    Installed new GPU, CPU/MEM 96-100%, Apps running slower. PSU?

    Hi, I'd re-install windows if you haven't already. Secondly, are you running the games at higher resolutions/settings with the new card? It's possible that streaming at higher quality settings may be slowing your system down. And lastly, 6 gigs of ram is borderline too little, even if you're at...

    Headset for gaming need advices

    You'll probably hear it from someone else or read on it, but the Beyerdynamic DT770's 80 ohm is probably the best for that price range. They have some fantastic imaging, letting you know where things are coming from. I've been using them for a solid several years and have come to appreciate what...

    Asus Xonar STX stopped giving headphone sound or mic recording

    Solved: My sleeved MOLEX connector came undone and couldn't deliver power to amp. Reconnected power and everything runs fine.

    Asus Xonar STX stopped giving headphone sound or mic recording

    Hello, I've had an Xonar STX for about 4 years. I am very familiar with the card. I installed my new GTX 970s last week and since then the headphone and audio jack stopped working on the sound card. I bought a new Xonar STX thinking that was it, but that didn't work either. I've tried all...

    Beware of 4k misleading advertising and SLI "Resolved"

    Well, if anyone comes through and reads your post, they'll be misinformed. I think it's important to get the right information out to people. Plus, you made it sound like legitimately you felt like all your effort and time was wasted. All I wanted to do was to let you know it's salvagable and...

    Beware of 4k misleading advertising and SLI "Resolved"

    Not sure what you mean. No video card has HDMI 2.0. Not that I know of, maybe I'm wrong. HDMI 2.0 was ratified until September of 2013, but the 7xx series was well under way by then and already had HDMI 1.2. No cards will have HDMI 2.0 until the next generation, MAYBE. To get one card working...

    Beware of 4k misleading advertising and SLI "Resolved"

    One of your first posts says SLI doesn't work on 4k. "Just a heads up. After spending thousands of dollars building my system to be 4k capable and Nvidia recommending going sli for 4k.. Turn out sli doesn't even work in 4k.." That's what you said. Go look. I was just letting you know you can...

    The ROG Swift is here in the USA!

    Then I guess the millions of us who say that must be on to something. As if we're maybe right. Secondly, you didn't answer the question. On a scale of "Never" to "Literally all the time" how often do you sit at a 40 degree angle off axis to your monitor?

    The ROG Swift is here in the USA!

    How often do you stare your monitor at from a 40 degree angle? I'm sure that most people stare at their monitors head on.

    Yeah but can the case itself run Crysis?

    Trying to lower RPM on 3 pin Corsair fans

    I have the Hero Z87 from ASUS. Are you sure that a motherboard header will let me use lower RPMs than Corsair Link?

    Trying to lower RPM on 3 pin Corsair fans

    Hey TPU, You've never failed me in the past, so I hope you can help me now :x I had a few extra bucks to blow so I picked up two Corsair SP120 fans with the colored rings to put on my H80i and replace the static fans. Except I didn't read the fine print and in came 3-pin, non PWM fans. I...

    Can I get an expert's opinion on RAID 0?

    So while I have every one's attention, I started doing more research for the fastest possible single SSD solution. Since I last looked in 2011, you bought Samsung or Intel for reliability or OCZ for speed. I haven't looked since and I'm wondering if anyone has input on this? The Sammy 840 Evo...

    Can I get an expert's opinion on RAID 0?

    Thanks guys, lots of wonderful feedback. I'll go with a new higher density SSD. Much appreciated.

    Can I get an expert's opinion on RAID 0?

    Hey there TPU, I've done the reading and the research but I wanted to reach out to the community to ask if maybe someone may have more insight or even first hand experience. For reference, I use an Asus ROG z87 Maximus Hero motherboard that I think supports TRIM in RAID 0. So I have a Sammy...

    SSD disappears and reappears... like magic.

    After doing 4 (that's right, 4 not an exaggeration) fresh installs of windows on two different drives, my motherboard fails to find any boot managers. I flashed the bios already. After one or two reboots, I get the "windows failed to load because of device is inaccessible" Help :(...

    SSD disappears and reappears... like magic.

    Yes, different cables have been used. Thank you for reminding me to check SSD health. Used SSDLife and it's fine. So now I'm onto the motherboard, which 100% recognizes all of my other drives all of the time, just not the boot drive. How do I reset BIOS? -P

    SSD disappears and reappears... like magic.

    Hey TPU, I already touched base with a few people but I wanted to get as much input as possible. I'm rocking several drives (HDDS and SSDS) on a Hasswell platform. Currently my boot drive is an OCZ Vertex 2, which has been with me since my days in college. Last night I moved all my...

    SSD Fail???

    Hey, I'm having the same problem right now. Just to confirm, with the PC powered off, you'd disconnect the SATA cable from the mobo, reconnect, boot on, and it'd be detected and bootable? Upon restarting your PC the drive would disappear? Is this the problem you were having? Cause that's...

    Unusual driver issue with ATI

    Hi TPU, Just to cut to the chase, I've dealt with all sorts of driver issues in the past and have gotten them to work no problem. This one has me stumped. For reference, MSI R7870 2GB in XFire. Running on 13.11 Beta 4 I ran everything perfectly fine with no problems. We're talking upwards of...

    Bios will not save boot order

    Hi Guys, Thanks for the input. A quick update, my computer is booting fine. It used to give me the error message associated with the boot manager not being detected. Oddly, here are the steps that worked... If I were to go into bios, I won't see my boot drive. If I power off, disconnect...
