  1. I suppose I'll need to look into it some more find out for sure then. Worse case is I go with a 980x which clocks slightly lower and costs a bit more but overall won't effect much.
  2. Nice! For some reason they are a lot cheaper then the 990x and if I remember correctly they also clock slightly higher.
  3. So I'm looking at some X58 motherboards, and managed to find a decent deal on the Foxconn X58 Flaming Blade GTI. Now I know that X58 is a dead platform and that the CPUs are very power hungry and don't get a lot of work done in 2021 and that I should just go with a Ryzen system or whatever but I think it would be a fun project. So now the question: as far as I know, it was up to the board vendor to determine rather they wanted to support LGA 1366 Xeon processors like the X5690, but because Foxconn no longer makes motherboards I can't just go to the QVL and see if it's compatible. Does anyone k
  4. The yellow is only on a few contacts underneath the GPU cores
  5. So I bricked my Pro Duo. The HBM clock on these cards is locked so the only way to change the clock is through the BIOS, I was stable at 575MHz with 1.275V on the memory and raised the clock speed to 585 a few days ago and the card wouldn't boot anymore. That's fine I have a dual BIOS right? Well, apparently that isnt working for some reason. I tried the refreshing the stock BIOS on with no luck, tried shorting BIOS rom pins, and tried the SPI Flash tool were you directly connect to the ROM all with no luck. Now my only option seems to be a ROM replacement but I noticed these contacts covered
  6. Oh, yeah I for some reason figured I would need the graphics card installed for that but that wouldn't be the case unless the driver somehow physically changed the firmware, thanks for that time saving tip Lol
  7. Looks like I need to install Ubuntu and install drivers then, won't boot in Crossfire with my R9 Fury X into Windows and the driver support for Linux Mint is non existent.
  8. This is the bluescreen the 390xs cause
  9. Something like Something like APPLICATION_NOT_HANDLED but I'll check for what it says exactly in a minute
  10. So I picked up a pair of completely untested R9 390xs for really cheap and they came in so of course the first thing I did was try them as they where. It showed a display, it booted normally into Windows, then bam! Bluescreen as soon as I go to put in my password, I've fixed a number of broken graphics cards but I've never seen this before and the other 390x did the same. I swapped over to the graphics card I was using before and it booted and did things no problem. Put one of the 390xs in, booted to Linux, and it runs completely fine in Linux, threw the other one in to Crossfire test them a
  11. Well I built my computer only last year but when I did I found a $80 R9 Fury X to put in it and I don't plan to upgrade for a while, as long as I get 720p 60fps I'm happy
  12. I would imagine a quad core i5 to bottleneck the RTX 3070 at least slightly, if you keep the same platform but upgrade to a 4th gen i7 the extra threads should help with that and you can find thoes chips used for under $100.
  13. I do have the card udervolted and overclocked actually, 1,100MHz core with 545MHz HBM at 1.194V V-core over the stock 1.240V I might be able to drop the clocks down to 1,000MHz and do closer to 1.1V though
  14. The pump is on the bottom with the RAD/RES mounted on the rear or the case like an exaulst fan. Apologies for the poor photo quality, I used flash instead of taking the side panel off.
  15. So I might be one of the only ones left at this point but I'm running a R9 Fury X with the reference watercooler and have used MSI Afterburner to set a custom fan/pump curve to make the pump stop at idle. I know that it is inevitable that eventually the AIO will run low on fluid and create all kinds of thermal and acoustic issues and I'm starting to see (and hear) signs on that already so my solution was to set that custom fan/pump curve to make the pump do the least amount of work it has to, that means even under full load the pump normally doesn't exceed 1,000RPM. Now I could just turn the s
