I shall consult with my friends on the situation we want to take with users we don't have a direct affiliation with atm. Chances are we are going to be very very strict. Especially with my most recent task of consulting with Marc Watson (@Marc_IRL) about his own FTB server and managing players
We never wanted to do that, the cost of it is heavily outweighed when you get up to a year of rent, sometimes not even that, a 6 core server with 16GB of ram is stupidly expensive to rent.
Its whitelisted, go look at the website, you'll have to convince me to let you on
For light editing the 3570k is fine whenever i've needed too
Performance is fine actually, though forge does better save optimisations. There's no lag at all with the savings, not to mention if there does we can just load a ramdisk. I don't feel pressured into anything more at this time
The thing with EVGA.. they really look so dull :| Its just a square box and all heat has to be dumped out the back, Also everyone seems to have an EVGA sig 2 why not be different :P
I knew you'd be around at some point :D
The parts choices were actually all mine but the case, that is of course personal preference.
The phantoms EPS hole is a fair pain to get a large cable through, he did just want to get it running so didn't pay a great close attention to getting it decent, though I do recommend he does move it to make it look nicer ¬.^
As for the 670 its been the card I am after, though a motherboard was what I needed to change first.
It is on display and was in a crappy old case till recently, the old case had 1 80mm fan mount and that was it, it wasn't quiet at all, and now under load you can just about here it otherwise its deadly silent
hmmm this is the one i meant to link with it, thanks for pointing it out!:)
Some people only look at certain parts of these builds i guess, i tend to look at the pictures first
Couldn't really resist :)
Sure do, 70/20 fibre line, and it works fine as a server, been happily running for about a month now actually in the final configuration. There isn't really many players, the server is whitelisted.
Technically this is a dedicated server.. its on 24/7
Storage is just a generic 300GB drive, i think its an old WD can't really remember though came out an older PC
Its not purchased yet.. theres still room to change :)
Nice to see this finally :D
Yeah, I'ma jealous of the GPU though ¬.¬
The red cable coming down the top to the middle of the motherboard is supplemental PCI-e power, helps when having powerful graphics cards installed
Linux is very picky about the wifi drivers and stuff, you need to do a fair bit of playing around sometimes to get them to work, especially if its a nonstandard wifi setup
The only real benchmark with minecraft is having an 512x texture pack loaded with Sonic Ethers shader mod/water shader/any other shader you can add along side it.. thats the only real thing to push minecraft to the limit
I know, thats the reason we went for XFX :)
I agree, and as soon as you stream your FPS will be destroyed, live encoding video for streaming is a stressful task on a PC, a 6670 will not cope at all, there is a reason why people buy nice high end graphics cards when streaming, because they are needed.
I doubt you'll have any decent form of FPS on this while streaming.. and video editing will take ages too.. there are much better builds for $900
Really nice build, lucky catch on that case! Also I spy a Model M!
D'awww I thought it was something awesomesauce
Nice, but mind explaining this http://puu.sh/2cGxI It seems to be broken at the moment though :)
I'd just be careful sitting close to it, i know from experience that using a TV like screen for PCs gives me headaches (I have a sony TV w/ VA panel as my 3rd monitor, tried using it as my main before i got my IPS and it was a no go)
They are there, theres 2 in 5.25"->3.5" adaptors in the ODD bays
Use the mobo box, or even better a piece of non-glossy card
Shouldn't get anywhere near 350W load, 170W at most, if it fails at that then theres a serious problem..
So its actually a $400 monitor still.. mind you the $150 off offer is pretty good i must admit, but it wont stay like that
"acer 120Hz" a model number would be useful, and what discounts you may have had on it.. as you have no completed builds listed i can't assume anything
By university he means via Dreamspark premium, which only really university's can afford. If you aren't at university you're pretty much out of luck.
Where 120Hz monitors sounds great, they don't come cheap.. 60Hz has been standard for a long time, and 60Hz is more than acceptable for most gaming
You are being very rude and childish now, I was giving feedback on the build which is more than you have done. I'd rather not argue over someone else's build, so lets leave our disagreements in our minds now.
Er I have 2 builds? My desktop and my game server, And constructive criticism is the best form of feedback you can receive.
Very nice build cable management is A+, but the case isn't being used to its potential with the ATX board, I hope it gets a board that suites it in the future, a case is pretty much for life though, i don't condone you spending extra on it. One thing i want to know, do you have a storage drive in the machine? SSDs fill up mighty fast :)
Z68 chip set supports CPUs with unlocked multipliers.. its exactly the same with the Z77...
Z68 is unlocked.. all Z boards are unlocked..
The voltage will probably get pulled up to the higher value, at least its all in dual channel atm..
If you actually use the system in your programs cuda can be very powerful for some operations, I believe they work well with any floating point calculations.
The only thing i have noticed is the Box for your CPU only shows a 3570 (non-k) but you have a 3570k listed, is that just a mistake with the box?
There has been a lot of problems with the FX series temperature sensors being really dodgy, there was someone a few builds back with the same chip and was only showing the package temperature at 10C in an ambient room of 20C which is not possible.
I suspect a sensor is broken, because that is not correct, also do AMD CPUs only have 1 temp sensor? Odd
You definitely need to work on the cable management, the HDDs are in the wrong way... the cables should be hidden away on the other side.. otherwise a balanced build.
My thought exactly, unless he is running it outside in the cold I wont believe it.
10C for temps? Are they adjusted to reflect temps at 0C? If not i really dont find that believable
Personally, I wouldn't change a thing, a great all round gaming PC :)
Looks great! But your Feedback forum link is broken! should be http://pcpartpicker.com/forums/forum/1-site-feedback-and-feature-requests/
Ahh I see, Personally i wouldn't have the LEDs connected, so its not shining unwanted light everywhere :)
Fancy case for a NAS, but nice, very balanced for the job
Not sure where you have your information, but the i3 3225 has about the same Gaming performance as an 8350, and a fair bit cheaper. Also I have a $100 z77 motherboard.. the 3770k has no advantage in gaming performance over the 3570k, and general tasks a basic i3 could perform, the 3570k is still the best gaming chip on the market, there is no doubt about that.
