    opinion check : clueless newbie or scam?

    I just had killerbee247 PM me informing me that he was scammed by the same guy. He is in the process of contesting the charges with his credit card company and they had asked he provide them with any evidence he found of similar incidents. So I sent him a copy of the same PM I sent Lethal...

    Is there anything I can do to cover the extra cost, and/or ensure your security as the seller - to ship to Canada? I'm interested in a second 7800GT to go with mine, and yours is near identical (mine's a 515 revision). I keep coming across threads that have perfect cards at reasonable...

    Yeah, Lethal had just PM'd me asking for any info I had on the guy, and that he was suspected of PM scamming.

    Is there anything I can do for verification or your security to get you to be willing to ship to Canada, with me covering the extra shipping costs? I'm very interested in the 7800GT, as it's nearly identical to my existing 515 variant - so I can either give SLI a try or use it for effective...

    opinion check : clueless newbie or scam?

    'Just next door' really means an 8-10 hour drive. I'd spend more than $220 I'm sure. I am going to call him tomorrow, I just wanted to get a bit of feedback on other peoples feel for the matter first.

    opinion check : clueless newbie or scam?

    I posted a thread in FS/T today to see if anyone had a video card for sale that met my needs. I also replied to a handful of threads with offers to sell, from the past few days. Amongst various PM conversations I was hold, I got one from a guy named ' jthriller '; I asked him some...

    FS: 6800gs

    As per our PM conversation, I've paid you $110 for the card+shipping+insurance. You can let me know if the shipping or insurance with USPS (please, not UPS or Fedex no matter how tempting it is) comes to more than that.

    FS: 6800gs

    UPS is a bad idea, they charge a unilateral fee on anything coming over the border. Basically just go to your post office, declare the card value at $100 and insure it for that amount (likely $5-8 USD for shipping total for card with no box/manuals/cables with insurance). So I'll up my...

    If you don't mind me asking, screwed how? I'd pay a bit extra for USPS shipping with insurance - and then any responsibility is off your shoulders once you leave the post office.

    I'll offer $105 USD if you'll ship to Canada (S7K 3B9). Paypal funds.

    FS: Leadtek GeForce 6800 GT PCI-E

    Would you be willing to sell it for $100 shipped to Canada (postal code S7K 3B9)? It's usually only $3-5 more than domestic US shipping when I have things sent up to me.

    WTB : Any NVIDIA PCIe Video Card (6600gt or better

    I need a second card, so figured I'd see if anyone had an older 6600GT or better they're looking to clear out. I live in Canada, but I promise it won't be more than $3-5 extra to ship to me, it always is. Paypal payment, liquid funds in the account. I'll even consider sale offers of...

    Bought a Celeron M 1.5ghz Notebook - Ram speed shows 100mhz 1:1

    There's no preloaded stuff as the machine came with no OS and I used the Pro license from what used to be her old desktop. There's some of the Acer power managment stuff in place just for behavioral changes when AC's unplugged and it drops to battery - but othewrise nothing much extra (daemon...

    Anti-Overclocker's thoughts

    So take his thoughts and post them on a forum such as SH/SC on Somethingawful or the like - where you have a wider base of interests both - including those both for and against OC'ing computer hardware. I'm sure int he end even the naysayers will side with the logical facts that we've discussed...

    Anti-Overclocker's thoughts

    The problem with knee-jerk replies like this (not meaning to pick on you) but the rampant synthetic benchmark results spewing out 'oh so why did my [insert benchmark here] go up when I overclocked' doesn't really help matters. The really rabid anti-anything folks will always have a (typically...

    super quiet fan/heatsink combo

    Don't vote for a fan you have not tried. I had an original series Arctic Cooler 64 which was a great little cooler - and nice and quite. The next revision was noiser and less effective (the pro revision) so your LGA version is by no means a direct comparison to the current revision A64 models.

    My AMD Overclock

    Your HTT is equivlant to what was the FSB on older architechtures. Your FSB / HTT is what directly affects your CPU clock speed. 10mhz on the CPU will add more performance to your machine than 1mhz on RAM. Therefore getting the best of both worlds - absolute BEST CPU overclock then going...

