    ssd setup/tweaks question

    i just got a 120gb ssd (patriot inferno), and was wondering what kind of things there are to consider (if any) when setting it up, or any tweaks to make? it's going to be replacing my current 7200rpm hard drive as my os/programs drive. currently running 64 bit windows 7 ultimate. also, would...

    Recommend a good SSD for a beginner..

    ati overdrive causing tearing with dual monitors

    this worked! thanks! i was trying the ccc profile one, i'd changed all three memory speed settings to the same (100000 for 5850), but it was still changing it even though as far as i could tell i'd activated the profile *confused* but simply disabling hardware acceleration in flash makes it so...

    ati overdrive causing tearing with dual monitors

    i haven't disabled overdrive since i leave my computer on all the time so i figure the throttling down of the core speed would be good for saving power / less heat when it's not being used for gaming. i'll try editing the ccc profile first, i'll look into the msi ab if that doesnt work. it's...

    ati overdrive causing tearing with dual monitors

    i have a 5850. i just set up my second monitor, and now whenever i load a page that has a flash video or close the page (youtube videos etc) the screen tears. after some searching i found out it has to do with ati overdrive, and it happens whenever the video card's memory clock speed gets...

    Counter-Strike Source on-line tournament and hacks

    ya, find scrims at sourcescrim, advertise for cal-bad. if you're consistently winning, start looking for better teams (cal-o / cal-o+) etc. if not, then stay there. dont just play dust2, enter cal, theres plenty of horrible teams in cal-o, and it's more satisfying winning a match in a more...

    is there a link for where i could purchase the pcb for mister x's xp amp and/or a parts list? i'm looking at building an amp this summer, and this looks promising.

    what does cpu/10 mean for fsb:dram?

    i used ntune to auto oc my system cuz i was lazy, and i was looking at cpuz in the memory tab. the fsb:dram says cpu/10; i thought it was supposed to be some kind of divider like 2:3? what does the cpu/10 mean? currently running at 230fsb x10 for cpu. is it 1:1 or like 4:5 or what? thanks.

    Thoughts on build?

    GET THE NT06 i can't stress this enough. get it. it runs passive, yet is still the best cooler available for the silverstone. just make sure your psu has a bottom draw 120mm fan.

    yeah, you can set it to load a profile when it gets to a certain temperature, too.

    i used the coarse tune with ntune, my computer's still fine, nothing wrong, it put the fsb at 230 and i'm assuming is running a divider on the ram (otherwise i have some pretty hardcore value ram), i forgot what it set the video card to, but it gave a noticeable difference (around 70fps average...
