  1. Hi! I've been looking everywhere for a solution but I don't think there's any... and I'm not surprised. This is such a weird problem. I have voltage control and voltage monitoring unlocked and I'm using a GTX 980 Ti Strix. My CPU and Ram are overclocked if that even affects anything. Also, why does Afterburner report a different core clock than Unigine Heaven?
  2. I'll do that... stupid me didn't put the receipt back in my GPU box tho. Gotta find that pos
  3. I am using the iGPU of my CPU and just tried the other PCIe slot in my system, still no connection
  4. Tried it just now and no banana my friend I'll try some fixes again tomorrow
  5. I don't think reinstalling windows will do anything... neither would killing miners. But I will do the latter Alright.I'll try it on my friend's PC this week but I have low hopes
  6. Hi! I've tried reattaching the GPU twice as well as the CMOS battery. The problem still persists and my GPU isn't showing up in Device Manager. I've narrowed it down to two possible conclusions: faulty GPU or faulty PCIe slot. Some history: My second monitor was turning on and off yesterday. I thought it was just due to poor DP connection but the problem went away so I didn't think much of it My displays' connections kept dying today whenever I tried playing Overwatch. I heard an error message popup whenever that happens but I can't read that since my displays are dead. Some details: My GPU and PSU were bought brand new I've overclocked this GPU in the past (2 years ago) but I dialed it down to conservative settings ever since The hottest temperature my GPU hits is 87C GPU is updated with latest firmware Sigh. I suspect it has died and at the worse possible time. Crypto mining has driven up GPU prices (even freaking used GPUs) up. I was planning on upgrading on the year 2020. RIP me.
  7. Is there any mechanical switches i should know?

    XDA Canvas Alphas I see, hehe. Go Alphas, or go home. I love my keyset!
  8. Is the K95 RGB platinum worth it ?

    Not really... With that money, better go for something like a Leopold FC980M PD (Doubleshot PBT Keycaps). Head to https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/ and shoot the question there They have helped me pick a good board.
  9. Is there any mechanical switches i should know?

    Seems like everyone gave the lowdown on the brands of switches. Here's a summary of switches I like according to type: Linears: Kailh BOX Blacks Tactility: Zealios 67g (lubed) Clickies: Kailh BOX Navy I had Cherry MX Reds for 2 years. I had a love-hate relationship with them. I bottom-out a lot so I thought of getting heavier ones. Bought my first set of custom switches (Zealios 67g) and I lubed them. Let's just say they made Cherry MX Browns feel like a joke, haha. They were expensive as fuck so it's more economical to go for Outemu Ice Purples (62g or 67g) and lube them. I use my Zealios switches for gaming and typing and I couldn't be any happier. Here's a soundtest of my board: Cherry switches are generally not loved by the Mechanical keyboard community... the vintage Cherry switches are nice, though.
  10. Should I replace my DT990 250ohm Pros with a used HE 400S?

    I see. Hm, slightly off topic question. Do I need an amp for the HE-400s and the HE-400i? I'm thinking of selling my whole kit: DT990 Pro and Fiio E18 to get an HE-400i with some cash left for... pizza
  11. Should I replace my DT990 250ohm Pros with a used HE 400S?

    That's the old version (as pointed out by Dackzy). I occasionally listen to some Machinae Supremacy but definitely lesser than how much I listen to other genres/artists That's exactly the reason why I'd do the swap. The highs on the DT 990 become unbearable with certain songs... I like me some Bob Marley but instead of getting good vibes from his music, my head is just splitting into two from the sharp highs Is there any way I can mod the Hifiman's to make them more durable? The owner of the HE 400s already reinforced the wires Not related: But I will put Brainwavz Angled Memory Foams for the HE 400s if I end up swapping
  12. Should I replace my DT990 250ohm Pros with a used HE 400S?

    In terms of currency. I don't live in US. Prices here for headphones are jacked up so good deals usually come in the form of used bits I do want to audition them!! I was hoping I would get an easy answer though. Foolish me
  13. I just bought my DT990 (used) for $173 two weeks ago and it's been great. I do wish the mids were more pronounced and the highs were calmer. I found a listing for a used HE 400S going for $171. It has repaired and reinforced cables. The owner bought it used so I'll be the 3rd owner if I end up swapping to this (I'm fine with this TBH). I'll mainly use it for movies and games (FPS like Overwatch, Battlegrounds, Destiny 2). I listen to music from time to time (mostly Arctic Monkeys, Kendrick Lamar, Frank Ocean, etc) ps I'm confident I can sell my DT990 for $161 at the LEAST. pps Prices are converted from Philippine Peso. Hopefully that explains the absurd prices I have to deal with, lol
  14. Kindle Paperwhite, yay or nay? Planning to gift it to my SO

    Thank you guys. I have decided to get other things instead.
  15. Hi! I've been thinking about the Kindle paperwhite for weeks as a holiday gift to my SO. It's either that or the first hard bound book of Saga. She's into fantasy literature but she's read most of it already (I wish she was lying so I have more gift options but alas, she's legit). So she reads more from little publishers nowadays (or that's what I think she's doing) Anyways. How's the Kindle? Is the book selection big enough that they also have -underground- stuff? I wish I knew the authors she's reading but I don't. Sad. Anyways, I hear you can load PDF's into it to read and annotate (highlight). How does that work if the PDF file has graphics? She's a masters student so she does quite a bit of academic reading too I'm bothered whenever she uses a LCD screen to read her PDF's and eBooks. She already has bad vision and the LCD screens aren't helping.
