    Looking for feedback: 6900xt vs 3080

    Alright, I give up. AMD is god, god cannot do any wrong. There are definitely NOT hundreds of threads on the AMD forum about the same exact problem. Its all in my head.

    Looking for feedback: 6900xt vs 3080

    Yeah, some are ok others just don't wanna run. Cryengine games are the worst as far as I know and this arch has had a rough time with that engine for a long time. Like I said, top tier AAA games run so smooth, its great for those. I play a lot of Cyberpunk and it runs like 30-40% faster than my...

    Looking for feedback: 6900xt vs 3080

    This is a well known problem, its been around since Vega launched. These are just the latest and greatest to be affected. If you set the clock speed manually the usage just goes down and then the vcore and memory clocks won't match up. Then you end up with an even more stuttery mess. Lets take a...

    Looking for feedback: 6900xt vs 3080

    I actually mostly quit playing Fallout 76 after I switched to this card. The performance at 1440p was abysmal. Another old game I like to play is Armored Warfare, but its on Cryengine and the frame rate is a slide show on this card while on the 3070 it was like 140+fps. Hell, my RX560 gets...

    Looking for feedback: 6900xt vs 3080

    3080 all the way. I gave up my 3070 when I picked up a 6900XT from the forum here and it was a bad choice. The card is great at high end games, but play anything a little older like revisiting titles you played in the past and it turns itself inside out trying to downclock to save power. Some...

    What Is Your Personal Favorite Video Card of All Time?

    The best gaming card I ever had was my Geforce 2 GTS. 32MB of Vram and AGP 4X, and it was the first time I could run games with 32 bit color instead of 16 bit. It was truly a literal game changer for me, I had so many hours of fun playing games with that thing.

    The Waylanders RPG

    I probably played it a bit and I literally remember nothing about it, even the name doesn't ring any bells. Might be for the best if you don't.

    5800X constant WHEA errors/blusescreen only in games

    Well all I can tell you is I went from 80C during games to around 66-68, it was immediately obvious and I checked because my fans didn't ramp up any more (I have them set at 50% until 80C). Previously even common desktop tasks like installing a program would ramp the fans way up. Right now I've...

    5800X constant WHEA errors/blusescreen only in games

    Good ideas. This was one of the first things I thought and went through the timings one by one, I did manually set VSOC, VDDP, etc etc. My oldest Gskill kit has been around since the days of the 6700K being the top dog and I have notes on its settings on multiple platforms. I have several other...

    5800X constant WHEA errors/blusescreen only in games

    Its not just FO76, it happens in every game I play for more than a few minutes. A little more background, this build has been together since January with zero problems. I do not overclock or do anything to it. Its been set on DOCP and thats the only BIOS tweak besides fan speeds that I did. I...

    5800X constant WHEA errors/blusescreen only in games

    So I've been having this problem for a few weeks now, not sure what exactly is happening here. This ONLY happens in games, this machine will run any stress test or benchmark for 20 hours straight with zero hiccups. If I try to play a game, in this instance the game is Fallout 76, it will blue...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.
