    Just got an FX8300 Black edition today.

    I had mine running at at 1.46v or so. 4.6Ghz.... I tortured that 8300. I think I had 1.55v set in BIOS for a boot or two, but as soon as I saw the LLC was bumping it to 1.62v under load I settled down a little. Needless to say, that chip started showing signs of death after about a year. I...

    Rule of thumb games for geforce series 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,..... ?

    Forsaken and Quake 2 were big benches to run when Voodoo2 and TNT were a thing. I think 100FPS was the score to shoot for on Forsaken. The original Half-Life also ran well on the TNT. I remember being extremely disappointed when I finally played Forsaken on the N64--the graphics were...

    Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX Vega 56 Spotted for the First Time

    I can't wait until they follow Beanie Babies into oblivion.... And I won't pay a red cent for any GPU that I suspect was used for mining--just to rub it into their faces. (I can dream, can't I?)
