  1. Yep got it same day prime shipping monday and after couple headaches with true image not wanting to clone from hdd to ssd because of the size 1tb to 512gb even tho i ony had 170gbs on it and a couple of windows 10 headaches with the 1903 build.. I finally got it to take a image from April 8th i had backup. And yep system is back to its snappyness and fast boot ups lol Swear tho this k7 motherboard must not like hard drives as a boot drive cause it took 3 too 7minutes to get loaded to the desktop and while doing it after the login screen it stayed on a black screen loading lol.. No issues like that with the ssd. gets reads and writes in the 500s as it should:)
  2. Just bought this for now https://www.amazon.com/Silicon-Power-Performance-Internal-SP512GBSS3A55S25/dp/B07997QV4Z/ref=sr_1_6?crid=3SVUV84OKPTYG&keywords=500gb+ssd&qid=1555106442&s=gateway&sprefix=500gb%2Caps%2C136&sr=8-6 Figure i just get this instead of the nvme and wait for black Friday or Christmas sales to get a 1tb. Should be a improvement even from my old ocz drive when i was using it lol..
  3. Is this one good? https://www.amazon.com/Crucial-1TB-NAND-NVMe-PCIe/dp/B07J2Q4SWZ/ref=sr_1_9?crid=1RVJMGK5NFX3L&keywords=m.2+ssd+1tb&qid=1554746017&s=gateway&sprefix=m.2+ssd+%2Caps%2C122&sr=8-9 Figure i just go all in and get a 1tb and just slot that right on my board lol..
  4. Yea i agree ssds should be used always now:) Which why i always had a ssd in my system from 2011 and up as my boot drive in every system i used lol. But sadly the pass couple years been rough so money at the moment is yeaa... But this ocz 120gb pretty much been in 3 systems think i got it in 2012 never had a problem with it till a month ago. Think what got too it is it was always 95% full and it has tons of writes on it.. Im still using it as a small game drive which so far seems fine. I was going to clone back to it and see how it does but the other problem is the small size of it.. just way too small for me:/ Which why i went back to spin drive for now to get it back up and running but geeze i dont think it suppose to be this slow starting up.. Mainly the black screen after you put your password in.. It will just sit at the black screen for like 2 minutes than it loads the desktop than after that takes it good old time loading other stuff.. so i say about 5 too 6 minutes total time for it to smooth out... I just cloned to another drive lastnight a 1tb 7200rpms wd black and yep still the same slowness... Ony thing i can think of is maybe this gigabyte k7 just don't like having a spin drive as a os drive? But yea probably will have to deal with this till i can afford to get a ssd hopefully in a month or 2:/ Figured how to do the test:) http://www.pcpitstop.com/betapit/sec.asp?conid=26055352&report=Summary Doesn't show my 1080ti but that's normal cause its not my main gpu. system has 3 gpus lol.. 960gtx 1080ti and a 3rd one amd 3450 for another monitor.. lol wait it does show all of them in installed hardware:)
  5. So my ocz 120gb ssd was having troubles a bad sector and it was freezing every once awhile.. So i clone it to a wd 7200rpms 320gb laptop drive and no issues now and been using that for couple months now. Tho it has super super slow load times when windows starting up like soon as it gets too the log in screen after that the screens would be black for like a minute or 2 than it goes away and i still have too wait till it gets smooth out so i say about 5minutes till everything is loaded which i know is not normal.. I would go back to the ssd but i really don't trust it as a boot drive im just using it for a few games after i format it and its been fine ever sense. Plus its just way too small for me to use as a boot drive.. I had a ssd ever sense 2011 in my systems and this windows 10 install is old which was a upgrade from 8.1 back in 2015 and i been using it ever sense its been in 2 systems. So im not sure if going back to a hard drive i need to do anything sense it was configured on a ssd? Even tho everything looks good the drive tests fine and has decent speed.. System specs is a ryzen 1700 3.8ghz gigabyte k7 16gb 3200 960gtx-1080ti. And my other hdds is a raid 0 2x wd 1tb blacks for a game drive samsung 2tb as backup and the 120gb ssd for small games. Everything runs smooth when its up and running which this system is always on 24.7 till i need to update something which start up times is a pain in the rear lol And hello been awhile sense i been here:)
  6. Been awhile sense i posted on pcpitstop.. But figure i do it today:) when i upgraded from 4gb too 8gb couple months ago the whole windows desktop and every program i used and games which is my main task benefit from it. Everything just runs even smoother now. And some games out there or most they really benefit from more memory because when i look at my task manger memory usage it shows im way over 4gbs of ram when running the games im playing. With 4gb it was spiking too 4gb but went down but problee because it toss it too page file and that was giving me bad performance. I usely use like 2.5gbs and can almost be up too 4gbs just being on the windows desktop with Firefox tabs up and my usely daily programs running. But ya for me it made a nice difference from 4 too 8gb. But im sure 4 too 6gb will be too, But if the memory was cheep which it was for me i would go all out and get 8gb:) Oh and if you have 32bit windows than its not worth it sense it wont see or use that extra memory, I would advise too upgrade too 64bit if you can too get the full benefits of the memory.
