    FPD2485W died

    So my most favorite computer part/accessory that I have had for years that I would like LEAST of everything to break, just broke. Was in a game and I heard a pop, then the screen just went completely black. It looked like it rebooted itself twice and the LEDs on the panel still work fine, but no...

    5870 Fan issue

    For some time I have been having a fan issue which it would just be very loud. Louder probably at slower speeds ironically. Tried taking it apart and running compressed air through it to no avail. I believe its the fan bearing itself. Tried talking to ASUS and I can easily replace the fan...

    Computer randomly cuts off

    Im sure Shadowfold noticed it as well during our L4D game, but my power has just been cutting off (or instant shut off, not sure) in intensive game situations. More so if I host, less as much if I dont, but it still happens. Not entirely reproducible so far, but annoying when it happens...

    So yesterday I tried getting my Q9550 past 3.3ghz by experimenting with voltages. I tried all sort of ranges of voltages, but alot of times it would either not boot up, blank at loading windows, or shut off after loading windows. I tried every voltage notch from 1.25 to 1.4 and while they get...

    Stalker: Clear Sky Benchmark results

    http://cs.stalker-game.com/en/?page=news&item=119 Has anyone tried this? I would be curious to see your guys results. EDIT: No AA and at Default settings. The game doesnt play nearly that smooth, probably because I have every single bar to the right. No AA and at Ultra settings.

    Does OCing cause BSOD "memory dumps"?

    So once in a blue moon and it might be because my OCing, while playing a heavy intensive game, it will suddenly stop and blue screen me. Most noticeable is it saying it needs to do a memory dump which it then "counts down" in a way. Then it reboots. OC? Yay? Nay? Usually doesnt bother me as...

    Surprising 1GB 4870 results.

    I, even as a fanboi didnt expect this. http://www.anandtech.com/video/showdoc.aspx?i=3415 I guess ever since I went from my 2900XT 1GB to my 4850 512MBs I disregarded that a simple memory increase could give performance. We need a W1z review up in here!
