I've been getting random BSODs usually with 1 of the 2 errors, system service exception or irql not less or equal. They generally only happen while I'm playing games or watching Netflix. I'm not sure what the cause is. Can anyone help? I'll post dumps in a second.
User avatar #27450 to #27449 - hwangw (3 hours ago) [-]
I'm not sure if it's better to have too many or too few of these but this is what I've got since my fresh install in October.

Is there anything I could change for better performance at a similar price?
It would be good if it's at least £950 or lower.
I am planning SLI-ing and upgrading to 16GB ram sometime after I've built it for 4k gaming.

If i save well enough I should have the money for it in a couple months.

You probably want a SSD in there at some point. It wouldn't have to be too big, just enough for your OS and whatever programs you want to run.

I'm not sure your chosen psu would be able to handle a pair of 970s, so I upped it to a 750W (Also yours was non-modular, while this one is at least semi-modular). The 4790k is a lot better than the 4770k.
User avatar #27452 to #27447 - sniffythebird ONLINE (2 hours ago) [-]
Good choice going with the 4790K instead of the 4770K.

Even though they're almost the same, the 90 has better temps and overclocking headroom.
User avatar #27448 to #27447 - dumbassvtwo (3 hours ago) [-]
Cheers mate.

Hopefully I can get this built within the next month or two.

Does anyone else have similar files in their C: drive? I'm talking about the top 2 with code-like file names. I can't access them, I can't even change security permissions or touch any files on the inside.
User avatar #27437 to #27435 - serhiy (7 hours ago) [-]
yeah, I think its where paged files are stored but I can be 100% bullshitting
User avatar #27441 to #27437 - istartedthewar ONLINE (6 hours ago) [-]
The pagefile is stored in the windows folder.

You should be good to delete it.

so what does that mean?

Delete or no?

Alright guys, here's the case.

I have 2 hard drives hooked up to my PC. Both have windows 7 installed.
I want to remove Windows 7 from Drive #2. I also have data on Drive #2. I want to remove Windows 7 to get more space on Drive #2.

How do I go about doing that without formatting? Or can I format Win 7 without affecting the data as well because windows 7 is partioned?
User avatar #27436 to #27431 - Mortuus ONLINE (7 hours ago) [-]
Just delete the windows folder on the drive you want to remove W7 from.

That should be alright.

Hello tech board. A month or so ago I asked for replacement suggestions for my Logitech G35 (as the braiding on the wires were coming loose and silver wire was protruding from everywhere) and many of you have suggested the HyperX Cloud.

Now, I think the audio is of the same quality but now I have a humongous issue with the mic. Point being, it's too quiet. I have tried everything that I know of. What I know of, however, is limited. I basically fiddled around with the mic boost and mic volume settings.

So my question is, would a DAC/AMP resolve this issue? It'd be nice to improve audio quality, but the main point being if it could resolve the low microphone volume issue.

If a DAC/AMP would indeed resolve the issue, do I have to shell out 100€ for a decent DAC/AMP or are there any cheaper ones available that'll do the job just fine?

Otherwise, I thought of getting the Antlion Modmic hoping that would resolve the issue, though after seeing that the impedance on that mic is the same as the HyperX Cloud one, I don't think it'll be an improvement.

I need some serious help. I'm trying to run another OS (Back Track R3 which is now Kali OS) on my computer. I'm using an HP Mini Netbook, windows 7 starter. But my screen broke, so now i'm stuck with an external monitor. Problem is, my monitor won't display the boot menu. My netbook screen will show that it is booting up, because the screen has light on it, although I can't see any of it. So my netbook screen is white, so i know for sure it IS going through the boot, but my monitor display won't work for that. After it finishes with the boot, I have to re-plug in my monitor after unplugging once boot is done, and then my login screen is available to me on the monitor. I can't load any of the boot screen/BIOS stuff, and even if I did, i'd still have a black monitor screen, so i couldn't see what I was doing. How do I fix it so I can see the boot screen on my monitor? HP Mini Netbook is my laptop, connected to an HP vs17 monitor.

This is really important, any and all help is very much appreciated. Thanks guys.

in control panel set the external as the primary monitor
User avatar #27430 to #27427 - gmrain (9 hours ago) [-]
Didn't work. My computer acts as if nothing is plugged into it UNTIL it reaches the logon screen. Then it switches right to the monitor.
I obviously can't switch the boot disk while im in an os (or can I?), so any other ideas?
User avatar #27425 to #27424 - istartedthewar ONLINE (12 hours ago) [-]
My solution is always mash f12, f11, and delete until something pops up.

