  1. Need a signal boost: 3rd party client support in Skype

    Hey all!

    So, Microsoft is closing Skype to 3rd party instant message clients. For most people this doesn't matter, but this is actually a pretty bad thing.

    I've posted a thread here:...
  2. Pair of GTX 780 6GB editions or wait for the GTX 880s?

    Heya!

    So, because of some really weird budgeting constraints I can drop $1100-$1200 on video cards. I've just got a pair of shiny new Dell U2413 monitors - they run at 1920x1200 and ran me just...

    Re: Recent Purchases

    I've just got a pair of shiny new Dell U2413 monitors and I'm about to order a pair of GTX 780s w/ 6 gigs of RAM each.

    Is it weird that I'm signing on just to brag about this?
  4. Re: Could I get some help for this team made in memory of someone?

    The anniversary of the friend's passing has come around. There's so much that I'm doing lately that I'd love to be able to tell them about. Some of that includes the opportunity to get involved in...
  5. Help me find the One Backpack To Rule Them All

    I'm in the market for a new backpack. I have a chronic back injury and hauling a ton of notebooks, books, and computer equipment around on my back is really bad for it. The back injury costs me a...
  6. Re: Urgent - Something is eating my bootloader and it's not the boot disk!

    Hello!

    Surprisingly a solution out of the mid-90s appears to have fixed my issue. I ran a chkdsk on everything. It found plenty. It did something with something that I probably don't want to know...
  7. Re: Urgent - Something is eating my bootloader and it's not the boot disk!

    Removing the drives from RAID-1 (Mirroring) makes me 2^64 kinds of nervous, I have my e-mail and stuff junctured onto them and after an incident a few weeks ago, I don't have a full backup of my...
  8. [Solved] Something is eating my bootloader and it's not the boot disk!

    Hey guys and gals!

    I'm in the middle of a semester. I've had a bad start. I had an exam today. I have a presentation tomorrow. The commonality between the two is not the subjects but the utter...
  9. Re: What's everyone playing/gamer looking for a group!

    I ended up tapped out, unfortunately. I'll look at getting a copy around Spring Break!

  11. What's everyone playing/gamer looking for a group!

    Hey all!

    So I'm fresh out of my first full time semester at a large university. It completely ate me up - I disappeared from the groups I gamed with for too long and they've all moved on and...
  12. Re: Dead video card pt 2 - replacing thermal pads

    If it's working for a bit and dies again with the same error, I'll need to reflow it again. This card's gotta last me until Summer.

    A continuation from here: http://forums.pcper.com/showthread.php?481207-solved-Video-card-with-birdshot-patterned-square-artifacts-at-2D-desktop

  14. Re: [solved]Video card with birdshot patterned square artifacts at 2D desktop

    My first thought while I was watching these errors jump around was "Wait. This card's working. There's something going on between the GPU and the monitor."

    It's wild to think of anything...
  15. Re: [solved]Video card with birdshot patterned square artifacts at 2D desktop

    Yeah. That's likely too even though I ran the card undervolted for quite awhile and kept it on a highly aggressive fan profile that kept it under 75C. GTX 480s were designed to run up to 90C if I...
  16. Re: Video card with birdshot patterned square artifacts at 2D desktop

    Compounding matters: It's rendering highly complicated scenes in blender just fine. I have it rendering a piece at a 5000x5000 resolution with 750 samples per pixel. It's been going for well over a...

    Solution:
    Using Blender 3D I was able to torture test the card in a way that didn't immediately crash the system. I've gotten several errors in functions cuMemAlloc and cuMemFree, which indicates...

    Re: Troubleshooting a GTX 480

    Actually, I intended to run memtest because of the issue, but I ran out of time. That would be hilarious, sort of, if my RAM was dead and making a card ghost.

    What's wild is it didn't just...

    Okay...

    It's 3 AM on a Thursday. I just had my night go from alright-but-stressful-in-a-good-way to really bad. In the middle of a game, I disconnected. My screens still worked but I couldn't...

    Something ate my reply. I swore I typed one up explaining this and went into explicit detail!

    Kepler's virtualization should let you map one video card to multiple VMs for acceleration. This would...

    Re: Anyone tried using a GPU in a Xen VM?

    Nope, it lets the VM use the GPU natively. So you'd theoretically be able to game (or 3D render) in a VM.

  24. Re: New PSU - Should a wire ever cross itself on an inductor?

    Alright, it appears to be fine! I thought I'd remembered that inductor wires weren't ever supposed to cross. I think my memory is mistaken. Great. I'm getting old, but at least my computer's getting...
