    RAM speeds achieved w/8x8gb sticks on TR MoBo's?

    And now I have it stable at 3600MHz -- stock timings. (16/16/16/36@1.35v) Incredible that filling all the DIMMs makes that much of a variance. *EDIT* May have spoke too soon. Ran Memtest overnight and had a single error... No matter what I do, it finds errors on test 8 (random numbers)...

    RAM speeds achieved w/8x8gb sticks on TR MoBo's?

    I can verify using only 4 dimms (I.e. one pack of the listed RAM) is able to achieve 3200MHz just fine. I also think one of the 8 sticks I had was faulty. I was getting a lot of weird stutters on the system, so I decided to tinker because of that. I may permanently downscale to 32GB (4x8gb...

    RAM speeds achieved w/8x8gb sticks on TR MoBo's?

    I haven't tried it -- but there are other QVL listed 8GBx4 G.Skill at 3200Mhz so I'd imagine they would.

    RAM speeds achieved w/8x8gb sticks on TR MoBo's?

    I don't disagree. However, I'd rather not boot into windows on RAM that is throwing out errors... Can cause OS corruption if you're not careful.

    RAM speeds achieved w/8x8gb sticks on TR MoBo's?

    Spent a few hours today tying to get beyond 2933MHz to no avail. I was trying, specifically, to get to 3200MHz. Tried pretty much every timing possibility going as high as 22/22/22/42 with no successful take. IT would post, but would not pass memtest.

    RAM speeds achieved w/8x8gb sticks on TR MoBo's?

    It is! I actually got lucky -- because I didn't investigate that before hand... I knew thew 3200mhz version was, so I assumed the 3600 was. Boy was I relieved when I got it installed and found out I was right.

    RAM speeds achieved w/8x8gb sticks on TR MoBo's?

    Hello everyone -- I was curious what sorts of speeds others with the new Zenith Extreme x399 boards were getting when filling all 8 banks with 8gb sticks. I personally bought two G.Skill 4 x 8gb kits (Sku: F4-3600C16Q-32GTZR) and currently have them running and stable @2933 MHz on stock...

    After ~10 years, my trusty Logitech mx518 mouse broke, looking for a similar replacement

    I would look at the Steelseries brand mice -- they're shaped very similarly, and mostly use Optical sensors (just like your old logitech).

    Wide Mouse Suggestions

    I've used the Corsair M65 (I actually own one) and I didn't like it at all. The plastic in the back of the mouse not being one solid piece would cut into my hand, making it extremely uncomfortable. After long periods of gaming sessions, I would have a heavy indentation on my palm as well as skin...

    Wide Mouse Suggestions

    Hey Hardforumers -- I need your opinion/help: I'm kind of a peripheral nut - but ever since the Logitec G9 and G9x were discontinued I haven't been able to find a mouse that was comfortable for me. I have large hands, and loved the extra width the old G9 gave. I personally can't stand the MMO...

    Old PSU Still up to snuff?

    Thanks guys - I figured as much... I haven't kept up with the PSU world nearly as much as I have the MoBo/CPU/GPU world... Just wanted the piece of mind of other eyes confirming my hopes. I appreciate the feedback.

    Old PSU Still up to snuff?

    I bought an extremely high end PSU in 2011 - and by all standards it still outpaces a lot of what's around today. (8 +12v rails.... mmmm...) Antec High Current Pro HCP-1200 Antec High Current Pro HCP-1200 1200W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Yes, High Current Hybrid Cable...

    Video Card Vendor Ranking 2016

    I've owned many of the brands that are out there today... EVGA used to be my go-to, but after two Factory OC'd cards failed because of the Overclock (I.e. I had to set everything back to factory standard specs recommended by nVidia) to stabilize it to be able to play anything... I decided to...

    Holy crap, it worked! Dead video card, resurrected!

    I did this with my 8800GTx back in the day. Worked like a dream!

