    Mass Effect 1 noob texture help, please

    No, I don't think so, but I'll try verifying the game. Nothing else has worked, but maybe that will.

    Mass Effect 1 noob texture help, please

    I've searched all over the Web and nothing I've tried has helped. I recently installed the Steam version of ME1 on the PC in my sig and even though I have altered plenty of .ini file settings - which made the game look even better - and tried the original, on the planet Ferros after exiting the...

    The "Official" 3930 OC thread.

    I'm just a little guy who likes to do stupid things with electricity, but maybe those who own a 3930 or better CPU can submit their OCing accomplishments. I will readily admit that most of mine have resulted in absolute failure. But maybe some other worthy warriors will fight on and publish the...

    Recommend a good DX11 game?

    Interesting that you should mention this, since I just bought DA:O during the Steam sale and quite like it. And the older graphics look pretty good since - I'm assuming - they're using the same engine as NWN.

    This may be a problem for the records:

    Just plugged my old Samsung 24" 1200p monitor in and Firefox is back to working properly. So it must have something to do with the interaction of the comp and the Viewsonic monitor, even though the resolution was reset for it. Weird.

    Weird temp issue, please advise.

    I'm trying to find a way around this. At the first time I just had HWmonitor and ThemalRadar (in the background, and didn't realize it). Now when I just have CoreTemp running I never have an issue. It's only when I also have HWmonitor also running to show the other values that temps start to...

    This may be a problem for the records:

    Native res is 1080P, which I'm running. And I only mention the SLI part because on two other monitors at the same res it appears as I expect. It's only with this combo of monitor and cards that things are different - also these cards and my old monitor displayed pages the same as other comps do...

    some planetside 2 gameplay footage

    Hopefully this time around they'll use an engine that doesn't suck on even the most up-to-date hardware. I did enjoy the beta test, especially when I was shooting other players with a handgun via the stealth unit - sorry I can't remember its proper name - good fun though. Edit - I may have been...

    Corsair H80 High Perf. Liquid CPU Cooler Review @ [H]

    This seems to work great when I game. At non-stressed levels I run in the 40s or higher without OCing. But when I game it drops to the teens in temp. This may be a glitch that I'm working with since the cores seem to stay the same not matter what, but the CPUTIN changes dramatically.

    Weird temp issue, please advise.

    Thanks, Raja, I'll see if this works.

    This may be a problem for the records:

    I received a Viewsonic CD3225 for X-mas and it's behaving oddly on my computer - specs in the sig. When I use Firefox 8.0.1 pages do not display as they should. On some pages, chat or simply links are cut off, such as on SI.com. On CNN.com, for instance, my login info is removed from the right...

    Weird temp issue, please advise.

    It happened again, while DLing my Steam holiday purchases. I wasn't doing anything else but reading Sports Illustrated when my temps jumped to 123C for the SYSTIN and CPUTIN in HWmonitor and the ASUS monitors. But after a shutdown and restart everything was fine, in a minute or two. I guess it's...

    Question on H80 from Corsair?

    That's just stupid if you live in the northern hemisphere. The Arctic Circle is much closer and for most of us it doesn't involve an undersea cable connection.

    Recommend a good DX11 game?

    Shit, Witcher 2 is only DX9? I would have thought they'd be at 10 at least. Stupid consoles. The shots are damn impressive though. I still haven't played the original, so I guess there's no reason to skip it just for graphics - that's good news at least. I don't know if Dirt is the right fit...

    Corsair H80 High Perf. Liquid CPU Cooler Review @ [H]

    That may or may not be the reason my CPU seems to be running hotter than it should. I'll check that out later: hint, I tightened the screws while it was vertical. Let's see if it makes a difference.
