    Fastest memory for Sandy Bridge? (2500K)

    Ever since I originally bought my 2500K, I've run it with 1600Mhz memory, specifically these. Recently I've started playing Fallout 4, and I've noticed in a lot of areas I get frame rate drops down to 40's, regardless of what settings I use (even on low I get the drops). The interesting thing...

    A site for comparing prices of digital downloads

    Earlier this year, I started working on a site to index the deals from major digital distributors (Steam, Amazon, Gamer's Gate, GreenManGaming, etc.) After a lot of time and effort, this is the site today: http://www.cheapshark.com/ So, if you're interested in finding the cheapest place to...

    HD 7950 Issues...

    So I just got my HD 7950 installed, and instantly having issues. The card is installed correctly, and I'm assuming it is getting plenty of power. The issue seems to be all software related. With no AMD drivers installed, everything works fine. As soon as I install drivers, whether they be...

    2500K Stuck at 1.6Ghz - Idle and Under Load

    So, I have run into a bit of an issue. It seems no matter what settings I use in the Bios with my setup, my 2500K is now stuck at a sluggish 1.6 GHZ. Earlier this week I got a new cooler (CNPS9900 MAX), and had overclocked to ~5GHZ. The overclock seemed pretty stable with no issues for the...

    Cooler for 1155, that doesn't require removing motherboard?

    Discovered the stock heatsinks with sandy bridge cpus are absolute trash (was hitting about 80c+!) Anyone know of a good cooler that doesn't require installing a bracket behind the motherboard? I found one example, but not sure if it is very good...

    Retasking Rear Audio Jacks with ASUS P8P67

    So, I just recently upgraded to Sandy Bridge, with an Asus P8P67 mobo. Everything went very smoothly, except for one issue with sound. On my old Gigabyte mobo, I was able to retask rear audio jacks. I made 3 of them "Headphones" so I could have multiple output devices plugged in, all putting...

    Thoughts on Asus P67 Sabertooth?

    I'm upgrading to a Sandy Bridge cpu soon and was checking out motherboards. The Asus Sabertooth has me intrigued. I really like the design, and it seems like it would help with cooling as well. Anyone have any comments/thoughts on the board? I've always gone with Gigabyte in the past, but...

    Has Anyone Migrated a RAID to P67?

    I'm looking to upgrade to a Sandy Bridge CPU soon, and just wondering, has anyone successfully migrated an Existing RAID 0 (or any other) to a P67 chipset from an ICH10R controller? I've found varying results from a google search, and just wondering if anyone on TPU has feedback on the issue...

    HD6950 Dying?

    Last week Bad Company 2 had a punkbuster update that caused the game to crash if you were running a program like MSI Afterburner, or Sapphire Trixx. So, I closed Trixx and played BC2 for a couple hours without issue. Now, the problem is, in other games, I'm getting artifacting followed by the...

    Transferring a RAID to new Motherboard

    Right now I'm using this motherboard for RAID 0 (Intel ICH10R): GIGABYTE GA-EP45-DS3R LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel ... If I upgraded to a P67 chipset board, w/ RAID support, would I be able to keep the current RAID intact (just setting the two required SATA ports to RAID0)? For example...

    .Net Framework - Windows 7

    Crossfired 5850's Issue

    I just installed a second 5850 today for crossfire. Power is fine, connected the two cards with two crossfire cables. On reboot, CCC seemed to detect the second card fine, asked me to enable, which I did. I fired up the Far Cry 2 benchmark, and after a run through, discovered I'm actually...

    Trine Digital Copy, free, first come first serve

    So, Gamer's Gate has Trine for sale, and since I like the game and I like gamer's gate, I figure I'd give a copy away: giftcard 1: http://www.gamersgate.com/giftcard/74603F72B7 (redeemed) giftcard 2: http://www.gamersgate.com/giftcard/BE1E5BCFC0 (redeemed) giftcard 3...

    Intel X25-M Seems Slow

    Yesterday I installed my new Intel x25-m 160GB. I copied everything but Program Files (x86) from my RAID0 to the SSD. Then I made an NTFS link from the SSD to the RAID Program Files (x86). I could then boot fine from the SSD, and am able to access all my Program Files as if they were on...

    Force AA with HD5850

    I have a couple games that I would like to force AA on. Trouble is, putting CCC to a forced setting seems to do nothing.... When I tried to install ATI tray tools (after getting a signed driver working) Windows goes to a grayscale bar screen whenever tray tools starts.... Not really sure if...

    Forcing AA in Stalker: SOC

    Is there any way to force AA with CCC in this game? It appears to not work.... :( It wouldn't have bothered me, except I installed Stalker Complete 2009, and now the rest of the game (textures and such) looks fantastic. So lack of AA is really an eyesore.

    Antec 1200 Questions

    I'm thinking about buying an Antec 1200, but the LED's are sort of a con for me. From the manual, it looks like you can disable the fan LED's by not plugging in the power light leads to the motherboard? Is this correct? Does it disable all the LED's? Also, how loud are the fans, there are so...

    Laptop screws heads stripped

    I went to put in my new drive today, and realized that I forgot the fact that the screws holding the drive in are totally stripped. This happened the last time I tried to take the drive out. Dell uses super soft metal for the screws, even if I use the exact right size, the driver will just go...
