Preferred Solution: Build to go with i7 4770k?

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.)

For the past 3 mornings I have come into the office to see a lovely BSOD.
Seems to be fine during the day.
This is a new computer build that I just finished last week.
processor is i7 4770k

Originally I thought it was because I was trying to slightly overclock to 4.0 ghz but I disabled that and it still happens.

and motherboard is
ASRock Fatal1ty Z87 Killer LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Gaming Motherboard

Not sure what else people need but happy to provide any info. Thanks.

Hi, is a Seasonic M12II-620 620W enough to OC a 4770K (as far as a H110 can take it) and use a 4GB Gigabyte GTX 770 at the same time? Or would a 750W PSU be better (I'm trying to save money).

A:Is 620W enough to OC a 4770K?

GTX 770 - 230W
i7-4770K - 84W

Leaves 300W for the rest of the system, including over-clocking. The average users motherboard and drives might use 150W, and if so that still leaves 150W for over-clocking headroom with the 620W PSU.

Without knowing for sure how the power recommendations are calculated. I'm guessing when specifications for the motherboard are calculated, power usage for all card slots are calculated. This gives massive headroom, when each card slot is alloted 75W's. You are looking at 300W's allocated just for 4 card slots. If you are not using the card slots, then the allocated power essentially could be subtracted from the system power recommendation. But then the motherboard probably has a ceiling for power usage, which is used instead of calculating card slots. But the card slots do play a roll in the total power supplied to the motherboard.

Hey guys, so just have a small concern about my cpu. Just built this new pc a week ago and the cooler I use is a corsair h75, the temperatures I get are great even under load I barely pass 65c using prime 95 or intel burn test. My concern is when its on idle or I am doing anything the temperatures are constantly changing, quickly, up and down very rapidly. Never to a dangerous level buy they change so often. For example in idle Im around 25c per core but itll go up to 26c 27c 28c 29c 30c and back down and up...etc and ideas?

A:I7 4770k temperatures

Don't read core temps. That's the reading from the individual core. They vary within 10C very quickly.

Take the CPU overall temp, as this is the temp of the metal bit on the chip.

Hey guys,

Just got a Z87x-UD3H and a 4770k and I am having a lot of problems with C1E,C3,C6/7.

EIST is working fine, but having ANY of the above enabled causes random BSODs (1e,3b,d1,0a,50,24,19) the windows desktop manager to crash, and rarely the video driver.

If ALL of the options are all disabled my system operates perfectly.

Gigabyte claims it's because my psu is incompatible. I think that's crap because none of the options work. I was under the impression that was a totally different issue.
Current Hardware:
4770k @ stock
Z87x-UD3H - 6i bios

Corsair 1000HX

279GB 2x Raptors in Raid 0

Soundblaster X-Fi Titanium HD

A:C1E,C3,C6/7 BSODs with new 4770k

I would suggest you to disable RAID. How to Disable RAID: 5 Steps - wikiHow

Now boot the computer back. Is it booting OK with all the HDDs detected, including the 300 GB one? If not, enable RAID again and wait for next instruction.

If yes, uninstall Marvell 91xx SATA 6G RAID Controller in Control Panel > Programs and features. Then follow Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstall to get rid of any leftovers of the driver.

Get rid of intel rapid storage. First uninstall it from Control Panel > Programs and Features. Then Uninstall the driver from device manager.
Right click on "my computer" icon and click "manage" on the context menu.
It will open the "computer management" window.
Select "Device Manager" in the left pane, It will list all the existing devices up.
Expand "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers" by clicking on the triangle in front of it.
Select one Intel device item under it, right click, uninstall.
Continue the process for all Intel items under "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers"
Now restart the computer. At restart, windows will auto configure the appropriate native system driver.
Make it sure that your SSDs are running with up-to-date firmware.

Wanted to get some opinons on good motherboards that support the i7 4770k CPU. Thanks in advance!

A:Motherboards for i7 4770k?

Depends on your budget, but if you want favs, heres the ones I personally like and are rich with features.

MSI Gaming Z87

Asus Z87 Deluxe

Those are a few of my favs that are reasonable. There are some I love at the 400 dollar mark, but those are a bit up there in price.

