  1. It didn't have a percentage rating like CrystalDisk but I ran a benchmark on Magician and these were the results:
  2. My boot drive SSD is showing a health percentage of 68% - is that a cause for concern? It's not showing any errors on the drive though - note that I've been using this SSD for about 5 and a half years now. P.S. Don't worry about the Caution warning on the other drive - I've backed up my stuff and have a new SSD on the way to replace that old HDD.
  3. So pretty much every time any game performs an autosave (or in games that allow it, manual saving) I'm getting mini-freezes for like a few seconds. There's also hitching whenever entering new areas or doing stuff like discovering rooms or tagging collectibles. This is happening across games - currently I'm playing Hitman 2 and Batman: Arkham Origins and both games suffer these issues. Never had this problem before and I played both titles previously on this machine without an issue. My rig meets all requirements (see specs below), I'm running the latest Nvidia drivers, Windows is u
  4. I just did a clean install of the latest Nvidia game ready driver 456.55 via the GeForce Experience app and since then whenever I shut down the system windows just remains stuck on the "Shutting down..." screen forever and won't turn off. I've used the power off button on the case twice now, no other way to shut it off. Anybody else having this problem or had something like this before?
  5. I found gameplay walkthroughs on PC - "Hold F Seismic Blast" I also seem to have found a phantom listing for TASM and its DLC on Steam, but when I click the links it just takes me to the Steam store homepage: https://store.steampowered.com/news/8934/
  6. Does anyone know where I can buy 2012's The Amazing Spider-Man game (or its 2014 sequel) on PC? It says on Wiki that the games were released for Windows but I can't seem them for sale anywhere - Steam, Origin, GOG, Epic nowhere. Did they turn it into one of those titles that can no longer be legally purchased anywhere? Like the first Hawx game or Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow?
  7. So I'm currently playing 2 games mainly - Hitman 2 and Mass Effect 2. The former on a Barracuda 2TB 7200rpm and the latter on a WD Enterprise edition 2TB 7200rpm. Everything was fine until I replaced my old mouse with a new Logitech G102 mouse (or at least the onset of problems coincided with that change) about halfway through these games. Here's what the problems look like: Hitman 2 > Almost every time the game autosaves (which is very frequently), or when I do a manual quick save and the moving barcode appears on bottom-right the game freezes for a few seconds, then resum
  8. So I got two Chrome-based browsers (chrome itself and Torch) which are otherwise fine but as soon as I open some media application (like VLC player, Whatsapp Web etc.), the browsers start stuttering/lagging every few seconds. But it doesn't happen for all the things, other media like Windows media player, the Steam client, etc. do not trigger any lag in the browser. Microsoft Edge doesn't suffer this problem, only chrome-based browsers do. The issue started only after the 1903 update. Anyone else having this? Any solutions? Oh and I already did that sfc /sca
  9. Well right now I'm looking for possible solutions to the stutter. If I end up with nothing, then rolling back would be the only option. The update took some 1.5 hours installing/configuring...I wouldn't want to sit through that again if I can avoid it
  10. Hi, I'm using Torch browser (Chrome-based) and ever since I updated Windows to 1903 two days ago (followed by some small .NET framework updates), the browser has started to stutter incessantly. It's obviously most apparent when I'm watching YouTube (or any online video) though its still there even when I'm browsing text-only pages - I can see the stutter when I'm scrolling. Tried uninstalling & reinstalling the browser with the latest version, didn't help. The Nvidia drivers for my GPU are also the latest (have been since before the stutter started, and before 1903 update. They're the MW B
  11. "he would try it every now and again and it actually worked once and booted up normally . . . however he has never been able to replicate that." Hmm...that makes me think there may just be some sort of power delivery issue or something. A totally bricked Mobo isn't gonna come back to life like that. I'd think it can be fixed by someone who knows what they're doing. I've actually had similar issues with my MB in the past (MSI Z97 Gaming 7) where lights & fans will spin up for a second and then shut off. But after repeated tries (sometimes 5-6 attempts) it would boot
  12. "I plan to buy a Deepcoop captain 240ex. I'm afraid that the pump might leak and fry either my GPU or CPU." Assuming you get a good unit, you needn't worry about that. However you may always strike some bad luck and get yourself a defective model - in which case anything could fail (including possibility of coolant leak, either due to loose or cracked fittings). "is the life span of an AIO more than 4 or 5 years?" Again, depends on whether you get yourself a good or bad unit. A good unit will easily last you 5 years, most AIOs pumps (which is the compo
  13. If this is a gaming-centered PC you're getting, I'd suggest turning the CPU down a notch (get i7-9700k) and turning the GPU up a notch (get 2080 Ti).
  14. Hi, I'm playing through the IW campaign and couldn't help but feel that there was probably something wrong with many of the textures in the game, namely, those belonging to environmental objects. They appear pretty low-res compared to the rest of the stuff. I've looked it up and it appears a lot of people reported having texture problems with IW following one of the updates - however I'm not sure if my issue is actually bad textures or if that's how the game is supposed to look. Note I have a pretty beefy GPU with a lot of VRAM (1080Ti, 11GB), and I tried to play around with the settings quite
  15. Hey, I got a Asus VZ27AQ 1440p monitor with a 75hz refresh rate. Typically, in all games I've played if I set the Vsync option to ON, it should cap the framerate to the monitor's refresh rate. That's how it's worked in all other games I've played on this system. However there's a problem with AW. I set the refresh rate to 75hz (74.95 something) and turned Vsync ON, but now the framerate is capped at 60 fps, as though if my refresh rate was in the 59.95 setting (which it's not). How should I get it to lock fps at 75 instead of 60? I have a 1080Ti and with Vsync OFF I can
