  2. Hey guys, New player to Star Citizen. Have always wanted to play the game and just recently have had more free time so I gave it a download. My CPU is bottlenecking and not sure what I could do to possibly fix it. The game starts and runs okay in the beginning, but as I move around and start progressing a bit, I notice my CPU hovers at around 80%. Had this issue with Tarkov as well, but I stopped playing it when it started happening. I would appreciate any advice. My setup is as follows: . OS Name Microsoft Windows 10 Pro Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i9-10900K CPU @ 3.70GHz, 3696 Mhz, 10 Core(s), 20 Logical Processor(s) BaseBoard Product ROG STRIX Z490-E GAMING Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 32.0 GB Video Card: ZOTAC 3090 OC Thanks for your help in advance.
  3. As the title states. Is streaming allowed to youtube.com or twitch.tv while Star Citizen is still in alpha phase or pre-release? Streamers can attract more people to play. That is more money the game can make. That is more money in DE pockets.
  4. It looks quite promising. Not the typical WD, but several dozen people who you play. Rather play it on uplay instead of epic, It's not on steam for launch.
  5. found this on reddit, looks pretty good, better than Roccat power grids in some respects. The creator says it can support three devices at once so far.

    Ongoing Discussion New build

    I am getting ready to build another PC due to the fact that my current rig is going on 4 yrs old (still solid) and I am passing it on to my kids so they can start to dabble in the PC realm. My current rig is a mini ITX. Although it was fun, I'm going back to a micro ATX mid tower size. New build - CPU- Intel i7-8700k Cooler - NZXT Kraken X62 Rev2 Mobo - Asus ROG STRIX Z370-G Gaming (mATX) Memory - Corsair Vegnance RGB Pro 16gb DDR4-3000 Storage - Samsung 860 Evo 1TB GPU - Asus GTX 1080 8gb ROG STRIX , but if new cards pop soon might swap. Case - Corsair Crystal 280X RGB mATX mid tower PSU - Corsair HX Platinum 750w Also gonna grab a 32" ultra wide to pair up with a 27" So this will be a RGB build with most of the components having that feature. I want to build a solid rig but not trying to max anything out this time around as I will probably do another build in a few years. Will throw up some pics once its done.

    Ongoing Discussion Lets see your Rigs!

    Lets get an updated thread of everyone's custom Rigs that they will be using and/are already using to play SC. Please attach a hardware list and note any future upgrades you'll be making. Probably try to limit to 2-4 pics per post to limit load time on smaller devices and tag your chipset (AMD or Intel) in the tagline. Cant wait to see what you guys are running! I've already posted this on my profile but I'll start anyway. ------ CASE -- Phanteks Enthoo Evolv PH-ES515E_GS Aluminum/Steel Galaxy Silver Window ATX Mid Tower Computer Case MoBo -- MSI Z170A KRAIT GAMING R6 SIEGE LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX Intel Motherboard CPU -- i7 6700K 4.00 GHz Unlocked Quad Core Skylake RAM -- CORSAIR Vengeance LED 32GB (4 x 8GB) 3000, Cas Lat 15 CPU COOLER -- DeepCool CPU Liquid Cooler CAPTAIN 240 WHITE BOOT DRIVE -- Samsung 960 evo 500GB M.2 GPU -- MSI 1080ti FE PSU -- Corsair RMi Series RM850i MODS CABLES - CableMod custom sleeves LIGHTING- Two 12" Pure White Cold Cathode GPU- modded w/ Corsair H55 and NZXT Kraken g10 MONITOR -- Samsung UHD 4k 28" FANS – Triple Fan Mod for top of case
  8. Not sure if this is the right subforum but I just wanted to share my new gaming PC that I've built. After my old one was really showing its age (i5 2500k with 8GB RAM) and having issues where it would randomly decide to shut down on me and forcing me onto a crummy laptop for a week I felt it was time to get something new which would also provide me with the means to actually play Squadron 42 and Star Citizen at some point. Here is the list of components that I used and some pictures ASUS ROG MAXIMUS X CODE Intel Core i7-8700K Corsair Hydro H115i Corsair 32GB DDR4-3000 Vengeance RGB (2x16) ASUS GeForce GTX 1080 Ti OC Strix Gaming 11G Corsair Carbide Clear 400C White Corsair AX860 PSU Samsung 960 PRO M.2 512GB SSD Corsair ML120 Premium - Twin Pack Corsair ML140 Premium - Twin Pack Picture of all the components prior to unpacking and assembly It was a tight fit due to the midsize case but I was able to fit everything properly. I replaced the original casefan and the ones for the radiator with the ML fans. And here's the end-result! I wanted to go with an Aegis Avenger theme and I believe it worked out great I got the Aegis decal from a site called Redbubble
