    Need new headset - halp?

    https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Sennheiser/Game_One/ If you 're able to skip the next pair of shoes, these might fit into your budget . The mic really sounds fantastic with a decent soundcard.

    Do you EVEN 90?

    min potential damage of ~500 with ~35 sec reload ... that's fucking useless for an autoloader. regardless of the other stats.

  8. The problem with mining cards is the constant high load and temps on the power delivery. That eats into the expected life time of these components like nothing else.

    False reporting (unicums ...) can be detected without many problems.
  10. I get 90-100 FPS avg in WoTEncore without any stutter. Reported VRAM use isn't always indicative of what is really "needed".
  11. If you only play WoT on a regular basis the GTX970 won't be a disadvantage. That game doesn't use much VRAM ~2GB at 1920x1080. With WoTenCore I get 17500 points with my 970 @FullHD (max settings). Ingame it's ~100FPS. How HD maps will influence performance, I'm not really sure.
  12. Off topic: Take a look at the GTX970 market (used), they are usually much cheaper than 480/580, while offering similar performance when it comes to WoT. The possible difference in VRAM doesn't matter in this game at FullHD.

    Nurki take a look at these reviews: https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/?category=Headphones&manufacturer=&pp=25&order=date They include soundsamples for the microphon similar to what I did in my mini-review of that USB thingy I did on techpowerup and the GSP300 sounds really good.

    Good solution for "fixing" jack thingy on pc https://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/microphones-on-gaming-headsets-and-on-motherboards-suck-a-solution-for-8.236406/#post-3714716 to widen your options/selection so you can also buy headsets with regular plugs. That aside
  15. In hindsight I'm happy that I waited with Coffeellake (first wanted to see Z390) and instead switched from 3570K to 3770K. I 'll lean back and wait for new CPUs to be released. The question is when these fixes will be implemented in hardware. Zen+ (spring '18) won't have them I'm pretty sure.

  18. Yep - hit's 5GHz stable with 1.35V. ---------------------------------------------
  19. As I understand it, the issue is VM related (one VM having access to an other "independent" VM).

    [FS - EU/Ger] i5 3570K

    Hi, I'm selling my old i5 3570K which is delidded and lapped (1000 grain). 4.4 GHz @ 1.27V are doable even with a medicore CPU cooler, 4.5 GHz wasn't possible to get really stable with any reasonable voltage (<1.37V - Intel max VCore) which is why I didn't try to push harder. The IMC allows for 2000+ MHz RAM speeds with 4 sticks, though I couldn't find the limit with my RAM/mobo combination which is limited somewhere around 2050 MHz. Undervolting at stock speeds is also possible up to around -0.15V. As you can see from the linked topic above the CPU is running nice and cool even under max speed+load after delidding and lapping, which makes it a good fit for SFF builds, HTPCs or something similar. The LM used was Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut. All speeds and voltages mentioned here worked in connection with my system (Asrock Z77 Professional, 4x 4GB G.Skill 1866MHz DDR3 and Cogar GS 650W). What I can't guarantee is how the CPU behaves in a different system. Price: 80€ (Paypal) + shipping
  21. I just completed the operation yesterday and didn't have the time to test out the chip. Before I delidded it, I was running it @1.26V and 4.7GHz and it seemed stable, though hot as you can see from the first screenshot. That 's why I didn't run extensive stability tests, but the system made a stable impression. Yesterday after delidding and producing the "after" screenshot, I tested 5GHz for around 45min with Prime small FFTs and 1.35V. Just punshed in the numbers and it didn't crash, bluescreen or produced stalled workers in Prime95. But I can't say if it's stable or what voltage it really needs for certain speeds yet. Edit: 5GHz @1.35V resulted in 70°C.
