    Z87 Chipset and NVidia Surround with SLI

    I've been experiencing some issues trying to enable 2d surround with 2-way SLI. NVidia drivers seems to refuse to allow me to do this, when it worked perfectly fine on my old setup (X79 with i7 3930k). I have another thread here documented...

    DFI NF4 Lanparty SLI-DR Expert

    So I just mounted a Zalman northbridge cooler and found my 7300LE doesn't fit in the 1st PCI-E 16x slot anymore. Incidentally I put it in the 2nd PCI-E slot. So my question is what speed is the second slot operating at when I put a video card there? I've looked around and DFI seems to say...

    8800GTX Heatsink Mounting Holes

    Got a question for your 8800GTX owners. Are the mounting holes the same on the 8800GTX as the 7800GTX series? If so, then I'm assuming the Danger Den Maze4 GPU Waterblocks will fit on them then? Thanks!

    Quick question for all you macbook owners.

    Boot Camp Trial Expiry Date

    I was wondering what the Boot Camp Trial expiry date is? My dad's considering a Macbook and it would suck that come January we'd have to pony over a few hundred dollars to pick up Leopord in order to continue using Boot Camp.

    3dmark 2k5 and 2k6 Crashing

    So yesterday I finally got my watercooling done on my rig (see sig.) and decided to try to overclock my 7800GTX's. But before that, I decided to run 3dmark 2k5 and 2k6 to get a reference to what scores I'm getting at stock. To my suprise, my computer keeps crashing out between Test 1 and...

    Mounting Maze4 GPU to 7800GTX with 2 bolts

    I recently got a Maze4 GPU block that had the nVidia mounting holes drilled out. Unfrotunately I can't seem to find nuts for these bolts (they're so damned small). Anyways, I figured I can use the other two nuts it came with and secure them on the back of the top. This would mean however I can...

    Just got a pair of 7800GTX OC and would like to overclock it more. Question is using coolbits and setting the hardware frequency, does it overclock both cards at the same time? or is there an option to overclock each individually? Also, Ive heard that you can have asynchronous clock speeds...

    Which motherboard?

    I recently bought an Asus A8N-SLI Premium and so far its been running well. Overclocked my 3800+ to 2.7ghz @ 1.5 (max volts) which is the maximum this CPU can do (tested it with my NF4 SLI and no amounts of voltage increased the clocks). Now it seems the A8N-SLI doesn't seem to like 280+ HTT...

    It seems I can get access to a Opteron 144 for $169 CDN (same price as Venice 3000+) and with the impending price increase, I'm thinking maybe I should pick one up. Now I'm hoping I'd hit over 3ghz with this chip but what's the likelihood of that at this point? I figure my Venice 3000+ right now...

    Now I remember reading somewhere that haveing 2gb of ram, even in a 2x1gb configuration will put more stress on the memory controller thus limiting the max overclock possible on my Venice. Now I was wondering if anybody has confirmed this? Reason I ask is my CPU is stuck at 2.7ghz right now...
