      NVIDIA Kepler GeForce GTX 680 Overclocking Review @

    6. SixFootDuo
      I posted a hot deal this morning, Dell Home, GTX 680 in stock etc in the Hot Deals section. In the message body I accidentally asked people to please "not" use the hardocp buy links instead of using them. I was dead tired, honest mistake. I see the thread is gone. I wanted to apologize. Of course that was not what I was trying to say. In fact, I got a PM from someone asking me why not to use the preferred buy link and it was only then when I put 2 + 2 together. I will try and be more careful in the future.

      When the customer sells it back to the retailer, that transfers ownership of it back to the retailer, because by law its the customers right to sell something HE BOUGHT to somebody else. That retailer then goes to sell the used product to another person etc etc

      Game developers have nothing to cry about with used game sales. They don't deserve a cut of the profits on used game sales, because they very fundamental law of transfer of ownership has already taken place between the game developer and the retail chain far, far back

      Corporate greed is going too far, Arkham City did it, but they pussy footed around the issue, saying it "Was in the consumers best interest" and other tripe like that, but Kingdom's devs have openly admitted that its corporate greed that made them lock out 30% of the game to used game purchases, and the fact they think they "Deserve" used game sales profits makes me sick to my stomach

      Perhaps you should do an article on Kingdoms of Amalur

      The DRM for this game is incredible. It requires either Steam or Origin at all times

      Also, unless you buy it new, you lose 30% of the game's content if you buy it used on consoles, and they even admit that their reason for doing so is outright greed cause they feel they "Deserve" a cut of used game sale profits

      This kind of stuff game developers is pulling is clearly going too far. This reminds me of in the 40's with car companies trying to get used car dealerships shut down because they didn't get a cut of used car sales, yet they fail to understand how goods and services work

      When a game company sells a game to a retailer, that retailer now owns it, he then sells it to a customer, the customer now owns it

      Where did those two Galaxy GTX 580's end up? I could use one to replace this GTX 260. :)

      Yeah, this is my workbox, so all content creation and/or editing gets done on this box. Bleeding edge OCs are not what this machine is about and since I am not a benchmark monkey, a few hundred MHz don't really make a difference. But this one flies and never BSODs! :)

      Hey Kyle, I was just looking at the 2500K/2600K review thread and I saw you finally built a new rig. Congrats, hope you like it. What really caught my eye was your 2600K and the overclock on it, only 4.5GHz. Most people here would call that oft, but I call it ractical. You would never know the difference between 5 GHz or 4.5 GHz, and it's easier on your ears too (LOL why am I explaining this to you of all people :p).

      Anyway, thanks for the ardware reviews and take care.

      Hi Kyle Great forums you got there and excellent reviews. I just want to ask you if you can do 1 comparison. This is a topic that has gone all over the professional and amateur workstation world. The Quadro vs Geforce in a workstation shoot out in CAD programs.The Quadro 4000 almost twice as much as the Gtx 580 3Gb version but has half the Vram and half the cores. 580 has double the rendering precision. But out there, there's still the ones that share the belief because its Quadro and more expensive its better. Previous generations nvidia could get away with just adding more Vram to the workstation cards but not anymore. The Cards sport up to 3Gb ram so that limitation has been wiped away. It will truly be appreciated if you can put the 580 3gb version up against any or all the Quadro cards in a CAD. THX and enjoy your day

      Maybe I just missed them, but when or were are the questions to AMD being answered? I've emailed them and never heard back about the Clock Interrupt Error.

      No, it means, "Post only once in this thread and tell us why you need a Corsair SSD in your rig." Sorry I was not clear the first time.

      Hi Kyle,

      I am a recent registrant to HF. As I have less than 50 posts, I can't reply to a FS/FT post. Having carefully read the "must read prior to posting FS," I tried to post my first thread and it says I can't post because I don't have 50 posts. Obviously I'm missing something here. Thanks for filling me in when you get a chance.

      You now have access to Hot Deals, which I guess is what you needed right? :)

      Just a "for your information" I can nolonger access the web site forums on any of my rigs that have kaspersky installed. as it says that a threat has been detected .

      "object is infected by HEUR:Trojan.Script.Iframer

      Not sure if it's just a false positive or not. it might be just kaspersky being over sensitive to some script on the page . not sure . just letting you know. right now I'm on a machine that has just mcafee.