Hi, I am going to OC my 4770K. I'm using an MSI Z87-GD65 Gaming and a H100.

I want my computer to last years, at least five years, but I want to OC too

What's a nice safe OC for my hardware that won't kill the lifespan of my stuff?


A:What is the max OC that is good for the longevity of my 4770K?

It's not really the clock that kills the CPU, it's the heat and voltages. So just make sure your CPU isn't running too hot (>80C) and stick to sensible voltages.

Hi, I followed a video on youtube to OC my CPU to 4.4GHZ. The thing is my CPU permanently runs at 4400mhz, I don't know if that's normal or now. I have an MSI GD56 GAMING.

These are the settings I was told to change:

Intel C-State enabled
C1E Support = enabled
Package C-State Limit = Auto
CPU Ratio Mode = Dynamic
Enhanced Turbo = Enabled
CPU Core Voltage Mode = Adaptive
CPU Ring Voltage Mode = Adaptive

Other settings that were change were just multipliers and voltages.

Is there anything I can change to get my CPU to throttle back when it's not being used?

I accidentally bought a 4770K without a cooler :/

But I have an unused 3770 stock cooler somewhere, would it be OK to use that?


A:Can the 3770 stock cooler be used on a 4770K?

I would say yes after reading the following. It seems the difference mentioned below is all in the backplate design. Since the stock cooler doesn't use a backplate, it is a non-issue.

Noctua Offers Free LGA 1150 Haswell Mounting Kit Upgrade for Older Heatsinks

Because the LGA 1150 socket keeps the same mounting hole spacing as the current LGA 1156 and LGA 1155 sockets, many newer Noctua cooler will not need the mounting kit upgrade, and can simply be installed into the Haswell machine as is. In other words, if the heatsink worked with your Lynnfield, Sandy Bridge, or Ivy Bridge-based system, it will work in a Haswell system as well.Click to expand...

I've got my build together to use a Socket 1150. I have read that one of these CPU's does not have the full/latest instruction set vs. the others. Overclocking is not important to me but I will buy the "K" series if it has the fullest instruction set.

Can anyone enlighten me further on this?

They all have the same instruction sets according to the intel site, unless im missing something, which one are you reffering to.

Those are essentially the same chip, just different clock speeds and 1 is unlocked.

I have currently have an intel 3570 rig with windows 8.1 if I get a haswell 4770k with a similar specification in ram and graphics will that feel a lot faster on the same operating system in terms of booting speed and starting up programs? And how would it compare if I decide to make the 4770k rig have windows 7 instead of 8.1 would it be faster than the 3570 in starting up windows?

Thanks for your suggestions

A:Performance 3570 vs 4770k in Windows 8.1 and Windows 7

You wouldn't see a real difference until it came to CPU intensive applications such as video editing. You wouldn't be able to straight swap a 4770 for the 3570 anyway as they're different socket types, the Ivy Bridge being 1155 and the Haswell being 1150. You'd need to replace the motherboard as well.

I'd stick with the 3570.

Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 to Build 7601?

An Icon Pack was saying install on to 7600 only and after I checked my regedit, I learned that I have 7601 (Probably SP1, I don't know).

Would I have any problems if I install the icon pack?


A:Can I install Icon Packs designed for Build 7600 on to Build 7601?

You can normally install icons anywhere you like, on any machine or system which uses them, they are merely small graphics of various types. Unless the "Icon-pack" is using software to install something else, ( in which case be careful what it does), you can install it anywhere.

Some "Icon-packs" make extensive changes to system files, are dependent on the system to which they are installed, and best avoided.

Did you burn the iso to a bootable media, then insert the media to the computer ?
If that was what you did, then you would NOT see the Mount option.
Instead, you would see the Setup option. Use that to start the installation.

It won't activate and you will end up in Safe Mode permanently. One machne = one license. You need to buy another full version. But you can do it if you don't use 7 on the old machine. You will just have to activate by phone and explain. Then if you go online with both, one will deactivate and go to Safe Mode.

