As for underclocking your vid card.........

That would be modifying it, hence making it less stable, therfore being just as bad as overclocking it

stock is stock..


and where's the link already, it could be fun

Underclocking your card does not make it unstable

I run a 2.8GHz AMD and an 8800GT @ KO Speeds and it maxes out CoH

What is this guy on about...


Quote:
-Intel quad Q6600
-2x raptor harddisk ( also works fine with normal hd its only minor difference)
-1x nvidia 8800 Gtx this is the700+mb one theirs also a cheaper one but You will notice alot of difference between the 300+ mb ones since i did just put one in my wifes pc i know what i am talking about , and you sayed in your post you wanna play like a smooth oiled machine you will need to choose for either 2 x the smaller ones or go with mine or a ultra.
-4 gb corsair memory(ddr2 800mhz ones.) I am even running on vista 32 bit edition so it will only use like 3 gb ram.

Heres the big one

[Me] Miss_Chief, please please tell me your not running that E8400 at stock...Because that my friend is a pure crime Infact...running anything at stock is a pure crime =P





[Her] Yes, it's running at stock. When the most demanding thing I ask of it is running winamp, CoH, 3 IE tabs, MSN messenger and sometimes my email I don't need it to run any faster. It's been proven that in games today the graphics card is more of a bottleneck than the CPU. Crysis and CoD4 wouldn't run any faster on any CPU faster than a 2.2GHz Dual core with the same graphics card. I'll have to replace my 8800GT before I need to overclock the CPU. I know I'd get somewhere close to 4GHz if I wanted to but don't see the point at present.

So i said...

well I bought an e8400 as it was very cheap at the time $200. And I'm a first time builder and I'm still waiting on some products to arrive still but I probably won't overclock in the beginning atleast for the sole purpose I don't want to screw anything up. I have some people on here though that are gonna guide me thru the process of it. But does overclocking really boost your performance or do you overclock just to boost up your 3dmark06 scores?

Actually... wrong

I underclocked my 8800GT so much for a laugh, the fan stopped spinning because the RPM was so low, then when it got more graphically intensive it couldnt start spinning again...lol

Good times with rivatuner.

I never would have guessed...

After seeing the post I have to say I agree with the suggestion... Having troubles with a factory OC'd card, lower clock speed will help that if RMA is not an option...

As for Exxx or Qxxx at stock speeds....

My buddy is a networking guy, and really showed me alot about PC's early on, but he was also strogly against OCing, til about a month ago when he was about to go buy a new C2D 2.4 or better and get rid of his E6300.....

I OC'd the E6300 to 3.0, hes happy, and no longer against OCing..

but swears its going to explode any minute now

My mate is ignorant and wont let me OC the computer i built for him =/ What a pleb

He is 'Oh ive heard about all the bad stories and things that can go wrong'

Yeah...did you see the giant mushroom cloud above my house the otherday?

was my CPU...

Oh and on the suggestion about downclocking

Some 8800GT's simply don't work with City of Heroes very well, as dont some 9600 series, some 7 series some 6 series some ATI X13, X16, X19, X8 series...

Yes, but it's a COH forum, not a OC'er forum.
