  1. hahaha! I guess i'm not the only one! http://www.tomshardware.com/2008/02/15/vista_workshop/
  2. oh, sorry. go ahead and delete the thread.
  3. oops...sorry, i knew that...slipped my mind.
  4. I'm selling the CD in sleeve, shipped for $12. PP only, no cc.
  5. I started with 2x1gb and vista x64 idled at 700MB. i moved to 2x2gb and it idled around 900mb. i finally upgraded to 4x2gb and it now idles around 1.3gb. basically what i'm getting at is vista uses a fixed % of ram to store things you access regularly. so, the more the memory the faster vista runs.
  6. I'm selling my barely used eVGA 8800 GT 512MB Superclocked 650/950 video card with free Enemy Territory - Quake Wars. It includes the box and all the content. This card will run 700/1000 on stock cooling and probably much further if you buy an aftermarket cooler. I was able to score 15,000 in 3DMark06 (check sig) using this card at 700/1000 and a Q6600 @ 3.6GHz. I've played tons of games including COD4, Crysis, Orange Box, Bioshock and a few others with max settings at 1920x1200 and it looks great (minus Crysis of course). Crysis ran great at 30+fps 1440x900 with highest settings (no aa/af). I am asking $220 shipped for this card. Paypal only. If you need to pay via cc, please add 7% for cc purchases, for a total of $235.40. My Heatware, iTrader and eBay responses.
  7. SOLD!!! Thanks for looking. I've upgraded to a quad core and am selling my dual core E6600. I ran it at 3.6GHz 24/7 at 1.425V, orthos stable, but it will do 3.8GHz at 1.525V orthos stable. I'm asking $155 shipped.
  8. I'm upgrading and am selling my E6600. I bought it back in March and have been running it at 3.6GHz @ 1.45V (actual). I recently tweaked it to 3.8GHz @ 1.57V. I'm asking $180 shipped and accept paypal (no cc) and money orders (USPS only). Heatware iTrader eBay
  9. if you click the BIOS link in my sig, you'll see the voltage settings I'm using on each. Most everyone with the same setup are using the same voltages, although cpu and mem vary based on the quality of your chips.
  10. most are getting 400*8=3.2GHz on the Q6600. Those on good water setup are getting 400*9=3.6GHz. As for the mobo, I'd suggest one that supports DDR3 since you'll get the most bang for your buck in terms of future proofing. They say the 680i will support Penryn, but who really knows for sure. Plus, they're saying the 680i will top out below the Penryn's capabilities, limiting you from the max potential of the chip. I got my 680i when they first came out, so I'm happy with my purchase, but if I was looking to buy today, I'd heavily be considering DDR3 and getting preped for Penryn.
  11. SOLD!!! Never used set of 2GB (2x1GB) G.Skill PC4000 DDR 500. Asking $150 shipped OBO before I put it on eBay.
  12. put the HTT link at 4x, raise your vcore to 1.50V (about 1.45V vdroop), lower your mem ratio and start pushing the FSB. Try 210, 220, 230, etc, with a target of 3GHz (273). you're running air, so realistic is about 2.6 - 2.8GHz. use orthos blend level 9 to check stablity. BTW...you're robbing yourself of performance on the mem. SPD reads 2-2-2-5 but you're running 2-3-2-5. find your max cpu oc, then lower the multi on the cpu and find your max mem oc, then look for a good mem/cpu combo for max system oc.

  14. for anyone interested in my BIOS settings for 3.6GHz and 1000MHz:
  15. SOLD! Thanks for the inquiries! This is an awesome setup for someone looking to upgrade. The parts are listed in my sig and the Opty is prime stable at 3.1GHz. The memory is good up to 285MHz and is using the 180 divider (for maximum bandwidth). This system pulls a 26s SPi 1M, which is very fast. I'm interested in trying Conroe so I'm dumping everything at a good price. I'm asking $500 + shipping. I'll ship everything in the DFI box, with processor and memory left installed so you can plug it in and go. I'll make sure to include everything that came in the DFI box too. Everything is still installed 'cause i can't afford to buy before I sell, but I'll take pics of the machine for those interested.
  16. sorry...was just following angry games' lead: Location: N. Faroffistan thought we were all having fun...
  17. SOLD!!! Thanks for the inquiries. price drop... I've finally upgraded to an Opteron and am selling my 3GHz X2 s939. It's an LCBIE 0619RPMW Toledo, which is an awesome overclocker. It's a great chip and treated me well and am sad to see it go, but my replacement is even better . I'm asking $120 shipped or $135 if you want the box with an Opteron HSF (it's really nice, with heat pipes and all). You can check my sig for details on the chip. Thanks.
  18. well, i guess i'm still unclear. if my amd is maxed at 100% while playing, wouldn't i see better performance on a conroe, or is the game and the cpu both at their limit? would a conroe run at 100% too, or would it run an average of around 50-60%? if it's 50-60% than i could understand there not being a performance difference as a conroe is probably 40-50% faster than an amd, but if the conroe is also at 100% and it's working faster than my AMD, then it has to be doing something more, in turn enhancing the performance of the game!?
  19. i'm curious to know if it's at 95% load for oc'd conroe users too?! just curious if the performance is better on conroe because of the compute capabilities.
  20. $195 shipped obo Includes base system plus 1 controller and 1 memory card and the following games: SOCOM 3: US Naval Seals Gran Turismo 3 A-Spec Grand Theft Auto - Vice City FIFA Soccer 2006 FIFA 2001 MLS 007 Everything or Nothing Rugby 2004 NHL 2006 NHL 2003 Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2006 Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance
