    Drm And Alike.

    Okey, this is my first post here, since i orginally came from DIY-street. Anywayz, I heard about the mass effect/spore securom protection, and what people reacted most on was the activation, who in the world doesnt have internet? If you guys aint familiar with its protection methods, let me explain it, I'm posetive to some, and very negative to other ones. 5 Installs b4 contact of EA is needed Every 10th day need activation to ensure its not shared on the internet. Most likely a DVD protection( got to play with DVD) And probaly other stuffs. Okey, what I'm against. The 5 installs only, and the DVD protection thingy, first of all, i dont got any dvd room, i loan when im doing a totally clean install on my computer, in fact i got 6 computers without a DVD room, and my router(linux based) got the dvd room which i loan when needed on the other computers. I'm posetive to the activation method, maybe people start buying some games, and it will make it harder, I will not say I don't do piracy, cause I do, if I had bought all of the games I play, i wouldnt have any money left for living at all( 500 gb of iso's) But i still have bought 40 games since november last year, which is alot of games aswell. In fact, I think the online activation method is the only one that can keep people away from piracy, and all other methods seems to be bull crap. As an example, A friend bought Bioshock, looked fancy, I wanted it, i simply took some regs from his system, copied the folder, and off i went, even though it had a 3 installs only protection. waste. DVD protection, cracks, often limits to only singleplayer, and is a pain in the . to get a new one each time update comes out. if more people buy games, maybe prices fall. Anywayz, i will always be a little thief when it comes to software and alike, I simply cannot afford everything, so its really tempting to get everything for free, But also like to support game devs. And when I own something, i would really like to have it on multiply devices, songs on multiply computers, and alike. My gf does abit of gaming aswell, so i got each game 2 times, and games we play online together ive actually bought 2 of hehe. but thats me.
  2. Well, I want more ROPS 16 isnt enough, and well, if they have also increased shader clock, this is going to be a kickass ati lineup
  3. Either psu or mobo. Smells like psu maybe, i wont tell more than NOT CPU. Good luck.
  4. My mobo gets sent from the US the 15th of may, lets see how it is, DFI 790FX M2R(The best dfi 790FX board) ITs prolly better than my gigabyte.
  5. Ehm, I was doing some OC on a system @ TG(BIIIG LAN) 5500ppl, well, we used 2 PSU's, when both start at same time, and that not 2 psu's running the same VGA, there should not be any issue. I just have to use a green cable and make them start at same time and it should be sufficient I guess. You are true about the DC output diffrence. Anyway, There are Volt regulators and a power circuit on a videocard that gives the vga the voltage it requires and filters it. As long as the 2 powersupplies isnt connected paralell there should not be any issue, if i so want to do so, i should do manual adjustments to match the specs of both, which is VEERY hard, since no psu is alike another. It worked @ TG with TRISLI on a Qx9650 sys Dice, etc. 2x 850 watts odin psu's Anyways, this psu is daaarn quiet =) and stable, and looks darn nice.
  6. no need, got in contact with a retailer in US, getting my mobo @ just 225 usd =)
  7. Yeah, i want it badly, I need some retailer @ sub 240 usd to ship to Norway!. Please list any retailer YOU guys know that deals this motherboard.
  8. First psu came some days ago, and it does my system with another 3870X2, in fact, complete spider @ 3.1 ghz 880 mhz core and 1140 mhz memory on VGA's some + on vcore vga. 4GB of mushkin pc9200 @ 2.35 V @ 1150 mhz 5-4-4-12. 5 Hard drives, pump, and all the fans. And still didnt make the same noise as the ocz did with just 1 3870x2! I think im in love
  9. DO NOT BUY GIGABYTE! Why nvidia? got nvidia from b4, or is in 100% need of the nvidia opertunities, go nvidia. Otherwise i suggest 780G 790GX! from AMD. Cheap and fast chipsets. Well abit summerize: Nvidia chipsets for: Hybrid power Hybrid sli hybrid all the other crap lotsa users will never use. Amd for any1 else who just use a discrete card. For ones who are out for hybrid CF. And the other stuff like that. For the ones with tighter budget, and likes powerconsumtion numbers. 780A should be released by now NORWEGIAN "Ubekrefta 2008-06-01" Means: delivery date 6th of may 2008 (Not confirmed delivery date) So there you have it, already asus 780A have been around, i cannot see ANY other than that single board in norway, though look for you, since norway does more products than i see in US. PS. Norway got earlier releases on lots of stuff, like 3870X2, 790FX 780G and stuff like that, when its here, its not always released, nvidia stuff usually takes 2 weeks after release to get here, so i reccon, its already out.
  10. New parts, ive already had the silverstone part, i gotta clean abit now, to find the USB cable for my camera, cause i dont find it. Anyways, the system is daamn quiet, good voltages, and enough contacts. What it didnt deliver me, black Connectors(not too big deal) that everything was sleeved, a bigger deal. But i have some other priorities than just looks, i chosed a red one for 4 bucks more, cause i got red tubes, and CF system, and a little ati fanboy inside me. it looked nice anyways anyways ill try to get some pics, try to overclock when i dont have 12.68 V anymore.
