    3090 wb

    I feel ya on the power limit. But the way I look at it is, I paid retail on launch day, I'm not chasing records and realistically, the in-game performance between this and the FTW3 is probably what? 2-3 frames at most if we're talking about keeping a good undervolt? Some days I still try and...

    I have the XC3 with active backplate from EK. When mining, junction temps stay at 72. Normal load it's something like 50C

    RTX 3090 [H] Owner's Official 3DMark Time Spy Leaderboard

    Damn all these folks with the FTW3U. Really sad sometimes I have the XC3 which is 2x8PCIE. Trying to score a 3x8PCIE but with these times....might just have to be happy with what I got :D

    Ekwb Nickel Plated 2080ti Block After 3 Months Of Use With EK Clear Cryofuel.

    While EK has tons of bad PR from previous things, I have seen most interactions and my own interactions have been very positive. You also have to remember that compared to every other watercooling vendor, EK outsells them probably 10x or more in terms of raw parts shipped/pieces used in builds...

    Aquacomputer Leakshield

    Nice. Yeah I'm going to have an interesting set-up since I run 2-3 pumps (MORA with a dual pump top, then with the addition of the ultitube+d5 next combo since I didn't/couldn't think of a way to cleanly integrate the standalone) to make sure that my pumps adjust accordingly to not go over the...

    I've got one on order to play around with. Hopefully it ships sooner than 6-7 weeks that I've been quoted.

    Nice! Slideshot breach loaders are some toxicity in PVP. I can easily just slay out with them and it just feels unfair. Granted, I was a breach loader user all the way back in D2Y1 when they were heavies and Fighting Lion but yeah. With the shotty and 120 nerf i have a feeling breach loaders are...

    X570 Crosshair VIII Dark Hero

    This is what I did after I flashed 3601 and couldn't boot since I didn't realize I couldn't restore profile. Pressed it on the back and I was good to go. A god send since at the time since I had all the buttons on the bottom blocked off by a radiator.

    X570 Crosshair VIII Dark Hero

    So I flashed the latest BIOS 3601. Everything seems fine. Though if you reset your bios using saved profiles you probably will not want to do that as I was unable to boot. Had to reset my BIOS and just re-configure it manually again to the same settings.

    I was the 2nd person to get it in my clan on the....5th run? It's so underwhelming it makes me sad. It needs like a slight range buff or more damage for the limited range it has.

    X570 Crosshair VIII Dark Hero

    Least your 5950x wasn't delivered by amazon in an envelope :D Thankfully the CPU wasn't knocked loose and the box was just slightly dented in the corner when I got mine.

    Is there something wrong with my 5950x?

    5950X cooling options, AIO vs Custom, and OC options.

    Definitely agree that the Arctic Liquid Freezer 360 is probably the way to go if you don't care for RGB and all that jazz. And of course the Arctic P12 fans themselves are no slouch and often touted as the budget version of the famed Noctua A12x25s.

    I'm not going to buy a GPU with a hash limiter

    This has always been my concern with mining over any of the other energy concerns. It's these huge dumps of cards into e-waste that can't be sold once the "next best mining card" comes out. E-waste is only an ever growing problem and while almost no government right now is investing in solving...

    5950X cooling options, AIO vs Custom, and OC options.

    I can chime in here as I've done both on my 5950x with the Dark Hero and an EVGA 3090. I had everything on AIOs before, my 5950x on a Corsair H150 and my 3090 was a a Hybrid XC3 3090 (360+240). While everything was great, there was and probably still is a huge problem with fan noise. On the...

    Destiny 2

    Calibration data can ONLY be done in playlists. So strikes, gambit, crucible. Combatants = PVE Guardians = PVP Make sure you have the lvl 22 season pass thingy as it makes the PVP part only like 13 kills? and the combatants part only like 30ish kills.

    Destiny 2

    For those of you that are into finishing masterworks. Go get the new sidearm one done. It's currently bugged? maybe in that it needs energy weapon kills to progress the final catalyst part. 700 to be exact. I just loaded into Shattered Throne with a subsistence gnawing hunger and went to town ez...

