    Who's running their 8800GT @ 2000Mhz memory?

    I am running the SSC card also, 2 of them actually. I haven't really tried to overclock yet. The temps stay pretty high on stock settings. No problem with stability though. My last run on 3dmark06 was 16658. So I am content for now.

    Ultima-90: Is it supposed to feel like that?

    I just finished putting together my first Intel based rig. So yesterday I decide to go ahead and install the Ultima-90. The instructions seems simple enough, but it didn't seem to be a very solid fit on the mobo. I disassembled and tried it again. Still it didn't fell as I had imagined. I...

    DDR2 1066 vs. 800

    Thanks for the help Mark, I was actually considering the GSKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Today I found some Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 for several dollars cheaper than...

    DDR2 1066 vs. 800

    I am getting ready to build my first intel machine. Right now I am thinking about: EVGA nForce 680i mobo C2D E6850 Dominator DDR2 800 From what I have read, am I right at saying? If memory is 2x the actual speed and the FSB is 4x. For a 1333, the actual speed would be 333.3...

    dual core showing as single

    I have a dell latitude D620. This is my first dual core. In the task manager it only shows 1CPU. Does the core duo display duals as a single or is there a way to enable both?

    30% off cupon "hack"

    I was able to score the 500GB external HDDs for $140. The original cost is $300. The store had them marked down to $200. When the cashier scanned the coupon against the $200 it came up $0. She said the reason was it was hardware and not an accessory. I spoke to a manager who agreed the coupon...

    VGA Cooling fit

    I need a replacement (single slot) VGA Cooler for a X800XL PE that will fit my SN85G4V3. I have tried the Zalman Fatal1ty FS-V7 and it is too think. Does anyone know of any coolers that will fit. The Zalman is only around a 1/2" too think. If I can't find a good single slot cooler, I guess...

    Good Non-OC SLI Mobo

    I think the Antec 550W PS should be fine. Has there been any problems using Patriot memory? I have had pretty good luck with it in the past. I am also a fan of Crucial Ballistix. Any thoughts?

    Good Non-OC SLI Mobo

    I am building a new rig for a friend. He has no interest in overclocking and little knowledge of tweaking. I am hoping to be able to build a good SLI system for under $1000. Initially we will start with one video card with plans of adding another soon. Any suggestions on a good mobo? The rest...

    Slim GPU Cooler

    I need a thin GPU cooler for my X800XT PE. The bearing on my fan sounds like it is going out. I am looking for something thin enough to use with my shuttle case. Does anyone have experience with any good coolers around the same size as stock?

    Too much juice for my Shuttle XPC SN85G4V3??

    I just built my first SFF rig. I'm running a 3700+ clawhammer with an ATI X800XL. Is this going to require more power than the 240W PS can supply. It runs everything just fine, but craps out on Super Pi about half the time. All the temps look good and no crashes yet. Has anyone had similar...

    DFI Lanparty UT 250BG Good Bad and the ugly

    Yeah, there are a few of beta bios out there. I am using beta v4 - 10/15 which extends the memory voltage up to 4.0v. You can also run memtest from the bios without any boot device.

    DFI Lanparty UT 250BG Good Bad and the ugly

    I have had nothing but good luck with mine. It has been a very solid board. IMO, it is the most functional board for overclocking. Also, it looks great with a couple of UV cold cathods. Here is a pic of mine, about 75% complete on the cable management.;)...

    New to OCing A64...advice?

    AGP/PCI lock lets you adjust the HTT without changing the ACP/PCI speed. If you get these speeds too high, the video card or hard drive could start acting flakey.

    New to OCing A64...advice?

    Man, I am puzzled. Try running the memory in 1&2 just to see if it is recognized as dual channel. What voltage are you running on your CPU??
  37. S

    New to OCing A64...advice?

    What voltage are you using with your memory? Also, what kind of temperatures are you getting from your CPU?
  38. S

    New to OCing A64...advice?

    If you have your memory in 1&3 it should be dual channel. When you boot does the flash screen say dual channel? You may be able to get your memory to 250Mhz. Try relaxing the timing a little and adding a little more voltage. For example, I run my ballistix at 250Mhz 2.5-3-3-10 at 2.9v. All...
