  1. Hi everyone, So this is a weird one. I have an MSI GP75 Leopard 9SD-428CA laptop. While it was still under warranty, a cluster of dead pixels formed just off center of the middle of the screen. It was under warranty, so I sent the laptop for repair and MSI replaced the screen. After getting it back there was no issue for about 6 months and then the cluster of dead pixels reformed in the exact same spot. By then my warranty had ended as well as the 3 month warranty for the repair itself. I just ordered a replacement screen which I int
  2. My favorite case I made was out of lego, complete with power switch made from lego and lego power and hdd LEDs. In this case, I really like that removable front filter and that big industrial power switch that looks like a breaker.
  3. LGR recently did this video on an industrial IBM PC. Wouldn't this case be awesome for a sleeper PC build?

    FPS for 144 hz

    Well, I'm still not exactly sure what's happening when vsync is enabled. I just tried playing some Witcher 3 however and turning vsync off and there was definitely hitching due to inconsistent frame rate. I set the limit to 72 and that definitely did the trick. It's just annoying a lot of games still use the 30 / 60 / vsync on or off presets. I supposed half rate sync might give me 72 but that definitely is above the capabilities of the 1660 Ti on some games, at least with decent visuals.

    FPS for 144 hz

    Laptop is GP75 Leopard 9SD. Games I've played lately are Cities: Skylines, MGSV, Flight Simulator 2020, Elite Dangerous. All of these have done just fine at 60 fps, again I think vsync is enabled.

    FPS for 144 hz

    Hi, If this topic has come up before recently I apologize and feel free to redirect me. I used to have a desktop computer with a 60 hz monitor and so I always used vsync at either 30 fps or 60 fps depending on the game. I hate screen tearing and I always prefer consistent performance rather than as many frames as possible. Now I have a laptop with a 144 hz panel but I haven't experimented too much with playing games at different fps. I've pretty much just been targeting 60 fps like I'm used to doing and so far it seems to be fairly smooth for the most part.
  7. This varies so much, there's not really a straight answer. NVidia GTX cards seem to aim to improve performance by one card each generation. So 960 = 770 = 680, etc. Though this is not consistent and each generation normally has a mid-range sweet spot in performance making it normally the most popular card of it's generation. Popular cards: 660 Ti, 760, 970.
  8. Radiator fans are still going to act as either intake or exhaust fans. The only difference is radiator fans will either have to spin faster or cover more area to make up for the extra air resistence caused by the radiator. Make sure you use SP (Static Pressure) fans for radiators. I recommend buying high quality quiet fans if it has to push air through both an air filter and a radiator as they will likely need to spin a bit faster to keep the air moving.
  9. There's no need to over complicate case pressure. The most important thing is airflow. Pick a direction you want the air to travel through your case and make sure it passes by all of your components. I often think it's best to have either 2x 140mm or 3x 120mm as intakes depending on the case type. This way you're pushing air in evenly across the entire front intake filter (for most cases). Exhaust is typically at the rear toward the top or the top toward the rear and can be achieved using 1-2 120mm fans. This works because hot air rises and you want the air to exhaust as far as possible from t
  10. Did you physically check to see if the fans are spinning while the computer is turned on?
  11. I kind of think you're better off going with 6600k exclusively for gaming. I doubt you will bottleneck with that CPU in games for quite a while. Yes games may utilize more cores, but as the reliance on more cores increases so will the standard of single core performance. In other words, the 5820K won't future proof you any more.
  12. Looks good to me, although I don't see an SSD. You will definitely want one for video editing and general performance. I don't recommend 390 over 970 anymore. There's benefits to both, pick the one you want. Although, looks like we're getting new NVidia cards in June, something to think about it.
  13. I think by "only need CPU" you mean you only need the computer itself, not monitor, etc. You do need to give a location/currency though
  14. http://www.gamnesia.com/news/ubisoft-will-punish-people-who-exploited-a-glitch-during-the-divisions-firs Was this posted already? Is it a valid article? If it's not legit feel free to delete. I just feel like this kind of bs needs to be spread around if it's true. You cannot fault players for a bug, game exploits are completely and entirely the fault of the dev, end of story.
  15. The stock fans will work, but I find the S340 has excellent airflow if you put 2 140mm fans in the front and use the stock fans as exhaust.