  9. Finally finished. Everything plugged in and set up. Fan speeds were finely tuned and I'm happy with the results. Got the whole RGB thing going, so I can fit in with the cool kids 😁. Yes, that is a G600 MMO Mouse from my Star Wars the Old Republic early days, found it at the bottom of old hardware boxes in the garage (works like a charm still after all these years). Just in time for 3.0. Also, does anyone know how I can get back to Imperium team speak? Is there a link within the forums? Here's some pics and specs: -I5-7600k unlocked ( would have wished to overclock - but too scared to take the plunge ) -Asus Strix B250h mobo ( besides, i don't think this supports OCing ) -Kingston 2133 8gb Ram (nothing fancy) -Intel m.2 ssd 128gb -Western Digital 2tb blue 7200rpm (i think) -H55 AiO ( yes i know, but this is great for a novice like me for the first time) -Cooler Master CX 550m bronze 80+ semi modular -2x cooler master jet flo 120mm fans (options of quiet/max performance 3pin adapters) -Cooler masterbox lite 5 case with 1x 120mm pre-installed fan. -Monitor is a asus 23.6" led 5ms 1920x1080 -Keyboard is from the cooler master masterkey s lite until i get my hands on a red mech kb -Any questions feel free to ask! 😁 Ps. Im looking forward to my next build!
  10. Hey everyone, I mentioned earlier that I will be somewhat returning to get involved with this community, and that time has come sooner then expected. I've scrapped together $2500 Australian Dollars to push myself back into the PC community. Does anyone from Sydney etc. Melbourne know of a good PC website that can sell, insure and deliver finished builds? Anyone with any information is very welcome. My uni schedule requires a 5 day full-time timetable, so I'm not really free for putting together a build. Anyone with great recommendations within Australia, or outside (has to be free shipping and tax ) on some PC websites is welcome. PS. the builds need to come with insurance, great communication between buyer/seller and preferably new builds (second-hands are cool, but just my preference). PS. No more Star Citizen 10fps on a Mac lolol Thank You!
  11. I have a 2 monitor setup and sometimes when gaming/doing stuff on my main/primary monitor the 2nd monitor to my side would go into a sort of "sleep" mode where it just goes black and wont ever come back on. Windows that are on that screen are still there and can be interacted with. The screen still comes up in display settings and is being picked up but its just all black The only way to solve the problem is to turn the monitor off (which sends all my open windows to the main monitor) and then turn it back on, it will then go back to normal and act normally for a while then randomly go black again. There is no way to make the issue occur, sometimes after hours of gaming it doesn't come up once, sometimes 30 - 40 mins in it happens. Having something playing on the 2nd screen seems to make it happen less or flat out stops the issue from occurring/reoccurring, but that could just be luck as it has gone black while YouTube for example is playing. As far as im aware nothing from the software side "should" be effecting it as nothing has really been installed that is new/hasn't been on the system before and also caused the issue, though an update to some app might be doing it. If anyone has any tips ideas please share
  12. As some of you may be aware, over the last 2-3 months I have been speccing out, and then building my new gaming monster. Whilst it's name is still a work in progress (if anyone has any good ideas, I would appreciate it), I have now completed it and am using it (I forgot how much of a bitch it is to setup a new PC software wise...). Without further ado, I present the Imgur album of my new PC. http://imgur.com/a/vePIx Specs: i7 6850k (OC'd to 4.4ghz) Asus Rampage 5 Edition 10 Motherboard 64gb Corsair Dominator Platinum 3000 DDR4 Samsung 960 Pro 1tb nvme SSD 2x Samsung 850 evo 1tb SSD Corsair AX 1500i Power Supply 2x Nvidia Titan X Pascal (2050mhz clock, 10200 Memory) Windows 10 Pro 64 bit Case: Thermaltake Core W100 (Hard to find anything that would fit my rad overkill) Cooling: EK D5 Pump PWM EK 360mm Coolstream XE Radiator EK 560mm Coolstream CE Radiator EK X-RES 250 EK FC-Titan X (Pascal) and Backplate (x2) EK Rampage V Edition 10 RGB monoblock (cools PCH and CPU and VRM) EK EKoolant UV Green PETG 16mmOD Tubing Other: EVGA HB SLI Bridge Cablemod Modflex Lime Green sleeved cables (UV reactive) Cablemod UV Magnetic Strips (4x 60cm) Firestrike Results: http://www.3dmark.com/fs/11348319 GPU temp under load hit a max of 46C, CPU hit a max of 71C.

