post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I just wanted to say hello and ask a quick question. I just put together the below computer and was wondering if I should used the PS connectors for the VGA that are not modular or should I use one of the Blue Modular connectors for the VGA. the reason I ask is I get a lot of stutter when I play Rift and was wondering if I was drawing to much from the one part of the PS.

My Rig:
Asus P8Z68 V-PRO
i5 2500k OC'ed to 4.2
Corsair 8gb Vengence Memory at 1866
Corsair 850HX PS
Asus GTX 560 TI
HAF-932
Corsair H60 push/pull config


Thank you in advanced I have learned a lot from here already being a lurker.

the nonmodular ones should be used first. it shouldnt have any effect on stutter either way

Thanks, I didn't think it would affect anything since every other game I play I have no issues.

Also I have ran Prime95 and memtest86 for 24 hours with no issues and my CPU never went over 60 Degrees C so I know it is not an overheating problem.

It must have something to do with the game. There was a mini update and it seems to be working fine.
