    Ive finally managed to get the card stable @905Mhz - but the memory on this card doesnt seem to want to overclock. Msi Kombustor crashes even with it set to 1020 (possible voltage increase needed??)

    Nope, ran mine at 1150mhz 24/7 with no issues, what you doing to that card :eek:

    UPS did that to me a few years ago they deliberately held a package overnight to charge handling fees for that and then i got charged £25 on a £50 item. Never used them again. Ive never had a USPS item held for charges tho.

    Thats shite i hate extra fees.

    Well I may not have a PC when I get home. My GF & I are going through what looks to be a break up & I think she's smashed my rig in.

    :(

    Oh feck :eek:

    Hopefully she will have just battered the case about and not actually had the thought of opening it up and trashing it, man thats harsh. Hope things turn out ok for you either way :toast:

    I do too! I love the girl but she just isn't someone I can live with. I'm not going to list her bad points but I've tried to the mature one, talking to her logically, honestly and she constantly treats me like a chump.

    :(

    Sorry to hear that man. Break-ups can be tough, but they are a lot easier in the long-run than living through a harmful or un-loving relationship.

    Id be even more worried if she deleted your WoW chars - seen that shit happen too many times on you tube -

    ----

    If that was me though and my GF did smash my rig (though I swear its near impossible unless you drop it out of a plane or hit it with a tank shell - these Antec 902's are invincible)

    I would take my £300 monitor and £60 keyboard and beat her around with it so hard she'd have the Qwerty layout imprinted on her face then Id get down and dirty n choke her with the braid cable from my Logitech G500, then when shes lying in a pool of blood id cross out some of the keyprints on her face to spell BITCH (something thats almost impossible to do as keysboards dont have letters that stick out.....)

    Ookkaaaayyyy. :twitch:


    Nah, I reckon you've got to stay cool. I big reaction is clearly what someone's after when they do something like that, so you want to avoid giving them the satisfaction.

    If you find she has done something like that just calmly shrug your shoulders, turn to her and say, 'Cool, now I get to upgrade my computer as well as my girlfriend.'

    Well I can gladly say that she only broke my router. So no internets for me. My rig was fine. It went differently to how I was imagining it. We talked for hours & then ended up having sex.

    :(

    I know I'm in a cancerous relationship (as does all of my friends) just every time I instigate us breaking up I always end up having sex. *Shakes fist!*

    Thanks for all the well-wishes. It's appreciated. Anyone have a ADSL2+ router they're willing to part with for next to nothing? ;)

    I'll try.

    On a happier note, my rig isn't broken. Anyone tried out the leaked 11.1a Cats with a modded 6950?

    Yup, no issues yet, they do seem faster/smoother but I have only played World of Tanks for about 20 minutes after installation so early days yet.

    They don't though if it's a common occurance then you have to face up to the fact that you might not be compatible with that person and the only option is to go your own ways, that said others can live together for years and fight like cats and dogs though couldn't be apart. It's a funny old world ain't it? lol
