  1. The 6800XT arrived last Monday. I’ve been troubleshooting it ever since because it remains unstable in my desktop for some reason.

    stock clocks on both the CPU and ram, and still unstable. DDU as well and the same issue. Updated my bios and still broken. Disabling smart access memory makes it better...

    This whole time basic functions like mining, Minecraft and YouTube work perfectly fine but once I put it under a gaming load it crashes in 5 minutes - 2 hours. 

    the fix was putting it in PCIe 3 mode. I haven’t reinstalled windows yet and I really should since it’s still too unstable for raytracing games, but it works in traditionally rendered games

      Did you buy it used? Most used AMD cards nowadays will have mining BIOSes flashed that alter the mem timings and voltages which make it instable in gaming. I bought a 5700XT used and the owner flashed the BIOS with a mining one and it would crash constantly in games only but not mining. Luckily my card has triple BIOS so I just flipped the switch and it fixed everything.

      new from Linus “verified actual gamer”

      I would repaste and washer mod it. 

  2. got a 6800xt TUF through "vag" today

    ~1000$USD so about ~1300$CAD, anywhere 200-500$ cheaper than the (reference card) scalper market here. AMD's website would've charged about 1000$CAD but it is near impossible to go through because of how poor their checkout system is

    I found that a lot of the questions were ones that I couldn't have just known so I had to trial and error. I really should've held out for the rest of the year but the 760 is really getting on my nerves.. 

    1. Curufinwe_wins


      jealous, I was just too late myself. Didn't realize it was a thing until rather late in the video

      Congratulations ! Welcome to the club of people who managed to get next gen Cards without getting extremely f-ed over ! I've got a Palit Geforce RTX 3060 Dual 12 GB with the OG GA106-300 die.

      1300$ is way too expensive for a GPU but at this point, fuck the 760 so much 

      this is how I tricked myself into getting a Radeon VII two years ago.. 🙂

  3. I am kinda searching for a new (probably will make custom) keyboard but I forgot what I prefer (tactile or linear). I remember liking heavy linears (MX Blacks) but I haven't used them in 4 years and I am not sure anymore. I used MX speeds and reds recently but I hate them too. Current keyboard is Romer G so I have no idea what other tactiles feel like


    1. Prodigy_Smit


      Anytime anyone asks me what keeb to buy and they have no preference for switches I will suggest silent tactiles like cherry browns or cherry grey depending if they like light or heavy switches respectively. I personally use blues but I am kind of annoyed by the loud af switches.

      Alpacas are good linear switches and glorious pandas are good tactile. Both are on the more "budget" end. Otherwise Zealpc makes good but expensive switches.

  4. 5 years later and the lighting for the I key on my keyboard is dying. The blue sometimes just doesn't work. What a shame since the default colour is blue. My preferred shade of pink is also affected by this.


    1. ProjectBox153


      Hey, it's been a while. One of my mechanical keyboards has a key (don't remember which one) that doesn't change color. It's always solid red. What keyboard are you using?

      Is this high school, college, or after college? (General life, at work, etc?)

    3. themctipers


      I’ll take advice for all of those situations 

    4. Windows7ge


      It helps if you're a social butterfly. For highschool/college joining clubs basically forces you to socially interacts and that usually results in some friendships. You could also hangout with your current friends friends and meet people that way.


      When I entered college I hung out with this one guy during my orientation. I lost touch with him for a few semesters but ran into him again and he introduced me to a huge group of people I started hanging out with.


      This later happened again with an old friend from high school so sometimes you just get lucky with situations like these.


      Making friends as an adult is a little harder unless you're into bars and other social activities like sports. Of course you can always get to know your neighbors and hangout with them. Then, again, if you're a social butterfly striking up conversations with strangers can sometimes lead to something.

  6. My 6s+ served me very well up until I replaced it with a 12 Pro Max this year. Farewell A9!
  7. @DrMacintoshyou have any idea on how to make the UI of my iPhone smaller? I know they made the UI larger in iOS 11 (my daily was 6s+ 10.3.3 until yesterday, where I got a 12 pro max) but it looks like it barely puts up any more content despite being a much larger screen because the text is so large.

    I am already using the smallest size font with no display zoom (accessibility or the thing called display zoom in display and brightness)

    1. xinsight


      I agree 🙂 Whats the point of all the screen res real estate if everything is big like Kid/Grandpa size stuff on screen.

