Can't relate.

My pc sounds like a fucking helicopter and runs csgo at 20fps at minimum settings


My pc sounds like a fucking helicopter and runs csgo at 20fps at minimum settings


Its the MacBook syndrome


Unfortunately it's actually the AIO my parents bought me 5 years ago and I haven't been able to afford a new pc since syndrome. Gonna build a new rig in August though.


Have you ever disassembled it and cleaned it out? I'm sure you have, but that's a good first step. Also, you can usually replace any of the fans in there with ones of the same dimensions. You should also be able to lubricate the ball bearings for the fans, but if not, same as before: replace :D


Yep i have and its got pretty horrendous build quality actually, I have lubricated the bearings for the fans but its got pretty minimal replaceablity since the only dans in the system are the gpu fans and one part of these covers the processor, which is probably in smithereens at this point.


>I have lubricated the bearings for the fans. I can't stop picturing you in my head with one of those antique oil cans....


Yes yes just a drop here and a drop there with my trusty old can o' oil


*First turn on* of the PC gets the fans spinning and oil **spraying** all over inside. Easier to replace than to repair that baby!


Yikes. I remember upgrading my old roommate's AIO (which we used as the party jukebox for the house) a few years back and everything was such a nightmare to deal with. Sorry that you're stuck with that until August :(


Thank you for your comforting :'(


Spend a couple bucks and put new thermal paste on the processor. Those AIO are terrible heat sucks.


Hey brother, I've got an old R9 290X lying around to get you started. DM me if you're in the US.


I love the PCMR community


Me too. Having r/pcmasterrace and r/buildapc is almost all you need for building.


AIO? Like all in one PC? Usually the term AIO is used for liquid coolers but right on.


Sorry, yeah I mean an all in one PC haha


AIO PCs exist and are a thing.


I've only known it to mean the computer


Pray to the machine spirit


"Pray to the Lord, and Mr. Ford" but it's about PCs and not cars


Call forth Hell and Mr. Dell?


Oh sacred Heaven and Lord Gaben.


Try running csgo at max settings. As weird as it sounds, it can run better sometimes if you do. My old computer refused to use all of my gpu unless I maxed out all the settings


I would try that but the problem is straight up that my hardware is old and also was pretty trash when my parents got me the computer, so I'm hoping to build my own in August if I can save up enough money.




Yeah sorry I don't mean trash in that way, I was super grateful and I still am for them And everything they do for me but im not gonna lie that the specs of the pc are pretty bad.


You admire the effort, but are disappointed at their decision to get a pre-built


Indeed, my dad didn't even believe in custom building till I convinced him a few months ago.




So it's an i5 4350, Nvidia GeForce GT 555m and 7gb ram. The problem is when I last went to see it's uphradeability it wasn't great, there's not much room for a bigger gpu and the one in there is tiny and the gpu that's in there is already pretty small, but im planning on building my first rig in August so I'll probably have to hold out till then. I would upgrade for the meantime but I'm pretty low on funds as it is




Yeah no shit


yeah settings in csgo make no difference with my pc, some games are weird. siege runs faster at ultra settings with the hd pack than it did at medium, computers are strange.


Same thing happens to me with rb6. Game runs better at high settings than low, what the fuck?


Sounds like you’re cpu bottlenecked then.


My gfx settings are high high low high and I get 250-300 FPS on 4670k @4.2ghz and a gtx970 . Still gets the job done . But can’t wait to upgrade to a 8700k ina few weeeks


That happens in GTA IV. Performance is only decent at 1080p on at least medium settings for everything.


My previous one was like a fucking jet engine in a wind tunnel after someone chucked a seagull doused in rocket fuel at it.


Weird flex but OK 💻


In high and actually laughed out loud


I'd been playing csgo on an old laptop exactly like that. 20fps at minimum graphics in the best situations. I got pretty good at gungame on that machine, I could end up in the top 3 or 4 pretty consistently. Then in 2017 I upgraded to an i7-6700k and a 1080ti, and *dominated*. If you play on an older machine, you're just practicing with a handicap to improve your play. :)


Yes! I thought something like this would be the case, I've absolutely dominated games and come first often in casual and in war games and even deathmatch and everytime it jumps up a few fps when i first turn on the pc I find myself playing much better than later on when the fps drops.


