  1. Well you could put in another pc. Need the same type of socket of course, which might suck to get a hold of. The other option is going back to whomever sold it to you. Maybe they can help.
  2. Windows has the option to only use a number of cores and not all of them. Maybe you should check run -> msconfig -> Boot pc (second tab . I have a dutch version, so I'm not sure of the name) -> advanced and then under number of cores.
  3. Well oke then I'm relieved, however can't you bring your won CPU back to store? If they aren't supposed to sell it and it's an older version.. I'm sure if you tell them that, they will kindly help you with it
  4. Although I'm not sure what it means, I also have Revision D0. Is their something wrong with it?
  5. I got a HD 4870 and when I connect it to my tv through HMDI I get decent audio from my tv. So most card now will be plug and play
  6. Besides getting Intel? Not sure, maybe some1 who has this processor or a same type processor can help you more. Have you looked online for OC video's or guides for you CPU specific?
  7. I think you can overclock you CPU more, but I'm not sure. Like I said I have Intel. But with my i7 960 I got it form 3.2 to 4.0 Ghz with ease, I think I'll be able to hit 4.5 aswell. So 0.2 Ghz seems like a small overclock.
  8. Run Prime95 for a couple of hours to if your OC is stable, if so then it's probably a problem with BF3
  9. I have Intel, so I'm not sure if this the same for AMD. But There is a max to your baseclock which your CPU can handle. So longer you multiplier and see how high your baseclock can go and then calculate what a good baseclock good be, think about your memory aswell. Memory has the same baseclock as the CPU.
  10. I don't think it's a CPU or GPU problem since it happens in the BIOS as well, that barely uses either of them.
  11. I would check all the wires in your pc, just be sure. And since it also occurs in your BIOS, it's the wires or a motherboard/BIOS thing.
  12. The use of automatic fan speed is that it doesn't make to much noise when it isn't being used to much. And when you do you use it, it quickly goes to 100% anyway. And for the default setting use Google, sure you'll be able to get them somewhere. Maybe even nVidia own website?
  13. I'm currently using http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=6024 The Scythe Slip Stream 800, there more quit and have better airflow then the Noctua.
