    Thanks m8. While on the topic of extensions, do you know of any extension to block web pages from "bypassing" an adblock? :P I got adblock Origin but some sites tell me to disable it to view the content :c..

    VRM temps estimate?

    Hi everyone! Recently installed an Arctic Accelero Xtreme IV on my Gigabyte 1080, however the backplate was not enough to cool the VRM (Main screen would turn off after about 30min or so). So I got some smaller heatsinks to stick on and the system does look stable right now. Problem is, they...

    Is GPU thermal paste electrically conductive?

    Worked perfectly fine after 10min of trying to remove the paste. Probably a bit left, but works fine as mentioned! Thank folks

    Is GPU thermal paste electrically conductive?

    It is the stock paste that got around there, not my own. It happened when it came off. I got most of it off, still some left though. Gonna try with some other cloth and see if I can get it off. Thanks for the help so far :) it

    Please suggest components for 'future-proof' VR build.

    I have a Gigabyte GTX 1080, and being a big fan of Fallout I will let you know that the engine is really not that great to begin with! In some places like inside a big city (boston) ect, I get dips down to 30'ish FPS.. I imagine it's going even lower with VR. - Also I checked my GPU/CPU usage...

    Xbox One X Hardware Specs Give Gaming Desktops a Run for their Money

    The fact that the CPU has more cores gives me hope for better CPU support on PC ports as well. Perhaps in the future a bad console port won't be as "bad" as it can be today. 275W power supply is worrying though isn't it? I mean it is advertised for 4k 60hz is it not??

    Windows 10 Creators Update to Feature New Levels of Privacy Control

    AMD Announces Long Term Strategic Relationship with Bethesda

    Even though I use Intel this is great news. Developers working together with the hardware industry can only lead to better optimization right? Besides, AMD's software is all opensource as far as I know, meaning Nvidia/Intel can optimize their drivers for AMD software as well. Unlike Nvidia...

    AMD's Vega-based Cards to Reportedly Launch in May 2017 - Leak

    Perhaps a 17% discount on the 1080 currently is not such a bad deal after all.. If Vega only comes around in May. Also - Is it a driver thing that makes AMD faster in Vulkan API? Or will Nvidia need a brand new architecture in order to catch up with that?

    Buy GTX 1080 on sale or wait for Vega?

    Im going to wait for Vega and the 1080 Ti to drop the price some more before I purchase anything then. My current card can handle gaming well enough, although not at the highest graphics lately. Thanks for the help people!

    Buy GTX 1080 on sale or wait for Vega?

    The cost after discount is 708 USD, but since I live in DK there is a 25% tax on it. (Included in price) so the real cost would be 531 USD I guess. Also yeah, I could wait it out. I am just unsure of how much more powerful the vega will be, and what the price tag will be on a brand new card...

    Buy GTX 1080 on sale or wait for Vega?

    Hi everyone! I am in a bit of tough choice here. I know that there is no exact release date for AMD Vega yet (as far as I know). However, there is a Gigabyte GTX 1080 on sale at my local hardware store, 17% off. Do you think it would be a good idea to purchase with a 17% discount or hold back...

    So what do you think about WattMan in Crimson ReLive edition?

    Question: Have you had problems with the fan not spinning after a restart? I've had my fans on my Sapphire 390 being completely turned off and resulting in a system crash a few times now.. For me I need to leave it on auto or it won't work after a reboot :s