    Does stuttering problem occur in any NVIDIA cards other than the GTX 460's ?

    Usually 'stuttering' problems with a graphics card is an Un-stable or overheating overclock. Even factory OC cards can have this problem. (I recently had this issue with a 285GTX)

    BFG 285 GTX OC problems

    We've already solved the problem - it's not power at all. The CPU (i7 920 Stock @ 2.4GHz) is running at 3.8GHz. Been running stable sense the week the i7 was launched (I've had it that long). Prime-95 tested for 48 hours when it was originally done.

    Always put new TIM on your video cards!

    Another sort of 'silly' question... I don't have a retailer around me that sells PC components really, so I normally use Newegg (like most everyone else). I can't help but notice they don't sell X23. Where do you all get yours from?

    Will any sort of processor TIM be adequate, or is there certain ones you should not utilize when doing this?

    BFG 285 GTX OC problems

    djoye, This card was NOT overclocked by me. It's a BFG 285 GTX OC (came from BFG already overclocked!) It's a factory issue, not a user issue in this case.

    BFG 285 GTX OC problems

    I was actually in the middle of doing this -- It turns out the newer nVidia drivers changed fan-speeds to defaults (rather than taking OC cards into account). I started by manually turning the GPU fan 100%. This helped (some). Rather than fully crashing, it would stutter for a while. I took...

    BFG 285 GTX OC problems

    I did this (uninstalled all drivers via 3Dguru's Driver Sweeper... Rebooted back into safe mode... Installed 260.99 Nvidia drivers) - and the problem indeed persists. I was able to go into Event Viewer (using Crysis as my test subject) and get the data from the crash. (I apologize in advance...

    BFG 285 GTX OC problems

    I'm well aware. DirectX 11 is a super-set (DX 10.0/10.1/11). It automatically utilizes the best option based upon the hardware. *EDIT* Oh, however I did forget to mention... My system is running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit edition.

    BFG 285 GTX OC problems

    So, I have a rather large issue with Driver failures with my 285 GTX, and I'm not sure if anyone else is having the same problem, or if it's just a power issue. What I have: i7 920 @ 3.8GHz EVGA E758-TR 3-Way SLI Mobo BFG 285 GTX oc 6GB Corsair Dominator ram f4tality Creative...

    Best bang for the game

    Out of curisoity, and sheer laziness, what do you all think is the best INTEL for the dollar when it comes down to gaming? What would the best for the dollar be now, for possible future games (I.E. quad-cores, etc...)

    G80 vs 280... is it worth is?

    I currently own a BFG 8800 GTX OC... Would it really be worth "upgradeing" to the new 9800 GTX? Also, how're the 9800 GX2's fareing? I've not had time to research into them.

    Antec Nine hundred?

    Well... I prefer the clear side panels. If I'm buying a case, I want something I can show off to my friends. The case is only first glimpse, the inside is what really matters. I'm coming from the XCLIO A380BK. The only problem with it, I had to trim away some plastic from the side fan for my...

    Antec Nine hundred?

    That's pretty much what i've read everywhere else too, about the cable management. I plan to have lots of zip ties, and ziptie mounts. So hopefully it won't be too much of an issue. My Seasonic m12 powersupply is 100% modular, so it may even look kinda cool. Keep 'em coming though! If...

    Antec Nine hundred?

    I'm thinking about getting the nine hundred... I've read nothing but great reviews, but I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing any other cases. I've pretty much gone over every case that newegg.com has to offer. But, there's always possibility of something better! I'm looking for massive air...

    Well, I have one of these fans in the exhaust port in the back of my case. The heatsink is large enough that it's RIGHT next to this...

    GA-965P-DS3 question

    I'm trying to use the onboard for now. I'll try to see if they're enabled in the BIOS... I believe I went through everything in the BIOS and set it. I may just end up getting a seperate soundcard anyways, so I'm not to worried about it. Thanks for the help everyone!
