  1. i thought it was TLC 😮

  2. was having alot of eye strain but it magically went away

  3. Asus advertises that my mobo has pcie 3.0 slot but according to GPU-Z it's 2.0 🙄

      there's no pcie slot info in my bios

    3. WikiForce

      WikiForce

      oh.. according to specs it says 3rd gen. CPU required for PCIE 3.0 speed

      Well there's your problem.

  4. double checking obsession is killing me :/

      means you're getting careful, good habit, but dont go overboard with it.

  5. my brother got really upset after i was trying to convince him giving me i5 3rd gen because i was being a bit greedy and asking for 3550 instead of 3470. He has a both of those and now he got really resentful towrads me and went downstairs, he was really sad and said something to me about it  :/

    I ruined his mood and feeling bad about it :(

  6. surprisingly my Arctic F8 80mm case fan is working fine on my brother's pc (fan speed is according to the load, lower rpm at idle and higher during load) whereas for me it was running at full speed all the time. So it turns out my mobo has issue with running a PWM fan properly.

  7. who else think games these days are huge? I mean windows having so many things and features is less than 20GB while some game even with really small map like Rainbow Six Seige are touching 80GB mark and i feel even GTA 5 which has a huge map still ridiculous for it's almost 80GB size. But those are more than 3yrs old game (atleast on pc). Nowadays we even see games touching 100GB install size which is outrageous tbh. I mean, why can't they compress textures and audio? When i edit a image in gimp it looks decent even at 70% quality (hardly notice any difference) so why can't developers compress it to alteast 90% quality, same with setting auto bitrate to 320kbps instead of using FLACs (most of my music is same bitrate and it sounds great). it will do wonders for PC Gaming and technically reduce system requirement as well. Even PS1 games when emulated on PC look great at 4k even without having 1080p textures.

  8. my brother gave my older 4gb non-working corsair ram stick for RMA and received a brand new replacement in branded package under 10 days, full marks to corsair for their service.

  9. the spare gigabyte h61 mobo isn't that bad after all, it has more bios features compared to my current asus mobo. It has iGPU overclocking and one of the more importnat feature is setting cpu temp limit from 60-90C. Biggest plus is it has full support for a 95w cpu compared to 77w on my asus mobo which is a weird limit because h61 already itself a pretty basic chipset and it just gets worse you if you don't support all the CPUs in that lineup. My problem with Gigabyte mobo is it has a really weird manufacturing defect, first of all by default it set IDE as default SATA mode and if you change it to AHCi after you have windows already installed and didn't prepare it for the change, you would get BSOD and that would cause mobo to stop showing display. I had this issue with two different units of same model (h61m-s) so don't want to take chance. The thing is, it would have been okay if this mobo didn't have set IDE by default which is an ancient technology and if by chance you have to do some troubleshooting by setting bios to default then you're fucked.

  10. Can't believe GDDR5 is now almost 10yrs old and my GPU 5yrs old since launch :(

      My GPU is 2.5 year olds, while my videocard is 1.5 years old.. 🤔

  11. what are the other uses of a usb 2.0 header other than front panel connectors? my mobo has two and i am only using 1 for case. I want to utilize other one.

    1. Levent

      Levent

      if you got a use for that USB, get one of these and run a usb extension. Other than that I wouldnt bother.

  12. TBH, i never really enjoying watching Tech Jesus,

    #1 His videos are generally too long.

    #2 He simply sounds bland

    1. Spotty

      Spotty

      I agree that their videos are often too long, typically around the 20-30 minute mark, but they do cover good content and actually do proper reviews and teardowns.
      They often do written articles that cover what is in their video, so if you find the videos a little long or his presenting style a bit monotonous then you should check out their written stuff at gamersnexus.net. They usually link to the written article in the youtube description as well.

    2. Blademaster91

      Blademaster91

      The videos are bit long but sometimes i'll skip to the benchmarks and graphs and read the written article later. I really appreciate his thorough reviews since he'll openly criticize what he doesn't like about a product , and teardown videos is something not many other channels do.

    3. Tech_Dreamer

      Tech_Dreamer

      i actually like long videos , when they get into details about stuff here & there it's very informative 7 fun , i do  agree with his voice sounding bland , but hey, it's his voice.

  13. just discovered this feature in Task Manager, when you hover over the number of slot used. You can see details about your individual ram sticks. It's really nice :D2133176505_featureramslotsused.jpg.6cfd26c2e48ee4a8feffe166aa9e60b2.jpg

      wow really? just now? xD

  14. wow, i'm surprised. My GPU is running hotter than my CPU at full load. My 750 ti only has 60w tdp whereas my i5 2300 had 95w TDP.

      just the GPU chip or the RAM dimms as well?

