    Have you lost your gaming interest?

    20 here and I'm super burnt out on gaming after playing WoW for 5-6 years when I was younger. Shooters are decent but mostly meh. The only games that I can play for more than 10 minutes anymore are on iOS. Maybe I just haven't discovered the right game. Also, having only a Mac without enough...

    FS: Intel Xeon E5-2687W 8-core 3.0GHz, ASUS X79 Sabertooth Mobo

    Yep, <500w for everything listed :) I could game and fold at the same time without the PSU breaking a sweat.

    I honestly don't even know. I did mostly WCG on it. But I'm sure it's up there.

    FS: Intel Xeon E5-2687W 8-core 3.0GHz, ASUS X79 Sabertooth Mobo

    I haven't tried OCing it in a while, but from what I remember, the strap will not go up at all. I was able to raise the multiplier to 31x but it wasn't always consistent. Either way it's an amazing chip to fold on!

    Not sure about mounting brackets but regarding your first question--why not just put the card in and see for yourself?

    iTunes needs to die. Immediately.

    I feel you OP. I also lost all my iPad data this way including songs I recorded in GarageBand. Really sad. iCloud backup didn't seem to have my GB data either.

    Macbook Pro or Macbook Air?

    1 more vote for the Air here, I had a 13" Pro which was great but the Air is an absolute pleasure to use all-around. Really fast too. Also, you don't need to worry about viruses on a Mac. They do happen but they're so few and far apart that the chance of her computer being infected is negligible.

    8-core SB-E ES Testing & Overclocking

    I tried to run PPD numbers but as I said, I was getting 1 hour frame times on P7903. Something was seriously wrong with F@H compatibility. But I didn't have the energy to diagnose it, I just wanted to take the thing apart. Sorry guys. I'd estimate it's about the same as a 2600k @ ~4.8GHz.

    FS: ASUS Sabertooth X79 Mobo (Like New)

    8-core SB-E ES Testing & Overclocking

    No, not at all, don't feel bad. Despite the disappointing overclocking, it was exciting to play with chips that won't be out for another few months. It's a whole world away from the heavily documented 3930K/etc. overclocking experience. And above all I was shocked at how cool they run despite...

    8-core SB-E ES Testing & Overclocking

    I like what our standards are for "OCing well" now. Remember when getting an i7 920 to 4GHz was something to be proud of? On SB/SB-E you're virtually guaranteed 4.5GHz with anything more than stock cooling.

    8-core SB-E ES Testing & Overclocking

    I can see that being true. Although I got Cinebench and LinX to run at 108BCLK, F@H gave me strange results. I was getting 1 hour frame times on a P7903 even though all 16 threads were loaded... However, in a Tom's Hardware article about X79 they were able to hit 134BCLK at 125 strap with...

    8-core SB-E ES Testing & Overclocking

    Nope, 2011 is different because it has straps which keep the RAM and PCIE from going out of spec. So the BCLK range is like 100-110 (100 strap), 117-133 (125 strap), an so on. Divide BCLk by strap to get PCIE bus frequency. As long as its between 90-110 it's usually good. Yes indeed it is :D...

    Nope, I went as low as 19x125 (2.4GHz) and it still wouldn't POST. However I'm curious what would happen at 166 strap...

    8-core SB-E ES Testing & Overclocking

    As some of you know (if you followed the eBay brag thread) I snagged a couple of octocore SB-E Xeons for $300 a pop. After a frightening motherboard accident involving 50 or so bent pins, I finally have the system up and running. I'm working on overcloking it, although I haven't been extremely...

    Yeah that would be killer if they could be OC'ed. Not sure about the 2p thing though, gotta wait for boards to come out. Also, this is intersting. Nehalem 8-cores for $70...

    eBay Hardware Brag Thread

    Hahaha, no worries, we may be able to work out a deal. Not 100% sure I'm keeping them. I emailed the seller to see if I can find a compatible board--I want to test if they have any headroom for OCing.
