    Question about fps below hz on a gsync compatible monitor

    I am looking to get a LG 27GL850 and looking at the compatibility list I see that it does 48-144Hz. Lets say I am running a game and am getting below 48fps..lets say 35fps. The variable refresh rate doesn't go that low, but it could do 2xfps as the refresh to get the same effect (70hz). Right...

    Looking at the Creality Lineup

    I'm looking at getting a printer under 500 and have been eyeing the Creality lineup. I'm not sure if it is just me, but they seem to have too many models and it is confusing trying to figure out the benefits of one over the other. I am looking at the Creality CR 20 Pro, Ender-3, and Ender-3...

    Are HGST drives now discontinued?

    I know that Western Digital had bought HGST a few years back, but there were still HGST branded drives being manufactured and sold. My NAS is getting a little full, so I did a search for HGST and all the links just return to Western Digital. Are HGST drives no longer being made?

    Games not going fullscreen

    I am having an issue where BF1 and now For Honor will not go full screen. I can do borderless window, but it refuses to go full screen. This just started without any driver update. I went ahead and updated my drivers and it still didn't fix it. Alt+Enter didn't fix it either. I have a 1070. Has...

    I have been running the machine in my sig below for quite a while @ 1440p. I am running BF1 at a mix of high and medium to maintain a smooth playing experience.

    Are display resolutions outpacing video cards?

    It seems that in the past year or so there has been a big push for high resolutions display to 4K and beyond. Now that people are using 4K, 5K, or even higher resolutions, how are games going to be able to play at acceptable frame rates on these things? I feel like video card performance has...

    Put a koolance block on my 290x

    I got a XFX 290 on release day and unlocked it to a 290x. I decided a couple of weeks later to try my hand at water cooling. Temps went from 93c load (stock speed) to 46c load (overclocked). Just wanted to spread my cool story bro moment. Also a tip for anyone that gets the block, I think...

    GPU thermal paste question

    I am going to mount my water block on my 290 tonight and have a question about that. I know with a CPU you only need to put in the center and let the pressure spread the paste over the IHS (with the chip only being in the center of the spreader). The GPU chip does not have a IHS, though. So...

    Is my 4770k a dud?

    I tried for the first time overclocking my 4770k. The last processor I have overclocked was a Q6600, so all these new settings and voltages are unfamiliar to me. There seem to be so many now. I was looking at this guide:

    Aftermarket cooler question

    I know galaxy, gigabyte, msi, etc put custom coolers on their cards, but I couldn't find anywhere to buy just the coolers themselves. From looking around it doesn't look like there is much offering in the aftermarket GPU cooling realm other than what you get on your card when you purchase it. I...

    Who is the XFX rep here?

    I can't remember the name of the XFX rep that is on the forums here. My video card has spading out and artifacting hard. It started about a week ago and has become progressively worse. I created a ticket, but I wanted to give a heads up to him as well.

    Lion sharing issues

    I find it overly difficult to share between Lion and Windows 7. First of all, it is a known issue that you get an invalid password when trying to setup a user account to a shared folder on Lion.

    I upgraded to Lion today and noticed my mac is pretty hot. I will just be web browsing and my MBP will be at 76C. Anyone else notice a heat increase with lion? Edit: Actually it looks like it was so hot because it was indexing all the stuff for spotlight. After it finished, it cooled back down.

    Just got my first mechanical

    I got this in today and I am impressed with how it feels. I got it in the brown switch as I didn't really like how much pressure it took on my friend's G6v2. I also didn't want the clickyness of the blues for annoyance factor on skype. The free keycaps were a nice bonus :D
