A64Tweaker doesn't overclock your cpu, it changes memory timings


should RTHDRIBL be under OCing Graphics Cards as an artifact tester rather than a benchmark? does RTHDRIBL have a benchmark? :huh:


you should link to Memtest86+ as well: http://www.memtest.org/


memtest86+ is based on memtest86 but doesn't require a linux boot cd/floppy to run... you can run it in pure dos on a usb drive for example, along with all your bios flash utilities (that's what i do anyway)


so put Memtest86 (linux boot cd/floppy) and Memtest86+ (advanced, pure dos)


memtest86+ is way more up to date than memtest86 and has more cpu/ram support, and you can do stuff like change memory timings on the fly!

well, if frankenstein is willing to keep on top of this with a bit of help from a mod, could this be a sticky? or something?


if everyone pitches in like with jammins PSU list before it was erased, we could be looking at a decent but brief reference for people looking

BF2 Benchmark link is broken.




Just a little opps, the fix (incase you dont see it bc it's so simple):

ok... this is a bit of a leap, but you can tweak the ASIO latency from crap to near-zero... so it's more of a timing tweak than overclocking as such...


the kX drivers *may* offer higher system performance as there isn't any bloatware like the standard creative drivers (i've never bothered to test this to prove/disprove it but it's something that might have an effect)
