      PayPal Problem - Some payments not going through   20 May 2017

      PayPal appears to be experiencing problems at the moment, resulting in people being billed but the transaction showing as failed on our end. If you have signed up for a new subscription, and the transaction is showing as pending on the forum, so you haven't gained floatplane access yet, and you have waited more than 10 minutes after purchasing it in PayPal, please go to https://linustechtips.com/main/failed_transaction_fix.php and follow the instructions. If you have any issues, please send me a PM (hover over my picture or username and click "message"), including the transaction ID, and I will try and sort it out for you.

  1. Yeah, that's why I prefer looking at that reading.
  2. Between 1357 and 1380
  3. Strange thing regarding the GPU-Z and Heaven benchmark - GPU-Z shows 1357MHz, while Heaven shows 1510MHz. Does Heaven show the boosted values?
  4. Please read all posts 1st...
  5. around 60 degrees. No thermal throttling.
  6. Hi, I own a Gigabyte nVidia GeForce GTX 950. It's kind of a lost silicon lottery, since it doesn't OC very much - however, I was able to put a couple more MHz in this thing, giving me stable 1350MHz at full load. But I noticed something strange - It does OC to the said frequency, but the frequency decreases over time - from 1350 even to 1320. It sometimes goes back to the 1350, but that frequency degradation overtime is worrying me. Is it normal? Voltage has been been increased, so it does get enough juice.
  7. Ah, yes, so I guessed right It doesn't bother me that much, the shelf space isn't a problem too.
  8. What do you mean that I can't output to HDMI or use a wireless controller? i used to own a PS3 Slim and I had it hooked up to my TV via HDMI and I use wireless sixaxiss controller just fine. Do you mentioned that regarding the PS2 part of my question?
  9. Hi everyone, I have many games for PS2 and PS3 platforms and for nostalgia reasons I'd like to purchase a console(s) to play them. However, I'm not sure which exact model should I buy: - a launch PS3 Fat for most features (including PS2 support) and the looks (I think Fat version looked the best imho) - a PS3 Slim (not Super Slim, I hate that optical drive mechanism) and a PS2 (pref. Fat one) What would be better?
  10. Hi, I am a proud owner of a i7-3770 (non K) CPU that I theoretically managed to overclock using MSI H61M-P20 G3 motherboard. The only overclock I could really do is to increase the multiplier to x39. But here is when things are getting strange. In the Task manager (Windows 10 Pro) the CPU is shown as clocked up to 4.21GHz. Under full load, like when I'm rendering a video, the CPU really works @ 4.21GHz for a while, then it dips down to 3.9GHz, so more realistic values. But, what's more strange is the CPU-Z, which shows that the multiplier is only x37 and the core clocked @ 3.691GHz. What's up with those numbers?
  11. The problem has been resolved. No solution mentioned above was the case.
  12. That'll have to wait until I come back from work. I was wondering if someone could suggest what could be wrong so I could do more than one test at the time when I come back.
  13. Yes, no changes. I tried both cards in a single config.
  14. Hi, so I build this PC for my friend. It was supposed to be cheap but a huge improvement over his ancient machine which has an AMD Athlon 5200+ and a GeForce 9500 GT in it. The specs are as follows: CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 G0 @ 2.4GHz MOBO: Asus P5N-E SLI RAM: 8GB (4x 2GB) Hynix DDR2 800MHz PSU: Cooler Master B600 600W GPU: 2x nVidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti in SLI SSD: Sandisk U100 128GB HDD: Hitachi 1TB 7200rpm, 32MB cache Chassis: Zalman Z3 Plus CPU cooler: stock OS: Windows 10 Pro What is the problem? PC randomly freezes or just turns off the screen and it cannot be brought back. HDD is working for a while, then it stops working as well. Only a reboot brings it back. This freeze/"blackout" can occur when PC is just idling, under load (like installing new software, watching some movies, having a bunch of programs opened while web browsing, or just gaming) and it can happen in any given time - right after boot up, after 10 minutes or even after many hours of uninterrupted work. What I did so far? Installed all of the latest drivers for both OS and all my other devices. Did run a stress test using StartLX software, which checked CPU, motherboard, memory and drives. I stress tested it again in Windows using AIDA64 - I checked CPU, memory and drivers - in both tests, PC seemed to be working fine. The only differences in connected devices in comparison to what my friend used are: he used a VGA cable to connect his monitor to the PC, I used an HDMI to connect it to a TV (since I don't have another monitor to connect), keyboard - I used a PS/2 and my friend used a USB one, and a mouse - I used a wireless dongle to use my wireless mouse while he used his usb wired one. The problem is still showing, still randomly. What could be the issue? What else could I test to verify what the hell is going on? It is supposed to be a present - I know it doesn't contain the latest parts, but this was all I could afford to hunt down after many hours of sitting on the sites similar to your craigslist.
  15. Can't do it. Newer PC doesn't have IDE.
