    OC Leads to vista corruption

    Ya, it may be, but it was cheap, so it fit for what I could do at the time. In hindsight, wish I would have waited for something better

    Nope, just had a spare key laying around, didn't want to spend any funds on win 7 if I didn't have to.

    OC Leads to vista corruption

    Well, I made some progress on the system. I ran memtest several times through on the default memory settings, then when upclocked to 825, and even with the slight overclock it was stable with no errors I found that if I selected ahci it would cause a bsod at the windows loading screen. I...

    OC Leads to vista corruption

    I thought the board would be able to get me to atleast 4ghz from what I had read. So you maybe right. The settings I used just off the top of my head would have been something like 21x multi, 160 blck, 1.25v cpu, 1.81 pll, 1.52v dram, spread spec off, speedstep off, I did however leave vtt...

    OC Leads to vista corruption

    Hello, A lot to read, sorry! Not sure if I have an issue or not, but I have been overclocking my systems for a number of years now. Had good success with my old 775 system, running a e8400 and x3330 @ 4ghz and as much success with my current 1366 rig. In all those years I might have corrupted...

    Old School Water Cooling, xspc x2o 750 gets booster pump?

    Had a idea to boost my XSPC x2o 750 v4 flow/pressure with a maxi jet 900 aquarium pump I had laying around. I don't have the budget right now for a legitimate pc cooling pump, so I was hoping to maybe get a bit of a boost in performance from this "free" upgrade. My system will be raystorm block...

    Corsair H100i fans

    I have had good success with my Akasa Vipers on my ex240. Seem to push good air at respectable volume.

    AMD + PhysX?

    What would probably be the minimum NVidia card to use as PhysX processor? I got an old 8800gts 320mb laying around, would use it conjunction with incoming r9 290 if it would do some good.

    X58 Sabertooth(i7-950) - Keep or Upgrade

    I grabbed the 290 from above and will be ordering a x5650 soon. Once all old stuff is sold off, my total cost for new case, video card, cpu, a few fans, new water cooling tubing and few other odds and ends will be right about $300. Again, I would like to thank you all for the input and ideas. I...
