good thread, but rivatuner is universal, not just nvidia, i use coolbits for nvidia, rivatuner for ATI personally
Making this thread a Sticky may be a wise move.
add PC Power & Cooling to that power supplies list. how dare you leave out one of the best power supplies on a list like that.
Whoops! How did I miss that?
As for a side note you could add this into your text:
Overclocking is a science, as it were. It takes skill, knowledge, and patience.
Too many people expect to much without putting in any effort on the learning side of the culture. If you are one of these, you are NOT eligible to be an overclocker
This is from Master OPB and Hell-Fire and I have to say I cannot agree more with them.
Hard OC'ing can be done with minimal $$$. Here is proof, all you need is some time and understanding.
One of the first CPU's out of AMD's fab.... 2 hours after it was delivered (date: May 2005.) Ram is also @ 250mhz One fast machine...
or my 2924mhz Axp on air
For powersupplies, you might want to add Thermaltake (toughpower series is awesome) and Mushkin has some nice power supplies too
I'll add mushkin as they have a great rep, and i guess they did just start adding PSU's..
I have yet to see any solid evidence Thermaltake is a great supplier as of yet...
I'll add em if you can find a nice list of un sponsored happy customers that arent total idiots to this stuff
Well, I happen to have a couple of friends who have them, and they swear by them. Great bang for the buck and pretty solid. However, I do understand what your saying.
I was going to write small forum review about the Mushkin 650W PSU on TPU but I had to leave it since I lost my 7950GX2 card and 6800GT doesnt draw nearly enough juice out of +12V rails. Intentions however was to leave all my own opinions out of it by just showing some results, not to turn it into a marketing bull...
Paint however on the cover of these units seems to be on "bling bling" line. Pretty much does same job with mirror
Of course I know its all about people's opinions as well but someone likes it to be like that, some dont.
imo bling bling on a psu is kinda.. bleh. waste of time for a lot of people, outside of the outside left that people *might* see in a window...
I'd rather have a better psu than a an led fan..
but that may just be me.. I love the signature big fat grey box the PSU has achieved over the years
That's the point where it is about opinions
I personally could not care less is the paint mirror polished or not, but I certainly do know some peoples do, no matter how good the product would be performing (though it is a little weird)
But then again, the very first Mushkin unit was not aimed much into an extreme overclockers direction but more like to gamers side. Statement however may sound a little misleading but I can say it will handle even heavier system since one testbed it went through was using overclocked Prescott 670 CPU with CF X1900 XTX. I'll end it here now since its getting too much offtopic
Bumpage, Added a Core 2 duo section to be updated later, and going to add a DDR2 overclocking section when I get my AM2 setup going.
i just read this for the first, and wish i had done so earlier! it's pretty much what i knew about a64 already, but it's very clear and concise, which is perfect
plus, i fully agree with the rma commentation
Added a basic DDRII blurb that may answer a few basic questions about it..
I'll ad more in depth to it when I've had more time to play with this stuff..
very nice thread man..great job..
but where is Heroichi??
explain please because i`m not to good at english..
