    Question about screen tearing

    I don't think that's how it works. I tried limiting the FPS to 60 on my 60 hz display from the AMD catalyst menu. The screen tearing is actually a lot worse than with an uncapped framerate.

    Question about screen tearing

    Will I get screen tearing on a 144 hz display WITHOUT freesync/gsync capabilities and vsync off if the game runs at about 60 FPS? Why would I want a 144 hz display if my PC can only handle 60 FPS? Well it can reach 144 FPS and go over it in SOME games. But quite a lot of visually demanding games run around 60. And I hate vsync as it causes input lag.

    Is my GPU hanging/ sagging?

    The PCIE power cable felt a bit tense, pulling the card down. I did a bit of wire management to loosen it and put a pencil under the card to hold it. This time, it felt like less force was needed. And the result. How is it?

    Is my GPU hanging/ sagging?

    Should I keep it in the "STR8 BOX" position? I did find a pencil which holds it at pretty much the same height. It still feels that it applies too much force from below. No idea how much force is enough.

    Is my GPU hanging/ sagging?

    I looked at it and it doesn't seem perfectly straight. Maybe it is just me? Maybe I wasn't holding the camera properly? I put something to prop it up a bit but didn't leave it in there with the PC on as it restricted airflow. It felt as if it pushed the card upwards kind of hard. But it does look straight. I will see myself out. I wired some fishing line through some of the case holes with just a tiny bit of tension to hold the card. This is how it sits currently. Still doesn't look straight. And finally, with the unit on the SIDE. The fishing line is applying 0 force on the GPU in this one. It still doesn't look right. Is it supposed to be like this? Am I the world's worst photographer? Is there some permanent damage on the motherboard or GPU?

    GPU stuck at 100% usage

    Today I used the GPU for a longer period of time than yesterday and the issue is still here. MSI wasn't causing it. Still stays at around 50 degrees in "idle" after turning off the game unless I restart to actually make it sit idle around 30-35 degrees.

    GPU stuck at 100% usage

    The higher temperatures were reported by MSI and CPUID HWmonitor. Pretty much the same temperature around 50. And I could feel the extra heat coming out through the case fans. Now, the air coming out of the case while idle is around the room temperature. The GPU fans are also on 0 RPM while idle now, but they were spinning before uninstalling. I don't think I want to reinstall MSI and see if the heating happens again.

    GPU stuck at 100% usage

    I uninstalled MSI Afterburner and now I see that my temperature slowly decreases below 50 degrees to the 30-35 idle temperature after turning off games. I have no idea why MSI caused my GPU to heat up.

    GPU stuck at 100% usage

    0% in task manager as well. But the temperature NEVER drops below 50 degrees to the usual 30-35 idle. Unless I restart the PC or don't start up any games that stress the GPU. Could MSI use up my GPU for no reason? Never did any overclocking.

    GPU stuck at 100% usage

    This ONLY happens while playing a graphically demanding game and after turning off the game. While gaming the temperature is around 75 degrees. While at full load after closing the game it is around 50. While idle it stays around 30-35. I can make it actually go idle by restarting the PC or not starting up any games that stress the GPU. Then it goes to 0% around 30-35 degrees. The only program that detects the 100% GPU load is MSI Afterburner. CPUID HWMonitor says 0%. Process explorer can't find any processes using the GPU. But something is certainly using the GPU because of the 50 degrees in temperature. Windows Defender says I am clean. Same from Malwarebytes. Might also run RogueKiller and ADWCleaner but I doubt they will find anything.

    Question about Freesync

    Thank you.

    Question about Freesync

    If I get a 144hz monitor with freesync, do I HAVE to get up to 144 FPS in order to get the benefits of freesync? Does freesync still work if I am running at 40 FPS, 60 FPS, 100 FPS etc? My PC isn't exactly capable to maintain 144FPS at 1080p in very demanding games like BF1, Apex Legends, Shadow of the Tomb raider etc. But I can easily get 1080p 144FPS in games like CSGO, LOL, SC2 etc.

    Barely any sound from sources BEHIND me

    I can't find an option for 3.1 anywhere. A workaround I found was to use 5.1 and disable the rear speakers from windows. Same result. Even if I select stereo mode from windows, realtek and in game I can still barely hear sound from sources directly behind me. In the Levels tab from windows sound manager I noticed that by default there are too many sources maxed at 100: side, center, subwoofer, rear, front. I noticed that if I try to play test sounds it works only from the left/right speakers. No sound comes from the center speaker. BUT the center speaker does work. I can clearly hear sound from it while playing games/ listening to music. I think for some reason windows detects anything I plug in as 5.1 surround, even headphones. Or am I supposed to barely hear any noise from sources behind me?

    Barely any sound from sources BEHIND me

    Hello. I barely hear anything in games from sound sources behind me. If someone shoots his gun right near me or if there is an explosion or if someone is blasting music it sounds fine if I look at the sound source or if it is on my side. But if I put my back to it I can barely hear it. This is the audio system I mainly use (couldn't find it on any international websites) https://www.emag.ro/sistem-audio-akai-3-1-bluetooth-radio-fm-negru-ss028a-3208c/pd/DJ5J8SBBM/ . It is plugged into the green 3.5 mm jack. I have also tried with my headphones. Same result. https://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-PC-USB-Headset-line/dp/B005HWEZGG Windows 10 64 bit Gigabyte B85-HD3 i5 4570 RX 590 No dedicated soundcard
