  1. Thanks a lot for all the info guys. Ill look into the setups you suggested and let you know what i end up getting. Thanx again, definitely got what i needed!
  2. im trying to decide which would be a better pick. Logitech http://reviews.cnet.com/pc-speakers/z-2300...ain;contentBody Bose http://reviews.cnet.com/pc-speakers/bose-c...7-30806360.html
  3. The V8 is not for ocing. V8 and v10 aren't great imo. try prolimatech megahelms or True 120 Extreme.
  4. At my resolution 1920x1200 it's not enough of an increase to give up 375 bucks. Though if i didn't have my 285 already i would buy it. Superb review btw!!
  5. Damn these babies are flying lol
  6. OMG that is such an in depth guide good recommendation.
  7. hopefully this review can answer your question... http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.php?opti...8&Itemid=67 im not very familiar with ocing ram so i only had them set at 1600mhz and called it a day. im sure they can do better as per that review 9.6 out of 10 is pretty solid. just skip to the testing section. Funny how one of the cons listed is the reason i have to let them go...
  8. I like to go with oc versions of cards. I'll wait.
  9. I have this kit for sale had it in my i7 pc but they no longer clear the cpu hs. Nothing wrong with them perfectly working i loved them 95 shipped. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001L4A76...x_ya_oh_product http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...k=TR3X6G1600C8D
  10. Not the biggest improvement But here u go. This is probably all i can do with this CO/CI. If i push it any more it's unstable and blue screens. 4.134GHZ is all i can muster to fully pass OCCT and prime 95. Score went up 169 points. Thanx! damn i just realized...i forgot to click the memory tab on the second cpu-z lol
  11. I noticed you have a 1500 watt. Is that even needed? I am thinking of going watercooled and running tri sli as well. Will i need to upgrade my psu?
  12. he paid 2g's for that garbage? Should of built an i7.
  13. Honestly if he can take the time to take a screen shot of his browser scores, than i don't see why he wouldn't be able to do the same with his desktop.......
  14. Updates!!! 3DMARK 03 3DMARK 05 3DMARK 06 3DMARK2001SE
  15. No, an idle temp is an idle temp. If he were to build an i7 with the prolimatech and booted up with no load on the cpu those are in fact the temps he would get. So it's absolutely valid. Your referring to a specific idle temp with a specific voltage in mind. In essence you'd be telling anyone with an i7 the only way to get "real" temps is to adjust the voltage or disable speedstep. Now would an average user even know what your talking about? if you would like to show the user temps at that voltage feel free. But the fact of the matter is 100% of time anyone would be running the same voltage and idle temps that i was "without" any tweaking. Thats that. No ones is saying your wrong in the general statement your making. But this thread is about a good cooler. I posted a pic showing good temps with an idle cpu. I'm pretty sure he got the answer he was looking for. Glad to be of help.
  16. i didn't undervolt the i7 it's just running on idle. Im also pretty sure when any cooler is used in a benchmark they gauge idle temps with full load temps. So the temps im showing him which are at "idle" are valid. kthanxbye!
  17. psshhh yea i'll believe it when ccokeman ends up reviewing one. Im definitely above that 14000 bracket. pssshhhh
  18. Honestly if i were you i would take rourkchris's advice. i did and these are the results.
  19. Not to sure, but the first picture my cpu is on stock clocks. Same as you but, we also have different GFX cards. btw your setup is not bad at 3dmark.
  20. Hey guys thought i'd update some numbers for ya!! Ok this one is with no overclock on the cpu at all. sorry pezcore.... This is with my oc profile enabled. I would try to go for 16000 but im just to lazy and it took forever to dial in the 285 to where im comfortable. Enjoy fellas!! btw! SINGLE CARD POWWAA!! LOL (2nd card will be here next week) -Mike
  21. I hope these DX11 cards are all they're cracked up to be. You guys are really getting me anxious.
  22. When did you get rid of the toxics? I've been dying for a set can't find them ***oops, just read your sig***
