  • Are you able to use a GPU as a computer without a CPU?

    Best answer: No.

    Most people would agree that "using a computer" entails some or all of the following:

    bootstrapping an operating system,
    loading and executing applications,
    interacting with the user,
    controlling peripherals,
    accessing permanent storage.
    While it is true that GPUs are acquiring features previously associated only with host systems (e.g., supporting virtual memory, on-demand paging, and the ability to access host's and peer GPUs' memory), they can basically perform none of the functions listed above autonomously.

    While the heavy lifting associated with any GPU computation (kernel) takes place on the GPU itself, most operations that control a kernel's lifecycle belong in the GPU driver: a piece of code carefully crafted by the GPU manufacturer, but running on the host's CPU.

    Best answer: Are you sure about that Jamin? I had the same problem as the original poster. I know Jamin is very wrong, and this person is trolling the internet. OP I had your problem once in my life time, and this is when I was starting to learn how to use my first computer. I screwed it up, so bad that my hardware malfunctioned, and my computer was freezing. I downloaded a lot of software that was infected, and some of it was not infected, so this was my fault, and I learned from my mistake. The freezing part was caused by me using too much of my computer's resources. My mouse pointer started to slow down, and then it froze on my screen.

    I don't know what's on your computer, and how much resources that you used. If you use too much of your computer's resources, then your computer will malfunction, and maybe it might stop working as well.


    My first computer was a piece of crap. I think it only had 1 core, and 512 mb ram. I assume either your computer is crap like my ancient computer that malfunctioned, or maybe you are using too much of your computer's resources.

    You can try replacing your computer's hard drive, and if this does not solve your problem, then you can try upgrading your RAM. If upgrading your RAM does not solve your problem, then my last suggestion is upgrading your CPU. If you can't upgrade your CPU, then you might need to buy a better computer.

    Computers have: 1 core, 2 core, 3 core, 4 core etc.

    The more cores your computer has, then the faster your computer should be, but you can't overlook RAM. RAM is used, for multitasking, and you need a good amount of RAM.

    1 core should just say the name of the CPU.

    2 cores is also known as dual-core processor.

    4 cores is also known as quad-core processor.


    You can look into what I said further by yourself if what I said interests you.

  • Amd athlon x2 good for gaming?

    I recently found my moms old windows vista computer with amd athlon x2 on it. I found a way to get windows 10 on it. If I do that would I be able to play any games on it? I think it has either 4 or 8gb of ram.

  • When considering a computer should I get an All-in-one Liquid cooler or an Air Cooler?

    Best answer: I have both.

    Most of the time I pay a little more for the AIO cooler because they're easier to manage and the fans add exhaust pressure to the top of the case. I can also spotcool the VRM. Primarily I buy 240mm or 280mm AIO coolers because the 120mm coolers are worthless. There isn't a huge leap from going with a Corsair h115i, EVGA CLC 280mm, or Kraken x62 over the Noctua D15, because the only time those large AIO coolers beat out the large air cooler is when you have the fans at 100%. In the end the difference is an opinion like Coke vs Pepsi or Ford vs. Chevy.

    The drawback of the AIO cooler is the radiator has an aluminum core. That and the pump really isn't that fast. They really aren't any better or worse than a comparable heatsink. If you put a high RPM aftermarket fan with a lot of static pressure on the D15, it would outperform any of these AIO coolers with their stock fans.

    AIO coolers break all the time and the main thing that goes out on them is the pump. When AIO coolers came out in 2010, there were many complaints out leakage but that doesn't happen quite as much because the manufacturing process is more refined. Corsair for instance, will replace the parts in your PC if one of their AIO coolers leaks and destroys the parts. NZXT offers a limited guarantee that won't cover everything. Aside from that, if you're looking for reliability then go with an aircooler.

    Let me put it to you this way. If I was building the system for someone other than myself, I would use an aircooler. Like I said, too much can go wrong with an AIO cooler and when it goes wrong it might happen at the wrong time. AIO coolers are only good if you're trying to manage space in your PC or you're going to overclock. You need a really big AIO cooler for overclocking.

    Personally, I haven't had an AIO cooler break and I've owned quite a few of them. Some of them ran for a really long time and they had no trouble. I had a PC paired with the h8 and a Core i7-2600k. The H80 was good for moderate overclocking and it ran with that Core i7-2600k for almost 5 years before I replaced it in favor of the H115i and a Core i7-6800k.

    If you're getting a Core i7-8700k then I suggest looking at something that's a step up from the H7 and Hyper 212. Those things run hotter than they should. The Scythe Fuma is a really good pick if you can find one. If you're getting a Core i7-8700, keep in mind that it comes with a stock cooler. CPU temperatures can be somewhat controlled by paying attention to see if the CPU is being overvolted by the BIOS. The BIOS has been known to add more voltage than what's needed.

  • Why would both of my case fans stop working after installing a new graphics card?

    I did nothing more than pop out the old card and install the new card (gtx 1050) both of my case fans stopped working after powering up the computer with the new card in. Gpu and cpu fans work fine though.

    https://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu_list.ph...
    Core i7-2600 @ 3.40GHz score 8212
    This is technical details
    http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Core_i7/In...
    The speed is accomplished with 4 cores and 8 threads, and not all software uses all of it.
    The HD 2000 integrated graphics is not particularly good in gaming or editing the graphics in videos.
    The question is about the rest of your computer capability to accept a graphics card if the issue is in gaming or video editing.
    The issue can be internet speed not very dependent on CPU
    It can be in a shortage of ram.
    It can be in hard drive I/O that a solid state drive may help.

    You have stated nothing about your computer other than a still competent CPU.
    What is the brand and full model number, or the details if a custom build?
    If you do not know what you have, you are not computer knowledgeable enough to upgrade it, and a new computer may be even slower if you do not know what to buy.

    What is slow about it?
