    Two EVGA power supplies VS one 6900XT.... what is this?

    At idle no. Full load in this case is playing games at 1440p that aren't super demanding so the GPU is not maxed out. This is why I was able to run it on my 450W PSU just for a quick check. I'm suspecting it has to do with this Leadex platform they've used, which I know is very good normally...

    Two EVGA power supplies VS one 6900XT.... what is this?

    I'm aware of why coil whine typically occurs although those are good links, I'm more wondering why only this specific card causes it and also why the fans on the PSU ramp up to 100% blow dryer levels (the fan thing is what actually concerns me really, that means something is getting hot for...

    Two EVGA power supplies VS one 6900XT.... what is this?

    So I just picked up a 6900XT from a user on here, and I'm seeing very strange issues with my EVGA power supplies hooked up to this card. Note that I did some searching and a few others with high end 6000 series cards have had the similar experiences when combined with EVGA power supply coil...

    New World

    I picked a very low pop server for my second char, and after a few hours I logged out to go do something and when I came back the queue was at 1000+. Oh well, I'll play something else.

    New World

    I mean, for a company that runs half the web traffic on the planet I feel like they could probably have done a little better with this. Its not like its killing their budget to open up more/bigger servers at the start and then scale down afterwards if it is called for. The fact that this happens...

    Do you even want to buy a CPU right now?

    They didn't have any, the only choices when I got there was 11900k, 11700k, and 10850k. The 11700k was cheapest at $299 so I got that one. There isn't much difference anyways as long as it can play games. Truth be told I was really, really tempted to grab a 5950X because they had some in stock...

    Do you even want to buy a CPU right now?

    I picked up the 11700K and a Gigabyte Z590 UD, basically the lowest priced combo they had. Its working fine, and since I play at 3440x1440 the CPU being slower than my 5800X doesn't really matter. I have not OC'd a CPU since Ryzen came out, the few % difference is not worth the hassle IMO. My...

    Can you stop EVGA cards from shutting the fans off at idle?

    Well I figured out what the problem actually was, the fans are fine just the fan wires came out of the little clip so it was rattling against the fan blade when it started up. I pushed it back into the clip and now the rattle is gone. I think I blew the wire out of its holder with my datavac...

    Do you even want to buy a CPU right now?

    Run a negative offset on the voltage. Most of the 5000 series chips I've used can handle a -50mv offset with no issues and it drops temps drastically. Even a -25mv will drop your heat a bunch.

    Do you even want to buy a CPU right now?

    I like how snarky you guys are about this. I've built probably 50 Ryzen systems since those chips came out and haven't looked at intel a single time. The ONLY reason I was trying it this time is known issue with Ryzen boards that support PCIE 4.0 having audio issues - even the big box...

    3080 tuf repairs

    I looked it up, my EVGA card ends in a -KR not an -LR so it should not be an LHR card.

    3080 tuf repairs

    How do you tell if its a LHR card or not? My 3070 is pretty "old" and I'm pretty sure I bought it before LHR cards were even a thing. I don't mine but I'd like to take a swing at an AMD card so it might be worth it to sell.

    Do you even want to buy a CPU right now?

    So, if I were someone who absolutely had to buy an intel CPU today at microcenter, which one should I get? My choices are: - 10850K $379 - 11700K $299 - 11900K $449 My 5800X is slowly failing for reasons unknown and is now only stable at base clocks. I would just replace it, but I'm also...

    Can you stop EVGA cards from shutting the fans off at idle?

    I finally had time today to sit down and mess with it, I had to uninstall the Precision software and reinstall it with admin authority and it seems to work fine now. I have it set to run 20% at idle instead of stopping and now there is no rattling sounds every 20-30 seconds when the fans would...

    Can you stop EVGA cards from shutting the fans off at idle?

    The problem is it won't hold custom anything, let alone fans. It resets every time I switch the page or minimize it.

    Can you stop EVGA cards from shutting the fans off at idle?

    I have an EVGA 3070 with the XC3 cooler. Is this possible? I know they are designed to be off at idle up to a certain temp, and I can't find anything in the Precision software to stop this from happening. The fans on this thing rattle like a bastard when they spin up and its annoying as hell...

    NEW CPU Benchmark for Gamers and Overclockers 3-D Mark

    My desires kinda changed to just want the system to be quiet these days, but I did spend a lot of time and money on serious overclocking water cooled builds in the past. I agree SFF is a lot of fun though, I've been tempted to pick up some parts and build in one of the ITX cases I have sitting...

    Destiny 2

    So, I haven't come back to this game in a few years but from what I understand now, all the money I paid to the expansions in the past has been flushed down the toilet along with the content, and now I need to buy the game again or I can only have a few minutes of demo time on something I've...

    NEW CPU Benchmark for Gamers and Overclockers 3-D Mark

    I haven't bothered overclocking a CPU or GPU since Ryzen 1st gen came out. Maybe I'm just getting old lol, as long as it works I'm fine with it.

    What is an RX 560 4GB equivalent to?

    Ok thanks I'll look that card up and see the performance. Yeah I just can't bring myself to do it, but it should work for what I need right now anyways - presuming it still works I don't think its been plugged in for about 3-4 years.

    What is an RX 560 4GB equivalent to?

    I've had this thing collecting dust (literally) for a couple of years. I have no idea when I bought it, no PCI-E power connector so its probably not very fast. I tried to look at comparisons on google and I think its around a GTX 660? Maybe? Its an MSI 4GB OC model. I wanted to use it to set up...

    this guy is puting water on pc parts how does it still work??

    You can wash really dirty parts in distilled water with a toothbrush and let them dry extremely well and there will be no problem. I used to do it when I fixed/rebuilt my smoker buddies PC because it had that nasty tar on it. Like criccio said the only thing to avoid is tap water because of the...

    Weird issue with USB ports on Asus TUF Gaming X570

    I've had the X570 Tuf since it launched and I've had issues with USB devices but ONLY razer stuff that uses synapse software. Every 3rd or 4th time I boot up it won't find any of my devices until I unplug them. I always thought it was just razer being razer.

    Can you install a Ryzen 3600 into a powered on computer socket without damaging it?

    I know from experience a Core 2 Duo can run a LONG LONG time with no heatsink. Like, almost 5 years. Granted it runs at something like 125mhz under thermal throttling but hey. Probably this chip would be fine for a few minutes as well.

    How did this get under my radar?

    I loved this game when it came out, then there was the whole stink with Curt Schilling and the game support just evaporated. Even so, the game was very complete and had minimal bugs so I played through it a lot. I had absolutely no idea there was an improved/remastered version that came out. I...

    Cyberpunk 2077 Player Discussion Thread

    You have to hit them directly, and the aim is.... wonky. And also very short range. The hit detection is like trying to play call of duty in 1999 over dial up. Also, sometimes it makes the launching sound but never actually shot anything soooo... clearly a top AAA title.

    I'm kind of irritated, I've been playing on very hard for a while because I read that you get more XP the higher the difficulty, but I guess that was a lie. I just recorded the XP from kills and a mission the same way for all 4 difficulties, and of course the XP was exactly the same.
