    3700x 4.3GHz Voltages

    Ran a few tests on a new build I'm working on for a friend and I managed to push my 3700x to 4.3GHz all core @ 1.238v (1.3v bios w/ vdroop). I haven't seen much binning info on the silicon quality of 3700x's and I want to know if this is normal or if my voltage is particularly low. Don't mind...

    [DEAD] LG 34" Ultrawide IPS Monitor $215 Amazon

    "LG 34UM69G-B 34-Inch 21:9 UltraWide IPS Monitor with 1ms Motion Blur Reduction and FreeSync" Found it on Amazon. I just picked it up to check it out. 200 for an ultrawide IPS isn't bad imo. 5ms GTG response time but apparently...

    Haswell, Yay or Nay?

    The new Intel Haswell 4770k CPU based on some benchmarks perform slightly faster than the 3770k. Is it worth it to upgrade my 3770k to a 4770k? How much do you think my trusty 3770k is worth? (4.7@1.35v)

    Strange shutdown?

    Simply, whenever I turn on VirtuMVP Virtual Vsync and run GTA IV. My computer just shuts down and reboots. Strange combination. Any explanation? (rhymed a little there)

    VirtuMVP works!

    At first I was skeptical but it seems VirtuMVP really improved my 3DMark 11 score! 3770k with a GTX 680 on a ASRock Z77 Extreme 4 Mobo! Here is my score before VirtuMVP (Clock speed is actually 3.7GHz I have no clue why it doesn't show that...) After...

    Storm scout, H80, 3770k 680 temps?

    So I made the change from AMD to Intel, sold my 1100T to get a 3770K and i'm quite satisfied. I have two 6870's running in CF ~ I'm selling them soon. Now my problem is since i'm not familiar with intel and the new ivy bridge, I have no clue what temps I should be getting. The 3770K is cooled by...

    Phenom II x6 1100T price?

    I still have my 1100T from like two years ago. I bought it at frys for 199 and got a good deal for it. I'm planning on upgrading to intel 3770k and found that 1100t's still sell for around 200. How is it that the 1100T has such a high resale value. I found nothing special about this processor in...

    6870 Eyefinity heat problems

    I've got my Asus 6870 Direct CU connected to 2 15" vga monitors and 1 DVI-D 21.5" (Syncmaster 214T) Obviously this config doesn't normally work so I use SoftTH. My idle temps are 44C and load goes up to 80C which often leads me to crash. I have a pretty storm scout with a H60 blowing...
