Recommended Posts

Question:

Can i use the files and settings transfer wizard to go from xp to vista?

 

Technically yes, whether it actually works good, I don't know.

no i am not complaining - i really expected a higher score overall - but it dosnt average your score - i did expect a higher score for the x2 - the best score was 5.9 for the disk drives and memory -

 

the coolbits i dont know how i can get it to work as before on XP - i was able to do a manual OC or best setting and let the program pick the best stable OC for the video card - but now i dont have those options - i dont see anything that i can adjust to OC or not --

ok so your lowest is your card also - but better than mines :)

do you have your processor OC at all or just stock ?

 

i cant check it again now - got feed up with vista for now -

i put back my image to xp - its nice - aero etc. - but always have to keep allowing programs to run etc. - after a while its annoying - plus i had a few other issues - and of course my printer software didnt work and some other programs

 

i try it again later on after i change my case - mostly likley next year :)

I'm getting 5.9 on everything except CPU and HDD, specs below...

 

What's your clock speed on the 4400+ as i'm only getting 5.4 and i've OCed to 2750MHz? As for HDD it gave my raptor a 5.6, was hoping for more :mad:

That is messed up! I know that my card will shut down when it gets too hot. But I would hate to buy a new crad that dont!

OK just about to install Vista (dual-boot with XP, 40gB partition each + 160gB for media + 60 for games)... what are the possibilities of me losing my data on other partitions?

Cos if there's a significant chance I don't want to take it thanks :)
