  1. It does have inferior performance to a tower cooler, but if you're not overclocking you've got nothing to worry about temperature wise.
  2. No, sadly. AFAIK Precision X is the only way to control EVGA RTX lighting. I do find though that Mystic Light's slowest Light speed pretty much matches the speed that EVGA's software cycles through colours, but obviously it's not synchronised.
  3. I'm looking to get a set of 4 Corsair RGB LED strips in order to light my case. The JRAINBOW1 and JRBG1/2 headers have detailed information in the manual about maximum lengths/LEDs supported, but no detail is provided for the Corsair header on strips supported, only how to configure fans correctly for Mystic Light compatibility. Can the Corsair header support up to 4 Corsair LED strips off it?
  4. Only logical thing I could possibly imagine is that the port from the GPU that the laptop screen is running on (or the panel itself) has been damaged and is impacting the frame rate being delivered. The other possible option is that your laptop has a discrete GPU as well as an integrated one, and when you're running just off the laptop it's using the iGPU but when connected it's using the discrete GPU. What are the specs of your laptop?
  5. In the process of deciding on my monitor upgrade and the VG27AQ at about £460 is ticking a lot of boxes for me. Just wanted to check here if anyone had any recommendations around that price point that are potentially better that I may have missed.
  6. If that's the case then it's almost certainly a motherboard manufacturing problem with either slot 2 or 4, or both. Simply open up an RMA case with Gigabyte and ask for it to be replaced.
  7. I would expect to see a couple of degrees difference, not 10, unless that's just how Ryzen is. I'm coming from a 4790K to this which would sit at around 28 (on a different cooler) and rarely move above 32 or so with random background stuff.
  8. I've got a 3700X being cooled by Deepcool Castle 240EX. Pump is at full speed all the time and the fans (2 x Scythe GT 1850RPM) are sitting at a stable 700RPM or so. What I'm seeing in HWMonitor at idle is that, without any changes in power draw or utilisation, the temperature will do something like this: 57 - 55 - 53 - 50 - 48 - 47 - 58 - 56 - 52 - 50 - 45 - 58 ... It continually swings around 10 degrees just sitting there with everything else staying exactly the same. Now I'm not concerned about a bad mount as it sits at a rock solid 67 Degrees under full load after 30 minutes, but I was wondering if there was something about Ryzen that I wasn't aware that may cause this.
  9. Just as an experiment, can you try booting the system with the RAMs in slots 2 and 4? If you get crashes again it may be a Motherboard problem which you can also get an RMA for.
  10. Just as a sanity test, have you tired running the two RAM sticks you've taken out in place of the two RAM sticks you say work fine with Adobe? It's possible one or both of those sticks is just bad and needs to be returned to be replaced. If you get the crashing again after trying those sticks take one of them out then the other until it reliably crashes with one, although if you bought them in one pack you'll likely have to RMA all of them.
  11. Currently running a 3700X and an RTX 2080, looking to upgrade from my venerable U2414H. 144Hz, IPS and G-Sync/Freesync with Nvidia support are all musts, but other than that I'm undecided about 1080 vs 1440p. I feel like my rig could easily handle 1440p with some settings turned down, which used to be the advice in 2014, is that still the case today?
  12. Seeing as they will likely need to add these effects using an ENB like system, I assume that it will apply for the entire game.
  13. I mean, the article is pure speculation and seems mostly baseless to me. They seem to assume that by the time AMD have 7nm ready to ship, Intel will still be sitting on 10nm. However, given how far off AMD 7nm is likely to be, AMD will likely miss the Cannonlake release window and release alongside Intel's sub 10nm process. It just doesn't seem feasible to me that Intel have been this far ahead for so long and now someone is just gonna leapfrog them from left field.

  15. 9% of a £500 card is £45. Not 'not much' at all.
  16. Actually, one of the next updates to the game (possibly 2.6) is expected to bring brand new netcode they've been working on to the game.
  17. Incorrect, the single player was the point of the Kickstarter, with the PU being unlocked as a stretch goal to be delivered after SQ42's release.
  18. I know you're talking about Kickstarter games in general, but if the 100s of video updates, 100s of community q&as, 100s of developer updates, and 100s of sneak previews/jump point runs does not prove the transparency of SC then I don't know what will convince people.
  19. Nexus 6P. Never had a single problem with it until I changed my password today. 2 Step Authentication turned on, but trying to use an application specific password doesn't work, it just says to enter my Google Account password. I've verified 1000000000000000000000 times that the password is correct. Quite frankly, I'm pissed the fuck off that nothing is working. Anyone have any help on this issue? Password works fine on PC my phone has decided to turn into the world's hugest fucking asshole and is literally worse than fucking Hitler.
  20. Do you know what? Why not. If they just made another Mass Effect game it would just feel hollow without Shepard in it somewhere. Do something new with the franchise. The ME Universe is far too interesting to just sit idle with one game concept.
  21. Someone was doing test on this on reddit. It blocks all searches that someone might put in to find help with child abuse, but does not block searches such as "How to buy guns as a child".
  22. I think it needs more depth, but in terms of gameplay, Titanfall was up there with the best
  23. Business sense doesn't mean shit if you're not covering R&D costs. I don't think enough people understand this. Let's say developing Zen cost AMD X Dollars. AMD need to figure out how many they expect to sell. So the cost of the chip will be base cost to manufacture + (X Dollars/divided number of chips expected to sell) + a little on top as profit. This is why you get price cuts in the future when they've now covered the cost of R&D and they can start selling for just base cost + little bit on top. EDIT: Considering how far behind AMD currently are and how much of an improvement Zen claims to be I cannot imagine the R&D costs of Zen being cheap.
  24. Anyone here thinking that they'll be grabbing an 8 Core Zen with an IPC comparable to Intel for less than an Intel 6 core is seriously deluded. AMD will take a smaller profit than Intel, because they have to to sell any. But the advantage Intel have is that they have room to lower their profit margin. AMD are already pretty much as low as they can go.
