    Question dealing with Dual core opterons and motherboard compatibility.

    I have quick question. I'm looking at a dual socket motherboard (Tyan GX28) it says that with a bios update it will support dual core opterons. My question is, if I get this board and it comes with an older bios will I still be able to stick dual cores in and boot up long enough to flash the...

    Underclocking PC4000 give tight timings?

    I've been getting some errors with my old Buffalo PC3200 2.5cas stick of ram and I'm tired of 2-3-3-11 at 220Mhz with 3.2v. I've been eyeing out the Corsair PC4000 ram for awhile but the 3-4-4-8 timings always seem to make me run away in terror. So I was wondering would getting the PC4000...

    AN7 - Onboard lan cuts out.

    Ok, I've been using this board for awhile and overclocking has been good. Now though after 10 minutes the lan will cut out and I have to restart to get it to work again. It first started when I was doing 222x11.5... So I turned it down to 220x11.5 and that seemed to solve the problem. Now its...

    Locking 6800 Overclock.

    I'm having difficulty in keeping my 6800 GT using 400/1100 it sometimes jumps back 350/1000 after a reboot or when I'm playing with settings. I'm just using the coolbits 2. Is there anything to lock the overclock?

    Dollar at the end of the day.

    Just pre-ordered my 6800GT from evga considering newegg pushed theirs back to 8/2/04 too, so now that I'm $426.99 poorer I was wondering how everyone else made out today. Made any high priced purchases?

    Will x800 Pro Vivo always be XTPE flashable?

    Well I just got myself some raptors and a VGA silencer for my 9800 Pro so a upgrade is pretty much out of the question for a few months. I'm just wondering if I don't jump on the vivo wagon now will I not be able to do the XTPE bios flash and get the 16 pipelines?

    Suggestions on Dual Socket A Motherboard

    Seeing that I have (2) 2400+ Mobiles I was thinking of getting a new motherboard. All I have found are 200/266 FSB versions, considering that I could get the mobiles to 2Ghz with a high multiplyer I figured it wouldn't be to bad. What motherboard have you guys do you suggest? What has the...

    Volcano 11+ Fan just needed to be turned around?

    Well after may weeks of always having overheating problems I just decided to make the fan "suck" the hot air instead of blowing it onto the heatsink and what a difference. I went from 50 idle to 47 and from 60+ load down to 50 load. I'm very happy now, it may not be the 30-40 idle temps I...

    Release Date Lottery (HL2)

    Well, I just got around to "preodering" my copy of Half Life 2 from my newly opened Gamestop store just down the street. Seeing that I had about 10 games I absolutely hated and wanted to get rid of, I took them down so I could get some store credit. Bought Xenosaga after finally founding out...

    Memory timings?

    Another one of those question, I have the NF7-s Rev.2 and I was running my memory at 2.5-3-3-8 and then I heard that 2-2-2-11 was an optimal setting for the nforce boards. So... I set to 2-2-2-11 but even with the highest voltage I couldn't hit it. Instead I went for 2-3-3-11 and it works...

    Word more demanding then Prime95?

    Well this is more of a heating issue, my Barton usually runs at 46 idle and 52 at max load but recently it has been climing to 58. Getting a little scared I decided to reseat my proc under my Volcano 11+ heatsink, removing all the old paste and reapplying it I was happy to see my temps return...

    Intakes on the bottom of case?

    Well after messing with my computer for the last few days, I noticed that the rear fan are always blowing out cold air. The PSU is the only only remotely removing the hot air coming out of the case, I figured this is because the PSU has 2 fans one on the bottom that sucks air into the unit and...
