Heads up, S939ers!

thlnk3r and wife have successfully unlocked the newest core to their family unit. thlnk3r's family is now a tri-core, since their new son entered our world earlier this morning.

Mommy and daddy are tired but very happy, and the new kid on the block is healthy. They'll be going home in a couple of days.

Congratulate thlnk3r, if you wish, in this thread, or in this other thread I made.

thlnk3r sends his warm regards to everyone, as well!

Man I'm constantly rear-ending the stupid computer AI racers. They're some freakin wussies in to the corners.

I only run automatic because I have to keep the volume down fairly low cuz the kids and wife are sleeping; I can't hear the shift points.
No matter having traction control, ABS, and stability assist off really steps up the difficulty.

And man I wish you could save replays, I was screwing around last night seeing how many G's I could generate in a wreck (317 was the highest I got), at any rate, I caused this spectacular crash where my car bounced off of one wall, went flying over the track killing 2 more drivers and then blasting another wall. I was seriously spectacular.

So my theory is that by turning up my GPU fan speed it keeps the mobo temps down to where that don't happen.

I kill most if not all background tasks that I don't need w/the exception of Xfire and Steam. I actually launch the game through steam but have it on DVD so it has to have the DVD in the drive as well

I was thinking it was a hard drive issue.

I have the same problem w/Burnout Paradise The Ultimate Box when I try to run it w/SLI enabled.

It's a weird thing and I think it's related to my mobo. IDK I guess I could get a different mobo and if the problem goes away then I know it's the mobo but that's just more BS that I don't want to go through if you know what I mean. I'd prolly just end up w/different problems at that point any how. I should figure it out though as I had issues w/Crysis as well and I never go to the bottom of that one either all though I think Crysis plays a lot smoother in Win 7 x64 IIRC vs Xp X64

check this out guys. a very rare un releases OPTY 190 http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...E:B:SS:US:1123
Interesting Never seen a 190 before.

As for your temps, a NB that's too hot can cause issues for sure. Although, I think these ported games just run better with Vsync enabled. Even Mass Effect had tearing issues until I turned Vsync on.

Crysis is one of those games that has a hard time running smoothly on anything, really. Although, it did run pretty smoothly on my rig, but then again I am running DX9. Crysis is also VERY CPU frequency dependent, so it's no wonder that it runs poorly on older/slower systems.

But we'll see how my new rig (when I assemble it) tears through it.

I like the triggers, I had to turn up the dead zone so they're more variable. I'm still experimenting with the various control sensitivities, I've found this is really helpful especially with traction control disabled.

Is it just me or did you have issues driving the open wheel cars too? I'm so used to sliding the "normal" cars that driving something with grip was kind of shocking. Sliding F1, Indy, KART cars = bad.



On a side note, do you guys know of any articles about monitors and eye strain? What are some qualities in a monitor that helps reduce it and so on. I was thinking about this last night; I bet a lot of users on OCN look at a monitor for several hours a day, just makes sense to get something that isn't actually damaging your eyes by causing eye strain.

No prob man.

The Cablemange is not terrible, it takes some cable ties, and about an hour of work I'd say.

Pretty easy case to work with. Though, you're limited to 3 HDD's, and 2 ODD slots.

What is going into the rig? At 1080p, 4x AA, everything else maxed, I get about 50 FPS average in Crysis. That is with a 3.65 GHz Deneb and an HD 5970 @ 800/1200.

The HDD's aren't an issue, as I don't believe that I'll use more than 2, and I only ever use 1 DVDcombo drive so that's not a big deal.

i7 920, 3GB OC Golds, Evga x58 3xSLI. This is actually the reason I went with this Seasonic 850w. I think it should get rather comical running XP.

In DX9 mode, everything maxed 8xAA, 16xAF I average around 50-60 FPS. With the occasional dip, but that seems to be some poor textures as there is no reason for it to drop.

It really is a beautiful game though. Pretty cool story. I've been playing through warhead, but for some reason I get worse frame rates in it than in the first one. Even with AA off it literally makes about 0 difference in framerates. Wonder why?

I also checked out Cryostasis, and in that I seem to get some ridiculously low fram rates for no reason. I look at GPU usage and it's barely at 50% on both cards, yet I'm getting 25-30 FPS? What gives? Maybe because it's "Nvidia, the way it's mean to be played".

An hour on my time. It really depends on how much of a perfectionist you are with it.

An hour of my time gets this:

Hey guys, I'm an oldschool 939er. I'd still have mine if I didn't get fed up, and just go space age AM3. But uh, I got Opty 180 CCB1E 0550 sitting here, and some parts on the way (mobo, 420+ etc) and I'm gonna be resurrecting this chip, hopefully.

What are your guys' thoughts on this stepping. I hear its rare as it gets. It arrived a dud. I installed it 3 times, doing different things to clean it up, wouldn't post. What it DID show was Opteron 180, but wouldn't progress to quick memory test before finishing boot. So IDK if it WAS the chip completely, or the mobo. I think CPU is fine. I can't wait.

What is the chance my mobo wo't be compatible with Opteron CPUs tho? I looked at the compatibility list of the mobo, not listed, BUT, theres a few other mobos that don't have official Opty support, but that do anyways, couple ASUS and DFI boards coem to mind. Mine is a Asus A8N-E. Looks decent...

Just wanted to let you guys know, peace.

An hour of my time gets this:
My cases typically look like this. I hate having my cases a mess, my Asus vento 3600 was a pain to manage internally. The case has basically nothing for cable management.

I'll have to snap a pic of my current getup.

PS: I've wire managed car audio for a long time so hiding wiring is something I do along the way of putting a rig together. It only takes me roughly....30 minutes to put together a rig from start to finish.

It sounds like the board was the culprit with it failing the quick mem test. Possibly bad RAM.
An Asus A8N-E should be just fine for the opty. Every board I've come across an opty works just fine in, even though they're not officially supported.

No idea about the stepping. I'm sure txtmstrjoe or blits would have some more insight about it however.
