SavantPCs's Completed Build: Insane NZXT H200i Mini-ITX Build - Wohlwend Transport

someta 4 Builds 2 points 4 days ago

I saw this on the front page and literally started laughing. It just looks so complex and perfect and difficult to build. Really stunning, +1

This is kind of impressive. And by "kind of impressive", I mean very, very impressive and I want to build something just like it...

This is awesome! I'm hoping this is the next feature, it's worth it...

someta 4 Builds 1 point 11 days ago

Good call on not hooking up too many fans, I'll probably stick to chaining the two or three intake fans and then the two or three exhaust fans to two different headers, depending on what motherboard and case they ends up on. The active fan hub is also a good idea!

I have indeed read the description, and entire comment thread, including the comment where the poster said they spent only $800. I meant my comment more as a humorous take on the confusion in the comments, and, ironically, inadvertently added to the confusion.

someta 4 Builds 1 point 11 days ago

Wow! Thanks for the work you put into the response. I think I will try to get that 5 pack of PST F12 fans... The ones in the 5 pack I was thinking of are only the regular PST variety, so I suppose they could be used for intake and exhaust.

4TUN3's Completed Build: Imperial Corsair

someta 4 Builds 1 point 11 days ago

How quiet are those Arctic fans? I've always been disappointed in case fans, but my ARCTIC Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 is quiet enough I've been considering redoing my rig with a bunch of their PST F12 fans.

Excellent build. $1500 worth of quality for not $1500. It looks like you spent way more on it than you did, because of all the extra effort that went into the details. Nice job :)

This is probably the weirdest build I've seen here. It makes me really happy. :)

OolonCaluphid's Completed Build: £1000 Ryzen 'MiniRipper'

someta 4 Builds 2 points 26 days ago

I have to say, the pictures look pretty good! Shows off the good components.

Also, If you want something even more powerful and less intuitive, try RawTherapee.

mongrel_stu's Completed Build: Ripper

someta 4 Builds 1 point 26 days ago

This is awesome. Seriously awesome. Good on you for doing all this and not giving up halfway through.

Also, do you plan on using different brands of HDDs for the array? I know some people are adamant about using different brands of hard drives from different batches to reduce the likelihood of multiple failures from a bad batch.

Troika's Completed Build: The budget build of budget builds

I haven't had a chance to personally test it yet, so I didn't want to mention it... But oh, am I excited!

Not a bad build, overlooking the illegitimate Windows key*.


*This might sound stupid, but Linux is your best friend if you don't want to buy an illegal Windows key (which, frankly, you should never do). The driver support for old hardware is pretty good in my experience, and the game support is okay.

No, it won't run every game, but it'll run enough to get you going while you're saving up for a legitimate key, if you still decide to go down the Windows path.

You know what? Fine. Take my upvote :D

This is amazing... I hope it gets featured.

Venlaw's Completed Build: Daily Driver - LinuxBox 3.0

Finally, a Linux build. Happy to see someone else understands Linux works just fine for general use (and it's great for programming!). Well done!

Forum Topic "Linux on ryzen"

someta 4 Builds 1 point 4 months ago

I may be too late, but it's only been two days...

Stick to a recent kernel and Linux should work okay, I would think. If I'm not mistaken, linux-4.15 is when they added official Vega support that the Vega chip on the 2200G needs. Like Memo1010 said, test it with a live usb first.

Me before seeing the CPU cooler:

That's dumb, basing your core build off a single cooler.

Me after seeing the CPU cooler:

O.O I want. Limit my choices all you want, I need this cooler. It looks like a jet engine in your computer.... I TAKE IT ALL BACK!

EDIT: Fixed formatting...

ThriftStoreRaider's Completed Build: he protec, he atac, but most importantly he cheap

I actually installed a busted CD drive into my machine. Like time actually went into this.

+1 for that alone. Effort pays off!

lodisknight's Completed Build: Bleed Cubbie Blue

someta 4 Builds 2 points 6 months ago

Fair enough!

I also always build with the mindset that I want to be able to add something down the line, even if I may not actually do it. I hate feeling like I “can’t” do something.

I like that approach too...

lodisknight's Completed Build: Bleed Cubbie Blue

someta 4 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

This is really clean looking!

One question - why the SFX PSU? I know people use them when fitting a full size graphics card into that case, but you don't have one installed? Are you planning on having space for one later for a reason? It seems more expensive to get an SFX PSU and adapter bracket than a decent ATX PSU...

zixpt's Completed Build: BRW - Black Red White

Nifty. I haven't seen peltier cooling on a liquid loop before...

Someone should feature this. Hint hint mods.

Are you going to run Windows on the machine under normal use, or was it just for testing? I don't know about hydrological modeling, but I thought a decent number of modeling and computational machines run some Linux distribution...

ApocPony's Completed Build: AMD Console Fusion

someta 4 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

Yeah, these Ryzen APUs are nothting to scoff at! I was really impressed by what my GT 1030 could do, and the 2400G is about the same, with the 2200G not far behind! Pretty impressive for a hundred bucks.

Thanks very much for the kind words.

You're welcome :)

ApocPony's Completed Build: AMD Console Fusion

You have no idea how much I adore ultra-small builds, and the quality of this one makes me like them even more!

Well done.

Well, well done. Maybe even a little burnt.

MikezBikez's Completed Build: Cerebro

someta 4 Builds 15 points 6 months ago

Go ahead and enjoy gaming on your Titan V while I'm sitting here playing DOOM 2016 on my GT 1030. No really, enjoy it.

I'm not salty and jealous at all....

someta's Completed Build: I Have No Name

someta submitter 4 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

I would imagine it could be because the 1300X has no integrated graphics and there's no RAM (but you got that one). The B350 Tomahawk has video ports so you can use an APU, but I don't believe it has an onboard GPU.