  7. Ya thats true:) Just wanted too make sure it was not dieing. Thanks:)
  8. Nope not a i7 its a Amd phenom 965 c3 @4.2ghzs Well runing it at 4ghzs with 1.47v right now. Ya thats what i figured if i ony see like 1 too 2c if even that over what i have now its not really worth taking the loop apart and problee have too buy new hoses and new coolent... When i redo the loop again i try it the other way just too see what it does. Oh is the pump suppose too make a buzzing noise like a fish pump? Its not as loud at all sense you cant hear it over my fans but its like a faint buzzing.
  9. Been a long time sense i last posted on this forum.. This is my first custom water loop Well i did have a h50 so i had water before but not a custom loop. How does it look? And so far im happy and not happy..Temps are ok but i thought it would be better. Temps are 33 too 34idle and 45 too 46c at load with 4ghzs and 1.47v load which seems decent, And what i was aiming for is 4.2ghzs with 1.55v but temps are around 48c too 50c, and up too 52c when the heat kicks on in the house... Does that seem right with this kit? Also as you can see by the pics im running it like this res/pump too cpu than too rad than back too the res/pump combo, Also i seen setups like this res/pump too rad than too cpu than back too the res/pump. Will i see lower temps like that or about the same as i have it now? Or how i have it setup is good the way it is?

  10. oh i also chatted with newegg again and try my luck again and still a no go but i told them i still haven't herd back from HIS for a simple question sense i told newegg i really don't have any problems with the card just the 2d down clocking problem and they seemed too know about it when i told them and told them anyway they could try too contact them and they said try again and if you don't hear back from them again contact newegg and they see what they can do about it. i be happy if HIS would at least get back too me so i know i wont have any problems in the future with the for rma's if i have any problems.. edit update HIS Finally got back too me so at least they still over there... lol
  11. update i found the problem that was causing the voltage too go too 1.65 i was looking at overclock.net ati forums and saw some other person was having the same issue and at the end it was everest causeing both of us the problem.. for some reason when that's running it will make the card run at 1.65v so i kept that off and just used cpuid hardware monitor and gpuz and its been fine for the pass week:) and update on the overclocking the card is now overclocked at 970 core and 1300 memory!! i always thought it was just a bad overclocker but for some reason the memory just doesn't like too be software overclocked in windows.. but really no problem i just flash the memory clocks too 1300 and its fine it im also running it always full speed instead in 2d with msi after burner and the card haven't gave me any problems for about week and half. so it seems too not like the downlclocking much but card stays cold anyways even at full 3d clocks so i don't really care about the low 2d power saving stuff. one problem tho is HIS support pretty much sucks really bad.... i did a ticket just too ask if they have a bios update or a fix for the 2d clocking and this was last friday the 26th of march and they still haven't got back too me and i even emailed them a few more times still nothing.. so i contacted newegg about switching cards for another maker sense if this card dies just for some reason i cant even do a rma with his.. i even was gonna get the 2gb version which is 500$ but newegg at first said there will be a restocking fee of 57$ so i told them im not going for that so the first lady in chat just terminate the chat and put someone else on so it pretty much happen again after i told them i would like too get another company card she said about the restocking fee and all i said is i have too talk too the other people in the house about that and can i get back too you and bang another terminate and a guy now comes on... and said he reviewed my case and manger and him agreed too let the restocking fee go if i buy the card i wanted first which was 500$ and than send the other card back and when they get it they will give store credit so i said ok i was happy with that but i didn't think right sense i thought store credit was towards the card im gonna replace it with... so i emailed the guy after that after he aready set up a rma and told him why cant i just buy the new card for 500$ and send the old card back and they refund the money too the card i payed with. and i told him if teh store credit is just for newegg and doesn't go back in my bank that i cant do that because my bank was getting low already and i cant afford too be spending that much. and said if so im just gonna keep the card if its that way. so he got back and told me if you want too keep the card than just leave the rma expire because they cant do it any other way and the store credit is just for newegg 380$ what i paid for the card.... so i guess that's it im stuck with the card even if it breaks even tho its working really nice now but you never know... but it seems like they do make good products sense my his 4890 is still going with no problems so hopefully this one will do the same at least for a year or less till the ati 6000s comes out lol...
