  1. 1. Shouldn't manifest this way. 2. Possible explanation. 3. Possible explanation. 4. Definitely not, your system meets the requirements. 4. That wouldn't manifest this way. Another explanation would be driver issues. I'd suggest you check your GPU/CPU temperatures first though.
  2. Ryzen 2700x Cooling question

    Preapplied paste is usually not that good.
  3. Did they specify which year's Computex? In seriousness, I would recommend always taking such estimated release dates quoted at trade shows with a big grain of salt. Things very often get delayed.
  4. Those are basically separate things. Tesla can seek compensation etc. via civil courts, and prosecutors can seek prison etc. in criminal court. One does not preclude the other, and Tesla has no formal power over whether criminal proceedings take place.
  5. EU Internet at Risk

    I hope the fact that the committee passed a pretty extreme proposal lowers the chance the parliament as a whole will pass it. But it's getting pretty scary now.
  6. Nvidia 690 vs R9 290 @ 5760*1080

    The R9 290 has twice the effective VRAM and no multi-GPU scaling issues. Definitely the better choice.
  7. It will probably be a lot easier for you to tell once you have it installed. 3 feet might do it, maybe 6 feet.
  8. The headset has a 5m (~16ft) cable to the link box, and then another 1m (~3ft) of cables connect to the PC. I think you'll be wanting some short extensions, so you have room to move without the cables pulling on you.
  9. Look at the OP, Intel explains it on the slide. It improves performance in some situations, while reducing performance in others. Overall they must have found the positives outweigh the negatives. The slide explains why they did it. And it's not like it breaks existing code, just some of it might run a little slower while other code would run a little faster. 14x slower only applies to this particular latency, and code doesn't just consist of PAUSE. The performance impact on real code would always be considerably less than a 14x slowdown. They explain how it would positively impact existing code too...
  10. 140mm PWM Case Fan suggestions!

    If your motherboard has PWM fan headers, I would go with fans that support PWM as well. It's not strictly necessary, but it will give you a wider range of RPMs (so your computer can be quieter when idle).
  11. When does it count as a new PC?

    Philosophers have argued over this question since long before computers existed. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ship_of_Theseus
  12. Steam is ridiculously outdated

    Valve time is why. In any case, none of their competitors are any better. They actually tend to be worse. So it's not like there's a big incentive for them to improve.
  13. Bitcoin is up 151% since 1 year ago... Ethereum is "only" up 41% since 1 year ago.
  14. You would definitely have to increase the timings. Usually it's best to increase them by a lot at first, and then once you've found stable clocks you can start trying to reduce the timings. They won't go as low at 3200 as they do at 3000 though.
  15. Would you prefer the police could get away with breaking the law, even though they're the ones who are supposed to uphold it?
