    c00face got a reaction from Jet_ski in Is Star Citizen a giant scam?   
    Topic is old, but I keep seeing people saying "Star Citizen" isn't a scam. How wrong can you be. Let me break down several types of scammers since I deal with them a lot as an investor and I want to shed light how these people operate in terms of "legality" and what they do to get by, by the skin of their teeth while still robbing you on your money. Robert is not a saint and he have in the past ripped people off of their money. That alone should give you a clear warning of his personality and what he's really after. Instead of trying fall for all the speculation talk, the features, this, and that... Understand that Robert has been accused of the same type of situation before.
     
    Lets skip all the details and go straight to his bank account. How much is Robert banking off of this crowd-funding and what he makes selling speculative products? He's net worth is $76 Million in USD. Let that sink in for a bit once you understand that they do not have a working product and yet, they're selling speculative products that you don't even own nor are you guaranteed to it. Chris Roberts has no background in gaming, the industry of gaming, how it works, and how it is run. Once he received the crowdfunding, it's by law that he shows work towards that project in which he receive that funding for. In essence, he can claim to have started something, but never give you a working product, ever. They can keep this going year by year while still getting paid because morons are still purchasing their speculative products from their website and he's getting paid millions a year off your money, and you have nothing to show for it.
     
    What is speculative product? Think Bitcoin, think cryptocurrencies, think tulip mania. All they need is hype and a bunch of deceitful words to "promise" you that they are "working" on something. I can go on-and-on about this situation and how regular normies get caught up in such hype and retardation, that they don't realize how they are in-fact being scammed while the scammers are doing it legally. Lets get something straight, they are working on the product, the problem is, they themselves know this game is a massive let-down and every hype BS they come up with to make the game more appeasing, is just that... BS. They will keep doing this, keep selling their speculative trash products until the game is finally released in 2030. By then, they already made their money, and it doesn't matter if the product is trash when it's finally released, they wouldn't give care because they made their money by scamming you legally for 20 years.
     
    It's time to stop calling games like this, "legit" because it is not. Deception, fraud, and lies can all work under the legal system. Just because they're doing it legally, doesn't mean what they're doing isn't wrong. I suggest you all stop funding this game, stop purchasing their speculative products, until they DELIVER on their words. Until then, call it fraud and marketing scam.

    The excitement to put everything together and new GPU. Bought the new COD MW, started Overwatch again, testing out some new MMO. Then I realize, how boring it all is. Is this the effect of old age? Feels like I just wasted money on PC and buying new games. Genuinely starting to lose interest in playing games, it doesn't feel entertaining at all.

    c00face got a reaction from MultiGamerClub in (Solved) Experiencing "No video input/No signal", pc just idle's. Can it be the 1070?   
    GPU failures will cause PC to force a restart or force a shutdown. PC is just running idle while monitor display "no video input." That's not signs of GPU failure, could possibly be faulty ports or whatever cord your using or maybe just overlooked faulty monitor.
     
    You'll need to run GPU Stress Tester to see if it is in-fact related to GPU under heavy load. So find a GPU Stress Tester and see what happens.
     
    Part of underclocking your GPU, I wanted to know if your PC will perform normally when it's not underload. Also, getting that DVI cable will really help to determine if it's just bad video ports or just whatever cable you're running. DVI cable is essential anyways, should always have one laying around in times like this.

    c00face got a reaction from Kilrah in Is a core i5 3330 still relevant?   
    Intel in my experience just have better products. People can disagree all they want, don't really care. I've been down the AMD road for a while, and as far as I can tell, AMD has no longevity with their products. Look at their GPU and community forums, bunch of complaints on failing GPU's, and driver issues. Lets compare, we can liken AMD to American cars, and Nvidia to Japanese cars. And everyone who owns a Toyota knows how long those cars can last you even with high mileage. American cars? Not so much.
     
    That being said, Intel does work better with most programs, apps, etc... Since they been in the game longer, but their product is just overpriced. If you're looking for a more affordable lineup, then AMD is that route. But with affordable, you have to consider it might not be long lasting. I've owned an intel for well over 10+ years now it's still running. Can't say that about AMD. Last AMD product I owned, last roughly... 2 years and some months before I need to replace it.

    c00face got a reaction from Vejnemojnen in 1440p 75Hz recommendations   
    Need a little more detail on what you're trying to accomplish here. Cheap, affordable, quality? If you're mostly just playing sims, RTS, and RPG's... A 1440p @75hz would actually be great. And I'll choose that over 1080p @144hz.
     
    $300 for 1070 ti msi with another year of warranty, sounds like a good deal to me. You can run 1440p @75hz with the 1070 ti pretty damn good.
     
    Rx 5700, rtx 2060's, 1080 ti, all of these cards are meant for 1440P gaming at 144hz. If you aren't going to game using them to what they were specifically made for, why not just settle for the more affordable 1070 ti that can run 1440p @75hz just fine? And to answer your question, yes, 1070 ti can run 1440p @75hz for years to come just fine.

    c00face got a reaction from KEIN NEIN in Need some information about ROPs in GPU Memory   
    I am not sure what ROPs are and how they associate themselves with the memory modules. I am tinkering with my R9 290 and the best solution is to replace the memory modules on the GPU. The problem was finding a more cheaper solution than spending $28 dollar on eBay for a used R9 290.
     
