    NVIDIA G-SYNC now Supports FreeSync/VESA Adaptive-Sync Technology

    Thanks Nvidia, for finally coming to your senses. So will any cards that support G-Sync work? What about 700-series cards?

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Founders Edition 8 GB

    A wise man once said: "There are no bad cards, just bad prices." He was right. The RTX 2080. Barely any faster than a 1080 Ti. $100 more. So basically the same performance/price. Thanks Nvidia, but no.

    Do you remember your most disappointing video card ever?

    Here goes nothing (in the order of appearance): 1. Gainward FX 5200, shockingly bad, came with my first pre-built PC, low-end and based on Nvidia's notorious FX series. Two strikes you're out. 2. Geforce 4 MX-440. Maker unknown. 128-bit. faster than #1 in most cases but lacked vertex shaders...

    AMD Ryzen 7 1800X 3.6 GHz

    Platform issues aside, seems like an amazing CPU and a great architecture to use as baseline for Zen+. 1700X is the one I'd go with if I eventually decide to ditch my 4670K. Good job AMD, not very often we get to say that.

    Nvidia Reference Cooler on GTX 900 Series

    Absolutely. Despite the high fan speed at default (2650 RPM at 83c) the cooler on Titan-esqe cards is superb.

    AMD Radeon Crimson ReLive Drivers

    One hopes this gives Nvidia incentive to get off their ass and do something to that control panel from 2008 that still use XP icons. De-restricting GFE would be nice, too.

    Nvidia Reference Cooler on GTX 900 Series

    Signed in to caution against reapplying the TIM or even lifting up the backplate, to my knowledge the reference coolers on Nvidia cards have very well applied TIm and high quality material, not your average white blob. Also the thermal pads of VRMs or memory chips could get damaged. You can just...

    The horrors of fixing lga sockets

    Dayum! That looks way worse than my three-pin mishap.

    Force 2D clocks

    You can force UVD clocks by playing an H.264 video but other than that you can limit FPS low enough for your GPU to not jump to higher boost states.

    The horrors of fixing lga sockets

    I feel your pain. I had something similar happen to my Z97 Pro4 but wasn't as big a deal and ended up doing a socket swap for a small fee. Responsible warranty providers would change the socket for you for a fee, might wanna give them a call.

    AMD Radeon RX 480 8 GB

    Oh, they DESERVE to fail? 200$ gets yolu at least 970/290 performance. Power consumption is a bit high but nothing that every power supply in every gaming system ever can't handle. Cooler is a bit disappointing but that's what tne AIB cards are for. I know some people like having their head...

    AMD Radeon RX 480 8 GB

    "Made in Globalfoundries, USA." Well, that's a first. This might be my next cadd, but due to lack of DVI and the crappy cooler gonna wait for AIB cards or the GTX 1060.

    Rat peed on video card, is it possible to fix?

    If there are holes big enough in a case for a rat to slip in and pee on the f'ing video card, you're doing it wrong.

    Crimson Software 16.2.1 for HD5000/6000 series GPUs

    This is a different driver package that supports the pre-GCN 5000 and 6000 legacy cards.
