I want to make more speed for 3D Tool - mainboard

Q: I want to make more speed for 3D Tool - mainboard

Hello ?
Recently, I need more speed for my computer.
Basically I want upgrade hardware but I am not expert: I need some advice.
I am using my computer for Computer Animation: Mostly Autodesk Maya.

I am in the middle of learning Animation Part and realize if I am going to use MentalRay with Animation,
I have to wait a long time [I believe].

Currently my computer's spec:
i5 2500K.
8GB of RAM
GTX 560TI of 1GB

Which hardware should upgrade ?

Preferred Solution: I want to make more speed for 3D Tool - mainboard

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am using computers for the last 20 years and know some basics about the hardware & PC operations, I am planning for a new higher end P4 PC with All in wonder graphics card & LIVE wire sound with speakers and all,
I need to clarify
1. should the processor & mother board speed be same?,
2. If I choose a RAM with (speed ?) of 333MHZ and use a mother board with 800MHZ, Is it a mismatch or underrating the board capabilities?.
4. To simplify my question what are the difference in using a
a.) 533MHZ processor / 533MHZ board with 400MHZ RAM
b.) 800MHZ processor / 533 MHZ board with 333 MHZ RAM.
c.) 800MHZ processor / 800 MHZ board with 400MHZ RAM


A:CPU, Mainboard & Memory speed

1) I'm not really sure what you mean by motherboard speed, its more about what processor your board will support. As long as your board supports the processor your looking at your good to go. I suppose its possible that a board won't be able to support certain special features of the processor if there are any, so its best to read the specs of the processor and board to make sure their compatible.

2) Again its really a matter of the board supporting a certain speed of memory. Usually boards will have a few configurations of memory they support, just make sure the memory you want is supported by the board.

4) b, I think means the board will not support the processor, a and c should both work fine but c will have faster througput performance.

If you find the exact brand and make of motherboard and processor your intrested in you can usually get a nice manual from the manufacturer's website. Just make sure everything is compatible before you buy it and you will be ok.

Hi guys! Running out of time this morning, have to be brief.

I am starting out as a digital photographer, and want to show some prospective clients the weddings I have shot on DVD. I am looking for an INEXPENSIVE program to create DVDs.

A menu at the beginning, allowing me or them to select which group of pictures (or slideshow) to view is a must, which is why I'm not able to simply use WMM. I would like a program giving me a lot of creative control. As a photographer, it's all about the image. Any ideas are appreciated!

(P.S, by inexpensive, I mean like less than or around 30dollars if I dreaming?)

Just upgraded to Win 10 from Win 7. I am trying to like it . One of the annoyances I've found so far
is the snipping tool. When on Win 7, when I did my shortcut keys to open it, it would automatically go
into snipping mode so I could just move my mouse to create my snip. Now, it makes you select new and
what type you'd like. I have looked around the settings to make it act like it did when in Win7 but so far
no luck. Does anyone know how to make it just start like it did when using it before I upgraded?
I only have interest in creating a snip this way. Thanks

A:How to make snipping tool default to new snip

Yes, having to make that one extra click is surprisingly irritating. I was very happy using the tool when it was 'ready to snip' with the last used setting. If I occasionally wanted to capture a menu, I could with just a few more clicks. Having to press 'new snip' each and every time seems pointless, slow and cumbersome.

Hello, I'm seeking overall advice to get things done faster.

Last year I did my own Win 7 build and was very satisfied (after Christmas time I added 2 more of the same G.Skill 2GB for a total of 8). Today not so much. I'm not sure if the problem is with Windows, my build, my ISP, my network, or Chrome browser.

Simple example of problem is the letters are not appearing as fast as I type here (I'm not a fast typer - 30-60wpm).

Any advice to identify the problem would be greatly appreciated.

A:How to make speed improvements

Is the slowness you're seeing only when using a web browser? How do other applications respond on the system?

The best way to determine where the slowdown is coming from is start with the basics like how does the system perform with no applications running (simply accessing files), does it boot up like it used to, any new applications installed recently?

You could also use task manager and performance monitor to check system performance after a clean reboot and then after opening applications.

