What kind of setup would you recommend for me? (at a complete loss)

25 October 2010 - 08:41 PM

My G35 just broke after about a year of near-constant use. I've been looking for something to replace it with, but after reading so many conflicting reviews, as well as hearing about how "X.1 surround in headsets is just a gimmick", etc., I'm at a complete loss. Now the Astro A40 looks good, but its price is a bitter pill to swallow, I'm also not sure if the quality will be proportional to the price, or if it will meet all of my expectations.

Which brings me to my question: I'm looking for high quality sound with good audio positioning for gaming, I've tried the logitech g35 and the tritton ax360, but so far both have disappointed me. What the hell can I do/buy to get what I want here, without resorting to speakers? Do I need a soundcard for that, and if so, which one should I get?

Thanks in advance :)

i7 temperature question

27 April 2010 - 12:07 AM

I'm shooting for 4GHz with my i7-920, I've got it at 3.8 GHz right now and when I run prime95 the temperatures normally range from high 60s to low 70s. When I'm running a game though they don't exceed the mid 50s. Is this a safe range, and based on what I've said so far do I have much headroom left? VCORE is 1.2 BTW.

***EDIT***

To rephrase the question, what would be the highest prime95 temperature you'd feel safe running with 24/7?
