    Gigabyte R9 380 G1 Gaming 4GB Constantly Throttling [solved]

    Hi, EntropyZ! It seems I had the same clock-throttling problems as you have with R9 380, maybe to a lesser extent as I have not noticed massive stuttering. I only thought I could get some extra FPS out of it if it wouldnt be throttling. I thought this was normal and this is just how this model...

    mouse recommendations. Anybody impressed with theyre current/past mice?

    I like my new G502 Proteus Spectrum (I use it with G240 Mousepad). It replaced my old G9, I don't regret my choice.

    Do you install/use the software for your peripherals?

    Depends on the device. If I think it could be useful, I install it. Sometimes I install it and it turns out it's crapware. It lags, it crashes, it doesn't work properly like Benq Display pilot.

    Planning on buying a new video card...need advice

    If you can wait, then wait and see if 380x offers good price/performance. If not, 380 should be fine until HBM2 appears from AMD and Nvidia. That is what I will do.

    Possible Power Issue

    Possible Power Issue

    I have a similar problem. After upgrading to Win10, when my PC has been off for a day, I can turn PC on and it boots and starts to load Windows, then freezes while windows loading screen circle is running. After pressing restart button, it boots and loads windows normally. I have not figured it...

    Measuring PSU's

    1ms/d means if signal waveform's period on screen fits in one division, then frequency of the signal is 1000Hz. 500ms/div means you are seeing signal at hertz range. It is certainly a wrong range to measure PSU ripple. You need to set it to about 5us range to see classical psu's switching...

    Measuring PSU's

    In the first picture, ripple voltage is about 1.5 to 0.5V, judging by the trace. That is very high, should be below 0.05V on 5V rail. Unless you have some kind of probe attenuator set to 0x on the probe and 10x on the scope. Nevermind, in the second picture trace reading does not correspond to...

    Soldering woes - The Disintegrating Tip & Unleaded Wire

    Kind of old thread, but anyway, but just to make it clear: Your tip has nickel coating and underneath the coating it is made of copper. Copper dissolves in tin and lead. As soon as coating is gone, tip dissolves rapidly. The higher the temperature, the faster it dissolves. Nickel coating should...

    Will using Neutral cure Silicone be fine on circuits?

    Some types of silicone sealant contains some acid to cure faster and may be corrosive. This one says neutral cure so it might be ok. Advice: be aware that if you cover VRM's with silicone they may overheat.

    Strange vibrating feeling when touching electronic devices

    ^^ This. Most Switching mode power supplies are made this way. You get half of mains voltage on device metal chassis if it is not grounded. But this is only leak current of some components so very small current, in most cases not hazardous. Some feel it less and some more, because when you...

    crystal replacement?

    Try to get reasonably precise part for the money and it should work. And maybe just try to change crystal and see if device works. That is not the right way, but again if you are lucky it will work. It's just that playing with 0402 size components may not be good idea if you are not done this...
