    Not sure how many episodes there will be, but I just watched the latest one last night and things are getting good, next weeks looks great!

    Can't wait, Heroes is coming back in 2 weeks I think!

    IE8? Sounds like a problem to me right there, Firefox will fix that right up!

    Yes, please refrain from using the word stock here unless you are helping someone out!

    Im sorry LSD please dont be upset.

    So is there anyway I can find out what caused the hard lock? All the event viewer has is and unexpected restart. Pftt.

    Hmm well Im at a loss as to why a small overclock would make my CPU so gay. Maybe I shoudl RMA it? whats the chances of that working? Would I get a new CPU? I seriously think this one is a dud.

    Vantage at 725/2150, Performance:




    Vantage at 725/2150, High.



    Temps with CF disabled never get over 35c idle and 50c load with Furmark. With CF on, the primary card idles at 40c and loads at 68c, the secondary idles at 37c and loads at 62c.

    I didn't see a dramatic increas in FPS with Crysis, but i haven't used my custom .cfg file yet. Disabling Ambient Occlusion maps, edge AA and forcing performance colour grading on high shader settings should see me get 45 FPS min and ~55 average at High/Gamer settings.

    They may give you a new one, but you would have to convince them on what, why, and how you are convinced it is faulty though.

    A BSOD can be MANY things, I would not think CPU at all really. Settings or drivers, yes but CPU itself no.

    Heroes and Fringe are back on next week!!! Now, where is eleventh hour? And DAMN NBC, My Name is Earl has been canceled, I could KILL!

    Na Im not going to RMA it. Too much hassle. Ill just start the ball rolling on the I7 Build. I was pricing last night and the i7 920 is $10 more now then what I payed for the Q9550 :-(

    I think the blue screen is either something to do with crossfire set up not being 100% happy probably something to do with different clock speeds?

    Its the Hard locks that I feel have more to do with unstable CPU settings, but there seems to be NO stable off clock settings for this CPU/MB combination. One day when I get the time i will strip both systems and see what the go is in the P45 board. but I just seem to be getting more and more busy.

    Heroes back on soon? The last episode of heroes i have is Season 3 Episode 25? so I assume season 4 will be starting? Eztv's website must not be updated as much as it used to as it still shows it as pending and I cant get the good tv.com site anymore it just redirects to the crap australian one that is not helpful.

    I have got one of my workmates hooked on Defying Gravity and Warehouse 13 also. We exchange media!

    Yeah There goes another good show. I dont know what these TV companies are thinking but I think NBC is axe happy. They seem to love getting people into a show then canning it? Whats the go NBC???????

    More beer.

    Hard lock can be memory related as well, corrupt data transfers can make all things come to a halt due to memory errors.

    Ya, Heroes comes back next week! I am so happy, that show is great! HOPEFULLY it does not get canceled so easy! Ya, season 3 Episode 25 was the last, season 4 starts the 21st

    Defying gravity I have not seen, what channel does that air on do you know?
