    Logitech G5 or G9?

    I like the KB, and really, do you need a G9? I had an mx310 before I got my G9 and it was good enough for CAL level CS. What do you plan on using your mouse for mostly? Unless you are a CAL i gamer who games to put food on the table I bet you'll find that the mouse you already have does...

    Logitech G5 or G9?

    Well, I have a G9 but I've never tried the G5 so I can't say much to compare them. The G9 is a damn sweet mouse with lots of awesome features and only one bad point. Ergonomics. The G9 will not fit everyone's hands so try before you buy. Also, what will you be using the mouse for mostly? I...

    Ideas? P5KC hates my OCZ reaper 8500's

    My motherboard came with bios v0701, I reflashed it to 0701, then to 0605, then back to 0701. I even cleared the cmos for over 10 min and nothing. I have since RMA'd the ram and the new stuff does the same thing, yet works perfect on another board(1200MHz stock voltage). I have looked at the...

    Ideas? P5KC hates my OCZ reaper 8500's

    Good info on core temps, will do that tonight. About the memory I contacted OCZ and they advised RMA'ing the ram. I'm curious though, can you not purchase OCZ reapers in the UK? They are not cheap here at $210cdn (about 105 GBP) before tax so I don't see why you would be willing to trust a...

    Ideas? P5KC hates my OCZ reaper 8500's

    Tatty One, I live in Canada, but that would mean being sans home PC while the ram crosses the ocean :( . Freeboy, TAT states my cpu idles around 22 (I heard I need to add 15c for the P35 chipset though) and at load its around 42c with my Scythe ninja +rev. B HS. My case is a server tower...

    Ideas? P5KC hates my OCZ reaper 8500's

    Sorry if I wasn't clear, by 667 I meant an actual speed of 333Mhz or PC-5300.

    Ideas? P5KC hates my OCZ reaper 8500's

    I have done that, everything from 667 to 1066 and voltages from 1.8v all the way up to 2.35v (2.4v voids my warranty so I won't say that I tried that even though my bios does not provide 2.35v...) it only boots semi-reliably when set to 667.

    Ideas? P5KC hates my OCZ reaper 8500's

    So I purchased my new system components last friday: P5KC e6750 2G OCZ Reaper 8500 pn:2RPR10662GK XFX 8800 GTS 320 THERMALTAKE PUREPOWER RX 550W Needless to say I was excited to see what I could get out of this setup. However it seems the answer is close to SFA as there are issues...

    Ordered a Sapphire X850XT AGP but received X850 PRO!?!?

    Nice. It can almost be seen as a bonus to not have the stock fan too. It's a leaf blower and should be replaced ASAP anyways. Then do the VGPU, VDD, and VDDQ voltmods :)

    Ordered a Sapphire X850XT AGP but received X850 PRO!?!?

    Riiight, Actually I just make calculated upgrades when it's needed, and right now getting an x8xx card sounds like a strange plan. If I had to buy now I'd still wait for cheap DX10 cards to come out. Here's a gander at my upgrade path: CPU OLD K62 450 @500MHz Next Duron 800@1000MHz Next XP...

    Keyboard Lag when ATItool Running

    Well, I ended up switching back to .24 and all is good again.

    Ordered a Sapphire X850XT AGP but received X850 PRO!?!?

    Damn, and I thought I was behind the times with my system. I've had an ati x850xt for a little over a year now running at 560/600 stable with the stock cooler and now I'm going to voltmod it to see if I can squeeze every last drop out before I upgrade again.

    Keyboard Lag when ATItool Running

    Same thing here, I get keyboard lag in BF2. I just installed .25 beta lastnight and it was fine untill I tried to play BF2 today. I was running .24 for AGES before with no problems. I'll try to load the profile and shut it down and see what that does, but I'd prefer to keep ATItool running...

    fear? haha

    lol, I seem to have illicited an emotional responce! short story: you like FEAR, I dont. no problem. and yeah, I'm on my way to being a 1st Sgt. :)

    fear? haha

    hmm, no, I usually play Battle field 2, Rome, AOE 3, Live for speed (not need for speed) and flight sims so I'd say I'm not a run and gunner, I just didn't like FEAR because the game felt monotonous. The AI was the best I've seen and the graphics were interesting, but I thought the level desigh...

    F.e.a.r Lag

    well for fear you'd need an SLI 7800 GTX 512 setup to see everything, and even then only just.

    F.e.a.r Lag

    should run fine, not exactly perfect, but fine. I bet you would be running at 1024x768 or 1280x1024 though, any higher and you will probably get min FPS issues every now and then. Personallly I thought fear was very very pretty, but not an efficient engine and the gameplay was only so so in...

    Fan Control for X850XT

    $80 canadian? if so thats exactly the ballpark I was hoping for. Shipping however seems to be insane right now with the x-mas rush. I don't think it will be cheap though, so far around $25-30 and thats not the fast one. everything is closed here till the 27th or the 28th too, if you are still...

    Fan Control for X850XT

    yeah, I'm in Canada so shipping might cost a bit. I have no idea how much it would be yet but if you want I could look into it. What would you be expecting to pay all told?
  21. M

    fear? haha

    yeah, I finished it in about 5 days of casual playing, then uninstalled it...great graphics, so so game.

    Fan Control for X850XT

    interesting, so I might expect a performance boost in bringing my FSB into the 2k's... I've been looking into replacing my pc2700 anchor, not sure if I want to go all out or not. Either I get the ocz value BH5 chips for cheap and limit my ram to 250Mhz or I go for the TCCD chips and get...

    x850xt agp overheating?

    good point, unless we had the same motherboard our temp monitoring software is not a benchmark. MSI K8N Neo2 Plat. btw. I think we can still compare our gpu temps since its the same pcb and sensor, could be wrong though, I'm very tired right now. but I need to point out that while my...

    x850xt agp overheating?

    well, almost. I'm Canadian :) I'm running an A64 E6 venice +3000 at 2.4G and 1.55v with the retail cooler. my room temps range from 20c (way too hot for me in the winter) to 15c (just about right). the temps I posted were while the room was 19c. The mods I did to my aircooling system...

    x850xt agp overheating?

    nice stuff, but your temps are still a little high. not dangerous but it will lessen the lifespan of your card a bit. What are your case temps? after my new mods I'm getting : CASE OPEN: CPU IDLE 24c CPU MAX 34c MOBO IDLE 21c MOBO MAX 26c GPU IDLE 29c GPU MAX 55c havent...
