    Bent Mobo CPU Socket Pins and still worked?

    So this is also based off my issue here, I decided to check on my cpu and see if anything was wrong with it. I checked the cpu, it was fine. The socket, however, looked like the pins bent gently towards one side in a circular motion. I'm pretty sure this happened due to time and not suddenly as...

    R9 280x vs R9 380 4gb vs R9 380x future

    Which card should I get? The 280x seems to do better than the 380 in most benchmarks and the 380x seems to match the 280x in most benchmarks. I would go with the R9 280x for 200$, but I'm worried that the extra 1gb of Vram on the 380x could make a massive difference in the future. Any thoughts...

    I play games at 140 fps. Specifically, League of Legends, maximum graphics. When I hit record on Dxtory, 1080p, it records 15 fps even though I'm still playing on 140. If I drop it to 720p, I can hit 30 frames recording. Why is this? I have an AMD R9 270x and an i7 3.4 GHz processor. I've seen...
