Hey, does anyone here know how to merge message threads on the new Hangouts 4.0? I can't seem to find the option anywhere.

Good idea. Hopefully that helps. It's stupid that you can't do it manually though.

Edit: So apparently it does it for some contacts but not for others. I don't get it. Until it's fixed I'm going to unmerge my SMS and Hangouts.

Hi, I could use some help. I got an Xbone controller to play some games on my PC. I have it plugged into my front panel USB 3. When I start up a game (ex. GTA 5) the controller works fine initially. After a random amount of time, usually about 5 to 10 minutes in, the controller will stop functioning. My character will continue to perform the command I gave it before the controller stopped working (ex. running), but it the game won't accept any more controller commands. I then have to use mouse and keyboard to shut down the game. Every other device I own works just fine in those ports. I was wondering if there was any known compatibility issues with the Xbone controllers and USB 3 that I missed.

I did update the drivers with later driver I downloaded, but not from Windows.

Edit: I uninstalled the drivers, but Windows 10 didn't pick them up. Now I have to reinstall manually.

I was planning to get a new monitor in a few months to replace my old one I've had for a while. I was wondering, if I get a FreeSync monitor, might it "fix" microstutters caused my CrossFire setup, or would it not help?

I'm thinking of switching from my 270X CrossFire setup to a XFX Black Edition R9 290X. I'm sick of putting up with CCC not always recognizing my second card. What do you guys think?

Update: I've decided against this card as it doesn't go with my build scheme as well. So, after doing some research, I've decided on either Gigabyte or PowerColor. Which do you think is a better choice?

PS: Anyone who wants to buy my 2 Sapphire R9 270Xs let me know: https://plus.google.com/101020053301231713662/posts/5seGMqNism6

So, along with the purchase of a new CPU cooler for my rig (https://plus.google.com/101020053301231713662/posts/3b5c7DtWZH7) I plan on upgrading my fans. I've been online researching all day, and the Aerocool Shark series (http://www.aerocool.us/accessory/shark_bu12.html) seem to check all the boxes I am looking for in a case fan. I would like a second opinion though. What do you guys think?

Hey guys, could use some help, as I am not getting any from the forum I posted to.

My problem: I have an R9 270X CrossFire set up. Yesterday I downloaded COD:AW and DA:I. While playing them yesterday, my CrossFire set up was working perfectly, no problems. Today though, I played DA:I for several hours and it ran fine, so I didn't think anything of it. While closing out the game though, I noticed it had a benchmark, so I tried it. I got really low, 20 to 30, frames per second. I figured I'd check to see if CrossFire was working. That's when I noticed the option to toggle it on/off wasn't there. I rebooted, uninstalled/reinstalled driver and performed a system restore. Nothing helped. Anyone have any advice?

Update: I did a clean install of my OS, still nothing. I've even uninstalled the drivers, and used a driver removal program, then reinstalled them, to no avail. Ugh!

Update 2: Problem solved after replacing the bridge and doing a clean install. Not sure which one fixed it, but I don't care.

Me too +Matthew Dey. I was thinking maybe I was really unlucky with driver software, but I've all but ruled it out at this point.

I finally decided on a new case for my rig. I ordered the NZXT S340 in black. It looks so clean and awesome. I can't wait till it gets here! What do you guys think?

Does anyone here with a GA-990FXA-UD3 know if its 4 pin sys_fan 1 header can power a PWM fan hub and several fans? Something like this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00M0R05WE

I could use some help. I just bought some new 3 pin fans for my case. I bought four fans for 3 headers. So naturally, I bought a splitter. I just connected all the fans. They all run fine except for the one on the 4 pin header. I first thought it was because I connected the the splitter to that header, but after switching the spit fans on the 4 pin header with a single fan, the header still runs the fan really slow. I'm not sure why this is, I'm probably missing something, but I'm not sure what. I am overclocked, if that might be the issur. (I dont think so) Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Does anyone have any good CPU cooler recommendations for my FX-8370? I've been contemplating the Hyper 212 Evo, but I want to know if there are other good options out there. Preferably an air cooler, as it has less moving parts to deal with. 

Update: I got a good deal on a Rosewill RCX-ZAIO-92, only $12. I was able to over clock to 4.4GHz, so I'm happy with it.
