    Resizing (or enveloping) a small resolution on a large monitor?

    Is this possible? I have a 1600x900 monitor and unless I wanted to completely replace some components and shift things around I can only connect my Xbox 360 using VGA. The closest compatible resolution is 1440x900, but it really stretches the image out, making things rather blurry. Is...

    SmartFan not working properly, please help!

    I've been trying to lower my PC's fan speeds recently, because they're quite loud even on idle. None of my hardware has ever gotten anywhere near too warm, so I've been trying to configure SmartFan to lower my PC's fan speed while under the desired temps. I've followed a few guides, but I...

    My (terrible) Experience with Skyrim so far

    I forgot to change my System Specs, my bad. I've recently (a few months ago) upgraded to a 955 BE. Are those temps okay? I haven't OC'd it or anything.

    My (terrible) Experience with Skyrim so far

    So yesterday I bought Skyrim, and let it download over night, after seeing it at a friend's place on the 360. It looked pretty good on the xbox, constant fps, no problems. My roommate with a slightly worse PC was running it fine with a constant 45-55 fps, on ultra except without AA. :D So...

    Why does my PC freeze after GPU OC?

    I had a hunch it might be the PSU... thanks.

    Why does my PC freeze after GPU OC?

    Hmmm... I'm pretty sure I disabled "cool'n'quiet" in my BIOS settings... however the chip hasn't overheated as far as I know (running <40 degrees most of the time). EDIT: I'm off to bed. I'll check on the thread in the morning.

    Why does my PC freeze after GPU OC?

    Yes, if you mean before OC, the PC was running flawlessly. Just a quick note: I just checked CPU-z and it reports my voltage to be 1.43!!! :confused: I'm pretty sure the stock voltage is 1.35... if that's the case then could that be the issue?

    Why does my PC freeze after GPU OC?

    Well I tried just OC'ing the 5850 when I first got the new CPU (stock clocks).

    Why does my PC freeze after GPU OC?

    I have a PowerColor 5850, and every time I change any of the OC settings in AMD Overdrive it freezes eventually. By freeze I mean that the computer basically becomes and image of what I was doing; no BSOD, no black screen, just freezing. Anyone know what's happening? P.S. I have...

    PC always freezes after any OC

    Okay now I'm a bit confused, this is contradicting the previous guy's instruction... :confused:

    Thanks, trying that out now.

    PC always freezes after any OC

    Well I'll start off by saying that I've never touched the voltage on this CPU. When I've tried to OC it I usually start with the multiplier, and move to bus speed. I've also tried to use my BIOS' "Smart O.C." function, which raises everything in small increments (except voltage). I haven't...

    PC always freezes after any OC

    At first I tried BIOS as usual, but after that failed I tried in windows just to check.

    PC always freezes after any OC

    Whenever I OC my GPU or (especially) my CPU, my PC freezes one way or another. It doesn't get a BSOD, it doesn't go to a black screen, it just literally freezes, and acts like a static image of what I was doing. The only way to restart is with a hard shutdown. What could be failing...

    Bitcoins!

    I don't. I still believe the price will get to $50 soon. :toast:

    Bitcoins!

    C4C is how I learned about bitcoins. They pretty much made it easy to mine bitcoins (without telling the worker that they were really just mining bitcoins) and took/take I think about 90% of profits.

    Bitcoins!

    Yeah, makes me glad I never made an MtGox account :cool:

    Bitcoins!

    It would have been better a week ago when it was $10, but I think the price will rise eventually, so you will probably profit.

    I believe the only file that matters is wallet.dat.

    Can't remove giant Cooler Master CPU fan/heatsink!!!

    Checked the mobo manual, found out where to put them, and ta-dah! PC's working flawlessly! Thank you all very much for such great help! :D

    Can't remove giant Cooler Master CPU fan/heatsink!!!

    I think it s the front bus connectors... I found these unplugged wires: HDD LED RESET SW POWER SW Where do these go? They're all 2x1 and I don't see any 2x1 slots.

    Can't remove giant Cooler Master CPU fan/heatsink!!!

    Bad news. Very bad. I got the CPU in and everything, reinstalled the cooler, and stuck the mobo back in. I then plugged in (what I think are) the correct wires to the mobo and screwed it in. Hooked everything back up, plugged it in, turned the psu on, and hit the power button...
