    AMD to release 3.5GHz 990 by the end of the year.

    I would never consider buying an AMD chip right now. First thing they are one gen behind intel. Second thing I am enthiusiast and I like everything what's fastest. AMD might be a good solution for your company, but not for single PC user as me. There is nothing wrong in paying a bit extra for...

    Asus P5Q WS clock speed issues, speed step?

    That's extremely good when cpu is OC'ed. My current e6600 (oldie), is running at 3.33Ghz under load, when idling only stock 2.4 Ghz. I wonder if there is any software which could take it even slower. Any suggestions?

    Asus p5q pro + ddr2 1200

    I was thinking about air, there are couple of excellent coolers like TRUE or Megahalem, but h2o has better cooling performance, i want to reach 4.5 ~ 4.4 just for the sake of it. The Q9650 you mentioned is a strong & fairly cheap PCU I'm considering to go exactly that way. As for 6Ghz+...

    Asus p5q pro + ddr2 1200

    I will be upgrading my old 6600 c2d to 8600 c2d or middle range quad. That baby will get plenty of water to keep her cool. Watercooling is the answer :). I should hit 4ghz+ with good 4GB 1066 no problem on water, at least that's what i think:) My only concern is if i decide to go more than...

    Asus p5q pro + ddr2 1200

    I know what you mean with dual gpu 4850x2, sticking with p45 and not paying extra money for full speed crossfire on x48 . The thing is my friend is upgrading his PC from 2x 4850 (1Gb+1Gb) and wants to sell them to me for less than £100. Bargain i say:) I don't know what is the improvement...

    Asus p5q pro + ddr2 1200

    I am building i7 right now, and also upgrading my old PC. That will be the second PC for mini-lan parties in my home & for kind of semi-extreme OC. I want good & cheap OC'able board and reliable memories. As for PCU i would like to hit 4Ghz + mark for 24/7 use. As for MB, i would like P45 or...

    Asus p5q pro + ddr2 1200

    Howdy! Is it worth to spend a bit more moneys on that one, instead of modest ddr2 800~1066? My old PC is going to be a second one for mini-Lan party to train 1v1 (RTS,FPS) , and my desire is to make OC monster which will be pretty much on pair with new i7 920 build ( i want it to run modest...

    Intel 920 and 1600 RAM Triple CHannel Questions

    Alright i am completly novice at it but i don't think you can run 12GB using all slots on full speed & factory timings. I do think that those settings are only valid if you run 3x sticks. This is why your system is slowing them down. The best bet is to wait until someone with more knowledge...

    Should I step up to GTX-285 from GTX-280?

    Alright, that is different question, why don't you check [H] review on GTX285. They are pretty OC'able. If your PSU likes SLI then go for it. Regarding to step-up process, i have no experience with it so i dunno what kind of horrow you can expect. In the end of the day it's there for a...

    ATI Drivers Still Archaic

    "developing any kind of software is time consuming develop, test, fix test and release within 1 month is not an easy task :P so that basically means, each driver update is really a patch for the last update!" I agree with you on this, completely...but shouldn't they slow down a bit...

    i7 + DDR3 2 Options.. (Easy Question needs Straight up Answer)

    Stop right now! You don't have 64 bit operating system! If you buy 6GB of ram then you would be able to see 4GB total(or less correct me if i'm wrong)...then graphic cards sharing memory pool with ram as when you add for example gtx280 you get even less RAM memory..upgrade to Vista 64...

    Upgrade path: tri-sli or cpu upgrade?

    I completely agree with other people, there is no need to upgrade if you have so powerful pc, you wont get any bang for the buck because replacements you are talking about wont give you that much performance to even consider spending that much money. Get yourself nice cooling system, nice...

    Are memory timings REALLY that important?

    I found this very interesting, so tighter memory timings don't affect gaming as much. That means i can go cheaper with DDR3 more much difference is between ddr3 1333 and for example ddr3 wise of course. Should i go with slower DDR3's if all i want to do...

    In the end of the day it's all about how they treat you, CS should build confidence & trust between them and customers.
