  1. It is making me think it's time to go for a team red build in the new year. I'm compelled by SAM, 5000 series CPU+6000 series gpu might be interesting if their drivers are not complete ass. As always, going to wait for reviews and proper benchmarks before making the final decision. But all I can say is thanks Nvidia for botching your 3000 series release. Gave me time to see what your competition had in store.
  2. 7700k was notorious for bad TIM, I don't think you'll get very far without modifications. At least not the type of results you're probably looking for.
  3. If I were to guess, if you're 7700k was anything like mine, it's the TIM between the die and IHS. After delidding my CPU and applying some liquid metal my Temps dropped from high 80s when doing benchmarks or other cpu intensive tasks to mid 50s.
  4. @HelpfulTechWizard i gamed on many a CRT back in the day and never had coil whine so bad it would be heard over the game / computer itself. I have two LCDs in my office that make way more noise however... bad power supplies.
  5. Do you have any Internet Security software installed?
  6. Man the kids these days are missing out on when basically every computer component relied on DIP Switches to operate correctly.
  7. Why not update to the latest? They cracked the private key and can sign all PSP CFW now so that it installs like any other firmware. At least that's the way I remember it. I've owned PSP 1000, 2000, and PSPgo all with CFW and never had to use a Pandora's battery. If you don't have a big enough memory stick, not sure how you were going to do the firmware load to begin with? I would link you the site with all the info but fear that might be in violation of the forum rules.
  8. Oh yeah? You know you don't need a pandora's battery to load CFW on a PSP anymore. Or were you trying to do something else with the battery?
  9. I'm still waiting on the question about PSP custom firmware.
  10. It's a setting in the BIOS if it's possible... *taps microphone* is this thing on? For example on our laptops here at the office, I have to go into the BIOS>Integrated Devices>Onboard video>from there I can change the video memory from 32mb all the way up to a whopping 512mb.
  11. @CircleTech Man, Asrock used to be notorious for doing stuff like that. Like the AGP / PCIE boards they had. The big PITA was all the jumpers you needed to move over to switch between the two.
  12. If it's possible, you would have to do it from the computer's BIOS. Where in the BIOS will vary from board to board.
  13. Pissed off at least 3 other people who couldn't get their hands on a 3090....
