Yes, without question.
gotcha. But anyways, the 8800 isn't mine. Its the TPU community's folding card, so I gotta fold 24x7 on it, which I'll do. Plus I really don't play a lot of games apart from Black Ops (preparing for the upcoming newegg wanfest), so I won't really benefit from a dedicated physx card.
Same Black Ops is mostly what I play as well, PhysX just never really gained the market share for mass adoption, so no one seems to use it, IMpo anything more than a 20-40 dollar card is a waste for a PhysX card.
Agreeded. You guys and talking about black ops! I need to get this game already. I think im getting it for xmas from my grandma but i don't have a rig to play it on right now!
Very soon you will. Its a great game. A few bugs that need to be ironed out, but a great game nonetheless.
I'm having problems with my new P55 i7-870 GENE. This morning when I first got this rig running and was installing my software the core temps looked good at idle. When I set my bios settings for stock the temps was above 40 at idle and in the 70s under load. The problem is not anything I did with the bios.
It has been a long day so I'm shutting it down for the night and will tomorrow start eliminating the likely culprits.
Yeah i've played it before and i love it! I can't wait to get the rig finished!
Good luck with the problems man. I know how it can be trying to trouble shoot problems it's a PITA.
Perhaps not enough thermal paste ?
The game is awesome, but it does need some work, like a way to group up players and join a server so you can be on the same team.
Or perhaps too much? Either way, remove, clean, reapply thermal paste and reseat the processor. Often helps.
Hey guys, i managed to find a decent deal. Let me know what you guys think. This would be for the mobo. I found this board for $80 shipped to my door step. Is this a decent deal? I could then spend about $70 bucks on ram and have half of what i originally wanted to have into the build.
EDIT: Here's what all comes with the board.
EDIT #2: Guys i think im gonna go for that asrock board for $80 shipped. After reading this review it seems very promising. The only problem it seem's like it has is that the VRM's get SUPER hot. Much hotter than any other boards out there. Can someone link me to some VRM cooler's that i could simply replace on this board without replacing the cooling unit on the whole board? I don't mind spending $80 on this board and like $20 on VRM cooling and having a great clocking board just something that doesn't look as "pretty" as the evga board.
The board is out of warranty but hey it's $80 bucks and is a full retail board. Seller say's it works great and he hasn't had any problems with it.
Get it!! it def should get your I7 920 to 4ghz
Haha...its only about 11am and I've almost hit my 24 hour average already!
Anyone else have any suggestions on the board? Im getting ready to send payment!
Do it. It seems like a great deal on a great board.
After countless nights of troubleshooting and stability testing, I finally got this thing figured out. She's running stable right now however the numbers for SMP2 -bigadv are "somewhat" disappointing. Anyways I knew it wasn't going to be on par with an OCd i7 920 running at 4+4 cores since I am using a 1.8Ghz Opteron but I think I will upgrade to something with a higher clock, something like this:
Wow they need some juice - 1.776 V ! Can you keep them cool? I see that you just restarted them so I assume thay are not up at operating temperature.
F..k yes 4 times $29 is nothing compaired to the PPD improvement going from 1.8 to 2.6 GHz.
bog uses one of those. You may want to check with him.
Bog do you think you could give me some input on the board im looking at?
bog, those are dual core?
CPU-Z displays the vcore @ 1.775v or something but while testing Core Temps shows it @ 1.1v (no more than 1.2v). @ 100% load temps reach no more than 30 deg.
Get it! I used to have that board and ran my 920 D0 to 4.2 without a hitch.
the e-bay listing:
"AMD Opteron Dual-Core 8218 2.6GHz Processor - 1000MHz HT - 128KB, 128KB L1 - 2MB L2 - Socket F (1207)"
I was going to try those out.....my board accepts dual or quad
Dunno if this is a good deal, but it sure seems like it. Might interest some folders. Galaxy 460, brand new for $110:
Yeah, after all kinds of rebates. Im not a fan of rebates at all.
And just sent the payment for my motherboard! Now after xmas it's time to order some RAM!
Very nice. You should scour the forums for memory. Lots of deals on DDR3.