    The purpose of this project for me is to just to understand what I can repair and what I can't. It's a nice little learning project for me and I am having fun doing it. That being said, part of the goal is to find very cheap solution to repairing my GPU. After some research, I came to the conclusion that the DDR5 memory modules are the same on your PC memory stick as they are on the GPU. The question is, what stops me from actually just using the memory stick DDR5 memory module to replace the GPU DDR5 modules?
     
    That's when a person on another forum told me about ROPs. He said to his knowledge, ROPs are tied to each memory module and probably has some specific coding to each module. So what exactly are ROPs and how do they function and does ROPs not exist in a regular PC memory DDR5 module? (I would of asked that person on that forum, but apparently it shutdown as of today.)

    c00face got a reaction from Boby in Disappointed in Gigabyte, they refuse basic repair info   
    Not wrong to give no helping hand to a person who needs it. It isn't required by law. Doesn't mean it's correct morally or ethical, that's a total different subject. If you want to label things wrong and right by law, you're going to find yourself in a big bad of hurt.
     
    It isn't wrong for insurances company to deny you compensation for an injury until you take them to court and prove them liable. Here's a question for you, is it hard for someone to give out a 2 cent information on "pads" size? You're telling me that's liable for a customer to sue Gigabyte? Lol...
     
    Don't mistake it, it's douche-bag status on what some of these manufacture's are doing. I know this first hand.

    c00face got a reaction from sirlamchops25 in GPU Issue   
    Step 1
    Unplug all other GPU you have plugged in except a working one.
    Run your Windows normally and download Driver easy.
    Update each driver, specifically the Intel Watchdog driver and Interface Management.
    Restart your computer and press F2 or Del to go into your BIOS.
     - In your BIOS, turn on PCIe as priority.
    Uninstall all GPU drivers through Control Panel. Install DDU and reboot into safe mode to uninstall the rest of the drivers left behind.
     
    Step 2
    You need to inspect the card physically for any damages to capacitors, transistors, burnt marks, anything of obvious. To do this, you'll have to remove the stock cooler from the GPU and then reapply thermal paste. Clean the PCB with Isopropyl Alcohol and tooth brush. Wipe off any corrosion you see (if there's any.) Put back on the cooler, secure everything tightly, make sure everything fits in its place (you don't want to tighten a screw that will chip the PCB, it can cause a shortage.)
     
    Step 3
    Turn PC off, unplug cord, install the GPU. Turn it on and let it load. Make sure to use DVI to DVI instead of the HDMI. HDMI tend to black out display until you have the necessary drivers which will make it appear as if the GPU is dead.
    Contact Zotac tech support and ask for firmware upgrades. Make sure to write down the GPU- PN, SN, and SKU. They will and should send you the upgraded vBIOS for the card so you'll be able to flash it. More than not, this should actually get the card to start running again.
     
    Post any thing you observed here and we can take it from there. (Don't oven your GPU, just don't.)
     
    Things that is tricky and should be noted
    Not having a display on the card means you can't run the necessary flash vBIOS from Zotac and start diagnostic on the card or install the necessary drivers for it. If this is the case, you'll have to use both your integrated onboard while the GPU is intact with power. To do this, you'll have to go into BIOS, switch graphics to onboard rather than PCIe as the primary during load-up. You'll have visual through the onboard and you'll be able to apply drivers to the Zotac GPU because it is still attached and powered. The Ryzen 5 1600 doesn't have on-board graphics, so you'll going to have to find another work around.

    Good thing tho is I think know the problem now, remember I said the Gtx is also not working in the 1st pcie slot right? Well I got to work by not putting the card fully in the slot so my guess is the pcie is faulty.

    I have the same GPU, although from Saphire and drivers are a big issue. They go up and down in a rollercoaster. I don't even remember the last fully stable driver I had. Since 19.4.1 for me it's been ok-ish, although some games like AC Odyssey crash with them. 19.4.0 crashed the entire PC, due to messed up power configuration.
     
    It's the first AMD card I bought in a long time, and honestly with this quality of support, I think I'll go up with the extra cash and go team green next time.

    c00face got a reaction from kelvinhall05 in GTX 1080 crash   
    Seems to be an on-going problems with a lot of GPU's.
     
    Need some more information. It seems the only time it crashes is when you try to run a game, but if you're not gaming it works fine?
     
    System specs and running OS?
     
    Is the card overclocked or did it come overclocked by default?
     
    Newest GPU drivers up to date, all intel drivers up to date, and chipset driver up to date?
     
    Open your windows search and type in "reliability" an option should appear that reads, View Reliability History, what is the error, and the screen shot the error details.
     
    Go to the card manufacture website and see if they have some sort of BIOS firmware update for your card. If not, open a tech support ticket and ask for one and also detail the problem your having with the card.

