    Bad Motherboard or 4930k overclocker?

    I can't help you with settings, I have never messed with socket 2011. But I can say this. Not all of asrock stuff is junk. I have a z77 oc formula, and it is beast. Could be you got a bad board. It happens with all brands. I have heard that asrock's tech support sucks. So if you can return it...

    Proprietary PSU? Or is it the low quality look to everything?

    Giveway: Sleeping Dogs

    I would love a new game to play. i'm pretty bored with BF3 and COD. Sleeping Dogs looks like a fun game. Pick me! Pick me! Plus i'm an old timer around here, and I have never won any of the free giveaways.

    Should I Overclock to my VID?

    the VID will change depending on what multi you have selected, try and stay under or at 1.52v for 24/7 use. and keep an eye on temps. my sandy 2600k needs 1.44 for 5.2ghz windows stable, which is my daily. and 1.51 volts for 5.4ghz windows stable, but at those temps my 120.3 rad starts having a...

    Are Sandy Bridge i3 CPU passe?

    sounds like a very fair price for the rig. but the ad needs a little work. move all the system specs to the bottom, and then wow! people on what this rig can do. a nice cheap rig for hooking up to your big screen tv. use it as a DVR, a media streamer, and best of all, games that play smoother...

    2700k @ 5.0 or 4770k @ 4.6? What would you keep?

    a bit off topic but my sandy 2600k needs 1.44 for 5.2ghz windows stable. 1.51 volts for 5.4ghz windows stable, but at those temps my 120.3 rad starts having a hard time keeping up with temps. I have never bothered testing for max multi. i'm going to stick with this cpu and board until i have a...

    Nuclear power is safe, but countries forced to shut down nuclear power stations

    we have the computing power to safely control nuclear power nowadays. you just have to be smart where you build them. don't put them on the coast where they can be hit with tidal waves or hurricanes. don't build them near active earthquake zones. but all of that would take someone using a...

    AMD Radeon R9 290 4 GB

    this or the 290x will be my xmas present to myself this year. along with a full cover water block. I could care less about the noise. I just need a beast of a card to carry me another few years. my gtx470 is still running strong, still maxes out BF3 and gives steady 62fps with vsync on.

    2600k@5.12ghz, 16gigs ddr3@1874mhz, GTX470 920mhz core, memory@1004mhz, shaders@1840 Not to bad for an older GPU. I do think it is time for a new vid card though. Maybe I will buy myself a nice Christmas present this year.

    Corsair 750W - CX vs TX?

    keep in mind that PSU's are a piece of hardware that stick around, if you buy a good one. you move it from build to next build. I am still running a PC Power and Cooling PSU that I bought back in the Pentium 4 days, still works perfect in a backup rig.

    Patriot Introduces the Viper 3 Low Profile Memory Kits

    I would not call this low profile. maybe if these were 30nm Samsung's relabeled with a heat spreader. then I would be excited.
