Argh, too many benchmarking applications. One company, 3 different apps. Why do they intentionally fragment them all like that?

I always benchmark in either 3dmark 11 vanilla test at "P" preset because that's what the free version allows or unengin valley

No idea how long that link will work for.

edited - had wrong scores for individual tests, not sure where you see a single cumulative score, oh well
3DMark 11 is the older version that gives you that single cumulative "P Score."

You ran the newer updated version.

Here's mine:

No surprise, your i7 crushes my rig in physics but my graphics score is a bit higher...

3DMARK is also free. I think they are trying to move to the Fire Strike test there as the standard DX11 stress test.

One thing I forgot to mention about that rig of mine. Call me crazy, but I hand made (as in bought wire, connectors and terminals, then measured, cut and installed), sleeved and sewed every one of the PSU cables you see in black and blue. Took over the entire dining room table for a week. The GPU cables were fun - didn't really have room to run 4 total connections from the PSU, so I soldered splits in the wires behind the mobo tray and ran those to the GPU power connections.

Wife was somewhat amused...

Welp, my less-than-two-year old PC has started freezing up and crashing constantly. No viruses or anything found by any program I run.

Plenty of HD Space. 16GB of RAM and I don't do much other than light gaming, etc. No heavy film/music editing.

Any thoughts on where to go from here?

Shouldn't you have a Mac?

Freezing and crashing is likely either heat or RAM.. I would run a bootable RAM test and see what it says.

Why?

Heat is an interesting thought. I'll see what my dust situation is like in there. My temp sensors don't show anything abnormal though.

I'd back up your **** and reinstall your OS. Fresh start!

Yeah, I might. I need a bigger SSD anyway - but knowing my luck, even backing everything up, I'd lose all my saved games, photos, music, etc.

Programs are freezing or the OS? Bluescreens? Auto-reboots?

I'd try re-seating the RAM and video card(s) before doing anything else. Also, blowing out all the heat exchangers, if you haven't done so in a while.

Everything freezes. Starts with the mouse lagging a bunch and then it just locks up. Usually in Chrome or Word, nothing super labor-intensive. No problems gaming.

As I said, give it a good cleaning and run memtest to see if the RAM is giving any errors.

Ordered a Coolmaster Elite 361 case since it was well priced, could be placed horizontally, fits atx mobo's, and a gtx 760.




I need to figure out proper fan placement in the case since it will be positioned horizontally in a cabinet. The power supply is positioned to exhaust out the front of the case. With the case laying horizontally I was thinking about having the left side fan (120mm) be an intake to get air to the gpu, the right side a radiator / fan for a liquid cpu cooler (Corsair H50) intake?, and a front fan (80mm) to exhaust. Not sure what to do for the top, and rear fans. Maybe have the top fan serve as an exhaust and rears intakes? I won't be using a disc drive in this case.

Case dimensions (horizontal H x W x D):
5.9" x 14.4" x 18.2"

Cabinet shelf dimensions (middle shelf):
12" x 28" x 21.5"


Thoughts or recommendations on fan placement

Also check your HDD usage from task manager. I had a laptop that would lag on everything for no reason. Turns out it was the HDD on its way out and it was writting to disk at max frequency all the time.

Thoughts on monitors? Don't see the point in buying a 22"-24" monitor in the $200 range when I can buy a 32" Samsung SmartTV for ~$260. Yeah, only 720p but is that a big deal...?

Yeah...but $320 for 1080p Samsung 32" Smart TV and $250 for 720p not Smart TV.

Well...$70 isn't much... I recall that 1920x1080 was the resolution at which my 8800GTX reached its limitations on ultrasuperawesome graphics settings; it was the recommend resolution to begin SLI. Is that still the case with the current gen of cards? 760 isn't that expensive, but I don't feel like dumping ~$500 into two cards right now.

32" 720p as a monitor?

Nope.

Look, this is the PC Master race thread, not the plebeian gaming thread.

A 22" 1080p Samsung DumbTV is only ~$170...32" is kinda big for a desk anyway methinks.

I would definitely not get a 720p anything when you are sitting 2ft away from it. Why not get and Acer 27in 1080p monitor for 199 and call it good. Its a great monitor.

EDIT appears that model is sold out at The moment
