  1. Sounds like dead pump, only thing you can do is RMA it

    My Pc not running at full performance!

    Is your monitor 60Hz or higher? If it's 60Hz, playing with windowed borderless will keep it from exceeding 60fps. Also, pick either FXAA or MSAA, not both, although using frame scaling without either option enabled is the better option for GTA 5.

    Is Scan.co.uk a safe shopping website?

  4. https://www.asus.com/Sound-Cards/Essence_STX_II_71/ You might be able to get the sister card on its own, but whether it'd work properly is doubtful. I can vouch for the STX II as being a great soundcard, but I only use it for mic & headphones, so can't confidently comment on the 7.1 card, but it was the first thing that came to mind when I saw this thread as it seems to be the only soundcard with this option, even though it comes on a separate card, and is quite pricey.

    IRL gender vs Gender in games?

    I voted 'other' as I'm male and in games I've been both, my 2 EVE Online toons are male & female, I have .. uhhhhhhmmm ... lots (is 'lots' a number yet?) of WoW toons which are a mixture of male & female, and my top three favourite League champs are female, and for a time I had a female character in GTA Online. Can't say I ever give it much thought beyond "Oh he/she looks cool" or "He/she has this ability that I like". In EVE, WoW and GTA I have received some pretty pervy messages over the years, and for the most part it's dumb horny teenage kids who don't know any better, but when it's adults getting pretty graphic and threatening I really do wonder what went wrong in their lives, and I can only pity them.

    Hard reboot problem

    Just a bump to say it's happened again and I've found no working solution, so RMA it is. Booooo

    Hard reboot problem

    A month ago I upgraded my GPU and PSU, 6 times since then I've had hard reboots. The first 3 times I I had XMP enabled but didn't have BSOD or critical error messages enabled. The 4th and 5th times I had XMP disabled as I thought it might be the problem, and I checked my voltages in hwinfo; nothing seemed out of the ordinary there as far as I could tell, and I enabled BSOD & critical error messages. The 6th time it happened I stopped being lazy and updated the graphics & chipset drivers, and the BIOS, all to the most recent releases. That was 3 days ago so I don't know if I feel confident enough to say the chipset & BIOS updates have helped, but I'm wondering if they actually could help with a problem like this? Every time it hard rebooted was when I started loading a game (GTA 5, BF1, BF5), not even on any main menus and never during a game. All my framerates have been superb, temps are as you'd expect for both CPU and GPU, the system temp itself hasn't gone above 36ish when under load, and I've had no weird glitches or bugs at all that make me think it's the GPU. I did some very late night googling yesterday and found a few posts on various sites about overcurrent protection but unfortunately don't have any over/undercurrent options in my BIOS, so can't know for sure if it's something that can activate when there's no overcurrent happening. A few posts seemed to suggest changing the PCI Express 'Link State Power Management' from 'Moderate' to 'Off' can affect how overcurrent protection is activated on a PCI slot, but me dunno dat, me no smart enuf. I did check the event viewer logs every time the reboot happened, all it shows is the critical error about the sudden reboot, a few information things, and a whole heap of ID 55 "Processor x in group x exposes the following" messages, which haven't appeared after normal reboots since updating the BIOS & chipset. If it happens again should I just RMA my PSU, or is there something else I may have missed, something so obvious I can't see it? Palit RTX 2080 Ti 11GB Dual - factory OC be quiet!

    144hz not working

    In the Nvidia control panel resolution list, scroll down to below the PC line, it should have your resolution and let you set the proper refresh rate there.
  9. It's the Roblox death sound and people use it all the time for all sorts of shit. I dislike it being used ever, especially when people say "big oof". Really jingles my jangles.
  10. I honestly don't know for certain, but I would expect them to be fairly well insulated when it comes to small static shocks. At airport security checkpoints they swab electronics for traces of explosives. AFAIK they use a dry cotton swab.
  11. Modern hardware is much more robust when it comes to static discharges, and as mentioned above keep it in an anti-static bag, if they want to remove it to look closer at it very politely ask them to ground themselves first

    Your anti-vaxxer stories

    It literally makes no difference whatsoever. They combined it when people read Wakefield's crap and complained, then people started complaining about the ingredients so they changed some of those, then people *still* complained, grasping at straws. It's probably never going to end and that makes me sad I recommend people watch this Joe Rogan episode, Dr. Hotez goes in to far more detail than I could ever remember. Whatever you feel about Joe Rogan, his guests are often worth suffering him for.

    Is Prime Day a meme?

    All I have on my wishlist is books & blurays and none of them were discounted at all today

    Computer randomly reboots without BSOD

    Sorry to bump, but had to give thanks for this. Had my computer reboot three times today while loading games, fourth time was just now and it was a memory problem. Disabled XMP and now everything seems to be fine. But now I'm wondering why it suddenly decided to become unstable today, I've had XMP enabled for months without issue
