In Topic: Weird sound coming from speaker

14 September 2014 - 03:19 PM

It sounds like ordinary power-line hum, from what I can tell. That could be the result of several things, such as poor filtering in the speaker's power supply, poor filtering in the motherboard's sound circuits, or leakage of an electromagnetic field from a nearby appliance. Try to note if some appliance, such as a refrigerator/freezer, radio, TV, etc, is running at the same time. Or try to see if it only happens when you have some device such as your cell, tablet, etc, plugged into it's charger nearby.

In Topic: is an i7 4790k worth it?

I concur. The HT of the i7 will not do anything for GW2.

I run an HD7870, which is basically the same as the R9 270. I was able to run GW2 at 'high' settings (Sampling: native), so I wouldn't be concerned there.

Yup, that one is based off Bay Trail (the latest generation of atom CPUs).
Yikes! That's even worse.
I looked it up on the Intel "Ark" listing, but didn't take a close enough look at it.

I was going to suggest that you could upgrade it to a cheap i3, but it's an FCBGA1170 socket, which I don't think is even a "socket" (but just soldered right to the board) - not a standard LGA1150/1155/1156.

Try using the -repair or -image command.

I believe this is the correct forum
You are correct. :)

The Pentium J2900 is one of those newer Pentiums that are based on crippled "I" series chips. The poster above seems to think it will work OK, but I wouldn't expect much - in fact, I would think it should suck badly. :)

If you can, before you buy the game, download it and install it on the computer. Then get someone you know to log in with their account and see how well it plays. (No, this is not 'illegal', and no you can't 'steal' the other guys account - you'll still need to buy your own account 'key' to use it yourself.)
