  1. Hey everyone! I've been noticing that I am getting a lot less FPS than I am used to (i have a 144hz monitor) in some titles (BF1 and Fortnite in busy areas mainly) and I think I may be bottlenecking my GPU. I have a gtx 1080 and I may have paired it with a subpar CPU (everyone told me an i5 6600k would be fine, but I think I am encountering some issues in games with larger player counts). Would it make sense for me to pop in a 7700k ? or am I better to just scrap the mobo too and jump to the newer intel series mobos for the additional 2 cores? The reason I ask if its the CPU is be
  2. hi guys, i just got a 1080 and did a fresh windows install. im finding my audio keeps cutting in and out in game. not sure what the cause is. i5 6600k, 1080, 16gb ram, ssd 128gb, hdd 1tb. I installed and uninstalled the realtek hd drivers and it persists with both usecases... is the PCMR too complicated for me? lol
  3. the audio also sometimes cuts out in the stutters
  4. with a USB using the media creation tool.
  5. Hey guys! I have a windows 10 based pc with an i5 6600k and a gtx 1070, 16gb ram and a 1TB ssd. I've noticed a lot of stuttering in games lately, and I'm not sure what the cause is. How would i diagnose the problem? how would I record the dips to give you guys better information? I've tried re installing graphics drivers with DDU, removing all overclocks... I'm at a bit of a loss as to why im having these problems.
  6. to get that clock on mine i had to change the vcore to 1.32v!
  7. we are using the rogers 2 in 1 solution. That shouldn't be causing any problems on Ethernet ?
  8. even on a wire, the connection is often problematic.
  9. Hey guys ! My family has had rogers for a very long time. Its consistently been inconsistent and I'm wondering if bell would be a good alternative. On their website it seems that the cost per mb/s download speed is higher, but bell also uses fiber... which to my understanding gives each individual a more direct connection to the ISP and you don't get the same problems of the internet fucking up during peak hours? Is the price increase worth it? or are we fucked for internet anyway we go in this part of the world
  10. I haven't really done any extensive testing! just curious to hear if anyone else with beefy systems has run into similar problems
  11. Hey guys! I have a pretty solid system: 6600k, evga 1070 (with updated bios so it won't catch on fire), 16 gb ram, boot ssd, and a 1tb HDD for games and other things... For the most part, BF1 runs near the silky smooth 144fps I'm looking for on my monitor! However, when i get into the big 64 player modes, it starts to chug! the frame rates take a huge dive and sometimes i even notice light stuttering... its weird, because in campaign with even more things going on and more things on screen I don't have any performance issues... is this more to do with networking issues? or is the H
  12. hey buddy, I have a evga gtx 1070. they have a forum post on their website that outlines what they will do if you happen to damage your GPU during thermal pad installation. TLDR they will just replace your card if you screw it up... if you don't want to attempt the installation in the first place, you can just ship your card to them and they will send you a new one with the fix applied. Hope that helps -Chris P
  13. i did use his video Kat... im just saying i was wondering if my card is defective because it routinely hits vale "1" for power limit even without OC
  14. not 120 power usage. but like in precision xoc jayz2cents said it wasnt supposed to ever hit 1. mine continuously hits 100 percent for a split second then not i guess. I Haven't raised the power limit of my card so it hasnt been goign above 100 percent even with a 150 mhz offset.
  15. Hey guys, I have an exga 1070 and am using precision xoc to oc. Ive noticed that the gpu hits the power limit a lot even at stock frequencies, which jay said wasnt supposed to happen even under overclockign conditions. it doesnt really seem to affect the OC of the card but i was just wondering if thats a problem with the card at all? is it bad for it to be hitting its power limit ?