A:how to make the g500 fans max speed

Hi TheRealTo , 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
If you already have the latest BIOS from the support site , at the moment there are no options offered in the BIOS to change fan control as it is already pre-programmed thru its firmware to automatically launch on demand. 
If you currently encountering heating issue , best that you check further for any obtructions from the vents and call in tech support for checking further on the heatsink and fan assembly if needed repair specially if the pc is within warranty.
If you have the tools and skills for cleaning the internally , follow the hardware manual  guide .
Alternatively , external laptop cooler can also be an option.
Hope this helps.

In order to try to keep my system clean and efficient I regularly do a disc clean-up, and defrag. Fragmented files are minimal, contiguous files (largest) Unmovable files, and Free Space (33%) Is there a way to compress the contiguous files or perhaps some other way to make more free space and hopefully speed up the system? I am connected to Rogers "High-Speed" but right now it's kind of a misnommer. It moves like I do only I'm old. I have deleted programs that I don't or rarely use, I do have some hotfixes etc. that I don't understand so I don't mess with them. Thanks for your help.

I put together a machine with an ASUS A7N8X-X MOBO and Athlon XP 2600 Barton (1900 GHZ and 333 FSB). With the auto settings in the Advanced Chipset Features, Everest reported it as 1.1 GHZ or something like that. So I changed the CPU External Frequency from 100 to 166 as the Frequency Multiplier had been set at 11.5. I assume that's correct because the manual says the FSB should be twice the CPU External Frequency, so twice 166 is 334 (close to 333 listed). This then gave me 1.921 GHz and a 334 Mhz effective FSB. See the snapshots of Everest readings:

I have tried 3 different movie file converters to convert MOV to MWV files. However, all of the converters made all movies from regular speed to super speed video-wise. The audio remains the same speed. Why was it changing the speed of the video?


A:All Converters Make regular speed MOV to MWV files twice as fast

Are these MOV files from different sources or from one source. If all from the same source it sounds like they have some sort of encoding in them that is by accident or by design, fooling the converters.

Well, if you can currently get full speed connections using the existing ADSL modem/router, there isn't much you're going to do by changing routers.

I tried to post this in the correct forum but for some reason I am blocked from using the community part of the forums. Can you tell me why? Also I have been reading some good reviews on this speed fix tool but wanted some input on it before trying it.

Sorry if I posted in the wrong forum but if you could explain why I can't use the other ones then maybe I can do better at posting in the correct forum. Thanks for your time

A:"Speed Fix Tool", Anyone know if this a legit program

The short answer is NO.
Two reasons:

1. WOT rating (marked in red):
Registry cleaners/optimizers are not recommended for several reasons:
Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.

The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry.

Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for a program to work.

Not all registry cleaners create a backup of the registry before making changes. If the changes prevent the system from booting up, then there is no backup available to restore it in order to regain functionality. A backup of the registry is essential BEFORE making any changes to the registry.

Improperly removing registry entries can hamper malware disinfection and make the removal process more difficult if your computer becomes infected. For example, removing malware related registry entries before the infection is properly identified can contribute to system instability and even make the malware undetectable to removal tools.

The usefulness of cleaning the registry is highly overrated and can be dangerous. In most cases, using a cleaner to remove obsolete, invalid, and erroneous entries does not affect system performance but it can result in "unpredictable results".
Unless you have a particular problem that requires a registry edit to correct it, I would suggest you leave the registry alone. Using registry cleaning tools unnecessarily or incorrectly could lead to disastrous effects on your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. For routine use, the benefits to your computer are negligible while the potential risks are great.

I just formatted a drive (for my mp3 player) but I used 1024 byte block size (or allocation unit size) but I think it may have been 4096 bytes (4Kb) before. I know that the higher the block size, the faster read and writes are but the more space you waste for small files or at the end of a file.

Now I'm kind of noticing the player scans a lot longer for one song than before (which would make sense cause it's taking longer to read b/c of the smaller block size). OR I'm just imagining it. So I came here to ask, does it really make that big of a difference? Should I reformat it with 4Kb blocks?

A:How big of a difference in HD speed does "block size" make?

