Forum Topic "What are the most/best played games on PC?"

I just want GTA V, sick of the crap on my 360. Once it comes out, I'll require assistance out of my seat.

Forum Topic "120gb ssd suddenly not good enough?"

nada190 3 Builds 1 point 53 months ago

I know I can survive with a 120GB SSD on my laptop, I just use it for regular stuff now.

120GB on my PC might become annoying eventually, which is why I went for a 256GB. I've had it for 5 months now and I've only used up around 100GB, everything else is on my HDD's.

Get the EVGA, my RM failed doing next to nothing, good thing warranty covered it. My EVGA is still going strong with heavy loads.

Forum Topic "3 Fans or 2?"

nada190 3 Builds 2 points 55 months ago

I'd get the 3 fan one because it looks cooler and because more is always better. Better cooling, may not be lower temps but it will be more efficient, less strain on the 2 fans, by having 3.

Forum Topic "Corsair AF120 rear fan louder than the front fan."

nada190 3 Builds 1 point 55 months ago

How do you have that fan connected? Motherboard or PSU? If motherboard, you can use a program to turn the fan speed down or do it in the BIOS.

nada190 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 55 months ago

Pretty loud at full speed, actually really loud, I can hear it outside my room with all of my fans at full speed.

I use them at 40% most of the time and 70% when gaming and doesn't bother me.

Forum Topic "24 pin connector being weird"

nada190 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 55 months ago

I took it off and it looks fine, plugged it back in, PC turned on then booted then shut off again. Wiggled it a bit and started turning on again then off again, I pulled it off again and blasted it with air to clear out any dust and that didn't do anything either.

It seems when I push the wires connecting to the 24pin connector itself, it works, maybe one of them was not crimped well?

Forum Topic "24 pin connector being weird"

nada190 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 55 months ago

The PSU end is fine as well, I'll take it off and examine the pins inside the connector.

9 months old, the connector is fully connected, the tab that clicks into place is fine.

It's a Asus Maximus VI Formula.

I press the button, doesn't turn on so then I wiggle it and it continues to turn on like normal.

I don't have to press the button again.

Forum Topic "Help me choose from these headsets"

nada190 3 Builds 1 point 56 months ago

Nope, sometimes I turn them up way up, loud enough to damage my hearing and it still doesn't leak. Doesn't sound good that loud though because my ears start to hurt lol.

Forum Topic "Help me choose from these headsets"

nada190 3 Builds 1 point 56 months ago

I own the Corsair 2100, great headset, I got mine on a crazy deal, $40 when it was selling for $140. Priced has dropped now though.

Great build quality, no connectivity issues, listening to games in the bathroom is fun. Pretty good sound quality, I'm a total audiophile and I think they sound pretty good, virtual surround works great. Virtual surround bass is very deep though sounds unnatural to my ears and stereo sounds more natural but I got it for the virtual surround. Great headset!

Only thing I don't like is the weight, too heavy for prolonged gaming sessions. It has a battery, reciever/transmitter, mic, 2 50mm drivers, power switch, LED light and metal/plastic construction, considering all those it's actually pretty light how they fit all that stuff in there.

If you need to wear it for 1hr+ I suggest something lighter unless your neck is super strong.

Forum Topic "Using a 4-pin Y fan splitter with a Maximus Vi Gene"

nada190 3 Builds 1 point 56 months ago

I have a Asus VI Formula, CPU fan controls CPU_OPT fans in AI Suite. The only real PWM headers are the CPU_FAN and CPU_OPT, all the other 4 pin headers are current controlled. My LED fans that are connected to the 4 pin CHA headers have pulsing leds, because the current keeps changing. At least I think that's why the LED's keep changing brightness. The ones connected to the cpu are full brightness regardless of fan speed.

Forum Topic "Is my HDD too hot?"

nada190 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 56 months ago

Oh silly me, I forgot to plug the chassis fan back into the header. Temps should drop after I plug it back in. Was wondering why...

Looks like it could fit some 30mm rounds in there, if not some .50 BMG rounds would be nice. Aim the rounds at the CPU and GPU to scare them and they will run faster.

When you submit a completed build for everyone to see, you get to pick a rating for each component (1-5 stars). Depends whether the person liked it or not.

Forum Topic "Tempted to Buy an 1TB SSD"

nada190 3 Builds 1 point 57 months ago

I just brought my first SSD last week, a Crucial MX100 256GB and I still have over 190gb free on it. I originally wanted to get 500+GB because well, go big or go home, but it just wasn't worth it and turned out I can actually get away with 120gb though, it will eventually require me to sort things out to make space.

SSD prices are dropping pretty fast this year, I'd just go with a smaller one for now if I were you.

Forum Topic "Another fan post!!"

nada190 3 Builds 1 point 58 months ago

Use a Swiftech 8-way PWM splitter, connect all 7 fans to it then 2-pin to the cpu fan header. It's SATA powered so no power coming from the headers. It will control all the fans at once using whatever fan utility you use, Fan Xpert for Asus works fine since you picked a Asus mobo.

Forum Topic "High CPU temperature's first build"

nada190 3 Builds 1 point 58 months ago

AI Suite is inaccurate, also try increasing your fan speed through fan xpert. I use AI suite and set my fans to fixed speed, but for air cooling try increase the percentage of fan speed in relation to heat. Ex: 50% 30C or something, since it's inaccurate maybe do something like 50% at 25C. On my PC it's always colder by 5-8C, not sure why your AI Suite is reporting it hotter.

Try using HWMonitor as well to see your temps.

Forum Topic "looking for a new replacement for the sybria v2."

nada190 3 Builds 1 point 58 months ago

I have the Corsair 2100, really good for gaming. Virtual surround + audiophile = Weird but I only use it for gaming so whatever.

It is a bit tight on my head, I have to take it off once in awhile to take a break from the tightness. I got it for $40 USD so I don't have too much to complain, they used to be $140 but I guess Corsair realized they weren't selling really well and dropped the price.

Great build quality, wireless works fantastic, love walking around far away from my PC and still hear everything perfectly.

If you don't want wireless, then the Corsair 1500 should be great too. Logitech makes great products too, I love them a lot so if that's what you like go for it.

Forum Topic "Buzzing noise?"

nada190 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 58 months ago

Figured out the culprit, for some reason the case cover/lid is causing vibrations, never happened before. Maybe Silverstone doesn't like Noctua or something because that's the only change I made.

Going to see if it keeps buzzing, atm it's not.

Forum Topic "Buzzing noise?"

nada190 submitter 3 Builds 1 point 58 months ago

It's too loud to be from the HDD's and it just started happening today after I took it apart, might just take it apart again for inspection.

It still made the noise when the fans came to a complete stop.

Forum Topic "Fast HDD or Get an SSD?"

If you're constantly writing tons of data then the SSD won't last that long. There's a type of SSD designed for that but IDK what is called.

Use a ICC profile for the monitor, I have that monitor and it makes a huge difference between overly saturated and really almost perfect. Would be perfect if it were a IPS too, but that's asking too much.

I've been using a Cable Matters displayport cable ever since I brought it, works great and high quality.

Noiseblocker makes quiet fans, but if really want quiet, quality fans you need to look at Noctua. Grey ones are coming out soon if the brown doesn't fancy you.
