  1. Another great review! The 5750 will be a market winner. Great features and performance for it's price.
  2. d3bruts1d I shall haunt you for the rest of your life for not putting the new Alien vs predator on the list. I spent some good hours playing the other 2 and can't wait for this new one, too bad I'm almost sure it will be an underrated game.
  3. Don't buy a new computer! You have a pretty decent rig and if you are sure it's the motherboard that's giving problems change it for a 780i/790i from EVGA which is still an awesome Mobo with good OC capacity and great quality overall.
  4. The Megahalems is without a doubt one of the best coolers of the market if used in push-pull configuration (a fan in the cooler pushing air into it while a fan in the back of the case, in the cooler or both pushes air out). If you are not planning in a high OC on the RAMs you don't need to buy an aftermarket cooler. If your case has a good airflow there will be no problem with a little OC. Now about the fans, for price performance go for to the Noiseblocker XL1 or XL2 (XL1 for more silence, XL2 for more airflow). If you want a more expensive but great fan go for the Noctua S12B FLX.
  5. That's what I recommend. Although voltage and timings can be adjusted with no consequences as far as I'm concerned and since you have a good Mobo no problems will apparently occur.
  6. I couldn't quite really understand some of the things you said. If the fans can be connected to the motherboard you can use a program like speedfan to regulate their speed. If the fans are connected to the power supply you can change the cables order in the molex to make the fan receive less voltage.

  7. Thanks for the warm welcome and thanks for the link The Smith. I'll check it out.
  8. I would go for the 5850. Two GTX 260 beat the 5850 today but the 5850 is DX11 ready and a new generation card, not to mention the drivers are still immature and it can get a performance boost as the time passes, not only with drivers but also with DX11 games that will run a lot better in DX11 cards obviously. You can eventually sell your GTX260 for about 100$ which will help you buying the 5850. Another option is to wait a bit longer for the Nvidia new generation and see what they have to offer.
  9. The CPU voltage is too high! Even if it doesn't kills your CPU it will make his life time much short. 4.75Ghz is almost considered a benchmark OC in my opinion. Lowering the OC and the overall voltage of the system is in my opinion your best choice. If you want to get risky raise the CPU and NB voltage some more and check if the RAM's aren't eventually be causing some instability.
  10. Although one does simply register in OCC I'm 18 and I'm from Portugal. I applied for a News Editor position since I have lot's of free time (just finished high school) and it would be something I really liked to do. Sorry about the small amount of info but you will eventually get to know me better as time passes. One last thing, I'm not new to forums and I know a lot about a large number of subjects (not only about computers) so you can expect me to be an avid and helpful user. Regards, ScapeGoat
