Nice I got a old atari 2600 but unfortunatly no way to hock it up
What do you mean? Software, peripherals?
I got a old Packard Bell Pentium 3 PC once, the dust was dark orange borderline brown, I striped it right down and literally bathed it in my shower, motherboard and all.
I have a light sixer Atari 2600 with box. Unfortunately, the box has no internal packing and the console doesn't work properly.
Beep: My 2600 stuff.
Finally unbuggered my CPU cooler. I hate the intel push-pin coolers, one of the pins popped out just enough to let a core fly past 70 degrees on boot.
Otherwise, to anyone thinking mItx, get the Node 202. It's excellent, I have no major issues with the case and it's nearly the exact same dimensions (and in appearance) as the original PS3.
Asked my dad. The room that is now my room was full of PCs before that. He told me that those were systems with 80-series CPUs. One one them even a dual-CPU system.
We still have three old Ataris under my grandpa's roof. One of them is a 1400, if I've understood that correctly. And if you ask where the PCs went so I could go there: They're niw all in computer heaven, where they have electricity and software all along and everything's happy.
>that moment when your laptop actually has a faster cpu than your desktop but it cant replace it
This is clearly the way to go.
i may just have to do that soon. i have a really nice laptop, but the screen stopped working(its not the lcd, already checked that). now to find a good case for it.
Probably not a bad idea, it would take a lot of drilling and hacking to make it fit but I imagine the thermals would be pretty amazing. Then you can cable tie a 212 evo to the CPU
So I'm partially doing the unthinkable and buying a prebuilt barebones PC.
Sounds shocking but there are a few compelling reasons:
- I need mostly new parts if I want to upgrade my CPU (CPU needs newer mobo, newer mobo needs DDR4 memory, newer mobos in my form factor are rare so I want a bigger case, etc...)
- It's actually £40 cheaper than ordering the exact same parts myself (and the more expensive option has a non-K CPU whereas the prebuild does)
- As much as I like messing with hardware, saving time on wiring and CPU coolers is always nice.
- All I need to fiddle with is transferring my GPU and existing drives to the GPU-less, drive-less prebuilt.
- It's warrantied so I'm not responsible for every individual part, I can easily complain with "halp it broken" if it's DOA.
So, TL;DR: I could build a PC myself for a certain price or have it taken care of with a slightly better CPU for £40 less. No-brainer, right?
And since we all love to show off, once it's all done the specs will be:
CPU: i7 6700k 4GHz
CPU Cooler: Arctic Freezer 7 Pro
GPU: ZOTAC GTX 980Ti AMP
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z170XP-SLI
Memory: 16GB Corsair Vengeance (DDR4, 3000MHz)
PSU: Corsair RM750X
Case: Corsair Carbide 200R
Storage will be 3TB total, consisting of a 2TB mechanical, 500GB mechanical, a 250GB SSD and a 256GB M.2.
HEY GUYS, i found linus from LinusTechTips
cable tie another to the gpu if present too
No, Linus would use a T4 and call it a 212 Evo
i did that to an 8400gs. i dont think i did it right though, as temps got higher
While on the topic of laptops mine wont boot. Which means it is currently wrapped in a blanket trying to get enough heat up to get the solder to expand to allow it to make connection and boot. This is one of the most common "fixes" for this issue. Thank god I got it off ebay for £30, I'd feel bad for anyone who bought one new. I've already tried 3 different bios versions, reseating....pretty much everything, new paste on gpu and cpu, removing the CMOS battery, hard resetting, running on ext displays and not a thing fixed it. This is somewhat my last resort before it goes up on ebay as a parts turd.
Seems to be all across the range too, pretty much from the lowest models to highest and on both intel and amd systems. You probably want to avoid these laptops if you can.
Video I found with the exact same issue as me
Edit: It works! I'll just leave it on 24/7 now and see how long it lives
The towel method is dumb. Pull the board out and stick it in the oven for ~8 minutes at 385f. (A toaster oven will work too. Ask how I know.)
Yeah I know it is, I've just been lazy and its the easiest way to get around it for now. I'll throw it in next time I feel like taking it apart. Which will probably be the next few days when it won't turn on...
If it's just the GPU or something you could use a butane torch lighter thing. I've used one to reflow a laptop GPU, it's better than reflowing the entire motherboard.
Quoting Linus himself from a random video: "For the cooling, I got a 204 Evo here. It's not a 212 Evo, because... Yeehhh... I don't know yet..."
That was the moment when I started to laugh at him. I think he's a nice source for some things, but you should always listen to a second person too. E.g., in his video about the GT730 he compared it to the internal GPU of a Skylake... I don't think he knows what an Athlon is.
