    NVIDIA Releases GeForce 461.72 Game Ready Drivers

    Maybe the first one in the quote, is related to PC Halo MCC crashing while launching, when at the "XBOX GAMES" logo, where it's terminated unexpectedly, but is sporadic. The second one may be related to the shimmering I get in Unigine Superposition. (Both Radeon and GeForce, IIRC)

    PC will reboot sometimes when gaming

    Nothing but that usual "Critical" category message=Probably PSU, MOSFET or VRM issue. It's possible that the 8-pin EPS plug has poor connection. That looks like a case of voltage loss. Loss of RAM stability=Usually a BSOD with "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA", "BAD_POOL_HEADER" or "0x0000008E"...

    Bricked GPU amd 5700xt **no bios on card**

    It's starting to look like a failed VBIOS chip. (hardware) (Bad blocks (sectors) or flash controller failure.)

    Mint or HDD Gone Bad on Me?

    Well, I have the feeling that it won't hammer it like I suspect Windows 10 does.

    Mint or HDD Gone Bad on Me?

    Well, the size-increase recommendation is in case the SSD that the OP gets, can't handle or cope well with a lot of writes.

    Mint or HDD Gone Bad on Me?

    For SSD, you want bigger than 120 GB.

    Your PC ATM

    I like that setup, but the caps may be bad already in that Thermaltake Smart series 600W PSU. :( For those PSUs, I inspect them for bulging or leaking before powering it back up. (If you didn't just purchase the PSU super recently)

    2011: My daily driver was this-> Asus P5QL Pro motherboard-Core 2 Duo E4500 (Conroe)- 2 GB PC2-5300 DDR2 SDRAM-GeForce 9500 GT-FSP 500W-I mostly used a CRT for a monitor. I had two decent CRTs!

    Bricked RX5700

    You flashed the VBIOS incorrectly or you flashed an invalid VBIOS image. I've been there before!

    Rampage Extreme X48 LGA775 socket

    Socket 775 processors don't have IMCs, they were the last, besides 771 to use FSB. Back in those days, it seemed that motherboards made bigger differences in what was supported. Because the memory controller was on the motherboard chipset. Thus, a P45 motherboard will be better than P43, for...

    Rampage Extreme X48 LGA775 socket

    If it's DDR2, you'll be lucky to get 8 GB rock stable with the DRAM voltage set to 1.9 V and at 333 Mhz with all slots filled. (666/667)

    Ultimate ALIENWARE case mod (8 years old project reboot)

    As of December 5 of last year, still no RAM-related BSOD when a bunch of Windows updating tasks were ran.

    Ultimate ALIENWARE case mod (8 years old project reboot)

    So far, the 3 slots that define the channels, seem to be fine. That's why I got that 12 GB triple-channel kit in December.

    Wouldn't be surprised now if the upcoming ARM-based Apple Mac Books, end up being the better deal. :rolleyes:

    Well, I like it when I can unplug the separate router for troubleshooting.

    Is that a router-and-ONT-all-in-one?! If true, I dislike that setup. (not directed at you)

    980ti fluctuate pwr / core clock

    I had something like that happen back in 2016, with an eVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti and with Nvidia Inspector, found an Asus VBIOS on it! So to TPU, was exactly where I went! Then I found an eVGA VBIOS image with the 915 Mhz GPU clock, IIRC then I flashed that VBIOS on to it. Right after, it was like...

    Reminds me of a GTX 660 Ti that had a wrong BIOS flashed.

    5600X vs 10600KF

    Gosh darn it! They're unavailable here, it's like I live in another nation! As much as I like Ryzen, I ended up purchasing a Comet Lake build, with a 10600K and of course, a Z490!

    Ultimate ALIENWARE case mod (8 years old project reboot)

    Yes, I think it had that SAS controller, but it was rock-solid, worked like brand new! I changed it, because the BIOS wouldn't work properly, despite I can get into the OS and game with my Radeon RX580, because of an issue where it forgets CMOS settings when a Radeon RX580 is installed. But...

    Ultimate ALIENWARE case mod (8 years old project reboot)

    I love that case! Unfortunately, mine has failed LEDs or LED controllers. At least on the doors, so I removed the door ones completely. Also, the LEDs around the front ports, seem to have a poor connection. The one at the top still works fine. Since sometime in July, 2019 I decided to change the...

    The show off your tech related purchase thread

    Uh oh, reportedly, based on what I saw over at OCF, ones before week 48, are terrible news, prepare for sudden loss of stability.
