    Booterbotter reacted to merrybird12345 in Best budget durable (can last for years r/w) SSD?   
    Unless you're constantly writing huge files, any from a reputable brand will most likely outlast you.  People need to stop worrying about write endurance for OS and gaming drives.  Like one of the posters above I have a Samsung 840 128gb from 2012 that still has decades of life left.

    Endurance rally doesn't matter for a boot and game drive for 5 years, thats nothing for a drive.
     
    But also drives can fail at any time with no warning, so make sure you have backups if you care about the data on them.

    Booterbotter reacted to badreg in Can't dual channel memory, is it compatibility issue or what? 3600Mhz   
    To clear up your confusion regarding the QVL:
    Single and Dual refer to the ranks on the DIMMs, not the number of channels.
     
    The size in GB refers to the size of each DIMM, and the check boxes refer to the number of DIMMs that were successfully validated. For example, 8GB and three checkboxes means that 1x8, 2x8, and 4x8 were all validated.

    Booterbotter reacted to Jurrunio in Motherboard VRM Tier List v2 (currently AMD only)

    The following list is based on facts, ranked on power delivery and known problems. The list will include boards that support CPU overclocking available at retail from different brands.
     
    There are still differences in performance among boards of the same tier. As a result, those that barely made it into that tier will be in orange while those that are better than others in the same tier are in blue. Unless specified, boards sharing the same name and chipset in different form factors are ranked the same.
     
    For advanced users: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Smj5dh97n32wJqm5dkdDcQt8ID7vH52-lKzaaXUUQx8/edit?usp=sharing
     
    AMD
     
    All current draw figures are based on Prime95 small FFT with AVX unless otherwise specified, in other words the worst case scenario.
     
    Only often recommended sku of CPUs in the same generation and core/thread count configuration is named, others share the same rating.
     
    Zen scales down frequency and voltage according to EDC (current limit) and TDC (thermal limit) settings of the motherboard so in theory you won’t cook the VRM of any board at stock, you just lose frequency.
     
    For tier A and above, due to lack of feasible CPUs that allow testing of the boards at higher current ratings, there are some level on guessing in terms of how much more power the VRM can take.
     
    AM4 (Athlon, Ryzen 3, Ryzen 5, Ryzen 7, Ryzen 9)
     
    B550 Speculation: If you cant find the board above, then it should be here. If it's already up there, then ignore what it's placed here
     
    TR4 (Ryzen Threadripper 1xxx and 2xxx) X399
     
    sTRX4 (Ryzen Threadripper 3xxx) TRX40 (largely guessing since there's little data)

    Legacy list thread: Those looking to dive into Intel's outdated process node and recycled (for many times) architecture please refer to the old list

    Just luck of the draw. That said nothing will hurt performance more than the fact that they are running in single channel

    How can we tune your memory stick then? 
     
    Might as well squeeze what you can from it. 
     
    Frequency brings bandwidth and lower latency.

    It's not a stress test. It just shows specs.
     
    Here is example.
    select EPROM tab, the select read SPD.

    Booterbotter reacted to Strandox in Is my CPU dying/dead?   
    Haha yes i had been team red on the gpu side of things since 2013. I loved my little r9 270x my god was it a space heater. I was hypnotised into joining the green corner with super cheap 980ti deals on eBay for just £150 ? best way to get into 1080p gaming imho. I can't wait for AMD to make me feel like an idiot for dropping £550 on a gpu. Oh well, it looks nice and overclocks like a beauty.
     
    I will have a look into your suggestions but i think the problem has been solved. And if not i will pray to the gods for a 3900x to fall through the letterbox tomorrow
     
    Cheers mate!

    They're good then.
    There's also Corsair CX650 for the same price, it's non-modular tho.
    It's not only about wattage, for that GPU i'd recommend to go a bit higher for 550W Seasonic Focus GM, 550W are enough, it's more about better unit overall. Just make sure that it's indeed GM, not FX\FM, it should be on the box, they may try to sell older revision since they're pretty similar looking.

    Booterbotter got a reaction from JabroniBaloney in Blizzard/Activition Refunds for a broken CODMW game?   
    I guess you are wrong then?
     
    I think BBB pushed the refund despite Blizzard keeps on telling me and BBB that it's beyond 72 hours from purchase.
    I just played around 3-4hours as they saw the date/time stamp on my account. 
    Blizzard even kept on brushing me off 3x before I finally escalated and filed a complaint to BBB.
     
    Thanks @Mark Kaine because you helped me out here
    It was worth a shot.

    Anyone else attempted to demand a refund to Blizzard/Activition on their broken CODMW game?
    A game that within the game, they would force update it, break it then you have to re-download the whole game. 
    Scan and repair may or may not work, not to mention you have to uninstall and re-download the whole 130GB+ game files to have it working again. 
    The great thing about it is, all my friends are also having the issue and it's all over the internet forums and google search lmao. 

    Then they would tell you even if you just purchased/played the game a few hours (I just got it last 11/25).
    "Basically the refunds are not normally something we offer as all sales are intended to be final. While we do try and help out with exception were possible, these are extremely limited and dependent on the time that has passed since the purchase and the amount of activity on the game."

    Nice scam blizzard lmao. I felt I throw a $63.99 
     
    If we report this to the better business bureau, will they file a case or so to push it?

    Thanks, I am submitting one now. Hopefully they can shed a light here because the game is good? YES.
    The game is super buggy? YES, just google it and see the links I gave out there. 
    It may not be happening for everyone but think about it this way.

    Basic steps you can do is scan and repair the game, if that does not work. 
    You'll have to uninstall/download/reinstall the 130+GB game, not everyone has the leisure not to mention unlimited data or fast internet to be able to do that always every time.
