#2132956 Build for daughter! (gamer girl)

Posted by TimeMachine on 26 November 2014 - 10:07 AM in System Builds

Oh one more question. Will computer need its own modem/hard line to get online, or can it run off wireless like my laptop/phones etc?


Depending on motherboard... Some higher end mobos come with Wifi, but if not you can purchase a pci card or a usb one.

#2132866 Upgrade Feasible or Processor Bottle Neck?

You can also use Gpu Shark to get the info.  And the DH-14 is the best air cooler you can get!

Download the appropriate version of MSI afterburner and check the fan.  My EVGA 460 was a loud guy.

#2132720 Build for daughter! (gamer girl)

Posted by TimeMachine on 19 November 2014 - 04:33 PM in System Builds

I recently built a APU system for my gf.



A8 - 7600 

2133 MHZ ram... You would want the fastest ram you can afford since the on board gpu is using your ram. ( i bought lower speed rams and made a huge mistake!)

#2132417 Personal Business Cloud or Server?

Posted by TimeMachine on 12 November 2014 - 05:30 PM in Drives and Storage

I would use the cloud... Having to build a server and maintain with people in diff locations is not going to be fun..


Put it this way, rather have a cloud where they have to worry about backup of herr data and maintaining the hard drives instead of your friend or you?. It is worth the money spent. Since you might know about it than she, you could do the research on which company is good for her.. 



I'm going to vote for a cloud solution as well. The time it takes to manage a server, along with completing proper backups, just isn't worth the effort when compared to the cost of cloud storage. Besides the time spent, you also have to factor in initial cost, electricity use, and hardware replacement. When it's all said and done, I'm guessing that cloud storage would not only be easier, but would also be cheaper, especially with online storage costs coming down due to mass competition.



Thanks boys! Will do some research.  Any recommendations on clouds?

#2132400 Personal Business Cloud or Server?

Posted by TimeMachine on 12 November 2014 - 10:01 AM in Drives and Storage

My friend is starting her business in design. Lots of files and images are to be transferred and shared at any given time.  The problem is she has a few workers and they are working in different locations; which means that the server/ drives need to be accessed from anywhere. 


Is it wise to build a server or just use the cloud? Thanks!

#2132245 AMD A8 7600 Enable 2 GB of Ram

Posted by TimeMachine on 10 November 2014 - 08:29 AM in Processors, Motherboards and Memory

Hey BP.  Thanks for leading me into the right direction.  If anyone is ever curious.. you need to first enable dual graphics mode. Then the dedicated IGPU memory will show up.

#2132085 I am up for a HUGE promotion at work.

Posted by TimeMachine on 07 November 2014 - 09:36 AM in OCC Member's Lounge

Lots of good wise feed back in this thread. If I had a chance to go back I would of probably went a different route in career paths. Everyone has their own goals in life and what might be good for one person might not be for the other. Do whatever satisfies you.   That being said it is very competitive in my area (Los Angeles) as you have college grads working at McDonald and trying to pay off loans. But in retrospective a degree is a stepping stone to a more comfortable future. 


Most hirees  already know if they want to hire you in the first minutes. If they didn't give you the position the next thing would be to get another job and start high from there.



#2132059 AMD A8 7600 Enable 2 GB of Ram

Posted by TimeMachine on 06 November 2014 - 09:51 PM in Processors, Motherboards and Memory

Hey Guys and Gals,


Trying to enable 2 gb of rame for dedicated memory rather than just 1 gb. I have searched high and low and haven't found a concrete answer.


Does AMD enable it automatically? I have the MSI X88 E45 Mobo and 8b of ram.


Thanks for reading!

#2131837 AMD processor lineup

Posted by TimeMachine on 03 November 2014 - 05:03 PM in Processors, Motherboards and Memory


Okies, the 6400K is 2 Core 3.9GHz (4.1GHz turbo) with a HD870D GPU

AMD calls it a dual core


Why do you believe you are "bottlenecked"?






Unless you are running really low ram (which make sense because APU are ram hungry and perform in conjuction with ram since there's no physical ram like a regular card would have)

"E's have 2 while the A's are at 4 cores."



#2131814 Hi there!

Posted by TimeMachine on 03 November 2014 - 01:43 PM in OCC n00bs

Welcome. Are you a architect/ engineer? I find the i7 4770k to be plentiful paired with 32GB of ram.  I run Autocad 2013 and It barely touches the other cores. 


PS. the Noctua is a great cooler! Running one in this rig.

#2131661 AMD APU For the Lady

Thanks for all the recommendations! I remeber I wanted to build a Bitfenix Prodigy. The clearnace issue is solved with this case.



#2131629 AMD APU For the Lady

Posted by TimeMachine on 30 October 2014 - 04:01 PM in System Builds

Hey OCC members.


I am looking to build a APU rig for my Gf.  Specs are attached 





Mostly for Microsoft office and movie (4k ready) when she decides the rig is too slow.



I am reading a lot about the Micro atx and  ATX not being to handle the coolermaster 212.

So I guess I am asking you guys whats a good case (around $50) that easy to work with, reliable, and can fit the 212.


Thank you!

#2127619 Need Dual Monitors. Buy Same Mon or Upgraded

Posted by TimeMachine on 02 September 2014 - 07:07 AM in Video Cards and Monitors

The one you have now seems to be a pretty decent monitor. 


For the dual monitor setup what are the main purposes going to be?


If photo/video editing i might look at something with a IPS/SIPS panel rather then a TN one.


If everyday stuff, gaming and browsing i would be tempted to just get the same one.


Unfortunately i have been out of the market for monitors for a while and cant give any recommendations on the IPS but usually samsung, dell and lg are the ones i would be looking at for those.





I am quite happy with my current monitor.


I am a architect and I have a dual setup at work and it gets the job done.


IPS monitors are on my list.  I am hung up on whether to pick up the exact monitor or just buy a better one and use the old one as a secondary. Thanks!
