    Asus Rog Strix GTX 1070 Low Fps and stutter

    Perhaps find out what bios version you are using now for the Asus H97 Plus. If you are using a really old bios for the motherboard, you may need to update the bios. See if such bios update could improve the performance of PC system with the GTX 1070. There are a lot of bioses for your...

    Meet the New Logitech

    Didn't Arctic Cooling (known for their CPU coolers and thermal paste, e.g. Arctic Silver 5 and the MX series) make a similar step years ago? Now it's called "Arctic". Is Arctic doing well now (at least better than before when they are called Arctic Cooling)? Anyway, I have had many Logitech...

    NVIDIA Back to Dirty Tricks with GTX 900M Series Overclocking

    I guess Nvidia may ask premium for overclock-able (mobile) GPUs in the near future (kinda equivalent to Intel Core i5/7 K series processors)...

    need help with accessing the control panel on my sound card.

    Perhaps you can use this unofficial driver pack for Audigy Se series instead, may be the best driver pack you can get which is made by Daniel_K. who's famous for modding Creative Labs soundcards' drivers. Uninstall the current driver you used for the Rockfish soundcard and install this driver...

    Installed new GPU, CPU/MEM 96-100%, Apps running slower. PSU?

    Perhaps you could check whether there's something throttling in your PC: GPU or CPU? How the temperature of CPU and GPU for example?

    Gigabyte GTX 960 OC 2 GB

    I know about that, but it's kinda fun to know. I guess some people like to know how that ASIC quality relate to the overclock-ability of this particular GTX 960 OC and their own GTX 960 cards; they could have compared the ASIC quality of their own GTX 960 cards with this Gigabyte GTX 960 OC.

    Return GTX 980 or wait for GTX 980TI

    Wouldn't getting a refund and re-buying the GTX 980 of your choice give you the Witcher 3 voucher? Anyway, The Gigabyte GTX 980 G1 Gaming isn't the quietest GTX 980 (it's huge and long too), especially when you're getting used to the silent MSI GTX 980 Gaming 4G already.

    Return GTX 980 or wait for GTX 980TI

    Beware that you may get a GTX 980 with Hynix videomemory instead of Samsung videomemory, if you really cares about overclockability of the videomemory too. Personally, I would exchange for another MSI GTX 980 Gaming 4G, since it has tad better features than Asus' Strix variant of GTX 980: LED...

    EVGA GTX 970 Coil Whine even after a RMA

    Apparently, it's a luck of draw. I have returned two GTX 970s; an Asus Strix GTX 970 and a Gigabyte GTX 970 ITX/mini because of coilwhine. The returned Strix GTX 970 suffers from some heavy coilwhine (including ticking, buzzing). So I have exchange for a Gigabyte G1 gaming GTX 970 which has way...

    chinese website stealing content from hardware websites

    The worst is that fashaoyou site is placing its own watermarks on the pictures that are actually made by the staff from TechPowerUp; it's like those pictures are their own. I would say TechPowerUp should put their own watermarks to protect their reviews and pictures in the TPU reviews. Perhaps...

    Need help picking a psu

    650 Watt is more than enough for your mentioned setup. But if you are going to make use of SLI/dual GPU setup in the near future, then 750W would be better. Anyway, the Seasonic unit mentioned by TommyT is really good, better than the EVGA G1 650 (believe it makes use of a FSP Aurum OEM) and...

    NVIDIA Rolls Out GeForce 347.52 WHQL Game Ready Driver

    On the other hand, ATI (currently AMD) used to make great videocards (and by the way is still making good ones), e.g. ATI's Radeon 9700Pro and 9800Pro/XT beat the Geforce FX 5800/5900 series hands down :rockout:(especially in Half Life 2, if I remembered it correctly). Of course, I am unhappy...
