    Question For ASUS Strix 1070/1080 Owners

    Got a Strix 1070 OC installed yesterday and running just fine. Better than fine actually, the card hasn't gone over 64C and holds just under 2GHz Boost clocks in everything! Anyway I didn't like the "breathing" LEDs so I used the Aura software to set it to static. Now I swear the LED color...

    I normally don't care what anyone on Reddit says, however this is fairly compelling evidence that AMD should have put an 8 pin header on the cards: RX480 fails PCI-E specification Note this partially point back to a [H] post, though I couldn't figure out if they were the same person or people...

    Tried To Go Team Red

    First I tried a MSI R9 390 and it had bad coil whine anytime the GPU was loaded. Decided to go with a Strix R9 390 because I like the design and the card was almost the exact size I could fit into my case. Freaking loved the Strix design from the moment I pulled it out of the box. Got it...

    Do the EMI shields on Creative cards do anything?

    I picked up a Recon 3D for cheap on Amazon. I really like the card over the Xonar DG and X-Fi ExtremeGamer I also have, and the drivers work great. Only problem is that the is picking up feedback or interference from my GPU. Sounds like a static that seems to vary with GPU load or framerate...
