    Official PS5 Thread

    Not sure to be honest. I got the same heat sink as well on order....glad to hear it fits good. I put my first NVME in my new PC build about two months ago, did not realize how small those drives are dimensionally.

    I have a 1tb 980 pro on the way, a 2tb was just a hair too expensive for me. I figured with that and a external for ps4 games...and I believe there is the abillity to transfer easily from external to internal for ps5, I think I have a decent amount to get me started.

    Forza Horizon 5 (Mexico)

    Finishing up the main races, moved my difficulty up to Pro...Unbeatable is a bit too tough, but doable with proper setup vehicles, some patience, and a hint of luck. To me seems there are a handful of vehicles that will stomp over all the races with ease, so using the variety of the +500 cars...

    Forza Horizon 5 (Mexico)

    I just bought the premium edition, plan to get through the solo stuff. Always enjoyed the Forza Horizons but never have owned one of the games, and have not had an XBOX past the 360. Playing on PC w/DS4 controller (wireless), extremely low lag input....couldn't tell from console/controller...

    Ghost of Tsushima (PS exclusive)

    Platinum'd the game, had over 50 hours in it. Finished the Iki Expansion. I thought the expansion was a great change of pace to the main, and you got some cool abilities, would make some individuals want to NG+ the game, the scenery was beautiful. I 100% the iki trophies as well.

    How much do you get out of Videogames today?

    I enjoy iRacing for about an hour a day or so, then I still like to play RPG's and SP Story Games. I use to play online MP shooters but as I get older, I have lost the edge and do not enjoy trying to "git gud" and spending hundreds of hours. I have to play games that I can break up into short...

    Checking in with my Ender3 pro

    Acceleration issues I haven't noticed. I will try to reduce speed to 90% and see if I get same results. the failure always appears to be offsetting the same direction (towards the back the printer) . I will check for square. The printer has been in service from 4/19. I will definitely check...

    Checking in with my Ender3 pro

    I have developed a serious y-axis layer offset. it is extremely random, but does happen and just happens on a single layer. sometimes the layer offset is .5mm over or 2.5 mm over. The belt is tight ( I feel ), the 3d code is good, cause I can get a solid print out of it in the past. the bed is...

    Ghost of Tsushima (PS exclusive)

    I got it, been playing it the last couple weeks. Really is a fun change of pace. Just got into ACT II maybe a few hours in, definitely ramped up the enemies, I like it. I am trying to go completionist as I go, so I have maybe 20 hours in it. You definitely need to do the side quests for the...

    TSMC to prioritize production of chips for cars, not your next graphics card

    True! when exiting my driveway/neighboorhood during ice/snow, I always turn off traction control. The limiting of the throttle would put me in ditches or into curbs. When I get on the main roads, I turn it back on.

    Is it fried?

    Hey Hamal, I think my Aorus 3080 xtreme does this, it will play games and then randomly screen goes blank, gpu fans 100%, a couple disconnect/reconnect noise, game still plays in background, have to hard reset. How long did your RMA process take? Thinking about sending mine in. I can...

    Tiny Tina's Wonderlands (Borderlands spinoff)

    Looks fun, played the hell out of BL3 with a friend on coop. BL2 played about half as much. Fun Games...weapons are a blast to try out. Looking forward to it, probably gonna get it on console, as BL3 was a good console experience.

    Nvidia New Crypto CMP 170HX Mining Monster Spotted

    Nothing It will likely just be the other way around...hacked lhr gpu's and mining cards for cryptominers...make sense, especially if the demand is greater than the supply of the mining cards.

    Horizon Zero Dawn

    I think this game serves very well as a cough/controller style of playing. It is honestly one of my top favorite games. I played it to full on a first go around, so I did not really want to replay it to finish collecting, but will plan to play it again before the new game comes out.

    Sign on to Twitter reminder, and then play the Playstation Direct app. you get put in a lottery so its not first come first serve. I got mine back in March. I played the PS direct a 1-2 dozen times before I secured one from their site.

    God of War is really fun, the world is so different, and really does not get boring. There is a lot of collectibles to gather, but gathering them doesnt feel painful. the story is great, the voice acting is superb. really good game. I am teetering on Tsushima...it sounds like its skeleton is...

