    Is this 5850 exceptional?

    This is probably the best OC I've seen on a graphics card using the reference cooler (although it loses stability under full load at >~1015Mhz or over 1.3v, possibly due to restrictions in the amount of power it can draw from two 6-pin sockets and the motherboard). I advised a friend to get one...

    Guess at likely CPU temps

    I recently built a budget PC for a friend which had a phenom X2 550 BE in it, cooled by a scythe mugen 2. I unlocked the extra 2 cores and now have it running as a quad @ 1.43v/3.6Ghz - The issue is that the CPU temperature reading doesn't work in any programs I've tried when the extra cores are...

    EVGA's Dual Xeon Motherboard

    I had a thread on one of these a while back, however EVGA's jumped in and will be offering a dual-socket board capable of supporting two of the new 6-core westmere chips. http://www.guru3d.com/fullimage.php?image=21769 http://www.guru3d.com/imageview.php?image=21770...

    5850 - Overclocking limited by power consumption?

    I've run into a rather large and solid wall with my 5850 benching - it does 1008Mhz @ 1.3v, but if I push the clock speed any higher it starts to create errors (and locks up completely above 1015Mhz in 3dmark06), however if I push up the voltage at all, it fails completely at exactly the same...

    Budget CPU for overclocking?

    Okay, I've been challenged by a family friend to build their son a new PC for christmas - the parts budget is £500 (I'm not taking a cut of money, the deal is that I will have all the coke, pizza and beer I like the day I build it :D ) So anyway, he wants to get into overclocking (which I'll...

    Disappointing Corsair H50 Performance

    Hi there, I built a new i5 rig a couple of weeks ago, decided to get a corsair H50 into it as I'd heard the cooling was pretty decent and I didn't fancy having a cooler the size of mars crammed into my case (NZXT Lexa Blackline - not that roomy inside plus I have a non-modular power supply, so...
