New system built - need your advice plz

Hello,

I've built my gaming rig a day ago and now I'm having troubles.. I'm posting this thread hoping if you can share your insights.

I believe I've done all assemblies correctly, however, I hear a loud fan like noise .. and I believe it's from my GPU - gigabyte hd 6850 windforce, though it works well. Is there anyway I can reduce the noise? Or do you think maybe the noise coming from another part?

As well, my ethernet connection is keeps disconnected , especially when I just turn on the pc.. Is it possible that my router is broke or do I have defective Network card? the router is about 4~5 years old. My laptop sometimes has that problem too.

Lastly, could you advise how to maintain the newly built pc? like do you think it's a good idea to use CCleaner or perform disk cleaner, etc? I'm using Avast free. Is there any good for free (I'm planning to subscribe kaspersky later on..)

Thanks guys! Cheers

  1. You dont have to subscribe to anti virus. Use Microsoft Security Essentials. It is free to download and us, doesnt hog system resources, and works great. I have run it on 5 pc's in my house for 3 years and never had a problem.
    As far as the noise..some graphic card fans are quite noisy. i'm not familiar with the Catylyst Control center...but look to see if there is a way to adjust fan speed
  2. if gigabyte had made the 6850 the same whay they made the 7970 this chart says that gigabytes gpu is the loudest
  3. I think 7970 will be better

  4. T.T so.. i can't fix this noise now.. And do you guys use CCleaner or something liek that regularly? Would that kinda program affect my computer bad or good? Advice plz! cheers

    It's good to use CCleaner regularly, as well as virus/spyware scanners and a disk defragmenter (if you're on an oldschool harddrive and not an SSD).
