    PS5 SSD Installation Warning/Advice/Very Soft Screw

    While the PS5 SSD installation : https://www.playstation.com/en-us/support/hardware/ps5-install-m2-ssd/ is a simple procedure for almost anyone especially folks here at H, keep in mind the inner SSD screw is made of butter and will strip very very very easily. I ended up stripping a good bunch...

    Recent Samsung RMA Experience/G70A Issue ?

    Anyone RMA'd a Samsung monitor recently? My G70A 28" started developing a random red line across the screen in the middle (first time had that happen to a monitor, very disappointed). Since it's out of the 15 day return window all they are offering is to send it to their NJ service center here...

    AMD cards actual power consumption/Kill a watt accuracy?

    This is actually a dual question: how far off is AMD's wattman reported power consumption from actuals (I understand NV is pretty accurate). Also how accurate are the kill-a-watt P3 meters over 1 KW? Reason I ask are the following observations (using a Corsair RMX 850W for the 3090 and the EVGA...

    Possible to install different nv driver per card?

    Is it possible to install a different nv driver for different cards on the same system? Managed to snag an initial batch 3060 and wanted to see if I can run the 470.05 driver on that card only? Any experiences?

    PSA: High CPU clocks/power consumption on idle on Ryzen CPUs caused by Windows Image Acquisition (WIA service)

    HP SFF VIPOUTLET.COM

    Very similar to a top rated deal I posted a few months back, but now with a 3600 guaranteed. No brainer for < 300 with the 4th of July code on the site (the actual specs are much better than the link may suggest, walmart's liquidation arm so no concerns about returns if you don't get what's on...

    Very high CCD1 temp readings?

    On the X570 Tuf Pro and 5900X with just PBO enabled (disabled also makes no difference), CC1 is idling in the mid 60s...sometimes on reboot it will shoot down to 40s like CCD2 and as expected but mostly just stays in 60-70 range.

    3090 FE or 3090 FTW3

    Have a new 3090 FTW3 coming in today. Was thinking of using both my 3090 FE and this for mining but luckily managed to get a RX6800 at MSRP as well so going to put that in my secondary rig (the thought of two 3090s is tempting but will make my office a furnace in peak summer). Which one should...

    H100i Pro will not sit flush

    Just got a H100i pro replacement from corsair for my H100i whose fans had started to give out but for some reason no matter how hard I try I cannot get the base to have good contact with the CPU, it barely touches and the processor heats up to 90c just idling. Reinstalled the retention plate...

    GBT X99 UD3P Motherboard Sleep Bug?

    Have been using the GBT X99 UD3P Mobo with a 5820k oc'd stable to 4.2 over the past month or so, I have noticed that memory performance seems to decrease every time I wake from sleep and sometimes wake from sleep just fails. This is because the NB/Cache frequency gets fixed to 2.4 Ghz on resume...

    355.60 feedback

    The new geforce 355.60 drivers are causing my system to lockup for 2-3 secs with a driver crash and then the driver resets to a max gpu clock of 540 Mhz that will not go back to default until a restart. Since I just built this system I thought it was OC related but this happens with both the...
