    could use some help pinning down an issue - g-sync related?

    well wtf - so the issue happened again just now. This time, i tried the DP cable in all the GPU slots. no dice. So i unplugged the GPU DP cable, and replaced it with the original cable. Plugged that into the display and it's alive. Frustrating.

    could use some help pinning down an issue - g-sync related?

    i hadnt had any issue for a few days now, since Sunday. Had the issue recur tonight, unplugged the display port cable from video card and plugged it into all of the other ports on it. No dice. Starting to wonder if this is a video card issue. Gonna try a simple re-seat and see how often if at...

    could use some help pinning down an issue - g-sync related?

    ah hrrrrmmmm... the only thing not showing at the bottom right in the taskbar was nvidia geforce experience. It should have been loaded but was not. I guess i'll uninstall that whole suite, run a reg cleanup, and install again.

    could use some help pinning down an issue - g-sync related?

    Hi, thanks for the reply. I just tried a different displayport cable, the issue occurred first cold boot when i got home tonight. Except, this time, there was no artifact-ish horizontal lines at all. Just the black monitor then monitor no signal. This is clearly happening after the Loading...

    could use some help pinning down an issue - g-sync related?

    Sometimes, not all, but only when cold booting after bios screen goes awy and.. i think... after loading windows screen goes away during that transition i get horizontal artifact looking lines across a black screen, for maybe a few seconds and then the monitor says no input and just presents the...

    stress testing these days

    What do we use to stress test a CPU these days? I've got a fresh Win10pro install, and when i run prime95, using the blend test, i get an immediate win10 BSOD. System is otherwise stable. No overclocking at all, default bios values. Running i7 6700k, intel PCI-E M.2 SSD, and QVL RAM for this...

    overclocking MSI GTX1070 Gaming X

    soooooooo, what is a better stability test. furmark with lower clock but more overall card load, or unigen with more core clocks and less overall card load? i'm guessing there's no straight answer here.

    overclocking MSI GTX1070 Gaming X

    ahh ok, it's a give/take thing, with a finite limit! That's why in FurMark it shows limits: 1 power, 0 heat, 0 everything else i suppose

    overclocking MSI GTX1070 Gaming X

    hey folks, I'm taking the plunge and finally overclocking my GPU. All 'seems' well so far. I hit a wall on memory at +825mhz if i recall, without a GPU overclock.

    Beyerdynamic teases Custom Game and MMX300 headsets for CES

    i own the MMX-300, they are great with the exception of the 'notches' on the headband. They definitely need more 'click' to hold the given notch. Had to RMA mine a while back after... a year? to get repaired. Not too impressed, at this price point, that something to simple could be under engineered.

    Gigabyte z170x-gaming 7 m.2 pci-e install

    ok so what i've read is that i'll need to actually change the bios to NVME boot mode, and have the IRTS drivers handy... as in, on the same USB stick as the win10 install files? or is that only for windows 7? /confused.

    VGA cooling - EVGA ACX3.0 or MSI Twin Frozr VI?

    I voted MSI myself, giving them the benefit of the doubt. I'm really after which card to get, but wanted to keep the question to the cooler. TBH, i'm waffling between the 1070 and stepping up to a 1080. I've got a 970 now, which a guy at work wants. The difference between EVGA and MSI @ the...
