    Humongous Power Supplies and what you Really Need

    Are you talking about efficiency? If you're not - why would you have to estimate... the wattage breakdown is on the side of th PSU. If you are talking about efficiency - that only says how much power needs to be taken from the wall to achieve the stated wattage. A 550 watt PSU is a 550 watt no...

    Humongous Power Supplies and what you Really Need

    UH? bigboi86 - did you do the math before you bought you PS? How on earth is it possible to have 3 12v rails giving a total of 54amps (18 each) and be a 550 watt PS? The 12v rail alone consumes 648 watts (12x54)! It is something like older PCI-ex boards - each slot will provide 16x but not...

    Gamers in Paris enjoy 2.5Gb/s Internet.

    How is that speed useful??? SATA's theoretical max bandwidth is 300MB/s - A 2.5 Gb/s is 312.5MB/s. It's great in theroy and don't get me wrong - I WANT IT; it just seems a bit overkill no?

    Intel: Let the pink slips hit the floor

    When Otellini said that they were cutting $1B, how did you expect them to do that??? They NEED to get rid of products, projects, and divisions that don't make financial sense! They need to be streamlined to reduce waste... It is VERY easy to add unnecessary spending in a big company, and this...

    AMD Athlon 64 3000+ vs. 3200+ for overclocking

    The difference between the chips is the multiplier. 3200 is 10 and 3000 is 9. What that means is if you wanted to run your RAM at 1:1 and you can get it to 250MHz, then you would multiply that by the processors multiplier to get your CPU speed. EX. 250x9=2250 (3000+), 250x10=2500(3200+). The...

    First of all, what the hell is a HOSER - I don't think that a Canadian word, or even English for that matter??? Secondly, people don't just run a site for no reason... it's a source of income. to shut it down as a joke it stupid. Either they had problems and didn't want to admit it so they...

    HELP! GTO2 flash gone wrong!

    I don't know if it had that burnt area before I sent it to ATI because I just noticed it. I am a little scared to clean off the area becuase this may be what is needed to return the card. I am in talks with the shop I purchased it from to do something with the card... the shop owner told me...

    HELP! GTO2 flash gone wrong!

    The "vacuume soldering" I saw on google was a giant machine that was the size of a fridge! The one from circuit city makes MUCH MORE SENSE!!! There has been a possible change in plans! Over the weekend, I took a look at my card closely and I noticed a white powdery residue on the back of...

    HELP! GTO2 flash gone wrong!

    Well... It's been 2 months since I've been viewing my screen at 800x600 on an LCD (the distortion is KILLING my eyes) and I've lost almost all patience with my card - so here is my proposal! I will make a guide with your help for the noob! I have no soldering skills, but I am a patient and...

    HELP! GTO2 flash gone wrong!

    @ Dolf, I got my card back from ATI and they were not able to fix it... more over, they did not want to fix it because I removed the fan! I would like to know more about your offer to reflash my EEPROM - how do we proceed! Thanks, P.

    HELP! GTO2 flash gone wrong!

    My core is R480. I opened the X850XT PE bios in Rabit 1.7 and it said that the core was R423? I just figured that Rabit 1.7 did not yet support R480. I removed VIVO from the bios and then saved it. That is the bios I flashed. I guess my card didn't like being told that it's a 423. I'll...

    HELP! GTO2 flash gone wrong!

    Dolf, Thank you very much for your continued support through this thread. I may take you up on your flash offer if I am not able to find something here in Toronto, Canada. I have been searching the net for ways to erase the EEPROM chip without removing it from the card. I did stumble upon a...

    HELP! GTO2 flash gone wrong!

    Clixo, Thanks for your best wishes. Unfortunately, my problem is slightly different than yours... my adapter is not adapter 0 (or any other for that matter) as your card is. My card does not show up in atiflash or other programs. Glad this thread could help, and I am determined to push...

    HELP! GTO2 flash gone wrong!

    I read somewhere (a long time ago) that EEPROM chips are VERY sensitive to UV light and that is how they are erased in mass bunches. Now with UV lighting in cases now-a-days, that seems to suggest that either the light is not strong enough, or EEPROM's are not sensitive to UV light. Can anyone...

    HELP! GTO2 flash gone wrong!

    I'm using the PCI when I have a second card in and PCIe when I'm attempting to blind flash. Last night I took my card to a computer store that I buy parts from every now and then... I told them that I put a Zalman on the card so my warranty must be void (I didn't buy the card from them)...

    HELP! GTO2 flash gone wrong!

    Tried both renaming the*.bin file to 1.bin and blind flashing. Neither was able to FIND my PCIe card. Here's a theory... Remember back in the day, in DOS and WIN3.1 when you couldn't see the CD-ROM whithout special drivers that you'd have to load in autoexec.bat... is it possible that my...

    [HELP] Is my X800GT Dead?

    TRY THIS! I'm not sure what happened to your card but I can suggest one course of action. Using "atiflash" or "flashrom" will preserve SOME of the settings from a prior flash. There is a command that you can enter to stop the preservation, but I suggest something else. Use the "MODDIFED...
