    Phasmophobia Get some buddies and get your spook on. It's probably the funnest co-op game I've played in a long time. And god damn does it catch you off guard.

    Anyone else play this? Don't think I can really explain it better than the Steam store page, but this game is pimp as fuck and has all but consumed my last couple weeks of game time. Basic premise almost reminds me a bit of Rogue Legacy, except it utterly outclasses it in nearly every way...

    VZ S3 bootloader unlocked Well this kind of came out of nowhere... so I guess you won't need to wait several precious seconds any more for the kexec exploit to work its magic, the bootloader is now seemingly unlocked. This will probably help...

    Crysis 3 tech trailer

    They'll have a higher quality version up later, apparently. Tesselation is obviously more intelligent / put to better use than Crysis 2, this is probably a no brainer considering how DX11 there was blatantly rushed out the door. Control over it is...

    sys_fan can't handle haf case fan?

    I have 2 of them feeding off one pwr_fan connection ok but my 3rd and final has nowhere else to go but sys_fan. It looks like it's trying to spin but can't quite make it. Should I only expect the sys_fan plug to drive so much? The other connector manages. Guess I'll move it to the psu.

    4850 fan seems to be dying This motherfucker right here seems to be having trouble. It's all cleaned out, but the fan mysteriously stops working every so often before coming back to life. It's not a software problem as this will happen if it just sits...

    Do you still need to run driver cleaner on Vista?

    I was pretty sure ATI directly commented that no, you don't really need to do all that shit any more, but I can't seem to find it. Confirm / deny?

    USB wireless network adapter that plays nice with Windows 7?

    I just built a new computer for my parents and the ancient pile of shit they had has no Vista drivers and is not even supported by the manufacturer any more. If it's not obvious enough, I used Windows 7 (64 bit) for the time being. Needless to say, I need a new adapter so they can get their...

    x1950xtx doesn't feel like switching clock speeds over when it hits 3d

    or is a windowed 3d app not good enough to force it over? it insists on running 500/1100 instead of 650/2000 when I start a game. the stupid service is running, but it doesn't matter. if i try to kill it and force it to those clocks myself, locks up.

    SATA to IDE?

    My friend has a terrible motherboard who he got from someone else. He just bought a new HD but the MB doesn't see his new SATA drive at all. His old IDE ones are fine. Shoddy work around, but probably cheaper than a new MB, is there a converter from SATA to IDE?

    ATI tray tools problem

    Audigy 2 does not show up in device manager

    No PCI Audio Devices or anything show up and despite reseating it, it does not come up as new hardware found or anything. It's simply as it doesn't exist. I've tried a repair install of windows. Nothing. Here's the kicker, it worked fine until I swapped out my x1900xt for a replacement...

    Audigy 2 problems, it "vanished"

    So I finally got a video card after my x1900xt died, throw it in, all is well. Wiped, cleaned, and reinstalled ATI drivers. I go and get my headset and plug it in. But alas, there is no sound. I decided I might as well wipe the audigy drivers while I was at it and reinstall, but it claims it...

    A slight scare, x1900xt oh geez

    So the other day, I decide after a rousing session of oblivion (cut short by a crash :rolleyes: ) that it is COD2 time. After a quick romp there, I quit to join another server through xfire. The second the game starts, monitor goes black and it does its little sizzle like you just clicked it...

    Audigy2 feels like not being detected

    After my latest reformat, my Audigy 2 decided to go invisible and start not getting detected. The drivers for it said they cant find any creative stuff, and closed itself. Doesnt show up in the device manager. Worked perfect before this format... any ideas?

    Videocard slot question

    does it matter what pci-e slot i use? 2 pci slots next to the pci-e slot, one which my audigy needs to use. my x1900xt takes up the pci-e slot and a pci slot next to it, leaving one slot left for the sound card, both cards will be very close and the x1900xt wont have much room to breathe. would...

    I just scared myself...

    I picked up a cheap-o 9600xt for BF2 (which does a fantastic job, 50+ fps with most stuff on medium, good enough for me) and I was messing around with overdrive and looking at how it would increase my fps by a few. I've dicked around with my GF4 a bit and figured I knew enough. So I got...