The first thing I can think of is that the PC is booting and can't initialize the graphics card because it's not there. That is, of course, if it can even try to initialize a graphics card when there's no RAM installed. I don't know if it can, so it's entirely possibly the debug light is on because of the lack of RAM, and it can't even get to checking the graphics card.

So, the DRAM light is likely on because there's no RAM, and the debug light is either on because there's no RAM or because there's no graphics card.

Also, try posting in the forums for more help. You'll get a wider audience.

pdschmidt's Completed Build: Ryzen Micro ITX Build

someta 4 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

I just used the bolts/nuts that came with the case, they worked great! I had to mess with some pliers on the mesh to get it to line up with the bolts, but it worked great!

Awesome!

Thanks!

No prob! :)

lyquid_pcs's Completed Build: Mighty Nano

someta 4 Builds 2 points 8 months ago

You really don't see this kind of thing every day... I like it, +1.

pdschmidt's Completed Build: Ryzen Micro ITX Build

someta 4 Builds 1 point 8 months ago

This is great, but how did you do that side window to mesh mod? It looks riveted or maybe affixed with hex bolts, but I can't find much more information on that mod.

Someone on the OCN Metis mega-thread did one, but I haven't seen instructions anywhere...

Regardless, this is a +1 from me. Well done!

+1 for IKEA counter top tables the awesome pc!

Eltech's Completed Build: RB-P3

someta 4 Builds 2 points 8 months ago

Goodness, that is quite far back.

Yeah, the original SD card that came in the kit was maybe 4 gigs and had Debian 6 or 7 based Rasbian on it...

I would say an upgrade is worth while if are interested of the Pi 3

I may get one to play around with....

Eltech's Completed Build: RB-P3

someta 4 Builds 2 points 8 months ago

Great, I will let you know very soon

Thanks!

It'll be cool to find out.

I think so too.

Eltech's Completed Build: RB-P3

someta 4 Builds 2 points 8 months ago

I have not tried OpenArena. It's a free open source FPS game Quake3 Arena, correct?

It is indeed an open source clone of Quake 3 Arena. It's really fun, you may get hooked on it if you try it!

I will let you know and see how it goes

Thanks! Be warned though, you may like it!

Is there a preference? Singe-player and Multiplayer? Or does it not matter as long you know it runs?

It doesn't matter to me, I've always just wanted to know if it really would run!

Eltech's Completed Build: RB-P3

someta 4 Builds 2 points 8 months ago

Not even a Pi 2. The original Pi had a modified Pi Model B, with a single core at 700MHz and either 256 or 512 MB of RAM. I have a 256 MB model.

I think it's probably worth the upgrade, I've been meaning to upgrade for a long time. RasPies are handy for mini servers and whatnot, so I'm sure I'd find a use for it.

Eltech's Completed Build: RB-P3

someta 4 Builds 2 points 8 months ago

I did not realize a Pi could run an MATE desktop, albeit a customized one... Then again, I've only got an a original Model B, so I'm mostly stuck with stuff like Arch Linux ARM for maximum performance.

Think a Pi3 is worth an upgrade? It is far faster than the original...

Eltech's Completed Build: RB-P3

someta 4 Builds 2 points 8 months ago

Have you tried running OpenArena on the Pi3? I've heard it's possible, but I don't have a 3 to test it on, only a Pi1 Model B. I could see a fun little OpenArena/Quake3 LAN party on these puppies.

How is Fedora 27 working with Ryzen? Is that using kernel 4.13?

I may have to investigate Fedora for my Ryzen Linux box. I've got openSUSE running right now, but I'm open to changes...

Forum Topic "PSA: Windows Keys and Alternatives (Shameless Linux Plug)"

someta submitter 4 Builds 1 point 8 months ago

Thank you!

Linux works great for most tasks except AAA title games but you can run Linux until you get the money and just dual boot and choose your operating system at startup based on what you want to do.

This is exactly what I'm talking about!

Forum Topic "Old router to boost wifi"

someta 4 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

No problem, good luck!

Forum Topic "Old router to boost wifi"

someta 4 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

An access point is wired to the main router, a bridge connects to the router over wireless, so the only thing wired to the bridge is the computer you want internet access for.

Access points go

current router -> Ethernet -> access point -> WiFi to device

Bridges go

current router -> WiFi -> bridge -> Ethernet to device

I would suggest at least trying bridge mode, if available on the old router. You wouldn't have to wire anything to the current router.

Forum Topic "Old router to boost wifi"

someta 4 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

Respectfully, not enough latency to consider making a booster out of a strainer... In fact, it would probably work better to wire to the router as a bridge (if it supports it, not all do). I've wired an ASUS RT-N66U as a wireless bridge before, and I ended up with a far better connection than using a WiFi adapter.

Setting up the old router as a repeater would be an option, but that's where you might get a slower connection and increased latency, as you are rebroadcasting a wireless connection. As a repeater, all wireless connections going to the repeater get funneled back to the router over wireless, same as an access point does with a wired connection. With a wireless bridge, you are using one central unit to pick up the wireless signal and sending it over a hardwired connection. Think of a bridge like a gigantic WiFi adapter that can connect to multiple devices over Ethernet.

Forum Topic "34' vs 27' battle"

someta 4 Builds 1 point 9 months ago

I don't have a direct answer, but I can offer a word of advice: try to find a store nearby that sells 4K 27" monitors. I have a 27" 1440p monitor and it's just about the perfect pixel density. My 4K "monitor" (actually a TV) is 40", and I feel anything smaller would be too hard to read text on without scaling up everything, and not all programs like that. If you can play around with a 27" 4K monitor in store, it'll give you an idea of what it would be like to own one.