I bought a Turtle Beach Ear Force N11 headset and can't get it to work as both headphones and microphone, and it only has one black male plug rather than a green and pink. Any ideas?
User avatar #27423 to #27421 - kober ONLINE (13 hours ago) [-]
The N11 was intended for Nintendo systems, so you should be able to plug it straight into your Nintendo device's 3.5mm analog slot like any other headphones. If you're trying to use it with a PC, you may be able to plug it into the green slot and get both microphone and speaker capabilities, but since it is a Nintendo headset, that isn't really guaranteed.

It should have came with an adapter to split it into separate mic/audio streams

So, /technology/, what's your recommendations on computer fans? Just today, I upgraded my rig with 3 Enermax T.B. Silence 120mm case fans, and a Cougar Vortex PWM 120mm for my CPU cooler. Besides that, the only other fan is the generic 120mm in the Thermaltake PSU.

Now, the whole thing is so quiet, that the Playstation 2 I have set up next to it, and even the sound of a toilet filling in the next room are louder than it is with a Distributed.net client flying full on.

Thing is, the last time I bought a funky fan, the lubricant in it's "special bearing design" turned into glue after about 2 years, despite claims that it would last around 6. What are your recommendations for quiet fans that last absolute ages?
User avatar #27442 to #27389 - voltkills (6 hours ago) [-]
i put SP120s on my H105 radiator, great performance and not too loud. (though I didnt connect them to the mobo so i have no control over their speed, they sorta just run at max all the time i think)

User avatar #27397 to #27389 - kober ONLINE (23 hours ago) [-]
I have a handful of Enermax T.B. Silence red LED fans in two of my systems. They're good and look neat, although to achieve silence I still have to lower their RPMs slightly. I also have three Corsair SP120s, two for my radiator and the third for when I upgrade to a 360mm radiator which are configured to run at 70% fan speed and then increase depending on CPU temperatures, achieving silence outside of games and rendering. In my opinion, the best fans are made by Noctua, but they're a little ugly for my taste.
I've heard good things about Cougar's hydro-bearing fans.
User avatar #27398 to #27397 - mechanicexplain ONLINE (23 hours ago) [-]
All of mine are being controlled by the MB headers, so they all run nice and slow.
User avatar #27418 to #27398 - kober ONLINE (20 hours ago) [-]
My airflow fans (Enermax T.B. Silence fans) are all connected to a fan controller in my case. My SP120s are connected to the motherboard and configured to a fan curve. Myaaaaaa computer is, as a result, completely silent, to the point where the only indication that my computer is even on is the glow of LEDs.

Noctua fans have a rep for not wanting to die.

They're also expensive as shit.
User avatar #27393 to #27390 - mechanicexplain ONLINE (23 hours ago) [-]
Yeah, noticed these on the shelf next to the ones I bought:

www.microcenter.com/product/405571/NF-F12_PWM_120mm_Case_Fan

But I wasn't prepared to drop $120 on fans.
User avatar #27395 to #27393 - Mortuus ONLINE (23 hours ago) [-]
If you can get over the price and the shit-brown color theme, they are some of the best fans you can buy.

Well I remember from a gradeschool science experiment that there's actually a significant endothermic reaction when mixing a acid with baking soda.

So, apart from explosions, the PC would be kept cool.
User avatar #27391 to #27388 - Mortuus ONLINE (23 hours ago) [-]
Istartedthewar has some idea involving soda.

I'm almost curious enough to find some shitty used radiators and a cheap pump and just go for it.

My theoretical mountain dew cooled PC for the extra MLG factor

Also if you plan on doing stupid shit make the reservoir a mountain dew bottle
User avatar #27407 to #27403 - Mortuus ONLINE (23 hours ago) [-]
This is starting to become an actual plan.

I'm gonna go ahead and just go to bed so I don't make a decision like this, while I'm tired.
User avatar #27413 to #27407 - istartedthewar ONLINE (23 hours ago) [-]
It's a great idea.

Use it to cool your main PC.
And use freshly carbonated, non-diet syrup filled mountain dew, it's thicker so it has better thermal conductivity.
#27404 to #27403 - sniffythebird ONLINE (23 hours ago) [-]
Oh god...    
   
Dude......... okay, so green tubing, mt.dew bottle for a reservoir, and something else that's Doritos themed.

User avatar #27412 to #27410 - istartedthewar ONLINE (23 hours ago) [-]
With enough caulk/ pipe sealant anything would be possible.
User avatar #27394 to #27391 - sniffythebird ONLINE (23 hours ago) [-]
I'd imagine freezing temperatures can't be good either?

