The GPU load is 0%. It's not being used at all, nothing to worry about.
[QUOTE=Levelog;47579128]The GPU load is 0%. It's not being used at all, nothing to worry about.[/QUOTE] Alright thanks. Like I said I have no idea how to read this stuff, thanks for pointing that out. I feel stupid.
Found out that my audio issue was to do with my front microphone panel being iffy (apparently) since i put my headphones in the back of the computer now and its being all fine. Strange. still don't see how it would be funny only on games though.
Well I decided to go with the R9 290. But now I have to decide between these two: [URL]http://www.mindfactory.de/product_info.php/4096MB-PowerColor-Radeon-R9-290-PCS--Aktiv-PCIe-3-0-x16--Retail-_950327.html[/URL] [URL]http://www.mindfactory.de/product_info.php/rating/1/4096MB-Asus-Radeon-R9-290-DirectCU-II-OC-Aktiv-PCIe-3-0-x16--Retail-_949752.html#reviews[/URL] Both cost the same. PCS+ seems to get praised because of its coolers. DirectCU II coolers on the other hand seem to get a lot of shit, as they apparently took them straight from Nvidia cards. But Powercolor is still a cheaper brand than ASUS. They also offer one year less warranty than the Asus, only 2 years. Bare in mind that I'm talking about the R9 290 (not the X), and that asus is DirectCU II OC (not the more common one without OC)
so atm i'm in and out of my office working on stuff there and at home, and so at the end of every day i zip up the project i'm working on and stick it on my external hard drive i'm trying to delete an old version of a folder to replace it with the new one from my work pc that i've brought home from yesterday, only it's saying i don't have permission to do so. nor do i have permission to rename it, and i need to use the same folder structure for things to work properly. is there some magical way i can force something to be deleted/renamed? why is this folder unable to be deleted in the first place? thanks in advance for any help
Has anyone here ever used EVGA's 'Step-Up' program? I'm thinking about using it as sort of deferred payment on a 970 upgrade. I have a 750 Ti now and I figured I'd buy a 960, grab a Witcher 3 code which for me is basically $50 off and then upgrade within 90 days. While in the interim I could save some money and have a card that's still better than what I had. Second question, EVGA has two qualifying 960s, one is there [URL="http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1133036-REG/evga_04g_p4_3966_kr_geforce_gtx960_4gb_sc.html"]4GB variant[/URL] that has a backplate, for someone who games at 1080p would I have any real reason to spend the extra dosh on that? Thanks for the help.
Is it better to SLI two of [URL="http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00D3LE2MK?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00"]these[/URL], or buy a brand new GTX 970? I'm sort of leaning towards SLI since I already have one card, and it'd be easier than buying a new one and selling my current one. What's confusing is the fact the GTX 770 is the same price as the GTX 970, and I don't know why.
Okay I'm getting sick of this. Each time a .webm loads and it doesn't buffer enough to let the video play (so it stops), the video just breaks. It either becomes black or I can't drag the progress bar back to the start. Anyone know how I fix this? Using Chrome.
both the 360 pads i have are broke how easy is it to use a ps4 pad? do you just set it up once with ds4tool or do you have to configure it per game? if its going to be an effort i will buy a xbone pad as im used to the layout on pc
I've was wondering about the clock speeds on an i5 professor for a laptop. It says at standard it's 1.80ghz but at maximum its 2.7ghz. How's this achieved and when? Is it when you've got your power settings on maximum or just done when it needs the extra juice?

It's basically an auto overclock function. Low power settings disable it.

