    Why no multi-streaming on high-end soundcards?

    OK but I don't see any point in that. Might as well just use one soundcard for gaming and TS3 audio and connect that to the main input on the headset. There's no need or advantage to using two soundcards or two inputs on the headset that I can see and doing so would prevent using all three...

    Why no multi-streaming on high-end soundcards?

    I don't use WMP so I can't say if it lets you do this but most media/music players allow you to specify the output, so you'd set it to the secondary output that's available when using the settings as shown in Mussels picture and make sure the Default device in Windows Sound options is set to the...

    Why no multi-streaming on high-end soundcards?

    You've lost me there. What sort of 5.1 headset do you have in mind, USB or analog? I presume analog as you refer to using the soundcard. If I set the soundcard to stereo and connect my analog headset to it, then I'm not getting any surround sound in-game. There's also no difference between...

    Why no multi-streaming on high-end soundcards?

    Yeah but that's not much help if I want to use headphones connected to the Xonar for both game and comms audio (I obviously can't wear two headsets!) and my Hi-Fi connected to the Xonar for high-quality music playback.

    Why no multi-streaming on high-end soundcards?

    I'm not so sure. Certainly I know a few people who've bought a Xonar and been surprised and disappointed to find it can't do what their basic onboard soundchip can do. Also, it's not just for gaming where it's useful to be able to have voicechat on a separate headphone channel from the gaming...

    Why no multi-streaming on high-end soundcards?

    The main issue I have with these high-end soundcards is that they don't generally have multi-streaming. With my on-board Realtek soundchip, I can have game audio coming out the rear port and Teamspeak3 audio coming out the front port for my headphones. Or I can use the front port for gaming and...

    Game running from RAMDisk started locking up

    I recently got a faulty kit of 2*4GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 LP replaced and bought an extra kit of the same (one black, one blue) whilst I was waiting, so ended up with 16GB. I've been using an 11000MB RAMDisk since to run ArmaII without any problems but recently it's started randomly locking...

    Problems updating to 12.6

    Yeah, I've already got that driver installed now as I mentioned earlier.

    Problems updating to 12.6

    Yeah, you'd think it could say "This driver is not compatible with your hardware" and provide a link to the legacy driver. If I'd done a Express rather than Custom install, I wouldn't have even seen that it wasn't updating the video driver or installing half the components!

    Problems updating to 12.6

    Hmm, the ATI Driver Autodetect and download has found a "12.6 Legacy" so I'll give that a go. That shows it's going to install 8.970.100.300 and all the other components, so it's looking promising :) EDIT: Yep, all sorted now. Panic over :D

    Problems updating to 12.6

    I uninstalled everything with the ATI installer and now installing 12.6 it doesn't even list a display driver (or quite a few other things that were previously listed, just Catalyst Install Manager, APP SDK Runtime, HDMI Audio driver and Vision Control Engine)! Device Manager shows the...

    Problems updating to 12.6

    With 12.3 installed, when installing 12.6 it says that the Driver is already up to date. Unless the driver hasn't changed since 12.3, this can't be correct. The install shows the driver to be installed as 8.951.0.000 and CCC shows the current 2D driver as 8.01.01.1235, although Device Manager...

    Suitable 4GB DDR3 to go with existing 4GB?

    Thanks but I'm more inclined towards a couple of these Crucial 4GB DDR3 1600Mhz Ballistix Tactical Memory... or Corsair 4GB DDR3 1333MHz Memory Module CL9(9-9-9-2... Neither company's website lists those as specifically compatible but I can't see why they wouldn't be and both websites list...

    Suitable 4GB DDR3 to go with existing 4GB?

    I guess it would be OK if I can get £15-20 for the existing 4GB. I'm not sure what it's likely to get though as I couldn't find this type on e-bay at all.

    Suitable 4GB DDR3 to go with existing 4GB?

    Because I can't find it anywhere, not even on Crucial's website, which doesn't list any CL6 1.8V sticks.

    Suitable 4GB DDR3 to go with existing 4GB?

    MAXXMEM Benchmark Results Thread

    Not very impressive compared to what others here have achieved, but I've got a fairly decent boost from tweaking the settings with my Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600 LP 2*4GB sticks. User Name- doveman Intel/AMD- AMD RAM- Corsair Vengeance LP DDR3-1600 RAM Voltage (Optional)- 1.5v CPU-...

    MAXXMEM Benchmark Results Thread

    Thought I'd throw in my DDR2 results in case anyone's interested. I did quite a bit of testing a while ago but unfortunately seem to have mislaid the results. These were the best settings I found though, and bumping the NB from 2000 to 2250 gave quite a boost (I think it affected the write...

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    I dunno. I'm using AB 2.1.0 as well and just ticked the "Unlock voltage control" box under Settings. I'm still running CCC 11.8 but that only has AMD Overdrive, which is all you need. Not sure why you want to see ATI Overdrive as well.

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    Guess I'm one of the "lucky ones" :p You're lucky with your overclock. I have to bump my voltage up to 1.174v to run at 920/1375 and my card's stock cooler has 2 fans and a fancy heatsink. To be honest, I don't see any connection between the fans/heatsink and needing to increase the voltage...

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    I've got a Powercolor 6950 2GB non-ref and that unlocked just fine. Why do you think unlocking the shaders is any worse than overclocking the card? Both will obviously make the card do more work and run hotter, so both will probably "kill your card slowly" or reduce it's lifespan, but if it's...

    PowerColor and TechPowerUp Pimp My Rig Contest Winners

    Congrats to the winner and please stop the whining. He won fair and square (i.e., within the rules of the contest). He deserves some credit for having the skillz needed to get such a low score (I wasted too much time trying, before realising I didn't know what I was doing and wasn't going to get...

    Not reading VRM Temp on 6950

    Only problem I'm aware of is the the VRM sensor not working, but obviously if one thing is broken it makes me worry about the quality of my card. If Powercolor were to say that they've purposely disabled the sensor (although I'm not sure if they can even do this) then I'd be less concerned...

    Not reading VRM Temp on 6950

    Well someone else has shown that their XFX 6950 using the same CHiL8214 controller as my Powercolor reports the VRM temperature OK. I don't know if Powercolor could have crippled this feature somehow or if I just have a faulty board.

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    I mean flash the modded BIOS to the card.
