    After reading the article I am wondering if it may be possible to replace the C7 cpu on my HP2133 with the Nano? since they are pin compatible. That would be a nice upgrade.:p:D

    Dual vs Quad , Gaming, is there a difference?

    I changed from the E6700 to the Q6600 and even though I had the E6700 running at 3.5Ghz and now the Q6600 is running at 3.0Ghz I get the same performance on FEAR and other games as I did with the E6700 @ 3.5Ghz, so I would say the quads are faster from my own experience.

    7950gx2 loses SLI when overclocked, no temp readings

    I have always used rivatuner to overclock my 7950GX2's and to set the fan speeds, I had them running for a whole year without any problems at all, But I would never use Ntuneas it is a piece of crap. I can't think of what could be causing the one card to drop like that, it is very strange all I...

    8800 temps

    Hey Guys, is there any other way then using ntune to set the fan speed higher than stock on the 8800GTX. Even after creating a profile every time you reboot the computer the fan speed goes back to 59%, freaking ntune is buggier than a ford pinto - piece of cr**p :mad: :mad: :mad:

    If not 680i, then..? (recommendation request)

    Another vote for the Evga 680i, I had mine since the release date and it has been rock solid with zero problems for me so far. I personally would not get the Asus boards (long time Asus customer) they are way over priced and their customer support sucks big time!!!!. :p
