How to Post Pictures

09 August 2010 - 04:02 PM

How do I post good quality small pictures here. I tried a few stuff but can not seem to get it right. I take good high quality pictures but they too big, then I resize them but then they come up blurry. I have seen folks here posting small (thumbnails) I think then you hit on the picture and they expand to great quality, how can I do that?

First Time Overclocking

06 August 2010 - 04:48 AM

This is my first time overclocking, as most of you know I just got done building my new rig with the help of everyone here My New Rig. My next step now is to learn how to OC, I have read some guides and this is what I have been able to do so far. It passed the stability test with OCCT & Prime 65 with out any errors but only for 30min, then again I do not know what would be the correct setting for those test and times. Aslo, what about the RAM should I change anything like trying to do 7-7-7 whatever?? What else should I do? I would like to take it to 4ghz stable without overheating issues. Thanks

All is left to do now is start the assembly process tomorrow. Then the Overclocking :lol:

One more think, about the mobo, I have read that there has been many problems with the NB overheating on some of these models, would it be wise to just reseat that heatsink right away or go ahead and start the building process. thanks.

New Build Advice

10 July 2010 - 02:20 AM

It has been like 4 to 5 years since I build a new system. I would like to know if there are better price/performance components that I may exchange in your opinion. I am also planning to OC the cpu to maybe 4ghz and the graphic card as well, of course I would have to read a lot more in order to keep myself from frying anything.
I will for sure go with the cpu and mobo no question about that. In regards to the RAM I posted those 2 since I did not know better or you can also suggest any other. The psu I posted is for future crossfire most likely (not sure yet). System is for both hardcore gaming and also lots of multi applications video encoding and such.
I need to know which gamer keyboard and mouse would be best and of course what do you all think about this build. Thanks in advance for any advice.
