    Stupid thing with AMD card on GTA V

    Clear GTA5 shader cache. Could try that as it seems easy enough to do quickly.

    Do PSUs still use liquid capacitors?

    Yes they still use large electrolytic filter capacitors to smooth the ripple voltage as there is currently no better solution for this function.

    Intel Arc A770m - Current state of drivers and game support for Arc in general?

    Well this gpu has victimized another psu. The new evga 750 watt I put in there lasted about 40 minutes before it started tripping OCP. Stuck the card back on the test bench that's equipped with a 1250 watt psu and it works fine there. So apparently this thing requires a 12v rail that can support...

    Intel Arc A770m - Current state of drivers and game support for Arc in general?

    Yea their next iteration will need some vrm and vrm algorithm improvements with higher frequency and faster response latency to stay ahead of the core transient loading but I don't doubt that it will a considerable improvement on this generation which really is proving to be quite good for a...

    Opinion, repair or not, 6900xt

    Yea his work on a thoroughly whacked 6900XT was nothing short of open heart surgery in it's precision reconstruction of the gpu core solder pads and traces. I'd wait if it were my decision unless your willing to pay the express fee.

    Opinion, repair or not, 6900xt

    I highly recommend this this guy for the repair. Have been subbed to his channel for a year or so and he is by far one of the best I've seen at his craft.

    Intel Arc A770m - Current state of drivers and game support for Arc in general?

    Ok after playing with this card for the past week I have to say wow what a difference a year makes for the drivers and what a massive improvement to the cooler design from Sparkle. As far as performance goes I will now say goodbye to the htpc RX 6650XT. The Sparkle A770 outperforms it...

    Use the AMD cleanup utility after uninstall then reinstall 24.1.1. Had same issue until I did that.

    Intel Arc A770m - Current state of drivers and game support for Arc in general?

    I just grabbed a Sparkle A770 from Amazon for $289 for my HTPC. Will be running it on the test bench every night for the next week before installing it into the HTPC. I'm hoping that the driver and memory cooling issues are mostly ironed out by now as the previous OEM A770 I tried just wasn't a...

    Broken M.2 slot. Safe to boot?

    Ahhh Norwegian that explains the savage treatment of the board....🤣J/K man.

    Broken M.2 slot. Safe to boot?

    Yes that's possible but once it's removed and the solder pads are cleaned to prevent bridging circuits it's almost ready for socket replacement.

    Broken M.2 slot. Safe to boot?

    Send it to me I'll replace the M2 socket and test it.

    Hardware Requirements for VR Gaming with Oculus Quest 2

    IMO it's a far better experience with an over specced system as VR stutter festivals make people motion sick and tend to turn them off to VR. Minimum FPS for VR to me is 72 but 90 is a far better experience.

    ASUS - resurrecting the dead (laptop)

    That's a PGA 478 cpu so you can upgrade it for fairly cheap T6670 double the L2 cache and PC2 533mhz 2x2 gigs. Just add a cheap low capacity SSD and that thing will amaze you. I do it to laptops all the time and people are blown away at how good they work after a $100.00 dollar refurb. BTW most...

    7800x3d build failure - *now working

    My idle temp is 38C gaming usually low to mid 70's. Cinebench at 87 but that's also where I set thermal throttling in bios.

    Yea still debating the Carbon wifi. Don't need but want it sorta thing. It has 8x8x4 5.0 and that's the only reason I'm considering it at all. My current board is more than sufficient for my needs right now so ....

    (kb5034441) wont install with error code (0x80070643)

    Wow way to stay on top of things MS. Maybe they need some common sense incorporated into their business as usual mentality. Maybe I'm just expecting too much.

    Low Time Spy Scores - RTX 4090 STRIX OC - 30K Graphics

    Was just skimming through this thread and noticed what might have been the issue with the ASUS mainboard. Shouldn't those be A2 and B2.

    7800x3d build failure - *now working

    Which MSI did you go with as I'm considering a new board with a 5.0X16 but they're quite pricey still? Been looking at the Carbon wifi but waiting to see it get a bit lower in price.

    (kb5034441) wont install with error code (0x80070643)

    I wonder has anyone checked to see if the windows installation media image has been updated to incorporate the enlarged partition to accommodate this update yet?

    Anyone have experience with segfaults halting the boot process?

    Memory bit flip potential causes. Memory bit flipped at that address and likely wrote an error to the kernel requiring a reinstall of the OS.

    Anyone have experience with segfaults halting the boot process?

    Yea it likely should have. You can create a bootable memtest flash drive and let it run overnight to see if any errors pop up. I really don't know a lot about linux distros as I have only occasionally dabbled with a few but I found a decent guide for getting to terminal for further...

    Anyone have experience with segfaults halting the boot process?

    No issues with the usb distro means you can forget the psu testing as it's likely a software or kernel issue memory address violation.

    [Epic Game Store] Fishing Planet FTP

    Hoping one day for a somewhat realistic steelhead trout fishing game. Pound/pound imo there is no better fighter on the planet as well as one of the most elusive fish one can angle for. They are also one of the tastiest fish I've ever caught and cooked. Took me a couple years of trying to catch...

    Anyone have experience with segfaults halting the boot process?

    Seg fault definition and causes. Also check with multimeter the psu's outputs on 3.3v and 5v outputs and see if they sag below spec. 5v. can be checked at a molex connector red wire 3.3v is found in the 24 pin mainboard plug and can be carefully back probed at the green wires. Software is most...

    5600G build and PBO question

    Nice these 5600G's are great little cpus. Mine has served me well for nearly two years in my test bench but it's nearing time to retire it. Looking at the 670 platform as newer gpus are becoming more potent requiring more processing power and better PCI-e (B450) support to push them to the their...

    The board will reset upon cpu change so no it won't help. No other board to try the 5900X in?

    5600G build and PBO question

    I run the 5600G in my test bench @ 4.6Ghz under a peerless assassin 120SE as it's not stable much higher than that but it's a quick and cool little cpu and the onboard graphics are very handy when testing gpu issues. The onboard graphics are fine for very light gaming and more than sufficient...

    official AFMF drivers 24.1.1

    No issues for my system on this set but a 6750XT system did the same as yours. Uninstalled the driver used AMD cleanup utility and reinstalled 24.1.1 again and it was ok after that.

    Awesome Low Profile CPU cooler

    Nice AM4 AM5 hardware as well. Been looking for something better than the turd cooling my wife's 7700X for awhile and it has to be very low profile. Gonna measure the clearance tonight. Thanks for the tip I had given up looking for a decent solution/price.

    Overclocking my 4090 FE?

    Undervolting can be used to over clock a gpu by increasing the amount of TDP head room of it's power budget P=IV . Lowering the voltage of the formula in small increments allows for increasing the current and core speed without hiitting the 600 watt TDP where throttling will occur. Perhaps you...
