    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    Me too but I can definitely see the issue on some occasions (or if I look for it on purpose). But it has just never been an actual problem for me. Daily driver for a bit more than 2 years now.

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    Yeah I'm the same I guess. I'm on 350w right now but I think I'll wait for the following gen so that I may still get a significant performance increase while lowering the wattage to maybe 250w or so. I'm sure a 350w (maybe even 300w) RT4xx will be an upgrade already but I'm afraid it'll only be...

    It's really damning that none of the internet's talking heads are bringing up how AWFUL Nvidia's drivers have become

    I am sorry that you are having issues with specific features you care about (I don't use those two). For me nvidia drivers have the best they've ever been, including with some niche uses/games I had trouble with in the past. So from my point of view... they have only gotten better than ever.

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    There is no point running it manually basically. If you notice an uniformity issue that you are certain wasn't there before, then you can try to force it, and it may help. But most people shouldn't worry about it. Saying you are dimming the panel every time it runs is not wrong but those...

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    Yes I agree. I don't want a 500-600w card but I am not complaining, next gen will still improve performance for whatever wattage I am fine with, it's all that matters at the end of the day. But also I appreciate the fact that this power consumption gives us something in return now, unlike...

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    Oh yes I forgot one reason, the heat in summer! This setup has been a life changer for me.

    RTX 4xxx / RX 7xxx speculation

    I keep my pc in a separate room (long-ish cables and fancy routing) from the one where my desk actually is, for the reasons listed. I don't want to see it, nor hear it. But I want it to perform, definitely.

    Over-ear headphones that are comfortable for long periods?

    Beyers DT-880 remain my all time favourite comfort wise, with big glasses. Have had extremely long sessions (from waking up to going to bed literally) with them and totally forgot they were even on my head. So light and so soft! I broke them (by dropping them too many times, after 10 years of...

    ASUS RTX 3080 TUF 10GB LHR - unpleasant RMA experience.

    I have an ASUS 3090 TUF and it behaves like your card so no. The funny thing though is I wouldn't have known about it if a friend of mine hadn't insisted on making me try his miner app. I have no found any other way to get the memory hot enough to get the fan speed to ramp up noticeably. Which...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    "Quiet", "inaudible"... those are subjective terms. Some of us will hear the fan and be bothered by it. My PC case is actually in a separate room (long-ish cable run) vs the one where I am sitting behind the monitor, so there is zero source of noise coming from inside that room (other than the...

    42" OLED MASTER THREAD

    Yea that and lack of VRR make me never use BFI in practice on my CX. But like the guy above said it's optional and more options is always good as long as they are of use to some.

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    You can do whatever you want. But OLED tech really shines in dark rooms (HDR content is also mastered in dark rooms with a target of around 100 nits average, similar to SDR movies). Otherwise the true blacks and infinite contrast won't do anything vs a good LCD because of how our eyes work. Of...

    Battlefield 2042

    I thought BF1 and BF V were fantastic, especially the latter with infantry combat that feels amazing (very smooth and natural movement system combined with solid gunplay). My problem is I'm not really a fan of those eras (though I like WW2 planes but I do that in VR with IL-2 Sturmovik already)...

    Battlefield 2042

    I don't know why I let people convince me that the beta was an early build or w/e. None of it made any sense. But I was in the middle of a slow and painful breakup and I really wanted a new BF game to go crazy in. I didn't lose faith after the beta, but I sure did with the full game. Doesn't...

    LG 48CX

    Ok, you mean the secret menu for which you need a different remote or an Android phone with an app. Well I don't have any of that so I'm out of luck right now. Not a big deal anyway but thanks for the info.