    Asus Dark Hero + 5950X Bios/PBO/Temps questions for non gaming PC

    I've yet to really do power limit tuning. I might cut down on my EDC as that's usually the culprit for massive heat.

    X570 Crosshair VIII Dark Hero

    I personally went with the 2x32GB TridenZ 3600C16 kit. Mostly because the internet said 3600CL16 was the sweet spot and the price difference between C18 and C16 was about 20-30 give or take. I don't do much memory OCing and I just run at DOCP/XMP. If you were dead set on OCing I'd do a bit more...

    AMD AGESA 1.2.0.1 BIOS Firmware Tested

    Newest ASUS Dark Hero bios update with the USB fix seems to be working. I didn't have constant USB drops but would only occassionally lose my HD60s+ where I'd just have to re-plug it in and it'd be fine again (something like once every 3 weeks)

    X570 Crosshair VIII Dark Hero

    Spending the $$$$$$$ on RAM to hit 2000 FLCK seems to be a fool's errand given how much problems I've seen with it. I seriously doubt anybody has it actually stable. It might be a bios issue but I would not spend the money now if your end goal is to have a fast and STABLE system. 3600 CL14 is...

    What? Hunters are extremely good in everything still. Titans IMHO are the ones that fall behind the most. Warlock > Hunter >> Titan

    Destiny 2

    Yeah I just wanted to be encouraging to folks, too often I see on other places that people lament how Trials is for the "sweatiest" and only "good" players will ever go flawless. I think in other game type modes that might be true but in Elim as long as you're at some decent level of skill then...

    Destiny 2

    I honestly wouldn't consider myself really "good" in Trials. My stats: https://destinytrialsreport.com/report/3/4611686018468150087 I'd say game sense/team synergy is way more important than pure gun skill. Though if you're the type who hates PVP, it's hard to stomach putting hours and hours...

    Destiny 2

    Went flawless for the first time on all 3 characters +1. Just proves to me that if there's at least worthwhile loot then the population will be high enough to actually get people in the playlist. Trials basically felt to me how it should feel (mostly easy games up to 5, hard games on 5/6/7)...

    Nope just RNG. This last reset I did I had zero bottom dollars on the way up. Previous one? 5-6 or so. Now about 1/4th into my 4th reset, nothing yet still.

    Destiny 2

    I'm not sure if it's my roll that's terrible but I do not like how Ancient feels at all. Similar to how I have a pretty good Igenous Hammer but I much prefer my Bottom Dollar due to feel/sound of the gun.

    Destiny 2

    It's kinda crazy that I want to go grind out DC weapons again now that we know sunsetting is gone (mainly for a usable WV and primarily my old god roll Retold). Something about retold's model and feel just resonate with me. Been playing way more Destiny 2 than I imagined after the announcement...

    Make sure you use the Gambit ghost for a chance at an extra legendary. I'm at ~37k total infamy this season and I have 12 so far. 1 usable for pvp.

    5900x, running hot

    Yeah for me it was an idle/low power crash. And it only happened after like...if I read my logs right, after about 11 hours of idling. Basically I turned my computer on during the day and just left it alone until I woke it up from sleep when I got back to it. But testing like just waiting an...

    5900x, running hot

    I have to say that I finally got my first WHEA crash after like...4 weeks of using my machine. So frustrating that it's hard/impossible to suss out instability without just waiting for it to happen. At least I can easily identify which core crashed and tweak it.

    Diablo II Resurrected: Offical Thread

    1. I definitely remember this. I got really lucky and had some insane craft that sold for hundreds of SoJs that then fueled the rest of my chars for a long time. (Remember when you could craft insane +2 class skill circlets/amulets/rings? Yeah.) I think in all my hours of farming I only saw one...

    Trials this week was sweaty AF on a terrible map. So glad I got a semi decent roll on my flawless. Yesterday night struggled to get another flawless and hit cheaters on game 7. While I'm used to it, definitely soured my team's morale. (Infinite heavy cheater, how is this not bannable/detectable...

    Cursor lags after sleep cycle/prolonged use 5950x

    I had similar issues on my Dark Hero but the latest bios fixed it all for me. Are you also using the latest chipset drivers from AMD directly? My system is quite similar to yours other than I run my GPU in the first x16 slot.
