@FreedomEclipse et al, need some more music recommendations.
Just downloaded Lacuna Coil - Cybersleep. Looking for stuff of similar likeness, only not necessarily female singers. Been listening to the same old stuff for months on end. Need something new to listen to.
Here's a list of what I've got. Don't hate:
pain, unloco

edit: faith no more (new album incoming:rockout::rockout::rockout:)

@RCoon sorry for delays - Im working on a list right now.

In other news... http://www.techpowerup.com/209409/p...s-being-returned-over-memory-controversy.html

Not sure if i can be arsed to send my 970s back for a refund. They work fine for what i want it for and i dont go anywhere near 3.5GB but i do understand that the limitation affects how future proof it is. I may just ride it out and wait for the next best thing before stepping up

try some of this while you wait...





:EDIT:

have some more.

I honestly don't care. I know I should, and that I should be hurt that I was mis-sold specs. But truthfully and honestly, I have more important things to deal with, and this literally doesn't affect me in the slightest. I'm just going to drop money into savings for the next 6 months and upgrade to Skylake and DDR4 when I have enough money for a sensible but powerful gaming rig (same i5, 16GB ram, and second to top GPU).

I'll check out all that music tonight and tomorrow. Got the house to myself so I can make the most of my new sound system and sit back with a glass or two of Aberlour A'Bunadh

How dare you not vociferously attack Nvidia for their malevolent existence. You must be a NV fanboy, you so bad at being a human - you must love JSH, the mighty leader - you his love child - begone foul Nvidiot.

Back on planet rational however, if you bought the cards for 4k or 1440p+ high texture gaming then you have a right to be irked. On the flipside, my 3Gb cards hump 4gb cards at my res (1440p). I feel like trolling a 970 thread.......

Yeah, thing is, I gamed at 1440p quite happily on my 780 with 3GB, so I don't really mind so much. Maybe my card will get crippled when new games come out. I just don't have the drive and energy to return a card and buy a card that has the same performance with almost twice the power envelope. Or drop an extra £140 extra for minimal performance gain.

i dont have the energy to take the piss out of it either.

the ones who will take the bait are the die hard fan boys who are still happy to give them more money and those who it effects would get the hump while i feel for them :/

worst part for me is my mates who bought them have nearly all had this plague them in games while i sat on my 290x without issues...

Sure gibbo and 8pack are talented overclockers, but I seriously dislike OCuK, and that act they put on about being all about customer service and the "nice guy" of the hardware retailer world. They're overpriced and price gouge at any opportunity and sell some pretty useless crap. At least other retailers don't attempt to put on that front, but offer cheaper prices at every opportunity.

Yeah, Since my 970s came from OCuK, Im even more reluctant to send my cards away for a refund.

though OCuK has always been a little dodgy when it came to RMAs, the whole illusion of them improving was probably a placebo effect brought on by their buyout/merger with Caseking

gibbo has been using this to pimp ocuk all over the social media stating that they are offering refunds for unhappy customers so i would jump on that if you wanted to swap them out :)

gibbo has been using this to pimp ocuk all over the social media stating that they are offering refunds for unhappy customers so i would jump on that if you wanted to swap them out :)

and do what? trade up for 980s? lol. Theres not a lot of options really, AMD 290 or 295 runs too hot and power hungry for my liking. the problem with these 970s hasnt really affected me at all, Maybe its cuz i run them in SLi that the issue is slightly alleviated . Either way - upgrade to 980s - Nvidia wins. buy 290/295 - Hot and power hungry, Neither of which are desirable.

I think the best option is just to ride it out and wait until something better comes along.

Is this just a small portion of 970s that's got problem or something? I've yet to encounter any issues using just 1 970.
