    new cooler, these temps seem high?

    I dont know what a shroud is, but does your antec's fan connect to the pump? when i had it (it was broken anyway) the fan would connect to the pump and pump to CPU fan 1. I had it at full speed in bios (but i dont know if it had direct control to fan) and it only gave me 1400 rpm all the time...

    new cooler, these temps seem high?

    well thanks for the nightmares... i read that it might need washers for the backplate but when i was installing it I figured that the thumbscrew and the standoffs would fix the looseness of the backplate. After it was done the pump seemed stable to me. mounting system is much easier than the...

    new cooler, these temps seem high?

    http://i.imgur.com/um4mxvP.png?1 I feel i should be getting better temps, considering how low the voltage is. its a Corsair H60 (newer edition) and i have it set up as exhaust in rear of the case. Its also in pull from the rad, so the rad is facing the CPU. I figure since i have one intake and...

    Far Cry 3 unplayable

    i get almost 60fps now without lowering settings. as a personal rule of mine i dont blame the hardware unless more than one game is acting up. sure ive had cards in the past that failed when playing GTA4, Crysis and Far Cry 2, but these games generally ran slow. the remedy was high voltage or...

    Far Cry 3 unplayable

    i get this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5rKZAqhdpA the game isnt that demanding, if it were it would be slow in gameplay. lots of people are having that problem this leads me to belive its not the card. lowering clock might be a remedy but its not the cause.

    Far Cry 3 unplayable

    to avoid confusion i updated my sig. why would one game mess up like this but all else is find? a bit presumptuous to blame the GPU when software could be at fault? Far Cry 3 fps isnt dropping and gameplay is smooth, but textures are acting up. I get the feeling MSI afterburner might be the...

    Far Cry 3 unplayable

    the temps are fine, doesnt go above 68c. every game is fine except far cry3. The card came OC'd, but far cry 3 doesnt seem that demanding to me compared to other games like batman AC. How come no one else has this problem? I used to get it with far cry 2 as well, albeit a lot less frequently and...

    Far Cry 3 unplayable

    The artifacts big and small make this game unplayable. i can get a good 8 minutes out of it before i have to restart the whole game. Walls of green texture encapsulate me at random points in the game. im on 314.22 driver so maybe updating will fix it?

    Is there a virus that can disable a laptop cd/dvd drive?

    there is nothing to be done? one day its working one day its not? how would a banal virus infection affect usb and cd at the same time, when all it does is infect HDD?
