      PayPal Problem - Some payments not going through   20 May 2017

      PayPal appears to be experiencing problems at the moment, resulting in people being billed but the transaction showing as failed on our end. If you have signed up for a new subscription, and the transaction is showing as pending on the forum, so you haven't gained floatplane access yet, and you have waited more than 10 minutes after purchasing it in PayPal, please go to https://linustechtips.com/main/failed_transaction_fix.php and follow the instructions. If you have any issues, please send me a PM (hover over my picture or username and click "message"), including the transaction ID, and I will try and sort it out for you.

  1. probably something similar to what AMD has done with Buldozer and Ryzen, haveing sevral cores in one module
  2. get the RX 570 or RX 580 if you want to spend a bit more. both will smash basically any game at that resolution and if you step up to a 1080p screen then they will both be solid cards, but you wont max everything out with the RX 570
  3. well if it turns out that my R9 280x is dead im makeing it into a poweboard lol, perfect project for a novice solderer :P ima strap it to an AM3 motherboard i have around too and do some overclocking xD its going to be great

    1. TheRandomness


      Well, at least buildzoid did that guide :P

    2. Bananasplit_00


      he may or may not have been the one that told me to strap it to a motherboard :P 

  4. Razer is awful exept for the laptops if you have all the money in the world. keyboards, mice, headsets all shit. the only thing i like that they make is the Nostromo and the Orbweaver and i dont think they make them anymore. i love my K70, sortof, takeing it appart was hell and i litteraly had to break it open so i could repair it its still a kind of nice keyboard though im starting to get tired of Cherry switches as a whole tbh. anyway i wouldent use Corsair for mice and headsets, id rather have a logitec mouse and a decent headphone + mic combo like i have now, i use a Razer Nostromo Gamepad, Logitec G502 spectrum mouse, Corsair K70(original ) keyboard and Senhiser HD558s as my headphones paired with my Blue Snowball ICE. either get china stuff or get the stuff you know you will like.
  5. Accelero Xtrem IV probably but there is a special version for that card depending on when it was made: if its one of the top two get the normal one, if its the botom one then get the one called Xtreme IV 280(X)
  6. same here, thats half of what i do with my time. i just browse the Swedish used markets and see whats around. i have missed out on so many awesome things, like an I7 4790K, Maximus hero whateveritwasforlga1150 and 16GB of 1600MHz RAM for $350, the god damn $320 1080 and probably a few more, less spectacular deals just because i have just bought something else
  7. Update: well, there are good news and bad news well lest start with some good stuff first ehh? ok so i got back my R9 270x and my R9 280x that had been out for a bake and have been gone for 4 months now... never doing that again, anyway i have them now so i have better size refrenses for GPUs and i can take the coolers from them and mount on any RX 470 or whatever i get(probably not a 1050TI tho, just the RX cards) and i can turn the cards into powerboards or something unless i find something else to do with them, il probably try to sell the R9 270x seeing as it does work as a display adapter but has some green artifacts, which is better then when i sent it off atleast. the R9 280x is a Sapphire TriX and the cooler is about the lenght of the freaking toaster case but its also a freaking BEAST when it comes to cooling anyway i have some pictures i can put up later. onto the worse news, the LAN PC has not been sold yet, the dude says he is going to have the money "soon" and i booted up the motherboard and CPU again and yep, the VCORE reading in the BIOS was 1.72V... wow. i dont know if its the PSU or the motherboard but i wont be using this PSU anyway anymore and the motherboard i can exchange for another identical one that is basically brand new if i want. well thats about it for now, il upload some funny pictures of how massive the TriX cooler is later when i have more time, i hope i can get the money for the LAN PC soon though, seeing as then il just go and buy a 570 probably, as long as its not too long i should be good and as i think i said before, the RX 570 Pulse looks like it should work for me here and that would require little to no further modification to the case. thats all for now, picture later or something.
  8. stop makeing me remember the idiot that was selling a 1080 for $320 when i was broke....
  9. i imagine some leaks are done by the companies to build hyps, this could quite litteralty have been one of his assignments from NVIDIA
  10. understandable, the fans i use for my CPU cooler are not PWM and they work great, but its a nice feature
  11. well it does, its going to work but it wont be PWM controlled. the fan speed can still adapt and stuff
  12. its going to be a bottleneck at 1080p and probably 1440p aswell
  13. ITX LGA1155 boards are pretty rare but they dont go for unresonable prices, just look them up on Ebay if you want one. i would definatly go for ITX if its an HTPC because of the size
  14. AF 120 from Corsair? im not much of a fan person tbh
