I think you are forgetting that this is at 12 volts, so even 10 watts at that point is .8 amps. (think of the PIE triangle).

Assuming OP has the 120mm version of the Thermaltake water 3.0, according to the manufacturer, the pump is drawing 0.175amps (@ 12vDC) and the Arctic Liquid Freezer 120 is drawing 0.25 amps max (@ 12vDC). So if OP has a 1A header, he/she should° be able to power both pumps (not counting their fans).

And, if you want to calculate watts from those numbers (which you easily can do) just to see who was right, OP was correct as the Thermaltake is 2.1 watts and the Arctic is 3 watts. (OP said it was 2-3 watts, so he/she pretty much nailed it).

Np, actually, if you wanted, you could drop it down another $10 by switching out the gpu to a single fan, but I figured for a $10 it would be nice to have the increased cooling performance from a dual fan design. Anyway, good luck :)

You could do this. I switched you to 8th gen Intel, the cpus are going to perform about the same. However, there is no reason for you to go with a k chip (overclockable) but then a B250 board (which doesn't support overclocking). So I swapped out for a slightly better cooler so you can ideally hit the 4GHz turbo speeds on the 8400 which should end up giving you some nice performance on a newer series of chips. I aIso swapped out your GPU for a much much better one. (http://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-1060-3GB-vs-Nvidia-GTX-1050-Ti/3646vs3649) It's not even a competition between those two. Hope that helps.

No, here that is for a permit

For a license (in NJ) you need to take a road test at the dept. of motor vehicle after having had your permit and driven for 6 months (you also need to be at least 17)

"Student Learner's Permit

If you are 16 years old, visit your local NJ MVC office with your driver's education instructor to obtain your student learner's permit. You'll need to:

Provide a primary form of identification, such as your:

  • Birth certificate.
  • U.S. passport.
  • Certificate of citizenship or naturalization.
  • Provide proof of enrollment in a Driver's Ed course.
  • Provide a signed letter of consent from your parent or legal guardian.
  • Pass a vision exam.
  • Pass the DMV written test.
  • Pay the $10 student learner's permit fee.

When you complete the minimum of 6 hours of driver's training, you'll need to return to your local New Jersey MVC office to get your student learner's permit validated.

You must complete driver's education and get your permit validated to begin your supervised driving practice."

And then, from the same source for the actual license:

"Provisional Driver License

Once you turn 17 years old and have practiced supervised driving for a minimum of 6 months, you'll be able to obtain your probationary New Jersey driver's license.

You'll need to visit your local NJ MVC office and:

  • Pass your road test. Schedule your DMV road test online.
  • Satisfy the NJ MVC 6 Point ID verification requirements. Use the MVC ID brochure or online document selector for help with choosing which documents you need."

Where I live you have to complete a state approved driver's education course, pass a 50 question multiple choice test with an 80 or higher, then you go for 6 hours of behind the wheel with a state approved driving school, then after that you just kind of go for it. But here (from what I've heard) it's more difficult than most states.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Just looking for a pair of boots..."

  • 22 months ago

I had looked at a pair of Danner's a couple days ago and I was very tempted to purchase them. (Actually it was like the same day I posted this topic, so I guess it was last night {this morning} lol). What I like about the pair I looked at was that they met all of my "needs", we're above ankle, EH rating (and puncture resistant rating which is another plus), oil/slip resistance, and zip off sides. Plus they weren't too° expensive. (They are also listed as body fluid borne pathogen resistant, but I'm not exactly sure what standardizes them as such, being as any watertight shoe should be relatively fluid resistant {if anyone else has some more incite on that one please let me know}).

Honestly, right now I'm stuck between them and another pair of my Bates. I looked at the red wings, and they look great, but ones with similar features to the Danner's I looked at or my Bates are much more expensive. I'll get reimbursed $100 for whatever I spend on boots, but some of the similar featured Red Wings are looking at almost $350. While I definitely don't want to cheap out on my boots, if I go with the Bates or the Danner's I'll only end up spending (at most) $100 of my own money, and by my best guess these boots are gonna need to go pretty soon and I can't realistically spend $250 ($350-100) on new boots at the moment. So it looks like it's between Danner's and Bates (for now).

Yeah it's a pair of Bates I have now that I really like. My only complaint is that I don't believe them to be waterproof (resistant). And it gets irritating try to work while tip toeing around water or snow like it's lava just so I don't have to test their waterproofness. I have walked through puddles and snow before in them, but the fabric sides look like they will soak up water like a sponge, so I try to avoid any water that height. I had used this cheap water resistant spray (like Kiwi or something) a couple months back, but I don't really know if it works or how well.

