Been playing Playerunknowns Battlegrounds for a couple of hours with everything on ultra and it's sitting at 68C... sound about right?
Please can you recommend a temp monitor that will superimpose itself over a Steam game? I normally use CPUID HWMonitor, however in the couple of seconds between tabbing out of the game and viewing the temp info it's already cooled off a few degrees. Would be good to see it in real time.
So, I think I fixed it guys. Took the cooler off, reapplied (more) thermal paste and tightened the screws attaching the main body of the HG10 to the card itself.
Using a 1920x1080 burn in test in Furmark, temperature topped out at 68C after 30 minutes (it slowly crept up to this temp, then stayed there dropping back to 67 then back up to 68). 107 fps average.
Does this sound acceptable?
Really appreciate everyone who has taken the time to comment.
Thanks dude :)
Thanks dude, I'll take it apart and try using a bit more next time. I used maybe twice the width of a BB pellet so that could well be where it's gone wrong!
I saw an instructional video by Corsair on the HG10 and he used half the bloody tube on it so that supports your theory haha
I did indeed - Arctic MX-4 from the top of my head
Thought it might be. Highly frustrating. Also started to get some artifacting on startup (while the windows 10 logo is on the screen).
Why did i screw around with it...!
Dunno, but wherever it is probably has lots of fans and RGB.
You're drunk Jipster go home.
What what where
While i'm certainly no expert, I personally can't see a big deal if your CPU is sticking to the 60s under max load. I'd say that shows your CPU cooler is doing it's job?
No worries, I picked one of the PCs that were for sale in the PCPP forum up today :-)
-Joins community just to sell.
-Talks down to people asking questions.
Interested in the HDD and SSD. How much would you be looking for them?
Are you willing to sell parts, or are you only wanting to sell the unit as a whole? There's a few bits on here I may be interested in, price dependent of course!
Out of interest dude, is there a monitor with this or is it literally base unit? Cheers :)
I am interested, just commenting so that I get notifications when I get home from work...
Is that including all peripherals etc e.g. monitors?
Can you give a ballpark of how much you are looking for it? Please and thank you!
I have the Asus PG278Q and recommend it without hesitation!
Beautiful build, +1!
Thanks man! Don't think I can get hold of that desk in the UK from the look of it :(
I'll try and get round to posting pics of my build soon. Won't be as fresh looking as a new build as its been in use since December :D
I have the 27 inch version of this monitor, and wholeheartedly recommend it. If I could turn back time though I would definitely go for the humungous curved option though :p
Very nice clean build mate. I've got a build using the White Air 540 case but it's not nearly as tidy as this, particularly with your cable management!
Could I please ask where you got your white cables and the desk from?
Thanks man :D
I've just gone full "sod it" mode and returned this due to the defective Enter key, and ordered this in replacement lol :-)
Ok dude, i'll look into it. Thanks
Thanks for the reply mate. So to your knowledge, I have no way of viewing my license key? What happens if I need to reinstall Windows?
Thanks. I've done a bit more digging with fresh eyes this morning and it turns out the GPU not showing is due to the GPU not being utilised when not activated by Nvidia Optimus. I'm going to give it a go with the current settings, as I can't find any major disadvantages of not having the 960m set as the default video card (quite easy to do through Windows surprisingly).
Thanks for the benchmark, that's very useful.
I appreciate the insight very much :-)
I'm not sure, but it definitely involved bugs.
Ah well new monitor now, see latest post :D
Well, the screen died. Genuinely died as well, I didn't "make" it faulty! It went really blurry for like 5 minutes (almost as if it were trying to show 3D) then I couldn't get any picture at all on it...even though power lights were still on.
Replacement on the way from Amazon.
Might leave it a bit before using until thunderbug season is over (I go to Cyprus for one month next week, so won't be back until September) as I don't want to risk bugs getting inside the brand new one!
Images here. There are three bugs in total. Apologies for the poor pic quality, it was taken on my 6 year old spare iphone!
managed to brick my phone when i failed to root it. Hopefully getting it fixed tomorrow, will take a pic then.
I thought it was dead pixels at first, then i saw them crawling around!
Nope, this is genuine. A quick google search confirmed that im not the only unlucky bugger. Really annoyed at this!
And it still sounds like a real word haha
Don't use Reddit, got no interest in Reddit, will never use Reddit. Thanks though!
What did Humpty Dumpty do to his head? He BUMPed it...
True, but a lot of people won't use Reddit (I don't!) so could well miss things if they aren't on here :)
Haha as if you got downvoted! Wasn't me, promise! I was just pulling your leg :)
Or /r/hardwareswap? :p
What is it with you and hardwareswap? Haha
I will do dude, thanks :)
That looks awesome, their mid plate looks spot on. Thanks for that! :D
+1, beautiful build. I have a build centred around a white Air 540 but doesn't look half as nice as this.
Out of interest, can I purchase the custom mid plate that your friend made from him?? Long shot I know...
Interesting... Registering interest but only so I get notifications of updates :) Possibly one for the future if it doesn't sell.
When you say West Midlands, what town/city are you near?
Madness. Utter madness. The price is now reduced to £425. Madness I tell you...
Realise what a once in a lifetime bargain this is.
