    Help me choose a mid-high end graphics card for my Phenom II rig

    It was getting close to the max allowable temperature on CPU. Moreover, with the hyper 212 in there it acted like a wood burning stove when gaming, and further heating of the case was not desirable. The 212 just wasnt up for the task! Goes to show you how changing the video card can have a...

    The Family of man just got Bigger

    If selection has actually occurred why don't we see evidence of it in the natural world? or in the fossil record for that matter ? I.E Half evolved creatures - we've been keeping tabs on a whole spectrum of animal species for at least the past 300 + years you'd think something would change or at...

    The Family of man just got Bigger

    Evolution is the process of successful mutation. Which is impossible and paradoxical when you consider the odds. Fill the entire state of texas with quarters, a total of 10 feet high and pick the golden quarter not just once, but over and over again for every single animal. 99% of mutations are bad.

    Hmmm. I've never heard of this AIDA64 issue you speak of.. I would recommend downloading the latest version from the AIDA64 website... either extreme or engineer edition, either should work. I've used AIDA64 on well over 20 machines without any compatibility issues but it sounds like you may be...

    Yes, still have the ancient drivers at the moment, because my internet connection from this desktop is bad (wireless is almost out of range). Okay for forum stuff but forget about downloading drivers.... So I have the new drivers being downloaded onto my laptop, then I will transfer over to my...

    Help me choose a mid-high end graphics card for my Phenom II rig

    Well gosh damn those VRMs get toasty! Wow, it seems crazy they should be this hot for extended periods of time. This was done after a 40 minute gaming session with Battlefield 4 on Ultra, didn't notice any glitching out and all appears well. Fellow RX580 owners, do you notice the same thing...

    List your most fun or favorite overclock

    Yep, (overclocking/rooting/installing custom ROMs) tablets is something I do in my spare time. I have a kindle fire HD with an aftermarket rom, as well as a customized and overclocked Motorola Xoom. Also have the Xoom II but the bootloader is locked from the factory, so no go on OCing there.

    List your most fun or favorite overclock

    Nice! I'm assuming you had to root the phone, then install a custom rom with an OC kernel? Then use something like setCPU to configure your overclock from within the android OS?

    Help me choose a mid-high end graphics card for my Phenom II rig

    Seems I've run into another little snag: Wolfenstein: The New Order is crashing out on launch. After a little research on the topic it appears the game may have an issue with the RX580. I haven't re-installed the game to see if that would fix it, but I can try forcing some of the game settings...