Is it when you've got your power settings on maximum or just done when it needs the extra juice?[/QUOTE] There's actually several things going on. First, on any recent processor, the standard clockspeed is essentially "it will never run lower than this when at 100%". It can go substantially below that when idling - my i7 is currently running at merely 1.2GHz, even though it's standard clockrate is twice that, and that's with ten programs open. Second, on Intel chips, there's multi-core turbo - increasing the clock rate of all cores above the standard, when demanded by the current workload and allowed by both power limits and thermal limits. This usually does not last too long - it's designed to let the chip handle millisecond-long spikes in processing load quickly, so it can dive back down to that slow and efficient idle rate. So if it tries to do this for too long, it will likely start to overheat - so the chip puts a stop to it, and goes back down to the standard clockspeed, which can be sustained as long as the battery lasts. Third, there's single-core turbo - increasing the clock rate on a single core to an even higher clock. If I'm correct in guessing you're talking about the Core i5-5350U, this would put one core at 2.9GHz, and the other at 1.8GHz or lower. This is used when a single thread is chewing up everything - the other core can't help, other than taking care of other tasks so the other core can be completely dedicated. So the chip will put all its power and heat budget towards that one core, for as long as it will last. It can usually sustain higher than the standard clocks on one core, but probably not all the way up. This is to make older programs, or ones that cannot use multithreading anyways, run faster. All of the clock increases are done only as demanded - it won't run above standard clocks unless there's a significant load. And when idle or near-idle, it will drop clockrates down considerably, to save power and heat.
[QUOTE=gman003-main;47586839](i)[/QUOTE] To add to this, as an example, my i7 4500U usually hangs out around the 790 Mhz range when just web browsing. And will run up to that 2.9 ghz figure when needed. Its pretty much instant and you never notice it, except if the CPU is overheating in games where you might feel a bit of a framerate dip if it has to fall back in speeds significantly (which is normal CPU behavior anyway).
Thinking of buying an Nvidia 960 (or should I wait??). Should I upgrade my 430w PSU? Rest of my PC in case it matters. [t]http://puu.sh/hoJa2/019e7965fd.png[/t]
Tengo un problema grande, amigos. (Posting from my laptop) My desktop is running Win 10 technical preview (newest official build, 10049). I checked my updates today and noticed a display driver update. I installed it, and shortly after doing so my display flickers and crashes. No output to the monitor. Aight, this OS is in beta, no biggie. I run (win+r) shutdown -r and it restarts. Aight. I get to the log on screen, log on, and after a short amount of time crash again. Now I'm a little worried. I try again. Same results. Okay, I figure I should revert the driver update (which you can do now apparently). I devise this plan: 1. Boot in safe mode (I was able to get in during one of my attempts and there were no crashes here) 2. Open the settings app 3. Revert the update Now to get into safe mode in Win10 as far as I know, you have to enable it in msconfig. No problem. Yes problem. You see, ~70% of my boots don't make it to the log on screen. The other ~29% crash before I can open/while I am in the msconfig dialog. For the past hour or so I have been sitting at my desk doing this: 1. Power on 2. After a bit, encounter: 2a. log on screen or 2b. crash (blank screen, either black or blue of log on screen) or 2c. BSoD (only happened once) If I make it to the log on screen: - Try to open run dialog before I crash - Try to use run dialog to open msconfig before I crash - Try to navigate to Boot tab, press safe mode, and press ok before I crash - Reboot in safe mode Otherwise: - Hard shut down - Go to step 1 So here are my questions: - Am I wrong trying to revert the driver installation? - Am I doing this entire process wrong? - Is there an easier way to boot into safe mode? - I have my install DVD from several builds ago, would it help in any way? [editline]23rd April 2015[/editline] Forgot to mention that in one of my attempts I successfully disabled all startup programs. [editline]20th April 2015[/editline] Solved thanks to based system restore.
Guys,I need a little help...This is my currently potato [t]http://puu.sh/hoQ3g.png[/t] Recently I had the chance to buy a used EVGA GTX 680 2GB for a very good price and the only problem is my [B]PSU[/B].[URL="http://www.aerocool.com.tw/index.php/power-supply/value-series/48-power-supply/value-series/465-vp-550-information"]PSU Here with Details[/URL] I really want to know if I need to upgrade my PSU or this one will do it?
I would trust an Aerocool PSU with maybe an Atom. I'd definitely replace that.
My Razer Deathadders middle mouse button broken, looking for a new sweet mouse. Suggestions?
I went from a deathadder to logitech g series about five years ago and I love them. G500s is what I have now and I like it a lot.

I bought a new GPU, GTX 960 4GB, and am trying to install it. I plop out the old card (GTX 285), plop the new in, and noticed something I've never seen. The old card used two six pin connectors for power, while the new one uses one six and one eight. The new card comes with an eight pin to molex, which I'm unsure how to use, and I don't have any eight pins on me. Looking online I notice a lot of these eight pin to molex cords, but no eight pin to eight. Is there any place that actually sells and eight pin to eight pin cable, or am I missing something really obvious here with these molex ended cables?

Are you sure you don't mean 970, because there's no reason a 960 should need that much power.
Yeah, it has both on it. If I try with only the six pin, or using a six pin in the 8 pin plug, it displays a message on bootup saying "Please power down and use the proper PCI Express cables", or something to that extent. I'm completely lost how to get this thing up and running

I've never seen a molex to 8 pin personally, 2x 6 pin to 8 pin and a 2x molex to 6 pin may be your only option.
I have a Thermaltake EVO blue 750w. It has 8 pins on it (I've got two open/unused, with the two used going to 6 pin for the old card). Is it not possible to just buy an 8 to 8 cable? Would be pretty damn helpful right now

[QUOTE=Over-Run;47590086]My Razer Deathadders middle mouse button broken, looking for a new sweet mouse. Suggestions?[/QUOTE] I had a deathadder 2013 and switched over to a zowie am. It has a great sensor and feel, rubber coat finish, clicky buttons and mousewheel, cheaper then most gaming mice (50 bucks) and very minimal design/no software (can change dpi on the mouse). It is a pretty small mouse though, but there are bigger models. Zowie always seems overlooked when comparing gaming mice.

Exporting a lengthy video I've never considered it, but is there a desireable aspect ratio for 1080? I've generally just used the default squarepx 1.0 [img]http://7proxies.pw/i/2015/04/15-04-25_16-58-03.png[/img]
