  2. Should be safe, fsb does not effect voltage as far as I know, worst that can happen if too high pc will not boot or will bluescreen during use, then it's time to lower it.

  4. It will not damage the motherboard. I believe the FSB is the communication speed between the Northridge and the CPU. Just like anything, if you apply enough voltage it will kill that part. I really don't remeber what the stock voltage was or where to change it. We are talking pre 2008. Over 12 years.
  5. Hello, My question is simple. Please disregard the impact high fsb has on ram(will use a divider) and tell me if a high fsb will damage my DFI NF4 mobo itself. Is it safe to be running 270fsb 24/7? thanks iosman

    It seems that the manufactures are all doing a cost cutting measure. One example is the MSI RX 5700xt was reviewed by another outlet and they showed how the thermal paste job was sub par and thermal pads used only covered 1/3 to 1/2 of the memory modules to interface with the heat spreader. Which they choked it up to being a Money saving measured as in not wanting to retool. I am not sure the accuracy, they also made it clear that it was speculation. I got a speculation for yah guys. If you want to compete in the market. Its gotta be able to OC. I could oc a freaking GTX 480 and that in 2 way SLI on air with the reference model cooler. And now this one wont OC because it cant handle the heat...... No excuses, That's just poor manufacturing. But if you are not going to OC or anything then you will be peachy. A friend of mine just got one of these by my suggestion based on the best BANG for buck. He is super stoked. But in the same right I would not be pleased at all.

    Thanks! I agree it is a shame about the cooler. My thinking cost was the main factor. But I dont have any real sources to back this claim up. Just an observation. Looks nice though. I only reviewed the PowerColor 5700 Red Devil so far, but all these custom cards show off what AMD has done with Navi. It brings back some competition against NVIDIA. I miss the days when both companies released cards every 6 months. Hurt my wallet a lot!

    Uploading part 12 now, and it will be live at the usual time. Did give a quick look at the map editor that arrived with Beta 3, but really not much. Did a couple older maps with the new upgrades and definitely enjoyed the changes with the new beta version.

    Barton 2600+ 50oc Idle Temp?

    if memory serves...with the right board that will run at a 400fsb with the same style of ram. Volcano coolers werent the best as we used heatpipe coolers. I think I still have one from socket A days. I believe it was a Thermalright cooler.
  17. Today Stardock has released Beta 3 for Siege of Centauri, the tower defense set in the Ashes of the Singularity universe and using its engine. This allows it to support even tens of thousands of units. Released to Steam Early Access back in April, it has now received its Beta 3 update, and with it the Scenario Workshop, allowing players to create custom maps, as well as an Endless Mode, and more. If you are interested in the Scenario Workshop and potentially making your own maps, a good place to start would be the Modder's Guide. There are three maps available in Endless Mode, offering their own challenges. Covey has five paths leading from the North to your colony while Mendel is a large map with plenty of room, but there will also be a variety of attackers to deal with. Ulrath has dispersed resources, so you may need to decide which resources are most important to defend. Also part of the update are a couple new towers and plenty more enemies. The new towers are the Mortar, a cheap AOE tower, and the Nova Tower that has long range and an AOE attack, but its high damage is limited to shields. Hopefully they and the older towers will be enough to handle the seven new enemies coming, such as the Nest of the Queen and Heart of the Phoenix, which are both dreadnoughts. New upgrades for towers have also arrived, allowing you to increase tower effectiveness and customize them to your playstyle. Everything has also been rebalanced, and the difficulty will also impact the number of enemies that spawn. Towers have been given the ability to attack outside of their range, when an enemy that was being tracked exits range. This is to prevent towers from constantly trying to aim at enemies that move out of range before the tower attacks. There have been a number of fixes and UI changes too, including some fairly useful changes too, like removing upgrades from a tower when you unequip it, and equipping towers when you attach an upgrade to them. While Siege of Centauri is still in Early Access, it is $9.99 but its final version is expected to cost $14.99. Source: Stardock Back to original news post

    Need help flashing 2070 Max Q please

    NVIDIA was encrypted the bios. You can no longer edit tdp, clocks or anything else in the table. I wrote a guide to flash your card to a different vendor which "should" have higher TDP and stock clocks. However, I dont know that card brand you have. So I have no clue if a flash would brick the card. https://www.overclockersclub.com/guides/how_to_flash_rtx_bios/

