Hey MrSpazomo! Thanks for the reply and things to check! I did try to provide as much information as possible at the time :) I'll answer as many as I can now, and will come back to you on the cabling.


  1. I would want to believe that I did, but I can't be certain. I'll come back to you on this one. Where would it be, out of curiosity, or would it be obvious?

  2. I ordered this ARCTIC MX-2 Paste and used it, perhaps I should try cleaning and re-applying it (if I can find it again...)

  3. Is there any recommended Cooler I should look into for this Chip?

  4. I have Bitdefender Total Security installed, but I don't have Malwarebytes. I'll install it and see what it finds.

  5. I'm almost certain I made sure they were all secured & tight, but I'll check again as you can never be too sure.

  6. I did tighten it quite a bit, perhaps this is my issue. When I re-apply the paste I'll try leaving a bit looser.

    Thanks for taking the time to help me out!

Wow I'd really appreciate that! Here's the amazon link for the desktop. I'm glad you found the video useful. Please let me know what you find out. Thanks.

Okay, look at my setup here:



The first photo is a picture of a DVI to Displayport adapter see this link for product specifications from amazon and if you want to buy:


the second photo is a picture of a cable that doesnt have an adapter, as its built in the cable itself. A Male-To-Male DVI to HDMI cable. Makes things easier not having to deal with adapters:


Just remember that there are limitations everytime you change the "default" output / inputs of your monitors if you don't use the ones intended for. For example, the DVI to displayport only allows resolution up to 1980x1080 (the one I purchased at least) I am sure there are other ones which better resolutions but the price you pay also will go up.


If you dont care about resolutions, etc then pick either one ;)


Good luck

I played Wow a lot back in the day, and I can state something that was accurate then. Nvidia cards suck with Wow. I had a card twice as good as the recommend, and I couldn't top 30 fps on min settings.

This was one of the reasons I switched to Radeon cards, and have never gone back. I'm not sure if these issues were solved, but by the looks of your question they aren't.

By comparison, when I went back to Wow for a few months last year (my brother suckered me back in for a bit), my current card a Radeon HD 7770 Ghz edition made by Diamond was netting me well over 100 fps in cities and 140 in the world, on high settings.

I locked the framerate at 60 (to avoid screen tearing), and pumped everything up to max and never saw a drop off at all.

This is the card I have by the way:

Looking at the manual, I see there's a USB type 3 header at the bottom right corner of the motherboard, but I don't see one for the 3.1 gen 2 header the case wants.
There are adapters you can get that should allow it to work, but you won't get the maximum possible speed out of it. Here's one from Amazon:

Edit: the cable from the front panel looks like this, right?

Add an SSD (solid state drive) to your build. This will immensely speed up the computer, I learned this when I built my computer. Asked the same question you’re asking haha. This is a good one!.

Xbox 360 wireless controllers don't work that way. The USB port on them are strictly for charging, and not for linking to a console/PC. (Yeah, pretty dumb.) To get a X360 controller to work on PC you need either a real wired controller, or buy the wireless dongle for your PC.

The Xbox One Wireless controllers DO work on PC, by simply plugging a USB cable in.

Oh, does the monitor have a cable that you can't remove? You can just buy a little adapter then. Something like this.

u/c_smo · 1 pointr/pchelp

Your local hardware store will have them (or Home Depot/Lowes). Bring one of yours with you, so that you can match the threads and size.

If not, then Amazon has everything :)

That looks like just the Empty bays not the HDD cage for the removable drive bay,

Here's an example:

I believe the Dreamcast uses composite. You can get this capture card and a composite splitter in order to send one video feed to your computer and then one to the TV.

Elgato Video Capture - Digitize Video for Mac, PC or iPad (USB 2.0)
