How to overclock: it's easier than you thinkHow to overclock: it's easier than you think

Got a Sapphire HD 7950 Boost Vapor-X, basically an R9 280, same bios on both. Card starts at 850 / 1250 (5000 effective), has a boost button for 950/1250. I managed to get it to 1140/1500 (6000 effective), with +20% powerlimit; been playing games with those values for a long while now so all good, card reaches 65ºC tops at 100% usage and I don't even have a watercooled system so it's not fresh inside my case either :P
What is a pity is that it seems me changing core voltage and memory voltage won't stop the crashes (it just won't use anything higher than 1250 mv and 1600 mv respectively, even if I put something like 1300 mv and 1700 mv) if I want to test anything higher than 1140/1500 MHz. Tested 1175 once, but it was getting artifacts so I toned it down to 1140; anything higher than 1500 on memory clocks, be it 1510, will crash.
This GPU has aged like fine wine though, I tested a GTX 780 on my system and I only get 5-10 fps more with that on average in games, even though GCN 1.0 isn't getting advantage of Async Compute anymore with the new Radeon drivers (because reasons). I only wish we had more Vulkan or Mantle games than DX12 and hope for more native DX12 games in 2017.

Article should note that Radeon Wattman is not natively available for all Radeon cards. So a GPU that is not RX 400 series will not see this https://community.amd.com/servlet/JiveServlet/showImage/38-1348-108319/wattman.PNG it will have only this http://i.imgur.com/1gYebDY.png meaning that I cannot adjust or change temperature instead of power priority (I can't even do this in MSI Afterburner).

Survarium review snippet How scary are the zombies in Survarium?
Survarium doesn't have zombies/mutants right now. There are plans to implement some of this with the release of the co-op mode.

Why FX 6300 over 6350 and over 8350?Reply
Dave James Avatar

In terms of a budget CPU option the FX 6300 is a fair chunk cheaper than either the 6350 or 8350, and still offers a similar level of performance. The FX 6300 can also overclock like a hero if you want to squeeze some more performance out of it.

Thank you so much. I got into the games a bit ago, started with TW:EE and found it difficult to play, moving straight onto TW2 after a couple hours gameplay. With this now I think I will finally be able to enjoy the story of TW:EE to its full without getting annoyed at the in-game mechanics and UI

I think this game is one of the best racing games on PC. better than asseto corsa, i even thinkk its better than raceroom racing experience, which isnt a bad game at all really. but i love a racing game that looks good from the chasing view, i like inside too, but i love a racing game that has a good chasing view and lets you look around the car, as your racing. i hate gran turismo for never allowing that, but yet most racing games like forza and grid and dirt. you can enjoy the outside view and see the sides of your car, plus see splash effects on the screen something else i like to see. and you will see this in ACR. auto club racing really is cool. but in need of more tracks. but its always been free to play. so you cant complain. and its a great racer. as good as project gothem even. or burnout. i have to admit i havnt seen anything as good as burnout paradise. until i saw THE NEXT CAR GAME. that looks great. but its not like ACR. to heart ACR is getting a upgrade. is fantastic news. i really look forward to it. awesome game. also looking forward to drive club. and the crew. If you want to play a great racing game right now. Get AUTO CLUB REVOLUTION. you really wont regret it.

The game would be good, if not for its way too heavy handling; it's a simcade that punishes players even more than Gran Turismo does, instead of letting them enjoy the car. You spend most of the time braking and handling, and those are the least enjoyable parts in ACR, they really need to change the way the physics work.

Also, it was kind of a pay-to-win before and even though it's way better now, as players now have access to cars that were VIP or buyable with real money currency only.

Bad thing is, it's been a P2W for so long, that lobbies kept being empty even when they changed that towards a true f2p system. I just entered the reace hangout and there's barely 7 players racing and 33 in lobby, so that "hundreds of thousands of players" statement is bs.

Nevertheless, they do mention that "vehicle physics have been overhauled to not only enhance realism but also competitive fun" (though that line is not present in this pcgamesn article), so lots of people will come back to the game to try all the new stuff and see if it's worth staying around this time.