  13. Well the Gpa came over for the holidays, saw my sweet ass rig (courtesy of @Juntau and the SCB community), and said "Here is a $1000 bucks. I want a pc that is fast and cool like yours." I said "Alright Grandpa, but only if we team up later to play some Overwatch and pwn some n00bs!" So my Grandpa is 86 years old, obviously he is not going to be a power user playing VR games everyday. Just needs something that is fast, efficient, and affordable. Obviously the budget is $1000. Doesn't need to be a power house gaming rig either. Light internet surfing, email, excel sheets, and copying data/pictures now and then. He would also like for it to have the ability to "play games" (I'm not even sure he knows how to install them LUL). This is where i'm at right now: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/M2tfVY = $1138 Couple things I want to keep in this build: Black and White Themed I love the NZXT Case and Water Cooler that I picked currently - not changing these two items Would like to keep these so I can overclock the proc and get more performance out of the i5. MUST have an optical drive Would be nice to fit a brand new copy of windows 10 into the budget if possible. Would be nice if I could include one led light strip to accent the Whites/blacks Lets get this puppy under $1000! Feedback needed!
  14. I've been having some issues with my PC lately, and they seem to be getting worse. I figured I'd ask here in addition to a few other forums since I know generally the PC gaming community can be pretty knowledgeable about issues like this. Anyway, here's some info: Specs: OS: Windows 10 Pro CPU: Intel i7-4770k GPU: AMD 290x Motherboard: Asus Z87 pro Power supply: 750 watt RAM: 16gb Symptoms: Blue screen of death (usually get error code "WHEA_uncorrectable_error") about 4-5 times every day for probably the last 2 weeks. Severely impacting the usability of my PC. Troubleshooting steps: I've got information from BlueScreenViewer and the Windows Reliability Monitor, but I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be looking for. I've included some screenshots of what I've been seeing below if it helps any. If more information is needed just ask. Screenshots: Blue screen viewer: http://imgur.com/a/dp4Fh Reliability monitor: http://imgur.com/a/A1pX5 Any help is appreciated.

  17. Hi all, the name is Tom I have a passion for growing the sim communities (including space sims!) and, if you look on Steam guides you can see I’ve written many helpful articles for DCS which have now had nearly 20 thousand unique views, as well as piles of positive comments from a new generation of simmers. VR PC's With Virtual Reality set to be a big hit soon I’ve decided to build my own PC, but as I’m keen on helping fellow simmers, I figured I could help the community out with the hardware as well: I’m opening an invitation for anyone that is interested to order a VR capable plug and play PC from me. The PC will be fully assembled with the software installed, and with a 24hr burn in test as well. You will have a 3 year warranty too. I’ve done the research and testing and have made sure everything is compatible, so that when it arrives at your door all you have to do is unpack it and turn it on. My Experience I have over 20 years experience in building computers and I’ve worked in the IT industry for nearly as long doing professional PC assembly, desktop support and automation solutions. From the hardware to the software. I also used to run my own gaming PC business called OZ PC, which was featured in PC PowerPlay magazine in 2013. The problem with official Oculus PCs I know Oculus and Valve already have partnered with brands like ASUS/Dell/Alienware. But they all have a fairly big flaw which is that they are made from proprietary components. Meaning that if something breaks you are reliant on those companies to source an uncommon part, and to fix it for you. If you’re out of the warranty period, you’re out of luck and out of pocket. If the model is no longer in production then you might not even have the opportunity to fix it, and you’ll be forced to buy an entirely new computer. This is where my PC’s come in. They’re all built with common and interchangeable parts which are easily sourced locally from almost any computer parts store. This compatibility also has the big benefit of me customising it, or helping you upgrade it later down the road. It might only be one or two parts here and there in the future to enhance your PC. Having said that of course I build these with quality brand name components to keep you at top performance for years! Availability I’m currently offering 3 different types of VR ready computers, but I’m happy to tailor any of them to suit individual needs. Shipping initially only in Australia but if you are in the US/UK/Europe please let me know and I will source some reliable component suppliers there and get a computer built, tested and shipped to you locally. I’ve based all 3 builds on computers I would buy for myself or a relative and not just something that is cheap or nasty. As you can see for yourself the prices are very competitive and it’s close to just the cost of the components and assembly. It will save you a lot time researching compatibility, assembling and mucking around with software installations. Just plug it in and have fun Feel free to PM if you are interested, or ask away here! The 3 base models are : Oculus / Vive VR Recommended PC: $1770 AUD Shipped! CPU: Intel 4590 3.7Ghz Turbo GPU: Nvidia GTX 970 RAM: 8Gb SSD: 120GB HDD: 1TB OS: Windows 10 64bit edition. Oculus / Vive Extreme Simulator PC: $2499 AUD Shipped! CPU: Intel 6600 3.9Ghz Turbo GPU: Nvidia GTX 980Ti RAM: 16Gb SSD: 500Gb OS: Windows 10 64bit edition. Oculus / Vive Flagship PC: $4399 AUD Shipped! CPU: Intel 5820K 6 core / 12 thread CPU! GPU: Nvidia Titan X RAM: 32Gb Quad Channel SSD: 1Tb OS: Windows 10 64bit edition.
