to eliminate that piece of hardware.

Forum Topic "Customizing my PC"

Mike2015 2 Builds 1 point 1 month ago

I just meant take everything out of the case and sit the motherboard on some foam or something and then hook everything back up out of the case. Isn't the only variable the case? All the same parts were working in the Dell but now they are not working in the Roswell.

Do you get the "beep" that the bios is loaded (or did you never get a beep with the Dell)? Try another video output.

I am happy how it turned out and I probably plan to upgrade it in the future (i want an i7-7700k, 1080ti, new ram, and a new motherboard to support the cpu and ram) and maybe sometime a custom waterloop ;)

So basically your saying that you are not happy with your current setup and want to replace everything.

All kidding aside, the computer looks very clean from what I can see of it. Can you upload some more pictures of the PC?

The only thing that comes to mind is take the motherboard back out and try to bench test everything out of the case. I know that is a total pain but sometimes the motherboard can get shorted if the standoff from the case are not exactly right.

Also, make sure you don't have any extra unused cables that are bunched up somewhere that might be shorting out.
