    RE 5 ps3 vs 360

    Game was waayy to short for my likes. Definitely found RE4 to be much more enjoyable.

    Beware Of Hot Chicks on Facebook

    Here's a more detailed story of it. There were also bomb threats on the school caused by him. Hits me more a little at home with me since I actually went to high school there. Needless to say none of that occurred while I was there. Thing is...

    Cheap MSI GTX 260

    Oh no, I'm not really worried about it. How did you log onto mwave to view your invoice? Is it just linked to your e-mail account? I guess I'm a little confused since my mwave email account is different that the one I used on ebay, and it is not showing up on there.

    Cheap MSI GTX 260

    Picked up an MSI card too. Was looking for a good deal and 3 years is more than enough of a warranty period for me. Got the cash back notice, now just have to wait out the 59 days. Hopefully the MIR will come in, but still a really good deal without it.

    Cant seem to get past 3.2ghz on my Q6600

    Well, just like clock work, as soon as i start talking about my OC, it now no longer likes 3.5 GHz. Don't really have time to do any more testing, but I thought I would just let you know.

    Cant seem to get past 3.2ghz on my Q6600

    Sorry, don't really know much about long term over voltage problems (then again I really haven't looked into it either). Personally, I've never experienced any with a processor I've owned (knock on wood). In a generally sense, yes overclocking and volting your CPU will eventually cause for...

    Cant seem to get past 3.2ghz on my Q6600

    I guess I should really revise my statement, since I normally run my fans at only half speed. At full speed I'm in the low to mid 30s at idle, and low 50s at full load. I also went back and looked at all my OC settings, and I'm actually running 1.63 V on the CPU. With all the newer Q6600...

    Cant seem to get past 3.2ghz on my Q6600

    Not really. Temperatures are at 40 C idle, and about mid 50s under load. I have yet to really kill a processor by over volting it too much while it's under water. If it does eventually die in the future, i'm sure I can pick up a cheap replacement for it anyways.

    Cant seem to get past 3.2ghz on my Q6600

    I got an G0 L8 at the beginning of summer. I was able to get it to 3.6 GHz on an abit IX38, but it took about 1.69 v to get there. I decided that the power and heat wasn't really worth it, so right now I have it at a rock solid 3.5 GHz with 1.61 v. Water cooling definitely required.

    HIS 4870 $193 after MIR

    definitely in on this. I was planning on getting this later down when it dropped to around $200, didn't know it would come this soon though.
