    Big drop in Nvidia prices might be right around the corner

    I get a 3dMark2011 score of 3900ish at 1920x1080 with everything on with 2 of those EVGAs in SLI. But, having played in nVidia surround with 3 monitors, I don't notice slowdowns or hiccups.

    Prime95 vs Real Life stability?

    Howdy all, Ok, well, with my overclock I'm able to get Prime to run stable for about 30 mins before it BSODs. However, the last two days of gaming I have had 0 problems (though on BF3 it seems to C2D after a bit when I'm flying but not BSOD). It seems stable to me...but long term, is...

    Air Filter for Fans?

    Howdy all, Well, got a bit of a problem. Using a Corsair H50 with two 120mm fans for push pull. I am pulling air from outside the case into the interior. Unfortunately, the radiator gets clogged up something fierce. I tried putting a coffee filter on the outside of case in front of the fan...

    Which sub $200 GTX 5x0 card has the best stock cooling for Physx?

    Hmmm, anything in a one slot configuration? I already have two SLI cards, I pretty much only have space for one more card in the last PCI-E slot.

    i7 960 OC - need some help please

    So if RAM multi is 8, Uncore should be 16 and QPO should be 36? It seems to be at that right now...I think. Also, I noticed other odd behavior...the screen connected to my second 570 flickers, but I'm not OCing the graphics cards...

    i7 960 OC - need some help please

    Also, should I disable HT? Is it causing heat issues, is it worth it to have it on? Thanks.

    i7 960 OC - need some help please

    In the BIOS I set CPU vcore to 1.375 and mem to 1.4 (those GSkills are supposedly low voltage sticks). Maybe the A5 still needs to cure? I mean it did say 200 hours...but I think it was good because idle is usually around 35-38 (then again, that's with a CPU vcore of .9 IAW CPU Z). Cooler is...

    Just got a i7 960, which mem should I pair it with?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, the multiplier for the 960 is locked, correct? So, if I set bclk to 200mhz, and the the cpu multipler stays at 20, and I bump up the mem multiplier to 8, then I get 4ghz on the CPU and 1600mhz for the memory? But the 960 can do more than 4.0, correct? It's one of reasons...

    Just got a i7 960, which mem should I pair it with?

    Howdy all, Well, went to MC and got the i7 960 for 189 (figured might as well) to replace my i7 920. I jumped the gun on memory (I'm looking for 16 GBs because I sometimes run two VMs). Which set best matches the i7 960? G.Skill 1066 G.Skill 1600 low voltage Too me, a $20 difference...
