Into retro first person shooters. Perhaps you are a connoisseur of the dark 90’s games? Then you are going to enjoy Cultic from JasozzGames. Fast and fun gameplay with the right mix of 90’s retro feel and gameplay with some modern gameplay tweaks thrown in for good measure. Weapons feel right, and the graphics have the right blend of chunk. Currently you can pick it up on Steam for $10 with an “Overwhelmingly Positive” average review score.
Here is the video from JayzTwoCents explaining on the cause of the overheat and melting of the NVidia 12+4 gpu power connector. Basically, due to the slight bends that commonly happen in pc cases, the small weak metal breaks and can cause shorts and odd power draws through the cable to the connector. You can watch the video below, or read the explanation on Igor’s Lab.
NVidia has launched their own investigation, with their board partners, into the cause of the power adapter failures. We can assume that the 4090 meltdown will be resolved with a new designed power adapter.