    LG Socket 1150 isn't compatible with DDR4. If you want DDR4, you'll need to buy a new motherboard with the correct socket 1151 and new CPU. DDR3 is great and works fine and it's fairly cheap.

    c00face got a reaction from onlybuilt4cubanxlinx in Solving the Wattman issue with AMD and GPU crashing   
    --Sorry, long post, but if you want a possible fix to your AMD Wattman crashing issue, this thread is probably for you--

    After installing Windows 10, AMD older graphics series has been a pain in the ass. Wattman restored and crashing, screen flickering, display showing rainbow colors, and BSOD. I, like everyone else, label it a graphics card failure. But something wasn't adding up and I never threw my card away just in case. Fast foward a year and a half later, I reinstalled my card and it worked fine until just today, it all started happening again.
     
    I said to myself, "Probably is a dying graphics card." I decided to open up the card to inspect the hardware to see if there was any issue at all with the card itself such as burnt marks, cracked capacitors, etc... Nothing. I started cleaning areas where it looked like it could interfere with circuit or solders with the flow of electricity. Replaced the thermal coating for the GPU chip and added the Sapphire cooler back on.
     
    Then I noticed a small little switch on the side of the R9 290 card that I haven't noticed before. 
    Apparently there was a Quiet mode and an Uber mode on the 200 series. I did a quick search and realize Quiet mode is the normal mode while Uber increases power. And by default, it is set on Uber mode. I switched it to Quiet mode, plugged back in my R9 290... and just like that, the Wattman issue stopped, the flickering stopped, the BSOD stopped, and the rainbow display colors stopped. What in the flying f__k AMD? Are you telling me my previous motherboard crashed due to this setting that seems to be causing issue?
     
    Anyways, seems like the problem has subsided and is this the actual culprit? Also, I did some research and realize Sapphire Tri-R9 290 comes overclocked. This could possibly be why I was having so much issue before. Setting the card to "Normal mode" might of literally fixed the issue with AMD Wattman crashing and system failure. And to all who is reading, YES, it DID crash my motherboard, this Wattman issue. I suggest you don't ignore it like I did before until your motherboard goes dying and your left wondering wtf happened.
     
    --I'll come back in couple days after playing some serious Apex Legends to update if the problem is finally fixed. And my display and computer isn't restarting every 5 minutes.--
     
    Also, to point out, it seems all of the AMD cards comes with this side switch of Quiet mode and Uber mode. By default, it is set to Uber mode to my understanding. And this could be the issue with the Wattman crashing. Setting it to Normal mode "Quiet" fixed it for me at the moment. I'll update later during the week to see if this was the actual issue.

    There's a lot of reasons for this. It isn't so much because "they're good," although they are. In any team game what you need is synergy. The thing lacking in most LoL eSports team is synergy. Some players are either very aggressive, while others are very passive. These kind of play style never mix well. During critical team fights or critical macro plays, some players are just not on the same page and or when they try to force themselves to play that kind of play style they end up feeding due to their own nature.
     
    The mix up between Blabber/Jensen and Svens/Glue is that the synergy is there. Glue can play passive, hint why he choose very positional champions like Syndra and Malzahar. While Jen/Blabber are more aggressive, hint why they can play champions like Leblanc/Kindred. The idea between the swap is simple and very effective on a fundamental level. When a team learns how to counter an aggressive play style (TSM), C9 would have to swap Jen/Blabber out with Svens/Glue and the team play a more passive playstyle while having stronger macro (where TSM lacks macro game.) This strategy allowed C9 to defeat TSM during semi-finals.
     
    There's no magic into all of this. It's just core principles, regardless of what you hear the analyst say and what others theorize, in real life, you work better when you have someone you can bond with. That being said, "What is up with Smoothie?" Smoothie is one of those players that can adapt fairly easily. He can switch between aggressive play style into a more passive play style. The problem with Smoothie is that, the team needed something "new." The something new would mean a release of old players regardless of how good they are. This "newness" you can equate it to having fresh new clothes. You just feel on the top of the world with confidence when you step into a house party with beautiful girls because you "feel" and "believe" you look good. That goes a long ways, but these kind of scenarios does not last, just like new clothes will become old fairly quickly.
     
    With this in mind, there will come a time when C9 will flutter again and changes will have to be made again.

    So you're a meat eater because you choose to be? Why clown on vegans for choosing to eat plants? If nobody is on you for eating meat and vegans have to tolerate 24/7 advertisement of meat everyday, why can't any of you tolerate someone wanting to eat only vegetables? You think people chose to eat vegetables because it feels good? People do it for all sorts of reason, some for empathy towards animals, some do it for health reasons because their body is failing, and some do it because they want to overcome their own addiction to eating in general.
     
    This idea of, "Vegan, no logic, hahah!" Need to quit. Nobody gave you any attitude when you ate your meat, leave the vegans to eat what they choose, it's their own life.
     
    As for OP, honey is not meat and have a lot of health benefits when taking into consideration. I would definitely include it into your diet as a vegan. The idea that, "It hurts animals," tell them to shut up. If you are empathetic to the bees and animals, then they have wildflower honey which is collected from wild flowers and not from bees.

If you're hanging out with them and you're eating meat, you should be ready to hear some criticism from them because you're hanging out with them.
