  1. CPU coil whine

    Slot* sorry
  2. What is your favorite Coolant?

    I use to be all for distilled water with a silver kill coil, but I did run into an issue with using the coil in the past. Now I guess I could worry about ph levels and use some biocide, but I prefer to just use either premixed or concentrated mixes now.
  3. AMD FreeSync monitor on Nvidia GPU

    You can keep telling me how wrong I am all you want, but to tell me what I should and should not post is quiet honestly, none of your damn business. Also if you take the time to do some research you would see I am pretty spot on. I even took a moment to re-educate myself due to your first response. To which I did discover that technically screen-tearing can occur at either below or above refresh rate... that it is only really noticeable to the human eye when it is above the refresh rate. This is due to the frequency of the occurrence, and also the amount of time this frame is actually present to view. if it occurs every 10-15 frames for .0069 seconds. when below refresh Vs 4-6 frames in a ROW for .027 seconds. The problem with when you go above is it can occur on a LOT of simultaneous frames... 4-6 was just a nice average number. So when you have about a 3% of a second to see it vs, .7% of a second it is a pretty big different.
  4. AMD FreeSync monitor on Nvidia GPU

    It might technically still be "Occurring", but you won't notice it. The screen tearing everyone complains about is 99.9% of the time from frame rate going over the refresh where you get a string of frames all having tearing. On say a 144hz monitor though the tearing occurs at a point that the refresh comes faster than the tearing can become noticeable. Also when you are BELOW the refresh rate it occurs much less often... as when you are above the refresh it happens on consecutive frames. Go test it now if you don't believe me. If you have a weak card turn your resolution down to 720p and run around with fast movements above the refresh rate, now increase it back to 1080 or supersample it and see if you notice it BELOW the refresh rate. The only time you will really wish you had Gsync or Freesync is when you have a game dipping from 80fps to 30's... where you will feel that nasty chug effect... that doesn't happen on gsync.
  5. So I am about to make some changes to my loop again. Since I have depleted my current supply of coolant, I am going to consider moving to something new. So that being said, what is your favorite coolant? How long have you used it? Have you had any issues clogged blocks? I am not concerned about staining as I generally replace my tubing every year or two anyways (it is cheap enough). In the future when I go back with hard-tubing again then I might mater more, but at this point I am looking for suggestions and will probably play with a few of the suggestions given. So fire away. What works best for you, what do you like and dislike about it?
  6. This is highly dependent on the chipset architecture. On an intel chip the difference is very minimal, but if you move to something like ryzen where the infinity fabric relies on ram speed... then the difference is actually MUCH bigger.
  7. AMD FreeSync monitor on Nvidia GPU

    Screen tearing most commonly happens when your FPS values go higher than your monitors refresh rate. This means that they get out of sync.... Lets make this simple (all that matters is the theory here and not the numbers I pick) Lets say your monitor can draw one frame every 1 second, but your gpu can draw 1 frame every .7 seconds. That means that every few seconds the gpu will render and send you monitor a frame while it is still drawing one, this will cause it to stop drawing it and instead draw the new one... which will cause the current frame to appear torn. Now on today's monitors with refresh rates over 200, this isn't as big of an issue, but lets say you are playing on an older 60hz monitor with a 1080ti... this would occur quiet often. That is why Vsync was invented and why it always caps your frames at your monitors refresh rate. It makes it so you can't send more frames to the monitor than it can draw. The downside to this is that it introduces input lag as your gpu is constantly waiting on your monitor. Generally the input lag isn't terrible and most of the time isn't noticeable, but it is there. That is why they introduced adaptive vsync which gives you the best of bother worlds... it limites the amount of input lag, while also trying to make sure you don't go over your refresh rate. Gsync, is a module that communicates with your gpu.. this means that they are always displaying the same hz rate. Freesync is also very similar to Gsync. Now what gsync does eliminate is the noticeable drop you feel when your fps goes from say 120 to 60.. it makes this transition feel smooth and makes it much less noticeable. That being said the Screen-tearing that is being mentioned is from your FPS going higher than your monitor can refresh the image.
  8. CPU coil whine

    Clicking sounds could be the sound of the metal from your heatsink heating/cooling. If you are hearing a whine then this could also be from your boards power delivery system which in most cases will also be located near the cpu. CPU's shouldn't be making any noises. Depending on the slow you have the GPU in... maybe you are hearing the whining from it? Your normal sources of whine are PSU, GPU, and motherboard power delivery. The whine on a GPU also comes from power delivery... so in general the whine comes from the vibrations of capacitors, transformer, inductor, etc. When these items have power running through them, they vibrate, when they hit their resonant frequency this gets much louder than usual etc.
  9. AMD FreeSync monitor on Nvidia GPU

    Also for the record, you won't notice any screen-tearing unless you got PAST 144 fps. If you start running into that issue you can set a frame-rate limit on your card or use something like adaptive Vsync which is similar to freesync. Gsync though... so nice.
  10. Hardline Questions

    Make sure you use the proper coolant for them. I lowered my temps by a full 10C using this newly discovered fluid. It is called "Blinker Fluid" and can be found at any local auto parts store. They Normally store it in the back so you will need to ask the person at the counter for it, but it is worth it and will reduce temps while also keeping your loop nice and clean. Lastly, it is only like $7-$8 a gallon.
  11. Or he could keep them zipped and save some file space... or better yet he could password protect his zip and put it on one of the many free cloud storage solutions offered to microsoft and google patrons.
  12. Also OP you can also just compress the files into a single Zip or Rar file with winzip/winrar/7zip. Not only will this give you a way to double check that the file integrity stays 100% after copying it over, you will also eliminate the file name length and path errors. You will also reduce the overall file size of the transfer by as much as 40-50% depending on the video format. Now this will take some time up front... I would guess for 400gb around 35minutes to maybe 2 hrs at most. I mean just transferring them over via copy or even cut and paste would be simpler, but if you want to reduce the size of the transfer and have a way to verify the integrity of the file after... then you could use the compression tools above.
  13. 780 vs 1060 6GB's specs

    A 1060 6gb is actually on par with a 980... which is a good bit faster than the 780. Going off benchmarks it looks to be about 25-35% faster depending on the game than your current 780. To answer your question on the cuda cores, starting with the 9 series the cuda cores were changed up. They are much more powerful than the previous gen ones, which is why the count went down.
  14. Ryzen 2400g + Gtx 1050ti

    At $149.99 after in store rebate... the 1600 is a clear winner here. Hell the 1700 is only 60 more for TWICE the cores. Also depending on your used market. You might be better off price and performance wise to look at picking up a 780,780ti, or 970. You can generally get these used for around the same amount as the 1050 or 1050/ti prices atm. These cards would also be MUCH faster than the 1050's. So if you have a decent market for it, then a used card might be your best bet to get good performance on a budget.
  15. Value of these CPU's?

    You can also look at the 2600k. When it came to overclocking the 2600k and 2700k were some of the best in the I line. Hell I still have a 2600k in a system that can hit 5ghz on water. That is just NUTS. It doesn't have the IPC of my 7700k, but even still it is 5 generations older and still performs within 15-20% of the new chips with their better IPC.
