    New to AMD. Just received my 7900XTX. Need software settings advice.

    CODMW (not 2) pulled 415 watts! Fans were loud. Averaged maybe 170-ish fps. I have no idea if that's good for 1440p everything maxed out. Is that slow?

    Trying to figure out the bios switch position. It came with the bios switch towards the rear of the card/away from the power connector. Isn't that the lower performance bios option? XFX 7900XTX Merc 310 Black

    New to AMD. Just received my 7900XTX. Need software settings advice.

    Battlefield Bad Company 2 isn't running that great with this card. I max just over 200fps and it frequently dips around 100fps. At the server menu it sits at 112fps. I think my 1080ti did much better. I'd like to keep it running at least 144 fps to match my monitor refresh rate.

    Just installed my 7900XTX a few minutes ago and the latest Adrenaline drivers. What settings should I have enabled for gaming in the software? Is the Anti-lag setting effective w/o negative consequences?

    Water block for XFX Merc 310 Black 7900XTX?

    I've only found blocks for reference 7900XTX cards coming soon, but no mention from any manufacturer, that I've found, of plans for water blocks for the XFX 7900XTX MERC310 Black Edition. Anybody know more than I? The 7900XTX XFX MERC310 Black cards seem to be popular.

    Upgrading to ROG Crosshair VIII Hero and 3900X. Any tips? Suggestions?

    Thanks. After watching Jayztwocents point out all of the wrong stock voltage settings on things I've never heard of not to mention the rest of the options I know nothing about--AMD--, a guide is something I really need.

    I'm going to install a new mobo and cpu, What's the best way to transfer my current digital license to the clean install to it? Should I create a Microsoft account to tie my current license to this account somehow? Update: I just linked my Product Key to my Microsoft Acct. So, after a clean...

    Heatkiller IV the best?

    Removing the back plate is a no go. Will mod as well.

    Heatkiller IV the best?

    Ordred the Optimus Foundation. I'm assuming the cpu back plate that comes with the mobo is used with it. Asus Crosshair Hero VIII

    Heatkiller IV the best?

    Yeah, the lack of a back plate with the Optimus leaves me apprehensive. Boards do bend over time when subject to heat and pressure.

    Monitor died. Need new 32 ish" for gaming and photo.

    My current monitor won't display any image, but the indicator light is on. Lights on, but nobody's home. Display and HDMI port the same. User interface adjustments also won't show. Now I have an excuse to upgrade my monitor. Prefer black blacks, but accurate colors and relatively low input lag...

    Heatkiller IV the best?

    Signature is just stiffer. I'm not aware of any flexing issues with any of the other non monolithic designs. Anybody heard? Can't decide which version of the Foundation I want. Raw copper or Pro-XE nickel. First world problems. Haha!

    Heatkiller IV the best?

    Just placed the order for the 3900X, mobo and NVME. now to find the HK IV Pro in stock somewhere...or Optimus--I'll have to compare The Optimus looks to be less restrictive and has same size fitting as my Raystorm Pro, but $179 for the Signature V2. Curious how the less expensive Foundation...

    Heatkiller IV the best?

    Considering going back to AMD. Likely a 3900X system and will have to buy another block unless there's an AMD adapter. Is the Heatkiller IV the best performing or close to it?

    OLED monitors out yet? Best black is black monitor for gaming AND photo editing?

    I didn't know this. How does that apply to what you see on the screen as a true representation of what the print will look like? The screen image should, as close as possible, mirror the details and information in the image itself.

    OLED monitors out yet? Best black is black monitor for gaming AND photo editing?

    I don't understand why IPS panels are used for photo if the contrast ratios are so bad. They say colors are superior, but you want accurate dark colors and black areas of the photo in addition to the other colors. I don't edit my photos at an angle (who does lol) on my VA monitor, so it's more...

    OLED monitors out yet? Best black is black monitor for gaming AND photo editing?

    The Samsung Q6, 7,8,9 have 1440p 120Hz above 55". I'm considering the Q6. It has contrast ratios far above the best pc monitor w/ VA panel and low input lag and the 55" isn't too expensive. Just bigger than I prefer.

    I can't find an in depth comparison between these two. Anybody know which is the better monitor for gaming and some photo work? Uniformity, VA glow, colors ect.

    OLED monitors out yet? Best black is black monitor for gaming AND photo editing?

    LG 32GK850G vs Samsung C32HG70. How does the LG compare to the Samsung? Both VA panels cost roughly the same. Is there something better in the same price range?

    OLED monitors out yet? Best black is black monitor for gaming AND photo editing?

    I'm a few years behind monitor tech, but still waiting for a monitor that has black levels that are actually black, excellent colors, at least 144hz and no edge light bleed or streaks of varying shades. Need good uniformity. Does such a 32"--ish monitor exist?

    3950X Who's waiting for it?

    Photo editing is my primary concern. I'm hoping those 4 cores and small speed bump are worth it. Gaming at 1440p, I'm not too concerned about.

    3950X Who's waiting for it?

    I was considering the 3900X or 3700X, but if the alleged performance is accurate, I may get this instead since the base boost is slightly higher than the 3900X--which may not mean anything since the 3900X rarely oc's to 4.6 if at all. Thoughts?

    Photo editing CPU. Intel still on top? 9900K vs 3900X

    I've read reviews showing the 9900K still on top with Adobe photoshop over 3900X, but does that hold true with Paintshop Pro? I can't find any reviews that include PSP. I also use Topaz Denoise. I have the itch to upgrade my 7700K to either the AMD 3700X/3900X or the 9900K. I game some at 1440p...
