    Are Surround Gaming Headphones BS?

    Honestly, after this video, I feel like I learned nothing the shown tables in the video were unclear to me what you were comparing against what for example I saw headphones compared to sound cards ....
  2. that looks interesting, if you can find back the link, please do share. thank you very much I found his channel "actually hardcore overclocking" but not what you're talking about
  3. now maybe what they meant is actually : the overwhelming majority of the time it doesn't work IF you're also overclocking your CPU??? a clarification would be great if nothing else
  4. yeah ok, thank you all for your replies @Alex Atkin UK remember ASUS rep <> ASUS official statement In the video Ivan also says : "the overwhelming majority of the time" it does not work which would mean something like 55 to 65% where it doesn't work if I want to put it in numbers ? that sounds crazy high. and NOBODY speaks about it apart from a high number of people accross forums which basically means very little in the way of statistics ??? just like if you search for hard drive issues, you'll find lots of answers, but the stats for hard drive failures are more or less constant (apart from a few models here & there) sitting at around 1% to 10% with the average being closer to 3% AFAIK keep the comments flowing, I'd like to hear other's opinion too. Thank you very much
  5. Hello, Recently I discovered linus tech tips. I must say I'm really a fan of how you explain some stuff. I'm kind of a techie myself, been fixing computers for years... Anyways, what I wanted to ask is an explanation or a more thorough video on this Linus random comment @14:04 in the video: Apparently an ASUS rep said to Linus "it just doesn't work" it made me ponder if we could really trust XMP, if the memory modules were tested enough ? where is the issue lies exactly ? or "issues" if there's several sources. is it the different CPU integrated memory controllers ? is it the overclocking/overvolting of those due to XMP ? So I made some research about it, and found a lot of people with problems on forums with XMP however .... As we all know, 3% of people with problems can make a lot of noise whereas people satisfied generally say nothing. It's also an overclocking feature some people may be unable to understand that & not set it up correctly ? So it could in my opinion go up to 6 or 10% people having issues with XMP easily, but that would NOT mean XMP is not trustable ? My point here is : that I can't find any thorough testing of XMP and the stability of this feature I guess it all boils down to : if I were to advice a new computer for a gamer with lots of budget, should I advise to setup XMP, or use default "safe" values instead. or is manually setting it up to stabilize a computer 100% the only way .... Alternatively what makes XMP not being trusted ? sitenote : I also watched this video about RAM speeds : I knew some of this already, but it doesn't really answer Thanks for reading.