I've been stuck on build 11102.rs1_release.160113-1800.
Going to Settings. Update & Security, Check for updates says "your device is up to date".
Checked for updates at least 10 times and always get the same response "Your device is up to date".

I don't want to download an ISO and clean install - I'd like to get the insider updates through
the standard update process.

Any suggestion or solutions?


A:build 11102 will not download latest build 14271

Try this - worked for me in a similar situation.

I deleted all folders in the software distribution folder, selected to leave Insider Program from updates menu, rebooted, rejoined Program and then it found the updates. Try just deleting folders first and checking for updates. That works for some but did not for me (it was the leaving and rejoining that seemed to do the trick).

If you try rejoining and leaving, make an image backup of 11102 first, just in case leaving and rejoining should cause it not to activate (especially if you never started from a valid 7/8 licence). Good idea to make the backup anyway in case the upgrade fails (you would then have to go back to 10586 and start afresh)

hi ,,, i also use utorrent,,, as regards tweeks, there is not much you can do,,, its more to do with your hardware if you want faster and more stable downloads and what profile your broadband is,,, im on an 6meg profile and achive about 5 meg as im about 2km fromthe exchange,,, i use a site called in the uk and they sugest useing a router and resetting the MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit ) files collide then it has to be sent again,,, if the mtu is set to high it could be to fast and collisions happen and it has to be sent to you again slowing the download,,, default for ethernet setup on a windows os is 1500,,, to high,,, i reset mine to 1423 and torrents take less time now because files dont have to be re sent. in ADSL tab at the top of the page and then "tweeking mtu" ,,,,,,,,,,,,,, good luck

After updating to this insider build my start menu,cortana menu,WiFi menu and action center do not work,how can I fix these?

Also sfc /scannow does not work "Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair service." - FIXED with batch file

Settings menu will not open since the start menu wont,even the personalization menu from the desktop does not open.

A:Windows 10 build insider build 14295

Assuming you updated to 14295 through Windows Update ?
If yes, try to reinstall using the newly released 14295 ISO file.....

Download the iso file that corresponds to your Win 10 Insider Preview version ( i.e. language and bit-version )> save it to a folder.
Right click at the iso file > click Mount > click Setup.exe.
Installation will begin.
No product key is required.
Activation will be automatic.

Hopefully, reinstall will fix the problems.

Hi All,
I am currently running OS 7 Beta RC Build 7100. Were do I get this newer version, is there a big difference? And am I able to upgrade to the newer Beta?

I realize that October is fast approaching for the RTM but I plan to keep running the Beta for a couple of months past the Grand Opening.

Is it possible that all the updates that I have received equally add up to the newer build?

A:Upgrade from Build 7100 to Build 7264?

I'm still wondering where people got build 7600. :/
I'm running the same build as you, but this beta is gonna expire soon, so we got no choice but to get the RTM.

Somewhat unusual situation here. A machine running the latest build (11102) got badly infected by malware. It was such a major attack that I was about to reload the earlier day's image from my Windows Home Server. But it seemed even easier to revert to the previous build, not yet removed from the Windows.old folder. This I did, and everything soon was running fine as expected.

The issue is that the Updates check is not offering Build 11102 again. This isn't a showstopper; I'm sure there will be another newer build soon. But it would be nice to be back up on this latest build, just as all my other Win10 machines are running.

Does anyone know how to make this happen?

Windows 7 has reached RTM builds
and there will be several candidate builds in RTM.

first candidate build of RTM is build 7260.

6.1.7260.0.win7_rtm.090612-2110 - RTM branch build

compiled on 12 june.

You may ask why the first assembly win7_rtm has already been collected on 12 June not 15 June. There are several working groups involved in the process of assembling win 7 RTM build and will be assessing the quality of assemblies. Once the assembly is collected and its quality is confirmed, only then they put to the vote.

you may take time to understand all of these steps and procedures, so only the assembly from June 12 and June 15, attained the status of the real candidates for the final RTM release.

Good, except for the E6600. Get the E6400 and overclock it (should overclock well with that board and your ram, without blowing up your processor in 3 years). Will save you quite a bit of money that way.

Also just a personal recommendation. Get the Enermax Noisetaker II 485W PSU instead.

