    Got my new GTX 470 and cranked up the fan...

    Oh, a sound card......I don't have any sound card. but this sounds like a good idea. http://pro-audio.musiciansfriend.com/product/M-Audio-Delta-1010-LT-PCI-Digital-Audio-Computer-Interface?sku=701376 Cool!

    Why is it pointless? What is a delta? Bear in mind, I only build a computer once every couple of years...

    Got my new GTX 470 and cranked up the fan...

    ...all the way to 90%, and guess what? The sound made no difference because my computer already sounds like a jet engine! I could not hear any difference! haha! It's keeping the temp right around 51 degrees celsius. I hope that is fine?

    EVGA gtx 470: superclocked or regular?

    well, What I was wondering was whether I should overclock it at all, considering what I want to use it for.

    EVGA gtx 470: superclocked or regular?

    I can't afford a quadro card, and most people that use Octane render do just fine with a gtx 470 or 480.

    EVGA gtx 470: superclocked or regular?

    hi all, I'm planning to get one next week, but I don't know which would be better, superclocked or regular. I don't game; I'm going to be using it as a GPU renderer. Would I be better off to get a non-overclocked card, since when there is a render going, the thing will have to be...

    GTX285 vs 5870 vs 5870+5850

    I've got a question: Ok, the Nvidia GTX 285 only has 240 processor cores, the core clock is 648MHz. The effective memory clock is 2484MHz. The HD 5870, OTOH, has 1600 "stream processing units," the core clock is 850MHz, and the effective memory clock is 4800MHz. So how is it then...

    Sapphire Readies Custom HD 5970 with 4 GB memory, HD 5870 Eyefinity6, for CeBIT

    I think we should be able to add memory on a graphics card just like we can add memory on a motherboard.

    New RAM not working, could it be the timing?

    I'm deciding I'm not going to mess around with it anymore. After readng people's comments on it on newegg a little more, it looks like maybe only one guy was able to tweak it to 5-5-5-15. There were many others who tried to tweak it to 5-5-5-15 and ended up returning it. I did...

    New RAM not working, could it be the timing?

    That sounds like a good idea. What is CAS 5? It seems stable, but I was wondering if the system bios said it is not optimized because now I set it slower?

    New RAM not working, could it be the timing?

    So will having the 6-6-6-18 timing make a huge difference? It'll still be faster than DDR2-800, right?

    New RAM not working, could it be the timing?

    Ok that worked, thanks guys. I jsut don't know why it said system voltage is not optimized, but I will keep trying to figure it out. At least I can keeo the ram and not send it back.

    New RAM not working, could it be the timing?

    Ok, I seem to have it set at 1066 too. I took your advice and set the overvoltage control at +.2v. Erocker, I can't see where I can find the base voltage. I looked carefully too. I set it at +.2v, and got a warning that the system voltage is not optimized. I re-booted it, and it...

    New RAM not working, could it be the timing?

    Forgive me, I really don;t know how to do overclock-speak yet. When the bios describes a range of +0.05V to +1.55V, under the "DDR2 overvoltage control" section, do they mean: 2.0v PLUS +0.05v to +1.55v? Are they assuming that 2.0v is the base you are starting out with?

    New RAM not working, could it be the timing?

    PS: I don't see where I set it to 1066 in the bios either. Or do I just worry about the timing and voltage?

    New RAM not working, could it be the timing?

    The link is: http://tinyurl.com/7ebx62 I've been reading people's comments about it, and they are saying that they do set it at 6-6-6-18, they all just have to do it manually. Ok, right now I'm trying to set the voltge where it should be in the bios, and it's not completley...

    New RAM not working, could it be the timing?

    Why would they set it at 6-6-6-18?

    New RAM not working, could it be the timing?

    I am upgrading my system today. My mobo is: Gigabyte GA-P35-DS4 My old RAM, which works, is DDR2 - 800 timing is: (5-5-5-15) The new RAM is: DDR2 - 1066. timing is: (6-6-6-18) It's all G. Skill, 4 GB of each. The mobo most certainly does take DDR2-1066. It's written all...

    PCI express 2.0 graphics card on a PCI express mobo

    hi, my mobo doesn;t have PCI express 2.0. It only has regular PCI express. I just bought a nifty XFX HD 4850 graphics card which is PCI express 2.0. So now do I have to upgrade the mobo, or will it work ok with it?
