    Amazon’s New World game is bricking GeForce RTX 3090 graphics cards

    I really think Nvidia changed the specs to the card makers at the last minute or something when they leaned how good the and cards where this round. It explains why they had to lower bost clocks, the bad caps, cards hitting the power limit and undervolting helping clocks

    FTW3 3090 active backplate comparison? EK, Barrow, Byski

    Did the ek on a xc3....would recommend going with anyone else....they give you no wiggle room and at least on the xc3 there's no screws around the bridge area to compress it enough without having to push down on the card hard enough I was afraid I was going to break the card

    Beware of Exploding Gigabyte PSU's being Dumped by Newegg in Forced Bundles

    Have the same mb been rock stable... mostly. I think older firmware overvolted the CPU at times I saw 1.55v at stock. A -v.15 offset fixed it and made it run cooler. However they must have changed something as the rebar bois made my -v offset unstable but stock vcore worked..but no matter what...

    Rack mount UPS for small home network

    in the long run you pay more with a cheaper ups...They all seem to kill the batteries faster then a good rackmount one for some reason and most have little of no control over things like battery cheeks ect

    man that brings back memories of when i built a chiller for my old amd think it was a 955 or something with around -15-20f loop temp was fun other then how much a pain in the ass it was to make it safe to run 24/7....yours looks a lot cleaner then my ice chest and old walk in freezer condensing...

    Do you overclock your gpus? Edit fixed gramar

    My rig is also dead quiet...yes it's overkill but it's both fun to do a loop and having 2x480 and 2x360 rads on my 3960 and 3090 the gpu runs at about 1950-2100 (power limited)at a whooping 40c load 100% dead quiet and worth it to me. Before I got the 3090 block the card would run at about 70c...

    3090 wb

    My only problem with the ek block and active backplate was how much a pain in the ass it was to get the bridge to line up right they give you 0 wiggle room to get it lined up. Had to wind up putting the card on the table and pressing down way harder then I would have liked to make it line up

    3090 wb

    Yeah that's what I went with gaming stays at about 40-43c card stays at about 1950mhz or so before it hits the power limit..... which sucks because it can hit 2100 on some games with a bit of under volting

    Blizzard/Activation being hit by the Perfect Storm. Will they survive?

    Why does it matter if they give 100% of the work to someone and let the other people play games ect all day? If they choose to stay and put up with that and not leave that's on them. A company should be able to dictate it's work to employees without omg this is not fair junk coming into pay

    I miss the days when cards didn't have vram on the back and mostly everyone used the reference pcb other then the ftw type cards...made picking a block a lot easier. Also seems like a lot less people even review water blocks nowadays vs the olden days (man I miss [H])... unless one wants to...
