    Amd R9 270 problems

    I had a very similar (or the same) issue with a 270 I had bought. Apparently it was a Dell card that someone previously had flashed a regular 270 bios on. My issue was that the card would work fine as long as I didn't install the drivers. If I installed the Radeon drivers it would crash as soon...

    WCG-TPU Cruncher's Hardware/Tech Support Discussion Thread

    Anyone knows if an HD7850 is still good for GPU units? I think it has OpenCL1.2 support but I don't know what the GPU work units require.

    TPU's Nostalgic Hardware Club

    The build is barely larger than my modded Vostro 270s, about 1" taller and 1" longer... ahh, the Vostro has a Core i5-10400 ;) I used to love big builds (my main rig was a CM Cosmos) but nowadays space is a premium with the wife around and all that so SFF it is. I still got my Cosmos in...

    TPU's Nostalgic Hardware Club

    Not exactly the same case but this one just has a differente front panel from what I can tell: http://kmex.com.br/exibir.asp?pag=E...sb=321&tsb=Gabinetes-Slim-Micro-ATX&prod=645# There's also this from Acteck: https://www.amazon.com.mx/gp/product/B07YJ7FR7Q?pf_rd_r=AH3DK9X9FSETZ54DRV16 The PSU...

    TPU's Nostalgic Hardware Club

    It's a K-MEX CM-918A, supposedly it's a Brazilian made case but I'm pretty sure some (or most) of their cases come from China as I'm pretty sure I've seen some of "their" designs on Aliexpress and such. For example, this one is basically an InWin Chopin with a different front panel...

    TPU's Nostalgic Hardware Club

    Got busy making a Windows XP build, mainly for EAX games and the weird one that doesn't run on W10. I used leftovers from my old FAH/WCG farm: Asrock 880GM-LE FX motherboard Phenom II X2 521, fastest 65w AM3 CPU (OEM part, basically an Athlon II X2 with an 667Mhz memory controller, every Athlon...

    AMD Ryzen 5 1500X 3.5 GHz

    Some reviews report that the 1500X has 16MB of cache, is that so or what then? :confused:

    [solved(??)] 2.4Ghz ping spikes/packet loss on TP-LINK Archer C5 v2 AC1200 router

    I finally got the 2.4Ghz band working fine. In fact what gave me the tip were the recent PS4 wifi issues. I disabled Wireless N in the 2.4Ghz band and everything is peachy now (running just B/G). Bummer that you have to disable features in order to get a working connection. :banghead:

    The Legend of Zelda™: Breath of the Wild (Discussion...)

    I've read that there are some special weapons that can be reforged (you'll need minerals for that ) but I've got to run into them still. Besides one of the shrines in a peninsula at the Necluda area there's a group of goblins with swords that have pretty good stats (at least at the point I'm...

    AMD's Ryzen Cache Analyzed - Improvements; Improveable; CCX Compromises

    It all depends on how you see things really. If you want absolutely the best gaming performance then stick with Intel. If you need a CPU with lots of threads that can also game pretty well then go for the R7s. My main gaming rig still has a 3770k, haven't found a reason to upgrade yet. Same...

    Ryzen Gaming Build Strategy

    For gaming on the AM4 platform I would wait until the 4 core parts are out. They wouldn't potentially suffer from the core allocation issues that the 8 cores have as of now (though I'm pretty sure we'll see a patch similar to Bulldozer's in order to minimize these). Still the 4 core parts would...

    The Legend of Zelda™: Breath of the Wild (Discussion...)

    I wouldn't take BotW as a measure of how much power does the Switch have. The port was done in less than a year (I recall a video saying it was 9 months) and is coming from an entirely different architecture (PowerPC+TeraScale vs ARM+Maxwell) so it's very possible that they set a lower...

    AMD's Ryzen Cache Analyzed - Improvements; Improveable; CCX Compromises

    L3 performance has been AMD's achilles heel for quite some time, kind of surprised that they haven't corrected this yet. I suppose that a Windows patch to make it "Ryzen aware" will have to be developed (just as it was the case with P4's HT, Athlon 64, Core Duo, Bulldozer, etc., etc) in order to...

    The Legend of Zelda™: Breath of the Wild (Discussion...)

    Started to play yesterday. Sadly I only have the weekends to play and a couple of hours so yeah, I guess I won't play another game this year :D
