    AMD Catalyst 15.11.1 Beta Driver

    Figured I'd chime in that 15.11.1 has made a huge difference for me in FO4. I have two 7950's in Crossfire. Previously I was unable to get Crossfire working without large negative scaling as others had reported. 15.11.1 seems to have given me a single card increase that was noticeable but...

    5850 cfx equals?

    I went from 3 way 5850's (stock coolers) to a single watercooled 7950@1250 / 1600. I loved the 5850 - my favorite AMD card ever I think. Even now it offers massive bang for the buck at ~90-100$. Both card(s) are paired with a 5GHz 2500k on h2o. On paper my new setup is not as fast. My 3DMark...

    Asrock z77 itx is out

    I just picked up this an ASRock Z77 ITX and a 3750k - having trouble with the cooling solution. I'd love to drop in an AXP-140, but I can't find one for sale to save my life. It's discontinued at this point, looking for a used one has turned up nothing. I can't do a closed loop liquid system...

    Catalyst 12.1 Preview

    I installed this on top (ie did not remove anything, let the installer do its business) of 11.11a (11.11c caused nothing but trouble for me), My 3x5850's now all track with the same utilization in Skyrim, and my fps has more than doubled vs a single card on previous releases. In 11.11c, it had...

    AMD Catalyst 11.11C

    Went to this on 5850 tri fire tonight. Image quality (same settings in both game and catalyst), has taken a huge nose dive. Frame rate scaling is good - huge improvement in FPS, seeing 80%+ utilization on 2 of 3 cards. Third card sits idle even though enabled in catalyst control panel, I...

    5850 CF or a single new card...

    I was just faced with the same dilemma - I just upgraded from a C2D E8400 @ 4.4 to a 2500k setup. Old rig had a single 5850. Weighing the options, I decided I needed a boost in performance but felt like my money would be wasted on this generation of cards. I picked up 2 more 5850's off ebay...

    What mixture are you using in your loop?

    Quick question. Does windshield washer fluid work ? Just because I like the color and I dont want to go through the hassel of contacting a VW dealership.

    In need of heavy duty Rheostat

    I'm actually looking for a bare rheostat, like one dial, that can handle both fan. Not a premade bay bus type deal, thanks though. 12v x 3.2A = can handle at least 38.4W. I wouldn't be opposed to buying an entire baybus and taking it apart, but I haven't found one that has individual...

    In need of heavy duty Rheostat

    I'm working on an external water cooling box, which uses two 120mm fans which draw 1.6A each. (Delta 1212SHE) I need a rheostat switch that can handle two of these at once, all the 12v rheostats I've come across for computer use aren't rated for much more than 1A. I'd need something that could...

    Very Disappointed with Thermaltake Products

    I've got the pipe-101, and find it to perform superior to all the the famed Thermalright products that I had tried before....its offered the best air cooling I've found yet. I hate 99% of what thermal take produces, compurice ftl. But this heatsink is not part of that. Outstanding product, and...
