    PC won't post with GPU installed

    Having the first pin of the edge connector on the back side of the GPU shorter than the rest can be normal. My GTX460 has it, I just checked. The asrock radeon 6700xt that was recently reviewed on TPU has it too. There are pictures in the article, link...

    Are Mechanical Keyboards a must?

    I much prefer mechanical keyboards. They feel better to type on and to game on than a membrane keyboard to me. I did use some membrane keyboards that were ok, but a mechanical is just better for me. The main advantage of mechanical keyboards is probably the key feel and the fact that the...

    transplant BIOS chip and flash on another mainboard?

    It is possible to take the BIOS chip out and use an EEPROM programmer to write the correct BIOS on to the chip.

    Vertical Ghosting Lines on ViewSonic Gaming Monitor

    If it's actually as bad as your screenshot (or photo?) shows, then there is something seriously wrong. But if the picture isn't accurate and the ghosting isn't as pronounced, then it could be inverse ghosting. And if that is the case, setting the response time in the OSD to a slower value should...

    Hard resets playing games

    Nothing in event viewer means that it can be a power issuer, or something else. So this information did not really help to pinpoint the issue. I would try other CPU stability testing software to see if you get errors in other software or just in prime95. I'm not sure which ones are good now. I...

    FPS drops in game with OK hardware

    GTX 1660 Super should be able to achieve high FPS in LoL. That game runs fine on a GTX 460.

    Hard resets playing games

    Hard restarts may indicate a power issue. Check Windows error logs. They may contain clues on what caused the shutdown. Errors in prime95 mean that the CPU makes mistakes when it's processing instructions. This should be fixed or the system probably won't be able to work reliably. This could be...

    FPS drops in game with OK hardware

    It's probably not the power supply. Actually, this kind of performance may be normal. I remember getting fps drops during large team fights to under 100fps in in LoL as well. It's possible LoL is just badly optimized and does not really take advantage of modern CPUs that have a lot of threads...

    Questions about setting up a RAID Drive

    Snapraid might be a good option for the OP. I didn't use it myself but others use it. "SnapRAID is an application able to make a partial backup of your disk array. If some of the disks of your array fail, even if they are completely broken, you will be able to recover their content. It's only a...

    Mices making buzzing noise ?

    Some mice can make sounds that are similar to coil whine. My steelseries sensei RAW produces a high pitch noise. But it can only be heard when I put my ear close to it.

    Mint or HDD Gone Bad on Me?

    Check log files for disk errors. And install the smartmontools package and use it to check if there are any issues with the hard drive's SMART data.

    AMD Releases Radeon Software Adrenalin 21.2.2

    Making sure that old games like quake 3 work is important. They shouldn't be neglected.

    What power connections do I need?

    I see. I'm not familiar with server power supplies or rack mount cases. I guess power supplies meant for rack mount cases may not often have the connectors needed for desktop video cards. Can a large video card like RTX 3090 really fit into a 2U rack mount case?

    What power connections do I need?

    The 8 pin power connector for the main board and 8 pin for the video card are different. They can't be used interchangeably. The 8 pin for the main board can be called CPU or EPS. Also, 4 of the pins can usually be split off to create a 4 pin CPU connector (some main board use this (or used to...

    144Hz 144FPS but the game is not smooth and there is screen tearing

    Screen tearing is not a fault. It will always happen when the monitor input and video card output are out of sync. At any FPS or refresh rate. The only way to avoid it is to use v-sync (adds input lag) or use a monitor that has adaptive sync technology like g-sync or freesync. There is probably...
