  1. Well, here's the thing. It doesn't stop even when I load up the GPU. I don't have an iGPU either, my system is: FX 6300 CPU (clocked to 4GHz) Sapphire HD 7950 Asus m5a97 le r2.0 motherboard 16GB DDR3 1866MHz I have tried to have the overclock be a thing for just certain games since it didn't flicker in a game the very first time I tried to overclock, but now it does it regardless of what I'm doing. Whether it's idling or under load, the flickering continues. And sometimes it's on my main monitor and sometimes it's on my second. I first thought it might have been because both monitors are connected via DVI and maybe that didn't like it or something, but I guess there's no fix for it at all is there.
  2. Hiya! I recently acquired a new PC and noticed that with overclocking both the CPU and GPU I could get some pretty decent extra performance without too much extra heat, all within limit and it's pretty good. Except for one thing. When I change anything that's not the fan speed I get this weird display issue where part of the screen starts flickering and (sorry if this explanation doesn't make much sense, I don't know how to explain it) sort of acts like frames are being sent to the display that either the display can't make sense of or the GPU mixes 2 frames together? Part of the screen (always about the same part) looks like it's 2 frames conflicting. However when this happens, everything below the part that's glitching gets pushed down, but also not completely. It's a very weird issue that I get when changing the memory clock and or core clock frequency and I can't really see what the problem is. I don't know if anyone has experienced this issue as well and possibly knows of a fix for this? I'd appreciate any help since it's driving me crazy but the extra performance is so nice XD Thanks in advance everyone!
  3. Yeah I forgot to mention it would also need to be able to clone to a smaller disk, but is there nothing that can make a 1:1 clone to a smaller drive and also automatically resizes the partitions? It's actually the main reason I stopped using Clonezilla as I constantly ran into that problem. I actually have no experience with DD nor fdisk nor gdisk. I tried dd once but didn't exactly know what to do and ended up ruining my SD card. I'm willing to try though since gparted never really worked. Gparted always caused the bootloader to be messed up and I'd have to make a bootable USB with a Windows installation to tyr and fix that and the process was never consistent either.
  4. Hiya everyone! Hope I'm posting this in the right place ^^'> So, as you can guess from the title I'm looking for a free and portable drive cloning program. Preferably something that is Linux based so it has support for many different file systems and can be put on a USB using something like YUMI so I can add it to my multiboot USB. Now that my go-to software from AOMEI (partition assistant) has been changed so you now need to pay in order to clone a drive I don't really have anything I can use. I'm not a fan of easeus software as it's always a trial and I'm not about to pay for something I only use once every blue moon. So if anyone here knows a reliable Linux based drive cloning tool that works for both HDDs and SSDs I'd really appreciate it! Thanks for the replies!
  5. Is there no way for me to check the Powe draw or my GPU with some software? I'm guessing not since the radeon software already doesn't show it.
  6. Doesn't a 6-pin draw 75 and an 8-pin 150? That's what i read somewhere. My PSU is 500W and my CPU is 95. PSU has about 85% efficiency and when gaming it uses a little over 400, wouldn't that be the GPU at like 250 ish with some overhead due to inefficiency?
  7. Hi everyone! So, simply put, i'm not sure what the power consumption is of my card and how much headroom i have. I'm using a Sapphire HD 7950 Dual X 3GB With Boost (is apparently what its full name is). Somewhere I found it has a power consumption of around 180 to 200 watts but i'm not exactly sure if that's right. I asked Sapphire and someone there said it has a power draw of 350 watts (which I simply can't belive since it only has 2 6-pin connectors). So I'm just looking to figure out what the power draw of the card itself is since I don't know of a way to check it myself and there doesn't seem to be any info left about the power consumption on the web. Also if anyone knows of a reliable overclocking guide for this GPU or the GPU line it's part of I'd appreciate that Thanks for any answers!
  8. RTX 1050 Ti, I only now noticed I said RTX instead of GTX. Oops I blame autocorrect on that one XD But for coil whine, are you sure that's just from defective parts? Because I've heard Linux mention it in several videos and those weren't used parts either. Same as in the video SenKa posted, Alex also mentions the coil whine in there when the GPU has to work hard. (I know that's only coming from the GPU when it has to work but if I remember correctly PSUs can also suffer from coil whine even when they're new. Could be completely wrong about that though). It's also about how much ambient noise mixes in with the sound coming from your speakers. I know it's impossible to eliminate ALL ambient noise coming from lights, PC, equipment and just your general environment/everything in the room, But what I'm trying to achieve is as little ambient noise as possible. I'm not planning on recording anything like vocals or instruments or something like that, I just want to be able to focus as much as I can on the sound coming from my speakers since my ears are already rather sensitive. Currently I already have several things in my room emitting rather annoying high pitched sounds which are still quite audible even when trying to listen to whatever is coming through my speakers. Not really an option since I don't have a spare room to put it in and I also don't really want to do that to be completely honest. I honestly completely forgot about this one! I don't know how much of a price difference it would be if I were to do it myself. I do remember the Streacom DB4, I've seen that on Hardwarecanucks once but that case seems to have very limited availability. But I did forget about the Airtop 3.
  9. Hi everyone! As you can read from the title, i'm looking for help on a completely silent workstation. The main use for this workstation would be music production, some light video editing and some photoshop with maybe a little bit of gaming here and there, but it would mainly be for producing content. My problem is just that I have no idea if this is even possible. I currently have no parts selected but I have some requirements: At least an 8 core CPU (preferably AMD) At least 32GB of RAM GPU: something like a Radeon 5700 or RTX 1050 Ti is good enough And of course, completely silent. (as little coil wine as possible as well) To me it doesn't matter if it gets a bit on the bigger side but I want something I can put together myself, I don't want to buy a pre-built workstation. I don't know if it's possible to build something like this myself, so I hope there's someone who can point me in the right direction here. thanks for any answers!
  10. I'll be following the progress of Floatplane to see if it ever gets mentioned Maybe someday there will be a plan. I mean by the time i would even consider joining Floatplane it will already be out of beta and released to the public since i still have to start completely. But i'll keep an eye out.
  11. Yes of course there are better ways to start off. I mean starting off on YouTube is free (basically, if you don't count equipment costs and such) and Soundcloud is free up until a certain point. And this isn't meant for starting, i would only join floatplane if i knew it would actaulyl be profitable.
  12. Well i have been learning for the past 4 and a half years, and i have some friends who have done mixing and mastering for other artists. worked with bands, worked in studios and such, so if i have a question related to mixing or mastering i can simply ask them, and i can learn new things from them all the time which is neat. But i'm not into doing mastering and mixing for others, nor being a ghost producer. I want to make original stuff for myself, which is my plan. My question was simply that i wanted to know if music could actually be a thing on floatplane. I know a fan base is required if you want to make a profit.
  13. Hello everyone! I'm new to the LTT forum, my first ever post So i don't know where to really ask this question so i'm asking it here in the general discussion. My question is simple, i don't know much about Floatplane, so i simply want to know, how will Floatplane be for music producers? Will it actually be profitable for a music producer to join Floatplane one day or will it be better to stay with something else. This is all i want to know, if it will be profitable for a music producer to join Floatplane or not. Thanks for any answers ^^
