PC Setup Thread

Do you also play with non-PlayStation devices? Do you enjoy playing as a plumber saving a princess? Or some bald marines? Or maybe you want to play using the touchscreen?

Ilang GB ang RAM mo? Mag disable ka ng mga auto-startup na programs na hindi naman kailangan like Skype, iTunes etc.

advise lang po kung anong setup pwede po sa amin.
kasi po walang air-con.
Hi! Wala ring airconditioner sa amin kasi nasa sala yung PC. Make sure you leave some space for the vents to breathe and have proper airflow inside the case. (usually in-take sa front at palabas yung hot air sa likod at top ng case). Proper cable management also helps. :)
salamat po sir. so lalagyan ko ng agwat ang pader pati CPUpati dapat kahilera o malayo sa cpu yung monitor.

dapat ko bang hindi ilagay yung takip ng cpu case?

Maglagay ka lang ng kaunting space para makahinga yung mga fans ng PC mo. And ilagay mo yung cover ng case, aalikabukin lang ang parts mo pag iniwan mong bukas yan. Worse, pasukin pa ng daga yan.

In case you aren't familiar, napaka-efficient na ng mga PC components ngayon na hindi mo kailangang mag-alala na mag-overheat yan especially for lower end parts. Kahit na sumablay ka sa setup (like nakalimutan mong ilagay yung CPU cooler) mag-tthrottle lang yan para hindi mag self-destruct. Mas mataas pa power consumption ng mga incandescent bulbs kumpara sa mga non-load use na modern entry level PC.

99% of the time, nope. The 1% is if you're using power hungry components like i9 AND if your components are thermally limited (newer ones are mostly voltage limited).

Nasabi na ng iba yung mga useful tips so I guess you're all set. :thumbsup: :) Kung makakabili ka na lang din siguro ng filter, do so para iwas alikabok (or at least minimize) sa loob ng chassis. Pero usually kasama na iyon sa ibang mga decent cases.

Had buy a new PSU for my home PC. Bigla-biglang namamatay na lang kasi. Ipapatingin ko na lang sa kakilala ko kung mare-remedyohan pa yung gamit kong 600W na Silverstone. Ang nakakainis lang din panay naka reserve daw yung mga PSU sa MoA branch ng PCX kaya 400W lang nabili ko. (Merong 800-ish Watts pero lalampas ng P7k na! :facepalm: )

Napansin ko rin marami silang naka display na 1080 at 1070 cards sa releasing section nila. I'm guessing marami pa rin ang nag crypto mining. So I'm guessing medyo inflated pa rin presyo ng mga video cards sa atin? I remember na mga P7k to P8k lang yung 1050 Ti. Ngayon yata mahina na ang P10k. :facepalm: Lol... Haaayzzz... At this rate, baka hindi na rin ako makapag "mid-range" PC gaming man lang. :cry:

Here's the HTPC/data hoarder PC that I built last December.


Parts list
CPU: i3-7100
MOBO: MSI H270M mortar arctic
RAM: Kingston HyperX Fury 16GB
SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 250GB
HDD: WD Red 4TB x 3
HDD: Seagate BarraCuda 1TB
ODD: Pioneer BDR-S09XLB
PSU: Corsair RM750i -> Corsair AX860i
GPU: MSI GT730
CASE: Fractal Design R5
Monitor (side panel): old 17" Dell monitor (4:3)
LED strip: Silverstone LS02 x3

This was supposed to be a budget HTPC build (excluding the 4TB HDDs), but I went over my budget mainly 'cause of the CPU, RAM, ODD and PSU.

Some Comments/Notes on the Parts
CPU: I actually was just looking to use a G4560 since the intended use is HTPC that can handle one or two VMs, but none of the stores, where I'm living, had any of the Pentium CPUs capable of hyper-threading.
RAM: I still can't believe they're so expensive compared to 2-3 years ago.
Motherboard: First of all, it's white/silver, which is what I need to be able to see what's on the monitor. I don't like the audio quality coming from this board. I actually had to use a USB DAC just to check that it wasn't my rip that sounded bad.
HDD: Do NOT use the PS4's stock HDD for VM use.
CASE: Quiet. Has dust filters everywhere (except the back).
Monitor The monitor's screen is an almost exact fit with the window of the R5.
PSU: I wanted a white PSU, but couldn't wait for an order from Amazon to arrive. The RM750i was working at first, and then I tried to use some white cables from CableMod aaaaaaaand so I went back to the store, but that was the last stock.

Anyone with a fairly recent NVIDIA discreet card may want to hold-off installing the latest driver for the time being.

Latest Nvidia Game Ready driver issue: an endless PC reset loop
Nvidia released its latest GeForce Game Ready Driver to the public just a few hours ago, it is version 397.31 WHQL. The driver release came along with the usual release notes, blog post, and encouragement to download and be ‘game ready’ for a couple of new PC titles. In this case it was BattleTech, and Frostpunk. However, since release there has been a steady stream of problems reported on the official Nvidia GeForce support forum. These are quite serious problems, so you might want to pause any GeForce software update plans for now…

Checking through the forum, it seems to be that users packing an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 are affected by the issues. The issue looks pretty serious and bothersome, as affected users will be faced with a restart to reinstall driver screen, and when the reinstall completes they will meet up with this same screen again, and again. Consider that the GTX 1060 is Nvidia’s most popular graphics card, according to the current Steam Hardware Survey data, and these issues could cause a lot of frustration.

