    SAPPHIRE R9 280X DUAL-X AND PSU

    No i didnt format, just removed old card(7950) and then uninstall/install new drivers. It is the only thing I didn't do yet. ( I still think it is a faulty gpu cause i have a power loss when black screens happens). As about special tool do u mean driver sweeper? I didn't use it till now. Would...

    SAPPHIRE R9 280X DUAL-X AND PSU

    Yes this issue happens when I set my card to stock clocks,too.(850 or 870). I also forgot to mention that when i tried to open gpu-z (after crash with furmark and restart) throwed me a message that said that There was an opencl detection problem last time gpu-z tried to open..(this message...

    SAPPHIRE R9 280X DUAL-X AND PSU

    Yes it is a gpu problem for sure. I bought it from plaisio(ellinas??) yes, I hope they change my card, i am not sure, because my issue happens only in specific games and in the case of running gpu-z after furmark..I would be happy if they change my card and find the problem .. but i am not sure...

    SAPPHIRE R9 280X DUAL-X AND PSU

    Thanks for answers, it is not the psu, I have an xfx 750watt now 80+gold. My previous thermaltake 550w was ok,too.It isn't psu fault i am sure now. ALso gpu, cpu/mobo temps are absolutely fine. Also i dont have blue screen of death, Never. I only have these black screens in these specific...

    SAPPHIRE R9 280X DUAL-X AND PSU

    I really hope it is the problem.. It could be gpu's bios problem but i have the latest version(041)...I hope it is the psu. What psu do you suggest and how many watts? if it is the problem. I am not sure if it is the psu.. there are a lot of similar stories with black screen crashes from...

    SAPPHIRE R9 280X DUAL-X AND PSU

    Hello! I just installed this card before 2 weeks but my system seems to have a problem when GPU is on full stress. This happens only in 3 games (COD Ghosts, Red Faction Armageddon and Assasin's Creed Liberation HD) at random times when I play. At first, this was happened more often, and now that...

    Logitech Z906 and SPDIF optical

    Thanx! I hope so, so that i can use optical connection! :) Sorry to repeat myself but because i am new in 5.1 home theater systems, Is It better in anything with optical cable rather than analog? With analog, can i receive true 5.1 sound from games e.g ?(if they have 5.1 sound of course)...

    I5 750 overclocked+hd 7950+hyper 212 evo

    i disabled it..stil full rpm is 1534. anyway i use asus ai suite for cpu temp and fan rpm calibration. I have pc probe , it seems to read rpm fine. do you know any other software to calibrate or change fan's rpm? I may not need it cause with 3.8ghz and current settings temps i think are ok.(35...

    I5 750 overclocked+hd 7950+hyper 212 evo

    After half an hour of using my system, it crashed with blue screen. i now changed ram volt from 1.36(maybe problem caused by this?) to 1.5(default i think) and cpu volt from 1.23 to 1.24 i'm using my system and i wait to see if it stable or not. (the best scenario would be to keep 1.23 cpu volt...

    I5 750 overclocked+hd 7950+hyper 212 evo

    Thank you for the info! That helped me. I did the tweak voltages mentioned above and achived to o/c it to 4ghz(with 1.25 cpu voltage) and maximum degrees with prime95 79C and average about 76C. I then tried to lower the cpu voltage(still for 4ghz) to see if i would have lower temps and it...

    I5 750 overclocked+hd 7950+hyper 212 evo

    Totally agree..those cpus are little monsters! I have it almost 2 and a half years and this overclock i made wasnt really necessary..(the thing that it was for sure necessary was the cooler..i almost fried my cpu with stock cooler when temperature went up to 98C!! with prime95). but i think u...

    I5 750 overclocked+hd 7950+hyper 212 evo

    Now Settings are: 180 block X 20 for cpu, and dram frequency 1440Mhz.As a result i have 3.6Gzhz and fine temperatures. I can easily go to 4Ghz changing blck to 200, and system works fine, but with max 1500rpm in full cpu stress, temps go up to 80 C. I expected more max rpm, i dont know if it...

    I5 750 overclocked+hd 7950+hyper 212 evo

    Thank u! If 75C cpu temperature in full load is ok for my cpu, i am pretty happy with the performance. Does anyone have the same cooler? Or maybe a similar cpu, too? I just want to know if it can go more than 1500rpm because as coolermaster says maximum is at around 2000rpm(i think that 1800...

    7950 performance

    I have read some reviews, it seems to have better performance and generally have slim design, works with less rpm but it doesn't have pwm(what exactly is this?). I Can find it in almost the same price with 212 evo. I will probably use a single fan.

    7950 performance

    I tried to order 212 evo in one store here in greece with 30euro but it is out of stock..... :( Now I can find it at least 40euros, but also i can find 412s in the same price! What is the best to buy? I remind you that i want to fit in this case: CM 690 II (ver.2) (RC-692B-KKN5 / KWN5)...