  12. i think i stay with my cold running 5870:) that's the last thing i need is a 90+ device in my system lol tho im sure it will be a beast under water:) still would love to water my 5870:) oh and ati eyefinity with 1 single card is what closed the deal for me on ati:) with the 480 from what that says on the net it needs 2 cards.... so that's 1000$ right there plus you need too buy 3 monitors if you don't have them lol that's if you like that idea which im planing on doing 3 monitors with my 5870 later on just gonna need too buy 2 more of my hanns 28ins.... lol
  13. tho quad does help a bit even the ones that don't use all 4 cores sense when i use too use my opteron 165 duel core oc at 3ghzs with my 4890 as my main gaming rig i got good fps but when i went too my sig system when i also had my older quad 940 in it and when i had my 4890 in it there was a big boost even in the ones that didn't use all 4 cores. but than again for some reason the ati 4800 series 4850 4870 and 4890 was bottlenecked by the opteron [email protected] sense i had a 4850 first than went too the 4870 didn't see much difference in fps went too the 4890 helped a liitle sense it did have 1gb of video ram but wasn't doing as it supposed too. but i think the cache has alot too do with gaming sense my asus g50vt x5 laptop with a core 2 duo @ stock 2.1ghzs with a 9800gs overclocked too gts speeds beated the opteron in most games even with the 4890 in it lol cause the opteron has 2mb cache and the p7450 core 2 duo has 3mb now i have it overclocked in my laptop too 2.6 and sometimes 2.8:) the operon 165 is stil a good cpu never had problems with it and still going strong even too this day. even going from my quad 940 overclocked at 3.8ghzs too the [email protected] it gave a nice increase which i didn't think it would and when the 965 was at stock it was faster than my overclocked 3.8ghzs.. but ya having more cores and also cache does give stuff more headroom even if the game doesn't used all the cores sense it gives stuff like windows and programs in the background too breath more and alot of newer games pretty much benefits from quad sense it uses all the cores when i play them and tons of them uses duel cores pretty much why my cousin had too upgrade from his single core with the 9600gt lol he went too the amd 945 quad and kept his 9600gt and boosted his fps in all games he plays by 20fps and in some case 30+. but six cores right now would be little overkill too me but at 300$ that's pretty cheep but i would like too see one with more cache. but ya you right about its not fully using the cpus sense they don't even get maxed out sense the max i see my quad % go up ony by 45 too 65 but battlefield company 2 really puts a good load on all 4 cores than any game i seen even more than gta iv or about the same and another one that does is just cause 2.
  14. all i could think of sense it still ony have 6mb cache is hard core muti tasking even tho i do that with my 965 lol but in gaming don't think it would better sense ony has 6mb cache and no games uses 6cores... but if it was like 8 or 12 cache than it would've been really nice for gaming sense you still have 2 more cores un touched
  15. how will it do in gaming? like will it be better than my amd 965? which i also have it clocked too 4ghzs and sometimes 4.1. or will it pretty much be good just for multitasking and gaming but i like too see a improvement over my 965 if im gonna spend 300$ lol thing i don't get why do they still ony have 6mb cache...
