    Update your bios, get free memory performance

    With the new bios for ryzen 2 thread rippers I was able to bump my memory clocks up quite a bit I was able to boot into windows at 3800mhz 16 18 18 38 and 3266mhz 14 14 14 34 where before I would insta-crash at those clocks, it looks like the 3800mhz isn't stable, but so far so good on 3266mhz...

    Just spent a bunch of money :p (Need a cooler I suppose)

    So I finally pulled the trigger on my next gaming PC, my current one was built like Oct 2011, which is a pretty good run compared to how it use to go. It started with buying the case at work, then the PSU at work, to complete mind disconnected impulse buying when I got home. Here's the damage...

    Crazy deal?

    I just went to pickup bf3 premium from best buy and decided to get these batman 1 and 2 steel book blu rays for $10. When I checked out they gave me *two* 5 dollar gift cards, one for each DVD which I'm assuming is a screw up as they are normally $30 without the black Friday discount. May want...

    I have an 9800gt that I got as a replacement for an older AGP card that I couldn't use due to it being pci-e. Will this work with my Hd6970 for physics support? Is I worth the trouble of mixing ate and nvidia?

    BF3 doesnt start

    I have a relatively old system, when I try to start BF3 from the web interface, it starts a BF3 window that is solid white with the bf3 icon in the center, sits at 100% cpu and about 55% ram usage and nothing ever happens. Is there any way I can tweak configs or something to lower the...

    Catch me up

    My xfx 7950gt agp just blew up and I was hoping to keep that card until I upgarded my old 939 system in the distant future. (Lack of time and interest in gaming for the past few years) They are offering me an 9800gt, but that would require me to buy a new motherboard, processor, ram, and...

    Visual studio compiler bug?

    I was writing some c along the lines of: for (i = 0, j = 0; i < hLength && j < length - hLength;) list[i + j] = (left[i] < right[j]) ? left[i++] : right[j++]; And noticed that visual studio's compiler does the post increment *before* the assignment. Nothing big I know, but I figured...

    Ie7 for x64

    Just saw this on the inq: I tried it out, installs both 32bit and 64bit binaries in Xp64 and *gasp* they made the icon on the desktop open the 64bit binary by default instead of 32bit. Which hopefully means 64bit plugins are finally "required" forcing...

    Playing dvd's without the disc
