    What are you playing?

    What I find pretty weird, is that I think Halo: CE is the only game on PC that has all of the assets on the map file itself, almost every texture can be different and rarely ever used on another map in the campaign which makes all of the maps mostly unique, the exception are the maps where you...

    ID-Cooling Reveals IS-30 Low-Profile Air Cooler for up to 100 W CPUs

    The stock heatsinks say this is cute. I can imagine the cpu throttling at 65W unless ya turn up the fan speed until your ears start begging for mercy. An LPC from Phanteks or Noctua would smash this thing.

    What are you playing?

    Finished up with Shadow Warrior 2, the ending was abrupt. Didn't go to any forums yet to check what that was all about, anyway. It's like there was supposed to be some DLC or something, but that seems like it all I can do is start an NG+. Trying to go back from where I left on in Altis campaign...

    Antec Announces Prizm Cooling Matrix Compound Fans

    At that price you can get 3x fans with RGB. So... *shrug* whyyy? Sure they won't come with a controller, but you can deck out the case fully with that. And shortening the time of installation, how? If it doesn't just clip on or something and just uses screws, the time savings would be...

    Ryzen Owners Zen Garden

    The latency is still what drives me absolutely nuts because Intel platforms boast it to be that much better. It's all numbers though... In real usage cases it probably doesn't make any difference when I game, but alas can't test that without a i5-8400/i5-8600K somewhere lying around. I'm happy...

    Ryzen Owners Zen Garden

    I wonder if I have posted mine, can't find it in the posting history, so here are updated results after some tweaking around clock speeds, timings and power states. UserBenchmarks: Game 103%, Desk 89%, Work 73% CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 2600 - 92.5% GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 - 111% SSD: Crucial MX300...

    NVIDIA Releases GeForce 417.71 WHQL Drivers with FreeSync Support

    Such is life with the developers just not caring enough about modders and enthusiasts, they just gave us the tools and left us to our devices. Would be nice if they at least had the courtesy of releasing some executable source code for the older games. Because a lot of what has to be done to fix...

    NVIDIA Releases GeForce 417.71 WHQL Drivers with FreeSync Support

    Yeah guys, most "Freesync 1" monitors require the use of DisplayPort for it to work, especially if there is no OSD option. Then again maybe the Nvidia driver specifically looks up some table in the monitor's firmware to confirm it has Adaptive Sync. All I had to do was enable Freesync through...

    NVIDIA Releases GeForce 417.71 WHQL Drivers with FreeSync Support

    Are you using DisplayPort? Yeah, you could go .ini editing, the thing is you have to pin the physics to a certain value. Which of course will have problems with a variable framerate. I am using a mod/F4SE DLL that edits the value on-the-fly based on framerate so I have no more physics/game...

    NVIDIA Releases GeForce 417.71 WHQL Drivers with FreeSync Support

    I was using an AOC 27" 1080p panel that was 75hz TN Freesync, it worked for the most part but the experience was inconsistent because the RX 460 that was driving the game was a little hit-and-miss for 1080p High. At the time I couldn't get the hardware that I needed to test something...

    NVIDIA Releases GeForce 417.71 WHQL Drivers with FreeSync Support

    First you enable Freesync on the monitor itself through the menus, then a G-Sync option should appear in the Nvidia Control Panel which should have your monitor listed as a display option on which you want to enable "G-Sync". You have to put a tick on the box for option 3 if you want to enable...

    NVIDIA Releases GeForce 417.71 WHQL Drivers with FreeSync Support

    GTX 1070 + LG 29UM69-G (29" 2560x1080 40-75hz), works fine. But as soon as I exited Fallout 4 there was a longer black screen to disable Adaptive sync and I got an audible pop from the monitor itself... Yikes! I think it was the overdrive that might have done that. Since I am pretty sure this is...

    Akasa Vegas RAM Mate is a Trident Z-lookalike for your Non-RGB Memory Modules

    Looks like a Chinese knock-off... just like their RGB strips.

    NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang on Radeon VII: "Underwhelming (...) the Performance is Lousy"; "Freesync Doesn't Work"

    He is feeling the pressure now and lost his cool. What is it JHH? Is that leather jacket getting a little tight or something? :laugh::laugh: The marketing and lies are like 2 ends of a pole, nVidia better end up hitting themselves back into the hole they dug.

    Colorful Launches GeForce RTX 2080 Ti RNG Edition Featuring Full-Color LCD

    I thought this was going to be the RNJesus +2 edition which has 5% chance to drop. Disappointed.
