  1. It happened at my home. I was only getting 100Mb/s while I was supposed to be getting 300Mb/s. I checked all of the cables in my house, did an internal speed test, and everything internally was right. I called my ISP, and it turned out that there was a damaged cable in between my telecommunications box and ethernet jeck in my wall. They came in, fixed it, and I was at the popper speed.
  2. If you're connected directly to your router, you should check the cable from your router to the internet box from your ISP. If you have already rebooted your router, try calling your ISP and see if they can reboot your modem and/or telecommunications box. If the problem persists after that, then it's the ISP's fault and their responsibility to fix.
  3. If you bought the rx750 new, I would use the cable that came with it. If not, use the cable with the EVGA 500w, stress test the PC, and see if the cable gets warm. If it gets too warm, buy a thicker cable rated higher than 750w (preferably 1200-1500w).
  4. No. You are still seeing a 1080p image, but it has been rendered at a higher resolution. Effectively. It's pretty much the same as DSR, where the GPU will render at a higher resolution, and then down-sample to the output resolution. Resolution scaling is a per-game basis, which has the potential to either be better or worse than Nvidia's blanket DSR solution, so it depends on the game as to which one will look better. Personally, I think DSR is better since you can fine-tune it in the Nvidia control panel to change the smoothness of the image. For surround setups, the only way to render the image higher than output is through in-game frame scaling. Hope this helps.
  5. Yes. Same room. Right beside the PC. At 50°C and 60% humidity, the dew point is a little over 40°, but I'm going to have a micro-controller on it to run it at least 5°C above the dew point at all times. Labview FTW.
  6. Condensation is a result of temperature and relative humidity. The goal is to have the chiller set to around 40°C, well above the dew point for the room. Condensation will not occur in the PC at 40°. I’ve done the calculations. Portable ac units cost almost as much as chillers, but I’d be using more power over all running the AC vs the chiller. What I need, and what I asked for, is a good deal for the chiller.
  7. Update: It could cost a lot of money to get an AC that could dissipate heat outside of my room, so that is out of the option. The cheapest solution would be to get a chiller for the PC.
  8. TWMC, I’ve always had really high ambient temperatures in my room during summers. It was refinished from an attic storage room, and I live in the south. I’ve tried air coolers and AiO’s to cool the CPU, but in summers, I hit around 90°C max on my CPU. I’ve decided to buy an active chiller to reduce my temps down to something more reasonable i.e. 50’s to 60’s max. I have an EK custom water cooling system on the way, but I feel like I need something actively dropping temperature below ambient to get good results. I watched the video on chilling threadripper 2, but the aquarium chiller is no longer for sale. Is there any other chiller under $300 that’s not garbage? Thanks in Advance
  9. This is a strange issue I had when I upgraded to the RTX 2080. I hadn't updated to the Fall 2018 creator's update (for obvious reasons) when I put my new 2080 in. I updated the Nvidia drivers perfectly fine, but Origin told me that I needed the Fall update to play with ray-tracing (the only reason I ponied up for the 2080). So I updated Windows, and the card worked fine, and even though ray tracing isn't too amazing, I was happy. But when Nvidia released their newest driver on 2/13, I could not update the driver. I did DDU in safe mode, but I was not able to install any driver (even as far back as the early 4xx.xx versions). So, I rolled back the update, and the newest GPU driver installed just fine. So now, I'm pretty sure that I'll have to update Windows to the Fall 2018 to use ray tracing, and then rollback to u[date the GPU driver. Super inconvenient. Just a tidbit in case someone else had the same issue.
  10. I would check GPU temps. Maybe the fan over the vcore is out. Also, if you're tech savvy, you may want to try applying better thermal paste. If that doesn't work, you may try reflashing the GPU bios if ASUS makes them available to the public.
  11. Nvidia has finally taken the wraps off of the RTX 2060. For just $349, they are advertizing that you will be able to play Battlefield V at medium RTX settings at 1440p at 60fps. The card is said to have 5 gigarays/sec and 6Gb of GDDR6 VRAM. They are also boasting about the high availability of the card.
  12. I’m in que for a setup to a 2080Ti. They said it may be a couple of months. There are some available on NewEgg right now, but at like 2x the price.
  13. I just finished a conversation with a customer support representative at a board partner with Nvidia. I am eligible for an upgrade from my 1080 (full MSRP refund) to either the GTX 1080Ti or RTX 2080, and both would end up costing me about $200. I asked him about the performance difference, and he said that they were essentially the same. I then asked whether he recommended having a higher frame buffer (1080 Ti), or having the Ray Tracing option. They then told me that Ray Tracing wouldn't really be properly implemented into games for about a year. So if you're paying for the card outright, wait. If you can upgrade for cheap, go for it. My recommendation is the same as Linus's. "It depends".
  14. The VRAM on the 2070 is 8Gb. The VRAM on the 2080Ti is 11Gb. It is a blatant case of false advertizing.
