Thanks for your feedback Alfwich
Ill take your advice and get a better cooler, Ive read I only need to spend about Â£30 for one witch will do the job along with the heat transferring paste.
Yea im pretty happy with having 4 cores each at 3.2! thats like having 4 pentium 4s lol (my old rig! such a jump), I dont think ill bother stressing it too much with a further clock even with the cooling, or do you think its all ok if the temps are low enough? If so then why not overclock as much as possible, i would just be worried about the processor having a firey premature death.
Yep I use scaling so that the image fills the hole screen, had to tinker around a bit with CCC to find the options as I was getting about a half inch space around the image. Quality and performace wise Im sure all games are different, I would play battlefield with everything up full 1920x1080 as it runs perfect so I havent tried any lower, I only downscale for metro for performance and dragonage as text and icons are tiny on a 40 inch screen lol especilly when siting on the sofa.......Ive tested metro with all settings and resolutions since I wanted to be able to have everything at its best, but at 1920 even dx10 it slows down a little, only a little but im not happy unless a games running silky smooth and everything up high...........but I honestly cant tell much difference between resolutions, but thats maybe because im sitting too far back. Do you play metro with your 5870? just curious as to how it runs since its a ***** of a game. I agree you gotta have all the textures up nice an full
Thanks Otl I feel a bit better with your clarafication on the temps, I dont think 80 is too bad but still it should be lower, even if its not realistically going to reach those temps. You english is fine mate all feedback is good lol