  8. so all of my reception issues on my 6s for the past 5 years has been caused by:

    - literally it being so ancient it doesn't support 600mhz or 850mhz in my area

    Which means that I've been only using 1900mhz ... so THATS why my coverage goes from -80 to -100 to -117 to NO SERVICE... and I've always seen anywhere from -110 to -127

  9. there is no minimum, the maximum is probably somewhere around 5ghz+ but realistically you're going to be stuck by the FCLK to be about 4000mhz ish, +/- some because lottery like zen2 as someone as said earlier, difference between 3200 and 3600 isn't that much and it *can* cost a lot more. Personally I'd just buy 3600 for like 10$ more than 3200 and be that my ram can OC to 4000 if I wanted to, but XMP is already fine.
  10. try swapping it from white/red/white/red to red/white/red/white ive had this same issue with ddr3 on my z68-v pro, mixing capacities sucks but eventually you'll find a combination that works (although you may be fucked over by maximum clockspeed via overclocking; xmp is a overclock)
  11. they have a mixture of iPhone 4 and iPad Pro vibes to me (stainless steel antenna bands)
  12. I am both ready to get another iPhone yet disappointed that I am buying another iPhone for myself

    Earlier this year I thought I could hold onto my 6s for another year, but not anymore (everything is super slow, cracked display, random amazon tier battery). I really wanted 120hz but it's just not happening.. I also was hoping that there would be good competition from android manufacturers.. nothing appeals to me though.


    LG - garbage software.. not worth considering, even on steep discount

    Pixel - garbage hardware for a premium price, might as well buy a iPhone

    OnePlus - only 7 pro was worth it, the 7T and 8 wasn't appealing (price)

    Razer - RP3 is dead

    ASUS - ROG phone 3 really expensive instead of being a banging midrange device

    Xiaomi - a lot of these phones just aren't viable due to not having US LTE bands, but K30 ultra is not even coming out of China


    Samsung - ... I wanted the S20, but then 1080p 120hz upscaled to 1440p for 1000$. I personally can't notice it but it's the same as the iPhone XR/11, I can't notice the difference between 326ppi and 400+, but I just can't live with myself knowing its like 1366x768. This is in addition to the fuck you that is no software updates after 2 years, and no security patches after 3 years

    I waited for the S21, which was supposed to fix it to be 1440p/120hz but only S20 FE happened which sucks. Note 20 was also a pick for me but the note 20 is actually MORE EXPENSIVE than the iPhone this year 



    please ignore the 'note 20', there is only the 'note 20 ultra' which is actually the normal phone.



    Really excited for A14, coming from a dying A9. 2 node jumps (16nm to 5nm), 2nd gen in house GPU (A11 was first), and like 3 generations of 50% faster CPU.. Hopefully it's about as large in a usability bump going from the A4 to the A9 (my first phone upgrade; I was debating between a note 5 and a 6s+ at that time). The 765G can go commit no breathing, knowing it's still somehow comparable to A9. Wifi 6 is a bonus since I already have a wifi 6 router


    edit: if anyone has another point of view or contention, please do tell. I want all the opinions on this before deciding

      I'm gonna get myself the iPhone 12 mini.

      Still not a bad choice. I only wish my 7 pro had wireless charging

    4. themctipers


      I have heard about the 7 pro since a couple of my friends also have it, but it isn't as much of a deal here as it is in the US. If I remember, in the US you could've gotten it for about ~400$USD new with T mobile  back in early 2020, which was an absolute steal. Here in Canada, a used/refurbished one is about 500$, and it's already a year old. 

      When it comes to android, I'm a lot more worried about the software support over time than the hardware. The hardware inside the 7 pro is excellent and I do love the fact that it doesn't have a hole punchy display AND it's 90hz, but it's pretty much getting android 11 and that's it, a year of security patches after. 

      I know about rooting and installing 3rd party roms, but it doesn't address my main concern: patches. I don't really give a fuck about what google has done with android, but I do care about fixing vulnerabilities and 3rd party roms just don't fix it. 

      For 500$ currently for a used phone that will only get 1 more major OS update (android 11, Q4 2020), and will become EOL in Q1 2022, that's a really big oof if I do buy it today


      However.. 7 pro might get a lot cheaper in the next couple of months since the 8T was just announced. So it's at least still on the table for me to look for, ;) instead of completely ignored like the pixel and Samsungs

  13. I only overclock because it is fun to see what older parts can perform like when pushed to their max (eg, a Q9400 I got recently, or my i5 760). On my main system, I do it because I am too poor to have any better components
