    Is upgrading from X58/i7 920 to Z68 /2600K worth while?

    I am currently running a X58 mobo with a i7 920 and 6GB of ram. I am considering upgrading to a Z68 mobo with a 2600K. Do you guys think it wil make a noticeable difference? I use it for gaming and I have a HD6970 which I want to keep using. I am just not sure if it is worth the money.

    GIGABYTE G1.Sniper 2 Sandy Bride Motherboard Review @ [H]

    Fixed, thanks. Kyle I am more interested in the Asus Z86 boards. At least the Asus tweaking software isn't useless. But I am wondering if there is any point in upgrading from an X58/core i7 920 to a Z86/i7 2600K system. I am not sure the difference in performance is noticeable. Let alone worth...

    ASUS P8Z68-V Pro Z68 Chipset Motherboard Review @ [H]

    I am very dissappointed about the Virtu feature. When I first heard about it I was very interested because of the possible power saving capabilities. After reading some tests I discovered that there is no power saving at all. That must be due to the immaturity of this technology. The Virtu...

    VisionTek 700W Power Supply Review @ [H]

    It annoys me that many manufacturers sell rebranded hardware. For the customer it is very hard to discover what product they are buying. Brands like Corsair are known to sell rebranded products but at least they have a good QC. If large OEMs like Topower start selling rebranded products too...

    OCZ Technology Vertex 3 SSD 120GB and 240GB Review @ [H]

    On this page: The vertex3 240GB is listed twice and the Agility is omitted. I am still not sure why I should buy the Max IOPS instead of the vanilla Vertex3. Sometimes it is even slower than the vanilla...

    Help with Motherboard

    I would first reset the CMOS if you havent already done that. That may solve your problems. If that doesnt help just wait for the bios chip. I hope it isnt soldered onto the motherboard because in that care you cannot replace it. Then I would replace the CPU. Personally, i dont think that the...

    Memory probs on P5B Deluxe

    I have an Asus P5B deluxe mobo with 4x1GB of RAM. For some reason, windows only shows 3GB of ram. I am certain that the modules themselves are ok because my system works fine with each individual module. So I am thinking there must be some compatibility issue with them. I already had the elixir...

    The Router Recommendations Thread (Consumer)

    I am not looking for IPS/IDS/Anti-Virus/Anti-Spyware features but I thought that the WRVS4400N was comparable to the DIR-655. I want to do some p2p and BT downloading. Therefore, it needs to be able to handle portforwarding and port triggering. My current router has those options, only it...

    SPDIF problems with X-Fi

    I recently swapped my SB Audigy2 with a X-Fi.I am using the SPDIF output on the card which doubles as a mic input. In software, I can choose between SPDIF out and mic mode.

    Speedfan detects everything OK. But Crystal Control doesn't support speedfan. But I have MBM working with the P5B now. Only thing is that Crystal Control displays the temps in fahrenheit while mbm is configured to show temps in celsius :confused:

    mbm doesn't support my mobo-> no more crystal fontz

    I don't think it is a matter of configuring MBM. MBM only shows two temperature sensors: LM78 and LM78- tekrame probe. The first gives me the system temp and the second is always at 0 degrees. Funny. It seems that you can select a different mobo from the list in teh wizard. I chose the Asus...
