Re: Phanteks PH-TC14PE CPU Cooler Review

Thanks Bubba seeing as most third party coolers these days are aimed at the enthusiast as is most high end ram which generally doesn't come on stock green PCB's and have some rather large heat spreaders attached it's nice to see how it affects the use of these non standard dimms although I do wish t...

that's as maybe but SSE4.1 or 4.a for AMD has been around longer than V7 why it wasn't used is a mystery

you have noticed that [email protected] isn't using anything more than SSE2 had [email protected] been able to make use of SSE4 or above you'd see a huge improvement in PPD or so I assume or maybe it makes better use of OpenCL type calculations

Re: AMD FX-8150 Processor Review - Bulldozer Arrives

FX8150 + 990FX mobo + DDR3 = shitload less than Intel platform How? From New Egg, 8150 $279.99, 2600k $315, 2500k $219 Amazon has the 8150 for $269.99, but then you could pick up a 2600k at a Microcenter for $279.99. New Egg seems to be the preferred choice so I'll use that for comparison. Cheapest...

Re: AMD FX-8150 Processor Review - Bulldozer Arrives

If this launched back when Intel launched the 2550k/2600k processors, the pricing would have been more competitive. Right now, I can't see a compelling reason to choose AMD over Intel. that all depends on what you plan on using your PC for considering whats in my sig I don't call myself a enthusias...

Re: AMD FX-8150 Processor Review - Bulldozer Arrives

Hmm... Were you guys reading the same review I just did? If you look closer the performance isn't much better than a Thuban X6. That's pretty disheartening considering it's running two more cores at a higher frequency. Maybe this can be tweaked with a BIOS update. Intel overall is still the more ex...

Re: What Web Browser is Fastest for Windows in 2011?

I wouldn't expect much of a difference between IE9 and Maxthon 3 as Maxthon is just a front end GUI for IE's files hence why it's so much smaller as an install.exe compaired to IE9 Opera 11.5 is great though and only getting better by the update can't wait for a x64 bit version for windows now that ...
