Re: Biostar TZ77XE3 Motherboard Giveaway

Hi,

I would like to enter this contest. The most important feature I would say is basically the overall design in that how well laid out are the ports. Yes the design of the board is most important.

Re: Corsair Hydro Series H50 CPU Water Cooling Kit Review

To get the 3.5Ghz I have the host clock set to 175, and the CPU votage at 1.25v. As for it being AM3 compatible..there is a bracket for AM2/AM3 sockets. So stock vcore? I assume its a D0? Though I got to say nice review. I appreciate you mentioning the ambient temp. Not a lot of reviewers will do t...

Re: Corsair Hydro Series H50 CPU Water Cooling Kit Review

Couple questions:
What fsb and vcore was used to test overclock temps?

Also Amd am3 compatible?

And I would assume that blowing air in from rear would suck in hot video card exhaust?


Thanks.

Re: PC makes hissing sound under load...

With my particular case my hard drives are in another time zone so I can kind of hear it coming from the cpu area. So in my case I can tell you its not the hard drives and I'm pretty sure its not the psu...

Doesn't matter - not going to risk a super overclock anyhow.

Thanks.

Re: PC makes hissing sound under load...

That pretty much blows. I don't want my caps blowing up on me thats for sure. But as far as the performance increase from this mild overclock I think its enough at 2800mhz 350fsb to make a difference. I'm pretty sure I've helped loosen the SLI CPU constriction a little and my benches are up probably...

Re: PC makes hissing sound under load...

I believe it does. Its an Abit IN9-32X board. I'm already running at 350mhz fsb easy, just my multiplier is lowered to protect the cpu from the high volts it would need which is approx 1.42 volts to get it stable. I have a Thermalright ultra 120 heatsink on it and temps are good. Its just that ssss ...

Re: PC makes hissing sound under load...

Its not a hiss but more like an 'ssss' sound when the cpu is working or when an app is loading. Maybe its normal but who the hell knows... I read a review a while back on my motherboard and the reviewer noticed the same thing. So lets put this up to a vote. Should I push my cpu to 3150 mhz (350x9) f...

Re: PC makes hissing sound under load...

Someone suggested recently that its the capacitors that hiss when the voltage regulation on some particular boards isn't that great. Some have suggested its the ferrite chokes. Not sure what those are. Anyhow thats whats hissing. I just was wondering should I be concerned? Is that a normal by produc...

Re: PC makes hissing sound under load...

Its not the fan. It happens under load when priming when the cpu vcore is over 1.40v. Anyone else experience this?

PC makes hissing sound under load...

When I overclock and raise the voltage beyond 1.40v I start to hear a hiss coming from my board. This has limited my overclock in that I have settled on a mild OC at 1.365v where I would really like to take my e6600 to 3150 mhz at 1.42v though thats when I hear that hiss when stress testing. Is the ...

Re: Thinking about going i7, opinions?

Wait for the i7 950. I heard it overclocks better. Anyhow these days modern gpu's need all the horsepower they can get so get the fastest cpu you can afford. Thats what I think...

Re: Overclocking: FSB vs RAM speeds

Skip, You might want to check this article out. It has detailed the relationship of ram speed to fsb in regards to mb/s performance. Although it is limited to Abit's IN9-32X Max motherboard I found it very interesting. http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/mainboards/display/abit-in932x-max_9.html That a...
