    Soundcard Change - Feedback/Input welcome!!

    Damn and I thought we were ripped off here in australia. I got mine for $219 from pccasegear and love it. Was worth the extra for me as I had an issue with my x-fi and my ssd where the sound card would not start on boot up and i would have to reinstall the creative drivers. I tried several...

    Soundcard Change - Feedback/Input welcome!!

    +1 I recently upgraded from an X-Fi fatality pci-e to the Phoebus and could not be happier with the change. I also run it through a set of z-5500d and they sound so much better compared to the x-fi. The problems with BF3 and punkbuster have been fixed with the 7.0.1.20 drivers which are the...

    experience with Samsung SyncMaster 305T LCD Monitor

    Yep I have as I have had one for approx 4 years. I love it. The screen is huge (as one would expect). I have not had any problems with mine at all. There is a bit of ghosting in fast moving scenes. But not enough that it bothers me at all, I actually have to stop playing the game and try to look...

    MSI Calls Bluff on Gigabyte's PCIe Gen 3 Ready Claim

    And just because someone posts a counter claim on a forum doesn't mean that it is to be believed as well. All I am saying is that they have reported (however truthfully) that the UD4 isn't compliant and you came on and started talking about the UD7 which after reading what was in the story...

    MSI Calls Bluff on Gigabyte's PCIe Gen 3 Ready Claim

    Um no they didn't the pics posted with this story clearly shows that cpu-z reports that they used the P67A-UD4-B3 board which GB claim has dude. Not the P67A-UD7-B3.

    No crossfire for Split/Second.

    If that was aimed at me then I apologise unreservedly to ATI for the "bashing" that I gave them, after going back and re-reading my post I realise that it may look that way. What I meant was that for Nvidia users out there that there was a program out there that was not written by Nvidia that...

    No crossfire for Split/Second.

    If it is a console port it might be limited to 30fps in game no matter what. I have had a few games like that that were console ports. Some games needed you to use their inbuilt console to raise the fps cap or edit ini files etc to do the same. But as others had said it is a new game so...

    okay heard all this great stuff about Windows 7 and I'm not impressed

    I'd have to agree with you for the most part trt740. Some of the newer features are nice and all but not much different to Vista. I ran Vista Ult x64 for about 2 years and did not have many problems with it, well certainly not anymore than I had with XP. So far touch wood Win7x64 Pro seems to...

    Or one vista user who never used xp and assumes it was rubbish because he never had a computer with xp on it.

    The Intel Core i7 Overclockers Club

    Well just an update. I am now down to 1.2v set in the bios and cpu-z shows 1.192 v and I primed for more than 4hrs yesterday (ver 25.11) and it passed no problems. I have got my temps down from high 60's, to where none of the cores goes above 60 now. I am still using just the multi to o/c I as...

    What do you think of my new build?

    That was exactly what I did when i overclocked it. Set it to 1.3 volts and then changes the multi on mine (gotta love the extreme i7's) from the stock 25 to 30 to give me 4ghz. Since then I have been slowly reducing the volts till it gets unstable. But atm it is at 1.2volts in the bios which...

    What do you think of my new build?

    Very clean install there craigleberry, I wish I could hide the cables in my case like that, but alas not to be with the tj-07, and all the fans etc I have in there. So what temps are you getting under the xiggy, and what voltage do you use @ stock speeds. My 975 wanted 1.13v for the 3.33ghz...

    The Intel Core i7 Overclockers Club

    That you do for sure , I wasn't sure how much voltage it would require to get to 4ghz so i started at 1.3v and am slowly working my way back. My older qx9650 needed more than 1.4v to hit 4ghz so I am not complaining. And as you said if ya can afford it why not. Your 920 is so far the best o/cing...
