Re: Corsair Force 40GB Boot Drive SSD Review

I'm concerned about the motherboard you used. It does not support SATA III. The RealSSD C300 is being misrepresented in the latest solid state drive reviews. I use to think the RealSSD was one of the top performing SSD but in the latest reviews, it seems the performance is all over the place.

Re: AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Processor Performance Review

Does turbo core still kick in if you've overclocked the processor already? eg. 3 cores in use or less at 4.2 GHz automatically goes to 4.7 GHz. it can, but you disable it that high unless you're doing a suicide run for max clock, because it causes great instability because it does not appropriately...

Re: Zotac GeForce GTX 470 Video Card Review

honestly i read this review first before apoptosis's review and i did think that this card was a better card than the 5870 in performance. with that said, im sure people dont read one review with only two three games tested and then buy the product itself. yes the article was misleading but i guess ...

Re: What's the go with Nvidia merchandise?

There's nothing wrong with how nvidia does business. they believe the prices of their products stay competitive with the competition. ati and nvidia stay in business by making profits. you can't ask them or ati to make a smaller profit margins. regarding the heat with the cards, if there are problem...

Re: Gigabyte p55a-ud4p wont start

so does your psu turn on or not? try the switch on the back of the psu or check if the power switch pin is connected to your mb properly. unsupported memory should not stop from power up.

Re: Board Suggestions for a 965BE

if you really want sli, 980a isnt a bad choice, the thing is asus doesnt have it with ddr3. i would recommend the MSI NF980-G65. it has ddr3 up to 2133mhz, 3 way sli, and good cpu overclocks according to reviews. this board cannot handle extreme overclocks.

Re: XFX 5770

in terms of performance, even the 4870 is slightly better due to more memory bandwidth eventhough it has less computing power.

Re: XFX 5770

yeah the h57 board is fine. its saying there is one pci express 2.0 x16 and 1 pci express x4 slot that is not 2.0. but this is kinda of weird cause i read the h57 has only 8 pci express lanes. probally gonna lose 2-10 percent between x8 to x16

Re: AMD Athlon II X2 255 Dual Core 3.1GHz Processor Review

this may be a dumb question but if the multiplier is locked, how'd you decrease the multiplier to 14? is only increase locked?
