I think I read somewhere that using 4 channel memory kits on anything other than an X79 chipset causes a drop in bus speed as opposed to using 2 of the 2 channel memory kits.

Edit2: Oh man also your name is brilliant, just noticed it now that it says Stupid American backwards biggrin.gif

The name is something I picked up from American Literature. Check out Horace Miner's "Body Ritual Among the Nacirema". It's a short essay that has been put on the web many times over. Shouldn't be hard to find at all. It's a great read that can be a very humbling experience to the right audience. I get a bit of flak from other Americans at times though. A lot of Americans hear the phrase "stupid american" and immediately think I'm some snobby european taking cheap shots at them. Hell, the players in SWTOR made an entire forum group dedicated to bashing my name and trying to get me banned. Bioware did make me change my forum name at one point because of all the hate I got from it. They did let me keep the name in game though.

There it is again. You are vital to this club. Like the brain to a human body. Thanks man. I was planning to buy 2 sets of 2x4GB of HyperX beasts. Unless the Vengeance is cheaper.

As far as I know the memory voltage support depends on your mobo at least on Haswell and Intel will honor the warranty. This is just my understanding, you should maybe check around on the googles, ( biggrin.gif ) but it should be fine. Lower CL (timings) is better. HyperX Beast is good. You will see timings increasing on higher frequency so for 2400 MHz CL 11 is fine. It is essentially a money waste, though unless you do lots of heavy woek lile video editing, encoding or benchmarking. In games it doesn't make a noticeable difference over 1866

I can confirm what our OCD king says. Also you were propably right that I should have let the shop cut the acrylic, but it was good practise and I can live with some "inconsistency" in my panel. I will try to post pics soon just been busy guys biggrin.gif

Oh Nicerema,
I thought my name was good and clever. Then you come up with that? How the hell am I supposed to compete with you? Good thing I don't know you in real life. Cos otherwise you're gonna take all my friends and leave me by myself frown.gif

And AlDyer,
You should of made a side panel like mine! Like you said it's good practice though. Can't wait for the pics. Is it that bad though? If it's only a little bit don't worry about it. The most perfect thing about everything is it's imperfections.

The name is something I picked up from American Literature. Check out Horace Miner's "Body Ritual Among the Nacirema". It's a short essay that has been put on the web many times over. Shouldn't be hard to find at all. It's a great read that can be a very humbling experience to the right audience. I get a bit of flak from other Americans at times though. A lot of Americans hear the phrase "stupid american" and immediately think I'm some snobby european taking cheap shots at them.

I checked it out some, i'm usually not much into reading all that much but if it interests me i sure will give it a go. And funny how they created a whole forum just to bash on a name that's actually very clever and also represents as you said a story about anthropology, and they reacted in the way they did since the story about Nacirema as far as i understood it, is about people taking themselves too seriously and yet deep down they're just animals with predictable tendencies.

Don't worry dude, we all got something we contribute with just be happy we aren't all the same, because the world sure would be a grey and boring place if we were. If you really wanna feel depressed take a look at this illustration http://matt.might.net/articles/phd-school-in-pictures/

Well, I have bad news.

So I was happy with my new SLI setup. I tried out a few games like Far Cry 3, Metro 2033 and Counter-Strike: Source, and everything seemed fine. Today I decided to try Crysis 2, but as soon as the game loaded my screen went white and my computer was locked. I did a hard reset, tried again, this time part of the screen went black and part grey (they were both horizontally aligned perfect rectangles), and my computer reset itself. Variations of this happened a couple more times; sometimes the game would actually play for a bit before the lockup and/or reset came, but it always eventually did. Then I decided to troubleshoot.

I pulled out my "new" (I got it from EVGA's B stock) 660 Ti, and the game seemed to run fine on my original card. Then I tried only my new one and it seemed to work again (note that since these problems happened very soon as the game started, I was testing it for pretty short periods). I the same card in the second (the one that I wasn't using before) PCIe slot, and the problem surfaced again. At this point I started swapping the VGA cables around the PSU's respective slots, and even tried a different cable, but it always kept happening. At one point, when I was trying the new card by itself, the game played for longer than before, only to break again.

It was all very dizzying and I couldn't quite figure out what was causing the problem; obviously I first thought of the PSU, as it seemed to be a power issue. I did look in the Event Viewer which listed a critical error due to power loss. But there was also the option of it being the B stock 660 Ti.

So finally I tried my original card by itself and I played the game for quite a while, much longer than I was able to in any previous test, which makes me think it's indeed the second card. The only other thing I noticed is that there's some sort of buzzing sound that seems to come from the PSU at certain times (I noticed it usually happens when the cards first render a scene, for one), which before was making me shift the blame to it, but that contradicts this last test.

So, does anyone have any tips? Anything I can do to clearly determine what's wrong? I was thinking of hooking my system up to my old PSU, but it's a very old 600W Cooler Master model which I don't think is even bronze certified, or SLI certified (it only has one pair of 6-pin cables). Would it be safe to do this? If I tested the SLI setup with it and it worked, I guess it would mean it actually is the new PSU.

Oh man, that sucks.
If it persists then i must say its a bad gpu.
Could you rma it?
Have you got a different psu you could test it on?
Driver issues?
Its a bit weird you're getting issues when you just got a new card...




and as we were talking about room earlier heres my new gaming room. I switch my bedroom with my gaming room around.
I need a new lick of paint. Have no idea what colour though, we had leak a few months ago so look past my horrible walls.

Could you rma it?
Have you got a different psu you could test it on?
Driver issues?
Its a bit weird you're getting issues when you just got a new card...




and as we were talking about room earlier heres my new gaming room. I switch my bedroom with my gaming room around.
I need a new lick of paint. Have no idea what colour though, we had leak a few months ago so look past my horrible walls.


I dunno if I can as I'm not in the US anymore, but I'll try if it comes down to it.

As I said I do have my previous PSU but it's old and bad. I read up more on it and it got bad reviews, and some research in a review indicated it's not safe to pull more than like 450W from it, which I would be doing if I tried to hook up my whole system to it.

The interesting thing is that I've been testing the newer card alone again and now I don't get restarts, but rather it seems like the nvidia kernel driver crashes. I was looking at the event log and there's a lot of instances of the driver crashing and recovering, mixed in with application crashes for Crysis 2. When I was getting this sometimes the screen went black and then came back on, and other times it didn't come back unless I switched to the onboard graphics and then back.

The problem is that nothing is entirely consistent : / Earlier I was just getting the kernel power error by itself, then it seems I got it after some nvidia crashes, then it's just the nvidia crashes without the kernel power error, plus this new Crysis 2 application crash.

Gonna do some more testing I guess...

Looks nice dude, all dem monitors, and nice you used my wallpapers thumb.gif

Honestly in terms of coloring i would just go with a base color like white or something close, it makes the room look a lot spacier and brightens it up a bit.
