  1. So even something like a cx750m would still be insufficient just because it's a cx model?Also, I thought that drawing too much power would make my PC shut off entirely. Are you saying that the PSU can also just throttle the system to keep power draw down?
  2. i5-4570 Asrock Z97 Pro4 Corsair cx600m PSU (600W) I know the PSU might be cutting it a bit close, but it should be fine, especially since I'm not overclocking the GPUs. I should add that the system performed perfectly in Unigine Heaven, scoring about 2000 (almost exactly 2x what I scored with just one R9 270X). Also, if I were drawing too much power would the system not just shut off rather than throttle the GPUs?
  3. A couple days ago I picked up another R9 270X to put in my system, which already had a single R9 270X in it. Software shows that I do have both cards installed and that the one with my monitor plugged into it is the "master", with the other one being the "slave". The problem is that since I installed the second card, my gaming performance has literally worsened. In BF4 for example, I went from getting a constant 50-60fps at a mix of high/ultra settings to experiencing fairly frequent drops to the 30s and 40s. It's pretty clear that nothing has improved since installing the second card. I know that both GPUs are being used while I am running a game because MSI Afterburner reports that the usage % and temperature of both cards goes up. I have also tried messing with the crossfire settings in catalyst control center, switching between AFR friendly, 1x1 optimal, and default crossfire modes. These didn't seem to do anything. I did not update any video drivers after installing the second card, but that is my next step in troubleshooting. What else could be going on here? Has anyone else had this problem? Edit: I know I'm not getting any thermal throttling because one card runs at about 65 and the other at about 80 under load.
  4. I am looking for a set of tips for my sennheiser momentum in-ears as I have lost one of the medium-sized ones that come with the headphones. As Linus says in his video review, most tips that are compatible with IE8s should work with the Momentums. However, I have yet to see any online that look like they would work with the Momentums. If anyone could suggest some tips that work with the Momentums, that would be great. I am specifically looking for silicone tips here, I'm not interested in foam tips.
  5. Ok, I think I found what the problem was. It seems that MSI Afterburner was going full retard and the file sizes were way too huge. With MSI afterburner, a 2-minute video at 1080p60fps took up 7.8GB of space. With OBS, a 2-minute video at 1080p 60fps took up 25MB. Thank you everyone for all the help, and I guess i'll be using OBS for recording from now on.
  6. It worked! Thanks! The only problem now is that it still take 200 minutes to upload a 7.53GB 2-minute video (1080p60fps) to youtube. Could this be because the format that the file is saving as is not supported and YouTube has to change it? I remember uploading a 3-minute video at 1080p 30fps in the past that only took about 15 minutes to upload. Surely the difference between 30 and 60fps isn't that huge?
  7. As the title says, all of my recordings, no matter the game or recording software, look crappy when playing them back. My framerate in-game while i'm recording is fine, still 120+ in CS:GO etc. I mainly use MSI Afterburner to record. Here are my MSI Afterburner video settings: Example of a video recorded at these settings and uploaded to YouTube: http://youtu.be/_GPNksfMAjc? The resolution also looks shitty in the video but that could just be youtube's compression. This is what the properties of the file look like. As you can see, the framerate says 60fps: I have tried using OBS as well without result. I have drawn the conclusion that it has to be something going wrong when the video is encoded, since my framerate is fine ingame.

  8. I really love how LMG has helped me throughout my journey of learning about tech stuff. Without LMG, I would have never built my awesome PC that I have now and I would know almost nothing about how computers work. Thank you Linus!
  9. What I like about the Xperia Z2: I like that it's fully waterproof to submersion, I think it's the first phone I've seen to do that and it's pretty cool. What I like about dbrand: Well I really like the LTT skin they put on this Xperia Z2 and I'm wondering if they do iPhone 5S's because that's what I have!
  10. Why not? Because of the torrenting? I'm sure there's plenty of people who have pirated Watch_Dogs in this very thread. I normally wouldn't pirate a game, I just thought that Ubisoft didn't deserve my money after their complete neglect of PC gamers.
  11. I torrented it but it runs like absolute ass and it was clearly optimized for consoles by the developers, so I am going to be taking my 13.21GB of storage back.
