Advice on selling my bluebox.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Well I think it's a blue box, (if that's a first build PC) anyway I want to sell my PC, that I pretty much only built in the last couple of months. Mainly because I could have done so much better.

Problem is the V8 cooler. It's too big for my case and I'm already halfway through chopping up the case to fit the side panel back on. So, should I A: buy a cheap case, and cheap CPU cooler or B: by a bigger case and sell it off that way?

Pretty much any purchases I make will be from http://www.umart.com.au/
Because they are well priced and close by. Pretty much everyone in Brisbane who has any clue buys off these guys, some buy off the net but it takes forever compared to UMART, you order either at the shop or online and pick it up anywhere from 2 minutes, to a couple days if it's a "pre-order" item. They do have most popular stock, so it's not too bad.
The case at the bottom looks like it should be able to fit the V8. I'm pretty sure the specs for the V8 are 166mm high.

Cooler Master Hyper TX3
Price: $24.00

Huntkey A501 Silver Black Case with NO PSU
Price: $29.00

Thermaltake Dokker Case with HDD Dock Black
Price: $65.00

I now have a seemly worse problem. Crossfire is working, but 3 times today has shat itself, once was in windowed mode in WoW. So only the 1 GPU was working, ultra settings, after about 30mins, bad screen tearing. About 1 hour later, I had switched to fullscreen to utilize crossfire, was fine at 60-70 fps for about 30m-1hr, then same deal. Everything shuts down and desktop cannot be displayed properly, things jump all over the screen.

Turn it off for a few hours, then went into SC2. after the first mission same thing happened. I had 2 lots of GPU-z running showing sensors for both cards. Both running at about 40-60% load while playing sc2. first card on about 58c, and second card around 65c. Neither overclocked. Stock fans, stock settings. Fans on full load.

So yeah, can't sell a PC that doesn't work I guess...

Reduced everything to stock, and the temps are 5 degree hotter, this is a pic dual core OC'd.
Stock gave me such bad screen gitter I couldn't get stable pic.
