    Uplay store warning

    People got charged more than once because they didn't actually get the game or any key. The CC process offered no feedback of what the issue was, resulting in some thinking they had made a mistake in the CC form, and trying again, not knowing their card got charged every time

    Uplay store warning

    I consider myself to be a fairly patient man. But, I don't get this, you go to try buy something online on the internet, you fill in your CC info, click "Buy" and get a "404 page not found", and that's it. Money gone. No confirmation email, no product received, no trace of the transaction...

    Uplay store warning

    I consider Ubisoft to be in the entertainment industry. When do we have the time to be entertained? During office hours? In 2019 I do expect a big company like Ubisoft to have at least a skeleton crew working at support, if only to let us know they are working on it, and maybe stop accepting...

    Uplay store warning

    Just wanted to warn the forum users of a pending issue with the Uplay store. Before Easter break, many customers, myself included, experienced problems trying to buy games on Uplay. The Anno 1800 game, was just released, and many had hoped to be able to play the game during Easter break. But due...

    List your most fun or favorite overclock

    The IPC of the AMD Athlon was better than Intels P4 netburst architecture at the time. So AMD felt the 2000+, though only clocked at 1.67GHz, was comparable in performance to a 2000MHz P4. So, to "help" customers compare the competing products, AMD introduced PR rating on the processors. Socket...

    List your most fun or favorite overclock

    So many, but my first oc, a 486SX-20MHz overclocked to 33MHz by changing an on board jumper comes to mind. Probably back in 1992. Or my first OC on water, around year 2000/late 1999, a socket 370 P3 650 coppermine, overclocked by changing the fsb from 100x6.5=650 to 140x6.5=910MHz. Waterblock...

    upgrade to 24 gb ram

    Agreed. Also setup your system so it will boot up memtest86+ directly from a USB thumb drive/cd/dvd or similar before messing with anything ram related (BIOS settings, adding/removing ram modules) , as booting up windows with unstable memory might cause havoc on your filesystem and corrupt...

    Alphacool GPX AMD rx 580 install options

    Nice! I got a NexXxos GPX on my 1080ti, the only block I could find for my Palit card. It keeps the GPU temps in the 30-40°C range full gaming load (dedicated loop, 360rad and Laing D5), while OC'ed to 2012MHz with 1.093Vgpu and 140% power target (350W). I have yet to see any throttling, so I'm...

    Question about psu rails

    Isn't the max current divided by 2? Just thinking in case of a short circuit, it will be safer? (less energy involved) EDIT: I just came across this article. That's a lot of energy! OT: I bought a used Corsair RM1000i, and I believe it has a switch for selecting multi/single rail operation...

    1080 Ti FTW3 Voltage question.

    I'm sure it is fine with decent water cooling. I threw it in for those tempted to try it on air :)

    1080 Ti FTW3 Voltage question.

    Is it the xoc BIOS with no power limit? If it is, keep in mind that instead of throttling down clocks and volts, it keeps clocks as is, and increase voltage when heat usually would cause it to drop a clock bin. So it tries to combat possible instability at a certain temp/clock level by throwing...

    Is 650-750W enough

    Ryzen 3000 listed online early on russian site.

    8 physical cores or more makes the most sense to me since we have had 8 separate running threads available in our gaming computers for many years now. Thinking developers might target that number when they need as many cores as possible for say High or Ultra quality in a game. If there is a...

    GPU Crashes, fans 100%

    I believe a 8 pin pcie power cable consists of: 3xGND wires 1xGND Sense wire 3x+12V wires 1x+12V sense wire 1 molex consits of: 1x+5V wire 2xGND wires 1x+12V wire And the molex to 8pin pcie adapters I have seen only use 2 molex's. So you might get enough GND, but only 2x+12V wires from the...
