Hello!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey all!

So I've been lurking around here for a while now, especially since I completed my new build getting all kinds of wonderful advice from you guys, so I thought I should return the favour and sign up and say thanks for the help !

I've been building my own systems for years now (think this is probably my 4th or 5th now!) It's something I love doing and find that I am always learning new things. Certainly come a long way from my first ever build to this one anyway.

I mainly base my specs for gaming, hence why I went fairly high-spec on my new build . One thing I haven't looked into before however is overclocking and this is something I am hopefully slowly getting the hang of. I'm running my 2600K at a stable 4.5GHz right now with load temps not much over 62/63c so pretty happy so far.

So look forward to being a part of the community and hope I am able to offer some help and advice in return for all the help I have received from lurking around!

Tom

Thanks . Yeah the 580 is amazing! Trying to find a game that will actually really push it at the moment. Considering my old build had a Radeon HD 4850 it's quite an upgrade.

Don't have The Witcher 2 yet unfortunately . I just did a benchmark test in GTA4 with everything set to very high and got 67fps. This is in 1920x1080.

Only got the 580 Matrix yesterday as a replacement for a GTX 560Ti which I had to RMA since it was artifacting all the time so I'm still running at the stock settings on the card. Next job is to look into the best overclock settings for it. I imagine I should be able to hit well over 70fps with a decent overclock

1.0.7.0 . Didn't try 1.0.6.0, just updated as soon as I installed the game so don't know if there is much of a difference in performance between the two
