    My monitor Powers off when gaming..

    It sounds dust related to me, take off side and blow it out with a shop vac if you have one. Make sure to hit the PSU to.

    What have you done to me.

    don't worry I found the cure! It's a three step program. 1. have kids 2. buy an junky house 3. get old With these three easy steps you won't have time, energy or money to work on your rig. You will no longer care about your benchmark numbers because you will be burned out on PC's from fixing...

    If you had $500, $1000, $2000, what would you spend it on?

    buy windows. The kind for a house not the free OS. That's only if I don't have to get braces for my daughter and nothing else falls apart or blows up. I couldn't bring myself to spend $1000 on a PC. I'm dropping $600 on my mostly new build and that's bugging me:cry:

    AMD's RX 580, 570 and RX 550 Specifications and 3D Mark Results Leak

    Without power usage numbers it's hard to say if a rebrand is justifiable. If there hitting 1500 at 150w than that's worthy of a name change. Isn't this what intel's been doing for years now[ with a socket change].

    Is having a 120-144Hz monitor useful if you can't get 120-144 frame rates?

    CRU tool lets you adjust freesync range not sure how well it works on any given monitor. You can also use it to enable freesync on a lot of monitors with dvi,dp or hdmi.

    Is having a 120-144Hz monitor useful if you can't get 120-144 frame rates?

    This damn thread :mad: made me buy the same monitor as you, should get it in a few days. I OCed my asus to 70hz and enabled freesynce[only works at 60hz though] and wow what a difference 10hz makes for eye strain. The real difference was in gaming though where I can actually hit stuff now. I...

    AMD Responds to Ryzen's Lower Than Expected 1080p Performance

    Because they pissed on there own parade with a not ready for prime time platform. Really sending reviewers systems that hardly work is just screwing themselfs.

    AMD Responds to Ryzen's Lower Than Expected 1080p Performance

    I don't get the focus on the 1080 gaming numbers? from the reviews I read this platform is buggy as all hell! What good is gaming if your rig won't even run,makes me wonder about AMDs relationship with its partners.

    Whatever Happened to the GTX 980 Ti to GTX 1080 Ti Step-up Programme

    Nice to see competition at work but would like more competitors like the old days. We need the NFL not the U.S politic of communism +1 to really drive the industry.

    AMD Ryzen 7 Initial Inventory Looks Healthy

    hope they can keep it up with the upcoming SKUs, a four core 3+ghz and a APU that can game might look real good to the OEMs. Could cost retail volume as AMD hasn't had to deal with real demand for awhile. Can't wait to see the APU benches.

    Following Ryzen's Launch, Intel's CPUs Likely to See Price-Cuts

    That's exactly how they're lowest[Celerons,Pentiums, I3] competes with AMD if they were to lower There I5 and I7s prices to within arrange of AMDs top end there would be no competition. AMD couldn't price for performance and still make a profit. I'm not saying Intels a good guy just they price...

    About Intel price cut article that was deleted.

    I personally like the editorials it shows they read the forums and keep an eye on the scene as a whole. The language could be toned down though it's pretty exaggerate and only leads to fueling the already raging fire here.

    Following Ryzen's Launch, Intel's CPUs Likely to See Price-Cuts

    If it wasn't for intel's high pricing AMD may not even be here now,all they had going was lower build cost. You could look at it as intel pricing to keep the competition alive in a time of no competition. I'm sure intel wants to avoid becoming a true monopoly and risk being busted up.

    About Intel price cut article that was deleted.

    I get your point this is a tech site but without speculation,leaks and rumors it would be little more than press releases. I see the post as a response to the forum buzz just showing and indicator of the predicted price cut in a place that's seen by more people. As for the intel[foxcons best...

    Following Ryzen's Launch, Intel's CPUs Likely to See Price-Cuts

    Really I think the cuts will be to OEMs. There real fear is probably the upcoming ryzen based APUs killing the I3 and I5 in gaming.

    Really broad ones that are based on the obvious future of tech.

    What's the difference between these CPU coolers?

    I'm sure there from the same factory but probably binned. The cheaper branded cooler could have more defects,like poor solder joints and grooves/bumps in base. The nickel plating on the spire would fill in any gaps in pipe to fin solder points and it looks like they resurface the base too. All...