  11. I got one, but gonna do 1 to start them both so green cable design is the way to go, ill come up with something fancy Concidering NO psu with good quality from any manufacture @ 1000 watt cost less than 2x 750 watts.
  12. hybrid CF i can give you Info about oc and alot, I do not have personal experience with this mobo. BUT, i know gigabyte doesnt have the best alt for chipset VGA oc. due to cooling, JWS or something have something better on that particular point Hybrid cf is giving 60% performance increase, clock the IGP abit, stock 500 can go to 950 i think. http://www.legitreviews.com/article/676/1/ http://www.tomshardware.com/2008/03/04/amd_780g_chipset/
  13. hmm, strange though, running water or ? . Cause my chipset with my fan is just 27 C idle and 30 load, 35 load OC. Anyways : update on power consumtion 790FX is 12 watts max. SB600/sb700/SB750 is diffrent(ONLY 780G uses SB700) and the VRM's is a huge power consumtioner aswell ^^ Anyways, AOD doesnt work with multi settings in bios, but with FSB, it should work with FSB i think, it doesnt with intel, i can run 2.6 ghz with stock voltage AND with cool n quiet =) Kinda funky, i dont need more than 2.6 ghz atm anyways, always nice to know i got 600 mhz more to get out of it when i need it!. Anyways, i'm getting stuff from my last order in 2-3 days now =) Silverstone CFP51 Samsung SpinPoint T166 500GB SATA2 MSI K8N NEO3-F, nForce4-4x,Socket-754(for my server =) since i killed my previous board cost me 15 usd DEMO used from komplett, so why not ^^ Ill show why i need the silverstone thing later on sometime, cause my comp looks ugly, once i open the stealth infront of my comp.
  14. well, my gf runs a 110 watts cpu, i do a 125 watts, her chipset is at lower temp Anyways the chipset is max 10 watts or so. 780 G with HD 3200 in the chip, is 18 watts. so its less than 18, 12 is what ive heard max. The heatpipes from VRM killing mine
  15. i gotta pay over 800 usd to get a silverstone 1200 watts, WHICH i wont do >_< Btw, i dont need any connections between the two psu's other than green. Which means, i wont break warranty, and not changing fans is also great, and i can use my system if 1 breaks, and RMA. Ill just use something to get contact fastened without making any physical damage. The 1k watts is more expensive than 2 power& pc cooling in denmark, woot, expensive. Also the toll, and also shipping which is about 200 noks 50 usd in shipping and about 100 usd in toll + the 460 usd for the psu ending at 610 usd.
  16. Still more expensive than 2. and prolly makes more noise, including 150 usd in "toll" and shipping from and outside country(isnt sold in norway)
  17. Anything on 750 Watts isnt enough. i wont do 4 rail or 6 rails, im currently maxing 3 of 4 rails, the 4th cant do anything else than run some drives. anyways, they aint hardwired together in parallell "meaning more power not voltage, they have to have same voltage to do that) meaning: i wont do it!. I wanna power 1 gfx on one psu aswell as mobo, other 1 gfx and hdd's and extra stuff. Lets do a sumup on all my stuff. Hdd uses 15 watts ? 8x 15W pump 15 watts 20 watt with the power module Fans 1 watt each 5 watts. Phenom @ 170 watts ? 2x 3870X2 @ 250 watts motherboard apporx 30-50 watts. where are we now. 845 should i have. This is overclocked numbers, anyways, i still havnt found any psu that does my system without making noise, in fact a PPC makes less noise with its 80 mm than my ocz 850 watts with 120 mm, why, build. ocz have cooling fins smaller than a unborn baby's thing. And half of the space isnt used aswell. so most of the air is just getting blown through with little effect. Still ppc's 1200 watts is 80 MM, hmm, have i ever had issues with 80 mm's nah, 2x 750 watts will do the job, or a 2 rail 1000 watts. ( i aint a big fan of small rails cause im always limited by the small rails.
