  1. Too much hassle to take my cpu to my brothers PC...

    Tried 1 ram stick, tried no ram (no beep codes)

    Cleared CMOS with the jumper and by removing battery and all.

    Found the Asrock 970 Pro3 R2.0 mobo for 70euro. If the CPU is not cooked, then I could use my RAM and CPU.... Could not find my CPU  for purchase locally, so I hope it is the mobo.


    If I go for a new CPU and Mobo, then I will need new RAM and maybe GPU in the near future. Hard to find better than the Fx8350 on a budget


    EDIT: Any suggestions on a CPU and Mobo combo on a budget?

  2. Is this PSU any good? Enermax Revolution X't II 80+ Gold 650W (ERX650AWT)

    Found it at a good price



    So I order this Enermax Revolution X't II 80+ Gold 650W PSU.

    Cost me only 58 euro, and I thought it's good enough just in case something else is cooked in my system. 


    EDIT: Going to cancel my order of the Enermax and get the Corsair TX-M Series TX650M or the TX550M. 


    550w should be enough 



  3. Yes it is a good system. My PSU died and I hope nothing else is affected. I still have not placed my order for a PSU. The thing is that with 10 or 20 euro more, I can get a better PSU.

    Even a Be Quiet one level better. 

    Not sure about the BeQuiet PSUs. Read positive reviews for the Be Quiet Pure Power 11 PSUs. Other reviews are negative. Not sure if negative reviews are due to price since in the US it's more expansive as a European PSU...

    Some reviews you cannot trust, user reviews give the better picture.


    I found the Be quiet Pure Power 11 600W 80 Plus Gold and the Corsair CX650 80 Plus Bronze for the same price.... kind of between the two now.


  4. Hi,

    my PC is getting old now. You can see the specs in my signature.

    My Corsair HX SERIES 650W POWER SUPPLY has died on me, and I'm looking for a replacement,


    What do you guys think of the Be-Quiet System Power 9 600W PSU?  (They seem popular in Europe where I live now, and I found this at a good price)

    Is 600W enough for my system? Should I go lower in watts or higher?

    Looked at some PSU Calculators and they recommend 600W


    Any thoughts and suggestions are appreciated. 

    Thanks in advance.

  5. I have grown out of time for games, and so I think that this might be a good time to totally switch to Linux. Since I also want to play around with Python etc. What I still use a lot is the Adobe products for work, but I do have a beast of a laptop that work has purchased for me, and that runs all that.

    Should I look into getting a new GPU? An Nvidia one and throw away my current one? Would I also need a new CPU for better linux support?

  6. You have to use the open source AMD drivers, AMD catalyst drivers are broken on ubuntu.

    Yes I thought so, but how do I use the live cd in order to install linux if I cannot see what I'm doing. I will need a different installation method?

    Always seem to be missing somethings, needing to do something in order to make linux work. At least with an AMD Gpu. And the funny thing is that I always prefer AMD GPU over Nvidia on my desktop and I miss out on linux.


    I might just build a mini machine with an APU and just run linux on it, or get a new video card from Nvidia :(

  7. Hi again,

    well today I thought of trying again so that I can start learning Python. I thought of trying to install linux again.

    Tried latest Ubuntu, SUSE and Mint.

    I could run them using Virtualbox but without any hardware acceleration.

    I could not even run the LiveCDs as I got graphics glitches and the screen is not readable. I guess I could go ahead an read on forums etc. and try and find a solution, but to be honest I could not be bothered. Sick of doing that.

    Why can't we just have things work out of the box in computers?

    I would need to purchase a new PC in order to run Linux... :( Either an Intel APU, or with an Nvidia Gpu.

    OR I could just forget about it for some time again and just run Python under win10
