    Asus Strictly RX470 throttling problem

    This may seem like a flippant or generic response however in similar situations with similar symptoms, I found a driver had been corrupted (not so obviously). Reinstalling a driver would fix it.

    gtx1080 a good buy right now?

    A much better investment than the two 970s and it will still last you at 1440p for a number of years. The issue is that it won't hold 96+ fps consistently in a lot of intensive titles (or ones that are CPU bound). My advisement is to ensure your CPU/RAM/Mobo combination is strong and somewhat...

    SLI with different cards

    @All Happy 4th of July (belated) and thanks to everyone again for keeping this thread alive. It must be getting close to the longest active thread on TPU? I have been far removed from this since getting involved with it years back. It would be good if someone else would take over the publicist...

    Second router in AP only mode, cannot remember/find it's IP address!

    Thanks again all. I did try everything that was suggested and it could still not see the device, therefore did a reset. Samir is correct, it's great for security and a pain when you forget it!

    Platform upgrading in 2018, for the main purpose of RAM?

    Thanks all, based on your comments and Vario's extra information about the CPU issues, I will wait. It may turn out that the best thing to do is get the the monitor first and see how it goes. Gsync may make most of the issues dissipate on it's own, however what I do need to find out from a user...

    Platform upgrading in 2018, for the main purpose of RAM?

    Agreed, and even worse 32gb of RAM is stupidly high cost. You can literally buy a Coffee lake high end CPU and motherboard for less than the RAM. I don't feel this will change any time soon; though what did you mean by the vulnerabilities? So far I had gotten on my list : Intel - Core...

    Platform upgrading in 2018, for the main purpose of RAM?

    The key thing to note is that tight timings /latency was all the rage, however that feels like a legacy concept left over from the DDR/DDR2 era. And it's only recently that it seems it's making a significant difference where real world performance is concerned. I wouldn't believe it otherwise...

    Platform upgrading in 2018, for the main purpose of RAM?

    Actually, from what I've observed, high end/high speed DDR3 is more costly than your average DDR4 of similar speeds. I presume it's because it is becoming more rare. The other drawback is that I suspect DDR 3 vs DDR 4 apples to apples on speed favors DDR4 because of architecture upgrades...

    Platform upgrading in 2018, for the main purpose of RAM?

    I am a bit out of the loop with AMD's efforts to play catch up this past few years.

    Platform upgrading in 2018, for the main purpose of RAM?

    Thanks that's very kind. You are right, and I would not base it on ARK alone - I know it has it's unfair results in overall performance. And the reality is, my current system is pretty darn capable. My VR and other 1440p experiences at 96+hz has been impressive which is why I won't ditch this...

    Platform upgrading in 2018, for the main purpose of RAM?

    I must have three or four of these threads going back to when I built this current system. And someone *coughKnoxcough* is probably going to say 'but hey you claimed Sandy Bridge is the best ever!' Though...getting back into more VR games and GPU intensive titles such as ARK (among others), I'm...

    Old Monitor taking too much time to get signal

    Maybe related? I have something similar on an OC Korean monitor where when it's cold in the morning, it has a sort of black screen door effect on it, that starts to peel away as it warms up is the best way I can describe it. I have not figured out how to resolve it other than reducing the time...

    Big thank you to every one whom has stayed active and kept this thread alive. This really is a great example of a community driven effort. Please accept a personal apology from me as I have not been involved with this in quite a while now.

    Denuvo's Latest Version Resists Piracy's Attempts Entering 2018

    Unless trying to avoid having to use online services(Steam, Ubisoft, etc) why would we need executable cracks these days? Games no longer require a CD to play, which is why it was called a "CD" crack. Denuvo and whatever Croteam use are extremely potent and do their job nicely.

    Operation Coffee Lake is Underway

    Awesome, well here's hoping the purchase of a new platform is worth it. I am still hanging onto my Sandybridge because let's face it, nearly seven years on and it's still the best CPU out there ;)

    Second router in AP only mode, cannot remember/find it's IP address!

    My topology is Cable modem > WNDR3700 > RT-N56U > Zyxel switch. The WNDR3700 has it's wireless disabled and the RT-N56U is purely an access point for the wireless internally. I hid the SSID(s) for on the N56U and while I remember the names of them, I have two issues: 1. When attempting to...

    Converting analog to digital for bluetooth use

    I have a Asus Xonar Xense with AKG K612 cans on Monacor SA-100 (and some other amplifiers). Therefore the setup is soundcard > amplifier > headphones. I was interested in going fully wireless with Bluetooth until it occurred to me that I'd be bypassing the sound card and the amplifier...

    EDIT: Solved by reinstall While I used media creation tool to download Win 10 again and simply reinstall over the current system - which has resolved the issue. I did note others had a similar problem and it was something possibly of the following two: The new Windows Defender...

    Replacing SSD; another SATA, new board with M.2 or PCI E

    That's an excellent little project, however the requirement to always have the USB stick in to boot, is not something that works for me. I may just wait until I upgrade to a motherboard that supports it natively. Thank you though.

    Replacing SSD; another SATA, new board with M.2 or PCI E

    A little update here. I purchased a Samsung 850 Evo M.2 NVME drive and a M.2 <> PCI E adapter(it's a dual slot, one for M.2 to PCI-E and the other is M.2 to SATA). So far on this MSI Z77 board, it's not showing in BIOS or windows. The board hasn't any M.2 or PCI-E 'boot' features or...

    Lapel vs desktop microphone

    I bought that Neweer kit that included the phantom power and some other pieces, then an additional 15cm pop filter and a desk clamp spring arm. It was cheaper than a mini yeti or whatever that ball version is, and I suspect will turn out to a little better. Thanks all

    Lapel vs desktop microphone

    @Bill_Bright My comment about phantom power/power source was in regards to condenser type microphones not being loud enough unless powered. It's like an amplifier for headphones that need a lot of power to drive them. Really I want a semi quality hands free microphone solution that will work...

    Lapel vs desktop microphone

    Isn't the way to mitigate audible level issues on a desktop microphone, by using phantom power? In terms of wireless microphone with headset, I haven't found any. @Kursah I was aiming at this or something very similar...

    Lapel vs desktop microphone

    I'm trying to get back into doing some recordings as well as voice comms for games. I've been using in ear bud headphones for a while, and would prefer not to go back to a standard headset arrangement. I am curious if a half decent desktop condenser microphone, or a lapel microphone would be...
