    Post Your Workstations 2020

    The very short review is that I got what I paid for. The power cable connection is loose out of the box, so slight jostles turn the screen off. Sometimes I need multiple power cycles for it to pick up a signal from HDMI/DP. It used to make an awful screeching noise. There is constant...

    Overclocking on B450 Tomahawk?

    I've been hearing the same thing from many people - "The B450 Tomahawk is a great board, just don't plan to overclock". I find this super confusing. While it doesn't have an amazing VRM setup, the overclocking headroom on Zen 2 is so small that I don't really understand why this is an issue...

    Overload is out.

    Played through the demo - VERY reminiscent of Descent! Looks good and runs reasonably well (60fps average) on low settings with my rig (granted, at 3440x1440).

    The cacodemon is by far the most important part, but no :P The keyboard is a frankenstein of 3 CM Storm tenkeyless boards. Red switches/PCB in base of a broken brown switch model with keycaps and top from a separate broken brown switch model.

    VIOTEK GN34C 34x14 100Hz VA with freesync $550

    Just ordered... snagged for $599CAD so a killer price! Should arrive in a week or two :| It arrived. It kind of works. Would not recommend, spend the extra money and get something that won't make you want to punch your wall. The screen quality is fantastic, but whatever they're using for a...

    Gameing chair suggestions

    Honestly, for the price of the "gaming chairs", just buy a used Aeron or something. Higher quality, lifetime warranty, and it won't stick out in any setting. As for a floor mat - Ikea, Office Depot, Costco, etc... all sell floor protectors. They're usually $10-15.

    New Office Desk (Budget less than 10K)

    This meme is so dank that I am literally drowning. On the off chance that you're serious, I'll check what I have at the office tomorrow. Motorized sit/stand, big enough for 2 people to set up, and I THINK roughly the dimensions you want.

    Windows 10 Stuck on "Welcome"

    After rebooting, or booting from a full shutdown, I will get to the login page, enter my credentials, and hit enter, only to be greeted with an endless loading screen on "Welcome". The only way around this appears to be booting into Safe Mode, and then rebooting normally. Trying to do a startup...

    FPS drops OCing R9 280?

    Looks like that was it guys - the power limit settings. Bumped that up to 20%, temps are still good, and the overclocking is actually showing the gains it should. Thanks so much! Happy with a stable 1050/1500 up from 940/1250 :)

    FPS drops OCing R9 280?

    Can I monitor VRM through GPUZ? I've been watching the core temp and it barely breaks 60C during these tests. What confuses me a bit about the power throttling is that I can literally overclock it by .005% (940 -> 945) and have this issue, but I won't rule it out until I try it! Thanks again.

    FPS drops OCing R9 280?

    Aha - I'll give that a shot as soon as I'm done with work today. Thanks! I did see 20% in several of the reviews, but was a bit wary about overvolting on a brand new card... if it doesn't do that though, excellent!

    FPS drops OCing R9 280?

    Hi All, I picked up the Sapphire Dual-X R9 280 3GB yesterday and have been playing around with it. First off, no major issues which is fantastic, and it's rock solid after a night of being pegged mining (0 HW failures!). What is a bit weird is that if I take this card anywhere outside of...

    Been out of the game - advice on new build

    The H80 is double the price, will have to do some thinking on that one. Benchmarks do look good though. The ASRock board looks fantastic, honestly didn't know about it. Will give that a shot, thanks for the suggestion!

    You can do every bit of solo content just fine as CNJ/WHM, it just takes longer than as a pure DPS class (but not by a huge amount).

    going from E8300 to Q6600 help with FFXIV frame rate?

    Honestly that's pretty good performance for a setup that old... I've got an OC'd i7 930 and in most situations (outside of cities) I only hover around 50fps. I'd count your blessings and save for a total overhaul.

    Final Fantasy XIV Official Release Thread

    This really shouldn't be surprising... There's also no SLI support anyway as I recall, so you're not gaining anything there. MMOs are always very, very bad on performance when you're around 100+ other players. That said, you shouldn't be getting any huge slowdowns in 4/8 player dungeons...
