    Creative X-Fi Soundcards and Windows 10 Fall Creators Update 1709 = Complete Disaster / Not Working

    I have the same sound card. Don't have any issues with it under Fall Creators update. I am using Daniel K.'s drivers as well. Something must have gone wrong during the update process. You should see if the issue persists on a clean install of windows. Also, please post your PC specs.

    How to update LG G3 software via pc

    You should head over to the LG G3 XDA forums, there's a lot more users and info. available there. Normally, you would just download the software suite from LG and reset the phone in case of update issues, but this does not sound normal.

    4K scaling question

    I wish it did do 1:4 scaling, which it doesn't. The monitor uses some silly interpolation to upscale the image instead, which makes it really blurry @1080p. That's why both the monitor and my 290x scaling look the same, as they use similar upscaling.

    4K scaling question

    Gaming at 2k looks good enough, just loses a bit of the sharpness. 1080p looks blurry. I have the Samsung U28D590D monitor. Tried both monitor and VGA scaler, both look identical.

    ST1000DM003 (7200rpm desktop) head parks after some seconds, are they serious!?

    This line of Seagate drives are the worst they have ever produced...I HAD 3 ST3000DM001 drives. One of them suddenly died one day with 100% health, taking all the data with it. The other two started to produce thousands of bad sectors and now windows doesn't detect them anymore. At least I got...

    Samsung Monitor UHD (need advices)

    Do yourself a favor and don't buy the Samsung one. I had two of these and the first one had stuck pixels and the second one had power LED issues which required repairs and then developed dead pixels of its own. All of this happened in less than a month's time (bought the first at the end of...

    MSI Radeon R9 290(X) gaming/lightning card club

    Nice! Question for you, if you don't mind; did u remove the memory/VRM plus the back plate and clean out the oil on the chips? I did clean the GPU but the improvements were nowhere near your results. Would greatly appreciate any help.

    MSI R9 290 temps ?

    I have the 290x Gaming OC card that I got recently with the same temp issues. As the others have suggested; reapplying the thermal paste and undervolting helps, but not by much... Next, I will try cleaning it with some Arcticlean and applying some new MX-4, hopefully that will help a bit...

    MSI Radeon R9 290(X) gaming/lightning card club

    ASIC quality is 81%. I have been able to use -50mV on the core, seems stable so far. Load temps are around high 80s. Would be great if I could just bring it down slightly more. Is it possible that the newer bios could help with that?

    MSI Radeon R9 290(X) gaming/lightning card club

    I wasn't after the higher clock when I asked about the bios. I thought it might help with the temps, due to lower voltage, improvements, etc. BTW, I already cleaned the old paste and applied some Noctua NT-H1, so now its at least usable.

    MSI Radeon R9 290(X) gaming/lightning card club

    Just got myself a used 290x gaming (temps suck) and was wondering if I should update the vbios with this: http://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/152762/msi-r9290x-4096-131223.html. ATM:

    XFX 6970 Black Edition Fan always running at 100%!

    No idea. He complained about this issue about a month or two back, checked the temps, same -165 degree on the core and over 1000 on the VRMs etc. Running furmark seem to kick the temp sensors back to action. Some time afterwards, even the furmark stopped helping, so we changed the cooler. Now...

    XFX 6970 Black Edition Fan always running at 100%!

    My brother's 6970 has the same problem (funny that card is XFX as well...). Running furmark for a while fixes the issue, although temporarily. Card seems to run fine, no throttling, etc. As a workaround, we replaced the cooler with an Accelero Twin-turbo, quiet even at 100% fan.
