    I was and still am tempted to give that stuff a go. Looks great but I read a few stories about it breaking down and causing issues. Seemed to be fine for some people though. How long have you been running it for?

    Playing guardians of the galaxy and logging with hwinfo. That game sucks as much power out of my card as I allow it to take haha so I figure it's a good example.

    Sorry! My first Farcry since 3, have been keen to give it a go. Downloading now and will be my go to after I finish guardians :D Thanks Skramit for the generosity.

    about 9 months now in this setup but I have drained the loop twice in that time, no evidence of break down either time but assuming people would be meaning years of use. This was my first water cooled build so I think I’ll probably drain and replace fluid every 18 months but an a novice water cooler so any advice welcome!

    Posted this in the FSR thread, but link here for this not following that thread.

    NVidia have released their open-source competitor for FSR.

    If you have an NVidia card this has been available for any game (apparently) for the past two years... just no one has really taken much notice of it.
    But for other GPUs now that the technique is open-source it can be incorporated into the game by devs (same as FSR) and is therefore available to any brand of GPU, just like FSR.

    I found this rather really demanding also, card would run hot and even my ram would overheat while in other games it would be fine. Had to set an aggressive underclock and crank the case fan will playing to avoid any mem related crashes.

    Yeah it feels unnecessarily brutal haha, but it does look pretty good doing it. Playing BF2042 (trial),Horizon 5, Farcry 6 and my GPU draws 50-100w less. What temp does your ram get to before it causes you issues? My bdie routinely touches close to 50c since all airflow into my case passes through a rad.

    I've found that 53-54 is the tipping point, fans at 90% keeps it around the 50 mark, FC6 by comparison hovers around 47-48 with fan at 50%, perhaps cause GOTG is a proper next gen game and not some old engine that's been given a fresh lick of paint? That's with all RTX effects also.

    GOTG was built upon the "Dawn Engine", the same engine as Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (2016), the DE:MD gameplay and graphics engine was rebuilt from scratch for "next-generation hardware", or "eighth generation of video game consoles". Probably gave GOTG the same fresh lick of paint.

    GOTG looks better than FC6 for sure

    No I didn’t replace the pads
    The fan blowing on backplate helps a lot

    Engines in most (not all) cases now are licensed or modified.

    Cheap to make and people have shown they will spend top dollar on any GPU made in the last 5 or 6 years. 980ti's are still going for $400-450.

    Thought this was some good info that I didn't see posted here about the latest driver updates for us Nvidia owners

    Been playing around with them and 2.3 plus Their Nvidia Image Scaling (FSR Alternative Open Source) has been great, good competition you love to see it we win as consumers.

    :)
