    Terrible frame pacing with Gsync on

    I noticed that when i have gsync on, i have absolutely terrible frame pacing in all games. My monitor is freesync AOC 24G2U 144Hz, but gsync wotks on it. I limit game framerate usually to 60 in nvidia control panel, and monitor refresh rate is at 144Hz. This eliminates tearing in all games...

    RTX 2080 Super fine tuning, undervolting + overcloking results

    I had fun the other day with fine tuning my MSI RTX 2080 Super Gaming X Trio. I did really extensive testing live on my twitch channel with Unigine superposition 1080P high benchmark. Streamed using Very fast X264 encoder in OBS, but it still affected GPU score in benchmark. But hey, every bench...

    I had my RAM at 3800MHz CL 1.4V. For 4000MHz with same latencies i had to raise it to 1.43V. Is that safe for 24/7 usage?

    24" UHD IPS monitor

    Can someone recommend me a good 24" UHD monitor with IPS screen? I have 2 x 24" monitors now on one dual monitor stand. One is 1080P 144Hz with freesync. Other is 1080P 60Hz TN crap. I would like to replace it with a 24" 4K IPS. So i can play competitive games on 1080P 144Hz one, and other games...

    CPU per core frequency monitoring

    Can someone recommend me program that can track all per core CPU frequencies. I know OCCT can do that but it shows some weird results when i try per core overcloking in ryzen master on 5900x. Hwinfo displays only frequencies for 6 cores. Anything else out there?

    RAM overcloking on ZEN 3

    I had ZEN 2 CPU. Ryzen 5 3600. And i could overclock my RAM to 3800MHz and get 1900MHz infinity clock with stable 1:1 ratio with memory controller clock. Now i have ZEN 3 Ryzen 9 5900X. So since AMD promised increase of infinity fabric clock to 2000MHz, i decided to OC my RAM to 4000MHz. I OC'ed...

    Ryzen 9 5900x or R 9 3950X for video encoding

    I don't know which one would be better for encoding in OBS. 12 core /24 thread ZEN 3 5900X or 16 core/ 32 thread ZEN 2 3950X? 5950X is too expensive for me.

    Confusing ZEN 2 voltages

    Idk what is going on with reported voltage of my R5 3600 CPU. When i boot to BIOS, it says CPU voltage is 1.460V. In windows CPU-Z reports 1.408V, OCCT reports 1.41V, Ryzen clock tuner reports 1.250V, and Ryzen master reports 1.3V current and maximum because that's what i manually set for my OC...

    Hey. I just pre-ordered the upcoming HP Reverb G2. Should arrive to me in late November. Sold my Rift S earlier this year and this thing seems like a nice upgrade.

    Xtreme tuner questions

    Hey guys. I just downloaded KFA 2 Xtreme tuner utility. I am familiar with MSI afterburner and EVGA precision, and i have used both extensively for overclocking my 1080Ti and RTX 2060 Super. However, unlike MSI and EVGA utilities, Xtreme tuner allows me to set Voltage on my RTX 2060 Super. But...

    Questions about RAM OC

    I never bothered with overcloking RAM before. Now i built a new PC (under my specs) and since there is pretty much no point in OC-ing ryzen CPU's, i decided to torture RAM instead. :laugh: Ram is Crucial Balistix Sport. 3000MHz XMP. CL 16. I OC'ed it to 3800MHz CL18. Is that good? What is more...

    I bought a used RX 580 8GB card. Only to find out it has been flashed with damn mining BIOS. How do i flash it with normal BIOS? It is MSI Gaming + RX 580 8GB. I know i need this tool called atiflash. Downloaded that and it just says "cannot find discrete ATI video card."

    Logitech G502 proteus core or Roccat Kone Aimo

    I am looking to buy a new mouse. Can't decide between Original Logitech G502 or "new" Roccat kone Aimo. They cost pretty much the same here (Croatia). Anyone has any experience? I read that the build quality on Aimo is very high. But i don't think G502 is far behind. I need it for FPS gaming and...

    Upgrade for i7 3930K?

    I decided to upgrade from my i7 3930K CPU. Which requires a new MBO and RAM. Which CPU do you think would be a good upgrade? I am fine with either intel or AMD. I do a lot of Twitch streaming so video encoding capabilities are important. Thank you.
