Re: January Forum Drawing - ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2 Video Card!

I'm in!

Let's hope ATI keeps up the good work and there will be a reason to be an ATIfanboy again.


Thanks for the contest !

Re: Draw The Air Through The Radiator Or Push It Through

I'm pushing, but unfortunatly I do not know which is better. But other than saying it 'feels' like a more efficient way, I do not have any grounds to claim that it is any better.

So I'll be pleased to hear which is better as well

Re: What's your favorite brand DVD Burner?

My personal favorite burners are from Plextor. I do not currently own one, but I had a SCSI burner from plextor 10 years ago.

And the performance compared to other burners was so great that I'm still a plextor fanboy :)

Re: Memory crashing my computer?

It might even be your OS.

Did the reboots happen using the same OS every time, if so you could try to download a Linux Live CD and see if your PC also reboots when running that.


Just another option to pinpoint your problem.

Re: Maximum acceptable temps on 8800GTS 512?

I have the Asus GTS 512 and after 15 minutes of artifact scanning with atitool I get temperatures of around 85 degrees C. That's with stockcooling and using all stock settings. With Crysis it hasn't reached 80 degrees yet, but I haven't done exhaustive testing so far. Just out of curiosity, what set...
