  1. I just use IntelBurn Test, seems to work just fine.
  2. All we really know is that Zen2 is a die shrink/refinement of current Zen. But it seems probable that AMD will continue soldering the IHS.
  3. Doubt it, Intel hasn't really done that with any new launch from what I can remember. Admittedly my memory is pretty bad. Also... Intel really likes money. (Also bribing other companies into not buying competitors products is a thing Intel likes).
  4. Interestingly they will apparently ship to Norway, that is something I've never seen when looking at PC parts at US based e-tailers.
  5. I did do a complete DDU clean and fresh install of the GPU drivers when I installed the 17.7.1 drivers, finally caved and installed ReLive, it's been nagging at me for long enough. Anyway, as I mentioned to the other guys, I'll just not bother, it's an old card, it'll only run DX12 features emulated and it's not that long until this GPU is in the recycle bin.
  6. I did, there's pictures of GPUZ... AMDs drivers haven't been worse than Nvidias recently from what I've been able to tell, and AMDs drivers are far better at DX12 than Nvidias have been. Particular in the way the use the CPU. (Which opens a whole other can of worms regarding intel's lead in gaming because of stronger IPC, but that's another discussion for another time.) Yeah, I'd rather not have to mess around with re-installing drivers. I guess I'll just not bother since it'll only run in emulated mode anyway. Thanks for your time though. I think I've tried this be
  7. That seems counter-intuitive. Shouldn't the more recent drivers have all the same support just with even more support on top of that? I have been looking at my driver and in the crimson software, couldn't find anything.
  8. So, for a laugh I decided to test if my old crotchety XFX 7970 GHz edition could reap any benefits from DirectX12. Now, from what I've been able to gather all GCN AMD GPUs should support DX12, even if AMD lists the 7000 series as "laptop" cards these days. According to dxdiag DirectX12 is installed however it only shows my card functioning up to DX11.1, as such no games are drawing any frames on screen if DX12 is set as the renderer in game!(AKA just a black screen) I have no idea why this doesn't work, it should. It's worth mentioning that I am really bad at googling.
  9. As if, the whole muting thing was 99% going to happen regardless of any big firm taking over.
  10. Man, I can't wait to stick this in the face of everyone who was arguing that Google had already taken over. TAKE THAT SUCKERS I TOLD YA SO! *Does the "I told you so dance"*
  11. I just wanted someone to come hang out with me really, I don't really have much else to do with my time right now.
  12. http://www.twitch.tv/coltainecrows Come join me if you want to, I'll be streaming some HearthStone for now, and then later on I'll probably do some other stuff, not really sure what yet. I'll probably be streaming pretty much every week day from today onwards, usually around 1800 Central EU time (1700 British Isles/1200 East Coast US)
  13. Damnit, I feel like the search function is broken, I can never find stuff when I make a double post. Oh well.
  14. http://globalvoicesonline.org/2014/07/24/russia-tor-privacy-nsa/ Welp, go Russia I suppose?
  15. I can't remember really, but probably on Komplett.no that often has LTT videos in the product overview, or at least they used to.
  16. Yeah, I totally forgot to turn it off as I think it defaults to ECC On, I'm at least sure I didn't turn it on myself. Hm, I have a CM QuickFire TK Green and a Logitech G502. But at least for now it seems to be pretty stable, so hopefully it was just the ECC thing I'd forgotten to switch off. I'll tinker with the RAM settings a bit more and see where I end up and how it goes etc, I'm not that comfortable with UEFIs yet, and I can't say that I think they're an actual upgrade to the traditional BIOS. Thanks for the replies.
  17. Ah, that's what I get for not paying attention to PC stuff for a few years I set the DRAM to 1600, and went in under the North Bridge settings to disable ECC, things seem to have stabilized, so for now I'm crossing my fingers. Thanks for the answer though, I'll look more into it tomorrow after work.
  18. So, after a long time and a good number of issues I finally have my, now dated but, barely used gaming PC together and functional, I think I just solved the last problem now, but I'd just like to have a bit of a troubleshooting session to be safe. Specs: Mobo: ASUS Crosshair V Formula("BIOS" 1703) CPU: AMD FX8150(no OC) GPU: XFX 7970 3GB "Black Edition"(1GhZ stock OC) RAM: 32GB Corsair Dominator DDR3-1600 (Non-ECC, not OC) HDD-OS: WD Velociraptor 600GB HDD-storage1: WDC Black 1TB HDD-storage2: WDC Black 2TB Now it wasn't until recently I got this thing up and running properly
  19. There is one. It's at the top. The last sentence before the first picture.
  20. So, I had a couple of drives that died on me, well one was technically salvageable but there wasn't really anything worth going through the effort for. So I decided I'd take them apart, because I need more fridge magnets, and the platters are really shiny and... that's probably useful.. For something. Also it's a roundabout way to destroy everything on the HDD if you're really concerned about that sort of thing. So, here we go. First off you'll need a couple of things. A broken HDD, or a not broken one you want to destroy A TX-8 screwdriver or bit or one of those angled keys, (A TX5 sc
  21. Let's just say the word of FaceBook is worth about as much as the random unnamed source in my eyes. I don't believe in either of them for now. Also I find this video relevant.
  22. I say; yes. But then I don't think online MP is all it's cracked up to be. I still like PSN because "free" games.
  23. The Day One Garry's Incident was sorted, this is a new thing. But the company who made Guise of the Wolf are handling it in, probably, the worst way possible.
  24. Well, now we have this: https://twitter.com/FUNCreators/status/434477824758382592 They are accusing TB of photoshopping the screencap of the e-mail... I'm half tempted to just download the Guise of the Wolf research stream from Twitch and upload it to a "fake" YT account, or on blip or something.
  25. (Copied from Twitter, I somehow screwed up the Quotes, guess I've forgotten how to do them manually. Original Tweet here. ) Soo yeah, we have another Garry's Incident on our hands it seems. For those wondering, Christian(AKA Zooc from ZoocDoesStuff on YT) is TotalBiscuits PR guy. In any case. EDIT: Screwed up a bit in posting this.
