    Re: HY810 and HY880 Compound Review

    Thanks for the preview / review! I read it with great interest. Back when several of us here tested IC Diamond (an excellent TIM), I found that TX-4 was a bit better over all for the small...

    Re: im back!

    Very glad to hear you are back in the world again!!! Maybe don't set such a high overclock on your ticker this time - easy does it.

    Re: Need some help with i7 920 OC

    I suggest you read the Core i7 4Ghz Club & Overclocking Guide. It will walk you through the steps for achieving a viable overclock, which is best done methodically rather than just plugging in some...

    Re: Need some help with i7 920 OC

    If even one Worker stops, then your overclock is not stable. Yes, the other Workers may continue to run, but the test has failed. It means further tuning and testing is needed.

    Also, running...

    Re: Noctua NH-D15 CPU Cooler Review

    Thanks for the review! Am wondering how far I could push my i7 920 with one of these.
  8. Re: SO... how 'bout dem new Noctua fans that actually LOOK good!?

    I had an extreme dislike for the coloring of the originals, and so would never consider them. Now I'll be willing to include the new ones in spec comparisons for future needs.

    Re: advice on o'clocking this i7 extreme

    4.2 GHz is the sweet spot. Get stable there and you are golden. Pushing to a higher overclock can be entertaining and provide a great feeling of accomplishment - realize though that the gains are...

    Sticky: Re: Core i7 4Ghz Club & Overclocking Guide

    Yes, the i7 975 Extreme is an *excellent* cpu for gaming. Your 4.0 GHz is a good solid overclock for the i7 9xx family; you will likely not notice a difference if you increase it to 4.3 GHz, but go...

    Re: Asus Xonar Essence STX Distortion?

    Try setting the gain down one notch (or two). Click the "HP Advance Setting" and drop it from Extra High to High, or High to Normal; S.O.L. if already at Normal. ;)

    Yep, I have one of those...

    I use it for an x58 system and an x79. The key feature for me is fan control, with a user defined profile (which can't be done in the BIOS itself). The idea being there is no need to have fans...
