Thanks !!!!
Nice! Sounds like your liking your SSD as well. I love it, to be honest. Even though it has a very small capacity i'm using it mainly for booting. Like, all I have on start up (for the ssd) is windows, msn, skype, and just the bare necessities to run windows. And lol, me too, i love watching it boot up. Once it hits windows and says loading (just before the desktop), you barely have ANY time to read it, or just get a glimpse of it and then everything just pops up on the screen at once (besides msn). It's crazy awesome. xD

As for games, try to run them at native res, even if it means you're lowering the settings, the image quality is better as my previous experiments.
haha xD; you got 2 projects going? got links?

well so far the only game that doesn't support the native res was penumbra but for every other game, i just don't know what to do. i'm so use to seeing frames drop under 60 and hover around the 30-40s at some points, now i just crank it to the max and it never drops under 60. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO DO....hahah im practically trying to get the rig to under-perform....plus i haven't overclocked it yet, still seeing if everything is stable.....stress tests working out fine tho (even tho ati tool did have a problem at first....must just because of it being so out of date -- maybe). i wonder what voltages i would need to get the quad to be stable? i was able to post just by unlocking....i wonder if thats a sign this is a lucky chip

maaaan, your current rig is so much better then what i was previously gaming on...the laptop. even the old gaming rig.

but it is awesome man. fully custom rig, but i did go overboard. with the hdds, ssd, psu, things like that, i could of easily went with less. but man ya, this is great, a 1950ish build....now just waiting on the headphones and sound card and then it'll feel like a entirely different build again xD




thanks for the comments guys. haha, i can now finally join in with a bunch of the clubs and whatnot on here xD

My SSD doesn't do that anymore

One of the projects is in my sig, I'll update soon (working/school from 9am to 10pm...) since I've got back to it.
The other one is a MotY so first I'll see if I can finish it by time and otherwise you'll see it in the contestants

lol it doesn't anymore? D: i thought SSDs go faster when you put more and more space on it? btw, do you have TRIM on yours? I don't know how to activate it?

alright, i'll check out your rig (i don't know if it would work on these computers at work D: ). is the sig te MotY? btw, good luck with that

unfortuantely non so far. xD reason being is that i haven't actually fully tried yet. im going to play with the voltages, ram, etc., a bit latter and before i play with that i want to bench the system at stock, stress the crap out of it some more, and then wait a week. test the fans, etc. just to make sure. all my other systems i used to wait at least a couple months or so before i started overclocking them (first one i didn't learn overclocking until it was years old).

Ya so I was unable to unlcok my cores they are there, somewhat functional, but completely unstable. it'll unlock but won't load into windows

so i decided to overclock instead. so far im at a 17x multi, 1.44v, a 238.3 fsb, and a 1900mhz ht link. sitting at a nice healthy 4.05ghz without exceeding 39.5 C.

the 5850 is running fine around 800/1100 but won't really let me push much further. temps don't seem to pass 55C
post #278 of 278
Well I would say 4ghz on 2 cores is plently for games and still plenty fast.
And u can upgrade to the 6 core for pretty cheap also and overclock that one.
