    Shadowplay doesn't use your GPU. It's this thing:



    Have been raging a few hours because "not even a single encoder program used the gpu" till I actually realized there's that extra chip to encode video's >.<

    Lol how? I've never seen higher cpu loads or gpu loads with shadowplay. So 2x 780's +3930k: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9vMjg4JfPiY

    So my AudioEngines just died. Left Tweeter unit is cracking. Somehow, no matter how careful i am with stuff, hardware just seems to die very quickly around me.

    Made sure it's not a cable that is fastened incorrectly?

    Yeah. I've established that the tweeter makes this noise at 1100-1800hz f.e, haven't tried finding other area's. The thing starts resonating and creating a ruckus. If i switch balance to the other unit, the noise is gone and i only get a tone. Also tried different audio devices. 'tis very unfortunate.

    However, this gives me the oppertunity to swap them for black ones. So it's not all bad.

    Oh my god, i'm in love with noctua already. For the first time no rotary or bearing noises.

    Once the Dark Rock 2 finaly arrives, i'll make some better pictures.

    What headset are they using in the blizzcon tournaments? Is it just noise cancelling headphones to block all external sound? Looks like helicopter headsets.

    I think they are using simple ear/noise protectors. For sound they all use in-ears.

    I finally got my 2 monitors in a okayish color balance, one seems much more warmer and the other seems much more a cooler color.

    In other news...Ie has a mascot....The funny thing is "
    Inori says she used to be clumsy and slow but has since matured and is confident in her abilities. " Made me laugh my ass off.

    She's 18 apparently...which surprisingly fits in with anime :P



    Microsoft board of directors may all be permanently high, but at least they picked anime which is something I enjoy...so I'll let this slide -_-

    Tried watching a few, came to the conclusion that Anime ain't my thing. Usually too angsty.

    Not sure if this is the right place to ask but, does anyone know some extension or some way to make MMO-champ look darker for both Chrome and Firefox (Nightly)?

    I tried watching Anime, but I can only get ahold of Japanese-dub; Japanese voice actors suck and sound identical
    Also, it's in colour. I'd rather read manga.

    Speaking of internet browsers... I may be switching to Chrome...(from Firefox).

    You're a tad late to the party, people are already leaving because Google decided to drink too much and is in the process of puking all over the carpet.

    The lack of add-on support is the only reason I'm not switching permanently to IE

  17. #5257
    Yeah, if IE had a proper ad-blocker, I'd use it.

    And what does that mean, exactly? What's wrong with Chrome?

    'scuse me

    for those with multiple monitors: what's a good program to manage them? I've been using Displayfusion for a while but the whole "give us more dosh, goy" is really fucking annoying. I have to replace it soon
