#2167901 Vega NOOB

Posted by cjloki on 17 March 2019 - 05:05 PM

Hey now jdm_freak

On being somewhat of an Nvidia "Go Green" fanboy myself, and having crossed over to the other side on several occasions in the past, all i can say is that the red team has done much and worked well for me, as well as can be expected from any high end gaming gpu solution on the market these days... Now as far as the new bleeding edge stuff just out right now, I have nothing to offer other than the same youtube informational vids that you have likely already studied, and the same ol' tech writing and reviews that are out there on the webs...  but for the record, I have felt more of a flat sort of 2 dimensional, "something missing" feeling from the old AMD hardware after switching over, that I think has to do with Nvidia Physx and how it processes versus AMD but I haven't been able to pin it down... Frankly I truly hope you enjoy and have fun with your new toy, and I'm certain you will get used to it in time...

well i just went ahead and opened it to see what i have to work with...  um this unit appears to be unopened, NIB, the quick start guide is in place in it's sleeve... and the electrostatic bag appears to be sealed and   intact... um the display port to dvi adapter is MIA though, not in the box, soo I will have to find one someplace in order to make 2 monitors with a twin hdmi cable work...this will be interesting for sure...

I will not be able to connect both monitors until i get an adapter...

...but there it is !!    ...thank you OCC !! :thx:

#2167602 Working on Metro Exodus Review

...i'm going in ...If you don't hear from me in two days send help 

#2167577 GPU Usage 60-80% Help!

Posted by cjloki on 12 February 2019 - 09:30 PM

I have heard repeatedly, from several sources "RTX 2080 is in it's infancy and as yet has not lived up to it's potential" ...thus, intuitively speaking, the current drivers are in their infancy too, and could very well be the root of the problem... or so it seems.... I can't help but think that as my friends have said, a clean install of the latest drivers certainly can't hurt. This is going to get sorted out in time...

...that and a newer, more potent PSU, to be on the safe side !

Hope all the other winners will get their prizes soon too. Thank you OCC and all the sponsors again!

#2167141 Clean the water loop

Posted by cjloki on 05 January 2019 - 02:32 PM


i have been guilty of not cleaning my loop and it doesn't turn out well i assure you,... my friends were using a silver solution at the time and had few if any issues (don't ask me google it) but i had zerex antifreeze automotive in mine and it only lasted about 3-4 months, so there ya go...
these guys on here are great sources of info for the asking ! 

You had AF clog up...... Wow cjloki, tell me more man. Any idea what happened?

I know I ran into an isse when i switch from pt nuke to AF but that was determined to be existing crud that I didn't get cleaned out properly. Turned out the blocks were cleaned out but the CPU block received and clogged itself with all the just that was left over.

Talk to me goose!!! I must know.


yah i went on the road for a couple of months and it sat and sat and sat some more, and then some more, and then i came home and ran it without checking it... like algae and micro-bio crap was growing in it...

eventually my temps started to go up and i had to disassemble it all and flush it... i pretty much gave up on my h2o loop and went with the corsair systems... i sold the 3x120 rad to somebody on here for not much $$ and i got a message that they had a hell of a time getting it cleaned out, but eventually it went on to live again ... so there ya go boinkie !  

btw that  was zerex 50/50 mixed with distilled water my reservoir was a one gallon aquarium converted for the purpose

#2136274 Microsoft to give away Windows 10 as free upgrade

Posted by cjloki on 29 January 2015 - 09:10 PM

i put the win10 technical preview on one of my older machines last week, just to test it out, (and posted a few of my findings on my facebook) and while i had intended to dig deeper into it beyond the gui, this week, i got called back out to drive for this saturday and won't have time to do it justice...soo maybe when i get back from this next trip i'll be able to look deeper into win 10...

mean while, just the gui changes are a bit weird and will take some getting used to, (my first impression was something like win 7 crossed with ubuntu and some win 8 thown in) but that's just me...i had really gotten used to the active corners of win 8-8.1, and those are now missing, there is an option to set your gui to open in metro style or you can keep the metro attached to the start button popup, sort of win 7 style, and scroll thru the metro icons with the mouse wheel in the lower lefthand corner...basically the gui is pretty familiar and reminiscent of it's predecessors and should be fairly easy to navigate by anyone who regularly logs in here on OCC...


i have received the tech preview response app invite today, but havent had the time to give my feedback yet....maybe tomorrow...

#2107814 downloadedl from cnet cpuz got pup conduit malware bytes

Posted by cjloki on 23 November 2013 - 09:46 AM

does anyone remember back in the day when cnet was absolutely reputable and loathed this kind of addon bloatware tagging ? ...years ago cnet was all for us enthusiasts, and would never think of this...i used to put much faith and trust in these guys, and zdnet too, but now not so much...

Some of the icons have stopped working for me on the mobile site as well - perhaps IP Board update?

Updates for IPB mean downgrades and bugs :lol:


how about this ^

#2086892 The Great Debate: TN vs IPS

#2084929 Taking 26th

Posted by cjloki on 15 April 2013 - 08:12 AM

I was a SETI guy for years and then heard about folding here. I can't remember who was the inspiration behind me @ OCC but I give you all credit. :slap:

I guess being in the medical field I thought folding more apropos.

Endorphiend is next on the hit list...25th in 3 days or so...love the 3770. It's about 2.5 times my CPU/GPU in my HTPC :)

for some reason I don't understand my Sheila gets all cranky when I have all the machines folding,...i don't get it but if not for her I'd fire all my junk up and catch up with you in short order...you better get moving there bro in case I change my mind...