Liquid expands, and the pressure damages stuff?
User avatar #27396 to #27394 - Mortuus ONLINE (23 hours ago) [-]
It might be time to sell the old 780 and do stupid shit.

#27384 - anonymous (01/27/2015) [-]
So I spilled a small amount of soda on my tower. It got on the motherboard and into the fan. I cleaned it up best I could but my PC won't turn on at all. The fans will turn just a little but no use. Am I screwed? Is there any ways to fix it?
User avatar #27385 to #27384 - istartedthewar ONLINE (01/27/2015) [-]
remove the motherboard, go buy a bunch of rubbing alcohol and cheap toothbrushes, clean everything.

That's your only hope.

My laptop has that exact wifi/bluetooth adapter.   
   
And holy shit it's caused a lot of problems early on. Shitty drivers from Intel, but it's finally fixed I think.

User avatar #27411 to #27409 - istartedthewar ONLINE (23 hours ago) [-]
Yeah, it was supposed to be intel's "high end" chip, but I still have the occasional issue here and there with it..
#27414 to #27411 - sniffythebird ONLINE (23 hours ago) [-]
Can't say I know that much about wifi chips, but over 800Mbit/s on AC when it's actually working and not having driver problems is pretty sweet.

We just have a crappy router at home, but when I visit my friend who has an AC-68U and bring my laptop, I get perfect speeds.

But the signal is no way near as strong as my desktop's wifi adapter (PCE-AC68). That thing is godly. It's even further away from the router than my laptop, but pulls a better signal.

Ok guys, question about what language I should learn. This would probably be better for the advice board but fuck it.

Should I learn Java or some other bitch language or should I continue on with C# and C++? If I learned Java or JS, it would probably help me more with potential co-op employers, but C# and C++ would probably help me more when I enter the real world (and right now with side projects).

So just wondering what I should learn. Pic related, it's the language I would like to learn most, but idk if it will help me much
User avatar #27381 to #27380 - Mortuus ONLINE (01/27/2015) [-]
The consensus on this board was Java is the best option, but if you have some understanding of C, why not carry through with that?

I'm a bionerd, not a Programmer though.
User avatar #27382 to #27381 - ferrettamer (01/27/2015) [-]
I understand the basics of Java, but I'd need to learn more to be hired by anybody. I know enough C# and C++ to say I'm competent in it, and if somebody hired me to program in one of those languages, they likely wouldn't be disappointed with my knowledge of the language (they'd probably be disappointed about something though). Once out of school, I'd likely either program at some company in C++ or start up my own venture. But the problem is, the C co-op jobs are few and far between, and they are very competitive. 95% of the programming co-op jobs are Java or JS. So I'm just unsure which I should pursue right now, ya feel me? Eventually, I'd have to learn both C++ and Java anyway (though I don't think my school offers any C# classes ); )

But I guess you're right, I should continue with C, and upload some projects to set myself apart from the others applying to C positions, as I could probably learn quicker than doing Java

Our ISP's are upgrading speeds around every 6 months. Year ago my speed was 40Mb/s. Now it's 100. Fastest contract was 150Mb/s 1 year ago, now it's 400Mb/s.

the way windows works is just so comical, everything needs other apps to work, it was originally to make things efficient when everything was so much weaker, but now it's just slowing us and our ssds down
User avatar #27373 to #27372 - istartedthewar ONLINE (01/27/2015) [-]
I dunno.

Windows 10 seems incredibly smooth, and recently windows has been integrating other necessary features into the OS, such as ISO mounting, and it will once again have a great browser with the final release. Also, the new calculator app in windows 10 is also pretty great, it has some fantastic features.

By the final release it will be the one OS to rule them all.
User avatar #27374 to #27373 - wotterpatch (01/27/2015) [-]
Holy crap i didn't even see the new calculator.
Niiiice.

And i have to agree it is very smooth so far. It's fixing the only thing with windows 8 i really hated, the inconsistency.

I doubt i'll really use cortana, it feels weird talking to my computer, but who knows. Maybe it'll be useful

Hello everyone. I have no idea where to ask this, but I was hoping someone could help me. I've been having horrible DPC latency issues on two different PC's, and I've tried every mother fucking trick in the book to fix them, but to no avail. On one PC, the nVdia driver takes about 10ms to process, turning the audio and the framerate into a choppy mess, while on the other, there are more things in parallel that have about 2ms, 3ms etc. This is driving me up the fucking wall. I need some help.
User avatar #27356 to #27355 - faggotishshit ONLINE (01/26/2015) [-]
I did, indeed. The highest execution time I get from nvlddmkm.sys, an nVidia driver, which can go up to 10ms, and I also get a ton of pagefaults, for some reason, and most of them happen in Firefox.
