    Pagefile confusion. Windows 10.

    My pagefile was system managed, it was set to 1GB. Using MSI Afterburner to monitor pagefile it reports usages around 10GB in some games. Is that an accurate reading? So pagefile is set to 1GB but it uses 10GB? How is that possible. When it says using 10GB, where is that 10GB being used? My...

    System stable with B150, but not with Z170 or Z270....

    You can see my system specs in my profile. My computer works issue free. But i recently was using an Asus Z170 Maximus VIII Hero motherboard, sometimes the system had trouble booting, especially if i unplugged the power cord, getting the system to boot again was a pain. Sometimes after a couple...

    PSU Whine when PC off.

    I built a new system, there was no whine at all for the first 6 or so days, and then now when i shut off the pc i hear minor whine from the PSU, but if i switch on the pc it goes away. I find it odd it wasnt there at first but now appeared. I changed settings in the bios to try and see if...

    GPU Core Clock drop + voltage drop

    So i recently had a Gigabyte Windforce GTX 970, now i have a Gigabyte GTX 980 Ti G1 Gaming. With both cards i have noticed a small drop in the max core clock when gaming, seems to always drop 13mhz, and the voltage on my 980 Ti drops a little bit. So at the moment my 980 Ti core clock is set to...

    Which variant of the 980Ti would you want?

    Personally my favorite model of video cards are the Lightnings from MSI. So i hope to see some 980Ti Lightnings surface sometime in June. I see that EVGA will have a Classified version of the 980Ti, so that appears to be the current best version i would be in the market for, and if there turns...

    Why cant fans operate in both directions?

    So when you mount a fan, the airflow goes in one direction, and to change the direction you need to unscrew the fan and turn it around. I wish you could just make the fan spin in the other direction, so clockwise instead of anti-clockwise, so then your airflow would push rather then pull, or...

    i5 4690K @4.5GHZ @1.189v

    My system specs can be seen in my avatar to the left. Before today i had my CPU multiplier set to 40, and the voltage the motherboard had set automatically was 1.082-1.090v. That was at load, but went down in idle. Today i set the multiplier to 45, and then the voltages jumped to 1.280 or so...

    My first experience with a faulty SLI bridge

    So i was playing a game with SLI, and i noticed odd black flashes randomly occurring on screen. I just kind of ignored it and kept playing as it was only visual and nothing more. But of course i was intrigued/worried. Then after that gaming session i came back into the same game and the black...

    Tested a game with 5K DSR + 4x Super Sample...

    And on the menu it was running like 0.1fps, it was so slow i thought the PC had froze, but it was just processing frames so slow it looked frozen. Anyway my VRAM was maxed at 3GB, my motherboard ram had used 7.5GB out of the 8GB i have installed, and SSD pagefile was using 15GB. Ive never seen...

    Whats the deal with PC Voltages?

    So my CPU can use about 1.09v at most, seems each of my video cards use 1.2volts? But my DDR3 RAM uses 1.5v, so umm why does RAM use more volts if its just simple RAM, meanwhile a complex GPU pumping 4K gaming is only using 1.2volt. It seems odd how the higher performing hardware requires less...

    SLI: Top GPU as #2 and Bottom GPU as #1

    So usually i put a gpu in the top motherboard slot and it reads in the system as gpu1, and then the second gpu i install reads as gpu2. But for some reason now the top gpu is #2 and the bottom card is seen as #1. I don't see any negatives from this, everything is working as it should, but its...

    FPS and Frame Latency observations

    I played Sniper Elite V2 and Metro Last Light, my fps hold 60 through the whole session, but frame latency spikes can be seen, they appear as micro stutters while playing. I can only assume times when latency rises is when the game is perhaps preparing something in the level, making new enemies...

    MSI GTX780 Gaming Edition Overclocking Troubles.

    I have an MSI GTX780 gaming edition card. And it seems MSI have kinda done a new dodgy thing in regards to the overclocking. By default the card runs at 901mhz. Now before you could just OC with Afterburner, but now you gotta install an additional little app to allow overclocking. If i slide the...

    CPU Waterblock Weight Effects Temps?

    My cpu waterblock is a koolance block, and it weighs 160g, but i see other blocks weigh 400g, and my 160g block dosnt get very good temps. I have my i5 3570k at 4ghz, with 2xgtx680's, being cooled by 2x360 rads, and my gpu's load temps hardly reach 50 in high end gaming, so the gpu's are...

    60FPS on 120HZ Screen.

    I understand that 120fps on 120hz would look best, but unless you have 3 or 4 680's i cant keep 120fps in todays games with high/ultra settings. So i was thinking if i used nvidias adaptive vsync, at half refresh rate, then games would be capped at 60fps, which is a framerate i can hold with...
