  1. You had me at 42 inches, 1080P 120 HZ, low input lag, good colors, 1:4 image scaling, and Freesync (better have LFC)! I've been looking for a new display and that's everything I want in one and freaking NO ONE MAKES IT! I reached out to a few companies that make custom Monitors and not even they would make a display with these specs for me.
  2. Whenever I play games or in this instance running Unigine Heaven benchmark my GTX 780 stays in the 70C temperature and lower 90% power ranges instead of going up around the 95C temp limit and 105% power limit I have it set to. My first guess would be a lack of power but I'm using a Corsair CX750, and when I have my PC hooked up to a power meter it only uses around 450 Watts total when running demanding games so there should be power to spare for more overclocking. Any ideas as to what's going on?
  3. Here's a screenshot of my second screen where I display GPU and CPU stats while Dying Light is running on my main screen. GPU usage dropped because of screenshot otherwise it's 99%. My problem is that I want to overclock my card more but I'm limited by power consumption, not because I do not have enough power but because my card will not get near or above the power limit despite thermal headroom. The max temp limit on a GTX 780 is about 100C. I plugged my PC into a power monitor and my system is only using 450 Watts during gameplay. I have a CX750m Cosair PSU so there's power headroom as well. I have the volts, temp, and power limit set to max. If i turn the core clock anymore than +10 I get crashes, so why won't my card just draw more power and run faster because it has the headroom to do so? I have yet to see my card get above 80C or power consumption go above 80%. Instead it should draw 105% power and overclock more.
  4. Yeah I'm testing one stick at a time now, but I think there's some way to coorelate error address values to physical RAM slots I just don't know how. Edit: Wouldn't be returning RAM, just trying to be efficient and smart about troubleshooting.
  5. I attached a picture of the results in my last post not sure what happend, trying again.
  6. I'm running Memtest 86+ to check my RAM and I'm getting errors. Looking at the results does it indicate which memory sticks specfically are producing errors? How do I interpret these results? thank you
  7. This is the router/modem I have: http://www.actiontec.com/264.html I'm running cat5e wiring and I do not share my Network with anyone else. I have centurylink 40Mbps down and 5Mbps up. In my favorite game, Chivalry Medieval Warfare, the best active and closest servers I get ping of around 80-100ms. When I'm playing against other players with ping in the <40ms range I get wrecked, their reaction times feel so much faster. Due to the nature of the game ping and reaction time make a big difference in winning or losing.
  8. Is there anything I can do with my NIC, router, or modem settings to get better ping in the online games I play? Other than the usual "turn off torrents, reset router, turn off AV." I'm looking for advanced tweaking tips here. If so what do I do and how please? Thanks
  9. Both of the ASUS ultrabooks have a GTX 850m which is very gaming capable, the 850m is actually faster than a 760m.
  10. THIS IS A BLEEDING EDGE GAMING LAPTOP LINUS YOU NEED TO REVIEW IT! I would really like to see his temperature analysis of the newer version. I wonder how much cooler it will be with the maxwell GPU in there and if Razer has improved on the cooling at all.
  11. Where is Linus's review for the newest Razer blade? It's been out for a while now how come he hasn't reviewed it yet? I have been eagerly awaiting his review for it.
  12. I had crossfire 7850s for about a year, and it was a love-hate relationship. It was either a great experience or an absolute nightmare, all depending on the game. With well supported games like Bioshock Infinite and Tomb raider it was fantastic, the scaling of adding a second card was >90%, the game ran very smooth, and no crashes. However, when it was games with no crossfire support..... My favorite game Chivalry Medieval Warfare was a nightmare with Xfire, it has zero support from both AMD and the Dev. With Xfire the game has frame rate issues, horrendous micro stutter, and each GPU was never utilized above 50% AND the frame rate was low (20s-40s). The final straw was Titanfall, right after I saw the artifacting with Xfire I ordered a GTX 780 and have not looked back. It's been fixed since, but I don't want to encounter issues like this ever again. Sure you can disable one card for games that are not supported, but that's bullshit. Having one card sit there being useless because the developer is too incompetent to support Xfire is infuriating.
