    What Z690 board are you eyeing?

    Pretty useless video since it is about three generations ago, seems that in teh Z690 era Asucks has dropped the ball, all manufacturers have sorted their issues with BIOS updates, except Asucks:

    What Z690 board are you eyeing?

    Gigabyte motherboards are perfectly fine motherboards. See you have it in for them because of their PSU fiasco, which was indeed handled poorly. Though you cannot conclude that the mainboards are bad too. That is a completely uninformed statement. The PSU's are just branded Gigabyte and they...

    Will never buy an Intel CPU again.

    AMD cannot sell you DDR4/5 either, you do know that memory is supplied by other companies? Everything Intel is selling at the moment, you are able to get.

    older games, even from just a few years ago, don't run on alder lake. even with e-cores disabled.

    No, I wasn't using IGP, I used my RTX3080. You never mentioned you were using the IGP. While you can use it for gaming in dire needs, the IGP isn't very good. Especially for a game such as Fallen Order. Conclusion is, the CPU isn't the issue, it works fine with the game you mentioned. You just...

    older games, even from just a few years ago, don't run on alder lake. even with e-cores disabled.

    Just tested Fallen Order on my W10 system with all cores enabled (12700K) in BIOS on a Gigabyte Z690 UD DDR4 mainboard without the fixed BIOS for games, so no game compatibility on and no Windows compatibility mode either. Starts fine here, so the problem is PEBKAC it seems.

    Sorry, didn't register here, then it should be the CPU. It happens very, very rarely, but seems you "won" the lottery on this one... Good thing you have warranty.

    Help! New Z690 Build - No Post / video output

    Probably the CPU socket on the mainboard, CPU's almost never break down. Can't believe that is the case here.

    LHR for current gen cards are a horrible idea

    That is true, but still isn't the issue. Software shouldn't be able to break hardware, especially current GPU's as they have all kinds of protections implemented. EVGA has made an official statement that it was their manufacturing that failed.

    LHR for current gen cards are a horrible idea

    New World just exposes manufacturing issues. Cards that are built correctly, do not have issues in these cases. The cards that broke down seem to only be in the hundreds, that could have happened on other games as well. These messages go viral immediately, that is a problem of the internet and...

    Oculus Quest 2

    You could still play the games offline on the Quest 2 as well. Hence my remark to an extent. So, Steam would practically be the same, except for games that run their own servers for online play.

    While it is annoying, this holds up for every platform. Xbox, Playstation, Nintendo Network even Steam to an extent. Not a Quest 2 exclusive problem.

    You are deflecting by not going into anything concretely on points you made that I responded to . That is enough proof that you are not objective here and your arguments can be disregarded.

    new to VR and looking for purchase recommendations

    You are obviously trolling here. The Quest is a complete package, you can start right from the bat, even without using a PC. If you have a PC, you have to turn on Air Link and you can play PCVR, that is it. No need to spend a lot of time on it. With a G2 you do not even have an option to go...

    Oculus Quest 2

    You have to choose desktop from the overlay menu and then just use the controllers to control your PC and launch it from there. VR takes some getting used to because it isn't integrated into Windows yet. Once you get the hang of it, it will be easy enough though. If you think the Oculus is...

    Samsung and AMD = Quest type product?

    The bold text is the thing what counts. In the end the hardware doesn't mean anything, it is all about how things are perceived in a game. It is downright impressive. So, in all reality, you are confirming what was said in the text you quoted.

    Do you overclock your gpus? Edit fixed gramar

    Sorry, forgot to mention, I use MSI afterburner, it sets the right curve as well for the other clockspeeds as well. Just default BIOS, not going to mess around with that. I guess you could get more out of it if you manually tweak all ranges, but that is not something I want to spend my time on...

    Do you overclock your gpus? Edit fixed gramar

    I undervolted my Zotac 3080, which wasn't done in a day, but after a couple of days got the right setting. The trick is, do not undervolt as low as you think you can. Every bit counts, which might not be 100s of mV's, but every little step is a step which brings you extra fps. Thought I had...

    That is why undervolting is the new overclocking! But no one seems to be aware of this in this thread ;)

    Do you overclock your gpus? Edit fixed gramar

    Undervolting is way more effective on most cards, overclocking will trigger the power limit way too much, with undervolting you will see that way less and that is what counts. When the card really needs to churn out the most fps, you normally run into the power limit.

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

    Still is tricky, doesn't drain all caps on all boards, just not worth the risk. If a capacitor is drain before the chain of the board you are washing is up, the it will still hold a charge. Just do not use water to be sure.

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

    If there are capacitors on a board which has been powered on recently, it can still damage the board. Those are short term batteries in essence. Most boards in PC's have capacitors. So, do not use water ever to be sure, just use alcohol.

    The state of VR technology

    Maybe a daft question, but what does BFI stand for? Searched for it on Google, but no real answer to be found there. Maybe state it unabbreviated once and after that write it down abbreviated? Makes it a more open conversation like that ;)

    Oculus Quest 2

    Microwave doesn't interfere with the 5GHz band and even in an apartment, shouldn't be hit with too much interference on 5GHz as it doesn't reach too far. Though switching channels can help with the closer by 5GHz networks, to avoid those. Just use a Wi-Fi analyzer and you know what channel to use.

    Are you using the 5GHz band? If no, that is your solution.

    What was your 1st 3D video card ?

    I bought the very first Voodoo 3D Monster card at a for me at 16 years old insanely high price of 300 guilders back then. I did love the hell out of the card, was such a revolutionary piece of tech! If I only knew I would buy a €900 RTX 3080 card last December back then haha!

    What's the truthful reason(s) for the GPU shortage?

    I totally agree with you. I bought my 3080 at €930 in the end of November, before mining was the reason people bought up cards. That already was €150 above MSRP for my card. Later that got way worse of course, and mining did play a big part in the later rise of prices. But it is clear that even...

    Thanks for the answer, it was too obvious in the end haha. I as good as gave the answer in my question, through sideloading the patch meant it was patched. So uninstalling and reinstalling is the solution. Sometimes the answer is right in front of you ;) If you are really only using it with...

    Oculus Quest 2

    Did you do anything to uninstall/remove the side loaded version? The thing that I do not understand in your comment is, that you bought the VD in the Oculus app. If you ran the sideloaded version, you already purchased it, as you have had to, the sideloaded thing is only a patch. Or did you...
