    MSI X470 boards now support voltage offsets

    I built my girlfriend a high end PC last year using a 2700X and an MSI X470 Gaming Pro board. At the time, MSI did not offer voltage offset configurations or tweaks in the BIOS. So I just enabled PBO and left it as-is with everything on auto. Researching the Ryzen 3000 stuff today, I found...

    Put together my first Ryzen build

    My girlfriend had been playing on an older Acer laptop for a while, and I was watching it struggle with FFXIV lately. With the tariffs on PC components about to kick in, and her birthday coming up, I put together an early present for her last night. I built the PC, she picked up the monitor to...

    Jim Keller leaves AMD Ooof. This isn't good in my opinion. I know this is the GPU forum but the AMD CPU forum is dead. I think this doesn't bode well for the future.

    Fury X voltage control coming soon

    Looks like W1zzard has cracked the voltage control on Fury and tools to control voltage will be available soon. Unfortunately, performance gains don't look that good and the power increase is huge.

    FS: (2) Sapphire reference 290X video cards

    Hello [H], I have for sale two reference Sapphire 290X video cards. These cards were purchased new in December 2013 and have been in my main system until I upgraded this past week. These cards have been in a well cleaned system, not abused / mined on, and are in excellent condition. I ran a...

    Witcher 3 Performance Discussion

    Sorry if a new thread bothers anyone but I wanted to fork this away from the GameWorks controversy and just focus on player experiences. I'm playing on a 4770K at 4.4GHz, single AMD 290X (I have two but CrossFire is not working yet) and 16GB of RAM. The game is running at around 50-60 fps, on...

    Dragon Age Inquisition benchmarks.

    Game is unlocked in South Korea as of 10AM EST. If you are in SK, or Origin thinks you are (hint), you can play now. I just benchmarked the game using the built in benchmark under "Extras". It is very demanding on max. There is a texture setting above Ultra: "Fade Touched". Here are my...

    FS: 2x EVGA GTX 680 2GB with backplate, hi-flow bracket

    Hi there, I am selling my EVGA GTX 680s. I picked these up on release in March 2012 and have been using them in my main gaming system since then. The cards have never been abused, and were stored in a case that was cleaned regularly. Each card comes with EVGA's backplate and hi-flow...

    290X CF setup not working - please help (X58 users?)

    Hi there, I just installed my 290X CF setup today into my system in my signature. When I have both cards installed, using the latest AMD beta drivers and Windows 8.1, my system slows down dramatically. Windows takes much longer to boot, the whole system feels laggy and games are unplayable...

    Time table on X99?

    When is the next Intel chipset coming? I assume this is set to be released with Haswell-E? I'm really ready to build another monster system, as my i7 930 is starting to become a bit of a bottleneck without SATA 3, PCI-E 3.0, and limited memory speeds. But I really don't want to upgrade to a X79...

    High GPU usage in Windows 8.1

    I just upgraded to Windows 8.1 Pro and whenever I have Chrome open I am seeing unusually high GPU usage. See here: Is this normal? It wasn't like this under Windows 7. Not a huge deal but it's heating up my computer more than normal and my room is already hot. Normally my cards idle in...

    Porting GPU Boost 2.0 to 600 series?

    Now that the 770 is officially released, has anyone made any legitimate attempts at porting the 770 BIOS back to the 680? I am curious if the 680 could be made to work with GPU Boost 2.0. Being able to raise the temperature throttling threshold would be great. I know there were fake reports of...

    Frostbite 3 Technology Video

    All the technology is from Battlefield 4, but this is the engine powering the next Mass Effect, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Mirror's Edge 2, and most likely Battlefront 3, among others. Some of this should be absolutely incredible in an RPG.

    How Microsoft's Creative Director feels about consumers and always-on consoles.

    I don't understand how it's possible to be this out of touch with consumers. Seeing the direction Sony is going with the PS4 versus MS with the next-gen Xbox, I hope they crush them.

    Computer powers off under Prime95/heavy gaming.. already replaced PSU.

    Hello, Recently I noticed that under certain high load situations, like playing BF3 or running Prime95, my computer would hard reboot - no BSOD, no errors, just shut off and then turn back on. I understand this is typically a power supply issue. I was using a BFG EX-Series 1000w PSU, which...

    Cleaning dust from your case... ?

    Hello, Just curious what you guys use to clean components and cases out? I have a ton of compressed air cans and those work great to start, but they don't really remove the tiny coating of dust that lingers on PCBs and other parts. Paper towels don't work because they snag on everything, and I...

    EVGA Motherboard reviews?

    Why haven't we seen dual-chip cards that share memory?

    So we've had dual GPU video cards for quite some time now - why don't we have video cards that can share the memory between both GPUs? This seems like it would be a win/win for both manufacturers and for consumers. You wouldn't need to needlessly double RAM on a video card just to duplicate the...

    So here is why you should never buy a Lexmark printer. I purchased a Prevail 705 for my home office about a year and a half ago. I rarely print, but for some reason my black ink cartridge decided to go bad with about 35% capacity remaining. So I needed to replace the cartridge. Lexmark...
