    Why does Doom Eternal suck?

    I play Doom to quick-scope headshot Imps as I launch from a jump-pad, not to play Simon Says to get the right combo to actually kill something with bullets. Oh, and now melee does no damage unless it's "charged"... another new mechanic to an overly stuffed kit. I just want to headshot demons, so...

    Why does Doom Eternal suck?

    ID set the tone in 2016, then changed it. No surprises that not everyone was on board.

    Why does Doom Eternal suck?

    Yes, in Doom 2016 I favored the Super Shotgun and the Machine Gun with sniper mod as my workhorses. The Rocket Launcher, Gauss Gun, and Gatling Gun were reserved for bosses and mini-bosses, and I largely ignored the Plasma Rifle. In Doom Eternal the devs literally said they don't like players...

    Please help - fan header on ASUS GPU never spins Noctua PWM fan…

    Do that or try Afterburner and create a custom fan curve. I added an aftermarket watercooler and fan to my 1080ti, and the fan won't spin under 20% speed from the card.

    is 1080 decent for 1440P 144hz?

    I had to OC my 1080 heavily in order to just sometimes hit my monitor's max refresh rate of 1440p165. I upgraded to a 1080ti and it hits the refresh rate cap far more consistently. I was seeing 90-120 playing Overwatch on "ultra" with a 4.5GHz 6600k on the 1080. The 1080ti does 120-165. Both...

    Even OLED is a flawed technology

    I'm pretty sad that SED never came to market for TVs and monitors.

    Doom Eternal

    I'm looking forward to the Doom Eternal MP. I loved playing Spy vs Merc in Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow, I loved teaming up with buddies in ME:3 MP for PVE, Overwatch custom games with 6v1 Boss battles are crazy fun. I can pull out Q3 or QuakeLive anytime I need a real arena shooter. It's...

    Buzz/hum through JBL active desktop monitors when GPU is under load -- regardless of soundcard?

    Hey, look, it's the same thing that I posted in December. I'd avoid cheater plugs if possible. Get an in-line ground loop noise eliminator if you haven't by now.

    144 is the new 60?

    I kinda doubt Nvidia paid off some random masters and grand-masters players to astro-turf :) Paid endorsements from professional players are generally disclosed as well.

    144 is the new 60?

    That thread has multiple masters rank (top 3% of playerbase), multiple grand-masters (top 1%), and a top 500 ranked player posting in it, all in support of fast refresh as a substantial improvement to their game. It's relevant to listen to their experience as some of the best players in the...

    144 is the new 60?

    Higher framerates are going to help better gamers more. Take the Overwatch example someone posted earlier, stating they were SR 2500 (Platinum rank). 90% of the player population is in Platinum or under (ranks low to high: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Master, Grandmaster), 10% are...

    BioWare's new IP: Anthem

    What kind of RAM usage you guys seeing? So far I'm seeing utilization of up to 13+GB of system RAM as reported by Afterburner, and about 5.1GB of vid RAM at 1440P ultra.

    I had a ton of fun playing Mass Effect 3 multiplayer with a regular crew. Squad based PVE games are more about assembling a team and seeing what you can accomplish as a group and what trouble you can get into. I never really expected a fabulous single player experience from Anthem, but if it can...

    Which GPU Cooler? Kraken G12 + H55, Arctic AcceleroIII/IV, or Rajintek Morpheus II

    Made some adjustments to my setup. Replaced the Corsair H55 120mm with a NZXT X52 240mm. That dropped the temps by 10c and the fan speed by 20%, keeping it under 60C max. More info here: https://hardforum.com/threads/would-a-corsair-h55-be-enough-to-cool-a-2080-ti.1974196/#post-1044085409

    High-Static Fans as Case Fans

    A black and possibly a Redux version is coming this year. Fans being required to push through both a filter and a radiator is a lot to ask. My setup is the radiators are unfiltered exhausts and the intakes are twin 140MM Corsair ML-140s with a filter in place.

    Would a Corsair H55 be enough to cool a 2080 Ti?

    So I went through the trouble of installing a 240mm NZXT Kraken X52 in place of the 120mm Corsair H55 v2 that was there. I used Noctua NF-P12 120MM 1700RPM Redux fans for both radiators in an exhaust pull config. These are static pressure fans, both the CPU and GPU heat are exhausted directly...

    High-Static Fans as Case Fans

    You'll be fine, but... The Noctua NF-A12x25 PWM are the new gold standard for both static pressure and quiet airflow, any reason other than price you aren't getting them instead? Every other fan in the line-up is an older, less optimized design. You should also have gotten the Noctua NF-P12...

    Why is my monitor black screen for one second?

    Desktop mode versus 3D mode where you are drawing hundreds of watts of power where unstable overclocks would actually come into play, in response to Enigama1987's post.

    Open letter to Microsoft :D

    Updates inoculate PCs from exploits which is why I made the vaccine comparison in the first place. People have stopped updating (there have been COUNTLESS posts in many tech forums saying so) due to the change in trust in MS. This is not so crazy a comparison. I've said my piece and I'm done here.

    Open letter to Microsoft :D

    False equivalence? "You abuse trust, you lose trust" is directly equivalent, and it doesn't matter what the example is. Telemetry in consumer W10 cannot be fully disabled, except by blocking it at the network level. I don't like W10, I posted why, THIS THREAD IS A WIN7 LOVE-IN, so I don't...

    I turned it off, along with the further updates after they started doing roll-ups (which I can actually do, because it's not Win10). There was a time when the CIA used a vaccination program to spy in Pakistan. When it was discovered, people started refusing vaccinations due to their trust being...

    And programs like candy crush or whatnot being "helpfully" re-added during Win10 updates? My Win7 has zero telemetry and no real annoyances. It does exactly what I tell it to and nothing else without hoops to jump through. Windows 7 is a program sold to users, Win10 is a program selling you to...

    I can't believe what people are paying for 2500K and 3570K combos

    I just upgraded from my 2500K system a few months ago, I went with a Skylake 6600K build due to the potential for issues with my Win7 install on later chipsets and it was STILL a pain in the ass to get running. The thing is, I wasn't even hurting with the 2500K... I simply got the upgrade...

    Why is my monitor black screen for one second?

    You may be able to tweak the TDR timings, but that's a huge at-your-own-risk kind of fix. A longer TDR time-out would fix it if it's just a slow response and not actually hanging, but I'm not sure what exactly is going on in the background so it may just end up causing a full BSOD if it isn't...

    Would a Corsair H55 be enough to cool a 2080 Ti?
