    new cooler, these temps seem high?

    I dont know what a shroud is, but does your antec's fan connect to the pump? when i had it (it was broken anyway) the fan would connect to the pump and pump to CPU fan 1. I had it at full speed in bios (but i dont know if it had direct control to fan) and it only gave me 1400 rpm all the time...

    new cooler, these temps seem high?

    well thanks for the nightmares... i read that it might need washers for the backplate but when i was installing it I figured that the thumbscrew and the standoffs would fix the looseness of the backplate. After it was done the pump seemed stable to me. mounting system is much easier than the...

    new cooler, these temps seem high?

    http://i.imgur.com/um4mxvP.png?1 I feel i should be getting better temps, considering how low the voltage is. its a Corsair H60 (newer edition) and i have it set up as exhaust in rear of the case. Its also in pull from the rad, so the rad is facing the CPU. I figure since i have one intake and...

    Far Cry 3 unplayable

    i get almost 60fps now without lowering settings. as a personal rule of mine i dont blame the hardware unless more than one game is acting up. sure ive had cards in the past that failed when playing GTA4, Crysis and Far Cry 2, but these games generally ran slow. the remedy was high voltage or...

    Far Cry 3 unplayable

    i get this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5rKZAqhdpA the game isnt that demanding, if it were it would be slow in gameplay. lots of people are having that problem this leads me to belive its not the card. lowering clock might be a remedy but its not the cause.

    Far Cry 3 unplayable

    to avoid confusion i updated my sig. why would one game mess up like this but all else is find? a bit presumptuous to blame the GPU when software could be at fault? Far Cry 3 fps isnt dropping and gameplay is smooth, but textures are acting up. I get the feeling MSI afterburner might be the...

    Far Cry 3 unplayable

    the temps are fine, doesnt go above 68c. every game is fine except far cry3. The card came OC'd, but far cry 3 doesnt seem that demanding to me compared to other games like batman AC. How come no one else has this problem? I used to get it with far cry 2 as well, albeit a lot less frequently and...

    Far Cry 3 unplayable

    The artifacts big and small make this game unplayable. i can get a good 8 minutes out of it before i have to restart the whole game. Walls of green texture encapsulate me at random points in the game. im on 314.22 driver so maybe updating will fix it?

    Is there a virus that can disable a laptop cd/dvd drive?

    there is nothing to be done? one day its working one day its not? how would a banal virus infection affect usb and cd at the same time, when all it does is infect HDD?

    Batman AC installs AMD Dual Core Optimizer on intel

    the visual c++ is annoying but i would leave directx even if its old, its usually installs what the game understands, the game doesnt know about the new versions and the new versions might have done away with the old stuff it needs.

    MSAA vs FXAA vs CSAA vs whatever else

    anyone else confused? i try them out but dont see the difference except maybe FXAA adds blur.

    Ikea desk gallery

    ive got the T legs on galant now (it used to be A legs), it says that its max is 82cm but i got it at around 79cm where the stop mark is, is that okay or not? when it says stop do they mean after that point or even on it its kind of confusing. because the max is still a good deal above that stop...

    monitor calibration?

    i basically used the icc file from http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/articles/icc_profiles.htm which is much better than what came on the disc, but i turn off its gamma adjustment because its too red while the rest seems to do okay. anyway the gamma now when i test it using this site...

    Best way to clean speakers. Woofers,midrange and tweeter?

    it sounds like i shouldnt clean them at all. operating a nuclear plant sounds safer now. i use a big fat microfiber cloth on the woofer, the cone is like plastic glass kind of thing. i fold the cloth into a cudgel type shape and go over it in circles. but i feel i dont have to, dust mainly...

    Behringer MS40 vs M-Audio AV40

    there is evidence of this? why would they make their own product bad? what would you recommend i aim for? i dont care for built in dac i have a sound card that i will be using. from an old Hardforum thread these were the choices:

    Behringer MS40 vs M-Audio AV40

    im also considering getting dayton B652 bookshelfs the cheap ones wonder if they are better. behringer and m-audio australian prices are pretty high around 200 bucks. the problem i have with bookshelfs is placement, they aint nearfield so i dont know, i want them for gaming mostly.

    Which GTX 670 should i get you think?

    yeah the asus looks awesome, but the price of galaxy is too tempting so shall get that. Im not gonna overclock it, hope the factory overclock is stable. thanks for all the help, one small question though, is it better to have the graphic card on the top pci-e or the bottom near the PSU?
  39. D

    Which GTX 670 should i get you think?

    I think im gonna go with the galaxy, its custom in a way since it uses the 680 pcb its just has normal cooling.
  40. D

    Which GTX 670 should i get you think?

    i cant have the custom design, only galaxy avaliable is the reference one which is also overclocked. the FTW ($479) is over my budget. Its between galaxy, gigabyte and gainward.