    3. WikiForce

      WikiForce

      what do you mean? I didn't know there was anything like RAM temps monitoring, alteast not for me but maybe on DDR4 platform.

      btw, don't you think 46% fan speed at full load sounds unhealthy? because it's 33% at idle and temps are down to 25c compared to 30-32c of cpu.

      could be if it was new,  depending on the usage , if you were running this at peak like playing a A-AAA for hours on end, these floors the gpu to max & taxes this , the efficiency dies down drastically,  when doing basic overclocking & especially if you overvolt the chip. usually  only 90 days needed before the silicon chips fine pipeline channels literally evaporate , heard from a peterson interview in pcper.

  15. My 120mm Case Fan that came with my case runs at less than 1000rpm. Is it normal? it's a 3-pin fan so should run at full speed all the time.

       it's a 3-pin fan so should run at full speed all the time.

      is false. You can control 3-pin fans, through changing the voltage. If you have set the fan control method in bios to auto/3-pin/voltage, then you can control the fans just fine. It is full speed all the time only if you have set the fan control method to PWM, as the 3-pin fan is missing the 4th pwm pin, and so it can't be controlled that way.

      @Origami Cactus my mobo doesn't have those option. It's a pretty basic board and even my earlier Arctic PWM fan was running at full speed which i had with my previous case though it's fine on my brother's pc, which is confusing.

    4. Origami Cactus

      Origami Cactus

      @WikiForce You should be able to control your fan speed with your motherboard, but if it isn't an option in bios you may need to download asus fan expert 2.

  16. Can a buffer overflow happen without a virus or attack? I mean like due to bug in a software or something.

      so it means i should never disable execute disable bit in bios?

    3. Origami Cactus

      Origami Cactus

      Don't really know, but why would you want to disable it?

    4. WikiForce

      WikiForce

      i thought it would slightly improve my pc performance

  17. does anyone know a good free duplicate file scanner?

    1. Syntaxvgm

      Syntaxvgm

      I would be looking for this too, but one that compares images and keeps the higher res one as well.

      think piriform has a tool but they merged it with ccleaner if i recall correctly.

  18. seems like i got banned from reddit, can't login even after resetting the password. Is that how it works? -_-

      i never really posted much on Reddit, just registered and used my account passively for more than 2 years. Just one or two posts a very long time ago.

      The real question here though is if LTT is next?!?!?!?

      @imreloadin not at all, i am very careful here after my earlier temporary bans :P

  19. does running android emulator require virtualization to be enabled in BIOS?

    1. germgoatz

      germgoatz

      bluestacks technically CAN run without virtualization but its choppier and slower, i did it on my build then turned it on and and it improved the smoothness.

  20. for some reason, my processor is running at lower clocks after RMA'ing my mobo. I thought it had something to do with earlier bios version but i just flashed to the latest version and it's still running at 2.9Ghz instead of 3.1Ghz at full load. Though, according to specs my cpu is 2.9ghz turbo on all cores but still how was it running at 3.1ghz before. Cinebench score is still relatively same though. Watts usage is down to around 10-15 watts too at full load. Earlier it used to peak at 60W now it won't even go over 50W.

    1. lewdicrous

      lewdicrous

      Did you change anything related to the wattage on the previous mobo or were you running at default settings?

    2. WikiForce

      WikiForce

      there is no option to change wattage or anything like that. The only thing i do is disable few features that i don't need such as HPET, Anti Surge, F1 if error (unsupported processor due to higher wattage but works fine), Numlock on boot.

  21. this probably has been the coldest winter all my life or atleast last decade

  22. i want to buy this monitor but some of the negative reviews are concerning

  23. my brother might pull trigger on another awesome deal :D

    i5 6th gen. + Mobo + 4GB RAM for only ₹2,500.

    4GB RAM brand new alone cost almost that much :P

    1. Tech_Dreamer

      Tech_Dreamer

      your brother seems a lot more Cooler than you are LOL , is he on LTT?

    2. WikiForce
  24. should i risk and update my mobo bios? after RMA, it came with first bios release instead of latest one.

    1. Tech_Dreamer

      Tech_Dreamer

      bios flash is extremely risky. if you're confident then do it, if it crashes due to user error thats the end of warranty & you'll have a dead hardware . plus UPS is a must.

    2. WikiForce

      WikiForce

      even the latest bios release is from 2014, i'm not sure why they gave mobo with initial version. Probably an old stock they had laying around for years which was untouched.
