I avoided Zotac for that reason.


edit: NVM
Just read this one has "Active Fan Control with FREEZE Fan Stop"
Maybe only the 3060ti's didn't have that feature.

I've been using a 3070 zotac card for the better part of a year and put a good amount of stress on it with no issues.

Was anyone able to get an RX 6600 XT locally at MSRP (from CC or Memory Express)?

Laptop troubles again...

So I reinstalled windows on my laptop about a month ago. I just realized the laptop is using the integrated gpu instead of the GTX one it comes with. I read that I can change it if I install the Nvidia driver and go into the Nvidia control panel, except this POS keeps crashing my laptop mid install.

Then when it reboots, it won't load up windows again. I assume cause the video driver is corrupted since it bailed half way. I have to do a system restore each time to revert the settings so I can reboot and actually get back to windows.

My question is, is there any sort of workaround to this?

I'd try to flash the BIOS to the latest version first. After that, I'd go in there (the BIOS setting) and see whether there is an option to choose between integrated GPU vs separate GPU.

On PCs, it's usually done like that at the BIOS level. Not sure about laptops since I've never had a gaming laptop with both a separate GPU as well as the integrated one.

There is a chance the GPU is borked so the install crashes half way when the system tries to initialize it during setup.

Is there any solid way to tell if the GPU got messed up?
I'm reading up something about Certified Drivers. I'm not sure if that means I can't just use the normal drivers offered from Nvidia's site.

I tried to go to Acer (my laptop) and get drivers from there, but it's just the same files from Nvidia's site. No matter what I do, the install always freezes mid way.

I'm fed up and about ready to just return this laptop but no idea how warranty works. This is bs..

Yeah, no real way to confirm, but just from first hand experiences that when a GPU can't load the driver and you've tried multiple versions it's probably a hardware issue.

Got an invite to Halo Infinite this weekend for their technical beta.

Wonder if they've optimized it since the last one a few months ago. I remember seeing people complaining about how poorly it ran.
