  1. Thanks for your help, guys!
  2. Hi everyone, I recently got the go to update to Windows 10, however whenever I try to update , it always reboots back to the desktop with my current version of Windows installed. I did some digging around and apparently, my PC is missing some key OS files, and I assume I can't upgrade unless I have all the files I need. I've decided to do a reinstall of Windows, however I'm not sure how the process should go. I'm going to boot off a USB and will reinstall from there, however I'm not sure if I will need to put in my CD key again, as it should already be tied to the computer. Will I need to reactivate my CD- key if I'm reinstalling? Any help I can get is much appreciated!

    290x replacement

    Performance wise, how much less or more performance would it be compared to a GTX 970?

    290x replacement

    Hi guys, Earlier today my 290x bit the dust and now I need a replacement. I was considering the GTX 960 but I realized that's a step down. I don't want to spend more than 400$ U.S for a new card. Anything out there that's the best. And for the buck? Any input I can get is greatly appreciated!

    Is my GPU finished?

    Hi everyone, I was using my computer earlier and noticed my GPU fans weren't spinning. I went into MSI afterburner and indeed the fans were all set to 0. I changed the speeds manually and it seemed to work, however whenever I put it into auto mode. they just stayed at where I last set the fan to. I then shut down the computer and checked to see if the PWM fan was connected all the way to the headers which it was. Then, upon switching the PSU back on and then pressing the power button, the GPU fans spun for half a second. With an audible pop, hiss, and then a puff of smoke from the PWN wire with the wiring looking like it spit open (which upon inspecting it did) my PC shut down. Which now leads me to believe my GPU is dead, however somewhere in my mind I doubt it. What do you guys think? I've never had this happened to me before and was wondering if I can still salvage my card. Which is by the way an MSI 290X with an Arctic Accelero III aftermarket cooler. Any input and help I can get would be greatly appreciated! Attached is what the PWM wire now looks like
  13. Hi everyone, I recently got done changing the reference cooler of my 290x with an aftermarket cooler from Arctic. Cooler does what it's suposed to, however whenever I play a game or do a benchmark I start to hear coil whine. Playing games is not as noticeable, but when I benchmark it becomes much more audible. Below is a link of a video for the problem I'm currently facing. If anyone can help me solve my problem I would appreciate it very much! https://vid.me/uISe
  14. Ahaha, no not planning on overclocking, just breaking in a friend's chip is all.
