You've got 8 SATA devices for 6 ports and no mention of how you're going to handle that. It'd also be a nice idea to add a case and power supply.

Welp, didn't copy/paste right from the home lab thread, this is my NAS being turned into a VM box, it'll have a flashed M1015 (VT-d'd to my VM running the NAS).

The case will be my old Lian Li (PC-7something), the drives fit.

Aaaand it's got a 3 year old 750W Corsair PSU (I have a PSU replacement schedule in my calendar for it and my main PC's X-750).

Does custom water cooling use tons of watts? I mean at this point you can literally two of your computers with that. In any case, get to overclocking :P. This applies to single cards too of course, but if you're playing a game that can't possibly use 2x 770's worth of GPU (which is likely for some) make sure to frame limit. You save a TON of electricity, plus they run cooler, and smoother.

Grumpy old man

I'm looking at upgrading my ageing Radeon 5770 to either an R9 270, R7 265 or a 750ti, but I'm a bit worried my PSU might not be up to the task. It's an OCZ ZT 450w modular (80plus bronze) that I installed around the time I got the 5770 which means I've no idea where the remaining cables are, so I'm stuck with the 1xPCI-e 6pin connector.

My PC will mainly be used for semi-casual gaming, and although the 5770 does an admirable job running most things (1680x1050 on medium-high settings) I'd like to move up to a decent 1080p setup.

Is the 450w (and one 6-pin connector) PSU enough for the 270/265, or is it pushing it too much?

haha yeah i'm gonna get to OC within the month wanted to play some games for a month and see the difference. Gonna need to cool the CPU though its already running around 60C. Apparently 4.6 is safe for the 4670k gonna see if I can pull a bit more out of it safely.

do not under any circumstances reuse some ancient 140gig hard drive - if it's even compatible. Your PC would run like poo poo. Get a 130gig ssd and a 1tb WD red if you want more storage, you have ample budget room.

check manually to see if the fan is still spinning. Often the minimum fan speed of the cooler when the CPU is idle will be below the threshold set in the bios to report a fan error. If this is the case either ignore it, or reduce the alert threshold - my Asus mobo has it set at 600 rpm by default but the CPU cooler fan can happily run at 400 rpm.

I'm very pleased this thread exists - my PSU died this morning, so I trekked into town to find a replacement. Two out of the three shops I went to had nothing but corsair builder series PSUs, one even going so far as to tell me they'd stopped carrying antec ones due to reliability concerns and tried to sell me a 750w corsair builder with an amazing three year warranty!

The third shop had the Antec HCG 620M, so now I'm all set. Thanks, part thread, for saving me from a terrible PSU!

Does this look like a good list of parts for a primarily gaming PC? I'm not 100% sure about the PSU but it had the gold efficiency rating and was cheap. Also I'm not sure if its better to get 2x4GB of RAM or 1x8GB; does it make a difference? Also this CPU comes with a cooler so I shouldn't need to buy a dedicated one right?

Pretty sure it's better to get 2x4gb sticks, because then you can run dual channel. The exception would be if you wanted to get more, but couldn't afford it now.

I have an old Acer X233H that works just fine for a monitor. The total price is fine if it's for the performance that I'm looking for, but if I can get the same/similar performance for cheaper, that fine with me as well. My other question is that the OP says the power supply isn't very modular. Is it going to be a big pain in the rear end to fit in the case? Or is it just a tight fit or something like that?

Not really, you just might not be able to fit all the connectors behind the motherboard tray, but just tie up all the connectors you won't be using to make sure they don't obstruct airflow and you're good.

I think seagate is a decent brand but the main reason I'd get one right now is there's a 3TB 7200 rpm seagate on sale for $99.99 on newegg for the next day.

There's a distrust of Seagate, mainly based off reports of them failing sooner than WD/Hitachi. I don't know how reliable those reports are though - if I remember correctly, the early failure rate came from Backblaze, an online storage company that runs 40+ hard drives in a super-vibration heavy custom case with 24x7 usage, which isn't really comparable to home use.

What do you mean by "fine"? It will work, but it's going to limit your gaming performance (as I recall the SE was a cut-down 460, which is pretty drat old now).

I may have gotten used to it, but I can still play most of the games I frequent (Dark Souls, Warframe, GTA IV, Skyrim) at a steady 20-40 FPS and am pretty comfortbale with it. Would just upgrading the CPU/RAM/drive improve that noticeably and maybe let me turn on some of the shinier features? I'm going to be upgrading the monitor and GPU eventually later on, but for now this motherboard is on its way out and it needs replacing first.

Not really. Everything in your system is a bottleneck but games mostly rely on GPU power (there are odd ducks out there). Generally speaking you'll stay the same or maybe see a very slight increase in performance moving to a new cpu but keeping the same gpu.

what do you mean that hotkey disappeared


Well, my experiences in trying to get this motherboard fixed have not been pleasant.

First off, I got in touch with NCIX and inquired about RMAing. They have two options for RMAing: sending the mobo back for repairs, or "cross-shipping" which lets them send me a new mobo while I send the old one back. Obviously I want the second one because it's faster, but there's a problem: I'm only able to do cross-shipping if the motherboard wasn't physically damaged by me. And... it kind've was... sort of.



I broke a PCI securing clip when I was taking out the Graphics Card on day one.

This is an amazingly minuscule bit of damage on an insignificant and unrequired part, but apparently it can still count as HOLY poo poo PHYSICAL DAMAGE OMG NO CROSS-SHIPPING ALLOWED YOU RECKLESS MONSTER. So after a couple of days of back and forth with NCIX about RMA stuff and this "damage", even they aren't totally sure if this counts (it even looks more like the clip was missing rather than broken off, that's how minor the damage is), so they had to forward it to their vendors department and get an answer from them.

It's been another two days since then, and I've gotten no reply from them at all. So I went to log into the site and give them a nudge, but when I went to the Sign In page...



...And trying it on a different browser confirmed that this isn't on my end, NCIX really has lost their security certificate sometime during the last couple of days.

So, not able to contact them through the website, I went to do the only other thing left: give them a phone call...

"NCIX is closed on weekends!"



...So now I'm stuck twiddling my thumbs until Monday, where I'll hopefully be able to get in touch with them again. If you thought waiting a week for your last couple of computer parts to arrive was bad, try getting a faulty one fixed.

Well, it's no one's fault (save OpenSSL's devs and - depending on what conclusions you draw from the news - possibly the NSA) that Heartbleed happened. Almost every security certificate on the Internet got revoked over that one.

On the other hand, NCIX not getting off their asses to re-sign their site post-post-haste is a serious vote of no confidence.

Check benchmarks before you start spending - the 460se is old but the 750ti is basic entry level video card for gaming. It's possible the 460 could still be better.

Check benchmarks before you start spending - the 460se is old but the 750ti is basic entry level video card for gaming. It's possible the 460 could still be better.

Tom's has the 750 Ti 4 tiers above a 460SE. Not sure how that translates as I'm having difficulty finding benchmarks that span 3 generations of Nvidia.