In the case of MP3s, they are quite a lot larger than either a 1024 or 4096 cluster size. When storing large files, you will see essentially no difference in slack space.

As for difference in performance, music plays only so fast (very slow) compared to the drive's ability to find and read data.

Slack becomes an issue when large numbers of your files are a size that is a small fraction the size of a cluster. i.e. 75 or 100 bytes when cluster size is 1024 and even worse when cluster is 4096; but, if your files are mostly a half Meg or more, slack space difference between clusters 1024 and 4096 is almost nonexistent.

University of Illinois engineers developed fiber-optic technology that can transmit data at a blazing-fast 57 gigabits per second, without errors

Feng?s group has been pushing VCSEL technology to higher speeds in recent years, and in 2014 was the first group in the U.S. to achieve error-free data transmission at 40 gigabits per second (denoted as Gbps). Now, in a series of conference papers, they report 57 Gbps error-free data transmission at room temperature, as well as 50 Gbps speeds at higher temperatures up to 85 degrees Celsius (185 degrees Fahrenheit).

Achieving high speeds at high temperatures is very difficult, Feng said, due to the nature of the materials used, which prefer lower temperatures. However, computing components grow warm over extended operation, as anyone who has worked on an increasingly heated laptop can attest.

Slow running is most likely to be caused by programs that load with Windows, not any failure of hardware. Maybe check the Startup section of MSConfig and disable any unnecessary startup programs - that's bound to resolve your issues. As for the Pri Slave recognition - that's an odd one. First off, check the BIOS still sees it then check Device Manager for conflicts. Could also be worth checking the jumper settings on the drive.

I am using Windows 7 Ultimate X64 and an Asus P5L-VM 1394 and have 4 GB of RAM installed, but only 3,25 is usable.
I think that this mainboard should support up to 8 GB, but only 3,25 is usable.
Any ideas?
Many thanks for any help!

You could try disconnecting some of your devices, and running just what you absolutly need, (main Harddrive). Then slowly add 1 piece at a time, start machine, see how it runs. (Try to eliminate a possible faulty device)

Are jumpers on devices set properly??

i've just installed a new asus board M4A88TD as stage one of a total rebuild. so i am using all my old drives, case, etc.

problem is this board has only one ide socket and i have 2 ide drives and one dvd rom drive. i suppose ide is being phased out?

i guess for 50 bucks i should buy a new sata drive. would that be a good solution? will the sata and ide drives work together on the same board?

A:New mainboard, only one IDE socket

They'll work fine together, which is why they're both offered on the motherboard. I'm not sure on the configuration options though (I'm guessing running with SATA as well you'd need to nominate disc boot order), in order for them to work effectively.

You can get the very good 1TB Samsung SpinPoint F3 hard disk around $20 more than that budget. I highly recommend it if your looking at continually upgrading.

Hello, I just installed a new main board, a VIA Samuel2 1 Giga Pro with all kinds of stuff built in, network card, sound and video. The problems I am having are :

1. Under Device Manager it says it is only running at 733 MHz, I do I get get the full 1000 ?

2. I am running Windows XP, and since I upgraded to this mother board I can not get my CD burner to work, it is a Yamaha 2200 CDR - it worked with my old 400 MHz mother board and installed without any problems. Windows XP installs what looks like the right driver, and I can see it under My Computer - it even says CD-RW but when I put in a CD it will not read it. A blank window opens, my regular reader is working fine, but it is quite old and slow 20X. Please help if you can.

Thanks alot.

A:New Mainboard 2 Problems

I don't quite understand the processor problem, what processor are you running.

733 would be 133 x 5.5, intel only sells that speed in 733 processors.

amd on the other hand would be another issue if the front side bus defaulted to 100 rather than 133 but the numbers don't add up to 733, it would be either 750 on 100fsb or 1 gig on a 133 fsb

I have been having some problems with my motherboard (Shuttle AK32A), and I am going to replace it.

I'm interested in your input on what has worked for you, (and what hasen't).

My requirements are:

Should support DDR only. (I have some now, and have heard hybrid/ mixed boards often cause problems)

Must support AMD Athelon 2000+ 1.67+ Ghz XP Thouroughbred proccessor. (because I already have it.)

