The rebuild (updated) - Page 2

Are those two drives in RAID 0 ? Besides that, I think your best option would be getting some more processing cores. Although at 4.2 Ghz (nice ) the performance gain (if any, depends on the game) may not justify the price of a new CPU.

Try unlocking again and play around with ACC settings, perhaps you can turn it into a tricore.

Yep CPU over GPU in this case. A single 5870 will eat through any game at any resolution (up until it's V-Ram is used up).

Ok, So last time I unlocked I was running at 4.2ghz @ stock volt. This time I'm going to stress test overnight at stock speeds.

Just a little update. the wiring doesnt look as godly as it does in my avatar because I have a new case coming so no need to tidy up.

These parts I have inthe system are just spare parts, such as the 600w psu, mobo, and ram.

Whats to come monday is : 8GB Ram, 1080w psu, another 5870, and a new case

Oh boy, I honestly hope to god you get that RAM replaced soon. OCZ gold (often rated 1333 CL9.... 1.65V) is pretty much the worst garbage on this planet.

I hope that you get a better case because that case looks awful...
