I got caught up playing left4dead, I'll try tomorrow I promise >_>
PhII 955 BE :drool:
lol no problem hopefully it works i want you to break 10000 !
lol i know!
new car for me tommorrow. schweeetz
i get to sell my pofs!@#$%^&* 1988 toyota corolla that has 302,000 miles on its original motor
its about FT the bank got off there bailed out butts and let me get a car.
DO i hear a Drifting Car?
what are you getting?
dunno, untill today, My credit was declined at this time...
time to shop around again
probably a 4 door so i can lug my gear for work and play around, lanparties, IT service calls, whatever....
do you have a budget
what you need it for
i would keep the other car if you can
my daily driver is a 2003 Taco
and my "WORK IN PROGRESS" is my baby a 1966 Mustang Coupe its a the body shop and idk when it will be back
the corolla is dyin, the sound alone tells the tale, you can almost hear each rod and valve as the loosely open and close and rattle kinda like a box of rocks. 302,000 miles and running, but i didnt say running good. i really dont know why it does still run....
im goin to bed, night
Here you go Assassin...4 cores unlocked...
what kind of temps are you getting when you have 4 cores vs 3 cores ?
Wow, you get like 3000 more than me on the CPU score
Its that extra core
go for it Shadow PUSH IT TO THE LIMITS!
It runs great without any problems...temps for idle are 30-33 degs and load is around 47-49 degs max. This is under stress testing with prime and not gaming. Ambient temps are around 30 degs.
I was pretty surprised at the scores myself...
you going to go higher?
Not going any higher...core no. 2 is the weak one which was locked, so no chance of it going higher than that....prime will run for a hour or so at this overclock but will eventually give an error on this core. For gaming I have not found an issue yet....but have backtracked to 3.2Ghz at 1.325 v and now the temps are 27 idle and max 40 load. Am more comfortable with this. Get a score of around 10k in 3dmvantage.
BTW just started Left4dead....whats the idea of the game man...are you just supposed to go on shooting zombies and get to the safe zones??? or is there something I am missing??
i think thats it
i only played the first level
i have to buy the whole game to play on steam
I just thought of a custom title idea, "Budget Enthusiast" since I upgrade my stuff almost every month but I haven't spent more than 190$ on anything
You think your a Budget, Look at my machine, Id drop a 3850 in but id have to rack the CPU speed to like 2.4 to utilize it properly.
Well got to take a crack at it again today. Looks like I will not be seeing 4ghz I just can't even make it into windows at anything over 1.5v, which makes me sad. 1.456v seems to be the highest stable volts I can use, 1.472v is the highest I can get into windows with. I got off a validation at 3,829mhz, but that wasn't stable. I backed it down and got it stable now.
3,718mhz, 1.456v, 201fsb, mem timings 5-5-5-18 @ 1072 (suppose to be 7-7-7-24 @ 1066) , and NB at 2412. Guess it's good enough for now.
We'll see when my Biostar shows up, would be nice to unlock the 4th core since I got a 0904.
Yes, you try to make it through each chapter until you get to the safe room.
Try it on Expert
speaking of titles i was thinking of changing mine but to what...
I can OC anything! even a toaster !
anyone suggest a small case for my current board
putting the asus in this case
i want to be able to take it places but also look good not expensive
i found this one GMC Corona
still trying to find the erratum on phenom II+4 dimms filled seems to o nothing as far as hampering oc's
I had the same temps with my 720 with 4 core or 3.
As for gaming I was able to game for hours at 3.8ghz on 4 cores, I miss my old 720