  18. Idk how long I've been talking about this, where if you're nervous about building your own PC, go to Best Buy and upgrade the computer from there. Linus takes a closer look at that
  19. Heya all! So my current PC is about 5 years old and is starting to stutter when playing newer games. I'm interested in building a new PC. I'd like to build as proficient a gaming PC as I can, maxing out at around $1400. I've been saving in preparation for this, and goddamn I want a decent build. One catch. This is my first PC build. SO! Advice, and finger-pointing at essential resources, would be appreciated. But mostly I'm looking for recommendations for pc parts and where to find them. I want to have the best parts that can fit my budget, so all shout-outs and recommendations are welcome. This is a gaming rig, and I want it ready for Star Citizen. Also, I'm looking for a new display, so any mid-range model recommendations there would also be appreciated. Thanks. So? What do you guys think?
  20. Globalfoundries confirmed today that they have successfully qualified the 14LPP process and delivered working 14nm product samples to AMD. Both companies confirmed via a release issued to the press today that AMD will be introducing CPU, APU and GPU products next year based on Globalfoundries’ “most advanced 14nm FinFET process technology” dubbed 14LPP. AMD confirmed that it will leverage the considerable performance, power efficiency and significant die size reduction enabled by Globalfoundries’ 14LPP process into CPUs, APUs and graphics products spanning personal computers, data centers and immersive computing devices. Lisa Su – Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. – President, CEO We successfully executed many of our near-term tactical priorities in the third quarter, while also taking several key steps as a part of our longer-term strategy to focus AMD on delivering great products, driving deeper customer relationships, and simplifying our business. Highlights include delivering strong double-digit sequential revenue growth in each of our business segments; expanding our product portfolio with the introduction of several new APUs and GPUs that improve our competitive positioning in key markets; forming the Radeon Technologies Group to bring a vertical focus to our graphics business and help strengthen our performance in traditional graphics markets, while simultaneously establishing leadership initiatives in emerging — immersive computing markets, like virtual and augmented reality. Despite the existence of three+ different iterations of GCN namely GCN 1.0 ( HD 7000 series ) , GCN 1.1 ( R9 290 series) , GCN 1.2 ( R9 285 and 380) and Fiji ( R9 Fury X, R9 Fury and R9 Nano) which is based on an updated GCN 1.2 design; according to AMD’s Chief Technology OfficerMark Papermaster there have only been two generations of GCN so far. With the next major iteration – 3rd generation – coming next year in the form of the “Arctic Islands” family of graphics chips. Arctic Islands will feature three major improvements over AMD’s current current R 300 series and Fury series line-up. These include second generation HBM, next generation GCN architecture as well as a more advanced 14/16nm FinFET manufacturing process. The three of which will define the performance and power efficiency characteristics of the Arctic Islands family. On the CPU side we’ve managed to confirm that both of AMD’s next generation high performance x86 and ARM64bit CPU cores, code named “Zen” and “K12” have also successfully completed the design phase and reached tape out and are on track for availability next year and in 2017 respectively. Only five days ago we have also heard a whisper about AMD’s hotly anticipated Zen CPU core meeting “all expectation” in testing with no “significant bottlenecks” being found. GLOBALFOUNDRIES’ 14LPP FinFET is ramping with production-ready yields and excellent model-to-hardware correlation at its Fab 8 facility in New York. In January, the early-access version of the technology (14LPE) was successfully qualified for volume production, while achieving yield targets on lead customer products. The performance-enhanced version of the technology (14LPP) was qualified in the third quarter of 2015, with the early ramp occurring in the fourth quarter of 2015 and full-scale production set for 2016. According to the joint announcement today, 14LPP is in excellent shape. With yields already hitting “production-ready” thresholds. Meaning that the only thing left for 14LPP to enter volume production is for total capacity to meet demand. Which should occur sometime in 2016 as the process continues its ramp-up, which has been kicked off in Q4 of this year. 14LPE is the early access “low power” version of the common Samsung/Globalfoudnries 14nm FinFET process. While 14LPP is the second generation, high performance variant that is set to succeed 14LPE. Despite its name, 14LPP should deliver better performance as well as lower power consumption, the only caveat being its later availability. 14nm FinFET will offer engineers nearly double transistors to play with in the same area as the current 28nm process. 14nm FinFET also has significantly faster switching speeds, which will translate to significantly higher clock speeds compared to current 28nm based GPUs. This is all in addition to the drastic power savings enabled by the smaller feature sizes and the move from planar to FinFET gates. 14LPE – Early time-to-market version with area and power benefits for mobility applications 14LPP – Enhanced version with higher performance and lower power; a full platform offering with MPW, IP enablement and wide application coverage
