years ago, i used to play a lot of call of duty. i got so used to checking corners, i would enter houses in real life and check behind the door i entered through without even thinking about it.

You know you've been playin' too long when...
I play America's Army: Proving Grounds on PC. One evening while driving I crested a hill and as I started down the other side my headlights began to light up the reflective strips on top of the guard rail posts one after the other. Frist thing that came to mind was "draw distance."

With my Phanteks Evolv Shift 2, my thermals are quite horrible. But that's to be expected with a SFF build and tempered glass on both sides. So until Phanteks actually has some of the mesh panels available, I've been running with the GPU side off (computer sits on my left).

Last night I was fiddling around and thought that a slim 120mm fan could do a lot of good as another 'intake' fan. For reference, the intake fan is at the bottom with the exhaust fans at the back. Very chimney-esque. Although it's a 15mm slim fan, it should be enough to add just enough airflow. However, I will need to modify part of the chassis as I will be mounting it where an SSD up top would go. Should have the fan tomorrow so I shall post my progress!

Nice. Post up the final set up. That 1660 is not bad, it's like PS4 pro level-ish.
Just got to be patient till there is more supply.

Thanks! The 1Q sales are supposed to settle down in April. Also, NVIDIA has downgraded the new cards so their efficacy for Ethereum mining goes down by 50%. That should stop the madness a little bit.

Build is done! Boy was it a pain to get this thing running. My problems started after the first failed boot-up. After re-verifying that my connections were good, turns out I had a bad CPU (Last resort). Great thing I bought two by mistake. After replacing the CPU, I thought my RAMs (DRAM light on mobo) were bad, so I bought another 16GB. After replacing said RAM with new stick(s), same DRAM light on MOBO was on. Re-checked connections, Google, Youtube, read the manual, Ah! Came across a section on the manual about BIOS Flashback button. Turns out that even if my Mobo supports all the components I bought, it is likely that the latest version the mobo was built with was no longer compatible with the components. I also luckily had an old 2GB USB Drive lying around, downloaded the latest drive for the mobo (verify the exact model number), take usb drive, plug usb drive, press flashy BIOS-Flashback, light goes blink blink, light goes out. TA-DA! Computer turns on, no DRAM lights, recognizes the keyboard, mouse. Now I ended up with extra 16GB of RAM which brought me to a total of 32GB, plus a broken CPU which I need to go return.



Lessons learned
-Double check connections. Triple check. Then check again.

-Might not be applicable to all motherboards, but a DRAM light on could mean two things, bad RAM or bad CPU. Most likely the latter, unless you somehow managed to discharge into the RAM during installation process. The controls for the RAM are inside the CPU, so its a 50-50 chance.
-You bought all the latest and greatest components for you brand new PC, your mobo supports said components. Might be a good idea to download the latest BIOS version of you Mobo to an USB Drive and update it before booting-up, trust me, took me HOURS to come to this realization.

-If you can afford it, buy two CPUs, or have a spare one, or even better, don't get them shipped to your house, I think mine maybe got messed up during shipping.


EDIT: Somehow my pics keep uploading sideways, apologize for that.

Congrats on getting the build up and running. It seems there are only two options when building, unbelievably smooth or days of troubleshooting.

Yea, that's why I buy all the critical components locally, even if I have to pay a little more. Fortunately, I have access to both MicroCenter and Frys, plus a number of local shops still open (although they aren't as go-to as they used to be). That way, I know I'm quick drive back if something seems amiss.

I realize not everyone has that option though.
