Re: Need help in choosing a new computer

I have a about a grand in my build... less than $40 into the cooling system (Cheap ass fans). I run AMD cpu and an R9 Card.... keeps them cool enough. Their really is no reason to splurge on cooling unless you're running crossfire or some other crazy shit.

Not crazy cheap..cyberpower pc's are well known.. better to get 1 of those then say a Dell or HP. For something like that to happen.. chances are slim.. But it happened...from hoses to rad leaks to you name it.. theres alot of factors..Air is simple.. its either on or not..

look.. i dont know about you.. but i bust my ass at work underground for 12-16hrs a day.
when i buy something.. i get want i WANT.. Not what i can afford at the time.. Any pc is an investment.
He will save alot of money doing it himself... if he gets the right parts.. does his homework and makes sure everything is compatible..builds something effective and simple.. then he has a better chance of success.. The more complex you make it.. the more chances something can fail..
Nope, not this guy. I'm financially responsible so I save up for what I want and buy it when I CAN afford it. Also, PC components depreciate faster than cars, so I'm not sure how you figure they're any kind of investment but a bad one.



Brb guys, I bought a Ducati for $500 and it shit out on me. Ducatis must really suck..

he filled it with coolant and for a time it ran great.. He was playing css at around 240 fps and it ran smoothly no matter where he connected to.. ( comcast ftw )

anyway.. a month or so goes by.. out of no where one of his coolant tubes melts
and coolant goes everywhere.. all over the psu and mobo.. he trashed everything..

ALL im saying is that if its his 1st build.. he's better off to go with NON liquid cooled.. Im running a roswell I-7 build with enough fans to keep my r6 cool and its near silent..
4 fans to be exact.. 2 push and 2 pull.. keeps airflow rollin and my pc never gets hot..

I played alot of bf3 and BF4.. no issues what so ever.. airflow is key no matter what route he goes... If it was me.. id go non liquid and stick to decent parts that are PROVEN time and time again to work... otherwise.. your taking chances and money doesnt grow on trees...AMD as mentioned before dont like heat.. nothing does.. but i know ive ran my I-7 for months
with only restarts..No issues what so ever..

So your whole argument against liquid cooled systems is that your brother bought a $500 gaming desktop with liquid cooling and it shit out on him? And you were surprised by this? Fck, I'd be surprised if a $500 AIR-COOLED gaming desktop didn't shit out after a month or two. Liquid cooled units are the business, and are the best of the best, but if you cheap out you will regret it. If you want the best you'll have to pay for it, end of story.

Ye, for low budget... You will always see better temps with fans. Less risk too

Newegg is great...STICK WITH NON WATER COOLED as water cooled are a bigger deal then they let on... i went to my local shop.. told them what i was doing and told them what i wanted... i ended up with a Nvidia 780 vid card ( for gaming ) with an I-7 set up.. yea i paid for it cost wise...but like your bike.. get what you want..not what you can afford at the time.. look for a local pc repair shop..ask questions,, STAY AWAY FROM THE GEEK SQUAD AT BEST BUY AT ALL COSTS...You pay out your a$$ for simple repairs..let a small local pc shop build it for you.. that way if something goes wrong with the OS (operating system ) its on them not you...

stick with Intel parts... i know i know ppl will stick up for AMD..But really... A i-7 runs like Rossi's R1.. where AMD is like the Ninja 500 no one admits to owning..amd isnt terrible by any means.. but go with the proven..

good luck
I have friends that have water-cooled units and love them. Care to elaborate?
