    [SOLVED] High temps, AMD FX-8370

    Isn't this fixed automatically? Or do you actually need that specific update to disable core parking?

    [SOLVED] High temps, AMD FX-8370

    So, installed the EVO 212 last weekend. The installation itself was pretty easy actually. Max 49C when Ive run prime95 for about 5 hours. Disabled this as you said, and clocked the cores up to 4,3 again. Seems to be working as intended. Thanks!

    Who's going to buy Elder Scrolls Online now that they've ditched monthly subscription?

    If they have managed to resolve those issues, the game might be worth looking into again. Especially now, when they have removed the monthly fee

    Who's going to buy Elder Scrolls Online now that they've ditched monthly subscription?

    Actually no, I was in some dungeon, and you were supposed to hit a lever of some sort. But the lever wasn't clickable, or operational. Nothing happened, and you had no option to do anything with the lever. At that time, there was probably a 50 people or more at that location, just standing...

    Who's going to buy Elder Scrolls Online now that they've ditched monthly subscription?

    Tried it a while ago when I received beta-access to the game. Played for an hour or so, but a bug in one of the missions made it so nobody could progress the mission. That totally ruined the game for me at that point. Now that they removed the monthly subscription fee, I might look into it...

    OFFICIAL Magicka 2 (Review)

    Been playing Magicka 2 for about 11 hours with some friends so far. Really enjoyed the game! The gameplay is fun and at the same time challenging since you have to use right combos for certain enemies. The voiceovers for the dialogues are quite funny actually, since alot of the dialoges have a...

    Newbie need help

    Personally I use Debian Wheezy as distro. Always have :) If you are new to linux, I wouldn't recommend it. This guide covers the most(although its a bit outdated), but you could find a bit more simpler guide if you just google around, or use youtube. When using linux and such, google is your...

    New Computer. Need help monitoring

    Just fill in your info here: http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us Unless you want a specific driver for your card, I would have used the version you get from the link above.

    New Computer. Need help monitoring

    If you did that, the drivers you are running should be old. Try to upgrade, might solve some of your problems

    Want to setup my own Vmware Server with Public Static IP with few Virtual machines

    Why dont you just install Virtual Box, and fire up that VM? Either that, or what xvi said

    Server Hacker

    This so much. Key auth is the way to go. You could look into chroot jail, if you are feeling paranoid.

    Want to setup my own Vmware Server with Public Static IP with few Virtual machines

    VMware server on public IP? Not a good idea in my opinion. Put the server on internal IP, and make one VM for management with public IP instead. Make sure you restrict the access to this vm, or secure it properly. Put two virtual NIC's on the management VM , so you can rdp/ssh/other to the...

    [SOLVED] High temps, AMD FX-8370

    I was actually just watching some videos about the EVO 212. Cheap, decent cooling, seems nice. Think Im just going to order that :laugh: Probably buy some Arctic Cooling MX as well. Cant wait to see the changes when DX12 becomes more used in upcoming games

    [SOLVED] High temps, AMD FX-8370

    Yes actually, it has been a while. Not keeping up to speed shows of here :roll: Been thinking about getting an upgrade from the AMD FX-8370, to the new Intel Skylake i5/i7 when that is released. Not sure if it will be a significant upgrade though, and if I compare actual improvement to costs...

    [SOLVED] High temps, AMD FX-8370

    Changing the stockcooler into something better as of next month :) It does not run 1,4v, its set to 1.040v in BIOS. I think its just because its split over the cores? Since the two first ones are running 0,875.. It keeps changing though, so I guess its some kind of dynamic function, or the APM...

    [SOLVED] High temps, AMD FX-8370

    Hey Method I used was the standard one, the pea-size in the middle. Heard that the x-version was better, but haven't tried it out yet. Just took a quick look into the bios, and the cpu runs at about 36-39C. Went into fan controll, and set 50%fanspeed if its over 30C. That improved my fps alot...

    [SOLVED] High temps, AMD FX-8370

    Hi Changed my termal paste, but Im having some issues with fps drops. Dont think Ive damaged the cpu, or anything like that. At least I hope not. Core voltage on CPU is 1.040v. Something seems broken on the cpu temp sensors though, showing stable 19C value, 0C min, and 225C max. Do you...
