    Memory Benchmarks, PassMark and MaxxMem, Not bad?

    Just FYI, you cant compare performance to generic tests for other kits unless they also are running 4.7 GHZ cpu speed, as Intels CPU speed massively affects memory performance due to cache leveling. (Cache runs on same multiplier as the CPU) Also a suggestion for another memory benchmark...

    Small box in Bottom Right Corner of screen, only in TPU??

    you use print screen for print screen :) On a laptop it might be prntscrn windows 7 also has a built in screen capture utility so you do not even need to open paint :)

    Stallman slams Ubuntu

    Does anyone still use ubuntu? Last time I tried it it was so slow and bloated I spent more time Downloading and installing it then I did running it.

    SILVERSTONE ST45SF-G 450W enough for my build?

    I would never suggest that, I would use a 5 year old desktop before a laptop for gaming. But that is me. (I really cant understand the tablet/smartphone market either). Whats a decent gaming card cost for upgrade? $100 bucks new, maybe less used? At 1080P anyway. Look at Xbox :) Yes your...

    SILVERSTONE ST45SF-G 450W enough for my build?

    MORE THAN handles. Most people love over buying wattage, what they forget is the efficiency curve. PSUS are most efficient from 50-80% load. Which is where you should be when loaded. If you intend to run OCCT PSU killer test, then no. But that is unreal example of PC Usage. I game, my...

    Cloned HDD wont boot

    Okay two things you need to do. First of all depending on your cloning software you should disable pagefile and hibernation file before attempting to clone, these two files are very large, and more importantly take longer than normal files to copy as they are seen as contiguous. (Same thing...

    How do i get true dolby digital or dts5.1 through hdmi on pc?

    I believe AC3 is what you are looking for. Bitstream I believe is LCPM which is supported only on high end devices and only necesary for Blu-Ray. I use AC3 in FFDshow and get dolby and DTS audio passthrough on my IGPs to my receiver (It supports both) for the last few years. I am currently...

    AMD Vishera Packs Quad-Channel DDR3 IMC, G34 En Route Desktop?

    Interesting. Although having used mediaespresso 6.5 telling it not to use AVX/Quicksync, is not the same thing as not using it. The fact that IB and SB scored identically is a dead giveaway that AVX was in fact being used.

    How would you setup the page file on this system?

    I set 256-256 or 512-512 on C: drive over the last 5 years and never had any issues. Any program that NEEDS a pagefile now tends to make its own swap/scratch/temp file. Unless you have a habit of running old programs it wont cause any issues whatsoever. Some games might go past the 4GB of...

    Motherboard issues need answer asap!

    You have both PCIE power plugs inserted in the card? Barring power issues the only answer I can see is an incompatability with the newer PCIE2.0 card (which should not be a problem honestly).

    LOL I meant version, but thank you for the correction :)

    13 years of AMD loyalty being questioned

    2700K and Z68. Currently 2700Ks seemed to be a slightly better revision, allowing farther clocks on less volts. Z68 is a great bit of architecture, I found the SRT performing very poorly. However, the AVX encoding for video work is great if you do a lot of reducing HD video to ipod type...

    Why 3D doesn't work and never will. Case closed

    Never heard of this guy, but heres a news flash, 3D works precisely for the reasons he says it doesn't. Just because you are focused on one point does not mean you are oblivious to everything else going on around you. So focus on the screen and let the 3D stuff (which IME is usually...

    Microsoft Working On Not One, But Two New Xbox Product Lines

    Why isn't Xbox based on PC so one game could play on either? That would be a real heads up page turner. they make both so it should be simple enough to tune one, the other or even both to make it happen

    Sick of Satellite TV Bills

    I built my own antenna as I needed a fringe range unit to pull in stations from Philly. (I live on the Jersey shore). It works and works pretty well when conditions are right, but if it got wet, the signal would get crappy. As a satellite user you probably already know about this. you...

    First gen i7 ram upgrade advice

    Yeah the key is going to be where does your QPI fall down at. If you have a CPU that can easily pull 8Gs then 2000 MHz will not be a problem, not all will do that, ffewer still apparently go much past it (Personally I have not had any issues hitting 8G QPI but I only had 3 chips) Now going much...

    Need Audio Suggestions

    USB increases CPU cycles. so you lose the benefit of running a discrete audio card. so no offset precludes teh few ercentage you gain from tri carding. well i never tested.. personally my 6850 plays EVERY game at 1920x1200 so my opinion is you have a real high res monitor. Which most likely...

    Help with ASUS AI Suite II

    Yes, the gen-loses at intel left all this tweaking stuff to us, but limited our clocking. Intel fails in SOOO many ways, if you bought a car based on these sepcifications you would be embarrassed. only 1 in 20 cars can do 150 mph. All get the "prostreet" tag though... its stupid...