    I am really enjoying my PS5, I have had every generation of Playstation, and am impressed. I just recently bought LoU 2 for $20 @ Best Buy and am now playing through that while we wait for new games to come out. Beat SpiderMan:MM and Rift Apart already, both great games. Looking forward to...

    Aorus 3080 Xtreme Rev 2.0 - DWM.exe Crash

    Figured I would update - I turned off the high performance clock setting in the NVIDIA 3D SETTINGS, have played Iracing 4-5 hours over the last two days and have not had one slip up. It appears my GPU resets are caused by certain games...and not all (Satisfactory, Witcher 3, Outer Worlds). I am...

    Springtime is coming for RAM (and Graphics Cards?) Consumers

    This is a very interesting angle, and I agree 100%, investors dont care about the people, the tech, the sale, they just care about the margin. Again very interesting to think on suing...curious if that would ever hold up in court. I have seen some rather large companies come up with stupid stuff...

    Aorus 3080 Xtreme Rev 2.0 - DWM.exe Crash

    Ok, finally Gigabyte had there registration services back up and running, got the GPU/MOBO registered. I ran some tests yesterday, played a few other games to see if I could get it to crash, I could not (Cities:Skyline, CyberPunk, Far Cry 5), while I did not hammer the games too long, I was...

    Aorus 3080 Xtreme Rev 2.0 - DWM.exe Crash

    Lost in Freight or lost in the returns. Been reading some GB stories about sitting in GB receiving for a week or two before they claim receipt, and then another 6-8 weeks for repairs...unsure if backlog or just missing items. I would rather exhaust anything I could do on my end before physically...

    Aorus 3080 Xtreme Rev 2.0 - DWM.exe Crash

    Doesn't seem to be, I moved to F6 bios with the switch on the card, assuming it is the "silent" bios, it lasted a tad longer on my game (satisfactory), but still did its GPU reset, game still on, audio still playing, GPU fans 100%. The only way I can play that game is with -150 mhz and 50% power...

    Aorus 3080 Xtreme Rev 2.0 - DWM.exe Crash

    Silly question: Are all the Gigabyte bios' stored within the AORUS Engine (downloaded within its software)? cause I cannot find any information about the bios versions on their awful website.

    Swapped PSU out, can get through Furmark on all tests...no issues. ran three separate 8-pin cables from PSU. Still have reset issue on the lighter graphical consumption games (satisfactory), GPU runs around 65%, I have limited FPS to 120, but there is something in the GPU MHZ spiking that...

    Aorus 3080 Xtreme Rev 2.0 - DWM.exe Crash

    Yeah I am thinking this is my issue...had thought it from the beginning but wanted to rule out other things. I tried to run Furmark with 50% GPU, the instant I hit 1080P stress the PSU would trip and reset power.

    OK, been playing around with this a bit. I finally upgraded the MOBO, RAM, NVMe and Fresh Windows 10 and Drivers. What I noticed, I can play older games with the power turned down below 50% and -150 hz in MSI Afterburner, I am talking hours and hours zero issues. I run 3dmark benchtesting with...

    Upgraded to the X570 Master

    Need to put in the Z590 I just got, finally got a CPU/RAM to put in it today in the mail. Put a Aorus 3080 in my existing HERO VII, but it was not happy and had periods of random blank screen/gpu fans 100% till I hard reset. I am hoping I have a smooth upgrade!

    Will give it a try. My UPS will show the voltage input, I will move it around so I can see the display and keep an eye on it. Everytime I have looked at it, it has had a strong 120-121 volts. Thanks! Went ahead and ordered a my cpu/ram/nvme to finish up my upgrade path.

Well I hadn't purchased a cpu/ram/cooler yet, and installed this GPU on my existing setup. I am currently plagued with the...

    Right to repair executive order

    This is good news! Dealerships have gained a reputation as Stealerships due to corporate policies and marginal requirements on sales. They have become so bloated, just like any other large mfg in any industry, when it could be a simple fix, but to make their "numbers" they will sell you a...
