  1. That was something I enabled when trying to fix it. I have then restaured the settings to default in the nvidia cp and it didn't change anything
  2. Hello, I have a problem with what I assume is antialiasing. Some games show white lines/borders even though I have all antialiasing and anisotropic settings maxed out Here's a screenshot and a small video as an example (you can see it around the gun and on the safe walls) As shown in the video, the antialiasing and anisotropic filtering are maxed out I also did that on the nvidia control panel, but it didn't do anything (sorry, it's in portuguese) Other games also show some signs of this, although not as pronounced.... Anyone knows what's up? Thanks
  3. I chose the optimal settings, but changing stuff didn't seem to help
  4. Hey, so I got a new PC and among the first few games that I installed was Need For Speed. However, it shows a lot of white dots on reflective surfaces, and I don't know if the graphics card is dying. It's more noticeable in-game but also in this live-action/pre-rendered shot (headlights, mostly) https://streamable.com/kp50 What do you guys think? Is the GPU dead?
  5. Hello! I'm building a PC and I've actually ordered the Asus GTX 1060 Turbo today. Link However, I started considering cancelling the order, and getting the Gigabyte G1 Gaming for ~32€ more Link (Listed as 369, but it's 10% off today) I'd really like to go with the cheapest option here for budget reasons, unless there is something really wrong with the blower design on the Asus side, like heavy thermal throttling... So what's your opinion? Is an extra fan really worth 32€? Thanks y'all
  6. Yeah, I also saw that page before posting, but this is my first build and I don't know which of those specs are actually meaningful for a basic gaming computer. Sorry, I should have included the specs (and will now edit the post), but I'll be getting the i5-6500, so I can't really overclock! Alright, thanks! I don't think I'll need many more drives or expansion cards in the future so if these are the main differences I think I'll stick to the B150...
  7. Hello, so I'm building a PC and initially chose a H110 MSI motherboard, but have since then decided on a B150. However, there I see a lot of people just recommend the H170 straight away. Is there any real difference between the two? The motherboards in question are the MSI B150M PRO-VDH and the MSI H170M PRO-VDH simply because they're the cheapest with each chipset and I really don't want to spend much money. Please explain why one might be better than the other one! Thanks a lot Edit: I forgot to include the specs of the PC, which is somewhat relevant - i5 6500 // 2x4 GB of RAM // 240 GB SSD + 1 TB HDD // either a GTX 1060 or a RX 480. Also the case has 2 USB 3.0 connectors and an SD card reader on the front, but from my quick research, getting a board with that many headers will be much more expensive
  8. Hey, so I'm building my first PC with an i5-6500, 8 GB of RAM, and either a RX 480 or a GTX 1060. My question is how much wattage do I need for a build of this kind, because I narrowed my power supply search down to 3 based on STRMfrmXMN's whitelist/tiers, but don't know which is best for me, based on wattage and price: XFX TS 450W 80+ Bronze (56,90€) Seasonic S12II 430W 80+ Bronze (59,90€) XFX TS 550W 80+ Bronze (64,90€) I'd appreciate some advice and suggestions Thanks PS: I included the prices because I'm on a really limited budget, so hopefully it'll give you an idea of prices around here
  9. I have ... no graphics card because I'm in the process of building my first gaming PC right now (thinking of buying a 480 though) gibe nao pls?
  10. What about physically disabling the sensor? is this something that is sottered in, or does it have some kind of plug?
  11. Please, only respond with ways to disable the thermal throttling; I have been looking into this for months now, the problem isn't in the cooling. Also, I am well aware that it is unsafe and might damage the computer, but it is my last resort...
  12. Hey, so a while back, I've made this post aboout my computer thermal throttling - http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/367641-95-%C2%BAc-on-cpu-throttling-for-apparent-reason/ After being in reparis for weeks, they've sent it back saying the problem is in the motherboard and didn't fix it, so I assume it's a problem in the temperature sensor. What I'd like to know is if there is a way to turn the thermal throttling off completely, other than doing it in the BIOS (because I the option isn't there) This is a Samsung 300E5A laptop Please and thank you
  13. Try using a wide rubberband between the screw and the screwdriver, press as hard as you can (without breaking the laptop) and twist while pressing down on the rubberband/screw
  14. I hope that replacing the thermal paste fixes the overheating issues... reinstalling windows seems a bit radical lol. Otherwise, yeah.. I'll have to look into buying a new laptop towards christmas time, or hopefully build my first real PC and stop having these silly problems
  15. I always run in High Performance, I only mentioned it because back when I reset the BIOS settings, I noticed a CPU option was defaulted to power savings
