    The Team Fortress 2 Clubhouse

    I've been playing TF2 for quite a while and I'm glad that fellows from TPU are just into it as me. I joined a clan over the summer and now we have two full-time 32 slot servers: 208.101.36.210:27015 24/7 2FORT INSTANT SPAWN HLSTATS 208.101.36.208:27015 DUSTBOWL/GOLDRUSH/BADWATER HLSTATS...

    Budget Build ~$400

    thanks shadow, but I would like to see some other opinions, and I definitely want to stick to Intel and Asus mobos.

    Budget Build ~$400

    Yes, I live in the US, and like Newegg.

    Budget Build ~$400

    List, please, I'm too lazy to got throught the process again. If anyone can fit in an E7200 with that budget lemme know :rolleyes:

    Budget Build ~$400

    I'll get straight to the point. I'm building a PC for a friend who doesnt game. He does not need any peripherals/monitor/speakers. Just the PC itself. I thought the E7200 was a good place to start, but you guys may have other suggestions. The PC will not be used for gaming or video encoding, but...

    Re-Overclocking My Q9450 with stock ASUS P5E BIOS

    For now, my 24/7 settings are sufficient, but I'm just prepping for som of the newer titles like Clear Sky and Far Cry 2 to come out because I use a 24" monitor

    Come on, I know there are other Yorkfield overclockers out there. :(

    X3350 vs E8x00

    Haha the screenshot of the ASUS PC Probe Utility had me rofling. -60 C MB temp. ASUS doesn't take too much care into making their diagnostic software. Use Realtemp and make sure you calibrate it correctly. The W1zz's directions are easy to follow when calibrating btw.

    Re-Overclocking My Q9450 with stock ASUS P5E BIOS

    I'm currently using the ASUS P5E 0702 BIOS, but have flashed my mobo to the Rampage BIOS from before but switched back because I was getting too many BSOD's and driver conflicts. With that BIOS I reached 445x8, but it wasn't prime stable, but I got a couple of runs of 3dMark06 and PCMark 05 out...

    DFI Bloodirons - any good?

    Referring to one of your earlier posts, I actually have an ASUS P5E and I love it. Thats with an X38 chipset, and probably much more useful if you plan to Crossfire and want a full-featured mobo. Sure P35's and some P45's overclock higher, but you will not get the same feature set. As far as...

    Is this vcore safe?

    Wow :twitch::twitch: 1.525 is a lot of voltage for any 45 nm cpu, even on suicide runs I never give my Q9450 more than 1.42 volts. I suggest sticking to something like 1.36 and maybe tinkering with the other voltage like NB and FSB termination will help you reach 4 GHz.

    nice two cooler

    The first Gigabyte one he showed is actually a great cooler, and got good reviews all over the internet. Look it up, it's the GPower 2 Pro which is much better than the Triton70. Go for the GPower 2 Pro, because it's a very good cooler. A lot of the guys might be discouraged because Gigabyte...

    May be time for a new case

    I suggest a couple of cases. Gigabyte Mars (Available in black or silver) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811233026 Gigabyte Aurora (Available in black or silver) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811233012 CM Stacker 810...

    Should i upgrade?

    I would probably wait for now, but you can always get a Q6600 like the other guys have said. I would personally save up for Nehalem, or at least wait until it comes out so the older gen parts will be less expensive.

    New to Intel Core 2 OCing: E8400+P5Q Pro setup

    The CPU-z link under the Memory tab for EPP Profile said 2.2 V. Try givin ur mem modules 2.2 V and see how that helps and have u tried oc'in with stock BIOS. If it still gives u problems, then u can start changin the other voltages I previously mentioned.
  17. MoeDaKilla

    New to Intel Core 2 OCing: E8400+P5Q Pro setup

    And you should check the voltage because that memory needs 2.2 V

    New to Intel Core 2 OCing: E8400+P5Q Pro setup

    Have you tried overclocking with an unmodded BIOS. I haven't use Ket's BIOS, but I suggest using the stock BIOS and seeing how it goes. What are your NB, FSB termination, and CPU PLL voltages set to?

    How much power is needed ???

    largon, you may be right, but it would be very difficult to find a 800 W PSU that has 6 PCI-E connectors and I doubt those figures you have are for three 9800 GTX's under load. Mitchman dont cheap out on your PSU, the last thing you want to do is underpower your system. Think of how long that...

    How much power is needed ???

    Considering many of the 1000 Watt PSU's on the market are in the $300 range, I'm going to recommend 2 1200 Watt ones. And they are both modular, so it will help reduce cable clutter Silverstone 1200W http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817256041 Xigmatek 1200W...

    How much power is needed ???

    I would suggest a little bit more especially if your oc'ing, but a quality 1000 W PSU will be fine. How much are you looking to spend on a PSU, and have you already bought all your parts already.

    Looking for a cheap, reliable 250 GB hard drive for my dad's PC

    Thanks guys, I think I'm gonna get the 7200.10, but I still haven't decided whether or not to spend the extra $5 and get the one with the 16mb cache.

    Looking for a cheap, reliable 250 GB hard drive for my dad's PC

    I was actually looking at that same hard drive but the one with the 16mb cache, does it really make a difference. I have one of the newer Samsung Spinpoints with a 32mb cache and its very fast, but out of my budget range for my dad's PC.

    Sorry I forgot to mention a SATA drive.

    Looking for a cheap, reliable 250 GB hard drive for my dad's PC

    Guys, I'm looking for a new hard drive from my dad's PC, because it seems to be corrupted. I have formatted the hard drive and reinstalled Windows. It worked fine for a week and started giving me problems again and I singled out the hard drive because it would get stuck when loading drivers for...
