I don't run it at a hard 1.75 volts, that's just the upper limit I give it for an adaptive boost. I have seen it hit 1.75 but I wasn't able to get it there right now to screenshot it.

I was actually only running it that high to see where it would max out. My default OC is only a 4.6 boost with a max adaptive voltage of 1.325, where it usually idles at less than 0.2 and rarely posts higher than 1.2.

However, my theory has always been that if I break my shit, I have a reason to go buy better stuff.

KEK.

Yep, 1.3V is reasonable for long run. All above that is meh for 24/7. 

 

Dunno, but i usually sell my old stuff and buy new one, at least to balance out new expenses.

That's example don't be bot. You have free cloning software, just do it. Here is meme. Here it is http://bfy.tw/3ucd

tumblr_nr7zqaDQjg1roohd8o1_400.gif

Yeah I was under the impression I'd need a USB to SATA cable to migrate windows and stuff but now I'm cloning the entire HDD to SDD because it's reasonably fresh and only has like 100gbs of data on it, I'll just move the unnecessary stuff over to the HDD again. All programs that I clone are very much used and will continue to see use there except for FL studio which I can just redl due to being only 500mb.

Sadly I hadn't noticed my WoT files were on the SSD already and now they're overwritten ;-; Luckily I have a backup that's only 2 patches behind on a spare disk that I can use...

 

 

Also some help regarding this:

When I've finished cloning: How do I make sure it boots the SSD as a primary drive to be able to format the HDD? 

I also want to make syslinks for games like tanks and stuff, how2?

With USB you get crappy speed, i always use SATA. (That's why i dont have case, it's hassle for me). 

When you clone HDD all partitions are intact ( if you do so), and with that being done, system is alive too. So booting isn't problem (at all) just set SSD as 1st boot device. You can also delete additional partitions if you have (like D: on HDD).

 

About (software) data, i would left all in place, and after transferring, i'll try to run apps. But if you can all put on SSD, there is no need to go throug pain of all seting in new locations. WOT will work (mine is on SSD, bacuse speed) on different locations, some wont, some will. It's app dependable, and it's real pain to get it right. 

 

On the other hand, user data is simple transferable (one folder, or whole user dir)

 

PS

Last time when i faced low disk space problem, i just upgraded to 240GB SSD. I don't have time and patience to move everything around.

CPU Cooler: BeQuiet Dark Rock 3
Motherboard: Formosa (IPMMB-FM) (HP stock)

Memory: DDR3-1600 16GB  (HP stock)
Solid State Drive: Samsung 850 EVO 250GB 
Hard Drive: 3TB (HP stock)
Case: BeQuiet Silent Base 800
Power Supply: Corsair RM650 Fully Modular

 

Peripherals:

Mouse: Logitech G500s

Headset: Plantronics GameCom 780 7.1 Surround Sound  
Main Monitor: Acer XB240H (144Hz w/ G-Sync)
Second Monitor: Acer S240HL
Speakers: Logitech Z523

 

Upgrade path so far:

So I began with a refurbished HP envy h8 1590ea a few years ago, I upgraded the case, power supply and GPU to make it silent recently as I have began writing my PhD thesis (Physics). 

 

Bonus story:

I must mention the CPU cooler was a nightmare to install as HP's stock backplate is thicker than stock Intel, with nuts wielded on and the socket is glued to the motherboard. So I had to drill the nuts out and use a hair-dryer plus dental floss to get through the glue (all while attached to the motherboard)

So changed some stuff up. System is still pretty much the same, spoilered below. Some new peripherals though:

Logitech G27 Wheel (because F1 2013 and Spintires)

Sennheiser Game One (the G35 was good but old and USB. Since my MB has the best on board audio you can get, I figured I'd better pair it with a good headset)

Blue Yeti Black microphone (going to be making more videos. No more AW, but probably Naval Warfare.)

I also swapped all the of the fans in my system with Corsair AF Quiets RLED, so less noise, more cooling, and MOAR RED.

Connection: 25 down, 5 up. Can stream at 720p 60fps with no lag

Its somewhat of a Frankenstein, still, but it runs as solid as possible. I might get some new fans for the case and get a new air cooler for my CPU, but I don't play anything super intensive. I can play WOT at Max with about 50 FPS, have it set to basically minimum right now and it never drops below 60 FPS except on Karkov in Clan Wars.

So, hopefully the last overhaul. Silly peasant coolers removed, full system custom water cooling is in. It's the first time I've ever touched any of this stuff, but I think it turned out OK. Also swapped the CPU for a K part. Got everything from Koolance, for the sole reaosn that they are the only ones that still make a water block for the 295X2.

I5-6500 (overclocked) running off a Asus z170 board

16 gig Corsair 3000 Ram

780ti GFX card (overclocked)

Samsung M2 Pro 512

2x Crucial 512g SSD drives

Cheap as chips keyboard and mouse because I've found expensive ones make 0 difference

Runs everything on ultra pretty much and I think I get 80-115fps in WOT (can't remember if AA is on)

Any technical reason for the bottom rad to be that way around? Having the inlet/outlet at the other end would give neater tubing.
