  1. You should see the zombies who walk around NYC with their heads buried in the phones.... Damn kids!
  2. Both my brothers, at the time, worked for the company that put all the glass up. I sent them both the article, and laughed their asses off.
  3. You are kidding right? Most astronomical "listening" and "observing" are almost never done using audio or visual observations.
  4. Gpu-z let's you back it up also
  5. Faulty Asus R9 290 - Amazon Return issue?

    If you can run DDU and leave it with the stock vga windows drivers, did it stay stable? I had the same issue for a while. I found the problem in hwmonitor64 as when I installed the amd drivers I noticed the video memory errors were piling up. I upped the voltage a bit and it stopped.
  6. Faulty Asus R9 290 - Amazon Return issue?

    I have an Asus R9 290x, it is a pain in the ass. Just out of curiosity try bumping up the voltage in afterburner +13. Some reason mine needed a little extra juice to be stable.
  7. Verizon to lock phones in spring

    My wife's sprint service sucked on long Island. I had her switch to my Verizon plan. Vastly better here. Could also just be the location we live in.
  8. Compilation of Ryzen APU reviews

    Amen! This is my sentiments exactly! I am looking to make a budget build for my son, who is 11. With today's graphic card prices and ram prices, it would be virtually impossible. This apu just opened the doors to replace my htpc/light gaming computer (old one is an fx6300 and R9 280x) and give him my old htpc for some medium 1080p gaming. This will be perfect.
  9. The gpu is still good, I am still using one as my daily driver. Just don't get the Asus one. It has a POS cooler. Had to fit a h55 and a g12 to it due to heat issues. Most of the other aftermarket brands are fine though if I remember correct, especially sapphire. Avoid the blower styles if possible.
  10. R9 290x Black Screen After Boot

    Display driver Uninstaller.
  11. R9 290x Black Screen After Boot

    Did you use DDU and then try to reinstall the drivers?
  12. RIP my first graphics card, the 290x

    Didn't the xfx have a lifetime warranty? Give it a shot
  13. R9 290X Overheating & Artifacting

    What are the temperatures on the vram and vrm? What are his voltage settings? Did he undervolt or OC? Did he try rolling back the drivers and using DDU (I am not familiar with drivesweeper but I know DDU works great) ?
  14. R9 290X Overheating & Artifacting

    There is no way a 290x would be overheating and artifacting at 70c.the card is designed to run up to 95c.
  15. What's wrong with this thing?

    Also make sure windows is not set to power saving mode. Set it to balance or performance. I had the same issue once and found out that when I did a windows install it set it to power saving which caused a ton of stuttering in demanding games.
