    Xeon Owners Club

    I tried to go for a stable 5.0 buts the odds were against me. I might try again when i get really bored and want my brain to hurt more. One of the benefits i guess from the X58 is you need a masters in rocket science to get over 5ghz. I only had the voltage set at .3 and noticed that under...

    EVGA X58 and an i7 920 @3.7Ghz ...for now.

    I think i was reading somewhere that if you ship them the board they will mod it for free.

    AMD Cards Don't Last As Long as Nvidia Cards. AMD Cards Die From Overheating.

    I do not believe this to be true. I have always monitored temps and what not, so my cards always last. I know my 800xl works, and my friend still has a 9800xt. No matter what card you have if let dust build up and do things you shouldn't you will have problems.

    Keep old I7 920 @ 4.2 GHz or go Skylake/Haswell-E?

    I am still waiting for my I7 to die. I bought it when it first came out. Still waiting for it to die. I have had it overclocked from day one...CO stepping also first ones. With a decent video card and SSD....i can not justify spending more money for newer CPU and board. I have helped a few...

    DVI-D to DVI-I adapter

    I have not looked into those higher resolution monitors in a long time, but the last time i looked they needed a video card of certain requirements. I think you will need a different monitor. I have not looked into this, again this was last year when i looking to get one of that brand Yamaksi...

    New hardware required

    AT&T No Longer Offering Broadband In Most Areas

    I actually am mapping fiber in Chicago, and surrounding communities for ATT. I work at communications company and ATT is building fiber everywhere. I think i read somewhere last week they had a 4 billion quarter 4 loss, attributed to the building new networks.

    MSI R9 290 temps ?

    1. I would be concerned about the temps..... i think re-apply the thermal paste would be best. 2. Is your computer sitting on a desk? If on the floor or desk i would have it raised off the ground or desk somehow. Like 4 blocks on all four bottom corners. Maybe try without the side on, or try...

    How did my 980x's default speed change into just 2.66ghz instead of 3.33ghz?

    I would start from scratch, dismantle the whole pc out of the case. Put everything back together outside the case, see if the problem is still there. Just to be sure.

    I melted my CPU power connector...

    I say nice job with the fix. Seeing how you repaired that, i do not think you will have a problem putting another connector on the power supply. :clap:

    [FF][US] Xfx 8600gt 256mb

    I think they are surface mounted caps. And from my experience they are tricky to replace. They are baked on not soldered on. I am pretty sure with a good iron and now how a novice solderer can get it done.
