Parting out my i5 750 my build.
XFX HD 5850 (took apart once to fix, clean vibrating fan, works great before and since)
MSI P55-GD65 w/ i5 750 (was overclocked to 3.5ghz)
4gb (2x2gb) Corsair Dominator 1600 DDR3 w/...
I'm buying an external 2.5" enclosure to transfer OS to SSD and after that I want to put a laptop hard drive in it.
PM me with offers.
And lets pretend that flooding in Thailand never affected hard drive prices...
I have my i5 750 at 4.0 using 21 X 190 and testing it for 5 minutes at certain voltages
My first errors were hardware detection errors, so an increase of DRAM voltage from 1.65 to 1.67 and loosening memory timings seems to have fixed that.
My second errors were rounding errors, and i put my...
I am using MIAHALLEN's overclocking guide and I have made it through step one which is determining your maximum stable base clock
Okay my maximum stable base clock is 206
Now I am on step 2 and getting confused:
Yeah its a real pain. I must have purchased a buggy cpu...
I honestly just dont know how with my massive prolimitech megahalem cpu cooler with two push/pull fans on it, that my voltages have to be so high and that 4.0 has been a three year struggle to reach with still no success.
thanks guys, well I ran prime95 overnight and it had zero errors!
Im happy with this because I was able to keep my memory clocked high too this time around
ill be doing some more tinkering but i think I have my specs set for 24/7 now
Im using an msi gd65 board
the i5 is at 3.8 right now
vcore: 1.350 (failed intel burn test at 1.325)
ram voltage: 1.65 (stock)
memory: 8 8 8 24 1450mhz
I passed 5 runs of intel burn test at these settings and the cpu never went over 80c
Im going to run prime95 overnight.
Let me know...
now I see why OCN banned talk of bitcoin on their forum :rolleyes:
Turns everyone into a bunch of first graders.
Anyways, I had a short hype with bitcoins and I was thinking about building a mining rig because my house has solar panels so power costs would be minimal. But, meh, if I really...
Getting serious about putting together a mini itx system.
Figure I'd give a shout out for some needed components.
I want to keep costs minimal.
Going AMD for cost effectiveness, any low end AM3 socket chip will do. I'd like to try and keep it under $50
Being a mini itx...
For anyone wondering how good of a gpu the mobile Radeon 6770m is, I made a short video of me running Bad Company 2 at medium settings.
The game runs quite well on this gpu, on FRAPS, which didn't display FPS in the video for some reason, I was getting 50 - 70 FPS. I suffered one severe drop...
This is the first pair of headphones I owned and I love them. The 7.1 surround sound works great. These are a wireless pair of headphones for those that don't know.
However it seems when I move my head at certain angles I hear clicking sounds. To be honest it sounds almost exactly like a...

into my brothers computer and kept his 600 watt silverstone PSU.

human society (or at least american) has turned it values towards materialism and consumerism
