    ssd setup/tweaks question

    i just got a 120gb ssd (patriot inferno), and was wondering what kind of things there are to consider (if any) when setting it up, or any tweaks to make? it's going to be replacing my current 7200rpm hard drive as my os/programs drive. currently running 64 bit windows 7 ultimate. also, would...

    Recommend a good SSD for a beginner..

    he's just saying this is in the wrong subforum, memory refers to ram so an ssd question should probably be in the storage forum, not here.

    ati overdrive causing tearing with dual monitors

    this worked! thanks! i was trying the ccc profile one, i'd changed all three memory speed settings to the same (100000 for 5850), but it was still changing it even though as far as i could tell i'd activated the profile *confused* but simply disabling hardware acceleration in flash makes it so...

    ati overdrive causing tearing with dual monitors

    i haven't disabled overdrive since i leave my computer on all the time so i figure the throttling down of the core speed would be good for saving power / less heat when it's not being used for gaming. i'll try editing the ccc profile first, i'll look into the msi ab if that doesnt work. it's...

    ati overdrive causing tearing with dual monitors

    i have a 5850. i just set up my second monitor, and now whenever i load a page that has a flash video or close the page (youtube videos etc) the screen tears. after some searching i found out it has to do with ati overdrive, and it happens whenever the video card's memory clock speed gets...

    Counter-Strike Source on-line tournament and hacks

    ya, find scrims at sourcescrim, advertise for cal-bad. if you're consistently winning, start looking for better teams (cal-o / cal-o+) etc. if not, then stay there. dont just play dust2, enter cal, theres plenty of horrible teams in cal-o, and it's more satisfying winning a match in a more...

    what does cpu/10 mean for fsb:dram?

    i used ntune to auto oc my system cuz i was lazy, and i was looking at cpuz in the memory tab. the fsb:dram says cpu/10; i thought it was supposed to be some kind of divider like 2:3? what does the cpu/10 mean? currently running at 230fsb x10 for cpu. is it 1:1 or like 4:5 or what? thanks.

    Thoughts on build?

    GET THE NT06 i can't stress this enough. get it. it runs passive, yet is still the best cooler available for the silverstone. just make sure your psu has a bottom draw 120mm fan.

    yeah, you can set it to load a profile when it gets to a certain temperature, too.

    Finally - A Fragbox for my collection!

    what's the size of this case like? same as the sg01 (not including handle)?
  14. S


    i used the coarse tune with ntune, my computer's still fine, nothing wrong, it put the fsb at 230 and i'm assuming is running a divider on the ram (otherwise i have some pretty hardcore value ram), i forgot what it set the video card to, but it gave a noticeable difference (around 70fps average...

    is there anything for $50 better than a x800 vanilla?

    i'm looking for a budget video card, i'm coming from the integrated 6150 graphics, so basically anything's an upgrade. what's the best card i can get for $50? i could get a x800 vanilla off of my friend for that much; is there a better option? thanks.

    if your sff is a sg01-e with a bottom-draw 120mm fan psu, then the silverstone nt06 is the way to go.

    mine was failing more than that; i couldn't even hit esc to see my boot options or [del? i forgot] to get into the bios. it started hanging before it recognized the cpu at all.

    on topic of things causing the bios to hang: when i installed vista rc2 on my second hard drive, whenever i restarted my computer it wouldn't post. if i turned it off and back on then it'd be fine though. scared the shit out of me when it was doing the last couple restarts for installing it...

    "Will it fit?" FAQ

    anyone know what the rumor is for the r600 card length? if it's too long to fit into my sg-01, i will be one sad panda :(
  31. S

    So nVidia is completely unchallenged this generation?

    ati should just glue two x1950xtx's together, call it a x1950xtx2 and call it a day until r600 is released.

    Which card can handle 2x Dell 3007WFP?

    iirc, the 7950gx2 acts like sli. so no dual monitors for you.

    Which card can handle 2x Dell 3007WFP?
