    SSD not showing right in BIOS.

    I know you mentioned it but the question is does he really have 6GB of backup? Wouldn't like him to think that he has when he hasn't ;)

    SSD not showing right in BIOS.

    Are you sure its not soley GiB vs GB? 1 KiB = 1,024 Bytes 1 MiB = 1,048,576 Bytes (1024 x 1024) 1 GiB = 1,073,741,824 Bytes (1024 x 1024 x 1024) 1 GB = 1,000,000,000 Bytes sooo... 80GB / 1GiB = 80,000,000,000 / 1,073,741,824 = 74.5GiB What makes it confusing is KB, MB, GB...

    SSD for the pagefile?

    Sounds like an old wives tale that one :laugh: AFAIK Pagefile.sys is used for modifiable data/code i.e. anything that is flagged writeable. If you set "no paging file" then any modifiable sections can not be swapped out to disk. However with data/code that isn't writeable then the file on the...

    GPU-Z locks the pc if no internet connection available

    Sorry xixou I can not think of anything specific other than trying to see if something looks unusual or out of place, perhaps the fax printer. What if you try using msconfig to disable some services at startup and see if the problem goes away?

    GPU-Z locks the pc if no internet connection available

    Thanks for the screen shot. It doesn't seem to me that GPU-z is the issue here and thinking GPU-z is looking for an in internet connection is a red herring. My guess is that something is holding up the service control manager and GPU-z is having to wait for it's driver to load. Perhaps W1zzard...

    GPU-Z locks the pc if no internet connection available

    Okay xixou, I tried disconnecting the ADSL line but leaving the Ethernet / Router connected and GPU-z starts up just fine for me so not sure what to suggest. Could it be something to do with permissions and running it from the startup menu? Have you checked the event log?

    GPU-Z locks the pc if no internet connection available

    While GPU-z is running try right clicking on the top left GPU-z icon, select update and set to never.

    SSD for the pagefile?

    If you need to use a paging file or not will vary on a case by case basis but please don't tell me what I need when you don't even have a clue as to what i am doing. It seems disabling the paging file didn't work for you so your assuming it's not going to work for anyone else. BTW a quote...

    The Crappy Overclockers Club

    BIOS is useful but I get the impression from a lot of overclockers that overclocking starts and ends with the BIOS. If that's true then I guess I belong in the crappy overclockers club. P8400 CPU overclocked from 2.26GHz to 3.0GHz, Vcore increased and RAM Clock ratio changed all without using...

    EIST and VCore on auto: implications for an i7 920 & Asus P6T V2

    Just to clarify, Turbo Boost does not require EIST. EIST is speedstep BTW. Perhaps it's a problem with the way your BIOS handles Turbo / EIST that leads you and many other people to think this. If you are interested in what is actually required for Turbo Boost the white paper can be downloaded...

    EIST and VCore on auto: implications for an i7 920 & Asus P6T V2

    21 is already a turbo. The 920 has 2 turbo bins, 21 & 22. I can't tell you what your 920 VID's are for auto but for my 860 it's roughly the following for auto/normal Vcore which is basically the CPU controlling the VRM through the VID signals. (the 860 has 5 turbo bins, 22-26). Multi...

    OpenCL not detected

    It could be a number of things. Hopefully W1zzard has read your post and is aware of the fact. In the meantime if you ever need to use OpenCL it looks like you should be good to go. ;)

    EIST and VCore on auto: implications for an i7 920 & Asus P6T V2

    b. Vcore should change with respect to multi. d. Up to you and your personal definition of impact. d. Depends on the CPU, but should be well within Intels spec. e. I think with the 920 you should be able to run 21 on all cores and 22 on a single core if the BIOS is set for it. With...
