    Stabilizing 1T Command Rate?

    I just got my G.Skill Ripjaws 2x8 3600CL16 Samsung B-Die kit for my Ryzen 3600 and I am in a process of overclocking it. I am now down to CL14 timings @ 3600 and tightened secondaries and tertiaries (and apparently it is solid, still testing) but I absolutely have to have GearDown on. I would...

    If you are on a fence if you should buy new RAM now or later...

    ...I would probably suggest now because there has been a power failure at Samsung factory, again. Apparently not as bad as last time but you know how it usually goes with RAM manufacturers and price increases. https://en.yna.co.kr/view/AEN20191231007200315

    Displayport to HDMI adapters?

    I just ordered myself Oculus Rift + Touch Bundle and suddenly noticed that I have only one HDMI port in my graphics card and that is reserved for my Samsung TV that I use as a monitor. So question is, what is the cheapest option to convert one of my DP ports into HDMI? I know there are some...

    Elite Pro bit the dust. What new card?

    Sad thing happened, my X-Fi Elite Pro started to act wierd and crash my computer for no reason so I had to pull it out. It was such a great card that could do everything, from amateur studio work to just gaming and movie effects.So now I'm in a market for new soundcard. But I do have couple of...

    Upgrade to 290X from GTX770 2gb?

    Should I make this jump? 290X seems to amazing card, a Titan killer in some games and quite affordable too. The Asus Matrix ROG is about 350€ and Gigabyte Windforce 10€ more here in Finland. Not quite as good deal as in the states but still. GTX770 is still a great card and maxes out most games...

Even Geoff Keighley seems bit stunned by how ridiculous that is, and the guy is one of the biggest coprorate shills of the gaming world at the moment. :D No sir, I...

    Very low FPS after installing aftermarket cooler on GTX570

    I have a very serious problem. I just installed AC Twin Turbo II on my Palit GTX570 (only aftermarket cooler that fits this card without modding btw), and now my graphics card is not working properly. GPU usage during games is really low! I just started Serious Sam HD without Vsync and FPS was...

    Good upgrade from OC'd GTX 460?

    I am bored with my GTX 460, especially because it is starting to choke in Witcher 2 if I push the settings up. I have cancelled my original intention of upgrading to Sandy Bridge rig (got a new car instead and bulldozers are around the corned) and SLI's GTX460, so I guess that card needs to go...

    Unnaturally low CPU scores on 3dmark11 after changing mobo?

    I have a shocking problem. I resently switched my old MSI P35 mobo to EVGA 780i, due to SLI capability and much better overclocking headroom on quads, P35 is pathetic on those. Currently at 3.83Ghz, 450FSB that is. I am still in the stability testing (finally got those GLTVREF volts right and...

    TIM stained Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme? Cant get it off!

    I just switched my cpu to new one, Q9550. But I have trouble cleaning the TIM from my TRUE120. It has blotches of old Zalman STG1 TIM which I just cant get off no matter how much I wipe! It almost seem like corroded to it! I have some Kontakt PRF-IPA isopropyl alcohol spray which cleans most of...

    Aftermarket coolers for Palit GTX460 1gb?

    Hi. I upgraded to Palit GTX 460 1gb Sonic Edition lately, and part of me now wishes I should have chosen some other brand/model. Its cooler, while it manages to keep card cool enough for gaming, but only barely. The moment I saw the cooler I thought "they've got to be kidding me": A huge blob of...

    Safe temps on HD4890?

    So I installed Accelero S1 to my HD4870, with two 120mm fans. But I have bit uneven temperatues. GPU temps, GPU memio and dispio are low, and VRMs are relatively good (still hit 100C on furmark, but not much over) However, shadercore gets really high! In furmark it almost got to 110C before I...

    Got new HD4890, but CCC Overdrive is missing.

    So, I finally got it! HD4890 to replace my busted HD4870. But, where has Overdrive overclocking dissappeared? I am using latest 9.4 catalyst, but it isnt there. I have reinstalled it couple of times already, and used Driversweeper too. I would really like to try my overclocking potential on...

    Looking for new keyboard.

    Looking for new keyboard. As an oldschool computer user, I have always used these old clackety clack keyboards. Either scavenged old keyboards or newer ones based on old technology. (at the moment I use Keytronic KT1000, great keyboard) Reason is simple, I can press almost unlimited number of...

    HD4870 died. Need a new graphics card.

    I have no idea how this happened, but my HD4870 1GB suddenly stopped working. It just shows black screen. Cannot return it because of the Accelero S1 installed on it (properly, heat was never a problem, even VRMs were way below 100C except on furmark it was bit over) Now I'm back to my 8800GTS...

    From LP2475w to FP241W? Worth of the shot?

    I made quite a discovery. A shop around here got few of Benw FP241W monitors and is selling them for very cheap, 399€! Thing is, I already have my LP2475w and I am otherwise satisfied to EXCEPT for two things. Wide gamut is still not completely fixed despite saturation control on ATI drivers...

    Lost in the IPS screen choices. LG W2600HP or HP LP2475w

    Greetings. Allright, here is my problem. Rather long text coming up. I am looking for IPS panel monitor for gaming. Currently I use Viewsonic VX2240W, which has served me well, (other than that DAMN ANNOYING Dynamic Contrast bug where it is turned partially on every time I turn the screen on or...
