    AMD Polaris Giveaway

    gibe nao pls.
  2. You should only use super sampling in games. Just set your desktop resolution to your screen's native resolution and only use the higher resolutions in-game by choosing them in game settings.

    Asus r9 390 Strix Overheating

    I said it runs below 80, and it does it at 40% fan speed. My ambient is usually around 27 degrees. It's the cooler design. MSI has one of the best coolers for the R9 390, while ASUS has one of the worst. It's a well known fact.

    Asus r9 390 Strix Overheating

    90 degrees is not a normal temperature for an R9 390. I have the MSI one and it stays well below 80 at all times. Another thing worth mentioning is that ASUS cooling solutions on the R9 series of AMD video cards aren't really that good, so it might in fact be a normal temperature for this specific model. From what I know they basically took the cooler from their 970 and slapped it on a 390 with no modifications.

    [People in europe] 1070 prices

    The 1070 price is around 65% of the 1080, and the 1080 costs 820€ where I live. So the 1070 should cost around 530€. These are all founders edition prices.

    Will my CPU bottleneck RX 480?

    i used to have a phenom ii 1100t and it did bottleneck a hd7970 in gta 5 (stuttering, low gpu usage). the fx 8350 only has marginally better single core performance (usually what causes the bottleneck) than the 1100t. the hd7970 is similar to an r9 380x performance-wise, and the 480 is supposed to be a lot better than that. so yes, i'm afraid it will bottleneck.

    Amd driver for r9 390 is a crap??

    what do you mean by "driver"? if you mean the software like raptr, gaming evolved, geforce experience, etc then let me tell you one thing: just don't install it. those programs are completely useless, doesn't matter whether you have an amd or nvidia card. i have an r9 390 and all i installed from the CD was the graphics driver. that's it. none of that extra unnecessary bloatware that came with it. and everything runs perfectly fine. all the settings you might ever need are in the amd catalyst control thing. but if by "driver" you mean the actual graphics driver then i don't really see how you can say it's either good or bad if it just works. it has never crashed on me or anything, and i've never had any weird low performance issues. everything works just as you'd expect from an R9 390. so i wouldn't call it bad. but there's really no reason to call it good either (same thing for nvidia). it simply does its job.
  8. That motherboard only has one PCIe slot so I guess the second card would have to be PCI. But you might also try connecting all the monitors to that 7770 if it has enough ports, it might just work.

    RCA to 3.5mm Cable VS RCA to 3.5mm port + Aux Cable

    It depends how long you need the cable to be. But if it's like 1 or 2 meters long then yeah, it doesn't matter.

    MSI afterburner question!!

    You can set a hotkey in MSI Afterburner to toggle the OSD. It's right there in settings (On-Screen Display tab).

    The "X" in 390. Is it worth the extra $100?

    Not really. From what I know the difference between 980 and 970 is quite significant. For the 390 and 390X, not so much.

    R9 390 vs GTX 970

    I have an MSI R9 390 and I couldn't be happier. The software is NOT bad. That's what nvidia fanboys keep saying and they have absolutely no idea. Just don't install all of the junk that comes on the CD like AMD Gaming Evolved and shit. It's useless (for me at least). All you need is the display driver. That's it. I've never had any problems with the driver itself.

    The "X" in 390. Is it worth the extra $100?

    Here are some comparisons. You decide if you think it's worth it. For me it wasn't.
  14. How old is the laptop and when did this start happening? Also, what exactly does it look like? Does the affected part of the display just not change at all? Or can you see like just the "outline" of your desktop? I've had this happen to my old LCD monitor where it had the tab bar from Chrome permanently burned in, but it was barely visible.

    Best High End Air cooler for a 5820k

    The D15 is one of the best air coolers (if not the best). Also, it's compatible with pretty much any high-profile RAM if you lift one of the fans like this: Or you could attach it on the back of the heatsink or remove it completely but that would probably affect performance.
