    Re: My rig and overclocking

    I remember those coolers but I can't remember how well they performed.

    What are your current idle and full load temperatures at its current speed?
  2. Re: Trouble overclocking Fx 8350 with Sabertooth 990fx and Vengeance 1866mhz

    On that cooler, I wouldn't even bother with overclocking. The idle is a tad high to begin.

    How hot does it get under something like Intel Burn Test? Use HWMonitor to check the CPU (not the core...
  3. Re: Trouble overclocking Fx 8350 with Sabertooth 990fx and Vengeance 1866mhz

    You want to turn the turbo mode off as it is going to cause you no end of problems at higher clocks.

    What sort of temperatures were you hitting at that voltage/speed?

    What cooler do you have?

  4. Re: Trouble overclocking Fx 8350 with Sabertooth 990fx and Vengeance 1866mhz

    I have a Sabertooth in the post somewhere (it's coming from a friend for me to prepare it for our sub-zero OC session in a few weeks) and an FX-8350 upstairs. I will try to give you a hand if you...
  5. Re: Asus New Z87 Boards with new color scheme

    ASRock in disguise? I really don't know what they were thinking with this one. It's not exactly an appealing thing unless you're a kid after some bling perhaps.

  6. Re: Intel's 4th Generation Core Processors (Haswell) launch date officially revealed

    It's a lower TDP version of the 4770(K). You also have the 4770T I believe which is only 45w.
  7. Re: FX-8350 with Corsair H110 and Asus Crosshair Formula V

    Can I ask how warm the ambient temperature is? I can put 1.5v through my chip at 5GHz on a D14 and it doesn't get too hot running wPrime etc. which stresses it to near 100% loads all the time.

  8. Re: ASUS ROG RAIDR Pictured Some More, Coming This May

    Yeah I've heard 120GB and 240GB figures too. The read/writes aren't great considering it's like two drives in RAID0. :(

    Re: OCing Memory

    Can I ask why you wish to do this? It usually yields very little performance gains in terms of real-world speed.

    Overclocking your memory is just like overclocking any other part of your system....

    Re: AMD 5GHz Stock Chip?

    It will be a PD chip running at 5GHz, which will cost say $800. An i7 will beat it at slower speeds and it costs 1/3 of the price. The only place it would have its advantages is where eight cores are...
  11. Re: Need Help on detecting Hard disk via USB

    I guess a different USB cable and trying to see if it displays in the BIOS would rule that one out. Good thinking, Cyber. :D

    I'm honestly stumped on this one. It's super unlikely that both of the external enclosures are broken although it is a possibility. Do...

    Re: pc turns off after playing pc games

    I'd get the CX600M if you really had to but I'd rather get a TX (non modular) or HX (modular) or an AXi (fully modular + platinum rated) because from what I know, they're slightly better constructed...
  14. Re: Need Help on detecting Hard disk via USB

    Maybe it isn't installing a driver for it. Are all of the drivers for your motherboard properly installed? How many other USB ports have you tried?

    Re: Vram

    The 860w is great. It's still overkill, but at least it will power a second GPU should you wish to add one in the future.

    Those PSUs are rated at 860w but will easily cope with 950w. Absolutely...

    Is it the ZX series by any chance? Mine blew on an APU rig at stock settings. I read somewhere that they were discontinued due to being unreliable but I am not sure how true that is.

    Are you planning on getting another GPU in the future? A 650W Corsair (or equivalent) is more than enough for any single GPU on the market.

    Re: Vram

    Uh ooh. I dislike OCZ. One bad experience with their top-end model put me off.

    I personally wouldn't do it but others may say otherwise.

    If you're unsure, it might be time to upgrade that PSU...

    You'll definitely need to upgrade your monitor to get the most out of that card as at those resolutions you're heavily CPU bottlenecked. However, you said it is the next upgrade after the GPU so I'd...

    As said above, it's just the AMD cards that seem to do better in this application compared to NVIDIA.

    Re: pc turns off after playing pc games

    How hot is warm to the touch? I know I cooked an Antec 620w to the point where it shut down due to excessive loads on the 12v rails (heavy overclocking).

    Do you know what brand that 400w PSU is?...

    How does the sticker just come off? They're usually stuck on and a right pain to get off. :P