Must "play nice" with a Nvidia GeForce 440MX PCI graphics card.

Should follow the ATX form factor.

Should be between $40 and $70 USD. (my return is $52)

Should not include a proccessor.

Hello all and good day, I am looking at a friends pc, he just installed a new mainboard, its an ecs elitegroup p4. It has power to it, but it doesn't sound as if the processor is doing anything, it says in the manual to connect the P4 processor auxillary case power supply connector to ATX1, I have found the ATX1 on the board, but nothing on his power supply to hook up to it, could this be the problem? Is it possible that he has not enough power to run it? I have also noticed that his cd rom doesn't eject either. I am just guessing, but I think maybe he has a problem with his power supply. Please if any one knows about the atx1 connector, let me know asap.

What you have now is what you're going to get. P4 motherboards generally haven't had windows 7-compatible drivers. There's a cutoff of what to support Windows 7 on and you're below that line, I'm afraid.

Pentium IVs aren't the best to compare to newer chips at the same speeds. Their buses are much slower and are on much larger processes.

I wouldn't even spend time upgrading to a Core 2 of any model at this point. If you're looking for a budget upgrade, a micro-ATX motherboard with an AM3 socket and a cheap Phenom II X2 or X4 processor will cost you much less in the long run. My rig has a $70 motherboard and a $120 processor (in USD). Totally worth the price.

Good luck!

Have a Manhattan ATX Case, and building my first PC. The case has dimples that rise from the metal where the mainboard lays. Case did not include plastic spacers, and the mainboard (AZZA PT-5VMX), fits just right over the dimples. My question is, where the mainboard matches the dimples with the screw openings, can the mainboard just be screwed in with metal screws? Somewhere got the impression that a mainboard should never touch any metal? Don't care to fry it, it is brand new.

Thanks for your help.

hi guys,

i bought a second hand pc for general office use...
its a fujitsu siemens scaleo thats running windows vista.

it doesnt see a hard drive (which is SATA) so i downloaded sata drivers from fujitsu website.
it was the correct model as i put the serial number in and it looked like the same model
i selected vista and put it onto a usb drive
i then pointed the installation to the usb drive and it found two sata drivers
i clicked next and it runs a setup.....but still doesnt see a hard drive
i have tried different sata cables / hard drive and power cables.
but it just wont see a drive
i have also reset the bios to defaults...nothing

i then tried an ide drive...and its not installing on there either

do you think the board has had its day?

thanks for reading

A:is the mainboard finished?

The drive should show on the screen at power up, if the info. isn't there long enough to read try again and press the Pause key.

If the drive isn't shown check the Bios settings, set the drive to IDE mode if possible as no new driver is needed then.
If that isn't possible set it to Sata/Ahci (NOT Raid). Once it shows in the Bios try installing the driver again in Windows.

I would like a card to diagnose what's up with suspect motherboards. Possibly something more than a POST reporter, perhaps a card which can support a boot on an otherwise dead board. A printable report would be ideal. looks good, but the price tag is scary - I'm not sure that the extra features warrant the cost, especially as I don't think there is much of a second user market for these. Any suggestions/recommendations welcomed.

Some people can overclock their CPU up to 4.0GHz+ but mine is only 3.5Ghz. I wonder if my Mainboard is not good at overclocking.

A:Is overclocking depending on Mainboard?

in the case of your e7500 it's the CPU the limiting factor. CPU are not born the same, peoples try quite few CPU of the same model before find a golden one that OC better. OC need a lot of experience too. Honestly you will have more chance to find answer on a OC dedicated forum.

I'm trying to get the bugs worked out of my system. AMD K7 900, EPOX EP-7KXA, ATi Rage Fury Max, 128 MB (pc-133). The video has been very unstable. Often times the computer will shut down auto and when it comes back up the video has defaulted back to 16-colors. Also when changing between desktop icons a strange "flash" of color will appear briefly. Any suggestions???

Is it a special mouse - have you re-installed drivers
have you tried removing from device manager and letting windows redetect.
