  1. Is it possible to frankenstein the rgb connector to a usb cable to power LED's ?
  2. I have the same issue at the moment. I have a Z77 Sabertooth mobo though. Did you ever find a fix for this ?
  3. Thats how it should be, some people upgrade sooner than need be. But if you got the money for the toys you want, than splurge!
  4. So not sure what is going on, but the other day my pc crashed after starting a game and it gray screened and fans were running hard. I just recently bought a used gpu. But before I installed card my pc was already crashing, thinking it was the power supply cleaned it out due to alot of dust. Now works. I also had the cpu overclocked before I cleaned out the psu, figuring it was causing it to crash. Took overclock off with a different power supply games were running fine. After cleaning out power supply reinstalled and was fine, thats when I installed new gpu and ran game and it crashed with gray screen and fans were loud and running high. I just happened to check event viewer the day after and a 0xc0000022 error was showing a bunch of times the day I had the crash, From what I can gather it's related to legacy and directplay in programs and features. Also my hdd's are 7+ years old and my hdd that the os is installed takes forever and makes noises like it's working constantlly. I know i'm kind of all over the place here with all the events that happened, LOL sorry about that. Thanks in advance with any help provided. Also forgot to mention with original setup before troubleshooting everything, it was crashing like every 5 to 15 minutes while gaming and got a power related error on startup after crash when my cpu was was overclocked, but before this recent crash party, i was able to game fine, but I think build up of dust in power supply over time might of started all the crashing. Tonight when I get home going to try a fresh install of the os maybe on another drive I have. I did order some new drives, but won't receive till next week.
  5. i know, but like you said easier said than done
  6. I think the cpu is going to bottleneck the gpu from running at its full potential, so i wouldn't be reaping any benefit from getting a higher powered card. I don't know, the one positive would be future proof gpu for a future build with newer parts.
  7. It looks like the 1660 ti is closer to the 980 ti
  8. Yeah I figured, but wasn't 100% sure
  9. I know I saw the benchmark. Thanks though.
  10. Which would be the better to get ? I feel they both have advantages and disadvantages.
  11. This is kind of off topic what kind of monitor do you use for your setup ? @Whiro
