If you have a link that would be nice. :D
And sorry for the image downtime, I hadn't realised it went down. I've reuploaded them, hopefully this host won't explode.
And wow, this thread has over 100,000 views.
I live in Melbourne. Ambient room temp was about 18C. But it didn't really matter - most of the CPU and video card core was under the oil anyway.
And yeah, that's a ghost. They were originally smiley faces, but the company expanded their products and introduced a ghost. They're basically...

I'm not sure which forum to post this, but I just wanted to share one of my stories with you guys :D. I had recently read a few articles on submersion cooling, where you take your computer and dump it into a tub of non-electrically-conductive oil. It...
I just read through the review, and it was very good overall. However, just 1 thing bugged me. The self-shadows in Oblivion are a game engine bug, are they not? I'm pretty sure I've seen this problem on all cards, wether ATI or Nvidia. I understand that you probably didn't notice this on the...
It does if you put it on "Advanced". IIRC, "Standard" constitutes no IQ hit but a performance increase.
So Nvidia's HQ = ATI's Cat AI "Standard".
Something I don't understand is why reviews don't set Nvidia cards to HQ, for an apples-to-apples comparison (or as close as you can get to it)...
If you want to play Oblivion at highest settings, you have to get an ATI X1K card, or else you won't be able to enable AA and HDR at the same time. If you want to play it at max settings fast, then you'll probably have to get an X1800XT or higher.
Catalyst AI is supposed to introduce application specific optimisations which have absolutely no effect on visual output. Wether this is true or not I don't know. Personally I just leave it at "standard".
AnandTech just did another comparison - this time using ATI's newest drivers:
ATI's AVIVO comes out on top over Nvidia's PureVideo, AVIVO: 111points vs. Purevideo: 68points
Never had a problem with CCC, with the 3D Renderer and fancy skin disabled, it loads in a few seconds.
The biggest thing I like about ATI's drivers are that they release a working, stable, complete version every month with clear and easy to understand version numbering (left of the decimal...