  21. Specifications for Intel's Broadwell-E CPUs have just been leaked, revealing that Intel is planning to release a 10-core 20-thread i7 CPU this generation. Better still is the fact that this CPU will be usable on currently available X99 motherboards. These CPUs are now rumored to be launching at Computex 2016, which is in line with previous rumors that stated that they would release in the first half of next year. The main changes of this CPU from previous generation Extreme series CPUs is that it's flagship will have two extra CPU cores, a stronger memory controller and the higher power efficiency that Intel's Broadwell architecture and their 14nm manufacturing process provides. Right now Broadwell E CPU are rumored to be released in the first half of 2016 and launch at the $1000 price point. The CPU is rumored to come at the same clock speed as the currently available intel i7 5960X, but with the small IPC improvements of Broadwell and the increased core count it should give users a 20% performance gain in highly threaded CPU loads. These CPUs will be available in 6-core, 8-core and 10-core models and will come at a range of clock speeds: Source: http://www.overclock3d.net/articles/gpu_displays/broadwell-e_to_launch_at_computex_2016_with_10_cores/1
  22. This is what I'm thinking so far. Cost isn't a matter of no concern, but I have the money to splurge a bit. Thinking 5930 because its stock clock is higher than the 5820, going Haswell-E because of the boost 6 cores should give when dx12 is up and running with future games. Already have a beater gpu for now that I'll use until Nvidia/amd come out with their die shinks/hdm2 next year, then I'll go 2x SLI/crossfire of whichever I prefer, hence the 1000w power supply. 16gb of ram for now, if it ever becomes an issue I'll always be able to add 2 more 8gb sticks. Have a 500gb 850evo ssd already purchased, but eventually plan to go M.2 ssd at some point. How's it looking for now? I'd be glad to discuss any changes or suggestions. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2MyChM
  23. Intel INTC +0.41% and Micron jointly announced a brand new memory technology today, dubbed 3D XPoint (Cross Point) memory. 3D XPoint is fundamentally a new class of memory, the first to be introduced in many years. With current architectures, the system memory and storage are usually two separate subsystems. Take a PC for example. In most PCs, the storage attaches to the system via the SATA interface or PCIExpress EXPR +0.00% and system memory resides in its own slots, connected directly to the memory controller in a CPU. They’re two separate entities, that each require their own interconnects, slots, ports, etc. And they operate at vastly different performance levels. 3D XPoint technology, however, because it is so fast and durable (at least according to Intel INTC +3.45%and Micron), could be used to replace both system memory and storage with a single repository, attached to the processor via a much wider bandwidth interface—or perhaps reside right even on the same die down the road. This type of configuration could not only enable much smaller form factors and simplify manufacturing, but be much more powerful and responsive too. Imagine an ultra-small form factor PC, for example, that can instantly power up and start off from the exact point it was shut down, with hundreds of gigabytes of high-speed memory, that’s capable of transferring data at many gigabytes or even terabytes per second. And that the data can be accessed in Nano-second scales. System memory limitation could essentially be eliminated and there would be no latency associated with copying data from a relatively slow storage device into system memory. sources : http://www.forbes.com/sites/marcochiappetta/2015/07/28/3d-xpoint-memory-technology-could-usher-in-a-new-golden-age-of-electronics/ http://www.forbes.com/sites/davealtavilla/2015/07/28/intel-and-micron-jointly-announce-game-changing-3d-xpoint-memory-technology/ We’re talking about game changing stuff here. 3D XPoint memory could usher in entire new system architectures in not only the consumer space, but in the enterprise as well. As it stands now, Big Data analytics can use all of the storage capacity and latency reduction available. Enormous amounts of time are spent copying data to and from storage to memory. Should Intel’s and Micron’s 1000x performance improvement claims ring true, big data analytics could get an unprecedented shot in the arm. The potential applications for the technology is so wide reaching and disruptive, it’s difficult to imagine all of the things it could enable moving forward at this early juncture. If you follow technology closely though, today’s announcement is about as exciting as it gets.
