    1) Play Direwolf20 pack

    2) Fans go crazy

    3) Check CPU temp

    4) Find constant 70-75 C

    5) Freak out

    Anyone know how to "fix" this? I want at least lower than 65 please. And changing memory allocation in the launcher didn't work, I don't know why I thought it did.
    CPU is Intel i7 processor 3770 with the stock fan/cooler.

    I don't know optimal graphics card temp but right now mine is at 72....Nvidia gt630

    get a better cooler, stock intel fans are crap, especially for an i7-3770, and I would advise going for a gigabyte GPU with windforce cooling, it works as well as it says it does, and optimal temps are around the same last I checked. I would advise going to the computer section of off topic for further discussion

    Only the chunks around your original spawn point remain loaded.

    for clarity's sake, the spawn your compass points to is semi-loaded at all times (items despawn, but that's about it, crops don't grow, mobs don't move or spawn, and of course it doesn't render)

    Quote from JohnOptegrove

    If by that you mean yet another fork of Debian, sure.
    If I remember correctly, it's actually ubuntu, which is based off debian, so it's a fork of a fork of debian
    and let's not talk about linux in this thread to avoid an off-topic thread lock and, OP was asking about advice for windows and unlicensed OSes, not the specifics of which linux distros are based directly off of debian or a fork of debian, but it is true that the linux kernel will run on almost any device (I have an XP machine that now runs mint, and TF2 runs like a charm at low settings. 24 FPS)

    Mac OSx won't work with Windows file type. I remember that.
    linux will, I use it all the time for my small server and it can read NTFS just fine NTFileSystem is the windows filesystem that you claim OSX doesn't support, it does unless you are talking about programs. those won't work without a thing called WINE, which can run some windows programs, but I wouldn't advise you use it for gaming or anything intensive

    How do you have a warranty if your OS is unlicensed?
    probably a computer he got from a freind that still had the warrenty and the friend removed the license key

    As a matter of fact, is it illegal to update unlicensed OS?
    yes, you have to buy a valid copy of windows, we cannot help you with unlicensed products that are illegal, other than telling you that it is in fact illegal

    it will run VERY good. I have a gtx 780 and mc runs at about 450 fps average, trust me
    read the threads you are replying to and don't just reply to OP, as this has gotten to a completely different build than what you are talking about
    as for OP: I can't really say about ASUS, but personally I recomend asrock boards as they are usually pretty decent in terms of MOSFETs and chipsets, in addition to a BIOS with mouse support

    hm, this is wierd. have you tried reinstalling minecraft?
    have you tried actually lurking on this section of the forums to learn our solutions to various problems? [/sarcasm]
    and reinstalling MC has a very low chance of actually working for this problem

    Barnacles nerdgasm has a robo3d printer
    http://www.robo3dpri...fully-assembled
    looks good, that's another option, and I was just reminded that we might try to go for a mendel, as that's what the other school in the area has
    EDIT: mendel confirmed

    I've heard of Shapeways, but I'm more of a computer guy.
    I'm looking for a desktop 3D printer, not a service

    MakiBox is just $200 and seems to be quite good.
    looks decent, we might go for that, especially as one of them has a heated bed. (and the extruder is supported on both sides)
    EDIT: forgot to add that we want a dual extruder, it doesn't appear that the makibox has support for a dual extruder, as well as it using a bowden tube extruder, which a nearby school has had problems with in the past

    Our school has a 3D printer that we built, but seeing as it's down for maintinence more often than not, we were looking into getting a new printer, preferable with a build volume bigger than 10cm^2. We currently have a Printrbot Simple wooden, that we built ourselves, it's quite reliable when you can get it to actually extrude the filament. Our budget is around $1200 USD, and we would like to stick to a printrbot DIY kit if possible, but we can do other brands and prebuilts if needed (unlike PCs, 3D printer prebuilts are actually quite good, I've seen a few of them at maker faire NY) looking for suggestions on a good value printer, such as the old printrbot LC or the plus, and I can donate around 100 USD if needed, but would prefer to avoid that if possible

    You just got lucky. Most of the time, you'll be in spawn range but not in run-there-and-torch-it range
    I was heading up a vertical tunnel at the time, so I tried to move fast to avoid an ambush, then I noticed the dungeon at the top

    I found my first dungeon after stupidly forgeting about the shift key, and I think that mob spawners need to have less of an initial charge up when you first enter the 16 block range, as I was able to just bumrush in there and slam down 4 torches in the corners and it was done, with only one zombert in the center

    off-topic: apparently akinator decided you and icy were both pr0nstars, I was trying to beat it and it just decided you and him were "not for children" and declared himself the victor
