    980ti & "weak" WoW Performance

    I don't have a full 4k screen, but running mine off the system resolution (LG ultra wide, 3440x1440) on the regular medium settings netted me these scores... Do you have CUDA installed as well? When I'm running wow, one step down from the highest settings, I get anywhere from 75 to a capped...

    980ti & "weak" WoW Performance

    Do you play a melee class? If so thats the cause because melee is cheating, and the FPS gods are punishing are you. Going to go sit my nerf'd warlock in a corner and continue to hide/cry. Buuuuut on a serious note; that makes no sense. The 980 ti should obliterate your old 950. I've been...

    [SUCCESS] Spballer's Build: GA-Z97X-GAMING-GT / i7-4790k / Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 SC

    Couple of benchmarks since upgrading to Sierra (which was less than smooth, but only due to my own stupidity.. I should have checked the forums first and waited to update until 10.12.3 NVIDIA Web Drivers were out). Also, my Corsair H75's pump quit on me, and I was scared I was gonna fry the...

    Did you ever solve your issue? I'm not quite sure what the issue would be, but trying with and without IGFX might be a good starting point.. hopefully its been long since fixed! That is beyond me my friend, I would've probably attempted the same fixes as you. Deepest apologies and I hope you...

    Graphics Testing / Benchmarking Chart

    EVGA GeForce GTX 970 SC marks in Sierra. Pretty happy with it; have a liquid cooling plate on the way, should be able to dig significantly deeper after this is added to the system :)

    Help :( Clover Scan Entries... with a twist

    Ok, after much trail and error I was finally able to load the SSD and access its config.plist. I switched scan entries from true to false, but when I attempt to boot from it I get nothing, circle with line through it :(. Reverting it back to true from false just brings back the scan entries...

    Help :( Clover Scan Entries... with a twist

    if the ssd is connected to the machine at all during boot it seems to mess things up, even if it's removed from boot options. If it's disconnected from the machine during boot it isn't recognized when I plug it in to another bay. :( I'll try fussing around some more after work today so I can...

    Help :( Clover Scan Entries... with a twist

    Hello, I had a nice Sierra set up running when I left for work today, came back and turned on the machine and got the message; Welcome to clover 3974 ...Scan Entries... Just hangs. I dived into some research and found the issue always seems to focus around using multiple hard drives, in...

    NVIDIA Releases Alternate Graphics Drivers for macOS Sierra 10.12.3 (367.15.10.35)

    Not sure exactly what was the culprit or if it was a combination, but upon a fresh install and turning on integrated graphics all is well with the new drivers. I feel at this point that I should turn off integrated graphics, as my Geekbench score has dropped about 1500 points from the fresh...

    NVIDIA Releases Alternate Graphics Drivers for macOS Sierra 10.12.3 (367.15.10.35)

    When I click the lock and type my password everything remains greyed out and unclickable, and I can't even select it after a fresh drive install to try and reboot with Web Drivers selected. I've checked over and over again that the config.plist is spot on, NividaWeb right where it should be (as...

    OS X 10.11.1 Update

    well, it wasn't so painless an update for me (multibeast/chimera..) I mistakenly didn't read up before updating and suffered the consequences of an outdated bootloader, was stuck in yosemite without graphics support for my card, so everything was slooooow and ugly, but I read up on switching...
