    This might be a little long but... So this all started when I was trying to make my xbox controller work with Dark Souls PTDE on my PC (I have a belkin bluetooth dongle that I used for this, which will become important later). I was only partly succsessful as the only buttons that worked with my controller in the game where A and B, in order to navigate the menus I had to use my mouse(did not manage to fix this so if you have any suggestions I'd really appreciate them). So I searched around on the internet, and found a video adressing this issue, This one: I did as the video said, and disabled my Hid compliant game controller in device manager. My PC then promted me restart which I did. So while booting I had my first BSOD - DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL - caused by wdf01000.sys. The pc restarted and had the same BSOD again. This continued right until I had the bright idea to remove my belkin bluetooth usb dongle, wich as it turns out actually fixed my issue. I then plugged the dongle back in after my pc had booted up and was greeted with the same BSOD as before. As a final test I tried plugging it into a different usb-port but that made no difference still cvaused a BSOD. So I suppose it's the dongle that is the issue. Is there anything I can do to make it work again or do I have to use my controller wired now? And do you have any ideas on how to make the controller work with Dark Souls, more than just the A and B buttons?
  2. So I should still worry even though the problem is gone for now?
  3. Oh dear... That I can do
  4. Its a GTX 1080. Since GPU Boost does such a good job at overclocking, I did not see much benefit in overclocking it myself. All I was doing was watching the E3 stream with a few other tabs and programs open.
  5. Video of what happened: So is this just a bad overclock, or is it something else? I've had this overclock for 12 months now though... Restarted the PC and now it's doing fine. It has been a couple of days since it happened. Edit: Its a CPU overclock BTW
  6. If you look at the case on the top left of the bottom image you can see that the casse has cutouts on both sides of the case. Seems unnecessary if one of the speaker grills is just for aesthetics.
  7. How is that an 8-pin? The two extra pins are unplugged...
  8. Title speaks for itself, is it worth the 10% difference in price?
  9. Yeah, the whole point of polaris was always touted as being the best fps per watt/per dollar budget GPU. But looking at the power draw, if I'm not mistaken, the card is as power hungry as a 1070, but performs like a 970... If nvidia gets their pricing right with the 1060, AMD is really gonna have a struggle selling 480s in my mind - wich let's be real, is really not what us consumers need right now with NV already enjoying a very comfortable lead on AMD.
  10. To me it really does not matter wich claims are true or not. If AMD had just gone with an 8 pin in the first place, many if not all of the genuine complaints would not be here today, wich in turn would certainly get rid of all the fake ones. Simply put: AMD brought all this bad PR on themselves. Edit: Oops double post
  11. Statement from sharkgaming.dk's facebook page: We have created some wrong claims regarding ASUS STRIX GTX 1080 OC, where we have told customers that we can not deliver the graphic card any time soon, because of no cards in production from ASUS because of a high RMA rate. So we recommended customers to cancel their orders. This is a misunderstanding from our side, and it is not the truth. It was an assumtion based on no deliveries. ASUS STRIX GTX 1080 OC is in production and delivery is only limited at this moment. We regret the misunderstanding and look forward to offer our customers the graphic card.
  12. Not sure how reliable this information is, but I just asked the people over at komplett.no - Norways biggest online tech store - if they had experienced the same issues. (I currently have an order there for the exact same product.) According to them they hadn't experienced anything abnormal with RMA numbers. Really hoping there's some truth to it as I've already been waiting a month for my card, and I still haven't got it and I most certainly don't want to send it back once I get it.
  13. My bad, it's in your original post...
