    Asus Rampage II Extreme - Sluggish performance

    I bought my P5Q Deluxe just after release, it had all sorts of bsod and freeze so I had to replace, but the new one I got also had minor issues, luckily they eventually settled off with bios update. new boards are always like that, they need time to get mature, next time you'd be better...

    Windows 7 Impressions

    I tried 7 but had to switch back because 3ds max 2009 couldn't save scenes, other than that it was all perfect. I will definitely buy a copy as soon as its final.:)

    Windows 7 - The undisputed king... and it ain't even finished yet :)

    this proves my prediction, that vista is just a bridging product. they wanted win7 to go right after xp but didn't have enough time so they dumped vista in between so keep the brand.

    Bye Bye Superfetch!

    superfetch should be disabled by default or entirely removed, it has no use to whoever for whatever under whichever condition wherever, first thing to do after vista install is head to control panel - services and whop the arse.

    4 sticks of ram died at once...

    The 3G ram in my sig, consisting of two 1G sticks and two 512mb sticks totaling 3G, seems to have died at once. First problem occured when my Vista wouldn't boot, displaying a message that a file is missing, and a "status: cx00000001" at the bottom, I changed every component to finally narrow...

    Where is Vista SP1?

    I think there will be as many service packs as needed, vista will get patched the way xp has been, and it shoul be. that said, I tried the RC, my system was much smoother and more responsive, and so was the internet speed, I can't wait the final SP.

    Symantec Screwup Is 'Worse Than Any Virus'

    Anyone expect a dual slot cooler 8800GT?

    case ventilation is the key, I put a 12mm case fan right beside the 8800GT on the side pane to draw air out, it really helps, not only the card but the lower section of the board as well, so try this method if you haven't. as for third party cooler, I will probably consider it in summer...

    CPU degrades on X38 ?!?!

    yes, it was 5.4 on P5B deluxe and its now 5.0 on the X38, both are lowest of all, and a whopping 10 seconds difference on superpi made it more ridiculous. I am also sure that there was no interference when running the test, I even did 3Dmark 06 and got abnormally low result.

    CPU degrades on X38 ?!?!

    Hi On my previous P5B Deluxe my E6600 was able to do Superpi 1M in 23 second and have 5.4 rating in vista, but on this newly bought Gigabyte X38-DQ6 it only scored 32 seconds and is rated 5.0, does anyone know whats wrong here???:mad: I thought X38 should performance better than 965. BIOS is...

    very weird problem with X38-DQ6

    well it seems to be the floppy check in BIOS that messes things up, I brought my board to Gigabyte service centre today and then did a reset and disabled the floppy check then everything went back to normal. Thank you!

    very weird problem with X38-DQ6

    ok here is my story, I bought theGigabyte X36-DQ6 DDR2 version, after 3 days of use my old seagate harddisk suddenly started to develop bad sectors and other kinds of errors, and eventually wouldn't start windows, every attempt to format the drive ended up freezing the system. I thought it was...

    Idle memory usage in Vista is LESS than in XP? Shocking :)

    your XP memory must be alcoholic because its HIGH.:D I could trim my XP down to 70mb idle with no applications running. you should turn off the service you don't need and do some disk/registry cleaning.

    P5B Deluxe VS DS3

    I could be wrong but I think its more appropriate to compare P5B Deluxe to Gigabyte DQ6, not DS3, and from what I know, many extreme overclockers prefer the Deluxe.