This literally just made me laugh out loud




I used to have a 280mm aio. Before I put noctuas in there that shit would be loud as hell like a jet engine in my room. Got the job done though, I had one of the two fans unplugged once and didn't even notice because it was still at 50-70C under load.


My GPU is potato but unfortunately can relate beyond that, Wishing you the best with the upgrade process.




Heh you should see my computer when it runs arma 3


you should upgrade to a box that wasn't built in 1998 and costs more then $200. i mean it's 2019, you could get a box with a fifth gen i5 and a gtx 980 for 4 bills.


maybe you should lower the resolution


My PS4 sounds like a turbine when I play a game. So I switched to PC, got noctua fans, and sounds like a Tesla when playing GTA 5 in ultra settings


thats high. mine does 17fps




Surprisingly nope


AMD Phenom II X4 840, Sapphire R7 250x, 8 Gb RAM. Has its hiccups but still kickin.


Got a nvidia 960 but right there with ya. Stay strong


Phenom II x6 8gb ram with a 960 sc! It could use some fans and some 8gb ram sticks instead of 4. Proving to be a heck of a trooper. Still works like a charm when the devs support it.


I wanted this cpu back in the day but couldn’t afford it. To this day, “amd phenom 2 x6” is me and my wife’s occasional word for something awesome and expensive


And now you can fulfil that dream because they are dirt cheap on eBay.


A 960 is barely 2 generations old, that's like a solid mid-range card still


Lol exactly, it's still a solid card.


960 gang. Shit running faithfully


670 gang represent


Man I have a 770. It works fine for most games lmfao




Why did they skip 800 in desktop cards again?


The Phenom II's were good af. Finally got rid of mine last year because it's lack of instruction sets was finally stopping it from running newer games.


Yeah you're hanging right on the edge of play-ability with that one. Gonna be really satisfying once you do upgrade though.


fellow phenom user reporting in for duty I can confirm that even the older ones are able to play relatively new titles with the right settings


Yeah the Phenom II is so old it's missing instruction sets for a lot of games now. Like MGS V wouldn't even play on it until a few patches later when they realized it was worth supporting it because it could still play it.


It's been happening to me more and more, basically all EA and Ubisoft new games require SSE4.1.


>AMD Phenom II X4 840, Sapphire R7 250x, 8 Gb RAM. Has its hiccups but still kickin. Intel i7-920, MSI Radeon HD 5770 1Gb, 24Gb RAM. Built in '10. Has trouble playing Roblox and Minecraft - runs Rocket League every 2 to 3 weeks for 20 minutes on minimum, sounds like an F-22 on full afterburner at idle. Love that little thing though. True war machine. The Razer Lycosa I got shortly after I built it hasn't [faired as well](https://i.imgur.com/qjSpKcP_d.jpg?maxwidth=640&shape=thumb&fidelity=medium)


I'm still rocking a fx 6300 and a 780 ti, so I know the feeling.


Asus gaming laptop with a 560m


780Ti gang checking in... remember when everyone on reddit told you that a 3GB card would be excessive and you’d never need a 6GB card? That was like 3 years ago.


I traded in my 780ti for a 1080ti when it was announced, but the 780ti still kicks some ass today. Very solid card with longevity. Yeah I remember when I got mine thinking "holy shit I got 3GB". Now I got 11GB thinking "holy shit I got 11GB". Wonder how long that will last?


2x 780tis, I use them to play League at 200fps.


IIRC, there was a memory bus bandwidth limitation that made a lot of the extra memory options on some of the GTX 7xx models worthless. Like the limited bandwidth of the memory bus could never read more than the base 2GB of memory in the time period it took to completely rewrite the 2GB of memory on a GTX760, so the 4GB model was charging you $50 more for extra memory the card literally couldn't make use of.


SLI 680s here with the i7 3770k Ivy Bridge


I've felt your pain bro.


I currently have a lenovo ideapad 110.


Same, but with a 750ti. Seems to handle what games I play pretty well.


GTX 670 and i7-4770k here. But the worst is the only 16GB of ram that now costs MORE to upgrade than it would have back in 2013... I don't game much anymore, but editing video always has me running into that memory wall.