  18. hehe, my chipset got really hot, i dont understand it, it makes like 2 watts idle, and yet daaamn hot, my dfi lanparty nf4 expert did i have water on, 400 mhz oc 4400+ toledo 2 mb 110 watt. No fan required. Anyways, the thing is, im gonna get waterblocks for vga, so if you imagine : memory-Vga-vga-cpu on watercooling to a maybe 360 rad, how well does that work, i tried a 2900 XT - cpu, nooot good. so i need the rads, only for show atm, no use in them.. YET Anyways, got my 2 gb mushkin i ordered, waiting on the 2gb i rma'd theyve changed to a box since last time i ordered
  19. Put this under pc power... cause im dying for a new psu my ocz 850 watts makes more noise than 2x 3870x2 in CFX, yes. and thats when im counting my system ran everything stock with just 1 ! Anyways, i got space for 2 psu's in my case, so im just wondering about 2x 750 watts Silencer 750 Quad. Okey, if i go on doing a kickstart of the 2nd, with green/black stuff. Should i do connection of black-black and green-green(ofc green green) but the black one. if not, give me a goood quiet 1000 watts psu for a affordable $$$$
  20. 5000BE is 125watts 5000 BE IS 65 WATT!. 6400 or 6200 BE or what model it was the 6xxx black is 125 WATT!. thats 1, + phenom 9600 and phenom 9750 and 9850. thats 4 cpu's Anyways intel got cpu's on 150 watts! anyways, i think it aint the fets, i think its the design, the fets are prolly good, the fets specs are crazy( ive studied analog electronic and digital(nor- or-and- simple cpu's up to 30 mhz) so i know how to change bad from good components, i dunno why this mobo acts like it does, this have been my 3rd 790FX-DQ6, others died ( 1.4 V 5600+ ) which is a 89 watts. Anyways the 780G boards does 125 watts good, not all, mostly every1. Do youre work when buying 780G boards, and check the components. Anyways, i guessed you guys are wondering what kinda case is a image & shapetek eye tower, well image & shapetek makes server towers. I got it as b'day present from my nice big bro, aswell as a antec truepower 550 watts, with some watercooling The watercooling i got from him : ( tank, pump, some 10 year old tubes, and a kickass cpu block(without fittings, so made all the time till i bought my apogee) He updated the cooling with tank and pump, other than that rest of the cooling was 10 years old( now 2 years ago) anyways, big tower, not very easy to work with like new cases.
  21. Mostly untrue. MSI boards like MSI k9a2 CF( the cheap goody one ) which i use for budget systems, cause i got some friends who doesnt like to spend alot of money obviously. Well, that mobo gets killed with 125 Watts cpu's. Seen lotsa 780 G mobo's do 125 Watts. My mobo got 4 dual phase. which is more than enough, how many does a DFI Lanparty NF4-sli Ultra-d/G havE ?. Cause ive overvolted a 110 watts 4400+ toledo about 0.040 volts, and clocked it 300 mhz higher ( should atleast be around 125 watts, and that one runs like a CHARM! accurate voltages, across the board, with a psu that was bundled with a case( antec sonata 3) its a antec earthwatts 500 watts which obviously noise less than a very expensive OCZ psu on 850 watts.
  22. Ive ordered DFI m8's, ofc ive done that. Okey here is my issues. AOD and other apps act strange in vista. Bios overclocking is a PAIN in the butt. Okey here is the deal: I set for instance voltage to 1.4 V meaning something way much higher since this mobo obviously suck. Anyways, It reboots succesfully shows no sign of any limit or whatso ever ( 1.4 v to be 100% sure though) Ive already proven i can do 3.1 ghz easy, well now comes the funny part, i can play games whatever i like, i shutdown my computer, now it dont boot anymore. well, isnt that strange, tried to push my cpu, but got xxxxing tired of reaching the almost hidden cmos pins, so i made a button, well now i was tired of setting memory settings, voltages, multi fsb usb keyboard support, setting raid, first display, pci-e modes turning cool n quiet off and all that stuff, reboot, then select to boot from raid then boot up to find my settings didnt work to do it all over again. Okey, it should not be doing that, it should actually boot up nicely with resettet FSB/multi settings. So why does a Phenom 9600 BE do it while a 9850 doesnt ? It isnt a DFI, I wont go anything else than dfi, i now officially hate, MSI(for my self, nice for others) asus gigabyte abit. yea. dfi have never given me issues, the expert had issues getting my mems correctly, put in 1 then the other beeep, then switch voltage to 3V once booted, it always booted, any setting. so there you have it, the story of the worst motherboard ever! And btw, the chipset uses 10 watt load, why does the chipset need fans to be blowing on them, the VRM that gives me crappy voltages ? yeaa.
  23. my motherboard is acting weird, but got a 3dmark run up. 3Dmark06 If im lucky i might get the fastest 3dmark 06 score with phenom already tomorrow, i will test to beat it without using a 2nd 3870X2. im about 300 score away, turn off aero and clock some vga's.
  24. 2.9 GHZ no voltage. 1 hour 2x orthos, foregot the cpu measurement bars. got it up on 3ghz no voltage now. system is heated up, and doing rebench at 3ghz. 3.1 GHZ 1.425 V temp Test. THE 8 H is comming,just posting progress! The most healthy oc is 3.1 ghz. b4 a voltage is needed 1.3 V+ for higher clocks. might have killed VRM on my gigabyte, AGAIN. this will be 4th time, and i just cannot wait for a DFI board, cause gigabyte is the worst buy ive done in my life.
  25. Hehe, 2 for power, red and black is for 12 V usually. yellow is for rpm readings. The last is for more accurate fan control. cool n quiet works with only 3 pins aswell, but optimal on 4. (2.0)
