    What VPS do you use?

    I know Kyle said he doesn't have one... but here is mine for Digital Ocean if you want. It gives you a $10 credit too.

    What VPS do you use?

    DigitalOcean. I have three VMs(two Apache, one Percona MySQL) with them. No issues... I've been with them for two years or so.

    AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.10.2

    My xfire 290x setup has been pretty good with these. I get some weirdness in multiplayer sometimes but that's about it, haven't really experienced it in campaign. Water starts flickering... next thing you know my fps drops from 70-90(freesync) down to 40s. No rhyme or reason... it usually...

    AMD Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.8.3

    Hmm... I'll have to check the xbox app issue. I was playing BF1 beta last night with the new drivers/DX11 and it was running beautifully... 2560x1440 ultra at a constant 70-110 fps(freesync). Then all of a sudden out of nowhere it would dip into the 30-40s for a few minutes and then magically...

    Warm ? 4TB 2.5" (15mm) $139.88 @ amazon

    So tempting... I have 18 bays free in the front of my Dell 720xd hypervisor. And I of course just bought an 8 3TB WD Reds to fill my additional external enclosure connected to it. Decisions... decisions...

    I'm using my XFX R9 290 DD with a Kraken G10 and a Corsair H55, am I missing anything?

    I have a G10 and an H55 running on one of my 290(x)'s... did not need a copper shim. Also running the gelid vrm kit. Good setup.

    State of AMD Drivers in 2016?

    I don't game nearly as much as I would like to anymore... I probably get in five hours a week or so now. With that said... lately I've just been playing Battlefront and Sniper Elite 2. I run both at 4k with my crossfired 290x setup. 60fps... no issues. I usually install the latest AMD...

    Replacement Battery

    I cheaped out and ordered a $35 battery for my 2010 MBP 15" I use at home after the OEM basically exploded and pushed the trackpad up. Came with all the screw drivers and have had no issues with it. Only charges to 99%... but I still get 4-5hours off it. Which is about what I got with the OEM...

    Should I flash R9 290's bios

    If it unlocks... absolutely. I've been running an unlocked XFX Reference 290 as a 290x for over two years. And before that I ran a Sapphire 6950 as a 6970 for a few years. Usually there is a dual bios switch that you can still leave your stock bios intact.

    What is your Windows 10 bloatware removal tricks?

    Ditto. Seems to work rather well.

    Sharepoint Ideas

    Personally... I avoid it like the plague. Others in my organization use it for document collaboration/sharing though.
  12. S announced free membership today

    Especially since Amazon started charging me tax last week. :( Not sure if Jet has a physical presence in my state and will be required to or not... guess I'll find out when I place my first order.

    XFX 290X VRM cooling (DD compatible)

    Wow that's pretty sweet... wasn't aware of it. I used GELID vrm kit, NZXT Kraken G10, and some stick on vram heatsinks. Almost makes me want to transfer the GELID/NZXT setup to my MSI 290x and buy this one for my unlocked XFX 290x.

    Black screen of death

    With my 290x's... it was always the memory clock. I fought with it on and off forever... sometimes drivers would fix it and after a year it was constantly doing it. Finally I realized it was the memory. Now I actually have to run my crossfire setup at 1120mhz for the memory. Can't complain...
