Upgraded the rig with 4 Aurasound shakers (for 4 corners/wheels) and Lapai amps running SimVibe. So awesome. The feedback is particularly good in Project Cars.

Now that my PC has been taken off life support by upgrading to 16 gigs of ram and a 1060, I can play so many more games without causing another chernobyl in my bedroom.

Meltdowns in the bedroom are the worst!

Unrelated, my favorite gaming commentators / channel has begun an LP of my favorite game, that had always been avoided because it was the emergency behind glass LP. With one member leaving and another on hiatus, the glass has been broken, and the super best friends have begun playing Dark Souls 1:

Today I learned that if you overclock your GPU your Power Supply can decide to just quit and give you the gift of a nice hard shutdown.... I will need to rectify this ASAP

Start conservative with any overclocks and go up from there. No need to shoot for the moon right off the bat.

Did you try to triple the core speed on a stock cooler?

As I understand it the OC was stable with GPU temps and everything else stable but after about 30 minutes the power supply just switched off, and did so again after booting at which point I took the OC off. I found a thread where someone blamed their failing power supply for that behavior but in my case I calculated the power usage and I only have about 20w headroom on my 500W supply after I upgraded my ram to 32GB. The OC pushed me into the 550W range so it all makes sense. I went with a 750W PSU to replace it figuring headroom is good or should I just get a 650?

Helpful as always Dan. For the $20 I'll stick with the 750 vs 650 though it's probably overkill. I really wasn't aware that the PSU would just thermal out and shut down with no warning, it's scary to think of bricking a machine for $20

Installed the PSU today and ran the OC in FurMark for about an hour with no issues.

Random question for people running Nvidia and that own Project Cars. Does your Geforce Experience list Project Cars VR? Mine does not and I can't figure out why and I'm wondering if it's just gone for everyone.

Like a couple of others in this thread, I also consider TW3 the best video game made to date. I recently finished my 3rd playthrough, this time with the 2 expansions. I finished Witcher 2 twice. Can't recall if I ever completed the first one.

Just Cause 2 was another favourite, with over 500 hours play time according to Steam. I had high hopes for JC3, but didn't enjoy that as much.

Currently playing another of my fave. series, Far Cry primal. I've enjoyed each game in that series, and they don't have as much DRM to deal with this time around which is a good thing.

Once I finish that, I'll start on Fallout 4.

I also play a bit of Rocket League and World of Tanks now and again.

Are there any other WoT or FC fans in here?

I just saw this post on the right sidebar on mobile and my first thought was "fuck you, The Witcher 3 is the best game ever made", then I realized that's what TW3 stands for.

I finally started joining the guys for some Titanfall 2 multi-player this weekend.

I have to say, it is actually pretty darn fun.

Haven't won a game yet but we seem to be learning fast.
