    4870x2 CrossfireX screen gets screwed up then game crashes.

    I have two 4870x2 cards and am running them in crossfire. With crossfire enabled whenever I run a game, about ten minutes in the game will freeze, and the screen will get all messed up with weird colors and lines going through it. Then I have to hard restart the computer. What could possibly be...

    So I just blew up a power supply...

    Apparently an 850w Cooler Master PSU is not enough to run 2 4870x2s in crossfire, an I7 920, and one hard drive. After 3 minutes of Furmark the thing exploded. The reason I was even running it on that PSU, is because something is wrong with my 1200w silverstone. I can't even run furmark for 5...

    Sound card DAC or reciever DAC?

    I have a $60 XFI Xtrememusic sound card. I have a $350 Denon-AVR688 home theater receiver that I am going to be using for all my music I'm playing through the computer. Would it be better to connect it via analog (RCA plugs?) which would be using the DAC on my XFI card, or would it be best to...

    Voltage - How much is too much if your temps are fine?

    I am getting a water cooling setup for my E6750 soon, and I was wondering, as long as the temps are fine, how much voltage is safe? I can push it over 4ghz at about 1.56v, could probably maybe go farther (waiting on my WC setup to get here) how much voltage is "unsafe"?

    E6750 running very hot when OC'd. Is my only chocice water cooling?

    As I posted sometime before, I managed to get a very nice E6750, that is stable up to about 3.95ghz. Problem is, the temps are just way to hot at these speeds. Will idle around 47c, then as soon as you run orthos, both cores will shoot up to above 80c pretty quickly. I am using a Tuniq Tower 120...

    Video card is around 93c when playing games.

    Is this normal? It's a Geforce Go 7900GTX in an M1710 XPS. Why is it so hot? Is there any way to increase the fan speed or something? Rivatuner won't work.

    Go Vista or not?

    I have a very nice system with SLI'd 8800GTXs, and an overclocked E6750. I REALLY don't want to go Vista. (Still using XP-32 bit) Is it really worth it to go to Vista for Directx10? What games are even using DX10? Is DX10 going to be released on XP eventually? What difference does DX10 make in a...

    LGA775 cpu pin broken/missing. Anything I can do?

    I recently acquired an LGA775 board, but I believe one of the pins is broken/missing. Take a look at this picture, and look where the red arrow is. http://infamouspwnage.com/pin.JPG First of all, is this pin actually even used for anything? Or is it just a ground/dummy pin. Anyone have a...

    Random restart durring Orthos = ?

    I'm currently pushing my E6750 near 4ghz. It doesn't error out, but just randomly restarts durring the test, does that mean I am just not giving it enough voltage, or the cpu just isn't going to go any higher? The temps are already going out of my comfort zone, so I don't want to really give it...

    EVGA 8800GTX RMA Horror Story

    About 40 days ago, I purchased two 8800GTXs (supeclocked edition) for my new SLI system. I would have bought it through newegg, but my new debit card hadn't came in the mail yet, so I had to buy through an ebay-stores reseller instead. They were both brand new, packaged and unregistered cards...

    E6750 @ 3.95ghz Orthos stable. (POST @ 4.3ghz)

    I happened to pick up a nice e6750 chip. I am currently running it at 1.54v @ 3.95ghz. Temps are a little high, (around 70c load) is this too high to run at? Think I can lower the voltage any and be ok?
