    I settled on -0.05 offset and under gaming, temps are 72C. It's just a few degrees warmer than my 5900x was, but seeing consistent 140-150fps in darktide is worth it. V seems to have settled down too, under load it's just asking for 1.07-1.08v. I...

    It's dark, but it has improved a good chunk since the early open beta. Visibility is improved to a point where I don't feel the darkness is a problem to me anymore. There ARE dark missions where the power is out, and you have visibility of like...

    I own a 6700XT from last gen and it's plugged into my HTPC. The driver issue is real. When nvidia does a driver update via windows, my only clue is when I encounter maybe a one off bug in a particular game. I let my htpc do auto updates as it's...

    I screwed a screw THROUGH a trace on an old heatsink design back in 2002 on a service call. It cost me out of pocket to replace the motherboard. I felt way worse from screwing up than taking the $ hit on the job.

    Slade replied to the thread RTX 2080 Super vs. 3060Ti (OEM).
    I'd go with 3060ti over 2080 super. If your target is 4k 120fps, it's not going to cut it for a lot of modern games, 4k 60fps is so so. My concern about the "60fps" avg of a 3060ti, is the 1% dips into the 30fps range. Take a game like elden ring...

    It depends on the games the op really plays, if they are GPU bound or CPU bound. He'll need to look up the ones he cares about and determine if his setup does his target FPS at 4k at his desired settings. While he may be "fine" pairing a 4080...

    I'm running a corsair AIO 280. Idle temps around 47-48C, in gaming I've seen it touch 80C, but on average it's hovering around 72-74C. I was able to get the temp down while maintaining 4350-4450mhz avg by just running a voltage offset -0.06V...

    Update on 5800x3d. CPU runs hot, on the plus side, darktide got a significant fps boost.

    There are games showing a 3090 gaining performance with an upgrade from 5900x to 7900x, let alone a 13900K. Considering the 8600k, it will be bottlenecking even a 3080ti, especially when you try running 4k.

    4080 is a waste with that CPU, new monitor at 4k will be starved to hit 60fps with that PC. Upgrade to better CPU/mobo, pick up a cheap used 3080ti/3090 (or wait on 7900xt card)

    I've been playing the recent beta and the last beta. First on a 3090, then 4090. The 3090 performance was 80-120 with no ray tracing. With gsync on, it was a very good experience. The 4090 with DLSS3 lets me play full ray tracing and with 1% lows...

    As much as we say qc is bad, the failure rate is incredibly low and the evidence is geared more towards user error. All processes have a failure rate, just sucks for the people on that side of the coin.

    The highest settings IS the highest settings after all. Looking at cyberpunk, full RT on with those same specs will barely similar as well. Do you NEED highest settings to enjoy? A 3090 with low RT settings and DLSS will net around 80fps, which...

    Wire gauge hasn't been the problem. Gamers nexus actually cut 4 wires off and ran 600W through just 2 wires on the power side. It did not melt or light on fire. The problem is potentially just some poor quality pins on the male side combined with...

    I think you're a little behind on the news. There are 2 types of soldering jobs that exist, neither of which was shown to be the problem. See pics of all failures, melting happened within the plug pin ares, not the soldering joints. Many of us...

    Slade reacted to DPI's post in the thread Nvidia 4090 meltdown maybe an answer with Like Like.

    See specs in sig. Game is running 120's in heavy combat, avg 140s peaks around 170s. 1440p RT maxed, DLSS quality, DLSS frame generation.

    In most gaming situations I see 4500, if you look at individual cores, you will see spikes of cores running as high as 4800, even 3dmark hits 4600 avg for me. I've decided to stick to my 5900x. In darktide, the cpu usage hovers around 40% and...

    A lot of sketch "Ads" on google search for MSI Afterburner. They are copying the landing page for MSI and the download is for some malicious file that varies in size around 300mb. My scans showed some trojans in the files. Just a FYI.

    Majority of starter moves are like original spidey powered up minus some perk bonuses like surrounding enemy stun, miles gets new moves into the mix based on his powers.
