    Dremel or Similar Tool for Stripped T5 Torx Screw

    Modern GPU Stability Test?

    Hi guys - what do you use for stability testing on a GPU these days? I have heard Furmark is no longer en vogue...I've been using 3DMark looping but not sure if that's tough enough. Seeing some crashes in Fortnite with my 3090 Ti so it is driving me insane.