    My AMD Overclock

    I would dare say that whomever told you 1:1 was a bad idea, was misinformed or working with older/different architechtures and hardware. The A64 memory controller is within the CPU itself - therefore any changes to the HTT (FSB) directly affects the speed at which it communicates to the...

    P180 cooling optimization

    I was able to do 42C load temps with dual instances of Prime on my Opteron 165 running at stock values with just the Scythe Ninja passively cooling. Drops to about 34-36C when you add the 120mm. I'm also sure I need to re-apply the AS5 and reseat the cooler. I also have a 120mm intake...

    The best air cooler

    'Best' is much too subjective to give a firm answer to your question. There's a sticky in this very forum with reviews and advice on each current revision cooler. My personal recommendation is a Scythe Ninja if it'll fit your case. Otherwise XP-120 if it'll fit your board, or SI-120 if...

    Opteron 165 CCBWE 0550 UPMW - Ongoing Results.

    If you haven't already - give it more juice. The 'default' or 'auto' setting on the chip for vcore will vary between 1.300v and 1.350v depending on the motherboard. I would start by forcing 1.350 at 290x9 with your ram on a divider to keep it at or below 250mhz (I think the 5:6 divider gave...

    My AMD Overclock

    Need to know a whole lot more information about what you're running before anyone can tell you if that's 'good' (very subjective term by the way) or not. What OS? What Motherboard? What CPU? What socket type for CPU? What precise make/model/timing ram? How have you benchmarked your...

    Opteron 165 CCBWE 0550 UPMW - Ongoing Results.

    Yeah that's the same ram as what I'm using. I'm starting to doubt my statement that I've got it running at 260mhz 2.8v simply because I'm getting Prime errors on Large FTT's but not on Small FTT's (I'm not 100% sure on this yet - need 12hrs of priming on Small FTT's to prove my theory). If...

    super quiet fan/heatsink combo

    Another vote for a Scythe Ninja - which I've used with both the Nexus 120mm super-quiet fans as well as Antec TriCool 120mm fans (at lowest rpm setting). Both are inaudible over the other noises in the case (3 other 120mm fans, plus 3 HD's). All in all very quiet.

    SP2004 vs Prime95 v24.14

    I just don't get it. As per the specs in my sig, I've currently got my Opty 165 at 289x9 and have tried anything from 1.275-1.350v for vcore - and always the same results. Running SP2004 at any priority (1 through 10) will make it a full 12hrs stable without erroring out. But running...

    Opteron 165 CCBWE 0550 UPMW - Ongoing Results.

    Assuming we really do have identical ram, you may want to set the ram to it's actual timings and not what is being (mis)detected by SPD. I've got CPC disabled for 2T timing (remember, A64's are not latency sensitive like previous Athlons or P4's) and 3-4-4-8. Looks like I also had to bump my...

    Opteron 165 CCBWE 0550 UPMW - Ongoing Results.

    I'm VERY happy with the OCZ Gold. I haven't really stressed it to see how far I can push it (although I tried 290 with both 1:1 and 9:10 dividers - even up to 2.9v which the ram is warrantied to, and couldn't get it stable). I ended up being more than happy with a 260mhz on the ram with a 5:6...

    Opteron 165 CCBWE 0550 UPMW - Ongoing Results.

    What board are you getting again? My DFI Ultra-D has had no issues with PCIE or SATA locks - so I've never had to cross that bridge. That may be what's holding me back from breaking 295-300 HTT - but other than that, zero issues.

    Opteron 165 CCBWE 0550 UPMW - Ongoing Results.

    I would almost bet money on it. There's very very few 165's that have not hit 2600mhz (assuming there's no roadblock in other hardware preventing it from getting there). 2700-2800mhz is just icing on the cake insofar as I'm concerned. I would say 290HTTx9 on a board that supports it (DFI...

    3dmark06 was about 4171 with the GPU at stock clocks (haven't even started OC'ing that yet). Haven't done pi or aqua yet - as I'm pushing for 24hr prime stable on the chip at the lowest voltage it'll take (down to 2.96v vcore at 289x9 - 3hrs in on prime). Once I get the lowest vcore, which...
