    *Help* XFX Radeon 6870, No video & Fan stuck at 100% when trying to boot up!

    I'd say RMA it. Did you ever overclock it?

    UNIGINE-Valley BENCHMARK scores

    Well, I just noticed that I made the test on 8xAA when the requirement was 4x AA :p Here's my rectified score, same specs: Q6600 @ 3.0 Ghz and HD6870 @ Stock. Plus I can't do 1080p, no monitor for that.

    UNIGINE-Valley BENCHMARK scores

    Q6600 @ 3.0 Ghz (It says 2.4 there still lol) // HD6870 @ Stock The min FPS was due to a god damned single microstutter in the middle of the benchmark, still better than I expected. *walks away with shame with his horrible result compared to the rest*

    Mysterious OC problem?

    Ok, got it, didn't know it was so technically limited I guess, thanks :p

    Mysterious OC problem?

    Hehe, thanks for the input. I expected an answer like that, the board is a pretty budget one because my ASUS P5B-SE had died and it was more of a replacement. It hisses a lot more while Intel BurnTest is going. Doing a few seconds of BurnTest makes the voltage go to 1,216V which is basically...

    Mysterious OC problem?

    So while I can't get my new PC, I've overclocked my Q6600 to 3.0 Ghz, but that's about it, if I increase it, it won't boot at all, and the motherboard won't even do the 3 boot tries (Gigabyte), it'll restart manically. Not the PSU as it happened with 2 different ones. I think it might be the...

    Are you still running a CPU designed before 2008?

    The mobo is an MSI MS-7104. Cheapo and old :laugh:

    Are you still running a CPU designed before 2008?

    Q6600 on main rig and a Pentium 4 on the 24/7 machine, I don't know the model, CPU-Z doesn't help.

    I5 3570k voltage and temps ?

    If the load was brief, it probably wasn't enough for the core speed to change. Your temperatures seem absolutely fine to me.

    OFFICIAL Tomb Raider (Discussion)

    I also completed this game already, really good, and it does bring my HD6870 to a sweat :p Or my Q6600, because when it lags in more populated zones, the CPU usage increases and the GPU usage automatically decreases, so I'd guess it's a CPU bottleneck. Nonetheless, awesome game, loved it.

    CPU seems to under clock itself

    I'm running into the same issue but with an overclocked Q6600, which starts lowering its multiplier automatically in prime95 like crazy and just shuts down in Intel BurnTest after a minute and it's not temperatures, so back to stock. Edit: Even with stock clocks it does this downclock (Not the...

    Yup, got it, thanks. The Corsair is well saved for as soon as I get the Z77 Extreme4 and the i5-3570k ;)

    Gigabyte GA-G41-M-Combo

    I'm not gonna stay with this mobo, so, I'll just use the 2x2GB DDR2 I have until I get the rest of the computer. :)

    Gigabyte GA-G41-M-Combo

    One more thing I just read the Z77 Extreme4 (What I'm gonna buy) has some memory incompatibilities, not sure which (I think it's only with 1800+ Mhz RAM?), I just read it on a Pro/Con conclusion of a review. Now, the RAM I bought (The Corsair 8 GB, CMZ8GX3M1A1600C9) isn't on the supported...

    The GB website doesn't really detail that, so I guess that might be it... Thanks.

    Gigabyte GA-G41-M-Combo

    So, I haven't got my new PC yet, but I did get the RAM... hoping it would work. I bought a stick of 8 GB Corsair memory, DDR3 running at 1600. From stuff I've read on the internet and the memory datasheet, I thought it would downgrade it to 1066 automatically, but this isn't the case. All I...

    RealTemp General Discussion

    Oops, okay then, thanks. Anyway the sensor tests seem to show a bigger discrepancy between cores 0 and 1 and not 2 and 3 like you say it should be. Cores 2 and 3 seem more balanced in the distance to TjMax, as below (Tested with C1E and EIST off): This is with stock clocks and stock cooler...

    Upgrading...

    Thank you for all the answers! Glad to know, yes, I am running the Q6600 at stock speeds... So good to know the gains will be considerable. Probably it is the Q6600 bottlenecking the HD6870 in certain games :p

    Upgrading...

    After 4 years with my humble Q6600, I decided to dispose of it, it's getting old. Well, it'll still have to suffice probably for a few months until I get the money, but this rig is what I'm going to get:I already have a newer graphics card, the HD6870 bought last month, for starters (I had the...

    RealTemp General Discussion

    Hello, I'm sorry to bump this thread, my CPU is a Q6600 G0 stepping, I've been trying to calibrate its core temperatures, but with no success, but before I went into further details by doing sensor tests in RT, I used that tool you posted, and it tells me (by converting the hex to decimal) that...
