    NVIDIA Releases GeForce 344.75 WHQL Game Ready Driver

    "this driver introduces multi-frame sampled anti-aliasing (MFAA), which can be enabled across GeForce GTX 600, GTX 700, and GTX 900 series graphics cards." This is not true, MFAA is only available on GTX 9xx series cards.

    Intel Core "Haswell" Refresh CPUs Launch Date Revealed

    It's not always about games. Haswell spanks X58, simples :P

    Intel Haswell i5-4670K vs. i7-4770K Comparison

    Good comparison overall but as a gamer, I would like to see a much larger list of games comparisons. However, glad you went for 1080p comparisons and not 1024x768 just because it was a CPU comparison.

    ASUS Announces Xonar Essence STU External Sound Card and Headphones Amplifier

    What are the actual differences between this and the Essence One? I have the STX and always wanted the One but was put off by the price and apparently dodgy driver support. I would however jump at getting rid of the dirty molex connection to the STX, so this would be ideal.

    ASUS Announces ROG Xonar Phoebus Solo Sound Card

    Yeah, it's 6pin PCI-E though so not too bad.

    Safe overclock level?

    Stress test it properly with IBT and Prime and see what your temps are then...

    Windows rebooting on logo after new motherboard/cpu

    Might be because you have it in the wrong SATA model also. If your old install was done in IDE and the new board is set to AHCI...

    psu upgrade? or mobo?

    Only the new AXxxxi series. But I totally agree. Best to have a test PSU, and memory and graphics card if possible. An old hard drive with a copy of Windows on doesn't hurt either.

    gigabyte gtx 660 ti oc or radeon 7950 oc

    Make sure you update the BIOS before swapping out the CPU.

    psu upgrade? or mobo?

    Hi, I think your PSU is fine, is there any chance you can test the setup without the SSD RAID for a while to see if you can replicate the issue? One of them may have broken.

    i7-k and i5-k "Turbo Multiplier"?

    Have you tried Offset Voltage rather than manual voltage? You shouldn't have to have it an Auto.

    i7-k and i5-k "Turbo Multiplier"?

    Whether a Gigabyte or an Asus board, all unlocked Sandy and Ivy Bridge overclock through their turbo, no matter how you set it in the BIOS. Only difference is if you do it by per core you can select values (e.g. 45 for 1 core load, 42 for 4 core load etc). If your voltage isn't dropping down...

    H100i Fan RPM question

    Yeah when the program stops responding its a sign of instability. Temps seem fine and I don't think lowering the fans would affect it all that much.

    I7 930 on P6X58D-E

    IBT and Prime stable? ;)

    I7 930 on P6X58D-E

    Yeah the C0's, the D0 stepping was a massive improvement.

    I7 930 on P6X58D-E

    Agreed, especially the 930s and the 950s, they were never quite as cool as the 920 D0.

    H100i Fan RPM question

    Highly doubt it, although it will be terribly loud and unnecessary. You could have it way lower than that and still have your temps in check if its a half decent OC.

    I7 930 on P6X58D-E

    If you look at the XMP profile under the SPD tab in the screenshots it's shows his memory has a built in profile of 800MHz = 1600MHz DDR. I would go for the 200x20. Just my thoughts but your choice, lower BCLK could be more stable!

    I7 930 on P6X58D-E

    Sorry deleted post as I realised the HyperX was more than likely from his own build and not the one in question.

    Need help with new build!

    Any reason for avoiding Asus boards? In my experience they are better built and more stable than MSI and ASRock.
  23. T

    I7 930 on P6X58D-E

    Good idea but with a BCLK of 182 you will struggle to have you're memory running at rates speeds because the memory multipliers won't play nicely like they do with 133, 160 and 200. Unless you fancy OCing that too.

    I5 3570k E1 and Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H

    Agreed, I'd rather have a conservative overclock, no need to encounter unnecessary issues.

    Need help with new build!

    3570K (will OC in future) Asus P8Z77-V (will SLI in future) Corsair Vengeance 2x 4GB (buy another pack to upgrade to 16GB in future) GTX 660Ti/670 Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 1/2TB
