    Weird gpu memory clock issue 1080Ti [solved]

    I'm a bit confused here, most monitoring software seems to report the memory clock on my 1080Ti incorrectly. AFAIK the default memory clock should be 1376mhz, in Afterburner, GPUZ Sensor tab & HWInfo all show it as 1250mhz, the only place I see it being reported differently (1376) is the GPUZ...

    Mini-Log: Finishing 'Raisin'. From test bed to case.

    I almost didn't post anything but thought it'd be cool to have a mini-log of this build. So I finally got around to getting the waterblock fitted to my 1080Ti, and swapped out two of the shunt resistors to raise the power limit. It's some of the most butt-clenching soldering I've ever done! I...

    ITER progress (experimental fusion reactor)

    Just thought I'd post a recent video about the iter project, it seems to be coming along nicely. The video explains the basics of what they're trying to do, for those who haven't been following nuclear fusion technology. I'll keep an eye out for updates and post them here :)

    [FS][EU] AMD R7 1800x & HyperX DDR4

    For sale is my original 1800x, this was pre-ordered so is one of the early CPU's. I only used this cpu for a month or two at the most, and was replaced with a cherry picked on. It will do 4GHz on water but it requires ~1.44V (3.9GHz @ 1.38V). Temps have always been kept well under control, it's...

    WCG Projects favoring AMD / Intel

    Question: Since different projects work better on intel or amd (1800x seems to love scc, whereas 6700k and i3-4170 don't seem to do as well - taking into account core count obviously).. Are there any projects which run particularly well on intel? And is it possible to set a preference for a...

    [WTB][EU] SPDIF cable

    I'm trying to get the audio over HDMI to work with my GTX280, so it looks like I need the SPDIF cable for the card. Are the DVI-HDMI dongles all the same, as in will they all allow hdmi audio to work? I'm using the dongle from my brother's 9600GT. Cheers, Simon. EDIT: Got one :)

    Ghetto WC/TEC overclockin'!

    I was rummaging around in my room the other day and stumbled across my spare Swiftech Apogee waterblock, so I thought i'd have a bit of fun with it!

    4x 1GB Overclocking Help

    Hey, I've been trying and failing to get a decent overclock with the 4 dimms installed. I know that 4 dimms should reduce overclocking potential, but i seem to hit a brick wall at roughly 1000MHz, no matter what timings or voltages i use. Memory: Supertalent pc2-6400 (4-4-3-8) 1225mhz @ 2.3v...
