  1. You're in Canada, so we have different laws here in the states. On a federal level, false advertising falls under Bait-and-switch regulations. Those regs give a specific exemption for "good-faith errors". For example, you send the correct ad to the newspaper but the paper prints the wrong price. You are not required to honor the mistaken price. Wrong prices on websites are covered under this so long as the price wasn't intentionally displayed to get buyers that would be later offered the product at full price.
  2. Yeah Best Buy had this with some HDTVs a while back for a like a dollar. People tried suing them and lost
  3. Done, dropped the GPU some degrees but still running too hot with too high memory clock
  4. Thats my last step, but that will just test the random shut down part. Still doesnt explain why card is needing 1500MHz memory to run the desktop - it used to use 300MHz.
  5. Nope Processor never cracked 62, reapplied paste to be sure Drivers were cleanly installed with clean install of windows.
  6. Rig: i3-4160 Gigabyte R9 270 1X 8GB of 1600MHz DDR3 1TB Barracuda HDD EVGA 1050GS Power Supply Windows 10 Home Symptoms: Random restarts. Completely random. Sometimes crash to desktop from games, sometimes completely to BIOS from anywhere. Artifacting in Fallout 4. Has suddenly started running at full 1500MHz memory while running the desktop Runs at 48 degrees at idle. Never overheats though during games. Used to run about 30-40 degrees at idle Fans run above 35% constantly when they used to run at 25% on desktop The thing I've never heard of is a graphics card making an entire system restart, thats something Id usually attribute to failing memory or a bad PSU, but this occurs across 3 different PSUs I've tried and memory swaps. The random restarts will also persist even if I underclock the card which cools it down at idle.
  7. Its because I was just researching the 390 and was comparing it to the 970. My response was because what I found was the brands were consitent on both. Gigabyte/Powercolor were bad and EVGA/XFX/MSI/Sapphire were good. Didn't really notice EVGA didn't make AMD cards. My advice still stands for both cards, minus EVGA for AMD. Nice job jumping to conclusions though.
  8. Not even a single 980ti is going to give you 60 FPS max settings 4K. The video card industry has lagged behind for a couple years in development lacking a new mark to aim for past 1080/1440. Pascal/Polaris GPUs are allegedly the fix to that issue and will focus on 4K as standard. You're better off waiting for Polaris/Pascal if you want 4K.
  9. Sapphire is the one I've heard MSI, XFX and EVGA also have good iterations. Gigabyte and Powercolor have bad reps on the 390. Both are notorious for overheat.
  10. Are there applications where you could see a benefit from a Titan X? Yes. Is it worth double the price of a 980ti? No.
  11. I have an ASRock Z97 Extreme6, EVGA 1050GS Gold power supply, and will pair the 4790K with a Aquachanger 240. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835494019
  12. According to the site " Passed the ROG RealBench stress test for one hour with these settings: 48x CPU Multiplier 1.328V CPU VCORE (Or less) 1.90V CPU INPUT VOLTAGE (Or less) "
  13. I want it to guarantee headroom. So if I want a 4.5GHz constant OC, I want it to be able to do 4.7 maxed. I like knowing my processor is solidly in the stable range.
  14. Really? I had read 4.6 as a realistic target for all 4790k owners. I plan on going with the Aquacharger 240 on newegg in a Carbide Air 540 case