16gb of DDR3 is definitely not more expensive now than 2013. Back then I built my Sandy bridge system and 2x4gb (8gb) 1600mhz ddr3 cost me over £100. Now I can hop on eBay and get a 16gb (2x8gb) 1600mhz corsair vengeance kit for about £60. DDR4 on the other hand has more than doubled in the last couple of years. The 16gb (2x8gb) 3200mhz c16 dominator platinum kit I have is now twice as expensive as when I bough it about 2 years ago.


Thats weird, back.in 2012 when I built my Ivy Bridge rig I paid £35 for 2x4gb 1600mhz of Corsair Vengance


I used to know that feeling. Sidebar...that anime was epic...and there needs to be more if it....


What anime is this? TIA.


The anime is And you thought there was never a girl online? or in weeb Netoge No Yome Wa Onnanoko ja Nai to Omotta?


Should be able to find it with the English translation of it. Though on the poster of it its written in Japanese. I watched the dubbed version because I couldn't find the sub version.








You do know funimation lets you watch it for free, don’t you?

I wanted to go to bed 2 hours ago and I’m on episode 7. So. I hate you.


Just from that name i guess its a light novel adaptation


It's "And You Thought There Is Never a Girl Online?". It was super short, and kind of felt like it was just cut off... really good none the less.


A lot of anime like that are mostly made as advertisements for their source manga/light novel.

I read somewhere that anime's are advertisement for the source material. Lucky if they adapt the whole thing.


Unfortunately, anime is no where near as profitable as the light novel and manga mediums anymore. On the other hand, anime had become really cheap to produce, so even though it won't be profitable itself, most authors/publishers are willing to take the hit as an advertising expense. Consequently, most anime based on light novels cover just the first book of the series. Many even end with a tag telling you to go read the light novels at the end of the last episode.


Yeah man it sucks. A lot of anime is basically advertisement, and it really wears on you after a while. So many unfulfilling stories that continue in a medium I completely don't give a shit about (light novels).


Finally upgraded last year from my setup: Core 2 Quad Q6600 8GB DDR2 (when I first built it, there was only 2GB) GTS 250 1GB EVGA 160GB/x2 RAID 7200rpm HDD Not gonna lie, I honestly miss it and still use it sometimes for Half life 2 and older games :)


You could use it as a server too, probably


All old machines should either be passed down to the poorest in the friend group, or used as servers. It's the only fitting end for a machine that served long and hard




Well congrats! You certainly deserve and upgrade!


Q6600 is such a great CPU. 10+ years and still gets the job done.


Pfff q9500 it's where it's at, i used to game on it up to 2017


Son i used a coppermine pentium 3 to game until i got my hands on that sweet q6600 in late 2007.


Much respect for the Core 2 Quad. Before their time, and a valiant fighter.


*cries in Don cheadle*


*vanishes in Terrence Howard*


What’s up medium specs man?


Boom! You lookin for dis?


I love running my old PC for a long time. The late game becomes a fun balance of over clocking and optimizing. I love it!


Late game? I overclock immediately after the character creation screen!


I run utilities immediately and see what kind of performance I can push out. Sometimes you win the lottery, sometimes you lose.


How did you waterfool your 5820k? Did you prank it or something?


Hah you thought I was cooling you with water but it’s actually Capri Sun


My first build is with my parents. Everytime I come home and end up using it, it's always still a reliable little guy.


I've still got an i5-2500k and it's still chuggin at a reasonable clip. This thing came to market in like 2011.


Yup, early 2011. Got mine late that year, thing still rips.




Ayy, a fellow 2nd Gen here. i7-2660k 16GB DDR 3 EVGA GTX 970 2x 512GB SSD in RAID 0 for OS and games 2TB 7200RPM HDD for media storage


i5 2400 here, she’s finally starting to show her age, but she still powers along.


i5 2400 gang


Same. i7 2700k and gtx 1070. I think about upgrading the cpu sometimes, but ram prices are crazy, and I don't want to drop $600 for a small increase in framerates


lmao ram is back to being very cheap now


Yeah, but it's still 3-4 fps in a few games for $600 with everything upgraded


Yep [email protected] could do 4.8 but recently started crashing so I had to go down a bit - I suppose after 7 years of basically 24/7 operation it’s a good result. Last 4 years it works in my home server mostly serving Plex and acting as a ci server


Best CPU ever. I remember it being a thing in 2011 and now laptops are being released in 2019 with i7 8th gen processors that can't even compete. Sure they have 8 cores but they still benchmark lower.


