    Can a woman lead a nation

    if u look at a bit of history from where i live, u most likely would'nt need to ask this question. they have proven to be some of the most influential/skilled leaders we've had. we could all have been speaking in spanish if it was'nt for Queen Elizabeth I

    please comments my new build

    im with rado on this one, even though i know how good the seasonics are for their ratings. i was running my old icfx3200, e6600 , x1900xtx ,6x fans & pump on my seasonic 600watt. if i wasnt careful on how i balanced out the psu's rails it would reboot when overly pushed. so i bought my current silverstone 850 & alls been well since then.

    Socket LGA775 Discussion Thread

    just to edit what i said about my e6750's coretemps a few posts back, they were not as low as i thought. i was using an older version of coretemp when i needed to be using the newest beta one. still extreme low temps even for h20 cooling desktop the cpu volt are stock 1.35v , but it seems to draw extra when o/ced in desktop?? i have only put the cpu vtt up from 1.21 to 1.29v. room temp of 19c short load everest is showing the same core temps as the none beta coretemp , i should hav realised when the core temp was so much lower than my room temp lol this dame 3dmark03 is still peeing me off, ive got a 11hours orthos +3d01se screenshot ready for a ocdb entry with the setting from the above links, but cant get 3d01 to run even at stock fsb

    Socket LGA775 Discussion Thread

    glad to here ure all good, loving those DB entrys im guessing ure right its the icfx wether or not it was the same 3dmark u got those problem with . the icfx is starting to give me sum odd problems since ive tryed running 3d03 so meny time & got those reboots everytime. the e6750 is realy showing up this mobo to. this new chip like u said flys with the limited fsb ive got, fsb450x8 with just 0.02v added on the VTT lol mad little c2d. i reckon this new chip could do 4Ghz if i had a capeable mobo , so fsb500+ . im just a bit hesatant to buy a mobo with all the new boards comming out now & through to the new year. i could get a cheep bloodiron to rinse for a few months till i now what board i want for a penryn. im not getting the money for the mobo etc off my mate till after xmas & might as well use that £150. we might even hav sum of the newer dfi mobos over in the UK buy then(newer p35 & the x38). green

    Socket LGA775 Discussion Thread

    alright c-n how it going, dame nice chips those e6850's 4Ghz :drool::drool: , ive just got hold of a e6750 which i stright swaped for my e6600. my friend bought my 975x/g & a-datas pc2-8000 off me & got a e6750 thinking it would work in the 975x/g which has'nt got a bios for 1333 c2d's. so i swapped doing him a favor & giving me a change from from my e6600 which i was board with anyway. getting to my point in posting in this thread, im trying to get sum ocdb entrys up myself but cant get 3dmark03 to run no matter what i try. it crashes every time just before the second cpu test, it loads the second test but just when it should have started my system reboots? it can be at stock 24/7 stable, o/c 24/7 stable what ever? ive tried downloading the latest version of 3dmark03 & even tried re-installing catalyst? it not like the e6750 is getting to hot or unstable, it sit's at 10-11c desktop o/ced to 3.5Ghz with 1.38volts & even fully loaded in orthos it stays in the mid 20's. im not 100% sure if i ran 3d03 when i first got my ati 3870 & was still using the c2d e6600 , but it does'nt seem like a gpu error to me? every dame bench runs perfectly just not 3d03 :mad: :confused: eney ideas eneybody? im all out. cheers green

    3800's

    im very happy with my new 3870, to me its like an improved 1900xtx. most things seem to run slightly better on the 3870 @ 1920x1200, not loads but noticable. one thing i hav noticed that the image qual is better in sum games. in medivalII the 3d map is more detailed, for example the sanddunes used to look flatter & less 3d, now the are much more pronounced. so far i hav found a few issues with ccc, the autotune button buggers up my OS, not sure it thats just on my 64bit OS or 32bit also? the only other thing ive notaced wrong is while playing games i get funny silver looking lines where the polygons meet on walls etc. it happens in different games not just one, so hopefully it will get sorted out in the next copple of catalyst drivers.

    the difference in the UK from the GT to the 3870 is a good £50, so 100USD's. a few quid to most people
  18. the prices hav'nt changed over here in the UK.

    Does Crytek's Engine suck?

    im with the pritty but inefficient programing camp, after playing the demo i reckon if valve started from scratch & built a new engine from the ground up that rivalled the prittyness of crytek engine the valve one would be a hell of a lot quicker.

    well ive bitten the bullet & orderd a 3870xt for £146, it should be here tomoz. i got a bonus from work this month & i thought it would be rude not to buy one at the price, could'nt help myself lol.
  21. same here, they pritty much got me into modding o/cing etc. they are a little biast towards asus & scan.co.uk though, apart from that i find their reviews concrete proof pritty much.
  22. so uve orderd a single 3870xt thraxz? or two? ive got 6 days till i can order one or two, im still waiting for payday . found sum crossfire 3870 tests http://www.technic3d.com/article-593,1-sap...-der-spitze.htm not in english again, but the numbers are all u need. i thought this thread was more relivent to post the link because of being crossfired cards together.
  23. im alot more interested after hearing ati has got crossfire actually working right, which it never really has before proper. since i orignally saw the tech spec's for crossfire, i always though the concept of how it works is much better than SLI, but it never really worked out before like that. the tiling or super tiling, should hav offered a boost in speed on almost all games without the need for the game to support crossfire. where as SLI was always geared towards first person shooters because the way the screen is split across the gpu's, so games other than fpshooters did'nt see as much speed boost. if ati/amd can pull a rabbit out the hat with crossfire & get it working, sli will need to catch up as thats never work to its full potencial either.

    here's a few game fps tests on a good spread of games, it in german though http://www.computerbase.de/artikel/hardwar...pielebenchmarks
  25. i cant, but i can tell when the the fps drasticly change between speeds. should'nt eneything above 25fps be smooth eneyway? films run at 25fps dont they?
