  1. You're not using a bird picture?  I feel like I should be worried.  😅

      @Bleedingyamato english translation is cute girl > bird

      I like birds too though.  Not in the same way I like girls but birds are nice too.  

  2. what's with the bird??

    1. yathis


      Flippin the bird is normal. Duals are even better.

  3. So $400 (canadian) for a 980 Ti Yeah that's really not bad. You should invest in one of these though.
  4. The rule of thumb for an overclock is: if it's stable it's safe. Assuming temps are manageable and voltage isn't over the roof (for Ryzen that would be over 1.5V)
  5. Actually tagging @Slick is probably more likely to get it through to Linus lol
  6. Not everyone cares to show appreciation like that, you do well to show it I hope you're better and welcome to the forums.
  7. Cool then that's weird, it's definitely something to contact the motherboard manufacturer about. Also make sure you have the Windows Power Plan on Balanced rather than High Performance because the latter will force max clocks out of the CPU.
  8. It should revert if you clear CMOs: either click the load optimized defaults option in the BIOS or remove the CMOS battery from the motherboard for a minute or two with the computer disconnected. Then put it back in. It's a silverish circle about 2cm in diamater.
  9. When you overclock you may disable power saving features that would make the CPU clock down at idle, so it ends up at full clock all the time. As for temps those look just fine. You can go up to 85 without damaging the silicon.
  10. I don't see this happening as long as 4K monitors still cost over $200 honestly. For a resolution to be standard it's gotta be more affordable than 4K is right now. Otherwise there's not enough volume.
  11. If you sold your 390 for that $350, then bought a 980 Ti with that, I think you would be happy.
  12. He's upgrading to Ryzen soon.
  13. And by not upgrading GPU at all you're making $400. Your point? Edit: wait you're selling your 390 for $350 holy shit. Yeah get a 1060 then. I'd choose a 580 over it if you can find one available
  14. The 390 can drive 2560x1080 at high settings. And considering it was / is on par with the GTX 980, it may even do it better than a 1060. So instead don't upgrade GPU just yet and get your Ryzen
  15. Nah it was 300W square And the 390X was 275W
