    GPU clock confusion

    Got a new 5700 and its advertised at boost clock of 1750 but is very frequently going well over 1900 according to adrenaline and GPUZ. Is this just normal for these? I try to google it but just come up with a thousand threads about overclocking or flashing it to an XT.

    Haswell overclocking issues

    I have a 4670k with a z97a mobo and seem to have hit a brick wall with this setup at 4.6ghz. It wont boot under 1.35v but its stable at 1.35. The thing i dont get from reading around is that i should be running hot as fuck with that vcore and OC but i dont even break 70c under full load on air...

    Sbz+ dt770 vs virtual surround USB headsets

    I have the sbz and dt770 and a cheap pair of g430s but for positional audio in fps the g430 seems to do better. I don't think this should be the case is there an option in missing somewhere or am I expecting too much?

    One fps to rule them all?

    If you had to buy one current fps what would it be? Not a huge fps player but wasn't one current one. Leaning towards bf1 or overwatch just can't decide especially considering how different they are.
