    Fallout 4

    Okay, here is what I'm learning. The game will crash 100% of the time unless I "Reset" the graphical settings and let it auto-detect. If I do that, and run in borderless windowed, it will launch. If I change any graphical setting though, it will start crashing. The problem with this is that it...

    Fallout 4

    I think that might have worked. Thanks. e: sigh, never mind, it's doing it again. Something to do with me changing the graphics settings. It seems like if I change something - anything - it'll work for a few times. But then it'll stop working, even if i don't change anything. Then I'll go back...

    Fallout 4

    Is there a known problem for immediately crashing to desktop after launch? R9 280. Windows 10. After hitting Play in the launcher, the screen will go black for a couple seconds, flicker a bit, then I'm back at desktop. Sometimes it will launch successfully, maybe 1 out of every 20 tries...

    Used MSI OC Genie, now the throttle is stuck

    On my new MSI board I enabled their OC Genie, which put me at 4.0 for my 4670K - right about where I wanted it. Problem is, now the ratio never throttles down at idle, so it's always running at 100x40. CPU-Z still has my multiplier listed as (8-40), it just never leaves x40, even when the...

    Mounting video cards vertically

    And you never noticed any sort of rise in temps from you graphics card or anything (assuming it has heat pipes and you had it mounted horizontally at one point)? Thanks, guys.

    Mounting video cards vertically

    I just purchased a SilverStone FT03 in where the video cards are mounted vertically. I was wondering if this caused any issues on cards with heat pipes - if the vertical orientation prohibited the conduction of the liquid. Any tests ran on this?

    FarCry 3 Mouse Sensitivity?

    I've had this problem for years - through various game, mice and drivers. It always seems to be to be with cross-platform games, or shoddy ports. I've taken it as developers just don't really care about mice anymore. Sometimes setting the in-game to 0 or 1 will make it playable. Sometimes I...

    Windows 7 - Upgrade or Full Version

    If you buy an OEM version (1 pack) will the license still work during reactivation if you change hardware? I'm hearing mixed answers. And since it seems MS made it so easy to work-around using the Upgrade version w/o having a prior OS installed, what's the difference between Upgrade retail and...

    How is PowerColor? Looking at the 6850.

    Okay, okay, you got me. Ordered. In the end that's only $5 more than I was ready to pay, and for a vastly faster card. Merry fuckin' christmas to Soy.

    How is PowerColor? Looking at the 6850.

    Wow, that is a good deal. The 5870 is a beast. Any idea as to how long that promo is going to last? I hate MIR, but that's hard to pass up.

    How is PowerColor? Looking at the 6850.

    So I'm ready to purchase a 6850 and I have been eying both the new Sapphire Toxic and the PowerColor PCS+ one. Both the exact same price with the same overclocks. Now, I've always been a huge fan of the Sapphire Vapor-X/Toxic cards - beefy overclocks with dead silent cooling. But I'm not that...

    Recommend overclock software

    Just picked up an EVGA 460, and it's been awhile since I've ran Nvidia. Unfortunately the Nvidia drivers are pretty bare bones and don't offer any performance adjustments. What do you guys recommend for doing this? Something simple would be preferable. I remember back in the day running...
