    ZOTAC Announces GeForce GTX 560 SE

    I'd want to see the performance VS a 460SE. The 560SE has better clocks, but the 460SE has a wider memory interface. I'd be willing to bet there is very little difference between the two. If this thing is more then 140 bucks, its too much.

    Enermax Officially Launches DreamBass Genie

    I have two of these roaming around in my shop. They got left with computers that either we never paid for or brought in for recycling. I used one for alittle bit on a bench unit, but it always sounded off to me. Like it made everythings tone flat. If you played the same sound at the same time on...

    Shuttle's Z77-based XPC Z77R5 Pictured

    I would think you probably could get away with a 570, but you'd be VERY close to the top of that PSU. OCing would be out of the question. I'd say stop at the 560Ti. Then you're not running that PSU full bore, and you might be able to enjoy that 80+ bronze efficency.

    GIGABYTE Claims World No. 1 Spot for Motherboard Durability

    I've been running Gigabyte almost exclusively since 2001, and I've never had a bad board from them. I've had five of them over that time period, and three are still in service. My EP45-DS4L has my crap Q8200 at 3.34ghz right now, and I'm sure if I had better ram, it would go higher. Gotta...

    GK104 PCB Pictured in Full

    I think you've nailed it. The power connectors will be stacked because the fan is big.

    GK104 PCB Pictured in Full

    Thats exactly why I'm jumping ship. Had a 4850 for years now, and I'm just sick of every driver update either messing up my fan profiles or oc. I'm tired of it. I mean, its been 4 years and they STILL haven't fixed the corrupted mouse on dual monitors bug. Its friggan retarded. I just ordered...

    GK104 PCB Pictured in Full

    Yeah, but thats forced through firmware, and Sony admits its not compliant. Eh, Sony lost me forever when they took my Linux away. Pawned that mofo the day it happened. I'm changing my mind again. Its for the TEC cooler this thing is gonna need to keep cool.

    No, its definately 2 slots. The ASUS version will likely be 3, but the ref will be 2.

    GK104 PCB Pictured in Full

    Thats just cold blooded bro. None of us know what it is, we're all speculating. It could power an external popcorn popper for all we know. But not for DTS-HD. It required bitstream, not PCM stream.

    GK104 PCB Pictured in Full

    I'm talking about true bitstreaming audio here. DTS-HD and Dolby plus and such. The 480/470/465 can not do that without an audio pass through. Its not built into the GF100 die. Yes, it has an audio device, but to get full support, it needs to be hooked to an external sound card. So...

    GK104 PCB Pictured in Full

    The GTX480/470 and 465 do not have HDMI audio processors. Look it up. The 460 does. I do admit that this likely is what its for aswell. I didn't think of that.

    GK104 PCB Pictured in Full

    Sadly, my job hasn't given my any 500 series cards to play with yet, so it seems my point may be moot. We refurb systems and the biggest card I've seen so far is the 480. HOWEVER, my gut still tells me not a fan header :D Edit: Just noticed that all those cards have the solder points for...

    GK104 PCB Pictured in Full

    They have had Digital Audio Passthroughs on nearly every card I've ever seen from Nvidia. I know the GTX480 has one. Its so you can use your sound cards digital out with your HDMI connection to your TV.

    GK104 PCB Pictured in Full

    Eh, I'd be inclined to agree, but once again, there is what appears to me a JP under that top connector. I've seen it on ALOT of Nvidia cards. I do belive its for Audio Passthrough, just incase you want to use your sound cards digital out instead of Nvidia's onboard. However, we're all just...

    GK104 PCB Pictured in Full

    Theres only one 4 pin PWM fan port at the end of the board. The 2 pin at the top has a JP under it, designating it as some sort of jumper. Likely not a fan port. Sorry.

    So AMD went for a minor overall increase in speed but with great efficency, and it looks like NVIDIA is going balls out performance if the PCB needs that much juice.

    Nvidia 8400m GS VBIOS Issue

    If he is suffering from what almost every other G86 GPU owner is suffering from, it is most likely not a software issue. The G86 core has a known issue where it will heat up and pull away from its board. The simple way to fix it is what I posted earlier, heat gunning it. You can also try...
