    ASUS RTX 3080 TUF 10GB LHR - unpleasant RMA experience.

    I have an ASUS 3090 TUF and it behaves like your card so no. The funny thing though is I wouldn't have known about it if a friend of mine hadn't insisted on making me try his miner app. I have no found any other way to get the memory hot enough to get the fan speed to ramp up noticeably. Which...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    "Quiet", "inaudible"... those are subjective terms. Some of us will hear the fan and be bothered by it. My PC case is actually in a separate room (long-ish cable run) vs the one where I am sitting behind the monitor, so there is zero source of noise coming from inside that room (other than the...

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    Yea that and lack of VRR make me never use BFI in practice on my CX. But like the guy above said it's optional and more options is always good as long as they are of use to some.

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    You can do whatever you want. But OLED tech really shines in dark rooms (HDR content is also mastered in dark rooms with a target of around 100 nits average, similar to SDR movies). Otherwise the true blacks and infinite contrast won't do anything vs a good LCD because of how our eyes work. Of...

    Battlefield 2042

    I thought BF1 and BF V were fantastic, especially the latter with infantry combat that feels amazing (very smooth and natural movement system combined with solid gunplay). My problem is I'm not really a fan of those eras (though I like WW2 planes but I do that in VR with IL-2 Sturmovik already)...

    Battlefield 2042

    I don't know why I let people convince me that the beta was an early build or w/e. None of it made any sense. But I was in the middle of a slow and painful breakup and I really wanted a new BF game to go crazy in. I didn't lose faith after the beta, but I sure did with the full game. Doesn't...

    LG 48CX

    Ok, you mean the secret menu for which you need a different remote or an Android phone with an app. Well I don't have any of that so I'm out of luck right now. Not a big deal anyway but thanks for the info.

    There is no powered on time information on EU sets like mine, IDK why... But with a bit of math and knowing the big pixel refresh runs every 2k hours I know I'm getting close to 5k hours now (and yes it looks perfect, but 20 OLED light in a dark room).

    HDD Power on time 3068 days...

    Looks completely fine! And the benchmarks too. I have a lot of old drives, overall I've rarely had any failures and almost always the failures started with bad sectors and happened within the warranty period aka they showed up really fast on brand new drives.

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    Yea, I like glossy but even in my dark room I've still had to cover a lot of LEDs from various devices (including surround speakers) because the reflections on my CX were pissing me off in dark scenes.

    Battlefield 2042

    BF single player always seems to get a lot of hate but it's not actually that bad. It's usually at least decent and pretty cinematic. I did like BF3's a lot too. It felt really satisfying with a great diversity of missions and locations, even some vehicle action.

    Nvidia’s new G-Sync monitors let you switch between 1440p and 1080p

    Originally the g-sync module had no scaler at all so you were forced to rely on GPU scaling (not necessarily a bad thing, GPUs are fast). So I think you may right that this is just an evolution of the module which may be a good or a bad thing eventually, I can't tell yet.

    Battlefield 2042

    I can't be as enthusiastic as he is but there is a lot that I like about the game. But it's just horribly messy and broken overall and was released way too soon and at the worst time possible for an unfinished game (right before devs go on their regular vacation). But for example I love the...

    Very useful info thank you. I was able to find the same one on amazon EU so this goes right in my cart.

    I played like that for a few months when I was stuck with my 1080 ti. IMO it looks quite good in games, the softness isn't horrible, it's pretty clean looking. On the desktop I don't remember, I always just used 4k.
