Boycott the 1080
Have you checked to see if your cpu or heatsink needs to be lapped?
Occasionally there is a manufacturing defect on one or the other causing
I read that the beta is pretty green and that it doesn't run all that great.
So far, there hasn't been a whole lot of illegal downloading of the...
In order of importance :
1. Power supply
3. everything else
If your Acer works fine, keep it. Spending money on a monitor just for "LED" doesn't make sense. If you NEED a new one, go with LED.
Don't skimp on the power supply. This is a good one at $60 (after rebate) : CORSAIR CMPSU-550VX 550W ATX12V V2.2 SLI Ready Cro...
That power supply is terrible. A Corsair 400 watt is better.
Do you have an operating system?
If you can spend $600 like you said, then do it. You...
Please, don't you dare tell us the model you bought.:slap:
Does it throttle down for a second between sets or does it throttle down during the pass? What program are you using to read your cpu clock? Maybe...
Plasma is the 4th state of matter. Who doesn't want that?
Are there any limitations with the trial other than the level 20 cap? If I like the trial, can I buy it and continue where I left off in the trial?
I'm not suggesting that those SSDs are unreliable, I'm just saying that you would have 24x the
chance of some sort of OS failure.
What's with the 4870x2s? They didn't even do 3dmark tests or anything. BTW, that many HDDs in RAID 0 is just stoopid. I wonder how long you could go...
My rig is very similar to yours (ud3p and E8400 with 4gb RAM) and these are some general guidelines when I overclock :
1. CPU Host Clock...
I've never played WOW. What are the odds of me buying it and enjoying it? :rolleyes:
I'm not here to bash, I'm just an FPS junkie who's looking to...
Good mobo, good ram, I'd say 4ghz+. Every chip is different, though.
In your screenshot, in CCC I see that you have "Enable CrossfireX" checked. It looks like maybe you didn't hit "Apply".
E8600s can almost always be reliably overclocked to at least 4ghz. That depends entirely on your hardware though. You should post all of your specs....
Just to confirm your suspicions, when I have my E8400 at it's stock clocks, I can't get the temp to read over 36C even when running prime95.
WOW! Major improvement! Looks more professional too! Great job!
I just checked it out and in addition to it being slow, (I have fast cable internet) the first thing that I noticed is that there's no WOT (Web Of...
I have an XFX XXX Edition (factory overclock) 5870. I have to say that it is the biggest POS ever.
I have had nothing but problems with it since I...
