    Mikealongo reacted to Zilla in YOUR STRIX 3090 WILL FAIL RMA IT NOW (Missing thermal pads,Fan noise,Coil whine)   
    Nope it runs perfectly, EVGA knows how to use stickers.......... You can't say all those people posting videos on youtube are just being sensitive? You shouldn't have too mod a card back to a working state when you spend so much cash on it, also you cant fix it unless you buy a water block because there are cutouts on the air cooler that do not allow for a thermal pad to make contact. 
    @ShrimpBrine Thank you for your feedback and good information 🙂
    1. The card has no plate on the left side to remove heat causing a louder than normal coil whine sound.
    2. There is a consistent lack of contact on 2 memory chips shown on all Strix cards.
    3. The card is defective by design
    4. Never told anyone to buy any branded card, just not Asus

    Mikealongo reacted to Jurrunio in 3200 MHz RAM DOCP showing wrong CPU Z   
    your BCLK (CPU-Z calls it "bus speed") just isnt at 100MHz, more like 99.8 because the clock gen isnt that precise.

    You didn't mention that though, so I just went for the for the answer to the most asked question about DDR speeds  
    I don't have an explanation for that one, but I do know that - from own experience - CPU-Z always show 3200Mhz like this, so I would say it's normal.

    I'd imagine your BCLK is just a hair under 100.  Mine likes to sit at 99.8.

    Mikealongo got a reaction from zeros in 1 TB OS Boot drive + Storage Partitions

    But tomorrow i will start a fresh install of windows (im going to migrate to AMD) and i will creaete the new Drive frome the wizzard and then sellec the unallocated space to install windows ?

    Mikealongo reacted to A1_Steak_Sauce in Huntsman elite vs Blackwidow elite   
    I need advice on which one to get (the blackwidow will have green switches). Best buy has a sale at the moment where the huntsman elite is $169.99 and the blackwidow elite is $134.99.
    Since the huntsman is only $169.99 i'm kind of torn whether or not to get it over the blackwidow

    Mikealongo reacted to ARikozuM in Will my CPU bottleneck the 1080 or 1080 ti?   
    An i5 won't bottleneck any modern card to the point where performance will degrade and the i7 will do better (obviously it would). This bottleneck nonsense is just that. 
    If you have the i7 3770, just keep it as past trends indicate that you'll have it for another 3 to 4 years before needing or wanting an upgrade.
    Edit: You want the CPU to be the weaker (but still capable) of the two components since the GPU is what draws the frames and getting a lower tier GPU for fear of bottlenecks is foolish as the stronger card will still push out more frames.

    a few% in some games, perhaps. Generally not.
    It is an i7 after all, it should mostly be fine

    Mikealongo reacted to Godlygamer23 in IPS vs TN   
    Yes, nothing is perfect. As an Inspector for a military electronics company, I understand that nothing is perfect and you will encounter issues in some form or another. That being said, like you said, it does depend on the person and how picky they are about things. They may never notice the bleeding and admittedly, I only notice it in certain areas. Otherwise, it's a decent panel for the cost.

    Mikealongo reacted to maremp in IPS vs TN   
    Know that light bleeding is issue with all IPS panels, in my opinion it's largely overrated and there are rare cases when this is a reasonable arguments against IPS. It's accounted in the color calibration and that's not going to affect the colors, other than maybe some of the very dark color shades. If you want to save 190€, then sure, I bet you'll love pg278q just the same, when used for gaming, they still produce good image quality.

    If you have the 760T yes you can use the manual fan controller for more connections, but as for splitting them I probably wouldn't add more than one or two extra to that controller since we don't know how much current draw that can take.
