    Ratpadz XT $25 w/Free Shipping

    Nope, crazy slick without it. Don't think I'd want it any slicker, but if it does start to slow down through use / dirt, I'll spray it with some Armor All (that worked better than Pledge on my old 3M Precise Mousing Surface) Although curiously, I think I may end up bumping up the sensitivity...

    Ratpadz XT $25 w/Free Shipping

    And it just showed up. This thing is crazy slick. Slickest pad I'd ever used before was 3M Precision Mousing Surface with an Armor-All spray. This is way slicker.

    4670k - bad core?

    Fresh OS, yes. I've tried to update the BIOS and have run into problems -- the Windows utility can either point to a local file or get the updated BIOS from the internet. I've tried both ways and it looks like it programs it successfully either way (and the version it is allegedly programming...

    4670k - bad core?

    Ran it and got 524, with 99% cpu usage in Task Manager. I don't know what that proves per se, as I guess a broken core could still be working as hard as it can even if it's 'damaged' or w/e

    4670k - bad core?

    I think one of the cores on my 4670k might be bad. I don't know if that's even possible -- it seems like a cpu would either work or not -- but this is why I think it might be the case. So, I bought a Haswell + new motherboard and installed it, everything seemed to work fine. Before...

    Can someone explain VRing to me?

    Is it something like the fsb? My i5 4670's Vring is 3400, same as the default cpu speed. Should I bump it up to match the cpu overclock?

    MSI Twin Frozr GTX 275 short review

    Use Rivatuner. It'll still only allow certain increments, but they tend to be pretty fine-grained (steps of 2-3 mhz). I run with the side panel off, so it's not a concern for me in all honesty.

    MSI Twin Frozr GTX 275 short review

    I haven't run into anything like that. The games I've played are Mass Effect, Fallout 3, L4D, and various versions of 3d mark. The only thing I've noticed is a very slight 'squealing' for brief periods in 3d mark 06, and it's pretty quiet compared to my case fans.

    did nvidia finally decide to fix their scaling or is it the card?

    It was fixed in the drivers about 6 months ago on my 8800.
