Re: OpenVPN Connections

I am connected to Hostwinds VPN service and now I'm getting the proper test results. A steady 40Mb/s d/l and 39Mb/s u/l.

I wonder if installing the OpenVPN open source client before the branded...

Re: OpenVPN Connections

My suggestion (above) for a VPN service was incorrect. NordVPN is a cheap service with decent support, while Hostwinds has the best customer support. Hostwinds is more expensive though.

I'm going...

Re: OpenVPN Connections

I use 1.1.1.1 DNS now but for the VPN it didn't matter which DNS addys I implemented. The slow resolution was the same and performance was putrid.

Re: OpenVPN Connections

NordVPN would be my recommendation. Done correctly you can get 3 years for $99. They're support is fantastic. Just by entering their chat on the website, they help with what they can. No 24 hour...

Re: Cloudflare launches 1.1.1.1 DNS service that will speed up your internet

Global Managed DNS | Cloudflare (https://www.cloudflare.com/dns/)

I've tried multiple VPN services thus far: NordVPN, HostWinds and Private Internet Access. I've been through all of their support departments and none have helped resolve this problem.

I've been using this service and I like it. I can't wait until the new protocol is adopted by third parties like Mozilla.

The purpose for running the 650 as a PhysX engine is for assisting with "Particles" rendering alone...

Re: Msi gtx 1060

There is an added bonus that I find hard to believe but the results are quite good.

I configured OBS to utilize NVENC for encoding and my streaming video quality has increased significantly.

Re: Msi gtx 1060

It turned out to be the OC on the 650. I had forgotten that it did NOT like any amount of OC.

Re: Msi gtx 1060

Both Afterburner and Precision no longer function properly. When Afterburner starts it consumes 30% + cpu usage and windows becomes sluggish as hell. I have no idea what caused this.

The detail is quite good. Wildlands w/highest settings runs like butter and other game look fantastic.
I usually spend around $150 on a gpu so this one is much better than I'm accustomed to.

Re: Msi gtx 1060

I think this 1060 will be fine for what I do and combined with my 650ti as a physX card, I believe it will be more than enough for my aging system.

Thanks for the feedback FV!
