Funny that LFS still had a better interface & community features then, than AC now. Huh.
In my mind AC has never past the Beta stage. It's woeful in so many areas.
I think you've mentioned it before but What's your preferred sim and why? I've got some steam credit to burn, I have ams and rf2 in my wish list and also heard race room is ok, if you've tried these which is worth the dollars?

Test drive, commodore 64...with a joystick lol

Here's a picture (no idea if this is working :-)

Just let me know if you're up here in Brissie and if you want to give it a go.
Sweet rig

I'm pretty sure my video card shat itself last night and needs to be RMAd. The screen locked up and went multicoloured, and when I rebooted, Windows no longer recognised the card because it reported an error. I updated drivers with a clean install, downgraded drivers, reseated the card, but it would no longer be recognised by Windows. So I've chucked my 980 back in for now.

I'll get the results up tonight.
Nooooo, bummer.
I was crazy busy during the race and running a motion simulator

This took my interest
Yeah, do tell!

It's a 3dof one (seat mover & rear traction loss - pitch, roll and yaw) and I built it myself. A mate up in Moloolaba has built one quite a few yeas ago...I tried it...and crazy me couldn't resist of course :-)
We need pictures.... :)
Pleeaase no, that would be too embarrassing  ;)
I mean the rig is ok I think, it's just that I should be a bit faster with it. Need more seat time, yeah.
Yeeeeeeessssssssss, pictures, more infos

A setup guide from Chris Hayes (youtube), his setup videos are pretty good too

Yeah I think it is quite common particularly if the ram modules are not on the motherboard qvl list.

Mine were. It was a pain in the arse because I'd changed my mobo-CPU-Ram and didn't reinstall windows and so suspected it was that because it had run fine for a couple of weeks and didn't start playing up after a windows update....I re-installed windows, and still had the problem till I realised it could be the ram.
Turns out it wasn't the ram, but the XMP. I'm pretty sure I've got it manually set to the same speed, timings and voltage as the XMP but now it's stable....go figure.

I hope it's fixed for you buellersdo, crashes are a pain in the arse.
So far so good in bf5, I've now just got to get good at the game lol. But from what I've read online anything over stock clocks can be hit or miss even with xmp, especially the high speed stuff, more so if not tested by motherboard vendors (qvl). Hope @imperious can get his system sorted too, because as you say it's quite the pita

Yeah I think it is quite common particularly if the ram modules are not on the motherboard qvl list. I was running my xmp 3200MHz @ 3466 and tested using hci memtest and all was OK until I started using bf5. I'm now running @ 3333mhz with tighter timings, with manual tuned voltages. GSAT tested for 1hr and a couple hours of bf5, no crashes now.

Previously, xmp 3200 set in bios, 1.15-1.18v for vccio/vccsa and 1.36v dram, manual 3466mhz override.

Now, tried a preconfigured 3333mhz profile in bios, manually set 1.2/1.25v vccio/vccsa and 1.42v dram, with slightly tighter than xmp timings (also preconfigured in bios).

Anyways I think it's worth using gsat if you need to test ram, particularly if the system is freezing

Shutting down msi afterburner and its off-sider rtss seems to have solved the crashes in bf5 for me, assuming it's rtss since it is also an overlay software

Edit, nope after more crashes in bf5 (game freeze, instant quit to desktop, no bluescreens, no driver crash errors) I decided to dig deeper. I use hci memtest @~400% for memory stability testing in Windows so I thought it was good. I've heard google stress app test was better but needs to run in Linux, so I gave it a run and got errors pretty quickly, a few tweaks to memory clocks and voltages and gsat lasted an hour. https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?73665-Our-preferred-memory-stress-test
So far no more bf5 crashes even with gpu oc back on with afterburner and what not running in the background. I think this game is really ram intensive compared to anything else I run on my pc

Merry Christmas to all, hope the beer flows without any restrictor and don't gain any ballast.

Sorry for the early drop out.
My PC rebooted to a motherboard/BIOS screen saying I had a CPU overheat. :o
Didn't know how to fix that, so I just turned it off and let it cool down.
Hopefully this isn't an on going issue. :'(
Just check that your Fan/CPU cooler is not blocked with dust.
Yep, clean out the dust if any, repaste the heat sink if it hasn't been done in a while...assuming all fans are working
Good, fun racing last night.  A couple of the public guys were good racers.

Thanks for corralling it all Phil.
There was a few good racers, had a bit of fun but kept losing the car usually near the end of each race lol

Thanks, I need to have a look at that, battlefield 5 kept crashing on me last week and I went through all sorts of drama trying to resolve the issue. Uninstalling drivers, updating windows to 1809 manually (even though 1803 just came through recently) new drivers not installing because windows was trying to do it, couldn't get into safe mode to ddu old drivers because my password wouldn't work (not sure why) but made a new one and was all good. Wasted about a couple of hours, but I reckon it was this because it was the only thing different, playing online with mates

Yeah I didn't see that, the only real difference though is no gaps at the bottom (all buttons, materials are the same) and it's the same as the one in the reddit picture. Not sure if they'd do the limited edition one again, at least any time soon.

I'm not convinced it's gone. maybe the yellow version but as per Phil's screenshot there is another version of it that's all black.
https://www.fanatec.com/au-en/steering-wheels/clubsport-steering-wheel-formula-v2-1162.html it's back up for pre-order black & red

okay cool. well 1.275v didnt crash aida64 and the lower voltage meant average CPU temp of 66 degrees. running cinebench now the  will give Intel burn test a run
Seems good, I normally use asus realbench (uses h264 encode) and prime95 with avx disabled (v26.6 disabled by default, other versions need to manually) for about 2 to 4 hours
