    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST How Does this Look?

    If it’s just for gaming I would drop the 5900x down a peg to maybe a 5600x. Could use the saving to upgrade to 32 gig of ram or even stretch the GPU budget to a 3080, but that’s just me.

Just testing the water to see if it was a wide...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Poor performance in origin games?

    Just signed up to EA play specifically to play Jedi Fallen order and BFV. Unfortunately just spent the morning trying to run them properly on my Recoil IV laptop with a 2070 Super, with no joy. GPU usage is in the 60’s with both games running at 50-70 FPS and 50-90 FPS respectively. Just at work...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Recoil 4 Overheating

    I remember on my 8750h laptop (Proteus) 90 plus while gaming was quite normal. 60 plus idle temperatures do seem a bit high in my opinion but that’s speculative because I haven’t got the laptop. Hopefully someone with the same chassis could chip in

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Laptop returned but need to activate windows again?

    Pirated? I downloaded it from the Microsoft store. I take it the problem is with the code I got? I always thought they were legit but obviously not

    I’ve just RMA’d my machine on Friday and I’m just assuming it will take absolutely ages considering the circumstances. I’m going to leave it a few weeks at least before I enquire about it

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Not a 3080

    How much extra is the 3080? It should be around the same price and it’s way better

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Brand New Recoil IV 15.6" Overheating Immediately

    My GPU is maxing at 85 very quickly then throttling. I have underclocked/undervolted the gpu so it hovers around 83-85 but that comes with a substantial performance loss
