true 120hz? try to run a frame skipping test, http://www.testufo.com/#test=frameskipping
how often do you get screen stuttering? just because you can run it at 120hz doesnt mean it's stable. My qnix was overclockable to 120hz as well until i ran that test, the screen stutter like crazy...
wow didn't know newegg does something like this. I've scored a few good deals on newegg open box, and luckily I haven't dealt with refurbished. Most of my items are monitors and video cards. So far everything I bought have the same warranty as the original.
i have a brand new (sealed) retail box of the famous creative x-fi platinum. i'll let it go for $90 + shipping.
comes with everything listed on here: http://us.creative.com/products/product.asp?category=1&subcategory=208&product=14065&nav=4
soft modding it helps the overclock..
but it's weird now after i changed it back to default, i stilll have 100 in loss of 3dmark06 score
oh and when u say it smokes right outside of the box, are u trying to say it's running really hot?/
Before all these soft volt modding and new drivers, my 8800GT which was running at 720/1800/975 on forceware 169.09, got a solid 3DMark06 score of about 13440
after editting my bios to change the volt to 1.1 and install these new drivers (169.13, then 169.21) my 3DMark06 drops about 100...
look at the top of the cube and the bottom of the cute. if the two clock of duration are the same then ur fine. if the bottom clock reads lower than the top then it's artifacting....basically when atitool detects an artifacts, it resets the bottom clock.
u get a score a little below 14K in 3dMark06 with a Quadcore running at 3.6ghz...that's a really low score for a card that cost $400... my 8800gt also get a score really close to 14K in 3dmark06 when pairing with DUAL CORE e6750 @ 3.6 ghz.
I just flashed my bios and changed the voltage for EXTRA to 1.1...
and i can immediately see a noticeable difference. before when i run attitool to scan for artifacts, with the speed clock @ 730/1000, in less than 10 seconds, it would start getting artifacts right away.
i also have a question that i cannot find an answer to. which one do you think better:
A) modifying my 8800GT Superclocked bios and change the speed to the Super Superclocked (SSC), then nvflash the new bios.
B) nvflash an 8800GT Super Superclocked(SSC) bios directly onto my SC card...
just curious, how many hours did you scan for artifacts with ATITOOL ? passing the test 30~60 minutes doesn't mean it's stable. when stable i mean at least 3 hours.
I have my 8800GT went through for a good 56 minutes until atitool detects artifacts.
Backing up the bios can be a lot more easier with NiBiTor. Simply run NiBiTor (in Vista, make sure you run it as adminstrator).
Tools --> Read BIOS --> Select Device... (select your video card then hit OK)
once that's done, go to:
Tools --> Read BIOS --> Read into NiBiTor
on the sataII HDD, there's a jumper that limits to only 1.5gb/sec and this jumper is there by default. i have no idea why they do this, but in order for us to fully use the speed of sataII we have to remove the jumper.
so with the jumper on, i think you should be able to use it with sataI...
lol after tens of reboots and hours of googling, i finally gave up and make a thread on hardforum. As soon as I was done posting, a brilliant idea popped up: "DISK MANAGEMENT"!!!! i totally forgot about that. anyway long story short, Ive solved my problems with DISK MANAGEMENT :D
hi guys, please let me quickly brief this up.
My rig (in my sig) is running on windows XP w/ sp2. I recently score 2 HD's on frys and decided to set up a raid0 to run them. i decided to use gigabyte raid controller (purple ports) to set up my array, main reason is my comp bootup a lot...
