    bogus sensors dont usually report temp changes that accurately!

    low voltage/locked may mean it stays cool, also the vrms arent affecting/raising core temps so could be true. maybe someone who has a titan/780 on water could say!

    temps sensors are on the gpu i believe. just like a core sensor on cpu!


    you talking about one of those external hard modded volt boards?? aaaah definitely not for the faint hearted!

    Well I can just back up with GPUZ and flash with NVflash5.0.x from what I see. I just prefer getting my hands burnt with solder when doing things, plus the custom OC BIOS only adds .125v, as my card boosts to 1.2v anyway. Might try it tonight. Maybe get close to 1.3Ghz mark.

    So this has nothing to do with tech, but i figured this might be fun for those on the piss - especially the day afterwards.
    So for the last weekend, enjoying the sunshine, I've been drinking Jim Beam whiskey, and orange juice with Blue Curacao which looks like this:
    [​IMG]
    And now, for the last 2 days, my piss (and everything else) is literally coming out blue. It's awesome.
    Enjoy the sun and cocktails, have fun on the toilet too.

    Anyone any experience with the 1TB platter Seagate Barracuda's? just bought an 2TB ST2000DM001 one off dabs outlet on eBay for £68 delivered, from what I've seen the write speeds on these in HDDTune average around 155-160MB/s which is pretty damn good for mechanical drives, should have it before Friday :toast:

    I got two 2TB Seagates, awesome cheap drives. Slight noise when the axle is parked but meh, least of my noise worries.
    I get bursts of up to 175-200MB/s but sustained speeds around 125-140MB/s.

    The few reviews I have seen were averaging 150-160MB/s are you running them on your SATA3 ports with AHCI enabled?

    Yup, that transfer speed depends entirely on the size of the files your transferring.

    I feel better now, only worrying thing is the paltry 1 year warranty.

    Never had a HDD fail for the last 7 years. Read up on the statistics. Out of all HDD's shipped from WD, Seagate, Hitachi, the RMA percentage is around 1.4% within the first 6 months.

    I still have a 300GB IDE drive that still functions flawlessly. (Also seagate)

    I'm in the middle of an WD RMA and have RMA'd a Seagate before aswell, though it is by large luck of the draw and for the most part most people are fine.

    OK for another Brit to drop by in here every now and again lads? Only just spotted this part of the forum to be honest as I'm more of a part-time lurker and don't post much.

    Sorted, I'll drop by every now and again if I can tear myself off Battlefield 3. Finally bought it a couple of weeks ago and got hooked on the multiplayer. Pretty sad for a 36 year old I suppose.

    Nonsense, my old work colleagues dad (57 YO) still plays Left4Dead2 and ME3 on a very regular basis. In fact he's playing it on my old MSI 6850 nowadays.
    If you look for the TPU Teamspeak 3 Server on here, you could join them in BF3 in the evenings, its quite a bit of fun.

    Definitely, I'll have a look for that and favourite it mate. I'm still pretty gash at it being new but I'm starting to get a bit better, I actually managed two rounds with more kills than deaths last night instead of having my arse handed to me which is the norm.

    I've got a few friends from over on the PC Specialist site who jump into games now and again but it's always good to have a server with people who you 'know'. Cheers for the heads up.

    Same here. If it wasn't for the kids I'd get a lot more hours on there than I actually do.
