    @ 1.4V you are looking at 4.2 or 4.3 gig I would think, her 760 is running 4.8 at 1.48V, not sure if there is a lotta difference in heat terms between the 2.

    I am going to get a 760K and a decent x88 board, I built hers for her and was really impressed with it, I even downloaded World of Tanks and played it on her machine with my 7870 and was getting higher FPS than I am on my 930 at 4.3gig.

    So far Batman AC, Killing Floor, CSGO, WoW, BF3 and BF4 Beta have been silky smooth.
    Oh and all I've played the last 24 hours is shadow warrior, which is also playing rather well.
    Path of Exile has been a pain in the ass, because of server lag though :(

    I've also noticed this system is A LOT more stable than my old rig for some reason.

    Best I can get without screwing with the base clock is 4.2Ghz on 1.425v using 100 x 42 multiplier. Came out at 48 degrees which seems reasonable.

    Not bad, have you tried upping the base clock a little?

    got my next build planned, should be beastly.

    all I got to do is save up a few hundred quid and sell this rig.

    should be something like

    3770k
    asus maximus v formula
    tridents X
    R9 290x
    corsair AX 1200

    then im getting into the whole extreme cooling and learning that!

    (Edit WTF happened to ram prices! a month or two ago I could got dual channel tridents for around £100 now theyre £170, close to quad prices!)

    Yeah it sucks, still enjoying my Beast RAM I scored for £90 years ago.
    Also feels good not to be poor this month. I might actually make it to payday in 8 days with a positive number in the account.
    This clubhouse needs resurrecting.

    I got a kit of these sat on my desk, although I got them off fleabay in a "lucky" auction for 72 quid, can't get the best out of them though in my current rig but am going to be doing a new build next month so may slot them in then :D

    Ebay used to be great, back before I worked in this grammar school and started work in the previous secondary, I used to buy collectors stuff and sell it on on Ebay. I spent about £3000 and made about £400 profit after it all sold off. The effort wasn't really worth the return, but it as all good fun until Ebay became a ripoff merchant.

    I don't use Ebay, and I don't use PayPal.

    When I have a spare few minutes, I will often do a search of computer components where the auctions are due to end within an hour, then sift through to see if there is anything interesting, note the watchers and if it's decent and still listed at 99 pence with few watchers I may have a play :D

    Boy did I get played hard. Awesome looking chick from Oxfam on the street, walks into my path and stops me from walking by and starts banging off some scripted shit. Couldnt get rid of her without giving her my number, it might have been worth it if I got hers -_-

    Should have just groped her then claimed it was parkinsons disease that made your arm spaz out and run off before the cops get there.

    She will remember you the next time she sees you, though weather or not on good terms is yet to be determined.

    Ya know its strange but sometimes you can let your hand flop around a strangers face before they step away and look at you awkwardly before crossing the street and possibly calling the police Or their boyfriend who coincidentally turns out to be vin diesel.

    People are just so surprised that they find themselves stuck on the spot as the recipient of a flipfloppity hand across their face.

    Im not saying slap them but just gently....caress...

    Ugh.... I cant stop wanting to upgrade my Giga Switch Its a cheap TP-Link one for £13 off amazon and its worked flawlessly - Even better then a £27 netgear switch i returned to Ebuyer last week cuz it was faulty.

    Switch works, I have no problems with it but yet i really want to upgrade it because its is cheap. Ive heard good things about HP Procurve switches but they dont seem to be well known with the commercial market but those that have had one or still have one cant sing its praises enough.

    though thats £50 and not £13 and i cant really justify the cost because my network doesn't even see that much heavy usage.


    but i still cant get over it.

    Actually he's half right. Do some stupid shit to a person, and instead of running or doing crazy stuff, half the time they just stand there... stunned.
