Re: Finally built a new one

Congrats! I saw a memory cooler still in the box. Are you going to use it? I think your rig looks great! One more graphic card and you will be set! You have enough room in there for a lap dance :lol: I can't use the memory cooler with the cpu cooler I chose. I will probably change it out when I add...

Yeah, I meant second PSU. So I just connect a green and black wire together from the 20/24 pin connector and I'm good to go?

So I haven't done anything about this yet, but just thougt of something I could try. I have a Antec 430w PS in an old system and was thinking I could hook that up to just the video card to test it. That should be more than enough power if used all on it's own right?

Do you have a multimeter? You should check/stress the voltages using the 9500pro. If they fluctuate or are out of spec, then it's the PSU. Nope, but I could probably get my hands on one or buy one they are pretty cheap. How would I check the voltages? I have never actually used one before. Also doe...

Try lowering your overclock, or even underclock the CPU. Tried it. Also try booting with one stick of ram. Tried it. Image corruption at startup can be the gfx card, psu, cpu or memory. You could also try running Memtest. I have ruled out cpu or memory. I tried my old 9500 pro and the system boots ...

Thanks for the info guys! It looks like I am going to write this one off. I will have trouble with the RMA since I didn't keep any of the original packaging or heatsink that the card came with. I am now looking at a new card. My choices are these two http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx...

Dead video card or not enough power?

Back in February I purchased a new video card and it had been working great until about a month ago. My system will not load windows fully and gives a blurry image (not really blurry, but more of a broken image) even in the bios. I installed an old 9500 pro and the system boots right up. Could I be ...

Yeah, I guess it does seem a little harder, but much more fast paced as well. I'm enjoying it.

Anyone playing FEAR Extraction Point expansion pack?

I just started playing a couple of days ago. Man it's fun and they have definately taken the gore factor way up. I was still going back and playing FEAR quite a bit before this came out. It's by far my favorite FPS.
