    AMD Unleashes First-Ever 5 GHz Processor

    It looks like these CPUs are OEM models only. (retail maybe later) http://www.pcgameshardware.de/CPU-Hardware-154106/Specials/FX-9590-FX-9370-AMD-Centurion-1073412/

    ASUS GeForce GTX 660 DC II 2048 MB

    Great review as always but I noticed something really strange at Diablo 3 test. This card and MSI model scored almost 20-50% bigger score (at different resolutions) than the reference model while Zotac and Gigabyte scored similar. Is it some kind of an error or is it really true?

    AMD Gives Bulldozer 6-core a Speed-Bump with FX-6200

    It is strange that it's called model FX-6200 instead of FX-6120. Could this be the first stepping OR-B3 CPU?

    AMD FX OC'ers Club

    Here's my piggy ;) It overclocks well up to 4.5GHz 1.38V fully stable. When it passes 1.4V it starts to heat so badly that it reaches 80C in linx and such in just a few minutes. It is one of those samples with default VID 1.2625V and apparently those are the worst high leakage chips of all.

    Fans for Corsair H70

    I bought recently new fans for my H70 cause I had needed bigger CFM to cool better this "FX heat-machine". I wanted CM Excalibur because it gives some really nice "air push" but it's price is too high IMHO. Next I found is Titan Kukri TFD-12025H12ZP/KU(RB) so I had those instead. There's a...

    MSI GeForce GTX 480 Lightning

    This card can achieve GPU clock of 1400MHz (under LN2) and that's 100% overclock! Here: http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?p=4551763#post4551763

    How To: Enable SLI on pre-i7/i5 hardware

    Hi, Well those problems you linked there are SLI setups with Forceware 257.21 related. I'm using 257.21 w7 32bit for a few weeks now (GTX 470 SLI) and never had a single glitch. (first 2 weeks on an AMD 790X with your great mod v0.7 and now on official SLI chipset nforce 980a) My...

    How To: Enable SLI on pre-i7/i5 hardware

    ASUS M4N98TD EVO Test

    There's another nforce 980a mobo with DDR3 support, it's a MSI NF980-GD65 and it is full 3-way SLI capable with fully working integrated graphics. Still, I didn't take it cause it's more expensive with memory overclocking potential weaker than this ASUS.

    ASUS M4N98TD EVO Test

    Yes you can do it, you need to enable Hybrid SLI in BIOS and set amount of RAM memory for it.(up to 512MB) Unfortunately if you have a decent single graphics card, like GTX 260 or higher, it's pretty useless cause the physics scores will be lower than without it. It's only for the weak...

    How To: Enable SLI on pre-i7/i5 hardware

    I think I got it, Panda. ;) There are 2 different ways/methods of getting SLI on nonSLI boards and you mixed it: 1.SLI String installer v.2.0 + modded Forceware 2.SLI Patch 0.8b + regular Forceware If you downloaded SLI Patch 0.8b you are going method 2 so you can install it only by...

    How To: Enable SLI on pre-i7/i5 hardware

    I think you need to recheck these 3 possibilities: - you didn't unpack SLIMod archive correctly or it's corrupted - you're installing wrong version of SLIMod for your operating system - your firewall or virus/malware monitor is preventing mod to install Go to the SLIMod page again and...

    How To: Enable SLI on pre-i7/i5 hardware

    I got pci-e 2.0 board but like I wrote before, there's a bug with fermi cards regarding unstable pci-e mode so it switches randomly from 1.0 to 2.0 on every restart. I also wrote before that I do not have SLI bridge. Regarding my GPU score, it's in the range of stock GTX 470 SLI scores on AMD...