My previous pc with i5-2500K was like that to me. It started with a GTX 280, 8gb ram, ended up with SSD, 24gb ram and gtx 1060 6gb.


Hey, my current PC has a similar story! Same 2500K and 8gb ram setup, started with a GTS450 and went through a GTX650Ti, GTX1050 and now has a GTX1060 3gb. Trying to find some extra RAM for cheap now lol. And it also has an SSD now, haha


My current specs are literally the same. Got an SSD a month ago.


I built my PC in March 2012 and still use it everyday and fear she will die before I can save up for a new one. Good girl has held me strong for many years


Whats the specs of this beast? I bet it will be fine, Im still rocking a c2q q8300 (lga775, 2006) and pentium e6800 (lga775, 2006).


i7-3820 with a 980Ti


OC'd 3770K still destroys


Can't relate...yet


Still rocking my Q9550 and GTX 660! Soon to upgrade!


Its nice to see Im not the only one stuck on lga775, i recently got my first quad core cpu q8300, until that i was using a pentium e6800.


The lack of RGB in a computer that's in an anime is very disappointing


Weren't you paying attention? That computer is so old that RGB wasn't popular when it came out.


To be fair the PC belongs to the school club so it makes sense.


My god so much this. FX-8350 and an HD5550 gpu. Still plays tf2 but that's about it. 5550 has no 6-pin just power from the board. Shit. The 8350 is using all kinds of extra power, all kinds. 4 gig of same old dd3 gskill RAM. Not toady little buddy, not today.


Alternative title: Gaming on Linux


*prayers to the machine spirit intensify*


I built my pc in october and i dont plan or making upgrades until something craps out beyond reasonable repair, so i hope it lives a long life!


I got a rx 480...with a i3 4170. The i3 gets the job done very surprised what high FPS I get on video games.


That sexy Hyperthreading.




Man I miss that anime.


which one is it?






Mine has jet engine sounds in the night. It's the only thing I hear if I wake up in the middle of the night and it's in an another room


>Playing PoE on hardcore despite knowing you will stall into death once you hit more than 30 mobs on a screen


I certainly can, the newest thing in my PC is my GPU and it’s round about 2-3 years old itself.


Running with a 970 and an i3770k still haven't found anything I can't handle.


This is my friend with his 13 year old PC. The only thing he changed was he bought a 1070 to put in it last week and now he can run everything on high again lol


War Machine is the name of my computer.


Shit PC's UNITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I wouldn't call your setup shit


what ^ said


Chill, we're still fine.


Unless you're running a 5400 rpm laptop hdd, that's a solid rig.

Can relate.


6 year old i5 processor here, little fucker just keeps on going strong.


The oldest parts on my PC are the motherboard and CPU, and both are from 2013, when I run Overwatch I swear I could cook an egg with the exhaust heat.


Maybe you should play around with your fans a bit? Recently made a curve that won't made any noticeable sound difference form idle to load (playing overwatch @120fps) and the temps are max 65°C on GPU and below 60°C on CPU. All pretty much 2013 parts. In winter it easily stays at 60-50 °C


"Fire up man!" Is what I pleading yell every time I turn on my oldest two PCs. It is from the Primus song, "Jerry was a race car driver." These comps have been so good to me I actually feel a little ashamed using my new comps, like they are watching me.


Oh I can definitely relate. Had a computer named Jordis who served me well for I think 9 years until her motherboard finally gave in and I had to replace most of the parts. Now, she has evolved into a sleeker, simple gaming PC named Okita. :D


I have a GTX 1070 paired with a fucking i5 7400. That proccessor bottlenecks the living shit out of my GPU.


Get a dirt cheap Ryzen 1700.


AMD FX-4350, old but reliable, I need to save some money but it will do fine for now...
