  1. I am at the end of the online claim form and it only asked me for name , address, email, the serial #, psn sign in id and psn online id. I could not find a section to fill out about how linux worked and such.
  2. https://www.pcmag.com/news/359916/phat-ps3-owners-have-until-april-15-to-claim-65 A buddy of mine just sent me this, as i have one of the old systems i am going to fill out the form. Some of this may be old news but I had no Idea and time is starting to run out. Appears you have to own the old phat system, provide serial #, say you bought it at an online retailer, know that you could have installed linux on it and it lost value since they put a stop to it and also provide your psn name. Apologies if i put this in the wrong section.
  3. Suggestions on Gaming Monitor $300 or under?

    So looking into it i have narrowed it to 2 maybe 3 choices. This looks like a great budget option. AOC AGON AG241QX 23.8” Gaming Monitor, FreeSync, QHD (2560x1440), TN Panel, 144Hz, 1ms, ($299 @ Amazon) Looks like a good option but is the 1440p worth the $100 increase over the 1080p? LG 24UD58-B 24-Inch 4K UHD IPS Monitor with FreeSync ($297 @ Amazon) I am not a fan of LG displays but it is a solid price for 4k ips. what do you guys think?
  4. Suggestions on Gaming Monitor $300 or under?

    Battlefield 1 and Doom are the newest titles i have.
  5. My old Samsung syncmaster 206bw i think is slowly starting to die. Flashes on and off for 5-10 minutes on cold start up before it warms enough to stay on. Anyways I am looking for a gaming monitor for $300 or less. I would prefer to stay closer to $200 unless the leap in performance is warranted. Thinking 24"-27" but that is not set in stone. I plan on keeping this monitor for awhile,10 years+-. I currently have a ryzen 5 1600 with a gtx 1060 6gb. I do play AAA titles and some online fps, i am a casual gamer though. I don't know if i should be 1440p or 1080p. Open to all suggestions. Thank you.
  6. GTX 1080 bad coil whine

    From my understanding, once you have it its damn near impossible to get rid of. Having said that I would definitely try running heaven or any other bench for awhile to see if i could get rid of it. Hopefully it works for you.
  7. GTX 1080 bad coil whine

    Probably not, Is it actual coil whine or is the noise coming back through your speakers. I had an issue with my gtx 1060 where i thought it was coil whine but turns out it was causing feed back though my on board audio back ports. I routed my audio though my front port and the sound disappeared.
  8. I would go to EVGA's website and register your card if you haven't already. . . this helps with future rma if needed. This sounds like your graphics card is working as it should.
  9. It may help slightly. Did you buy the 1080ti new? If so from who and what brand is it. If there is a defect in the card it will more than likely be covered by the manufacturer warranty after you get your new pc built. Still check brand and seller to see their warranty policy is first. Also if you know anyone that has a better pc you could plug it in theirs and see how it performs.
  10. Fuse turned off when I turned my psu on

    15 min is no where near the length of time to determine that. But having it boot up and run normally under stress for 15 min is a good sign. Basically You won't know until you know.
  11. This and your cpu should be fixed if your wanting that 1080ti to hit its stride. Having said that awhile back i read some posts where the 1080's were kinda lazy cards so to speak meaning the games had to be more graphically demanding for that gpu to get off the couch and start working above baseline causing lower fps in games than what would be expected. Throwing a modern AAA title at it the cards worked great but you put an older not so demanding title on it and it was . . meh.
  12. Fuse turned off when I turned my psu on

    yes and the psu and any other components you feel like checking. . . you won't know until you check.
  13. Fuse turned off when I turned my psu on

    I wouldn't worry too much if its working well now more than likely it is fine. The only other way to tell is to have a knowledgeable person check the components capacitors and such . . . way above my pay-grade. If you have to pay for that service you probably spend way more than buying a new pc.
  14. Fuse turned off when I turned my psu on

    I have no way in knowing, Triple check all of your wires inside the pc are wired properly and try turning it back on. Also depending on the age of your pc check to make sure your psu doesn't have a voltage switch on the back of it that was switched the wrong way. Not knowing where you live but here in the states you would want that switched to 115v, i think in europe and other places it should be set to 230v.