Hello Pkshadow Welcome to the Ten Forums!

The prompting you are seeing is most likely to get you to notice and install updates that have been accumulating. Otherwise that is a strange one. You might have to sign into an MS account if you already had one setup in order to see that account's information updated on the change from Insider to Anniversary. That would then see everything synced properly.

Consider the AMD AM3 Propus 620 quad core 2.6 GHz for $99.00 at NewEgg with free shipping and for a few dollars more there is the 630 @ 2.8 Ghz. Both chips are getting great reviews.

A:Build specs. Can you build it?

The issue I see: your mobo supports "ONLY" 4th gen CPU and your CPU of choice is a 5th gen (gen=generation). Even though the mobo is socket 1150, same as CPU, there may bay some firmware incompatibilities. Not sure if there is a BIOS update for the mobo to support 5th gen CPU's, which I doubt it does.

So you may want to consider a new mobo that supports intel's 5th gen series CPU's. Also; there's no mention of a PSU (power supply). I would also move up to a GTX 970's just a better GPU period.

I want to keep the following:

1. Corsair 750W PSU,
2. Antec 1200 case, and
3. EV3A 460GTX 756MB GPU.

In other words I likely need a new motherboard, processor, cooling fan for the processor, RAM, etc. I don't know if I'll need a sound card or ethernet card or if on-board will be good enough.

No its not worth overclocking, it performs worse than a i7 940 at stock when its at 3.4Ghz. Its not worth the voltage you have to put on it. If you're going to buy this thing it shouldnt be to overclock. It should be because you're (A), a fan boy or (B) are on a budget and want to take advantage of the price wars right now. This is not (C) an overclocking cpu<--the improvements over stock arent worth it.

A:First build, what GPU?

yes you want to buy the GTX 260, be sure to buy the 55nm and not the 65nm they have the same name. so check the manufacture date.

The big Red Flag for me is that power supply. Its garbage. I don't know anything about case but the rest are solid parts. You don't mention what video card you'll be running but spend the cash on a good psu. You're only asking for headaches otherwise.

i have a pentium 4 prescott overclocked at 3.9 if im not mistaken. i was wondering should i keep this (what seems to be vastly outdated) cpu or sell it and begin anew? is it worth keeping i guess would be the appropriate question.

Here is the build I am buying.

CPU Cooler:
DVD Drive:

Can you guys look over it and see if.

The Heat sink is compatible with the CPU/Mobo
The RAM is compatible with the mobo
The VGA is compatible with the mobo
The CPU and Mobo are compatible

A:Build help.

Looks like they will all play nice together, but I would suggest finding an ATX mobo instead of the Micro atx. Your buying a medium tower that can hold ATX so theres no real reason to get a board that you have to squeeze everything onto that I'm aware of and later you may appreciate the extra space.

This ASUS board seems to have everything yours has and then some. If you ever wanted dual vid cards in the future it would be good to have and is only $10 more than your pick.

Your motherboard manual will tell you what the beep(s) mean. I'd recommend reseating your RAM and shifting the DIMMs to different slots, reseating the CPU HSF and video card and checking for shorts between the motherboard and case.

Several years ago, I built my own PC which has served me admirably. However, as the usefulness for my system wears thin, I realize it is time to upgrade to bigger and better things. When I built my system, AGP was all the rage, and Pentium 4 was the best you could buy. Of course, this has changed.

While I understand the basics of PC building, I'm a bit intimidated by the new technologies out there. I'm sure with the right resources I could get up to speed quickly, but I'm also wondering if it would be cheaper to just flat out buy a system with the way the economy is currently...I can imagine systems might be cheap these days.

A:Build or buy my next pc, what's better now?

Only thing I can say is the Motherboard integrates most of what you added. As for case, power supply Monitor and drives, You might consider buying a system and doing an upgrade like changes if you feel inclined. I used to build systems for sale but along about the Pentium3 the manufactures started integration of video, network, sound,ect. Drove me out of business. If you really know what you want you probably can build a great system but you might also consider a Laptop. Everything in one small package.

