  1. Hi All, I currently have a AMD 965BE and will be upgrading to the 8150 in 2 weeks. Right now the motherboard I got I think I may have damaged it but by looking at the cpu support list it doesn't say specifically PHII 965and require to get a new one. Current motherboard is M5A97. The 2 motherboards I am looking at is the Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD7 or the Asus Crosshair V Formula Socket AM3+ Please help
  2. ok so 3.9 seems to be my wall i seem to have hit. I still have not touched any voltage and only changed the multiplier. When i tried 4ghz it crashes with BSOD.
  3. ok I am using this for gaming. All i did was bump up the multiplier to 19x from the bios Here is a screenshot of what I got so far.. Let em know if there's more or something else I can do.. Right now it's running at 3.8ghz. My overall goal that I'd like to reach is min 4ghz
  4. Hi All, I pretty new to overclocking. I have been seeing allot of posts on the net about this cpu hitting 4.0-4.1ghz. I have recently bought my cpu water cooling the Antec 920. I am so lost when it comes to overclocking this cpu and the "overclocking" from asus can only put it at 3.7ghz. Is there anybody that can help me out please? I don't even know where to start as this bios seems a bit different. Any help is appreciated.
  5. Wow... How can this be considered that "ignorance is bliss"??? Seriously man, People can only give valid reviews on items that they own and/or have tried... By the sounds of it your the one who seems to be ignorante.. But hey who are we to judge you since were just "ignorante" people.. Giving an opinion on something you have never tried nore have never owned would be a poser.. Also, I am sure this individual has done a bit of research on and just didnt come in here blindly asking people what he should buy... As well, if your not here to add your input on audio devices then keep your comments to yourself. People like you make new people to the board uncomfortable on giving their opinions, because of people like you who think their smarter then everybody else and have the omasity to call people ignorante.
  6. wow I just thought it was impressive... <_< lol guess not..
  7. Wow I had to shard this with you guys.. Check this out!! LINK Pretty crazzy eh?? P4 651 OC'd to 6.14ghz This guy used a DICE system to cool off the CPU.
  8. if you creat your partionts into Dynamic and the set the2nd HD as an extended drive. you can do all of this threw computer manager and set it all to the C:\ there fore you wont even notice the 2nd HD or even create it as a folder on your desktop and then it will read it as HD1 and HD2 as total disk space as opposed to seperate disks. I think in a spannded environment sets up the HD's as in a RAID without doing so in the initial install of the OS. Therefor you acctually usuing the 2 HD's at the same time but will include the diskspace as a 1 whole. You have to make sure though that the partitions that you creat for spanned are exactly the same size. Once again this is all recommended doing this threw computer manager. Also note that once you creat your HD's into Dynamic Disks you can't revert back to basic disks. If you need any help in doing this pm me and we'll chat threw MSN and I'll walk ya threw it.

  16. Sorry to break it to ya m8 but I'm from Canada.. Look at the prices on the Canadian side of the site and you'll see the difference in your prices compared to ours... Once again being Canadian doesn't pay off.. <_< BFG gtx280 for $499.49 The MSI is not listed on our side of the site... the 4850x2 2gb is $371.99 So I got my BFG gtx280 for $446 CDN tax included
  17. Yes, sorry I am new to the OCing and I'm curently looking into it and reading up on how to OC my cpu.. I do have a thread currently going in the Overclocking section asking for help in doing so.. Sorry if I gave the impression that I'm not interested just I only wanna work on one thing at a time. Now I'm working on OCing the CPU. If there's anybody who wants to help a n00b on OCing please let me know cause I am definately interested.. The only reason why I got the gtx280 was cause there's only like a $30 difference in the price of the gtx280 compared to the gtx260 so I figred for the price difference why not.?.?.? So should I exchange my gpu for a gtx260 then? I still have 7 days to change my mind.
