    Intel Atom vs.VIA Nano @ [H]

    After reading the article I am wondering if it may be possible to replace the C7 cpu on my HP2133 with the Nano? since they are pin compatible. That would be a nice upgrade.:p:D

    Dual vs Quad , Gaming, is there a difference?

    I changed from the E6700 to the Q6600 and even though I had the E6700 running at 3.5Ghz and now the Q6600 is running at 3.0Ghz I get the same performance on FEAR and other games as I did with the E6700 @ 3.5Ghz, so I would say the quads are faster from my own experience.

    Laptop CPU upgrade....

    Yeap, I agree that the fsb will hinder the performance with the 2.2ghz processor, but if you still want to try I know that you can get the service manual that walks you through taking the laptop apart from HP's website, I have the HP 9225us and I got the service manual from HP's website as it is...

    Windows Vista WGA failures today?

    Man I hope they fixed this cause I want to get Bioshock and I don't want to have this problem just because I am installing Bioshock, I am about ready to go and get my copy of the game in a few minutes at my local Fry's Electronics. :eek:

    Got my Q6600 today and its pretty hot

    That is the temps you will get with the stock intel cooler, you will need a better cooler to get lower temps, I went for the big bucks cooler (Ultra Chill TEC Cooler) and temps are about 27c idle and 40c load. Here is a link to cpu speed and temps at idle. Update:I3ender - I forgot to mention...

    7950gx2 loses SLI when overclocked, no temp readings

    Yeah I know, my 8800GTX SLI setup is much faster than the quad SLI setup, Maybe I can sell the 7950GX2's on Ebay or on the for sale section of this forum. :o :eek:

    7950gx2 loses SLI when overclocked, no temp readings

    To change the fan speed you have to use the low level settings instead of the driver level settings, below are links to pics of where to go in rivatuner.

    7950gx2 loses SLI when overclocked, no temp readings

    I have always used rivatuner to overclock my 7950GX2's and to set the fan speeds, I had them running for a whole year without any problems at all, But I would never use Ntuneas it is a piece of crap. I can't think of what could be causing the one card to drop like that, it is very strange all I...

    8800 temps

    I had the same problem till sumofatguy pointed me to the low level settings in rivatuner, I have attached links to 2 pics of were you need to go and it will be the low level system settings. The second pic shows what the next screen should look like this worked for me. Good Luck...
