    DDC 3.3 damaged pcb replacement

    Timing rules

    From what i was able to gather, most professional overclockers that know the secrets of ram, tend not to tell their tricks regarding that, because it seems to be one of the hardest things to get right ;)

    Timing rules

    Changing the Refresh rate from 7.8 to 3.9 can be VERY important, dependant on the module... the 2400 Transcend 10-13-11 i have, require that, my Gskill 2000 9-9-9 do not, to reach good speeds and timings...tREF does matter too, but it was negligible compared to the first one...having a low TRC...

    GeForce GTX 680 Can Be Flashed to GTX 770?

    According to Anatolymik (who did exactly what you described quite a while ago) his present SLI hack is very difficult to counter, due to the way it is written (pretty low-level and early in boot if i remember) Before that was possible,Nvidia even had entered some malicious code into their...

    Radeon HD7990 vs GTX Titan

    I wonder, why NV and ATI both fail at delivering a proper dual gpu driver solution, which makes dual/triple/quad gpus indistinguishable from a single gpu, besides maximizing fps dependant on resolution etc...especially in dual gpu cards where the pcie overhead is possibly nonexistent,compared to...
