    Computer can't keep OC anymore.

    95% chance ram went bad. Very typical for bad ram to cause these issues. Lack of boot due to bad CMOS battery is just usually due to settings not holding between POST cycles. Some boards unlatch CMOS power before POST cycle to help load correct settings and keep soft settings/data from...

    HR-03 GT/R600 and 5700XT 50th

    Mounted the GT to my 5700XT for now. With 30c room ambient and a single 120mm fan i'm loading around 76-80c (~100c hotspot) at 1.13v and averaging 1950mhz. Havent tried much else yet, but I am considering milling the other HR-03 I have (R600 version) to a flat base and sandwiching both...

    AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 Review Roundup

    I wonder if the 5700 series memory timings are as screwed up as all the rest of the AMD line of cards has been.

    -=The official Quantum3D collector thread=-

    I need to get pictures of the others I have too, have a Voodoo 3 and a Rush somewhere. Yes the Voodoo 5's both need that same chip for some reason :( I guess maybe my X-24 is actually a 200SB? edit - 2 Rush's now

    Captain Marvel Will Lead the MCU, Kevin Feige Says

    There are two problems. First is Brie as a person or social media influencer.. i'm not going to say much more than that because its really gone a bit too far in action on her part and reaction on the part of those who employ her (Disney, Marvel). I'd rather just sit and eat popcorn but she's...

    Quantum3D Mercury brick

    The new quake engine game is supposed to support glide! :) Is it possible to get older 3dfx cards on modern motherboards using pci-e to agp/pci risers?? :)

    Quantum3D Mercury brick

    Yes, however if its using Voodoo 3 chipset it should have D3D support. Also since the drivers are based off the Voodoo2 drivers i'm sure you could mix and match to get DX support from the gemini parts However my bad anyways, I think...

    "Star Trek: Discovery" Renewed for Season 3

    Yes, yes it does. I kind of like orville better, but each has their own positive sides and each is doing something for me the other cant, so its all good. ugh Babylon 5. Too much politics.

    RTX Space Invaders Wanted

    out of curiosity, will you try replacing the memory before doing destructive testing? If known good chips still error then that will eliminate the memory from the equation at least

    AMD Radeon VII Chilling & Undervolting @ [H]

    Its not the die that cracks in this case, its the substrate or the internal HBM layers. Realistically not much of an issue unless you're going LN2, otherwise any upgraded air or water cooler would put you at risk with Vega/2 as any cooler could cause "incorrect" clamping force.

    AMD Radeon VII Chilling & Undervolting @ [H]

    Protips: -Cooler base is not very flat, Vega 7 Die may not be very flat as well. -Add washers to rear to increase cooler pressure on die and get better temperatures. -Powerplay tables work for Vega 7

    Rumor: AMD Ryzen 3000 "Matisse" Launching July 7

    AM4 should be fine, thats why we (my post and the quoted ones) were talking about threadripper. EDIT and to be fair, the threadripper issue has a subcategory to it that is memory induced which is why it causes the issue on not just the 2990wx and why the 2990wx is "officially" the only one...

    Rumor: AMD Ryzen 3000 "Matisse" Launching July 7

    The hint and implication is that it would go into the same socket as my 1950x was in, and therefor I would still have quad channel memory.
