    what happens if power supply is insufficient?

    lol, thankfully it was a Seasonic and not Gigabyte. still no crashes whatsoever since swapping ram and upgrading psu :cool:

    LG 48CX

    thank you, i ordered a service remote from Bezos. it just seems like a poorly designed feature. i understand why max total brightness should be reduced (when displaying pure white for example) but what the hell was LG thinking when deciding to dim an ALREADY dim picture?!

    LG 48CX

    is there a way to disable this auto-dimming feature that dims the screen when it (apparently) detects lack of picture movement/change, esp with a fairly dark image? for example, i've been playing Flight Simulator, doing a lot of night flying (which is an amazing showcase for OLED, btw) but it...

    what happens if power supply is insufficient?

    actually that was a false alarm. my PC has been solid so far, every day since swapping the power supply. i have not had a single Nvidia driver-related event since. interestingly though, the GPU 8 pin voltage values reported in hwinfo were the same or maybe even a tinge less - but i know that's...

    what happens if power supply is insufficient?

    i just got done swapping in a 850w psu, we'll see how she do.

    what happens if power supply is insufficient?

    what is considered to be the acceptable range for the gpu 12v?

    what happens if power supply is insufficient?

    thanks. are the readings shown in HWinfo basically bunk/not helpful?

    what happens if power supply is insufficient?

    thanks guys. the reason i'm asking is because i recently started running into games CTDing at random over the past few weeks. at first i thought it was an Nvidia driver problem but that's definitely not the case as i tried rolling back to various older versions (including ones i definitely had...

    what happens if power supply is insufficient?

    thanks, but i'm not saying what if protections fail - i'm more asking, can issues occur *before* protection trips?

    what happens if power supply is insufficient?

    we all know that current (and upcoming) GPUs can be extremely hungry for power, in some cases exceeding 350 watts under load. same with many higher end CPUs. my question is, how does an insufficient power supply manifest in terms of symptoms during normal use? like say you tried to put a 3080...

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    for real, the immersion blows anything else out of the water.

    PC games/apps crashing -> Memtest errors all 4 sticks of RAM?

    well i ran memtest on a different pair of ram overnight and it had no errors, so it really does appear that i have at least two sticks of bad ram.

    PC games/apps crashing -> Memtest errors all 4 sticks of RAM?

    so my pc has been crashing (mostly while gaming, but tbf that's mostly all this pc does) frequently enough to start making me scratch my head. i didn't think it might be hardware related for a while as the crashes were 'benign' (no BSODS or hard locks, just the games closing without error...

    LG 48CX

    my c1 continues to blow me away, in both picture quality and features. it's so nice having stuff like the optical out and ARC/eARC support which is stuff that regular PC monitors usually don't have, and that's icing on the cake with the amazing picture quality. i still can't get over what it's...
