[quote user="Kidbest100"]And if they aren't going to OC, they're a bit crazy
I disagree. Overclocking reduces the overall lifespan of a machine. Some folks, like myself, want our machines to last as long as possible because we can't afford to be replacing them very often. I don't think that makes me 'a bit crazy'. So... if I win this machine, I'll keep it clean, cool, and running at stock speeds for years.Remember... just because you can, doesn't mean you should.To each their own though. :)
I won the FX-8320 build from HH's last giveaway. I was able to get the FX-8320 from 3.5Ghz to a very stable overclock at 4.4Ghz on stock voltage. That isn't going to cause in reduction in lifetime of the chip, as my temps sit around 22c at full load, and there's absolutely no voltage increases.
Of course this is only because I hit a wall at 4.8Ghz and decided to step it back for a while. But the point is, you can OC without effecting the lifetime of your gear.
Awesome! I need a upgrade! [:P]
(I'm so joking)
Is it just me or has Anonymous really just become more of a nuisance than an organized hacking organization? I'm sure a lot of people have smashed their mice on the table after finding our their account was compromised, but is there some type of glorious outcome i'm missing here?
I've never been a huge fan either, however a friend of my worked at their office in Sacremento. So i'm sort of bummed out for him, dude moved to California last year from Texas to join their design team and now is unemployed. Sucks for all of them.
If your PSU is capable of powering your GPU in the x4 slot it can power it in the x16 slot equally as well.
Personally, I'd check the pci-e x16 slot and verify there's no physical damage within the slot.
Otherwise, I did manage to find a bit of information around the web. Mostly obvious stuff though.
1. disable integrated graphics
2. check your bios settings.. I've personally never had to do this, however I'm sure you could play around and figure it out. I know there's settings in there specifically for pci-e.
Heck of a change there!
It seems to be running quite well now!
Indeed! I still haven't gotten around to overclocking yet. Just picked up a new 27" monitor, so I've been busy drooling all over myself.
Ahh nice. I've been wondering when they were going to do that. I often see post in response to other people at the bottom of comments and have no clue what they're talking about until I get on my desktop.
I've got a raspberry pi, however I just don't see the need to install a DOS emulator on it. I'd rather toss on SimAnt and call it a day.
