    Actually selling this exact monitor myself, good monitor and much less than I paid. The freesync range can be increased with CRU.

    CS:GO Receives 14,000 Negative Steam Reviews in a Single Day after Going Free to Play

    Honestly cheaters already ruined the game for the most part even before this update, cheat providers that have never been detected for the game's whole lifetime still exist to this day, but it is sure to get worse now. And I think Valve knows this, and instead of putting money into the game to...

    NVIDIA NDA & HardOCP - POLL

    I voted no, but it should be up to you.

    RTX 2080 - 2080 Ti - 2070 Pricing Revealed

    Hopefully this will be like GTX280/60, AMD is around corner with their cards, and Nvidia is forced to sharply drop prices, no way I'm buying at these prices.

    ASUS RTX 2080 Ti & 2080 on Amazon

    There are no reviews or even performance estimates and people are buying them? I'm concerned for my fellow man.

    PSU ECO Mode safe?

    Been using a seasonic with that feature for a while, never heard the fan come on, I think the fan on my unit responds to temperature rather than load, which would alleviate your concerns. I think it safe either way, it would somewhat depend on the temperature rating of the PSU, but most of the...

    Nvidia SIGGRAPH 2018 Livestream Starts at 4 P.M. PT

    Would be real scummy move on part of Nvidia not to provide a sample, as means of retaliation, and would only paint their already negative image only more so.

    A partial failure possible?

    I don't think pads (assuming you mean thermal pads) will solve your problem. If the inductor burned up, it should be somewhat obvious to the naked eye, it would require a replacement inductor.

    A partial failure possible?

    It would be towards the power connector under the cooler(just google gtx900 inductor failure or something). You should know used cards cost significantly less right now, so the card you buy will drop in value a lot as soon as you open the box, the upside of that Evga card is that it comes with...

    Turing based GPUs will carry a higher price than Pascal during the cryptocurrency craze

    I'm sure they will have games launching with the card, and maybe some games already out adding the ability to use RTX, otherwise it wouldn't be a selling point. I doubt performance will be much different form Titan V in games, that don't use RTX.

    A partial failure possible?

    Well, Gigabyte does have a 3 year warranty, unless that expired. Common failure among 9xx series cards was a burnt up inductor, something to consider, although I'm not sure if it would exhibit symptoms like yours. Unless you are waiting for the new gen, prices have come down a lot recently.

    Turing based GPUs will carry a higher price than Pascal during the cryptocurrency craze

    From today's presentation, seems to be completely new chips.

    A partial failure possible?

    Does indeed sound like the card failed, most likely the power delivery. You can try reducing power cap/voltage to see if that may stabilize it. Or if the core itself is unstable you can try raising the voltage, which 970 should allow.

    GeForce is going to be whatever cut down stuff is left, after they make the Quadros. :D