The situation is ongoing with Nvidia support on the forums asking users for more specifics about their complaints, especially with regard to graphics card model IDs.

Meanwhile there appears to be a simple working method to roll back to v391.35. Affected users need to download this older driver and the Display Driver Uninstaller software. The next step is to reboot in safe mode and

Hopefully Nvidia will sort out this issue shortly, pause auto-downloading and updating via the GeForce Experience, and release a new Game Ready driver for those wishing to get the best performance in BattleTech and Frostpunk on their GeForce powered PCs.

Another update with a "wait-out basis". This time it's a Windows 10 update. Nabasa ko sa mga coments na meron din daw ibang brand ng SSDs na affected.


Windows 10 April 2018 Update causes bootloops on systems with specific Intel SSDs
When attempting to upgrade to Window 10 April 2018 Update select devices with certain Intel SSDs may enter a UEFI screen reboot or crash repeatedly.

Microsoft is currently blocking some Intel SSDs from installing the April 2018 Update due to a known incompatibility that may cause performance and stability issues. There is no workaround for this issue. If you have encountered this issue, you can roll back to Windows 10, version 1709 and wait for the resolution before attempting to install the April 2018 Update again.

Microsoft is currently working on a solution that will be provided in a near future Windows Update, after which these devices will be able to install the April 2018 Update.

---

Microsoft learned that devices with certain Intel SSDs repeatedly crashed during the installation of the update reports myce; other devices continuously restarted and got into a boot loop after which the systems became unusable. Therefore, the software giant decided to stop distributing the updates to affected systems. Microsoft does not list which exact Intel SSDs suffer from the issues. Currently, there is no patch or workaround available for the issue, it’s expected that after Microsoft has found the root of the problem, it will release an update and make the Windows 10 April 2018 Update available to owners of the affected systems again.

MS mentioned 'certain' Intel SSDs, but does not name them specifically by model. Windows 10 users with an Intel SSD, who already installed the Windows 10 April 2018 Update, are advised to return to an earlier version of their operating system. This can be done by pressing F8 during boot-time. For now, owners of those systems won’t get the update automatically and can’t start the update manually.

EDIT: BTW, Nandito na rin lang. :lol: Post ko na rin ito. Baka ito ang dahilan din kung bakit hanggang pangarap pansamantagal ang pagbaba ng RAM prices this year, pati na rin ng video cards. :( Frustrating indeed.

Intel Ditching Hyper-Threading With New Core i7-9700K Coffee Lake Processor – Spotted In SiSoft Sandra Benchmark
A very interesting SiSoft Sandra entry (via TUM APISAK) confirms something that had long been suspected over the past few weeks – Intel is going to be ditching Hyper-Threading for its i7 parts in the upcoming Coffee Lake processors. This is now going to be a feature limited to the i9 branding, led by the flagship Core i9-9900K whose existence I exclusively revealed almost a month ago.

Intel’s Core i7-9700K spotted in SiSoft Sandra database – will not support Hyper-Threading
There is something very interesting happening with Intel’s branding strategy and I will get into that in a bit, but first let’s take a look at the leak. SiSoft Sandra is one of the more reliable benchmark databases out there since engineers usually use it for testing and almost always forget to uncheck that pesky upload-to-them-interwebs option. This allows us to get a reliable and early sneak peak on engineering samples and such beforehand.

The Core i7-9700K will have 8 cores and 8 threads (this also automatically means that the i5 variant will have 6 cores and threads) which means that Hyper-Threading is not supported on this part. The chipset in question will be the Z390 chipset, which is something we have covered a while back as well. The Core i7-9700K scores a cool 157.24 GOPs in the benchmark but please keep in mind that this is most likely a non-final sample and the performance could improve significantly.

The most important takeaway from this leak is not the score but rather the shift in branding strategy – so let’s talk about that for a bit. Intel is currently executing a strategy that would shift their customer base towards the higher end. Depending on how they price this, they have essentially introduced an additional tier in the mainstream segment to further tap the market.

The Core i5 and i7 will represent the stepping stones towards the full-fledged Core i9-9900K. Also, keep in mind that there are design based reasons for this decision as well. Most applications can usually handle a maximum of 8 threads efficiently, any more than that is diminishing returns anyways. So for most use cases, the Core i7-9700K should perform similarly to its Hyper-Threaded counterpart clock for clock.

For rendering and multi-threading optimized applications, however, the Core i9-9900K will take a clear lead over the i7-9700K at the same clocks. Once again, it is too early to decide whether this is a good decision or not – it will depend entirely on how Intel prices it. If the company plays its cards right, this would be a very powerful tool to expand the market depth and tap more customer bases without sacrificing any significant amount of performance (remember, most applications right now aren’t designed to take advantage of more than 8 threads).

On a side note: We still have not heard anything about an i3 variant, which should be a quad-core part. Yield theory makes it one of the most lucrative parts to sell and I find it hard to believe that Intel would give that up. The most likely scenario is that we will see a staggered launch sometime soon after (unless the company’s yield for 14nm++ has increased to such an extent that they can comfortably sell 6-core parts like they would quad cores).