  • 22 months ago

I am rather confident that they are compatible, however, I figured I might as well check to be sure. But, when I visited the Asus product page for the card ( https://www.asus.com/us/Graphics-Cards/PH-GTX1060-6G/specifications/ ) it says the dimensions are "18.3 " x 12.1 " x 3.8 " Inch [or] 7.2 x 4.76 x1.5 Centimeter"

Now, maybe the dimensions they listed aren't wrong, however I would bet my soul that they are. 18.3 " x 12.1 " x 3.8 " Inch[es] would make the GPU larger than a shoe box. (For reference, I just measured a shoe box I happened to have for size 11.5 men's sneakers, it is 13" x 8" x 4.5") There is no way that that graphics card is that big, there just isn't. That case fits three fan gpus without a hassle, I wouldn't worry about that one fan card.

If it was crashing when you ran it above it's rated speed, then it stopped crashing back within it's rated speed, I think it's not unreasonable to say that's likely the cause. Just stick it back to 3200 where it is rated and leave it alone, overclocking your ram beyond 3200 has minimal returns.

Corsair Links software has issues like that. When I got my 8600k it would number the cores as cores 2-7, and it would list a 6th temperature sensor on my board at 113-116°C which would then shoot down to 0°C and disappear. The moral of the story, it's wrong. And, even if it's not, it's not a problem for the temps to be at 0C, that's cool, but not too cool for it to still function.

  • 23 months ago
  • 1 point

But that's not necessary going to be the case. You need to factor price/performance. For example, hypothetically say a new generation of gpus comes out. Maybe the price will go down of the previous generations, but the performance difference over the price might make it not make sense to go with the older generation. For example, the i5 6600k is probably cheaper now than when it first came out, however, the i3 8350k, whcih happens to be $50 cheaper, performs better. Or, another example on the gpu side. The cheapest GTX 970 on PCPP is $280+, it is outperformed by the 1060-3GB which is $50 cheaper.

You can't just rely on the fact that it should drive prices down, because that's not always the case. Yes, new hardware is hopefully better, so it should make old hardware cheaper because of lesser demand. However, that maybe people think the same as you did, so demand will still exist, in the case of gpus, supply may decrease because production of the older generation will likely cease or be significantly reduced, there are a ton of other factors too, you should just wait until the hardware is available and seeing what the outlook is then, right now the best you can do is fondle a crystal ball and hope your guess is right.

After release of 9th Gen Intel CPUs and 1180Ti, that's when I will buy the stuff for this build.

So to be clear, you plan to build this (with 2x1080tis, and an 8700k) AFTER the new generation of gpus comes out, and the 9th generation of Intel cpus? That's doesn't make any sense. You are paying nearly $4k for this build, but you want to wait until you can build it on old components?

No, if you don't want to overclock you don't have to. Aside from that, most NVidia gpus "overclock" themselves on their own. They adjust to compensate for heavier loads and adjust to compensate for higher temperatures.

I would say you don't really need a ups, but if you are editing more seriously then that's probably not a bad thing to have. But what you most certainly don't need is that $55 wifi adapter as your motherboard comes with a wifi adapter. Both are 802.11ac standards so presuming you even had wifi speeds fast enough to be restricted by network standards, you wouldn't see a benefit with the aftermarket as it's the same cap.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Worth waiting for i5-9500?"

  • 23 months ago

For price/performance, the i5 8600 is not really a great choice is a terrible choice. It is a ~$40 price difference over the i5 8400 for marginal performance differences. It really depends on OPs usage, however, their are more optimal choices than the overpriced i5 8600.

And, at that, it's too broad of a statement to say "Best CPU to use is i7-8700k" because that's not always going to be the case. If OP is strictly gaming and going Intel (since he is also running macOS) then the 8700k still may not be the best choice. If you are going for price/performance it's definitely not, but with that said, if you are just stating what's "the best" then a delidded 8086k might be better. And, that's of course assuming that OP is gaming, but for complex workloads without cost being a factor he/she might as well just choose the i9 7980XE.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Is the resale value of a delidded CPU more or less?"

  • 23 months ago
  • 2 points

Well what you are going to see is some people shy away from it because they will see a delidded 6700k and think oh, this guy has been heavily overclocking this thing for the years it's been out and he's now trying to dump it. But at the same time, the fewer people that would buy it would have much better temps and overclocking capabilities so they might be willing to pay more. But, like everyone else pointed out, it will most likely take a fair bit longer to sell (depending on the price of course).

Honestly, I think it really depends on the buyer you'd find. I would just not do it. The way I see it, there is some risk involved in delidding (but you could probably do it and not mess it up so I wouldn't worry about that), the margin of people willing to buy it night shrink and resell time would increase, and in reality, you aren't really gonna sell it for that much more. Unless you are confident your chip is the pinnacle of the silicone lottery and can hit frequencies stable at some of the lowest voltages, then it may be worth a bit more, but still.

