  1. This happened to me but with my fx6300 the other day. Turned out to be 1 bad stick of ram. Bought a new set of 16gb ram. Worked like a charm
  2. I have an xmp option on my gigabyte 970 ud3-p motherboard. It's under advanced memory settings, extreme memory profile (xmp)
  3. Do you have corsair cue software running for anything. I read somewhere that right now they don't play well together.
  4. woah woah there buddy....i love my V10. its my precious!
  5. I am using a gigabyte 970 ud3p and fx6300@4.6ghz with medium Llc. It's stable as a rock
  6. As rock make great boards, have used 3 in the past. Never had issues with them and they give a terrific bang for the buck
  7. It's because when you Uninstaller the game your mod folder is still left behind. Delete the skyrim folder in the steam directory
  8. X3:Albion Prelude and X-Rebirth, I really enjoy those games
  9. I run a 1080 and a 1050 monitor with no issues. Run DDU and wipe all the drivers. Then reinstall the amd ones.
  10. Ok so say 30-40% . I don't care the exact number, but either would be a decent increase over the 380. But as I said, the Op should only upgrade if they feel that they aren't getting the performance they want. You going to nitpick over 5%? Lol. And I knew that number when I was looking to upgrade my r9 280x on my son's computer, decided not yet. As he plays alot of minecraft.
  11. The 480 and 1060 would give about a 45%increase over the 380. Not a small increase if you ask me. Op: only upgrade if you feel if you aren't getting the performance you want. The 380 is still a decent card
  12. It's fine. Might sound a little loud but the fans will be fine. Play with the fan curve to find your ideal temp/noise levels
  13. I had an Asus r9 280x. Under load it hit mid 80s without a custom fan curve.thats perfectly normal. The danger area is 95+ for Hawaii cards. I used a custom fan curve and at 60% fan it never went over 80. Use after burner.
  14. I used to have a gtx 280. For minecraft it's fine as long as you don't use any heavy texture mods. It will struggle then. Also be warned mine did run very hot, but in the day it was a powerhouse for gaming.
  15. R9 380. Same performance, lower price https://m.newegg.com/Product/index?sdtid=9611900&SID=af700ef2cd6a11e6b9d9663bec8240840INT&AID=10440897&PID=1225267&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-cables-_-na-_-na&itemnumber=N82E16814131703
