    Gigabyte 3080 Thermal Pads are Garbage

    I started mining on my Gigabyte 3080 Aorus Master in my off hours recently and noticed the fans would hit 100% almost instantly with memory temps at 110C. Gaming thermals were actually decent, 70% fan speed and ~65C on the core. I checked around and it seemed to be a common complaint with all...

    Rainbow Six Series - Any news?

    Seems like it's been a while since Rainbow Six Vegas 2 was released, and it's still one of my favourite shooters for the 360. In the age of sequels that we live in I find it odd they haven't announced a new Rainbow Six title. Has anyone heard or read anything?

    Do ATI cards whine while folding?

    ATI folding folks, do your 4850/4870's whine while folding like their Nvidia counterparts? I just switched my main PC over to a Silverstone SG-03. The case is about 1/3 wire mesh allowing the whine from my 8800GTS to directly bore to the centre of my skull and I'm not sure if I can handle it...

    Xubuntu 8.04 + VMWARE Server 2 RC1 Issues

    BESL (pad) Mod question

    Abit IP35 Pro - Mosfet cooling question

    I had an Abit IP35 pro and Q6600 running prime95 stable at 400x8 but wanted to max out the FSB. I upped the FSB to 475x7, NB 1.33v and CPU at 1.45v, RAM at 2.2v since it's what Crucial recommends. When running Prime95 at the new frequency I hit a wall with the mosfet (PWM) temps. After 10...
