  1. Congratz to becoming a mod :) 


    And your post count is still no rike :/ 

  2. Looks like one of your cards is unstable. This might be a product of an overclocking setting that didn't get removed, or a bad driver. I would advise wiping off all drivers with Display Driver Uninstaller, then uninstalling all overclocking programs. Then reinstall the latest driver.
  3. I think he means chipset series. The 90-chipsets were released alongside Haswell Refresh just like the 200-chipsets were released alongside Skylake Refresh.
  4. Hi! Have you overclocked your cards at all and are you keeping an eye on temperatures? - Moved to Troubleshooting.
  5. I'd RMA that mobo and stop there; Haswell is still a good place to be.
  6. Holy value


    S12II 520W for $45 on amazon with a really low international shipping price too

      Seasonic S12II series - King of value

      Damn, I got a friend who could really use this right now. He's got an Antec VP450 and needs more PCI connections so he can upgrade his GPU.

      $33 shipping to India. RIP.

  7. mini build

    Haven't seen a review, but it came out around the time Fractal decided to stop selling bad PSUs (like the Integra R2) We generally regard it as "fine, but no more info available"
  8. Not as good as the SP550, funnily enough. If you want a looker SSD, get a SL308. Great performance and great looks.
  9. Well there are two versions of the GT 730, one sucks and the other is a bit better than Skylake iGPU. If your 730 has GDDR5, chances are it's good. But the easiest way to find out whether it'll run your game is to search for "GT 730 GDDR5 GTA V performance", or go to the GTA V minimum specs and see how it compares. Turning down resolution to 1280x720 would also help.
  10. The UV400 isn't that great, esp compared to a same-price Adata SP550.,4730-2.html
  11. I didn't quite get what the PSU problem is here, but an EVGA 850W B2 is a great PSU (I'd choose a 750W B2 if cheaper, because that's still enough power for crossfire up to 250W cards).
  12. You are not the mod we deserve, but the one we need.

      I'll take it.

  13. That's a cool looking case. Well honestly i5-750 + HD 6870 is a fine combination for low-ish end games, stuff like CSGO and Rocket League. If you want to sell the computer as a gaming box, anything from 750 Ti up (RX 460, GTX 950, 1050, 960, R7 370, etc) would be a good pairing imo. But you could also tidy it up a bit and sell it with the 6870.
  14. It's too bad the Warranty thread isn't updated anymore.
  15. I get that it's annoying that the latest trend in hardware is not related to performance at all But we can't tell OP what to want.