  22. While most people likely associated G.Skill with its high performance memory, the company makes gaming peripherals as well, and has released a new mechanical keyboard to consider. The KM360 is a tenkeyless keyboard using Cherry MX mechanical switches, and by using wear-proof ABS plastic for the double injection keycaps and solid brushed aluminum top-plate, this keyboard should be quite durable. It has only white LED backlighting, which may be good or bad depending on your tastes, and uses a detachable USB Type-C cable to connect. Cherry MS Red switches are used for all of the keys except the space key that has a Cherry MX Black beneath it. Both the Red and Black switches are linear with a 2 mm actuation point, but the Black has a greater operating force. The white LEDs have five brightness levels, 0%, 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100%, so you can adjust the illumination to match the situation. The KM360 is available now in Black and White with an MSRP of $49.99. Source: Press Release Back to original news post

  24. Releasing December 10 on PC, you can now pre-order MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries on the Epic Games Store. This is the first single-player, campaign-focused entry in the series in over 17 years, and you can put down $49.99 for the Standard Edition or $59.99 for the Deluxe Edition starting today. The Standard Edition includes the game and a PDF of the game manual. The Deluxe Edition instead offers a digital game manual, providing a comprehensive breakdown of mechanics and features, a digital technical BattleTech manual, the game's soundtrack, and a 4K desktop pack. The technical manual has imagery and information about the equipment and Mechs you can encounter in the game. In the game, players will build, manage, and guide their own unit of mercenaries through a multi-year campaign set during the Third and Fourth Succession Wars. You can play the missions alone, with AI-controlled pilots, or with up to three friends via co-op play. The situations you will be in offer no perfect solutions as you select the contracts to accept and how to balance resources between repairs and upgrades.

  25. The first story DLC for Metro Exodus is out now on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. This DLC is set a year prior to the main game's events and follows the journey of Colonel Khlebnikov during the final days of Novosibirsk. A year later, Colonel Miller retraces this path. Aiding his journey is a new weapon for the game, the flamethrower. It needs to be pumped up to maintain its power, but when it comes to lighting up a room or mutants, it gets the job done nicely. Revealed yesterday by NVIDIA, The Two Colonels DLC has had its ray-traced global illumination technology expanded to include area lights, point lights, and emissive lights. To get the DLC you can purchase it on its own or the Expansion pass on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Though the base game was removed from the Steam store for the Epic Games Store shortly before release, you can still purchase the DLC and pass from Steam, as Steam pre-orders were still honored.

  26. Last year Stardock released the Heroes of Star Control: Origins DLC for Galactic Civilizations III and on August 27 it is getting the very appropriate follow-up, Villains of Star Control: Origins DLC. With this comes four new playable races, with their own abilities, ship styles, and theme music. First up we have The Measured that are sentient coral that were modified to serve as bureaucrats. In addition to the game's Bureaucrat ability, they also receive Mitotic, granting free administrators when colonizing new worlds. Next are the Pamyst, the galaxy's most polite cannibals that have the goal of bringing class and refinement to the otherwise messy galaxy. The Xraki are quite different, being fanatical monsters once used as shock troops, before being exiled to a different dimension. Lastly we have the Scryve, a people that were once idealistic and hopeful, but came to be twisted with corruption. Unlike the violent and intolerant Drengin in Galactic Civilizations III, the Scrye Empire is civilized, thoughtful, and methodical, while still being evil. They will have the Conquerors ability and the new Imperial ability. This new ability grants bonus health to ships in their territory, based on how many colonies have a zone of control contiguous with their home planet. The Villains of Star Control: Origins DLC will be available on August 27 from Stardock, Steam, and GOG for $5.99. Source: Stardock Back to original news post
  27. Iron Harvest is a real-time strategy game set in an alternate, diesel-punk version of the 1920s, and today Deep Silver and KING Art Games have announced its release date, and provided a new trailer for it. The world is based on the work of Jakub Rozalzki, a Polish artist, and players will get to enter it on September 1, 2020 when it launches for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. If you cannot wait until then, there is the trailer and screenshots below to give you a taste of the setting.     Source: Press Release Back to original news post
