rebates! no such thing in Oz, we get ripped on everything - $200 for 16gb ram, the cpu you have is $360 here - and these are the cheap no frills outlets

edit: 76 degrees! that is way above "normal" check the max specs your cpu can take, but thats your problem right there - cpu will clock down before it shuts down, hence why you get the horizontal lines prior to shut down.

edit 2... 76C frrrrrk, lucky the CPU's shutdown - otherwise you would have fried it for sure. max temp of 1245v2 is 72C

we are traders and NZ dollars are different than US dollars, in terms of pricing and such.

either way to sunday, really sorry you don't have discounters down there. I kept running across a computer tech firm in AU/NZ that had prices that would make a Yank blush. Either way to sunday, we have to help @GaryD because he is reaping the world wind on this fiasco

This troubleshooting is more like breaking wind. Stinks.

Little late to this question

Hi,

I had a computer built for me:

Intel Core i5-3570 Quad Core 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) 4x256KB L2 6MB L3, Asus B75
LGA 1155 Micro ATX Motherboard, 8GB DDR3 1600MHz Memory, Seagate Momentus
Hybird 750GB 7200 RPM SATA Hard Drive, LG 22x SATA Dual Layer DVDRW, Asus GTX
650 Ti 1GB Video Card, Integrated Realtek ALC887 Audio, Integrated Gigabit Ethernet
Adapter, 4 USB 2.0 Ports, 2 USB 3.0 Ports
1 1,250.00 1,250.00T
1 Windows 7 Home Premium License and Media DVD 64 Bit 99.99 99.99T
1 Cyberpower 1500LCD Battery Back Up 199.99

I have had no problem, you might want to look into returning what you got and just build it
using the above, it came to $1,600 with shipping.

Good luck,

Rachel

PS The case is Fractal Design, Arc Midi R2 computer case, it is big with 3 fans and has 2 screens (one in front and below in back, so you can remove and
clean the dusk without having to open the case. I use 3 screens.

I could be wrong Rachel but i think Gary's Xeon is faster than that i5....

My goal when i had one built for me was to build it as up to date (with proven components) as possible to delay the inevitable obsolescence. My i5 that i'm typing this response on is already too slow as i've loaded it up with everything to keep my i7 clean...

I thought that's what Gary was trying to do as well, get a machine as up to date as possible...as cheaply as possible...with an SSD and some decent RAM.

Hi,

I had my computer built in July, so it might be out dated by now?
Yes, building it himself, would be less expensive.

The company that built my computer, knew I used it for day trading and I needed it to work fast and handle a lot of data etc.
What they built for me, has been great, no problems but I only use it for day trading.

I had mine built a year ago, it was out of date the day i bought it I'm sure.

Such is life when it comes to technology!

Hate to be the one to break the bad news, but the new iteration of CPU's are 2-3% faster (on a good day)... try not to lose sleep over it
