    overclocking i7 920

    I can admit that I just assumed that ALL 'same' mobos or ALL 'same' CPUs were the same so therefore the BIOS settings for A would equally apply to me since we both had same hardware.... wrong, wrong, wrong.... Read as much as you can find (trust me there is a lot!) then slooooowly start to...

    Building a budget PhotoShop computer

    8500's are generally good clockers so its down to a decent clocking mobo and max out the ram ... Edit: Look at Xeons as well... better clockers....

    Building a budget PhotoShop computer

    Don't use so not 100% sure, but I believe that PS is still not multithreaded so a decent CPU (E8500 is a great chip btw) with max Ram should be OK for (near) future. I've always thought it was more memory than CPU intensive, unless its changed drastically over the years altho you're right about...

    iPhone... Your Thoughts

    I still like and use my JB 3GS... it does everything I want it to. I will admit that Apple do overprice their gear (even 2nd hand prices are high) but as they tend to lead the field (iPod, iPhone and iPad) they will always charge more until someone comes out with an iDevice beater, then they...

    GIGABYTE X58A-UD7 is it worth buying?

    Titan Fenrir is supposed to be the best cooler @ mo... just not sure if it will fit on board tho .... I'm using a CoolerMaster V8 on my 920 @ present but it struggles to cope past 4.2GHz... the V10 would be better for non OC'd boards but again not sure if it would clear your choice of board...

    GIGABYTE X58A-UD7 is it worth buying?

    Voted yes... if you can afford it then go for it. I've a few Giga boards over the last 5 years and have never had a problem with any of them. Currently running a UD5 and I love it... Go for the biggest branded PSU you can afford. Case... how about the Zalman GS or MS 1000 series?

    I could have sworn that I was told (here or i7 Club or 1M SuperPi) to turn OFF x21 for SuperPi benchesi! re giude... I ignored V settings as I was a bit worried about Max then adjusted accordingly.....

    Leave RAM on Auto to begin with ... Edit: should have said... since you have a similar mobo and chip.. look at this first.. http://www.tweaktown.com/news/10827/gigabyte_shows_how_to_overclock_i7_920_cpu_to_4ghz/index.html I got to 4GHZ and understood a lot more about this chip...
