    Unable to OC after GPU upgrade

    I'm not from the states. I almost cry every time I see these low prices on newegg.

    Unable to OC after GPU upgrade

    I'll see if I can scrounge up some money to get that 520 Watter. Any point in saving up for a 80+ gold unit?

    Unable to OC after GPU upgrade

    Only PSU I can afford right now is the Corsair CX500. But I would feel like throwing money out the window seeing the reviews it has.

    Unable to OC after GPU upgrade

    It restarts only when I enable host clock control, with no change to bus speed or voltage. Does this option change something in the way the board distributes power?

    Yes, also disabled all power saving features, no change.

    Unable to OC after GPU upgrade

    I recently bought a used 5870 and placed it in an old 775 system with a Q6600 and a Gigabyte P31-DS3L. Before adding the 5870 I could OC the CPU to 3 Ghz easy, now it won't even OC 1 Mhz over 2.4Ghz, enabling bus frequency override makes it restart with it disabled. When I pop in a 7750 I can...

    No, you won't lose your points, they're tied to your account not to the BOINC client.

    I'm also using one or two cores on my work notebook (i5 2430m) I'm running it while at work, just to cut down on my home's electricity bill.

    I'll keep running daily throughout the contest and after, although not as much as I am right now due to electricity being 30 cents/kWh where I live. I want to get to 25k as soon as possible (I blame my OCD).

    How much time does it take to validate results? I have about 150 results pending validation, some 4 days old, is that normal?

    I'm a little confused about the 25k points thing. My WCG member page says 90k points, and my boinc manager says 13k work done. Which stat is taken into account for the contest?

    Actually, BOINC manager's estimation was off. Looks like it takes around half an hour.I was skeptical about running the 6490m considering how slow it is compared to my HD7750 which does 2 WU in 11 mins.

    Is there any point in using my notebooks 6490m? it takes over an hour to finish a WU with it.

    I'm in. Also could someone tell me how to get my Radeon 7750 crunching?

    Your favourite game in 2012?

    My vote's for Borderlands 2, seeing FarCry 3 holding the no 1 position here has made lose faith in this forum. Game is boring and apart from being able to skin animals(which is lame) brings nothing new to the genre.

    Sony PlayStation 4 "Orbis" Kits Shipping to Developers, Powered by AMD A10 APU

    The PS3 had a custom 7800 series GPU which was slightly slower than the regular one. Remember it was an upper midrange GPU released one year before the PS3, so if they were to do that again, they should be aiming for something with performance similar to a midrange GPU released this year namely...

    ViewSonic's New VA12 Value Series Displays Deliver Style and Substance

    "Selecting a value series display doesn't mean having to settle for less". With ANY LCD monitor you have to settle one way or another: black levels, viewing angles, response time, input lag, etc. This industry needs to be taken in the woods and shot.
