  1. doesn't use all Vram

    You're good. Games will require differing amounts of vRAM depending on the number of textures loaded, the resolution of said textures, etc.
  2. Help im fat

    I totally agree, but the war on sugar is somewhat unwarranted. Sugar in high doses is absolutely terrible, but so is everything else. We certainly consume too much sugar, but that's due to companies putting it in everything.
  3. Help im fat

    Sugar is sugar. Artificial vs natural is irrelevant. The only extra thing fruit has going for it is fiber, which allows people to stay fuller for longer. Even something like HFCS is mostly fructose, which happens to be the dominant sugar in apples.
  4. GPU VRM INDUCTOR DAMAGED - NEED HELP ASAP

    Yeah, since it's closer to one of the actual components running in the engine But you're also right. I highly doubt anything got damaged, particularly since they're potted.
  5. Is this Normal?

    Yup, and the OP claims the GPU is idling, which it clearly is not. Not saying they're lying, but that we're not receiving enough information. Like, if they're running compute tasks in the background, or if the game is still in the background.
  6. Is this Normal?

    I'm not convinced the GPU is idling since the GPU usage reading is 94% and power target is 73%. Assuming the two screenshots go together, and based on the information on the other screenshot, it's reasonable to believe they do.
  7. Frames or Refresh?

    I played Life Is Strange: Before The Storm at 60FPS the whole game, and it was smooth(monitor is running at 144Hz). It obviously won't be as good as 144FPS, but it wasn't any different to me than playing on a 60Hz monitor. It very well could be, but not something I could perceive. @WereCat @panther420
  8. GPU VRM INDUCTOR DAMAGED - NEED HELP ASAP

    Not the best analogy since the body of the car has no direct bearing on whether or not the engine or other components function. In this case, we're damaging a component directly that performs a huge function.
  9. GPU VRM INDUCTOR DAMAGED - NEED HELP ASAP

    You're good. Functionality likely was not impacted.
  10. How to test gpu no psu

    You can also just plug the card into the slot and see if it outputs an image to the display. Without sufficient supplemental power connectors, it'll display an image that states to connect the six-pin and eight-pin connectors(whatever's required), but at least you will know it's at least somewhat functional.
  11. Linustechtips logo text is pixelated on mobile

    It's definitely less sharp than the surrounding elements. When you zoom in on PC, the back arrow looks sharp, and the logo becomes visibly less sharp.
  12. What Music Service do you use?

    iTunes for the most part. I store my iTunes library on my server, and then use Plex and iTunes to stream it. And since I store it on my server, it makes it really easy to just copy it to my phone.
  13. PC Boot Looping & Static Electricity

    Off, and without power going to it.
  14. PC Boot Looping & Static Electricity

    Is your outlet properly grounded? That would be a reason why the system is being electrified.
  15. Hi/hello... oh who knows what to put...

    I'm in the same boat as you. I'd like to do PC builds constantly, but I can't unfortunately. I have bills to pay, and other things I want to do(house upgrades, car upgrades, etc).