Hmm, if only you had waited for all of the back to school specials that these online sites offer. One I found at is an i7 with a nice X58 MB and pretty nice kit in all facets. - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!
6gig of DDR3 RAM, coolermaster case, i7 T930 is one of the best rated of the lot. X58 board is sweet, but it is the A version not the D, A version is better from what I have read from reviewers.
This chip makes OCer's drool, it will upclock to 4.0 from 2.8 from what I have read, I wish I had the expendable cash to own one to see.
I am upgrading my kit this summer, but will hang in a few weeks longer to see if they drop the prices even lower. Back to school does not end just because the school opens, it takes a few weeks after that before they stop the deals.

A:pc build

To just test the basic build, you must have the CPU, heat-paste, heat sink, cpu fan, RAM, power supply

Generally, you want the case fan arrows to point toward the rear of the case, pulling air from the front to the back. This will help keep the hard drives cooler, and will go more in line with the power supply pushing air out of the back

You can use the IDE interface for hard drives as well as the CD/DVD.

The system will boot just fine with any type of bootable CD or DVD in the drive -- no drivers needed.

I'll often use a small bootable Linux distribution CD to do a test of a PC's function when there is no hard drive connected. You can even boot from the Windows Install CD, just to make sure the bits and bytes are making it to the CPU

Hi and welcome to TSG.

First thing I would ask is what PSU do you currently have (make, model and wattage) as that will quite likely be a significant factor in your build. Afterall, it is probably one of the single most important parts of the system and one that is often overlooked when building a custom machine.

What are the makes and models of the other parts you have? Again, this may impact on the components you buy to upgrade as they must be compatible.

As a M$ stockholder, you might want to consider that the money you spend on a copy of Windows XP would go right into the same pocket. This unless they've decided to start giving XP away. (Sorry, sometimes my imagination runs away with me).

An OEM copy of Windows is forever tied to the computer in which it's originally installed. You, as the installer, are responsible for support of the software, which is drastically curtailed by M$ in an OEM.
As you know, it's half the price. That should take some of the sting out of the forgoing points.

Vista driver support is a tad dodgy at the moment. 64 bit even more so. You would still need to install a 64 bit OS should you want or need to utilize more than about 3GB of RAM.

That 8800 Card is a massive power draw. You would be best with a PSU of about 600 Watts, Seasonic and Fortran Source (FSP) come to mind.

I understand that I have made a thread about this before. I have made a new one because it has been a while since my last.

The bank finally decided to give me my own money.

I would like to ask is there anything new out that wasn't then, or could be better?

Here is my lineup:

Case (already bought) @ 113.39
PSU @ 72.85
Mobo @ 139.97
CPU (that was picked out) @ 198.75
RAM @ 58.77
HD 4850 x2 Crossfire @ 217.92
HDD @ 44
CD Drive @ 17.74
Vista x64 @ 64.25
Water Cooling @ 234.99
GPU water blocks x2 @ 97.24
Water cooling nozzles @ 5.51
Water cooling Crossfire Connection nozzles @ 7.51
Fan controller @ 32.31
G15 Keyboard @ 50.29

The CPU and RAM are being changed, please be aware of that.

Thanks all,

A:New Build

The PSU is not as good quality-wise as the rest of your components. I recommend the Seasonic M12 700W as a superb replacement. Everything else looks excellent.

A:Please Help Me Build a New Rig

I like the Antec 1200 case better.

I understand your hesitance with ATI, but would recomend you look at the 4850, or the 4870.

I would consider a BluRay drive with this system.

I would get a Velociraptor HD from Western Digital

And maybe a higher wattage(stay with a good brand) PSU, to allow for future growth.

Nothing I said is cheap, and will probably increase the cost to you by 500-750 dollars.

You have a pretty nice rig for 1k.... If you want to spend a few more bucks, I would look into some the other stuff i listed.

I just put a K7S5A motherboard with an Athalon XP 1600+ in with some of my other hardware, Everyghting seems to be working fine except when it gets to the point where Windows XP should load, I get a halt error, I am curious whether I have format and reinstall Windows XP, or if the problem is more likely a bios problem.

The error reads STOP:0x0000007b (0xf9e49640, 0xc0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
