I just can't stand the way Nvidia treats its customer base anymore.

DX12/Vulcan and all becoming the new standard... Just my 2c.

If you had to buy something that big, that's the way to go. 1080. I need more denture work before I can reason with that. I'm currently convinced the 390 & 390x are better than the 480 and 1070. I don't think benchmark programs give accurate gameplay stats. Also Nvidia likes to play up the 256 bit pipe song but I think that matters. The bigger the pipe the more pig you can slam into it at one time. I can't figure out how they can say compression is better. Compression always needs to be expanded. 512 is still straight through. My opinion and belief is no one right now will see the full use of the 512 bus. 390 alone has a high 384000 mb bandwidth is more than 980ti's 336000mb and their bus is 384mb.

By the way, my XFX xtr 750w psu is giving me fits. I need to RMA it. I got a smaller Seasonic 550w sitting around for temporary use. Think that's enough for a 390? I can borrow (secretly switch) my 550w with for my boss's Seasonic 650w since he doesn't use the total power of it. All of this is single rail. Do you think I'll need more than 600w to run a 390?

What is max voltage recommended for daily use ? MSI 390 +Alphacool NexXxoS GPX gpu watercooling ( vrm /vrams passive )
Is it worth to overclock the memory ? or not worth the extra heat.

Yeah. While I had the chance, I bought a spare 390x on summer sale for under $275 (that's close. I forgotten the exact price). I'd be a fool if I didn't. I have the option now to keep it (which seems better) or sell it. But yeah, I think we're not going to see a better AMD card till next year.

Cassettes! I use to sell custom loaded TDK (sa) and Maxwell cassettes for years. By 10s to 500 cnt. boxes+, any size from C-5 to C-120. The last technology of the audio cassette was really astonishing. The best Cro2 and Metal was actually better than CD. The audio range could reach 22,000 hz as oppose to 20,000 hz on CD. It had a sound depth (or breath) sound stage presents. I do miss working in the old audio shop.
The bad part of audio device listening is, the best quality sound is now in the past.

I think it should work(550w) but it depends heavily on CPU and whether its stock or heavily OCed,
the 650 should be a better choice as you already know, I'd get it in a heartbeat
FYI, I was able to run my FX 8350 @4.8 ghz and overclock 2 290X lightnings @1230/1620 on my Antec 750 HCG for a while
then it started taking its toll.

390 should consume approx 300watts at full chat

Good deal on the 390x, smart move on your part. I'm looking to acquire one in the future and you are right,
we wont be seeing a better card til '17
C-5? never seen those before, just the regular C60's and C90's with occasional C30 sprinkled in
Did not know tapes had that much dynamic range, but you prolly needed a Nakamichi Dragon to best a Cd,no??
If ya pockets are deep you can still get Metal tapes and tape decks on Ebay thumb.gif

The 390 & 390x prices shockingly jumped back up as availability diminishes. Especially 390x (outside of Gigabyte's locked mV board). But that's the way computer component stuff goes. One week, I got a cheap, 1/2 cost replacement for a customer's motherboard, the next week, it was twice the retail cost. Lucky me, the buy was at the right time. I've had great buys on cpu's but sometimes motherboard prices were through the roof or not available.
Studio jocks and bands would buy the C-5 to give away as samples to record promoters and agents. They used them for auditioning night clubs and event promotions (like political rallys). Radio station jocks looking for jobs would use C-5 for voice samples from their past radio shows as auditioning tool. I even had a guy who was selling black market U.S. radio rock shows to England. It was a crazy business.
I sold junk cassettes, too. TV get rich scam guys selling, 'get rich quick schemes' would want thousands of cheapie cassettes. A ten cassette pack of how to buy and sell homes, a ten volume pack, teaching 'how to buy stocks' etc. Big churches wold buy bulk on a monthly bases. They'd ask me a size, type and price, have my helpers spin them off on big, cassette loading machines, put'em in a box(s) and ship them off.
I remember the studio guys like Nakamichi Dragon. I used Tascam, Teac V 970x, Akai GX-9 all for dbx archive and Akai GX70r for personal use. Can't be cheap around clients and customers. Funny how I can still remember that. I'm sure someday I'll get back in it. I still got a small cassette library in a cool storage facility. The very best sound came from ramping the (pitch) cassettes speed. Only a few machines were able to do that.

Coil whine. I heard that term before. Is that a spinning sound? A vibrating sound. It's not that little buzzer speaker that emits the error code? The only moving parts are the fans. If the fans aren't making the noise, whatever's making it obviously isn't normal.
I remember hearing buzzing noises from cpu controlled devices (machinery) because a certain part was not functioning properly. I think it was capacitors hooked in parallel, when one of them cease to work properly, the other capacitor(s) would take up the slack. It would continue to run but the full load would be a strain on the one capacitor (or remaining capacitors). Performance in general was slower, hotter running and made errors or cease consecutive sequences. The buzzing sound was caused by forced voltage straining, like bottle necking.
I imagine lowering voltage would relieve some of the load but going lower than the recommended settings would cause voltage to jump across connections rather than making clean contact among components. The jumping across connections would cause it to burn intermittently (a brown out effect), widening the gap across connections. When this happens at a micro scale you can never find where it burns. Can you pin point where the sound is coming?
