Re: My Processor is freaking out, please help.

Update: I removed Zone Alarm. Not the problem. My CPU was still at 100%. Then, I removed HP software. Bingo was his NAME-O! Only one problem: Now my printer does not work. Yep, got a $200.00 paper weight at the moment. I'm going to re-install the HP software, cause I ugh, need to print and stuff. I'...

Re: My Processor is freaking out, please help.

So Sting3000...I was right? Zone Alarm was the problem? I'm sorry, but I have not had time to uninstall Zone Alarm yet. My family flew in for Turkey day and it has been bedlam at my house. I'll update when I get the chance to tweek in the next few days. I'm thinking it might be that damn HP softwar...

Re: My Processor is freaking out, please help.

Thanks for the tips. Has anyone heard that the Newer version of Norton is less intrustive on your ram? Someone told me that at the Geek Squad at Best Buy, but I want a second opinion. I'm thinking of uninstalling some of the HP software. I just have to figure out what is needed and what is not. :) T...

Re: Brand new System- Need OC/Optimization advice

Major_A, Where do I begin? I have always wanted to try this, but did not know how. You are very kind to take so much time to explain this to me. I'm going to try this and let you know how it goes. If I REALLY screw up, I can always upgrade to the componets that Zertz recommended. Either way, (I thin...

Re: Brand new System- Need OC/Optimization advice

If you want to keep most of your setup, a good upgrade would be a S939 Opteron http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2+50001028+40000343+1050706979+1302820275+1051707439&name=Socket+939 the 165/170 are pretty good deals and they usually overclock well. But if I was you, since ...

Re: Intel 1333FSB Processors Arrive - QX6850 and E6750 Reviewed

I LOVE gaming, and streaming video of Movie trailers, and that is about it other than listening to music, etc. Well bar really new games, like Alan Wake, most are single threaded. Unless you are doing a lot of video/music encoding then you won't see and difference in the 2 to 4 core jump. Personall...

Alright, but if YOU had $400.00 w/ the configuration I have above, what would you upgrade?

Re: Brand new System- Need OC/Optimization advice

Thanks, I'm going to check that out. However, should I just get another processor now that they are much cheaper?

Thoughts?

Thanks!