Your part list and words conflict you said you have a "i7-6600k, OC'd to 4.1GHz" but I am guessing you mean i5 6600k as in your part list. But anyway, more intensive games will be more intense on your system. 75% CPU usage on a Skylake i5 in an intensive game with multiple monitors, one of which is 144Hz -- and I am guessing you are also using high settings ingame, that's more than reasonable. If what I said last sentence is true, 75% isn't too unreasonable.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Just bought a Alienware 17 R2"

  • 23 months ago
  • 1 point

I have an Alienware 13 R2 running an i7 6500u, 8GB 1600Mhz LPDDR3, and a 960m. It came with a 500GB 5400rpm HDD, but I switched it for a 500GB 850 EVO (this detail mainly affects battery life (HDD uses more), but also may cause some slight (very slight) variations in certain things like Photoshop and other programs. This doesn't entirely have to do with the SSD, but more likely the absense of Dell bloatware when I reinstalled windows. Idk what your laptop has in it though so, I know it's not the same creature, but it is of the same species, so here are my thoughts:

  • The thing is big and heavy. I have seen laptops from the same time with the same hardware which are much thinner.
  • The display is absolute s**t. It's really plasticy, the viewing angles are terrible, if you have good eye sight you can actually see the led grid on the screen, mines 60Hz and 720p -- it looks horrible, I hate it.
  • The LEDs are cool, but Alienware command center is terrible. Sometimes my LEDs get stuck on or off and going through the command center (even after many force quits) doesn't do anything. They just get stuck. And sometimes resetting it doesn't do anything. It usually takes 2 or 3 to get it to function properly. If you have the LEDs on the back they look pretty cool with the strips and the alienhead (imo)
  • Have I mentioned how much I had the display?
  • The shape is kinda cool, it is definitely an unnecessary aesthetic feature that just makes the laptop irritating to fit into things.
  • The keys feel nice, it's really a preference thing, but I like the feeling of them. They are not actually mechanical, they are membrane, but they are psuedo-mechanical (they kind of mimic mechanical keys, but they aren't). They get close enough to make me like the feel.

Now, onto the stuff you probably actually care about:

  • Yes it can game.
  • If you have ever owned a laptop before, you should already know this, but I'll say it anyway, you should not attempt to game on the trackpad, it just isn't feasible. Tetris, Diep.io, Slither.io, Minesweep, yes. Anything more complex, no.
  • I can run Fortnite on High settings at 60 fps, but the laptop gets too toasty for my liking (at about 60°F ambient, and placed on a hard flat surface). At high after an hour or so it claims to still run at 60fps (GeForce overlay), but I can see the stutter, it's thermal throttling. (CPU going up to 93°C at some points). Lowering it down to medium preset kept it at 80-82°C on the cpu and 75-78°C in the GPU.
  • I have played GMod on it, but I mean, come on, it's GMod.
  • Other than that I don't really use it to game, I use Photoshop CC (more intensely) and Premiere Pro CC (not very intensely). Using you acceleration in Photoshop generally allows it to run nicely, sometimes if I'm bored and I just spin around a 3D asset, or slides something like clone stamp around the screen in a few circled it falls behind and takes a few seconds to process.
  • The thing stays pretty quiet generally. I usually can never hear it, even when working in Photoshop (intensely). But gaming I can hear the fans kick up and they get a fair bit louder (obviously).
  • Battery life is generally rather good. Windows 10 has a performance and battery life slider. (Best Battery > Better Battery > Balanced > Better Performance > Best Performance). I use Better Battery and 25% brightness when I'm not plugged in (I usually use Photoshop out and about so that could help explain some of the processing time). Obviously, when plugged in I use best performance, which is when I would sometimes play games on it. But general at school usage for me (average level Photoshop tasks, Google Docs, Google Slides, watching videos, etc) and my battery makes it through at least 6 hours of consistent usage, with about 30% ish left which I usually end up draining when I go to work. (Another 3 to 4 hours until it's dead). But do note that Bitdefender switches me into battery saver mode at 20% (10% lower brightness, best battery mode, and a couple other things).

I don't know if any of that helps, but that's my personal and subjective experience with a different laptop, so yeah. Again, I will reitterate and also add that, your larger screen with use more battery, but the laptop might also have a larger battery for it's larger size. Idk if you have an SSD, but this improves battery life over the HDD that came with mine. I usually use the laptop with the LEDs *off which will also improve battery life. Anyway, it's almost three am for me, good luck.

I wouldn't commit to any components if you are awaiting the release of an 1170. It hasn't even been officially announced, yet alone being actually available for purchase. All that is out now is rumours, they are expected° to be announced next month, however even if that is the case, they won't be available right away, and when they are it will probably be difficult for anyone to get their hands on one (which will also drive prices up). I would wait until the card is out and available for purchase before you commit to any other hardware.

If you were to go with the 2600x you would need a gpu, so depending on how long it takes to get an 1170 you might not be able to use your system unless you have a gpu.

But I don't really see the point of this post. Is it just 'I just put the biggest storage devices I could find in everywhere I could just to make a part list that I would never need or buy'? The thing you have overlooked is the fact that people who need this kind of storage would look elsewhere. There are larger storage solutions out there that just aren't listed on PCPP. For example, Nimbus Data offers a 100TB SSD in a 3.5" form factor. Even at that, Samsung offers 30 TB drives and those aren't even the largest. This is just large storage using only parts featured on PCPP, but for people who ACTUALLY need this kind of thing, there are more storage options out there.
